Did D&D twice this weekend: once with my taclord, once with a new tiefling starlock I'd just rolled up for LFR. Overall, I'm a little disappointed with the starlock. His AC is piss-poor (14), and neither of my at-wills benefits from my hellfire blood feat. ...well, actually, that's not true. Dire radience does benefit from the hellfire blood, but since it's based on my Con instead of my Cha, that only brings it to a +4/+4 instead of a +5/+5 like my encounter and daily power. Of course, our entire party couldn't hit the broad side of a barn yesterday, so... However, both my encounter and daily being Will defense debuffs when neither of my at-wills are Will targeted isn't that useful. I might reassess that at my next level.
I think my taclord rebuild will work better (took greatspear proficiency - reach and proficiency bonus of +3), but Saturday's D&D session got cut short after only two encounters, so I didn't get a chance to get a good feel for her.
In other news, I've more or less finished A Kingdom for Keflings, but there's one thing that bothers me. There are several building pieces that just aren't used in any of the blueprints. There's a branch in the story, but I've played through both branches now, and there are just some pieces which aren't used anywhere. That implies that there are hidden buildings, but putting together buildings in the game isn't exactly trivial... I can't imagine putting in the effort to actually find anything that you didn't have a blueprint for without some sort of hint as a basis. I suppose they could release more blueprints later, on Live?
I did some writing last night, finally managed to get to the meat of where I was going with the scene. Unfortunately, the following bit feels too threadbare -- I don't know what I'm doing, and I think it shows. Oh well. Practice makes perfect, I suppose.
...and it only took me 4,000 words to get to the point.
I've also been watching genedefect play Last Remnant, and it's making my fingers itch. Moronic main character or not, the battle system looks really fascinating.
BTW, "moronic main character"? Not an exaggeration. There's this Japanese term that eclesis has discussed in the past: kuuki yome? Sort of like a social version of "get a clue" (pay attention to the atmosphere)? He's told by a Marquis to call him "David", and he calls him "Dave". DAVE.
And, thank you Coheed and Cambria. Nice, soft music, kind of sad-love-song vibe... and the lyrics? "I'll do anything for you / kill anyone for you"
