Apologies. It turns out I'm level 7...haven't played this guy in awhile, so I'm going to shift over to a different scenario. Sorry for the confusion.

Bom remembers to lead the red-eyed owl out.
Bom shrugs, grabs a tankard, drinks it down, belches,

"Eh. Nothing to get all worked up about. Dat and that bigfooted elephant of his could have solo'd that dungeon."

Is the River Kingdom considered a nation separate from Abaslom? Hmm. Pathfinder Wiki seems to say it's not a unified nation, but that still qualifies it as a nation separate from Absalom.

As I am OOC familiar with the mouther's DR, would you allow Bom to use his shield to bash for blunt damage without using the spikes?

Practically spesking, I would say that this would use the damage 1d3 damage die since its the normal shield bash. Personally I would advocate for allowing that damage die to be upgraded from Lead Blades. Technically, I don't think any of this is discussed in the rules, so it's purely GM's call.

Bom curses under his breath as the creature focuses on him. Having taking note of the mouther's resistance to his sword attack. He steps back, sheaths his sword, and draws his morningstar.

"Okay big mouth. Let's see if you like having your face pounded in."

Bom wil delay to see if anyone has more info on the creature. If not, he proceeds as follows.

Bom ignores the cacophony from the creature and tries to talk over it.
"A GIBBERING WHAT? Alas, I do not recognize many of the creatures in this dungeon."

Bom commands Uflur to stay put. Total Defense

As Bom passes the punchy gnome, "ARE YOU FEELING ALRIGHT?"

Bom shrugs and proceeds to move forward, drawing his sword and attacking with conviction.

For the record, I will be selling my Masterworks Agile Breastplate and purchasing some Mithral Agile Breastplate and giving it a +1 bonus.

So I think the mundane armor is 550 / 2 = 275gp I get back and the the armor is 4400 + 2000 = 6600. If I have another 3k left over, I will buy a swarmbane clasp.

If it's been more than one minute since Bom casts Lead Blades, he recasts it.

"Ready."

Bom's brow wrinkles at the creature's bossiness. "Not exactly in a position to be making demands, are you? What exactly are we getting out of this and risking this Athernon's wrath?"

Bom turn's to Xilt,
"I see no reason to waste a spell if it just requires a few swing of my sword."

I really disagree with that ruling....

I feel your pain. About a year ago, Paizo decided that Lead Blades doesn't work with a spiked shield. Despite Paizo's own langague (updated by Paizo) which says the spiked shield is "a weapon in its own right," Paizo insisted there's no benefit. Even worse, this ruling goes against the game logic. Paizo just flat out decided that somehow a 1d8 off-hand weapon was too good..lol.

How many Spiked Shield fighters did you see owning it in PF before the ruling? LIke zero. The group of PCs that could make consistent use of Lead Blades on a Spiked Shield on an off-hand attacks is exceedingly small. Yet, Paizo insisted on disallowing it despite the language..

Bom eyes the odd creature warily and tries to get s sense of the creature's motives during the interaction.

Sense Motive w/Guidance: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (9) + 3 = 12

But Bom knows he's not so good at reading people. When the others seem convinced that freeing the sphinx is the the way to go.

"I've got a sword that's made of that hard metal. I can probably hack my way through it."

Before Spackle makes his first attempt, Bom hits himself with Lead Blades.

"If this helmet is linked to that wizard, any chance it will sound the alarm if we free Melabdara?" Bom keeps one eye on that floating helmet and the other on the sphinx.

It is an official ruling. I don't know if it's been made into an actual FAQ, but it was a developer speaking as a developer. Paizo felt it was pretty cut and dry as they address that specific situation: Detect Magic + Spellcraft.

I'm just sharing the info as an FYI as it's come up twice now.

You can't Take 10 when you're distracted. Concentrating on a different task constitutes a distraction.

@As an FYI, you can't Take 10 on Spellcraft when using Detect Magic. One of the developers pointed out that you have to concentrate when using Detect Magic, that precludes Take 10. So any spell that requires concentration precludes a Take 10.

Asssuming the creature is still alive

Bom moves in against the flat-footed creature, drawing his sword. Standing in front of the scorpion, Bom calls to Ulfur, "Harass!" Ulfur leaps into action, flanking the scorpion and attempting to distract it.

Ulfur Aid Another with Flank: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (6) + 8 = 14

No sooner has Ulfur caught the creature's attention, Bom tries to chop the vermin in half.

Bom power attack with Aid Another and Flank: 1d20 + 13 ⇒ (9) + 13 = 22

Damage: 1d8 + 8 ⇒ (6) + 8 = 14

Bom nods, "A new pair of boots? For me? Xilt, you shouldn't have." Bom's tone belies the humor as the ranger enters the room cautiously.

Perception with HA: 1d20 + 13 ⇒ (20) + 13 = 33

Bom puts on the boots.

Assuming the boots are real, Bom's Init will go up +2 and so will Perception checks, Survival, and Stealth, while underground. Let me know if you want me to change my stat line.

Bom replenishes his wand of awarness tries to take notice of whatever he can.

Before Dat opens the door, Bom also uses his wand of lead blades and then draws his longsword.

Xilts check would have been resolved on his turn and he would have conveyed the knowledge on his turn, but you didn't provide it before advancing init, so he had no choice. But stuff happens in pbp, so we can just keep it as you have it

I delayed waiting for Xilt to indicate that the tunnel was safe, which is what he would have done on his turn, so I would have moved right after Xilt. To put it another way, I was simply waiting for you to resolve his K. check. Oh, I see you did not wait for Book to take his turn. So be it. That will be Ulfurs attack when it is his turn.

Bom delays for Uflur to attack

Bite vs Adaro: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (13) + 8 = 21

Damage: 1d6 + 5 ⇒ (5) + 5 = 10

If that kills the sharkman

Bom sheaths his sword and tries to grab the adaro's weapon.

Bom sees the narrow passage and as he is about to enter, he hears Xilt's warning and decides, he'll wait until the wizard says its safe to enter.

@GM - I want to commend you on a minor detail in how you are handling Init. I appreciate that Bom, who is at the bottom of the Init order, is not being lumped in with the top of the Init order in a block. A lot of GMs overlook this and it ends up robbing a round of action from the person who goes last.

So nicely done.

With the large prehistoric elephant mostly out of the way, Bom and Ulfur advance, but seeing Dat is unharmed, decides not to interfere unless called upon.

"What an odd place this has turned out to be."

Bom hears the sound of battle, but can't see much on account of the woolly mammoth's hindquarters.

"What is the source of the delay?" Bom turns to Ulfur, "Can you see anything?"

Bom shrugs and waits until he's needed.

Still was going to interact with the Owl

Owl:
As the owl eats the fey, "We must continue on and explore this place. In order to make good on my promise of bringing you to the surface, is there anything here what would prevent my return?"

As before Bom enchants himself with his wand of awareness before proceeding.

This is going to be standard practice for Bom and he is always going to burn it on Init. Won't' make any difference here, but I'll still burn it to establish the practice in case I forget to post it before the next encounter.

Bom distances himself from the group, invokes his jade wayfinder, and then entreats the owl, first whispering to Ulfur,

Bom takes note of the owl.

Take 10 on Nature = 17 to see if an owls have red eyes.

"I've never heard of an owl with red eyes, but..." Bom shrugs and pulls out his wand of spieak with animals.

Bom turns to Ulfur, "Does that owl smell like an owl?"

Bom calls to the bird. "Owl, how come you to this place?"
