  • Is his relationship to automatons very bittersweet due to a childhood incident where one was repurposed as his protector?

      It could be an alternative to his Locust War death, killed by an Alchemical with an accent that sounds strangely Austrian.

      • Elementals are completely resistant to any physical or psychological changes brought on by the Wyld in the direction associated with their own element. Indeed, many of them find it pretty comfortable there.

          • Related to my Ragara headcanon but actually serious this time.
            The founding members of House Ragara were members of fallen House Jerah that chose being adopted by him over execution.

              So how do you explain Swan Dragon?

              • To be fair, Swan Dragon was tortured by the Raksha not just passively corrupted by the Wyld.

                  Exactly as Lioness said, it's not just general corruption, but the horrific experiences he went through while there.

                  • The first city my players' Circle gets to, prosperous enough to have an upper class, has a tailor's shop called Five Days' Fashion. It just so happens to be a really good place to get information about the local high society, local politics, and upcoming holidays and special events. Ask for Yulio Four-Eyes.

                    • Belts are an important reflection of social status in Nexus, it's an article of clothing that people generally expect to last and thus a window into a person's prorities.
                      Those with discerning taste buy belts of quality from traders who've gained recognition, while those who wish to be noticed might try something more custom and then there are those who use belts as part of an elabourate scoring system, superfluous suspenders, bandoliers and bracers are a pretty common sight in street gangs.

                      This is another only half-serious one.
                      Nexus has always felt like the best place in Creation to tell a conventional post-apocalyptic story due to its very anarchistic style of goverment, so roaming gangs with an excess of leather straps on their outfits just helps that image. It also adds a bit of a JRPG visual element as per this trope.

                      • It's still pretty amusing; I suppose I'll have to see about the creation of an artifact belt for the Knight Raiton.

                        • Headcanon on the Bishop and Traveler's Road.

                          2.5E Even though both the book of the North and the Core book say that the dead can traverse Traveler's Road, the book on the Underworld contradicts that, saying that undead cannot step/cross onto it. And makes the Bishop stupid. "My servants cannot go East due to the power of Traveler's Road? Well, might as well send them on long journeys through the mountains of the underworld! to go East"

                          Headcanon, the reason why ghosts cannot step onto Traveler's Road in the Underworld is due to an unintended consequence of its powers in Creation. Since the soul of any human who dies on the road in creation immediately enters Lethe, that is reflected onto the belief of the undead in regards to the road. To step onto the road is to accept Lethe. And since ghosts and undead are refusing to accept Lethe, they cannot step onto it.

                          As far as the Bishop, instead of sending his servants out of the way to go East, he's smarter than that. Part of it is construction projects utilizing mortals to build bridges over the the road. As Traveler's Road is only 20 yards wide (60 feet), this is not a hard thing.

                          He also has deigns on the Wallport equivalent in the Underworld to make it a port city. Why send his servants through mountains when you can send them to Wallport?

                          • The whole Traveller's Road thing is a weird one where figuring out what exactly is going on between Penuma/Wallport and Whitewall should be left to individual Storytellers.

                            Basically it's a conflict between the evocative image of Whitewall as this bastion of civilisation betset by monsters with the Traveller's Road as the only safe path through this hellscape of wyld zones and shadowlands and the fact that ghosts and fae are intelligent beings who'd benefit from not immediately putting humans on the menu. The better it is for people along the road, the more morally grey it is for the Syndics to sacrifice 24 people a year and the less the Traveller's Road matters.

                            It's a balance.

                              Wait, it's that way on purpose? I assumed that whoever wrote that part of Traveler's Road in the Underworld book didn't check to see what The Core or the North had to say about it.

                                Well, Underworld was published the year before North, but, yes ....

                                I just put it down to the difference in intent between "travel along" and "cross over".
