(Context: A group has been assembled to play Pathfinder’s Strange Aeons Adventure Path. My character, an aasimar Paladin, has Alter Self as a once-a-day Spell-Like Ability. We have woken up in makeshift prison cells without our memoreis and are watching our captor gleefully torture a man. Valerie, my paladin, shares a cell with Maerwe, our alchemist. We are all level 1.)

Torturer (NPC): “blah blah blah so much fun blah blah y'all are next blah blah blah your scream nourish me blah”

Valerie: “You won’t get away with this.”

Maerwe: [seduces the torturer to get them close enough to pickpocket the cell keys]

Maerwe: [hands off the keys to Valerie] “Here, use this!”

Valerie: [unlocks the cell, Alter Self’s into a Lizardfolk, bum rushes the torturer]

Torturer: [beats Valerie on initiative, drops her to 2/12 HP]

Valerie: [Retaliates with newfound Claw-Claw-Bite, doing 38 damage and outright killing the captor.]

Tortured Man (NPC): “Holy shit…”

Another Party Member: “Holy shit…”

Valerie: (OOC) “I said she wouldn’t get away with it.”

Maerwe: (OOC) “Damn, Val, did you lay an egg in her chest while you were at it?”
