    Well, I guess that's an 8th level spell burned. Still, worth it.

    ... And checking her saves, I think I failed to calculate them properly.

    Fort = 1.66(Wiz) + .33(Ruathar) + 3(Swiftblade) + 1.66(Abjurant Champion) = 6.66(If Partial Saves), 5(if not)
    Reflex = 1.66(Wiz) + 2.5(Ruathar) + 6.5(Swiftblade) + 1.66(Abjurant Champion) = 12.33(if partial saves), 10 (if not)
    Will =4.5(Wiz) + 2.5(Ruathar) + 6.5(Swiftblade) + 4.5(Abjurant Champion) = 18(if partial saves), 16(if not)

    I think we're using partial saves? And counting the +2.5 for the 1st level in a class with a good save multiple times?

    (My guess as to the cause: I forgot to add Abj Champ or Wizard into calculating the mixed saves. Got the poor fort save right by dint of knowing she had 20 levels of bad saves)

    Ash will save: (1d20+33)[52]

    If she rolls a one, she will immediately cast Fate of One to reroll the save: (1d20+33)[49]

    If I roll 1's twice here, I think it's a sign that she's meant to end up in the mirror.

    Eilyra is welcome to the rod. I just thought Ash would make sure it was taken care of right away, in case there was an immediate ambush.

    I don't really mind where it ends up(Honestly, I suspect we'll end up selling it. It is a very useful item, but also very expensive.)

    But we've currently got both Eilyra and Ash independently picking it up IC.

    Sadly, Eilyra is, I think, the slowest member of the group, rocking an amazing 40 foot speed, although it is also her fly speed.

    I also hope that there isn't another mirror on the other side, because Eilyra hasn't recast moment of prescience, and being mirrored would be a sad ending.

    If it helps, with Moment of Prescience, Ash should be able to fake the command word to get any of us out of a mirror, should that come up. Does help if SHE's sucked in too, but so it goes.

    Luckily, Ash's wisdom is slightly higher than that of the average lemming, resulting in a fairly solid will save.

    Although, after checking Eilyra's saves, and recalculating Ash's saves, I am somewhat confused, and am suspecting that I might not be calculating saves properly.

    So, I went ahead and checked Ash's saves, and counted how many levels of good v bad, and how many different multiclasses were good. Which... puts her sheet fort save slightly high, and her reflex slightly low, and her will really low.
    (Fort, Ref, Will)
    G 1(1) 5(1) 20(5)
    B 19 15 0
    8.88 9.5 20

    (For reference, Eilyra's calculation)
    G 0 10(2) 20(4)
    B 20 10 0
    6.66 12.33 18

    I was thinking we were doing partial saves, and just adding up?
    Edit: I can't math. Fixed my inability to do basic addition.

    I no longer remember whether I assumed partial or standard save/BAB progression, but will accept corrections as desired.

    Are you factoring in any benefit from level 21? With partial saves, I'd assume that we'd get .5 to all saves.

    If I understand partial progression correctly:
    * The first level of a class that gives you a +2 bump at first level actually counts for 2.5
    * Subsequent class levels at good progression give you .5
    * All levels of bad progression give you 1/3

    So Ash's fort would be 2.5 (from the Mindbender level) + (19 x 1/3, or 6.33) + .5 from epic = 9.33
    Ash's reflex would be 2.5 (first level of Occult Seer) + (4 x .5, or 2) + (15 x .33, or 5) + .5 = 10 - a significant error on my part - thanks!
    Ash's will would be 2.5 and 19x.5 and .5 epic = 12.5

    Unless I'm wrong, which is entirely likely.

    In that case, Eilyra would be:
    Fort: 20 x .33 + .5 epic = 7.16
    Ref: 2.5 + (9 x .5, or 4.5) + (10 x .33, or 3.33) + .5 = 10.87
    Will: 2.5 + (19x.5) +.5 = 12.5

    I was not factoring in any benefits from epic, since the language there is +1 every other level.(Also, Eilyra is level 20, not 21, so she doesn't get any epic bonus as she isn't epic at all. The downside of LA buyoff.)

    The question is, of course... do we get the +2 bonus for multiclassing into another class with the save as a good save? Because that makes a significant difference.

    In the recruitment thread there was no mention of partial save bonuses, IIRC. So no partial bonus stacking, but you do get the +2 for a good save.

    Time to recalculate saves, then.
    Class Level Fort Reflex Will
    W 5 1 1 4
    R 1 0 2 2
    S 9 3 6 6
    A 5 1 1 4

    Totals: Fort 5 Ref 10 Will 16

    -1 fort, -2 reflex, -2 will from partial saves.

    When your fortitude is lower than a 20th level wizard...
    You know you might need to be somewhat careful about that.

    Ash, in comparison
    O 1 4 4
    M 2 0 2
    U 0 0 3
    M 2 2 6
    U 1 1 4

    Fort 6 Ref 7 Will 19
    -3 fort, -3 reflex, and -1 will. Ouch.

    Taric and Avakuss did it right the first time.

    The Black Cyst is an Outsider, but since you have the same bonus for Knowledge(Planes), I'll use that roll. This one came with a handy sidebar for knowledge rolls:

    KNOWLEDGE (THE PLANES) DC Result
    28 This creature is a black cyst, a vile horror born from Tharizdun's tortured flesh. This result reveals all outsider traits.
    33 Black cysts are particularly resilient creatures, and only weapons of the purest silver and those imbued with the essence of law have even the faintest hopes of injuring it.
    38 A black cyst is the embodiment of madness and most of its attacks affect its foes' minds. Between its warping aura that distorts the senses to its various maddening spell-like abilities, to fight these things, an adventurer would do well to shield his mind.

    For the glowing circle, you can't be sure, but it could be the experimental Gate you read about.

    That's... fun.

    Outsider, so great saves and BAB. High DR(Silver and lawful), maybe regeneration(Broken by the same), and mind affecting attacks(Which it is probably immune to.).

    And it goes first. :(

    On the bright side, disintegrate doesn't care about regeneration, if we can beat it down.

    You are forgetting some fun parts.. Stay in the limited light or freeze and be blind. No flanking. Stay in a tight group. Incense (or its holder) gets snuffed and we're all snuffed.

    Don't forget to tell the party about the enemy. Eh, guess we'll find out about damage resistance soon enough.
