* Sigh.

Less is more DC, less is more.

I think they're trying to distance Leto's Joker from Ledger's as much as possible, which is understandable, but that picture is generating some serious vibes along the line of Frank Gorshin's lean manic 60s version of Riddler.

Just grab the cocktail upgrade from poisons?

So, given our deeds to date here, where does stew day -- and also, the period of the new moon when there won't actually be one -- fall?

     Eye of Sinta Clause, Least (Nuisance Outsider Spirit Flyer - 40 XP). Str 10, Dex 10, Con 10, Int 10, Wis 10, Cha 10; Sz N (1x1, Reach 0); Spd 90 ft flying; Init I; Atk I; Def I; Res I; Hlth I; Comp I; Skills: Notice X; Qualities: Blindsight, feat (mobility basics), hivemind, invisibility, mook, superior runner I.
     Attacks: None.

Moving at up to 450 ft/round, able to pass through walls, invisible. Add hivemind to another summoned devil who can keep up a running commentary as the Eye hurtles through the castle; Drin has Call from Beyond II so he can summon a linked pair of devils -- fluff it as happening through the auspices of his little pal -- if it's too much to have 2 instances of CFB I call linked npcs.

Alternatively, even a standard bottom tier advisor has the spare XP budget to pick up Scrye II

You've just gone back and put the actually useless bit of the ability back in.

From painful personal experience, average ventilation really doesn't do much to shift the stank of incense /smoke so I think that this is probably one of those irritating 'Reality is broken' things because the devs don't particularly like poison to be effectively deployed

"I can be very persuasive," Janus shrugs. "Maybe not enough to keep the Tin Lioness at our side, but that would have required her to have a spine that no words could give her. Not that I imagine she had one by the time the devil bitch was done with her, yes? Otherwise what you say is unfortunately true. If only we could get them all into a single space."

First up, yay.

Second, you're missing your prereqs for entering the class, and they're going to make Imp Cooking I essentially pointless. As a starting point:

     Requirements: Crafting 10+ ranks, Crafting Basics (Cooking), Knife Basics

The base value for max complexity is career level + crafting bonus. You'll have +10 due to career at 1st level, and as a Crafting based class ideally you're going to need a minimum of 10 levels of Crafting (which you'll probably have by level 7 if not sooner) in addition to Crafting Basics (Cooking) which increases your max by the number of gear feats. Even without factoring in attribute modifiers, that's got you 6 pts above the most complex of food items. So I'd rewrite it as follows:

     Improvised Cooking I: You ignore the limitation on maximum complexity when you make a Crafting/Improvise check to create food items. The time taken for this check depends on the GM but in most cases should require no actual Downtime. Further, at the beginning of each scene and downtime you are considered to have 50s x your starting action dice in materials appropriate to the creation of any item of food or drink. This material cannot be preserved for use beyond the current scene or downtime, but can be used by both yourself and other characters to create these items.

     Improvised Cooking II: You no longer need a cooking kit when making Crafting checks, but doing so increases the number of action dice required to activate an error by 1. Additionally, [something here].

Lost Recipes is pretty much genius on a stick, but the recover 2 points ones are pointlessly weak. PCs recover [career level] vitality per hour of rest, and bleed off a point of stress and subdual every 10 minutes. It would be better for them to increase the rate of recovery by 1 or 2 points for the next 8 hrs.

     Freegan: In fertile and harsh environments you automatically succeed on Foraging checks, and in barren environments you may roll twice and keep the result you prefer. Additionally, [something here].

Pressure Cooker is weak, Personal Methodology and Well Fed both really need... fleshing out.

"The problem lies in that I believe the stew is made at the castle," Janus begins. "My first inclination is to substitute myself for the woman who makes the stew -- easiest solution, yes? To that end, I took the opportunity to observe and interact with her when I could while most of you were off scouting this place out. I believe I have learnt her sufficiently that pretending illness will cover any flaws and enhance the fiction of the cholera. And by replacing her, being immune to things such as poisons and the pain and suffering of others means I can set the incense burning without having to worry about being affected by it."

Her bone taps the keep, the tower, and the area around the chapel. "Using the arsenic and the incense will cause maximum carnage, but that relies on both the cleric and the wizard being taken care of first, as well as the ravens. While the ravens should be easily accessible, we don't know where there are guards and patrols. A job for you magicians, yes? Send one of your little invisible devil friends to take a look around."

Would it be terrible if Dance Off, Bro worked as an instance of beguiling?

Well, there is at least one Mon Cal involved in the B-Wing project, so Ackbar may show up as well.

"Assuming the dimensions are accurate, I have enough toxic incense to fumigate the entire mess hall, the rookery, and still have some left over. Alternatively, I took enough arsenic to fake a cholera outbreak."

Bad (pause) ass!

Love the b-wing getting some screen time (and I think it was painted up in a certain punk-mandalorian's colors Smiley)

Further clips reveal it's a test vehicle painted 'black box' red being piloted by Hera, and that Sabine has changed her hair from black and orange to blue and turquoise.
