The actual Conservative rally only had a permit for 100 people and maybe got that. The bigger story is the approximately 15,000 counter-protesters who also showed up.

Not sure if it already works this way, but 'scrambling' should take into account how far you've fallen, then reduce the fall damage at the bottom by one room.

i.e. 3 room fall, you scramble on the first room and take some damage based off falling one room before the scramble, then at the bottom you take damage as if you've fallen 2 rooms.

Or something like that.

I spent the whole day like 5 minutes from the rally park and I think I saw like two people with signs.. I don't know how the news reported it but it was a pretty well contained event and I think it was over by noon.

Me: Let's start our visit of Boston by walking the Freedom Trail beginning at the Boston Common park ...

Oh. Are you fucking kidding me ...

Don't wake Swan.

Thought this was a Fallout 4 reference at first. I'd forgotten about the protests. Heh.

So.... Who all is coming? I'm actually gonna be a performer this year. Doing our Star Trek puppet show in the Star Trek Track room at the Hilton on Saturday at 1PM.

I'll also be at on-site registration all day Thursday and Friday morning.

Anyone want to hang out local to the con? I'm not really up for driving at all anywhere.

Scramble is a risk, because you've already fallen. Lots of other skills don't even give you a second chance, I see no problem with scramble being a risky move because it should be used in life or death situations.

As a little experiment I checked my logs for all instances of scrambling, they were pretty rare, and most my successes were with my characters most skilled in climbing which actually had a solid rate of success.

You can do this experiment yourself if you have logs, just use this cmd line from your logs folder to put all instances into a file, I threw the AAA at the front of the file name so it would be empty when it was searched and this command will also search all sub-files for those that organize this way.

findstr /s /i scramble *.txt > AAA_ScrambleResults.txt

You can then search that file for "but find nothing" and "and stop the fall" respectively to take a look at your successes and failures.

Cheers :)
