I don't know that Marny would have helped all that much with all those mirror images around. We were going after a mage and your character was supposed to be a mage killer. The fact that a mage doesn't need to limit movement to a 5' step to get off spells meant that it was next to impossible to use the disruption.

I was planning on taking step-up and disruption with one of my characters and I am nixing that idea in a hurry after seeing how it failed. I just posted a question about keeping a mage next to the character in Advice and we'll see what they say.

I'm not totally sold on going dragon, so if someone else wants to don't stay quiet for my sake. The can have it for the asking.

I had Marnarius volunteer because I figured that is what he would have done, not because I have any desire to switch. If you want him to stay, you will need to role-play something that would convince him and he will.

Marnarius grabbed that. Even though I'm probably swapping him out for the dragon, he should probably take it unless you really think you can find a use for it. Though, if I AM the dragon, that lance might come in useful for one of you :}

This time remember to case Vanish or Invisibility before you dash across the room to the rescue. Very Pathfinderish of you by the way :)

P.S. In retrospect I'm very glad I had such poor initiative. SOMEONE was going to go down when both the gunslinger and the Paladin had a free round to blast away. If you had been invisible then someone else would have bought the farm. I'm eternally grateful because Marnarius might have been that someone..

Marnarius jumps at the chance to partner, once again, with Wolona.

I'll go with you. We made a good team in the past and I have little use for manuscripts. Though I'll miss out on eliminating Zey, hopefully we'll run into that perky little bard and I can put her in a deep grave, or gullet from the looks of some of our allies. I was *this* close to pissing all over her back in the gardens. Suicidal, I know, but what a way to go!

Marnarius mimics her voice as best he can, Oh, the pathfinders. How noble, how illustrious. I think I'll write a book or sing a song!

Makes me want to hurl.

His brain catches up with his mouth and he asks

Uh, what exactly ARE your objectives?

Might be a good idea to do a sense motive or knowledge roll to see what might be an incentive for the mightier of the group.

Study the wyvaran
sense motive: 1d20 + 11 + 2 ⇒ (18) + 11 + 2 = 31 on the wyvaran

I was thinking that maybe the dragon could be persuaded with valuables, like the breastplate? I don;t want to do the roll myself, since Marny has pathetic diplomacy, but maybe Raj could get a bonus from the dragon if he offered it some incentive?

Looks like I need to go with bluff

"These Pathfinders are nothing but chumps. I could have taken all three of these guys myself! I took out the Paladin over there with a weapon I've never even used before, just for practice - never even took a scratch!"

bluff: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (8) + 8 = 16

Seeing very little reaction to his best shot at bluffing, he adds, more honestly this time,

"I suppose if you want to go back to your cushy lives on the other side and miss an opportunity like this, its your life. But I've been waiting for years for an opportunity like this and I sure as hell am not going to miss out."

I'm just going to stay away from bluffing from now on, I think. Beginning to feel like Shi did during that battle.

I was not intending to fight her. That would be stupid. It's just that my character sheet says Marnarius knows her well but I know zilch myself other than what you just said. Hard to role-play a relationship like that when all you know is what her name is a little description blurb.

About to respond, Marnarius shuts his mouth, waiting to see what comes out of Rataji's mouth THIS time. He is not disappointed when he hears another spiel of mixed truths and lies, though he is surprised to notice that most of what he says is truth.

Well he sucks in a fight and likes to dive into trouble without regard to who he drags with him, but, by Norgorber, he sure knows how to spin things.

While Raj is doing his stuff, Marnarius sidles up to Wolona and says, "Hail and well met Woloma. I'm sure glad you could make it to the party! Any good necromancers back there? Might as well put these three idiots to use." He gestures to the rapidly degenerating bodies and then notices the way that dragon is eyeing the gunslinger.

Nothing tastes like Pathfinder, I guess.

Marnarius has spent considerable time with Wolona, so can you tell me what her class is? Also a little more about her gear would help.

It looks like Joli and Marnarius take the rings of protection. Speak up or forever hold your peace!

Also, nobody has claimed the Wayfinder. I think that should go to Z.

I think you missed the fact that Marnarius already got to them. But with a little adjustment...

Marnarius looks a little surprised as Vera tugs the arrows right out of his hands, stifles an embarrassing '*gack*' in mid breath, and says "Well, you are welcome to the arrows if you think you will get better use of them, but I'm a bit short after sticking a bunch in the half-orc."

He points to the arrow-ridden body (well maybe not quite 'ridden', but there is at least one notable arrow sticking out of her heck) as he speaks.

"How about we split them?"

Marnarius snarls, then says, "Once I got him in melee range he turned out to be a wimp. But, between the damage done by the foos and the fireball, I'm looking about as beat up as you are. I suggested drawing because all of us have been targets and all of us could use a little extra protection. I'm a fair guy."

I just have to know, did all of the gymnastics I went through to keep a spell from being cast actually matter? Would she have escaped had Marnarius missed?

Marnarius has not taken anything that would be contested except the arrows which he could easily be convinced to split or part with. Just ask IC. The rings, however, will need a group discussion since I think they are usable by more than two of us. I know Z does not need a ring, but most everyone else could.

Marnarius will take the arrows, the +1 Breastplate (which he will don), and the Greatsword from the Paladin. I'm pretty sure nobody else is interested in any of that.

Marnarius picks up the dropped scythe, closes the doors, and posts guard at the main entrance with his oil of hold portal ready. Though extremely curious about the Paladins gear, he knows that the magical types can get more info than he ever could.

Hope you don't mind if I get in on the fun since you are running out of steam. Here are 10 from me.

Maxims of Highly Effective Pathfinders P.4:

41) If you are about to open a Big Door that you think has bad guys behind it, it probably does. It's not instinct, it's empirically driven basic logic. Call it metagaming if you want, but really, how many times does your character have to be jumped after you open the Big Door before you assume she's learned her lesson?
42) BEFORE you open that door, cast a few buff spells. You will not regret it.
43) Corollary to rule 32 - If it talks to you before attacking, send the bard to the front and let him talk too. You may be able to talk your way out of an encounter and get a boon. Unless you are playing the bard, then talk from the back, or, preferably, the middle (see maxim 21).
44) If another group of adventurers is messing with your plans, assume its the Consortium.
45) If your group is invited to a party, you are going to need the diplomacy skill to get a boon in society play. Bluff is a bad idea and intimidate is right out. And what is it about PFS scenarios always wanting you to dress up for these things? Don't they realize that the majority of Pathfinders are more comfortable in dusty armor and old magical cloaks? Sheesh.
46) Don't buy a horse. Mounts are only allowed if they are your friend. The Centaurs WILL find you and punish you if you travel by land and the captain won't let you bring it if you travel by sea. If neither of these apply, you are probably going caving, and, well, that doesn't work out too well either.
47) Don't buy food or camping equipment (particularly if you have a strength or 8 or less) unless the GM makes a big deal about it. If you don't bring it up, the GM probably won't either.
48) If you get a chance to ask the venture captain questions before the mission, ask. But, even if you do, you can always expect to forget to ask something you will regret not asking later.
49) If that other guy brings his OP barbarian, cast a bless and take all the credit. Loudly. Until he repents, preferably by wielding a dagger instead of that oversized monster weapon.
50) Do NOT always try to be the center of attention. Too much attention from the GM is a Bad Thing, particularly when the other players start rooting for the GM.

Z, you get three attacks at +11 courtesy of haste+flurry, plus your attack at +6.

"Surround her, everyone."

I'm hoping either Z drops her or Raj gives Shi the flank, or I may have to do a dash in order to set up the flank myself.

Thanks for the warning. I updated the post. I thought I had specified but that was in the last round so I cut and pasted it over.

If she survives the onslaught of the other PCs and tries another spell, here are my rolls. Marnarius will ready an action to attack the Sorcerer if she starts casting a spell, tries to duck behind the tapestry (or some other action that would look obviously like an escape attempt - Marny thinks there may be a secret door back there), or if she moves more than 30'.

attack:

To hit 1d20+10, +1 haste, +2 study bonus: 1d20 + 13 ⇒ (8) + 13 = 21
Damage 1d8+5 +2 studied: 1d8 + 7 ⇒ (4) + 7 = 11

Uh oh, hope someone else eliminates her first.

I don't think you get any extra attacks when you take a move action like that.

I disagree. One Dimension Door and we have major issues. Unless I think the odds of taking her down with one round of attacks is better than disrupting her spell, I'm going to keep on disrupting her spells. And my bow attacks just don;t do that much damage. But I really don't think she is going to last another round. That last spell was her last chance to escape.

So I can ready and attack once or delay and attack all three times but miss the opportunity to disrupt the spell. At this point it is far more critical to make sure she does not cast a spell and escape so I'll sacrifice my multiple attacks.

Marnarius raises his left eyebrow and states, simply, "I'd like a hostage. I don't care who it is. So, would you rather be a dead Pathfinder or a hostage Pathfinder? No guarantees of course, but a little cooperation would go a long way towards who we decide lives."

Marnarius studies Loshari and will ready an action to attack the Sorcerer if she starts casting a spell, tries to duck behind the tapestry (or some other action that would look obviously like an escape attempt - Marny thinks there may be a secret door back there), or if she moves more than 30'.

I'm betting she does something stupid, but you never know, some Pathfinders are sane. She just doesn't seem the type.

Shi, think of yourself as a whirling flurry of distraction instead of destruction. By the way, when you are facing someone with a bow or casting spells I'd advise using that debilitating attack special ability you have that prevents a 5' step so you can get an AOO, particularly when there is a flank set up you don't want him to move out of. Not so much in that last attack, but think about it for later.

@Marnarius: It is helpful to state out the actions.

Note: If you delay, you cannot interrupt the casting.
Also note, I will use your first roll, only, from your spoiler, as this is the only one that is legal.

The draw bow is a swift action due to Quick Draw, which is why there is no study bonus (which also takes a swift action) and I get a full attack. I can never remember the difference between held action and delay action. Whichever it is, I want to interrupt the casting.

Marnarius laughs uproariously.

What was that, a hot bath? Didn't know you would be so friendly!

Aw, gee, I surrender!

Marnarius will stand there mockingly with his hands up near his head (but near his bow) and wait for him to start casting. When he does, provided the sorcerer lives that long, he will drop the scythe, quick draw the bow, and plug him with arrows (assuming no surprises).

Now, is that legal? Will I get to fire before he finishes the spell and interrupt it if I do this? If not, treat these shots as going off on his initiative and study/add 2 for study bonus. Also, the shot is good from there, right? The table is in the way but I don't see it giving him more than a little concealment.

When Marnarius goes:

First attack to hit 1d20+10, +1 haste, no study bonus: 1d20 + 10 + 1 ⇒ (17) + 10 + 1 = 28

I think you get another attack.
2 attacks normally, one at -5
+1 for brawlers flurry
+1 for haste

When the Paladin goes down, Marnarius casts his eyes towards the mage and says, "Still in the mood green boy? Can you even use that little toy axe you carry around? I'm tempted to let you go just so the Pathfinders will remain burdened with your ineffectual presence."

That was probably a really stupid move for my character, but he is a bully and there's nothing like a little success to embolden someone like him.

The paladin falls after the first two scythe blows, so he is able to stay his hand on the third swing.

Yea, NOT. That last blow falls on his slumping body. For all Marnarius knows, that mage may have a healing bent and that Paladin is NOT getting up again if he can help it. Besides, Marnarius likes kicking a downed opponent.

Unless the viscious damage is applied after every hit? Then he would back off. But from what I saw, you only applied it once. I suspect that was an oversight and you 'owe' Marnarius another d6 and he will indeed back off out of self preservation. I applied the 1 point to his status line and look forward to the extra damage. It was worth it.

That is so very awesome! Move to new position and wait for Shi so I can get flank. I'm not using viscious.

He will attempt a trip!

trip 1d20 + 14 + 1 haste +2 studied: 1d20 + 14 + 1 + 2 ⇒ (12) + 14 + 1 + 2 = 29

Anything to avoid an infinite barrage of smitey arrows. Not sure if there should be a -4 in there or if there are any bonuses I'm forgetting.

I hope I did that right! Should I have used my CMB instead when using a weapon and how does the +2 on the weapon affect things. If I add the weapon's +2 I think I get +14 anyway so I'm hoping it is all right. Please straighten out the math if I did it wrong.

Don't you get three attacks while doing a full attack hasted (4 if the attack is usable with brawlers fury)? You normally have two even without the haste and I assume you used a swift for the greater dirty trick. Or are you waiting for results before you make the last attack? Also remember your knockout attack once per day if things are desperate. I had considered using poison but it would take too long and his fort is probably pretty high as a pally - and I needed the study bonus.
