01[18:41] <thomamelas> Hello!
[18:41] <mranthropy> Hey!
03[18:46] * jacobkosh (Mibbit@161D67C.F200AF3C.184D5AC1.IP) has joined #cfgames
01[18:46] <thomamelas> Hello!
[18:46] <jacobkosh> Hey, everyone!
[18:46] <desc> hey guys
[18:47] <jacobkosh> so I bought a new furnace today, but it won’t be installed till next Monday, and it’s gonna get down to 25 tonight, so I am doing my best human burrito
[18:48] <desc> d’oh
[18:48] <mranthropy> No furnace?
[18:48] <mranthropy> Man, that blows.
01[18:48] <thomamelas> You have my sympathy. I used to live in an unheated basement room. Burrow deep!
[18:49] <mranthropy> We are supposed to have an eerily warm weekend at least?
[18:49] <jacobkosh> Mine kind of slowly gave up the ghost over time. I figured it had another month or so but then bam, it finally just pooped out this weekend. I’ve set up space heaters in the bathrooms but my main heat source out here in the living room is the cats piled on me :P
[18:49] <desc> jake, you’re a mod
[18:49] <jacobkosh> Yeah, actually! After tonight it’s a low of only 45 or so for the next five days
01[18:49] <thomamelas> Start a fire using old RPG books. Start with the FR stuff.
[18:49] <jacobkosh> hahhaaha
[18:49] <desc> would it be infractable if my entire response to a multi page debate about eurotrash games and ameritrash games and both of those terms was simply:
[18:49] <desc> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbLDxAzrQSY
[18:50] <jacobkosh> NO
[18:50] <jacobkosh> that is 100% truth
[18:50] <desc> I feel like it summarizes everything I have to say about board game design
[18:50] <jacobkosh> and ameritrash is best trash
[18:50] <desc> for now I’ve stuck with a modest portrait of George Washington
[18:51] <jacobkosh> I do not have a head for moving around little wood cubes that represent tobacco bales or whatever. Give me space wars and 500 plastic minis
01[18:51] <thomamelas> Truth.
[18:52] <ell> oh my god you guys are here already
[18:52] <jacobkosh> ell!
01[18:52] <thomamelas> If there are wooden blocks on my board then they had better well be representing military units.
[18:52] <ell> nobody said my name
[18:52] <ell> so I had no idea
[18:52] <jacobkosh> are you feeling up to it tonight? you sounded miserable earlier
01[18:52] <thomamelas> I said hello.
[18:52] <ell> You didn’t say “ell”
[18:53] <ell> my client parses out longer strings
[18:53] <jacobkosh> does your client beep or something when someone says that?
[18:53] <ell> yes
[18:54] <jacobkosh> so how is everybody?
[18:55] <ell> and fwiw I love all games that are good
[18:55] <ell> jake
01[18:55] <thomamelas> So Amerigames?
[18:55] <ell> I haven’t turned on the heat once
[18:55] <ell> I just leave my computer on
[18:55] <jacobkosh> hahahaha
[18:55] <desc> hi5 tom
[18:55] <ell> and my place is well insulated enough that it keeps it well toasty
[18:56] <jacobkosh> i’m jelly
[18:56] <jacobkosh> of course you are also like 300 miles south of me
[18:57] <jacobkosh> this house does have shit for insulation, though
[18:57] <jacobkosh> it is so cheap
[18:57] <jacobkosh> in my eight years here I’ve replaced about half of it already
[18:58] <mranthropy> home upkeep = no fun
[18:58] <jacobkosh> for reals yo
[18:58] <jacobkosh> everything has at least one more zero on the price than it ought to
[18:59] <desc> truth
01[18:59] <thomamelas> Yep.
[19:00] <jacobkosh> ok give me three minutes, I am wolfing down the last of my….I guess this is technically breakfast >.>
[19:00] <mranthropy> yeah. and just when you do one thing another pops up.
[19:00] <jacobkosh> and then we’ll rock and rule
[19:01] <mranthropy> hmmm. maybe i need to build some predictive models on future home repairs as opposed to doing whatever they want at work tomorrow…
[19:02] <desc> eat slow jake, I am waiting a minute for this frozen spinach pizza to be done
[19:06] <desc> yay spinach pizza with sriracha
[19:06] <jacobkosh> oh man that sounds rad
[19:07] <jacobkosh> you know what I am addicted to lately? Mac and cheese with sriracha
03[19:07] * MrAnthropy (~MrAnthrop@cloak-97973A00.static.kc.surewest.net) has left #cfgames
[19:07] <jacobkosh> like, a lot of sriracha
[19:07] <jacobkosh> like

[19:07] <jacobkosh> sheeyit
[19:07] <jacobkosh> ok! I am enfoodened
01[19:09] <thomamelas> Alright.
01[19:12] <thomamelas> Test
[19:12] <jacobkosh> yo!
01[19:13] <thomamelas> Heh
[19:14] <jacobkosh> Last week, you guys followed the trail of the missing tass and Dolph, its carrier, to a night clinic in Vancouver’s sketchy Downtown East area. There you found a line of homeless and transient people waiting to enter.
[19:15] <desc> (fuck that door)
[19:15] <jacobkosh> Aurelia snuck in and underwent an “examination” by the Awakened nurse, then hustled into a back room with other patients, many of whom showed signs of some sort of odd skin affliction.
[19:15] <mranthropy> (for reals)
[19:16] <jacobkosh> A second Awakened, a doctor, began performing some kind of extended ritual on the patients as Aurelia watched on from the sidelines. Meanwhile, the rest of the group attempted to enter and discovered the all-devouring cosmic menace of the door.
[19:17] <jacobkosh> As the door mocked their dice rools and their feeble mortal lives, the nurse came back up front just as Blackjack smashed through shoulder-first. His silence spell kept the commotion from being heard in the back, but the nurse drew a pen and began casting!
[19:18] <jacobkosh> Roll for initiative! 1d10 plus initiative mod
01[19:18] <thomamelas> jacobkosh rolled for initiative! 1d10 plus initiative mod —> error: malformed expression
[19:18] <jacobkosh> hahahaha
01[19:18] <thomamelas> Ugh. Give me a second.

03[19:20] * Now talking in #cfgames
03[19:20] * Topic is ‘Critical Failures Games – Delphindaes considers old things new again, starts hooking up with elderly women, "if i ain’t seen them, they’re fresh to me"’
03[19:20] * Set by simonwolf on Sat Jul 17 19:24:49
01[19:20] <thomamelas> Right.
[19:20] <jacobkosh> (no, it’s a new scene – unless you spent a point of mana)
[19:21] <mranthropy> (okay, just making sure!)
01[19:21] <thomamelas> 1d10+6
[19:21] <6: 13 [1d10=7]
[19:22] <jacobkosh> 1d10+7
[19:22] <7: 13 [1d10=6]
[19:23] <jacobkosh> ugh I forget how WOD handles initiative ties. we’ll have blackjack go first for this fight
[19:23] <ell> higher imod
[19:23] <jacobkosh> ahhhhhh kk
[19:23] <jacobkosh> just like D&D, then
[19:23] <jacobkosh> that works
[19:25] <jacobkosh> Elithora is on deck! You’re currently standing on the outside of the clinic door, next to the one Thom smashed open. A line of homeless people are staring at you guys, although many more are dispersing, thinking something is up.
[19:25] <jacobkosh> The nurse is inside the reception area with Blackjack.
[19:26] <desc> Okay, the nurse is about to cast some nonsense at us. I’m looking at improving the Temporal Shift spell to back up Blackjack with an extra point of armor by fussing with time. (p 264)
[19:26] <desc> As improv this is just gnosis+time, right?
[19:26] <ell> yep
[19:27] <desc> Elithora yells something out to Blackjack while pointing at the nurse, but her words sound like a record being played on a turntable that was just unplugged and is slowing to a stop.
[19:27] <jacobkosh> and the roll goes xd10h8
[19:27] <desc> 5d10h8
[19:27] <critical> jacobkosh, 5d10h8: 1 [5d10h8=7,1,1,3,9]
[19:35] <jacobkosh> however, this is totally vulgar!
[19:36] <jacobkosh> base 1d10 for her Gnosis of 2, plus 2 for Sleeper witnesses, minus 1 for magical tools
[19:36] <jacobkosh> 2d10h8
[19:36] <critical> thomamelas, 5d10h8: 4 [5d10h8=[10,10,8],2,9,6,5]
[19:42] <jacobkosh> noice!
[19:42] <mranthropy> (nice!)
01[19:43] <thomamelas> And that’s vulgar. So what are my mods?
[19:43] <jacobkosh> Do you have a magical tool?
01[19:43] <thomamelas> Nope.
[19:43] <jacobkosh> ok, the paradox roll would be 3d10, then
01[19:43] <thomamelas> 3d10h8
[19:43] <critical> thomamelas, 1d10h8: 0 [1d10h8=5]
[19:45] <ell> why so many?
01[19:45] <thomamelas> (I see Infidel removed the code to make Critical simulate being evil.)
[19:45] <jacobkosh> (don’t jinx it!)
[19:45] <jacobkosh> (or wait I am the GM. jinx away!)
[19:46] <jacobkosh> (base 1, critical> Ell, 1d10h8: 1 [1d10h8=8]
[19:49] <jacobkosh> haha rad!
[19:49] <ell> : D
[19:50] <ell> I don’t eat my own foot!
[19:52] <jacobkosh> Aurelia doesn’t know the Life arcana, but she recognizes a few of the words and gestures, and she’s beginning to think that this actually is some kind of attempt to heal these people. She catches an Atlantean word that can mean, alternately, border, thoroughfare, or cliff, and that is often used when invoking or countering the Abyss.
[19:52] <jacobkosh> MrAnthropy!
[19:52] <jacobkosh> Sinon is near Elithora, on the outside of the clinic doors.
[19:54] <mranthropy> Sinon looks to the sleepers who are remaining. “What the hell are you two doing here!? You’re going to ruin the filming! Do You know how much these effects shots cost!” (Going to try to intimidate/manipulate them into leaving)
[19:54] <mranthropy> 6d10h8
[19:54] <critical> desc, 5d10h8: 2 [5d10h8=5,8,3,[10,3],4]
[20:05] <jacobkosh> Nice!
[20:06] <jacobkosh> So does that subtract your successes from her next action?
[20:06] <desc> She makes a somewhat archaic mage gesture at the nurse as she says it, and stabs twice at the air with her finger.
[20:06] <desc> (She loses 2 dice because I have 2 dots in fate. because I have two successes, it affects two rolls for the nurse.)
[20:07] <jacobkosh> (nice!)
[20:07] <jacobkosh> She is backing away from Blackjack and going to try to get help. Unfortunately, the floor under her is frictionless!
[20:08] <jacobkosh> She’s going to have to roll Dex + Athletics to not fall over, and desc has sucked away all her dice
[20:08] <jacobkosh> leaving her with a chance die!
[20:08] <jacobkosh> 1d10h8
[20:08] <critical> thomamelas, 1d10h8: 0 [1d10h8=2]
[20:16] <jacobkosh> it’s almost always stat + skill
[20:16] <jacobkosh> Her brow furrows!
[20:18] <jacobkosh> “You…we are trying to, to help people! And you pull a…! No! Go to hell!”
01[20:19] <thomamelas> “Pull a what?”
[20:20] <desc> Elithora scowls at the nurse and glances around the room. Where the hell did Aurelia get to, anyway?
[20:20] <jacobkosh> “A, a…!” She points at your gun. “That! I, I mean…what gives you the….?!” She shrugs, angrily, before finishing her sentence like three seconds later. “the right?”
[20:22] <mranthropy> (Aurelia’s up now, yes?)
[20:22] <jacobkosh> (yeah! although combat is over for the time being)
[20:22] <mranthropy> (Okay!)
[20:22] <jacobkosh> Ell, are you watching the ritual still?
01[20:23] <thomamelas> “A gun? Yes. I am Blackjack, Talon of the Adamatine Arrow. I am here at the direction of the consilium to retrive the tass that was stolen. I am not unwilling to listen however.”
[20:24] <ell> Are any of the other mages in the room, Jake?
[20:24] <mranthropy> Sinon walks into the room. With the sleepers gone, he drops his borrowed jacket to the floor along with the magical guise he had been wearing. He looks at Blackjack. “She should have taken your deal. She would’ve received better than what the order will give her.”
[20:24] <jacobkosh> It’s just you and the doctor. You haven’t heard the third fellow for a bit.
[20:25] <ell> Going to risk reading the mind of a guy casting a spell
[20:26] <ell> 4d10h8
[20:27] <jacobkosh> 4d10h8
[20:27] <critical> MrAnthropy, 7d10h8: 3 [7d10h8=2,9,6,9,6,5,9]
[20:31] <mranthropy> (Err, I guess I needed a
2 for resolve actually?) man what the fuck?" You see a lanky youth in track pants, a t-shirt, and a skullie.
[20:32] <jacobkosh> -3 yeah
[20:32] <mranthropy> okay, I’l re-roll
[20:32] <mranthropy> 4d10h8
[20:32] <+critical> MrAnthropy, 4d10h8: 1 [4d10h8=4,4,1,8]
[20:34] <jacobkosh> okay! she frowns, looking concerned, and raises her hands diffidently. “But you aren’t supposed to be here. Loki’s going to be mad if he sees you. So will….” she seems to think better of it. “We’re not doing anything to hurt the Veil.”
[20:34] <desc> Elithora glances at the windows at the word “Veil.” Are there still bystanders peering in?
[20:35] <jacobkosh> They’ve taken off, although given how bright the clinic is compared to the dark street outside, it’s possible someone could be standing in the street. The nurse’s shadow spell fizzled out when she hit her head, though.
[20:36] <desc> Elithora is still thinking about the spirit she spoke to. “What are you even doing here?”
[20:38] <jacobkosh> The door from the back offices opens. "Yo, I’m going out for some eat
[20:39] <jacobkosh> He’s unshaven and has the complexion of someone who eats a lot of McNuggets.
[20:40] <jacobkosh> The nurse pipes up. “Loki, you really should have been up here with me. It is not appropriate for you to be taking naps in the back while the rest of us work.”
01[20:41] <thomamelas> Keeping his pistol visable but not raised. “I am Blackjack, Talon of the Admantine Arrow. The Consilium has sent us to retrive the Tass your group stole. Can we skip the part where you try to fight your way through us?”
[20:41] <jacobkosh> He shoots her a look of baffled frustration, then turns to Sinon and Blackjack. “Arrow, huh? What a clusterfuck. We thought you was Seers.”
[20:43] <mranthropy> Sinon chuckles a bit to himself. “If we were Seers you’d be dead.”
01[20:43] <thomamelas> Finds a chair. “Sinon, is it often a problem in your line of…work for people to assume you know what they are talking about?” Sitting in it and looking relaxed but not loose.
[20:44] <jacobkosh> Loki shuffles back and forth on his feet. “So this about that Tass, or what?”
[20:45] <mranthropy> Sinon ignores the Arrow. “Yes, this is about the Tass.”
[20:45] <jacobkosh> (I like this picture’s vibe: http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs41/i/2009/031/0/1/Clinic_by_DrDo.jpg )
[20:46] <mranthropy> “Specifically: Where is it?”
[20:46] <desc> Elithora seems to decide that a Good Cop is needed and steps next to Sinon with a calm smile. “There are procedures to keep in mind in acquiring these sorts of things, and I sense some of us may have gotten a b it hasty in taking the Tass … even if for a potentially good purpose.”
[20:47] <jacobkosh> The nurse sighs. “Well, YOU people weren’t even supposed to BE there. It is hardly OUR fault that you were. I did my job perfectly.”
[20:48] <desc> Elithora starts to say to the nurse, “You have to understand there are protocols … Things can’t simply go missing …”
[20:49] <jacobkosh> Loki shuffles back and forth uncomfortably. “Yeah, uh…we need that Tass, dog. These people be sick. And like the lady said, y’all weren’t even supposed to be there.”
01[20:49] <thomamelas> “No battle plan survives contact with the enemy.” Sighs.
01[20:49] <thomamelas> “Perhaps this would all be much simplier if you both sit down and tell us what is going on, and why you took the tass?”
[20:51] <desc> Elithora almsot invisibly nudges Sinon towards Loki while walking toward the nurse with an extended hand to help her up.
[20:51] <mranthropy> “i suggest you do as my friend asks.” Sinon pulls a cell phone out of his pocket and begins dialing a number.
[20:51] <ell> Aurelia is wondering how long this ritual is going to take
[20:51] <desc> (and another Evil Eye in mind case this dumb nurse get shifty)
[20:51] <jacobkosh> Meanwhile, Ell, Arrowsmith has finished his ritual. A couple of the patients smile and scratch as they feel a bit better without knowing why, and one starts to leave. “Hold up,” Arrowsmith says. “I need to, uh…double check.” He pulls out a tongue depressor. He moves quickly from patient to patient and frowns. “Not as well as I’d hoped…” he murmurs.
[20:52] <jacobkosh> (heh)
[20:53] <ell> As he finishes Aurelia pats him on the back
[20:54] <jacobkosh> The nurse takes Elithora’s hand somewhat reluctantly. “People have been getting sick, magically. It’s called bleakscale. Some have died already. Their ghosts want us to fix it…”
[20:54] <jacobkosh> Ell, he jumps at the back pat. “What the…?”
[20:54] <ell> “What exactly are these people sick with?”
[20:54] <jacobkosh> The nurse continues. “Well, they want me to fix it. I don’t think they care what Loki does.” She sniggers.
[20:55] <desc> Elithora pulls the nurse up and half-guides and half-pushes her into a seat with a smooth motion while listening. She remains standing.
[20:55] <jacobkosh> Loki rolls his eyes.
[20:56] <ell> Aurelia smiles at him. "I’m a friend, please don’t be alarmed.
[20:57] <jacobkosh> Ell, the doctor’s eyes narrow as he looks you up and down. “Hm.” His nostrils flare with momentary anger, then he relaxes at your question. “It’s called bleakscale. It’s an abyssal intrusion, last seen in Prague in 1931. Showed up in the homeless population roughly six weeks ago.”
01[20:57] <thomamelas> “So you took the Tass to power a ritual to try to cure it? Do you know what it’s source is?”
[20:59] <ell> Aurelia frowns slightly. “That’s not good. And you’ve been stockpiling Tass to attempt to cure it?”
[20:59] <jacobkosh> Memoranda, the nurse, shrugs. “It’s abyssal. Someone’s spell went really wrong, or…maybe a Scelestus?” (Scelesti are Abyss worshippers.)
[21:00] <jacobkosh> Loki says, “We been looking, but ain’t found anyone yet. When we do, though….” he makes a tough-guy face.
[21:02] <mranthropy> Sinon puts his phone back in his pocket once Loki and the nurse begin to talk.
[21:02] <jacobkosh> Ell, Arrowsmith looks at you. “Precisely. It takes a lot of mana, and with no Hallow and no nearby ley lines, we had to make our own luck. I’ll face the Consilium’s judgment if I have to, but I stand by what I’ve done.”
[21:02] <desc> Elithora taps her chin thoughtfully. “We should call this in. I suppose our benefactor would want to know about his missing rock candy. Wait …”
[21:03] <desc> She turns to Memoranda and Loki. “Why haven’t you gone up the ladder with this? Do you think this problem came from inside?”
[21:04] <mranthropy> To Loki and Memoranda, “Where is your companion?” (I figure things might be easier if all of the party were together…)
[21:05] <ell> Aurelia nods. “I take it you’ve discerned why I’m here then. I can’t force you to come with us, but I think it would certainly be better to tackle this issue with the support of the consilium than be seen by the as an enemy. For the sake of your patients, if no-one else.”
[21:06] <jacobkosh> Arrowsmith pauses. “Voices…you brought friends, didn’t you?” He sighs. “Okay. Let’s go up front.” He looks at the patients, who’ve been watching your conversation quizzically. “Uh, you folks can head out the back entrance over there. Take plenty of Vitamin C and come back to me if your symptoms recur.”
01[21:08] <thomamelas> “Apostates. In a Guardian controlled area. Still, I would assume there have to be a few Free Council members who would have helped just for the benefit of tweaking the Guardian’s noses. And they could have gotten help from the Admantine Arrow.”
[21:08] <jacobkosh> Arrowsmith and Aurelia come up front from the back hallway. Arrowsmith frowns. “I thought you were our site security, Loki.” Loki looks at his shoes. “Get off my case, man.”
[21:09] <jacobkosh> Arrowsmith claps his hands together. “Okay, ladies and gents. You’ve caught our little cabal. Are you Guardians, or what?”
[21:10] <jacobkosh> Memoranda grumbles. “They weren’t even supposed to BE there!”
[21:10] <mranthropy> “Only one of us.”
[21:10] <jacobkosh> Arrowsmith nods. “Hm. How much do you know?”
[21:11] <desc> Elithora sizes Arrowsmith. “Maybe the free market sent us. How much should we know?”
[21:11] <mranthropy> “We understand the situation and your plan.”
[21:12] <mranthropy> “Which was nicely put together, by the way.”
[21:12] <ell> Aurelia looks around. “There was another. We’re one short.”
[21:12] <jacobkosh> Memoranda smiles. “That was me. I did most of that.”
01[21:13] <thomamelas> “Which does bring us to an important point. There was a man with that Tass. What happened to him?”
[21:15] <ell> Aurelia doubles back to the office with the tass
[21:15] <jacobkosh> Loki and Arrowsmith look at Aurelia briefly before looking away. Arrowsmith clears his throat. “The, uh, bulky gentleman? He’s fine. After the spirit left him, I gave him a bit of morphine and put him in a cab headed toward the nearest Best Western. He’ll wake up in ten to twelve hours feeling pretty good.”
[21:16] <jacobkosh> Ell, the Tass is in two gym bags on the floor of the records office. It’s been made to look like barbell weights. It looks like a small quantity has been used, but the bulk of it is still here.
[21:17] <ell> And the fourth man? The one I saw in there with Loki?
[21:17] <jacobkosh> He’s gone!
[21:18] <mranthropy> (No he’s totally still there—eating cheese!)
[21:18] <jacobkosh> ( :D )
[21:21] <desc> Elithora peers at the bag and looks relieved. One mystery down, new mystery opened …
[21:21] <ell> Aurelia casts a mental shield on herself
[21:21] <ell> 4d10h8
[21:21] <critical> Ell, 4d10h8: 1 [4d10h8=5,5,9,4]
[21:36] <ell> resolve+gnosis to contest on Memo
[21:37] <jacobkosh> ok!
[21:37] <jacobkosh> 3d10h8
[21:37] <critical> MrAnthropy, 7d10h8: 0 [7d10h8=6,7,3,7,3,7,6]
[21:39] <mranthropy> (Manip + Subterfuge for Lie Detection, which is silly since its obvious)
[21:39] <mranthropy> (obvious that nothing is going on here!)
[21:39] <jacobkosh> (hahahaha)
[21:40] <jacobkosh> His appearance: a slim man of average height, late forties, balding, with long grey hair in the back, dressed kind of outdoorsy with a wooden walking stick.
[21:40] <ell> (just in that 3 second window… need to get better at mindy stuff to go prolonged duration)
[21:40] <jacobkosh> And he has a kind of high-pitched voice.
[21:41] <mranthropy> “Arrowsmith! What do you know about this?”
[21:41] <jacobkosh> Arrowsmith blanches slightly. “What do I know about what?”
[21:42] <mranthropy> “Seers.”
[21:42] <ell> Aurelia looks at Sinon and shakes her head. "Don’t worry about that right now. It’s late and we have reports to make
01[21:43] <thomamelas> Shoos Sinon away from Memoranda.
[21:43] <jacobkosh> Arrowsmith speaks slowly, choosing his words with care. “We had heard Pitch would be making a deal with Seers tonight. That’s why we picked tonight to do our little heist.”
[21:44] <jacobkosh> “Obviously, we were misinformed.”
[21:44] <mranthropy> 7d10h8
[21:44] <critical> Ell, 4d10h8: 0 [4d10h8=6,1,5,1]
[22:19] <jacobkosh> (oh oh oh
[22:19] <jacobkosh> (I kept forgetting to remind you guys: you can spend a Willpower point to add 3 dice to any roll)
01[22:19] <thomamelas> “One of them might make for a recruit. She didn’t freeze up when we came in the door.”
[22:19] <jacobkosh> (you recover willpower between stories, or you can get a point back by doing something in line with your virtue or vice)
[22:20] <desc> Elithora looks at the tass and then the medical apostates with half-focused eyes and not without sympathy. (Interconnection-Fate vision, not really looking for anything specific. My tapestry-knot-sense is tingling about everything tonight.)
[22:20] <desc> 4d10h8
[22:20] <Time :p
[23:37] <jacobkosh> oooooh
[23:37] <jacobkosh> ooooooooh!
[23:38] <jacobkosh> desc have I given you Tome of the Mysteries
[23:38] <desc> “the light will be yellow for 0.42 more seconds keeps accelerating”
[23:38] <desc> I think so
[23:38] <jacobkosh> there are a couple car-related rotes in there
[23:38] <jacobkosh> they’re great
[23:38] <jacobkosh> including autopilot
01[23:38] <thomamelas> Forces 2 means never ever hitting a red light.
[23:38] <jacobkosh> which the Free Council calls the “knight rider rote”
[23:38] <jacobkosh> it specifically notes that the car does not talk :P
[23:38] <desc> hmm
[23:39] <desc> here we go, tome of mysteries
[23:39] <ell> Mind 5
[23:39] <ell> now the car talks
[23:39] <ell> and has a personality!
[23:40] <jacobkosh> oh my god
[23:40] <jacobkosh> an imbued artifact: pontiac firebird
[23:40] <jacobkosh> it’s sentient
[23:40] <desc> hahah
[23:40] <jacobkosh> it can jump thirty feet
01[23:40] <thomamelas> Gonna need forces 2 at least for the turbo boost.
[23:40] <jacobkosh> hahaha yes exactly
[23:41] <jacobkosh> what I love is that this isn’t even gonzo
[23:41] <jacobkosh> it’s something you can TOTALLY DO
[23:41] <ell> built in paradox reduction
[23:41] <ell> everybody remembers the car from knight rider
01[23:41] <thomamelas> And cars talking was a thing in actual cars.
[23:42] <jacobkosh> yeah that’s true
[23:42] <jacobkosh> you can just be like “Oh that’s my OnStar, no worries”
[23:42] <jacobkosh> “yeah sometimes it gives directions in the tongue of the Old Ones, so what”
01[23:43] <thomamelas> It’s the new metal voice pack.
01[23:44] <thomamelas> I’ve been debating playing with imbue and guns.
[23:45] <jacobkosh> that is totally an AA thing to do
01[23:45] <thomamelas> Shotgun with knetic blow. Not vulgar, everyone has seen what movie shotguns do.
[23:46] <jacobkosh> hahaha yep
[23:46] <jacobkosh> you could probably make that your Order tool, too
[23:46] <jacobkosh> reducing paradox with your magic shotgun
01[23:47] <thomamelas> Naw, his order tool is a big broadsword. Because while shotguns are more practical, sometimes you need style.
[23:47] <jacobkosh> nice :D
[23:48] <jacobkosh> ell can cloak it with Mind magic, too. so you can just walk down the street with a giant broadsword strapped to you and nobody will say nothin’.
01[23:48] <thomamelas> At some point we’re gonna see him loaded for bear, and it’s gonna be a tac vest, truma plates, magazines, sword on one him, Glock on the other with a shotgun in hand.
01[23:49] <thomamelas> Can do it with Prime too. Can make inanimate objects invisible.
[23:49] <jacobkosh> oh nice :D
[23:49] <jacobkosh> you guys are really getting into the swing of this!
01[23:51] <thomamelas> “Did…did your shotgun just shoot fire?” “Yep, load my own dragon’s breath rounds….”
[23:53] <ell> I am debating whether to have fun with taoist sorcery
[23:53] <desc> if weird vampires or werewolves show up, remind me to stand behind you Tom
01[23:54] <thomamelas> 2 dots of matter and roll your own silver buckshot.
[23:55] <jacobkosh> Acanthus are great in a fight, desc! Adding and subtracting dice is uber
01[23:55] <thomamelas> Wait, are nu-Werewolves annoyed by silver?
[23:55] <jacobkosh> you know, I don’t know
[23:55] <jacobkosh> W;tF is the one I haven’t even looked at yet
[23:56] <desc> oh yeah
[23:56] <desc> I will be slowing time and moving dice around
[23:56] <desc> … from the rear
[23:56] <desc> and the force / prime / matter types will bravely hold the front line!
[23:57] <jacobkosh> it’s a plan! :)
01[23:58] <thomamelas> Hey, there was a reason that the orginal entrance plan was BJ first and Sinon last. The squishy types were in the middle…
[23:58] <ell> Aurelia is easily the weakest in a straight up fight
[23:58] <ell> Her advantage being she has lots of ways to avoid that
01[23:59] <thomamelas> I have some things planned for combat. Like Counterspell Prime (Outnumbered Edition)
[23:59] <ell> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiL4O4NXYO8
Session Time: Wed Nov 28 00:00:00 2012
[00:00] <jacobkosh> I really like talking with you guys after the games because you are all clearly developing some ideas of your people and their personalities and approaches
[00:00] <jacobkosh> it’s great
[00:00] <jacobkosh> I’m watching a story assemble itself before my eyes! And I ain’t even doin’ but 1/5 of the work!
[00:02] <ell> hmmm
[00:04] <ell> yo descobot
[00:04] <ell> desc even
[00:05] <ell> you have a PM
01[00:05] <thomamelas> I like that David has a measured approache to violence. If he doesn’t need it, he won’t use it. When he does need it, he’s gonna measure by the truckload.
[00:05] <desc> k
[00:07] <jacobkosh> all right, bros! I’m going to play some vidya and then hit the hay
[00:07] <jacobkosh> this was fun!
[00:07] <desc> alright jake
[00:08] <ell> sounds like a plan. I think I’ll do the same in a sec
01[00:08] <thomamelas> See ya.
