Assuming this is 5E, I'll just choose Druid spells that don't give saving throws or require spell attacks and suffer no drawbacks whatsoever. I'll just pick something agile to beast shape into when I need to not fall clumsily on my face.
>>44615136 I would too if my best friend was Asami. I mean, jesus just look at her.
>>44614804 Watching a five-inch-tall fairy pick up a grown man and throw him through a window tends to raise some deep philosophical questions. Questions like "why am I here" and "what sort of god allows this to happen"
>>44616339 >human cleric >17 str >5 dex >5 con >15 int >8 wis >5 cha Every day, I flop my splintering body from my bed and collapse to the floor before dragging myself slowly across the ground towards the altar. My bones, long ago broken from both their frailty and my ineptitude, tear gouges in my flesh as I hold them in something approximating shape through muscle compression alone. After two grueling hours, I have successfully traveled a hundred feet and navigated the heaps of garbage and rotten fruit with which the townsfolk pelt my house each night. And there at last, as I do every day, I repeat the sacred mantra "Please, God, let me die."
>>44616695 >>44616655 You motherfuckers ain't seriously going to deny that Asami watching Korra's body while she was meditating in Zhao-fu is not a direct fucking refernce to Katara doing the same for Aang?
>>44616660 Not sure where that other quote came from.
>2 fucking str >18 dex >11 con >11 int >18 wis >15 cha >fairy paladin You know, this is actually a pretty great statline for a paladin except for 2 FUCKING STRENGTH. Holy shit do I even HAVE muscles? I can hardly lift a flower to frolic with how the fuck am I supposed to smite shit. I mean, fairies aren't exactly beefy and I could use a rapier or something to take advantage of that dex but holy fuck, even shanking a bitch takes some oomph. I might as well tickle the fuckers to death.

>>44623427 Fate is basically a goal that the player has set for their character. Whenever they pursue that goal despite risk to themselves and those they care for, they gain a Destiny die. which is the engine the game runs on since you can only activate your skills by spending destiny dice.
>>44623479 It's the house system for Free Leauge Publishing who together with Modiphius released Mutant: Year Zero. Though the specific game im refering to is Sulphurwinter, which has yet to be translated.
Look here under "In english" for a quickstart guide which summs it up.
>>44623395 A bane is your character's achilles heel. Their one, tragic character flaw which undercuts them. A player can choose to use their bane in a situation to automatically fail a conflict and take the consequences (either setbacks, damage or some other sort of fallout) or the GM can suggest a trigger of the bane for their own reasons. Whenever the bane is triggered the player gains a destiny die for later conflicts.
From Bryan's tumblr (http://bryankonietzko.tumblr.com/post/105916338157/korrasami-is-canon-you-can-celebrate-it-embrace)
>As we wrote Book 1, before the audience had ever laid eyes on Korra and Asami, it was an idea I would kick around the writers’ room.
> we focused on developing Korra and Asami’s relationship. Originally, it was primarily intended to be a strong friendship. Frankly, we wanted to set most of the romance business aside for the last two seasons.
>So we alluded to it throughout the second half of the series, working in the idea that their trajectory could be heading towards a romance.
>But this particular decision wasn’t only done for us. We did it for all our queer friends, family, and colleagues. It is long overdue that our media (including children’s media) stops treating non-heterosexual people as nonexistent
He makes it pretty clear it was a pet idea which blossomed from his personal politics rather than any longstanding plan or attempt at concrete development.
> Asami was a duplicitous spy when Mike and I first conceived her character. Then we liked her too much so we reworked the story to keep her in the dark regarding her father’s villainous activities.
Hmm, Asami was one of the better characters but this would have been a far better way to write her in. Would have given her her own arc in the series, not to mention much more personality than simply sad rich girl.
>>44625960 He also says they didn't actually include anything until book 4 when they asked Nick for permission to include it. So they can't have alluded to anything romantic before then because they themselves thought they couldn't do it.
I honestly really respected the hell out of Bryke until this post. I thought, and still think, they were ingenious writers who gave us a show and a world brimming with personality well beyond what you can normally expect from kid-oriented entertainment.
But then Bryan made this incredibly smug post brimming with cishet guilt and patting himself on the back for having the balls to make two cartoon characters bisexuals, which was a little disappointing.
Then when Star Wars came out he made another lengthy post about how awesome Rey was and how similar she was to Korra. Now I'm a minority on 4chan: I really liked Rey. Which is why I don't want to see her act anything like Korra.
Mike is a little more low-key though.
It's just a shame to see people you admire act so obnoxious.
>>44625960 The thing about Korra and Asami's relationship is, if you ignore the last 5 minutes of the last episode, there's about as much evidence for it as there is for, say, the Zuko/Katara pairing. All the evidence is just people reading motivations into actions because they're trying to justify their fanfic pairing. And that's what Korra/Asami feels like. Bryan was just lucky enough to be one of the showrunners for Korra so he could put his fanfic pairing in the show.
And what's sad is that I think a Korra/Asami relationship could have been really good if it had actually been written into the show. Korra was really emotionally vulnerable after S3 and Asami was pretty much the first person she opened up to after that. Things could have easily crossed the boundry from a close friendship to something more at that point. At the very least I don't think it could've hurt S4.
>>44626191 I used to admire them, until LoK ended. After that i want nothing from them ever again. So i'm glad i didn't see anything starwars related. They've (Bryke and the fans) actually managed to make me cringe at any homosexual or women empowering attempts because it just feels like pandering now.
Also yeah outside of Mikes own blogpost, he seems to just stay hidden.
>They've (Bryke and the fans) actually managed to make me cringe at any homosexual or women empowering attempts because it just feels like pandering now.
To be fair, the fans are far, far more annoying than Bryke could ever be, because at least Bryan and Mike are more intelligent, less visible, and actually creative.
Bryan's also working on some fantasy graphic novel right now about kangaroo people. It seems free of furryshit, and the art he's shared for it is heart-breakingly beautiful so at the very least I might thumb through it if I see it at Barnes and Noble or something.
>>44626402 To me Bryan is insufferable because he seems to really enjoy the praise they're getting and it feels like he is encouraging the fans to be as annoying as they are. Though i agree the fans are the worst part.
Threadworlds just seems like a repeat of the "women are just as capable" trope he seems to have been including since forever. There's nothing wrong with the view, i even agree with it, but it just sounds like it is going to be a driving point which is annoying to me, because it will feel forced that everyone everywhere is going to have something against the protag.
> because it will feel forced that everyone everywhere is going to have something against the protag.
This is probably my greatest fear. Unlike the shows, Bryan has absolute control over this work since he's the only one involved with it. I don't know how that's going to manifest, because to be frank beyond a few implications we don't really know what stuff in the shows was his idea, Mike's idea, or someone else's idea. For that reason, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he's interested in things other than gay cartoon characters and conflicts that boil down to "you can't do X because you're a girl!"
I call bullshit on that. First, I have a hard time someone could be such close friends with someone as liberal as Bryan if they have politics like that. Second, Mike hasn't ever demonstrated really any kind of politics outside of agreeing with Bryan that Korrasami was a good thing, though granted he doesn't' really say much about anything.
I don't doubt he's at least a little more conservative than Bryan, who has explicitly stated he's interested in social justice. But that could mean anything from him being an actual Nazi to simply being less inclined to discuss his politics with people. Given the nature of the shows he's worked on, I doubt it's the former.
I could buy him as something of a libertarian though. Large governments are almost always shown to be problematic in both shows.
>I might check out the Korra comics
Don't. Those comics are written by fans, with basically no oversight from the showwriters so they're completely inconsistent. I read the first AtLA comic and it was garbage, featuring Aang going into Avatar Tard Rage mode because Zuko grabbed Katara's arm kinda hard even though the entire point of the last season was he had moved past that.
I also hear they're making Zuko/Prince Wu a canon relationship in the comics because again, they're written by fans.
>>44626748 Well it is /co/ so obviously take a shitload of salt with it. But it has to do with his new thing "geniuses" where special people are held back from creating art by society. And also how the show treated Suyin as a good person, even though she only seemed to look out for herself and her family.
Though i agree, he is probably more libertarian.
>Korra comics I meant the upcoming ones. The ATLA comics are pretty standalone and have nothing to do with Bryke, but the Korra ones are supposedly written by Mike and drawn by a fangirl.
>>44626943 She's attractive and seems to be able to get people to do what she asks of them in spite of any logic, reason or forethought.
Which just makes it more funny when they know better but follow her anyway because she looks like she knows what she's doing when all past experience says she's lucky to be able to clothe herself every morning.
I could buy the idea of Aang having these people following him around. He had this sort of jovial charisma that made it hard to dislike him and despite his lighthearted attitude he demonstrates competency constantly. Even then though, people having to warm up to him (like Sokka) was the subject of several plot points.
But everyone just kind of accepted Korra at face value even though she was immensely abrasive and confrontational, without even getting into her competency or lack thereof as a leader. Even Asami was angrier when Mako than with her when Korra straight up kissed her boyfriend. By Season 4 she has scores of people willing to die for her even though by all rights those bridges should have been burned by Season 2.
