So, how many people are sad that the drawing didn't provide a clearer view of said Warlady's flank?

Quote:
The red-headed Warlord paused, and looked up.

I am probably crazy, but I took this to mean that Sylvia was aware something was wrong and was daring fate to man up and kill her. Kinda a continuation of the point of view she showed during her fall:

Quote:
Sylvia was long past "a lack of fear." As she plunged toward the shattered roof, the city swelling up to meet her and the dwagon's limp wings flapping behind like battle standards, she couldn't even manage concern. She faced her doom this time around like a gambler with a pat hand. Oblivion was bluffing. Showboating, even.


Very much a "fate won't let me die, it doesn't have the guts," sort of thing.

    It's nice to see that Sylvia's faith in Fate is justified. Given the foreshadowing of the Errant Tile, displaced and falling as fate's foil, I'll chuckle if Slately tosses Ossomer off the carpet to make his escape (with or without Ossomer's acquiescence), who then falls on top of someone important like Sylvia, Artemis, or maybe Parson, Wanda, et al as they emerge into the atrium (assuming they ever get to moving . . .).

    BTW, while Ossomer is just sitting there being all emo, seriously, why has no one ordered him down to take a hand in things? I mean, Sylvia is right there - this guy's supposed to be a warlord, a badass warrior, and he's being a useless melancholic lump. There's a battle going on, and even if he can't land, he can still take down enemy units as Ansom did on the top of GKs walls (Death From Slightly Above). Someone in command (like Sylvia) should call him down - if he wants to die, let him do so honorably in battle, not sitting there watching the truck bear down on him like a deer caught in the headlights. They don't let people into the City of Heroes for just sitting there waiting for death to claim them because they're all angsty . . .

    And thus far, I'd have to say that the fates haven't been particularly supportive of the Royalist faction - perhaps the Titans themselves realize that the game has grown stale and it's time for a change?

    Oh, and just out of curiosity, where was the Don's surveillance bat hanging from? Was it the tower that's getting ready to fall down and go BOOM?


    Ossomer is technically in a different hex. The food fight put the dwagon stacks in the garrison, but the other airborne units (archons being the only ones I can think of offhand) are stuck in the airspace zone. They can't attack across the hex boundary, since it isn't their turn. Ossomer can only engage if a Jetsone unit enters the airspace zone.

    Why yes, the angle is a bit awkward for mashing in helmets found via image search :P . But one uses what one has.

    Heh, glad you like it. The angle of the head is a bit awkward compared to the helmet, but for now it'll have to do. Until next update at least, when we'll see the duel betw-

    wait, no, next update is Jeftichew. And while the Jeftichew storyline has much more pressing matters to attend to than provide background details about a Tono Porkins turned temporary Wedge, I can't help but wonder what was that Carnymancy thing in Sylvia's poem and whether Jeftichew had a part (or what it was).

    If it was something about a ressurection, then it may even make a perverse Erf sense. After all, Carnymancers cheat, so what's the most epic feat of cheating if not cheating death?

    Sigh.. The uninterrupted win-streak of the Deus ex Knob and the Broken Tools have really made the second book a pure and utter disappointment. Theres absolutely no suspense or drama when you give the protagonists 100% victories, imbalanced/game breaking items and zero casualties. Fail!

    Then again.. i guess i'll stick around a bit longer to se if anything changes (unlikely..). :/

    I SEE WHAT YOU DID THAR.




    Very suspenseful and engaging update, even from someone who professes to not care a huge amount about Sylvia. Actually, I root for her for the same reason I root for Belkar of OOTS. Because she's a badass. But then Artemis, the most professional military unit we've ever seen set up to snipe Sylvia, and I thought that Rob was making a professional soldier vs. warrior argument viz a viz WWII, but then NAW BRO Sylvia just keeps winning.

    And then the art is beautitful, even before you consider the horrifying complexity of that perspective. I will go find a hat solely for the purpose of taking it off to Xin.

    On the topic of bonus, do we know if they are affected by city zones like they are by hex bounds? Since Wanda gives a small bonus to all decrypted, a larger one to each in her hex, and the largest to those in her stack, do we know if Lady Sylvia receives the larger bonus of +4 or just the smaller one of +1?

    That is a good question. One that I don't think we know the answer to yet.

    Oh, a lot of people will die. The tower is crumbling, so most units inside it are doomed. Slatley will have to mount a unipegataur and takes flight, probably with the mancers, or they all go down with the tower.

    Artemis will also now send her knights in a suicide charge trying to take down the purples, but since Wanda's still around providing super uncrypted bonus, Hamster will arrive at any moment for another bonus, and Trems is kinda too busy dying to provide his own bonus, Sylvia will easily "recruit" Artemis to GK.

    He can't act; that's why he's so emo and melancholy. The dragon riders managed to transition to the atrium via the exploit and are therefore capable of action, but Oss and the Archons can take no action against anyone who does not enter the airspace. In a prior update, he was angsting over the fact that he didn't want to ride the carpet in the first place and if he'd been riding a mount like he wanted, he could have harvested it and been down in the think of things with everybody else. Since this battle started, he's been killed, resurrected, forced to betray his family, forced to provide cover for a "dishonorable" parlay attack, and now completely forgotten by his own team while left hanging at the edge of the enemy's stronghold. I think he's kind of entitled to be emo.
