Ice, sorry I'm a bit behind on PMs. Or at least on the ones that require more than a short answer. I will try to get to them tomorrow. :)

Kidlet and neighbor kid having a nerf fight. I'm having a headache. These two things are related.

Hey there, Lynora (et al).

Sorry for the delays, will update tomorrow provided work isn't completely busy busy, as it was today.

Your last post with Andromeda made me laugh out loud, for real'z.

Hope you're feeling better and rested.

Glad to entertain. :)

I'm really enjoying playing with the differences between Andromeda and Ephebe. And seeing Andromeda moving farther and farther away from her previous hyper achieving type A personality. :)

Having a bad asthma day, which is definitely doing bad things to my memory and concentration. Apparently brain needs oxygen. How annoying. ;)
So I'm probably not going to post much today. Might get a Ryleh post up later, but I have so many balls in the air right now, it's hard to keep track of who is supposed to be where and know what. Apologies for delays.

Dunno that fire bending at a firebird will work that well...

Good thing I also seem to have earth bending.

Not sure if I can do any damage with it, but then again, I have no idea what I can do with it period.

Maybe I can create a rock prison, or stomp on the ground and toss one of them away. Or stun or blind them.

Idk, just looking for more options beyond 'grapple check, if successful deal damage'.

So, here's the thing. You only get to see one side of the combat. Going in to this, I was reasonably worried about the possibility of a TPK. It could have happened very easily. But smart tactics and luck have saved the day, even if they didn't look super cool doing it. First off, you guys used silence and stealth to their maximum advantage. Ardiente to disrupt the spell casting, and Fei to get Raelle out. Even Alev contributed since he kept Ollifer in the silence field long enough to prevent him effectively giving/receiving orders. If you hadn't done that Aine and Aithne would have used Raelle as a hostage (if we stop the spell the magic goes haywire and she's right in the center, she'll die) and while Fiilah and the other two (I'm out of naming ideas so we'll just call them Fyre and Smoak and have done with it) were not overpowered combatants, Ollifer was. If not for a very lucky shot and some really crazy alchemical goo there would have been deaths. And then Fei rendered Aine unconscious, taking her out of the fight. (The alchemical goo is nowhere near enough to really render her powerless. If she regains consciousness, then things get real.) And the only reason Aithne isn't wiping the floor with y'all is that Ardiente has been consistently dealing enough damage to him to mess up his concentration checks. Cause he can totally do a still, silent spell....if he didn't keep losing it. (Some rolls I do off screen just to not give away too much about an opponent, especially if they have the potential to become a recurring villain.) So basically, while it hasn't necessarily felt as awesome as it actually was, Ardiente has been a key reason why the PCs currently have the upper hand.

Which they can just as quickly lose. Aithne isn't out of this fight yet....

Just thought it might help to get some perspective from the other side of things.

I've been getting way too lax with the carbs lately, so I signed up for this new diet cause accountability is supposed to be good and all that jazz. And it sounded so reasonable and perfectly doable. And then I got the materials. I have made a grave mistake. The question is how long it's going to take me to wash out of this program, not if. >.<

I forgot the rule. I should never forget the rule. (The rule is that we don't sign up for any more diet programs. Ever. Never ever.) It always ends in tears. And biochemistry arguments. And then more tears.

But it cost a lot of money, so now I feel like I have to at least try it. Sigh. I can maybe live without the nuts and even maybe the sweet potato (under protest), but the whole thing gets chucked out the window when pumpkins are in season. I wait all damn year for fresh pumpkin. All. Damn. Year. Any diet that wants to restrict me from eating stewed pumpkin with tamari sauce is not for me. :P

WOW WHAT AN AWESOME AMAZING WEEKEND OF WRESTLING!!

Back online, any responses required of me?

Glad you had fun. :)

Let's see... Ardiente needs to take his action for the round. Morrivan is waiting on Sil in that conversation. And Ace was talking to Tami, although I don't know that you had anything more to add there. That's all I can think of off the top of my head. :)

Been reading old Phaezeriel posts to give myself better context for Vai's reactions.

on the bright side I found all the old info on what he was supposed to be doing for Chara's condition. on the not so bright side, I've given her condition two different names and now I don't know which one to keep: smogra's syndrome or charzine's syndrome.

I imagine this actually happens in real life quite a bit (two names for the same illness) so you can probably explain it away as both ;)

Smogra sounds like a pokemon though hah.

lol. Yeah, a bit. And I can just imagine the dueling physicians who both claimed to have discovered the sickness, the name of which varies depending on which medical textbook you happen to read. :)

Or Chara just got the name wrong. Cause she's seven. :P
Edit: Or the disease was discovered by one Charzine Smogra and naming conventions are just weird. :)

So... if your new character's background is so over-the-top dark that your GM says she's a bit uncomfortable with it, do you:

Since it's FaWtL, and it's not against the rules (I think), here's the GM-approved version, with a couple of notes about the changes at the end. (Yes. I'm a good player. I worked with my GM to come up with a back story we could both enjoy. So sue me...)

** spoiler omitted **...

Oh. Okay. I've...actually seen worse. But then I'm a big fan of let evil be evil...so it's way more satisfying later on when you get to destroy it. :)

But I can see how that might not be the right tone for every campaign.

lol. Yeah, no worries, Dami. I can manage to be a little bit patient while waiting for new mayhem to ensue. :)

MG, I paused the action with Ginni to give Ace a chance to react. So basically I'm waiting on you. :)

These new avatars are all pretty neat. I like this raccoon guy. I identify well with raccoons because I'm chubby, nocturnal, have dark marks under my eyes, and eat mostly junk. He's so fancy in his nice shirt. And he's an agathion, so he's a good aligned outsider.

I found some I was gonna recommend to you guys:

Ice, there's one called Helmet that would be a great one for your construct Leonal. Metal lion looking dealie.

Lyn, there's one that made me think of that one pic you linked a couple years ago that might be good for you. I think the name was doc imogene?

Also considering making Kevin the blue salamander.

I couldn't find the one you're talking about. It doesn't come up when I search for that name, and it's so easy to get distracted by all the pretty, pretty pictures when I just look through it. :)

Kevin Ramos wrote:

This doesn't look any more like Kevin than the bowl of good does.

What do y'all think? Is it worth having a reptile shape if it doesn't actually look like him or should I leave it vague with the bowl of goop?

This one makes me associate Kevin even more with Bob from Monsters vs Aliens. This is not necessarily a good or bad thing. It's just a thing. :)

Alright, there are now images for all of those characters except Dennis. Because where am I getting an image for a half-fey Minotaur?! ;)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

The image I used to have for Ginni is no longer available, so I had to pick out a new one.

And I fixed the link for Aananda.

And you do love giving me projects, don't you? ;P

Kidlet has made friends with the new neighbor kid. This is good. The extremely noisy nerf battle that's been going on all day not as good.

Sorry I'm not quite ready

I should hopefully be ready by the end of his game day, but vai was introduced really early I on the plot... That's a lot of backlog to read

No worries. I thought that you might not be through all of that stuff yet. I'll keep playing her for now and just let me know when you're ready to take over.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Hey, I managed to stay conscious long enough to get through posts! Yay me! :P
Nasty stomach bug has totally bowled me over the last two days. Here's hoping it's almost over with. Bleh.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

LF, are you prepared to play Vai now or do you need me to NPC her for this scene? I'd rather have you do it if you can, but I get that it's a complicated character and you might need more prep time.

It would take a miracle

I really don't mind there being other speedsters. I don't even have to have Andromeda be the best speedster. My thing was seeing that she was actually quite a bit slower than I'd realized. When the speeds were broken down in Chao Yin's post, I realized that she was actually quite slow for what I'd intended. It was more about the character not being able to do what she was supposed to do. She's supposed to be so fast that your eyes can't even track her when she runs. That's a lot faster than a race car. Basically I made an error in my calculations for speed when I made the character and I was disappointed that she wasn't what I intended. And now I have a template I can apply that gets her there so she can run like , well, yes, like Jessie Quick. :)

"faster then the eye can track" isn't a terribly clear goal.

1. That's pretty cool.

2. Eh, I was just going for superhero fast. I did actually have target numbers to hit, because some delightful person with too much time on their hands wrote an article detailing how fast the Flash would have to have been going to do some of the things he did. I knew I was under those numbers, but I thought I was closer to them than I actually turned out to be. I made mistakes converting between metric and standard. Shocking that. ;P

The only reason Rakki is fast is because there were stories about Tanuki being uncatchably fast. He's way too chill to use it, so don't worry about that.

I'm not actually fussed about it. Just thought it was funny. And hey, now I've got a solution to a problem I was mostly gonna hand wave anyways. :P


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I actually never considered adding a template. On the one hand it seems like a little much. On the other hand it would let her actually achieve the kinds of speeds that the Flash does...


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Lol. Yeah, it's just funny that a speedster would have trouble with sprints. XD


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Waiting on an answer to a question before I put up the next Ginni post. But I realized I forgot to ask a couple of other relevant questions. Would Tami see any visible change in Phaeze? How would Ace be effected being connected to Phaeze's secondary mind?


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

We're well into epic spells aka I'm just making this up as I go along, but it's really, really bad, yeah. If it goes off (which is unlikely...there's like an hour more of casting to go) it would take multiple Wishes and a fair amount of luck to undo. I've been keeping a counter going behind the scenes to see how far into the ritual they had time to get.

And let me just say, Aine and Aithne del Sol are definitely on the list of NPCs leaving me wanting to scrub out my brain after I have to write for them. This has been true for quite some time, but I had to give them the appearance of maybe not being totally evil. >.<

And now it becomes obvious why my name for that subplot is A House Divided.

Ellsuana wrote:

Then Ellsuna is definitely Winter fey.

Edit: Lyn, should I find an existing fey or should I create one via the race builder or is there a base fey race your using?

Fey is a type, not so much a single race. You can use an existing or create one via the race builder. But obviously if you do the second you have to include the relevant info in your profile.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown
Monkeygod wrote:

Yea, I know, that's why I'm asking.

Lyn, is this applicable for our Winter Fey. Tis a quote by Harry(I assume Dresden lol): "Winter's nature was beautiful violence, stark clarity, the most feral needs, and animal desires and killer instinct pitted against the season of cold and death—the will and desire to fight, to live, even when there was no shelter, no warmth, no respite, no hope, and no help."

Since most of what we're using for the fey was inspired by the Dresden books, hell yeah it's applicable. :)

Monkeygod wrote:

Lyn, two things:

1) You haz a PM

B) I coulda sworn there was a diplomacy/relations with other races class, but I didn't see it looking over the class list. Was I imagining this(It would have been a newer class) or have you not gotten around to adding it yet?

I'm not aware of any such class. Not that it wouldn't be appropriate. :)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown
Monkeygod wrote:

Her concept/backstory will change drastically depending on whether or not she can be a fae, and if I make her a PC or NPC.

My initial post was to get the discussion started with Lyn but not via PM as I know she has lots of those, and this doesn't need to be kept a secret atm.

Entirely separate topic:

I know I asked this before, but I can't remember the answer, but was Agartha a planet before the Amethysts showed up, or did they create it whole cloth through the power of their psionics?

Aka, was there a planet before, or did they make a brand new planet?

Well, we have other fey in the game, so I don't see why not. But the big question is, which court? That drastically changes the types of interactions that might occur with the other characters, most especially the fey ones. Wildfae, Winter, and Summer are the choices. None of them are inherently what you'd call nice.

And same answer as the last time you asked. :)
Yes, the small desolate planet already existed and it was terraformed/transformed into Agartha as we know it. Imagine someone started with the moon and turned it into an Earth type planet. So yes, they added material to the existing base. Rather a lot of it. But it wasn't just all created whole cloth out of nothing.
