  1. OOC Thread for AWS Discussion

    For what it's worth, Nina, I actually really liked the Project 8 idea. The project itself wasn't confusing once it was explained, the post where you introduced it was just a little confusingly written. It's different than what we've done before though, and an interesting way to get new faces introduced and give us new situations to play out.
  2. AWS PROJECT #8

    Hahaha Okay, just to make sure I get it...I'm writing a story about 'Savant' encountering another Key? Meanwhile Noir writes another story about Kia and a different Key?
  3. OOC Thread for AWS Discussion

    Kia will, of course, go. And be tickled pink to be asked to go.
  4. Question about Telepathy

    Yep! And yeah, you're right. Best to be smart about it. Sprinkle in some imperfect trades, some deals that go sour, just so it looks like you're another Warren Buffet, not a magic space wizard. But that's the basics.
  5. Question about Telepathy

    Hang out around the stock exchange floor, read the trader's minds, learn all the inside secrets, and start buying and selling. With any kind of decent seed capital, you're a billionaire in weeks.
  6. What you think about these game

    I tend to agree with Nina, though perhaps not with quite her emphasis. I like Pathfinder a lot, but it's very rules-intensive. There are a TON of options right out of the gate, and that can be a lot of fun if you have the system mastery to understand those options...but it also makes it a higher bar of entry, and a much more time-consuming character generation and to some extent gameplay. Some of those issues were adjusted with Starfinder, which replaced a huge array of classes with a small number of classes that have a large number of customization options...a step forward, but it's still a different experience than 5th Edition. Overall I've been really impressed with 5th Edition. It's not a 'perfect' game (what is?) but it has a very workable balance between the time and effort needed to learn and master the rules, and the number of options available. I have in the past wished it had more options, but fortunately the publisher erred on the side of simplicity, knowing that it's easier to add options later than it is to subtract complexity. I have my own wishlist of course, for changes and additional options, but I find 5th Edition D&D provides a robust framework for customized rules as well. The relatively streamlined core rules mean it's easier to overlay one's own house rules without creating unintentional conflicts or weird interactions. So it's quite flexible.

    Thanks, Nina! I'll work up something fun for your post.

    In the cockpit, Echo turns the ship's defense grid on as well as the external PA system. The goblin and his crew see a turret slide out of a recessed port on the belly of the ship and swivel to point at them. A bored-sounding voice emerges from speakers near the airlock doors. "Stand down and play nice, or I will blow a new crater into the spot..." she yawned, "...you guys are standing." Intimidate: 1D20+2 = [4]+2 = 6 (Attempting to 'demoralize' the goblin, but I doubt that'll do it. :))
  9. AWS COMBAT THREAD

    Sounds like fun to me, but I'm also good either way.
  10. This sounds really interesting, but I need to hold off for now, and make sure I can keep juggling the games I'm already in before I add anything new.
  11. AWS COMBAT THREAD

    Okay, updated my last post with rolls for critters as they actually come in for their attack run, and for Kia as she changes form. She will be closing in, but can't attack this turn.
  12. AWS COMBAT THREAD

    My intent is to use Q-construct this round and have my bunnies of doom attack. I should be able to get that post out today.
  14. AWS COMBAT THREAD

    I know you don't want to see die rolls, but I feel like I want to post this here because god-damn. 9d10: 66 [9d10=10, 3, 10, 8, 10, 2, 7, 6, 10] Dodge (1st mega): 9d10 66 So that's 3+2+1+2+1+2 = 11 successes on dodge. Kia is a leaf on the wind.
