Fire Temple Altar Question - Please Help
I currently have the party allied with the Water Temple and the assault on the Fire Temple will happen on Saturday. I have one question for anyone who ran this scenario.

Did you consider the Altar a magical object and give a saving throw against the disintegrate?

If so, I calculate the fort save at +11:

2 + (1/2 caster level)
The text says it was created by an Efreeti's wishes, which are cast as an 18th level Sorcerer.

This seems to downgrade the use of the scroll by Nilbool as he has to make a caster level check + deal with a good Fort save by the altar vs the DC 19 of the scroll.

Just curious how others handled this.

Thanks,

Ron

That seems reasonable. I had other comments from this thread.

I vaguely remember that I came up with about the same number for the alter's save. But IMC it failed the save, even with the decent bonus, so it can happen.

IMC, it made the save (I came up with the same DC as you), but the scene was still useful -- the damage it took showed the party that it was vulnerable to damage, and after the kuo-toa had Word Of Recalled away, and the party had beaten the fire temple, they bashed the altar to bits with a bag full of maces (I have a house-rule that doing damage to items with hardness does the same damage to the weapon itself, so a mace can only do 20hp of damage to the altar before it breaks itself). It was the first time they'd destroyed an altar, so it was quite useful to show them that it was possible and helped define their goals for the rest of the CRM (destroy the other 3 altars).
