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?

To be honest, I always imagined it very similar to Hogwarts: stone walls and floors, with sometimes impressive masonry work. Especially since the amethysts like to earth glide through the floors/walls all the time.
Hmm, I think you're right, but in that case, Fei used his champion teleport to enter the room, which means his aura should be active.
And sorry for noticing Dalesman. Trying to play her as shrewd, if somewhat unstable.
Alright, so a bit more explanation on that: the speed of light is constant no matter how fast you are going. Unlike other things, no matter your frame of reference, you will always measure the speed of light as the same.
Even if you're travelling .5c (50% of the speed of light), any light you measure will STILL be travelling at c, which according to newtonian physics means that said light would have to be travelling at 1.5c (for example).
Basically, time is what changes to make that possible.
And if your frame of reference IS light speed (you are travelling at c), other light you measure would STILL be travelling at c as well. For this to be possible, the factor that time plays would have to be zero.
Which means if you are travelling light speed, from your reference frame, time does not exists: everything happens instantaneously. You can travel infinite distance without having any time pass.
Of course, outside of your reference frame, time still passes normally.
The universe is frickin' weird.

6 degrees is frickin' tropical. :D
I did a watch-through of TNG about a year ago and I was seriously all like "This sounds suspiciously similar..."
Glad to know it was warranted. ^_^
My gaming group usually reserves the term "murder-hoboes" for Paladins. XD
Sometimes it's "Thought-police-murder-hobo" though, if the Paladin is one of those that thinks a Detect Evil spell is judge and jury, with them being the executioner.
It's probably a bad thing that I immediately picutred Ayn Rand as a Shantak.
Also, thanks to Lyn I wasted my entire morning reading Darths & Droids.
Links are dangerous Lyn!
I'm also probably going to end up reading Friendship is Dragons again too. Nice job! ;P
