I think I forgot to assign my psicrystal a personality. I'm thinking of taking either Nimble (+2 to Initiative), or Sympathetic (+3 to Sense Motive). I don't remember if Sense Motive is a class skill for Ardents, though...

Whoa, what? Psicrystal personalities actually do something? Since when? I must have missed something in the book.  :lmao

Is it ok if I take the Sympathetic (Sense Motive) one? I usually take the Nimble one (Initiative), since I find Initiative to be invaluable, but in this game I get the feeling that Sense Motive will come in pretty damn handy...

I'm planning on going towards the Slayer PrC later, and that does have Sense Motive as a class skill for sure. So even if Ardent doesn't (no book handy to check), I can get by on Wisdom + psicrystal bonus for now, and catch up on skill points later (if we ever get that far...).

Actually, I remembered what it was I was thinking of. It was the Spirit Shaman's spirit guide class feature. The spirit guide can have a personality but it doesn't make a difference what it is.

I'm going to respond to this in the OOC thread where there's a little more room for discussion.

And I don't really understand Bios' last couple of statements: Why would saying that the Achaeans beat the Trojans make him unpopular here? We are in Greece, right? Isn't this a commonly known fact?

While we are in Greece, of course, we're in the part of Greece that fought on the side of Troy. Troy lost. Historical accuracy aside, you can hardly expect someone who goes about saying that, based on the evidence, it was apparent the Trojans were going to lose, and trying to sell the book to the people who lost, might be worried about himself. Also, little hints dropped in his speech here and there, Bios is also borderline paranoid. Just sayin'.  :smirk

Anyway, to break it down even simpler:
a) The party is in Thracia (Northeastern Greece)
b) Thracia fought for Troy, against "the Greeks"
c) Bios's opinion falls under the headline of "Trojans had it coming"

Bios figures his book wouldn't be popular in Thracia. It's political. It'd be kinda like rubbing it in the faces of the fans that their favorite sports team LOST 10 years ago. Oh, and their team died.

Ah, ok. I had overlooked that little tidbit. Makes more sense, now. :D

And Bios should be paranoid, if from nothing else than knowing the things he knows. I think he probably has more to be paranoid about than that, though... :P

Oh, you mean the things man was not meant to know? Yeah, it has that effect on people.  :smirk

edit: Oh, and I'll give you a freebie. He doesn't know anything about Khas's romantic interludes, I was taking a swipe at you for not picking up the not-so-subtle hints (about Bios's paranoia and reasons for not publishing his book).

Quite Possibly.
Witty sayings? Nah, not right now. Currently playing Dwarf Fortress and League of Legends. I really recommend League of Legends.

I'd still *like* to play. I don't know that it'd happen.

i'd *like* to play, but with my computer partially-functional as it is, I can't really expect to be able to post anything long.

People are still checking the forum, so I'd recommend 'kickstarting' the game by moving us forward a bit. Then send all the players PMs, and you should be able to reset.
