The 'flashbacks' were retconned content.

I really hope they aren't retconning Promethius's backstory instead of working with the multitude of threads that were already available.

Liberty's Edge

That's the problem with nerfing a character for the sake of the narrative. You can only get away with it so many times before the audience starts to think the character's skills are informed abilities.

Liberty's Edge

Barry gets hit by ordinary things all the time. Do you remember the time he struggled to overcome Heatwave and Captain Cold - normal guys with guns.

Liberty's Edge

It's kind of sad that Yo Yo in Agents of Shield (a B-list character at best) seems like a more competent speedster than Barry.

Liberty's Edge

Oops. Wrong thread.

Liberty's Edge

I really didn't think Cisco would fall for that b%@$#&#+. He's too genre-saavy.

It's almost like the characters in each show occupy some gamist universe where the dangers constantly rise just high enough to challenge them.

I think the power level in general is a lot higher on Earth-38 (the GM for that show is obviously generous with the point buy). Alex and James' power armor allows them to fight on Supergirl's level. From what we've seen of Ray's atom suit he's still a long way from that kind of power.

Liberty's Edge

Ragman at least has useful magical powers. All the other recruits are terrible.

Liberty's Edge

I'm cool with Mick being a team player. It's just annoying that the writers continue to portray Mick as dumb muscle - a role he's poorly suited for considering they have multiple people on the team with super strength. He's had literal lifetimes worth of combat and technical training during his time as an assassin for the Time Masters. Since rejoining the team all of that was forgotten.

Liberty's Edge

In Mick's defense, he's caused the least damage to history (in season 2 at least).

Liberty's Edge

I'm not suggesting he become some kind of ultimate badass. I'm suggesting he know how time ships work. White Canary can continue to be the best fighter in the history of everything.

So your argument is that White Canary should be an expert at things she knows nothing about because... feminism?

White Canary can be the ship's leader, the best fighter, the ultimate seductress, etc. Mick should be their technical expert because he spent literal lifetimes undergoing time lord training. Instead the writers act like that whole thing never happened.

Liberty's Edge

I don't understand your argument. Because White Canary is inexplicably a time travel expert Mick (who should be) cannot be?

I don't foresee Kara necessarily being on board with biological warfare but I could totally see the likes of Oliver and Sara using the virus as a threat.

Liberty's Edge

I am kind of bummed that the show doesn't do more with Mick's timelord training. He should be the one responsible for maintaining the ship and explaining time travel rules to the crew. He endured lifetimes of training/indoctrination. Did he just forget everything when he came around and rejoined the good guys? I would love a scene where the team is faced with some complex technical problem and Mick just shrugs, steps forward, and fixes it with ease.

Liberty's Edge

This definitely felt like more of a proper crossover.

*Despite the abundance of characters I felt like everyone got at least a few worthwhile lines.

*Cisco's anger with Barry, while entirely justified, is getting a little old. I don't expect resolution right away but I wish the writers wouldn't spend so much time dwelling on it.

*I love the inclusion of Supergirl but adding her to the cast creates the classic optimization problem - you've got one character several leagues ahead of the rest. Anything that challenges her will squash everyone else. Anything that the others can handle would be wiped out in an instant by Supergirl. Mind control worked as a one-off but I'm curious how they're going to make the Dominator's a believable threat in the next two parts.

*Wally going to HR for training makes zero sense. He's got no experience with metas, no scientific background, and no combat skills. It'd make more sense for Wally to join the military or something.

Hello!

PM sent...
e.

Trade completed. Thanks!

Liberty's Edge

Bah. The more the I read about this game the more enamored I become with it.

Liberty's Edge

I saw the KS for this game the first time around. I'm super intrigued, especially after seeing folks playing it, but the price tag and the assembly required is enough to scare me off.

Liberty's Edge

I'm curious what makes this an eternal problem? Has your local group argued about this issue for a while?

Barry continues to be the worst speedster.

If there was ever a time for the electoral college to buck the trend now would be it.

Liberty's Edge

The cold gun is definitely cheaper to animate than shrinking and flying around - especially since the cold gun doesn't seem to do much freezing since the first couple episodes. Colored 'lasers' are super affordable.

Liberty's Edge

I'm hoping giving the cold gun to Ray was more about inspiring him than giving him something to do. The ship has all kinds of futuristic energy weapons on it - some probably more effective that cutting edge 21st century tech. The fact that Ray hasn't already found something on the ship to weaponize seems silly.

The moment I read 'black blade destroyed' alarms started going off.

Liberty's Edge

I tend to agree. While Ragman is my least favorite thematically (didn't the showrunners swear off magical mumbo jumbo after last season?) his powers feel like a legitimate contribution to the team.

The rest of the new recruits feel like filler at best leaning more towards dead weight.

Liberty's Edge

Again, why is Curtis on this team? He's useless. He couldn't bring down one of Church's goons and had to be bailed out again.

Liberty's Edge

Another great episode. I'd say the storytelling this season has been 100% on point.

I'm more or less happy with what we've got as far as Robbie's origins are concerned. I kind of hope they avoid completely defining his powers as coming from Nicholas Cage.

Liberty's Edge

Most of the new team feel pretty useless. Curtis in particular seems like a burden 90% of the time.

Oliver is stupid less often than Barry because the plot isn't as dependent on him running the IdiotBall for it to function.

Liberty's Edge

It's still plenty stupid but there's certainly less stupid.

The hawkpeople are gone. This both helped with the cast bloat and reduced the highest concentration of drama/idiotball. Captain Cold and Rip are also gone - the latter also being a nexus of drama.

There's still plenty of silly time travel stuff but otherwise what's left is shamelessly comicbooky in a way that works pretty well.

I think the inclusion of Firestorm as a core member is generally a bad idea. Using him on the regular will cripple the budget but consistently coming up with reasons for him to 'sit out' just feels contrived. The best answer is to just omit him and bring him in on special occasions.

Liberty's Edge

I'm in! I've got a level 5 bloodrager.

Liberty's Edge

That'll work.

What scenarios are on your shortlist?

Liberty's Edge

Is anyone interested in a GMing exchange for a second slot of the gameday? I'll run something you need/want to play in exchange you running something for me.

Otherwise I'll just grab something off my recruiting list.

Liberty's Edge ****

I'm consider running another scenario or two and wouldn't mind playing one more.

Is there someplace specific we should post/recruit for these games? Is the gameday site still worth using?

Liberty's Edge ****

I'm 110% in favor of supporting local game stores but I hate owning physical product. I think own 3 actual Pathfinder books (and they never leave the closet). The rest of my Paizo goods were all purchased as PDFs.

Unfortunately, this kind of thing creeps up from time to time. Venture officers are volunteers from the community and sometimes the wrong volunteers find themselves in positions of power.

Liberty's Edge

Paizo still has yet to create a large bear animal companion. Because of this you have to jump through some hoops into order to ride a bear as a mount.

Option #1: Undersized Mount

Option #2: Beast Rider Cavalier archetype.

Option #3: Be a small race. =(

None of those are particularly good but if you've got a theme stick to your guns!

I'm sure this was mentioned somewhere but when are we good to start Serpents' Ire?

    I'm going to be playing a pregen. The character I'd planned on playing in this one is still stuck in another game.

    It looks like we could use a Kyra.

    Liberty's Edge

    Correct.

    Liberty's Edge

    Sorry about the delay. It looks like my other game isn't going to finish up in time.

    Hrm. That token is awesome...

    I'll be playing my brawler/cavalier.

    As a GM I tend to not care. If a player wants to optimize himself out of a game the resulting disappointment is on him. If the other players are disappointed they can looked to their overly optimized comrade.

    As a player I wouldn't mind something like the OP's suggestion even if it's wholly impracticle. These days I tend to heavily curate my games. If it looks like I'm going to be seated with a player/character that's likely to steamroll the scenario I'll just sit out. Opportunities to play are more plentiful than actual scenarios.

    Liberty's Edge

    I'm still up in the air on which character I'm playing. The character I want to play is in a game. I'm hoping he'll finish up in time for the gameday but it's not guaranteed.

    Liberty's Edge

    Dot.
