Out of curiosity (ie. no obligation to answer) what system are you using? Exalted has a reputation for being clunky and easily broken.
Ahh, it is a little clunky, but we have some house rules for the worst of it (there has even been talk of creating our own simplified combat system). So 2nd edition with mods. We’re all looking forward to 3rd though, as it looks like they’ve fixed a lot of things. Our group is super roleplay heavy with good communication and great GMs, so we also tend to avoid the deliberate munchkin exploitation. Rule of thumb for Exalted: it’s amazing with the right group, horrific with the wrong one.
I don’t try super hard, but I’m a bit of a munchkin and have found that it’s generally easiest for everyone if I just ask the GM during character creation ‘hey this seems broken can I still do it’. Although some things I don’t do just because they don’t really make sense. *cough infinite banked training cough*
We have had at least one thing where I requested a rules change because a charm I had seemed weirdly overpowered/poorly defined in the book. (Halting the Scarlet Flow + warform for those interested- although I haven’t checked the erratas about it)
(Then again, my munchkin characters have been a librarian and a mortal craftsman, so I’m more going for the silly exploits than the game-breaking ones.)
I am blathering about my dreams again.
The population of a small otherwordly community is watching some passing entertainment, which encourages them to eat all of their nuts, berries, etc. Once the entertainment leaves, they realize they now have nothing to plant, and are going to never have fruits and nuts again.
I didn’t go for eating everything because I wasn’t hungry, and am trying to figure out how to plant things without people going ‘LAST STRAWBERRY’ and eating them, especially since everyone is still gathered where the entertainment was and my stuff is under my seat.
Somehow in spite of it being a dream I come up with the idea of spitting out a berry in my mouth, standing up on the seat, and yelling ‘who wants to plant berries for everyone’ and then handing it to someone who volunteers. I wind up giving pretty much everyone something they can plant, and people seem pretty excited about it.
Then I get to the highly popular potatoes and am stuck trying to explain to the elders that we should have two people growing potatoes, because a monopoly might be bad, and they just think I’m completely nuts.
Short version: My dreams have me trying to explain capitalist theories to space aliens.
While working on her homework, engineeringenigma sliced her finger open with a box cutter. It was deep enough to warrant a hospital visit. She remained calm and collected the entire time, and brought her homework with her to the hospital. She worked on it in the waiting room. Just writing up her report with one hand while holding the other up above heart height to keep it from bleeding on things.
engineeringenigma is a dedicated fuzzy badass.
See, the worst part is that I was all ‘oh no I have to ask my professor for an extension because it’s due at midnight’ and so I got an extension and turned it in today
And then realized that it’s was actually do at midnight today and I had turned it in on time.
The other worst part is that I was more productive in the emergency room than I’ve been for the past few weeks. (although I probably should have stuck to just writing the report instead of trying to explain to someone how to use calipers to take measurements for me)
