Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

No worries, Kryz. I'm sick and cranky. Stupid cold. I must have missed the humor due to that. :)

This school seems to have a lot of philosophy teachers...

?

There's one philosophy teacher and one psychology teacher and one conjuration teacher and there is some overlap between the lessons from philosophy and psychology and some overlap between philosophy and conjuration, but not much really and the parts of the material they focus on are very different. So really not sure what prompted this remark unless there is another philosophy teacher roaming about I don't remember...

Lyn, I have some questions on this rift thing..I can PM you if you have some time.

MG...I sent you a PM a while back...not sure if you had a chance to read it.

Go ahead and send me your questions then. I can't promise I will get back to you tonight, but within the next couple of days for sure.

Not an x-man. :P

Yeah, Asch is still the champion of darkness. You would have heard from me if I wanted to do anything to change that. Although the champion storyline has taken some dark turns of late and is only going to get worse....bwah hah...*cough cough* ...er, sorry about that, as I was saying....:)

Hello mortals just saying hey from....somewhere not sure where....Not that I am returning sice this game has become something much more than it was when we were a part. But anyway *poofs back to where ever he was before this mystery broadcast went ou through the school*

Hi, good to see you. :)

Asch and Amada are currently out in the Empire trying to help rescue Resistance operatives. You're welcome to make a cameo appearance whenever you like, but I understand that it can be hard to keep up.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Why yes, we do have kind of an x-men theme going on....*points out game description*

I mean, it wasn't like it was built into the game or anything....</sarcasm> ;P

There are a lot of inspirations from x-men in the game. Sometimes powers, sometimes personality. Nala is partially inspired by Emma Frost for instance. And Ignace will someday be able to do Sunspot style plasma blasts. Not anytime soon though. Sadie has that style of powers, but if there is an x-man who does forcefields I don't remember their name. The idea is that what we have are tributes, not rip offs. And we will undoubtedly have more in the future. Cause we all like playing awesome superheroes. :)

Just remembered.

I added my champion abilities to my profile from memory.

Could you check and make sure it's all there and correct, Lyn?

I tried finding the pm with it, but 5000 or so messages with vague titles aren't easy to comb through...

For some reason I thought you'd replaced the bubbles with something else...pretty sure it was fairly recent change.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Well, glad someone noticed that Asha was freezing to death. :)

Phew. Broke 400lbs for deadlifting at the gym today. So tired. Will try to get posts up when I get home.

Good job. And I'm guessing that makes you the guy that all your friends call when they need someone to help them move. ;P

I am sorry to hear this.. please take care of yourself...

remember..if I win the lottery some day I'll treat you to a nice vacation.

Aww. That's sweet. :)

Doing better today. Still a busy day, but not so much social interaction as Monday. I hate three day weekends. I so desperately need everybody to go back to work/school on Monday so I can have some alone time to recharge. #IntrovertProblems. :P


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Apologies for my silence yesterday. Technical difficulties made posting impossible. It literally took me two and a half hours to send two PMs because my iPad kept freezing. For some reason it suddenly decided to stop playing nice with my Bluetooth keyboard and then just wouldn't do anything at all. :/
Hopefully things will go more smoothly today....

This is the first break I've had all day...and I'm practically falling asleep in my ice cream. So I think posts from me will have to wait until tomorrow when I'm more rested.

I believe this got lost in the shuffle,

Also, Lyn,

I know you're not keen on Book of Nine Swords, but what about Dreamscarred Press' Path of War? Or is it all maneuver based classes period, that aren't allowed?

I would have to read it to be sure. In general my issues with Bo9S is that using stuff from it is a bit like trying to play Battleship with Monopoly figures. I haven't read Path of War at all so I don't know if it has the same issues.

Just some musing:

Are Avatar spirits Fey or Outsiders? Would there be a special distinction for extremely powerful ones, such as the Face-Stealer, Raava, and Vaatu?

They're more like minor gods. Kami, if you will. See Ori Reading's storyline for examples of the kind of power involved since she's bound to one. There are also plenty of spirits less powerful than him as well. But they are their own thing, definitely not fey and not outsiders either.

BBC Radio 4 did a broadcast of it over the holidays which is why it was at the forefront of my mind. Not sure if it's still available for listening for free. It will be available to buy in the near future, I think. It was a good adaptation.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

You're looking in the right direction at least, but no, not Discworld. :)

Agnes Nutter is from Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

Time confusion regarding Team Hot Guys: Dami, the thing about them coming back to Avalon mere moments after they left means that the team is still at the end of second hour and the rest of the school is now at lunchtime. Was that what you intended or did I read your post wrong?


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Well, when you can just use druid magic to get awesome crops, who needs to add chemicals and stuff? So I'm guessing that yes, the food is mostly organic. And mostly shipped in. Occasionally processed via nanite, but not that often. It's an inefficient use of energy.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Yeppers. FCD found as much description of it as I ever wrote in those like two posts there, but it's a perfectly legit location on Agartha. I just never put it in campaign info because it never got used before this.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Ah. That's why I forgot. Lemnos never actually made it into any stories. I forgot I made that place. Huh. Should probably add it to the campaign info.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

The only named city that I remember that would fit that description even a little bit is Nishioki (Kitty's hometown).
Or I can make up a new one if you'd prefer a non-Asian version.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Trying to catch up on posts and PMs from yesterday. This may take a while. Just know that I'm working on it. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I had had a school club proposed that would be a way of organizing the various quest type things. Basically an X-men style group heading out to tackle the problems that either pop up around the area or requests for help to Avalon on the grounds that if a problem is big enough, you have to ask the monsters for help. (Most of the planet views Avalon as a convenient way of corraling the monsters away from everyone else. Just because you call them students doesn't make them normal.) I forget who was supposed to be taking point on that one. I know I approved it, but then it sorta slipped away from my attention.
Jiminy's group will be expanding soon as he recruits more pilots and support staff, but they're more intended to be a Planetary Defence team. They do some occasional day saving on Agartha as well, but mostly they are focused on threats that come from space. So there may be some overlap between the groups, but they have different missions.

And you're right re:Jeran and killing children: Hell to the no! His big backstory trauma as revealed during the last book retrieving mission centers on not being able to save his little brother from being murdered by his uncle. Definitely counter to his morality.

As far as an Uncanny X-force style team, *shrug* if it develops out of the club then fine. There are certainly a number of semi-reformed (kinda, mostly, at least they can put on a good show in public) bad guys among the students and staff. (Miss Jones, Ephebe, Nala, Jaiye....and those are just my characters, there are plenty more played by others). But I wouldn't set out to build such a team deliberately.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

It's basically the Avalon University pilot program, a sort of fact finding group that's intended to test the viability of establishing a branch school for older students in Mentor. At least that was how it was pitched to me. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Heh. Wish I could blame pizza. I can gain weight on carrots and tofu. Heck, I gained weight on Weight Watchers. (And that's when I gave up on diets) >.<
But I did lose forty pounds last year. Bread was always my biggest weakness, so that wheat allergy had one positive effect at least. :)

There was one morning after band camp that I actually had to take one of my costume/ decorative canes around the house for about half an hour.

Really wish I had time to go to the gym.
I weigh much more than I would like. :/

I know that feel. I worked out near obsessively when I was your age so I could keep up with all the dancing and crap from musical theater. And even then I always weighed more than I would have liked. Unfortunately fo me I have the natural build of a hobbit. :/

But at least I can be a healthier hobbit. :P

Team Hot Guys

Plane of Heaven

Glancing at one another, the Keeper says, "Follow through with act and intent. If you desire matches your methods, and what you say, I believe you will learn quickly the rules-- or be Appointed."

The Herald adds, "We wish to end conflict, but at anytime, could have done as you seek to do, yet... Are not playing any game. Especially not with innocents."

They continue to casually stand there while nearly effortlessly,

Just noticed typing after getting home from an 12 hour day results in posts lacking closure to them!

Effectively, the Angels seem to be indicating that they won't stop someone from seizing/claiming her. They do not show possession or 'care' for her, only having affected the girl when she was quasi-unconscious, as it were. Kinda like if they'd found an object they felt or knew belonged to someone else. Waiting for the owner to claim it.

Been trying to convey that. Guess I get too subtle sometime... Though, I can suspect Jeran's attempting to make it her choice given the last post. True or no?

Yep, that's it exactly. He is really big on that whole free will thing, on account of having had it taken away from him in the past.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Doomkitten, best of luck with the game and I hope it goes/went well.

The first time I GMd in real life I had panic attacks for like two days before. My players told me they couldn't even tell while I was running the game. Chances are your players will be easier on you than you are. :)

I'm totally with you on this. I started tegularily going to the gym back in September and damn it sucked for the first while. It does get better though.

I'm down about 10kg since then :)

Stick with it Lyn!

Good for you and glad that it's working well for you with the whole gym thing. :)

I keep telling myself it will stop hurting so damn bad in a couple weeks. In the meantime I keep up the zombie shuffle which is all my sore legs can handle. :P

At least I get a couple days off over the weekend. Hopefully that will let my muscles heal enough that I'm ready to get back to it on Monday.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Reminder: Please, for the love of whatever you find holy, do not use dice= in your posts! It creates a complete mess of any post that uses reply to your original post (a necessity in a game where multiple storylines are happening simultaneously) and sorting that out in the edits is a bear. Be kind to your fellow players and don't, thank you.

My figuring was that Sam was ripped free of his flesh through some means, but since he doesn't die (and doesn't gain an immunity to demonic possesion), the skeleton just kept going - it's still his skeleton/body.

I wonder if we cut Tryko'Sam in two, if we'd end up with two of him.

I wonder if this is why Tryko'Sam hates labs.

Heh. And I was going to ask if the discarded bits were going to grow into another Tryko'Sam. :)

More posts later. Have things to do, but will have more time this afternoon during kidlet's karate lesson.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Will work on catching up with the Evocation class posts shortly. Aside from that I think that those not involved with saving the universe or rescuing damsels/dudes in distress are about ready to move on to lunchtime. And even if they're not, we could all use the forward momentum at this point. :)

Is there anything I can do?

Well, there's not really anything happening for the class Fi is subbing for right now, so we can probably fast forward them a bit to gym time. Or we can send the kids to lunch and Advaran can be one of the lunchroom supervisors.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Sorry for all the blue text in that post, Dami, but since Jeran is using his nonstandard abilities I had to explain things. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I kind of feel like I should apologize for my last weird rambly post....this is why I don't usually post at 3 am. :P
Anyhoo, I'm back. My new years resolutions are kicking my butt, but I'm back. :)
I hope all of you had a good holiday. Getting back to the routine feels weird now. Not bad weird. Just weird.
New posts incoming soon.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Hey, all. Happy New Year. :)
I apologize for my absence, but holiday family obligations have abounded. Also we bought a new car and holy hell is that a time sucking process! But now I no longer have to drive the slip and slide (my nickname for my old Corolla...it had problems with traction). :D
I had a good Christmas. I got a sewing box, a fountain pen, a locket from my son, and Amazon gift cards that I promptly spent on books. Because of course. The kidlet was thrilled to pieces because we got him a one year Xbox live membership and all twelve books of the Rangers apprentice series. Because being a bookworm is hereditary. ;P
And I've survived day one of the new diet. Not for weight loss. It's an extremely restrictive elimination diet to test if certain foods are contributing to my vertigo problems. But I managed to find some New Years treats that didn't violate my diet. Crispy duck, which I made into tacos with cucumber on corn tortillas. Surprisingly tasty. And I made zenzai. I'm a sucker for anything made with azuki. Bonus points since it includes mochi. :)
The next few days are likely to be busy busy as well. This always happens when the kidlet has a break from school. Even more so when my husband has time off too. Add in that he'll be out of town for most of January and you can see why all of the things have to be crammed into this week. So. Many. Errands. >.<
Anyhow, I really should be sleeping now, so I should just go do that. I will post to the game thread as soon as I can, but not sure when that will be as I am not so good with the posting when I'm half asleep and finding time when I'm awake is challenging befor Monday. Let me put it this way, I now have to send my family New Years cards because Christmas cards didn't happen. That's how badly I got buried by the to do lists this season. And I think my dad might be showing up this weekend. Crap. I forgot about that and didn't schedule for it. Argh! *facepalm*

Haven't caught up on game thread yet. On the subject of alignment, I've stated many times that we play fast and loose with the alignment system in this game as it can definitely become a character growth straight jacket all too easily. So, most characters don't even have an assigned alignment in the first place. If I have to sum up the average for say Jeran for purposes of a detect spell I would probably say neutral good, but it's an approximation. The only time alignment does come into play really is for extra planar effects. So I'm guessing that means that Settro is having a rough day? Guess I'll know for sure in a couple of minutes once I read the game thread.

So am I going to get any response to my actions, Jess?

Okay, GM is confused....what actions? Vis is in class and I can't seem to find the context for his last post. This is why quoting is important, especially when it's been a while since the last post in a scene.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I may be trying a little too hard to be cheerful now. My crazy aunt exercised her usual lack of tact in her Christmas letter this year. She sent me old letters from my mom. Glad to have them, but the timing couldn't be worse. And I was even managing to not be an emotional mess this year. :/


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

The natural Agarthan reaction to having to choose between two sides: you're both wrong! ;)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

It's all about getting people to make connections for themselves. Not easy, but really the only thing that works. I had a head start on the whole tutoring thing because I have two younger siblings, so I was used to having to teach stuff. At one point I somehow ended up responsible for keeping the entire football team off of academic probation...still not sure how that happened. They were the worst. They just expected to be handed the answers like everybody else just did things for them. Probably exactly how it worked. But dang it, they all learned basic geometry for themselves because I am kinda like Hermione when it comes to that stuff. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Yeah, I've never heard of any such thing either. I always had to take all my exams. :)
Of course they weren't worth half of the grade either. They were usually pretty minor. Or they seemed minor to me I guess. I dunno. I know I always had so much to do near finals though because of all the tutoring. That was usually when the people I was helping finally got it through their heads that I meant it when I said I would teach them what they needed to know, but I wouldn't let them copy off my papers. :P
Edit: also didn't have a senior project. They did institute mandatory community service during senior year (cause we weren't all overscheduled enough as it was apparently) the year after I left. So glad I missed that one.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Have fun, Doomkitten. And don't worry about missing too much. I think it's likely that we will maintain a slow pace until after the holidays because people get drawn away for family obligations so much. :)

And good luck to those still struggling through exam season.
