    Default Test of Spite Exhibition: Milskidasith Versus Claudius

    We'll do this by the honour system. You run your character, I run mine. On your turn, you declare your actions and attacks. It's up to the player in question to acknowledge when they're hit/hurt/incapacitated and to mention relevant info from their character sheet. Put all information that the opposing PC shouldn't know in a spoiler, like this:

    Observers Only

    Information


    Arena is as follows:

    {table=head]|A|B|C|D|E|F|G|H|I|J|K|L
    1||||||||||||
    2|
    3|||C|C|||||C|C||
    4|||C|C|||||C|C||
    5||||||||||||

    9|||C|C|||||C|C||
    10|||C|C|||||C|C||
    11|
    12|||||||||||[/table]

    Squares are 5 feet each. C represents column positions, running floor to ceiling. Walls and columns are stone, with coral accents. There are exits at F1/G1 and F12/G12, not that it matters unless you want to retreat. Ceiling is 30 feet high. There's a 10' square tunnel at F6-G6-F7-G7 that goes up another 30 feet. Light is normal.

    Starting positions: You pick a starting square in row 1 or 2, I pick a starting square in row 11 or 12, chess style.

    How many buff rounds do you want? I'm assuming all day buffs are running; I need to figure out what I've got running, so that may take a few minutes.

    I suggest all-days and 3 rounds. What are the lighting conditions? Could they please not be "bright as daylight"?

    The generic "not bright enough for penalties, but not dark enough for penalties" level of light they've used before. Dim enough to HiPS is also nice.

    If you mean spellcraft, I automatically succeed. do I read the spoiler, or will you tell me what it is? (I have not read it yet).

    I seem to have completely forgotten to hide myself in any way, which probably wasn't the best idea. You see the following in C2:

    Spoilered for length:

    Spoiler
    Show
    A man with dark hair stands before you. His eyes glow blue, but the color seems muted. In fact, he looks drained of color, as if viewed through some sort of filter (think the effect used in 300). There is a band of beaten old leather on his forehead, which is mostly concealed by greasy black bangs. The most striking feature about his head, however, is the gaudy bright pink veil that covers his face, which seem very out of place on such a drab, gray... well, man. He has a drab, featureless gray cloak with a hood, and where it does not conceal his torso you can see a tiger's pelt. His arms are covered in fine, silvery chainmail (the cloak is sleeveless), and you see bracers of tiger's skin on his wrists. There are a large number of thin leather bands crudely tied around his right arm. He is also wearing ornate blue leather armbands with golden patches that look like eagles sewn in. A light crossbow hangs at his side, and you can see a pouch on his belt within easy reach of his hands. He wields a round wooden shield, its surface virtually unscathed. There is a smooth blue gem embedded in the center of the shield, with a small arrowhead embedded in it. He has one ring on each hand: the left ring is a thin golden band set with silver spheres. The right ring is a thicker, larger golden ring with a seal in the middle surrounded by small rubies. It could certainly be used as a signet. You probably can't make out what the seal looks like at this distance. His boots are dark gray and seem unusually large, and are padded on the bottom. He is also wearing a backpack.

    It's Spell Resistance. Since you probably aren't hiding right now and I've got true seeing running, what do I see? (Where is your character, items, etc.)

    Edit: Also, I'm not quite sure if you are allowed to hide during your buff rounds. If you would have asked, I would have said yes... but hey, I've already got the advantage, and I'm taking it. :P

    Posted description. Sorry it took so long to write up, but I had to look up a lot of items, and I don't type particularly fast.

    Edit: I knew I forgot something. He also has a black scarf-like shroud around his shoulders and lower face.

    Description:

    Spoiler
    Show
    You see a balding man in front of you, his hands shaking feebly. His hair is grey, and his face is wrinkled from stress. However, looking at his hands, you can tell he is not old, just very world weary and stressed. His eyes are a dull blue. You see an old, worn out string around one of his arms, with a single, glowing bead on it. Around his head, an orange stone is floating. He is wearing a holy symbol around his neck, decorated ornately. He is wearing a dull leather belt, with a wand, a pouch, and a stick glowing dull blue tucked into it. He is wearing a chain shirt beneath a tattered grey cold weather outfit. On his shaky hands are two rings; on the left, a golden ring with six small gems on it, and on the right, a bronze ring with a large, flawless diamond in it. On his feet are boots that seem blurry due to the speed you see him run in at.


    Another one, eh! Breaking the balance... everybody breaks the balance. Too strong one way, or the other. I have something to say about that!

    The man begins babbling. He suddenly stops, and then shouts out a word that taints the very air around it with evil, his mouth glowing red.

    Divine Metamagic Quickened Extraordinarly Spell Aimed Blasphemy. (not hitting me).

    If Nongood:

    Take (2d6)[2][4](6) Strength damage for (2d4)[1][4](5) rounds.
    Dazed for one round.
    Paralyzed for (1d10)[1](1) minutes.

    Not that it matters, since you didn't interact with it, but I forgot to mention that there are eight of me due to a mirror image effect. Also, a DC 23 spellcraft check reveals:

    The blue eyes glowing is the result of the spell Arcane Sight


    I have arcane sight up, as well as true seeing. What are your Auras and the auras of your equipment, and do you appear any different to true seeing?

    Blasphemy does not seem to affect the man.

    Also, Knowledge (Religion) roll to identify your holy symbol. It's untrained, so I can only recognize it if your god is really major.

    No, there aren't 8 of you; I've got true seeing, remember?

    Anyway, auras coming up shortly.

    And you have no clue what god the holy symbol is for.

    The Holy symbol glows with a moderate transmutation aura (and is a reliquary holy symbol; I don't have access to the item entry, so I'll just tell you the item. I'm very splatbook limited)

    Belt glows moderate transmutation

    Boots: moderate transmutation

    String with one bead on it: Moderate Transmutation

    One ring is moderate Evocation, one ring is moderate transmutation.

    The stone floating around his head is moderate transmutation

    The wand glows a faint enchantment.

    The stick is a nightstick (again, I don't have access to what school it is. Lucky you!)

    Auras for spells affecting me:

    2 Divination Auras, 1 faint one moderate
    5 Trans. Auras, 3 faint 2 moderate
    2 Abjuration auras, both faint
    1 Enchantment aura, faint
    1 Necro Aura, faint

    I think you can still see them. You just know that they're fake/know which one to go for. Unless I'm mistaken and True Seeing completely sees through illusions, which could be a drawback sometimes.

    Ah, well, ok. Since it's beneficial to know there are 8 of you and which one is real, we'll go with that.

    I'd like to wait for your list of auras before I go. I have +21 spellcraft, so I auto-succeed on anything up to 22. I'll roll for any DC 23+ auras if necessary.

    Edit: Didn't see them up there. Doh. Here's how auras work. I'd like to know the strength of your personal auras (based on spell level).

    All this editing is starting to confuse me. How about from now on, we post new information in new posts, or at least tell one another when we edit and where it is (for example, I just edited post 22 to tell you how to determine aura strength). Go ahead and put your Auras in #17 though.

    Woah. I was just going through my copy of the Magic Item Compendium, and it says that If I beat an aura's DC by 10, I get to know what item it is, its means of activation, and its charges remaining. I'll have to roll for these, so give me DCs. It would be 25 + spell level or 1/2 its caster level, iirc. I don't think this applies to spells, though.

    You made everything, I think. The wand is iffy; it's CL 1, so I'm not sure if the DC is 25 or 26.

    So the holy symbol is a +6 wisdom reliquary holy symbol, the two rings are counterspelling (greater dispel) and spellcraft +10, the belt is con +4, the Ioun Stone is... the CL +1 one, the bead is a Bead of Karma, the boots are boots of speed, and the rod is a nightstick. Also, since I completely forgot this, my shirt is a +1 chain shirt naturally.

    Doing this paid off for me, since knowing all that affects what I would have done. At least your research was not in vain! I suggest keeping all that information; it's very good to have when people try to dispel or detect you.

    Activate Bracers of Arcane Freedom, then cast Dispel Magic on the right ring.

    Dispel check: (1d20+10)[17](27)


    Roll spot and listen I'll tell you if you beat my check (there's a reason for the secrecy). Something else has also come up, which may need adjudication.
