No glitch, but not all that impressive, either.  :(

There is a concern for safety, but his lack of outrage at O'Connor 's comment shows that he will risk it for additional money.

You need a rewrite Thvor, the airport really is under attack, he isn't flying anywhere today, he can be convinced to overlook the weight problem with a bribe though.

hey all,

I'm back, tired but still alive. :)  Now I have to sort through 3500 or so pictures.

I've managed to read most of the posts, so catching up will be fairly easy.  I would also like to thank HydroRaven for playing Sammy during my absence.  I really enjoyed those posts.

I hope that you had a nice time on vacation.  I will be off to the Caribbean for almost two weeks starting on the  15th of this month.  I should have connectivity, though.

Welcome back Farothel, hope you had a great time on your vacation.

And that vacation sounds really nice, MM :)

Updated. I guess I mis-read your comment about the concern for safety/him being willing to "risk it". I thought you were saying that he could be persuaded to take off today.

On the up side (for Sam's wallet), a baggage fee should be significantly less than hazard pay. :D

Or even less if he can convince Jane that these fees fall under her jurisdiction ;)

I'm not sure if I can make an airplane invisible, but from what I've checked in the rules, improved invisibility is a physical spell and therefore it can affect non-living objects.  So I think it should be possible.  The same goes with Stealth.

Edit: if it doesn't, I'll adapt my post or just say they have rockets with radar homing systems or something like that, against which invisibility won't help.

Sam's going to defer to Jane on this one. She's paying the bills, after all.

Also, I'm out camping with my son's Boy Scout troop this weekend, so will be limited in how much I can do.

No, it doesn't work that way, that passage basically means that your invisibility works on cameras,  I suppose it is possible to make a spell that would do that, but it doesn't exist yet.

OK, I've modified my post.  I've reread the concealment power and for that it's specifically stated it works ' to hide something that people are looking for'.  So for me that means it can also work on objects.

That would probably work, the problem would be convincing the pilot to risk it, and even if you made it, you have no idea what kind of a war zone you would be landing in on the ground.
