    Damn it!

    Since you mentioned it, I have had the theme song to Pan's Labyrinth stuck in my head. And since I tend to whistle, its driving me and everyone around me insane.

    The Tome of Battle, or ToB is generally regarded as the best fix for melee classes. It introduces three new classes that actually retain thier uses at high levels.

    Oh no, it's not that, I like talking about it. I just feel like I'm doing a diservice to the campaign and to the people taking the time to read about if i say "and then we killed some creepy fast monster in the tunnels, and then the wizard showed up again".
    It just takes a long time to get it all down, that's all. I feel like I can't get caught up.

    As much as I love your stories, I have to say this: Just enjoy the bleedin' campaign, and maybe ask us if you need help again. Worry about relaying story properly when you've seen it end (And gotten some rest, too). Or you can do whatever the hell you want. Whatever works for you, really.

    Hey Silverclaw? You remember at the original battle before you became undead and you were ethereal. You stabbed a Kython or Slavemaster something and its soul died. Maybe you can do the same thing to Tenebrous.

    @Anxe: Yeah, but I'm not sure she could've done it to the vestiges that went body-squatting. Furthermore, I'm not sure if it's such a great idea to confront an epic vestige on his home turf.

    Sorry if I sounded like I was just poo-pooing your idea. Hell, the thought never even occurred to me. And it could certainly make for a climactic finale, if the DM buys it... which, given his method of storytelling, is a very real possibility.

    It's an interesting idea, but not very likely. For one thing, if I could fight vestiges, I could have fought the vestige that was trying to take ME over.
    Then, even if I could fight him, there's the factor that it's just me and him, one on one, while my party stands around scratching their heads, unable to assist.
    Then, if we killed tenebrous somehow (even possible? He died before, it's what turned him into a vestige) Orcus would basically drop a train on us outright for proving we were that much of a threat.

    Then there's the little fact that when Tenebrous was alive, he wandered the planes MURDERING DIETIES FOR FUN.

    Yeah, I'd rather not try to headbutt the guy

    I agree with what you said except for the part about Orcus dropping a train on ya. He's know for not killing PCs when he should.

    But when it comes to this campaign, and this DM... Well, I'll have to say I'll go with SilverClawShift on this one. Don't piss off Demon Lor... I mean Princes in a genuine horror campaign.

    I wonder if your DM knows about some of the vestiges from dragon magazine? Two particular ones would fit well into the campaign. One of the two I'm thinking of was killed by tenebrous, the other kills undead. (Both from Issue #341)

    Those two vestiges are called Kaas (Vecna's former servant, undead-hater and killer) and Primus (killed by teebrous when tenebrous took over the modrons)

    It sounds like you're having a really great campaign! I really enjoyed reading about it.

    And you made me buy the theme tune to Pan's Labyrinth on Itunes! Oh wait... nobody made me do it. But you made me realise how much I liked it and wanted to listen to it again. So, thank you.

    So melancholy, and so beautiful...

    So, I was rereading one of the older posts in this thread. Given the backstory that's been revealed, aren't you glad you didn't train any of those Commoners as Binders after all? I mean, picture it:

    PCs: OK, Binders, time to start making pacts.
    Binders do their shtick, nothing happens.
    Uh, oh.....

    Also, on a more current page, I have to wonder where the heck this is going. I mean, even if the PCs do what Graz'zt wants, and even if they're wildly successful (all 23 binders are still alive, bound to Tenebrous, and brought safely to Graz'zt, who, we hope, can keep them alive, bound to Tenebrous, and safe from Orcus indefinitely), that still doesn't solve the problem of the gaping hole in the multiverse that's causing hordes of vestiges to come into the world is a rather anti-social undead.

    You need some glue. Some hard core glue.

    And it doesn't solve the problem of what to do when Grazzt siphons off the trapped power of Tenebrous into himself, becoming an undead god and conquering the Material Plane with an army of zombie-demons. Bwahahahahaha!
    Because that's the sort of thing I'd try if I was a demon lordprince.
    Bwahahahaha!
    If a tree falls in the forest and the PCs aren't around to hear it... what do I roll to see how loud it is?

    Seriously. That has to be preventing, like, 15 kilonazis worth of evil.

    Talk about pressure!

    I'm trying to get a post about it in tommorrow, and we have 4 more sessions. The 4th one will wind up being the climax, apparently. So that's cool. Mind you, it's not 1 post = 1 session, but I'll try to get up to speed as much as possible.
