  If a savar casts a spell
Posted by: Teegani - 08-08-2018, 08:49 PM - Forum: Rules Questions - Replies (1)

Funny question:

Simulation:
If a Savar casts a spell, and it is reflected (as the Protection spell describes) and they still have their racial/day use of Cat-like reflexes. 

Could they potentially deflect it away from themselves? 
Since there are no physical spellpackets how would the ruling apply? 
Does the reflect itself simply over-rule the potential of Cat-Like Reflexes' capabilities of swatting it?

((This is just some theoretical fun)).

I personally would love the opportunity to have the spellpacket thrown physically back and and to swat it. But that's just me! It'd be a hilarious counter, to a counter.

I have an odd question about Moonlight Mantle;

It states that only a Nature sphere caster may wear the moonlight Mantle, but anyone can receive its healing benefit.

Does this completely render this sphere's spell - locked from being a useful Scroll as well as from being (worn) through abilities such as the BattleMage Vocation-(Amulet) which can be activated by anyone who knows the spell inside the amulet?

On Magical Items 1/day or other similar activated items or abilities which possess Moonlight-Mantle. (such as an Avian's Goggles' racial purchased ability).
The way I am reading this is: EX. Even if an Avian (or any other item creation) were to create Goggles with this spell, they could still not (wear) it, but would only heal the 6 points. Since the spell description itself states:that to (wear) it you need to have Sphere(Nature). While the Avian goggles-racial reads that to create the effect, they do not need to meet any of the spell-casting requirements or know the sphere.
This is applicable to any magical item or activatable item which can be imbued with this spell.

Was this spell specifically worded in this way to make it entirely exclusive to (not only spell-casters), but specifically one that possesses the Nature sphere?

I would really be interested in the ruling on this.

Greetings Ashendael,

We'd love to hear your comments regarding this event: the good, the bad, the ugly, let us hear it all!

This game was a little different from the usual fare: extreme temperatures, a summertime day mod (8 hours of LARP), and instamod driven plot - we'd love to hear your thoughts on those things. How do you feel about LARPing in those extreme heat conditions? Is it just too hot to LARP outside? Would you prefer a full weekend? Is an 8 hour day mod just the right amount to scratch your itch? Temperature aside, how about general format of a summer day mod? Did you enjoy the option of a social gathering afterwards? The Instamod driven plot was also a new idea: plot-on-demand when you wanted to pursue it, combat accessed through the instamods, and most general play areas were RP oriented (leaving combat optional for those who wished to pursue it) - how did that work out for you?

We welcome feedback about the above and anything else you'd like to mention; we use this feedback to continually grow and evolve our game, making it better for you.
If you would prefer to give your feedback more privately, you can email hop@underworldottawa.ca or overseer@underworldottawa.ca


Cheers

You are invited to join us on the site in Carp to help with ongoing site prep for the season. Frags are available for those want to help us prep and work on the Big Jobs (priority areas and tasks identified by management): lifting and cleaning various debris from in and around NPC camp and Town Center to help enlarge those areas and improve safety, cutting and clearing grass and brush in the same areas. Each work site will be monitored so that those who are helping can be properly tracked and awarded frags; frags will be pro-rated as needed (for those unable to work for the full day). Frags are not provided for time spent on personal or social activitiy, although you are welcome to come out for the day.

Where:
110 Donald B. Munro Dr, Carp, ON K0A 1L0

Build Day Requests:
These things would be great to bring along if you have them (small frag bonus may be available):
Steel spade
Shovel
Chainsaw

Sturdy Rake
Weed wacker (especially with heavy duty blade attachment)

Sturdy footwear (maybe steel toe if you plan to wield blades and other dangerous tools)
Work gloves
Insect repellant (mosquitoes, ticks, and other biting critters are on site and you may encounter them)
Camping Gear and flashlight if you want to stay the night (no official activities are planned, and there is no build day on Sunday, this is just optional camping)


Cheers!


  Lost my water bottle at last session
Posted by: HarshGrace - 07-02-2018, 09:56 AM - Forum: Out of Game Community - No Replies

I seem to have left my water bottle at the camp when I left. If anyone has seen it, can you please hold onto it? I will pick it up at the next session, or you can message here and I will come to pick it up. It's blue and has a little lock on the opening so that water doesn't get out. Like there is an actual lock symbol.

This is Risband by the way. Just so you know who's it is.
