I vote Eli summons an Earth elemental and orders it to make a big hole in the ceiling.

"Useless"
Ever find yourself (or another) in a position where it just seems like they have absolutely nothing they can do to have any effect?

I make it a rule to always have a melee weapon and a ranged weapon, regardless of class.

That's useful, but he wouldn't do anything with a ranged weapon either, because it wouldn't be magic.

"jade regent..."
The jade regent campaign to pathfinder contains an encounter where you face an flying icemage in a storm. she can only be hit by magic attacks, since the storm disables any nonmagical attacks.

well, magic attacks and if you didn't burn the fly spell to get over the monster infested moat.

but yea, no arcane caster, or no fly/dispel magic/antmagic zone prepared by arcane caster= tpk (she has freedom of movement, so no grappling to bring her down to the ground...)

pretty sure you can turn of the storm by disabling a few crystals that go boom for massive damage, but seeing how a few of them are up above melee range... you need a caster.

Well, I can think of a few (completely unreasonable) exploits that would let you get by with a monk at level 12+, and siege weaponry might still work depending on how powerful the storm is, but yeah most D&D/Pathfinder-type things assume you have a caster or two at all times.
