Black Unto The Ground The cloister bell tolls, and Brother Josh and Brother Kevan are still debating points of scripture across the refectory table. “While the Lord resisteth the proud,” says Brother Josh, raising an empty fork to tap the air dramatically, “it is only implicit in his word that his servants should encourage… Kevan 11/26/20 2 11/26/20

Integer Prestige A reminder to Pathfinders that “If a rule implies that the result of any calculation should be an integer (for instance, by attempting to store that result in, or add it to, a gamestate variable that can only hold integers), the result of the calculation is instead the result rounded… Kevan 09/04/20 0

Hazard Warning Crew are advised that a low cloud of poisonous gregite monoxide now surrounds the Haniver, as a result of Pathfinder Jumble’s use of a fire extinguisher on the crystals found there.

Scanning Errors As pointed out in comments on What’s Mined Is Mine, Zyborg’s use of the Bone Scanner on Vertorite was invalid, as the ruleset at the time required them to “Update the Equipment rule to list the effect of that Equipment on that Thing” .

Data Error in Mission Log 11109 Pathfinder Raven1207 updated the mission log with a supplemental request of “Please tell me if i did this right”.

Mentor Reminder A reminder that we haven’t had anyone formally take up a Mentorship role since the new tracking system enacted last dynasty, and we still have a new player, Raven1207, who’s asked to be Mentored without anybody being assignable.

Ascension Address: New Ganymede Sunrise on an unexplored planet.

Collector Space A narrative point that’s niggling at me, and probably worth pinning down: what exactly is a “Collection”, if items can be stashed there for free and returned at the expense of Reality Damage?

Game Changelog Good to see some old players unidling.

Pointing to TyGuy6 With a trembling, snapped stick of chalk I gesture to the monster in front of us. Somehow this final transformation feels different to the others. Can we really be sure that they’ll return to human form? Kevan 12/07/19 1 12/07/19
Lore and Order The Duke of Waltham reverted TyGuy6 and myself both claiming double Lore bonuses this week, but I think they were legal: our first two were claimed under the old action “As a weekly action, an Adventurer can make a Story Post with the tag “[Lore]” with at least 150 words… Kevan 11/16/19 3 11/16/19

Battle: First Blood A clammy hand reaches up from behind the altar, pulling a sickened figure to its feet. In its other hand it has recovered its sword, now dull and blackened. With the last vestiges of its thought as an Adventurer still swirling, the Monster initiates a Battle with itself as Vanguard. Kevan 11/08/19 50 11/16/19
The First Transformation [Monster] Kevan collapses silently out of sight behind the altar. The candles dim and flicker, and an olive green mist begins to condense out of the dusty air. An oily sheen spreads across the bare stone floor of the cathedral, and above the group the golden ornaments slowly begin to tarnish.… Kevan 11/08/19 0
Klaxon TyGuy6 is suggesting that the post I made earlier called A Monster isn’t explicit enough about “stating that there is a new Monster, and who it is.” There’s a Monster. This Monster is new. This Monster is me, the Adventurer named Kevan. Kevan 11/07/19 1 11/07/19
A Monster Ignoring the babbling of the priest, the group of adventurers pushes past him and heads towards the apse, swords drawn. Their eyes dart quickly over the gilded ornamentation of the cathedral, searching for a sign of the relic that all the prophecies and rumours have pointed towards. Figures and curlicues… Kevan 11/07/19 9 11/08/19
