    Ok, so to increase Cult Attributes you can basically either spend one regular Experience (on the Merit) or six Cult Experiences directly?

    • Makes sense since Cult Experiences are inherently less valuable than regular ones due to their limits.

        Per the Cult Merit, you need to spend Cult Experiences to raise an Attribute higher than 5, but yes.

          It's also an entirely separate experience pool that builds.

          • Does the line "Vestiges provide a number of Pillar points equal to their rating" on page 71 of Preview # 3 refer to draining them from their Pillars? I'm assuming so, but it's not really clear what that line refers to.

            Edit: Never mind, it gets spelled out later in the section. Not 100% sure if that line feels redundant in retrospect, it definitely confused me reading the rules in order.

              I went through the same confusion. Simply adding "when harvested/destroyed/whatever they provide" in there should fix it, though.

                Like, literal translation. I know what the relics are.
                Much belated, but I think it's a thing in the same vein as the Su-Menent being priests of "the Shell" — "vessel" is obviously already taken as a term relating to relics (as is "relic," for that matter), but "thing made of Dead Stuff that holds supernatural power" is a bit more particular than we've got other common words available for.

                    • What happens if a mummy is called into a new body in the future that has extensive cybernetic implants?

                        Personally, I’d let them have a body with cybernetic implants, up until they were damaged. Once it was broken, the sahu would heal it back to a “normal” limb. Really, it’s whatever you’d need for your table, though.

                        • 1) In 1st edition, frequent evocations by cults cause side effects to an Arisen's memory. In the second edition is the same?

                          2) Also, in the 1st edition, a fresh awakened Arisen is a walking mummy until she don't lose some sekhem. How it works in the second edition?

                          • Dumb question but I can't find an explicit answer as I look over the 2e manuscript: Supernatural beings aren't explicitly exempted from Sybaris as far as I can find, but I recall in 1e they were. Does that still hold true and I'm just missing a line? Or now do vampires and mages and changelings need to be concerned with the fear sickness around Arisen?

                              Subtle Utterances only impose Sybaris on supernatural beings (i.e. those with a Supernatural Resistance trait), implying that Sybaris generally affects everyone who aren't explicitly immune.
                              Similarly, Beast Companion specifically mentions the animal companion as being immune to Sybaris, implying animals also generally suffers from it.

                              • What happens to bound Seba when a Mummy dies with them attached, and they're not Keshina?

                                In 1e, I should add.
