  • I don't think Lazarus is the Biblical Lazarus, but if he were well, if any of the Antediluvians were going to find the guy who died and was resurrected and turn him into a vampire, I think Cappadocius would be the first in line.

    The Noble Genie patron did have two abilities that made me say, "Whoa!" The first was the "tether" ability which lets you pick a person and then (among other things) let you cast spells as if you were standing where they were standing. So you could use Tether on your Barbarian friend and then after he charges into melee, start firing off touch spells using him as the spell originator and targeting everyone next to him while you're safe in the back. You could also use it for healing spells. Seems like that could possibly be a useful option for a single "dip" level...

    In the old extended universe, he would die eventually. But we're talking many hours, possibly even days depending on the environment and what he's doing and of course since he's Darth Freaking Vader he'd probably have a fair amount of plot immunity.

    I'm hoping they start building on what they have. Maybe have Rey open a Jedi academy or something. Though I've also heard a lot of talk that Disney is considering reaching back into the Old Republic era and using some of that content for movies or another television show....

    Abyssals were definitely the funkiest with their bodies. Heck, in previous editions they could be rotting zombies or even virtually skeletons and still be "alive" and Abyssal Exalted.

    I did chuckle about that when I left the theater, how the movie spent all this time focused on the characters working to save the poor, helpless abused animal while leaving the poor, helpless, abused child slaves behind to get punished for the animals getting stolen....

    Personally that was the most unsatisfying scene in the movie for me and the moment I disliked the most. I would have much preferred it if he had actually gone there and died in person. Instead the whole thing just felt really weird.

    They had shown Luke's X-wing earlier so when Luke shows up I assumed it was him in person. Then Kylo appears to cut down Luke. Oh no, Luke's dead! But then it turns out Luke is basically a Force projection and they show him back on the other planet. Oh, I guess Luke didn't die. Alright, where is this going? And then Luke proceeded to die a few moments...

    Not mad or anything but if you could, would you mind throwing some spoilers in your post? There might be some people who end up seeing a few of the bigger plot points for Rise of Skywalker spoiled when they read your post and this is the general "movies" thread.

    Anyway, there were a lot of things in the Last Jedi that I didn't care for, but this was one thing that had a solid foundation in the prequel movies and from a certain perspective makes complete sense.

    One of the big ideas in the prequel trilogy is the idea that the Jedi teachings are both right and...

  • I ran an extensive Dragon Blooded game that took about 3 years to finish and had numerous timeskips and arcs. It started with the characters in Secondary School, and then involved a 20 year time skip, an 80 year timeskip and finally a 150 year timeskip ("We've got to get the gang back together to handle this big threat...")

    The first thing I did for the Secondary School game was come up with a large cast of NPCs. One of the issues is that with a school setting you are going to have a lot of characters (all of the various classmates), and the players are basically stuck in...

    Just as a side note, Vader is how the Dutch word for Father is spelled (and very similar to how the German word for Father is pronounced). Meanwhile Lucas has said that Darth was a variation on the word Dark, so that Darth Vader is functionally Dark Father. At least that's what Lucas claimed was the origin for the name Darth Vader when asked. So I have to imagine that Lucas had that aspect of Luke's parentage planned out from the get go, or at least by the time he settled on Darth Vader's name....

  • Yeah, I think it could happen instantly, though if I were running this as a campaign I'd have it be a sort of slow, creeping corruption as the players (Technocratic agents taking part in this invasion of hell) slowly found all of their allies becoming more and more corrupt and monstrous. I think that would make for a more interesting game scenario. Suddenly I'm remembering Warhammer 40k and how some of the Legions fell to Chaos and became corrupted and twisted. I imagine something similar happening if the Technocracy tried to launch a mass invasion of Malfeas (or the 1000 Hells or somewhere s...

  • The Technocracy could certain invade Malfeas and do some damage, but I suspect the fight would be fairly drawn out. Rather than just a quick "one and done" fight it would end up as something longer, as the Technocracy had to take one section of the Realm, occupy it and then try to take the next. And I can't help but imagine that, as the Technocracy's soldiers stayed there in the Wyrm's presence for an extended period of time many of them would end up becoming corrupted by the Wyrm's influence....

    If Trump's goal is to convince me to stop eating pork and, indeed meat in general and become a vegetarian, he's doing a bang up job of it.
