    Oops, actually Ali is behind the ooze in initiative.

    I think that will probably work, though.

    I have PM'd Xav...last online 3 days ago.

    Hello. I'm a bit ill, so feel free to move Damian as you feel necessary.

    I hope you feel better soon!

    To the rest of the group: Whoever posts what Damian does first is the one who picks.

    I just noticed, that casting haste will revert the stone back to its original size - would that interrupt our fight?

    Anyone right under the ooze is going to have trouble getting back out (squeeze/crawl), and it'll be even harder to hit. It's in a recessed ceiling cavity created by the falling stones.

    Thoradin disadvantage rolls for throwing a hammer underwater. (1d20+13)[26] (1d20+13)[25]

    Armariel had previously entered the space the shrunken block was in (CB58). The ooze is 10' overhead (it has reach). Damian then specifically tries to freeze the area over the block. If Damian does that, then Armariel has to hop over to one of the un-shrunken blocks to attack upwards, as there's a 5' cube of ice above him.
    If Armariel stays in the 10x10 space underneath the ooze when he un-shrinks the block, he's going to have to squeeze through the gap to move away. Otherwise, he's sidestepping to get out from under the ice, and then swimming up 5' to attack the ooze, leaving himself in melee with it.

    Is that your intent?

    The ooze remaining in the ceiling recess also means that Ali will not have line of sight to it for targeting the spells posted.

    Yes, side stepping and swimming up to poke at the ooze repeatedly

    Ridiculously bad ooze saves!

    Int save (1d20-5)[5] rolled a 10! vs DC 20, -1d4 to next save
    Melee spell attack hits by a lot
    Cha save (1d20-5)[11] - (1d4)[1] -2 net 8 off a dice roll of 16DC 20 Cha save

    I should make my con save with Thoradin next to me, if not I'm using my Moment of Genius to boost my save and keep my spell slot.

    Also, a 24 doesn't hit unless it's a crit

    Arcana check:

    Are these blades a dispellable spell effect? They feel like the Blades of Disaster

    Armariel does recognize these as Black Blades of Disaster.

    Dispel is one way to get rid of them. You'd have to dispel them one at a time.

    I'm actually a little confused at the layout and how we're all oriented. I'm going to reread the posts and see if I can figure it out.

    I would like to roll an arcana check to see if any of Abi's spells - most notably Banishment or Eldritch Blast - would have any effect on the blades.

    Banishment and Eldritch Blast would not do anything to the blades themselves.

    I'm actually a little confused at the layout and how we're all oriented. I'm going to reread the posts and see if I can figure it out.
    Armariel is in the partly flooded U-shaped room with one Blade.
    The doors to the room are open.
    There's a 5' space between the doors and the rockfall trap.
    The fallen blocks have nobody on them currently, with a 30" gap to squeeze through going onto them and then off again into that 5' section of hallway.
    The rest of the party is behind the blocks

    Does that help?

    Thank you all. Thoradin gave his hand at dispelling the black blade and uh... well, it didn't quite work I don't think...

    It was a valiant effort. (Not that this will stop Armariel from ribbing Thoradin about it )

    All we can do now, is to destroy the artifact producing the effect...

    Did Armariel dispel the blade that attacked him, or the other one?

    The idea was to destroy the one that was heading for the rest of the group.

    I'm always terribly anxious to spend other people's spell slots

    I'll take care of it

    Done - I hope it is as simple as destroying the scabbard of the statues, otherwise this could become really painful really quickly.

    Is Damian trying to do this from behind the blocks where he still can't really see much?

    No, I'd expect him to move forward until he can see the armors/statues.

    Can my Eldritch Blast target the armours? Strictly it only targets 'creatures' and I'm not sure if the armours count or not, or if them counting as objects but being targetable is a deal breaker.
