Sure, nobody's hands were clean.

Edit: any cheap shots at Lincoln's character though are unwarranted. The man was POTUS; was his "logical" choice to let the US be torn apart and hope there wasn't constant warfare between them? Or that England, France, Mexico, or whoever wouldn't have gotten about gobbling up the easier to chew and swallow pieces?
Lincoln was out to preserve the Union at all costs.  He is on record as writing, "If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that."  That's not a pretty thought, no matter how you slice it.  To have upheld that States were sovereign, was to give up on the Union.  To crush the States was to ignore the 10th Amendment.  No way to win that one.  Lincoln chose the Union.

Hopefully we can learn from history and not make so many stupid mistakes in the future.

Knowledge Check for Lars.  (Though Creamor's description will suffice if he fails.)
Lars may have been sleeping through that lecture.  Result = 17

Also, is Lars still present since he wanted to do some investigation?

But it's now obvious why going to the chapel would have been a horrible idea.

The Patchwork Cloak
This old cloak appears well worn, and though patched, well cared for.  Upon closer inspection, the patches appear to be various animals native to the area.  If worn while traveling, the patches and color will eventually change to match the terrain and animals present in the area.  This helps hide the wearer.  What makes it sought after by many is that in a time of need a patch can be ripped off and thrown to the ground.  The patch becomes the animal it represents and protects the wearer of the cloak until slain or for five minutes whichever occurs first.  Alternately, the owner can summon an appropriate mount subject to the same limitations.  Over time the patches seem to reappear.

Cloak (0 DR)
Lesser Essence: NPC Quality (Chameleon I)
Special - terrain benefit granted changes provided the character wears the cloak and travels until his own power.  Otherwise, the cloak can't shift quickly enough.
Lesser Charm: Spell Effect (Nature's Ally I)
Users choice of animal.  If no animal is specified, roll a d6.  On a 1, a mount is summoned; on 2-3, an avian is summoned and on 4-6, a predator is summoned.

Reputation: 8 = 6 (Chameleon I) + 2 (Level 1 spell x 2 uses)

While I'd like to defend Shadowrun ....

I bought a copy of 2nd Edition on a whim a while back and it ... well, it is amazing that we were able to play at all back then.

But that sweet, sweet meta-plot.

IC post updated per discussion.

Personally I can honestly say that if I must play D20 at all so do I strongly prefer D&D and that heavily due to its extreme level of choices
Extreme level of choices? Have you been reading FC? Actually I got people almost "complaining" that you got too many choices Tongue

I have read it and I stick with that there are extremely few choices with heavily geared towards classes.

Then, perhaps, FC is not your game.  No worries in that, mate.  Play what you enjoy and enjoy the time with friends.  Thanks for giving FC a look.

Ah, I was thinking the cathedral was in town, not at the watch tower.

Yeah, his plan doesn't make so much sense.  I'll edit IC to something more appropriate when I get some free time today (and enough brain space to think about what he'd be doing en lieu of going).

ludo: You're going as the priest, or someone else?

Someone else. Going for random denizen of the area.

Lars excuses himself from breakfast and tries to think of an appearance other than his own that would be suitable for drawing near to the cathedral.  Thinking to himself, he wonders, "What secrets are hidden within the cathedral?  Why was I warned not to enter?  Knowledge is power and I am lacking at the moment."  Finally, he remembers that this small burg doesn't hold the cathedral but rather the watch tower does so.  "That rather complicates things," he says softly to the air in his room.  After thinking a bit, he decides to use his Mitran Priest persona and walk around the village collecting information.  He spends some time adjusting his clothing and attitude before leaving.

I guess Lars will slip on his crown and accompany Creamor without actually entering being by his side and definitely not entering the cathedral.

I love that guy.  First heard him back on the Dr. Demento Show.

Quite cool.  Wonder what the military is up to?

Pretty, but I'm not sure I understood anything in that trailer.

Sensing rising hostilities Lars joins the conversation, "Leona, you have reservations.  That I can see.  I may not understand them myself but you wish to keep our secret and that is enough for now.  Go, run off some steam if you must.  We will honor your request to do no additional planning in your presence ... for now."  Looking toward the flames of the hearth, Lars prays silently, "Purge weakness from the Knot that it may serve."

If you want to be all future like, you can make your not auto weapons use caseless ammunition.  Well, everything except machine guns really.  Machine guns run into heat trouble, brass is used in shell casings to take heat out of the weapon.

Could you use other metals?  Perhaps aluminum?

snip STUFF

I was referring to the casing rather than the round.  Specifically, the heat removal capabilities.  We use aluminium at home to defrost meat because it conducts heat very well.  Not sure how it would interact with the heat from a gun.  What about other metals?
