The Ultimate Warrior

The Ultimate Freaking Warrior, at age 54.

The rest of the internet's days, ya hear me.

Echo that.
His forays into political talk radio were appalling, but fuck that the man had tremendous ring presence and epic intensity.
Rage In Perpetuity, Ultimate Warrior.
Often imitated, never equaled.

So....I believe in being fiscally rational, in the necessity of long-term investments that produce national security across far more then just military lines.
But then someone has to say, "hey Val, how do you feel about 23lbs projectiles that travel at mach 7? Five-thousand miles-per-hour, give or take?"
And I can't escape replying "fuck yeah, Railguns!"

Just the FIREBALLS OF MOLTEN STEEL produced during firing are amazingly sexy. That's not even getting into the 32 megajoules of muzzle energy.

Quote from: Rear Admiral Bryant Fuller
Current projectiles leaving a railgun have a muzzle energy of about 32 megajoules of force, said Rear Admiral Bryant Fuller, the Navy's chief engineer. He said one megajoule would move a one-ton object at about 100 mph.

What's the Craft die rating on that much oomph? 50d20, AP 2000? =D

I love schools. Robust economic investment. Infrastructure upgrades!
But goddamnit man -Railguns!

Leona is myeh. Not a big deal either way.

*I do defend the Fourth Edition of ToG as having handily conquered the Linear/Quadratic class conundrum, if in an unconventional fashion.
There was, and remains, quite a bit to like there in stead of Finding a Path back to the same deficiencies and dilemmas and pretending that as long as you're still playing in the single digit levels you're in fact having more fun making basic melee attacks 1/round and struggling with your pitiful handful of skill points.

In the 3.X edition of ToG* I played a Cleric, but what I was really aiming at was far more like the Paladin. Yeah I healed and buffed and built stone fortifications, but my real role was as the party's conscience. I was the voice of right and wrong, and the reminder that taking the easy way out wasn't nearly as satisfying as limping home with every loose end sewn up tight.

I was also goddamn fragile with an absurd Will save and nothing else protecting my d6 hit dice (Prestige Class).

I had zero interest in being CoDZilla. I wanted to be the moral center and the supportive backbone; I wanted the enemies who spent their last seconds being reaved into chunks by the roaring berzerkers to know that they died in the service of the Lifemother -I asked them to surrender nicely for rehabilitation, I didn't give up when they started laughing, and when they started shooting we got around to doing The Goddess's Will that other way, so thanks for playing and I'll pray for you a little later.

More precisely we're going to spread a little Love and Life on a wave of Cleave attacks and Purge It With Prayer. The emphasis on community stabilization and survivor reconciliation follows. Finally we get to the important post-victory "Raise Ya Glasses, Shake Ya Asses" recovery phase, and the next morning when we sleep off the Hangover of the Just I'll get around to offering thoughts for the souls of them who refused to understand the errors of their evils and were subsequently blasted into meat puddles for their ignorance.
Probably.
Maybe.
The Goddess likes community outreach and good works more than she worries about the souls of the wicked, you know?
So really I'd be doing you a favor, and with what you've been up to here I feel a little uncomfortable helping you out.
Still, it could happen....eventually. Cool

Or like a Thorium molten-salt reactor, which do not melt down -if breached the cascading effects naturally self-neutralize and become inert.

Much as I like the ideas, I think I'm with Morg on this one: no need for powerplants to automatically be atomic bombs waiting to go off.
I file that under tropes like neural feedback interfaces also being capable of transmitting debilitating levels of pain as feedback -unless there's no alternative what's the damn point? To randomly incapacitate users mid-battle? Same with striding into fire on an atomic bomb. Acceptable in 40k, but anyone less grossly ignorant should think twice.

Sure, can do.
Leona will.

Re: Horn; correct sir.
*drool*
That 15 rep is tempting.

Leona's quite amicable to the idea of finding a way to sell the bugbear weapons to the Yutak. She's quite sure she could make something cool with it given time and materials.
I'm assuming she doesn't know about the mithril stockpile until it's explicitly mentioned.

Also the contact with them could be a later point for Drin or someone to introduce Asmodeus to the rest of the Yutak pantheon. Proselytizing isn't her department, but the idea occurs.

Basically the use of force in legal combat actions is "the Means justifying the Ends."

Morg: I had the idea for the powerplant perk "Green Power" -reduced Rep losses from powerplant detonations. Grin

Blargh.
Focus fail.
First, that Knowledge check: 1d20+5=21
Leona will then attempt to Haggle some increased value out of those tridents and coax Joseph Calls-Fire-From-Water into sweetening the deal on that horn.

Haggle: 1d20+7=17
Throwing in an AD: 1d4=1
=18.

Goddamn my luck with Action Dice is abominable. Tongue

Also I'm not finding any flavor text in myself right now. Maybe later, but go ahead as you feel.

Oh, so: idea; powerplant explosions.
Both on destruction and voluntary.

I was in this beta for a now-thrice dead RTS that had drone tanks for one of the factions called something-Fires (Wildfire? Flashfire? Can't remember -not important). These tanks exploded their ammo reserves when destroyed, and it made a nice means of kissing a tango goodbye.
I was thinking of a similar idea for a backbone remote-piloted vehicle run by a faction that had high-tech, but low population numbers and as such ran squads of these Striders from a officer unit based on tactics like running drones with short and medium range weapons up to close range, pressure the enemy constantly, and when sufficiently damaged go ka-boom.
The officers were sniper/artillery builds by comparison, designed less for mobility and more to endure being counter-pounded and ambushed. Or maybe as EW/ECW platforms. Whatevs.

Val: Ah, in that case the sailor from the first day on the island wouldn't have been quite as evasive of you, but he still wouldn't have tried anything as you butchered fishmen about as brutally as captain Kargeld.

I like to think I employed greater finesse. Wink

But good to know, no worries Antilles.

Note: Leona is disguised, by way of her circlet, as the deceased Sabrina Vilhelm.
She's been so the entire time since leaving the mansion, but this is probably the first time that's mattered.
