Likewise.
Gendou Ikari is basically Gregory House in Kaminashades. This is FACT.

Going out of town from the 8th to the 14th and probably won't be able to post very much during that time.

Edit: Well... I'm here and have internet access, and parts of this thing I'm at are quite boring. So... I'll be around. :D

Sorry to hear about the boredom. I'm fairly busy through the rest of the day, but should be active as of Friday.

Unfortunately weekends are slow for posting for most people, but hopefully we can get some dialogue on where we're going from here. Frankly I'm not sure why we're even bothering in the city again since we have the option of going off to the Mucklestones, jumping down into the Underdark, and seeking out that Aboleth. Of course, that was just one of our options, but it seemed like one presented to us to help provide some direction. :)

Nothing like an assassin watching you constantly to show he cares! :P
Does Marlowe have Darkstalker? If not, how far away did he stay from RJ? If he kept within Darkvision distance most of the time (which, incidentally, she's invisible to), she'd have picked him up with Blindsense from Blind Fighting. :D

Whoever said he was being sneaky about it? :P

But yeah, that doesn't extend to the time she spent lurking in back alleys apart from the rest of the group.

How can the Kobold be Exalted and be a fan of Pun-Pun? Doesn't approving of outrageously evil things kind of negate the whole "being good" thing?  :twitch

Nah, he could just be confused. And who said Pun-Pun is evil, anyway?  :smirk And did I actually say this kobold likes Pun-Pun? I forget...

Edit: Oh yeah, I guess I did say something that might have led you to believe that he was a "fan". He didn't sound all that sure of his words, though. More wishful thinking/whistling in the dark than anything, probably. :P

Well, Pun-Pun hasn't done anything really 'evil' yet, per se. :smirk Taking out the sun might count as it's the basis of life, but that was most likely just a display of power and in fictional settings having the sun go out doesn't do anything anyway unless it's a plot point. :P

However, the kobold's exalted status has made me curious. We should kill him so we can look at him in the NPC Graveyard. :smirk

I don't give up so easily, though. I think the Almighty Pun Pun will not let us down. I'm sure he'll work things out.

How is Pun-Pun evil? He killed at least one god, and we have no idea if he's done that to any other gods already. He's causing mass panic/hysteria. He's a regular terrorist, and if that's not evil I don't know what is. I'm not saying the kobold agrees with everything Pun-Pun has done, but he sure seems to have faith in him.

Killing gods in and of itself doesn't make you evil. Arguably killing good gods probably does, but as long as he balances that out by killing equal numbers of evil gods, that just keeps him the same according to D&D alignment, right? :D

(As far as the plot goes, he has killed a number of gods by the way, I just haven't made a proper list and posted it anywhere, yet. :P Rumor has it that the reason the sun went out is because he killed the sun god.


I'm not saying whether Pun-Pun is or isn't evil. You can decide that for yourselves. I'd say it is mostly irrelevant, though. He is responsible for worldwide chaos, anarchy, and bad things, and your goal is to undo what he's done. Whether he's a nice guy or simply misguided doesn't really make much of a difference, does it? :P

Typically, the danger of powerful and misguided is that someone MIGHT end up finding him a guide.

Granted, when you're one of the most powerful creatures in the fucking multiverse, it's hard to place yourself in a position of being manipulated. But this has been done before, and is in fact a staple of many good stories. (FF6 arguably being part of the staple. Granted Gestahl wanted to rule the world by using the statues' powers, but control was all he was after. Kefka tagged along and nudged him the right way so he could seize power at the sign of best opportunity, which he effectively did, and then plunged the world into ruin, because he felt like it.)

Marlowe doesn't care if Pun-Pun is evil. He just wants his fucking job back. :P

Edit: Just in case you happened to miss it. :D

[spoiler]
Oh, Phaedrus?

I am half-considering dipping (or wading) into swordsage, but swapping one of the disciplines for this, reflavoured to work with crossbows.

Do you approve? Or if not, are there any changes I can make to gain your approval? :D

(Basically, I'm trying to add a little more combat utility to Marlowe beyond "hide and death attack, rinse and repeat." It gets boring to spend every other round doing essentially nothing, and if we get ambushed again, I'd like to be able to contribute to the combat more than I did last time. :P )

Sorry, I just didn't have time to look at it when you first posted it (and I forgot afterward...). It looks fine. In fact, it looks a bit weak. I'll probably rework some of it to beef it up slightly. I love the flavor though, and I don't know why they thought it should only apply to guns. It should work fine for "normal" D&D ranged weapons, IMO.

Thanks! I haven't heard of any other ranged ToB disciplines apart from Falling Star, and that just didn't seem to fit properly.

Knowledge (Religion) to identify the things? If they're shadows, RJ might have seen one before, as part of the first legacy ritual for Umbral Awn.

Knowledge (Religion) (1d20+3=5)

IC is getting back at me for those crits I had in the first few encounters, I think.
