If you're going to multiply yourself with illusions, you need to invest in some classes on how to throw your voice or don't talk at all.

While I was away for the past few weeks I made most of the needed home repairs caused by Hurricane Harvey.

I also used the time to help others donating time, money and supplies. I helped my friend's mother who had her house flooded, by throwing away and packing items. It was sad seeing so many people with many of their flood-ruined belongings on the street curbs waiting to be taken as trash. It'll take a long time to recover but we'll make it. Thanks for all your well wishes.

Good question. He's very disillusioned about his mastery. Ono saw right through it.

Hahaha fail xD
Well, in a way he is a master of illusion, towards himself - he didn't *see* this coming ..

I wish you and the others the very best recovery :)

Looks like this wizard should have used D&D 3.5 for his spells. The mirror image spell in that game allows you to instantly switch with one of your doubles, meaning the only ways to hit the real you is to either destroy all of the doubles or counter spell the illusion. Of course Ono probably still has multiple ways to deal with groups of targets, but at least the defeat wouldn't be AS embarrassing.

I played D&D back in the day, but I played a fighter and wasn't knowledgeable about many of the spells. Thanks for providing some info. That makes sense someone would think of the voice shortcoming. This wizard needs to study up on spells.

Might be a good skill to learn and mess with Pete. ha!

We had some major rain a couple of years ago and it flooded a record number of basements in this area. Seeing flood-ruined belongings at the curb was disturbing. I can't imagine how it looks there. Wishing you the best!

Yes, that is a good idea.
Water in the basement doesn't sound good.
