    In case anyone missed it, The Stormlight edition of Call to Adventure is up for preorder now. At US$45 + $10 off of shipping (use code TENOFFSHIPPING), the deluxe version is a no brainer for me. :D
  • HerowannabeWed Mar 25, 2020 1:21 am
    Right? And I get the feeling that the worse is yet to come. Still, I'm optimistic about the future. :)
  • ClaincyMon Mar 23, 2020 5:04 am
    Glad your alright, it's quite a year isn't it?
  • HerowannabeThu Mar 19, 2020 8:40 am
    So we had a 5.7 earthquake yesterday. The first one that big in almost 20 years. That was exciting. Nobody injured, and only some moderate damage to some older buildings, but still.
  • KurkistanWed Mar 18, 2020 12:05 pm
    I'm always down for some MAG, if someone with more skill/free time wants to spin a campaign up.
  • KurkistanWed Mar 18, 2020 12:05 pm
    I'm WFH for the next few weeks at least as of Monday. I work in software development for an electronic health records company (so that's been interesting), so not much disruption in my work schedule.
  • Sir JerricTue Mar 17, 2020 12:11 pm
    Perhaps I should get back to drafting my homebrew tweaks for a Era 2 West Marches game again. Would provide something to discuss, and might even get a game launched eventually.
  • ClaincyTue Mar 17, 2020 8:50 am
    Glad you're going ok so far. Ah, yeah fireplace installation isn't something you can really do from home, not your own at least. I don't have the capacity to run a game right now, but I'd happily join one if someone else were able to.
  • HerowannabeMon Mar 16, 2020 11:46 pm
    Fine. There have only been a handful of cases in Utah but still they’ve shut schools and most everything down, so I feel like we’re ahead of the game here. Unfortunately my current job (installing fireplaces) is not one that I can do from home, so unless things change drastically over the next few weeks then my schedule won’t be changing much. Otherwise I’d suggest getting a MAG up and running while we have the downtime for it. I’ve been itching to play for a while.
  • ClaincyMon Mar 16, 2020 4:07 am
    It hasn't taken off yet in Aust, the next week or two will probably determine how bad it gets here. How are you going Hero?
  • Sir JerricSat Mar 14, 2020 9:48 am
    I'm doing fine. Got told I have to telework for a least two weeks, but that doesn't actually give me any more free time, since my commute was short.
  • HerowannabeSat Mar 14, 2020 9:39 am
    Man I’ve been checking this site every now and then for months but apparently I have to let the page sit open for ~10 seconds before it displays any new chat posts, so this whole time I thought nobody was posting anything. :roll: So how is everyone surviving this whole Coronavirus thing?
  • ClaincySat Mar 07, 2020 5:18 am
    Yeah :( I have a somewhat different alloy of law game I want to run, one that should continue smoothly even if some people aren't able to post for a little (as often happens :P). But I still can't type enough to run it yet :/ Stupid thumbs are taking a long time healing.
  • Sir JerricWed Mar 04, 2020 10:16 pm
    (Somehow I managed to open my bookmark within seconds of your post. I promise I wasn't actually lurking that desperately.) :whistle:
  • Sir JerricWed Mar 04, 2020 10:14 pm
    I suppose we could start something again . . . like a discussion or something.
  • KurkistanWed Mar 04, 2020 10:13 pm
    Unfortunately, yeah.
  • Sir JerricSun Mar 01, 2020 11:26 pm
    Happy next month! . . . It has gotten rather quiet around here.
  • Sir JerricSat Feb 01, 2020 10:22 pm
    Happy new . . . month!
  • Justin CaseThu Jan 02, 2020 11:24 pm
    Happy new year too you as well!
  • Sir JerricWed Jan 01, 2020 9:05 am
    Happy New Year!

    Must be running the Elendel line. ;)
  • Justin CaseSat Dec 28, 2019 10:40 pm
    So... My kids watch a show called, "thomas the train engine" its about a steam locomotive. One of the trains favorite catch phrases is, "Cinders and ashes". If only my kids new. Makes me chuckle everytime i hear it.
  • Justin CaseFri Dec 27, 2019 11:01 pm
    Yea... Those guys are the worst.
  • Sir JerricWed Dec 18, 2019 9:28 am
    By much peering around the corners, with additional caution to be certain that no spike wielding shadows are creeping up on us as we observe.
  • Justin CaseTue Dec 17, 2019 1:22 pm
    This "lurking" you all speak of, how is it done?
  • ClaincyWed Nov 20, 2019 2:26 am
    I'm also lurking/occasionally dealing with spam. Thumbs are still pretty buggered so I can't (or shouldn't) type too much.

    I've been lurking, too. I'm in the heart of my busy season with work, so I haven't had as much time for posting as I would like.

  • Sir JerricSat Nov 16, 2019 3:06 pm
    Well, I have been lurking. I neglected to comment on the last post because I haven't taken the time to refresh my knowledge of SA and the Unmade. Too much moving to a new state and new job and the like keeping my mind elsewhere.
  • MacFri Nov 15, 2019 11:38 pm
    Wow. Someone said something.
  • HerowannabeFri Nov 15, 2019 10:49 pm
  • MacWed Oct 02, 2019 8:20 pm
    Okay someone made a point on Reddit I want to explore more. The idea that each of the Unmade are correlated to somethin about the Fused. This ties into the idea that Yelig-Nar only has access to the nine Surges the Fused get.
  • MacWed Oct 02, 2019 8:03 pm
    Hey y'all see the spam in Forum Issues, right?
  • MacWed Sep 25, 2019 4:49 pm
    Hrm, the Plate in the Starfalls vision suffered lasting damage. At least temporarily lasting.
  • ZathWed Sep 25, 2019 4:43 pm
    Oh, that's what you were talking about. Okay, yeah, I agree that Shardblade and Shardplate powers should be explained sequentially rather than jointly. The only functional overlap in their powers I can think of is that both can block a hit from a Shardblade. But even that's not a true overlap, since a Blade will be pretty much unscathed while Plate will crack, leak stormlight, and eventually vanish after repeated blows (though maybe that's only true for "dead" Plate from the Recreance...?).
  • MacWed Sep 25, 2019 7:10 am
    Or at least, "Plate and Blade exist. Here's what Plate can do. Here's what Blades can do." Generally how I see people describe it is, "Here's Plate and Blade, and here's a list of their combined powers." Which... there really aren't any. Like Wax's powers, they do have strong synergy, but they're still distinct.
  • MacTue Sep 24, 2019 2:29 pm
    There are any number of things either alone would excel at that the other doesn't really help to do, as Dalinar explains to Navani while he's in the latrine ditch.
  • MacTue Sep 24, 2019 2:28 pm
    Because their powers have some synergy, but they operate on very different principles, via different mechanics, to do different things. They just both happen to help take down this one specific type of monster.
  • MacTue Sep 24, 2019 2:28 pm
    But I still think an explanation is more confusing if they are grouped than if they are explained in sequence.
  • MacTue Sep 24, 2019 2:27 pm
    Eh. I mean yes, that's a great reason to mention one and then the other.
  • ZathMon Sep 23, 2019 4:08 pm
    Re: tough RPG day: Dang, that's rough. Re: conflating Plate and Blade: I agree that they have vastly different functions, and that "they both came from Radiants" isn't a great reason on its own to group the two. But their functions are so complementary, particularly when it comes to taking down thunderclasts (a big reason why Plate and Blade exist in the first place), that I feel grouping them together is justified, even if I'm ignoring all the other in-world reasons to do so.
  • MacSat Sep 21, 2019 11:27 pm
    Gotta love being told "the group would have fared better if you didn't exist."
  • MacSat Sep 21, 2019 11:27 pm
    Did not have a good RPG day. My character is the social one with some minor skill with the bow. Despite accidentally cheating by rolling superior dice, the first two rounds I failed utterly and missed by about 90 degrees. On the third round I tried to use my social skills to calm the madman down... which ended up succeeding but just giving him renewed reserves of strength to continue to attack us.
  • MacSat Sep 21, 2019 6:46 am
    Fans always describe Plate and Blade together. And I get the urge; it's how people do it in-universe. But surely we know enough to know that they do such different things, via such different principles, that "they both came from Radiants" isn't a good enough reason to conflate them, right?
  • MacTue Sep 17, 2019 1:18 pm
    Ah, nevermind. Found confirmation that it wouldn't work.
  • MacTue Sep 17, 2019 9:49 am
    If so, that would make a Coinshot/Trueself extremely deadly, yes? Store all of one's own Identity and then simply Push on metal in an allomancer's stomach, perforating organs?
  • MacTue Sep 17, 2019 9:49 am
    Hrm... someone on Reddit just proposed the notion that the whole "can't Push on metal in a body" is based on Identity; which is to say, you can Push on metal in your own body.
  • HerowannabeTue Sep 17, 2019 1:47 am
    I haven’t played season 1 (yet) but season 2 was a blast. We did make it through the entire thing over the weekend, with only about an hour to spare before we had to head home :D
  • ZathSun Sep 15, 2019 4:22 pm
    Pandemic Legacy! Fun. My family's still working our way through Season 1.
  • ZathSun Sep 15, 2019 4:22 pm
    *Belatedly commiserates with folks' trials* That's rough.
