Just remember Fei, the Sun can't hide forever.
[...], they had chosen to do the right thing after all. Not the pleasant thing. Not something, if they had their preference, that they would ever do again. Not something that would make it easy to sleep at night. But the right thing.
(Posts soon, gym now.)
Hmmm, smash bros music is a good idea, as long as I dont pick anything too iconic (lots of gamers in my group who would recognize it).
I'm sure I can find some suitable classical too... not sure if opera is the way, but maybe... I'll have a listen to some stuff.
Whelp, there's a tornado warning here! One of my cats is literally hiding under my chair right now cause of the thunder. Sounds like it's a good time to get some posting done!
Alright guys, need some help!
I've got a big battle in my IRL game on friday, during which I plan on having the PCs Ascend to Mythic status.
I need both significantly epic battle music, along with some good quality ascension music (fake choral latin is a must!)
(Youtube links preferred)
(Posts in a bit)
Yup, this is the third party source I was talking about.
So, as usual, I'm wrong, disregard my babbling.
Traditionally I'd agree with you. No way PCs should be able to fight gods on even ground.
Of course, as has been mentioned recently, story trumps all.
Though I do enjoy reading some of the statlines for things like Thor from the 3rd edition Deities and Demigods book.
Pazuzu, just to use an example, is CR30 (the same CR as Cthulu, a full god). The stats I found for Charon in PF is from a 3rd party source, so I wouldn't consider that reliable. Also, beyond a certain point CR really starts to break down as something that accurately represents difficulty.
And Lamashtu isn't invincible either: gods can still die in Golarion's setting.
And your post was pretty awesome Kevin. :)

I have also done this Kryz. Heck, there was one time all my characters were in bed for the night so I wrote out the morning posts for every one of them in advance XD.
I did respond to Sun with Midori but we can move on to the ceremony whenever you'd like. :)
It got all cloudy yesterday and looked like rain and I was like "Yes this should cool things down nicely."
Nope, was still just as hot, except it got all humid and gross.
Rain is supposed to be cool, not lukewarm. :(
New compy is lovely. First time I've had an SSD and by the gods is it nice!
Another thing that adds a layer of complexity to the whole destony issue where Avalon is concerned is the fact that we have divergent time lines.
Like, just as example, when I first conceived Darth Vai, the main difference I conceived between her time line and the primary time line was that Nasima didn't return in time for the demon invasion. Thus, Vai never met Nasima, and instead it was Jaiye and Ssrena that found Vai during her initial forced transformation, and blackmailed her into helping them. When Aegythrax came back for her, she wasn't close enough to anyone for them to notice she'd been replaced by a simulacrum, and so she was never rescued from Aegythrax's care.
But it all came down to the fact that Vai never met Nasima.
I'll put some posts out at work to get things going again, and more later today (new computer yay!)
Little bit of column A, little bit of column B. I already had plans to upgrade in the near future and the death of the old PC hastened those plans. XD
I'd forgotten how fun putting together a box can be.
Though, considering my house is like 30 degrees right now, I kinda felt like I needed one of those nurses with the cloth to remove sweat from your forehead.
I needed Wash.

Immune: Immunity to necromantic or death effects that require or target a living body. Soulmechs are subject to effects that target a living creature's spirit or soul, including energy drain.
Emphasis is mine. I think this means that even if she thought he was a soulmech, he'd still be subject to Energy Drain as a spell (I'm assuming it's not just talking about the energy drain that wights, etc have).
It's also kinda a desperation tactic at this point. Fei's kicking her ass. ;P
Crafting Vare's post now. :)

My brother and I have kinda a sacred agreement when it comes to 4X games. We play them alot together: Civ (1-5, Alpha CentauI, and Beyond Earth), Heroes of Might and Magic, the Total War series (Rome, Empire and Shogun), and now the Endless games.
See, we need to have a human opponent to make the game more interesting, so whenever we play we are always against each other, but we're always on voice chat when we play to, and we learn the game together. We figure out mechanics, little tricks to the game, whatever. We always share too, despite the fact that not sharing these insights would give us the edge.
And we do keep score, but it's nice to remind each other that even when we are ostensibly opponents, we still always have each other's back.
In Pathfinder, all firearms fall under the "Exotic Weapon Proficiency (firearms)" feat.
Of course, Paizo also included a guide for what tech level guns are at in the setting, though I think Agartha would still fall under the "Emerging Guns" section.
So, my fiancee gets super excited about playing D&D, but she often forgets the nitty-gritty details in her excitement to play. In our current game, she's playing a brawler whose personality is somewhat based on Kamina of Gurren Lagann, though considerably more of a womanizer. Regularly hitting on every female the group encounters, even antagonists bent on killing him. Anyway, 4 session into the game she has yet to use either her flurry or her ability to gain feats, so while we were discussing the game, I mention to her not to forget to use her class abilities in combat.
Her: "Oh yeah, but there doesn't seem like there's that many good feats at this level."
Me: "Well, there's always things like Stunning Fist."
Her: "Stunning Fist?! Oh man, that's like the chloroform of feats!"
*simultaneous facepalm and burst out laughing*
Hopefully you had a fantastic vacation and it was as relaxing as it was tiring. ;)
A paladin died?
That can happen?

The reason why this doesn't work is that (a-b) is a divide by zero. Any time you do a proof like this for division, you typically have to include the phrase "so long as the divisor != 0".
Source: I hate doing proofs.
(Interestingly, this could be considered a "Proof by contradiction" that you cannot divide by zero, since you allow division by zero, you get impossible results).
To further expound on what Lyn is saying: mathematics is a system developed by humans. People like to talk about math being the "universal" language and all that crap, but in reality, it works because math is a pre-ordained tautology generator. It follows rules that are defined logically by humans.
And, as Lyn pointed out, there's always a way to game the system.
Lyn also showcased why significant digits are important, for all you folks who hated that part of high school science.
A coffee bean eaten plain has roughly 30mg of caffeine. Compare to an espresso shot which has about 70-80mg. If a shot of espresso is analogous to a shot of spirits, then Lucas is probably a caffeine addict.
Well, unless the blight druid still has venom immunity. Caffeine is a naturally occurring poison, and despite the name of the ability, venom immunity protects against all poisons, not just venom.

Lang actually gave him something too, check his post history.
Sorry again for my absence. Getting distracted too easily and having too many projects is not a good plan.
In partial apology, I bring you my album of pictures from Iceland! There's lots of random people you won't care about in there (people from my EVE corporation), but I'm the guy with the epic chops and my SO is the girl with the blonde hair and the crazy eyes!
Here ya go: LINKY LINKY
My main problem is that casters don't need their damage potential nerfed. They already struggle or fall way behind martial characters in the DPR category, and Limited Magic does very little to hamper a utility/buffing setup (which is where casters truly shine), other than making DCs laughably easy.
Alright cool, I can work with it. Maybe I'm misremembering an old post on this. It has been like 3 years since we sorted this stuff out.
Kirin Style: Honestly beyond a certain point the CR system really starts becoming meaningless IMO. Great Wyrm blue is CR21, plus add in a couple for being a champion, minus a few for not having appropriate level treasure, add on a bunch for extra class levels and it all becomes a wash. I'd say CR30-ish which means Kirin style succeeds.
True, a cross-genre issue, but unfortunately this is a cross-genre game.
I merely point out that non-human creatures that exist can see into the infrared bands of light (including plenty of breeds of snakes, for example) and invisibility still works against them.
As you said, it's not super important, but in both a high-science and high-tech game I think there's merit to sorting those issues out just in case, given the highly mish-mash nature of our setting.
Also, sorry again for the slow posts. In exam time for me.
You could also consider, not specific to the motion detection ability (blindsight, imho), that Fei's utilizing some technological 'scry' which enables infra-red vision, 360 degree sight, but it requires partial attention /elsewhere/. I.e. the scrying portion.
Quick post while I'm in class:
The problem with infra-red vision is that invisibility magic would still work against it: infra-red is simply a different wavelength of light. Infra-red is just what we typically radiate as black-body radiation due to our temperature (this is why, for example, when things get hot enough they glow red, because their black-body radiation has slipped into the red end of the visible spectrum).
I'm not saying that sufficient tech couldn't detect the heat radiating off someone, but that infrared isn't a viable counter to invisibility!
While I am pretty exasperated by Lily's attitudes, FCD you are doing a magnificent job with her.
I'm really glad to hear this, seeing as how Lily is easily the character I struggle most with while writing. She's so the opposite of how and what I usually write, and I was worried I wasn't exactly nailing it.
So, thanks. :D
Just doing a quick character check:
Ardiente: With Raelle, posted
That should be everyone. Did I miss anyone/anything?
