Do I have to spend mana to keep it active against the spell?

Also i'd have to give up all my other active spells, which would literally cripple Saint

He could drop Clamor of the Departed (now that he knows the trees were once human beings).

So, to cast Organic Resilience on everyone:

Life 4 + Gnosis 2 + Words of Power (+2) = 8
-2 for Advanced Area (4 Yard Radius)
---

Equals 6 Dice (and 1 Mana for tweak) for 2 hours of 4/4 Armor.

Hmm, I think the Saint's 1 Mana spending to adjust the way his spell works, will suffice. He won't need to spend any other Mana to retain his 4 Armor vs. the Metamorphosis spell.

That said, I'm rolling 9 dice per turn, resisted by everyone's Stamina + Gnosis. Emend has to spend Mana each time for his 2 Armor, while Beats gets an auto +2, and Robor gets squat, haha!

So for the Saint, it's 9-4-4= 1 Die per turn.

Wouldn't it actually be 0 dice since Saint has the +1 stamina from the honing?

Also didn't realize I could just target everyone at once and make it one spell, that works.

If i'd known I would have had Saint do that from the beginning - his shielding spell is the best one right now, haha. Could have given everyone 4 armour.

If Beats moves out of the area of effect, the Saint can't get him with Organic Resilience without also putting it on the stump itself (and UsdiYona and Tree-Bear). It's Beats' choice of course, but just wanted to make sure you know.

Beats will be foregoing an Armor 6 vs. the spell for an Armor 2.

Also should note, that since it is technically a spell-like effect, Emend can also try to counter it with Prime as it is being cast.

I was going to ask about that but I figured it was a spell that had already been cast and not one that was being cast.

Also if Beats gets that close to the stump Saint will just not include him in the spell (not worth giving the stump armour).

It will only take Saint one turn to cast the spell anyway, not like we're THAT tight on time

yeh, Beats wouldnt have any idea what Saint is trying so would just try to forge ahead toward the stump to try and help destroy it somehow. No idea what he will try though...

Well, if Beats is going to help with the stump, he'll definitely want his force blades (Knife Fist rote) for the Lethal Damage. (Might want to edit that into your IC post).

Oh my wondrous luck.

Any way for Killer to reverse it with a shapeshifting spell or is it nor worth the effort right now?

Also, I suppose none of the life spells are able to affect the stump (or anything here at all besides the other disciples)?

Or would they work in the same way that Saint is able to heal Usdi when she's (sort of) a spirit?

UsdiYona benefits from Life, due to werewolf like hybrid stats.

But because the spell transmogrifies through lethal and then aggravated damage, it can be reversed simply by healing it away.

Mechanically, when all your health is lethal, you're a tree. When it's all aggravated, you are Spirit Claimed by the tree and not coming back without Prime 5.

Robor groans. This demonic force needs to be destroyed. Now. Focusing his willpower, Robor attempts to damage the spirit's corpus yet again.

I tried to elude to it in the post, but Robor only rolls a single Chance Die against the giant stump. He would do more harm to it simply going over and kicking it with his new club-foot.

The other trees can be harmed by the spell though, but the stump itself is way too powerful.

Not directly, it just adds 3 dice, which, given the stump's resistance, would still be reduced down to a Chance Die.

To put the stump in perspective, If the stump was a vampire, it would be like a 2nd generation in torpor.

Pretty much not going to happen at your current level. The team will certainly be able to carve their way inside to the Mastiff Hound's treasure hoard, but think about it, a stump above the surface is just the tip of the root-system iceberg below, haha!

The stump, known as Brought Low, is basically an ancient god that contracted Alzheimer's and was chopped down by another more powerful god. The flesh-trees are human victims that had wandered into the verge over the millenia. They can be saved, but not without Prime or Spirit 5.

Sarapheen had planned on telling the quorum about the flesh grove and verge, once High Oaks Castle was liberated, but you know how that worked out lol!

Running away is an underrated spell IMO

Alternatively, attack the helltree spirits that are about to fark up Tree-bear, Beats and Usdi.

I mean, i'm assuming they've been turned to spirits and are no longer human.

If they haven't been then Killer's going to get his objective fulfilled super early.

Running Away let's me employ the grove's "special abilities" haha!

The human spirits trapped in the flesh-trees can be freed if the trees are destroyed - but then they would still be lost spirits, needing to be directed 'home' afterwards.

Realizing that defending won't get him anywhere, Emend pulls out his lighter.

"Even a demonic tree should burn," he thinks to himself, as he uses control fire to set the demonic tree ablaze.

Targeting the old stump, right?
