  • 1) those were my tablecanons, not the book, I was not aware the Ashthika had a canon formation date

    2) I was including the Messianic Voice as the name of the Christian faction of the Celestial Chorus dominant in Europe...

  • Besides the forcible assimilation of their former allies, and the Ascension War against the reality deviants, two major other internal matters concern the newborn Technocratic Union

    - the Cabal of Pure Thought is not going quietly into that good night. While future Technocratic historians will see this conflict purely in terms of secularism vs superstition holdouts, the British dominance of the Union includes many "good Anglicans" that 21st Century Technocrats would be horrified by the religiosity of, who see the Cabal not as throwbacks because of being Christians, but...

  • The Ahl-i-Batin keep strongly suggesting overtures to the Wu Lung, which the Akashayana respond to by suggesting the Taftani, which generally ends that conversation.

  • So my probably 18 years of headcanons that are about to get shattered...

    The Council of Eight is weakening because it's 5 to 3 dominated by Europeans, and even the non-European nominal members of the same Traditions are rebelling against its perceived complicity in colonialism.

    Besides the Order of Hermes and the Verbena

    The Seat of Time is held by the Acharne (Hellfire Club)

    The Seat of Entropy is held by the Order of the Black Willow (Spiritualist Mediums)

    The Seat of Prime is still held by the Messianic Voice (Christian mystics)...

  • RAW I don’t believe so, but as it doesn’t break any balance issues it shouldn’t be a problem if your Storyteller wants to allow it, so just ask.

  • I have wrestled with the question of whether Talents should have a Gift that makes torture work, since torture works for pulp heroes in much of the media Talents draw on. I decided though that that particular trope, like the racism in much of the media that Adventure! draws on is better rejected than emulated since shaking the public belief that is a real thing is so important....

  • Partially its because Dragon is the more traditional "urban fantasy" option of play (hence playing much more loosely with actual myth), and thus has a pseudo-Masquerade. From a mechanics standpoint, its somewhat necessary as written because "this would reveal you if you're reckless with it" is a balancing factor on some of their powers. If that isn't a problem they become notably more powerful.

    I'm with you on the Terra Incognitae issue. I should be able to play a daughter of Ryujin who grew up in his palace....

    Awakening did a thinly veiled spoof in the 1e Banishers book, but names and such were all changed.

    replied to [Sc] How to run a Heist?
    I’d use Twists of Fate flexibly to cover retroactive reveals of what your character did off screen and how this seeming problem is according to plan, or at least prepared for.

  • it doesn’t actually say that. That might correctly be what it intends to communicate, but nothing in the text actually says it. It requires the leap of assuming the number of Dragon Knacks you get from your Inheritance is the number of slots you have, but since inactive Knacks, and transformed knacks not taking up slots are things, that isn’t a safe assumption to make....

  • I’ve argued (and at Chris’ suggestion submitted as feedback) that Mythos Scions should just have Awareness, and let it fill the usual functions of Legend for them. Afterall, Randolph Carter didn’t ascend to another plain of existence by building an epic legend of himself. He did it by gaining an alien understanding of the universe. Now all creepiness and mutations associated with ascending Awareness are just Omens.

    the big thing Mythos Scions wouldn’t do lacking Legend is form traditional Fatebindings. Instead they only deal in Mythos bindings.

  • I don’t see how Nihilism would function in play. It helps you when you give into despair and do nothing?

    i say Revelation v Dread. Revelation applies seeking out forbidden truths and revealing them to others, Dread helps acting defensively based on fear. They overlap when you seek out info you need to protect against a Mythos threat, or if you reveal just enough to intentionally scare someone away from digging further, for example.

    Now obviously these don’t really apply to the GOO themselves, but I don’t think any comprehensible Virtues could....

  • I will say most of the weirdness and drawbacks of Awareness I think meant to come from the Mythos Fatebindings RAW, which you’re obviously going to deal with more and more as your Awareness grows.

    Beyond that there are of course Omens as your Legend grows....

    replied to New Fokuf lore?
    many of their iconic powers from 2e will still be part of their charmset, and some of the coolest things Neph loved about them (building your own soul hierarchy, worldform, etc) will now be part of ther core essence 1-5 Charms instead of something you can only start to do at High Essence.

    so while it will be different, the idea that it erases rather than continuing development on his work isn’t fair....
