I think the fighting is mostly over....

As for me, I think all that's left is to find out from Osle whether Xixecal qualifies on its own or if I need to squish in a fiend level (which mostly feels like slapping a band-aid on the issue since it seemingly fits the fluff in all other ways).

And if it will stop the race for huge numbers, Tiefling 1/Ghost 2/Eternal Royal 17. Lunatic Princess/Immortal Smoke. Specialise in unkillableness and having expensive shit rather than giant laserdeath. Fits less than the laserdeath does, but eh, if it avoids more trouble...

Okay, so, could everybody remind me of what they're doing?

We seem to have a Xixical, whatever Raineh decides to do, a party face, and whatever ketaro is.

Whatever I do is going to be destructive, whether I keep the magic or go for explosions by expensive shit.

Well if you decide to go with something that isn't ranged AoEs I'll probably just stick with my current character.

It's sad that you can't get Zodars drunk, even after turning their type to Outsider, given the end invulnerability. Rules out Drunken Demon, which is otherwise the perfect school thematically... hmm.

So the party reform looks like
Venn: Icegiant (single target tkos)
Ketro: Robodragon (brute force)
Nan: Pewpewdie (ranged lasers)
RD: Sailormurder (social hidden nuker with heal/debuff)
I don't recall if Frog & KSB are wanting to go another round.

Edit - I just realized RD's new character is an undead socialist that literally kicks out multiple debuffs/heals per attack. She's picking up the stealth advantage of incorporeal and still has area blasts like a diplo_checkx4 to damage. IE I made a literally move to avoid competition and RD's response is to just copy my concept but pile on as much cha-to-X as she can and use Touhou to break the crap out of it. And because Ols offered to split a stealth game from RD's nuke contest, well she is picking that up too. It's more than just purposely trying to antagonize me, it's undoubtedly a dick measuring contest for her. I give up, I doubt any of this will be any fun. Good luck guys.

Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

Ok so catching up to updating my D&D  online stuff.

There should still be 4 players interested which is enough for a basic party.

Nanshork, RD and Ketaro would be keeping their previous characters (RD would need to update her character since Ordinary Magician underwent a bunch of revisions though).

Plot wise we could resume the previous battle against the silver brain or I can throw some plot event.

As for me, I think all that's left is to find out from Osle whether Xixecal qualifies on its own or if I need to squish in a fiend level (which mostly feels like slapping a band-aid on the issue since it seemingly fits the fluff in all other ways).

Xixecal is an evil outsider so ok to 20 levels qualifying.

Well, that was my plan (update the nuke), but everyone seems a bit wary about it. So I considered replacements. :T

Tiefling 1/Ghost 2/Eternal Royal 17--The fact that Ghost means nuked HP is why I didn't start giving this stats. Immortal Smoke needs max HP, this can't get good HP... no matter how able you are to dodge something, if you can't improve your HP max, then it's a bad idea.

So then I thought Zodar 16/Balor 4: the Abyss's engine of destruction. Go for Drunken Demon... though that's bad because the strength overlaps with Ketaro and the size weirdness messes with Venn. Plus you can't get a Zodar drunk, ruling that out.

So I've been wondering Reth Dakala 4/Pseudonatural Creature 16. Take Forbidden School, pick Martial Study... get Immortal Smoke level 1 and Diplomacy as a class skill later on. "Cinder Knight of the Beyond" or something. Shouldn't overlap with others, has a  stubborn tendency to survive, and things go nasty if they get in attacks. Not sure it's evil-fiendish enough, or if it doesn't compromise something from loss of nuking.
Still short tempered.

For what it's worth, I'm not completely set on Xixecal. I've been toying with a few alternate builds as well, trying to get a feel for what would best help out the party. If we need something to soak up damage, Xixecal is still a good option, but there are other options that might be fun as well.

Typically, I like playing sneaky characters (such as Damaros), or charismatic characters. It couldn't hurt to pursue a different archetype, however.

Reminds me that I wondered about Anthromorphic Animal and a bunch of templates to get the least hittable demonic thing, then..."wait, how do I get it to do damage". :lmao
