    Has anyone made an Artefact based on Ezreal's gauntlet from League of Legends? It looks to me a lot like First Age tech:




    That works as a bow, by the way, not a sword, and allows short-range teleportation....

    A second question: are there any good martial art styles in 3e intended for use with bows, homebrew or not?

    Can someone explain what exactly makes An-Teng's Disenfranchised such, because I really don't understand. Are they just the children born unlawfully (e.g. out of wedlock, as a result of an affair etc)? Criminals? Something else?

  • Marrottes (the Hopping Puppeteers) are perfect for quickly building fortifications, especially if you've summoned a number of them, presuming you can keep them on-task. There's a conversion to 3e here, by Leetsepeak : http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/m...on-conversions It's not Solar or Celestial sorcery, though....

    Possibly all of the above. 'Dreaming One' could be not so much a taxonomic classification as a term for 'the powerful things that the Machine has subdued', or possibly for the kind of state they're in. Files are compressed into zip format, dangerous godlike entities are compressed into event-horizon Dreaming Ones. Perhaps this 'format' offers an easy way to keep them dormant that wouldn't normally be possible, but the alternate form makes them dangerous should they awaken.

    I wonder what would happen, then, if someone managed to 'extract' a Dreaming One without waking it - what gods...

    Or possibly a group of beings analogous to Purified, but related to angels rather than spirits - people with essence-machine souls, fed by endless sacrifices of wealth to themselves.

    Although now I think about it, that also makes for a good idea of what the Bees are. Purified who learnt the great secret from the Buzzing, and serve the Goddess Machine as antibodies to the Filth's infection.

    As a hack/shard/whatever, what would the primary difference be, that the GM/Gaia is comparatively benevolent towards humanity? Perhaps simply the fact that It has enemies on its scale...

    T
    I could definitely see that. I've no idea how to even start building it, but the idea is definitely a fun one. I could very easily see Gaia as something akin to a Watchtower, as well as a producer of Deviants. Deviants could also, of course, arise via the general weird occult stuff that goes on in TSW. TSW actually has an ancient mummy conspiracy, the Kingdom:

    For today, some material that could be used as inspiration for a corporate-style GM cult, or for Infrastructure, or for Gadgets: Orochi Tech.


    Our wisdom flows so sweet. Taste and see…

    TRANSMIT - initiate the technocratic signal - RECEIVE - initiate the eight-headed call - THEY'LL FIX YOU…THEY FIX EVERYTHING - illumine the Orochi Group - WITNESS - Orochi Tech.

    There is something familiar in the cadence of the electron flow… SCANNING…

  • Does anyone have any ideas for what Beasts would be? Black seems fairly certain thanks to their Hunger and the fact that they're living incarnations of fear and horror, but it doesn't feel to me like that's all they are.

  • I think an Anakim, because his knowledge of impossible sciences makes him powerful beyond the dreams of most, and because his power has made him a wandering, mad god that arrives, twists things up and leaves without a thought to the effects of his rampages. His 'infinite realities' schtick could make him Makara as well, from a certain point of view....

    For today's entry, here's the lore for the Morninglight , which in my opinion is a marvellous God-Machine cult.


    Our Wisdom flows so sweet. Taste and See. TRANSMIT - initiate the self-improvement signal - RECEIVE - initiate the recruiting cadence - LOOKING FOR SOMETHING MORE? - initiate the Anti-dream prayer - ISN'T IT TIME TO WAKE UP? - initiate the shivering star frequency - I HAD NOT THOUGHT SELF-HELP HAD UNDONE SO MANY - flip the Ace of Ruin - WITNESS - The Morninglight

    Inspirational Material Collection

    A couple days ago I posted a number of bits of lore from the MMORPG The Secret World on the Demon Inspirational Image Gallery, and I've been told that they're excellent material. So I thought I'd start a thread here to put up more, as well as to repost the stuff I've already put up, so as not to clog up the image thread with non-images.

    All the material from The Secret World can be found here: https://wiki.crygaia.org/view/Lore

    I'm glad you liked it. I wasn't sure about posting it here. Maybe I should make a new thread where the lore can be posted?...

    What Ability does art (i.e. painting, tapestry etc) come under? I'd assume that magnificent calligraphy is Linguistics and sculpture Craft, but what about the other visual arts?

    So, I've got a bunch of concept art from The Secret World here which I can see fitting into Demon:

    Infrastructurized stonehenge.




    Angels. Or Claimed. Or, for a twist, Machine cultists wearing particularly weird angels.



    A Facility.



    Another Facility.




    However, I've also got a couple of other gems, in the form of lore entries from the same game. They're delivered in-game by a being known as the Buzzing, which describes itself thus:

    TRANSMIT - initiate anima

    This is from the lyric video for Troye Sivan's song Bloom, but when I saw it I couldn't help but think of Demon, and then almost immediately afterwards of a Galateid Promethean. It's the plasticky, uncanny valley, almost-human-but-not-quite look, I think.






    I couldn't find a very good picture, so the video's here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxmtHVSVjdo...

    The only issue is that I can't get the idea of red jade/orichalcum laser eyes out of my head. ...

    That would make sense, but I was thinking in terms of whether starmetal would be appropriate thematically for the thing, given its particular qualities and resonance. Maybe red jade would be better, for the fire/light association, or even orichalcum....
