    Erik

    Watching the murderer char brought little emotion to my face, death was rapidly becoming a normal thing in my life since being around the Ice Queen meant it happened... well, commonly might not be the right word but close enough. The fire blast was really powerful though. Way more than necessary...

    The fire had also sent a burning hot column of air directly into my face. It didn't hurt, but it stunned me for a half second and I heard a slight ringing. Straining my ears, it took me a moment to hear Haruna's question. "Trust you? Yeah, why?"

    "Umm... what's that yelling though?"
    Yeah, sorry, PAX East was over the weekend and not until Sak PM'd me did I realize I hadn't told you guys. I was working crazy hours last week to get all my work done in time and then I left late Wednesday and just got back today.

    Haruna

    "No time," I said, grabbing Erik's hand and pulling him around the corner where I heard the cries coming from. I could see Roland straining under the weight of something... somethings... trying to pry their way out of the big container. The one that had the sigils plastered over it. Whatever was in there was awful, it was connected to Rutland, it had taken lives--

    "Watch my ass in case this goes wrong," I said, taking a knee and digging both hands into the dirt and sand. I began to concentrate, gathering as much earth magic around me as I could handle.

    I could hear Erik start saying something but that was drowned out by the sound of the earth groaning as something big shifted underneath us. I poured every ounce of energy I had into the working, and as the magic took form underneath me my heart thundered and my pride swelled--Lily's lessons in her garden had certainly not gone to waste. I finished molding the construct much faster than I expected; only a few breaths had passed. "Get ready," I said over my shoulder and applied the gift of Summer, of life and growth, to the form beneath us.

    A fist made out of clay and rock the size of a tractor wheel rose out of the earth followed by a body that could have been right at home alongside a small hillock. It groaned its way out of the ground and bits of soil sloughed off as it shook itself, a motion that was almost natural. I exhaled sharply and my vision swam as I almost blacked out under the wave of fatigue that swept over me. "Smash 'em," I said, my words slurring and my arms suddenly feeling very noodly as I tried not to pass out. The beast of soil, sand and clay, my finest working yet, responded with a tectonic growl that rattled in my rib cage as it lumbered forward, its massive pillar-like arms supporting its shambling gait like a giant rocky gorilla.

    so I don't know what you want to set the complexity at for something like this, but using Summer Magic I can cast certain types of thaumaturgic effects as evocations, and i basically want to create a sand and earth equivalent of the Chlorofiend from Summer Knight; stats for it are on Our World p 32, and it's only a -5 refresh monster. i figure creating a badass golem to hold the line while Erik thinks up something to wipe these ghouls out is a pretty cool thing to do

    the rules don't really lay out what it takes to actually make a construct beyond that it takes "extra energy" to create a true AI, so I'm going to ballpark it; it's a refresh 5 base, except i want to up its toughness and strength to Supernatural levels, which brings it up to 9 refresh, so we'll say 9 shifts to actually construct the body out of dirt and stone and grass, which I am going to affectionately name The Hulkalanche

    and since the book is vague on the details of how to create an AI, i'm going to apply some fate logic and say by doing a maneuver (3 shifts) to apply an aspect Smarter Than It Looks and making it scene-long (3 shifts) i can have my golem for only 15 total shifts for the rest of the scene which seems pretty reasonable

    Haruna's seelie magic scores are 6 conviction / 6 discipline, and with the final mental box marked, Haruna can call up an additional 3 shifts for 9 safely; the other six is going to have to come from a major Mental consequence: Exhausted

    this means Haruna's stress boxes are:

    Phys OOOOO (Moderate: Walking With a Limp
    Mental OOXX (Major: Exhausted)

    and now for the casting roll:

    creating a Hulkalanche: 4dF+6 7

    i could have done better but I can't complain; that actually means, by spending the four Fate Points i've accrued here i can actually successfully hit that roll with a +8 total, by invoking High Concept (Half-Sidhe Sorceress and Ecologist), Growth and Nourishment, Crazy Like a Fox, and No Mercy to the Undeserving

    also so i don't forget, i think i have one compel's worth coming at the end of the scene for toasting guard mcmurderer, so there's that. anyway, HULKALANCHE SMAAAASH

    vra8fr.jpg
    THE HULKALANCHE

    Aspects: Faerie Earth Monster, Smarter Than It Looks, Hulkalanche Smash

    Endurance +4

    i dunno how Sak wants to handle the Hulkalanche's actions, if I should just have it act in place of me or if he wants to roll the stuff for it

    edit: screw it imma have the Hulkalanche tear open the container like a soda can

    Haruna

    I gave Roland a weak thumbs up. Though my vision was still teeter-tottering and fuzzy along the edges I could see the earthen construct lope its way over to the shipping container, brace itself... and then do something I didn't expect.

    It gently nudged Roland aside and, with the sound of shearing aluminum, tore off the doors of the shipping container like it was opening a box of cracker jack.

    "GWWWOOOOAAAOOOOOOO," it roared and I swear to god the ground quaked as the battle cry echoed around McCarran. Jesus, everyone within a mile probably felt that, to say nothing of hearing it. If whatever was in that container had ears it's likely they were bleeding. Well, that's what I'd hoped.

    I suddenly wished I carried a gun for times like these as I saw the creature pull a ghoul out of the shipping container in its earthy grip... and then another followed it out, jumping atop the stony hulk... and then another... and another... and another...

    "Oh... oh fuck!" I yelled, probably a little too loudly, scrambling to my feet. Well, that was my intention anyway; my body was still dealing with the immense amount of strain I'd put it under from my spell, and I sort of stumbled backwards and fell onto my ass.

    i figure the Hulkalanche is gonna use its action to basically place itself center stage as the main threat, using its Hulking Size to its advantage to put up a Might-based block for the ghouls to actually get around the damn thing and out of the container itself

    Hulkalanche Block!: 4dF+7 6

    so the Ghouls gotta Athletics their way around a +6 block to get past the Hulkalanche, i guess they could try challenging it with Might too but i somehow doubt they can armwrestle a stone golem

    so for anyone who doesn't know, if you preorder the Paranet Papers in hardcopy from the Evil Hat webstore you get a free e-copy of the book now

    it has a lot of great stuff, including expanded explanations and clarifications on magic

    and uh, after reading that i definitely lowballed the fuck out of the Hulkalanche; going by the necromancy rules (the closest thing to golemming) you have to drop two shifts for each point of refresh's worth, and an additional shift per skill

    so the complexity for the original chlorofiend is 23, and the Hulkalanche is 30

    i will note this in the future, also it requires a steady stream of will and concentration to keep it together which i'm fine to incorporate now

    ArcanisTheImpotent on
  • OptimusZedOptimusZed Registered User regular
    I'm not surprised that summoning/animating is that expensive. It's the kind of thing that is typically done via long ritual (which can add bonuses to the roll if I'm remembering correctly) and it throws a new, disposable body into a fight that is probably better suited than the caster to throw down.

    One shift per refresh is a nice, round approach. Which makes it feel like something Fate would do, though.

    If it were me running the game, I might just require (a ton of) extra stress for animating. But I'll need to read the new stuff before deciding, probably.

    well it's two shifts per refresh point of powers but yea

    and yeah I was guesstimating based on mechanisms in the system already in place and taking advantage of my sponsor being that I'm in line with summers agenda

    I could actually make the 30 shifts through sponsor debt if I wanted to

    I figure at this point having drained my FP pool and taken a major consequence and having to sacrifice my own actions is a good compromise without retconning the whole shebang

    and it's certainly not something I plan to do often because outside of sponsor debt I don't have the kinds of resources to do it

    ArcanisTheImpotent on
  • ArcanisTheImpotentArcanisTheImpotent Registered User regular
    that being said I'm fine with taking on some sponsor debt if Sak deems it so

    I have no problem being summers puppet in the interest of fun :D

  • OptimusZedOptimusZed Registered User regular
    I was referring to your original formulation of the spell on the one shift per refresh thing. Is sponsor debt a new thing or something I missed because I've never magiced in this system before?

    oh, yeah, it seemed reasonable at the time XD

    sponsor debt is a part of any type of sponsored magic (except soulfire but we'll discuss that later), and it basically is a thing that a wizard can accrue at his option when he can't pay his own bills magically speaking; as long as it's aligned with the sponsor's agenda, the sponsor will pay for it... and then can call payment due at a later time

    2 shifts = 1 debt

    the debt can be called in however the sponsor wants in the form of compels that the player can't opt out of (with the usual negotiation of compels at the table of course)

    acquiring the flexibility and debt of a sponsor is at the player's discretion though, you can turn that tap on and off whenever you wish, it just offers that extra reserve to do, well, anything as long as you're okay with letting the sponsor color the spell

    get hit by a car and don't want to take a consequence? have the sponsor pay for it
    need some shifts to keep your spell from going haywire and killing you and/or your friends? have the sponsor cover you
    need a superpower in a pinch? the sponsor will foot your bill

    and the debt rises and then one day you gotta give the devil his due

    I have the day off today and all of the plans I had have fallen through so, looks like it is time for some rapid fire Dresden Files posting.
    lj570c9ygbyf.jpg

    Haruna, Erik, and Roland

    More ghouls fanned out in front of the construct even as some of the others scurried over its enormous body like insects. Harrying the enormous creature they attacked one after another, swiping at it with their claws or pummeling it with their fists. They looked like ants swarming over a beetle that'd wandered into their path.
    Well...my ghouls aren't in the same weight class as the hulkalanche. However they are seriously pissed off and hungry so lets see what they can do. Rather than trying to climb over Haruna's construct they're just going to try and tear it apart.

    Ghoul 1 Fists: 2
    Ghoul 2 Fists: 7
    Ghoul 3 Fists: 3
    Ghoul 4 Fists: 4
    Ghoul 5 Fists: 2
    Ghoul 6 Fists: 2
    Ghoul 7 Fists: 4
    Ghoul 8 Fists: 6
    Ghoul 9 Fists: 4
    Ghoul 10 Fists: 2
    Ghoul 11 Fists: 5
    Ghoul 12 Fists: 1

    Keep in mind each of those counts as a Weapon 4 attack if it hits.

    Jacob

    Landing just inside the destroyed window Jacob entered the sporting goods store ducking behind a row of shelves stocked with what appeared to be mountain climbing equipment. Someone, almost certainly the ghouls, had shut off all of the lights leaving the interior in nearly total darkness. The only light was coming through the window that they'd shattered, and even that was barely enough to see by. Peeking around the corner of the shelves he caught a glimpse of the darkened store. A pair of escalators leading down to the first floor were situated in the middle of the store. Someone had gone o the trouble of setting up a basketball hoop and they'd also roped of a relatively small area to serve as a court. More shelves were piled high with all manner of sporting goods including: balls of various shapes and sizes, protective equipment, and shoes designed for a wide variety of activities.
    The ghouls aren't interested in fighting Jacob again, especially after that little dust up in the sewers. They're playing hide and seek.

    2 (take a minor), 7, 3, 4 (take a moderate), 2, 2 (roll up to 3), 4 (roll up to 5), 6, 4 (roll up to 8), 2 (roll up to 9), 5 (roll up to 10), miss

    Hulkalanche Stress:
    OXXXXXXXXX
    Consequences: Missing Bits and Pieces (Minor), Staggered (Moderate)

    well, the Hulkalanche managed to barely withstand a full onslaught of 12 attacks thanks to a rather poor roll. hope Roland and Erik have a trick up their sleeve :p

    With Inhuman Speed? Two minutes to get there and back. It'd give the ghouls another round and Erik would have the hold the fort with the hulkalanche until you get back.

    Are Haruna, Jacob, and/or Erik in the same zone as the Hulkalanche and all the ghouls?

    On that note, if a spell targets everything in a zone, that means it hits everything at the same weapon rating, right? So like if I rolled 6 shifts on my spell attack roll, I could hit everything in a single zone (-2 shifts) with a Weapon: 4 (-4 shifts) attack?

    Also, I'm going back and reading what that potion was supposed to do. I've completely forgotten, lol

    Jacob

    From the top of the escalator Jacob had a clear line of sight downstairs where three people had been tied together with brightly colored ropes. They all appeared to be store employees judging from their almost identical clothing. Two of them were men, and they both bore signs of a recent struggle that had left them the worse for wear. One of them was clearly unconscious with his head lolling down onto his chest, while the second man's lip was split and the left side of his face was swelling rapidly. The third captive was a woman, but not the same one who'd been dragged to the window a few minutes ago, she was an athletic looking red head with an artificial looking tan.

    A pair of milky skinned men wearing Wrangler's jerseys and sweatpants were standing at the bottom of the escalator alongside of the captives. The taller of the two was toying with a serrated hunting knife while staring at the bound woman a few feet away. "...don't see why we can't eat I few of them."

    "Because they are not for eating." The second ghoul continued staring in the opposite direction aiming a hunting rifle into the darkness.

    The first man snorted. Standing up and walking towards the girl who cringed as he seized her chin and forced her to lift her gaze to meet his. "What else are they're kind good for?"

    Haha, yeah, I looked back. It was "throw this at things if you need a distraction". So uh, here goes.

    Also, it'd be Roland that was running for more guns, =P

    Erik

    The giant earth golem shook me almost off my feet when it appeared, and watching it get pummeled by a ravenous pack of ghouls kind of dulled my desire to remain in this area. Remembering the small glass vial that the Ice Queen gave me earlier and what her explanation was, I waste no time.

    I pull the potion (or whatever it was...) out of my jacket pocket, line up, and hurl it right at the Hulkalanche. The ghouls have nearly pulled it down already and at least right now, its drawing them all to one spot. You lived a short life, buddy, but here's hoping you go out in a blaze of glory.

    As soon as the phial is out of my hand, I turn and get my arm under Haruna. Having no idea what would happen if destroying her creation had any backlash, I started supporting her weight and hustled as quickly as I could away from the melee. I turned to Roland and yelled, in case it wasn't paying attention.

    "Run!"

    Roland

    I ran.

    Maybe there's a grenade launcher under my seat, I reassured myself. Or a passing helicopter will drop a rocket launcher for me to use. Anything to convince myself that I did not just let a dozen slavering cannibal monsters loose on the biggest airport in the city.
    If the vial's result is anything less than a thermonuclear explosion, Roland is getting a bigger gun (possibly several bigger guns) and heading back to clean up.
