  1. Excuses and more excuses. It was honestly disgusting to watch and at this point Ed just wasn't up for that. When he'd asked 'what was your plan?' He didn't care who was in the right. He didn't care why any of them felt this was necessary. And he was one hundred percent disinclined to argue a Single. Damn. Point. This was personal. End of story. Terrenus wasn't a tourist friendly land. The amount of raw power one could bring to bear was not only hard capped in comparison to other lands, but that cap was so much lower. Maybe in a nightmare realm where strength can merely be fabricated one could play out their power fantasy unchecked. Maybe in a nightmare realm they could warp reality to the point where they could mindlessly contend with the natives. But sadly, this wasn't some fantasy world. In this cold cruel reality, should you go out of your way to antagonize a monster, you'd better make fucking sure the cage doesn't break. It really shouldn't have been a surprise that the room erupted into violence. Because the only way this was going to end was with one side slaughtered in totality. Vlad may have set the room ablaze, but that was more of a plus. People forget, but light casts shadows. Ed certainly hadn't dismissed his magic as useless after it had merely maimed his victim instead of killing it outright. He'd just adjusted his second swing and that had been that. Multiple light sources cast multiple shadows and Ed certainly wasn't limited to moving rocks at speed. He Moved. And with his current grudge and the wall busted open there was only one place he wanted to go. Through the queens body in a shower of gore. [Dragon Tooth] The queen may have had a tough exoskeleton. Ed's shadow magic enhanced blow forced back flesh into a collision with the magical power not only from the queen, but into what was possessed by the piercing Sri Maash as well. While these energies might not have cast shadows visible to the typical human eye, these were forced back into collision with flesh, on rapid repeat. Collisions weren't exactly tame were they?
  2. Online forum, IC, posting behind screen names. If y’all don’t I will.
  3. You mean kick a thread along so it actually finishes? I’ve done that.
  4. Ed, Illene, Vlad, Tim.... ect. So yeah. Might not have been death death, But Ed for sure got a 'your skills have no power here' smackdown.
  5. Dunno. Everyone that woke up was forcefully killed off. No guarantee for what happened to those who dropped/accepted death. Your risk.
  6. When I read "the Demon is marching across the dessert" and the OOC is already 6 pages long.
  7. Let’s see. A lot of the online stuff was dealing with the toxic folks with god tier scrub powers. You know the ones, utterly immune to things like swords or elemental blasts, etc. But, distort the parameters for their high speed regeneration and the last thing they become before death is the cancer patient chungus to eclipse Big Chungus. I’m enjoying Lagrimosa now. It’s kinda nice to have moderation and a lunacy cap and not have to do that stuff anymore. I enjoy kicking ideas around in my head but there’s no pressure to do something about it or all my stuff gets rect.
  8. Not everything: You can write a character that’s supposed to be an island, superior to all others in every way. But good luck getting visitors. I do this to be a participant, not be a cheerleader for a Mary Sue. Don’t out edgelord Edgelordington: Have fun with that mysterious character of yours should people decide to give the mystery a miss. I’m still not convinced most of them know how to read. You think I’m joking.... but I’m not joking. PCs aren’t made. They’re claimed: It’s not about making something out of whole cloth and force feeding it into a story. It’s about finding a npc (non personal character) and turning the spotlight on. And don’t call them Non Playable Characters when you’re writing them yourself. That’s just pepega logic.

    In-Character Dialogue

    I usually end up reading the post out loud to make sure it actually says what I intended it to say. Sometimes I’m surprised at what auto correct tries to sneak by. One day I’m gonna respond to what someone wrote and not what they intended to write and start some drama.
  10. Summary Predators Keep gets a bunch of loot straight from multiple parties ‘supplies for plan to screw over Red Yusuke’ caches. And if you think I’m joking about that designation, then you haven’t read the lore. Akiris has a new sword. Gotta use those banked tourney posts for something. And just to be clear, IC annoyance does not translate to OOC rage at a MOBS tourney. It was legit the best I’ve been a part of. It helps that the competing tourneys are straight garbage, but MOBS does win. Consequences and opportunities So about halfway through writing this I noticed the OFM had a thread for this in cities of the empire. I decided to push on, but at a slower pace. That thread hasn’t moved so... I guess word is basically one dude plus a gaggle of civilian volunteers finished the job before the Order platoons could roll out. Someone might take notice/exception to that. Second, a lot of stuff was repossessed, forcefully if need be. Hard to say if any plans are prefoiled if the intended target has yet to resurface but I figured I’d mention it. That was a few targets dunked on by a duo.
  11. “Uh, was that Terren? That sounded uncomfortably like Terren.” Something had definitely been up as Akiris’ third fight not only ended far less abruptly than the man remembered, but made no sense entirely. Not to him, not to Priscilla, and unless Usher was literally making up new words as he went along, the swordsman didn’t like where this was going. ”Alright. Let me try this again, I’ll keep in mind Terrens don’t have a rabid gaming culture like... just... Actually painful. Ok. The machine takes the things you do and the things your opponent does, then calculates the end result that we just watched in the video. So unlike reality, what you want to do doesn’t happen immediately. There’s a fraction of delay where the machine processes the inputs.... actions, and determines what goes down rather than it just happening. Which is where the concept of a forced disconnect is actually cancer because in this case your avatar can’t receive any actions from you and is pretty much reduced to a punching bag.” Thanks to the ‘explaining to a five year old’ level of explanation, Akiris figured he understood enough. It was a tourney and had odd rules that had no place in an actual fight. He’d had fun though. While three fights hadn’t been enough to completely embrace the concept of zero consequences, apparently running these machines was expensive and additional use outside of official function wasn’t in his budget. But he’d known that going in. All this modern technology stuff was pretty much just like magic items. As long as you knew how to use them, who knew exactly what made them run? Ya know. Other than the two other people at the table that made said magic items for a living. And fortunately he knew exactly how to handle this particular conundrum. “Yo barkeep! I’m gun need another bottle cuz I still have feeling in my teeth and I don’t want to....”
