So I just read through Jasmine's Abstraction, and a thought occured to me.

An average car has a mass of 4079 pounds, or about 1850 kilograms. Therefore an average car driving at 30 miles per hour (about 13.5 metres per second) would have 405kgm/s of momentum. An average human head has a mass of 5 kilograms, so 405kgm/s of momentum added to that head would give it a velocity of 81 metres per second. Impact force is the change in velocity divided by the time it took for that change to take place. However, the change in momentum applied by Jasmine's Abstraction is theoretically instantaneous anyway, so even a tiny addition to or subtraction from momentum in an object would (again, theoretically) cause infinite impact force. Practically speaking though, "instantaneous" does not exist, only very fast. But say the change in momentum took a tenth of a second. In the example above, that's still 810 Newtons of impact force, and that's from a relatively slow moving car. Think about what could be done with, say, a train.

Just a heads up for y'all, but I will be tied up for much of this weekend and likely won't have a chance to post. So, uh, I'll catch up with the gang and our sweet baby God-Kid when I can.

@Ciaran Yeah, there's a lot of potential with Jasmine's power. It's why I'm glad that one of her limits is that she can't directly affect the Awakened, she'd be able to instant gib the bad guys too easily otherwise. Though, while she theoretically can steal and give any amount of momentum, it isn't always practical to do so. She can only affect complex objects as a whole, which is why her mountain presence upgrade lets her target specific bits. Because of this, the inside of whatever she's targeting is still going (though I'm gonna say there are special exceptions so I can cover my bases if need be), meaning blood is still pumping within an organic body, passengers within a moving vehicle are subject to whiplash and everything else that would occur if it suddenly stopped, and vehicles would technically have all their functions still operating.

So basically, it would cause some serious destruction to steal momentum from a car, let alone from a train. If Jasmine were a little more amoral, it possibly wouldn't be a problem for her, but if she knew what the consequences were for doing something like that she'd likely refuse unless it was a desperate situation. The safest way for her to use her Abstraction would be for small scale and/or simple things, though of course that's not going to get her a whole lot of momentum a lot of the time. Figuring out that sweet spot is going to be key for her in order for her to reach her max potential.

I would post, but I'm gonna wait for some more reactions to the dream scene before I move that along, and I want to wait for @Ciaran before I post as Jordan/Kim.

I want to make a post, but I want to wrap up the "God-Child" scene with one more post, so I'll wait for Fern or Atrophy before I post.

EDIT: I'll definitely post tomorrow.

You should. The earliest I will post will be late tomorrow night. The gist of it would be Penny being all "hell yeah we walk with boy god" while Billy and Rita would be a bit more uncertain.

Sorry that some questions went unanswered... I didn't want to reveal too much, too soon - and I probably already revealed too much already - so I just kept it brief and vague.

Hi it me - the random dude is back at it again. I wasn't sure on how to continue with the story without having David being a nosy bugger and checking the room though considering the current predicament I tried to hold off on posting until the god-child vision was wrapped up. Sorry I should have said this sooner :/

@Surtr Inc Don't think I'll be able to get a post up until Sunday (exam tomorrow morning, people over the weekend) so just feel free to move on without that. I may get a short one done tomorrow afternoon but I dunno how likely that is

I forgot to say that me and Zomb are working on a brief-ish collab for the support group... uh group. That's why I only posted from two POVs.

I should also get around to updating things like relations, NPCs, and the character lists.
