Previous thread:

You head to bed, crawling in with Lin, Liz, and Breakfast. You're not too tired, but it's late enough that you could sleep. After tossing and turning for a bit, you're out.

When you wake up two hours later, Lin is gone and Selene is snuggled up on your chest.

What do you do now?

You decide that now is as good of a time as any to work on augmenting yourself. After all, most everyone is asleep and you're not likely to get interrupted. You ease Selene off of you and get up before climbing up to your gym. You take a seat, light some incense, and start meditating.

I recall a lin sheet update that had like 1/4 sleep+nutrition+focus 1 i think when we had, like, working on our second augment.

Not just taht. I figured out why Its so wierd for us.

We're a girl - inside, mentally -, but we don't have a pussy. We don't know what it feels like. We don't have that critical bit of femininity missing - and that was our first taste of actually HAVING one.

The reason we liked it so much is because it filled in a missing piece of who we should have been.

THATS why its making max all confused.

Reading the pastebin, I have come upon the notion that there could be an actual trick to ringing the bells.
Tesla's Harmonic Resonance. We won't even have to hit it very hard if we can move fast and accurately enough to strike in time with the wave. Just let the wave from the previous strike go through the bell and when it gets back to the same point, strike again, increasing the magnitude of the wave. Do that for a minute or so and we can have the bell giving off a constant tone, even if we still had normal strength.
Just a little testing for a few minutes to get the rhythm right is all we'd need.

Just so you guys understand, the reason Alexander Lee developed the custom martial art for superhumans is that, once you read a certain level of strength, speed, and toughness, fighting on Earth becomes like fighting on the Moon, or even somewhere with even worse traction and gravity. That and the fact that your augmentations don't give you comic book-style super strength - you probably can't ever pick up a car unless you're very careful simply because your hands will tear right through it from the car's weight, for example. All kinds of things like that lead to a complete reexamination of the underlying body mechanics in most martial arts in a brand new context. That's why there's a lot more planting and vertically-powered movement rather than radially-powered movement, a lot more standing grappling, and a lot less presumption on mass and stance being sufficient to keep from being moved. Does that make sense to you all?

Certainly, in fact I think Max and Liz ought to get some practical combatives and firearms training over break for this exact reason. If nothing else, efficiency is key in this setting, and firearms and tomahawks don't cause strain.

Yes, but it's somewhat less common in the outside world. You don't have much context for this, but the Scholomance is the premiere magical school in the world. Most people capable of magic are lucky to get one or two boxes of any given school in their life and certainly don't understand the theory behind it.

Absolutely, but with less of a focus on your own center of mass than Judo simply because your mass means little if your opponent is strong enough to hammer-toss a motor cycle. The ratio of strength/speed to mass/traction is one of the biggest things that gets accounted for in his custom style. Also the fact that, at a certain level of durability and strength, you can easily get pushed - or push - through a wall as long as you have proper bracing and traction against the ground. A lot of fundamental concepts get challenged when you get up to that kind of inhuman scale.

Mind you, Max is nowhere near that yet. With Body 4 + Strength 1, her Strength is only at human maximum potential, for example. That's why the martial art requires Strength 2, Speed 2, Durability 2 bare minimum before he can even begin teaching it.

Why? More mass means more force. We could at the very least up it to "heavy guy" or "sumo" levels, that'd mean more thant twice our weight, twice the force at least, without getting into the whole "whoops, I broke the floor again!" territory.

Maybe a non permanent thing.

You pick up Selene and give Liz a kiss and then a swat on the ass. You're pretty damn pleased by Liz, and Selene seems really happy to be held by you, putting her cheek on your shoulder and holding on tight. You head down into the basement level where, sure enough, your dad is still hard at work extending the wards.

"Hey, dad," you say.

"Hey, Max. Hello there, big girl," he says, giving both of you a grin. "What's up?"

"I managed to slim down all of the senses in the possession spell," you say proudly. "Now, I was wondering, do you have any advice for what stuff in the Word I should use to tattoo myself?"

"That's a hard question," your dad says, thinking. "Maybe the Paradox of Self - that's an approximation of its title, it's one part epic poem, one part philosophical manuscript. My favorite adaptation of it was when it was made into an opera and performed in the streets of Gomorrah by blind and vagrant philosopher-priests. It's about, in simplest terms, how the self doesn't exist as long as you're supplementing knowledge externally, but as soon as you stop taking in knowledge there's no space for the self to exist in relative to the not-self, so it ceases to exist entirely. That's what I would get myself tattooed with, anyway, if I was going to get covered in script. What sort of thing are you looking for, Max?"
