Hello Kyra....a couple of question so we can learn from your wisdom in case we find ourselves in similiar siturations.

1) What was the worst situration Merisiel find herself in that you had to get her out of? Was there anything you would have done differently to aviod the trouble?

2) If you have another cleric(or oracle or anybody else with access to healing magic) and they refuse to let you do all the healing for the party instead of sharing the duties, would you consider not using your healing abilities on that person(barring of course that person is dieing of course) to a way to deal with that aituration?

3) Have you ever had to work with a evil person to defeat a greater evil? If so how did you deal with it? If not...how do you think you would eal with it?

Thank you for your time. Hope the battle vs evil and the redemption of people who have been lost in darkness is going well.

I have returned from my duties, and some much needed rest and restoration. Since many of you have waited, patiently and respectfully, I will answer you.

1) There are too many to recount a worst...according to Merisiel, they were ALL merely minor scrapes that she would have gotten out of. (snort) Doubtful. I believe that one of the worst situations I can remember was when we were first starting out...in Kassen's tomb. I believe you can read my journal notes somewhere . In short, Merisiel ran into the tomb, attacked some zombie, got herself flanked, and was clawed down.

2) I am not sure I understand your question...are you saying they wouldn't let me do any healing at all? I do not believe this is what you are asking, so I will answer you as if you asked if this other healing refused to share in the healing duties. This person would NOT be joining us in the future. Such selfishness has no place in a group that commonly faces danger and death. I would demand that this person put aside their pettiness, and come to the aid of the party and its needs. Or leave. However, in the meantime, I would merely cast compassionate ally on them.

3) I have had this experience. By working towards a common goal, and one which results in a good outcome, this evil person makes a step towards redemption. I will always hope for the chance to help one who has fallen upon the wrong path to take that step.

I threw this one at the Enlarged Kender, so I'll ask you this as well, what would you do with a chest full of 10,000 platinum pieces, given to you as a reward?

Assuming your companions could manage to not get themselves into trouble for one day, what would be your 'ultimate day off' be like?

I would, of course, use it to promote the greater cause of Sarenrae.

Now, if this could be accomplished by purchasing advanced gear and weapons to assist me in the fight against unredeemable evil in the world, so be it.

I am, after all, practical, am I not?

A day off....a quiet day of prayers and reflection. I know of this secluded, beautiful oasis in my homeland...I would go there, I think.

Hey, asking someone if they are tsundere is not in poor taste! Look it up, it's just asking whether or not you are as serious on the inside as you seem to be on the outside. Now asking if someone is yandere, that's a different story.

Very well. I have asked Ameiko what this term means. She laughed and said, 'Yes. Quite.' And then she explained it to me.

I must say you are probably correct. It is not a side you will see often, though. Perhaps when my life is less....intense. My companions have seen this lighter side on occasion...Lem is always sure to make me laugh. He is quite amusing, and clever with words.

If you ever found the surviving bandits that burned down your home, what would you do with them?

Have you ever thought about stopping your adventures to take up a more protective role of a singular community, or do you feel that travelling as you do is more productive to the Dawnflower's vision?

And what would be your preferred enchanted weapon?

The Everlight requires more of me than to exact revenge. I would look into their souls, to see if they were repented for that evil done to me. If they were still evil in their ways, I would see them sold into slavery, or tried and executed, as is my right by law.

I had that opportunity to decide between a life as a spiritual leader of a community, or this life. Sarenrae revealed to me her sign, the ankh, on the side of a ship. I took that ship, and it is what the Dawnflower wanted. When She has decided that I must do something different, then I will know.

Hello fellow cleric, I have a few questions for you.

Have you had a chance to use any of the new spells that just came out? If so whats your favorite one?

Do you find it frustrating when you've just healed your party members and then they go run off to find more trouble?

Have you ever thought about charging for your services? In times like those mentioned above it almost seems like a good idea...

Oh, create demiplane. I mean...how incredible is that?!?!

However, I am quite fond of the idea of casting forbid action on Merisiel, if it meant keeping her out of trouble!

YES.

NO. Healing is a gift of the The Healing Flame. I know that as much as it is frustrating to heal and have it taken for granted, my companions are there to save MY life as well.

Do you think its fair that elves get to live as long as they do?...well as long as they don't keep doing stupid stuff like Merisiel, its kind of amazing she hasn't died yet.

Have you noticed that people whose moral outlook is "Good" are generally happier then others? (…Even as they are made to sacrifice or suffer for their moral beliefs?)

I point this out because I see that even Merisiel would be happier if she could align herself with Sarenrae (or even Sarenrae's long time ally Densa).

Spoiler:
It would also help Merisiel find a better way of expressing herself then unwanted advances and sexual innuendos.


Thanks for answearing my questions before...and sorry about the poor editing of one but you in your wisdom guessed at the intent of the question correctly.

Have you ever traveled to either Rahadoum or Alkenstar? And what did you think of both places?

Silver Crusade

So I was reading through the paladin codes in Faiths of Purity, and ran across this line in the book:

“The best battle is a battle I win. If I die, I can no longer fight. I will fight fairly when the fight is fair, and I will strike quickly and without mercy when it is not.”

Naturally there are differences in the restrictions on clerics and paladins. But I was curious as to what you considered to be a fair fight, or if fair fights are just fiction to you.

I see that there is a new small statuette of my likeness that is creating quite a bit of excitement.

I approve of this likeness of me....they even got the patterns in my robes correct. Impressive!

However, having some of you pawing my likeness does disturb me slightly....

(narrows eyes at certain undead posters....and Merisiel)

Dark Archive

hey i could only make one voo... one doll of your likeness, though i can't find it any more...


who do you like to adventure with the most?


What feats/abilities/spells would you suggest for a 15th level follower of Sarenrae(cleric/holy vindicator mix)?


May I make a suggestion? Don't let Merisiel anywhere near your drinks in the near future!


Yes I second that notion...she's plotiing to use an Elixir of love on you, which totally ruins the point of being with someone.


Threw this one at the Muppet, so I'll give it to you as well.

Assuming you encountered a newborn Dragon (of any type) what would you do with it?

What would be your ideal form of transportation?

I do not, and did not, have siblings. I was my parents' only child, before the bandits came and destroyed our life together.

I would enjoy the opportunity to travel into Casmaron, to see the Padishah Empire and the Ourzid-Mah, especially. I would welcome any of my Iconic companions.

I do not envy the elves and their lifespan. Although they have the opportunity to do more good deeds in their years, it is not the number that matters...it is what one does in the time they are given.

** spoiler omitted **

I often wonder if Merisiel would find better hope and purpose following a different deity. While the Dawnflower does not seem to fit with her, I would say that Desna does. Calistria seems a bit too bitter, although I trust that her call to the tricksters is what appeals to Merisiel.

Only Merisiel knows what will bring her the joy in life she seeks.

And I know what her response will be, I'm afraid; but, she will be wrong. The happiness she seeks cannot be found in anyone's arms...

I have not traveled to either place.

I have NO desire to visit Port Godless or the Kingdom of Man.

Alkenstar sounds quite interesting, but I feel no calling towards it.

How very crude of you. Do you speak to all women this way, or just the ones you disrespect?

Pray to Calistria that Merisiel does not see this comment of yours....


What items would you deem absolutely necessary if you were setting out for a journey at 15th level? You have 240,000 gold to spend. Like you I'm a cleric of the dawn flower and I'm not sure what I need to bring with me.

(sigh) Paladins....so eager to see the world in black and white.

For me the best battle is one where good overcomes evil, and none of my allies die. A fair fight is such a rarity, as it suggests an evenly matched battle, where the most gifted and talented side wins, and honor is valued.

Evil NEVER plays fairly.

As a courtesy, however, I do believe in giving the evil side one last chance to change their ways. They rarely accept the offer...

So if you had one thing to say about Sarenrae to people, what would it be?


So...is the reason you don't do what Merisiel wants to do with you is because of a vow you took in service to Sarenrae or is it more personal reason? And if it is a vow do all Sarenrae clerics take one? Or a similiar one?

The Dawnflower loves and cares for all that are honest and good, or truly wish to be. She lifts up the fallen, heals the sick, and brings light to the world. To follow Sarenrae, you must believe in honesty, kindness, and redemption.

To answer your polite, but obviously veiled, question....No, we are not required to forswear intimate relations with others. The Dawnflower is not such a prudish goddess!

The honest reason I decline Merisiel's advances is that I am not attracted that way to women. That is all. I do think Valeros is a fine specimen of man, but past his physical form, he is quite crude and wholly unappealing.


'Evil' plays fairly when it feels like it... Which is not that much dissimilar to what many 'non-evil' types feel like doing, only without the pompous moral self-justification.

As a traveling cleric, do you ever go out and preach to the masses, run or assist with services to Sarenrae in the local church/shrine/cathedral/etc, or anything of the like?

You know there are magic items that solve both of those problems...though I'd guess that you haven't "been" with anyone yet and want it to be a little more special than something that has to be faked with magic which is totally respectable.

Do you at least find Merisiel's advances a little touching? I mean it's kind of a complement if you think about it. Despite how she sometimes represents herself I'm sure she has standards.

Well it sorta had to be vieled to be polite. Though I also meant it be mor encompassing. I am pretty sure Merisiel just does not want to bed you...but go out and have a girls night out type thing. So is there restriction based on faith about going outy drinking, or gambling, etc also?

Or is that more based on your personal preference?

Have you met anyone at all in your travels that made you think about stopping and settling down?

And what do you plan to do once retirement becomes an option?

I've always gone by the rule that it's always a good idea to not put anything on your head that might be smarter than it. That never ends well.


Would it be possible for you to regenerate this kidney Merisiel stabbed? I sort of need it.

What is your favourite beverage?

If you found a faulty Helm of Opposite Alignment, the effect of which only lasted for one week, which of the Iconics would you use it on? (assuming you were interested in friendly 'punking' and they weren't likely to go on a stabbing spree once the effect wore off?)

In other words, "Would she be willing to take moral responsibility for any 'acts of violence or treachery' that this normally good person committed during this 'punking'?" (Do I understand you correctly?)

Or, "Would she be willing to take moral responsibility for pushing a 'not good' person further away from redemption?" Consider, what kind of moral example would this act of 'temporary' enslavement give that person? (Do I still understand you correctly?)
