Aw I didn't know you were at RTX you should have told me I would have told you the room I was working.
Give me like two hours and I should narrow me down. I did find me in the picture taken above.

Give it about a month or two, and we will probably see the Adam trailer pop up sooner than later.
As a non-spoiler note, it seems like the fight choregraphy has improved a bit if it goes to shove for that trailer, even from a slight POV that is not normal.
Shout-out to Sienna's weapons, as they are rather kickass in their own way and were what I was hoping for. And I hope, it signals that we get to go back a little bit doing Time-Rewinds to Adam Pre-V1 to see more of his dynamic against Sienna, Blake, and Illia.

Yeah I keep seeing that repeated in the summaries I am reading which are by different people.
They wanted to prevent leaks as much as possible so they are shortening the time between con release and public release making it less attractive to post it.

I see it like this: Poison/venom causes damage as long as it remains in the body. So it's the equivalent of being stabbed by a foreign object. Aura can heal wounds, so long as the foreign object has been removed. It can't heal a stab wound if the knife is still there. Likewise, it probably can't heal the damage done by poison and venom so long as that poison or venom is still in the body. So it depends on Aura's ability to deal with the damage the poison causes until the body can get rid of the poison naturally.
However, like in Qrow's case, if the poison causes delirium, making it harder to concentrate, then aura might not figure in at all as the lack of being able to focus would prevent the user from activating their aura in the first place.

The point that I've been trying to make in regards to Yang's sparing being OOC for Adam is that the target of his anger, and thus his willingness to make his opponent suffer, is Blake, Not Yang. I can understand his targets, the end goals being the ones to suffer, but that was never Yang, or by extension, anyone Blake is close to. He wants BLAKE to suffer, hence he would be trying to take BLAKE apart piece by piece. Just cutting Yang's arm off is the equivalent of Blake metaphorically losing a pinky finger. Killing Yang is the metaphorical equivalent of Blake losing HER arm. So I'm going to maintain that Adam would NOT have left Yang alive, even if he's making his opponents suffer in the Adam short. They are his current targets. Yang was just a means to an end, an end with cat ears.

Yes Blake is his end goal but the thing you are HAPPILY forgetting is Adam FLAT out says
Adam: But not before you suffer for your betrayal, my love.
a bit later
Adam: And as I set out upon this world and deliver the justice mankind so greatly deserves, I will make it my mission to destroy everything you love.
Adam WANTS Blake to suffer and he wants to destroy everything blake loves and cares for.
So that means making what Blake cares about suffer to get to blake.
The more we see of Adam the more Adam hates humans but he wants to make them suffer and hurt.
He also says this in vol 5
We can win a war against the humans. Not only because we have the support of Hazel's master, but because the Faunus are the dominant species of this planet. We're better than humans. We have everything humans have and more. Humans shouldn't just fear the Faunus, they should serve the Faunus.
I will not allow them to ruin this. The Belladonna name has brought me nothing but grief. You've done well in finding the deserter. Bring her to me alive but not before you've slaughtered her family. I have a promise to keep.
And this is what Blake says about Adam
At first, I thought Adam was justice. Then, I thought he was passion. But over time, I realized I was wrong. He wasn't any of those things. He was spite- not hatred, not rage, spite. He won't accept equality, only suffering for what he feels the world did to him. And his way of thinking is dangerously contagious.
Adam presents himself like he is this calm person but the reality is he isnt he wants humans to suffer and he wants to make Blake suffer for what he feels she did.
And he WILL without a doubt not kill a human if he is planning on using them for an example like he was trying to do with Yang.
He was going to torture Yang right in front of Blake he wasnt going to let her live but instead draw out killing her.
That is what you are forgetting this is a pattern with Adam he LIKES to make a display and draw things out.
He wants people to suffer and hurt like he did for what ever happened to him.
Okay weird it wont keep the spaces I am placing to separate the quotes.
#33733857 - 2 months ago
And I'm saying that since the things Blake loves are just a means to and end for Adam, that Adam would not bother with a long, drawn-out death for them. He's trying to draw out BLAKE'S suffering, not the suffering of those Blake loves. You DID post this line: Bring her to me alive but not before you've slaughtered her family. I have a promise to keep." Will the rank-and-file White Fang bother drawing out the deaths of Blake's family? Would Ilia have, if she had chosen to stay with the White Fang? No, they wouldn't, and that very quote makes it clear that Adam's not going to do the job himself, either. To him, Blake's family dying and Blake surviving it is Blake suffering. So why then would it not be the same for Yang? Remember, he says that he's going to "destroy" everything Blake loves. For what we've seen of him, Adam IS pragmatic enough to know that keeping one of Blake's loved ones alive only gives her a chance to rescue them. So why give her the chance to begin with? It's counter-productive to his stated goal, and he's shown enough to know that. Leaving Yang, and by extension anyone that Blake loves, is Bond Villain Stupidity.
I'm not forgetting any of Adam's lines, I'm taking them into account.

No they wouldnt but at that point Adam is more worried about the Belladonna's you are forgetting its not just Her at that point. Ghira has the ability to take away the white fang. He was after all the former leader of the White Fang and he still has power.
Its more then just blake at that point.
You are forgetting Yang was RIGHT there vs Blake's family he could actually control it. Which that DOES make a difference.
One is a few feet away another is on a completely different land mass to him. It does matter wright.
Because he WANTS to abuse and torture Blake. He makes that clear he WANTS to make Blake hurt and suffer.
Something you dont seem to consider adam ISNT leaving anyone alive. he is just making it slow and Painful to die which is VASTLY different and is in fact my POINT.
He isnt trying to leave a single person alive but he does want and makes moves to torture and draw out Yang's death right in front of blake.
Its not at ALL counter-productive Wright in fact its VERY productive to his stated goal he wants to DESTROY what Blake loves. And with yang he was going to do that by slowly torturing and killing Yang RIGHT in front of Blake's eyes.
Also no Adam is NOT pragmatic that is made clear over and over again. He makes choices based on hurting people not what is the wisest one.
You REALLY arent taking them into account Wright you are taking the literal meaning and avoiding the intent and the pattern behind them plus circumstances.
Your argument on the Belladonna family shows this as Adam wasnt there so of course he isnt going to do it himself he JUST got the leadership of the Fang he cant risk it just to keep a promise especially with a big plan ahead.
THAT is being stupid if he did that. he has people and he didnt order them to make it slow because Ghira IS a big name the people might balk at it there is a difference between killing someone and dragging it out.
Also Slaughter when applied to people it means either killing a large group of people or in this case to kill them in a violent or brutal manner.
He is in fact telling them to make it messy. It may not be a slow torture death but it is meant not to be an easy death.
And even then there is a good chance they will balk at following such an order due to Ghira's history.
