The party fought 3 beholder fighters and 3 beholder guards.
This earned them 2,400 XP each.
During this fight one of the beholders killed Dregnoth and released Ayla.
Onaga and Kargin managed tro convine Behayla that there was a mother beholder ahead and the party was awarded anther 600XP each for living.
and its only NOW, in the midst of madness, that the party truly realizes that Dregnoth was actually the LESSER of 2 evils… heh heh heh
amusingly enough, i had boxed text ready for Sorvani burning a fate point to try and stop the Eye
GM level planetary fate point, not so much !! LOL
its never come up in game (oddly), but powermaster fate points are fairly localized - affecting things that’ve happened in the powermasters vicinity (generally within a mile radius of the powermaster himself) - and, for the record, mortal-level fate points (like all mortal level magics) are resistable by the semidivine and largely ignorable by the fully divine.
which is why things like the obelisk (semidivine) can withstand most anything a mortal caster (or even ancient) throws at him. he can choose NOT to resist it (for things that aid him, obviously) but even mighty 200th lvl TRUE spells are more likely to be eaten, then stored away for his own use later on… so Daren walking up and hitting the crystal with a 200th lvl True Power Word Kill would just earn him an amused smirk and/or saucy “Mmmm… tasty. Gimme another !” whilst a 200th lvl True Shatter would earn him an annoyed glare, shortly before getting smacked with a semidivine Implosion in return…
(much like what happened when The Forsaken came after Obelisk Prime with crystalline kyuss worms… and why Dregnoth won’t even WHISPER the name Kyuss inside of V’ral…ahem)
