When this is done I want to know what just hit us. :P
I'll post this guy's stats in the NPC graveyard after the fight, as usual.  :smirk
[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.

I seriously doubt anyone will figure it out. I'm going to be using homebrewed stuff frequently to keep you guys off-guard, but I'll try to use things that have either been playtested, or have been designed to work with Tome material and seem balanced.

I will tell you that if anyone else ever runs a tome game on here... I'll probably play one of these. ;)

Oh yeah, a spellcraft check (DC26, I guess) can ID this effect, also. And a knowledge (nature) check might tell you something about this guy. The higher the check, the more info you'll get.

Are we waiting on X's goons, or on me?
I'm not sure my standard tactic of "Punch the enemy in the face" is going to work so well against a being made of air and wind. :P

Well, in the brief glimpse you saw of him when he unleashed the lightning, he looked like a humanoid inside a whirlwind, not a whirlwind himself. The little whirlwind that appeared and spoke in the village dissipated not long after delivering its message. It was just a magical effect. But he is about 400 feet off the ground, though. So unless you have some way to fly... and I think you're a bit too big for the cloakers to carry while flying, unless they're enlarged.

Say... how long does that Mass Enlarge last, anyway? 1 min/lvl... That should still be going, unless it was dismissed. In fact, so should Raoul's Fly spell that he cast last time. So he doesn't have to recast it.

Can you dismiss a Mass X spell from some recipients and not all? Or do you have to dismiss the whole thing? I was never sure if any of the cloakers were affected by that or not, as I don't think Kuro ever named all the specific targets. If they were, and yours was dismissed, they could carry you.

And yeah, I think we're waiting on you and X (and his goons).

And me, though I don't think I can really do anything unless Marlowe gives RJ his crossbow after he's done with his turn. :D
Some way of getting Battle Jump on the fly would be really useful right now. :smirk HoV, you should look into getting a Heartfire Fanner vampire/ghoul/whatever. :D

Hmm, that Mass Enlarge was double effect, right? So I'm two size categories larger right now?

And are we doing this in just the normal thread, or starting a separate combat thread like the other one?

Hmm, at 400 feet he's a little over double the height I can reach with a jump. Too bad. :P

Oh yeah... we should start a new thread. I totally forgot about that... I'll do it later. Gotta run for now. Go ahead and post in the main thread if you need to.

Kuro can cast Fly. You guys could hit him up for a/some flight spell(s). ;) Those cloakers can also carry people smaller than themselves.

I recast Fly since it works at Rounds/level, so I figured it was already gone. The Mass Enlarge should probably still be going.

I recall that RJ asked to be specifically not included in the effect (which Raoul figured he wouldn't do anyways since he noticed she's stealth-based) and at double the number of targets, I think that gets pretty much everyone.

Hmm, so unless I get a flight effect, or the creature gets pulled down to within about 150 feet, I'll have to delay my actions.

It's 1 min/lvl. It is hard to keep up with, since they've lowered the duration with every damned edition of D&D... So both it and the Mass Enlarge are still going. You can cast it on someone else, if you want to keep the same action. :P

Ok. I think Marlowe didn't want to be enlarged either, though. So I guess everyone but those two is enlarged, including X's minions.

That whirlwind around the Stormcaller/druidy guy makes me suspect that bows and crossbows aren't going to work.  -_-'

Sorry I never responded about this. It was due to ambivalence; worried that Enlarge would just make them bigger targets, but still kind of wanting to have them maintain the necessary size scale to be helpful. Is Cade huge or gargantuan? If he's gargantuan the Cloakers wouldn't be able to carry him anyway. Its going to take a while to get people up there that way, between grabbing people, mirror image to have a chance of making it, and a couple of rounds of 45 degree ascent.

I'm thinking a tactical retreat to the Enveloping Pit might be a better option. From there Xuuvosic could teleport everyone to safety. Then, after buffing, we could come back mid-air. But There do seem to be downsides to trying this. Kobolds could be in the way, and there's the issue of getting Cade to fit inside. Opinions?

I can change shape as a standard action, so there shouldn't ever be an issue with me fitting. :)

How about making RJ and a cloaker invisible and hitting the former with fly? They could fly up to him largely unnoticed, since Janna is hidden right now, and then flank him for SA face-rapeage. (Else, Ris-Janna could also DimDoor up to him - but either way she'll need something to stay up.)

Hmm, I still think that flying up would be deadly slow (even Hasted, Fly would require at least 4 rounds of double moves at half speed because its straight up right?). Dim Door might work, but there could still be some challenges, such as the caster's Invisibility, to deal with. Also, I don't see anything on RJ's sheet that would transport her farther than the 50 ft for Shadow Jump. Did I just miss it?

Does anyone have an objection to (temporarily) getting out of dodge?

Yeah, she has DimDoor 2/day as a SLA from her template.

If we just flee, it'll probably keep lobbing super-lightning at us from on-high. I'm not sure that's going to work, since it's set on killing us.
