    Since you aren't informing your friend of the exact nature of the memetic hazard, I believe this qualifies.
    I really like this answer.

    Ash, do you have any insights regarding the effects of [aligned] spells and items regarding character alignment? In addition, have you ever thought of producing a 3pp regarding the magic item creation rules? (either as a user manual, or a catalogue of wondrous items that are actually worth the gp cost)

    > effects of [aligned] spells and items regarding character alignment

    Allow me to attempt to bestow the wisdom granted me by her lordship, divine Ashiel, upon you. Please, do not smite me if I fail in this attempt, deithic thoughts were never meant to be translated by human minds, and thus some errors are likely to appear.

    It is as follows: "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, no."

    I believe that it means "Alligned spells don't allign the caster any more than Fire spells turn a caster into a fire elemental."

    That's okay, his treacherous ribs will go with him. It's a sacrifice we have to make in the endless war against the skeleton within.

    This would probably make casters way more fun and interesting though. Spell descriptors have physical effects on the caster. Cast too many fire spells and you start to become an elemental spirit, or or illusion spells start making you illusionary and your illusion starts reflecting your thought. As in, when you get angry to r visage randomly flickers into a hatred form or your emotional dislays are over exaggerated.

    This friend is going to die unless you kick them (as hard as you can) in the rib cage. If you dont kick them while they slumber, they will never wake up. However, you can never explain this to your friend; if you later inform them that you did this to save their life, they will also die from that. So you have to kick a sleeping friend in the ribs, and you cant tell them why. Since you cannot tell your friend the truth, what excuse will you fabricate to explain this (seemingly inexplicable) attack?
    Am I boring if my answer is that I pass it off as tripping up and stumbling into them?

    I'm boarding the flight to New Zealand right now. Also listening to a book in which international flights get hijacked by terrorists. Is this bad luck?

    [Edit] Sitting here, waiting for take off, and the bloody power went out! Like, the plane blew a bloody fuse and then... darkness.

    OMFG IT JUSY HAPPRNED AGAIN AD IM TYPING THE EDIT!?!?

    If this were an RPG, I would not be going through with this flight. You just know something bad is coming if this hhappened during a session.

    Don't worry! It's not necessarily a RPG game! Maybe you're in a murder mystery novel... In that case you have a good chance of simply being one of the witnesses/suspects the detective has to question.

    Holy water and anti-invisibility don't help against your airship falling out of the sky.

    It's all in your hands. Post something that starts a discussion then.

    And I think that this is more or less the average level of activity for the old thread.

    Well... Techinically speaking, no. "Asking" is just as easy as it was before... It's getting the question answered that became more difficult.

    The wonderful thing about asynchronous communication is that the subject does not need to be immediately present for you to communicate with them. Knowing Ashiel is on a car trip, I can ask:

    Hey, how was your car trip? Where'd you go?

    Through the magic of time travel, this message travels forward to the future, and arrives (to her perspective) when she exits the car and checks the thread. At some point thereafter, she will choose to answer (or not), and the ritual is complete!

    Yeah, this happens every so often, that pesky RL thing. They'll be back soon enough. And I'll be stalking them and waiting to see what they think of that webcomic and such. And building random path of war characters.

    Rhetorical?
    Players are like water. They go everywhere.
    So you need to cut the channels that direct them where you want them to go.
    If they try to skip the channel, let them. Cut another one ahead of them.
    Eventually, they'll take the channel. They'll even think it was entirely their own idea.
    When you try to build a dam, that's when they resent you.

    Hey everyone. I just got back from my trip to Tennessee, but I've got work tonight, so I'll resume my regular posting tomorrow.

    PS: Thanks, Klara, for mentioning I was on a trip. I could have sworn I said something about that in the thread but I apparently only told everyone on Discord.

    Actually, what's kind of funny is I'm super happy that I don't have to worry about random peoples' posts vanishing with no explanations, so I actually think this is more conductive to avoiding echo chambers in general. I'm not particularly interested in an echo chamber since people don't grow if they're not challenged. I'd dare say that if it wasn't for being constantly challenged by those with opposing views, I'd have at best a tiny fraction of any respect I've earned, because without those challenges and the subsequent debates, discussions, or simply inspirations to produce or address something, I most likely wouldn't have.

    It's because of those challenges that a track record could be established, which is a good record, of which I'm very happy with. I like that people value my opinions or thoughts on mechanics and such, but they likely wouldn't (or would have little reason to) if not for the history of conflicting ideas. It also has encouraged me to try to maintain a certain quality of production in my posts and such, since the last thing I want to do is disappoint someone or make them feel like their valuing my thoughts was a waste. That bit of pressure helps keep me sharp, I think.

    Our good friend Alicorn can probably attest that I'm willing to entertain ideas that I don't necessarily share. We spent probably four pages or so discussing different approaches to game design and mechanics.

    Did you notice your signature is wrong/misleading?

    This thread is names "TALK TO Ashiel About Anything", but in your signature you linked it as "ASK Ashiel Anything)... Are you saying we can only ask and never talk?

    Eh, it was originally my AMA thread but it seems to have evolved or took a prestige class or got reincarnated or something...

    BTW: It seems my internet is acting up again (came back from Tennessee to find it won't stay connected for more than a few minutes) so I'll be posting as often as I can manage without pulling my hair out. I'm off the next few days though so I'll get the techies over here and then play lots of thread catchup.
