GM:
Nothing from Samuel.  And he hasn't been on since the 21st, a week ago.  His last post, October 4th.

Well, he has time to come back if he gets interested again.  Right now, I'll continue with the players who ARE posting - that's everyone else at the moment.


You're a little premature. :P

In reply to Giovanna D'Agostino (msg # 768):

Yer still beating me.  I just can't grab the few minutes I need to IC post (either here or in Siriel's game).

I suppose it would be a tiny bit quicker if I ever posted on an actual keyboard rather than a phone, but mostly it's thinking time.

Work is frickin' crazy at the moment.

And now I turn out to be a liar, couldn't finish my exam in time so any post I'd make would be rushed.

Totally understood, Vilhelm.  ;)  No worries.

Great posts, everyone.  Now I'm behind, thanks to a rather busy week.  I'll be posting here today or tomorrow - please everyone (but Vilhelm!) hold off for a short bit, as Ambrose should get a reply in here.

I'm not sure what else to reply except Vilhelm repeating that he'll think on it.:(

But I'm rather tired today. Maybe I'll think of something tomorrow.

I've started one offline a couple of days ago, but not got very far yet because... stuff.  Lots of stuff.

It probably isn't going to be very enlightening though, so s'up to you.  :(

Sorry.  I'm going to be really flaky for the next two weeks.  After that though, I'm golden..... until the next debacle at work.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
Okay, sounds good.  I'll see if Serafyna posts, and Giovanna, and then I'll probably move things along.

All of your characters have had a trying day and are quite likely quite weary, barring those with with the right Ki abilities.  :D

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
I might be getting Dominus Exxet and Arcana Exxet in English today, finally. Do they have any extra goodies that the core rule book doesn't?

Err...the entire books are new, basically.

Dominus has a far better system to create techniques.

Arcana has a...not so awesome new way to use spells.

But both introduce a lot of new options from bloodlines to new ways to summon and such. Dominus' options are pretty much all cool, Arcana less so.

(It's not that Arcana is an awful expansion or anything, except for some overpowered things. It's just that Dominus is really, really good.)

overpowered is the BEST!! :P

But then it should come as no surprise I think so.

A few new paths (that aren't bad; mostly Magneto and Teleportation) and options (that suck) in Arcana.

Exactly.

If Giovanna wants to learn how to become a human railgun (which for a blind person could potentially be quite hazardous to her teammates), Magnetism is pretty cool.  Teleportation too, as Vilhelm notes.

But ignore Psychic Inclinations.  They suck donkey balls.  There is literally nothing to redeem them from suckitude.

From a magic point of view, there's some... interesting... stuff.

Metamagic is ludicrously OP in places, but then you also realise that after you've bought all the Metamagic you want, you'd have no ML left to buy... you know... actual spells.

The stuff on Familiars and particularly Sheele is quite cool.

And some of the Sub-Paths of Magic are a lot of fun (but again... horribly OP - seriously, check out Nobility and Literature - ridonkulous).

But the real winners in Arcana are Summoners.  Especially those who focus on Invocations (and in Arcana, also Incarnations).

Still... as a book it's not as good as Dominus, because... Dominus.  Awesomeness Exxet, is what it should really be called.  None of the Exxet books are much use to Ardelyn though (unless she really picks up her Forging skills for Prometheum Exxet).  Weaponmasters are totally screwed by this point.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
I've just realised roughly how many months it is since I even opened the Anima books.

When work calms down a bit, I am TOTALLY going to start spam-creating characters.

Not ENTIRELY accurate.

True. You need a ridiculous amount f INT if you're going to delve into it.

You'd think it'd be death or Blood or Sin or something, but no. Lit and Nobility are the OP. :P
