  • What about “Dark Kingdom of Indigo”, given that that term does come from the Indus Valley? Ancient Greeks even called in Sindhi dye.

    Everyone in the US make sure you actually go see this movie, if you want to encourage smart scifi - the studio is cutting its release because they think it's too brainy...

  • Balance is a myth. Their powers should reflect lore about ghosts and work to flesh out their own setting, not make sure they can hold their own in a white room fight. I'm not saying weaker is better, but "they're weaker than 5 dot powers other supernaturals get" shouldn't be a factor. The bizarre mechanics around Wraiths and the shadowlands already make them capable of things that are incredibly powerful compared to other supernaturals, and make them incredibly limited in ways other supernaturals take for granted - 1 to 1 comparisons are impossible.

    That said, I'm pretty...

  • The problem I'm having with the Skeletal Legion claiming deaths by famine and drought, is that it seems mostly a way to try to stick those rarer deaths (in the West) today somewhere, but historically that would have massively expanded his already huge Legion by combine two major domains of death (pestilence and famine) that were both independently massive and conceived of independent of each other.

    I mean, if he thinks he's the incarnation of Pestilence, why is he also claiming "Famine's" domain?


    Of course a separate legion for deaths by deprivation or...

    Possibly replacing a Legion

    Thanks to current attempts at scapegoating of the mentally ill for gun crime in the US, I'm considering dropping the Penitent Legion as a concept at my own table. Correlation between mental illness and violent crimes against others is largely fictitious. The mentally ill are LESS likely to commit violent crimes against others than the psychonormative population. The main intersection between mental illness and a direct cause of death is suicide, and that's the Silent Legion's whole bag. It's one thing if the Penitent Legion is overlapping two other Legions, playing them against each other to build...

  • Expanding on this - if there are intended to be penalties exploring and acting in the lower Underworld for Wraiths with remaining Fetters, those rules need to be added in the book somewhere that makes sense (like the mechanical effects of Fetters), because they currently don't seem to exist or can't be found.

    If they AREN'T supposed to be a problem, then Wayfarer's Resolve needs to be completely replaced, as it doesn't do anything....

  • Yeah, it could be Abel being referred to as the “father” of Wraiths without him also being Charon.

    That would be an interesting subject for a Heretic Cult to be big into - or a major part of Wraith culture if we ever got a Dark Ages book.

    OH CRAP, WHAT IF HE’S THE SMILING LORD?!

  • The Displace write up on pages 463 and 464 refer to another Arcanos named "Kinesis". The word doesn't appear anywhere else in the book.

    I think this is a relic of coming from the "Great War" sourcebook. Kinesis was what Inhabit was called in that era. It should probably be changed to Inhabit throughout Displace's writeup.

    Edit: on a similar point, that section refers to the Indian Dark Kingdom as Swar instead of Svarga - another relic of Great War, I assume.

  • Wait, so you're asking about the deities we want to see in other Pantheons, not additional ones for the 10 Pantheons in Hero?

  • I do wish there was a common name in Stygian nomenclature though - it's not like they're shy about applying their "Dark Kingdom of____" moniker wherever else they feel like it.
