This is a high level rules light game set in a school for magical kids, kinda a mash-up of Soul Eater, Harry Potter, and X-Men. :)

Helloooo? Anybody there?


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Sorry, still on summer break here, which means I am running around doing activities with kidlet. Not sure what everyone else's excuse is. :)
(School here doesn't start until after Labor Day. It's mandated by state law. This is also why our summer break didn't start until mid June.)

Given this is a Discussion Forum, here's my thoughts on what I know:

1) Paizo needs to make more books, and sell more books, so they are going to get 'fuzzy' with definitions and leave it up to the players, who own and manage their campaigns, to determine the differences. That might be the crux of frustrations for many folks-- realizing that while a new 'book' (and rules) might be cannon and all that, they ultimately have final say; as Lynora invoked after reviewing things. It avoids nit picking words.

2) Psychic versus psionic on a very simple level, IMHO, are identical abilities. Magic and Psionic, per the rules, are considered identical (manipulation of universal energies, effectively) where one is use of knowledge or innate internalized power, while the latter is your mind altering reality, using universal power(s)/energies. Just call them the same, life's easier. It, again, IMHO, depends on the campaign and what all.

3) For the purpose of people who might like to min-max, they look at the RAW, versus RAI, and use that as a spring board to argue their points or enjoy the 'power' that these 3rd Party or Paizo generated classes have. It's a common thing, really.

tl;dr: They're both mental abilities, thus, IMHO, identical sources.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

The difference between psychic and psionic is that we're not using psychic. ;P

I'm sure there's a wet-vac around here somewhere...

That was fun to read Dalesman :) You too FCD.

Hey, guys. I just wanted to apologize for my lack of posting. The oldest child of some old friends was killed in a car accident last week. Texting while driving they think. So it's been pretty emotional at my house. Anways, I find I'm having a hard time with some of my storylines right now because they're feeling a little too real. So I'm taking a little bit of a break to deal with real life drama before I get back to game drama. Please be patient with me. Thanks.

Well dang
I got in a crash myself the Sunday before last, but I just got some burns and bruises on my arm and a totaled car
(Wet roads, brakes didn't work right, and I was verrrry sleepy)

We are all here for you. :)

Same here :3


Take as much time as you need. :)

Maybe we should call a short hiatus until Lyn feels up to coming back?


Magic... Kind of wondering about where to go with Lang and Sara. was there something you intended to go?
