  • Ask A Simple Question, Get A Simple Answer: Prometheans Edition

    Konradleijon pointed out that we didn't have one of these and they are always useful for preventing thread clutter, so I made one. Questions can be for 1e or 2e but you should clearly mark which edition you're asking about, as mechanics vary substantially. Now for the inaugural question:

    In 2e, is there anyone besides Beasts and other (sometimes former) Prometheans who are immune to Disquiet?

    I mean, sure. Did you have specific other plans?

    I don't know how brutal disquiet is.
    It requires people to roll less successes with two Attributes than you roll on one Trait that you always have the option of reducing to 1, it doesn't advance past "this person is much harder for you to socially influence and may, at your option, attempt to violently remove you from their presence" outside of a highly unlikely roll or in specific chunks of real estate that are more manageable at low levels of that same Trait that you can always reduce to low levels.

    Was there ever a Promethean 2nd prestige Kickstarter edition? Google isn't helping, or I am incompetent. I see nothing on Ebay for sale.
    Sorry if this is something really obvious, but I just don't know where I can ask.
    Thx.
    No there was not,

    All of them. They has not been lots of Fluff changes. So all of the books should still work.

    vague actually. there is a chance, an extremely small chance, that they could reach the new dawn if they go to a location with a similar environment, like the Australian outback

    As with any question for which this many niche elements are applied, the answer is "sure, if that works for your game and the story your group wants to tell."
    Ahh, thank you! I misunderstood; I thought the asker was going to try to clone themselves and produce a Promethean from the clone once it matured, which…apart from the questionable ethics, would take quite a long time to accomplish.

    In other words, yes, making a clone of yourself could work, but…why? There are significantly easier ways.
