    Default Test of Spite Exhibition: Claudius Maximus vs. Nohwl

    Any preference for buff rounds or for any particular arena?

    I'd personally prefer to have at least all-day buffs up. I can do with or without buff rounds, but if there are any, I wouldn't want more than four. Most matches end up with three.

    No precipitation or wind, overcast day. I'd like a larger starting area though; how about anywhere in the first or last two columns?

    Normally, yes, but I'm requesting that we expand the starting area to anywhere in A or B, or Y and Z for me. I've found that the starting area here is a bit small, and kind of unfairly penalizes stealth builds. Are you okay with that, or do you want to keep it as only in the circles?

    Your blindsight does not pick me up, and you do not see or hear me.

    You are Subject to Greater Dispel magic, which I assume your Ring counters? If not, make a list. You get to make a spot check.

    If you do not fall after I cast GDM, I cast Spell Theft on you, and you need to show me a list of spell effects on you. You would get to make another spot check.

    If you do fall, I may do something different.

    For future reference, I don't get to know the Contingency's trigger condition, nor do I get to know any metamagics on your spells.

    I choose to try to steal everything but the contingency.

    Master Air - (1d20+15)[19] DC 28
    Divine Power - (1d20+15)[23] DC 28
    Visage of the Deity - (1d20+15)[23] DC 28
    Blindsight - (1d20+15)[19] DC 24
    Aerial Alacrity - (1d20+15)[29] DC 24 **Stolen**
    Freedom of Movement - (1d20+15)[18] DC 24

    Looks like you get to keep most of them this time.

    You get to make two spot checks. This will end my turn.

    It was two total, sorry. I didn't realize you had already posted one.

    The distance defeats your first, which would otherwise have succeeded, and makes the second impossible for you. Your turn.

    If it's 70:

    60 feet is the default range. how would i make it different?

    anyway, ill move to m,5,10 feet in the air, if i detect anything before then, i'll stop after getting 30 feet away from it.

    that ends my turn.

    As soon as you enter D5, you detect me in O4. I suppose this means you end up in J5?

    You feel your opponent cast a swift spell. Spellcraft DC 18 reveals it to be:

    i have a +23 to spellcraft, so that automatically passes.

    i'll use wings of cover as an immediate action to prevent being hit by the spell.

    well, at least i saw you this time. maybe i should pick up delay death.

    anyway because doing something didn't work last time, i guess i'll do nothing. does that mean i am hovering, or do i start falling?

    You can hover if your maneuverability is Good or Better. Otherwise you fall, but this does not trigger the Streamers. The spell lasts 1 round/level, which can be a while.

    I cast Divine Power, then Footsteps of the Divine, then fly up to N4, altitude +25, while drawing my Scythe.

    End Turn.

    if i can fall without triggering them, whats the range on streamers? if it's 5 feet, then can i fall to right above the water and then cast a targeted greater dispel magic at you, and then a quickened moon bolt?

    edit--i have good maneuverability

    I'm not sure it's a non-action to fall if you have a choice about it. It would be more like moving downwards. In any case, the Streamers follow you and could still attack you when you take those other actions.

    i don't have the book streamers are in, so ok, that sounds like a bad plan.

    wings of cover would only prevent one of their attacks, correct? might as well make sure i'm out of options.
