HMR stands for Hazardous Materials Requisition, not Horrible Massive Ruination, though I can understand how one could get confused.

I do not put characters removed because the player couldn't play at that time, but I guess that I could do a "banished" list, where your character could appear.

Wait, by deathlist you mean the post whose headline is "the fallen" where I write all the characters who have been killed, right?

Anyway, editing your character in the waitlist...

Turn 046

Hmm, it seems that you are having a lot of time to do science. It would be a bit unfortunate if something happened to interrupt you, don't you think so? Are you paranoid yet? No? Well, maybe I should try harder next time.

SCIENCE WILL HAPPEN UNTIL I SAY IT STOPS

You stubbornly keep doing science. Because there aren't many things to do, really.

[Pot:5+1=6]
You can feel a disturbance in the nothingness behind you.

[Pot:5+1=6]
Your spear glows for a brief moment.

[Pot:5+1=6]
Now the nothingness is disturbed in front of you.

[Pot:5+1=6]
The thought of pits raging with fire invades your mind. From its depths, many shadows can be seen coming up, via a spiral staircase, made from black metal, almost as dark as darkness itself. The army marches, and you can clearly seem them better: demons, from all the sizes. Horns and claws are abudant in their anatomy, but there is also some shadowy figures that do not fit totally into that army. Enclosed in dark clothes inscribed with red runes, the thread that made them likely stained with the blood of innocents, are moving along them. They seem to be giving orders, like if they had some position of importance. They may be fallen heroes and wizards, their silhouettes indistinguishable from the rest of the demons due to the multiple horns that decorate their clothes, but their black colours allow the naked human eyes to distinguish them from the rest of the infernal offspring.
The vision fades away, and you begin to wonder about what have you just seen.

[Pot:1+1=2]
You got too distracted to notice what exactly happened.

A hole opens in the floor, and, suddenly, the Dragon Knight is sucked in. You can't do anything to help him, as the floor closed again with unbelievable haste. The sounds of creams and broken bones filled the room for a brief time. And then, you realize that you may not see him again.

Say a PHRASE.

[Pot:5+1=6]
A thick golden line appears, drawing a big naginata. With a flash of light, it materializes into solid diamond. How...original? You grab it, and you notice that it is heavier than what you would have thought.

You notice that there is a little crank near the handle. Moving it seems to pull or release little diamond mechanisms that allow you to adjust the angle of the blade. Not really useful, but it is cool.

-Steampunk diamond naginata:
[Has an edge]
[Heavy]

You notice that that guy with the diamond nunchucks falls to a hole in the floor that opened unexpectedly just below him, which then closed itself trapping him. The amount of screams followed by the crunchy sounds of broken bones just make you think about something: "Sucks to be him, I guess"

-Snip-
More science! And hope that the floor loves you! Do you love me floor? Because I love you! Please don't crush me.

[Pot:1+1=2]
A golden line appears and... Well you fail. That's it.

Phrases of words.

Huh, now let's try many words together!

[Pot:3+1=4]
A golden line appears and draws a pickaxe, it appears to be normal.

[Pot:4+1=5]
A golden line appears and draws a little seal. With a flash of light, it becomes solid...cardboard? Okay, that's not as cute as you thought that it would be.

I'll figure out what that damned word means!

[Pot:6-1=5]
Goddamit, you made the GM waste three valuable seconds to look at the word that you were trying to say. He sincerely hopes you die a horrible death. [/joke]

The piece of wall you have been staring begins to glow for a moment, but said glows fades away some moments after, like if it had nothing to do there and just got bored.

Let the phrasing....BEGIN!
Ahhhhh that guy got swallowed by the floor, I don't wanna die, I need to know more science ahhhhhhhhhhh.

[Pot:5]
A golden line appears and draws a human head. An androgynous head, but a head nevertheless.

[Pot:2]
Nothing happens.

[Pot:5]
Now an androgynous torso is drawn. No sexy things for you.

[Pot:1]
[Will:4]
Your left foot suddenly flashes. it startles you, so you jump back, falling on your buttocks. Observing your foot, you can notice two things: the first one, is that you don't feel it. The second one, is that it is now something that emits light and a little bit of heat, but you can't discern its boundaries. You ponder if it would be wise to actually stand up and use it to walk. It seems to not have any kind of weight now.  Hmm.

Left foot is inert light:
-1 to acrobatics actions and dodging

Mako's third sibling appears in the center of the Grand Room. Igor the Invincible does so in the Arcane Room.

Because trying to stuff Fate/Whatever's engrish and the title of a 17th century book on statecraft into Pokemon syntax tends to make the content incomprehensible.

Oh goddamn it, that was a four word sentence of waste!

Alas poor Horatio.
