    • Caster tries to cast a spell within Warrior's reach.
    • Warrior chooses not to take the readied action yet and first attempts the attack of opportunity that Caster provoked.
    • Caster teleports 10ft away using her Shadow Cloak item as an Immediate action, outside Warrior's reach.
    • The AoO misses. Caster is still casting her spell.
    • Warrior uses Abrupt Jaunt from his wizard level to shift right beside the caster again as an Immediate action.
    • She's still casting the same spell, so he doesn't get to try an attack of opportunity again even though he has Combat Reflexes because each action only provokes once.
    • He takes his readied action to attack her now, and hits.
    • Caster's spell fails.
    • Caster curses at her enemy in anger because talking is a free action that can be taken any time.
    • Fourteen of Caster's crafted contingent Apocalypse from the Sky spells activate, each in response to another's activation.
    • Caster's crafted contingent Plane Shift spell activates in response to the last Apocalypse from the Sky spell; since each part of this chain actually interrupts the one before, none of the AftS spells have actually gone off at this point even though the contingent spells themselves have all been triggered.
    • Caster dies from overwhelming Constitution damage anyway because she forgot that items bearing Corrupt spells inflict their gruesome price when activated instead of when they are created, as an exception to the general rule.
    • Everyone else within 170 miles dies, especially Warrior.
    • Atropus's readied action to take up orbit over a planet and extinguish all life over the following weeks triggers when Apocalypse of the Sky goes off and kills tens of thousands.
    • End of turn.

    And then you cast shrink item, giving you a small Large Heavy Light Mace.

    I think we're drifting into another sketch.
