Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
I suggest that we ask who summoned it or set it to its task before we kill it.

Ancient Technology indeed!

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
Agreed. I think I've got enough mojo left for one more Kneel Before Bea! stunt, but I am very quickly running dry. I've got my Zenith aura totemic right now -- I'll need to describe that more next post -- and that'll help me some in this fight, but I still thinking the fight's going to fall mostly on you, Merlin.
Barring insane dice luck, of course.

I have this sinking feeling that my non-artifact weapons won't do anything to him and punching/kicking him will do damage to me, but what he doesn't know is that Spirit Cutting Attack augments attacks to make them Aggravated! I think I will need new chakrum after the battle with this 2nd Circle Demon.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
Am I thinking in the wrong setting, or would freely giving our names to a second circle demon be a horrible idea?

I got the Blood of the Forge thing, but I am lost on "Warden's concubine".

Do you want a Lore or Occult roll for Merlin?

10:37, Today: Merlin rolled 7 successes using 6d10 with the White Wolf Exalted system with a target of 7. Int+occ.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
Unless the demon has some sort of special power regarding names, giving names to it is harmless. Same with just about any Spirit or Exalt or even Thaumaturge. Names are mostly just words, unless something has been done to specifically lend them significance. (For instance, an Eclipse Oath might lend one significance regarding the oath-taker's actions; perhaps they swear never to hear it (bad idea), or to obey the person who rightfully holds it, or to never speak it, or...)

Or someone casts it into Oblivion, in which case speaking it builds Resonance. :p

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
...kind of tempted to just off him right now anyway. Not sure what we could possibly gain from talking to him.
...unless we can convince him to go poison the beastmen and leave our lands alone. But no, that'd be a pretty awful thing to do regardless.

Its a 20 Minute drive into town to get internet. My in-laws are out to. I am a McDonalds posting this. Don't expect much activity from me for the near future.

I will drive again on Thursday to actually post.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
Wow. That's some serious commitment. :D

And alright. I don't mind waiting, as long as I've got the heads-up (otherwise I start to worry). I've decided I'm going to try to lean a thing or three from this guy before the fight anyway; like, what other towns has he poisoned? That might be good to know.

I have a feeling he showed up due to what was happening.

Anyways, the inlaws have a new piece of equipment that allows them to bounce a signal off a tower nearby.....so I will have access daily, but not at home in the air conditioning with my much more powerful tower PC.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
Apologies for the slow response to the action-packed scene. I've had no time to crunch numbers this week. I hope to correct that tonight and tomorrow, and get something up either tonight or tomorrow.

We now have a 1-1 repeater that bounces the signal down to our place from the Inlaws. I finally, after 1.5 months of crap, can sit in my own place and type this out.

Are we doing Ticks or Round Robbin?

Also, did we upgrade to 2.5 or did we stay at 2.0?

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
In reply to Merlin (msg # 345):

I am treating it as round robin for now, but do not mind shifting to ticks at any point. Ticks can be tricky to run in PbP, but I fully understand that some builds exploit the tick system and are harmed if it is ignored. So let me know if you feel you need them.

And we're still at 2.0, because 2.5 upgrading is even more mechanically crunchy and unless we get into a situation that is degenerate under 2.0, I don't think it worth the effort. Again, however, if there are pleas from the players to make the change, we can.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!

Waitwaitwait... what?

When I started I remember asking and getting the answer that we are using 2.5

That's why I have no Combos, and I've used at least two Charms at once without them multiple times by now. O.o


No problem with rounds rather than ticks. Unless someone can consistently go at speed 3, going twice for each action of someone at speed 6, it doesn't make much of a difference within a normal combat's timespan anyway.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
Well, 2.0 combos are clearly degenerate. So we're using the 2.5 rules on them instead. ;)

That's my answer and I'm sticking to it. (Although I am by no means the ST.)

Well, if that is the case then Merlin is about to use a COMBO and make old Forge here HURT.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
...2.5 didn't do away with combos, IIRC.

Let us continue as we have been, for now, and if it causes problems, we'll revisit it.

It just made combo's things you can do for 1WP, instead of having to pay a nice load of XP and prior training to do.
