Well, we went ahead with my plan to reform wherever I chose after discorporating.

So, I went into an alleyway in Silverymoon and killed myself off. Single hits of course, so that I could make the save with ease. This left me with 4 HP when I reformed.

I won't get into the details of the events that happened, but leave you with how it finished. Just shows how not everything will work as smoothly as it appears.

DM: "She moves back, speaks a few words and gestures towards you. Make a will save."
Me: *rolls dice* "Oh yay, I fail."
DM: "You feel as though everything has gone rigid and you cannot move. Alustriel grabs her staff and begins quickly casting another spell. Make another will save."
Me: *rolls dice* *facepalms* "Yeesh, the dice hate me tonight."
DM: "She hits you in the head with her staff. She hits you for, heh, four."
Me: "Is it still dark in here?"
DM: "Yep."
Me: *reaches over and grabs d20*
DM: "Not so fast."
Me: "Eh?"
DM: "Four... subdual."

A little part of me died inside.

What was Alustrial doing in a back-alley?

And what level are you that you hope to take her out?

"Whatever she wanted."

Sorry, I just couldn't resist.

She wasn't in an alley -- I reformed near to her room and lurked there. ;)

I was only level 16 and wasn't hoping to take her out. It's a long story, but let's just say my character isn't all there and was looking to apologize for a past incident... you know, by breaking into her room at night and sneaking up behind her to have a private one-on-one conversation.

That'd provide some interesting adventure hooks.

I applaud your DM for that. Its the kind of thing I would have done. ;p

I'm still a newb so excuse the question. What is subdual damage?

Subdual damage doesn't knock down your hp, but if you accrue enough of it to equal or exceed your hp, then you fall unconscious. I think it heals at a rate of 1/level/hour. Weapons that normally deal subdual are unarmed strikes and saps, but any weapon can deal it with a -4 to hit.

And to clarify why it worked so well in this instance, for those who didn't see it, since my HP didn't actually drop to 0 or below, instead of discorporating I simply fell unconcious and was ripe for the capturing.
