I predict this will be a self-indulgent shippy meditation on power and responsibility but it's honestly hard to predict these threads

Aww. Worth a shot. 

Can she, like, make an island surrounded by a big moat?

Permalink

She can!

Permalink

Woo! And probably she wants big fences around the moat to keep, like, Cecelia's toddler from falling in. She adds those. And maybe, like, a twelve-foot deep pit in the center of the island, zombies'll probably have trouble getting out of that.

"Probably want someone capable of intervening to be watching before I summon any zombies. I guess if I plan enough wands out ahead of time that could be pretty much anyone, though."

Permalink

"We can keep an eye on you. I think this would under normal circumstances interfere with the experience helping you develop as a caster but your magic runs differently anyway."

Permalink

"Yeah. It's possible that it'll still interpret it differently than if I were fighting things alone, but I think at that point I should just... find zombies that are actually causing problems for people."

Permalink

"Once you're less fragile there'll be lots of promising ways to do that."

Permalink

Nod. "Probably harder without unpausing Golarion. But if nothing else I can try cleaning out the catacombs beneath Moonlight Falls."

Permalink

Squeeze. "Carefully."

Permalink

"Yeah. Hopefully I can get the spellbook to give me something for this first."

And she can head to her zombie arena and create and fight zombies. She doesn't think this is very dangerous, given that she's wearing plus five armor and a ring of protection and has a wand of greater flaming sphere.

If all goes well then she can check her spellbook after a couple hours of fighting zombies and oozes and giant amoebas and jack-o-lanterns and an undead owlbear skeleton.

Permalink

Nothing yet.

Permalink

Then she can keep this up and check every couple hours for the rest of the day, healing herself and creating new wands as needed.

Permalink

And eventually her spellbook will give her Giant Flaming Sphere at will.

Permalink

"I guess you can pick up lots of individual spells that way and that'll get you there eventually."

Permalink

Sigh. "Wand spells only go up to level four, I can't kill gods with them. Can't really kill them with ninth level spells, not unless I have something else weird going on. I guess I'm hoping that if I fight enough things it'll eventually notice that I want to be really good at fighting stuff in general."

Permalink

"It does seem to - generalize - sometimes. Dunno how to predict when it'll do that."

Permalink

"I feel like if I - keep pursuing the same thing for a while, then it gives me more of whatever I'm doing. Maybe we should aim to fight stuff in the catacombs. - which I guess means we're going to be spending quite a bit of time outside the demiplane. Might be a good time to set things up for the Imrainai who goes with Starfarer."

Permalink

"Yeah. We figured out which people wanted to stay with her and which wanted to go hide, right?"

Permalink

"Yeah. I think you and your dad and your brother and my sister are gonna head back to Moonlight Falls, Fazil and Mahdi and Hagan's dad and Alex and hell me and probably Rana and Cecelia and her kids are going to Starfarer's planet to be paused, and Hagan and Korva and Asmodia and Cecelia's sister and Valentine and Starfarer are staying here. Dunno about Verita and the pegasus."

Permalink

"I wanna stay!!"

Permalink

She did not even realize the kid was here but honestly the kid is everywhere. "Ask your aunt. Has anyone talked to the pegasus yet?"

Permalink

"I think I saw Alex talking to it a bit, earlier."

Permalink

"Oh, cool. I should let him know what's going on anyway."

Hey. We're getting ready to send people off and bring the other me here. Also I was wondering how the pegasus is doing, if you know anything about that.

Permalink

I think she's okay! it might be good for her to be somewhere where there's more wilderness, if that's doable, this place is actually quite crowded.

Permalink

Working on it. I don't know how to make it bigger yet. Do you think it'd be better to pause her while the other Imrainai's here, or should she stay here?

Permalink

She didn't particularly want to be moved around until there's a good permanent home for her, so I think better for her to stay, though ideally the new Imrainai would try not to mindcontrol her, of course.
