And Happy Birthday (belated in some cases) to MG, MisterLurch, and any other of you with September birthdays. :)

Taron and Kam are pretty much background now because I'm simply not on Paizo enough for roleplay posting anymore.

Plus Tamrin might shoot them otherwise.

Most days Tamrin wouldn't actually shoot them. After the news he just got...maybe some wounding. Which is actually quite unfair. Totally blaming the wrong kid. Aurix was/will be kinda Ephebe's fault. Kinda. It's complicated.

Also, sadness. :(
I know it often goes in cycles, with life being more busy at some times than others, and you do stop by as often as you can, but I miss having you around more often. You're one of my very favorite people to RP with. Here's hoping for more posting time in the future. :)

That's how he ended up at Avalon in the first place. Being a male dryad definitely made him an oddity and so he didn't fit in among the other dryads. Normally a male child would just be a half-fey something, like Dennis, Pan's half-brother, is a half-fey Minotaur. Nobody is quite sure what exactly happened that Pan ended up as a male dryad. But he was more than happy to leave when Dennis suggested it. :)

Just got to the part where Ephebe learns Spin has left. Got me all teary eyed.

Couple of questions:

Is Pan still an active character? I think it might be interesting to have him and Silinrul meet.

How come Kam and Taron are mostly background characters right now? I know they have little ones on the way, but they were such a big part of the early story, and yet they seem to be hardly around now.

Also I was thinking of making some sort of character, either a student or maybe a random teacher who was around during the start of this game but left middle of that semester for whatever reason and is just now returning.

Would be kinda cool to play someone who knew Ephebe, Krays, Jiminy, etc when they were students, but left and so doesn't know who they've become.

Oh and because I know KC still randomly checks this thread,

Some time after I read the comment about the 'table of sin' aka go fish that was being played during the weekend of the survival field trip, I got Drowning Pool's Sinner stuck in my head, LOL!

Yes, Pan is still an active character. He is technically still a student, but spends most of his time teaching music classes. He's teaching Mel and Rakki both I think. He and Fieri are still close and still play an occasional random pickup gig in town even though the rest of the band moved on. Anyhow, he kinda can't leave, at least not easily. His tree got too big for easy transport. (He's a dryad.) And this place kinda works for him since his brother (Dennis) works in the factories. So he's planning to transition into full time teaching in the not too distant future.

Alright, I only have a few minutes before I have to go cook dinner, so I'm gonna try to get to as many posts/PMs/whatever as possible in that time. :)

Lyn,

Who is the third guard along with Alev and Elektra?

and what does Ardiente know about them? Personalities and ability wise?

Also,
How necessary is it to read the original Avalon stuff that took place before the start of this thread, in order to understand things going on in this game?

Etain. Ardiente grew up with them. They went through guard training together. Ardiente was the most talented of the group, which was why he got the assignment to Avalon in the first place, but they're all well trained firebenders. Alev is sarcastic and pessimistic. He uses stealth to his advantage in combat. Etain is vain and not that bright, but good-natured and generally optimistic. He tends to rely on brute force, always going for the most direct plan of attack. Elektra is kind of the 'mom' of the group, keeping the boys in line and being tough. She's the strategist of the group. She can conjure dual lightning blades, a technique she learned from her father. Her fighting style relies on precision rather than strength.

And not necessary at all. The relevant pieces of info have already been recapped in this thread for the most part. The rest is just fun background info for those of us who were there. :)

Oh, man. Tamrin's post. All the feels. Almost cried in public over that one.

I finished my sweater-coat last night. It started out as a cardigan, and as I worked I kept making adjustments to the pattern to make it smaller. I still ended up with an extremely roomy sweater-coat at the end. Apparently the pattern was made for giants. :P
Now I have to decide what to knit next. Probably a hat. I could use a quick pattern after spending four months on a sweater. :)

MG, well, that explains why you left Alev's post just hanging there. :)

Meanwhile, I am totally failing at adjusting to new school schedule. Why can't I reset my internal clock? Why?! *dramatic sobbing*

I mean: I didn't feel nervous; I don't think I'm sick; I didn't eat right before hand, nor did I starve myself.

Forms work is usually the hardest, IMO. You may be holding your breath in places without realizing it. So many things to concentrate on at once, it's easy to lose track of breathing. Also, because forms bring together so many other lessons. They are often much more physically demanding than they look. When I first started, the masters would have to stop me and tell me to go get a drink of water because I would work myself so hard during forms that I would collapse. I'm better at pacing myself now, but it still happens sometimes if I get really focused on something tricky. I wouldn't worry too much. Just remember to breathe. :)

Edit; and the sweet tea worked because electrolytes. You lose more than water when you sweat a lot. Also this is why you should wash your uniform frequently. Also why martial arts studios often smell like sweat socks. Blech. ;P

I was feeling tired and unmotivated yesterday so I decided to go clothes shopping since that was fun enough to get past the unmotivated part but still getting something accomplished. And apparently the apparel gods smiled upon me because not only did I have no trouble finding things I liked in my size but I found the perfect tank top. High neckline, loose, straps wide enough to actually hide my bra straps. Glorious. I got a whole bunch of them in assorted colors. :)
And today it is raining but not thundering (so perfect weather in my book), we went out for a delicious brunch, and then stopped at my favorite coffee place for a cocoa latte. And I'm going to make some delicious flourless chocolate cake this afternoon. It is a very good day. ^.^

hello all,

things have gotten crazy with me. I am trying to come back but missed a bit.

any recaps to help me out?

Most of what's been going on hasn't had any direct effect on your characters yet, so you're pretty much right where you left off. Mel is talking to Arthur in the infirmary. Ginni may be about to interrupt them when she senses that Mel is close again. But she can't get far, so she won't chase after if they leave the infirmary. :)

Lang is still with Ori. That conversation pretty much got dropped partway through. Which is fine. We can just do a sum up if you want. No need to force it.

Survived belt promotion. Woo. Three more months before I have to face the pain again. (It's really, really, really loud and the noise triggers massive vertigo. And I have to do my form through all that. Not a fun time.) Didn't fall over. Did get a little lost during line drills. We'll call that a success and move on.

Sorry for my continued silence. I've been dreadfully ill. Some food got cross-contaminated and I didn't find out until I'd eaten it on three separate occasions. so it's been days of hives, respiratory issues, and I've set up a semi-permanent camp in the bathroom. :/
Allergies suck.

The fact that you didn't have much of an answer sorta is one.

I was mostly looking to make sure my itneretation of a certain chsrecter was ok, and to see if a certain thing for igni was ok.

Ah. Yes, spot on actually. On the same wavelength here. And the thing for igni is fine. :)

And then only found one that was in need of a partial answer. I know there was more there I meant to say I think, but now I forget. Sigh. Mind like a sieve I have.

Jeebus...

Four Champions gone, just like that.

Part of me thinks Ace should have borne witness, as the death of Champions is a big deal, but since he hasn't officially been chosen yet, not sure it would have made sense.

Was gonna say something earlier, but I wasn't sure they were gonna die.

Yeah, Aurix is no joke. Remember folks, this guy killed a Patron once.

There will be other characters written out soon, too. I'm cleaning up loose ends. With permission from their players. Except in a couple of cases whose players haven't logged onto Paizo in years. I left a polite message explaining things in case they ever log back on.

Argh! Problems between my Bluetooth keyboard and my iPad mean that my whole long post for Asch and Amada got deleted. Wouldn't even let me copy/paste before it crashed Safari. It's moments like this that make me think that I should have just got a MacBook instead of using an iPad as my primary computer. :(

The 3.5 versions were amazing and the single most terrifying creatures printed: namely because it was retconned that, in addition to normal dragon stuff (including sorcerer caster thingies), they were psions of their discipline-type with a manifester level equal to their hit dice.
...Seriously? How did I miss this?

Probably because (if I recall correctly) it was in the eratta documentation that updated the MM2 to 3.5 and, from what I recall, never explicitly mentioned anywhere else.

This transformed them from dragons with attack/defense modes (ugh) and a few psi-like abilities to some of the most terrifying things in print. Sadly, I had little enough cause to ever actually use them - the few Psionic games I've run ended up featuring few (if any) dragons (one, I had plans for, but never quite got there, due to life reasons), and fluffable Psionic nature or no, I ended up running published stuff within one or two campaigns after realizing how they had been so deeply altered, so... no real chance.

But some day... with a single feat taken... a 3.5 game will end in epic psionics...

I find that if you drop them into Pathfinder, they are no longer quite so crazy since everything else got a power boost in the changeover. But obviously one of my favorite creaures. That and anything fey. :)

I have checked and this is the first time anyone has told Lucas in character he can't have his snack

(He likes the taste and texture of the beans)

And I'm sure there are teens who like the taste of whiskey....doesn't mean they should have it.

I think the reminder was delivered out of character, but he would definitely know that it wasn't okay. He might have been allowed limited quantities at home, but to just munch on the beans is doing the hard stuff. It shouldn't be a surprise to him to get called out on this.

So: Doomkitten, lynora, and Ambrosia: team Blithen or team Sardior?!

In case my esoterica is too esoteric (or you want to learn more): part one and part two.

Let the eternal debate commence! Ò.Õ

Well, I've never been a big fan of Sardior. He's so bloody smug. Seriously, he's awful. (Why I rewrote the gem dragon pantheon for my game in a nutshell.) So I would have to go with team Blithen. I mean, sure, he's a bit evilish, but what did you expect?! It's what grand viziers do. Everyone knows backstabbing is part of the most trusted advisors job description. ;P

So!

FaWtLians!

Question time...

Which of:
- Lich
- Zombie
- Vampire
- Mummy
- Skeleton
or
- Ghoul
... and which of:
- Ghost
- Shadow
- Specter
- Allip
or
- Wraith
... and why?

Undead and templates so you can think about all the possible permutations and variants of each kind of each of them before making your final answer. And yes, the questions are that vague. Feel free to interpret what they're actually asking. We shall see how correct you are. Hehehehe...

Also, Psychic or Psionic? Why?

If the former, Paizo or Green Ronin? If the latter, Dream Scarred or Wizards? Either way: why?

(I already asked NH in his thread, and decided to just spam you all here. Nyahahahahah~!)

I...don't really have strong feelings about any of the undead. I'd pretty much just pick at random. Except not ghouls because they're gross.

Defintiely Psionic. Dreamscarred. I love how versatile it is, with lots of options for creating all different kinds of superhero concepts within the game rules. Not familiar with the Green Ronin psychic stuff, but OA was a huge disappointment to me. Like kid opening a Christmas present to find a PlayStation box only to find it's full of socks kind of disappointment. It...just doesn't work for me. I wanted it to, but it doesn't. :/

Okay, I think I'm all caught up. Did I miss anything? If so, let me know. It's hard to keep track when life keeps getting all interrupty. :P


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I have a little time before I have to go do errands again. Yay! (Hates all the running around so much, hates it we do.) Time to catch up on the game!
Would have done this morning, but I went back to bed after the kidlet went to school. Because I'm exhausted from all the running around. And also the sunburn. It's one of the worst sunburns I've ever had in my life. Pants are horrible punishment, but I don't dare wear skirts because I need to keep the raw skin covered. >.<


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

AFK again today. Took kidlet to the water park yesterday. Owowowowowowwwwww.....so much sunburn. :(
Going to the lake today.....this is massively unwise. But plans were made. So I will be wearing my yoga pants to swim in because my legs are badly burned. Anyhoo, there's little to no cell signal there, so even if I'm bored out of my mind, I can't post. Darn it.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Not currently sure where Cindra, Hestia, and Pyrrhos are. If nothing else the arrows will lead you to Solus in the cafeteria.

Thanks. Can't be serious all the time. :)
