That's why your just unconscious and not dead as it's first attack missed. It's second vs. a primarily stationary target did not. As for a "dream sequence" post I would prefer you did not as your the only one of the still living party members "napping" and I want to keep everyone focused on the present fight.
GinafaeI assume we've been picking up valuables as we go and aren't encumbered in any way? Actually the reason most of you are umemcumbered is that, no, except for a few items from dead party members no one has picked up any loot from the previous Tests or rooms passed through to this point, as no one posted they were searching for such things after defeating a test.
I take it Sirene is now out of combat? In which case, can she shift, move and cast a spell, or is that too many actions? You could shift as you move and once shifted still cast as your shapechanging ability is an innate function of the Druid class.
And how far away would the 4 summoned dudes be from her? That depends on what form your using 2 moves if back in her normal Elf body, one move as the faster Polar Bear.

The past two days, we've been preping for, dealing with and setting up the house to take care of Mom post surgery as she comes home today at noon.
Ginafae as your casting an AOE spell I need to know exactly where your placing the center of the fireball so I can measure the blast radius. If you can copy and paste the last map and email or pm it to me it would be a big help as you have at the moment three people possibly in the blast area, Conall(charging) Kenji(charging) Althena(immobile) as I see it.
Remember initiative is semi-random so Conall and Kenji, especially due to haste being active on both and Kenji's giant size thus bigger steps could easily charge rt into the blast.
Not trying to sabotage anyones actions but Kenji is impulsive and he is a fighter; his first instinct is to charge in and do battle. Now he doesn't know that Sirene is attempting to cast a fireball and if he wins in his initiative then he might just act before Sirene and yes he could be in the mix before she even casts her magic. So what? Do what you do and Kenji will do what he does. Dont worry, if he gets hit he will learn for next time; if there is a next time.
You two be careful over there, Cor and Ulthok are unable to help at this time. It may be a few rounds before they can help.
I've been talking to Keeper and Tann because Cor is unconscious and Ulthok is not so good either. Cor won't be attacking so I need to be sure Ulthok doesn't hurt him so I've been going over ideas with him.
As far as I can tell by converting cubic feet into square feet you'll get all 4 Minions, anyone engaged in melee with them, and the edge of the fireball will still hit Althena and Alasdair. If he has the same 75% magic resistance as a true Death Knight he will shrug it off while Althna will not taking half damage if she makes her save. As for Conall and Kenji getting hit that will be depending on who goes first.
Could be risky, but cause a bit of damage to the minions, even if they make a save for half, as your throwing a 10d6 fireball. Now depending on any protections they may be wearing or in radius of, it could be a tide turner.
Your call Miss Fae...............

I'll stick to the plan as it is. Catching Althena in the blast is unfortunate, but she'll survive. More importantly, 'Alasdair' seems to need her alive so I doubt he'll harm her even if she does take some damage.
I also doubt that Alasdair will have 75% magic resistance given that he's supposed to be a 'lesser' deathknight. But, my main target is his summoned cronies so I won't be too upset if he does save.
Finally, and more importantly, Sirene is a mage, she's meant to blow stuff up!
