I would cast it still, none of my companions are evil...but I would prefer to enter the room first in that case. And that means passing through the cultists. How do I do that in 3.5?I'll check my copy of the Spell Compendium and look for any errata. Maybe they changed it when putting it into that book from the Planar Handbook.
Tomorrow, because I'm completely fried.
The range listed on D&D Tools is the same as that in the Spell Compendium, yet the spell reads that it comes down around 'you', which makes me think it's supposed to be around the caster like as listed in the Planar Handbook. And there isn't anything in the errata for the book. So, I'm going to let you cast it at range, and we'll see how powerful it turns out to be going forward.I would cast it still, none of my companions are evil...but I would prefer to enter the room first in that case.

Hmm, for some reason I thought Caerth's spear was a longspear, but looking at the character sheet, it's only listed as a spear.
Oh well, Caerth is going to get the dire boar to try to break through the stone wall, and then Caerth will attack, if the boar is successful.
Taking this to the OOC thread.OOC: There is a storm inside, Caerth isn't evil so shouldn't be too much of a problem. But why 'eat' two OA just to get in? I had such a lovely choke point set up.
Whatever he summons will be evil (probably) and burn in the storm. Maur was made for this thing - he gets extra AC when not moving, can take damage and resists spells. But yes, the spell will take some time, I understand that. Don't take me wrong, I have nothing against you moving in, I simply wouldn't "waste" 3rd level spell if I knew.Taking this to the OOC thread.
Well, Caerth isn't exactly a tactical fighter. Instead, he's guided mostly by instinct and his volatile nature. Sure, I get why the bottleneck is a good idea (well, now I do. I hadn't considered it before, to be honest ) but it also feels like we can end these cultists sooner.
Besides, who knows what horrors the praying cultists can unleash if we let him be...
No worries. Family always comes first.Sorry, my absence took a little longer than I expected. But here I am!
Cool, and welcome back.JustinCase said:Yes, I think the reason was that druids don't get proficiency in longspears. Not sure. But it works fine as a regular (though magical) spear.
I'll post my action now.
