    Reality Enforcement certainly does bring Angels into punching range, but it also removes the problem caused by Just Bruised and Shift Consequences. Now we're back to a contest of raw stats, and Angels have very good raw stats. Form Abilities could help swing things for the Demon... unless you also put Form Abilities on Angels (which is something I've done sporadically, when it made sense, but usually only 1-2 Form Abilities per Angel). And, as mentioned by Taidragon, the Angels can fight back with Influences.

    It is also of limited range, capping out at a 40 yard radius, and Angels...

    I'm not talking about hanging back, by any means. I'm talking about using the Image Manifestation instead of Materialize and then using the Blast Numen until all is naught but dust. And that's just for basics. The only ability an Angel gets by using Materialize instead of Image that I can think of is the ability to punch and be punched. From a player perspective, the angel is there, it is throwing fireballs at them, and they can't hurt it no matter what they do. That's hardly "cheese", especially when a low Rank Angel with only a couple of Manifestations is very likely to not even have...

    This is really, really worth repeating. When I ran Demon, I made sure to tell all of my players that direct combat was going to be of pretty limited use in the campaign. Still ended up with one highly optimised combat character. Said character spent the entire campaign frustrated that the Angels he encountered never used the Materialize Manifestation.

    Even Just Bruised will see you die eventually if you can't swing back and the Angels can ping you for damage forever.

    Other things to note:

    -Demons have minimal ways to strip Essence from Angels, making destroying...

  • Lesson 1: Don't keep Centimani around in your throng.

    Neither Abram nor Riley have died previously, so they have both been plunged into the Underworld. I'll try and get a chance to wrap up the story from their perspectives, but I think it's looking like Abram might be one of those Prometheans who never make it back from the River. Riley's player and I will try to sort something out, but if we don't get the opportunity then it may be that fire took the fort and the bodies of the Prometheans before they completed their journeys in the Underworld.

    Still, even with the imminent...

  • Session 28 - From fire we came...

    Riley escorted a dazed and confused Abram away from the graveyard, explaining to him what had happened. Elsie followed along in their wake, only to have Riley round on her and demand what the ghost had meant by thanking her. Elsie denied any involvement, exasperating Riley when it was clear that she was lying, but with Elsie refusing to engage the throng could only walk back towards the fort in stony silence.

    They had been walking for several hours when the western horizon lit up with an orange glow. It was clear to the Prometheans that...
