I'm the sort of crazy nut that believes that humans have innatee psionic abilities that can be trained, so are super minor abilities such as percognitive hunches allowed? Or is that too new age?Kughii: a char showing rhe difference between elements in game and the real stuff would be helpful. I use a lot of earth physics in my attacks but apparently that's godmodding

Okay. Okay. Once I get my blog, I promise to write out my theories on every element, organic physics, and of course anatomy.

I'm using Lev's random essay thingie on MU species biology as a base for my characters.It's the one he made for Waves of the South.

Pretty much this. The boss man himself has said to consider anatomy almost identical to our own, because it makes it much easier to tell what attack should do what damage.Whatever degree of humanization you prefer, the boss says to consider anatomy nearly the same as ours. Let me see if I can find that quote...

Aha! Found it:

On the anatomy questions: Yes, treat your anatomies like those of a human. Even if the bones are made of protosteel and the beings in this universe thusly heavier, bear in mind that everyone and everything else is heavier and stronger, too - your metal bones will break, your metal skin slice, and your oily blood run as easily as with a human person, because your opponent is giving the additionally required strength to damage the stronger materials.

But that's if you need a logical explanation for the anatomical stuff. Just take it that you have the same physical limitations as a human, okay? It's easier for you (a human) to realistically RP, and it makes fights more fair - there's no relative perceptions of strength. Plus, being hurt (and hurting people) is more fun than being impervious and/or never scoring hits.

Basically, no matter what degree of humanization you conform to, this is how the anatomy of characters works. They have bones, whether you consider them metal or not, they have blood, whether you consider it more like oil or not, and that's just how it works.

For my case in these arguments, I usually screw up and get scutinized :P.And I actually prefer for the pala-koro fight to be delayed just a bit longer.

I was actually going to suggest this. It's rather irritating to have over a dozen players held up because one person is inactive (nothing against the Mask; it happens sometimes). Let's just get started.

Fourthed.Nuju said to do it like, 2.5 weeks ago. Longest time Nuju said something that nobody did.So far, I've been in 3 holidays and 1 supra-tiring expedition trip, and I was thinking it would be in those time's.If The Mask can't do it, we can't really let 1 person cause something to get delayed for something as big as this. Nothing against the Mask, but it's time we get a move on.

There are rules. For instance, you need the original player's permission.Not to mention, the vampire thing happened as a side effect if one of Til's plotlines. You couldn't make one for story reasons.

It's simple really. There's a nasty process of Tillian biting you, then you biting him back, and a couple of demonic chants as well, but yeah. I don't see why not to making this whole game a total twilight fandom. While we're at it I'll just start writing Riaril with sparkles.

People don't need to be a vampire to act like a vampire or have vampiric symptons.For example, whenever I accidentally cut myself, I just suck the blood because I'm too lazy to grab a tissue.

So, first we make a discussion about Psionics stuff when psionics has been outlawed as an element...I don't doubt that if you wrote up a huge thesis essay explaining in exquisite detail just why you should get to use that element Nuju would read more than the "I want to have psionics as an element" part of the PM, but even then, I doubt he would allow it.And finally, as Tyler said, Tillian is not a Vampire. It was a long time ago in Le-Wahi, Tillian had a vial full of golden liquid, vial broke, liquid seeped into him through his skin, boom, genetic mutations lead to him being what he was not too long ago.And then, just a bit after that, boom, suddenly, he has the Hamartia in his head after an odd meeting at the temple in Kumu with the Mark Bearers, and now the Hamartia's going to go about and use that mutation Tillian has now to rid the island of evil.

So, could there be a last-minute join-in for the ILF? Because one of my characters wants to join.

If he's just walking towards Pala-koro in the dark (I think I read that in the topic. Excuse me if that was someone else and I am remembering badly), they might let him in. The problem is that he's just as likely to run into the Makuta Followers who are all hiding in the bushes near the village and get munched by them. If any of them see your guy, they won't just sit there while the ILF gets reinforcements.
