According to OOTS wiki, both the paladins are level 12+. Either of them could have cast Delay Poison before O-Chul collapsed.
Second step would have been to cast detect poison to know where there are more poisoned objects nearby.

Welp, that was certainly a way to end a book.


Can't remember if there were any characters that spoke with green and orange speech bubbles.

PRE-EDIT: I looked back, and the Empress of Blood had a red speech bubble, while the Black Dragon Mother that Vaarsuvius Familicided had a similar dark-purple bubble and Gannji(the dragon-ogre) had a blue one. Given that they also fly, so I heavily suspect these ambushers might be draconic. That's all I can guess at this point.

Detect Poison has a limited range, and their attacker was both (Greater) invisible and flying. They couldn't pinpoint them by voice, and I don't know if you can target objects held by creatures with that spell, much less invisible creatures.

Said poison must had a hell of a save DC since it got through O-Chul's save bonus, though it looked like the secondary damage got him.

3.5e Paladins are prepared casters, meaning that they have to pick a set of spells from the Paladin list every morning. Of equal importance, they have an extremely limited number of spell slots, having exactly one second-level slot until 16th level, plus one bonus slot if they have a Wisdom between 14-21. Paladins have a high Fortitude save, and these two are on their own with no friendly non-Paladins around. This means that they are extremely unlikely to waste their two (at most) 2nd level slots on Delay Poison instead of more useful spells like Bull's Strength, Undetectable Alignment , or Remove Paralysis.

I'm also guessing this might be a fiendish ploy.

These two sound like Invisible Stalkers, which are air elementals and thus can fly. But Invisible Stalkers can't talk...

They can, but only Auran. They're also extraplanar, meaning they're not at threat of soul-annihilation - the green one's last words suggest that it will happen to them if whatever plan they're part of succeeds. That part also suggests that they're not any kind of fiend or other outsider.

Don't outsiders effectively permadie when killed, regardless of soul-destroying shenanigans? They might simply stop existing when their goal is complete because the spell keeping them as a coherent entity ends.

For Invisible Stalkers in particular, they actually can only be permakilled on the Plane of Air; anywhere else and they simply pop back to the Airplane.

That would be interesting to see. Especially since Miron and Laurin accidentally let some of the Snarl-bits into the world.
