Defender of Oerth
@Knightfall Can Tim make it to where the Mimic is (same exact square) without provoking an AoO? I have an idea. Tim could sheathe his sword as part of a move action, move the where the Mimic is, and get 1 attack with his shield against the Doppelgänger. I was thinking that hitting with the shield is more of a short "punch", one without the follow-through that a sword swing would have, one that wouldn't risk striking the portal. Thoughts? If this isn't possible, then Tim is probably going to refrain from attacking at all. Tim is in-between a rock and a hard place. He doesn't want to risk hurting the genie / angering the DMK; but at the same time, if the Doppler hurts her again, it may force Tim's hand, because he can't stand by and watch an innocent suffer, either.
