    Nah, Li is probably too nice for that. The ominous part is all Lassus

    @SAF @ID Zeta @Jupjami @WavePearl @122 Generation

    Heya! So life is currently beating the crap out of Lassus, and I'll be gone for a while next week - I won't have time to write the long posts I'd like. So yeah, consider Luminous on pause for a bit. If Lassus updates next week, I'm allowing y'all to talk to Li and all while I'm gone and I'll see what happened when I'm back/if I have to adjust anythin.

    Aight see yall

    If you're traveling, safe travels. If you're not feeling good, I hope you feel better. If you're working on real life projects, good luck.

    I figured I should come in and just fill peeps in. I lost my closest irl friends today, as well as been awake for 38-39 hours so far. About had a heart attack earlier and also had to deal with a fire. I’m living in a sims4 game I fucking swear.

    I’m so sorry for my delays

    Had a short discussion with Lassus, so I'm gonna post first. I won't make my next post for possibly ten days for now, to let the drop kind of smooth over and let Li re-enter the scene so she can make her decision here too.

    Also, reminder for @ID Zeta - Ando still has the mysterious letter he picked up in the bandits' camp.

    Actually, I have to ask about this:
    How does Juayang's currency work? I'm sure Elio and Ando are bound to touch on that in their lives, being locals and all.

    It's most comparable to Chinese yuan (one qin to one yuan), and they're coins. Traditionally they do have holes in the center, though this is really more for weight than the ancient string method given how many one person carries at a time. They're not incredibly heavy or anything, and we're running on hammerspace logic when it comes to large amounts of qin.

    Oh, and for the recent post, about the whole major injuries (limb loss level) and dying thing. Your characters are safe from either. I've signed my DM contract to not kill your characters here, and I'm not going back on that.

    That’s a relief. And here I thought we would go Fire Emblem mode where if a character dies - that’s it. And if the hero dies - gg.

    If you remember the poll I set up earlier for all of us? Y'all voted "no death for our characters unless we're stupid (and you warned us) otherwise we just get KO'd and lose". If you guys roll so bad you genuinely party wipe, it'll be on me to keep the story running logically.

    Mind you, though! Death is still a content warning in the RP itself. I did list it as a warning and you guys voted "ok but no gore or crazy stuff and preferably offscreen".

    Ah yes. We’re still at the mercy of the RNG. Suppose death is kind of like the Fire Emblem style here (and I imagine there will be death quotes when a character falls, or something)
