    She is anti-technology because anti-technology is a subset of being anti-social. She opposes the societal foundations that would make technology possible. Worse even, she makes it harder for societies around hers to maintain those societal foundations by conducting banditry against them. Her philosophy is having a very real negative immediate effect on the well being of many towns, even at this scale. She is running a parasite-society, with an ideology that will make it difficult to impossible to perform the bandit equivalent of sustainable farming.

    Her apparent stated position is that she doesn't believe in carrying those members of society who can't fend for themselves. That directly opposes the possibility that someone will be able to dedicate their live to study and experimentation enough to develop advanced technology. Study and research take time, a lot of it, during which these people will need to be fed and supported by other members of the group.

    She doesn't have to be anti-technology. She may love the power that technology brings. But no tribe run by her based on the principles of 'no hand outs' is going to be developing...

    Exactly. The specific timeline wasn't revealed, but for all we know Weiss left for Atlas before Yang even got to a hospital after what happened, and she might not have heard a peep since (it didn't seem like she was talking much to Ironwood even). Just finally seeing that Yang isn't dead or permanently crippled would have been a relief, let alone the help her sudden arrival represented.

    She didn't lift a finger to help stop the train at the end of season 2, though. She may not be as insane as Adam or Torchwick, but she clearly doesn't care enough to stop them either....

    On the matter of Penny's apparent death not being dealt with in the show as much as it maybe should have: Only two of the characters would likely be truly deeply affected. Ruby is the only one we see treating Penny as a friend, everyone else is as best mildly annoyed by her. But by the time Ruby gets the breather to work through that, she's lost another friend (whom more of her remaining friends were close to), possibly lost her sister to depression, had the weight of the world dumped on her, had to watch the city she lived in die, had two more friends bugger off without goodbye and needs to worry...

    They also appear to be wielding similar weapons (Katanas in sheaths that seem to be guns), fight similarly (from what little has been shown) and both wear red/black with white masks.

    What that means? I don't know. A Hyde-style dual personality? She trained him? Adam is Yang's brother? Coincidence? We might know more by the end of the season, but right now that aren't a lot of clues.

    There is nothing to indicate he can make more Pennys. That he was shown could simply be:
    -To show that even her creator cared about her and was angry at her death.
    -To show that her creator is not happy and might become a minor villain later out of spite
    -To show that her creator is vowing to make the next model tougher but less compassionate
    -A red herring. (I don't believe this one either, but it is possible, in particular since scripting had to go to new writers, unfortunately.)

    Penny 2.0 is possible, but by no means guaranteed....

  • Do the rumors have to be true? (Not all of the following are)

    Character: Lillian Iceheart - Whitewall Infantry Officer/Warstrider Pilot/Death-metal band lead guitarist/Secret Agent/Treasure Hunter/Sorceress (Modern Game)

    Common Rumors (Easy): She's inappropriately favoured by the Commander of the Whitewall defence forces (there is a betting pool as to whether she's his secret daughter or lover); she's about to leave her death-metal band to either quite music or go solo; she's crazy fond of orichalcum (not uncommon in Whitewall in this setting)

    Common Rumors...

  • Most recent game:

    GM: You cut down the tree with the demon monkeys in it, and it falls. Everyone roll Dex+Dodge to jump out of the way. Stunts?
    Player 1: My wings are still up, so I Palpatine-spin out of the way!
    Player 2: Palpatine spin?
    Player 1: Yeah, abyssal, dark cloak, glowing sword, sorcerer. I Palpatine spin.
    Player 2: So...It's tree-son, then?
