    Is it just me or is Pulse of Hate really sucky for a 7th level slot? Will Half. Spell resistance yes. 2d6 AoE damage for a lot of rounds.

    Now watch Mirriana do five times that damage plus a status effect. Ok it's only one round, but really. It's only 5th level.

    It strikes me as a flavor spell that a PC would never bother with. Itís great for an AoE trap in an undead plant dungeon, for the record.

    Yeah, with Will as the lowest save for most PCs (ahem!) and very few PCs having spell resistance, itís a decent bleed effect.

    But 7th may be a little steep.

    PS - Thank goodness itís only 20í radius. Now I need to get leash the Gatling halfling

    Yeah, also with a 20ft radius it's not actually very threatening to us right now, particularly as he's hanging back!

    Anakin and Padmť was more convincing. I think that says it all.

    Though I miss Stegyr and my Lara/Tien ship.

    Lara and Tienne was definitely casual from her PoV, she was just blowing off steam after a day of near-death experiences. Pretty sure we all miss Stegyre though.

    Yeah that was a painful round. The loss of diplascemnt for the Nerarch resulted in him taking 75! damage from the skirmishing halfling before the random magical AoE attacks landed. But well done! That means the Seal of Law is within reach and the door to the true tomb can be opened!

    I don't know when the link between Mirriana's CON and FORT broke on her sheet, but her FORT has been 2 lower than it should have been! Corrected now.

    Ok, as we're levelling up I'm taking the opportunity to rebuild Mirriana slightly.

    Flaw and Human bonus feats - Drop Shield Specialisation and Shield Ward. Take Parrying Shield and Shield Wall instead. The net effect is I lose 1 shield AC and shield bonuses to manoeuvres, but gain 2 shield AC when fighting next to Elkist and her shield. I still get shield bonus to Touch AC and when she trades to a tower shield she'll get an additional +2.

    For a 12th level feat I think I'm going to take Air Devotion. It's not the most optimised, but it's becoming thematic.

    With a +3 tower shield from magic vestment that gives her +9 to shield AC and touch AC when next to Elkist. That's +13 AC from shield block and -4 from IGG, giving an effective -17 to an enemy attempting to hit her friends when she had that manoeuvre ready.

    So Banded Mail +8, Shield +9, Natural Armour +1 is 28 AC. Shield of warding brings that up to 31 and Shield of Faith to 35.

    Hitpoints: (1d8)[7] min of 4.

    Except for taking a +1 Dex, Iím not totally sold on exactly what to do. I suppose a rebuild could be in the cards, but Iíve at least accepted the thematic concept of a spear tossing halfling

    Become a spear-throwing-halfling-throwing halfling.

    Edit: Aw man, itís a level 7 spell.

    I'm beginning to get why THOU SHALT NOT GIVE UP SPELL LEVELS is a thing.

    Mirriana's not just two class levels behind a straight cleric and at L5 spells instead of L6, but 5 spells and 26 spell levels short. Plus we're generally coming up against casters two levels higher than us, so we're going to start getting hit by L7 with only L5 to retaliate with!

    If you are doing a re-build (which I'm not opposed to) then you could look at some ToB and the bloodstorm blade for pretty brutal throwing and being a warlike halfling. Or there is the master thrower PrC?

    Its only the boss baddies that have spells higher than you. But there are 6 of you as well! I know what you mean though. THings start ramping up from here as well as the next chapter when you finish this one is one of the toughest in the campaign!

    I'm feeling Zarina's lost CL's as well. For now there are a few of options to go with here. As she is a DM-PC there is an element where she has to help the party as well
    1/ Jade Phoenix mage and embrace the gish and some more CL loss in exchange for some better ToB moves
    2/ Sacred Exorcist then Pyromancer to add Paladin spells and holy fire (but again costs a CL)
    3/ A traditional wizard PrC and start focusing on magis as she is pretty fighty and can still buff with magic to do stuff

    Spoiler: Option 1 = JPM
    Show

    Level 12: JPM 1: 10 BAB, 0 CL, IL 7, 4th level move
    Level 13: JPM 2: 11 BAB, CL 10, IL 8, mystic phoenix stance
    Level 14: JPM 3: 12 BAB, CL 11, IL 9, 5th level move
    Level 15: JPM 4: 13 BAB, CL 12, IL 10, Empower Strike
    Level 16: JPM 5: 14 BAB, CL 13, IL 11, 6th level move, 6th level stance
    Level 17: JPM 6: 15 BAB, CL 13, IL 12, Firebird stance
    Level 18: JPM 7: 16 BAB, CL 14, IL 13, 7th level move
    Level 19: JPM 8: 17 BAB, CL 15, IL 14, Quickening strike
    Level 20: JPM 9: 18 BAB, CL 16, IL 15, 8th level move


    BAB +18, decent HPs, nifty free empower and quicken and some level 4-8 moves that can be added to with equipment and feats. So its a nice fighty gish and still reach heady heights of 8th level spells. So its not too bad.

    Spoiler: Option 2
    Show

    Level 12: SE 1: 9 BAB, 10 CL, Turn undead!
    Level 13: SPyro 1: 9 BAB, CL 10, Paladin spells = wizard spells for a gish goodness
    Level 14 onwards..... Silver Pyro 2-5 for +4 CL, then Exorcist or Abjur CHamp 5 to round out to 20. Finish with CL17 and BAB 15



    The Sacred exorcist --> Silver flame gives fewer HPs and a lower BAB of +15 but would give CL 17 (and 9th level spells at level 20). But it has access to the nifty host of paladin buff spells to fill up the lower levels with smiting boosts.

    Of the two, both are tempting but I think I may go with what I like and stick wth flaming sword and go into JPM to embrace the gish, she has plenty of spells and it only has a net difference of 1 CL and means there won't be any cross-over with Elkist or Mirriana's divine mandates
