Where do you guys think Blackjack fits here? I'm thinking 3 or high 2.
Okay, first off, unicorns are normal people in FiM, therefore they are the base level of... er, superness. You have to recalibrate the scale for the setting.

The answer really depends on whether you count equipment as a superpower. If not, she's a solid 2. Her only real power is regeneration/repair, with fingers as an odd bonus little. Eating metal and such are required secondary powers. She's strong, but not stronger than the strongest pony. (Like Captain America, she gets to be stronger, faster, and tougher all at once where a normal would need to focus on one of those at the expense of the others.)

If you do take equipment as part of her powers, the PipBuck provides a +1 upgrade. I don't, though, any more than I would count a gun or armor.

I'd factor her Pipbuck in, since removing it is very hard short of cutting the leg off(not in Sanguine's or a Pipbuck tech's case), and it acts almost as a cybernetic device.

One of the reasons I really (really) like PH is because it constantly reminds us about a truth that so many programs and stories forget (although FOE does remember it, just not as prominently). Loss is not death. In the Hoof, being crushed by the bad guys usually means something far worse than death. Littlepip's scars and injuries come from battles won. There's nothing wrong with this- and I do remember some losses for her too. But on the whole her failures could never measure up to her victories. Blackjack... lost. Her team lost. Everybody has met an end that other (less brilliant) works would write off or mix with arbitrary death for a miserable ending. Instead they walk away, and carry more loss than any dead hero.

Oh, and IIRC 'Pip said that they tasted like somepony tried to make it orange flavored, but despite or because of that it was still nauseating. Blackjack likes the orangyness, while everypony else hates it, but it's still orangy.

I think I'll do that, though I'm unsure of what I can offer. And... yeah, I'll accept orange then.

SilentCarto wrote:I wonder what the line of succession is for the OIA... was Garnet first in line? Horse is probably either dead in the Redoubt or locked outside. Or a drooling vegetable in his suspension pod, with Garnet running everything in his name. Either way.

Or tearing up the Hoof in search of EC-1101. I don't really have much reason to assume Horse is the screaming madness in Hoofington's security system (other than being a fitting punishment for someone so desperate to get in the game) but it will remain my theory until further notice.
However, that last idea rings more true to what I imagine of Garnet. We haven't seen much of her, but she doesn't seem like someone who would do the legwork if they were the one pulling the strings...

Just wondering if you all ever thought of mirroring the story on fimfiction? Cause GoogleDocs isn't quite as android friendly for adjusting the text for reading. Just a suggestion. :3

GDocs is unfriendly towards Google's Android OS? Irony! Applebloom Anyway, IIRC I think that Somber wants to finish the whole thing before uploading it to other sites, but I might be confusing Somber with Kkat...

The idea's occurred. However, as I understand it, no simple, direct, automatic system, and doing it manually would be far too much of a hassle.

Also, I'm really surprised to learn that Google Docs and Android don't play well together; that seems like a ridiculous oversight.

I... don't even know how to apologize for this. My brain goes weird places sometimes. In this case, my brother was supposing that getting all her souls eaten might be the only way to kill Rampage.

Oh, no no no. The Cyberdaemon looks like a rogue AI to me. I think the signal coming from the Redoubt is the "green" computer -- the one that entered through the security hub at Hippocratic and twisted like a snake to evade Dealer's counter-hack.

I deem this pure win but going back to a previous conversation would probably bring Blackjack to Super Weight of 5.
I want to see a pony version of TTGL with PH ponies now.

Oh...kay. It appears that a section of posts at the end of the last thread broke off, the last thread got locked, and this new thread grew from the posts that broke off. Why and how this happened I have not idea. I suppose that I'll just change my bookmark and wait for word from someone in the forum administration.
