I'd rather go with Wyrd Hunters.Last I checked, we only defaced religious iconography once, while we murdered/foiled the plans of/shot at outsiders twice.And we all know that sooner or later we'll run into werewolves and vampires. Maybe both at the same time!

>>42600760Mr Monkey: Are you awoke ? Yes ? No ? Well, needless to say the demon sealing has been a partial success. Partial.. we could not destroy the demon but sealing it in the depths of your being required the compartmentalization of certain parts of your brain and body. You would not feel a thing however, as all of it has been locked away under layers of your subconscious. As such there is a rune at the back of your neck that regulates such a function. You must never damage it even if it means dying by a different method. > Your demon is sealed. It cannot enact its plot unless you invite it to break your seal or get the seal behind you damaged from a rear attack. > You are still void touched. You can percieve ghosts, magic, and outsiders who aim to devour you. And thus occupy their common space.

>>42600884Mr Monkey: Oh for all of that, we require a small sum of 600 zny. To further numb your senses of the Aether would be a second procedure. If we do this, you can never percieve magic again. As well you would be color blind and tone deaf "

>>42603287I honestly did not notice, good job Jan. I'm just really really busy trying to learn the ins and outs of what it is to be an alchemist after years as a mage. And let me tell you, it ain't easy.
>>42602830I'll field this one. Draconic Pacts are nothing to play with. But they are ..there, Maeve. For someone to trifle in their affairs are another matter. In a town like this one, we might make contact with the agents of Vidofnir and ultimately the Lux Dragon itself. However I will warn you that the creature you seek may aim to employ your time doing their various tasks. And the price of such a commitment may not match up with your moral boundaries much of the time. With that Said, the Lux dragon resides in the world of runners, watching as one would from the seat of their Empire. It is said the the Runner's Guild had found prominence under his subdued contributions but it was also said that much of the blood the flows in Red Street, and in the Order's Inquisitorium had all passed his attention at one point. Vidofnir like so many Dragons are proponents of Law and Order but his zealous pursuit of justice while inspiring discriminates not with friend or foe and holds above all else the laws of antiquity which he patiently aims to bring back.
>>42603463 "What do pacts often entail, and have there ever been clauses that allow for peaceful separation?"
>>42603562Have you never read a book in your life? I remember reading some fantasy stuff at the mage college I used to be with when I was a kid. Something about a future world full of metal and angst. There was a saying : Never make a deal with a dragon.
>>42603620 "I'm familiar with those books but I've never read them. I do prefer more concrete facts in this case." (I've only played two sessions of Shadow Run in my life, the last time being something like 7 years ago.. Still, there are a lot of different takes on dragons. Hopefully these aren't the equivalent of making deals with devils.)
>>42603463Just what are the Laws of Antiquity?
>>42603663They are *exactly* the same as making a deal with the Devil. However they are just ever so slightly less worst, because the dragon will always fuck you over in a way, but you might just not die from it.
>>42603562>>42603663 Oh. I forgot my name tag again. >>42603731 I can't quite tell if you're speaking OoC or IC here, but I'm assuming it's OoC. Anyway, I'll wait and see what Monday says. I might be okay with Old Testament style Law and Order but Meave might need some hammering/shaping to get up to it.
>>42603836Ooc for this :)
>>42603858 I figured as much for the Shadow Run dragons, but no, I sure hope they aren't as screwed up as all that. Also being proponents of Law and Order just sounds like there's going to be 4,715 page contract with an additional 1,782 pages of footnotes and clauses... D:
>>42604052Mostly yes, let's hope we have a good time either way :p

>>42603562A blood bond, for one. And an unbreakable link to your patron dragon. The signal will be faint at first, but soon their dominion-presence will see, hear, and speak through you even from beyond the Terminus Field. Besides that, conditions of force would allow you to be your self, your blood would hunger for the aethers that compose them and you would be granted their vaunted breaths, their scales and wings with which you can perform their tasks with. Dragons are creatures of virtue you see, believing in an intangible ideal as something which the fabric of their very existence hangs. Dragons- especially old dragons, see survival as a tertiary need and so become institutions in of themselves. Vidofnir is a known patriarch of justice presiding over Trials of all kinds so falling in with his ilk would mean being infused with the blood of Light and Wind while being a champion for [Law], I imagine. Questi: Watch out, they say he once made a disciple execute one of his own the day he was inducted because the victim had committed an atrocity 4 floors before he had actually done so. Which turned out to be true !

Runner: Wait a moment you don't mean Antigua do you ? Quaz: I don't know. I knew less of what actually happened there- despite actually being there after all.

>>42604247That does sound pretty radical I would admit.Is there any sort of info like shop around? Where might I find a place called the [Silent Grasses] in this town?
>>42604211Okay, given we might be doing something illicit here, let's -not- contract this guy. More over. The danger on the heist just went through the roof. We don't have enough adept rogues to pull it off either.I'm changing my recommendation on the heist. It's not even a good plan D given this particular town. If we can't get it by means other than theft, we'll have to give the book a pass. Jackie? You feel this assessment is sound?
>>42604211Also, what are the laws of antiquity exactly?
>>42604302Really? It took us this long to realize that breaking into possibly one of the most heavily guarded institutes in the whole of the stairs, belonging to one of the most powerful magic organizations and one of the largest guilds was in fact a fuckin' terrible idea?Never mind a good Plan D it shouldn't be considered as a Plan ZUnless we can find a backdoor somewhere, but I doubt such a thing would exist
Also guys. Given that summoning is about calling stars down to manifest, and trigger, not being dead just drug elsewhere, is now a star. Couldn't one of our summoners make him into the being they summon down to assist in battle?
>>42604407Actually it's not a bad idea if we had 2-5 adept rogues or at least masks. We could claim plausible deniability and even return the book next town claiming to have killed the fucks who stole it to clear our name, turn down any rewards as well.Without means of hiding our identity though, and the strictness of DA LAW in this place, I wouldn't want to risk it at all. Even if we had adept rogues. Especially if we get somebody with a dragon pact which seems an estoundingly bad idea right now.
>>42604481I think, just somehow I think, that if we took a really dangerous book from a really forbidden library, it would take more then just a face mask to hide who took it from them.They probably have tracking magics stuck on every book in that place, wouldn't put it past them not to do it, bloody wizards
>>42604211 "..okay," Meave stops, wondering about internal conflicts. "Are there any options where there are dragons that, um, have closer ties to humanity? I think things might potentially get messy with this group.." She lets out a small cough. (Though, Antigua might be a not so bad a person if with a bit of extra starch in the collar and iron straight laces.)
>>42604536 Really, the book is likely not on the Schola's radar as being immediately dangerous since it's magic had faded. It is, however, a rare book. We've already assembled a plan to just ask to see and/or borrow the book, perhaps copying it. The heist was sort of a knee jerk murder hobo reaction that has since been relegated to being a back up plan and was on its way to being binned in the last thread.
>>42604646Actually it was never kneejerk. It was always calculated to be a plan of absolute last resort that simply required the most planning and prep work out of every other possible option. When making plans, organize them by ease of deployment, necessary planning and prep time, interference with other goals, and potential backlash. Those things combined with our 3-day time frame meant that we had to put the heist plan right at the back after everything else had been taken care of.
>>42604211Hey Quazar, with the fact that I managed to get my hands on one of the Volgon 5th's Napalm guns, do you have anything I can use to well...do until of almost illegal hurt on our future foes? We found 2 solutions in the observatory but I'm not sure if they will be enough.
>>42604195Ah, right you. I was mentally assuming "best attack" in all cases. Yours is actually 4+4 because you're wielding the Hunter Chain, right?Well, two mistakes out of that bunch isn't too bad. ---The UnAccounted; Being A List of They Who Posted But Since Disappared[I] Jonoh - lvl 1[I] Buck - lvl 2[M] Jarax - lvl 1[M] Squeamish - lvl 2[H] Hawk - lvl 2[H] Don Juan - lvl 2[K] Tem'Jin - lvl 2[K] Kewan - lvl 1Hm. That's a big of a team backlog we have there. Brave souls.
>>42605524I wonder where you are getting my damage my good man, but in any case, my gun as no damage, only the ammo within it.(And ooc, what are you going to pick as your new character? Hope you'l chose before the town segment ;) )
>>42605524Flat Four but yes. 2+1+1
>>42605810Forgot name.Also, I think we should just... really leave behind ALL of our explosives. The collateral from them going off is going to be messy with these laws of antiquity in place being enforced by a dragon of light who thinks law takes precedent over survival.
>>42605810Accounted for that, but "whole numbers" was requested.>>42605642( Baseline 4 dmg iron drop. You got six contra bullets, for 5 non ap dmg technically. They hurt. I was assuming they'd be what you actually fired at people you intended to kill. But computing damage for magic classes is a bit difficult because it depends on prep work and decisions with skills and their mag stat whereas with rogues, hunters and knights you can just say "atkx2". Even militia get weird, because they can just load their gun mulitple times before firing so their damage stat also gets odd.An Alquemist is probably "worse" because you could "engrave" your gun before firing, and suddenly you're doing 5 aoe fire explosions on full auto with your gun, you science-magic-maniac!And I don't know what to pick. Undecided. Hovering around the void until I see what we need, if we need anything. Might just pick nothing at all and spend some time relaxing as a non-entity. Besides, Velen, Moore and Kail are all working so hard to see through the veil and accumulate knowledge to plunk my disjointed carcass back together. I might just re-deploy when/if they get around to finishing that up, it's more fun that way. I'd feel awful for stealing their research potential, and who doesn't want to be a badly put together shell of a man pulled back from the Outside in a slow and impractical manner, lacking vital parts of one self and riddled with [Madness]?Also I think we can deploy during the town run, it's a normal floor. Should be okay. )
>>42605963I could engrave my gun, but it needs to be a magic gun. Right now my engrave skill would only work on the cursed fire gun, and the reaper's scythe to dangerous effects (in a good way). I can't engrave a normal weapon unless I also infuse an element into it, something which I do not know yet.
>>42605963To be fair, I wouldn't hope for repopping. We've had experiences of temporal and spacial issues with players in the old games and it generally takes a whole other universe to come back into play.
>>42606102It would? It worked just fine on a vanilla Alquemist's gun.
>>42606102>I could engrave my gun, but it needs to be a magic gun.Seems kind of silly that you could not engrave your starting [Q] weapon.
>>42606165Well so far that's how it works. I have Engrave, so it would only work on a magic weapon. I will gladly spend whatever time it tastes when we get into a fight to help those magic weapons used. Until then, I'm like a poor man's Militia. But I can help.
>>42606204I can make it magic later with infusion, or at least the ammo. If someone else were to be alchemist and take Infusion, we could work together to make some nasty nasty nasty stuff for the group.If I had elemental bullets however, I could engrave my gun and combine the effects of gun + bullets. But we don't have any right now.
>>42606205>Well so far that's how it works.Are you sure?As it reads the description says the output of the magic is dependent on the user and weapons mag stat, and talks of plain weapons. I agree it would do nothing to engrave a sword for a [K], but for other classes it could be helpful.
>>42606153Oh, I know. Not expecting it. Seems a little unfair to those who just die if I get to spawn back as a lvl4 Militia, don't it? But I like thematic story connections, so it's more fun to wait for a neat moment to redeploy than to just redeploy as is. Besides, hopes dies last. With enough dark science and heretical withcraft, everything is possible. Get me out of this weird dimension, Velen! I'm counting on you!--And actually I think you'd be fine just using Engrave on your gun. The element depends on the weapon used, the Runes are independent. As is, they'd just use Physical elements of their composition. Tera, most likely. Material. Everything is apparently aether infused somehow, somewhere. If you fired a bullet, the bullets seem Tera as well. Pyra if you grab some of our Salamanders (Burkhard has 1). You just can't change that without Infusion, which gives you less flexibility. Can totally Engrave Guide wands though, for adding constant effects to their pulses. Get thee on that, Sir Coffee, for Pulse+Ring sounds fun.
>>42606205I'm confused why you think so?You have a book. You engrave from the spell you cast through the book don't you?So if you use a fire book, you'd engrave FireBallBall into the gun wouldn't you?Also Monday, question?If I prepare a spell now, all I do is prepare BallBall for example, and then depending on what I cast it through, it changes what is cast right?So if I cast it with a FireBook and a Water Wand will that get me a combinational element? Or do I cast it using only ONE of those things?
>>42606410Elements aren't runes. You can't engrave fire.
>>42606410>So if you use a fire book, you'd engrave FireBallBall into the gun wouldn't you?No, just BallBall>So if I cast it with a FireBook and a Water Wand will that get me a combinational element?If you were using your above example, the water wand would produce WaterBallBal
>>42606504okay, so does that mean all items naturally have an element that will be applied?So my chain would have an element for example? Maybe not one strong enough to manifest normally, but it's there and it exists and will trigger when I attack something once I have the chain engraved?
>>42606582Possibly. It's something that would have to be tested for wouldn't it?
We just realized something in the IRCBooks can be used to cast spells, they have to be or their elements would no longer make sense.That means that you can engrave a book, or a wand right?And in doing so you increase the number of words cast from a spell each time.So I prepare ArrowRing to be cast from my FireBook which has BallBall engraved on it.My spell is now ArrowRingBallBall+1 Range, +1 Magic, AoE.
>>42606682So I'm launching a FireArrowRingBallBall spell.It'll hit for a good amount, because the BallBall mitigates the arrow's -1 Mag, and strike a decent area.Sure, I only get the engraving for one floor, but that's still pretty awesome.
How does Deflect for [W]eiss Krieger work? Does Eyes Closed count towards the shield's need to be front?
>>42609664>How does Deflect for [W]eiss Krieger work? Dunno>Does Eyes Closed count towards the shield's need to be front?When in Eye's closed, you suffer no penalty for being attacked from behind.
>>42606682>>42606770I'm still on team: "That seems like an unintentional oversight and fits oddly in with the idea of books and runic astral magic".>>42609664Deflect uses your atk to redirect attacks. Conjecture? If your atk > their atk, you control where the attack goes. Wendigo deflected axe strikes, sniper bullets and a bloody rocket, so it seems useful.Eyes Closed makes all your sides count as your front, and your shield only defends your front. You simply move the shield to where it need to be in lightning reflex mega speed, so it would apply. Pro? You're nearly invincible!Con? You... you can't see.
>>42609805>>42609888Hm, I'm gonna need more info on weapons, armor, and engraving. [S]layer sounds like a tactical nuke, but [W]eiss Krieger sounds like a small fortress.
>>42609805No, it specifically counts all as front facing. That means shields count for all sides!>>42610402Sounds about right, especially with the health Krueger gets
>>42610711>No, it specifically counts all as front facing. That means shields count for all sides!Same difference, you only take a penalty to stats if attacked from the rear.
>>42610767Shield only faces one direction, doesn't provide protection for attacks from the side.
>>42610791Alright, we're saying the same thing in different ways. I should have added "and sides", to my original reply, to avoid confusion.Point being the Eyes Closed stance removes any facing based def reductions.
>>42611071Yeah but it makes sword and board much better.
>>42612012I also think with shield bash and the Weiss sword art that makes both hands main hand can allow you to shield bash and attack as a single act.
>>42601213Also, am I wrong in my assessment that the war maiden is best for ranged combatants. Walk around with it, deploy it to be your shield, pick off one of your guns, shoot stuff from behind it?
>>42604211How does holding my launcher and a tinker's kit work with reloading guns.Also>Analyze green solution.Quazar you have anything I can buy off you before Armistan somehow gets supplies for me?
>>42612542Hmm ? I can definitely see the merit of juggling guns with it. Even the idea of using it as a rearlines fortress for multiple party members to use. But as a direct combat weapon it's used to close the gap between melee and ranged and if needed, allow for a weapons change while offering what safety it could for the act. As a shield its one of the strongest things to hold on to It can even be dragged around with chains if holding it is a hassle.
>>42614295Huh ? Oh.. I I Im' good. I already checked out the market and it's honesty a better time to sell. Than to buy it seems. ...
>>42614535Crystals or solutions? I don't have anything on me except these 2 cans of red and green juice one of the other runners found in the lab in the observatory.
>>42612542 It could be used to control terrain to some degree in melee
>>42614401But, and correct me if I'm wrong here, it's two handed, so it's not great for Knights or melee characters as they can do better with one weapon and one shield right?
Jesus Christ, what is this glorious madness?
>>42614888Look up iron hearts on 1d4chan. Can somebody link the Google doc for him?
>>42614888Define glorious, define madness.
>>42614888Glorious madness.Post deployment discussion for last game of Floor. Here's last game: >>42460965--Join in by the rules (included here) and picking a class from here:>>42600231Middle six (Rogue, Hunter, Knight, Militia, Mage, Guide) available from the get go. Next floor is "Town floor", might be a bit but you're still welcome.So yeah, glorious madness.
>>42614859 The application is a little different is all and, like most things, it's a choice. It's not necessarily a worse item to have compared to a ranged combatant because the iron maiden can protect a flank or reduce a gap (controlling terrain) and it also stores additional equipment.
>>42614954Town floors are more exploration and rp than killing everything that moves.
>>42614995Says you hahahahaha. >Buy Spiced JerkyPlaning ahead.
>>42615070Can we not kill and devour people in a town run by a dragon with no appreciable sense of humor and is total lawful neutral?
>>42614888Welcome to the wyld wyrd.We're the Wyld Hunters.Or was it the Wyrd Hunters?Or is it the Wyld Wyrd Hunters?This new runner name is pun-ishing.
>>42614995It's nice that you're such an optimist, Hetros. It really is.
>>42615104I don't plan too, not here at least. But there are Ghoul murders at night...I plan to investigate when I get my stuff back from Jackie.
>>42604326Ancient Avalon of course, before the Mal came. It was once said that realm vaunted what was called " Absolute Law"a magical construct that all but ruled the hearts and realities of Avalon. At such a time, murderers were punished nigh instantaneously, and anyone with hurt feelings recieved the gift of mead. Respawns were free and - ah well you get the idea " " Vidofnir is kind of a cake "
>>42615153We should help with that yeah.
>>42615171Okay, how does that translate for this town? Are we going to get insta smote for transgressions? What are the laws beyond 'don't kill, don't hurt, don't steal,'?
>>42615171Where I come from, calling someone a *cake* is sort of a sweet way to insult someone. (Will Crystal Corridor stuff be available inside the town? Or is this our last chance at this item list for now before we go in?)
I like how there are 6 guilds, one for each class really, except hunter.Order-knightClinic-guideSchola-MageBlood Market-rogueDmz-militiaHouse of M- not really hunters.Guess hunters and rogues both sorta share red street and house of m?
>>42615171Wait...The dragon took his name after a kind of cake?
>>42615384Hunters are very decidedly from the Clinic. Shiraiya clinic is anything but a Guide institution.THink Wyrd science.
>>42615284It iiiiiiiiiiiis. Probably just going to do floor and patch content after this. The map itself is going to be a nightmare to design and might not see light until like a solid week from now :v
Then this is my only chance to use the clinic right now. Unless we find another inside the town.
>>42616161The guy at the clinic did say there was one in town, just that it was a bad idea to visit because of the Ghoul attacks.
>>42616161Given the way the world at large treats Ghouls, it may be best to look into abominable experiments now. Backdoor alley surgery is no good in a town where people are on the watch for ghouls. At least buy some Blood B, it'll keep you well feed and roaming even if you get a face full of bullets. Which, to be honest, you probably will.
>>42616243>pulls hood over gleaming red eyesI shall be very stealthy. And I shall find those who have made us hunted. I will help Ziegfried. I have jerky should he need it. And a Guide is well suited to dealing with ghouls.
>>42616243I kind of want to get grafted with something. But if we go into town I wont be able too because the items are going to get analyzed there first.I wouldn't mind getting my hands on some weasel bones however. Any chance I can borrow the remaining zenny from the group pot? And I regenerate, blood B wouldn't be that good, unless they stack. I'm a monster only to my enemies.
>>42616324Sorry but that is reserved for the people who fought in the last floor and I'd hate to say to them 'nope you don't get any'. If they don't claim it it will go into the next one. As far as I'm concerned that money isn't mine to touch. >>42616320Gilda, be careful.
>>42616320A midnight hunt could be interesting. And there is always more then meets the eye. Those ghouls might have a very valid reason to attack. We do not know the victims, or the causes. Unless they are of the feral types. Then putting them down seems just right.
>>42616390I will lend you the money, I'm swimming in it, just tell me what you need to make the difference. If you want the bones its 1000 + 600 for the parts and surgery.
>>42616390There are places where people will talk. We will find out more there. It will take time. And we could use someone to accompany us. Someone uncursed. For ghouls will be looked upon with suspicion and fear.
>>42616390>Whistle silent tune>transfer 263z to [U]Ziegfried to bring total to 1600, enough to afford surgery and weasel bones.>583-263 = 320z
>>42616448How are you talking to the Llama :v
>>42616559I am in no way responsible for the Llama hearing voices. I swear! I mean its good that he hears that voice too right? Right?!?
>>42616559Clearly Trigger informed his drinking buddy to take care of his account in case of his disappearance or death.
>>42616592He should play the Drinking buddy then. Even if its [temporary]
So should I take Coffee's money then? Or take ghost guy's dosh?
>>42616820The llama only lets those who are named "Inheritor " take from a misplaced owner's bank
>>42616765>Price Checking the sale of a slime, and what grafts it'll open up, to the Clinic since Owl isn't around to check such things. Not actually selling.
>>42616559His new headphones have /really/ good reception.>Smiles>Waves hands aboutWho says I'm talking? Maybe I'm just a shared mass hallucination. Everyone's hearing voices.Maybe I'm just static over your fancy new Llama-Phones; they've got great reception but don't you worry they might be picking up signals from beeyooooond?>ShrugIf you're hearing things I'd totally get that looked into though. Voices could be a sign of a hollow brain. I hear that's bad.Well, not that I can hear anything at the moment, sound doesn't seem to carry in a Nothing.Maybe you're so powerful in the world of business that you're about ready to break into the next frontier of commerce, ghost money and phantom deals! Spirit finance and ectoplasmic economics! Actually nothing carries in Nothing. I don't even know where I am. Nowhere, I think. It's all terribly confusing. There's nothing here to pinpoint location. >>You want me to stop? I'll totally stop if it's annoying. I'm just too indecisive to figure out what to redeploy as. Decisions are haaaaard :(>>42616592>>42616601See? Shared mass hallucination! And drinking buddy instruction. Maybe a shared alcoholic induced hallucination? Something like that. I hear that happens when you drink. Or get shot. Or get eaten by outsiders. One of the two. Three. Something.
>>42616856Just redeploy as an inheritor militia time-twin of Trigger who had weird dreams of what was going on and turns up here?Or as an inheritor named Hilt who is a Knight crazy about SWORDS
>>42616851... Slimes are strange... very base creatures. But as such their bioplasms are great for replacing lost limbs. Whole persons ? Feasible but unethical we do not perform full body reproductions. We would offer you 600 for those fancy slimes however.
>>42616964Oh wow... 600?Jackie, I'm not allowed to sell something like this in place of another team member, it's in Owl's bank, but I think he'd be willing to sell for that price, it's considerably higher than the 80 offered by Red Street. Unless you think the Schola will offer a better price than the Clinic or a better spell? I'm not asking for the money, I just want my iron maiden I loaned him to store it in back and for him to get a good deal out of it.
>>42616990I will not take away someones choices like that. If Owl wishes to sell that slime he will say so.
>>42615171 Magical Lux Cake Girl Meave has an interesting ring to it. EVIL BEWARE! I've heard that cakes are lies though. I suppose it couldn't hurt to speak to the dragon and then see how things look... (this is going to end in fire -or lightning..)
>>42616964Mr.Monkey can you look at this Reaper's Blood and tell me if it would be good for any Grafting operation?>Have Mr.Monkey evaluate the Reaper's Blood for grafting
>>42616964(I will use Coffee's money until the stuff with Trigger is handled then. Later if you want Trig, you inheritor can just give Coffee the money instead. I appreciate but I don't want to upset the Alpaca.)>Take 303 from Coffee for blood pack and grafting, give an IUO>Spend 1600 on a weasel bone graft.>Buy bloodpack B for future mega regen purposes>Money is at 0 now.I shall wear midnight, or...baring that, people's faces kekekeke.
>>42617088 !! I would have you take that the Scholomance or the Order. EIther to be studied or purged. That it travels the floors is quite.. worrying. Reapers are the supposedly the sole remnants of dead worlds to have one reincarnate in the corridors would be folly.
>>42617230As per rules. An inheritor created in the corridor starts at level 1 with 2 skills.
>>42617230I think you need to actually deploy as a character to be an inheritor...Now roll or I'll say the G word at you!
>>42617137Thank you for you services.>wraps Reaper blood very carefully before placing it in my bag.
>>42617137Perhaps I should report the existence of a Reaper wandering the floors. We were attacked by two in the graveyard and while we defeated one the other fled when the Board of Education manifested itself.You know what? I think I shall. If it isn't the same thing as what Mr. Monkey is referring to then all I've done is worry myself.>Approach the Bearded One of the Runner's Guild and tell him of the reaper we encountered in the airship graveyard. Describe its ghostly appearance and strange abilities.
Armistan?Can you describe the difference between Bloqs, Shards, and Crystals of Aetheryte?We have plenty of shards, but what about Crystals and Bloqs? How many shards make up each of those?

>>42617263>>42616840[Puzzled]But then why would anyone deploy in Crystal Corridor, let alone a Town one?An Inheritor on a Floor gets +1 level, +1 skill, tales, possible items, possible floor knowledge. Respawn every action phase, so that will always happen. That's a lvl 2 inheritor with 2 skills + z tales + floor knowledge ( + items ) - it's an inheritor that can class directly into an advance class. That'd be a lvl 2, skill 3 inheritor with items+bank.An Inheritor on Crystal Corridor is 1 lvl, 2 skills, and locked in a class that might be redundant or useless for the next floor without the ability to join in with what the team needs because you have no way of knowing. You're not an advance class either, so you don't add anything special and you've lost your adept gear if you had it. Most item upgrades are lvl locked, and a new start gets a full set of items anyhow so you're decently set. It's a less flexible, less powerful, more boring choice and you opted to sit out the rest of the Floor to get it. What?If I hadn't been goofing around making silly Doom screenshots, I could be an Al[Q]uemist now, instead of stuck in a limbo in some outsider dimension!Further, if I deploy as an Inheritor now, I'm directly costing the group money because they have to pay for me to visit the town. And I might not even be here for the next few weeks, so I'll likely miss the game. That seems /really/ rude, having people pay for time I might not use.I thought I could just handle items and manage accounts since I have the trip that points out it's my accounts. Okay, so there's a certain ghost-barrier in question here, but Velen bought Dimensional Sight. He can act as my interpreter. I trust him not to misinterpret gestures into meaning "Donate everything to Velen Corp".Can I designate an inheritor to manage my financial affairs? I don't want to fuck up /now/, people already took actions based on the assumption of being able to get my stuff and my money.
>>42618159no they don't? Have to pay you to visit the town that is.
>>42616423Uninfected, huh ? I fit the bill on that one, so I guess I could help you guys.And knights are known to be an trustworthy, I'm sure, it'll be an asset in your quest. I just want to visit the Scolomance real quick before we start if that's okay
>>42618294That should be fine. The places where we can ask for rumors are going to be taverns and that sort of thing. More likely to have people in the afternoons rather then the mornings.
>>42618316Great, then it's settled ! We'll combat evil, and clear your good name as ghouls !
>>42618494I've never had a good name to be honest. But I'l be damned if I let stuff I've never even done taint me.
>>42618509Well I think you have a good name ! You are my comrade, after, like all the others on the Furiosa !
>>42617263>>42618013Another question is what's the price of Electricyte. I assume it's worth four at the moment? 3 from the pyras within, and 1 for the lux within?
Good morning thread!I have finished Varian's pic>>42618025>Purchase Aetheryte Shard, Lux x1= 100z>Purchase Aetheryte Shard, Darc x1 = 100zWait what? Where can you purchase Crystal shards?
>>42618846goddamn that's good!
>>42618846 Honestly, I don't know, but I figure if they could be sold by us for zenny, there are other buyers and sellers on the market, so I thought I'd try and see what happens.
>>42618846You purchase them from Armistan, in the DMZ.
>>42618969 Oh. I misread that.. I thought Poka was asking if it was possible, not where... It's like what Hetros said. There's an Exchange section. Look here: >>42601213
>>42618993>>42618969But that picture only says that they exchange them for gold or other elements. In other words they buy them from you but it does not say that they actually sell them for money.
>>42619078We bought them last time it was around?
>>42619105But how did you know you can do that?
>Give [K] Jan 175 z to cover his Warmaiden for now since Trigger's status is up in the air.
>>42619180Because it seemed obvious? Since the entire system is set up to be played as a stockmarket. Put in zenny, get aether crystals, wait a few floors, put the aether crystals back in, get more zenny than you put in?
>>42619201But it did not say that you can do that, that you are allowed to do it. If you could just buy crystals and then sell them off later for profit then you would make more money at the end of the deal. How could you even consider that? That is not how this is supposed to work, that would be cheating the system, you are supposed to get money/items from playing Floors and the spend that money.Getting Crystals is supposed to be a big deal because they a hard to get1) they are not available at every Floor2) If you waste you time mining them then you are not doing your jobWhat is the point of it all if you can just buy them at the shop for cheap, or better yet even make money on trading them?
>>42618159It looks like. You want to remain as Trigger. Who is not effectively alive. But is not effectively dead either. But then you wish to continue playing [mechanically]. As Trigger.This cannot work. You made your choice to remain as an exiled character when an inheritor respawn was possible last floor with 1 skill and 1 level. But now the narrative train has moved on with the assumption that > Trigger Can be Rescued. For A Price.and> He's in another Dimension. Probably in another game system. To do so otherwise would insult the dead. . And realize that when one decides to go kamikaze for a heroic moment. They pay the ultimate price. If this is not acceptable. Do not do it. I'm not here to hold your hand and judge your decisions but dont ever project their outcome on me when all Im doing is throwing levers and drawing pictures. Now, You can /assign/ an inheritor. That person must use your trip or the Llama will get trust issues.
>>42619270Um... Poka, the entire thing is set up to simulate a stockmarket!The entire point of those is buying low and selling high! There's no reason armistan wouldn't sell us crystals since, presumably, that's why he's running the market so he too can do so...And since the crystals are a critical component of at least one class's mechanics, then it wouldn't make sense for them to be TOO hard to get.>>42619335Monday, we talked with Trigger in IRC, he's not against rerolling and is even planning on rerolling an inheritor, he's just a bit loopy and stubborn from 36 hours straight wakefulness, since he was against spawning before he could figure out which class would be the best one to spawn his inheritor as. He's gone to bed and will likely do a full reroll when he's up or at the next deployment once he's seen the class spread for it.
>>42619360>Um... Poka, the entire thing is set up to simulate a stockmarket!>The entire point of those is buying low and selling high! There's no reason armistan wouldn't sell us crystals since, presumably, that's why he's running the market so he too can do so...But that is cheating the game's economy we are not supposed to cheat in the game.
>>42619382I... don't think it's cheating when it's deliberately set up to allow this to happen? Zenny is not exactly a precious or limited substance in this game, we get tons of it.
>>42619382besides, the system has much more utility in naturally growing and expanding our portfolio of aether crystals for the usage by Al[Q]uemists than reselling them for a pitiful 100 zenny.
>>42619180>>42619360 (etc..)Good Lord, why don't we just bloody ask Monday and skip the dramatics? It can be as simple as a yes/no answer..>>42619335Monday, is it possible to purchase Aetheryte Shards from the Exchange with zenny as listed here? >>42601213
>>42619270> Ah I thought for sure I posted an explanation on the Aetheryte Index. I may have also been hallucinating spiders during a a 25 hour day. =Aetheryte Index. A Runner's guide to striking it Rich. =The Aetheryte Index available on your Local DMZ is a central hub for aetheryte trade and exchange. The Great Volgon Warmachine relies on the use of these *skip* To begin insert zenny into the slo *skip*The denomination for shards is 100 zenny. However it is not 100 zenny all the time since supply and and demand factors into the pricing, The multipliers under each element determines their current worth in the market. Buy 100 zenny shards by the amount indicated by the multiplier. For example. Jim wishes to buy Pyras priced at 3.0, he must then expend 300 zenny to get just one crystal. Similarly a shard with a 2.0 would sell for 200, and a 1.0 would sell for 100. Sometimes a surplus of crystals will be available and its worth would be .5 and sometimes .25. This *skip*Sell or Trade your elemental shards Every aether crystal is priced according to its demand at the time. For every Point in their EI [Elemental Index]is equivalent to 100 zenny per 1 shard.6 shards per 1 Crystal. 6 crystals per Bloq. Alternatively when trading something that is worth 6 times more than what you are buying you will immediately get a larger size classification. Example.John has 10 shards of Pyras, Bill has 2 Crystals of Darq. Currently the index between the two is Pyras 12.0 with Darc at 2. This means that every shard of Pyras John has holds the same value as 1 of Bill's Crystals. And if Bill wished to purchase all of John's Shards, he would need 8 more Crystals. But on the Next Floor, it could be the reverse. And John, who is now in possession of 10 Darc Crystals, worth 12.0 on the Index may cash out with 72,000 zenny. All . In. One. Day. This dream scenario doesn't happen often however if you keep at it and trade in our wonderful system you too can be BIG !
>>42619627so we have 3 darc bloqs, which is 3*6*6 or 108 darc shards.
Now Some Ground Rules folks. 1. Dont trade fused elements. your basic 6 only ? Please and thanks. 2. 1 Market action only. Buy, Sell, or Trade. 3. We can only sell You shards, but Bloqs or Crystals we can trade for. 4. Trading Crystals cash amongst each other is fine. I can't regulate your pockets after all. I can only tempt you. 5. The Market updates every floor. As events both catastrophic or Sublime affects supply and demand. I'm not about to share you my notes kids. Hell, even Odin gave his eye to build Asgard, after all and even I wouldn't trade market secrets for piece of that Valkrye action yeah ? Now GO !
>>42619703>Request 1 Pyras Crystal from the Group Bank>If granted, trade for 1 Lux Crystal, 1 Aquas Crystal>Deposit both back into Group Bank.
>>42619655" Good Gravy. How in the 9 hells did you get a darc bloq ? "
>>42619760"Charon had a Pyras Bloq, then traded it to you for 3 Dark Bloqs right before we took you on board."
>>42619773" I didn't think you had that kind of Nest Egg, and here I thought I would be getting some airship parts on loan. Well it seems you convinced me to go all out with the outfitting. If you can find a shard cutter in Luxendarc I can see about ordering some parts from the ShipWrights as well.. Judging by the way the market is going it's infeasible that the horse you're betting on is going to slow up more than it already is.
>>42619864"I'm not the one who owns the Darc Bloqs mind you! That's Charon's call to make I'm afraid! He's given one to Zeigfried to have his restraints enchanted, hopefully in such a manner that it'll cause a darc flare that'll heal Zeigfried and damage his attacker every time he's struck is what I understand of it.What exactly are you asking for the Shardcutter? If we slice the Darc Bloqs up that we can afford more ship parts for our vessel? What sort of ship parts?"
>>42619773Wait with that kind of Darc yield wouldn't summoning someone from another realm really BE feasible ?Questi: Those bloqs can easily power a spell strong enough to pierce the veil of dimensions. But something's bothering me about this. The potential magical output is nowhere near in the same category as the price increase.>Crystals = only twice as strong as shards.>Bloqs = only twice as strong as Crystals. What gives ? Armistan: Ah you figured it out. Then it would seem I can say this much. Volgon Command simply wants Crystals /that/ much. The padding that they add to zenny is just that to ensure that the direction of Crystals go their way. Latvian: I can imagine a few reasons ... but with the amount of Zenny this can yield would it then become possible to tip the situation to our Favor ?
>>42619906Armistan. " The Skyward Shipwrights are among the leaders of Airship creation. It may not be possible to BUY one of their Aether Vessels but a Sail, Armaments, or perhaps a layer of Mythril timber are some features off the top of my head :v
>>42619995"Okay, seriously boys. This isn't my call to make, I don't think it's even Jackie's call to make because the Bloqs belong to Charon, who took the risk mining them when everything was going to hell back when we picked you up Questi.">Sighs"Can you guys tell us exactly how much of those Bloqs we would need to rip open the veil, and to what purpose? I'm going on the assumption Trigger is dead as a doornail, having been dropped into the lap of a demon of entropy, and I wouldn't want to insult his sacrifice by accidentally summoning that along with him. It'd be an insult to what he did for us all.How many of the Darc Bloqs would you need to rip open the veil?Armistan? Why do we need to cut up the Darc Bloqs to get you what you need for the ship parts? What ship parts exactly are you buying? And how much is necessary for them? 3 Darc Bloqs is worth 10,800z, and potentially much more than that given the way prices fluctuate. So I'm curious what exact amount of money you need for these things?I think we all need this information before the team, especially Charon whose Bloqs they are, can make a call one way or another.Also what are the chances of using one to enchant Ziegfried's restraints the way he wants to? We gotta factor that in as well."
>>42620036"Do we need a sail even? I though the front mounted motor handled that for us? or is it just to conserve fuel? What armaments could we purchase? And again, how many of the Darc Bloqs would you need?"
Oh. I hadn't realized a bloq was quite so much as that. But from what it sounds like, maybe using a bloq for enchanting would be excessive? It might be better to split that into crystals, use one of those for enchanting, and use the rest for other group needs, possibly?I might exchange one of my Darc Bloqs for a Lux Bloq...and then probably put them in the bank again. I hadn't realized how much I was carrying.
>>42620145"I'd wait on the responses on exactly how much you'll get for them from our experts before making any decisions, otherwise I'd advise using them to diversify the types of crystals you got if you have any left over after these various things they're suggesting doing with them. The ship is definitely a longterm investment, and if we can rescue Trigger, or whatever is left of him without risking the Entropy demon? I'm all for that as well. At the end of the day though Charon, those bloqs are yours and what you do with them is entirely up to you."
Can i get a reference to the crystal symbols to elements? On a phone so difficult to see
>>42620197In order, left to rightLux, Terras, Aquas, Wind, Pyras, Darc
>>42620047"We don't /need/ a sail. But the motor runs on Aether Crystal and it makes flight viable. Listen 10,000 is a drop in the bucket, very good chances you'll run into more really. So if these other things take precedence I completely understand. But Airship Upgrades are in the market of around a couple thousand to 10s of thousands so its no small amount really. I'll get you a listing when we get there " Latvian: " If there is a way to find them reliably then 1. If not we would need 2 "
>>42620221"Find what reliably? The Darc Bloqs? or the spells to rip open the veil?"
>>42620229*Narrows Eyes*" Your friend ? I bid you calm hunter. I only offer suggestions we did not come to reap your haul. Come, Armistan we must leave them to it. "
>>42620261"I'm sorry, I truly misunderstood. I didn't mean any offense. I'm still having trouble accepting that Trigger is anything but dead, thinking of him in terms of 'hard to find' or 'easy to find' do not come easily to me because of that. To me, and for the moment, he's just dead, and I think such because to think otherwise, to try and retrieve him and fail while expecting him to be alive would be like watching him die a second time. I meant no offense Latvian."
>>42620295"And to be clear, I didn't think you were trying to take -anything- from us. You've been nothing but helpful and truthful with us Lady Summoner, I was simply trying to get to grips with what you were talking about specifically in that case, I'm a simple man and easily confused by too many topics going back and forth at once."
>>42620321You should leave her be. y-You may not know it but the idea of bringing someone back from the brink like that is something she blames herself f -for. . It's also a Red herring that comes with Summoning.. frankly I think she should just let go and move forward herself..
Finished Jenny's picture.
>>42620477>rainbowsOh your poor eyes I'm so sorry :< The design is awesome tho
>>42620505Thank you! I did use inspiration from FF dragoon designs, I deemed those to be most appropriate to fill in the gaps.
>>42620477My god that's gorgeous.
>>42620670That looks amazing!
>Buy Stun RoundsDon't we have a lot of Pyras Crystals? We should trade a few for the other elements while we have a beneficial trading ratio.
>>42620890Already done so to diversify a little. If somebody else would take out one of the pyras crystals and trade it for another lux and another aquas crystal it would put us at 3 Pyras Crystals (2 on the ship), 2 Lux, 2 Aquas, which will set us up for better trading in the future.
>Exchange 1x Darc Bloq for 1x Lux Bloq>Bank 1x Darc Bloq and 1x Lux BloqSo that Bloq I gave to Zieg you guys are free to use. I'm still thinking you should probably split the thing, since combining something that's worth 3600z currently and 7200z on a normalized market with the restraints seems a bit excessive. Could get six combined items, or make some solvent, or any number of other things with it. If we combine it with the restraints it might be too high level for Zieg to even use.
>>42621323Might we perhaps at least see how the Scholomance reacts to it? I'd love to hear their professional opinion on the mater... -cough cough-
>>42621359Admit it, you just want to wave your bloq around, isn't it ?

>>42619335[ Oooh. Okay it all makes sense now. I would never want to give the Llama Trust trust issues. I was assuming items were seperate from character since they were trip-locked; I figured that was a way to organize accounts even when the "holder" was dead since this entire crystal corridor space was kind of playfully off game and proceeded with the assumption that it was fine to move things around because people were already talking about concepts like levels and classes and stuff so being dead didn't seem to "matter".Since it isn't, that obviously don't work. And the inheritor is needed. Sorry. I don't do good decisions when I have been up for a day and a half with the flu.You draw neat pictures and flip fun levers. I would like to assume I'm not projecting, and I don't mind being misplaced as this character in the least. It was fun. Burkhard wrote a speech; what more can anyone ask for? A speech! I was just trying to sort out items without locking myself into a new class choice straight away. It's a skirmish game, people die. That's fine!... Although my puzzlement with the inheritor system stands, since it doesn't so much make death a big deal as it does the proper deployment timing. That's an interesting choice. And it's much less harsh than people were assuming originally. That's good. I like it. Still don't want to die but it's not crippling.Well, all the outstanding z transaction are taken care of and all is sorted. No ghost induced Alpaca headache for anyone or llama trust issues. All is well.I'll go eat some more painkillers and faint. Again.>hallucinates a tea party>oh no rainbow knights ]
Alright, given that using a Darc Bloq is going to be... excessive for Ziegfried's restraints here is what I'm going to do. With Beckie's Permission of course she she is holding the thing.>Take the Darc Bloc from Beckie and store the Darc Bloq in the group bank>Take a Pyracyte Crystal from the group bank.>Exchange the Pyracyte Crystal for 3 Darc Crystals.>Place 2 Darc Crystals in the group bank>Give Becky the remaining Darc Crystal

>>42631123 Do we have an exact quantity of the number of blocks needed to try to get Trigger back? We can take whatever is left that we're willing to spend and see what's available at the shipyard. Sails would be very useful in future savings and as supplemental propulsion if the Furiosa's engines, or whatever, fail at a crucial moment.
>>42625613Shouldn't we bring a darc bloq with us to a shard cutter to get materiel and money for the ship upgrades? or are we saving our two remaining Darc Bloqs to pull Trigger, assuming he's still alive, out? >>42631327 1 if we know exactly where he is. 2 if we don't. Must be Darc Bloqs. My assumption is that it doesn't matter what sort of bloqs they are for the shard cutter to get us cash for air ship upgrades. Sails, at the very least, would be useful I imagine.
>>42631039GLORIOUS, tell your GF that her art amazing!
>>42631010>>42631123>>42631327Latvian said 2 dark bloqs would be needed to find someone whose place is unknown. We learned that power wise it works like this : 4 shards = 2 crystals = 1 BloqSo I am saving that 1 Darc Bloq and the 2 Darc Crystals for saving Trigger. Since we need 2 Darc Bloq's worth of power. For selling Bloqs its a bit different. Its 36 shards = 6 Crystals = 1 BloqAnd that is where the money comes from for selling Bloqs. If we get a Bloq which is 3 times the default value of 100z then that is 10800z. Right now a single Darc Bloq is 'only' worth 3600 zenny.

>>42626801Aetherwind: Movement can happen diagonally.Will damage a character or object if it collides with a solid object. [Damage is 3 force or however many tiles have been moved] Can pass over chasms but will have trouble moving a character *up* an uneven chasm. It works on enemies and movable objects [furniture like beds, treasure chests, and even some boulders and statues are movable.]Radiance: Self targets Guides, and Channeled only. Tipped Ewer: The effects of tipped Ewer are constant like water physics. Once a person is channeled, HP is shared between yourself and them, ideally achieving an equal amount [with HP maximums being the barrier here] the amount can't be determined becuase this function can also apply to enemies whom you can channel via ward or wand. Channeled targets "die" Hp will continue to be distributed around until the whole pot is zero. Even at 1 hp and 3 targets, all targets are still alive because of that shared .33 hp. However once the whole thing goes to -1 it's all over for those linked. All targets go into critical and channeling ends because the Guide is no longer concious The weaknesses are not shared since the physical bodies aren't shared, only HP is shared, not damage. TIpped ewer with sacred geo can't work, actually because it is a passive skill that only applies to Channel, which is a skill that can only target up to two people besides the Guide. Scuttle is both a Finish off and a pre-loot action in one. Parts will be itemized on the floor before you decide to take a free action to take them. Rushdown.Pushes into the enemy tile and moves them back one space or the first available space or takes a stun if it has no choice. Against larger targets you damage them but its no guaranteed that you'll move them. If pushed off a ledge it will take ADDED damage based on the fall. This is possible even with normal rules. So is [pushing] allies, the limit to pushes will always be one tile, however. -
>>42635554>Radiance: Self targets Guides, and Channeled only.When you say "Channeled" do you mean it can be combined with channel to radiate from someone else? Or that it can be cast from a warded tile? Sorry for my confusion.
>>42626822Weapon Breaker: In the event that weapon breaker strikes a natural target, DEF of target is applied before it takes ATK damage. It should also go on to say that this stat damaging function applies to shields with DEF that you wish to strike [to death]. Weapon Breaker is a free action stance that is applied once per active turn and maybe taken off before end of turn or start of next. While on, any atk damage you do will target weaponry and hand equipment. If it does not have an atk stat, it will target /something/ and it will do so until it is 0 and destroyed. Burn the Bodies - Burn the bodies is an act. As such one can determine when to use it but it will be indiscriminate. The resulting pyre last for a turn and it will grant adjacent targets +1Mag stacking. This is because of an effect called [Soul Saturation]>When are you going to bedI just woke up . _.
>>42631568W-wait that's not exactly how Crystals amplitudes work. L-let me explain kero.~mm hmm~In quantity and strength aetheryte crystals don't give a consistent yield. While one may split a crystal into 6 denominations, their power is not sixth'd it is only halved. so let's say the power of a shard is measured at a "4" a crystal of it would be "8", and bloq of it would be a "16". If chipped or fractured the crystals lose their power considerably but plateau at half. I'll give you that info for free before Latvian accidentally tears open the wrong whole. Speaking of which I did some calculations on soul retrieval and came out with the same function as she did."20 Darc Kero Power to create a slipstream between here and the current astra that our friend maybe in. Another 10-15 Kero to influence the phase plane enough to find and retrieve them " If what Latvian said about being able to find him is true then one would only need the one bloq with her power making up the difference .
>>42636485"So do we need a full bloq or would the crystals do? By your math, the crystals are 8 Kero Power each, and the Bloqs are 16 right?But Bloqs trade for 6 crystals, so we can trade a Bloq for 6 crystals, making it so we'd have 48 Kero Power Total yes? Or Trading the Pyras Crystal for a Darc Crystal would net us 24 DarcKero Power? Which would suffice for the ritual yes?"
>>42635554>Channel, which is a skill that can only target up to two people besides the Guide.I was not aware of this limitation. I'll make a note of it.
>>42635982>I just woke up . _.Go back to sleeeeeep.
>>42636550No, that sounds incorrect...I think it's not a linear scale. I think it simply means that a Bloc is better than a Crystal is better than a Shard, and 2 crystals don't give you the equivalent of a Bloc. You'd have 2 uses of "8" Kero, which does not equal "16" Kero because the scale isn't quite linear like that. Likely also the Summoner provides a bit of power themselves for the ritual tthey're enacting, so with variability of power it can be difficult to know exactly how much power one needs. We'd need the book to give extra information on Star Signs and Star Codes for the location, so we get a less blunt power requirement. Then a single bloc + the summoner's power will work. But if you give someone 2 crystals thinking it "equals" a bloc, you get a wrong result. It doesn't quite match. It brings up an interesting question though. Volgons really want Crystals for their Science, but could an Astral Runic Mage use a crystal aligned with their current Element super-charge a spell?
>>42632817Lurk: This is once per floor. Make it count :v>>42634658Probably not but skills become available in Towns that only specific base classes can learn otherwise they pay more to get them. There might be an Elite or Royal rank or something along those lines but they will only accompany gear changes. and are tracked by level. It's honestly for people that choose to remain base class at that point. Skills will always appear and they will always happen every town floor. And it's either " The Circus has come to Town " kind of skills or it's " This is how you make proper coffee. And Kill a Man. ">>42635657The First One.>>42636550" Kero Power doesnt measure power in mass but in amplitudes. As I said Crystals are quite forgiving when broken to pieces this is true. a crystal can be broken into 6 shards, be shared between 6 people and each one will enjoy roughly /half/ the power of the original. And while 6 casters can come together and make up 3 crystals' worth of work overtime they can't possibly compare to doing 1 crystal's work in one /instant/ It's the difference between lifting a stone 10 times or Shifting a boulder once. It doesn't compare.With that said, it would require 6 crystals to get the power of one Bloq but they would have to be recombined /together/ and well here's the kicker... They can't be recombined together. It takes years for crystals to form like water dripping with super saturated minerals instead this time its Aether in air. So making the choice to cut a bloq is a lot like deciding between selling something or saving it for a huge one off spell "
>>42637322Sorry a late question just came in.M[i]litiaBattle RhythmCan this allow someone to reload a gun while their other hand is occupied? IE a 1 hand gun and a shield.
>>42637243YOU GET IT ! THANK THE STARS YOU GET IT ! AND IT'S PRECISELY THAT Why the Volgons' motives are suspect. Their warmachines dont run on pebbles alone. One would need machines that are powered by bigger and bigger bloqs of elemental aethercytes to do what they keep doing. And as /you/ suspect, elemental aethercytes can be processed to channel a payload of magic stronger than most runic spells, which only draw the aether from the air and the individual !
>>42637322>Lurk: This is once per floor. Make it count :vWhat counts as 'direct sight' as in walking 1 square infront of a front facing enemy unit? What about 1 square to either side?>>42637642Well... if the volgon's had discovered a method of recombining shards into Bloqs... wouldn't that deliver the results you're describing?They need bigger and bigger bloqs? They can't get those by any method we know, except mining, but it is obvious they are eager to get aether shards in VOLUME. Massive Volume, and want to keep them flowing THEIR way, not out.If they had a method of recombining shards and crystals into Bloqs in order to power their warmachines, it would explain their desperate need for more shards, especially if there's a slight deficit over all, like it takes 12 shards to recombine into a crystal, and 12 crystals into a bloq. If it were even slightly more efficient than that, it'd be a good reason for them grabbing them in bulk.And the ability to do so might also explain how they're able to maintain such a massive empire compared to every other nation that has fallen apart under the duress of the Maleboga?
>>42637775Lurking: The LOS of a characters is 5 tiles ahead and 3 to the side However in the case of this skill it's a 3x3 space in *front* of them.
>>42637775I know of a few ways a Volgon could transform shards into bloqs. "Place a shard in a gun, and fire it at someone who owns a bloq. Done " Quaz: Bwahahahahaahhaaha Ismael: What's so funny.Quaz: It's true, isn't that why you said the joke ?
>>42638321"Look, all I'm saying is that you guys said it was odd that they wanted so many aether shards when you can't recombine them, and they need Bloqs and lots of them for their purposes? So while you say it's 'impossible' for them to have done so... it would explain their need?
>>42638321Ah, Volgon Economics. >>42637642Hmm... So I wonder... Should we try to acquire some shards of a corresponding elemental type, and then give them to a mage willing to experiment? Maybe channeling a spell through a matching elemental shard would enhance the spell. Somewhat like our previous time shenanigangs using a millenium crystal to revert a boat.With a Shard though, so we don't over-step. And something to easy. If someone gets a Pyra Shard and uses a Fire book, it should be obvious from the amount of flames. If it works, it could be useful in an emergency or if we need something special on demand.And I wonder what they're feeding the shards though. Alquemistry research, perhaps?
We should build a giant golem out of aether crystals and shove a terminus crystal in it.A giant walking mechanical living town fortress of magical doom.What could possibly go wrong?
>>42638781This sounds like a dangerous endeavor. I am all for it.
>>42625613That leaves us with:2 darc blocs, 1 lux bloc 4 Pyracyte , 1 lux,1 aquas, 2 darc, crystals1 lux, 1 darc shardin the group bank.Given that, Jackie, and more information about shards, we might want to consider trading 2 of our Pyracyte Shards for 1xLux, 1xAqua, 1x Tera. That gives us 2 pyra, 2x lux, 2x aqua, 2 darc and 1x Tera crystals, which is a decent split of everything with plenty of potential for enhancement and fusion.

The next thread will be an unofficial update thread the townfloor will be created once content for it is ready
>>42639055You are wrong in your accounting.There is 1 Darc bloq, 1 Pyracyte crystal, 2 darc crystals, 1 lux crystal and 1 aquas crystal in the group bank.There are 2 pyracyte crystals on the ship. I am not going to use those as future turns against Malebogia makes those far too valuable. Charon holds 1 darc bloq and 1 lux bloq in his personal account. He did not deposit them into the group bank.
>>42640491It's not really important, but I have two questions regarding the corridor sheet thing:>Is Marsellus Wallace's Soul for sale?and >Is that reward sheet that says something like "Those who expose this - " anything of note?
>>42641458 I guess I should note that those questions are purely idle curiosity
