Chapter 55 : page 19

The agents attempt to break the sarcophagus open, forcing Diva to attack.
Diva versus the white agents. Its not going so well for her, that baby is being no help at all. WHO TOOK THE KNIFE FROM THE BABY!? Nau, yes, bad father. Baby could've saved the day. Also Diva rolled really high on initiative but those agents got really high magicnotgivingashit stat. Again, if only she had her melee party member equiped. :U

Now would be a good time for mommy and daddy turtle to save a situation which seem kind of precarious for granny. :(
I hope Diva's got other tricks in her sleeves than this.

If diva had her old body at the moment. She could probably wipe the floor with them.

Wonder why Diva didn't upgrade to Sharess' body.

Because Sharess may want it back.

Wizards seem op until they have to fight without a tank.

Then it is running and screaming.

Not to mention using someone else's body is rude ; it's like using their toothbrush. 8P

Remind me why they want Sharess back anyway? Do they think she has some way to turn things around (assuming its even possible to get her back from whatever other world her soul is in or she is still the person they remember after so long elsewhere)? Or do they just miss their friend/aunt?

Based on the way they have talked, they sound like she can be the savior to magically solve all their problems. Which is a bit odd, since those two should remember better than anyone that for her noble sacrifice, Sharess was still just a person

Yeah, but DIva is what, granddaughter? greatgreatgreatgranddaughter? of Sharess, and while nobody worships her, not one iota, she did have a nice Kamehameha in The Longest WaitTM. So just imagine what Sharess could do, if she was Drow Moses that led the exodus, then left her body to fight demon gods on other planes and stuff *eek* I bet Sharess could fart Kamehamehas in her sleep ;)

IIRC Diva is either Sharess's niece or her grandniece.

Well. Now we know why Snad was in Chel, not Felde. She was here to "supervise" her agents taking Sharess, so she could plug her into the super-gate, either summon Demon Sharess, or some other demon that fits. (Snad isn't really picky) and then use Sharess as both a symbol of her "proper" legitimacy to be Empress and a WMD.

That's my theory anyway.

Even if she succeeds, wait until she gets home and sees what her "vaulted" NIds have done to the place, trying to take down/back one airship and a handful of "rebels."

Simple math time: that pickle jar looks to be about a meter diameter, three meters tall. Just the liquid could weigh over 500 kilograms (unless it's a gas, or pure mana?). A plexiglass bottle that size probably weighs, what, about 100 kilograms dry? Add the weight of one suspended Pickle Sharess. Probably close to 700 kilograms, over 1,500 pounds, or 3/4 ton. Even if one (or both) of these Tidy Whitey ninjas are golems, that's a lot of weight to be humping back down the tower, let alone all the way to Felde (and I don't see a convenient dolly laying around). If they bust open the capsule and take just the body, it's gonna start decomposing the moment they disconnect it from the works. If they were planning to destroy the body, why try to pry the bottle out of the wall? Why not just smash the glass? So they must want the body intact and usable, which requires the bottle and the medium for as long as possible. I don't see the disconnected pickle jar and its contents surviving days on the road to Felde, which means Snads must have designs on it here in Chel *hmmm*

I'm hoping for Lightning. Some sorcery that were forgotten by drows due to living underground for so long, with new generations being born never seeing the sky, let alone flashes of lightning. Wouldn't that be fun if that turned out to be Diva's affinity, as another leftover from the old world.

UNLIMITED POWER!!! :V

Diva...comes across pretty foolish here.

Foolish in giving up the ambush from behind.

Foolish in words, which they already know.

Foolish in knowing her capacity. If you're physically unable, keep to words. Words may be ineffective too but they don't guarantee combat.

Foolish in spells, which did not so much as scuff the paint on a golem standing still. It's just a golem, Diva. Just dispel it, like you'd dispel a floater somebody rode to battle.

Now, baby with a knife may, indeed, be greater threat to the golem. At least they might scuff the paint.

The red-eyed drow is still ignoring her. As she should. No, as she must, per her orders.

Bit of secondary thoughts: There's grooves on the floor. The ones before stairs are for a summoning circle. Are these for that too?

@Basileus_Ieoannis: I reckon the cadaver is about fourth of the volume of the jar. If that's water inside, that would make it weight about three times much as the body. But I imagine body alone will prove easy enough to carry.
