Saw Inception for the first time last night and thought it was every bit as good as everyone's said it was. Quite surprised that the folding city scene was at the beginning instead of being a climactic scene as implied in the trailers. My only quibble is that while the flashforward/flashback opening worked well structurally, it muffled the emotional punch of the final act. But that might be just me getting a bit sick of how often modern media seem to use the "Well, shit's hit the fan; here's how it all happened" version of in media res.

Zimmer's score for the movie was exceptional, and I love the stark cinematography of the arctic level

At the moment if anything it's going to be a sense motive check

For those of you who watch Agents of SHIELD on some form of delay (like I do...) and haven't yet seen this week's episode... go watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier first. The events of this weeks episode make numerous references to things that happen in the movie, including one of the biggest WHAM reveals.

Absolutely seconded. Especially fans of Agent Sitwell.

Zuul's flying at half speed -- ie, regular Drake speed of 40'. No need to tip the hat to whatever these are just yet that she's faster than she looks. Whe she gets in effective shouting range, she'll call out to them in draconic. Something along the lines of "Hey you, what are you doing on my turf?"

How do they react to seeing Zuul coming towards them?

You eschew civilisation in favour of your more primative urges.
  • Bonus Feat: Primal Heritage
  • Animal Empathy: The disposition of all non-adversary animal NPCs is increased by 5.
  • Calling: You may gain levels as a Beastmaster or Force of Nature beginning at Career Level 4 if you meet all other prerequisites for that class.
  • Natural Menace: You gain 1 rank in Intimidate and a +1 morale bonus to all Intimidate checks. Apply this bonus rank before spending skill points.
  • Paired Skills: Each time you gain 1 or more ranks in the Notice skill, you also gain an equal number of ranks in the Survival skill. This may not increase your Survival skill beyond its maximum rank.


Species Feats

Primal Heritage
You're a throwback to what once was.
     Prerequisites: Level 1 only
     Benefit: The higher of your Constiution and Wisdom increases by 1, you gain a number of additional sensory increments equal to the number of species feats you possess, and you benefit from an additional food and drink per day. When taking the Basic Skill Mastery feat you have access to a new skill pair: Pursuer (Athletics & Survival). However, you may only posses a number of weapon proficiencies and fortes equal to your Intelligence modifier, minimum 1 (the restriction does not apply to tricks and advanced actions).

Primal Legacy
Grrrrr.
     Prerequisites: Primal Heritage
     Benefit: The lower of your Strength and Wisdom increases by 1, and your threat range when attacking standard animals, beasts or fae increases by 2, but your Intelligence based checks are always considered untrained.
     You may choose to surrender to your wild side once, counting your species feats as terrain feats and vice versa. If you do, your starting action dice decrease by 1 and the starting disposition of characters that aren't animals beasts towards you worsens by 10.

Of course they have flyers on their side, Zuul sighs inwardly, then starts propelling herself upwards towards them.

Balin!Janus's irises flash green for a moment in primal irritation.

"Weak," she mutters -- still in the fiendish tongue -- as she shakes her head, turning away. "You worry about the trees when you should be concerned about the forest."

There's been a good deal of talk that given the events of Iron Man 3, Rhodes has a nontrivial chance of taking Tony's place on the front line roster for Avengers 2.

What are they doing about it?
44  Community / Play-by-Post / Re: [Playtest by Post] Siege of the Freehold - Characters and discussion on: April 09, 2014, 06:23:57 AM
Are they aware of Zuul?

There was simply no way I wasn't going to adore this version of the Falcon.

Yeah, the moment he introduced himself as Pararescue I knew you'd like him.

I also appreciate that they don't try and slap you in the head over and over that he's black.
