Arena Battle: Gegorath vs Thaddeous Bach

3 Rounds Prep Time Agreed upon by Combatants

"Here Ye, Here Ye!" A four armed radiant half dragon sahuagin says before the crowd. "Today we will see Gegorath battle against Thaddeous Bach. Thaddeus Bach issued a challenge to any comers and Gegorath has agreed upon a battle. The field has been chosen by Gegorath, and a three round preparation concession given by both combatants during which neither can take hostile action. May the best man win!"

OOC: Note many things were agreed upon in the PMs and I didn't see anything objectionable there.

OOC I apologize for the delay.  On the weekends I'm a full time dad of a 9 month old.  Posting this complex is hard to do between "Don't touch those!" On my phone.  My prep will be up first thing tomorrow morning.

Re: Arena Battle: Gegorath vs Thaddeous Bach
Thaddeous walked calmly into the massive arena.  There could be anything between he and his foe.  An army could be hidden in the space, not that he feared an army; or really, much of anything.  He calmly begins his preparations for battle.

I'm going to assume you have a high enough Spellcraft/Psicraft and Martial Lore to recognize all I do.

Prep 1:
Quick: Assume Child of Shadow Stance.
Standard: Cast- Arcane Spellsurge


Prep 2:
Quick: Cast Burning Sword: target fists (sped up by Arcane Spellsurge)
Standard: Manafest Chameleon


Prep 3:
Quick: Quick: Dragonsight(sped up by Arcane Spellsurge)
Standard: See your future


Immediate: Nerveskitter
Init: 76  07:43, Today: Thaddeous Bach rolled 76 using 1d20+73.  Init.

Strangely, neither Thaddeous nor any of his equipment reveal anything to your Greater Arcane Sight.  It appears he has no active effects or magic of any kind.

(Blank Aura (Ex): The void incarnate (and any equipment he wears or carries) radiates no aura of any kind. Detect chaos, detect magic, and similar spells simply register him as a blank. The void incarnate cannot lower this aura.)

OoC

Re:see your future
Is that some that shows your personal future or the possible actions I will take in my future?


Re: blank aura
That is a cool effect, But if i am reading it right I would see your burning sword (on your fists), but as I am tracking that is all.

Blank aura covers self and equipment where burning fist is an external effect...shows as magic fire but not that your fists are magicked ...would look similar to if you covered your hands in alchemist fire.

Re: Arena Battle: Gegorath vs Thaddeous Bach
OOC: Agreed.  Plus you'd know something was fishy because you saw me cast...  You'd see his hands glowing blue.

See your future just affects me.  It's a class skill that grants foresight (per the spell).

This spell grants you a powerful sixth sense in relation to yourself or another. Once foresight is cast, you receive instantaneous warnings of impending danger or harm to the subject of the spell. You are never surprised or flat-footed. In addition, the spell gives you a general idea of what action you might take to best protect yourself and gives you a +2 insight bonus to AC and Reflex saves. This insight bonus is lost whenever you would lose a Dexterity bonus to AC.

Just saves me a 9th level spell.

Re: Arena Battle: Gegorath vs Thaddeous Bach
You could also notice:
-Blood seeming to pour from my eyes and an irregular red glow what whirls around me chaotically.

-My hands as well as burning with blue fire seem to have a dull red aura.

-Shadows seeming to flutter around me.
