Pretty. Especially the waterfall. I guess it is the minerals in the stone that give it that cool golden look.
Yeah it's the excess Fe3+ ions in the water that gives everything in there the gold sheen. There are no fish in the water and we were speculating that it's too toxic for life in there.

Pretty but lifeless hmm If I was the right kind of philosopher their would be a lot to read into that.

These are all great.

Hey Woran I was meaning to ask if you have ever listened to Otep after checking out some of the bands you mentioned I thought they might be one you would like.
Not that I know of. I'll check it out when I'm home.
Didnt have time yesterday evening. Quoting myself as a reminder.
Start with The Ascension album It's their best one IMO.

Hm. Not bad. Need to persue some albums to see where my taste lies with them.

I strongly recommend that you guys visit Taiwan. The temperature is also pleasantly cool. 23-26 degrees, which translates to 73-78F.

No full casters? I'd be upset. Are all you guys relativity new to the game? I guess full caster can be hard for a low level DM.

No they are experienced players and GMs. I think the major reason is because I just did it on a whim and this isn't the first time I used a fairly high level spell slightly irresponsibly. (I used Explode head to kill one wolf...when we were fighting Orcs.)

Out of curiosity, why are they upset? Are you disrupting the game by bamfing off to the celestial realm constantly? In which case, you should probably stop that. Or are they mad because you use plane shifting to overcome obstacles? In which case, they could just ban plane shifting spells.

I dunno about CONSTANTLY...but this is like my second time in the planes. The first time was as the paladin when we still had our assimar oracle of life. But since I went Shaman...and we now have 7th level spells. (NOT A LOT! But you know...access and such)...I just felt like with the shaman who wanted to a) help and b) didn't much care for humans and cities... This worked for him. Also when I've had other casters (mostly my drow wizard who was afraid of hippos ...and that's about it) they tend to wonder about my planning...


1 person marked this as a favorite.

That's weird, given that you need a planar key as a focus component to travel to a specific plane. Seems like that is completely within the GM's control...


2 people marked this as a favorite.

quibble,

The GM didn't read the spell component part and doesn't always read up on all the books he has available to him. So basically I gots tuning forks.

Tsk tsk. I always strive to know the game better then my players so I don't get curve balls.

Besides, there is no listed gold piece value for the tuning forks, so all you need is a spell component pouch or the Eschew Materials feat, and you're covered.


Hmm you know I never thought about eschew materials getting you around that but their is really no reason that it shouldn't.

QUIBBLE TIME!

*shuffles side to side in what could be a dance move, if you’re generous*

Eschew Materials specifically lets you ignore material components, not focus components.

Also, while the magic chapter DOES say to assume any focus components of negligible cost are in your pouch, the spell component pouch descriptor says anything that “wouldn’t fit” in a pouch aren’t included (regardless of cost). A GM could reasonably rule that, given the potentially infinite number of planes/demiplanes, keys for each would not fit in a pouch.

Xiongde temple at Tianxiang

View from Baiyang Trail part 2

Water Curtain cave entrance

We back tracked as we were neither equipped with a flashlight(mine wasn't powerful enough, even a cellphone did a better job) nor wet weather gear.

Note about the Baiyang Waterfall trail:

Baiyang Waterfall (2.2 km/1.2miles) (round trip 4 km/2.4miles)
Seven hundred meters up the highway from Tianxiang is a tunnel carved into the cliff at the roadside. The tunnel is about 380 meters long, and the trail continues from the far end. An hour walk brings you to Baiyang Waterfall. This trail exhibits splendid examples of the geology and morphology of the marble gorge. The path is wide and well maintained with a comfortable pavilion near the waterfall. Shuilien Tunnel, beyond Baiyang Waterfall, is closed. Please do not enter.(This section of river is the main Liwu River; the section of river the highway follows out from Tianxiang is only a tributary).(Please bring a flash light.)

Chang Chun Shrine

Unfortunately the trail to Chang Chun shrine was closed due to maintenance.

I appreciate the rules lawyering of that.

Well that's mighty kind of you, neighbor. I'm just a simple country rules lawyer who doesn't understand all this fuss and muss about fancy big city plane shifting, but I do like to think I've got some honest down-home quibblin to contribute to the discussion.

Most of it is frosted, so you can't look down anyway, the problem is with the bees that are attracted to you for some god knows what reason and keep buzzing around you. And you can't snack them since if you do, as they die they will release a chemical that attracts more bees to attack you.

And that's Ascension 13 completed with Ironclad.

I just spent my day eating all kinds of weird stuff in Taiwan.

Ate:
Live jumping shrimp out of a cup. To the amazement from the locals who were expecting me to be squeamish. Eh, I'm not and besides after a morning of walking and biking, I was really hungry, so...

Smelly tofu

And a barbecued quail.

The white sand made the mountain look like it was covered in ash from the further back picture. Very interesting. The glass floors are cool sometimes slippery but the heights thing never bothered me but I am prone to tripping.

So you eat the shrimp live? Don't you get all the gross bits that way? (intestinal tract etc. )

Silence is giving me the most trouble. I think I need to be more defensive.


Lots of defense and poison works for me. But it's not easy.


gran rey de los mono wrote:

I almost had one it was looking good had the artifact that gives you free shurkens and increases the damage as well as the one that adds more poison. The card that give poison on hit so I was rocking it untill the last boss was the $%^& time snail.


I usually don't bother with shivs too much. I may take one Infinite Blades so that I have a little offense. Otherwise, I prefer to remove all Strikes, get good defense gain (Footwork is nice), get a Noxious Fumes or two, and a couple of Catalysts. A Corpse Explosion can be pretty helpful, too.


As for artifacts, the Snecko Skull is good (+1 poison) and the Specimen is also nice (transfers the poison from a dead enemy to a live one).

It was working pretty well for most of it. I was killing things the first round between them and the two exhaust 0 cost damage cards that I had. Most things died the first or second turn. The other thing that helped was the artifact that gives you a free buffer.

I do like catalyst I once got the statue head to like 900 or so poison using 2 of them.

Yeah, Catalyst+ is great, especially if combined with the card that says "The next Skill you play this turn is played twice." That means you spend 2 energy to multiply an enemy's poison by 9.

yeah you just have to get a bit on them before hand to make it worth it. I don't know if the silent or the defect is more combo-ie.

The shrimp were very small. Maybe about the length of one section of your thumb for the bigger ones. Besides the BBQ quail? I ate the crispy head, including the brains. I don't have much eating finesse to begin with (waste not want not) and if I'm hungry, any semblance of good manners flies out of the window. Believe me, after a mix of walking and biking in the morning and walking half an afternoon, I was definitely hungry.

I was worried if the shrimp were bigger and started jumping, the sharp ridge on their heads might poke the roof of my mouth, but they really were too small, so it was just one bite. I promise, it was really quick for those shrimps.
