  • Dev Question: Reaching compatible Numina in the STG

    Question, I was going through the Story-Tellers Guide and I couldn't find any mention of which of the new Numina are compatible with the Reaching manifestation/condition. Is there an official list of which ones work with Reaching, or is it just "whatever works?"

    Have you noticed the big R besides a number of Numina surrounded by a cog? those can be used with Reaching.

      If they are Angel-only, that would explain why - Angels don't (need to) Reach.

        I think angels simply can't Reach. If I remember correctly Reaching is limited to spirits only.

          That's the thing, I can't find the passage in the rules that says that Angels are able to use Numina across the Gauntlet.

            Angels exist in Twilight, not the Shadow. The Gauntlet would only be a concern for them if they were trying to affect spirits in the Shadow for some reason. They’re already in the physical world.

              They can't. Only spirits has access to Reaching. There's no Reaching tag on any of the Numina in the Storyteller's Guide because they're not available for spirits.

                They aren't. Reaching denotes Numina that spirits use from one side of the divide between Earth and the Shadow to affect the other. Angels do not straddle this divide. Physically manifest angels exist on the Earth side, and ephemeral, invisible angels exist on the Earth side (in angelic Twilight). An invisible, unmanifested angel doesn't need to Reach to use appropriate Numina on physically manifest entities.
