@SamJaz said:

@paladin: Sigh. Eleventh knows what technology you're using. Altair doesn't. Eleventh has no reason to respond to or defend against threats or abilities that Altair doesn't know about, even if he himself does, as a writer.

That sounds like you're just backpedaling.
You previously claimed that Eleventh had to assume I'm using thermal vision.
He should not, if he actually read my post.
Whatever Altair tried to sneak past me doesn't matter in this aspect.
Yes, realistically he could've thought of escaping heat sensors.
Except then he shouldn't have written down the results because he as the writer should've been aware it won't work.
Seriously, how hard is this to get?
I can forgive Eleventh's mistakes but it's a fact he wrote the stealth equivalent of an auto-hit.
An auto-hit which of course would've never been possible.

@SamJaz said:

@paladin: Well, from the information we as readers and writers have, hiding your heat is useless. But Altair, in that position, would have had no reason to suspect that Lynx had information above a heat sensor.

Again, did you actually read the post?
Because the method of detection was stated clearly. Both in the post and in my own bio.
Also your previous post made absolutely no sense because you implied as if the one who was using technolog was Altair. 
Seriously, you seem to be pretty damn confused.

@paladin: To be fair, tactics used to hide ones presence doesn't necessarily defend you against the technology being used. If someone's willingly obscuring their own vision I'd assume that my best bet was to defend against heat vision. Personally. A reasonable assumption.

What are you talking about?
It seems like you read something else that was written there.

@Eleventh: Maybe if you haven't gotten everthing wrong.
Like using heat vision to locate somebody in a Sneaking Suit specifically against it. Or many other detection means. 
Granted, my bio never explicitly told it hides from heat detection  though it should've been obvious.
Similarly it's useless to try escaping heat vision when the Soliton Radar explicitly detects life by their bio-electromagnetic signals. Said both in the bio and the actual RP.
Oh well, you somehow also assumed that I threw a second smoke grenade when it was merely the expansion of the first one, so I guess you just barely skimmed through my post.

I think Altair's plans for ambush are about to backfire horribly.
Lynx can't even count how many people tried to beat him in the game of hide&seek.
You could say his equipment is edged exactly for this.

"Huh?" For a moment Lynx thought his shots were on their mark but then the target suddenly disappeared.
In one instant Lynx could clearly feel the opponent's presence and then in another he was just... gone.
Momentarily Lynx was surprised but that was far from being the first time an opponent tried to pull this tactic.
Lynx immediately examined the AP Sensor of his Soliton Radar.
Detecting the bio-electromagnetic waves and motion vibrations, the device pin-pointed the assailant's location at once, displayed on an accurate digital map.
The enemy was close to the spot Lynx first saw him.
Judging by his speed and the faintness of the motion vibrations Lynx had already deduced the enemy's objective.
He was trying to sneak up on Lynx!
(Well, two can play this game!)
With that notion Lynx suddenly lunged himself into the thickening smoke screen.
He didn't use smoke grenades merely as distraction. Lynx was a veteran soldier who thought several steps ahead.
By the time his enemy would react it'd be already too late.
Lynx disappeared in the smoke and then immediately camouflage himself with the use of HoloCamo, seemingly becoming one with his surroundings.
Meanwhile the smoke would quickly fill the entire arena, reducing visibility to almost nothing.
Using this confusion, the AP Sensor and his near-invisibility with the HoloCamo, Lynx was planning to ambush his ambusher.
The magazine of his modified M9 still had 12 tranquilizer bullets in them, enough to knock out even a blue whale.
As soon as he would find the perfect moment Lynx was planning to snipe down the enemy with this near-soundless pistol, with aim to disable him as swiftly as possible.

And in return, I may abuse time travel. But that's okay, there are judges ready to demerit me for every time skip that counts as a no-sell. Did that one I just made count as a no-sell? Probably. That's why we have judges to point and laugh at me.

Depends on viewpoint.
If I were you I would've tried to find a way to avoid the 3 darts. Yet you actually took one.
also I didn't mentioned this before so good judgement to try something against the poison quickly.
As you can expect these tranquilizers can normally knock out a grown man in a few seconds. Granted if they hit a major blood vessel. Otherwise the effects are slower or just partial.
 
Anyways, like I said, you surprisingly did sell that shot.
Of course it kinda deduces from the fact that you rewinded time soon thereafter but hey, that's just part of your powerset.
You specifically warned me of that ability so I was prepared for you to use it some time.
Not this earl, though.
But again, that's part of your powers.
It just happens you were forced to use your trump card a bit early.
I doubt this would count as no selling.
Then again, it'll be up to Vapovile and Kuma's decision later.
Not mine.

A bit late to note, but yeah.
Posted.
 
Also if you wonder why Codec works when FOX can't even locate Lynx via GPS, that's because:
  1. Codec is a surprisingly advanced tech far ahead of its time, even moreso than the Soliton Radar
  2. Lynx is in a dream world where all his abilities and equipment are allowed, the Codec conversations are just part of his dream

Oh, and don't be surprised if Lynx has more equipment and weapons than what should be reasonable.
He has 4-dimensional pockets and other BS.
So when Lynx pulls an entire rocket launcher behind the empty space of his back... just roll with it, okay?
I already informed Eleventh about the abilities I have yet to cover in my bio.
Including this.

RPG » [ DK ] Who the hell are you!? [ Lynx Vs Altair ]

Lacuna Lynx fell into his bed after a particularly hard mission. He may had just saved the world, again. Lynx felt exhausted but this was a good kind of exhaustion. Normally he was haunted by nightmares. Past battlefields, horrific experiences, fears of the future to come and the likes. Lynx saw too many way too often. His only cure for a peaceful sleep was to engross himself in work, only resting when his body was at its limits. It wasn't a healthy practice, Lynx knew it. But that was his only way to maintain his personal peace.
It only took a few moments and Lynx fell into deep slumber...
 
" ! " Suddenly Lynx woke up, finding himself in full mission gear in a completely unfamiliar scene.  He found himself in a world of fire and brimstone with the only safe zone seemingly being the metal platform Lynx stood on. Although 'safe' was a relative word because on closer examination this platform was found atop a thin brimstone cliff with only four heavy chains offering some extra support. Things didn't look too bright for Lynx. By reflex he turned on the Codec to ask his superior.
[ RING-RING! RING-RING!]
 
LYNX: Colonel! Where the hell am I!? 
COLONEL: ... Well, from the looks of it, Lynx, you are in Hell.
LYNX: Like I buy that superstitious stuff! Is this the interior of an active volcano? Come on! 
COLONEL: I don't know! We've lost your GPS signal. Wherever you are it isn't on Earth. Any guesses?
LYNX: Nope. I just suddenly woke up here. It's like somebody used magic or something...
 
In that moment Lynx got a new idea. He called the frequency of Natalia Kaminski, magus hunter and FOX's resident expert on supernatural.
NATALIA: You called?
LYNX: Natalia, what's going on?
NATALIA: You seem to be transfered to another dimension, Lynx.
LYNX: Great. So how did I end here? Last time I remember I was about to sleep...!
NATALIA: Exactly. You are in dream world! 
LYNX: Dream world? This!? No thanks, I'd rather stick with my nightmares.
NATALIA: *chuckles* The world of dreams reflects one's conscious. It can take up any shape.
LYNX: So why does it look like an arena out of hell!?
NATALIA: Maybe you should ask that man over there. Be careful! I sense powerful demonic aura emanating from him!

 Lynx stood up and looked at the man in front of him. He wore armor above his casual clothes and his facial features were hidden under a white hood. His arsenal seemed to be composed of a pair of pistols and swords. Like Natalia said, the man had an eerie dangerous aura about him. Lynx was better to be careful!
Suddenly Lynx observed a red glow as a pair of blades were summoned to the man's wrists out of thin air. 
Before Lynx realized the man already leaped high into the air.
(He's fast!)
Thought Lynx. He wouldn't get any chance to relax.
On the other hand the opponent seemed way too confident in his skills. Trying to drop his weight to immobilize Lynx for a killing blow? Way too obvious!
Lynx stepped out of his opponent's reach and at the same time he dropped a smoke grenade.
Following the confusion Lynx jumped back while grabbing his silenced Beretta M9.
While momentarily in the air he aims with the pistol and pulls the trigger three times, shooting 3 tranquilizer darts in order to neutralize his enemy.

That being said, SamJaz planted a bug in my ear with the comment that the arena changed a bit for each battle.
That's why I didn't mention any details about the tournament grounds, neither posted that Cell Games picture.
Since I left the OP to Eleventh he's also free to choose how would the arena actually look like.
I expect some kinda hellish environment with crimson flames and the arena grounds being the only solid footing.
Oh well, we'll see.

@Vapovile:
Lynx's infiltration & stealth methods are borderline bullshit.
Don't think about Sam Fisher style sneaking (albeit he can do that, too).
Think of somebody getting past you while hiding in a cardboard box... in the middle of the jungle.
Mind his father who made entire mini tanks with silenced grenade launcher as cannon, all out of cardboard, and used it to sneak past the enemy.
Or how his father recruited an entire army by kidnapping people with balloons. Apparently with the help of an expert counselor.
I tell you that, ridiculous bullshit runs deep in his family.

Abyssofpride, I guess.
 
Next:
  
  
I usually don't add comments to the themes but there you go.
This theme played when you were forced to fight against a giant robot alone.
Said robot had a plethora of weapons and were about to launch a nuke.
Worse,  you only had a few minutes to destroy it, otherwise the events would've lead to all-out nuclear war.
So yeah, think of this kind of atmosphere.

Serena Tsukino » was eternal sailormoon galaxy busting feat a hyperbole or real

Eternal sailor Moon didn't destroy the galaxy, she can control it or something.
Her prior form though was capable of destroying the Galactic Cauldron which is makes up a fairly large portion of the entire galaxy.
So that's pretty damn energetic way above the destruction of one or even many hundreds of solar systems at once.

Altair and Lynx fight in the dream world, under the rules of Dream Kombat.
Neither Altair nor Lynx met the other before, never even heard about each other.
Yet they meet in the world of dreams, forced to a battle of life and death.

General Discussion » Memorial Day: Recommend War Themed Anime Series

@takashichea
I second Barefoot Gen and the Cockpit.
Aside from that it depends on your mileage what you actually consider war themed series.
Macross Frontier for example is all about the war against the bug-like Vajra...except it involves pop stars, singing, love triangles and...did I mention singing?
So yeah, could you be a bit more specific?
Are you looking for "hardcore" war themed series (well, mostly movies and short films because you can't get a TV show out of these) or "fantasy war" themed series also count? 
Actually, I'd put the "bug war" type series in a different category. These feature an enemy so alien that many of the moral issues of war become mundane.

Basically, how strong you want the theme of war?

RPG » Sentō o Yumemite - DREAMING KOMBAT

 @SamJaz said:

A battle of wits rather than character's might, DREAMING KOMBAT is different from an RP in that is has judges and additional rules on it.

Matches take place in an a large arena, made of unbreakable and unbendable metal about forty-metres square, with a platform about thirty-metres square sat atop the square. At each corner of the outer square there is a tall pillar, perhaps seventeen metres tall, all made of this same indestructible metal.

are you sure you didn't want to write 400 and 300 meters square there, respectively?
Actually, asuming the arena is 20x20m in dimensions is the best.
 But well, I suppose it matters little in RP when you're only at the edge of the ring when you want to.
Still, it helps visualizing things and allows less space for potential bitching.
Haven't checked out the matches so I don't know if this previously came up during a fight.

@Eleventh: Sure let's give this a try.
Albeit keep in mind that my character bio is only partially done.
I have a certain "power" which may be a concern for your character during this match.
Okay, make it two.
I could tell you these in advance via PM, though.

This would apparently help saving the world or something along those lines.
So the usual deal.
