    I'm sorry, I had revivify last in-game day, but I switched it out for break enchantment for this mission. I thought that would be more useful.

    We'll lay your body in state and see to your resurrection.

    Just out of curiosity, what did this guy do to pump out 307 damage without charging?

    Edit - had I used law devotion for my own AC instead of protection devotion for the burst, I'd have 2 more, so it was in theory possible. But I've honestly only used law devotion for the bonus to hit

    We have all almost died once, except for gunn who has died. And going in i knew if theo died he was dead dead its why i used shield of faith. Pran in theory should be able to use the bones of saint Rosalind to bring her back to life. Or this could be the self sacrifice thing our wounderful dm told us about that would make rosalind a deathless martyr saint thing.

    Well I hope my death scene was touching to everyone, sadly wanting to stick with the fact it caught her off guard I didn't post her asking theo to find the prison, get Anthama, and return it to the Mother to help Charis because that would be metagamy

    Maybe Gunn's telepathic access to her mind will allow him to also see those goals of hers? Very touching.

    It was a mighty fine post, Dantie. Very poetic.

    It looks like I need Perseus to come slice and dice this death knight. I may have only connected with one attack

    depends on how far he could see, I mean it wouldn't be at the front of her mind as this is legit the second time she has had to choose between herself and a friend and the gilt of letting gunn die the first time will be much closer to her frontal thoughts then her mission. But perhaps he catches her prayer, or partially and see's into what she was giving up by dying?

    Yep, I'm waiting on the results of the Spellcraft check to post. Team Gunn/Perseus/Manny's actions depend on how long we have before the altar explodes. But, time permitting, Gunn will likely Targeting Ray the Death Knight, which should give you an additional +6 to hit.

    Altar being destroyed is good for us, finding the prison before it explodes and killing all the death knights is better lol. And I'm curious how the construct is holding up against that hoard of undead lol. I mean 120ft lines of electricity has to be cutting down all the low level things, making it a smaller army for those who were originally going to have to fight it.

    If it went Gunn -> Perseus -> Theo, and then Theo used White Raven Tactics to move Perseus behind himself in initiative to grant him a new turn, then the targeting ray would hit the death knights before Theo's turn in initiative.

    And that second attack from Perseus is a potential crit: (1d20+35)[39], (2d10+88)[99]. Not sure if the extra 2 damage from Undead Bane is added, but if it is, add +4 to that damage roll (if it matters).

    Those rolls are definitely not bad... above-average at worst. Isn't the elite array 15, 14, 13, 12, 10, 8? Compared to 14, 14, 13, 12, 10, 9?

    As far as I know (and my Google-Fu has allowed me to learn), they don't by RAW, but swapping out Light Armor Proficiency for Improved Unarmed Strike is a generally accepted move. I've found this evidence to support that.

    Of course, since we fully intend to resurrect Rosalind, this is all a theoretical discussion. Even if we can't use the Bones, we can use conventional means. Her trust surely can afford the necessary diamond component, or make a 12275gp donation to the Helping Hand with Gunn then paying for the scroll of Resurrection.

    On the other hand, if you'd rather just play a new character (who would not be burdened by the same vows that have lead to inter-party conflict in the past), I'm sure we could all get behind that. Maybe the new Empress of Pacem has sent a more martial emissary to New Ganthar in hopes of securing their vassalage?

    I would much rather Rosalind be returned to life, however that could take a while...and sitting doing nothing is no fun, so why not build one of the people from the strike team sent to retrieve the bones of Saint Rosalind? A reformed person who was once a criminal in Pacem until they helped him. Because of that he uses his darkness to protect the light and while martial in aspect is more a monk with cool kung-fu moves and a few unique abilities.

    You won't be sitting doing nothing Dantie. I'm still on reduced time to post (hence the very short IC post yesterday) but the plan is to let Rosalind spend some time on the other side of the veil.

    "abyssal"=above average

    So, next steps.

    1) Necrotic Energy explodes/ dissipates
    2) Loot what is left of the Temple (optional)
    3) Use Find the Path to find Melchizor's Prison
    4) Defeat whatever's around Melchizor's Prison using standard combat methods (low finite resources eg spells, high renewable resources eg Perseus and scrolls)
    5) Interrogate Melchizor
    6) Find the Anathema
    7) Defeat the Anathema's defenses (again, using renewable resources)
    8) Retrieve the Anathema
    9) Return to New Ganthar
    10) Resurrect Rosalind
    11) Individual things (For Gunn, this includes meeting with Torc)
    12) Meet with the Crown
    13) Mountain of Bones

    Items 10-13 can be done in any order.

    Thoughts?

    We were told Dalvar's energy is unguard (basically) on another plane and can be claimed by anyone who has the power/relics to do so. The Mountain of bones to our knowledge is where the Daughter rests and we heard through Gunn's scrying that no matter if the ritual worked or not the Daughter would be back basically this day (thus why Ember, Pran, and a few others they could recruit were going to the temple of Bones). And going off of the assumption Pran and Ember are roughly the same level they are around level 10 (cleric and Paladin respectfully) along with a few fighters and possible extraction from the guardian of Maya who is close to our power level if they get in over their heads. We were going to the mountain of bones to stop the daughter from being woken up brought back, used against her will as she has the same power as Charis over the way between worlds.

    1) Necrotic Energy explodes/ dissipates
    2) Loot what is left of the Temple (optional)
    3) Use Find the Path to find Melchizor's Prison
    4) Defeat whatever's around Melchizor's Prison using standard combat methods (low finite resources eg spells, high renewable resources eg Perseus and scrolls)
    5) Interrogate Melchizor
    6) Find the Anathema
    7) Defeat the Anathema's defenses (again, using renewable resources)
    8) Retrieve the Anathema

    9) Return to New Ganthar
    10) Resurrect Rosalind
    11) Individual things (For Gunn, this includes meeting with Torc)
    12) Meet with the Crown

    13) Mountain of Bones

    Is what I would suggest though I understand why Gunn would want to get said information before Rosalind is alive.

    Why would we bother looking for Melchizor/ defeating whatever is guarding him if we aren't going to use him to find the Anathema? Also remember that is why Gunn came along this mission.

    I have no intention of going to the Mountain of Bones without getting Gunn's rewards from the Crown.

    And without meeting with Torc and finding out what that groups plans are to protect the world from Demonic Invasion, I don't know if Gunn is on the same side as Rosalind, anyway.

    Why would the group bother looking for Melchizor and defeating whatever MAY be guarding him (given we just fought the temple and its about to blow up)? He is the only person that both Gunn and Rosalind through opposite means for totally different reasons know where to find Anathema. However getting to whatever power is holding that and not dying requires someone that can keep you alive *cough cough* Rosalind. And if he is still in his prison Gunn cannot get him out without from what she has informed everyone her opening said prison or someone at least with the same views as her. (See mind control doesn't solve every problem)

    Gunn's reward from the crown is justly earned however given the time and nature we were presented with he has to choose either go to the Mountain of bone and help stop ritual or Let new ganther be threatened by a demigod of unknown power so he can collect a reward he could get after saving the world and adding it to his tab.

    As for Torc, he again can be meet at any time however without the information Malkivar has he would be on a lower playing field then Torc. I suspect Gunn doesn't like people withholding stuff from him and he would be the type of person that would have the ace up his sleeve to even the odds and make Torc meet him on equal grounds, thus the information or at least prison. All of that is pointless however if an undead demigod destroys New Ganther/has her powers stolen and given to [insert evil deity] and the whole world is destroyed/etc.

    So yeah priorities....

    As for Gunn and Rosalind agreeing on anything regarding Anathema I doubt they would, hell I doubt Gunn and Theo would for that matter once Theo knew he wanted to destroy the gods and thus any way of protecting themselves from the material plane becoming another battlefield of outsiders. That however is neither here nor there. Neither one of us has it, and the one person who last saw it is not within our grasp/out of prison. So making plans that have so many variables is kinda a mute point.
