    Yes, you see a mass of shadows in C25. Your true seeing sees through the tentacles to reveal a tall, older woman with long black hair. She has a buckler on her left arm, and a staff in her left hand. She also has a large scythe on her back. She does not appear to be wearing armor, but her clothes are rather heavy and baggy, so concealed light armor is a possibility.

    With your true seeing, you can tell that she is under the effect of a transformative effect that gives her scales and webbed hands and feet. Above is her true form, however.

    Spellcraft can reveal the nature of both visible effects:

    DC 25:
    Spoiler
    Show
    The concealing shadows are from the spell Armor of Darkness

    DC 23:
    Spoiler
    Show
    The transformative effect is the effect of the spell Scales of the Sealord

    If not, please clarify what you mean.

    (That is precisely what I mean. Also, I auto-pass the spellcraft checks.)

    You see a large mass of darkness appear in K25-L26, 20ft above the ground. A writhing mass of dark tentacles obscures a vaguely equine form. (1d4+6)[7] (max 8) mirror images surround it. (Ha, sorry, forgot to roll.)

    Attack -> Damage -> carrier effects. Each attack is a ray, and so each roll is against touch AC. Additionally, you are flat-footed, unless you have a way of preventing that.

    Looks like I made both of those. What's with the tentacles? If it's a spell effect:

    Spellcraft - (1d20+20)[31]

    She dodges 52 of the bolts with frightening ease, but your four best shots still hit her.

    Anyway, is this more than one casting? I can't think of a means to fire more than 16 from one casting. This is relevant because I have spell resistance, which I believe you check once per casting (if you're twinning, check separately)

    Only the natural 20's hit, so check SR for the casting(s) they came from. I'll save against any that get through.

    Also, she's in range of your Mindsight, so you can tell that you're facing a Humanoid with an intelligence score of 18.

    If it's one casting, why are you rolling two checks? The first one succeeds, but the second fails. How many saves do I have to roll?

    It's a single twinned, split, split casting. Each save represents a block of 28 rolls. All of the 20's within the 28 rolls succeed, the twenties within the last 28 rolls fail. So, three bolts hit.

    Can you split a spell twice? Even if so, it would result in a total of 18 rays, not 56. Not every ray is split. Even if every ray were split, you'd have 21 rays per spell, for a total of 42, not 56, as there is a cap of 7 rays. What is more, if you ignored that cap and fired nine base rays, you'd still only have 54 rays.

    Assuming you found a way around all that, here's my four three saves:

    Save 1 - (1d20+34)[36]

    Save 2 - (1d20+33)[43]

    Save 3 - (1d20+32)[52]

    Save 4 - (1d20+31)[37]

    Edit: I didn't catch that edit about only 3 hitting.

    You may not apply Split Ray twice, no. I don't understand what you mean by 'not every ray is split.'

    Regardless, my sheet has been checked and the person who checked it was fully aware of my attack, and it wasn't contested. Perhaps we can settle your concerns after the match?

    My main concern is that Split ray allows one additional ray over the number normally fired by a spell. A CL 19 Darkbolt fires 7 rays, so a split Darkbolt fires 8, not 14. If there's something else going on behind the scenes responsible for the number of bolts, I'll let it wait 'till after the match, though.

    Looks like I made all three of my saves. Is it my turn, or are you going to take further actions?

    Of course, you're right. Apologies, there are 32 rays. Feel free to disregard the erroneous extra 24 rays. I misread split ray as "any ray" as opposed to "any ray spell." I have further actions.

    You don't have to reroll the Darkbolts or anything, since the natural 20's were all in the first 16. Go ahead with those actions.

    I ride away to I1-J2.


    It's your turn.

    Cast quickened Freedom of Movement, move to I25 or perhaps further

    I move out of the cloud, moving first to K25. Do I gain LoS at any point?

    My move may not be over yet.

    I move to K21, do I see you?

    As a matter of fact, I might have been wrong. You probably actually see a portion of the creature in J2 and to a significantly lesser extend J1.

    That's such a tiny amount of LoS... But it's enough.

    Do I see you, or just the steed? I was never clear on that as relates to mounts.

    The mount, I would think. It's the large creature. More importantly, did you ever mention whether or not you had true seeing?

    I said earlier that I don't, but I fully intend to get it if I don't see anything from K21.

    I end my turn in J21. You detect me there with Mindsight, I believe.

    Move to J21, obviously, then cast Divine Power.
