    replied to Ask the Devs v2
    Can you explain what is happening diegetically with Heart Like Water. Is the Dragon-Blooded just suddenly able to wield the power of their opponent’s Charms for the single counter attack, or are they somehow guiding their opponent’s fist or weapon back at them, or what?

    That’s not what I asked. Dragon-Ancestor Bequest requires the expenditure of Craft-points. My point was the Empress does do stuff to generate Craft points

    Also I’m not aware of any reason to think she’s a Martial Artist based on what we know in 3e. She avoids assassination with Awareness and Dodge Charms + Second Circle Demon bodyguards....

    She canonically spends a lot of time working on First Age Artifacts in the Imperial Manse. Does repair not generate craft points?...

    Now that we have the Charms for Heirs to the Shogunate, I thought I’d note (one of? depends if I make her Essence 6 or7) the Empress’ High Essence Charm(s).

    An upgrade to Dragon-Ancestor Bequest that removes the “that I Crafted” requirement, and let’s her count Lost Eggs who have sworn loyalty to her as “Hearthmates”. So the Empress can activate Endowments in First Age warstriders when she throws a loyal Lost Egg in one in a Lunar Kaiju attack....

  • Oh, so THAT’S how the Empress can entrust warstriders to loyal DBs in an emergency, and they’re able to wield their full power rather than not having Evocations yet to fight whatever the threat is!

    There isn’t “a” monotheistic pantheon. There are many monotheistic belief systems. If you mean Abrahamic, say Abrahamic....

  • DB mechanics in 3e limit their ability to spam or stack their most powerful effects keeping them well in check relative to Solars while still getting real potent fun effects unlike 2e’s pathetic inability to even defend themselves. That principle applies just as much now as in What Fire Has Wrought, so I don’t see how there’s any “power creep”.

    As for Solars not having “fluff” books... Solars don’t have a uniting culture of any kind. So I don’t know what a Solar “fluff” book would even be. They got a supplement that added big flashy Charms for them too. Arms...

  • Maybe some of that would have weight if she didn’t choose to make every other relationship in the books heterosexual, but she did, to only conveniently obscure the queer one. But it’s not like the books proportions to be about love and diversity against hate and homogeneity or anythi... wait...


    Given that Deathly Hollows was printed in 2007, and at that point Rowling could get anything she wanted published (what were they gonna do, tell her no and not finish the series!?) and the book specifically explore’s Dumbledore’s background, that excuse is nonsense. Many many...

  • But heterosexuality never gets that treatment. Only same-sex relationships are treated as subtext so as not to define a character, but Tonks’ feelings for Remus needed special narrative attention in Half-Blood Prince? No one rings their hands over not wanting straightness to define anyone! Dumbledore’s identity being kept as subtext was not about it “not mattering to Harry’s journey” or whatever garbage Joanne is spewing, because there are dozens of male-female relationships we have to compare with to show that’s nonsense - same-sex feelings and relationships are treated differently...

  • At this point I want to say in the established genres of TC Core, Aeon, and Aberrant, but I will absolutely revisit the topic after we see further out there settings like Aegis....

    So a god of Halloween is definitely going to have Trickster and Liminal.

    it sounds from your description like Guardian is the most likely third Calling, if he’s about actually protecting children from the real threats in the night.

    Other options include Judge if he’s about things like rewarding hospitality and punishing cruelty.

    There is also the Monster Calling in the forthcoming Titanomachy book, but we haven’t seen it yet to know malicious it requires one be or not.

    are you asking what they do mechanically?

    A God’s set of Callings slightly impacts their Scions’ Callings. All PCs must share at least one Calling with their patron deity. But they only need the one to match. So a daughter of Thor must have have Guardian, Leader, OR Warrior as one of her three Callings. A Chosen of Artemis must have Hunter, Guardian, OR Healer as one of her three Callings.

    Callings and their ratings are what allow PCs to wield Knacks. Each Calling dot lets you wield a Heroic Knack of that variety, or you can assign 2 dots to wield the more powerful...

  • most destroyed things don’t leave relics. It takes strong emotional resonance for that. Cities would wide open spaces with only certain scattered buildings if only relic buildings were visible. More importantly wraiths would be constantly bumping into invisible walls or losing corpus as they’re struck by invisible cars, etc, if they couldn’t see the substances of the Skinlands they have to go incorporeal to pass through....

  • As playable as Scelesti, Banishers, and Tremere. So mechanically supported but a potentially awkward mix with other PCs usually, but could be awesome in certain campaigns.

    For less inherently antagonistic “demonic” Mages, you have Goetic Legacies like the Clauvicularus and the Bene Ashmedai, as well as Mastigos Summoners of Pandemonium Demons....

  • I would still like a true Infernalist Legacy, but I suppose that would require a full Inferno update for 2E.

  • Birds of Prey/Harley Quin is going up streaming, and has some of the most fun Talent combat I’ve ever seen.


    Person of Interest and Leverage have been my touchstones for writing new Talent Gifts.

  • Everything seen in the Shadowlands are the decayed reflections of the skinlands. Wraiths see walls where there are walls, objects where they are objects, etc - they are just powerless to physically affect these things unless they use Arcanoi across the Shroud. A Wraith in a room sees the walls and the door - they are solid to the Wraith, but the Wraith cannot turn the door knob no matter how hard they try unless they use Embody or Outrage or the like - it would be pretty nonsensical for a Wraith to need to spend corpus to go insubstantial to leave a room they couldn’t even see.
