    Although I may have done it myself at some point (and I apologize if that's where you got the idea), I'm fairly sure you can't have recast buffs active as all-days. I'm going to bring this up with the other DMs, so there's a chance you'll be fine, but I'll at least request that any such buff not have any gaps in duration. So unless you have CL 120 for Entropic Shield of Faith, you'll have to cast many more to have it, to give an example.

    I've asked the other DMs their opinions. I'm primarily wary of the power of these kinds of scheduled buffs, especially when they could come at low cost.

    As for requesting overlapping durations, I'm just saying that your Entropic Shield of Faith would only last one minute per level, and it seems quite extraordinary to be casting it every two hours, when it would only be active a fraction of the time. Unless you do in fact have CL 120, which I wouldn't put past you. What is more, lacking an overlapping duration rule could result in something like an "every 11 hours" buff, which would just let almost anyone capable of casting 10 minute/level spells bring them to a match.

    So um... it's your turn Olo. I'm in F2, a tall-ish middle-aged Grey Elf made entirely of air staring you straight in the eyes waiting for you to come and get him. He lets out an exhale.

    Please let me know your magical/psionic auras and their strengths as per Detect Magic. Also I'll need to know the schools of the magical auras for all spells under 16th level

    (that's spell level 16 not caster level 16)

    I don't know the psionic schools, but it's largely irrelevant because I know nothing about psionics as a player

    As you raise your sword, you swing at him and find that the first blow bounces off of a sphere which is apparently made of force. The elf made of air barely so much as twitches as you run at him, you are astounded at the confidence he has in his defenses.

    Contingencied (I'm attacked) resiliant sphere CL 7 centered on me. A 7ft radius sphere would hedge out people not in my square since the area would be only slightly larger than the area I stand in.

    I admit I'm not up on the whole "psionics" thing but what I read was that there's some kind of transparency... that powers count as spells and spells count as powers for most things. Does this apply to Moderate Abjuration or no?


    EDIT: Also, jeez... ego whip psions are nasty, especially in the ToS environment where dumped stats are at 8. Need to find a bloody immunity to mind-effecting or else I'm in serious trouble if you'd gotten a belt of battle.

    You should see his psionic auras. They ping as certain schools of magic, as detailed here. I don't quite get what you mean by "Moderate Abjuration," though you should have been able to reflect that power he used on you a while back. It counts as a 2nd level effect.

    Also I meant the moderate estorica for abjuration. I do see his auras, but I can't identify them without psicraft. So I know he has moderate/weak/whatever psionic auras, but not what schools they are.

    You would know that Resilient Sphere (which is what you're dealing with here) can only be defeated by a targeted dispel. You may change your action in light of this.


    Superglucose:

    I'm letting him change his action to a targeted dispel if he makes the check up there. He would know IC if he recognized the Sphere.

    If he doesn't break your Resilient Sphere, he can't hit you with his area dispel, so your shield would still be up.

    Also, what is the exact condition for your contingency? "Attack" is awfully general in D&D, and it could have triggered on the Ego Whip.

    I typically assume that means "rolls an attack roll" at the most generous and "uses a weapon with intent to cause harm" at the most stringent. The intent here is to stop melee and ranged attacks with weapons. Also, can he interrupt a full attack with a standard action? I didn't think the action queue worked that way.

    I'll give you that definition, since your intent here is abundantly clear, considering you have Spell Turning. I am supposed to be very strict with contingency triggers in the ToS though, so try to make them as clear as possible in the future.

    I have no idea if Olo's action is legal. The action queue is so poorly defined by RAW. I'm inclined to say he can do it though.

    It remains to be seen whether or not he can actually manifest! He *is* taking a hammering to his charisma. He may very well fail the will save!

    Also: That brings his actions in this round up to three standard actions, a move action, and a full round action.
