So yeah...good idea.
Rocket Man is finally healthy enough to make sense, but I'm not sure I'm following the clue/hint/prod. Can you hit me up on FB? My box is almost full here.

Found while poking around my things, still trying to engineer/reverse engineer a working Corp HP thing.

https://maroon-ed.livejournal.com/157923.html

I wish I could tag on here, because this one's for Sylver.

--nonbumpiness--I am such a fantastic dork. Corp HP are in fact the variant rules from the GM guide, and it goes like this:
Quote:
Body hits are equal to Total Forces + Corporeal Forces + Strength. Vessels and Toughness both add 5 Body hits per level. Celestials and humans fall unconscious at 0 Body hits, and die after taking additional hits equal to their (vessel level or Toughness) + Corporeal Forces + Strength.
All PC angels have a vessel level of 3 unless they've bought up from that. Humans...I'll edit this inaminnit. --Edit-- Humans, functional vessel level one, putting Cameron and Glen's HP's in the low teens, as opposed to the single digits they'd have otherwise.

XP inaminnit, once I remember where the cost chart is.

--edit-- This is In Nomine, multiplied by my truly dreadful filing system. Chart? Ha! How does 8 CP strike everyone? You all could use an upgrade, right?
And much thanks to ladyarcana for putting crunchiness on her character sheets, so I have some sense of how seldom I've given out said points.

I am waiting for the GM to give me whatever info we are waiting for. I sort of know what Sunae will attempt, but I am not sure if there is anything else that needs to be done yet.

<EDIT>

Nevermind. I'll put my move in

Then she works to control the blessed thing.

Sunae grew up on a farm and she has worked with horses. She knows that she has to show it that she is not afraid and that she is unbreakable. But Sunae is a Soldier of Divine Fire. She does not break.

"Whoa!"

If worse comes to worse, Sunae will not hesitate to bring out Purifying Flame and cut these two spirits down.
You sure her Agility can cash that check? I'll break out the cards tomorrow, say in ten or twelve hours, and we'll see. But the difficulty level of getting up after falling down on a bucking car, while wearing heels, and then standing on one leg and kicking a guy with the other while on same bucking car...the Target Number on that has to be astronomical!

She will certainly try, but I will admit I forgot she had fallen. Sorry about that. Let me edit

Does she have any Essence she can burn to up her chances?

Given the myth that Kane's Uncommon Sense brought to mind, is there anything that his Malakite of Creation combat ability can turn into a suitable "thrown thunderbolt" to bring down this rogue charioteer? (Or at least turn it onto its back like a turtle, so that it can't endanger anyone else? )

I'm open to suggestions. You have a large crowd, a DJ booth, presumably a stage, tents some of which have basic mechanics' tools in them, and lots of cars.
Hmmmmm.

Not ignoring you...well, I am, sort of. I have company over for a couple days.

Hmmmmm.
Are there any hoses or other cleaning gear nearby? A hose would be best, since it could be an improvised lariat; otherwise he's looking for the longest pole available.
