Very near the end now... Advice needed
Hi,

I think we are, at most, two sessions away from ending RttToEE. My players have won through to the Fire Node and spent the last session fighting a running battle with Fire Giants and Fire Elementals.

Unfortunately (for them) they took the Orb of Silvery Death with them in true Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade style, so the holder of The Orb of Destruction (Lareth) knows where they are - and he isn't shy about informing everybody else...
Hence the running battle.

Now my question. There are two Efreet in the Fire Node. They are not particularly powerful opponents but they do have that rather nifty wish granting ability.

Now why wouldn't they team up with Imix and grant him their wishes? I really wish I hadn't thought of this but I can't think of a good reason why they wouldn't...

Cheers
Dave

Nowhere is it clearly explained what Efreet "give up" to give out those Wishes. Some feel that they have "Phenominal Cosmic Power" and can just do so all the live-long day (well, once/day actually) without consequences.

Others, such as myself, believe that there's an accounting to be reaconed, either personally (they DO suffer part or all of the XP cost) or socieo/economically (there's a bank of power being drawn on from their home, and they're having to pay it back).


Also remember the Efreet are not pals or buddies of Imix. They're LE to his CE. They may like it here in the Node and be perfectly comfortable, but they've no particular desire to aid or assist the CE Prince of Evil Fire Elementals, nor the CE priest who's been acting as messenger boy on the level.

I agree with Andorax. However, if the efreeti are losing badly to the party, they might use the wishes to bargain for their life. It'd be interesting to see if the party decides that a couple of wishes is worth the price of letting the efreeti go. Especially with a paladin or LG cleric in the group.
