    The Lady of Pain can be defeated by plying your DM with copious quantities of his or her favorite gift, food or malt beverage, complimenting them on their appearance, and suggesting to them that more is forthcoming if the nasty problem of the " in blades" (as one player I used to know called her) went away.


    Or, to put it another way...

    You don't tug on Superman's cape,
    You don't spit into the wind,
    You don't pull the mask off the ol' Lone Ranger...

    Actually I like the idea of an Armageddon in the Planes and would like to run it. I just want a "By the Book" answer so that my Rules Lawyers will be satisfied if I spring it on them (don't laugh... every group has at least one or two).

    See above for my second answer. If any rules lawyers start asking, start quoting the old Jim Croce song, line by line, until they get the point.

    Yeah, the purpose of a ninja is to flip out and kill people!

    Facts:
    1) Ninjas are Mammals
    2) Ninjas fight all the time
    3) The purpose of a Ninja is to flip out and kill people

    Ninjas kill people all the time and don't even think twice about it.

    Piratecat, I thought that Ninjas were the natural enemies of Pirates?

    Officially, she is undefeatable, you'd better start whacking your rules lawyer with a big stick and tell him that your setting doesn't need to be 100% official. By the book, we don't even know what the Lady's defensive capabilities are, simply because not even gods can survive long enough to actually strike... but I understand your hatred of "my Dad can beat up your Dad" arguments, I loathe them all the same. Luckily, the Lady doesn't actually beat up anyone, she only acts in self-defense and defense of the city. Spectacular actions such as the one against Aoskar are within her power, but they don't actually happen, the destruction of Aoskar is the only instance I know of the Lady directly killing a god.

    No overgod in Planescape (despite what certain factions claim).

    Then, sadly, you are out of luck.

    Dropping a cottage on The Lady using a tornado always works for me. Another method is to get a big black marker pen and erase her name from every RPG product that you own.

    I'm currently working on killing off the numbers: 103, 571 and -1003.4 and the letter D. Using a stat-less item didn't work, but I'll probably resort to using a 'spell without a description'
