Okay here's the plan: bust into the room and stick our pointy weapons into their vulnerable flesh. Also known as plan A for adventures.

For the record I wasn't assuming that the level drains were permanent, just expressing why everyone hates the undead.

ok thanks, cause I looked back in the recruitment thread and saw a 32 point buy somewhere.

I see you want a skills person... was thinking fetchling possibly a ninja.

wanted to go assassin but that pesky required evil alignment thing.

kill things and take their stuff and get rich = good
kill things and collect a bounty = good
kill stuff and get paid = evil?

the 32 was the 3.5 point buy, pathfinder is 20 I think, but they both basically work out the same.

We're also a pretty good party in general, though Pat has allowed some questionable folks in (looking at you Drazek Darkholme :P ), but I personally don't mind evil (light) so long as it's not evil (disruptive) or evil (anti social). Also commonly called CE. It's not my campaign though so I don't have the final say.

I think Rhiannon is a pretty solid tank, better AC, likely better HP then Karrin, so I think the only area we might be difficent at the moment is utility. We don't have a skill monkey at the moment. A bard would be ideal, they bring skills and limited healing, a straight up rogue would be cool as well.

I got no problems with more front line fighters, but as is we have Karrin, Rhiannon and Ekuur as our front and Merle, Justin and Nari to rain down pain from the back line. I think we're pretty balanced on offence, but that's just my opinion, and I'll bow to whatever everyone else thinks.

Sovereign Court

Male hu-man Paladin

Having another healer wouldn't hurt, Ekuur is no slouch but he doesn't have turn undead IIRC, and Rhiannon had some healing abilities I think but not really enough to be considered a secondary healer.

I got plenty down here on cape cod

One thing I like about Cape Breton is it is like cape cod was forty years ago. With mountains. And it's colder, but not terribly so. 3-4 weeks of colder weather. Plus I have a bazillion rekatives there. I am mostly Hebredeian Scot heritage, but some Arcadian French, English and (apocryphal) Micmac

I've never been to Cape Cod but I've heard good things about it. It's a bit of a touristy location though isn't it?

Either way I hope you don't have to move if you don't want to.

And hey, I don't think I'd mind moving to Cape Breton for a while.
Um, My wife wouldn't care for it much (Being born in Louisiana, she has an aversion to snow. It's fine when seen on vacation, but she doesn't want to have to deal with it when trying to get to work.) ;P

Well I hope things look up soon! We'll see you back here when your ready! :)

Hey is she Cajun? There's a lot of Acadians living in Nova Scotia and most Cajun/Acadians consider Nova Scotia their home land. It's a wonderful place for most of the year but the snow takes a bit of getting used to. Cape Breton usually gets a bit more snow then we on the mainland but for the last few years we haven't been getting a lot. We more then made up for it this year though.

No it's not good, but it is what it is. There's also an off chance I might be headed up to Cape Breton for a few years, so we might be province neighbours Guy (I'll have to work on my 'u' insertions and the metric system)

Well it is a Great part of the province if you don't mind snow, and the snow has been particularly bad this year, but they got lots of scenery.

Thanks Rags, Kessel is using is basic knowledge of the House to his advantage, if anyone doesn't get that last comment it's that they're rumored to be weresharks. Kessel might not be much use in a straight up fight but he makes up for it by being suave, dashing, and cunning.

I'm sorry for your loss as well. I was very close to my grandfather and was lucky to have many great memories. His passing brought my mother and aunt closer together then they had been in the past. Try to share your memories while your family is gathered as remembering is how we keep our loved ones alive.

Nuns Gone Bad: A Lurid Tale of a Lesbian Nun Sex Gang

I love lurid tales!

Nice find, but knowing what I know about human beings, I can't help but feel this was a smear job by a powerful noble to wipe out low born opposition in a nunnery. Most people think of nunneries as religious institutions but they were powerful business, and outside of noble marriage, one of the few institutions that gave the few women running the order wealth and power. I mean it's entirely possible that you had lesbian sex, I'm willing to bet that homosexuality in general wasn't uncommon in any of these religious orders, but I'd be willing to bet that someone involved benefited from this investigation.

Palestinians are fighting for their homes and existence. They have a right to do that.

Please don't misunderstand me, I am very sympathetic to the Palestinian struggle, however Hamas is not Palestine. They are just one group amongst many.

Why are you so sure that Hamas is a terrorist organization? They don't seem to be behaving any differently than the Israeli government and most people don't call the Israeli government a terrorist organization.

The things brought in through these tunnels is neither contraband nor done through smuggling. The tunnels themselves are not illegal.

The tunnels do not lead from Gaza to enemy territory. The lead from Gaza to Palestinian lands that were stolen from them at gunpoint and now occupied by Israelis.

Hamas is only a "terrorist organization" because that is what they are labeled by those who wish to vilify their efforts in defending their lands from occupiers who are stealing the lands at gunpoint.

No, I'm pretty sure Hamas is a terrorist organization, the question is would they exist if Israel hadn't been so aggressive in it's seizure of land and restrictive control of imports and exports?

Backwards: ISIS is Sunni. Iran and Iraq's president are Shia.

It's not even clear how much the Sunni Iraqis are behind ISIS and how much they're just not willing to stand up and get killed. There are definitely some former Baathist army types, but it may still be more of a foreign invasion than a civil war.
If the US helps with the "defeat/degrade the army that's actually taking territory" part, but doesn't get into the "try to root them out when they turn into an underground resistance movement" part, this might work out better than the alternative.

Brain fart, I knew the Shia were the ones that claimed that their leaders were direct decedents of Mohammad, and I also remembered Sadam (after the first golf war) "finding" religion and claiming that he was one of these direct decedents of Mohammad. Seems like an even odder claim now as it wouldn't have endeared him to the Sunni.

However while I'm sure there's a lot of foreign fighters I believe that there's at least one former Baathist at or near the head of the Iraqi wing of ISIS, and they're undoubtedly getting aide some someone in the area. Bombing ISIS isn't likely going to dislodge them from the region because they have at the very least some support. Bombing them is more likely going to send more to their side. Also keeping them from spreading might be near impossible at this point without a ground force and the Iraq army is not up to the task.

Best thing they can do at this point is get people to the negotiating table and draw new borders for three new countries.

Speaking of which, it will come as no surprise to anybody that I am against Obama's bombing of ISIS.

Iraq in Flames--Legacy of American Occupation

U.S. Imperialism--World's Biggest Terrorists!

It would be nice to get the Shias to accept a moderate government but these these people were violently oppressing their rivals twenty years ago, it's not surprising to see them getting behind this ISIS group that are murdering non-Shia Muslims. A lot of this does go back to the initial stages of the war where the Bath party were basically disbanded and forced out of any and all offices they held. Now that the US forces are gone you have genuine civil war.

However, do you let a group you basically created just starve a whole group of people on top of a mountain to death? I have a hard time disagreeing with Obama's choice this time.

It's certainly worse then arranged marriages in theory, I'm sure there are exceptions where everyone lives happily ever after, but yes, hard to imagine a healthy relationship growing from one started with such an imbalance of power. Course in the part of the world where this is the acceptable I'm sure it's mostly just done out of tradition rather then genuine abduction and rape. Hard to imagine everyone devaluing women enough were fathers wouldn't seek revenge against the tribe of the abductor.

However I just wanted to jump in here, I haven't read past the first page, but I noticed the OP said "three Jewish kids were kidnapped by Hamas operatives. Kids as in 16 years old"

I haven't been following this story that closely I'll admit, but to my understanding this was a bit of unconfirmed misinformation, the boys were indeed kidnapped and murdered, but I haven't heard it was done by anyone directly linked with Hamas. It's not something I'd say was beneath certain members of Hamas, but in the past they haven't been afraid to admit to something, and so I tend to think that they might not be linked. Certainly the right wing Israeli government likes to say that this was the work of Hamas, the story does play quiet well for them and their base, but as far as I know this is misinformation.

Go a few posts up from yours, I have a link showing the Israeli police admitting that it wasn't Hamas who kidnapped and killed the three teenagers (aged 16-19 btw), but a separate, independent group.

EDIT: Ahh, continued reading and saw that you had found the answer.

Again I can only apologize, I only just discovered the thread but had limited time. Lord Snow had a very fair account of what happened over the last few days but that little bit jumped out at me and I wondered if I'd missed some news story, or if Snow (being in Israel) might have been given some misinformation. I only had time to scan the first page but when I got back from work I got to read the previous page and that had what I wanted to know.

I really hate Hamas but the idiocy and monstrousness on both sides is sickening. What does Hamas think it's going to accomplish by launching rockets? How does Israel justify killing that many civilians? I'm just horrified by the whole thing.

Karrin picked up this little fact over four years ago and has kept it to herself ever since. You might remember back when Karrin met with Sebastian? Although you only have to go back two years ago to see where Karrin came close to revealing this secret to the group. It was just after Nari got her new body:

Karrin Kind wrote:

"Well my mother is a bloody scion of hell!" Karrin snaps, "A monster of unimaginable proportions!"

Karrin pauses, blinks, then quickly adds, "Probably. I mean for all I know she could be some lowly demon or something. Actually that's probably more likely. Sired by some unknown, unimportant demon somewhere, but forever tainted. No matter what your father was Nari at least you don't carry his taint everywhere you go. People didn't look at that old elven body of yours and think "she must be some sort of monster" or something. You at least had the option of disowning him, putting him in your past, but me, I got these horns, I got these teeth, and I got this ugly red skin. How can I forget one of my parents was a monster? I mean I can try every day, serve Rao every day, and I still got these horns on my head. Folks automatically think I'm evil. I mean I was lucky, I found a guy once that was able to look past these stupid fangs, see me for a good person, but you think that's ever going to happen again? I'm sorry for ranting here Nari, and I'm really sorry for the bad stuff that happened to you, but I don't to walk away from what I am ever. I'm just having a really hard time accepting this is all . . . "

Karrin does seem to be having trouble controlling the tone of her voice.
