Just caught up ...
He asks Carlig about two strangers. No, not Jon and Bodhi - the crazy mage and Planetar...have they been here yet?
Sal - elf wild mage (update 7)
Sal used Tazok's key to invade the illithid enclave. A few summons (including a first use of a mordy sword) backed up by MMM and some energy blades and a few area damage spells managed to finish the opponents off. She got to level 25 there - picking up her final HLA.
The final area in Athkatla was the Twisted Rune. The planetar showed his merits there, killing all the opponents; taking on Layene's pit fiend turned it hostile, so Sal just waited for it to disappear before picking up the Staff of the Magi.
Off to Brynnlaw where Sal watched a planetar tear up Perth. Sal spent a while looking through his spell book, before consigning it to the dustbin.
Into Spellhold. A pit fiend caused her contingency to trigger when a fireball reached a bit further past some skeleton warriors than I expected, but she had no more problems in working through that level - getting a bit of revenge on Dace Sontan on the way. She successfully learnt project image there, which is a handy spell for multiplying available summons. It was a similar story on the next level where the contingency fired again when she was taking the paintings - I had expected a trap on the first one, but it didn't come, only for it to trigger after she took the second one (also trapped). I noted here that surges can occur when using the SotM abilities - it was a nice one though that made sure there would be no need to rest before taking on Jon. A planetar was successfully produced there and made short work of him and the follow-up murderers.
After taking ship with Saemon a couple of wiltings helped clear some Gith attackers, but that didn't prevent the ship breaking up and depositing Sal in the City of Caverns. No problems there as Sal helped the king & the prince (into the next life) before shinning down a rope to the Underdark. She successfully learnt Spell Sequencer and Freedom.
