Whelp, this is a thing now.  We're probably going to get a different LEGO movie every year now, until people get SICK AND TIRED of them.

... I hope they do Alien Conquest.  It's, like, the one set I'm still kicking myself over missing.  Though considering that it only lasted one year, I somehow doubt it. :(

Lars bows to Janus and then replies in Infernal.  His raised eyebrow doesn't show through the cowl.  "Good.  Then we should continue to work with him.  The key is not military might but godly cooperation."

He nods toward Zikomo as well.

Hi there!

Maybe this is of some interest to the people in this forum, a new spy game Cold Shadows. So far it's funded, with a few stretch goals related to developing sections based on different cities around the world, and a possible extra campaign in the horizon....
To ease the need for spy goods until SC3 appears...

Edited: Fixed the link, sorry  ::)

"The subhuman was merely in my way. Had I wanted him dead he would be dead. I won't answer any more of your stupid questions. Untie me and I might be merciful on you."
Her eyes glazed suddenly over and the violet light enlarged for a moment.
When she spoke again it was as if a different person was in the room:
"Ah, another of the mechanical men. But a later model of foreign make. No matter. Kung's tin soldiers couldn't stop me and neither will you. I'll give you a fair chance to leave this island and you might avoid destruction. So, if you don't mind, I'll take this vessel back to me, where she can serve me better..."

Suddenly a small bead of flame appeared between the eyes of the captive, rising two feet above her, while her bound form began to shimmer

You are witnessing a form of Scrying where the caster can not only project his senses but also cast spells through the sensor.
You are seeing a delayed Fireball II and a Teleport I spell enacted

My scene lengths vary considerably depending on the narrative needs at hand, but in the immediate scenario I'm going from one long scene with lots of traveling to another. The thing is, the party is presently escorting the NPC in question through dangerous territory, so they're together pretty much around the clock. There isn't really much opportunity at the moment for getting distance and perspective on the matter, for anyone involved.

Maybe I'll split the difference and have Disposition from uses of Charming fade right away, but from Impress checks stick at least until there's some separation...

(Practically speaking, it doesn't make too much of a difference in the particular situation I'm dealing with right now. This is just two players deciding to create a love triangle Subplot over a minor NPC with no actual influence or relevance to the major challenges/goals of the campaign. But I'd like to keep consistent with the way I'll be handling Disposition mechanics throughout the campaign. My players are all fairly new to the system, and the campaign will feature a considerable amount of diplomacy later, so I'm basically taking advantage of this as an opportunity to give those players a tutorial of sorts in Disposition mechanics.)

The Magos was unfazed by the woman's threats.

"We do not intend to rob you. We came looking for a map, assuming all survivors of your expedition had died, including yourself, but clearly you are not dead. Please, tell me the tale of your expedition. What is the last thing that you remember before waking up on the stone slab? And what happened after you woke up? Why did you attack the dwarf?"

Talking patiently in a low voice without breaking eye contact, Megaros managed to get the woman to stop straining against her bound and gag.
When he finally removed it, she was calm enough to look directly at him. Her eyes where completely black with only a violent pinpoint in the middle, pulsing like a heartbeat. He could almost feel the hatred radiating from her like a furnace.
Her voice was raspy and lacked any kind of melody when she said:
"Don't you dare to take anything from my stash. I'll kill you. I'll kill you all."

If you want to calm her down, you'll have to succeed on a calming check vs. DC 22 (Medicine)
