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.
Xuuvosic can teleport at will. He is suggesting that everyone else jumps into the Enveloping Pit, and he grabs it and teleports away.

Ah. Well, if that's what everyone wants to do then I will have to abide. I'm a team-player... most of the time. :D

I recommend you disguise yourself as goblins first. :p

The tier system in a nutshell:

Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.

lol, I am looking forward to them piling into a big pit filled with 50 stinking goblins. :D

Unless Xuuvosic's minions were already supposed to have eaten them all.  :bigeye

How closely packed are the goblins? How many area spells do you have?

Yeah, that will smell a LOT better.  :lmao

The pit is 10' in diameter by 50' deep, so they're probably packed pretty densely. The PCs haven't looked into it yet, though.

Ah screw that. I can't imagine you guys wouldn't at least have peeked into your new toy. The goblins basically have an inverted tower built into it. There are 10 levels, each about 4 1/2 feet from floor to ceiling (sized for small creatures), with ladders leading between them.

Could Xuuvosic Teleport into the Enveloping Pit, drop a Fireball, and climb out? Is it apparent whether the floors inside are part of the magic item or added later? Also, I assume that the minions are happy to leave. But does that mean he can just tell them to get in, or would he need to take a standard action each to get them to enter?

Sorry to hold things up, but I'm hoping to avoid getting repeatedly zapped while we get all the pieces together to get up there, stay up there, see the enemy, and deliver enough damage. Although RJ having Dim Door, probably means that a tactical retreat isn't the only option.

Extradimensional space. Can't teleport into it.

Well, if you guys think I can kill him in one full attack (Five attacks at 3d6 Sneak Attack each, +8 each if he's flat-footed) We could try having RJ simply DimDoor up under fly and invisibility spells and cutting him. Do we have Greater Invisibility?
Do we have a way of teleporting Cade upwards? Killing the guy with falling damage might be another option. :D

I got no Greater Invis here, so I can't really help you with that.

As stated, you can't teleport into or out of the pit. It is a pocket dimension, so you'd need Plane Shift to magically transport yourself into it. In fact, I'll go ahead and tell you now that no free-standing magical effects at all will cross the barrier, as it is a portal and is specifically designed to not allow magic to pass through it (as opposed to Ring Gates, which do)(and yes... I just decided this is how it works. I don't remember seeing it in the rules anywhere. :P ).

The "building" inside of the pit looks crude and was probably built by the goblins using materials scavenged from the villages they've raided.

Okay, here's a suggestion. Someone hits Ris-Janna with a fly spell, and she activates No Light from her item. The round after that, she can DimDoor up. She's effectively invisible to the dude, so she can sneak attack him with relative impunity.
Alternatively, to avoid zappy from noticing her the second she puts up No Light, RJ can pass by the hag to get an Invis hit as well so the first round of sneak attacking is essentially guaranteed. After that, he'll know someone is up there anyway, so she can use No Light to go invisible.

Since the effect is basically whatever is supposed to fly cannot be seen while flying?

Honestly, the effect of Fly doesn't look like anything anyway, as there's no visual manifestation. It gives a creature the ability to defy gravity, but it doesn't actually look like anything. I don't think it would make someone invisible or you could find a simple level 1 spell that could make someone invisible, too, for a 0 spell level adjustment. ;)

very funny. It kills tieflings, no save.

No, it actually creates an area of darkness, not "dimness", i.e., not shadowy illumination. It provides total concealment inside the entire area that Darkvision can't penetrate.
