    I think the haircut is more a matter of practicality in combat. Unless it's up in a bun and under some sort of helmet, it becomes a handhold for someone looking to slow him down. Ironically his skintight superhero form is actually more practical, if he can tone down the breast size down to stop inertia from impeding combat - there's a reason why female fighters sometimes bind their chests, and it's not just to look like men.

    I mean, not necessarily. Thoth could be considered an "accountant", along with any being or individual whose job it is to keep an account of all that transpires throughout the cosmos. Heka could be called a librarian. And Hermes could be called a "travel agent", along with any being or individual whose job it is to facilitate travel around and across both sides of the world, up and down Ygdrassil.

    I wonder why Ashley's first racoon was to toss a potential weapon of magic physically, instead of trying to use it. Has she seen Harry Potter?

    So... is the Vatican informed yet? The Imperial Omyouji? The PRC and ROC? The Masons, the Golden Dawn, the Salem Coven, the Templar Order, every Rosicrucian and Pythagorian? Because for all we know, every Shabti in Egypt is about to come to life, along with the Teracotta Army, and that's not counting the "pagan artifacts" in the Vatican Archives and the Holy Relics, the obsidian daggers of Teotihuacan, the bloodied altars of Peru, the temples of Greece and Rome, every totem on every reservation in America... we'll be lucky if there isn't a delayed reaction to the Ghost Dance or a thousand and one curses flying out of the Tomb of Tutankhamun.

    Avada Kedavra. Exterminatus. Empathetic voodoo doll. Nuclear detonation with memory wipe. Tesla death ray. Supersonic sniper round. Elephant tranquilizer. Citywide sleep spell and a bullet to the head. Dimensional cage. Holding a few orphans hostage in a teleportation-proof sealed bunker with a remote trigger release of chlorine gas. There are many ways to take down someone without x-ray vision, susceptible to sleep spells and emotional manipulation. You're not thinking ruthlessly enough. This is the DGB. A government organization that deals with shapeshifting supernatural heavy-hitters on a daily basis, with contingency plans to kill minor gods. If the CIA can murder or kidnap and torture thousands of people in over 500 black budget black sites around the world, in some of the most densely populated areas in some cases, if they can manufacture an entire drug trade and keep an entire race of people oppressed, if they can overthrow countless governments and assassinate high profile political leaders, the DGB should have no problem neutralizing Grace. Permanently.

    Arthur Arthur is nothing if not pragmatic. For all that he seemed like a bad guy now and then, his ultimate goal has always been the preservation of the human race as it stands, through whatever means he found necessary. Plus, giving Tedd a laboratory run and funded by the DGB means that HE can personally supervise the research, giving him authority over her and putting him in a position to threaten or seize her research if he felt it necessary.

    More like "mostly cloudy with a chance of screaming many-limbed chaos spawns and impossible violations of physics and biology. Bring a few holy or blessed relics to mercy-kill the suffering and purge heresy." Gonna need a bigger blessed chainsword...
  8. Story Friday February 23, 2018

    "Become random... massive storms of chaos magic... people would stop using magic" *looks over at Warhammer rulebooks* I think the WoM massively underestimates the natural, possibly insane curiosity of mortals. Actually, Dies the Fire isn't really about magic replacing technology. It's about the gods making most tech involving steam, explosions and electricity stop working, which allows things like the Difference Engine, primitive steam engines in Iowa and clockwork horse drawn locomotives, along with hydrogen blimps in Idaho. Actual magic barely figures at all, other than premonitions and very vague stuff that could mostly be explained by hypnotic suggestion or very strong drugs, and the major stuff is less magic and more miracle, heavily involving invocations of deities such as Morrigu or Odhinn or Mary Pierced With Many Sorrows. A world where magic completely replaces technology would probably be Eberron. A world where most technology doesn't work but traditional fantasy magic works for very specific people would be the Council Wars series by John Ringo, although he cheats a bit by having said "magic" be sufficiently advanced technology.

    So maybe a better question is, are we headed for My Little Pony, Dragonball, or Nanoha.
  10. Story: Wed Feb 21, 2018

    So are we headed for Dresden Files, Shadowrun, or Harry Potter with this?
  11. Story: Wed Feb 21, 2018

    Someone call the Vatican, the Imperial Omyouji, the Van Helsing family, all the shamans, the Freemasons, the priests of all major religons, and reconvene the Round Table. And prepare to reopen the crypt of Merlin. We MIGHT have an emergency here.

    Why does a megalomaniaclike Voltaire settle for being a demigod when he could be a god, with enough changes? Or is he just being realistic with his goals at the moment?
  13. Story, Wednesday February 7, 2018

    So if Magic decides to change anyways, is there a point at which Magic starts saying "maybe this wasn't such a good idea"? Maybe after Voltaire and a newly-created Lord Tedd outright force Magic's secrecy to be completely and utterly impossible short of an extinction event not seen since the end of the dinosaurs? Or will it take humanity or a human ascending beyond the levels of gods, with the power to bend worlds to his will, putting his gauntleted hand around Magic's neck and demanding submission?
  14. Story, Monday February 5, 2018

    Magic as dynastic makes Lord Tedd's lordship make that much more sense. He's part of a Noble and Most Ancient House, a rarity among rarities, and one of the Thousand, the only ones who can understand the innermost secrets of Magic.
  15. Story, Friday February 2, 2018

    You still have the other side of the world, though, which is full of magic. Would Magic consider the extinction of this side of the world any great loss, so long as the other side remains?
