  • On Membership in an Arisen Cult

    How might one best represent belonging to an Arisen Cult, mechanically speaking? Would a Mystery Cult Initiation Merit cover it, or would it need to be something more involved? And for that matter, does anyone think the Cult mechanic should be revamped on the Arisen end? After all, Mage seems to get a lot of mileage out of the Mystery Cult Influence Merit. Would something similar work for Mummy?

      FWIW it looks like we'll be getting new mechanics along those ends in 2e.

          So how does an Scorpion Cult screen for agents of the Aegis Kai Doru out to steal dah their Mummy's Relics by pretending to join? Make them drink a truth serum made out of the bile of a thousand asps?

            Depends on the cult really. Some are much easier to infiltrate than others. How does any group screen for members of malevolent groups? Undercover work is hard, you generally test someone's devotion to the cause, you don't leave relics in the hands of a single individual. Also, if the worst does happen, then the Arisen is always there in backup; stealing an artifact is fairly easy, keeping it is the tricky part.

            Equally, how does the AKD stop Arisen cult members joining their organisation?
