    Hmm. Hard to convince the Druid then, I'd wager.

    Guess we should smash it or very cruelly write out Taliesn.

    Your druid is very pragmatic, sharing the info and her connection to the wizard wouldn't be a hard sell.

    Wait, we're not trying to smash it? Weird.

    PS - have we determined if we need to pass through the room to get out? Cuz that might make a difference on our choice.

    Yes. There is a double door on the far side of the room.

    I imagine once we milk him of exposition, Allustan might need an escort back to Diamond Lake. Maybe a certain shifting quarter-elf might guide him?

    I've been thinking that the only way Tal as a character won't join us is if he's been maimed in a way we can't just fix. Perhaps the door bite conferred a powerful magic curse, like a super-charged wither limb at a very high caster level. Now that we can cast Break Enchantment it'd need to be pretty powerful.

    As well, we as a group have recognized the growing darkness that heralds the Age of Worms. Our enemies are gathering strength, our numbers are thin and dwindling.

    We need to start spreading the world to the outside world that the armies of Kyuss are gathering, so they are not caught unawares.

    Inactive PCs are needed to act as a vanguard for the few strongholds we have in the world.

    Send Hal to warn any elf populations.

    Goattracker to alert barbarian hordes.

    Tal to let those of a "shun-civilization" bent that something very unnatural is on its way.

    Nothing that gains us anything IC, but a handy reason to see inactive PCs set off.

    I'd like the longsword if that's all right?
    Torn over the armour.
    Offers less physical protection than Mirriana's full plate, but greater protection for the soul.
    Also it fits her theme to garb herself in the gear of a wind duke, as she's already basically recognized as an heir to them due to her diadem. Might make sense to wear it in times like this but switch back to the full plate for more regular encounters.

    Feel bad about hoarding all the loot though!

    I don't need the armour (or the sword) and I think you're the only other one who will benefit from heavy armour? I say take it all

    You can always donate your old gear to the Owlbears of Diamond Lake Museum.

    Which they will be erecting soon.

    Hey DrK, would you let Mirriana take this armour to a master Smith and get it upgraded to Full Plate, say for twice the difference between banded armour and full plate?

    I really like the idea, but it just doesn't offer the same level of physical protection as she has now.

    Edit: Well it's only actually one point of AC right now. But an upgrade to my full plate was definitely on the cards and I've been feeling like I need to optimise AC further now we're coming up against opponents that just tear through it as though it weren't there.

    What is the total pluses right now? I wonder if Merrick has the caster level with Astaroth's Craft to add another "plus" to it.

    Mirriana's full plate is 8 base with +1.

    This new armour is base 6 with +2.
    It would also allow her to add more DEX to AC... If she had more DEX.
    Also adds to touch AC Vs Incorporeal attacks.

    She really needs to cast Greater Luminous Armor. She'll be our glow in the dark angel!

    She is doing well with the Wind Duke theme.
    Regarding changing it to Full Plate, its challenging and also in some way defeats the point to the random armour. Could meet half way and say if you got astral driftmetal it could become engineered into half plate bit turning it into Full Plate is just taking the enchantment.

    I expect I am going to face similar issues with AC, and without full BAB to boot. Although some of those shield block/ IGG stances will hopefully help a lot!

    I have a slight rebuild planned for Mirriana the next time we have an option. Her thing is protection. Not just of herself but of her teammates.

    Shield Specialization and Shield Ward are two feats that get me less overall (Heavy Shield +3 to touch) than Parrying Shield and a tower shield would (+4 to touch).

    Then if I take shield wall, that shield bonus goes to +6 when fighting next to Elkist. Add a +2 enhancement bonus (or +3 at next level up with Magic Vestment) and I get +8/+9.

    If I swap extra turning, (which even as an RKV I'm probably not going to use too much) for Shieldmate, anyone standing next to me gets +2 shield AC.

    So Mirriana gets up to +8/9 shield AC against touch.
    Anyone standing next to her gets +2AC and IGG for equiv of +6 to AC. Then Shield Block happens and adds another +16/17 to that for an effective +22/+23 to AC and she becomes the Pope of Nope.

    She won't hit very hard, but that's what spells and manouevres are for, and it's only at -2 to attack compared to what she does currently.

    Are we up to date with loot? Asking now as a lot of the other games are taking a loot break, so I thought I'd get all the books up to date.

    Did you see that ludicrous display on Sunday? The thing about Arsenal New England is, they always try and walk it in!

    There, I am also a fan of the American Soccer!

    Hi, Me again with feat questions!

    As we know, there are metmagic feats for supernatural abilities, and since a binder's abilities are supernatural, would Merrick qualify for them, or must he be naturally supernatural?

    Empower supernatural ability etc.. Are fine for you to take. Just list the source book. As binder is his class he is naturally supernatural.
