Ludo, could you condense your mechanics posts into a single 'sheet' post so I can make sure I got it all?

Tor in Falcon's Hollow: Not quite clear. Urgings from the Lucky Drunk? Whispers from a Twilight Talon? Maybe a drunken dare... maybe from an attractive woman in blue ribbons and... wings? Maybe it's time to lay off the absinth Tor...

Understood.  I'm at work at present; when I get off, I should have time to post the updated character sheet. *fingers crossed*  This is our busiest time of the audit.

For Tor ....
His first act as a priest (the night he became one) was a rant about the dangers of debt and the slavery of coin.  Perhaps he's passing through to preach a few sermonettes at the local pubs.  (Undoubtably, this will rile up some folks working for the loggers.)

Feel free to have a drunken vision of the "attractive woman in blue ribbons and wings" if that's important in some way.

Smiling and patting his mace, Lars adds, "Though I prefer to smash things myself."

You're not the first and wingwill not be the last to post a personal obituary Rus.
My deepest condolences.
And mine.

Page 282: Tarasque
You lose, good game.  TPK.  There is only one thing to do against the tarasque, run.  run and do not stop.  If the GM wants to give the players the middle finger, this is the creature to do it with.  In FC the tarasque is Beast Type, making it a person, but like the hydra, it is a pretty stupid person.  The tarasque is insanely hard to hurt, and even when you do hurt it, the damage heals up next tun thanks to its insane Regeneration 40!  Criticals are impossible with most weapons and the few that can still have to get though eight grades of Tough.  Also, magic is pretty much useless and has a very good chance of backfiring thanks to Spell Defense and Spell Reflection.  Assuming you are facing a Special tarasque, and not Standard, the only option I see that has any real possibility is Subdual or Stress Damage.  Yes, its Resilience X means it will make the saves most of the time, but once it has a grade of Fatigue or Shaken, it will not go away, and over time you might be able to knock it out.
Strikes me as a bit much of an opponent for FC.
But it does live up to the reputation of being a living apocalypse ...

FCC is set to make Internet a Title 2 Utility.
The Feds may follow the law as written and indended...  There goes innovation.

Sarcasm, Militia Jim?
If not, what's your thinking?

Devil's advocate.  We have Comcast, TWC, Charter and Cox communications leading the way for ISPs.  I'm not sure we were getting much innovation to begin with.

I'll probably grab consecrate in the not so distant future (when Creamor's wisdom rises), but if you need it sooner, I can grab it on my next level up (I'd probably have to retrain Infernal to Alignment: Asmodeus)

I appreciate it; however, thematically, Lars will need to pick up that ability at some point. Being an Asmodean priest and all.
37  Community / Play-by-Post / Re: [OOC] Way of the Wicked on: February 25, 2015, 07:38:00 AM
ludo: without access to the Consecrate spell, you'll have to do it the old-fashioned way, preferably with an altar or symbol of Asmodeus present but certainly a sacrifice of something valuable to Asmodeus. In this case, the priest or the Archon would, ironically, do nicely.
Ironically, that makes sense. Any chance Lars would know if the Archon can leave the church?

@ Krensky

Take whatever time you need to heal. A back injury is nothing you want to rush, speaking from experience.

Mages ...  As part of the whisper invocation, Lars says, "Very well.  As we are bound together, I will rely on the Knot to keep me alive and serving our prince on this side of mortality."

"Uhm... I've ridden on horses from time to time, how much worse could a giant flying owl be?"
Upon hearing his comments, Lars blanches slightly, remembering the last time he was thrown from a horse.  "Uh, will these mounts have saddles?  Is there a way to glue myself to them?  I have much more service to grant our lord and do not wish to be introduced to an unfamiliar piece of ground at high speed."

Traveling for business. I would have thought Japan had better internet access. (Granted I'm in the middle of an industrial town.) Hope to post this evening.

For IC reasons Lars will be trying to figure out how to defile the church / consecrate a spot to Asmodeus so that he can deal with the Archon without dying - or at least even the field a bit.

Happy to use the bow but that range seems excessive.

A Bluff check will do.

Posted IC.

After the conversation ends, the laborer!Lars gathers the papers and letters and heads for the gate of the keep.  As he nears the gate, a soldier asks, "What business have you here?"  Keeping himself a tad hunched over, Lars says, "Delivery for Captain Mott.  I was told it's urgent and should be delivered to him and him alone."

After a second he adds, "Should I wait here or can I pass the letter on?  I have no desire to be holding sensitive information that goes to our defenders."

He can have both, but you need to pick which is the favored weapon before play.

Thanks.  I'll stick with the rapier only.  He'll still have the tankard just not for battle.

I feel that GM'ing anything for my kids makes me a better GM.  They tend to throw things out that most adults wouldn't do and then you have to react to that.

Me = Me
G = My then 8 year old son playing Regdar from the WotC 3.5 beginner's box.

Me: Ok, so Regdar comes around the corner and is face to face with a lizard man who stinks really bad.
G: Um... I run away.
Me: O.o
Me: Are you sure?  I think you can take this guy.
G: Nope.  I'm outta here.  It's dark and spooky and the stinky-lizard man might hurt me.
Me (after a moment of thought): That's entirely reasonable.

That game needs conflict so it derails without it.  Now, with Little Wizards, I've had to think outside the box on more than one occasion.

Me = Me
M = My then 4 year old daughter.  (Almost five.)

Me: Your friend's cat ran away.  What do you do?
M: Go find it.
Me: How?
M: I'll cast a spell so I can talk to my cat.  (Her familiar.)  (Rolls and ends up with a complication; decided that she can talk to animals but not people.)
Me: (Now playing two cats, a dog, a bird and very confused people who are hearing her bark, meow and squak.)
M: You're funny daddy.

It was awesome!
