OK, so we can agree that it's at least possible to split the taking out the Emperor part from the fixing the pattern part.

Well the way I see it there's at least four legs to the trip:
1) Arthus City -> Sabeleum
2) Sabeleum -> "The Front"
3) "The Front" -> "The Trenches"
4) "The Trenches" -> "The Cave System"

I imagine 2 is probably the hardest step on the way there. On the way back, 4 is probably the hardest, as they have a bunch of guards and they're pointed in the right direction.

Hey, if you're fast enough you might be able to avoid the penalty of shapeshifting.

Sorry to hear about troubles in your life. Admittedly I enjoy arguing, so it doesn't really bother me that much.

I edited my post in the OC to have Vassarious try and get moving...

That's on aircraft.



In an elemental form optimized for flying...You can get at least half the speed of a jet liner, I'd think. You could also probably hitch a ride on a jet liner.

I understand how that is. Good luck with whatever is stressing you.

A GM meta question:


This is a point at which Holomaximus could reasonably take over a lot of the planning. I do want to preserve player agency though, and I'm also uncertain how much of maximus's innate strategic genius is preserved in the copy.



Thoughts on the way you want the game to go?

I'm fine with holo-Maximus taking care of the detailed planning with the resistance's help once they have settled on the timing of the attack. they are far more familiar with the strategic situation than Vassarious is. We could push the time out to create a better planning buffer, but that would also increase the possibility of a leak, so V is against pushing it too far out.

Vassarious want to steer them more towards chaos and distraction than death and destruction and minimize the loss of life if possible but understands that some sacrifice is inevitable.

Well if you mean the planning of the military attack then that's fine. If you mean, the planning of the temple infiltration/reverse sabotage, then not so much.

Ok, We'll run things that way then.

That was the suggested rate for wildcards (and thus other "per-session" traits like destiny) to refresh. I was hoping the story would break into natural breaks of about that size... but it isn't happening. So lets call it 120 posts. You certainly have your points at the moment.
