    3-5, your preference of how many rounds in that range.

    I personally like this map:



    I'll start in the right-hand starting position (the red).

    How about four rounds? Also, do you want to allow summons? And do you want to allow them in the buff rounds?

    All RAW- and ToS-legal tactics are in. You can summon minions whenever you want.

    Of course, I don't think it's legit for summons to begin attack actions during buffs. So for example, you can summon and deploy a small army of vrocks, but they can't start dancing until the fight starts.

    Four buff rounds is fine by me.

    EDIT: 14 streamers fly up past the kobold to the demon. I forgot that they act when the enemy takes actions. My turn's over, absent any readied actions or anything like that.

    It's a Hezrou.

    How about two useful pieces of information on the Hezrou, since you beat the check by 5?

    1: It's stinking aura causes nausea and is poisonous.
    2: Damage reduction 10/good

    However, the Hezrou has a readied action. When you get within 40 feet of it, it casts Blasphemy. Unless you are evil and/or have 14 or more HD, you are dazed and may be subject to other effects.

    You're able to figure out that the kobold had cast one copy of the Streamers spell during his last turn but you can't see those streamers; the visible ones must have been cast during the buffing period.

    CL check to beat SR: (1d20+16)[20] (streamers 1-3)
    CL check to beat SR: (1d20+16)[22] (streamers 4-6)

    The Hezrou evaporates, recalled to the infinite abyss.

    Across the river, you see a swirling mass of gray jello that occasionally looks humanoid.

    Some words are muttered, and a shimmering sphere appears around the figure.

    End turn unless something crazy happens.

    A (much smaller) set of streamers attacks you as you cast the spell.

    Touch attacks, ignoring DEX bonus because they're invisible and you're therefore flatfooted.
    50 damage per hit, unless you have DR up. If so, reduce damage appropriately.
    (1d20+16)[36]
    (1d20+16)[18]
    (1d20+16)[23]

    Also, Spellcraft (1d20+15)[26] to ID the spell or spells cast.

    Can the streamers interrupt my spell? If not, they'll crash directly into a resillient sphere. If yes, then the two higher rolls are hits, but please roll for concealment. 50/50 shot of missing.

    EDIT: I'm a bit confused about the Streamers. They're supposed to use your BAB but you rolled them at +16.

    Any action that you take provokes the streamer attack, which is resolved prior to the action much like an attack of opportunity.

    Concealment 1 (1 hits) (1d2)[2]
    Concealment 2 (1 hits) (1d2)[2]

    How large is the resilient sphere?

    EDIT: I'm sorry, you're right. When within 30 feet of the kobold, they're also affected by Recitation; however, the streamers attacking you are not within 30 feet of him. Subtract 3 from the attack rolls.

    Quick question: it looks, according to the Resilient Sphere text, like a disintegrate would auto-disrupt the sphere. Would an attack roll be necessary? If so, what would you say the AC should be?

    Heh, okay.

    Since you're going to auto-ID all of my spells anyway:

    Invisible Disintegrate (1d20)[7]

    The kobold's claws and teeth lengthen, and he takes on a ferally feline look (Bite of the Weretiger) as he approaches (E11). You can see a holy symbol around his neck, glowing with a dark red light. "Only now do you perceive the true power of the Ruby Sorceress," he shouts, his voice gravelly but full of draconic might. At a wave of his clawed hand, your resilient sphere is disrupted, and the streamers that felled the hezrou now rush to surround you.

    Wait, the streamers stick around? That's madness! Changes a few things... I counterspell the disintegrate via a ring of spell battle.

    Yes, but in that case I don't do the Bite of the Weretiger. Instead, I cast a second Disintegrate. (1d20)[1]

    EDIT: Good grief. Well, the delaying tactic worked for you.

    EDIT2: And yes, the streamers last for 1 round/level. One of the best damage spells in the game.

    The kobold is spending roughly half of his time on the ethereal plane, what with the blinking. None of the streamers exist on the ethereal plane.

    Dispel Magic on the Resilient Sphere. A targeted dispel appears to auto-disrupt the sphere.

    If you counter the Dispel, I cast another.

    If you don't counter it, I cast Spell Theft on you.

    Opposed CL check: (1d20+19)[32]

    If I win the CL check, please list your currently-active buffs, along with the DC of the CL check to dispel/steal them. I'll post a set of rolls and we'll resolve them right down the line.

    Also, the streamers surround your Material Plane location, even though you're currently ethereal.
