Saturday me and my buddies captured Tiamat in a Forcecage. We have half an hour until it wears off and one more opportunity to cast Forcecage. Wat do.
Be very happy your DM didn't think to dispel it, seeing as how she likely has the spare spells to do it. Or wonder if she is truly Tiamat, instead of a pretender or lesser aspect of the goddess. But at any rate, your best bet, assuming lack of godslaying artifacts, favors from other gods, bards, and other useful items in the face of an actual god may be to planeshift to Sigil in a hurry.
One plan is to draw straws and the loser has to take our portable hole and handy haversack and turn them into each other when the forcecage goes down. I think our DM wants us to approach this like a puzzle instead of a combat.
Doesn't forcecage have some absurd strength requirement that can overpower it?
How about Planeshift?
How about greater teleport/teleportation gate?
I mean come on. It's a god. That's just a 9th level spell.
Wait, if forcecage prevents interaction from the outside upon whatever is inside it as well as inside to outside … we didn't trap Tiamat, but instead are providing shelter to her from whatever she is hiding from. Therefore, the best answer is ask what she is willing to offer for us to use the second forcecage upon her?
We're in 5th edition, no strength check to break, might be able to plane shift out I'd have to check on that, and you can't teleport in or out. Again, the DM wants us to solve this like a puzzle or something. We can't beat Tiamat in combat, there's only so much damage three mad hombres can do.
Cast the other one and run as far as you physically can, because when it wears off you will have an angry fucking DRAGON GOD that you have shown up and embarrassed. If you find a dark crevice on the other side of the planet you have a small chance of living an average lifespan, I'd take it.
>/TEE GEE/ IS A SHIP BOARD
Have you tried talking to her? See what she wants. Cast the next forcecage before the first one runs out and prepare the double infinitybagbomb just in case.
Also, you're probably not going to have this opportunity again.>>43436576 Roll to seduce. Having one of the mostly powerful creatures in existence as a waifu isn't magical realm shit [spoilers]unless you're into that[/spoiler]....it's powergaming.
Main issue with trying to seduce Tiamat is that she might then make you fight her lovers to see if you're worth more than a midnight snack, and if so where on the list of useful ones you fall. Then again, that would make for a strange tourney, fighting your way up the tiers of a goddess's potential consorts to be at their side.
Since this is apparently the weakest and stupidest Tiamat to ever exist, just cast forcecage again and let it asphyxiate since a fuck huge dragon will probably use up all the air inside its space pretty quickly.
Checking the rulebook, it seems they can escape vie teleportation/interplanar travel if they can make a Cha save. If she's got any of those left to her, you guys are probably screwed.
