    There may be a similar sentiment to "ChroD is more complicated than nWoD 1e because Tilts and Conditions exist" in play here....

    I should point out that Fear of the Other is one of the new Families, the other of which is Fear of Confinement. The second new Hunger is the Hunger for Secrets.

    Both axes have their influence on the Horror's form, of course, but the particulars are different for "what it eats" versus "what it is."...

    It is, in fact, generally considered extremely poor form to out someone with the specific goal of seeing them ridiculed and ostracized, Nyr.

    Applying "exposing hypocrites" to the specific example of internalized homophobia — the example of what this character preys upon that you specifically chose to present — cannot be done without perpetrating the risk of violence predicated upon the knowledge of a person's sexual preference.

    This isn't "Boss Richman keeps telling his employees to be frugal, but his employees have just learned he spends thirty-thousand...

    Temporal Summoning also can't undo death and had no limitation on affecting supernatural creatures in general even before the errata; getting any kind of persistent effect out of de-templating a monster with Rewrite History is guaranteed to risk Paradox unless your target has the good grace to stick around in a Demesne while you alter their past. This has been discussed.

    As a general question of Doctrine: what do we mean when we say "potential"? What is the Legacy's perspective on the mortal capacity for supernatural alteration?...

    As a matter of permanence without concern for the butterfly effect, sure, but Rewrite History can only ever go to Indefinite and using Corridors of Time to push it to Lasting is a story in itself....

    replied to Idigam idea
    Alright. What differentiates this from a powerful spirit of mirth born in the same circumstances? Why is it content to let its cult cut off perfectly good sources of laughter?

    Right, but the question remains how Laughter-Creature A plugs into Murder-Folk B to form Killer-Laugh-Cult C when the Cackler doesn't seem to have any investment in murder. As it stands we only have the out-of-narrative explanation of "I wanted this antagonist to have a cult of murder-clowns," which — if that is the most important thing about the Cackler — merits a stronger connection between the...

    You've left the event of its Coalescence, the reason for its cult's murderousness, and the particulars of its abnormal impact on the Shadow blank, which leaves us with a handful of simple concepts to bridge between without much in the way of a goal. What sort of story are you looking to tell with these things and why does it necessitate a cult-having idigam?

    A single cut divorced from context, sure.

    Volumes have been written about how little worth there is in divorcing things from their context in these games.

    Then it would be rendered nonsensical in the framework of "spending Glamour means this word-binding doesn't take." If your goal is to turn changelings who break their word into serial dramaturges, this would be appropriate, but as it stands it's supposed to be a way to hold characters to their word and therefore speak carefully. I've had "your maximum Glamour pool gets set to zero for a week" as...

  • For something that costs Mana and Willpower, risks Paradox, and requires borderline superhuman Skill and Gnosis, sure. At the same level a Master can very likely just instantly kill the average mortal without even bothering with damage numbers. Where is the question here?...

    Huntsmen can't ignore Sealings on account of not having Glamour and a point of Glamour you spend on getting out of a Sealing is a point that you don't have for later.

    …This is a bucket-of-dice-game problem, isn't it.

    Three Bargains imposes a penalty equivalent to the highest conventionally-encountered difficulties for a normal action. That's three jobs that are usually — and thus by implication not necessarily — ongoing tasks equivalent to lending a hand on the regular in ways that you can explicitly delegate. The penalty a Bargain applies is distinguished from the...

    We've done this thread twice already and I don't think anyone's too eager to go for a third run at it, least of all when you've clearly already made up your mind with regards to your opening question and Robert's highlighted the principal issue with your closing question.

  • An idigam's Soul Slaves are statted as spirits and receive +3 to using the Possess Manifestation on regular humans, but have no Influences; given that Lunacy removes the ability of a character to resist Possession and Wolf-Blooded with Tells that make them Open are not normal humans, neither of the primary means of making a character susceptible to Possession get much benefit out of the extra dice. How does a Soul Slave manage to steal a body without assistance from a secondary entity?

    replied to Becoming a Supernal Entity
    It says that archmages are predisposed to skepticism regarding Traveler Ascension, and that predisposition is easy to explain considering what you have to do to become an archmage. Second Edition's section on Ascension makes it pretty clear that anyone can Ascend — neither of its example characters are archmages....

  • Yes. Your Harmony doesn't change on a successful roll.

    Again: Frequency of rolls does more for you than dice penalties will.

    I've had players roll more successes than their dicepool and I've had players fail on double-digit pools.

    "The obvious" here being that a Dog is a different sort of werewolf than a Fade and werewolves who aren't in a time crunch will generally manage to rebalance by avoiding breaking points toward the nearer end of their scale and load up on breaking points toward the middle regardless of the penalties involved.

  • These aren't "sins." They're breaking points. Eating people is both eating people and a violation of the Oath. That's two rolls in opposite directions, each with a separate chance to fail....
