    To an extent. Primum 10 demon’s still require Aether and at least some sort of piece of the Machine to make effective use of their powers sadly.

    I’ve crossed them over with quite a few settings at this point. Mostly, they’re trying to thwart the God-Machine’s plan to merge all realities into one. My player is playing a changeling/Exalted hybrid turned omnipotent superbeing, but she has a few Unchained allies traveling with her. Your question is an interesting one, as the worlds without GM influence haven’t really required them to use such things. Personally, I’d rule that if the phenomenon exists in the world they’re in, an Embed would still work.
    What, so if people tend to zone out when doing something boring, then Ellipses works? That makes sense.

I can.). I don't think I'll actually do it, but it was an interesting idea, and I thought it'd make for some fun discussion.

    Well, if they were in a world completely untouched by the God-Machine’s presence, it’s likely that Embeds and Exploits would cease functioning, due to there being no connection to the Arcane physics that make up the foundation of Embeds- and by extension Exploits

    . Aether would be practically non existent aside from small bursts when the Demon assumes demonic form or has a form ability that allows them to harvest Aether from alternative sources like Sun’s Bounty or Essence Drain ( provided there were spirits or comparable creatures) and would be a direly precious resource if those methods weren’t available.


    Cover should be more or less Ironclad, now that there is nothing that can really degrade it through scrutiny, Burning being an example, but depending on where you might be, wearing the skin of a mortal human being might have its own more immediate draw backs.


    In short, definitely.... but it would be very rough going.
