Respect Ultimate Thor (Marvel, Earth 1610)

Respect Ultimate Thor

In times like this, there is nothing to do but laugh and call down the storm. And when you bleed, laugh even more. Then go right up to the biggest, meanest monster you can find...and hit it with a hammer until it falls. Or until the next thing you see is Valhalla. In other words, my advice...is to go be a Thor.
History: Thorlief Golmen, or Thor, was a Norwegian psychiatric nurse who seemingly suffered a psychotic breakdown when he was 29. Thor became convinced he was truly the Norse god of lightning sent to earth to save it in its direst hour of need, and his mental instability and radical left wing politics greatly concerned the Norwegian government. Since the government had already invested billions of dollars attuning their super soldier technology to Thor's biology they allowed him to take to the world stage as the superhero Thor. Armed with a hammer and harness that granted him immense strength and durability and the powers of flight, lightning control, and teleportation Thor quickly established himself as one of the most powerful superhumans on the planet and he soon became an ally of the American super team the Ultimates.
Although others were highly skeptical of Thor's claims of godhood, Thor eventually proved his divinity as a true son of Asgard and exposed his evil brother Loki's attempts to inveigle Thor's true origin. Thor truly was a god, chosen to wield the hammer Mjolnir, and sent by Odin to save the world. Although Thor's godhood would eventually be stripped from him by The Maker he soon after recreated his powers through technological means, eventually sacrificing himself to save the entirety of his world from the threat of Galactus.

2018.04.05 16:44 blackbenetavo Aiel (Wheel of Time) vs. Wickans (Malazan BotF)

Wheel of Time's most famous no-cavalry warriors vs. Malazan Book of the Fallen's most famous mounted fighters.
The Arena
A grassland savannah. Very gently rolling land with waist-high grasses.
The two armies start 10 miles apart. They don't know where the other army is, but they do know an enemy army is in the area; they must use their respective scouts to find them.
Each army is unfamiliar with the capabilities of the other.
Each side gets 2000 warriors and 2 magic-users.
The Aiel
No dedicated respect threads, but here's a wiki entry.
Spear-wielding desert warriors famous for their fighting skill, speed, endurance, and being vicious fighters.
Tactical Considerations
They have no cavalry, but Aiel are said to be able to run down a man on horseback over short distances.
Infamous for their skill at hiding unseen, even in terrain that seems to have perfect visibility.
Typical Aiel are armed with three spears, a buckler, and a horn bow. Generally don't wear armor.
Fighting Reputation
Made up of twelve clans. Notably, just four united clans were able to run roughshod over an entire continent's worth of allied armies from multiple nations.
Their homeland, the Aiel Waste, is known by Trollocs (evil, huge animal/man hybrid monsters) as "the Dying Ground," and these monsters have to be whipped and driven onward by force to get them to enter and face the Aiel.
Magic Reinforcement
The Aiel have channelers, known as Wise Women, who can do all the things WoT channelers can do. Historically, iirc, they didn't join in fighting, Aiel vs. Aiel, but they routinely aided in battle later on in the series. They'll have this magic support in this fight.
Distribution of Forces
The Aiel in this fight will consist of 2,000 Taardad Aiel of mixed fighting societies, led by their clan chief Rhuarc, supported in battle with channeling by two Wise Ones, Amys and Aviendha.
The Wickans
No dedicated respect threads, but here's a wiki entry.
Plains warriors known for their expert horsemanship. Have been characterized as the best mounted horse warriors in the world.
Tactical Considerations
Wickan children rode horses before they could walk. They practiced charging with spears and standing upon their horses' backs in acrobatic feats.
In war, they wore spiked skull caps, leather armor with some iron scale. Typically armed with lances, horn bows, and long knives.
Fighting Reputation
Famously, the Wickans participated in escorting tens of thousands of refugees safely across an entire continent while being constantly attacked. This led to their extinction but they kept their charges safe.
This march begame so famous it was known as the Chain of Dogs, and the Wickan's combat performance was so great that it led a different tribal people to dedicate themselves as a war cult worshipping the Wickans' martial prowess.
Magic Reinforcement
The Wickans had warlocks. This is general Malazan magic. The warlocks' magic was a little bit more spirit-based, but they were in a similar ballpark in terms of capability.
Distribution of Forces
The Wickans in this fight will consist of 2000 Wickans of the Crow clan, pre-Chain of Dogs. They are led by Coltaine. They are supported magically by the warlock twins Nil and Nether. (They don't have any Malazan Moranth munitions)
Who Would Win?

Superman #20: New Year, New Threats (Warworld, I)

<< < >
Author: MajorParadox
Book: Superman
Event: Warworld
Arc: Challenges
Set: 20

The Ring

Batman pulled himself out of the Batmobile, exhaling slowly. It had been a long night. Alfred hated when he stayed out so late, but there was work to be done. The city needed Batman.
As he rode the elevator up, Bruce heard voices from the Roost. Alfred and... What was he doing there?
“Clark,” he greeted as the door opened to find the man in his Superman uniform. He was sitting beside Alfred, the two enjoying some of his strange British cookies with milk. “I thought you only played Santa on Christmas.”
“Hi, Bruce,” Clark said, standing up, still chewing the last bite. “I wanted to talk to you about something. You weren’t back yet, but Alfred suggested I wait.”
“Let me give you two some privacy,” said Alfred, standing up. “I shall box up the rest of the biscuits for you and Lois,” he added as he reached the door.
“What can I help you with?” asked Bruce, pulling his mask off and dropping into the chair by the main computer.
Clark reached behind his cape and pulled out a lead box. “I want you to have something.”
“Lex Luthor’s kryptonite ring.”
Clark smiled. Bruce was such a showoff. It would probably kill him to act surprised.
Bruce smirked “I assume you’re not proposing.”
Clark’s smile widened. “Well, not to you...”
“Oh,” said Bruce. “Congratulations.”
Something he didn’t know, that was new.
“Anyway,” Clark explained. “The kryptonite crystals that powered Kara’s ship and mine are in our fortresses. And the synthetic kryptonite Luthor produced is in custody in S.T.A.R. Labs. This is the only other known piece on Earth, and it’s legit, not watered down. I want you to have it.”
“So, in a way, you are proposing,” said Bruce. “You want a backup plan. Accountability in case anything ever happens to you.”
There was the know-it-all again.
Bruce nodded. “I accept your proposal.”
“Speaking of proposals,” Clark returned to his smile. “It’s happening at the New Years party… It’s probably happening… Maybe I should wait until we’re alone. Anyway, I know you RSVP’d ‘no’, but we’d still love to have you if you can make it.”
“It still amazes me how confident you can be as Superman,” Bruce said, “while still being a scared kid from Smallville who likes cookies.”
“Who doesn’t like cookies?”
“You got me there. But I can’t make it, Clark. Don’t worry, though. She’s going to say yes.”

New Years Eve

“This is really nice, Clark,” said Martha as her son walked her and Jonathan down the hallway of his new apartment building.
Clark laughed. “We don’t live in the halls,” he said. “Wait until you see the balcony. We have an amazing view of the city.”
“Still doesn’t beat the stars on a clear night in Smallville, right?” said Jonathan.
“Of course not,” Clark answered. “Nothing beats the farm.”
“So,” Martha spoke softly as the three almost reached the apartment door. “You’re doing it tonight, right? You have the ring I sent you?”
“I think so,” Clark smiled, digging around in his pocket. He pulled out a small, black box, slowly popping it open to reveal a sparkly engagement ring.
“It’s perfect,” said Martha, her face beaming. “It was my mother’s ring before me and her mother’s before her. I can’t think of anyone more deserving than Lois to receive it next.”
The door to the apartment swung open just after Clark dropped the ring back into his pocket. “Oh, you’re here,” Lois greeted them.
Martha pulled her in for a hug. “We were just talking about you. Great to see you, Lois.”
“You too, Martha. I’m glad your flight wasn’t delayed much later or you would have missed the new year.”
“We wouldn’t miss tonight for the world,” said Jonathan, embracing her next.
“Thanks, Mr. Kent.” Lois smiled.
“Please, call me Jonathan.”
“OK, Jonathan,” Lois nodded, motioning inside. “Come on in, make yourself at home.”
The four entered the apartment, several other guests waved and nodded.
“Aunt Martha, Uncle Jon!” Kara called, running over to deliver more hugs. Two young men stood behind her. “Oh, these are my friends from school: Dick and Winn.”
“Nice to meet you,” said Dick.
“Howdy,” said Winn.
Howdy? Really?” Dick teased softly, getting a shrug in return.
“This is your cousin?” said Jimmy, patting Clark on the back. “Nice to meet you, Karen, I’m Jimmy Olsen. Kind of a big deal at the Daily Planet. You know, I took the first ever pictures of Superman.”
“He’s right,” said Clark. “And they were pretty good.” He continued the introductions. “You remember Pete and Lana, right?”
“Of course,” said Jonathan. “Glad you two could make it.”
“Nice to see you two again,” said Lana.
Pete nodded in agreement. “Seems like just yesterday we’d all hang out on the farm together after school.”
“Those were the days,” said Martha. “But we all grow up, don’t we? We love your campaign commercials, Lana. You’ll make a great congresswoman.”
“Hello hello,” said Chloe entering the door behind the Kents. Beside her was a young girl. “Look who I found downstairs.”
“Lucy, you made it,” said Lois.
“We were just introducing everyone,” said Clark, waving. “Everyone, Lucy is Lois’s sister.” He looked toward Kara and her friends. “She goes to Gotham U too, you must know each other.”
“Actually, I don’t think we’ve met,” said Kara, extending her hand. “I’m Karen, Clark’s cousin.”
“Clark,” teased Chloe. “Not everywhere is like Smallville. You’d think you would have figured that out by now, living in the big city.”
“Hey Lucy,” said Winn.
The girl waved.
“We have English together,” he stated after some inquisitive looks. “It’s a small class.”
Clark held back a laugh and circled the room with his finger. “Jonathan and Martha Kent, Chloe Sullivan, Lucy Lane, Karen Starr, Dick Grayson, Winn Schott, Jimmy Olsen, Lana Lang and Pete Ross, Perry and Alice White, Ron Troupe, Hal Jordan and Carol Ferris, and last, but not least, Detective John Jones and his daughter Annabeth.”
“And don’t forget Lois Lane and Clark Kent,” Chloe added, pointing out their hosts.
Perry lifted his glass. “Here here!” he yelled, prompting others to lift their drinks too.
“While I have your attention,” Clark added, noticing all the faces on him.
Just pretend you’re Superman, he thought. “Wait a minute…
“Uh, just, everyone enjoy yourselves and happy New Year!”
=== ==\§/== ===
“So,” said Hal, standing with J’onn, Clark, and Lois. “Bruce couldn’t take a night off to socialize?”
“Bruce Wayne?” Perry asked, walking over to the group with Ron Troupe.
“Not sure why you bothered inviting him,” said Ron. “Billionaire playboy like that must have much better ways of ringing in the new year. How do you even know him?”
“It didn’t hurt to ask,” said Lois. “Clark and Bruce met back when he wrote that story on the kidnapped girl in Gotham.”
Lois was great at these things. A delicate moment of Clark and Superman’s worlds colliding, but she didn’t skip a beat.
“Lily Parker,” Clark added. “Bruce took her into his orphanage, and we’ve been close ever since I interviewed him for my blog. Oh, and good news: Lily was recently adopted, just in time for Christmas.”
“That is a fantastic gift,” said J’onn, “The holidays are the perfect time to welcome a new face into the family.” J’onn smiled to his own adopted daughter, who stood -containing her excitement- beside him.
“She’s a lucky girl,” said Lois. “Maybe she wasn’t at the start, but she’s fortunate there are good people willing to help others in their time of need.” She glanced toward Clark, giving him a smile.
Clark fiddled with the box in his pocket. “Lois,” he said, the group’s eyes awaiting his next words. “Can we talk outside for a bit?”
“Sure,” she said, moving toward the closet. “Let me just get our coats.”
As Lois walked toward the closet, Martha moved toward her son, eyes wide. “Is this it?” she whispered.
“Yeah,” Clark nodded, as his mom took him in for a hug.
“Don’t take too long out there,” said Martha as Lois and Clark exited toward the balcony. “It’s almost midnight!”
“Your mom seems extra happy tonight,” said Lois as the door closed behind them.
The night was clear, the stars overlooking the tall buildings of Metropolis were unusually visible for the city. Clark held Lois tight. “Warm enough?” he asked.
“I’m fine, Clark,” she answered. “What’s so important we had to be alone?”
“Lois,” he started, his hand still in his pocket. “You’re one of the good people.”
“Where are you going with this, Smallville?”
“When we were kids, I accidentally made a fool of myself and you stood up for me.”
“And then I stole your cake,” Lois added.
“Yeah, you did, but I didn’t mind.”
“We’ve gotten so close this past year, but I feel like we’ve been together forever. And-”
“Clark, stop.”
“I-, what?”
Lois grabbed his hand. “You’re really going to do this outside when we have friends and family right inside?” She pulled Clark back inside, drawing looks from the party. “Can I have everyone’s attention? Clark wants to say a few words.”
Wow, thought Clark. How did she do it? Putting him on the spot like that seemed so mean, but it somehow felt more like a loving gesture. Maybe she just knew him too well. Knew he needed an extra push.
“I, uh-” Clark started, looking at everyone awaiting what he had to say. He turned to Lois. “We’ve been through so much together, Lois. I know you so well and you know me, maybe better than I know myself. And, well...”
Lois reached into Clark’s pocket and pulled out the ring box, opening it up. “And…?”
“And… will you marry me?”
“Of course,” she smiled, pulling Clark in for a kiss as everyone cheered.
“It’s almost midnight!” Lana announced.
Jimmy flipped on the TV to GBS where Cat Grant was counting down. She put on a happy face, but it was obvious there was conflict behind her eyes. After all, she had been dating Lex Luthor for some time before his recent arrest.
“Nineteen!” she called.
“We’re so happy for you two,” said Martha, pulling Lois and Clark into a hug and creating an opening for Jonathan who joined in.
“And great timing,” Jonathan added.
“Ten!”
“Nine!”
“Eight!”
“Seven!”
“Six!”
“Five!”
“Four!”
“Three!”
“Two!”
“One!”
Happy New Year!
Clark pulled his new fiancée close, kissing her into the new year. As the kiss broke, they looked into each other’s eyes and everything felt right.
“I- I have to go,” said Kara, rushing passed Winn toward the door.
“What just happened?” Dick asked him. “Did you just kiss her?”
“No,” said Winn, trying his best to avoid his eyes. “OK, yes.”
“Huh,” Dick replied, bemused. “I guess that officially means I’m the third wheel.”

Hard Landing

“Thanks for coming, guys,” said Clark as Lana pulled the door open.
“It was fun,” said Pete, shaking his childhood friend’s hand.
Lana smiled. “We’re really happy for you guys, Clark,” she said.
“Yeah,” Pete added. “You’re lucky to have her, Clark.” A sly wink. “Her, on the other hand, not so lucky.”
“Gee, thanks,” said Clark, laughing as he closed the door. He moved back into the apartment to see J’onn picking up plates. He, Annabeth, Hal, Carol, and Clark’s parents were the only ones left.
“Oh hey, you don’t have to help,” said Clark.
“I don’t mind,” he replied. “I always-” J’onn stopped as he noticed Clark’s attention wavered. “What is it?”
Lois and Clark’s phones buzzed. “Clark,” said Lois, tilting the display toward him.
*NEWS ALERT* - Unidentified flying object landed in Suicide Slum
=== ==\§/== ===
Superman, Green Lantern, and Martian Manhunter flew across Metropolis.
“I can’t see inside, but it doesn’t appear to be Kryptonian,” said Clark, looking ahead to the landing site.
“There are countless other planets it could have originated from,” said Hal. “I’ll run a scan on its identification tag, but even then it could be commandeered.”
“Yeah, but I’ve only seen Kryptonian spaceships before. How did it go unnoticed-? Wait a minute,” Clark slowed.
J’onn nodded. “I hear them too, their thoughts are panicked.”
“There’s someone at the Ace of Clubs causing a commotion. He looks alien. Maybe from the ship? You two continue on and I’ll check it out.” Clark veered off toward the bar.
“Whaddya s’poosed ta be, bub, some kinda vampire?” Except for some drunken patrons in the back, Bibbo and the alien were the only ones who hadn’t fled the bar.
The alien did seem vampire-like. Ghost-white skin, sharp teeth, and some black facial tattoos… unless they were natural. Was there a vampire planet out there?
“What’s a vampire?” the alien asked, taking a swig from his beer mug.
“Do ya drink blood?” Bibbo asked.
“... And I thought I was drunk.”
Bibbo laughed. “Hey, it’s New Years’ Eve, bub. Kinda wha’cha do.”
“You get drunk to celebrate traveling around the sun? And the name’s not bub, it’s Lobo. And I could use another.”
“We also drink to cel’brate just ‘bout anything else too.” Bibbo dropped a fresh beer on the bar.
“This planet’s not as bad as it seems.”
“It really isn’t,” Clark said from the door. “May I ask what you’re doing here?”
“Sooperman!” yelled Bibbo, running over to greet him into a giant bear hug.
Lobo turned around, beer in his hand. “Superman, huh? Small planet, I’m actually here looking for you.”
Clark broke the hug with Bibbo and patted him on the shoulder. “You’re looking for me?” he asked, moving closer. “Who are you?”
“Me?” the alien asked, standing up. “I’m Lobo, the Main Man. And the Main Man has a job to do.” He swung his leg around, kicking Clark through the door. “But right now, I’m enjoying this drink.”
“Lobo,” Clark said from the door. “Would you care to step outside?”
The alien picked up his glass and slurped the rest of the beer. “Drinkin’ and fightin’,” he said, rushing toward the door. “My favorite.”
Clark reached out to grab Lobo before he could get rammed, but the momentum took both of them out into the street. Lobo threw an uppercut, knocking Superman back and followed it up with another kick to his stomach. Another punch and he was flying.
“Are you sure you’re the right Superman?” asked Lobo. “Maybe I need to ask around a bit more.”
“I’m the only one as far as I know,” Clark said, rushing back with a punch of his own to Lobo’s face.
“Nice hit,” he said, grabbing Clark’s arm and swinging him around until he hit the wall of the Ace of Clubs. “Still not impressed.”
Whoever this guy was, he was strong. Maybe stronger than Clark.
A burst of freeze breath knocked Lobo back and Clark followed it up with a punch, knocking him into the road. He rushed forward, letting another punch fly, sending Lobo crashing into the roof of the building across the street.
“Way ta go, Sooperman!” yelled Bibbo from the door.
Lobo jumped back down, grabbing Superman by the chest and digging his knee into the hero’s stomach. “Rooting for him?” he asked Bibbo. “I thought we were friends!”
“Yer cool and all,” Bibbo explained. “But Sooperman is da best!”
Clark hovered up and dropped an elbow until Lobo’s skull, following it up with a kick to his chest. He wrapped himself around the alien’s arms, restraining him. “Who sent you to attack me?” he asked.
“Attack you?” Lobo laughed, stretching his arms apart. “I’m here to invite you.” He threw a punch, but Clark quickly blocked it.
“Invite me where?”
“To a party,” Lobo shrugged, dropping a device onto the ground. A hologram appeared of some other alien. “Let me know when you’re ready to leave,” Lobo added as he stepped back into the bar. “Another beer, Bibbo.”
“Kal-El, Superman of Earth,” the alien hologram spoke. “You have been selected to represent your planet in the Games.”
“What are the-”
“The Games are the galaxy’s most prestigious events, pitting the champions of worlds against each other for the entertainment of the elite.”
“Why should-”
“It is a tradition that has spanned across countless worlds.”
Clark got the feeling the message wasn’t interactive.
“Well, any questions?”
Or maybe it was.
“I refuse to participate.”
“Glad to hear it,” the hologram continued. “Please accompany your escort to Warworld where you will be inducted...”
“What?” Clark interrupted, the hologram not stopping. “I said I refuse!”
“Hey, you’re not as lame as I thought,” said Lobo, from the Ace of Clubs door, a beer in his hand. “You’d rather take on Warworld itself than go be a spectacle, huh?”
“What do you mean ‘take on Warworld’?”
“Isn’t it obvious? You refuse, Warworld will come here to this planet. They’re not called ‘Warworld’ for nothing.”
Clark moved closer. “Tell me more.”

Goodbyes

“Superman is still nowhere in sight,” Lois recorded into her phone. “Meanwhile Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter are fighting some Xena-looking women that came out of the mysterious spaceship.”
Jimmy stood beside Lois, taking continuous shots of the fight before them. “Think we can get closer?” he asked, looking for a better vantage spot without getting in the way.
“Just a moment, Jimmy,” said Superman landing behind the two.
“Superman!” Lois called. “Where have you been?”
“It’s a bit complicated,” Clark answered. “We need to talk, just give me a second.”
Clark flew toward the fighting and landed in between the three.
“I am Maxima,” the exotic woman said, “Of the royal family of the planet Almerac. Who are you?”
“I’m Superman. There’s no need to fight.”
“She attacked us,” said Hal.
“She must have felt her world was threatened,” said Clark. “Isn’t that right, Maxima?”
“Yes,” she agreed, looking closely at the Kryptonian before her.
“Our world is also being threatened,” Clark explained. “And I have to go with them to keep Earth safe.”
Lois’s eyes shot open. “Clark,” she said.
“Where?” Jimmy asked.
=== ==\§/== ===
“Lois,” Clark said, once the two were alone. “I don’t have a choice here.”
“It’s just so sudden,” she said, touching her engagement ring with her thumb.
“I know.” Clark lowered his head. “But how could I live with myself if I allowed Earth to come under attack because I refused to leave?”
“What about your family?” Lois asked. “What about your friends? What about me?”
“I made some stops on the way. It was hard, but I hope they understand. I hope you understand someday too.” Clark wrapped his arms around Lois, but she stepped back.
“I can deal with a lot, Clark, you know that. But this… It’s too much.”
“I’m sorry, Lois.”
Lois shook her head and moved in close, embracing her fiancé.
“You ready, Superman?” called Lobo from his ship. “I can drag you kicking and screaming if you prefer.”
“Goodbye, Lois.” Clark floated away until he reached the ship, entering it slowly with Lobo and Maxima.
As the ship took off, heading for the sky, Lois looked around. Hal and J’onn were as perturbed as she was. Jimmy was-
Where was Jimmy?
Lois’s phone beeped and a text message from Jimmy displayed on the screen.
Lois, this is probably the stupidest thing I’ve ever done, but the opportunity was there. I boarded the ship when nobody was looking.
To Be Continued…

2016.02.10 17:46 C0wabungaaa [Shadowrun 5e] When 'runners panic

Welp, this is my first greentext, hopefully I'm doing it right. I figured my previous Shadowrun session warranted it. So sit back and listen to my tale of madness.
Be SR5e GM
Party of 2edgy4me Human Sniper Adept goth girl, fancy socialite Elf Decker, goody-two-shoes Human Illusion Mage, quiet Troll meatshield.
It's their second job, I have them escort a random IT guy from a certain subsidiary over extra-territorial neo-AmTrak from Seattle to Manhattan.
Trip is all arranged, seems like easy money.
It's a sort-of trap, they're just an expendable distraction, shenanigans are waiting.
Party did barely any prep-work during the previous session.
thisgonnabegood.gif
First day of travel, party wants to get to the gear they smuggled on-board.
Snipesemi-social character is on the case.
Charisma-checks her way through the guards of the luggage car.
Engineer has keys, she seduces him.
SUDDENLY. OUT OF FUCKING NOWHERE.
Sniper-chick player runs out of ideas and panics, clubs engineer with a bottle of whiskey, bottle breaks then shanks him to death.
Gate to luggage isn't open yet, can't find the keycard, guards hear some commotion and start knocking on the door.
"wtfdidIdo.mp3" mode activated
Manages to open the gate and finds bag with gear quickly, grabs sniper and gets in position.
Troll was drinking with the IT guy, hears all of this over the com, abandons him and runs towards the luggage car.
Troll arrives right when the guards go in.
Roll for initiative bitches!
Sniper takes her first shot.
Critical. Fucking. Glitch. (For the D&D players; a natural 1 with even worse repercussions)
Troll-bro gets grazed, stumbles backwards right on the train car decoupling controls.
MOAR PANIC!
Hacker was also hearing all of this, suddenly yanks the emergency brake.
Lucky break, cars couple together again.
Meatshield's turn, goes to punch a guard into paste.
SECOND CRITICAL GLITCH!
Troll flails, cars decouple again.
Sniper gets her shit together, pops the guards.
All this happened in the span of like 5-10 minutes at the end of the session.
Party is now spread out over a stopping train somewhere in semi-hostile Salish Sidhe-Sioux Nation border country with every guard alarmed and the IT guy completely forgotten.
MFW
Credits roll.
And there we are. I...can't even imagine how they're going to get themselves out of this one. I'm going to schedule a new session ASAP because this is going to be very interesting. You could've had fisticuffs on a riding train you guys, you could've gotten a helicopter out of this you guys!

2016.01.22 22:56 TheLegend_NeverDies The End of House Raef

Volmond Ebonwrath, a longtime vassal of Raef, his sons, and his men had fought their way into Sea Dragon Castle with little resistance. Most of Raef's men had deserted not long ago. The poor fool had severely overestimated the loyalty of his men and his people's support of the Free North Rebellion. It's not like Ebonwrath really cared about politics. He'd always been one to take what he could when he could, and this was no exception. As the men of Ebonwrath stormed the keep, Lord Raef and hardly a dozen men in ragged fur armor awaited them within the small castle overlooking the Bay of Ice.
"Give this fight up, Raef! You've lost. The rebellion is dead and this peninsula is Ebonwrath land now! As it was always meant to be!", yelled Vormond's eldest son, Veldric at the old bearded lord.
"I'll surrender my House to you when you take it from my cold dead hands, you Ebonwrath vermin!", retorted Lord Raef in desperation.
"Twas the plan.", replied Endis with a smug calmness.
The final battle between the Raefs and the Ebonwraths was not one of those legendary battles you may have heard in the storybooks. There were no thousand man cavalry armies going at each others throats in a vast field for the fate of a continent. No, the "Battle" for Sea Dragon Point was merely a small skirmish in an unimpressive building of stone, fought for the prize of a forest-filled, boggy peninsula. Only five Ebonwrath men lost their lives that day, though House Raef was entirely wiped out, except for the young granddaughter of Lord Raef, about 7 years of age, who must have been escorted out by a servant in the confusion.
"Where is the little girl? She's the only member of House Raef not here.", Czed asked one of the Ebonwrath men.
"It matters not, my son. They have nothing left to return to.", said Volmond in a harsh, yet prideful tone.
"So... is this it, father? Is Sea Dragon Point ours at long last?", asked Veldric, who could barely hide his glee.
"Not quite, Veldric. Father still has to send a raven to Coryls Targaryen so he'll know what happened and so he can award us the land.", explained Endis while prodding a dead House Raef guard.
"Or we could send it to Benjen Stark...", noted Czed.
"We're shant ask Stark. I've grown quite tired of their house strutting so high and mighty like they're the damned Kings of the North. There's only one King I'll bow to, and that's the dragon!", Volmond reinforced by pounding his fist on his chest, which bore the Ebonwrath sigil.
"In any case, we'd best clean this place up and hang the new banners for when the rest get here. Yes, I think Volon and Venndrul will enjoy their new home.", said Vendric proudly with his hands on his hips.
"What exactly are we doing with the bodies, m'lord?", asked an Ebonwrath Sergeant.
"Carry old Raef over there down to his crypt in the catacombs. The rest can be tossed off the cliff and into the bay for all I care.", said old Volmond as he took his seat on the throne of Sea Dragon Point.

2015.04.15 20:10 English_American Prisoner of a Nonexistent War

After seeing Alester and his army off, he made for the chamber Alyn Payne was assigned. The Westerland Lord would be escorted back to Riverrun where his King was currently seducing the Lord Paramount or Fish King or whatever the fuck Brandon Tully called himself now. It relieved Luthor that he would be keeping busy with work over the next month or so, but he did wish he could stay and simply do nothing but watch the birds fly, the squirrels fight over nuts, and watch the roses grow. But alas, he would do his duty as his liege and nephew commanded.
The chamber Alyn was being held in was one like Luthor had taken. The only difference between the two was that Alyn was not allowed to leave his chambers unsupervised. As he approached, clad in armour similar to what he wore in his years before the Queensguard and his helmet held between his chest and his arm, the guards parted and allowed him inside. "Lord Alyn Payne, I am Ser Luthor Tyrell, uncle to King Alester and previous Lord Commander of Daenerys Targaryen's Queensguard. I am here to see you to Riverrun, where your King Lucion Lannister is currently residing."
He stood at the door, hand on hilt, waiting for the Payne Lord to respond. The Lord looked unlike any Westerlord he met, besides the green eyes of course. The brown hair and the beard reaching just below his chin were in contrast to the golden-brown hair most Westerlords boasted, mostly due to the massive amount of inbreeding the Lannister's participated in with their fellow Lords.

2014.09.17 22:15 Etrae Character of the Week: Gambit

Preface:
Gonna go light on the feats since a lot of this is gonna be similar to my Gambit Respect Thread and I'd rather share new info that the RT doesn't cover. If you want more Gambit stuff, go check that out.
Also check out, lediableblanc.com - easily the best place on the net for Gambit facts, scans and information.
Name: Remy Lebeau - Gambit
Titles: Guildmaster of the International Thieves Guild, Knight of the Realms of England, Knight of Avalon. Formerly: Death, Leader of the Unified Guild of New Orleans (Thieves and Assassins).
Team Affiliations: International Thieves Guild, X-Factor, Jean Grey School for Higher Learning (loosely). Formerly: Marauders, Horsemen of Apocalypse.
Allies: Tante Mattie (deceased), Fence, Storm, Rogue, X-23, Psylocke, Bishop, Wolverine, Brother Voodoo, Pete Wisdom.
Enemies: Mr. Sinister, Candra, Julien Bordreux (deceased. twice.). Formerly: New Orleans Assassins Guild.
Remy is the adopted mutant son of the head of the New Orleans Thieves Guild, Jean-Luc Lebeau, and was raised from a young age to pull heists and to be groomed to replace Jean-Luc.
Today, going by the mutant codename Gambit, Remy heads the International Thieves Guild while playing hero on the side. Gambit's shady past, unique sense of honor and often misguided attempts at doing bad things for good reasons leaves him untrusted by many but he is always willing to sacrifice himself to save as many innocents as possible and always repays his debts, even to those he considers enemies.
Powers:
  • Bio-Kinetic Manipulation - Gambit can manipulate the balance of potential and kinetic energy in inanimate objects with various results, most commonly to the point of critical instability making the object explode but other uses include cutting through objects, increasing the momentum for harder hits, dissolving things, a painful energy discharge, shockwaves, and powering electronics (he stole the Iron Man suit but couldn't get it to turn on).
  • Internal Kinetic Energy - His body is chock full of the stuff which gives him superhuman agility and dexterity, a passive resistance to telepathy, and a charming aura.
Skills:
Weaknesses:
  • Vibranium - Gambit's power is (occasionally) shown not to break apart objects made of vibranium. The object can still be charged and there will still be an explosion but it will stay a solid piece of metal. This has been used to hold Gambit by chaining him with Vibranium.
  • Surgically Modified - Gambit's true mutant potential can never be reached due to a surgery he underwent before he joined the X-Men. All of Gambit's feats are after this point but even when his powers are boosted, they pale in comparison to full potential Gambit (see 'New Sun' below).
Top Feats:
Important Alternate Forms: - (for fights and understanding his powers)
Witness - Witness shares the name Remy Lebeau as well as his appearance, personality and speech patterns but his true background is hard to make out. Witness exists in all points in time at once and is shown pulling seemingly inconsequential strings throughout history and is most well known for his involvement in Bishop's timeline. A theory among some fans believes that, at some point in Gambit's future, his (surgically limited) powers develop further until he becomes synonymous with kinetic energy, combining with the movement of time itself.
New Sun - Gambit's ultimate potential incarnate. In New Sun's reality, his kinetic powers continue to develop until they reach (apparent) Omega Mutant levels. When his full powers manifest, he accidentally burns out all life on Earth. New Sun's powers allow him to travel between universes and stop other Gambit's from doing the same to their version of Earth. New Sun's advanced powers give him an energy form and functional immortality, he can manipulate organic matter, and he can control kinetic energy from a distance and with much greater effect like casually making the opponent completely unable to move or... you know... burning out all life on Earth at once.

2014.06.17 03:57 Posting_Intensifies [Spoilers All] I see a lot of Brienne hate since Sunday. Let's talk about Brienne. (xpost from /r/GameofThrones)

Brienne of Tarth. Brienne the Blue. Brienne the BAMF is more like it. Yes, it's true. I'm on Team Brienne. But I can be relatively objective about this compared to Team Brienne-is-an-ugly-useless-cunt and Team Brienne-of-WIN-AMIRITE? So let's talk about her for a minute.
http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11/117031/3709879-njk.gif
In the show, we first see Brienne at Renly's melee. She fights very capably against Loras. It is no fluke or luck when she wins. She makes calculated moves. She strikes then there is an opening. She gets disarmed and Loras moves in swinging, so she tackles him and has him yield at knifepoint. This man unhorsed Jaime Lannister, in his prime, in the Hand's Tourney. So, what, she beat Loras one on one? Yeah. She did. At the end of the 116 man melee. She survived that and put the cherry on top by forcing the Knight of Flowers to yield.
http://imgur.com/aSongOfMemesAndRage/Yv7jNGc
She is tasked with escorting Jaime Lannister to King's Landing to exchange him for Catelyn Stark's daughter, Sansa. On the way, the run into three Stark men, who recognize Jaime. They try to corner Brinne and Jaime into revealing that he really is the Kingslayer. Before that happens, Brienne leaps into action, and before they can react much, she has two dead and one on the ground at her mercy. Mercy is a funny word to use, because she has none for him. She executes him slowly and painfully to avenge the third woman in a group that only experienced "two quick deaths."
http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m52toacWI11qb9ftxo1_500.gif
Brienne fought boys her entire life. She refused to stop just because her father told her it wasn't ladylike. Finally, he taught her how to fight proper. She became a formidable combatant. She chooses to fight with honor, when she can, but don't let the smooth taste fool you. She's from the streets. Look at the tackling of Loras when her back is to the wall. Look at how she scraps with the three Stark men. Bronn would like her.
In the book, they are chased by Robin Ryger's boat. Brienne gets out of the little boat, runs alongside Robin's ship until she can drop a boulder on it, then gets back in the little boat and boats off. Then they are attacked by archers. She charges them with Jaime to run them off. She takes two arrows, and that slows her down, right? Wrong. She bests the, admittedly out of practice, Jaime Lannister. I don't think there was ever doubt in her mind that she could beat him. She never showed fear, at least. She trounced him pretty thoroughly, both in the book and the show. So much so that Jaime is impressed, then worried, then angry that he is losing to her.
http://25.media.tumblr.com/cd68f29354812a07cdc7b9a63910562c/tumblr_mkxoxkUQXv1qir7p6o1_500.gif
They are captured by the Brave Companions and Brienne is told she will definitely be raped. She is advised not to resist and replies by asking what he would do. He knows damn well that warriors like himself and Brienne will fight to the death before giving some dumb bastards the pleasure.
I'm not going to say she's fearless. I'm sure she experiences fear. But she is brave and fights anyway. She clearly fights with her heart and fights to win. She may not have finesse, but she has skill, she has honor, and best of all, she isn't afraid to fight dirty. She is fair and honorable until you push her to the limit and force her to do what has to be done. You don't even have to push her that hard.
Let's move on.
She fends off a fuckin' bear until she is rescued. I'll let that speak for itself.
http://t.fod4.com/t/b06b340325/c1280x720_8.jpg
Now she has earned the respect of the Jaime Lannister.
In the books, she continues looking for Sansa. She meets Nimble Dick, who leads her and Pod to who she thinks is Dontos Hollard, the Fool that was seen last with Sansa. It ends up being three men from the Brave Companions. The leader, Shagwell, is dressed as a Fool. She kills one and is in a bad spot with the remaining two. When Pod hits Shag with a rock, Brienne capitalizes and kills the other of the remaining two. Shagwell tries to attack her while she buries Nimble Dick and she ruthlessly stabs him in the gut over and over. She is shaken by her loss of control and rage. Sometimes that happens to BAMFs. Sometimes BAMFs scare themselves with their beastliness. But remember, she is brave and beasts through that fear.
Oh. She kills Rorge. I honestly don't remember exactly how this goes down. Then she is pinned down by Biter and gets part of her face eaten.
Back to the show. Here is where everyone got pissy. Ohhhhh no, Brienne and the Hound had a knock down drag out brawl and Brienne stood the victor. Now the internet explodes with the rage of a million Clegane supporters. "But the Cleganes are some of the best fighters in Westeros! But Brienne isn't even that good of a fighter!"
Was Sandor Clegane (certainly a beast) "one of the best fighters in Westeros" before he had fought anyone? No.
Was he one of the best after he killed his first man? I don't know. Doubtful. How many fights did he lose in his life? Probably some. And his older bro made a grilled cheese with his face. That probably toughened him up. So he has lost some fights, won a lot of fights and killed his first man. Now is he one of the best? Probably not yet. But he is getting there. So he kills one more man. Now is he one of the best? Probably not. But after several more men, people take notice. Now maybe he is one of the best. And he keeps going. He doesn't give a shit if people think he's a good fighter. He just fights.
So what about Brienne of Tarth? Brienn the Blue? A silly, ugly maiden, trying to be one of the boys. She fights and loses. Fights more and loses more. Fighting and losing for a long time, but she doesn't let fear or doubt hold her back. Her father teaches her to fight. Maybe she wins some before Renly's Melee, where she lasts longer than 114 men and then defeats Loras in single combat. Loras, the knight who unhorsed Jaime Lannister (IN HIS FUCKING PRIME) in the Hand's Tourney. Now do people think she is a great fighter? Pfft, no, she's a woman. What a fluke. Hilarious. What about getting rid of a pursuing boat by dropping a boulder on it? That's just weird. And lucky. This woman might be a better Fool than warrior or maiden, HAR! Then what about killing two men before the third one can blink? And then executing the third because he is a fucker? Well, that was kinda cool, I guess. And then she charges archers and runs them off. And then she bests the Kingslayer. And then she scraps with a bear. And then she kills one of the jester's men. And then she kills another of the Jester's men. And then she kills the Jester. Is she badass yet? Or is she still some dumb bitch? Nothing more than an ugly beast?
When is she good enough? Ever? When do people start singing songs about her that don't involve bears? When do people think "I don't want to fight her, she might kill me like that one guy she killed. Or that other guy. Or that OTHER other guy. Or those three guys. Or that other guy. And then she also beat the Knight of Flowers in single combat. After lasting longer than 114 other guys."
Now, is Brienne perfect? Of course not. Is she the best fighter? Absolutely not. She's slower than some, like Bronn, two-handed Jaime, Oberyn, Jon Snow, Daario... She's weaker than some, like Gregor Clegane, the Hound (maybe), Biter... um... Mag the Mighty? Probably several others. There are smarter.
But she has battle intelligence. She can think quickly. She can capitalize on openings. She can maneuver the her opponent and use terrain to her advantage. She can SCRAP. She can BRAWL. She can stab a dude over and over and over. She is a VERY formidable fighter, as she has demonstrated over and over. And OVER. AND OVER.
But when will she have proven herself? You all see what you want to see. I see a warrior who has made a name for herself already. I don't have any problem believing she beat the Hound outright.

2014.02.17 01:00 liono69 Mass Effect (SPOILERS)

The Reapers have assimilated Skynet and using their time travel technology they have altered the chain of events in the Mass Effect Universe, ensuring that Shepherds squad mates all die before the the events of Mass Effect. Unfortunately for them Shepherd is still alive, and he has allies. Uatu and The Doctor have witnessed this and decided to take steps to set things right. They have informed the Justice League, The Illuminati, The Elder Gods and The Jedi Council as well as other leaders of the Multiverse. Working together these organizations have put together a roster of men and women to replace Shepherd's crew in the series while not destroying the time stream. You decide how they would fare.
[Meta] I have chosen the links and characters very carefully, for example Cyborg is from the animated show Teen Titans not the new 52 Justice League. I have tried to make sure nobody on this list is too OP. Also the Star Wars characters do not have their lightsabers for this post. Also I apologize in advance if someone doesn't know all the characters. I tried to use the best wiki pages I could find and use relatively well known characters.
Mass Effect 1
In place of Kaiden Alenko: Spock with L2 Bio-amps
In place of Ashley Williams: Maria Hill
In place of Urdnot Wrex: Cyborg with L3 Bio-amps
In place of Tali Zorah: Kaylee Frye
In place of Garrus Vakarian: The Arbiter
In place of Liara T'Soni: Aayla Secura
So just to remind you these guys have to take on the roles of their Mass Effect counterparts. For example on Eden Prime Shepherd can only have Maria and Spock with him. He (We will assume a maleshep paragon soldier for this) will meet the other squad mates on the citadel. Can he still succeed in the events of ME 1?
Before continuing you must either sacrifice Spock or Maria, there is no choice in the matter.
Remember that Shepherd only ever hits the ground with 2 companions so choose wisely. The rest of the crew on the Normandy will stay the same.
  • Who do you take with you to The Citadel to confront Saren?
  • Do you save or sacrifice The Council?
  • Who do you choose as the first human council member? Anderson or Udina
  • Can you lead Citadel forces to stop Harbinger and defeat Saren before he brings the Reapers back from dark space?
Mass Effect 2
In place of Miranda Lawson: River Song with L5 Bio-amps (no vortex manipulator)
In place of Jacob Taylor: Jax Briggs with L4 Bio-amps
In place of Zaeed Massani: Slade Wilson
In place of Kasume Goto: Mystique
In place of Garrus Vakarian: The Arbiter
In place of Dr. Mordin Solace: Dr. Hank Mccoy
In place of Grunt: Superboy
In place of Jack: River Tam with L5 Bio-amps
In place of Samara: Shaak Ti
In place of Thane Krios: Jason Bourne L3 Bio-amps
In place of Tali Zorah: Kaylee Frye
In place of Legion: T-800
So remember here that these characters must join Shepherd on the suicide mission. Do they have the skill sets to succeed and stop the Collectors?
Also remember that in the beginning all you will have is River, Jax, Slade, Mystique and Shepherd. You still get your character dossiers in the order you are given them in the game which is the order listed.
  • Who does Shepherd take with him other than Aayla into the layer of the Shadow Broker?
  • Who do you send through the pipeline to disengage the steam valves?
  • Who maintains a force field to hold off the Seeker Swarms? Do they live through it?
  • Who leads Bravo team and who is on Bravo team for the suicide mission?
  • Who (if anyone) escorts the Normandy's crew back to the ship?
  • Who do you take with you to battle the Human Reaper? Can the remainder of your squad hold off the Collector horde? Does anybody die?
Mass Effect 3
In place of Kaiden Alenko: Spock with L2 Bio-amps
In place of Ashley Williams: Maria Hill
In place of James Vega: Marcus Fenix
In place of Liara T'Soni: Aayla Secura
In place of EDE: Tasha Lem
In place of Garrus Vakarian: The Arbiter
In place of Javik: Jason Todd with L5 Bio-amps
In place of Tali Zorah: Kaylee Frye
Can your team survive?
Remember that if they lived through the ME and ME2 scenarios:
  • Jax and Mystique will be assets working on the Crucible.
  • Hank McCoy will try to cure the genophage.
  • Cyborg will have have to lead the Krogan into battle.
  • Either Spock or Maria will become a Spectre
  • River Tam will teach at the school of biotics
  • Bourne will protect the hospital on the Citadel and when it is time confront Kai Leng
  • The T-800 will try to assist Commander Shepherd and his squad in freeing the Geth from Reaper control.
  • Shaak Ti, Superboy and Slade will be leading other Council forces in the fight against the Reapers.
  • The Arbiter must advise the Turian forces on Reaper forces and be responsible for being a liaison for Turian refugees on the Citadel.
Remember that in the beginning you just have Marcus and either Spock or Maria Hill. You will pick up Aayla and Tasha Lem on Mars. Tasha will be in Dalek form and will try to kill you. You must disable her, or talk her down before you can use her as a squad mate.
  • Who will you take with you to Palaven to retrieve The Arbiter and The Primarch?
  • Who will you take with you Tuchonka? Will you save Krogan from the Genophage? Can MCcoy do it?
  • Who do you take with you to the Migrant Fleet? Can you arrange a truce between the Quarians and the Geth without Tali and Legion? If not which do you side with?
  • Who will you take with you to Thessia? Can your squad defeat Kai Leng there?
  • Who will fight beside you in the battle for Earth?

2011.10.21 17:31 Edbergj Request: Image of TIE Fighters flying in formation

This was the best I could find
It could be three to five ships. I wouldn't mind a TIE chasing down an X-Wing. Would rather not have an image with Vader's TIE w/ the two escorts.
Thanks in advance!
