    Maybe something with Luka...I don't know, other than something you have with Luka I don't think there's anything or anywhere else.

    Maybe post with Hover if ya want over in the Cirrus.

    MCerberus, it would be sweet if you were more clear on Staccata's actions. As far as I can tell she's just rolling over there and that's her round.

    What Benson said, you had a scene with Asis and them with Luka.

    Also, some ponies have moved onto the next day, on account of the vampony plot taking longer than expected. You could have Blaze get up and start preparing the ship for the wedding, discussing things with Hover, that sort of thing.

It's less whether or not he's a Shaolin Monk, it's more that there were bigger threats to go after, and his logic (to me) says that he'd go after those bigger threats to ensure that everypony got out alive.

    After the fight, I'd totally see him try to kill them off for good if nopony stopped him, but that's only after they've all been incapacitated.

    I'm not trying to specifically go after you because you're doing disagreeable things. Far from it, RPs like this thrive on inter-character conflict caused by such actions. It's just that I don't quite see the logic as you stated matching up with his actions.
    *nodnod* I see your point there, and if these were normals, you'd have the right of it. In this case, though, it's less that there are other alligators and more that the alligator in question can regrow limbs and burn ropes if the sun is out. But Daniel doesn't have a watch. He'd rather take what may well be crucial seconds to get an enemy out of the game FOREEEEVEEERRR then jump into the rest of the fray when he has no idea if FPS can just get right back up. Keep in mind he's never experienced short-term vampiric regeneration, and so has no idea what vampires are really capable of, even semi-staked, when left alone.

    I hope I'm making sense with this, rather than just causing more confusion.

    Again, I totally understand the logic, but I think you might be forgetting something: We've just had a fight with the exact same type of vamponies, where it was shown that leaving stakes in them after they were conked out meant they were down for good. And so far, every vampony we've taken out has had some amount of wood (either a stake, arrow, or one of them food skewers) plunked into them. In fact, Rainbow made a point of not lethally shooting that one pegasus Daniel hypothetically decapitated.

    And if that wasn't enough, we still had the experience with Zephyr earlier at the club, where Daniel plunked stakes into him, and kept him from regenerating. Zephyr even said words to the effect of "You gotta take these stakes out before I can do anything". He only regenerated after Sandy removed the stakes. There might've been a third time, when we were dealing with Meadow, but I don't know for sure, so I won't cite it.

    So Daniel has, on two different occasions, seen vampony regeneration halted by the presence of wood, and he's also seen that KO'd vamponies don't get back up when they've got wood stuck in them.

    Would that affect his thinking any?

    (Note: I am getting on my super logical voice, which is hard to distinguish from a stern, "blargh blargh you're wrong" voice. To ensure the correct tone comes through, here is a smiley with its tongue sticking out: )

    I concede to your points (all of which are spot-on) and admit that I didn't think that one through, justifications after the fact aside. While more lethality was likely to happen, that was really...pointless. We could probably drill deeper into the psychology, sure, but what can I really do about it?

    If Benson allows, you could retcon his action to, say, assisting Rainbow with the shooting down of vamponies. If it was an honest mistake that Daniel wouldn't have made in-character, I know I wouldn't have a problem with calling the proverbial mulligan. Less than a round has passed since the action took place, so it's not like great, irreparable consequences have happened yet. Not to mention that, so far, only two PCs really took notice enough to say/do something. And I even designed my post to work if you decided to un-do the action.

    This was a nice little discussion, by the way. Gave me a good look at what's going on in the brain of our resident nutty bard.

    They're useful for roughly confirming who is where and what's going on. I don't really look at the map though, mind; mostly just a glance here and there.

    The maps are super helpful for keeping track of everypony in this massive scenes. I'd say keep them up.

    My laptop has tanked, using another's for some posts today. Don't expect much from, expect simply very sporadic posting.

    Feel free to move along scenes, feel free use my characters within reason on what they'd likely do.

    I will however, still be trying to work on the vampony stuff/.

    Messy scenes is messy. Though I don't recall glossing over anyone. Time to fix that.

    My apologies.

    EDIT: Oh, that scene. I was waiting on Purity. It seems he posted just when I was typing up my post.

    I have a question for Luka before I can respond to the battle scene -

    Did the armor disperse the shadow spell and use the raw energy for power, or did it absorb the shadow magic itself?

    The main difference being, is it the full spell - under Arvadraa's complete control due to being her shadows and all - or a generator catalyst?

    It absorbed the shadow magic itself, being of the same kind and everything, like casting harm on an undead creature
