Hmm. Looking at the description for Blindsense, would it let me notice if holes are covered up by illusions, or does it only work on creatures by RAW? It mostly mentions only creatures, but the first line refers to noticing 'things' it cannot see. Does a hole or trap count as a 'thing'? :D
[spoiler]Also, if someone goes around an obvious hole or trap only to fall into one disguised by an illusion and find out the obvious one was an illusion itself, I totally called it.[/spoiler]
Yeah, I think Blindsense would let you notice that illusions are not "real" as long as they don't include tactile information (some do). If it is just a visual illusion of a wall for example, you'd be able to compare your Blindsense image of the area with your visual image and tell, though. So you can lead everyone through the mine field of illusionary walls with your Blindsense.  :D

Hmm, I wonder if we'll be seeing combat any time soon. If not, it might be worth it for me to morph into a harmless form with a swim speed. :D

Eh, I'm already morphed down into medium size, can't hurt to maneuver a bit better. :P

Waiting on you guys to decide what to do next. I might not be on here much this weekend.

Is the Hydra Spectre aware of us?

Doesn't look like RJ knows what it is.
She does know how to (re-)kill it, though. :smirk

It seems to be looking and moving generally in the group's direction.

If violence is your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.

Shameless metagaming
[spoiler]Okay, so the hydra probably has some 100 hit points. I'm pretty sure RJ can do that in a full attack action. Umbral Awn is ghost touch, but her other dagger isn't, so that one will only deal half damage on average. The IUA extra attack is irrelevant as it's not even magic.
Is the Haste buff X put on the party still in effect?

Oh, also, are we even going to fight this thing, or will we try something else first? :D[/spoiler]

Does the Tome Warmage you're using get Orb of Force?

Wow. Wall of Force and Forcecage. I don't see any of the orbs on there. That's just wrong. Doesn't the standard warmage get those? We should be adding those back onto the list methinks... WTF... a warmage should definitely have the orb spells.

*checks CArc* Yeah, it does.

To be honest, I was almost prepared to have to say "actually, it doesn't". Poor Warmage...

Damn do I wish I was 2 levels higher so I could have my attacks treated as force effects. :P

This should certainly prove challenging.

If my estimates are correct, it should be really easy to hit, but only half our attacks will hit and even then it's got Fast Healing 22. That's... pretty good. It wouldn't be able to hit us as easily at a living hydra, but considering its 12 heads are touch attacks, its low dex score and 1/2 BAB isn't going to matter.

With my high touch AC, there's a chance he might not even be able to hit me without landing a crit (and knowing Phaedrus's rolls, it will), and I'm currently medium size so I don't take the same penalties on AC or attacks that I normally do. If we fight it, I should definitely be front line, so I better hope I get a high Initiative. Anyone else who doesn't have a good touch AC (or mage armor) should stick to the back, out of its range.

The only problem with me being in harmless form is that my slam attacks don't do as much damage. My stats are unchanged, luckily, but it only does 1d8 base damage instead of 2d6 or more. :/

About the best I can do is try to stay out of range, stay hidden, and set up the occasional full death attack, hoping one of them will slip through.

Hmm, I really need to find some way to change forms faster. Standard action is really eating into my ability to attack, though I guess if all I do for a round is act as a meatshield for my comrades, I'm still doing something. :P

Aquatic Elf form was really just for the swim speed, so I can move at full speed while swimming down here.

Should I consider that as a green light to use them?

I am ALWAYS amazed by the fact that Death Attack is not, in fact, a death effect.

Hmmm. Maybe if we could hurt its will save somehow (since it uses Will rather than Fort).

Not that version of Death Attack. This one isn't a save so much as a "weak point for massive damage" type of attack.

Yes. Consider all of the Orb of X and Lesser Orb of X spells added to the list. I'll update the post in the rules thread later.
