Dear Rasgorn,

Oooh, I wish, I wish, I wish I could. I read 'investigator' and I laughed and clapped with glee to myself. I'm going to have to turn it down because I'm sooo busy with other things right now. I don't feel like I have any time for RH right now. I'm sorry. I'm so busy being an investigator in real life examining my past, finding things. Losing things, finding things again. I can barely keep track of my notes irl. See the OOC thread to understand it. I do miss you & Horseman so much too!

4th Post!!

+ keep all promises.

I've been trying to structure my spent time as if the parts of my day are college classes and the only thing I can seem to do is get medicine, exercise, rest, food, lyric writing, leading Trump around, and making cosmetics structured. The rest of it falls to the side.

Doing a little life planning here, because I feel like showing off a little:
2018 - 2022 - write and copyright lyrics in yearly books for popular bands including Metallica, Godsmack, Imagine Dragons, Fallout Boys, Evanescence, Creed, Twenty-One Pilots, Florida-Georgia Line, Pentatonix, Skillet, Rammstein, Psy, and sooo many others. I can't list them all, but there's like 400+ bands that I've written for in the past. (If anyone would like some subject written about let me know!)
2017 - Forevera - offer assistance and guidance to the Presidents of the United States. My emergency call phrase in the news is 'Hillary Clinton's Server'. I can't believe some ******* wanted to 'wipe' me. Grr.
2017 - Forevera - continue to make my line of cosmetics and beauty products, walk 2 miles daily.
2021 - 2026 - pay off those loans and college debts, apply for passport & have children, apply for copyrights on past written works, expecting more than a few 'lyrical battle lawsuits' on this one.
2024 - apply to study at a place preferably locally that teaches a bachelor's or master's degree in Business Analytics.
2024 - 2034 Study my ass off + write lyrics only when super-inspired, maintain yearly book releases.
2034 - apply to Geneva University in Switzerland
-Learn French, Russian, Korean, and Farsi

I think that's all of it. You know looking at it, it's almost your typical D&D Bard.

Thank you Hextor, I forgot.

I think I've solidified my position about LK, and after 14 years it's past time to say goodbye, there's just too many breaking points, one or two in a relationship are okay, but I'm up to about six of them now.

Aww screw it I keep coming back here and checking. Old Habits die hard I'm giving up my Starcraft gaming time for Reluctant Heroes. Just give me a pre-rolled character sheet for Investigator I don't have any books for it. - I'll merge my thinking about my next move time with my daily 2 mile walk time.

Today I'm writing 'Angels' & 'Reluctant Killer' & 'Paper Frogs' for Imagine Dragons. 09/02

Farsi. Iran is the country. The people and culture are Persian. The language is Farsi. They don't like it when it gets mixed up. Just FYI.

So over in the Knaves of Nijmegin thread, Critias' murderous spree has been thwarted (briefly, ha) by a Sanctuary spell, after failing a Willpower save. This got me thinking about how Sanctuary works, because I got a bit stuck trying to write the post where Critias is trying to kill this Drow but can't because of the spell. There doesn't seem to be anything much online about it beyond the mechanics ("you ward a creature within range against attack"). How do people normally play Sanctuary - do you see it as a physical barrier, or a psychological one? I played it as Critias essentially losing the ability to physically control his sword arm - he still wanted to kill the Drow, his sword arm just wouldn't obey him. But it could equally work along the lines of fear, or charm, or a physical barrier slowing down his sword strike. Anyone ever thought about this?

I had always played it as more of a magical barrier, not a physical. Maybe that it acts as a physical. I would stay away from aligning it with charm and the like as its not a mind-affecting spell. It's basically as if the Gods are making you roll a natural 1 no matter what. So any creature protected is literally unassailable. A physical barrier I see as something that can be overcome. I would RP it as a nat 1 no matter how hard you try. This would fall more in line with the whole divine intervention that I feel is in line with the spell. Mage armor and Shield spells are more akin to a physical barrier, despite their magical beginnings.

Another option would be to RP it like a shield spell, but it's divine in nature. Again Mage Armor and Shield just boost your AC, whereas Sanctuary actually negates the incoming attack. Perhaps a bubble of divine energy for the determined length of time?

Thanks for your thoughts, Hextor! So I couldn't find anything definitive on it saying whether it was or wasn't mind-affecting, but I agree that fear and charm don't really make sense given there are other spells for that. And a physical shield seemed not quite right either. RPing it as a nat 1 brought on by divine intervention sounds about right, actually - I hadn't really thought of it in that way. Thanks!

Of course. And if it WERE mind-affecting, it would be mentioned. Since it isn't listed as such, it's a sure bet that it's not.

Sanctuary is a deific spell, coming from a deity, but not necessarily divine. I used to think this spell caused a person to simply choose another target, but that theory proved worthy only on a crowded battlefield because if the only target to attack was under the Sanctuary spell, it wouldn't work under that theory. It's not mind affecting or a charm, more a deific enchantment that weakens the attackers resolves to continue with hostilities or weakens their limbs so they are unable to attack. After numerous, vociferous and skilled debate, those are the conclusions I have come to about the workings of this particularly spell. The caster's deity has given them protection from harm, how that plays out or is explained by the DM and players is part of that particular story. I tend to have the effects of the spell the same, but the explanation different in the game play. For example a priest of Thor casts this spell and his foes can't hit him because when they try, they become to weak to even lift their weapons while a priest of Dionysus would cause the attackers to become more interested in drinking and eating than fighting and leave off to go do that, or stop to think about it anyway. Different deities would create different reactions, in Crit's case, sheer force or a freezing of the muscles is a clue as to which deity granted the spell. It most certainly wasn't Lolth. I hope that makes sense, let me know what everyone thinks.

New problem: my PC is dead, and posting here from my phone is a hassle. Razzie has permission to count Yggdra as passed out drunk for a few posts until we get to the town lol. I'll have my PC functional in a couple days.

We can move that thread along, I will make certain to have Yggdra doing something more constructive than passing out drunk but that will also keep her away from the others for the time being, like helping gather errant mules......

Sanctuary, I always imagine a green double circle with a star rune in the center for some reason. I don't picture a magical barrier more like Sanctuary is a holy ground spell. Like you don't fight in Church kind of thing a peacefulness settles around you.

Sorry for being a bit intense. When you have your entire life re-affirmed 5x daily on the news it gets a bit fun.
