    We had warstriders since the Paladin in V2, and we have seen particularly gargantuan grimm since V4 with the sea dragon thingie. The big one is a surprise but not a bizarre one.

  • 13 dots. You need resources 4 to do most of that stuff.
    You don't usually pay xp for those merits over the course of the game, but damn if you don't need a ton of them....

    Oh, that will be a big deal for sure. Wasn't it papa schnee that ran along with the cultural cues of atlas and basically made gulags? It shouldn't change much in the sense that weiss already acknowledges what's going on is not fine, and it won't change much of her previous prejudices because, well, one does not forgive "This people literally systematically killed most of my family and friends" just because one saw something that kinda explains it in a vengeful sense. But it will be a gross reminder of just how complicated the whole ordeal is.

  • And warstriders are Guymelef size instead of EVA-01 size too. So they tie pretty well....

    Yeah, she's free to move when she does those.
    Might be any of those.

    Ruby's, you mean? She does some dead runs with it.
    Might be a range? The furthest we've seen was in the food fight iirc, but there was a hell lot of prep. Was there another example in the train? Not sure.
    Might be about footing? Have we seen her do many of those moves without a stepping stone?
    It might be temporal as well, I haven't ever measured that anywhere decently tho.

    Any fandom big enough necessarily goes toxic in the sense that you will find a village idiot or five that make a bitchfest that annoys the hell out of everyone. A large sampling alone is easily responsible for most such people gaining some visibility at some point. The apparent impersonality of the internet also helps shut down some restraints in behavior. It's the magic of the web....

    A king is still fundamentally human. Any differences he or she has to other humans are accounted in externalities and in human variance.Sure. This is a perspective worth holding, and the only way to remain moral if that moral code is to be isonomic. Yet, this is a complication that will arise eventually. Whatever other life forms that qualify as "sentient" (which is in itself a lurid question) will most likely be different enough that our current understanding of it breaks, especially if they are not derivative of our own. It's really hard to answer what is sentient without some tautologies,...

    I totally agree they are petty tyrants. By our standards. Condemning them for not holding up to that is foolish. Instead, condemn them for the dangerous monsters that they are ...

    Do note that you are judging them by the same criteria you would judge a human.

    They clearly do not. Whatever standards they hold between themselves is not the same that they do for humans.

    Which makes sense. They are not humans. They created the humans, apparently rather easily too. They literally operate on a different scale. It would be bizarre if they didn't judge by different values.
    Their standards for humans is more like ours are for the dogs we bred over the milennia.


    Primordials, anyone?...

    Pyrrha has been invoked what, twice since her death? Well, twice it struck true. Anyway.

    So semblances can be stolen, albeit it's specific enough it looks like a big secret. Makes sense, considering we have already seen souls being toyed around.

  • The big point against verbena is who and how they bonded with the divine. You can still feel the animism off their magics, but the very specific deal with the devil feels very off.
    Well, there's a reason hermetics and verbena are so close that the friction's palpable....

  • Dude, he literally mentioned the show's specific group right after that phrase. Chill. Second hand offendedness is not really conducive to getting this thread anywhere. It makes agreeing with your comment on how the story's group is not representative of anything else unnecessarily hard....

  • I apologize for the tone. It wasn't meant to be derisive.

    I'd ask that, since you pulled the authority card, to hear the full lecture, since the affirmation does seem to go against research I have studied.

  • You really went out of your way to dismiss what I said by conflating it with what I DIDN'T say.

    Damn, man. That takes effort. Kudos to you.
