Dispel magic would work, as it is not a curse but a critical success on a spell of Insignificance.

Insignificance is resisted by Perception not Will... so it's possible some people might have had an easier (or harder) time resisting it... (Jednesa is unaffected, her Will and Per are equal).

So are ours.  That's the default condition, after all.

Masugatan and Christine weren't made using Templates...  and by 'default' you mean just Bards, Clerics, Druids, Knights, and Swashbucklers that didn't spend any Advantage points to boost one?  Also note Barbarian, Holy Warriors, Martial Artists, Scouts, Thieves, and Wizards all 'default' to having differing Will and Per as per template.

Christine Bjorn:
Dragonbone is also notably absent from the charts as well, but I believe it is identical to Orichalcum but +24 CF. This is all correct?

Follow up note... you cannot make bows out of Dragonbone as it is not flexible, just in case that was the direction you were heading (not sure if you are still refining Christine's staff or the new Allys' bow).

If you're aiming for "unbreakable" bow the directions to go are Very Fine and Sylvan; and then Shatterproof (VF and Sylvan for those rare moments caught in a No Mana Zone, also because it adds +1 damage if you have to smack someone with it in melee).

New Allies staff, actually, since priests of Helios carry staffs and not bows, as per my original concept.

Dragonbone staff is best staff.  /thumbsup.gif

So strong that even her god forgot about her, so did not grant her spells! That makes sense, actually...
Dispel Magic has been used...with not a bad roll...

Happens. Next week will be like that for me. Starting after tomorrow...

I'll politely suggest to Kalima's player that she should keep an eye on you...  One way or the other.

I'm guessing you might have a bit of fun with Gareth, in an "I don't want to think about this" sort of way.

In GURPS, Xenophilia just means that when the weird big-eyeballed sorcerer from another dimension makes threats and shows up ready to fight, Jareth talks first heedless of the obvious danger signs.  And when an otyugh is out wandering around, he treats it like an errant (but very deadly) puppy instead of "kill on sight" like most adventurers.  Or when he encounters weirdly coloured Hobgoblins who are clearly of a death cult and dropping obvious "and we're going to unleash death on everyone" threats, he'll speak amicably and wish them well on parting.

Basically, unless he knows it cannot be talked to or reasoned with, he'll try talking and reasoning even if it's making the threatening gestures and clearly intent on attacking.  I'm waiting for him to mistake a "mindless" danger for something he can diplomacy at and get chomped.  I know it's coming.


[EDIT]
I mean, he's right now commiserating with a demon summoning, infernally bound, practitioner of what are probably the Darkest Arts, who happily sells people cursed (and worse) goods.

Re: Out of Character 9
So... what's the political situation between the Empire and Northport?  How much pull does the Imperial Mages Guild (which apparently doesn't maintain a strong presence in Northport) have with who/what/how ever runs the Empire?

Asking for a friend....

Re: Out of Character 9
Hello everyone! I'm the newest arrival in the Adventurer's Guild. I'll be easy to find, just look for the guy that looks like a fish out of water.

I'll be honest, it's a bit intimidating to jump into a game where the 'Private to' section is bigger than the 'Message' section...

Welcome.  The hard part is finding a party to jump into with when most (but not all) are out and about (there are a few just gearing up so to speak).

Are they?  Where are those stats located?  Or did you do the hard work of calculating it?

Re: Out of Character 9
Jareth, I think he's talking about the immense list of characters a message cna be "private" to, just below the editor box.

Jendrich, that box includes every character, PC or NPC, that has ever posted to any thread in the game.  GM doesn't get rid of them, and they turn up again (player) years later.  I've been playing for almost five years, and I've met fewer than half of them.

Can Mario resist one-shotting the Load-Bearing NPC in the eye?  Will said NPC do something terribly stupid and get shot in the eye?

Tune in next update for the continuing adventures of Oh Shit We Are So Fucked.

Especially compared to the few games I've been in so far.

So are any group looking for an extra swordarm to assist them?

I can shoot him anywhere.  Eyes are good when you need to end something quickly.  A knee or foot works well when you just want someone to stay where they are for a while, without needing a necromancer to question them later.  Voice of experience, here...
