Actually, I would reccomend to raise l33tz4n. A mythslayer would be useful here for it's simple stats (and if unfoo unsummons it, he's open for attack), and if you leave shuri's dead body there spotty can't come out to attack the party (and he's out of spells).

We don't have to. The battle is over once we kill unfooruman. Oh, and one more alternate strategy is to use ramming speed to have fooruman run so he can use spells at his leisure and to give the summons more time to fight unfoo.

O...k.

So now we need just to attack Unfoo using ordinary attacks. Seeing as he's trying to escape the Sphere, the best we could do is to surround him, and then slash him.

Or does anyone have a better idea?

The Foo movies are fooish. I watched all of them except the two latest ones, because they were probably going to be twice as fooish (they improve on fooishness over time).

Good idea. How do we start?

Frozen sea.
Missing Sam.

Dev has already slipped you a fairly major hint, and so did I when I was a DM. His was more elegantly done and useful, though.

Alright, things already look pretty shady. It would have been excellent if we had Manaflared Araches/L33tz4n so we could keep Perfect Solstice under our command, but that ship has sailed. Before we use another spell, we need to decide who gets the Manaflare. I recommend either Uberbob/Fawriel, Fooruman, or Grandma Conquista. We just have to decide if we want perpetual healing or a big gun with limitless ammo.

And we need to deal with Shuri. Being controlled doesn't appear as an ailment, so we can't save her. Furious could take her out, but he'd be left open to the Hydras. I'd hate to waste Lightning on her, but she has that Ninja Speed spell and we can't let her use it. Thoughts?

EDIT: I was wrong, their hypnosis works just like ours. Shuri can't attack next turn, but then she'll be ours again.

Ooooo, I didn't even think about Manaflare that way.
But we definitely want unlimited healing. I think.

...if nobody minds, I probably won't give any commands in our first attempt at this battle and instead just observe how things work out. If nobody minds.

Just keep contributing to the strategy, kay? We need lots of different ideas.

(I doubt I'll give any commands, either, unless things really slow down.)

Important battle notes
Again, subject to change as more information is known
  • Characters take Double damage if they cast a spell that turn.
  • Characters take Half damage if they are defending that turn.
  • Characters take Normal damage if they both cast a spell and defend in the same turn.
  • You can move diagonally. Diagonal moves do not cost extra.
  • Dead people obstruct movement.
  • We can only cast one spell per turn. Spells may be targeted anywhere and do not require line of sight.
  • Grouped characters (e.g. A/L) attack together and take damage together.
  • Attacking counts as a move, and ends movement.
  • You can move the same turn you are Raised.
  • Raise is not affected by magic immunity. Neither is Legacy.
  • Summons cannot cast spells the turn they are summoned.
  • You can't cast the spells of someone you hypnotise.
  • Antimagic can't be dispelled. Nor can Legacy

Right, I think that's all. Feel free to correct me if I've missed something out or made a mistake.

Fysics Phaliure is a charm, that causes the target's attack strength to fluctuate. Sorry if that wasn't clear. And manaflare and unload mana are charms. No, you can't stack them and turn Sam into a crazy win-the-battle engine.

Well, the first thing we should do is to Manaflare Araches and Leetzan... that way we have infinite Hypnosis!

Time for me to state the obvious again! \o/
The only real enemies are Solstice and the Snow Succubus. Solstice must NEVER be allowed to use Legacy. If the endless hypnotism really does work, then woozah!
As for the Succubus, I guess if Solstice has been taken care of, she won't be able to live long through constant thrashing.

Is it really? I thought it was just one spell per turn. Which is it, somebody? D=

We can also try anti-magic-ing perfect solstice, so he cant get legacy.

Ok, infinite hypnotism doesn't work. Let's just not attack Solstice at all, because it will be wasted effort.

And Shuriken got ed last battle, so we should try not to let her do anything nasty. She is in the perfect position to get ed to move to 3,2, attack Araches/Leetsan and get attacked by the Solstice and two hydras! Instant death!

Also, it might be helpful to know that legacy allows Solstice to teleport. It doesn't just give him infinate movement. He can go to any open spot on the map (except one surrounded on all 8 sides by people or corpses).
