    The only issue I have before posting the results table is that Raordan, Tessa and Atalanta appear to be completely ignoring the very hostile dwarf in front of the rest. Im fine with you trying to do that, but just making sure that you are aware of the fact that one of them does not appear to taking kindly to the giant being obliterated in one shot. As for the other group, you have finished off the combatants and that will be reflected in the tactical update as soon as I hear from Group2.

    Tessa is primarily talking to the hostile one, figuring that the rest will follow his lead. If the Diplomacy doesn't work, her second plan is to use her Charm ability on him, which WILL break her invisibility. But she doesn't know whether or not to do that until he responds.

    Atalanta was planning to use charm, if you want to remain invisible, jut let her know telephatically.

    If we are being watched remotely, Raodan has Ghost Mind (caster level check DC 38 vs scrying) if that matters.

    Also, it's Raodan, only one r.

    EDIT: also also, Raodan has Eyes to the sky feat: You automatically spot the magical sensor created by a spell of the scrying subtype (arcane eye, clairaudience/clairvoyance, greater scrying, or scrying) if it's within 40 feet of you.

    Go ahead - if we both use it, maybe there's a better chance that he'd fail a save.

    edit...I actually think Suggestion is the better play here. If he fails the save, he'll be FORCED to agree for 19 hours, which will get him out of the area. Tessa is doing that now.

    Our checks to figure out the source/spell of the voices (Know-Arcane) came up blank it seems. Affecting us in multiple rooms and not targeting the dwarves is extra interesting.

    Figures, this Diplomacy check is awful compared to the last one. Oh well. I'll probably try to Suggest any other hostile dwarves to get them off of our backs.

    As for what exactly "something else that will help" might be; I'm betting against end this effect, but the Concentration DC is low enough that any little (non-enhancement) bonus can help turn it trivial.

    Can the casters attempt a knowledge check for how the voices are getting to us?
    Bardic lore? etc?

    Also, do the ones who failed their saves get to retry?

    Can any caster cast something like pro from evil to try and help them?

    Sucks to be knocked out of combat permanently.

    EDIT: some context to the voices would be nice? it seems some people might be getting frustrated.

    It was actually just a bad roll that fizzled the spell. I had a better-than-even chance of making it. Definitely not what I'd call being "knocked out of combat permanently". Like I said, any additional bonus would "help turn it trivial", not "allow me to start contributing again".

    That said, I'd still like some way of knowing what exactly we're dealing with.

    I dont know how I can help you without giving away the whole story. This is a case of trying this, trying that, trying whatever. There is no "context" to the voices, they are in your head, and there is no visible source. Mulcri has a Mind Blank up and they are still there, so its likely not magic, or magic of an ultra high level kind. Anyone can cast any spell they want, but theres no guarantee that you have the right one, until the mind clears on it. I cab assure you, you do have the power to deal with this.

    Just to make things a little clearer, I'm absolutely not complaining. Mulcri is somewhat frustrated by it, but I am not. Saying it would be nice to know was not intended to mean you should just straight-up tell us.

    ...Since it was mentioned, does she see anything new on herself with Greater Arcane Sight? (And minor note that most likely doesn't matter here, but may in the future: Mind Blank doesn't only protect against magic.)

    We're also working at extremely high levels, in a world in which divinities have been known to take an active role in the affairs of individuals. Ghosts, telepaths and godlings...all sorts of things that the voices could be.

    Figure it's been 10 minutes since before the first fight. (1d4)[1] huge earth elementals show up, 208hp each. A greater elemental shows up in another 10 minutes.

    Anyone else already thinking tactics vs the BBG? Ohhh Yeah...

    The dwarf told me where to place the earthquake. I assume it was on the second level? Will I have time to cast it and then Teleport out before we are crushed?

    Mikela, I know that the shapechanging is a lot to track. I appreciate your patience. Currently, Hillock and Otrera are incorporeal, in the form of dread wraiths. So for the purple worm to hit Hillock, it would need to be magical and beat the 50% miss chance for incorporeal. All good so far?

    Further, shapechange usually conveys the creature type, along with all its pluses and minuses. Normally, undead are immune to poison. Do I still need to roll the save vs the purple worm poison?

    I thought you were materializing for your attack. Ignore the worm tail as it just passes through your body. I dont think Hillock partook of the feast, given that you probably didnt create an elephant's share of food.
