Depends on the scenario level. Mid to higher levels starts seeing casters and many of them will have at least one AoE. Good-bye swarm.

Tell everyone to take off their boots. When dopplegangers shape shift they generally just shift into having their clothes on. If they can't take off their boots then they are a doppleganger. Kudos to any doppleganger that actually wears clothing.

Well, I was really hoping Tarquin would become one of the, what is it 3 or 4, different factions going for the gates that the Oracle talked about. I really kinda wanted to see a throwdown between Xykon and Tarquin. Where Tarquin tries to fight to see who is the main villian and Xykon keeps asking "Who is this guy?" Or as Tarquin is rushing head-long at Xykon screaming he is the main villian he gets disintigrated by Xykon and makes a comment that he looked like that one blonde guy from that one dungeon.

If your DM allows it I would suggest PrC into Grey Gaurd from Complete Scoundrel. The class is centered around having a more lax paladin code and using an ends justifies the means approach.

Also, if you're looking for a more wrathful pally, start worshiping the Empyreal Lord Ragathiel. Part of portfolio is wrath and vengence.

Looks like Roy might get his sword back too.

I keep thinking about those wands Haley picked up.

If this hasn't happened already.

Also, I find the the show reasserting the theme that, 'it's because of fire benders that we can't have nice things.'

So what was with Nick showing two episodes this week? I don't have cable and watch the episodes on the web. I know I didn't miss a week so I was confused. Anybody know why?

Furthermore, I'm glad they were able to get the previous avatar voice actors back. I really miss Roku's voice.

Theory on Varric:
I don't think Varric is working with Unalaq. I merely think he's an opportunistic, conniving, slimy, businessman. He's a little eccentric, but it could very well be a facade to throw people off.

She does have magical tattoos. Perhaps one is a permanent mage hand that lifts and separates.

So the Tenzin and family story gets bumped to the B story Line...apparently Aang was a sucky dad.

Of course he was - they continue to not understand that all benders are descended from the Avatar. This means it is the children of the Avatar that refresh the Bender power genome with each generation - and it means that when the Avatar doesn't have children - like with the Air benders who turned Air bender after Air bender into Monk they undermined the continuity of Airbenders.

So Avatar - the Spiritual/political leader is the incorrect belief system that undermines the future - and Avatar the Parent of the next generation perpetuates it.

The Air Nomads were doing just fine... until that slight problem of Fire Lord Azulon going on a genocidal campaign to wipe them all out.

Aang did not stint on his child siring duties. For a short lived Avatar,he had four kids, even if only one of them turned out to have Bending potential, his grandkids seem to be making up for it.

I dunno. We don't see air bending married couples in the series when the nomads were at their height. They seem to be the only benders who lack a traditional family matrix, although they seem to care for one another greatly.
Which was the problem...Air bending is not passing from parents to children. It is dead ending in the Monastic order of the Airbenders. This leads to less air benders being produced from those who are less likely to produce airbenders. It breeds a culture of genetic extinction.

I was always led to believe air benders breed with one another but raise children communally so not as to have attachment to them. It would explain why Aang never really talks about his parents and has Gyatso as a surrogate father figure.

It's not enough for the show to bring in raw numbers, it's got to bring in the right numbers for the targeted demographic which responds to advertiser dollars.
I'm not sure how it works on Nick, but on Cartoon Network if the toys aren't selling, the ratings don't matter. The show will get axed.

Hence why Young Justice got cut. But that was Mattel pulling it's funding. It was also expensive because they, CN, were using out of house voice actors and thus weren't on standard contract salaries.

As to some of the above statements, I liked the pro bending stuff. I felt it complimented the over-all theme of Korra. She's a very physical person and thus the show focused on a very physical aspect of the series. We didn't get much of the mystical/spiritual because it wasn't a strong suit of Korra's. This is even said by multiple times throughout the series. Thus why we're getting a very spiritual focused second season.

Also, I was really disappointed by the season finale. My theory was that Amon was Azula's kid or maybe Ozai managed to have another child secretly. It was a long shot but it would have been cooler I think.

I ran into a similar problem, except I was on the other end. I have a paladin of Ragathiel, who is fervently about wrath and punishment. I was playing The Hydra's Fang Incident. I had just dropped the main boss and his two flunkies surrendered. I asked them if they had committed the crimes they'd been accused of and they admitted their guilt. I told them to assume the position, asked if they had any money/possessions/messages to send to relatives. I said a quiet blessing to Ragathiel and give them quick, clean, and merciful executions. The GM was fine with this but one of the other players was mildly shocked and said, 'but you're a paladin!' I countered with 'yes, but Ragathiel has very clear strictures about evil doers and swift vengeful justice.' I and my character felt they were perfectly in line with LG and Ragatheil tenets of faith.

Hankie of Sunlight
When shaken this small piece of cloth emits a bright flash of light for up to 5 rounds equivalent to the light spell per day. Once expended it needs to be placed in direct sunlight for 1 minute per round equal to the amount of rounds used. If the hankie is held in the hand of a truly happy person while charging the light spell effect is replaced by a daylight spell effect instead.

Just because there's only 3 mythic demons in MA doesn't mean we won't see more than that in WotR. They tend to make a number of custom monsters for APs. I don't know why they'd stop now. Also, I can't wait to see Deskari's stat block and the crazy mythic abilities he'll have.

This is awesome! Although, I do see one hitch is when the kids take over as GM they may have some problems getting over the Me versus Them aspect and winning. I think you're going to need to really stress this to the kids and although a game, being a GM is more about helping others have fun, and not winning. I know far too many adults who have this problem.

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet or not, but Imps have Invisibility as spell-like ability, AT WILL. Have the Oracle stage an instance where the player pretends to banish the Imp and the imp feigns banishment and goes invisible. Then have the Oracle and the Fighter make amends. The imp stays invisible and quiet and stays around to learn to be good and the fighter thinks it's gone.

Well said, Mark Hoover

Also just a reminder that I will be flying by promptly at 2 o'clock to pick up both you and Timbles for our weekly meeting to drink six thousand dollar scotch and then spit it upon Timbles for basically no reason

Excellent! I'll meet you both there. We might be a little late though because Woodhouse FORGOT TO CHANGE THE OIL IN THE CAR! So I'm making him take me by rickshaw. I'll be sure to bring the bowls full of cobwebs and we can make Timbles and Woodhouse eat them.

Putting a layer of Sovereign Glue between the cross brace of his sword and scabbard or in his helmet.

Placing a stone of alarm in his room at the tavern.

Replacing his armor with an exact replica only one or two sizes two small. This is really only a flavor thing but still reall funny.

Obtaining a hand of the mage and knocking drinks on him as a barmaid goes by in the tavern.

Filling his boots with cold porridge, just enough to make it annoying, but not enough it will be seen when he puts them on in the morning.

And then there's the long con if you want to go for it, setting him up to ultimately fall and to have him loose his paladin powers. I strongly recommend against this one. But should make for a nice long revenge con.

53) No natural evolution/adaptation of a species. Orcs have been on the surface for hundreds of years and yet they still have light sensitivity.

FIREFLY bombed. Neo-BATTLESTAR GALACTICA sort-of bombed, but was held up by good wishes and healthy DVD sales. CAPRICA then bombed (but wasn't gritty space opera anyway). STARGATE UNIVERSE bombed as well.

The last successful 'gritty' space operas we had were STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE (which has been over for 13 years) and BABYLON 5 (which has been over for 14 years). And arguably neither were consistently 'gritty' in the same way that Neo-BSG was.

There is hope, though. Bear McCreary - the BSG composer - revealed literally yesterday that he's just completed the soundtrack to the new BSG pilot, BLOOD AND CHROME, so SyFy are now free to show that whenever they want (this summer or September are possible, apparently). Given that series takes place right in the middle of the First Cylon War with multiple pile-ups between battlestars and basestars and tons of Vipers, it should have lots of potential to be gritty.

Firefly bombed because of the shenanigans that Fox pulled. Had they kept it at a consistent time slot and advertised it more it would have done a lot better.

Those big purchase items fighters and monks always want are really tough to get into an adventure budget. Do you have any suggestions for other items which might appeal to martial type characters similar to the way a partly charged wand appeals to a caster?

Oils of bless weapon or other single use items at higher caster levels would be nice.

Also, I agree with this. More often than not I don't really look at the gear on the chronicle. I think one of the most interesting pieces of gear on one that I've seen was the Intelligent Ring of the Weary Sky from The Heresy of Man part 3.

I think that a way for people to get more excited about generic* magic items on a chronicle would be if they were at a discounted price.

*And by generic I mean items that we can/should be able to buy due to current fame level.

Summons 1d4+1 5th Level Dwarven Experts to build any non-magical building, siege engine, weapons, or armor upon request. The time taken to build the requested item(s) is 2d4+1 days. Upon immediate completion of the task the dwarves request 10 kegs of the finest ale in the land. If not received in 1d4 hour(s) the dwarves fly into a destructive fury and destroy whatever they built and vanish. One only building or siege engine may be built upon each request. Each dwarf can smith 5 weapons of simple or martial quality or 4 pieces of light armor 2 pieces of medium armor or 1 piece of heavy armor; each of masterwork quality and only of materials currently on hand. The ability can only be used once per week.

Wow, an iconic backstory that isn't riddled with a haunting secret or something massively depressing. I like. Very refreshing and bright. Great job, Crystal!

As an addendum, I'm not saying I didn't like the other iconic's backstories. Most of them just seemed to be full of some sort of major tragedy that drove them. Kinda got depressing.
