In other words, the crazy - it's catching. ;P
Would fit right in. :)
I get lost in the PBP forum. What's Agartha?
Edit: and now I realize I really need to edit the world history to reflect the now slightly less isolated status of the world. Among other major in-game events that need to be included.
"I don't know about curing it yet, but for what I'm doing now..." she pulls out the infusion and hands it to him. "do you know the spell "marionette possession?"" She pulls out a potion of alter self, and waits for an answer. Flipping it between her fingers, back and fourth, really just a twitch type thing.
"Not really. I mostly deal in magic that goes boom."

"I look like a lady."
She waved at her reflection just to be sure it really was her. Yep, her fingers moved and there was Ehos with his arms wrapped around her waist...it had to be her. Ehos can feel her trembling as she is so completely overwhelmed by the transformation a dress can cause.
"Yup, true love." He says still smiling. "I remember in one, the guy told the girl that no matter what, they would always find each other, and they did. Across the land, other kingdoms, even in different worlds. In other, a prince was cursed to be a frog and when a girl kissed him, he transformed into a handsome price, and they got married."
"The first one sounds romantic....the second one is weird...since when do kisses undo a baleful polymorph? Sounds like a great scam on the part of the girl to get a handsome prince to marry her," she said skeptically.
Icehawk, sweetie, I think you're blowing things out of proportion here. Just take a deep breath and remember that you don't think straight when you're tired. That's a common problem. It's okay. Just chill and remember to stick with decaf in the future. :)
Edit: And seek medical attention if necessary. That bit about the nausea and blurry eyesight is worrisome. Hopefully it's just exhaustion. But I worry.

Jaiye laughed. "Yeah, I've noticed that humans are often a bit strange about anything related to breeding...which is weird when you consider that as far as I can tell they'll pretty much mate with anything...."
Tamina pulled out the paperback book that she had used to use to smack Ginni with when Ginni's soul hunger was getting out of hand before Ginni had been cured. She rolled it up and thwacked Ace upside the head...not hard enough to hurt him, but enough to sting.
"Ginni has been worrying herself sick about you all morning! Now stop being an idiot and explain things properly to your girlfriend first before you talk things over with everyone else."
"Sorry, Tyrrin. I didn't mean to be rude to you."
"But he was being an idiot."

Bradley blushed a little when she touched his cheek.
"Oh, it's not the trees' fault. this stuff just happens to me....I'm just happy that it didn't happen earlier when we were actually birds. That was an experience I'll never forget. Thank you," he said, simply.

You want to bring in Master Roshi?! ;P
Spug, I think I understand a little more where you're trying to go with this. As long as I'm not misunderstanding. Mostly trying to figure out what you mean by biomechanical. You want more than a biomechanical interface? I think? I looked up guyver (since it's one of those rare things, an anime I'm not familiar with :P) and I'm trying to understand because what I'm hearing is a lot of yes, it's the same, but it's completely different, which is confusing me.
A couple of things were said in the process that have me feeling extremely frustrated. I'm trying to figure out how to express myself adequately. Step one = calm down and not just speak from pure emotions. Still working on that one.
Spugs, that's essentially what the mechas are. Except not so much with the magic stuff. The magic stuff is why Jiminy wanted to study Dave's ship. To learn how to incorporate that into the existing designs.
This is why Jiminy and Johnny will likely never get along. They're frighteningly similar personalities. :)

And please, please, please.....the next time I have to take an afternoon off for RL.....don't have me come back to another round of whose character is supposedly overpowered. It makes me feel like I'm refereeing siblings on a road trip. "Mooooooom, she's not staying on her side of the car!' "She's breathing my air!" >.<
(This is an excerpt from an actual argument between my sisters on an actual road trip many, many years ago.)

"The gem dragons took a third side in the great conflict, that of the younger races, insisting that they be allowed to choose their own path. Crushing my ancestors was part of what finally brought the chromatic and metallic dragons to the point of armistice. They could at least agree that our opinions were dangerous. The amethyst were the most vocal...and so took the most damage. They destroyed our original homeworld, Ianthe. So my grandfather and several others banded together to build a secret world for themselves and their allies, far from the eyes of the Empire. I can only presume the other gem dragons did likewise since there is no record of either their continued existence in the empire or of their deaths. I have lived here on Agartha my whole life. I was the first hatchling born here on this world. And I, my daughter, and my grandchildren....we are the last of our kind."

::You told me you got kicked out of your pack... or something? Because you were competition? I remember you saying something about it in the library... but then I got distracted by kissing you.:: Ehos responds sheepishly. He knew this was important, but he just couldn't remember.He does tighten his arms around her though, to indicate he wanted to keep cuddling.
::That's pretty much it. I was driven out by the alpha female of my pack because the alpha male said I was beautiful. It was pretty obvious he meant to replace her. He never really liked her anyways. She was just too strong to ignore. I was a potential usurper of her place so she took care of the problem. That's the culture I come from. That's my instinct. That's how I view Anahita, whether I want to or not. It takes everything I have to keep that in check when I'm around her, and I'm not always successful. If...if you meet with her and try to keep it secret from me that only gets worse. I don't like her. I don't like you being around her.....but I don't own you. And I can't stop you from being friends with who you want. Just....don't hide it from me. ::

"Unlike you I don't bother with imparting 'wisdom', your eminence. I observe. What I have observed of you so far tells me that you don't really notice anyone other than yourself. Well....you almost noticed Bradley for a minute. And then you got bored with something that wasn't you. Just like I'm bored with you. Sadly, I have the sinking feeling we'll meet again. Until then, try to keep your wake of destruction to a minimum."
He changed into a five-tailed fox and sauntered away.

Sun found Ephebe in the classroom. "Oh, good. I have a lot of students to track down and I'm guessing that things went completely off the rails when I got called away. Can you point me in the direction of the most urgent crisis?"

Kryshyykilii'vkk slumped in his cage, tears rolling down his face, but when Lang approached the cage he shook the bars and roared with fury. There were no words in his cry, but images were conveyed through it anyways. Some images from before. The destruction of his children. The betrayal of those who were supposed to keep them safe. But now there was another image. A young girl in her teens, her school uniform dirty and torn, tears streaming down her face. It looks like a younger (though not by much) Professor Reading. The emotions of hurt, rage, and betrayal are coming as strongly from her as they are from Kryshyykilii'vkk.
Trying to convey the idea that this is a two-sided process. Healing happens for both or neither.
Bradley sat by the pond watching the ducks. Now that there was a lake not many people came to the pond anymore. It was peaceful. And he liked the ducks. He brought breadcrumbs to feed them and just sat and watched them swim. After he'd been healed he had fallen asleep, but it didn't last long before he woke up. No one suggested he even think about classes. Apparently dying, even if it was only for a minute, made a great excuse for skipping classes, although there was still time to change his mind about that if he wanted. It was still only lunchtime. But he didn't really feel compelled to go to class. He knew his teachers would just be relieved if he didn't show up. He'd gone to find Ana earlier after he was released from the infirmary, but she'd been flirting with that red-haired guy and he didn't want to interrupt. But he was a little sad that he wasn't able to tell the one person who wanted to be his friend about how excited he was. For the first time he could remember he'd actually done something right. He'd somehow managed to use his abiity to help other people. He felt...strange....maybe....proud? He might be proud of himself.....but he wasn't sure. It was such a new feeling.

Hey Lyn I went through the item creation maths and found that an amulet of endure elements at first level with one charge a day is 400 gp? If I mathed right. And more specifically an amulet of endure cold elements would probly be even less. Just making sure I both got this right and asking if I can get it before I head to town at the end of the day.
Why do you need....oh. Right. Um, sure, yeah go ahead. :)

And Raelle is a complete innocent in this regard. I don't think they've even kissed on the lips as of yet. So I doubt she'd be initiating anything...other than maybe a trip to the pottery kiln....she does have art next....;P

I'd take him, but the thought of taking one of your characters is quite daunting. ^-^;
I've barely played him! He's only been in like three scenes so far!
...okay he got to help blow up a warship in one of them, but that's it. :P
Fireclawdrake said that pretty much hit the nail on the head.
Monkeygod, let it go. I feel like you two are arguing just to argue. That's what pm is for. Or another thread than this. PCs were never going to be enthralled without the players consent. Period. And any time I've ever played with leadership or anything of that ilk in real life game the followers were NPCs so I'm kinda shocked anyone would expect otherwise. Regardless, it's a moot point in this situation. As I already said. Plans are already in motion and the situation is well in hand.
To once more quote Pirates of the Caribbean vis a vis rules : they're more like guidelines really. :)
