  • I feel like it's a safe bet where fae magic is concerned that recovering an operable remnant will suffice in the rare circumstance that a verderer fails to intervene in its target's untimely demise despite its skillset....

  • "Clarity loss" is "you have Clarity damage marked." Severe damage being harder to heal in bulk and causing the detachment of Touchstones means it falls closer to the traditional understanding of "losing dots of Integrity-analogue," but generally speaking your max rating can only go up.

    I've got a homebrew Contract whose dramatic failure result shaves a dot off your maximum Clarity, but that's for a Contract that only works in the Hedge and produces a thing that leaves behind an Icon when it dies, so it's still something of an aberrant circumstance....

  • It doesn't honestly mean a whole lot — 1e split the difference between "faerie magic works on principles of equal-if-sometimes-unusual exchange" and "faerie magic enforces the patterns of fairy tales as an in-universe end unto itself in a way that tends to produce describable narrative."

    The Underhill version of the game chose to focus on the latter, whereas the published version angles more distinctly toward the former for the understandable reason that, among other things, there's not really much need for there to be a force making things work like myth/legend/folklore...

  • Safest to assume "no" in the absence of specific statement that they can for precisely that reason; if they could do that, there'd be absolutely no reason not to, and the fiction doesn't support them doing so in any way whatsoever....

  • If their Horror is Slumbering or otherwise prevented from reaching the Begotten as alluded to on page 151 of the Player's Guide.

    Literally more than a quarter of the wordcount for Well-Stocked Lair is dedicated to addressing the prospect of using it to supply guests and long-term tenants, and Connected Lair allows two-way reach in a fashion that doesn't preclude Horrors with an informational bent even if you don't have guests or a Horror in a food coma....

  • Your point is that the existence of complications in the way of achieving an Aspiration somehow necessitates specified processes for what is in realistic terms a stated goal.

    If I want to get a Beat for going to the supermarket to restock my pantry, I do not need to specify the nature of any hurdles I might encounter along the way to communicate to my ST that I want to dedicate narrative camera-time to the journey to and/or through the supermarket.

    If I want to specifically accomplish the outcome of restocking my pantry without leading anyone back to my safe haven, I...

  • These are all needlessly specific.

    Aspirations are supposed to be reasonably general and there's a substantial difference between getting a glass of water and getting an audience with the ruler of your domain or a safe place where the sun can't reach you.

    Process should only be part of the goal if it's important, and then usually as a blocked option; "Steal that Gangrel punk's territory" or "Learn Majesty without getting bent over a barrel" establishes a basic "wrong way" to pursue the Aspiration, but multi-step Aspirations are more properly...

  • The process of possessing a vampire requires the Strix to be very close to the body, costs Willpower, and is contested by a three-part dicepool that probably won't be terribly small if the diablerist isn't after their soul just for kicks.

    "What if a weird witch-owl decides to be borderline suicidal within an extremely narrow window of time and space?" is inherently the sort of question you build a plot around, because a look at how the Strix generally operate will tell you that's not the kind of thing that just happens....

  • Didn't you do almost exactly this thread premise already?

    Like, cheers for getting to the point faster, but this is still a pretty dull and mechanically overinvolved way to ask the personality-quiz question of "What's your preferred way to play a me-against-the-world dropped-in-at-the-deep-end-of-setting-weight story about a Unique Monstrous Specimen that would probably be in an extremely niche Night Horrors book if it weren't a PC?"

    If I'm to engage at all with the premise that this nightmarish mashup is mechanically equivalent to overlapping two different...

  • Simply put, that doesn't happen.

    Your target needs to be torpid to be subjected to diablerie and the Strix a) aren't subject to torpor, b) can't possess a vampire who isn't already torpid themselves and c) aren't ejected from a body unless it's taken enough damage to destroy the host, which happens to be the threshold for diablerie to begin in the first place.

    In the event that it somehow does happen, the endless variety of weird shit the Owls get up to may change the answer, but in general the process suggests that your last guess is the closest probable outcome....

    For clarity's sake, I should point out that the argument is not "Weaving to apply the property of being open." It's "Weaving to change the property of 'opens at midnight for a red-haired child' to 'opens under whatever condition makes it traversable in the timeframe that the spell is used and active.'"...

    They are also made to be shut.

    There are specific things you need to do in normal circumstances to get a door to open. If you want to open a door without doing the thing you need to do to open the door, you need to change the door's conditions for opening. That's changing a quality of the door without changing it into something other than a door. That's Weaving....
