I figured I needed to light a fire under bubbles' ass. he he he. As for major, I was going off of the effects that the game usually did. When an enemy died in that game they kinda flash disintegrated. Considering the effects of disintegration are not different from death in this system (as they are in DnD), I figured it would make for good effect. Also I was improvising since you didn't specify how it did damage (visually not game mechanics).

Secondly, Pat. I see no reason why your nullify shouldn't suppress magic items. Although it depends on the item's properties, so don't be surprised if it doesn't always work. I would review in my head how the item's magic/effects work and decide weather or not your ability would be able to suppress it. Also a few things to keep in mind, I think your effect reduces their ranks, but not of all their abilities. The way I am understanding the nullify power is that you have the ability to nullify all abilities, however one use does not effect across the board. I think it would nullify effectively 2 ranks of abilities. This does not mean that A) you couldn't keep poking them to add more nullification, or B) you couldn't "aim" your nullification against certain abilities they have (like if you poked kidar saying to nullify his fire ability rather than finding out he has some other ability that instead got nullified). Also keep in mind you can do multiple actions in a round by splitting your turn. I.E. try to nullify AND a STR check.

Finally, holy crap Malcolm back. He's the new Colfax! Err... so i was NPCing you, and I had you turn into the sniper from TF2. If you would like to change what you went to that's perfectly fine...however I would like to know what you are turning in to. I assume by the description in your post you are keeping the form though, correct? Also, if you are going to do multiple shots, this would be considered splitting your turn. Thus falling under the whole dice rolling method for splitting turns. (I.E. 2 shots = first roll made at 3 dice, second roll at 2 dice.)

Actually, when I was typing it was before you posted my change, and I didn't really catch that in your post. I actually turned into Max Payne, from the game of the same name. (Incidentally, found out the movie version of same comes out this friday. If it does justice to the game should be freaking bad ass.) As for the multiple shots when I initially posted I forgot this system works on number of successes. Would the autofire trait do something with only one shot fired? (Its originally designed for d20 system so not sure what that might affect.) Either way I'm gonna stick with a single shot this round, although for description purposes I'm gonna refer to it as a burst.

If you'd rather I stay TF2 sniper I'll have to mess with my post, but thats fine.

Max Payne works. Not too familiar with that game but its fine. Technically since you can change forms we shall just say last round you were the sniper, and now you are payne. Also feel free to add any flavor text to whatever posts you make (I.E. burst instead of a single shot, disintegration, etc). I'll look up the autofire thingy and make a call on it when its not 2 am for me.

What are you talking about its only 1 am there, its 2 am here.

Also, I have to say, I'm really much more excited now that we're in combat. I thought forum based combat would be really slow and boring but since we have no idea what is going on, its pretty awesome.

Hmmm, okay this doesn't exactly make sense so I should probably refrain from posting at 2am in the future.

The nice thing about working on a ship is we can ignore time zone changes and crap like that. I don't even know what time zone we are on/in or whatever, ship's time its 2 am though.

Your post doesnt actually make sense... or maybe thats cause im reading it late. If you are confused about how the combat is working let me know. Otherwise, glad you are enjoying it. So far the posting for combat has happened fairly fast (except my 2 weeks of apt hunting). Hopefully we can keep that up.

Ah cool, had no idea about the ship time thing. Its like the exact opposite of railroad time (where time zones originated).

Now I have this really cool idea of the shipping industry having this conspiracy against the railroads to bring down time zones or something in an awesome steampunk setting.

As for the post I was really tired so maybe I had no idea what I was talking about when I said it didn't make sense. I've got the combat down though so don't worry about that.

Calliope is just doing the same thing this round actually. We never really discussed whether she has to focus to maintain her draining abilities, or even if she knows whether or not they work. Either way, repeat and if you need more dice rolls...9 and 7

Sorry for the delay all. Somehow i managed to stop checking the site, and of course didnt notice. I also didnt notice that thanksgiving was this week so that says a bit for my perception eh?

I really really apologize for the lack of posting. I will try and be much better about that in the future. Thanks for kindly reminding me to post, and hopefully you all still are here.

I HAVE RETURNED!!!

So sorry about all this. Getting back on land has, well, engulfed me in wow. Oops. I shall endevour to post more often. Maybe its just battles moving too slow. If we ever get out of this dont be surprised if we dont have much combat in the future. No offense, but i think that does have some issues.

Well, with any play by post campaign combat is often very long. So unless a battle is important to the story I like to cut it out. But then again it is sometimes necessary to break up the game.
