    Well what did you expect? We had gaps when you left. I almost picked up a great club with Goat out. Stick around and the landsharking can be your gig!

    I don't think Mirriana really moved into a Tal niche. She rebalanced a little towards spells, which covered a bit of losing Goat, and got a *lot* more effective at protection.

    To be honest I'm wondering if we're going to get a little bit more funding when we meet Manzorian. There were some powerful loot drops in that adventure, but not much cash for customisation.

    Lan with a large-size great club is quite the mental image. 😅

    BTW, in case it wasnít obvious, Tal was not excluding Elkist by design but because he was transitioning out just as she was joining, so I figure they havenít met except at most in brief passing.

    All good. Sorry for tardy posting. I hope to update this weekend, another level of Spirit Shaman.

    That sounds great for Elkist, thanks

    The smaller amount. We only gathered 11k total in cash.

    Precisely why I kept it. A certain vestigial pal of mine allows me the ability.

    I can't remember, did I get a metalsmith to cast it in metal, or just wonder about it?

    I think for this adventure I'd like to add the "called" property to my armor and shield for +2k each, 4k total. If I sell my healing belt, handy haversack and cloak of resistance +1 I get to 4210 total. I'll miss the haversack, but needs must. I'll have 210gp left.

    I also want to reallocate +1 of the bonus from my armour from enhancement to the +1 Death Ward property.

    I'll ask Manzorian for a Belt of Giant strength or Shirt of Health.

    Finally, I'll replenish all your conferred healing spells and use Mnemonic Enhancer in x4 domain slots to prepare extra 1st 2nd and 3rd level spells the night before we depart.

    I reckon all this needs about 2 days.

    Merrick still has a vestige that allows him to use any item creation feat as his level (14) allows.

    Any craft needs might be run past him.

    Also going to speak with dead Illfane. And find out

    A) where her horde at
    B) (presuming she was that dragon seen with Lashonna) who does Lashonna hate most (always the best motivator I find, unless she is Lawful Good)
    C) what parts of the prophesy are still unfulfilled? (Worth a shot, she may have been too low ranking or just not care)

    Assume Manzorian will stump up ~20K each in magic item cash equivalents

    But please tell me what you are grabbing!

    If Merrick could craft Mirriana's armour modifications that would save her about 2k, so I'd appreciate that. It'd take 4 days for both though.

    I think I'll ask Manzorian for a Belt of Giant Strength +4 and a Vest of Health+2.

    I think Merrick need a vest of resistance +4 to upgrade.

    I can donate my existing +2 for party funds. I am also more than happy to flex my craft vestige.

    There are a few ways, not sure any of them are great:
    https://forums.giantitp.com/showthre...tat-to-Y-bonus.

    Technically the Deadly Aim feat from pathfinder converts some of a high Dex bonus from to hit to damage. It's more limited than 3.5 power attack though, you can't choose the amount and it caps out pretty low.

    Pondering my item wish list:

    (1) Amulet of Incarnum Shielding (MoI 112, cost 2,100). I'll have to choose between wearing this or the chronocharms, but having some enterprising wizard strip Tal of his soulmelds would be catastrophic (for Tal, at least).

    (2) Essentia jewels (MoI 113, cost 400) Ė a quick +1 essentia when wanted. May pick up a handful of these, just in case.

    (3) Shadow Hands (ToB 149, 3,000 (up to 3rd lvl maneuver). Hands are one of the few remaining unfilled slots. He'd use this most likely to learn the Cloak of Deception maneuver (SH 2).

    (4) Boost my Concentration +3 item up to +5 (1,600) or +10 (9,100).

    Not sure what Zarina is after, certainly merging her Int+2 headband with the Circlet (+2000)

    She'll probably be after some flight and maybe a martial item for a little more flexibility in manuevres known.

    A contribution to party funds is always welcome. Never know when we might need a load of diamonds!

    +2 would sell for about 2k.

    The incarnum shielding is a nice effect.

    By the way, if anyone gets a ring of counterspelling I can cast Greater Dispel Magic into it, giving you single use protection from that.

    My Anklet of Translocation is a foot slot. That's a good reminder actually, I should get another one when funds and other priorities allow.

    Hey! Someoneís whole attack routine is in the foot slot.

    Was just checking MoI rules last night, and a totem bind fills whatever appropriate body position it fits.

    I think the Amulet of Incarnum Shielding accomplishes the same, automatically, 7 times before crumbling, so for a rare risk like this, itís probably the most efficient protection.

    Still, a ring of counterspelling and GDM would be useful for a host of other reasons possibly even more dire!
