    I suspected that would be the case to be honest

    Saw a D&D meme recently that I thought was interesting:

    Your character is now the BBEG. Why?

    I think it's interesting to think about what could make a character snap or turn to evil.

    For Mirriana I think she's been leaving behind her initial ruthless streak thanks to the other party members and Celeste, but it could come back rather quickly if something happened to them. She's most likely on a roaring rampage of revenge against those responsible and the new party have to try and stop her.

    Merrick? All he has to do is listen to his ďvisitorsĒ instead of treating them like bugging phone apps.

    Take your time. I'm not exactly in a rush. We just vibe the Age occasionally.

    Interesting. Not sure Lan would ever be the BBEG. Perhaps a high place in an Assassin's Guild, but he'd be more likely to work for the BBEG as a Lt than be the actual Big Boss himself. That being said, the call to the dark side would likely be paved with several questionable tasks that are "for the greater good." Eventually you realize you are a damn long way from the 'good' ... but at this point, how can you justify the choices you made if you don't follow through?

    Hard to say, with Tal. Like Lan, Tal is more Dragon than BBEG -- the one the BBEG sends after the good guys to give them nightmares. (Body morphing is great nightmare fuel, just ask that Freddie Krueger guy.)

    Long-long-term, it's a matter of Zryxog the mindflayer slowly taking over. That's to be expected, as illitihids are born telepaths (and much smarter than Tal), so eventually, the greater and more cunning intellect wins out. Mindflayers, however, don't play second fiddle to anyone, so I see Tal working as The Dragon for decades as Zryxog subtly lays his own plans to become the true BBEG. It would be a multilayered story.

    For Zarina to turn Evil she would have to lose her faith, so would have to be seduced away from heronious by a magic/fire evil deity. Then if sheís given magical power she could drop to the evil side a bit more

    Feeling better now after more than a week of migraines from my winter booster jab so will try and progress things once more

    The chamber is 100ft long (W to East) by 50ft tall and 50ft wide (N to S). Your stairs come out the ceiling and arrive at the western corner and the statue is 80ft away at the eastern edge. Lan recahed the floor and is ~60ft from it and nothing has happened. Everyone esle is on the stairs attached to the wall at the western edge.

    Anyone doing anything in particular or just heading down and exploring?

    Oh right. It might have been Julienne or Claire who snagged the Faceless' One's head for a bounty. I think I remember someone doing it anyway.

    Hm, I think Tal's mindsight will tell us what type it is, as well as (generally) how smart it is. Both may be useful bits of information.

    When I can get the free swift move (Travel Devotion) it helps. Of course, thatís a one a day thing right now and I canít justify the shenanigans to take a class of cleric to fuel it more 😜

    Its gone slightly Nova using both of its 1/day "god abilities" on Round 1
    - One of them being a boost to many things for a very short duration. But its needed against the savagery of this party!

    Ok, if Merrick's got the dispel I'll keep my immediate action counterspell to myself. Shield Block for Elkist it is!

    +13 AC Vs the first attack against Elkist. Note also that I have Iron Guard's Glare, so subtract 4 from the attack rolls against Elkist as well. And a reminder of +5 sacred to AC from protection devotion and +4 deflection to AC thanks to Mass Shield of Faith.

    The bite does hit Mirriana though, so that's 33-5 = 28 damage now, /2 by Shield Other is 14 to Mirriana and 14 to Elkist now, and 2 to Mirriana and 2 to Elkist at the end of the turn.
