Considering the area of the dome in the previous map, you could cover an entire floor with less than a move action so unless you move through more than 2 floors or end up underground where the area of the facility may be much larger than the dome on the surface, you can probably pull it off.

I am generally of the opinion that PSO architects have a large-scale grudge against stairs, because you have a huge, mostly level floor, and only two teleporters to connect it to other places.
Woah. I think you're on to something.
Maybe its part of their design paradigm. You're a joke if you build anything but teleporters to go around, and teleporters aren't cheap so you can only make so many.

If you think about it, stairs could be one of Ammy's worst enemies. Good thing they're extinct.

How would stairs be the worst enemy of someone that defaults to flying? :O

Teleporters are the proper way to change floors in this era.  Not as random or as clumsy as stairs; an elegant transport for a more civilized age. :p

@osle: I got the numbers for all the changes done. Figured one of the materials was utterly redundant so I dropped the feat.
However, I'm considering the Relief material that grants some kind of burrow movement speed that leaves a relief image on the surface of the ground when you are right under it. Considering this is future-tech time and we are supposed to take the closest we have in dnd to represent future technology, is that burrow movement able to go through metal?
Depends. If you were in an underground facility where in usual D&D terms you would be expecting the walls and ceiling to be made of stone, yes. But in a large tower that's suposed to be made of wood and brick and masonry, no.

Otherwise curious why it grants concealment instead of cover.
Concealment is something that prevents an attacker from clearly seeing his or her target while cover is a barrier between an attacker and defender. Being more than partially underground gives a layer to go through to hit the burrowed creature but you can clearly see the target (because of the relief).
I believe the idea is more that you look like part of the surface you're burrowing into, thus concealment because it's harder to tell where the half-golem actually is.

The ash/sand ones are nice too but they seem to affect the user as well. Not sure if the mud material leaves mud behind when you fly, which maybe falls down on people under (which would be sorta funny and pretty darn useful).
The mud remains impregnated with whatever flying trick you're using and thus floating in mid-air for its duration.

You can, however, get trapped by a power cut this way. :p

I think I found a solution to my lack of Speed.  :lol
Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

Does Baha really fit between those wings? XD

Oh well, not like it matters. Amaterasu has an elephant as a light load. :p

Well, in his human form she is Medium sized and you are Gargantuan.

Just don't ask for directions ;)

Amaterasu is currently Medium, though.

... also, at full size she's Colossal. It's the mecha that's Gargantuan.* :P

*Because of this, I guess it means you could pilot her mecha with a mecha, and if Lunatic Vanguard is involved you could have a mecha in a mecha in a mecha?

You can tell what Amaterasu's response to a locked door is going to be, can't you? VALOUR FULL ATTACK FULL ATTACK. :lmao

Unless... would this share a Break DC with a normal D&D Iron Door or something? :O

Pf. Take Hugo with you. :lmao Oh, invisible, I see.

Aaaaanyway, the highest DC given for breaking a door by sudden force is Iron (after 'Strong'), so I'm wondering if this is that sort of door or tougher. XD

My natural response to an impenetrable door is usually to blast through the more penetrable wall.  :p
If not to go right through it, to gain access to the mechanisms within.

Hm. Detail I'm wondering about: A Doll Judgement adept can channel his maneuvers through his dolls, but can he channel his  maneuvers if they are Ancient Temple maneuvers? They can only be done with youkai blades and your dolls don't have them.
Must they have youkai blades of their own to channel them or can you use your maneuvers and just channel their effect through the dolls, since you are the puppeteer and you technically are the one initiating them?

If you want to channel them through an immortal/special doll, is it the same? Mostly because I don't think they can die of old age and get the Netherworld Gardener feat themselves. Unless we get them the Alternate Form monstrous feat at 1st level to have their true form changed to an animal or humanoid one, which can perhaps qualify.
