Alisa, Half-Elven Jester: The Planar Sphere
Alisa's time in the Planar Sphere was simultaneously safe and amusing. And while she has reached the stage of the adventure where a Blade would presumably be more capable, she continues to get good use of her Jester's Song.The Feral Halflings
In the Feral Halfling battle, Alisa employed the same approach she used against Conster: entering combat invisible running SI:D and singing. Slight problem though: Invisible Kayardi remained safe from attack despite sleeping on the job.
Redirecting, Alisa waited for Mogadish to fall and then broke invisibility when he was down.
By the time Kayardi got around to summoning his demons, Entu and Togan were both fixed as well.
Resist Fear and MGOI kept Alisa safe from the Cornugon's special abilities.
Hit and run tactics with the Staff of Striking allowed Alisa to take them down safely, but additional ProMWs would have permited a more deliberate approach.
That led to an amusing phase where three consecutive Halfling Warriors charged Alisa only to fall asleep just as they reached her. They were all chunked before waking.
Naught but the mage remained then. True to form, Alisa took him down with ranged weapons and Fleshie.Tabiela and Necre
Recalling how Kayardi had evaded early dispatch via invisibility, Alisa memorized True Sight this time.
She only began singing when her audience was in full attendance.
Unable to finish both the mages in 7 round segments, Alisa chose to take down Necre, leaving Tabiela as the only meaningful threat.
After finishing the fighters, Alisa summoned a Mislead for a little duet. Tabiela was captivated.The Elder Orb
The Elder Orb was the next of Alisa's fans to get weak in the knees (which is interesting seeing as how he didn't have knees and all...).
Btw. Note the change in main-hand weapon. Alisa had reached HLA land against the Golems. And upon selecting UAI, she became ready to wield the Scarlet Ninja-To- bringing her APR under Improved Haste up to 8.Lavok
Lavok wasn't a fan of Alisa's music it seems.
Alisa was more than capable of handling her would-be-heckler though: Bounce him Fleshie!The Tanar'ri
Against the Tanar'ri Alisa used her standard buffs supplemented by a Potion of Stone Form. With MGoI covering the Imps, ProMW the Tanar'ri attacks, and her saves the Death Gaze, she was free to take him down in safety.Tolgerias
The Tolgerias fight ended up being a touch awkward. I had opened the fight using the really rather evil Mislead->Invisibility on the Mislead->Jester's Song x2 manuever. That became even more outrageous when Alisa disrupted Tolgerias's Divination cast leaving him with no hope of ever seeing his attacker- even if he could manage to stay on his feet.
I ultimately chose to have the Mislead break invisibility just to give Tolgerias a fighting chance. That, predictably, led to another ranged based mage kill- in particular the Arrow of Dispelling->Dart of Wounding->Melee Finish variant.
(NW: I've always been inclined to restrict Mislead heavily. Going forward, I think I'll let Alisa use Mislead with the limitation that it must be left visible in the heart of the battlefield.)The End
Not much left at that point of course. Just the Elemental areas..
...and the ride home.
Alisa will probably have her next session this evening. I'm not sure whether she's headed to Bodhi's Lair or the Planar Prison. I'll let you know when I decide of course.
