Archangel: Lord Lathander! Lord Lathender!!!
Lathander: What troubles you my child?
Archangel: It's your priest Sesto, he's just begun raising the undead!
Lathander: oh dear
Archangel: shall I smite him for you oh lord?
Lathander: Oh no, what do I look like, Bane? No no, this will fix itself with but the faintest of nudges.
Archangel: .... I don't understand Lord.
Lathander: just watch and learn my child, watch and learn...

This is how much Sesto healed everyone. Mord does not need to use more than 2 HD.
Sesto casts Beacon of Hope, which enables regaining max HP of any healing, amongst other things.
Sesto casts Cure Wounds on Mord, Kalorn and Lorenn. They heal 16 HP each (max 1d8+5+3 (Diciple of Life)). Primus and Loklafd regain 10 HP from the healing potions (max 2d4+2).
Sesto regains 9 HP from casting 3 level 1 healing spells (Blessed Healer, 2+spell level) and 10 HPfrom healing potion.
Primus: +10 hp, 39/59
Alhana: +0 hp, 68/68
Mord: +16 hp, 41/51 (previous received Channel Divinity to ½ max hp)
Lorenn: +16 hp, 43/54
Kalorn: +16 hp, 54/63
Loklafd: +10 hp, 39/58 (previous received Channel Divinity to ½ max hp)
Sesto: +19 hp, 55/59

Ooh, Long rest and maybe a level?
We have basically defeated a few encounters simply by creative roleplaying.
You've done well! But as far as levels go, I think I will keep you level 8 for now. I am wary of adding to the complexity of PBP. I certainly will level you up eventually as I have plenty more planned for this campaign if we keep going, but I don't want to bump too fast (not that anything in PBP can be considered "fast"!)

Alrighty then. It was a thought and seemed a logical time for it. Not sure where we were on the 'track' though so yeah. I am considering the merits of a level or 3 into Sorcerer. Especially since they're testing a new UA variant which is basically right up Mord's alley.

For me it's hexblade for level 6 (to get the wraith) and for level 7 to get sweet sweet shadow of moil.

At that point then it's ... interesting. I could go fighter 4 5, 6 to get to ASI and 2nd attack (freeing an invocation) or I could stick with Hexblade to get armor of agathy even better and better spells (and a single ASI).

What I get for the ASI is an interesting choice. "logically" it should be charisma, but heavy armor master is interesting - it "stretches" armor of agathy, and the strength increase allows me to upgrade my armor.

That being said, while level 9 would have been fun, Kalorn "works" just fine at level 8, a lot less so at level 7 and lower... so I'm fine with staying put for now.

Mord really is feeling the thightness in his slots and has been since conception. The adding Sorcerer is kind of a way to free him up to cast some smaller spells and maybe buff his horrible AC.

I feel you. See it's why I took Eldrich Knight - double the cantrips, a few first level slots in my back pocket, access to a familiar... even though, on paper, Battlemaster would have been better (or only 1-2 levels of fighter). I just felt too naked with only 2 slots. And a hexblade it's even tighter, 50% at least of your warlock stuff goes to make yourself a better fighter, you have a lot less tricks up your sleeve than a standard warlock.

I feel ya. I guess I just didn't realize at first, how much of my magic would be wrapped up in 2 slots per short rest and a whole lot of EB spam.
