Do I get a vote? Because I was hoping to start out right when the twins wake up...

But it's not a big deal to me. Up to you.

I'm not really sure what we should be doing next. Dusk is gone for the next few hours, so I can't really discuss it with him yet. Is there something we SHOULD be doing, like reporting in to Rainbow Dash or someone about what happened? Or did that happen beforehand?

P.s. Is there a skype group for this game? If so someone should add me.

A) There is a Skype group: it would help if we knew what your username was. Moreover, fair warning: I mainly use Skype to talk to individual players. I don't check the group convo much.

B) Right now, Water Drop and Glowing Soft should be discussing where they want to go next.

@ Everyone else: I don't especially care where the next part of the story happens (I can put that wishing well anywhere), provided it isn't Ponyville and is inside Equestria: does anyone have a particular place they'd like to visit? EDIT: Nevermind, I suddenly thought of a place that matters.

Post  Crystalite on Mon Oct 20, 2014 12:12 pm

Yup. Here's why I did that:

A) Bubbling Spring and Lavender Rain are both in the room. You wanted to recruit one and check up on the other. Recruit! Check up!

B) You wanted to report on the battle. Priness Sparkle is also in the room: if that's not good enough of a pony to report to then you need to re-watch season 4. Especially the finale, which all of you should have watched anyways. Report!

Yeah, well, we were gonna do all of that stuff in time- I just thought you were gonna let us figure out what to do next on our own, not just grab us and send us there.

Hmmm.... "In time" is actually a good way of putting it. I do want you to stop and figure out certain things on your own: but not right now. I want to get you moving along to the things that'll really make you think. Comparing this to an episode from the show: we're still in the first part before the theme song where the scene gets set. I want to get to the middle where things actually happen.

I love double-posting...

I wanted to keep you in suspense for a bit; bu, considering my upcoming vacation (Check the Absence thread) I think I shoukd go ahead and clue you in on the briefcase.

It is going to serve a dual purpose: for one thing, it is significantly bigger on the inside than out. You now have a Bag of Holding!

...However. Using it has consequences. Putting people inside may involve side adventures to get them back out. Moreover, I am gping to create a Table of Contents: everytime you open it, something random is going to fall out. It may or may not have a noticeable impact.

Of course, your characters don't know that yet. But, there's enough call to distrust Discord to say "no" if you want to.

Up to three! I hope the admins don't mind.

As I said, if nobody else has anything to ask Discord about, we will be doing the Play-by-Post equivalent of a preparation montage before we go to Phillydelphia. Why? Because I'm feeling generous, the story is moving forward, the characters have grown a little, and it feels like a really good time to bring everyone up to Level 2!

Mechanically, this means you get a (Permanent!) +1 bonus to all Skills and Defenses, 3 Exalted Ability Points (For utility stuff), and 2 Exalted Trait Points (For combat). Naturally, I would like to know what new stuff you decide to get. Flavor wise, I will want to see just how you decide to prepare In-character: you can do this over PM, or Skype, or in the IC Thread if you like, depending on just how you plan to prepare: it doesn't make much difference as long as I get to see it. Besides justifying your new abilities (Through studying, practice, and/or acquiring new equipment), this would also be a good time to declare any particular items you want to have with you (If it were me, this would be things like rope, sharp implements, and the first aid kit, but that's just me). Things anybody really ought to be able to get with minimal effort, see. If you want something a little more exotic (For instance, ZamuelNow could tell you about the can of compressed cloud I asked for once) then ask first, please, but it's probably not an issue.

Yay! Level up! I'm getting a free upgrade to Out of a Hat to be able to summon doves, and I'll also get Sound Design and an Expert Skill in Might for Teddy. In combat, I'm taking Conjurer's Trick so I can summon Teddy immediately for free, basically.

Aaaah, that figures. Just when I thought I was done with character sheets for a while. I have another comment or two for Discord though, so...

Would I be allowed to change my feature while leveling up?

@ Telebiscuit: Yeah, it happens. Don't worry, the trouble of fixing your sheet again is balanced by getting cool and new stuff.

@ Sunbeam and Everyone in General: Yes, if you want to re-work your character build - whether it's your feature, your Skill allotment, or Abilities, now would be a good time to do it. Be sure to let me know when you're done, and clue me in on the changes.

Actually I was referring to the two character sheets I had to build this weekend. Such a chore.

And of course now I'm leveling up characters that don't really belong to me in a system I'm not familiar with. Gurk!

EDIT: also I have a question. Was it a thing I read somewhere that you could trade out Exalted points for Novice points? Because I have one left over that I can't use.

1 exalted ability point = 2 novice ability points

2 legendary ability points = 3 exalted ability points.

I believe, however, that you cannot trade trait points. I'd have to check, though, and I'm not entirely sure why.
EDIT: Nevermind, the 2 legendary--> 3 Exalted trade still works just fine. There's just no novice tier, and you can't upsell trait points (you can't convert 6 exalted trait points into 2 legendary trait points).

CHANGELOG:
Character sheet for reference: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UyPkQ-I2_47xruCIYoLrfSjuzoMWxvfO3Xa664pE-04/edit#

-Added 2 Novice traits and 1 exalted trait:
Smoke Bomb (2 novice) – 3/Extended Rest
Concealment (2 novice) – 5/Extended Rest
Air Blast (1 exalted) – 2/Short Rest

The 'units' that are primarily in red are just noted for later levels, I don't actually have them yet.

Combat was completely overhauled. The changes are tabulated below, but I suggest you just look at the character sheet.

-Feature changed from energetic to Slayer.
-Special move changed from Jester's Tricks to Juggernaut's Jug
-Gained the trait (2 exalted) Quickdraw
-I think...exactly two basic powers remain from his old moveset, Conjure Guardian Spirit and Shield. As well as I can remember:
  -Demand Duel replaced with Quickdraw
  -Bulls-eye replaced with Rush for the Kill
  -Devouring Blade replaced with Elemental Tempest
  -One with the earth replaced with Berserker's wrath
  -Withering Blade replaced with Vampiric Blade

I think that covers everything.

Re: Wanderlust: Equestrian Nights - Play By Post (Recruiting!)

Post  Telebiscuit Jen on Tue Oct 28, 2014 2:01 am

Ah, thought so, thanks. Ok, Well in that case I took:
Exalted Abilities:
Air Blast (1) – 2/Short Rest <1> Water Drop
Time: 2 Seconds
You project a blast of air from you. This can do a few things:
- You can propel yourself up to 50 feet into the air (provided no objects stop you).
- You completely stop the descent of yourself and all allies within 10 feet for a split-second, without causing harm to any of the affected creatures.

Stretching The Mind (1) <2> Glowing Soft
Prerequisite: Telekinesis
The range of your Telekinesis increases to 100 feet.

Traits:
(1) Practiced Medicine
You begin battles with 4 extra energy. This energy can only be used on Healing powers.

(1) Crack Shot
Your first Single Attack Power each round deals an additional 1d6 damage to its target.
And I'm thinking of trading my last Exalted point for 2 Novice points and taking Create Water:
Spoiler:
Create Water (2) – At Will
Time: 2 Seconds
You can safely create up to 200 gallons of fresh, pure water per day. You can project this water in streams that can hit targets up to 50 feet away, but it isn’t strong enough to deal damage. These spouts of water are identical to that of freshwater sources, allowing for drinking, washing, extinguishing fires, watering plants, pushing/propelling small objects or creatures and similar uses.

Is there any general or specific objection to Water Drop learning how to magically make water? (Would be flavored as her learning Advanced Waterbending, so to speak, and being able to pull moisture from the air.)

Weeeell, Copper Rose did manage to pull a cloud out of thin air on a Natural 20. It sounds like what you're talking about is just taking some time to learn how to do it again.

Incidentally: Don't forget that I want to see some IC pieces describing this sort of stuff. It can be in the main thread, or privatelyif you prefer, but I want to see the In-Character Excuse for new abilities.

Well that's what the lunch date everyone keeps trying to screw up was for. Perfectly simple just to talk with Wandering Eye, talk about the fight, exploring their abilities...

I guess now I'll have to do that along with entertaining everyone else too.

((I'm going to stand back and watch for this one. You guys can have joint control over any NPCs you think would be there: in particular, Pinkie Pie and both Cakes are there. Twilight and Discord are not. Don't go overboard and let me know if you need anything.))

Uhhh....
