At -7, more accurately.

Yeah, I think running for it is a great idea now. Assuming you take RJ with you. :P
:lmao


Edit: His Listen check, just so you know:
Listen check (as a move action, after his free action take 10 one failed vs. Ris-Janna): 1d20+25=45

He can take 10 every round on Listen as a free action, and he has Blindsense 60' + he can target via listening "as if he could see" (combination of Tome feats). Taking 10 failed, so he spent a move action to try to listen again, and succeeded.

Of course I'll post the full stat block once he's out of the picture.

What an effing lucksack. :P

Something I noticed while browsing Tome classes (not being pessimistic at all, no sir):

Should be noted that Raoul has absolutely no clue what RJ's situation is right now. After all:

-She's invisible
-Inside an area of darkness he has no means of peeking into
-Held aloft by a Fly spell
-Inside an Invisible Solid Fog area
-And she has made no effort to communicate with her allies thus far.
Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

-Her scream of pain or whatever was heard all the way down to the ground according to PXY.

So he'd have a good idea that she might be in trouble.

She's only invisible to Darkvision. If you went up there with a light source, you could actually see her. Of course... the Solid Fog would hinder that... and Mr. Greensleeves probably wouldn't be too friendly to any further visitors. :P

Also, since he was already grappled and inside magical darkness, that Solid Fog actually doesn't really do much to him, either. It would have been far more of a hindrance to Ris-Janna... if she'd actually gotten to attack him again...

Though not that she's unconscious, per se.
Uh... yeah, she's unconscious. She's dying. Any Autohypnosis ranks? :P

Drat, I didn't figure he had blindsense. I just thought he was seeing through the darkness somehow.

Though the Solid Fog was a lot more of an attempt to just keep him in his current position.

Thing is, we may not even have heard the scream. If you assume the base DC is about -5 (It's 0 to hear people talking, and -10 for a full-on battle, so a scream is probably somewhere in the middle), and probably a +5 modified since it's in the middle of the rain, and there's a +30 modifier from distance (300 ft up, right?). So that means that the Listen DC is approximately 30. Cade couldn't make that DC even on a 20 (his highest possible score being 28). At best, it'll be about 25.

Whoops, Phaedrus said it could be heard from the ground, nm.

<<Xuuvosic, the kid's in danger. I can get her out of the frying pan OR off to a safe place, but not both. This fucker's serious and I'm through with the diplomacy. So what should we do?>>

In response to their attacker, Raoul replies, "You're making a lousy job of it. There you are, bound and blind as a bat, and you only manage to make one of us scream. You should come back next week with a better routine, jester!"

It occurs to me that comms are down, at least between anyone not in the pit. In any case Xuuvosic is many leagues out of range at the moment. That said, if Raoul can get RJ to safety, doing so is probably the best tactical option. X would have a hard time doing it with all the effects in the area. But if needed I might be able to give it a try not next round but the round after.

Yeah, if Raoul can tp RJ into the pit, that should at least buy some time. The problem being the potential for the Tree Man to attack Raoul during that time...

And RJ doesn't count as a little girl. I hear she has it where it counts!

Well, I suppose the equivalent of e-peen among female DPSers would be e-boobs, so you've got a point.

My point was, "you made one of us scream" doesn't sound particularly lousy - it sounds quite competent actually. Now, "you made a little girl scream" on the other hand...

One of six. After threatening to kill them all. Making people scream (not even killed her yet, technically) is one thing, but this guy didn't follow up on his threat. :P

Waiting on you guys. Here is the initiative order (leaving out Xuuvosic's minions):

Cade 19
Xuuvosic 17
Raoul 16
Marlowe 13
