  1. Nagash overslept again last Sunday, so we skipped the session. In other dastardly news, I won't be able to play at all next weekend, so I can't GM then. We discussed the possibility of Nyaa GMing Calpurnia's rescue mission, but the problem would them remains that I won't be able to play. Even with Schwarz around, the possibility of having to cancel is substantial. Without an extra player or two, I'm afraid things like these are bound to happen - the chances of two players missing sessions at once are quite high. This raises the big question: is the game still viable? Should we, under these circumstances, put it on hiatus?
  2. Ok. Instructions retconned: we start at 12 on Sunday.
  3. Oh. So 12 would be better on Sunday?
  4. We'll start at 13 gmt on Sunday. It should be easier on nyaa, we concluded last time.
  5. Damn. I miscalculated, it's 2 hours early, so not really doable. I think we'll have to do Sunday - schwarz already told me dirks opinions on the agenda for last time, so d can be present anyway. So sunday (edited) 13 gmt.
  6. Would it be ok for everyone to play on Sunday? I have to go early on Saturday.
  7. Yeah, i guess strictly speaking it also does not resolve the applicability of the guideline concerning levels and such. I am going to GM it My Way, i.e special case all the way and no problem in sight.
  8. From CJ : "Ok you only make one roll for WC but if it botches everyone gets the warping etc. Aegis does have to penetrate: that it doesn't is the most common house rule of all and I'm happy to play either way we make a troupe decision. These are both very unclear in 5th ed but that is the official rulings afaik. I've been wrong before but here I am pretty much certain as obviously I have had to check in the past as an author. Feel free to post this on the forum I cant from my phone!" So my version for communion, scwarz' for aegis, right?
  9. Yeah, I noticed that as well - I think the source has been drained, so to speak. We can try again later.
  10. Achtung! I can't play at all this weekend! Sorry about the late notice. Perhaps we'll continue the week after, when Scwharz is back as well?
  11. Ah, I thought you meant summertime as in "summer" as in something that is over already, but you meant daylight savings stuff, right?
  12. Thanks for the guideline, that's useful information. I still think the guideline doesn't apply, for all the aforementioned reasons. I think your 5 per base level interpretation is rather far-fetched. Let's hope CJ gets around to giving his opinion at some point.
  13. Wow. That's some hard-ass warding. Did he try some alternative solution back then? If so, what?
  14. Items Baruch requests from the covenant: A light iron chain belt that casts Doublet of Impenetrable Silk on the clothes it touches. An iron needle that, when placed on an arcane connection, points to the target for which this is an arcane connection. Doable?
  15. Yes, the ward penetration thing is known and presumed in all the discussions I linked above, but my impression is that most people still think the Aegis should not need to penetrate, i.e. that it should be more powerful than other wards. I think so too. But we should ask CJ - I'll email him now, hopefully he finds the time to answer with the tribunal behind him.
  16. I think Nagash had done some Overtime and overslept, so we decided to skip this Saturday and try again next week. We talked about some changes, though: Nyaa said he would prefer if we played at gmt +1, because this would help him get up particularly during them dark, dreary wintermonths. Would this be OK for everyone? Also, we all agreed that it would be good to look for another player from the Atlas forums - that would make us less vulnerable to the unavoidable scenario of people missing sessions unexpectedly. Unless someone disagrees, I'll post an advertisement in a few days.
  17. Ah that's what you meant with the 5 per base level Utter madness, I say!
  18. Yes but even if it's only for formulaic, you'd need 10 magi with the level 15 communion to cast a level 15 spell (because each magus contributes 3 base levels, and it has to total to 30). I don't know why I'm continuing this. Argh. Stubborn gene go away.
  19. Rrright. So the level 15 spell in our library is either base 3 (if momentary) or base 1 (if duration sun). Is this what you mean? So it's essentially useless in any case.
  20. What I mean was that the spell is at group target and voice range. Why aren't you adding magnitudes for those? And if you think it can be personal and individual, then why did they list those there? And why didn't they add magnitudes for them, but why do you think duration should be added? None of it makes any sense according to the standard guidelines.
  21. ... And why wouldn't you need the group target that's specified in the guideline? Come now, Schwarzbart, that is completely silly. Ah, I'm letting others have the next go, I consider this settled.
  22. And given the above, if it worked like you think, you'd need six wizards with level 25 wizard's communions (because base 5 + 4 magnitudes) to cast a level 15 spell (because the communion would be level 30 then).
  23. I'm not sure I understand you correctly, but I think you've got it completely confused now - the number of extra magi doesn't have anything to do with the spell's level, the level of the total wizard's connection must just be double the target spell's level for it to work. Beyond that, the level doesn' t matter, only the number of participating magi.
  24. I don't think so - look at the end of the description, where it usually mentions the extra magnitudes. It just says "base effect". I'm pretty sure you're wrong about this, but I think we should let CJ decide, since it hinges on the base interpretative framework one chooses.
