  1. Story: Wed Nov 22 2017

    One possibility: Ellen is magically created. It gives her an advantage with energy buildups; it might also give her an edge when it comes to magic resistance. What Mr. Verres says in the second panel on this page seems to support that.

    Honestly? I think Tedd would be more than a little angry, too. Pandora may find herself called to account for her actions by her great-godson/daughter before this is over.
  3. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Nonetheless, it is a good thing that we've had you around for another year, for which I am duly grateful. If it makes you feel better, I turn 52 in a few months. (My wife turned 46 earlier this year. For various personal reasons this depressed her. It cheered her somewhat when I told her that she would be the envy of half the States for going from 45 to 46 before the rest of them did.)

    Big talk from the Pharaoh who ruled an entire kingdom based on his subjects' belief that he was a living god.
  5. Story: Wed Nov 22 2017

    It seems that Ellen is somehow more aware of what is going on than Sirleck and Magus think. Her pulse rate started to quicken as Magus related the plan Pandora had compelled him to follow. I wonder if this is leading up to a "You wouldn't want me to get angry" moment. These have been known to snap or at least temporarily suspend mental control. I am in agreement with this; it seems logical to me.

    Huh. I and my friends did not use that interpretation. Partly it was because of the dramatically increasing amount of time it took to memorise spells, I think. If one of our level 12 wizards had expended all their spells it took them eighteen hours of effort to memorise them all anew. According to the rules, you could only spend eight hours a day on memorising spells before you tired too much to maintain the effort. Thus, at that point, it took us three days to go from empty to full. Losing everything overnight would have made that impossible, obviously. It got worse at higher levels. I can not remember precisely how long it took him but there was this 30th level NPC wizard in the campaign. We worked out that if he fired off everything he had, it would take him around half a month to recover everything he had spent.

    I have played tabletop RPGs for years. Unfortunately, I just did not have any ideas for your thread. I am sorry.

    I think it would be better if you knew it off the cat, anyway.

    I can't even remember seeing that premise done decently. It is too often done for laughs in situations that are not really funny.
  10. Story, Friday November 17, 2017

    I am more interested in what happens if he gets hit by gender flipping magic. Will he turn into Madamleck?
  11. Story, Wednesday November 15, 2017

    Ah, my apologies. I was clearly not paying proper attention.
  12. Story, Friday November 17, 2017

    You can thank the Pharaoh for those. He needed to find something to do for some of his relatives and thought of the combination tomb-and-toll booth. All they have to do to go to work now is to open the sarcophagus and stagger to the window of the booth and collect taxes just like in the old days.
  13. Things You Find Amusing

    I knew it. The whole mess is a shell game.
  14. Story, Friday November 17, 2017

    Sounds reasonable to me. 'Friends and family', to me, includes the families of friends. Welcome back after long absence, Chronos. Just to set matters straight, Chronos was a forumgoer before I was.
  15. Things you have no idea how to feel about

    In other words, she is being a cat.
