I don't think you heard that line properly, as I heard, "Field trip!"
The ice cream flavors were something like Stark Raving Hazelnut, and "Hulka Hulka Burning Fudge" or something like that. Look, if I've got to go see it a third time to nail down the ice cream flavors, I will...
So my kids got me this calendar last Christmas where each page is some cool/weird place or thing somewhere in the world. One of the entries last week was about an old signal tower for the Optical telegraph, which was designed by a French fellow named Chappe around the time of the Revolution.
My question is, do you see anyplace in Golarion having a use for something like that? Where/how?
Thanks for your time.
I suspect we might be too late in the game to be introducing Adam Warlock as an actual character rather than an Easter Egg. It sounds like CM is all cued up to be our salvation from Thanos' plan. In a way it's a shame, because Adam had one of the best all-time lines in the comic version of this story.
I forget exactly how it plays out, but Thanos loses the gauntlet (to Nebula, right?), and he's on the verge of throwing down to get it back, and Adam points out to him that this is like the zillionth time Thanos has gained ultimate power only to lose it, which is his way of subconsciously acknowledging he is not worthy of that power. Thanos takes a long pause, and is like, "Fine. Then what's your plan...?"
EDIT: would one be "cued up" or "queued up"?
When Vision turned colors, it reminded me of when Prime died in the Transformers: the Movie. Except Vision had the Matrix on his forehead and it was a lot more useful in day-to-day life.
The Mind Stone didn't seem to be doing Vision a whole lot of favors.
(I never saw the Transformers movie. Only ever heard good things about it, though. I would sometimes catch the cartoon if I got home from track practice early enough, and I remember seeing episodes that took place after the movie, and thinking, "Damn, WTH did I miss there?")
I enjoyed the hell out of this movie!
I'm going to spoiler part of this next bit, just in case...
The folks who got "Snapped" out of existence are all damn near certain locks to come back, even without taking into account that several of these characters are slated for upcoming movies,
if only because:
a similar reversion happened in the original comics that are this story's source material.
Loved the surprise return of That Guy on Vormir!
When Thanos gave Vision his unwilling Stonectomy, Vision got all discolored as he died. The first association I made was the discoloration that happened to him in the WCA story line from the late 80s, where he got taken apart and reassembled. Very different circumstances and colors, I know, I'm just saying that's what came to mind.
Thor's new eye courtesy of Rocket was a different color, and maybe I'm reading too much into this, but did the color look a little like Heimdall's eyes?
About that post-credit sequence:
Man, if I wasn't looking forward to Captain Marvel before, I sure as hell am now! I just hope a plausible reason is given why she wouldn't have appeared before this. The way I see it, she can't have spent the past 25 years anywhere near Earth, or Kree space (since GotG was implied to have taken place in their neck of the woods).

What I'm actually hoping for is that from the jump, 2E has some baked-in version of ABP, and there will be more incentive (or at least the option) to not be married to one particular weapon.
For me that just hearkens back to a WWCD* type of thing, as the big guy rarely used the same weapon twice.

Given that there are changes to how both actions and attack rolls work, and thus the underpinnings of both feats' 1e workings, I'd hoped people could actually hold off on doom crying until we'd seen the whole elephant.

IIRC no attack penalty on Power Attack, but I forget its full mechanics. It was the cause of much consternation when it was announced.
This. The other contender of a name was "Vera", but I think I used that joke more recently, so I went with this one. :-)
This blog about deities mentions favored weapon, which reminds me, do we know anything about weapons in 2e? In 1e, one of the key distinguishing features of weapons is their crit behavior (range and/or multiple), buy crits work rather differently in 2e. Do we have any idea what, for instance, makes a 2e longsword different from a battleaxe?

You could use an action for Upgrade Team (and spend 250 gp) to bump Forvian's Fighters up to Tier 2 Infiltrators to gain the Rescue Character action, then use a subsequent action to try to rescue the captured supporter. That would leave one additional action for this week.
Then let's try it that way, with our third action being used for Gather Info.
(If folks think we should recruit instead, LMK.)
Drop lowest: 4d6 - 2 ⇒ (5, 6, 2, 4) - 2 = 15
Yeah, look up "swingy" in the dictionary, look, there I am! :) I'll just stick with the 20pb, assuming I can figure out some way to make an axe-musket guy. :)
Sadly this morning, Slides kind of threw up its hands and said, "Look Felix, I've undone just about all I'm gonna undo at this point. You're on your own the rest of the way."
What I really need is a way to tell Slides, "If I get my mitts on a piece, I don't want to resize it, I just want to move the damn thing." I can do it fine from my desktop, but not from my phone.
So I've been reading over the rules for the Unchained Action Economy, seeing as how it's clearly the basis for 2e (and I don't know, maybe Starfinder uses it too, but I haven't gotten SF yet).
Are you constrained by your BAB on how many attacks you can make? Like, in "normal" rules, a level 3 fighter gets one attack at +3 (plus everything-yadda-yadda). In the UAE, if I'm not using actions for other stuff, can I go +3/-2/-7? I mean, in most cases it seems like it'll be a waste of time, but one might get lucky, no?
Thanks for your time.
My spear gripe is, my god, the hoops one has to go through to trip with a spear (get hip-deep into the Spear Dancing Style feat chain, and then you can take the feat that lets staffs trip). Too much, IMO.
Normally, when a movie comes out, and we get, say, after a Thor movie, tons of "Help my hammer build become Thor!" posts, I end up with an epic case of eyeroll strain, bad enough that it can keep me from driving my car. That said, the Dora Milaje really really made spears look friggin' awesome.
