Ok, so it is 30. So the first attack from the barghest actually hits you for 30 damage, even after he is prone.
[spoiler]
A couple of water benders, a dike, a flaming arrow, and a few barrels of blasting jelly?

Sounds like the makings of a gay porn film.

"This is a massacre."
Ris-Janna: "No, it's murder!" *tantrum*

I now have this image stuck in my head of Cade and RJ having a big brother-little sister shouting contest, going back and forth between 'massacre' and 'murder'. :lol

You included the bonuses for him being flanked and prone in there, right?
I included the flanking bonus, but not prone as it's technicaly a mod to its AC, rather than her attack. If we include it as an attack bonus, her rolls are 21 and 32.

Ok, it doesn't matter. You and Cade both still land one blow each.

Going out for the night. The rest of you go ahead and take your actions and I'll resolve them when I get back. Talk to you later.

@Boz: Not sure the Barghest is going to last long enough to study.  :lmao

In fact, there's a distinct chance that Marlowe would know, and thus study some other target. We'll find out when Phaedrus gets back I guess.

Man, it would have kicked ass to land all those attacks, thus matching the level of damage in that video from before. I'm not likely to get this kind of damage in a long, long time. XD

Reading more closely, I agree that trying to target a pinpointed invisible creature wouldn't work. But I do think that having visible arrows sticking out of it would serve to pinpoint the Barghest and possibly make the concealment check easier in the same fashion that large size does using Spector's rules of thumb in his Rules of the Game article on invisibility.
Don't worry he'll be visible soon enough. ;) I don't think I'm going to be flexible on this, though. If you had the Zen Archery feat yourself, you could target him, from the way it is written. But just knowing what square he is in doesn't mean you can target him, and that's all making the Spot check does. Even if you "pinpoint" the creature, he still has 50% concealment and can't be targeted individually. He hasn't even done anything, anyway. Why do you want to kill him so bad? :P
We are in agreement. Pinpointing doesn't allow spell targeting. Hmm, would it be possible to get arrows with an alchemical or magical treatment that coats anyone hit with them in dust/paint?

So I'm not really sure how the cloaker's engulf works right now. Can the cloaker just let her out, or does she have to wait until it's taken its turn if she doesn't want to spend an attack getting out of the grapple?
Damn you, HeadofVecna! your minions are simultaneously life-saving as well as irritatingly confusing! :P
Heh, sorry. Wasn't even my idea, but I couldn't help but go with it.  :devil

Well, if all of Phaedrus's encounters are this hard-hitting, your minions may dwindle anyway.  ;)

Least Weapon Crystal of Revelation. It's like 400 gp in the MiC. It counts as part of the weapon as far as attuned items, also. That would be a great addition to your Yuan-ti, wouldn't it? :P

It only lasts for 1 round, though.

I don't expect anyone to get this since it has to do with Austrian politics, but if you can find out through superior google-fu, you get a cookie. :D

An a different note: Can X animate that barghest as a ghoul or vampire or whatever later? :P

I've been meaning to ask about that. The feat details the CR cap of controllable critters. But theoretically, higher CR creatures and PC's could be vamped right?

Was it mentioned how tall these buildings are? I assume no taller than 20 feet, and that's fairly generous assuming a tall roof on these cabins.

I'm seriously considering just picking up the worgs and throwing them at the Barghest.  :lmao

On the Mindsight issue: Telepathic Static, a Hellbreaker class ability attainable through a one-level dip, blocks telepathy within a 20' radius. That might work against Mindsight, although I suppose the radar in question would be aware that something's amiss.
It's hard to qualify for, though.

EDIT: Actually, reading over it again, it would just outright cancel the Telepathy of all creatures within 20', rather than excluding that space from Telepathy. Which means it's useless for what we need.

Are any of the worgs/goblins not currently dead? Ris-Janna is unsure if she should walk up to the fifteen-foot-tall goblin/wolf hybrid without a way of getting a flank or making him lose his Dex mod. :D
Come to think of it, is the ground here smooth enough that dropping marbles on the ground will have any effect on someone? If it's loose dirt, they'd just be trampled into the ground.

There are two goblin bards that are nauseated, and that's it, except for the barghest. Well... and the Enveloping Pit lying on the ground, filled with goblins. :D

And no... I don't think marbles would do much here. It's a forest floor covered in light vegetation, roots, dead leaves and other detritus, etc. It's a bit spongy.

Hmm, I haven't really thought of this before, but is there a way to emulate the divine connection for relics with UMD, besides the alignment needed for the basic functions? There technically aren't any rules for that sort of thing though it seems to fall within the general bounds of the skill. If not then it's no biggie, just a passing thought.

Yeah, we'd have to work out a DC, but that's reasonable.
