Isn't the Falcon just the Gen Lee in space ?

Other way around. The Falcon predates the show. THE MYSTERY DEEPENS.

The ex was looking at my phone (do I give points for still caring or take away points for keeping old habits) and clicked on my favorites.

She happened on the current OotS and asked 'Is this a Cain and Abel moment?'

And I started with a smile and said

'No ...'

Blink, Blink

Me: 'Yes. Yes it is. Nicely done. Want to read the last few?'

Her: 'No. Where's my food?'

Frost Giants have Highschools, who knew?

Also 'Frost Giant Highschool' would make a bad retro cover band name.

So Bandana's alive. For now. Don't forget, without a cleric or easily-available Elan, someone's gotta make a Heal check to stop her bleeding out.

My theory about the mutiny that leads to Belkar's death continues to look plausible. Then again, V and Haley might run into him on the way back.

Might have been non-lethal damage?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Technically, there's no way to inflict nonlethal damage with an improvised weapon without taking a -8 to the attack. And a wrench doesn't really scream "nonlethal" to me. :P

Jeff,

With a wrench that size?! It seems unlikely.

Someone failed a Concentration check.

Also we see here why it is never a good idea to go against the wishes of high-level adventurers, even benevolent ones :-)

And I second Roy's statement : at higher levels, my RotRL party worked like a well-oiled machine of death and plunder.

Actually, it isn't.

His team (Roy, Elan, Vesuvius, Haley, and even Belker) are acting like a well oiled machine. It is the ship's crew that are having a problem.

Ironic because The Machine and her crew, literally and figuratively ARE a well oiled machine. Until they had to do all these save the world stuff.

Adventuring, still not for NPC Classes.

Roy's speech isn't contradicted, it's a juxtaposition highlighting the contrast between the two teams.

Well put, and more accurate than my statement when just looking at OotS as the main 6 characters of the webcomic (plus Blackwing). But I was thinking of the fight in the larger sense of the "team" being those on the airship vs. the enemy frost giants; in that sense, I think my statement can also stand.

And this is why you stick to the known pass. A perfect example of low levels learning from their mistakes (or dying trying).

"Using Diplomacy to influence a creature's attitude takes 1 minute of continuous interaction."

On the plus side, the detour may actually get the giants to concentrate enough in one spot that V, Haley, and Belkar can damage/defeat most of them. Having them spread out the way they were was complicating things and forcing them to use more resources.

All I know is never let the guys that have no experience in combat drive the getaway vehicle.

So will they go port or starboard?

I was actually thinking that, although high levels, the OotS is having an easy enough time with some Leveled Frost Giants, who would have HPs to spare and can dish out damage as well.

Then I remember this is a (great) comic and the story takes precedence.

Baron,

I think the OotS might have advantage against a FEW frost giants but an entire army is something else.

An army of Frost Giants still does not have a chance!

Mmm you make an excellent point Lord Fyre. But those were merely a few hobgoblins, not Frost Giants. I will concede though, Sexy shoeless god of war is a monster force.

Good points all around gentlemen.

But never underestimate the power of the Narrative Plot.

True, Baron. Narrative plot has a strong control in many a reality...

Clouds maybe. Elan's brains? Most definitely.

Also am I the only one annoyed that the engineer thinks she's doing a good job when clearly she's unqualified to do?

Tri,

You might be right. But I really am getting tired of seeing that right now.

Had to look that one up. One of the best parts about being part of the Paizo community is I learn something new on a regular basis. Thanks for that!

As a kid I assumed clouds would taste like marshmallows or cotton candy.

As an adult who played D&D I assume they taste like Cloud Giants' feet.

Knew of the Dunning Kruger effect, but didn't think of it in regards of the current presidency. So that's new to me. Now who can I lay this on?


Baron,

People that have no idea the difference between true leadership (like Roy) and the ones that kind of hit people over the head maybe?

6 months in this pass and the arc has literally degenerated into a childhood spat involving the background characters. Thats... fantastic.

Way past time to get this side quest back on the rails, skip to thwarting the stupid plan to destroy the world and get back to the convoluted scheme that might not destroy the world. Or at least spend some amount of time with characters that might actually be involved in anything relevant at all.

Without the airship, this would have been months of bickering between the party's horses.

This is a very interesting arc, and I am greatly enjoying it. :)

If Mechanic survives, Bandana will give her the opportunity.

"If you're gonna tie my hands up, at least have the manners to stop saying stuff that's just begging for a facepalm."


That was a good line, Fyre.

But yes, I think Bandana will probably toss her in the brig.
