    Well, that's unfair. [face_laugh]

    How's anyone supposed to concentrate when Gal Gadot herself is within six feet!! ( Not complaining, just feeling sorry for the Count! [face_laugh] )

    Just a clarification, as I realize that I had not set the limits of what is possible and what is not in regards to magic. I will accept the portal and materialization of the item (but I would like to stress that these abilities should be used sparingly) as I don't want things to be unfair towards the characters who don't have such abilities and that they have a toll on the user (fatigue and so on).

    Anyway, great posts everyone! You make it both easy for me to reply and hard as I have to maintain a high standard of quality, so I am very happy!

    Damn magicians and sorcerers, slinging magic around and ignoring the civility of a blade and a firearm.

    Want to share an idea that I have for the game, would like to hear some feedback.

    It involves some posts that won't have a specific character to be tagged. They will be more like newspaper articles, sensationalist ones, involving urban legends, rumours and so on.

    One of them involves a claim that there is a mad scientist who had created an artificial person, accompanied by a sketch that looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    Or a rumour that an alchemist made a creature out of mud and clay

    [​IMG]

    Some of these urban legends might come to play in the game.

    Also if you have an idea for a potential "article" or topic for one please do share it with me via a PM.

    Robots? Thinking, feeling, honest to god robots?

    Oh The Patriarch and Richtoff are intrigued.... :p

    But yeah seems awesome, definitely adds more mystery to the game which I 100% approve of.

    These rumours will have some truths in them, but from a certain point of view ;)

    Also there is this guy :p

    Hey all! I have not been feeling that well these past few days, so I apologize for the delay, nothing serious just overstressed and overtired (hopefully a good weekend's worth of rest should fix that :p ) So I will start rolling the posts from Monday onward.

    That will give time for the ones who had not yet posted (like a certain elven "archeologist" *cough, cough*) to do so.

    Take your time and get rest, no need to overwork yourself on something that is meant to be the very opposite of that concept. ;)

    Sometimes we all need it, without a doubt!

    Amazing posts everyone! So, starting tomorrow there will be another round of updates! Thank you for your patience! I will try to get some goodnight's rest so that I can move things forward.

    Pretty soon there will be a difference between the time of some of the plotlines - they mostly concern the ones that are outside of the city. So an update or two (will see how it goes) then our brave adventurers will reach the Colonies. The way I see it, it will resemble 18th century Boston.

    Also there will be a small time jump for the HIMAS Aquila.

    I will have to make a decision about the stories set in Basileus, as some are pretty independent from the others. For now.

    And to say again: if you have an urban myth, or some pulp fiction reference, or some interesting side-story that can help to flesh out the world more is welcome to be sent via a PM to see how it can be included.

    Once again, great job everyone!

    No, no you don't need to know who Lady Al’meera is. She isn't important and Morrigan has no idea what she is talking about....
