    Oh boy! Now the (former) HPoH's malicious intent is undeniable! Come on priests, blast away!

    And now we might see what the other bodyguards can do.

    Also whats up with the "seriously" look on the vampire to the far right, lol. Looks like someones offended they weren't picked to be HPoH

    That is a lot of charges in the staff!

    Soo many vampires...We need some high level clerics to clean things up a bit. Where might we find some?!?

    Are there any penalties for bringing someone other than the High Priest into the nave? Can the other clerics join in now?

    Very appropriate thread smiley, I must say.

    Looks like generic female dwarf stone creed priest #1 is over to the right.

    Also, "Frontarchy" is now a word in my book.

    Oh, man! Now we have to call him the fHPoH all the time!

    Or the PoH formerly known as the HPoH. Maybe we should develop some sort of symbol.

    Oh my. That's a lot of vampire clerics.
    I wonder how many levels new HPoH has. If Roy is still a bodyguard, he better start slashing her right away.
    Also, if HPoH is not HPoH anymore, how do we call him now?

    I'm not sure the other vampire clerics count under the protection thing. Wonder if the other clerics are gonna join in and have an undead BBQ yet?

    No need to be so formal. Durkula will suffice.

    Well, I was wondering where the other priest have been...know I know more of the Church of Hel.

    p.s: Dominated vampires count has priest for the church? we know that the former HPoH was dominated until Malak was killed.

    So that's why Durkula didn't bother getting the staff back, it is probably empty.

    while i doubt the vampires would be dumb enough to start attacking the other high preists, this does feel like an appropriate time for the other bodyguards to start stepping in.

    Way i'd see it they'd avoid conbat until some of the vampires start to attack, otherwise they'll all just taker up posistions next to their respective clerics. only the new HOPH is exempt from the being attacked thing after all.

    I'm not saying it is animate dead I mean it might be able to target more than one vampire to be like animate dead can target more than one corpse.

    1. Staff of many charges.
    2. Just how much time did Durkula have to track down all of the stone clerics and ushers without attracting Roy's attention for the delay of getting into the nave?
    3. The inane conversation with Veldrina's bodyguard and the exposition/pontificating by various deities took how long?

    Once again smells of "DM Kraft" (in reference to company who makes cheese of dubious origin)

    Oh well, the plot will move along next week.

    Even when the moot is temporarily suspended, even though slaughtering and desecrating the entire host of ushers is technically allowed, bringing additional church members into the nave with hostile intent ought to be a violation of the rules.

    Hmm... perhaps they're only there to remove their errant bodyguard. A purely internal church matter during a break might be legal. But if a single one lays a finger on a different high priest, a dozen turn undeads come crashing down on them. For starters.

    How did they raise all those vampires so fast? Did Durkon/HPoH ever learn Malack's insta-vamp spell that skips the three days in the ground? How would he be able to cast it that many times in a day?

    Edit: Oh, right, it was in the staff. That really is a lot of charges.
