What should I wish for? (Spoilers)


Legacy of Fire


I'm currently running through Legacy of Fire and we are on the fifth book (The Impossible Eye)
We have just reached Shazathared and she has offered me a Wish...
The party is me: a Half-elf Dual-Cursed Oracle (Ancestors Mystery.. sort of a female half-elf version of Maud'Dib from Dune), a Human Sorcerer (Crossblooded Marid/Draconic), a Strix Gunslinger Monk and an Aasimar Archaeologist Bard...

I am debated how to use the Wish... My character is the leader of the party and the face, so she wants to wish for something that will benefit the whole party, but I also want to wish for something appropriate to the storyline.

So, any ideas? My mind is a complete blank...


Bad ideas include:
1) More Wishes!
2) One-night stand with Shazi!
3) Gold!

More helpful ideas:
1)Immunity to fire for the party for a day.
2)Mass Freedom of Movement
3)Refreshing all daily use abilities and spell-slots
4)Raising the first party member who falls dead.
5)A one-shot spell-turning against the first Wish used against the party.

Since Shazathared is unlikely to pervert any of the wishes due to her relationship with the party, I would phrase the Wish something like, "In our most desperate hour, I wish (x) would happen." That way, she doesn't have to be around for the power of the Wish to occur.


The first couple are basically already covered by the party (Communal Resist Energy for resist fire 30 etc)
but numbers 3, 4, and 5 are fantastic ideas, thanks for the inspiration!

Wishes that specifically countermand what the BBEG of the module is arranging always work, too. He can't do anything if wishes keep undoing those he 'grants' to his helpers...and she can undo them far faster then he can build them up.

Yeah, I ended up going with:
"I wish that the next time someone tries to use the power of wishes against any of us that it backfires on them"

Nice insurance :)

Funny thing about #3 on the bad ideas...

What with being stuck in Kakishon, and now stuck in the plane of fire... we have an entire Bag of Holding Type III packed to the brim with unspent treasure :P


I've always found it appropriately ironic that Wishing for wealth will typically merit less gold than the cost of the spell itself..


Wait until you can clear out the compound.

Pay the bribe to claim ownership of the whole thing.

Use the Wish to transport yourselves and the whole estate to Golarion, a short ways from Kelmerane or Katapesh.

Send Jahwul a message: "You took our home, so we responded in kind." If you're lucky, he'll get so pissed he'll forget about the wishes and come to you instead.


I recall we debated for some time on this wish. In the end, what we decided was to wish for dissention in Jahvul's ranks. I think it had a really big impact on one of the event arcs in the final chapter.
