This is fantastic advice.  Most of it my 2nd Edition GM did without breaking a sweat.  Hell, it's not bad advice for any game with a modern bent.

Looks good to me.

I'm willing to give it a whirl; however, in the interest of full disclosure, I'm going to functionally disappear in August due to heavy deadline driven work.  If that concerns anyone, please feel free to find another and I'll watch from the sidelines when able.

Lars smiled, moreso inwardly.  He thought, "A devil with a conscious?  Interesting.  A weakness perhaps?"

Lars adds, "Indeed, the path to greatest power does not necessarily go through violence.  She is a blunt tool, but still must be wielded with care."

Latest trailer for Star Wars Rebels

I am of course going to watch this, but the focus on force users saddens me greatly.
Very interesting.  I'm not sure what to make of the focus on force users.  I really liked the focus on the clones in Clone Wars but it's been done.  Smugglers?

Well, it does have a certain finality to it.  Though, I fear it would rouse suspicions and cause them to send for reinforcements in addition to more ravens.  Could we pick the ravens off?

Much truth.  Much sadness.

Wow!  You guys did a lot while I slept and went to work.  Um, I can't really add a lot to the planning stage right now.  I can however, give my opinion.

If we use enraging potion as the opening salvo and release some devils, it should help tremendously.

Taking out the roving captain is a great idea but unless we borrow a mass of bugbears, we won't be able to take out the whole column which may prove problematic as they would know they were under attack.  Even using the bugbears is problematic for the same reasons.

The ravens seem to be the worst of it.  That's the nut I think we should be trying to crack.

After a few pleasant, but ultimately, worthless conversations, Lars happens to notice Janus in her guise heading back to the inn.  He follows and participates in the discussion.

He vaguely remembers something about celestials that appear as balls of light  but when Creamor names them Lantern archons, he can recall the lecture a bit better.  I was a boring one giving by a balding priest who never could remember the names of the young priests.  "Well that explains my premonition," he mumbles.

Smiling, Lars adds, "I think I know a thing or two about desecrating Mitran shrines.  And, I'd be happy to tell the floating servants of the Usurper where they could go."

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.
