  • To cut a long statement short: You super are. "You can have a token with any of the three origins and not give it the attached mechanical wrinkles" is in the text.

    Unless you're aiming to specifically have the Cabinet suffer the mechanical effects of being a stolen token and it is imperative that your character and only your character be able to use it without the onset of paranoia or putting out a call to very real fae threats, you can just say that you stole it and have that not come with mechanical consequences.

    Like, do you want to use the TARDIS more than...

  • This seems like the very definition of a situation where you ought to do what works best for your table, because this is a wholly homemade problem you're wrestling with.

    Are you planning on leaning into the metaphysical confusion between the Notary and their Keeper in any other ways?

  • It's probably not a coincidence that the two covenants with proprietary powers that directly contribute to loss of Humanity and a commensurate disdain for the trait are simultaneously the least populous and the least likely to be in power in any given city compared to their more secrecy-humanity-and-polity-oriented fellows in the Movement and the Estates.

    That's not a thing. "Little bits of the dream of the world transmigrated into the human oversoul and brought the power of a place that feels more real to visitors than material reality does into the hands of a human actor, and the nature of thoughts and ideas and symbolism means the archetype of Monsters connects to actual monsters in a way that demands addressing" is not "the Dark Mother is the top dog and the truth of the setting" just because her influence is attributed to the inability of other metaphysical actors to add people who still have her power to their resourc...

  • The fact that you no longer register as a sensory phenomenon extends from a mental effect to something capable of fooling theoretically objective observers; change the "and" in that sentence out for a semicolon or an em-dash if necessary....

    Not in the final version and not outside the context of a single unified concept, setting aside the fact that those were pretty clearly not actually "these kiths have these Supernatural Merits" so much as "these kiths have abilities mechanically similar to these Supernatural Merits."...

    Considering the existence of Ghostwall, the limitations of Hedge ghosts outside the Hedge, and the specific descriptive qualities of Twilight, I'd say leave it be....

  • Presumably mild, because healing generally proceeds from right to left and severe damage specifically overlaps mild damage.

    Even the freehold structure that doesn't have more than one Court makes mention of cyclic power arrangements within that Court, so probably....

  • Those states are generally not what one is dealing with in casual encounters where turning them into an archaic weapon is a better use of your turn than getting the thing you want dead into the area and getting yourself out. We have Elemental Fury if you want to fuck around with Tilts like that....

  • Consider that this is normally how that state of affairs works and that the fae ecology/economy of the Hedge provides a number of direct workarounds for this even if changelings weren't based on a type of supernatural creature that didn't commonly had access to personal self-healing.

    It follows that most changelings who find themselves needing to heal themselves quickly either get themselves to a doctor of some stripe or make use of external fae powers like goblin fruit or Arcadian Metabolism — the Lost's primary means of handling damage is to not take any and to lay low when they...

    replied to Detachment and Touchstones
    Worth remembering that detached Touchstones do still ground a vampire — the continued existence of the relationship continues to serve as a means of avoiding the call to torpor, recovering Willpower, and resolving the Tempted and Jaded Conditions, it just doesn't provide a bonus to detachment rolls in more concrete terms than keeping you out of the -2 penalty for not having them at all....

    replied to Detachment and Touchstones
    Having no attached Touchstone is not the same thing as having no Touchstone at all. The fact that Touchstones are not exceptions to the effects of reduced Humanity but still have incentives for a vampire to spend time around them may be relevant advice for roleplaying the relationship.

  • Ghosts of the living, typically formed from life-altering trauma.

    The fact that Sin-Eaters no longer have their souls prompted "the nascent ghost of the dead/dying Bound" as a possible answer to "who or what makes the Bargain with the geist?" and the Oracle specifically leverages your metaphysical deadness to play necromantic telephone, but more definitely than that, no....

    replied to HobGoblin Beasts
    So. Funny thing about that: while it's definitely not just changelings that can become first-generation Goblin Queens by a strict reading of the text, Beasts are on the short list of gameline-level supernatural beings that can't make that jump — they haven't got the necessary Touchstones to give up more of their ties to humanity and take the final step off the path.

    Also, the notes on Begotten shaping the Hedge are referring to the Changeling 1e mechanics — 2e has markedly changed that framework since Beast was in development....

    replied to Huntsmen Chronicle vs CtL2ed
    Demon uses the Revised Storytelling System that the assorted Second Editions do, but it and Beast and Deviant are not themselves Second Editions.

    That was a thing that First Edition did. The Second Editions have generally moved to larger numbers of sample settings and scenarios in their corebooks a la Demon's Seed Collection instead of putting a single scene-by-scene premade story in a focal "signature setting" like Promethean, Mummy, Demon, and Beast have done....
