Comments on 2008-01-28 Pazuzu

Ermm… I think Kubo San is Sha-2 now… :(

The legacy is over. Kubo ‘Its-Just-A-Flesh-Wound’ San the Un-Killable, the master of minus-nine, the evader of death, finally bit the dust. It was more than a flesh-wound. Kubo San dove too far into the black waters of negative hitpoints, and found cold, cold death lurking deep beneath the surface. Woe is Kubo!

BUT, on the other hand, Kubo got raised by a Devil with a challenge-rating of 22, and a 18d6 breath weapon. That’s not your regular cleric of pelor, now is it? Certainly one to chalk up on the record books.

And even better, Kubo San actually fought decently despite rolling five ‘1’s. He bravely stood before the Efreet that put Nanami down, and slew him as he turned to flee like the big pansy he was. And he never agreed to calling on the demon, despite Nanami’s panicked bantering. Finally, Kubo San bravely stood face-to-ugly with the Shameek, and took over 85 points of damage in a single round.

And even better, Kubo’s back, and almost as bad. But you wouldn’t know it, because you can’t see him. Actually…

…he’s standing in your shadow right now…

Hahaha, awesome! :)

Fixed that level for you.

Let me also say that the recent batch of freed slaves have already started talking of the Prophet Kubo who will one day return to his chosen people and lead them to the Promised Land where the trees are lush and green.

Heretics have been known to sing “… where the grass is green and the girls are pretty!!” while Kubo talked to the refugees of Dawwad.

Great comment on your death Kubo! :-)

What makes a great invincible fighter even greater? When he accepts himself beeing mortal! Philosophically speaking, this is the only way to grow beyond your death. I miss the monday evenings…


p.s. especially about the “getting used to high end arcane magic”! :-D

Actually, it was a Demon Lord, not a Devil. Big distinction here (I mean, Chaotic Evil is bad enough… But Lawful evil is completly incomptaible with Saito’s personality.)

With the “High end arcane magic” Alex probably mostly means “High end arcane magic used against the party”. My highest spell is now level 4, compared to Wish which is level 9…

Maybe, once Pazuzu becomes Kubo San’s shadow. And then Nanami will fully serve Kubo, the one and only master. ;)

Sorry, sorry. My mistake. It was a Demon Prince that saw it fit to restore breath to Kubo San’s lungs.

That said, not enough credit has gone to Saito, who selflessly summoned the Demon Prince and made the bargain. The true hero of the day was not the man who stood in the shadows, but rather the one who remained unnoticed.

And here I was thinking that just like in real life, the hero is he who takes the credit. As in: “Please don’t tell anybody that…” :grin:

Strange, I seem to remeber something about Kubo being my friend now and holding me in eternal regard because of me making a deal with that demon… must be my memory in that case

– Daniel B 2008-01-30 23:49 UTC

Yeah, that was some pretty cool shit. Kubo San is impressed.

– Marco 2008-01-31 11:28 UTC

Oops… now I read your post again. Seems I misunderstood…
