Cap x Winter Soldier is canon, duh.

He stopped a helicopter with his bear damn hands so they could be together.

Liberty's Edge

Eh. I actually loved the stuff leading up to Secret Wars and I loved Secret Wars itself. I suppose I was mostly dissatisfied with where the chips landed when the Fantastic Four put the universe back together.

Liberty's Edge

Yeah, I don't claim to have any special insight into what 'status quo' means in this case. My comics news is limited to a spattering of articles and a couple related Youtube channels I follow.

I don't understand the argument that a return to status quo won't make people happy. They're unhappy about the changes. Return to status quo is exactly what they want. It likely won't bring everyone back and they'll probably lose some of their new subscribers but I think the Marvel Money People have determined that shaking things up as much as they did has not proven profitable compared to rehashing the tried and true.

I was never a Thor fan so I don't really care who call themselves Thor these days but I did like Hulk and I'm one of the few people that likes Bruce Banner (when he actually gets to have some character time and agency). I loved Cho when he was introduced as Herc's buddy but I wasn't impressed with him as Hulk and I'm indifferent toward She-Hulk. I would definitely resubscribe if Banner came back as Hulk (assuming he didn't come back completely different like what they did to Hercules).

Liberty's Edge

I realize there's probably a lot of factors involved but I'm not the only person that canceled all their Marvel subs in light of ANAD. There's a reason they're rolling this stuff back and I'm confident the main one is their tanking sales.

Liberty's Edge

This article talks about it some.

From the Article wrote:
I am told, as Marvel brings back the X-Men line with a bang, to expect a return to more of a status quo for titles such as Thor, Iron Man, Hulk and more. A more familiar looking Marvel Universe by the autumn – although, just as with Captain America, as classic-look-characters return, expect new characters to keep a number of their books.

Liberty's Edge

I don't know precisely but that's the promise of the big Marvel 'rebirth' thing that's coming up. I would assume it's going to mean rolling back most of the stuff that happened during/after Secret Wars and ANAD.

Liberty's Edge

Is anyone as excited about the return to status quo as I am? I want to see an evolving narrative but I don't think I liked a single thing in the ANAD line. The only character I continued following was Hercules and that was only out of devotion to the character, not because I was enjoying his stories. Hercules's CW2 tie-in ended months ago so Marvel's getting zero dollars from me currently.

Liberty's Edge

Anyone with any amount of exposure to drug addicts should know that you can't scold someone into breaking an addiction.

Liberty's Edge

Unrelated to the silliness of their magical gun control reform: Did Wilddog's flashbacks bug anyone else? Chewing out his wife over her drug addiction? Sending his daughter to his room when there's obvious signs of a break in? I understand the guy's a little dense but he's supposed to have street smarts.

Liberty's Edge

Yeah. I call b~$+~@%$ on a gun control law that somehow helps limit gun violence without infringing on gun owners rights in any way.

1) Intentionally purchasing living creatures to sacrifice would be an evil act.

How am I being a jerk? I didn't claim that the scenario in question wasn't evil. All I did was point out a fallacy in the claim that sacrificing living creatures was always evil.

Liberty's Edge ****

Sacrificing living things has been a part of human culture since like... forever. It's a part of every major religion (that I'm aware of) including the Christian bible.

Death Knell is evil because it's explicitly named as such. Sacrificing a living creature for other purposes - say for a nature oracle's natural divination - is not necessarily.

I agree with the general consensus of 'no' but I want to address the thought that sacrificing living creatures is somehow inherently evil. It is not.

That is all.

Liberty's Edge

Ugh. Vox.

Still it was a video worth watching. Why does anyone invite that woman to interviews?

Liberty's Edge

If this is for PFS I wouldn't worry about it. The standard shocking grasp magus does plenty of damage for most PFS scenarios without dex to damage on all their attacks.

Liberty's Edge

I don't think Kellyanne is going anywhere. She's just doing her job as a professional distraction - to lie and spin the random nonsensical stuff The Cheeto constantly says into submission even in the face of irrefutable facts. I don't think Trump can get rid of her. Who else would be willing/able doing to do her job 24/7?

Check out her interview with Jake Tapper. She's an artist.

Liberty's Edge

I'm in the 'find another GM' camp. His style of GMing works fine in a one-off Mythos game but Pathfinder isn't that style of game.

Unfortunately, I felt the show failed in the most important way - it's simply not funny. I watched the pilot, and after 10 minutes of the 2nd episode I gave up.

It upset my roommate but I agree. It's simply not funny. I'll give it a few more episodes to find its feet but I don't have high hopes.

I really don't understand who the show is for. It's not involved enough with the source material to appeal to genre fans and it's too weak as what is (comedy) to appeal to a general audience.

Liberty's Edge

I'm definitely grateful but I thought you wanted to wait until the end of the month to start this?

I'm aiming high personally. I can bring a rogue 8 or cavalier 9.

Edit: I'm leaning toward the cavalier.

That's....a big f$+!ing dude in that suit. Could be cool.

Granted the video quality is low and the perspective is kind of far away, the suit looks pretty damn good. With a little CG touch ups I think it's going to look great.

Give that costume designer a raise.

Liberty's Edge

I mean, I guess? Nitro isn't exactly the most popular character so don't expect cheering from the masses. As far as enhanced individuals go, he's a good pick for the show. Pyrotechnics is a lot cheaper than massive amounts of CG.

I was pretty amused when Barry called himself the fastest man alive. It's been proven, multiple times, that he's not.

Unrelated to Barry's blatant misrepresentation of his speed: Apparently they're switching to a physical costume for Savitar going forward. I'm pretty excited. As giant CG monsters go I felt like he was a few steps below Grod and King Shark.

Liberty's Edge

Sweet. What were you looking to play? I'll start recruiting later today.

Liberty's Edge

I'm looking to play the following:

#4-17 Tower of the Ironwood Watch
#5-3 The Hellknight's Feast
#5-18 The Stranger Within
#5-23 Cairn of Shadows
#5-25 Vengeance at Sundered Crag
#6-4 Beacon Below
#6-18 From Under Ice
#7-3 The Bronze House Reprisal

It looks like I got a volunteer for Tower of the Ironwood Watch already.

I appreciate the offer Khel. I'd still be happy to run something that you need in exchange.

Liberty's Edge

I'm afraid not. I'm looking for stuff in season 4+.

There actually are scenarios in season 0 I haven't played but they're all retired. =(

Liberty's Edge

Is anyone interested in a GMing trade? I'm trying to complete a few older seasons and I'm having a hard time getting tables together for those scenarios I'm missing.

I'm exchange I'd be happy to run whatever you'd like. I might even be willing to do a module or AP dungeon if you ask real nice. =P

I've got a similar character I'm playing through Second Darkness but his mutagen is the opposite. Through medication and willpower his furry side is kept in check but when things are tough he exposes himself to an 'antidote' which negates his suppressants. Narratively that made more sense to me.

Mechanically what you have looks good. I suggest maxing out preserve organs over healing touch and spontaneous healing. The familiar will give you more than enough durability and I wasn't super impressed with healing touch. For combat perks outside mutagen I'd grab a conductive weapon.

Liberty's Edge

That sounds about right to me. Iris is saved and Wally is nerfed so Barry is relevant again.

Liberty's Edge

Simplistic or not his graph illustrated the problem. Over the course of three seasons Barry's only gotten 25%-30% faster. Wally has accomplished that in a matter of days/weeks. Assuming he can maintain that kind of growth Wally will be blowing Barry out of the water soon and, in theory, become fast enough to compete with Savitar.

Liberty's Edge

Monks should never have AC troubles. They get two stats to AC (one physical and one mental), a scaling class bonus, and can burn ki points for a big boost when necessary.

What's your current build? I have a few monks in PFS and they are nigh unhittable most of the time.

Liberty's Edge

We've known Barry is far from the 'fastest man alive' for a while but last night's episode establishes Wally as objectively the better speedster, right? I wonder if Barry will fall back to a support role going forward. Maybe this will season will end with Wally losing his powers or otherwise getting nerfed so Barry can remain relevant in season four.

Liberty's Edge

I can forgive that one. He wasn't ragged out at the time. Without his magical gear he's just a dude.

I actually like the idea of Jimmy becoming a superhero in his own right. I don't like the way it was portrayed in the show.

That said, Kara is definitely out of line. She just saved a world with the help of several non-powered folks - some without power armor even. If they pull the 'because I care about you' card I might flip a table.

Draining the swamp proved to be a 'political promise'.

Unless you think draining the swamp and then filling it entirely with swamp monsters qualifies.

I feel like 3.5 was generally lower powered in a way that I prefer. I understand all the god-wizard/cleric staples existed in 3.5 just as much as they exist in Pathfinder but the god-wizard never came up once in the various campaigns I played in and GMed. In 3.5 'rocket tag' was a problem that came up in the mid teens. In Pathfinder rocket tag seems to start as low as levels 7-8.

Liberty's Edge

Bojack is easily my favorite television show. Ever.

It's quirky, funny, and often heartbreaking. It's probably not for everyone but if you deal with depression or know someone that does, I highly recommend it.

Liberty's Edge

I kind of hate how often they Worf the other characters to make Oliver look awesome. Black Siren was quick enough to scream bullets from automatic weapons out of the air but Oliver's throwing dart/sedative catches her off guard. Seriously?

I was also annoyed with how easily Prometheus dominated Siren. We're talking about a metahuman that was respected by Zoom - a dimension conquering super-speedster. I understand Prometheus is a ninja but Siren shouldn't be taken down that easily.

Liberty's Edge

The flavor of the class does not fit the mechanics when it comes to the barbarian, even more so when you start talking about the savage barbarian. Unless you're talking about a specific hyper optimized DR build, barbarians aren't inherently 'so tough they can take the punishment'. The +4 constitution does not match the downsides of rage (the -2 armor class in this case). You're talking about being hit 10% more often in exchange for 14 extra hit points at level 7 when the savage barbarian 'comes online'. That 14 hit points means nothing against the ~30 damage per round a CR 8 monster is doing according to Pathfinder monster design guidelines.

Liberty's Edge

Why is it okay for swashbuckler/rogue/whatever to get their AC from the stat they're already stacking (dex) but not the barbarian? Especially when dex is an inherently more valuable stat.

Liberty's Edge

No, I'm refering to episode 11 of season two.

Recap from the Wiki wrote:
The team discovers Turtle's death and Jay suspects Harry. Cisco asks Harry for help in controlling his vibing abilities. The latter determines they are connected to Cisco's fear response and triggers a vibe which alerts the team that Eobard Thawne is back. Harry surmises that this version of Thawne is from a point in the future before he went back in time to kill Nora and was protected from being erased. Cisco has a vibe of the future, and the team learns that Thawne is planning to use tachyons to return to his time. Barry arrives and destroys the machine. After a race around the city, Barry stops Thawne and imprisons him at the particle accelerator. However, his capture causes a rupture in the timeline that threatens to kill Cisco, so Barry sends Thawne back to the future to save his friend. Meanwhile, Patty discovers Barry is the Flash but, when he refuses to acknowledge it, she chooses to leave the city. Iris learns that Francine's death is imminent and reconciles with her. Wally takes her advice to do the same.

Bolded for emphasis.

Cisco vibes the future. They use that knowledge to change the future. It gives Cisco Vibe Cancer so they have to put things back to the way they were supposed to be.

How is this situation different?

There was serious catharsis in this episode. I'm glad Curtis finally acknowledged that he can't fight and needs to stay off the front lines.

Liberty's Edge

Mendev may be lawful good but I've always got the impression they lean toward the lawful more than the good.

Execution on sight is the most likely result. There might be some kind of trial but assuming you're found guilty execution will be the sentence. Maybe if you were some kind of amazing war hero banishment might be possible.

Liberty's Edge

I hope they explain what's different from this situation that 'changing the future' is allowed.

Last time they tried something like this Cisco got Vibe Cancer and they had to change things back.

Liberty's Edge

I was looking for base classes with smite but Warpriest definitely counts.

I missed a word for that second one. It's supposed to read 'Another full bab base class with good will saves besides paladin'.

And characters that want to use Dex for combat should just be archers.

Dismissive arguments aside, it's still a character concept that's completely unsupported.

Liberty's Edge

*Unarmored/naked barbarian - There's an archetype for this trope but it's awful.
*A way to apply strength to AC - Related to above. If Dex can apply to attack and damage rolls strength should be able to do it too. Apply feat taxes as necessary.
*A dragon disciple-like prestige class that doesn't force a character into a specific theme.
*Another full bab base class besides paladin.
*Other ways to get divine grace besides paladin.
*Other ways to get full progression pay on hands besides paladin.
*Other ways to get smite X besides paladin.
