    *Finding a way to weasel out of an oath to not tell my commander about the Paladin making a deal for power with a demon is within my character. Proceeding to lead the now murderously enraged paladin on a wild goose chase around our home base for half a day using lots of stealth cheese and summoned creatures is just rubbing it in.
    ** That same character cannot distract a couple of guards armed to the teeth by acting cute while Wild Shaped into a kitten. Especially if what they're guarding is a prison in Fantasy Siberia.
    *** If you want to play an impulsive and brash trickster so badly, cannot keep being unable to roll above a 5 on saves against Fear. Especially if I'm proficient in that save with high Wisdom, and have a decent time rolling Wisdom saves otherwise.

    May not argue it is just because you forgot size limitations on polymorph and should have used shape change.

    You canít cause a subject to assume a form smaller than Fine
    So fine is fine but nothing smaller than fine is fine.
    But fine is the smallest size.
    Polymorph size restriction does not makes sense: since there is nothing smaller than fine saying "You canít cause a subject to assume a form smaller than Fine" is redundant with the fact sizes smaller than fine does not exists.
    But it also means I can take the shape of a bug so it is okay.

    Naturally not - it only gets you about 500km up tops, which is barely LEO, and can only affect 1000lb, which is pretty light for a satellite. And it costs 1000xp a pop, which isn't exactly chicken feed. You'd be much better off just using conventional teleportation.

    Well actually, satellites are currently being designed to be ever smaller and lighter, with a preference for multiple smaller satellites over 1 large one. 500km is also a quite respectable orbit (the ISS, for example, orbit at around 430 km).

    True, and we don't want to wait until Epic Magic Congress online anyway.

    As you've said, chaining conventional teleports is probably much more efficient for achieving a high altitude, but to get into orbit we also need a lot of sideways velocity. By my reckoning we need a low damage, wide AoE spell to apply explosive spell to, and then fire a bunch of them off behind us to accelerate. Now if we want to achieve manned exploration of side we just need a way to hold the atmosphere in and a way to steer...

    We did.

    First, there was a discussion about whether Greater Teleport or Interplanetary Teleport would impart you with the v required to stay in orbit. We determined that, because it drops you stationary relative to the reference point, it does impart you with the necessary v to stay there,so you can use it to jump to orbit. You can mathematically determine your orbit, and thus the r and v you need at a given time, and verify with a telescope the point, which establishes the familiarity requirement for teleport.

    So, I had a character teleport to orbit and leave a marker there so that it could be teleported back to. Then, I teleported some of my minions, my cohort, and some construction supplies to build a space station. Everybody involved was undead or a construct, thus overcoming the issue with being in vacuum.

    Movement was accomplished with the Fly spell, which we determined didn't require being in the atmosphere since it made no reference to wings or air-dependent propulsion. Once there was a framework, cables and magnets allowed the minions to move adequately.

    For attitude control, the spell Telekinesis can exert 25lbf of force. It's not a lot, but it is a controllable source of force. If something went wrong and we started tumbling or lost control, we'd be in trouble, but since we were alone in space, the plan was for things not to go wrong.

    **Yes, Annelie the Vampire Sorceress has ranks in Knowledge (Engineering), which is an actual skill and would cover aerospace engineering, and an absurdly high INT, that still doesn't allow her to design and control spacecraft. The particular application for it has yet to be conceived.
    ***No, she is not conceiving of the idea of using her ranks in Knowledge (Engineering) to design and control spacecraft right now.

    I've found that AE is a field that doesn't lend itself well to its elements being incorporated into RPG's, despite the wealth of Sci-Fi RPG's. In fact, I almost exclusively run Sci-Fi games with spaceships and I basically never get to incorporate my technical knowledge into what I run. Fundamentally, for the purposes of an RPG, it doesn't matter how the spacecraft goes from planet A to planet B [unless you're playing as the navigation and control team at JPL, which I believe it is safe to say that you aren't], only that it does. Likewise, there's basically no situation that would call upon the players to design an atmospheric flying machine, or at least consider the technicals of doing so. And, if it even comes up, it's taken care of as a single skill roll.

    *Players do not require real life ranks in Navigate (Stellar) for their characters to have ranks in Navigate (Stellar).
    **If you need to have passed AE402 to play in my game, I should rethink the contents of my game.

    Guardsmen, hear me! Cadia may lie in ruin, but her proud people do not! For each brother and sister who gave their lives to Him as martyrs, we will reap a vengeance fiftyfold! Cadia may be no more, but will never be forgotten; our foes shall tremble in fear at the name, for their doom shall come from the barrels of Cadian guns, fired by Cadian hands! Forward, for vengeance and retribution, in His name and the names of our fallen comrades!

    ****Annelie the Vampire would implode on the paradox that from a certain distance away from earth, the sun is always shining AND space is also known as the "endless night".

    [Entire Aerospace Engineering Discussion]
    *"Aerospace Engineering related college-level lectures" and "Rock Gnome lullabies" are not synonymous
    **The answer to "What does a Rock Gnome parent make when the fridge is empty?" is not "a Saturn V rocket"
    ***Elon Musk is not a Rock Gnome in disuise
    ****GNO GNOMES AT GNASA
    Stop using good evidence and logic that makes sense to refute points, that's my job

    Lots of people seem to use blue for sarcasm, I decided I should too
