I don't suppose you could update the op with the extra rules?  I think it would be easier for newcomers.  (dodge rules etc.)

Good idea, and done.  I did make a small clarification- I had intentionally intended that this wouldn't work for Potency, or Strength if used on a melee attack, but decided that was a bit arbitrary- and I never actually said that.  Instead, I specified that if used for Potency, it only applies to the first spell cast in a turn, and dropped the Strength bit.  As such, Sarzael, said action does indeed work.
So, i can focus to get potency for next turn, right?

Yes, but it will only apply to the first spell you cast that turn, assuming you cast more than one.

Hey toaster, you have me listed as dying twice, one handedly hammer throwing myself into a spike wall and you forgot to add me to the waitlist.

I require that you fix these grievous and in one case entertaining errors.

Clearly running multiple missions at the same time is a terrible idea.  The epic battle to see which team can cock it up worse has escalated again.

And Larry kinda gets blueballed in all this; just left with a raging bone spear and no where to put it.

Consider them rectified.


Spoiler- I am lazy about updating the waitlist.

On an unrelated note, I have finally actually added the Fan Art section to the OP instead of just thinking I did.  Thanks again, Bigf00t!

Bulg Sahe

[Pot:6+1]  Nothing happens.  Hmm.


More tests!

Frustrated at your lack of solid progress, you try some more magic.

[Pot:6+1]  A shimmering image of a dagger.  It spins around on its blade.

[Pot:4+1]  A spear forms before you.  Its shaft is shining steel, with a head formed of brightly shining light.  As it drops to the ground, the head bounces up a lot higher than you would expect.


Use this turn to focus onto obtaining potency.

You channel your inner Saiyan and charge your power level.  You scream a few times for good measure.


Gostophori Smastendip Froitry and try to pickup the whip safely (relatively)

(I'm assuming that the third word is supposed to be Froi)

[Pot:4]  A woodcutter's axe forms and falls to the ground.  It's made entirely out of woven hair, including the blade, and is about as sharp as woven hair.  It's also huge- about seven and a half feet long, with a handle like your leg and a blade as tall as your forearm and longer than that.

Shrugging, you gingerly touch the whip with your finger- and swear as the flesh burns and chars.  Nope, turns out touching magma is a bad idea.


Oh good, I'm a magic midget.

Boster josionp
Sabidetria josionp

You certainly are.  It's a small inconvenience.  Perhaps it'll only last a short time?  You may have to lay low.  Don't try to be a big deal.  Keep your nose low to the ground.  Don't try to reach above your height, you know?

[Pot:3+1]  You get what appears to be a prism-shaped hunk of steel.  It'd be useful to make rainbows if you could shine a light through it.

[Pot:3+1]  Another chunk of steel.  You reach to touch it to see if you notice anything special about it, and your hand goes straight through it.


Pmed Actions!

You head away from the scary looking spikes, north into the large round room.  You head out until you're clear of the overhead ledge.  It's quite a big room, and it looks like you're not alone.  Shrugging, you try your hand at magic.

[Pot:4]  In front of you forms a brown pony.  It appears normal at first glance, except for its lack of mane.  Looking closer, you realize it has rather wrinkled skin.  Patting its flank, you realize two things.  First, its skin is clearly tanned leather.  Second, whatever is under its skin is hard as rock.

It turns and gives you a disinterested look, then bends down and munches on an errant weed.

Walk over to Tiruin. If I still have those arrows with the burning tips, attempt to use one to close her wounds. If not hug her until a combination of force and electricity takes her off to the promised land.

If she is dead by the time I get there:

Because I like living dangerously.
