  • Does Ghost-Eating Techniques spirit killing effect apply to each attack made with Iron Whirlwind Attack?


    .

    Comment


    • For the purposes of the decisive damage limitation of human-sized opponents against creatures of Legendary Size, does combat sorcery fell within those limitations? If I attack a giant kraken with Unslakeable Thirst of the Devil Maw, is my damage limited to 3+Strength still? For some reason I was under the impression that sorcery circumvents this somehow, but I can't find it stated in a book so I might be off-base.


      I post Artifacts in this thread. How I make them is in this thread.

        It's still subject to the limit, although the Storyteller might let you sub out a different Attribute for Strength.

          Yeah, it's an attack-enhancing Charm.

            Mostly mechanical balance.

If a Lunar takes the form of someone with a prosthetic of some sort - say, a wooden leg, or a glass eye - does the stolen form get the prosthetic "naturally"? Do they have to use something like 2e's Changing Plumage Mastery to duplicate it? Or do they just have to do their best to make a reasonable facsimile themselves?

              I assume, if the answer is either of the first two, that an artifact prosthetic (like Arete from Arms of the Chosen, for instance) would perhaps have its visual appearance and form copied, but no supernatural powers would be copied?
              I don't think you'd manifest their prosthetics, any more than you'd manifest their pants.

              • If I have 2 initiative and a Battle Group damages me for 5, do I end up at 0 initiative and 3 damage, or do I end up at -3 initiative and I only get damage on the next attack after I'm crashed?

                  I'd think the latter, although the text doesn't strictly preclude either option.

                    • If a Lunar steals a Sorcerer's form, can they use said form to command said Sorcerer's demons?

                      What about using said form to fool a Familiar?

                            You don't have to perform a sacred hunt to get it, and it's what Totemic Charms key off of, potentially letting you learn them through different Attributes than normal. Picking your spirit shape deliberately isn't a choice that has big impactful implications in terms of character optimization; I want people to freely pick whatever animal best suits their character without having to worry about whether that's gonna make them over/under-powered.

                              No more so than a Solar with Flawlessly Impenetrable Disguise could.

                              (which is really to say, it's up to the Storyteller to determine whether that's a totally mystical bond that can't be spoofed at all, or whether there's some wiggle room)
