Strike Back Information

Throughout history, generals always known that no matter how perfect one's defense, it is impossible to win a war through defense alone. The crusaders have withstood many blows from the demonic hordes, becoming a living shield for Golarion, but now it is time for a counterattack. In the depths of the island called Colyphyr, Hepzamirah, daughter of Baphomet himself, is creating a new army of mythic demons, and the Commander must stop her before it is too late.

 

Strike Back Objectives

Thwart Hepzamirah's plans.

  • Hepzamirah's lair is hidden somewhere in the depths of Colyphyr. There are many slaves toiling in the mines, supervised by vigilant guards. Surely they will not allow to get to Hepzamirah without a fight. However, there is only one way for the Commander — to the depths of the caves, where Hepzamirah endows her soldiers with mythic power.

 

Remove the barrier from the gate

  • Even those who boast of power rarely neglect to protect their possessions from uninvited guests. The gate leading to Hepzamirah's cave is covered by a demonic barrier. It is similar to the ones the Commander has encountered before, but charmed in a different way. The right tool is required to remove it. Perhaps something like this could be found in the mines — it is unlikely that Hepzamirah was so paranoid as to lock herself even from her own slaves.

 

Destroy the demons' lair

  • The last line of defense has fallen. The Commander has one last and most important blow left: to destroy the nest of followers of Baphomet on the Midnight Isles and kill their leader.

  • Once you put down Baphomet, talk to Nocticula. Before you leave, loot the area (Belt of Thunderous Charge, The Undying Love of Hopebringer, etc)
  • If you accept Nocticula's gift, you will receive Profane Ascension (As a swift action while in an act of passion with a willing mortal, Nocticula may grant a profane ascension. The target's name appears in glowing Abyssal runes on Nocticula's wings, and a crimson mark manifests somewhere on the target's body. The target immediately gains a +6 profane bonus to any one ability score of its choice, a +4 profane bonus to any other ability score of its choice, and the Darkvision ability.) However, if you decide to betray her later, Nocticula will try to mind control you with this gift. You have to pass a will check (DC 35) to overcome it.

Hepzamirah is dead, and her father, Baphomet, Lord of the Labyrinth, has been shamefully banished from the Midnight Isles. And even though Hepzamirah's army had time to depart for Golarion, mortals can breathe a sign of relief knowing that they need no longer fear new hordes of demons with mythic powers arriving from the Worldwound.
