Facts about the Falls

Post  Samuel Timmons on Sat Jul 27, 2013 12:54 am

 Not to detract from the very interesting Challenge between Pipe and the Silver fang....

But The Fast Human Swimmers doing their sprint swims do 5.25 to 6 MPH...

The Speed of the Falls at Peak Day light averages between 48 MPH and 62 MPH a bit less at night do to Volume of water being put into the resivours and the Tourists cant see that the falls has been turned into a drizzle by comparisson.

The Actual Results of Even a Garou trying to Swim and hold their own  within 100' of the Edge of the Falls is they take 3 or 4 strokes and then they are trying to swim upstream against gravity....

Ok I will not take my cold hard facts and get out of your Fantasy Game...

If Supernatural can distort the time difference drive wise between Buffalo and NYC, we can swim up stream in a LARP.

 If you have Gift of the Fish Maybe.... but neither of you look Uktena or are in a pack with say Neptune or some other water spirit.   If Metaphysics had been involved I would agree but you two just stayed in Homid and SWAM pure Physics against Inertia in a truely overwhelming Volume....
Canadian Falls
Length of brink: 2600 feet / 792.4 meters
Height: 167 feet / 50.9 meters
Volume of water: 600,000 U.S. gallons / 2,271,247 liters per second

US Falls

Length of brink: 1060 feet /323.08 meters
Height: 176 feet / 53.6 meters (due to rocks at the base actual fall is 70 feet/ 21.3 meters)

Observation.  If the challenge had happened in the Prime Material, they both would have gone over, with a test or two to see if they could grab onto something on shore. I'm well aware of how fast that current is. Smile They only had a chance because Things Are Different in the Umbra.

*chuckles*  points....   Before you can award points you have to be doing this at least as long as Iggy who is only in his late 30's and pretending to be a were wolf.  Those of us who are nearly 50 well we can simply blame it all on Alhzheimers.

Actually I am in my very early 30's. And don't be jealous of my old PCs, it is unbecoming a man of your very... very advanced years.

I suppose I could take this chance to thank charles for showing us how people played werewolf back in the day.... say, what were Mr. Chaney and Mr. Lugosi like?

I'll say nothing about this discussion except this;

Wes, you are not "the Silver Fang". I am. Have been for 9 months. You are "the new Silver Fang" or "A Silver Fang". Not THE.

Chaney always got bonus XP for makeup, but he would totally steal your food if you left it out.  Lugosi was all about the PvP, but could never get the combos right.  It was Charlie Chaplain you really had to watch out for.  Bastard was silent, but deadly.

Of course, back then, we hadn't invented scissors or paper yet, so everyone threw "rock."  It got kinda tedious.

John, please scroll up to the beginning of the post and realize that, since you did not engage in a challenge with Sewer Pipe, they were not referring to you.  It was described as the Challenge between Pipe and the Silver Fang.  Before escalating your tension, please read the posts and place it into context.
