    No human sacrifice, and no building temples to wild gods. Kasai isn't a great immaculate, but he has *some* standards.

    #2. Send a priest to cleanse the place. Probably should do that for the benefit of hunters and foragers anyhow.

    "We're not done. We're not leavin' until this whole tree is ash." She fiddled with the revolving cylinder on Judgement. It took a second, but she figured out how to pop open the catch and see the chambers inside. There were five; one had still had some dust in it, and the rest were empty. She flicked her wrist to snap the cylinder back into place, then checked the Absolution. Same story - one shot left. Ash tried to reckon how much dust she had on her and how much would load into each chamber.

    "How are we going to do that?" asked Serge, interrupting her thoughts....

    I'm 20-30 hours in to Mass Effect Andromeda. I think it's the worst Mass Effect game I've played, but it's still a very solid sci-fi shooter RPG. To unpack that a little - I take issue with the writing, the crafting system, and the amount of time-wasting filler in Andromeda. On the other hand, I think Andromeda has the most interesting environments of any Mass Effect game to date, both in aesthetics and gameplay design. Also, I like Andromeda's range of weapons and the open character-development system, which together allow for a much wider range of character builds than were possible in other...

    Depends what kind of god the mortal is trying to be.

    If the idea is to dress up in a fancy costume and claim to be divine, socialize, performance, and presence are all important.

    If you'd rather try to overawe people with magical (but not divine) wonders, then Occult and Lore are your go-to skills.

    Or, maybe you want to be the man behind the curtain for Oz, the Great and Powerful. In that case, larceny and craft will be the foundation of your impersonation.

    Really, you could use almost anything. You probably want one or two socially-focused abilities...

    My first pick is still Craft (With a Box of Scraps!). For my second, I vote for Survival - Dealing with Animals. Between the raptor cat, the raiton, and the river dragon, it seems Tavi has spent almost as much time dealing with Nexus' fauna as she has with its people.

    As for what to do today - probably should track down Eel and see if he was serious about that apprenticeship. If we let that sit for too long, Eel will think Tavi isn't serious, and that career path will be closed off.

    Ash stood up and stamped on the edge of the case. The two flamepieces popped free and up into Ash's waiting hands. She squeezed their grips, relaxed, then twirled them around her fingers. They felt right in a way that no weapon had before. Ash turned, thumbed the hammers, pointed both barrels at the tree, and pulled the triggers.

    Two waves of fire - one gold, and one cobalt - washed over the tree. At once began to smolder, but it did not quite catch alight. The tree shook. A confusing smell that mixed cooking meat with burning paper filled air. Ash found herself distracted by the...

    1100 vs 900 isn't great odds, especially if the bandits occupy a fortified position and the Jianghu levy does not. But we might be able to get reinforcements from the hill tribes, and anyway we're not really going there to siege. We're going there to parley with a big stick. I say we set off as soon as possible....

    Ash started to blink, then she laughed. Long, loud peals of hysterical hilarity were swept away on the wind as Ash was carried onwards and upwards. "Look up, Seres! It's the stuff of legends!" she managed to say.

    Seres, wild-eyed and breathing fast, looked up. "Gods above, what is that!?" she yelled to the sky.

    "Hell if I know!" Ash yelled back, then laughed again.

    There was a loud whistle, and then a louder booming noise below them - explosive, with lingering sounds of crackling flame. The tree jerked and halted its upward movement....

    Speaking as someone who has been looking forward to Fallout 4 VR since 2015... I disagree.

    I own an HTC Vive, and it's been a lot of fun. But currently the platform suffers from a lack of dedicated AAA titles - things to really wow people. First-person adventures, pedestal-wave shooters, and the occasional strategy game only take you so far. A well-known open world RPG by a well-known developer is just the thing to bring VR into the mainstream... I hope.

    It's reassuring to know that the project is real and that it will be released this year....

    1. Accept Masanori's service and send him off.

    ...I'm a little surprised that we have to go through the rigmarole of a "siege" to recruit him after that. Kasai's offer is pretty good, considering - does Masanori believe that a majority of his men won't go for it?

    Also, we should spend more time gathering intelligence before we do something like this again. 900 is not what I'd call "a few."

    Let Moth do it. Like Ferryman said, this won't be the last time we have an awkward moment, and Moth is clever enough to get suspicious. Also, I don't know how Tavi is supposed to bandage her own back. If she asks why, just tell her, in so many words, "The only thing worse than being a boy alone on the streets is being a girl alone on the streets."

    Craft Specialty : Kitbashing from junk. We've done that a lot.

    Try freeing the raiton. I figure it's either that or leave the river-dragon bits to be eaten while Tavi makes her escape - I don't relish trying to flee if the raitons decide to give chase and harry her as she climbs down....
