My apologies for the delay fellow Crafty-ites:  I was out of the country for work and only just got back.

Attack with bow
1d20+4 → [7,4] = (11)
Please add an AD if needed.

Damage, if it hits
1d6 → [6] = (6)

Initiative, cause we'll need it at some point.
1d20+1 → [12,1] = (13)

Can Lars make it to cover near what look like a rock near AH/AI - 88/89?  If so, he'll move to get off the owl and let it attack/vanish as required.

EDIT: no, Nis bow shots don't tend to do that well (present damage excluded).  Can he close with one or more of the guards?

I'm away from my books at the moment; however, could we make wands as a once per scene spell effect (Fireball I) that has the "Must be a Mage to use" prerequisite tag on them?

In other words, what is the concern?  Too many fireballs?  Want the opportunity to fail?  Resources (a la no free spellpoints)?

If Rock, Paper, Shotgun's to be believed, this was originally a MLP game, but Hasbro elbow dropped that idea.  It's got good music, at least.

Given that I just watched Rarity kick Applejack's ass, I'm inclined to say they are to be believed.

Blue theme, ice (gems), terms like "Fabulous" (excuse me, "Fabulastic") when attacks hit, and a "I look amazing and I know it" vibe is definitely Rarity.
Bandanna, red circles (apples?), country vibe?  Yep, Applejack.

If I've been following this correctly, Lars should have the veil since he's on the roof ... or will be once the oversized owl puts him down.

Edited to add:
Did I mention how much fun is has been reading the "The Adventures of Murdering Plant Lady?"  Seriously, this is the stuff movies are made of.

I find it amazing that we can still argue/debate the meaning of these movies more than a decade later.

But, also, very fun that we can do it.

At least Canada stuck with Death + 50.  We're basically dealing with Infinity + 1 here in the US.
I thought here in the US it was "Products created more than X years ago" where X is equal to the number of years since Disney was founded.

Functionally the same thing once you pass the founding of Disney because I don't see them EVER letting go of that damn mouse.

IIRC the Navy found women to be disruptive to ship crews until they are 30% of the crew.

Read as: Men in the Navy do not react properly to the presence of women unless forced to.

Yes and no.  Take any minority and make it small enough and there will always be those who will treat the minority poorly.  (Not just men, it's a sad human condition.)  Once the minority reaches some critical level (depends on both the environment and the minority) folks tend to behave as civilized people should.

We, as people, have a long way to go before we can truly say that humanity is civilized.  What we currently call civilization is a fairly thin veneer that's about 9 meals thick.

Heard this on Steampunk After Dark, and decided that it would make a most excellent song for the radio in a Fallout game - The Deepest Shelter in Town (WWII semi-smut.)

The Auld Grump

*EDIT* Steampunk After Dark - kinda... raunchy, semi-steampunk music. With drink recipes.

No innuendo at all in those ...   Roll Eyes

I actually like slight slower PbP as my work schedule tends to drift from slack to "umm, what day is it again?" with alarmingly little notice.

So, we have overly intelligent birds.  Lovely.  Are Lars and Co. still flying to the keep or did this happen "first" in narrative land?

Got a few hours in with Shadowrun: Hong Kong, and so far the verdict is very good. It looks like it's improved over Dragonfall much in the same way Dragonfall was improved over Dead Man's Switch; fixed some issues, smoothed over some rough edges, and added in a lot of new stuff. If you liked the previous games, no reason not to get Hong Kong.

Just wrapped up my first play-through of Shadowrun: Hong Kong.  I completely agree with Antilles assessment on the improvement.  My only quibble is that I can't ambush things in the Matrix like you can in meat space.  The story is well written and I found the ending satisfying.  It might have been a little easier than Dragonfall or perhaps I've played enough of this type of game that I'm better at it.  (Sure, we'll go with that.)

I have a review of the game on my to-do list so I may update my post later.

Lars readies his bow and nocks an arrow to the string.  When the beast appears he smiles.  "May we be the might of Asmodeus upon feathered wings who shall bring death to his enemies."  He stretches forth his arms to make it easier for the owl to grab him.

*Lars pokes head through fourth wall and reads OOC thread.*

"Trust in Asmodeus' might.  It'll be fine."

I never really thought Shadowrun's combat was that deadly. 

You obviously didn't have my college GM.  He took a great sense of pride in making runs difficult.  (Not for the sake of difficulty mind you.)  If you were breaking into a top secret Ares research facility that officially didn't exist, expect the hammer to be dropped, quickly follow by the anvil and the forge.

Still had fun though.

Shadowrun game, players make a token effort at sneaking and talking, then the assault cannons and combat magic come out.

I did much better when I was running a one-one-one (didn't start that way) PbP game over on the Dumpshock forums.  Too bad my work schedule crawled all up in the middle of it...  Cry

I had the weirdest experience on my first selectable run.

No combat at all.

What's HBS thinking?!

That yer doin' yer run right?

While that is what people say, I have never seen a Shadowrun game work like that in reality.

I had one ... run like that, but only one.

So, who's going to say it?

"All aboard the crazy chaos death-train!"
