Knowledge (Religion) to identify the things? If they're shadows, RJ might have seen one before, as part of the first legacy ritual for Umbral Awn.

Knowledge (Religion) (1d20+3=5)

IC is getting back at me for those crits I had in the first few encounters, I think.
You've seen them before. They are indeed Shadows.

Hmmm. I was sure even incorporeal critters couldn't remain indefinitely underneath solid earth... Maybe it's just me.
Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

Exactly.  :devil

It's just you. They can hide in the ground as long as they want, and automatically sense anyone adjacent to them. So they're pretty much guaranteed a surprise round. Fun, huh?  :lol

If they don't have Darkstalker (but why shouldn't they, really), would hiding underground be countered by Blindsense?

LOTS of fun. Specially given that Detect Undead won't get past the freakin' floor.

Not unless your Blindsense can somehow see through walls/floors. Where is it from? I think Mindsight explicitly sees through walls, doesn't it? But most forms wouldn't, as they'd likely need line of effect. If it is hearing based, it wouldn't work against incorporeals anyway, as they are perfectly silent unless they don't want to be.

From Blind Fighting. It doesn't state where it comes from, so I haven't the slightest idea.

I don't think Tremorsense would work either, actually.

Aye, wouldn't work then. More reason for RJ to want to get out of the city. :P

Ok, someone might know this in game, but this is just OOC info until you make the roll: the unliving subtype doesn't make undead subject to ability damage to their physical scores.

Also, shadows aren't mindless. Dumb, yes, but not mindless. :P

It doesn't? Well, that makes stuff a lot easier. So we just let X's minions deal with it. :P
That is, if someone knows it IC.

Alternatively, let's just turn the whole party into undead right away. :P

Raoul as well. How could he be goddamn gorgeous if he suddenly stank like grave dirt?

Speaking of which, my next feat (for kicks) will probably be Otherwordly Countenance.  :D

For the record, vampires aren't sparkly. You've been lied to.
If there is any sparkle on them, it is the light reflecting off of the blood that is splattered on them.

That's what I meant, yes. This is also why Ris-Janna doesn't like light, she hates sparkles.

Sparkly vampires on any universe are to be vanquished and vaporized.

Doesn't make them subject or doesn't make them immune? I had assumed they were vulnerable since I didn't see anything about immunity in the write-up. Either way, I think its time to go.
