How badly do I need the Indestructible?
Lord Fell wrote:I also assume that the "base form" of a device is a free feature, within reason. If it were a sword, I could cut things. This is a rope...
Lord Fell wrote:I paid for Extended Reach, but I would still expect it to function like a rope (eg: I can tie someone up with it). I also bought Close Combat: Lariat to use with it (lariat = lasso). So... can I use it to snare one of the sorceress' staves? Or, perhaps I should be buying Improved Feats with it, eg. Improved Trip or Choke-hold... I'd have to drop Swinging to do that, but I'm not super tied to that power anyways.
Lord Fell wrote:The notion that she has a certain amount of direct mental control over her lasso is also intriguing. If that thing had any fibre-optics, she could "snake-charm" it, and use it to look around corners and such. At the moment, the mental control she has is mostly descriptor on how she can throw a lasso, snare something to swing on, and then have free rope to throw for her next swing-point (she mentally unties the loop, and wills the loop back into her hand for the next toss).
Lord Fell wrote:...so, can I get a bit of GM input on my Iconic-but-Reimagined Device?
Lord Fell wrote:My suggestion would be that we post our actions in a mob, and then resolve. The problem with waiting for the person ahead of you is that it can slow a game down ridiculously, at a time (combat) when action should be at it's fastest. With my dismal roll of 3, if I have to wait for all 5 players plus GM resolution.... it's entirely possible that I might be sitting out this thread for 5 to 10 days before I can post my action.
