No, he is obviously a chicken. A sneaky chicken perhaps, but no less a chicken.

When my brothers picked on me I used to slip corn into their back pockets before they woke up in the morning.

Vengeance is best served with chicken.. and turkey.. and duck.. and geese.

We did something similar with the trogs, albeit with a cleric of sarenrae. When my cho-ja rogue took leadership much later on, his cohort was a trog cleric of the dawnflower as well. The trog's name was Maggot.

At least we now know what the sacred food for Calistria is.


Hhhhhhhhhhhhhuh. The Foreigner is a much more raw film than I expected from Jackie Chan. It started early with

Spoiler:
his niece dying in a bombing

and continued with

Spoiler:
him bombing an ex-IRA guy's office

(though as a warning with no one getting hurt - hardly excuses it).

There is precious little comedy - physical or otherwise - to be had, here (though Jackie's ability to tank suffering and use martial arts is on full display). Honestly, though, for a deeply political, dramatic, and dark film for Chan, I would not have expected a work centering on the IRA or any such thing. It is an unexpected choice, to be sure, though it feels relatively effective, so far.

Easily the darkest work I've ever seen Chan in, though it does show off how good an actor he is.

For clarity, I have not finished it - it was just... a surprise to find.

It's kind of funny how different people view illnesses. Ever since I took over most of the kid duty back in 2008 or 2009, I've had mild colds practically once a month. I figure the kids go to the petri dish that is school, bring home a whole host o' pathogens, and the "cold" is just my immune system getting used to the latest batch. My temperature never goes above 99.5°F, I never have coughs nor runny noses nor anything particularly inconvenient, it's just a big, "Mild fever, mild headache, low energy" effect.

GothBard thinks I get sick way too often and is worried. I think most people just push through such symptoms because they have to be at work, so they just ignore all the little minor irritations they get year-round.

Since I basically have no commute, I can start work, work until I'm tired, and call it a day, so I accumulate a LOT of 6-hour days, where I take the final 2 hours off to nap off a cold.

I'm just wondering how many people would find themselves similarly ill far more frequently if they actually didn't have to "push through" minor colds...

Yeah, it's funny. Shiro and I were discussing the merits of the author, where pretty much any approach the party takes is fine, from genocide to conquest to diplomacy, and it all works equally well from both a loot AND a story perspective (pretty much my definition of a well written AP), and we specifically noted that any paladin of any god could justify and get away with the genocide approach... except paladins of Sarenrae.

They'd fall so hard they'd leave a crater.

Well, in Riddleport, at least, the, uh, "priestesses" (among others) are referred to as "laced mutton." And yams go great with mutton!

I don't... I don't know what I'm suggesting, here, other than I like food.

Pretty sure this can be extrapolated elsewhere, and maybe somehow related to "gams" but I'm not the one to either make the exact relationship clear or figure out the tie other than similar-sounding names and noting vague relationship context.

Also corn.

AND CHICKEN~!

Our cleric was a goblin focused on her fire domains, but was used to being the 'outsider' to explain his additional willingness to convert them. He also ended up being co-opted by the clone trap. Then died and was reincarnated...rolling a goblin on the table...

Zobmaggle was a lasting impression for our crew, and was later canonized by the time we played Wrath. The NPC cleric of Sarenrae was a fire oriented goblin who really worshiped St. Zobmaggle of the Flame.

Late to the party but im all for it NH. I love when GMs adjust and change and morph NPCs to react to the choices and actions of the party in unexpected or interesting ways.

Speaking of, I need to work on something to that effect for my ST group...

My group stay out:
My party made an enemy of the CG paladin guy from the War of the Wielded side adventure by negotiating a cease fire between the two factions of intelligent weapons rather than destroying them, and have kept sone of the blades for themselves in their travels; specifically the Warlock uses the Contessa staff/dire flail, the slayer dual wields Sabrehawke and Lady Anakara, the aegis kept Hoardcutter, and the swashbuckler|magus has Princessa Cathandra as her Black Blade.

I want him to show up again to "finish the job", reclassed due to Falling (again) in his thirst for vengeance against the party and refusal to accept the brokered peace, and wielding a sickle-sword forged from the Kogoloxen's mandibles and rusting tendrils.

Or is that too evil? Mwahahah....

In other news... a weird question. Would anyone here be up for a pbp game done in Discord that is basically CastleVania or Bloodstained? Entire campaign takes place inside an ancient huge haunted castle sort of thing?

Updated: these are all the people who have posted in or have been mentioned within the last five pages that I've been able to tell!

(The following are in alphabetical order by poster name.)

(These are my personal canon, though I can be swayed.)

(I'm much more familiar with Marvel, so there's gonna be a bias, there.)

Supers as discussed so far:

CY + Aquaman via Momoa or Spiderman or Flash Wolverine (I'd suggest more Morph! Because of the aliases!)

Drejk + Mobley or maybe Forge

Freehold + Hercules (Marvel)

gran + Morph (though I'd actually suggest he's more like

John + Nick Fury

Limey + Union Jack

LM + Spiral nevermind!

LS + Beast

NH + Xavier (with mohawk)

Nylarthotep +

Orthos + Gambit

Scint + Jubilee

Sharoth + Beast

TL + Gob

TOZ +

TVE +

Vany +

Vid + Wolverine

Woran + Mystique

Here is my personal canon! WOO~!

> CY + Morph ecause of the aliases!

> Drejk + Traveler with his ability to spin creatures, adventures, and worlds into being

> Freehold + Hercules (Marvel) because of his ability with women

> gran + Dogpool because "yo, Dawg..."

> Icy + Spiderman 'cause that dude's always running and working and stuff!

> John + Nick Fury because of a rockin' eye-patch

> Limey + Union Jack because they're super British

> LM + Spiral nevermind! Let's go with Phoenix because she has lots of things she has to keep in the air

> LS + Banshee because he's a cool dad and Irish!

> NH + Xavier (with mohawk) because he's AWESOME

> Nylarthotep + Nylarthotep because they share the same name and are terribly mysterious

> Orthos + Multiple Man because he's got an aesthetic that's similar to Gambit, but with a much more similar personality to Orthos' projection (and his ability to be OP)

> Scint + Jubilee because she's short and brings the "spark" of education to peoples' lives, and RAINBOW~

> Sharoth + Beast because of the large number of books he owns and reads

> TL + Gob because I've got a ton of earwax- I mean, because I've got a warm heart and am sociable, yeah

> TFY + Iceman 'cause they're both so cool!

> TOZ + Longshot because he's popular, cool, and you never know when he'll show up

> TVE + Bishop because he does not care and has got a job to do post to make

> Vany + Forge because of his technopathic mastery of machines

> Vid + Wolverine because of his muttonchops and razor claws

> Woran + Mystique because of her great shapeshifting

Non-(common)-FaWtL affiliates:

> GothBard + Nico Minoru

> Shiro + Warren Warthington the Third because of his vast unending wea- I mean, his angelic presence and grace

Hope everyone is more-or-less pleased! Love you all!

Jokes aside, I'm guessing you think of Aquaman because of Momoa, CY? I can see that! Though I'd put you akin to Wolverine: you're the best there is at what you does, bub, and you're tough enough to take a beating and keep on going!

For the record:

Forge (he was one of my favorite character concepts back in the day)

Jubilation Lee (she was a kidhood crush, of sorts, back in the day; it helped that she was the POV character for the X-Men cartoon, and the designated side-kick of the Wolverine comics)

Cyclops (Scott used to be awesome; now he is whiny and a jerk - a move I think they made to make Jean's "thing" with Wolverine more palatable, though it feels to me more like it just makes everyone worse)

Hank McCoy (a sometime Avenger, member of the X-Men, played by Frasier in the movies, and all-around awesome dude)

Black Knight (a reincarnating knight spirit what gives the villains a good thwacking)

Professor X (awesome telepath; can't walk; dreams of peaceful co-existence; former best friends with the villain)

Wolverine (fierce, tough, regenerating mutant; super cool)

Hercules (come on, you all know Herakles; I'm sure you've seen the biography done on him by Disney! Also, I totally linked the wrong Hercules, previously.)

Tony Stark (I mean, come one, if you've seen the Marvel movies - any of them - you probably know who he is!)

I think that's all we've mentioned so far?

EDIT: minor corrections

I very much...

I... I forgot what I was doing here. OH WELL

I'm not convinced that makes me Morph (nor do I want to be some faceless guy in yellow).

Surely there's a Marvel superhero NOT affiliated with the X-Men.

Otherwise I'm sticking with Aquaman.

Ah! I forgot you hated X-Men. Sorry!

(For what it's worth, I wasn't thinking of his association - or anyone's for that matter - when picking him.)

That said, he's not faceless - he's got lots of faces! Also has a great sense of humor!

I do not find this a weird question - I like it, and also totally would right up until I flake and irritate TVE!

I like Gothbard as Nico too. I didn't care for some of the twists and turns that happened with Runaways and in particular did not care for the TV show, but I LOVE the individual characters.

I can live with Forge. I can only wish I was that good. Certainly better than giving me Modok.


Freehold DM wrote:

You know, I kind of liked eXiles, but kind of felt weird about it, because they took a bunch of cool character concepts, shifted around all of their characterizations (feeling a bit dissonant) and didn't quite ever gel into what I wanted out of it. It was a really cool idea, and I liked a lot of it - there was just something a little bit off preventing it from becoming a favorite that I could never quite put my finger on.

Still, you're right! He was bigger there! That's cool!

I loved the start of Runaways, but unfortunately that's about the time that I dropped out of comics, for the most part, so I kind of lost what happened, picked it up later and was exceptionally confused about where they were and how they'd ended up there.

I'm interested, but I tend to not do well with pbp because my available time is too sporadic.

I really REALLY like this.

I am also a fan of the Tales series back when it had a more 90s/00s feel and less of a slice of life with magic modern one.

Indeed.

I truly love alternate takes on well established characters, and age of apocalypse for it first and best, with eXiles coming in second and House of M and others coming a distant third.

No love for Marvel Zombies here, though.


I'm with you on Marvel Zombies. It was... fascinating, yes, but... yeagh. It felt pointless.

I've never read House of M, believe it or not - that was while I was out!

Loved Age of Apocalypse.

I just don't want a goofy outfit or an affiliation with the X-Men, is that too much to ask... Hold on, I think I answered my question...

In case you're wondering why I dislike the X-Men, it's because they were HUGE with my generation, at least with my group, so it was kind of annoying.

Also, X-Men 3 was so bad I immediately threw it away after watching so no one else would have to watch it.
