    I generally opt for more utility spells and just a dabbling of offensive ones anyway so not having the attack spell I want is something fairly normal for me. The real difference here is that I've never bothered doing much with a familiar before. I decided to try it... The mental image of a cat being hoisted by a thug only to smack the thug with something like shocking grasp is pretty awesome.

    I don't think I could cast the spell until I could see the enemy anyway now that I think about it since using Riley's senses instead of my own costs my action for the turn.

    I'm back. Sorry it took so long to post. Digging out from under over a week of not posting.

    Over in the Siege of Caslte Rend game I'm experimenting with a purely support character, a Circle of Dreams druid. She's a dedicated healer and buffer/debuffer. Her only offensive spell is Magic Stone, with Hold Person and Faerie fire. The rest is healing spells, dispel magic, Enhance Ability, and Resistance. It's interesting.

    So, funny thing about charm spells. They only work if youre not being attacked. And while two are charmed by Mim, they arent charmed by Ashara. Which means a feathery guy randomly shows up claiming, quite persuasively, that hes a friend and wants to help, but before they can respond a crazy cat thing runs in and starts attacking people with fire and ice.

    Does Ashera have a death wish?

    I was about to say... That's mainly why I haven't yet posted again.

    I just hadn't had a chance to post their response yet. But if that's what Ashera wants to do, who am I to say otherwise. It's not like Mim told anyone what he was doing.

    I'll be posting soon, if *ahem* anyone *ahem* wants to change their post. But once I post, it's a done deal.

    Edit: I suppose I should let everyone else have a turn, first. This would be the "Surprise Round", as it were.

    Grody's the one who suggested trying to help them. He'd follow Mim back, but stay out of sight, hoping to be able to help once the creature appears.

    Does Asherah know about the charm? No death wish, but saw one threatening her friend with a crossbow.

    There's nothing wrong with what she did, with the information she had. Mim didn't tell anyone his plans. But now the only logical response is they all shoot her. I hadn't had a chance to resolve Mim's persuasion attempt, and he had technically succeeded on all three. And then Asherah attacked one of them.

    I am treating this as a Surprise Round, so everyone gets a turn. Zivar, Grody, Jordy and Quentin all can take a turn if they want to. Quentin can't "Shield her", as that is what the Protection Fighting Style is for, so he still has an action he can use. I suppose you can try to persuade them again, but anyone who does will have to make the check with disadvantage this time, unless someone else uses the "Help" Action to eliminate the disadvantage.

    Yay, the wonder of play by post. Okay, let's get back to the game then.

    I think it's a bit late for that...
