Crystallite created it as an additional 'skill' for the Warehouse campaign, which Elacular and myself are participating in.
Its bonus is half the combination of your Arcana and your Perception.
ex. Cloud Hopper has Arcana 10 and Perception 7. Combined, that's 17. Halved that makes it 8.5, which I round up to 9 because most numbers get rounded up in the system.

Can anyone think of any reason why Paladin might off been so quiet until now? Because honestly. Having his sarcastic clapping ignored, and having been denied the ability to reply before the RP moved on, crushed my motivation to post in the RP.

Paladin is a loud, bold and emotional pony. Yet currently, it feels like nopony even knew he was on the wagon!

Overslept? I think that's what Cardbo's character was trying to set up for you since you hadn't made any actions recently. Also sorta starts tying the party together.

I made a mistake. That's my fault and I'm sorry. But we would all be glad to have that change, but you have to have him do things. If you don't want to post in the RP anymore, than I'd rather have you just leave than wait every time for you to post before deciding to move on at the risk of you exploding on me again. And beyond that, he is your character. It's up to you to understand why things happen to him. But if you really need a reason, it's simple: All the PCs that are campers are first time students and are experiencing an entirely new, scary, confusing world. And beyond that, Pyro is just as loud, boisterous and emotional as you, as well as one of the counselors. It makes sense that he'd sort of steal the spotlight. And, like Quietkal said, Cardbo expressly tried to set up an excuse for you for at least this morning in oversleeping. We want you to be a part of this RP, but you have to actually be a part of it.

tl;dr, I'm sorry I messed up with GMing. It won't happen again. But please, find the motivation to post or leave.

Thats pretty much it.  

On a related note. I'm not complaining, but I was kinda expecting a bit of a reaction to Dart falling off his bunk,   I'd been happy with at least an eye roll. or something.

Hmmmm... overslept? You know, that could work. Plus, as loud as Paladin is, he does have a reflective side to him... so he might of gone off by himself to think before going to sleep....

Bah, it's not like your players didn't know they were riding on the back of a flying apocalyptic dragon robot or something. GMing mistakes happen. Just try to keep in mind plot hooks for the players. Paladin has a sarcastic streak that some characters will react to. Marsh is precognitive which allows you to do all sorts of things as a GM. And more. Ponder something interesting each player could do or interact with.

Well, there's that plot thread down the drain. Also, everyone make a will save to keep from booing Featherbow.[/sarcasm]

Nope. Pyro now feels an irrepressable urge to heckle and abuse Featherbow.

Is this Paladin speaking here? Its the same font color and from what I know of his character so far sounds like him.

No no, The matchy thing was accidental. I would never hijack someone's character and I don't think Paladin has glasses.

Well, I didn't think you hijacked his character. I was more hoping you'd worked something with Fury in advance.

@Fury

How's it look? Should we start posting? Or is there something in particular you had in mind?

Shall I just hop forward to when everybody gets pulled into Featherbow's mind? I'm worried my pacing might be too crazy.

I'm enjoying the pacing so far. In fact, I do have plans for a post, just don't want to step on anyone's toes. If no one objects, I'll put it up in a bit.

I don't want to rush anything. The current characters don't really know who everybody in the party is. They've barely interacted, except with Sargent Pyro. I don't think fast forwarding would help.

That's interesting since I wasn't sure if we were actually supposed to form a more traditional party.

Well if we don't we're going to need to split up. Thats usually an additional headache for the PH, but it might be what Elacular was planning on.

If so, than I shall bow to the will of the PH.

Well, I was hoping we'd do the traditional party thing, but I understand it can't happen right away. I was thinking that Featherbow would assign teams for the first mind dive and Pyro would just sort of end up a part of yours by circumstance.

What might have thrown people off a bit. Its mentioned IC that there are perks for finding arrowheads or doing jobs that count as arrowheads. It somewhat implies that some point the party members will go off on their own to take care of these. If its not too much of a hassle, and it seems like a good idea, specify that parties are only for when using the Psychoportal. In other words, you work through a Psychoportal in s party, but when you exit, you can split up and do what you want.

Thoughts?

Well...there's some things that feel somewhat competitive and antagonistic. Probably mildly amplified by one of the players being one of the counselors. Merely noting things as opposed to complaining.

Hrrrm...Well, I was figuring that you guys could decide which side quests to take as a group when you're more organized. I intended the competition to be more with the other campers (thus the "first group through" getting the reward), but I'm not going to railroad you guys into being happy funtime friends. I guess we'll see what happens. I'm not against you guys forming a party or not forming a party. It's up to you.

Maybe we should discuss it IC? If it seems like a good idea to form a party, we form a party. If not, then we don't.

Paladin had no desire to become a weapon, or a killer... he was a leader, he was sure of that. Even before his telekinesis was unleashed, it was discovered that his psychic powers were inspiring others alongside his words. That is what he wanted to do. To inspire, push ponies to do their best... not to destroy and disrupt. But to lead and heal...

A humble suggestion.  Use this.  If Paladin wants to lead, he should be looking for followers.  I may be a bit biased here regarding my suggestion of forming a party, but I think here would be a perfect opportunity to RP this..

Again, its just a suggestion.  Take or leave as you will.

Hoping I'm not being too pushy, but there doesn't seem to be a response from either Marsham or Cloud to Dart's question.

Are Marsham and Cloud sitting together at breakfast? I'm assuming so, but I didn't see anything to indicate either way.
