Obviously he isn't going to get up and smack the shit out of the intruder, but could he spare some of his psychic power to delete the intruder?
This is also disregarding the Custodes, who would probably handle the issue before anyone got to him, just Big E VS an intruder.
Aside from obviously being defended by the Custodes and whatnot, what is the danger of being close to the Emperor when he is in the throne room in the state that he is in?
So I'm on my 2nd read of the Regents Shadow, and the glorious bastard Chris Wraight, who is swiftly becoming my favourite BL author, has this tiny, minute excerpt which COULD be there to explain how poorly a Custodians capabilities and battle has been handled due to the massive amount of authors who have attempted to showcase them. However I am not saying that was actually his intent.
Context: Valerian, his squad of Custodes, and the Imperial Fists of Tor Garadon are slaughtering their way through the outer defences of a Chaos cult, who pose no real threat to them at all thus far.
"I kept Gnosis unkindled, using the blade as a bayonet where necessary and leaving its ammunition in the chamber. Unlike Garadon’s warriors, we Custodians fought using the bare minimum of force in such circumstances, matching our effort to the calibre of those we faced. "
This may be intended to show that those cases in which a lone Astartes defeats a Custodian (for example, Garro or Argel Tal) is a matter of the Custodian underestimating their opponent, while also showing how they can carve a path through tons of other Space Marines all at once (for example, the quiet Custodian in The First Heretic who doesnt even break a sweat at killing enough Word Bearers to form a mound) with a "good" in universe explanation.
Also sidenote the best thing about the return of the Custodes is that now whenever my friends try to argue about who would win between a Halo Spartan or an Astartes I can go "Doesn't matter, a Custodian will win against either"
before you downvote me, hear me out
I'm not saying that it was good, it was quite a bad season. But it did have moments that nailed it IMO. BTW this is story-wise. Nothing to do with the VFX, acting or editing. Personally the best bits are:
Brienne being knighted
Podrick singing Jenny of Oldstones
and Sam's first meeting with Daenerys
Hi, Javi Marcos here, admin of Los Siete Reinos, biggest website in Spanish about ASOIAF, and second in the world behind Westeros.org.
Thanks to Random House Spain I was able to interview James Hibberd, the only journalist with total access to GOT filming, the source of the main exclusives of GOT spinoffs and author of Fire can not kill a dragon. If you are more interested in the book and you understand Spanish, we did a videopodcast of La Canción Continúa, first Spanish podcast about ASOIAF re-reading, about the book https://youtu.be/DvVPTApws74
James did an AMA on Reddit a few months ago, but after the book was published in Spain I was finally able to ask him my own questions. I have to say I asked bold questions about George R.R. Martin, ASOIAF adaptation, D&D, or the ending of the show, and he answered everything.
Here is the interview in Spanish, in two parts, but I will publish all the original questions and answers in English
Thank you so much for your interest! The idea came about shortly before the series ended. I had written hundreds, if not more than a thousand, stories covering Game of Thrones, but they were all very specific to a scene or a performance or a season. There was nothing out there that told the whole story of making Thrones from beginning to end with new quotes from the creators, cast and crew – and it’s an incredibly fascinating story.
I was so paranoid about spoilers. I bought a separate laptop to work on Thrones content, I kept all my recordings, interviews and notes in an encrypted folder (and once forgot the password – which made for a terrifying 24 hours), and I wouldn’t put any spoiler-filled stories into EW’s system until after... keep reading on reddit ➡
For something as powerful as she is, I just hope she gets treated as such. Not just another pushover story mission boss like Eramis. It feels like being a raid boss is that treatment she deserves, like Oryx.
I began playing Destiny 2 in November 2018. While I can’t remember the date I first logged on, I remember running through the Red War campaign with my brother, who introduced me to the game, and being completely lost because he was overleveled for everything. Curse of Osiris, Warmind, and Forsaken played out in a similar fashion. Since then, I’ve played on and off, returning for the underwhelming seasons and taking a break during the good ones. Such is life.
I left about halfway through Season of Arrivals because raiding was bad for my mental health, and didn’t come back until after Beyond Light had released. Once again, I don’t remember the exact date, but I made my return in November 2020, with the intent to defeat Dûl Incaru in a one-person fireteam. And on January 31, 2021, I succeeded. And then I told my brother.
At this point, the average gamer might wonder why I’m so excited about beating the Shattered Throne solo. But I am not the average gamer. There are two crucial distinctions that set me apart from average gamers everywhere, landing me in a class where few belong and fewer still remain. See, I’m bad at video games. Really bad. Destiny 2’s aim assist isn’t enough to salvage my headshot accuracy, I have the reaction times of a drunk and about the same situational awareness, and I’ve deleted more god rolls than I care to count. But I keep trying anyway.
Hey, it’s worked out so far.
First, I had to acquire the proper gear. Adored and Lament were easy enough. Anarchy and Heritage took more time. The Beyond Light campaign gifted me some nifty new Darkness powers and a Long Shadow, I had a good Escape Velocity in my Vault, and once I found out that the New Light quest awards a curated Night Watch, I had my favorite scout rifle with the new logo in the top right corner. Which doesn’t actually make it new content, but that’s been talked to death already, and while I’ve deluded myself into thinking I can write, I can’t delude myself into thinking I can make that subject interesting again. And of course, I had the Recluse. The sun may have set on its reign, but just like the British Empire, its loyalists will continue acting like it’s still relevant for the rest of time.
Next, I had to decide whether to run on Warlock or Hunter. I chose the latter so I could crutch on invisibility, and because I’m awful at platforming and Hunter has the most forgiving double-jump.
With my equipment in order and my class chosen, it was time to take on the Shattered T... keep reading on reddit ➡
