#7095448 Fire Emblem: Soul of Heaven [IC/PG-16]

Posted by Black on 17 April 2018 - 09:04 PM

The Day Before…

”What do you mean, we need to go on a shopping trip? We just got back! I’m supposed to, like… Update my journal or something.” The idea of setting out on another trip so soon, when he could be resting seemed to rub Layne the wrong way as he gave the shaman an incredulous look.

”I need to find material to remake my robes. It’s not like I can just skip over to the next town and buy one in the middle of “Jouran devil” land." Ada crossed her arms, giving the cleric a sad look. “If you don’t go with me, who will? Besides, you love crowds!”

A small sigh escaped him as he rubbed at his neck a bit, taking a little glance around the area he had claimed for himself, he closed the pages of his journal as he sat up, ”You couldn’t ask one of the others to go with you? What about…” He trailed off, a little mumble escaping him as he grinned, ”I bet Cassia could help you! She could get you a real steal of a deal too.”

Layne’s wordplay was met with an icy stare. After a beat passed, Ada coughed to break the silence.

"I would like to not get in any trouble if I can. It took me months to get the townspeople to not avoid me, much less talk to me. I don’t trust anyone but you, Yue, or Leon to not make a scene. Leon’s busy, Yue disappears when I enter a room, and that leaves you. If you’re really not up to it, though… I’ll pay for dinner… and maybe lend you that novel you’ve been asking for?"

The proposition was met with a little hum, his hand rubbing at his chin for a moment as he considered it. ”Dinner and the book, all for escorting you to the town, huh? I guess it couldn’t hurt… And no funny business, huh? You really just want to try to replace the material, no… Grand adventures or hidden goals?”

"What, you don’t want me to set you up with the cute shopkeeper boy? But you two would be cute together!” Ada teased, grinning like an opossum, "But no, just robe stuff and the bookstore… Unless you wanted to go somewhere else?”

He let out a little grumble from the teasing coming from Ada, his eyes rolling a little bit as he hummed, ”I guess I could stop by the bookstore, I’m always on the lookout for things to keep my interest…” He shrugged, giving her a little defeated sigh as he did, ”Fine, fine, I’ll tag along. No trying to set me up though.”

It didn’t take long for the two to get prepared for the journey, and the trip itself was relatively uneventful. The two arrived in Neston near dusk, the sun beginning to set as they found an inn to stay in for the night, ready to rise early in the morning in order to get Ada’s ‘chores’ out of the way...




The Next Day…

The duo awoke early as they intended, groggy from rising before the sun had fully rose. After a quick breakfast and waiting for the sun to emerge, they set out to complete their tasks. They started with the bookstore, an easy enough one since they would be running all over the rest of the town after this most likely. Ada went on her own to pick out her own books, while Layne browsed in another section, waiting for her to find him. On another day, they probably could’ve spent hours finding for the perfect books, but…

They didn’t have the time. After about an hour of early morning book browsing, Layne went off to find Ada and drag her out of the store after paying for their goods.

What followed was a few hours of torturous shopping, all without pay off. Each shop seemed less equipped to handle their needs than the last, and it was with a heavy hand that Layne forced Ada to accept that they weren’t going to find what they were looking for here. Without any alternatives, Layne had her pick out some fabric that was similar enough, not exact, but still close enough to her tastes… And lots of it. Similarly, he picked up some thread and needles, along with some other supplies that would make future repairs to clothing simpler…

And the two began the journey back to the base.



"'You really do look Aeoran!', they said! 'You don't need those creepy garments!', they insisted!"

Ada stormed into the base with bags in her hands, grumbling loudly. Unlike any other day, she was wearing clothes that could be deemed 'more normal' in the area. She appeared to be a swordswoman, rather than a shaman, complete with her purple hair up in a ponytail. One might even think that she resembled a character from the Sacred World... however, the sunburn she was sporting would stop that thought in its tracks.

"Damn merchants, they've seen my face before, what's with those reactions?!"

Shortly after the girl barged in, Layne followed behind her, a little laugh escaping him as he held his hand up in front of his mouth. He tried to keep it from being too noticeable, but it was practically impossible to hide the fact that he was amused from Ada’s frustration as he shrugged his shoulders a bit. His focus shifted upwards as he hummed, ”Hey, hey, it’s okay. We’ll find a way to replace your robe. Maybe I can take a look and see if I can stitch it back together?”

He chuckled softly her as she barged through the doorway, holding his own bags over his shoulder as he hummed to himself, taking a little glance around the entryway of the base as he walked in with her, ”I mean, I don’t have the most experience with it, but I can’t make them much worse, can I?”

“It’s in absolute tatters, Layne. I only have the one big shred I was showing the merchants…” Ada sighed, producing said piece of fabric and waving it at the cleric, "And I couldn’t find a material that quite matched it… We can work on it, but they didn’t seem too enthused about the idea of me making a new robe."

He rubbed at his cheek for a moment, ”I mean… We could make you a nice hand towel with the scrap?” He grinned a little bit more as he watched her wave the piece of fabric around, a little mumble escaping him as he did, “This is what happens when you get too attached to a fancy outfit! It gets destroyed! Why do you think I keep my outfit simple? Sleeveless shirt, pants, jacket if it’s cold. That’s all you need!”

"You wouldn’t get it..." Ada puffed her cheeks out, placing the scrap back into the bag and pulling a book out in its place, "At least they had the second book in the Ribald Tales of the Faith War series available. Maybe I’ll lend it to you if you can remake that ‘fancy outfit’, hm?”

As she playfully stuck her tongue out at Layne, she heard some noise coming from the office. Peeking her head in, she found Rona moving about, tidying up the small room. Raising a brow and setting her bags down at the entrance to the office, Ada cleared her throat, alerting Rona to the lobster in the room.

"So, uh… whatcha up to in here?”

guys this card is fucking garbage

 

first off, it only works if you choose to play into it, barring a little bit of link spam stuff

 

secondly, it's slow and doesn't aid any wincon, and no, wetland frogs isn't a point

 

there is nothing to gain here

Uh... the entire team bar 1 was neutral or positive. I never made my stance clear.

This is her own decision.

#7090554 Pokemon: Mind and Soul [IC/PG-13/Not Accepting]

Posted by Black on 27 March 2018 - 08:41 PM

Genny had accepted the bag of trail mix with a small nod, though Jackie quickly moved about to set up Ivan's tent, in the blink of an eye. The perfomer watched the other two as she unrolled her sleeping bag, top of the line for comfort, inadvertently flaunting her wealth. With a stretch, she sat the trail mix down, rubbing Etoile's head as Rus and Jackie lit a fire, yawning softly.
 
"look! Now we also have a camp fire! Thanks Rus," Jackie announced, beaming as she per her Pokemon, "so, you want to do anything else tonight guys?"

"Non, I think mon papillon and myself will turn in for the night... After all, early to bed, early to rise! Campfires always make me sleepy, too... Bonne nuit, Jackie, Ivan."

Sealing the tent with one last smile, Genny got comfortable and slid into the sleeping bag, holding her baby pokemon tight as she began to drift off, the excitement of the day catching up with her. As sleep swallowed her, she wondered if she had made any slip-ups, but those were lost as her gentle snores escaped the tent. If the other two took notice of her small slip-up before she fell asleep, she would be none the wiser.

I wanna come back to this later tonight, but I do want to point out that the team is still slimming.

 

We’re losing Zai. That takes us to 7.

We seem to be losing another member. Down to 6.

 

Adding a new mod will likely happen whether it’s Birdie or not. Discussing whether or not we need more members still has merit, but it’s likely that a successor will be appointed in the foreseeable future.

That might have been what happened to me earlier.

 

I inexplicably had a tab open mobile, despite the post being made in Classic on my phone... But then it broke horribly when I posted it. Strange.

Why are people letting this stagnate? Isn’t that something that was universally seen as a problem?

 

I didn’t want to get involved here, given the potential nepotism points (though I doubt anyone would), but it’s been 5 days. This is dying like everything else. I’ll admit the mods haven’t discussed anything in regards to this yet, either, but that just means we’re all stagnating.

If you like her, support her! If you dislike her, oppose her!

 

Don’t throw a vote and leave it. That doesn’t help a conversation that’s about being open and considering options and community feedback.
 
There are 22 yes and 6 no. Of those, the no have at least a few speaking up, and it seems like some non-voters also voiced an opinion. If you’re invested in the site, then speak up, have a voice! Sitting back and letting it happen helps no one.

#7088891 "No Deleting and Reposting Statuses" Rule

Posted by Black on 20 March 2018 - 08:59 PM

I want a discussion on this.

 

The idea behind the rule was to prevent people from making a status, deleting it, and posting a new, different status, with the logic that a typo can be fixed in the comments.

 

However, this feels like it's jumping through hoops to prevent a fairly niche scenario with maybe 1-2 realistic offenders.

 

I suggest that we remove the rule as a whole, and I would like the community and staff's input on this.




#7088037 Odd-Eyes Phantasma Dragon (YA05)

Posted by Black on 16 March 2018 - 12:15 PM

It’s honestly good. It gets back resources that are locked in ED, allowing you to convert advantage into better advantage.

What’s notable is that this is a scale 0 Odd-Eyes, which means it pairs well with arc pendulum.

But that’s also the problem. You see, you can Pendulum Summon Persona Dragon, as well as use it as a defensive tool. This has more utility in the scale, but it’s harder to take advantage of your cards if you cut Persona for this. It’s still really good, but it’s not quite as versatile and useful, overall.

It’s probablt a fine 2-of, mostly due to Astro.

And no, Odd-Eyes doesn’t “need” a Link. The deck is fine, Electrumite is insane.
