    I don't think Chandra or Jace know about the Eldrazi per se. They were both there in the Eye, but they left well before Nissa set the titans free. Chandra's been off doing...whatever...and Jace has been tied up on Ravnica doing the Guildpact thing.

    But seriously everyone, do NOT head into the final battle without taking a long rest first. That's a TPK waiting to happen, and I don't want that much blood on my hands.

    YES! SLEEP AT THE ALTAR OF THE DEATH GOD!

    Or you could find a safe place to hole up for the night and take a long rest...that would get you some slots and healing. There are plenty of easily defensible rooms throughout the map you could camp in.

    Like the bottomless pit. Or the spectator's room. Or the [redacted]. Actually, [redacted] would be the perfect place, if you could find it.

    Can I use V.A.T.S. to aim for someone's head? :p

    Also, can I make an Arcana check for free to see if I know how to penetrate ( Guess What I'm Thinkin' ) the barrier?
    No need for a check. It just raises his AC by 2, so you just have to hit him harder to penetrate.

    Round 2

    Korvat, woozy from the loss of blood, aching from the multiple wounds opened by the dark magic, swings his ax at the cultists surrounding him, but misses. Lucial, taking advantage of the distraction created by the barbarian, puts some distance between himself and the other cultists. Drawing his bow, he fires an arrow at one of the cultists that had been surrounding him, killing her. Emeryn charges towards the still-standing leader, bashing him with her morning star for 5 damage. Paravrax draws forth his diamond, summoning a sphere of lightning...which crashes into one of the training dummies, reducing it to splinters. The remaining leader, severely wounded, mutters a few words. A dark shield of energy surrounds him. He then pulls out his dagger and attacks Emeryn. His first strike glances off her armor, while the second finds a gap and strikes home, dealing 4 1 damage. Reed rushes forward, laying a hand on Korvat. Most of his wounds close, and he feels renewed and refreshed, recovering 17 HP. The two cultists surrounding Korvat strike at him with their scimitars. The first lands a blow on Korvat's shoulder, dealing 2 damage, while the second swings wide and misses. The other two cultist, have just watched their colleague get shot by Lucial, rush to the other sleeping cultists and attempt to wake them up. Two of the sleeping cultists are now awake. Strathalmere fires another arrow at the cult leader, but the shot is deflected off the dark shield surrounding him.

    While the battle rages, two pairs of eyes appear from the kitchen (room 9 on the map). Drawn to the sounds of the fight, a two-headed dog enters the room. It is quickly followed by a second two-headed dog. Two Death Dogs have joined the combat, starting next round. Their initiative puts them going after Emeryn and before Paravrax.

    This ends Round Two.
    Current Status:
    • Cult Fanatic 1: Unconscious (8 rounds of magical sleep remaining), bleeding profusely, 30 damage total
    • Cult Fanatic 2: Arrow to the shoulder, 19 damage total, really pissed off now
    • Cultist 1: Sleeping (8 rounds of magical sleep remaining)
    • Cultists 2-7: Raring to go!
    • Cultist 8: Deceased
    • Korvat: 9 damage, 18 HP remaining
    • Lucial: 8 damage, 18 HP remaining
    • Paravrax: 1 damage (from earlier injury), 21 HP remaining
    • Emeryn: 8 damage , 19 HP remaining
    • Reed: full HP
    • Strathalmere: full HP
    Just to clarify, the cult fanatic cast Shield of Faith on himself as a bonus action, and he has multiattack with his dagger. I've been rolling perception checks for the dogs sleeping in the kitchen since you entered room 4, and one of them finally heard you. Also, please verify the HP remaing math. I know the total damage numbers are correct.

    Exactly. It's much easier to be the power behind the throne than the power on the throne. Why put yourself out there when you can have someone else do the dirty work for you?

    Quote from Galerion »
    Just ask Kothophed and Griselbrand how their alliance and deal with Liliana turned out.
    They didn't have any alliance; they didn't even have contact with each other. They exist on two completely different planes. Liliana made a series of deals where what she got from one bargain was used as collateral for a different bargain; a sort of ponzi scheme with her soul, if you will. The four demons she struck deals with don't even know the other bargains are in place.
