A shame that didn't happen when Cloud killed Aeris.

Didn't Sephiroth kill Aeris?

no, you see, by the way the Masamune penetrated Aeris all it did was sever her spine. Crippling for sure, but not deadly yet.

Then Cloud had the swell idea to perform a burial at sea without checking if she was, you know, dead and not in coma due to shock.

Even ignoring the whole 'no blood' issue, it's worth remembering that dead bodies float, and, well, Aeris rather didn't.

My initial thought too, given the ease with which she absorbs information. I figured she'd caught something he'd missed (goodness knows I forget to apply my regeneration often enough), & engineered things to spare him. It can still happen!

Yeah, I just combed through the fishman race page from the guest comic week, expecting to find that they got fast heal 5 in the water or something. But no dice. Maybe there's a feat for aquatic subtype creatures only or something that's even more obscure than a homebrew class.

Really? Damn, that was my best guess. Now I'm even more intrigued to see the upcoming pages, and even more annoyed with myself for not catching up in the show yet.

Okay, so if Emily is shocked by the scrolls, I have to know; how op are they?

Probably shocked that they would bother to have/use it since the person raised loses a level.
Easier to just make a new character then play a level behind the party.

Most GM's I've played with that don't introduce something to compensate for the level-loss (like giving extra XP for essentially taking part in combats meant for higher-leveled people), give the same level-penalty to the new guys.
What I haven't so far seen a good solution for is the whole 'The party still has the old guys' stuff'

depends on the party and session.

If you have a cleric? Decidedly not. If you don't? ... more useful than you can imagine. Then again, it is true that the lost level is painful to a group like this, they'd probably just re-roll. I know people who won't go through the bother of resing for anything less than at least two twenties in their primary stats.

I imagine the shock in this context comes from the fact that she just went out of her way to prevent him dying by throwing him in the water. Probably some obscure aquatic feat that heals a bit of damage. The point being, she saved his character when he didn't have to.

Not very. In D&D, a scroll is just a magic item that's a one-shot for a particular spell. Thus, a scroll of raise dead is a one-off of the spell Raise Dead. You need to be a 7th level cleric to cast it though, unless you can make the use magic device check (Nami can) or if you're a lower level cleric, make a d20 roll of at least the difference (so a 1st level cleric can do it on a 6 or higher, this is not a difficult roll). But they have no cleric right now, so they'd have to do the UMD check.

If they did raise Zoro, he'd be a level down and he'd still be short his swords. I know several people who would prefer to make a new character then make one so behind the group. Of course, in my circles, making a new character forces you to be a bit behind anyway.

our group always has new characters join in 2 levels lower than the lowest lv character, so partial party wipes get really tense really fast especially since the GM likes to throw things CR+15 at us (who always have no loot)

Interesting. I learn new things about D & D every time I come here. Good thing Zoro is going to regain his level by killing off a horde of fishman in the arlong arc.

Well, the material cost of the Raise Dead spell is 5,000 gold, so each scroll is worth more than 6,000 gold, and they have multiple. Which means they spent at least 12,000 gold on scrolls of raise dead. That could be why Emily is shocked at that.

I place the shock being more a: 'Crap I really wish I knew that before I threw him into the water' shock rather than a surprise at the cost of them.

And normally, you would be right, good sir/madame/takeathirdoption! But in this case, they didn't spend a dime! They took those scrolls from Kaya at the end of the last arc. :D

The same person made the same comment three times and got three different, factually correct answers, from 8 different contributors.
I love D&D 3.5.

"emily's future"

im pretty sure emily will indeed end up playing sanji. she and cory seem to have a strong rivalry going on, and these players seem to be very much like their characters so that would match well with zoro and sanji's rivalry.

"Wait, but you said-- ohhhh I see"

While I was reading the comments, the way you guys kept saying "they'd rather do X then Y" instead of "they'd rather do X than Y" was throwing me off, since "X then Y" means they do X first, and subsequently do Y, rather than doing X instead of Y.

I love the contrast between the two panels with Dan and Robin/Johnny and Yosaku. First they're all "I'm too cool for this", and suddenly, "WAAAAAH!"

"Fishmen in Water"

Don't fishmen get a Strength and Constitution (possibly Dex too) bonus from being underwater? I seem to remember during the arc on Nami's home island that they all 'powered up' by being underwater.
