Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Well put, Ice. I couldn't have said it better myself.

Good summary of Ephebe's state of mind, MG. The only thing you missed was that she was raised by a demon and doesn't really have the framework for how to deal with this stuff compassionately. She usually fakes it by trying to act how Tamrin or Aananda would in a particular situation. But with all that stress she's starting to revert a bit.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Agh. That last Ephebe post was a nightmare. Safari froze three separate times and I lost the whole thing and had to start over. >.<


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Just a note, it's okay if Mel is totally overwhelmed and freaks out. Ephebe has been in life and death end of the world situations so long, she kinda has zero sense of perspective about it anymore.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Ice, chill. We've been over this time stuff before. Kronos may be at all points in time at once, but Ephebe isn't. From Kronos's point of view the problem is already solved because she solved it. Because if she didn't solve it she wouldn't still exist and he would have done something to solve it to prevent that. Since he didn't, it's fine, she's got this.

Also, Kronos has a lot on his plate. There's more going on than is immediately apparent.

Those who look at you are reluctant to harm you.

It doesn't help with saves from effects originating from mindless things.
My every ability is listed in my profile, because I try and be fully transparent with characters who are likely to be considered powerful.

Care to link the source of the class and abilities, per my prior request, please?

Why do you not include quotes, curiously? Forgot if you mentioned why.

You can read about godlings here. Helpful hint: if the info about a class isn't typed in or linked you can almost always find it by searching d20pfsrd.com. Unless it's one of mine that isn't filled out because I'm totally making this stuff up by the seat of my pants as I go. :)

Sorry about that, Ice. I forgot to put that up last night and then I forgot that I forgot...ADHD can be fun like that sometimes.

Ex no save no descriptor ability. Only being mindless makes you immune, as stared by the ability.

As for fcd's comment, true, but he /is/ a demon of lust.

I can only imagine what all the poor NPCs in the school are undergoing due to your (Ex) ability without a save... being teenagers and all, and pre-developed youths.

:)

But then again -- all it does is confer a bonus of some sort, right?

I don't recall the exacts, memorizing people's abilities isn't a hobby of mine.

IIRC he's talking about legendary beauty which makes it difficult for people to attack him because he's so gosh darn pretty. Which is why I made the connection to artwork for Jeran's reaction. I am remembering the ability correctly?

Not really much I can say or do, as usual.

Vis is waiting on a response, and I don't think anyone else is in a scene right now.

I thought I posted the response to Vis. Either my memory is faulty or my post got eated. :(

Have to go read bedtime stories to kidlet now, but I will make sure that post gets up later tonight.

I got one. Halloween costumes for women.

I'm curious as to why everyone's acting like this is a remarkable thing.

Though, I am rather surprised you never commented on Settro.

I think it's mostly that keeping a secret when it's a long running character is unusual. Jeran has been in the game from the beginning so that makes it more surprising.

From Jeran's point of view Settro is beautiful like a work of art not like someone to have a crush on. It would be like having a crush on Michelangelo's David. And the lack of reaction post is because I haven't given much of Jeran's inner thoughts up to now. That was how I kept his secret so long.

I didn't either FCD,

However, I like that he seems to "only" like cute guys in trouble or in need of rescuing.

In many ways he is the stereotypical hero type...he just prefers dudes to damsels. :)

And I'm a little surprised that more people didn't pick up on Jeran's orientation earlier. A couple people guessed as soon as I mentioned that I had a character who was still in the closet. The scene where he had a total non reaction to carrying a mostly naked attractive girl to the infirmary was a dead giveaway apparently.
I think the fact that more people didn't spot it is kind of a product of writing what you know. I come from a very conservative religious background, and this meant I spent a lot of years in the closet. Like postmark in Narnia kind of in the closet. I know exactly what it's like trying to pass as straight when you're not. The wondering what's wrong with you, the desperate wish for someone, anyone to catch you in all the little lies so you can stop being scared of being caught, the constant fear of rejection....and so on... So I used all of that when I was writing for Jeran. And now you know why he has such a hard time making connections with other people.

I must say I'm amused by jerran's reaction to goo boy (as Dave thinks of him)

I'm trying to decide if Dave should notice...

It would be a pretty high sense motive. He's good at hiding his real feelings. I mean, he even outright lied to Mithros (albeit with a grain of truth hidden in there) because he was too scared that he might lose one of his only friends if he told him the truth. But Dave has seen Jeran's gruff act before, and that same I'm not looking at you right now reaction towards Oneiro, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that he could pick up on it. :)

The Book of Life was so freaking good!

You have to see it. Especially you, Lyn. :)

I was kinda planning to wait on video for this one...

Which is surprising considering that it seems like it should really be my cup of tea. But for whatever reason the preview just didn't grab me. I was kinda thinking about seeing Dracula Untold even though it will probably suck. The kidlet and I share a love of monster movies. But he'd never go for it if I suggested going to see The Book of Life. I would get the inevitable comparison to one of my favorite movies, The Corpse Bride. He's not sure what's grosser about that, the dead part or the mushy romantic part. :)

For me I had to get to a point where I could let go of the anger. It wasn't hurting anyone but me. Part of that was learning that forgiveness doesn't mean you have to trust that person or put yourself in a position where you have to be vulnerable to them again. It's not about taking down boundaries that are there for a very good reason. its just about letting go of the anger because life is too short to waste obsessing about other people's actions and too long to spend being bitter towards everyone who has ever hurt me. They don't define me unless I let them and I've got better things to focus on.
Now I am a champion grudge holder, so don't think that's an easy attitude for me to maintain. Every day I have to make an effort to just let go of the past and stay focused on now. But it's worth it for the peace of mind it brings. And there are so many other things I need that emotional energy for. :)
Some days I'm better at it than others....

Keme has a rather antagonistic relationship with Fei. It may color his perceptions. Doesn't exactly help that Nasima had a crush on Fei. And then Fei lecturing him when he was trying to ask for help...somehow I don't think those two are gonna become best buds anytime soon, :P

They certainly did, but those two did take some first steps to reconcile that antagonism after Keme's resurrection (and before my 'hiatus' from the Boards).

I know it's been over a year since this stuff got posted, but it's only been a couple of days in game time. if I may humbly submit:

** spoiler omitted **

Not being a jerk to Fei because he doesn't have to be anymore and actually thinking well of the guy are two different things...but he'll keep the snide comments to himself when Vai is around and conscious. :)

Besides, Making snide comments about Fei is such a hard habit to break... especially if you happen to be a very young fox without a lot of maturity....

Is Kevin currently in goo dragon form or cute guy form?

Because human children do not spend some time watching the water flush in water closet, nor do they play with it...

I've heard of children who do that, but the only ones I ever took care of were terrified of the toilet and the noise it made. My younger sisters, the kids I used to babysit, my son...all scared of the toilet.

My apologies for lack of posts today. I had a migraine. I managed to get some PMs answered before I lost the ability to focus my eyes enough to read. But then I was pretty much just not able to handle bright light. I'm gonna give it a go again now, but on the off chance I just don't have it in me, Jacob and Settro please pause and wait for reactions. There are other people in that scene. Kim is freaking out and glowing and Fi is definitely going to have something to say about trying an impromptu exorcism in her classroom.


One of these days I need to catch up with my deviant art account again. Maybe even try putting up some artwork again...,of course that means sorting out the scanner first and it was hard enough getting the bloody machine to just print things and copy things. Scanning is a whole other barrel of monkeys, because apparently the idea of having an understandable user interface never actually occurred to the designers of this machine....which is really a shame since if you can manage to get the stars to align just right so you can use it the scanner is quit good quality and much much better than the one on my POS inkjet printer.

Yeah, it seems to be an us or them kind of thing. I used to get really upset about this whole idea of having to pick a team as it were and spent a lot of time driving myself a little bit nuts trying to figure it out. And then I decided that I belong to team I'm not playing this game and nobody gets to tell me that what I know to be true about myself is wrong. That way lies madness.
Honestly like most things that involve one human being picking on another, it's about someone feeling insecure about something.

Is the history of the Empire/dragons/etc more or less as is in Dragonstar for this game?

In other words, could I read up on the history of all that stuff in the DS books, or are there too many differences in our version?

We've added a lot of home brew stuff. I would say the books at this point would constitute the sanitized official version according to the Empire. So like maybe half the story.

Kim: this is literally it. You haven't missed anything else. Settro teleported into Kim's classroom and said there was a demon, and Jacob said it was probably him.

People present include Kim, Jacob, Vriska, Pyra, Dara, and possibly Phaedra and Ignace.

Nice summary of the situation. Phaedra and Ignace are there as are Vis and Chara and Gareth.

Indeed... But is there only one elementary class?

The whole field trip thing has confused me there.

There are two elementary classes, soon to be three. However the elementary PCs that are not Ryo's kids are all in one class. Half of that class is on the field trip and half is still at school where Fieri is subbing for their class since Ephebe is the field trip chaperone.

It doesn't feel like I do. I just kinda sit around, waiting for someone to interact with me. I try too hard to stick to what my charecters would actually be doing, and wind up with inactive charecters as a result.

First of all, I do think that you contribute to the game. If you are concerned about your characters being too reactive, I would advise you to think not just about what your characters would do in response top stuff, but what is their agenda? Everyone has one. What are their goals, dreams, etc? When they're not reacting to other characters, have them pursuing their own agenda so others can react to them. It's just a little shift in mindset. And if your current characters have agendas that are too passive for that to work, think about making one that has a more dynamic agenda so that you have a go-to character for when you feel like you need to be driving the story more.

I forget, was Agartha created wholecloth via the amethysts with some Create Planet type ritual, or did they find an uninhabited one and mold it to their desires?

Either way, how old exactly is Agartha?

Agartha was created from an uninhabited/uninhabitable planet and changed using a powerful and complicated ritual. And yes, it is roughly 1000 years old.

That explains why it doesn't bother me, at least. I never felt burned or hurt by the 3.5 proliferation. My group and I collected a great deal of those books and in nearly every single one of them we found something worth using, be it classes, races, spells, feats, items, monsters, SOMETHING.

So I don't have the "here we go again" mindset towards PF doing similar with new classes.

One of the things that my group failed to realize until after the fact is that our GM is just to busy to care about new content. All of the innovations in our game are player driven.so we had a lot of 3.5 splat books that never saw use. On the other hand, currently anything that gives us players new classes, spells, feats and so on is useful and gets used. The ones that don't get used are the couple of books that the GM bought in a fit of optimism before he remembered that all innovation in our game is player driven. *shrug* Sometimes we have to learn these things the hard way.

Though I am honestly curious.

What is it about the Alchemist that you dislike? Or is it just a grognardian "they should have stuck with the basic 11 classes and everything else should have been alternates/archetypes thereof" stance?

not so much grognardian as it was a direction I really would have liked to see them go in that was more open and accessible to all. Going in this direction with new classes and new books brings back a lot of old, bad arms-race/bookspace/cash flow memories. Paizo and the attached community have been *considerably* more mature about it than wizards and company were, mind- stuff being available online for free has been a HUGE help- and I don't think the world would shatter into a million pieces if you appeared at a table I was at and said you wanted to play a witch. But I still prefer more options that don't require shiny new book and build upon what is already there. I just really really want more alternate class features and archetypes that help me to define a character as opposed to a class I can't leave very often. The SaGa series has also molded my mind that way.

I can understand that. I like the new classes and use them often, but after getting burned so bad by the 3.5 splat book proliferation, I know I am way more sensitive about that too. I'm really picky about how many books I will buy now. I just think the ones featuring the new classes are worth it to me. A lot of these just couldn't be done properly with archetypes and it adds to the kinds of stories that can be told. But then, I get bored with 'standard' fantasy fare easily and I'm always wanting to add in elements from the old pulp novels I fell in love with when I was a teen. And I find the new classes make that easier :)
