Hey, sorry all but I'm going to have to bail on the Runes game and Paizo in general for a while. I'll try to check into the campfire from time to time. Til then, good gaming and stay cool everyone.

Thanks Seth86. Might still stick with Copper.

Finalizing crunch today.

So the Chromatics work together? Or would it be possible to have a Draconic Bloodline other than Copper and still be fitting?

Sounds good Seth86. I should have the bulk of my crunch done tonight.

Cool! Ill start working on my Monk-MoMS/Sorcerer -Dragon Blooded.

He's headed for Dragon Disciple PRC

This looks like the perfect campaign for him.

Any deadline on ready status?

Still recruiting for this?

Male Pale Master

if anyone is interested they've added 191 new avatars. enjoy!

^ and there are plenty of people that enjoy both Roleplaying and the Roll playing. The rules are just as much part of the game as the being in character.

edit - agreeing with you Anon just adding.

^ Not sure but probably. Im thinking of making a Pastafarian themed email and hitting him up.

^ One of my aliases received the same exact message.

Welcome home Zyren! You've been missed.

My favorite is Riddles and I would like to return to that game. Havent really been up for making new characters lately.

Im interested. Im playing on the 'villains' team now in DM Ascensions games so would like to play the other side of the coin this time.

Algar - cool to see other players from those games.

DM-Kal if you're interested here's a link to Ascension Thieves Guild gameplay

Im leaning towards a sorceror/monk that serves Horus

Thats cool. Starting at first? Mostly interested in that tidbit for background & god ideas.


now to peruse the pantheon to see who deserves my devotion

any ideas on build guidelines?

Male Pale Master

Definitely. No glory hounds on that squad. Well played all around.

dotting for interest!...

Heh, a sports guy eh? Well since you haven't been introduced yet, again I was more poking the others (Cruxxcarr, Jethryk, and Shendalyn) for their opinion on our ambush site options.

Another post missed... my apologies

Im a fan of some sports. Mostly ice hockey but I especially like sports that are on the global stage. Like the World Cup and the Olympics.

Male Pale Master

Completely understandable on all counts.

We have a couple of players that dont do well in wars at all. But! they make an effort and I figured Elder status was a nice recognition for that effort. All of our members donate although some more than others which I guess is due to mostly to the differences in amount of activity between players.

I just had to kick a guy that has missed the last three wars. I even called him out directly in Chat and via Clan email and he never answered but he would come on the day after the War ended and request troops. Not fair to the others at all and frustrating to boot.

It would definitely be cool to have you guys but if you find another cozy home that is just as cool. Our door will always be open.

Anybody else given this game/app a look yet?

Male Pale Master

^ Vaughn - you guys are more than welcome to join us. Clan name is Empty Throne. I'll let the other elders/coleaders to be expecting 2 recruits.

FYI - we've set some clan rules. It will be easier to relay them here.
We do a Clan war every Friday-Sunday at about 10 AM EST.
Make both attacks in two wars and earn elder.
Don't make any attacks in 2 wars with no heads up (sick, vacation, etc)and get kicked.
We lost four straight wars due to non participants. But have won two in row since <thumbs up>
Hopefully that's cool. If not I understand also.

What's going on with your clan?

Male Pale Master

Yo campfire!

Still kicking it here. Missing our Riddles game. Its been 2 months since we posted anything. Anyone know how long before the games are considered inactive?

Male Pale Master

Nice plan. Glad to hear Im not the only one with long term goals.

Im 3 days from TH8, 5 days from lvl 2 dragons, 1 day from Hogs. Im almost completly upgraded except for air defenses, theyre at lvl 3 and my last mortar to lvl 5 is 3 days away. Had to start on lvl 2 Tesla just to spend gold since I keep topping out on gold at 3 mill. I really need a 5th builder so Im saving gems.

I'll probably upgrade barbs, giants, wallbreakers, wizards, dragons...hmm... I hardly ever use archers. Might have to check out that tactic.

No doubt Hama! Definite Crit in effect. He must've rolled one hell of a Fortitude Save to avoid being knocked out by the anvil face smash too.

Male Pale Master

Thanks DM VoV! Looks like I have a long read ahead of me. If I should just skip ahead to any point let me know.

^ It is played that way by some (unfortunately) but I see plenty of gamers doing both, rolling the dice and playing out the results. The game only needs to be as rule heavy as you want it. Thankfully there's plenty of games offering a 'theater of the mind' play style which requires lots of imagination.

Male Pale Master

^ no worries there Vaughn. Ive had a couple of 300K+ raids lately and am about maxed out gold wise with almost no way to spend it until my TH is upgraded...4 days left! Woot!

Sidenote - Tark and all - you guys still need a WotW Divine caster? My Unholy Barrister would love to hop into an active game.

Malak Jaedoom

At first the facial tics and body mannerisms of Jerry and Lester were too similar for me. The no spine having, bumbling salesman act had already been done. I'll definitely agree that Lester has completely changed and become quite the doppelganger.
Although now, Im disappointed that they have introduced another pregnant cop that will inevitably solve the case.

Are these just two variations of the same story?

This illustrates the combat as war mentality real well. The party shouldnt assume every encounter will be an apropriate challenge for them. Either you risk death by trying to even the odds, or you leave be and find someone your own size.

This +1. Our TT DM let us know long ago that we shouldn't expect to be able to slay every monster we come across. If we're dumb enough and not tough enough and we get killed then that's on us.

But I wouldn't play with a DM that had a house rule that stated 'Expect to Die, Horribly' either. That makes it seem like its player vs DM and a player will never win that war.

the buns were slightly green

Tales from the Underverse

The crowd stands

Cthulhundrew and DM Barcas:

There was a moment when they got on Xavier's private plan where Magneto reached for the paper and Logan extended his bone claws to stop him. Magneto said 'Imagine if those were covered in metal'

Totally plausible that they might rewrite to have Magneto be the one that laced Logan with adamantium.

Oops on the movie verse link but it did also happen in the comics just not in the Days of Future Past story line...

Prof. X. comic linky

"When the X-Men fight members of the extraterrestrial race known as the Brood, Xavier is captured by them, and implanted with a Brood egg, which places Xavier under the Brood's control. During this time, Xavier assembles a team of younger mutants called the New Mutants, secretly intended to be prime hosts for reproduction of the aliens. The X-Men discover this and return to free Xavier, but they are too late to prevent his body from being destroyed with a Brood Queen in its place; however, his soul remains intact. The X-Men and Starjammers subdue this monstrous creature containing Xavier's essence, but the only way to restore him is to clone a new body using tissue samples he donated to the Starjammers and transfer his consciousness into the clone body. This new body possesses functional legs, though the psychosomatic pain Xavier experienced after living so long as a paraplegic takes some time to subside. Subsequently, he even joins the X-Men in the field, but later decides not to continue this practice after realizing that his place is at the school, as the teacher of the New Mutants.[42][43][44][45]"

In Civilization Revolution I play against those pesky Americans and all of their great people and Industry all the time. A tough opponent indeed.

There is no rage over Xmen because in the comics Prof. X transfers his mind into a coma patient in Ireland and Magneto doesn't permanently lose his powers.


Not sure if serious....

Did I phrase that poorly?

Stiehl9s is saying the same thing only better I guess. The comics do this so people expect it. Most of the nerd rage over the XMen movies are over stuff they changed from the comics not stuff that is normal.

Errr, in which comic did that happen with Xavier? Because I kinda think it didn't.

I dont that exact comic either but this quote was taken from the Marvel wiki - Link

"However, to escape death, Xavier transferred his mind to the body of his brain-dead twin brother, P. Xavier, who was under the care of Dr. Moira MacTaggert at Muir Island."

I dont think its fair to compare artifacts to experimental medicinal cures.

and in comics the heroes die just as much as the villains. I have the issues where Kraven the Hunter killed off Spidey and there was no butt hurt amongst fans when Spidey crawled out of the grave 6 issues later after having just been given a strong sedative.


of course people in the movie derived that the cure was permanent. Because thats what other characters in the movie said. That doesnt make it fact. If it wasnt permanent it wouldnt be a big enough threat for mutants to even worry about. They and the audience were supposed to think that it was permanent. But it wasnt. Enough said. There was no proof in the movie that it was. Quite the contrary. The small scene at the end left no doubt (for most of us anyways) that it was in fact temporary. Rejoice in the fact that the movie was able to get you to buy into that reality for the duration of the film. Although Im not sure why you did. Ive been reading Xmen since the early 80's and didnt buy it for a second. Nothing is set in stone in the Marvel universe. Characters constantly are 'killed off' or lose their powers only to have both come back at a later date. Thats canon.

Im a tad over the hill and been gaming since the fifth grade.

Theres been lots of changes over the years and they've mostly been good as many have pointed out here already. Although I still curse those weapon charts from Rolemaster.

For me the biggest improvement has been the internet and in effect boards like this one where we can game with others all over the world without having to schedule certain days and times that will work with everyone's schedules...which is growing more difficult the older I get. Add to that that this medium almost enforces actual role playing and deep character development. Sure, we still get those that just post a skill check, attack roll or save without anything else but they are few and far between.

Ive been lucky to have found a few people to play with in RL that focus on Roleplay and some of our best times are when we fail but stay true to character. But here on the Paizo boards, Ive been more than impressed and inspired by the vast amounts of creative ideas for campaigns and characters. Glad to be a part of it.


1. the 'cure' was derived from a mutant who's powering deadening powers only worked while within a certain range from said mutant. Not once was it evident that the 'cure' was permanent. Was it perfectly acceptable to you that Xavier was using a 'cure' that denied him his powers in order to be able to walk? One that as soon as he quit administering it he got his powers back. Pretty much the same thing as to what Magneto went through.

2. Aranna summed up my views on this exactly. Elegant! That one little scene was enough for me to know that Magneto would be getting his powers back. Pretty simple really.

all in all it looks like haters are just going to hate

Dotting for interest... I have a druid that I could you have a deadline?

2d6 + 6 ⇒ (3, 6) + 6 = 15
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (6, 4) + 6 = 16

2d6 + 6 ⇒ (5, 1) + 6 = 12
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (4, 2) + 6 = 12
2d6 + 6 ⇒ (2, 6) + 6 = 14

Vaughn - Ive been in the same exaact boat! I even tanked my trophy count so Im down in Silver II and still getting crushed by level 70+

Saw the movie this weekend and though that it was one of, if not the best of the bunch barring First Class only. I have no issues with any 'supposed' continuity problems as this sort of thing is par for the course as far as the Xmen go...edit that...and Marvel comics in general.

Male Pale Master

I have an unholy barrister that's in a way too slow wotw game

Daniel, indeed.

when does recruitment close? I need to recrunch.

Male Pale Master

Riht on Vaughn. Im gunning for upgrading all of my defenses before shooting for TH8. I did score Dragons! and have all of my walls up to level 7 now. Steady grinding.

there is this option also along that path - Dueling Mastery

Male Pale Master

Ouch! I'm not even close to having the 10K needed to get him in the first place. I dumped my gems on a 4th builder...and I still cant get things done as fast as I want, lol.

Im interested! I have a guy that was in a pbp game here until recently but could play just about anything.

Sweet! Much appreciate the opportunity Captain. I'll start hammering out some crunchy bits and expand on background.
