  • That's not how Liminals work according to the sample antagonist in the core.
    Their charms are techniques which overcharge their artifical bodies (sometimes to the point that they actually start breaking down) While Alchemical charms have always been artifact-like components which is why they have a limit and require trips to the Vats.

    Adding extra limbs would probably require a charm that would occupy the appropriate slot....

  • Depends how its handled.

    I like the physical nature of Alchemical charms and how they're literally augmentations, it sounds like I should like charm slots but I don't like how charm slots only care about being dedicated or general rather than where on the Alchemical's body they're supposed to be. They could be better implimented but at the same time there's nothing to stop charms limited by installation cost in motes noting when they have a set location that cannot be shared with other charms....

  • I think it’s easily tweaked a little to make the situation less hopeless.

    Alchemical Exalted represent a solution to the Law of Diminishment their eventual evolution into cities is a loophole which helps Autochthon recover and the blame instead rests with the politics of the Octet both increasing the rate of attrition and slowing the rate at which they become cities.

    This means that his immune system is going to make things worse before they get better as the nations dig in and create more Alchemicals to fight against this growing threat.

  • One of the characters is my Abyssal PC so I could get behind this.

    There's one massive problem I see with that.
    The reason why people had a much easier time planning their Devil Tigers out at character creation is because the source of these contradictions and edge cases overwhelmingly tend to be the other PCs. I think this is doubly so in an Infernals game where a perfect coven playing to their strength must exist in something of an odd couple dynamic....

    The most disappointing thing about Devil Tigers for me was that after years of rolling my eyes at people doing that, I was ultimately forced to conclude that reaching essence 6 naturally and figuring out your legend from there didn't really work.

    The Yozi Excellency model is much better suited to pithy statements like “genius polymath former concubine turned terrorist mastermind” and kind of buckles under the kind of contradictions you often see with years of character development....

    It might actually work with ability based Infernals. The interesting thing about the Yozi Excellencies was trying to use them with your character's human mindset so something that encouraged you to adopt a less human mindset for your character from the outset just seemed like poor design....

  • I'm glad threshold successes on social actions doesn't work that way by default. There's a point where social success stops feeling earned and more like mind control and I don't think that should happen just because you got a freak roll or spent 10m on your Excellency.

    I'm less of a fan of the Coadjutor, It's a bit at odds with the gradual corrupting effects of Infernal charms if you can burst from the Chrysalis Grotesque with a demonic appearance and their voice in your head telling you to do bad things....

    Things I liked about Infernals.
    1. The Ebon Dragon’s relationship with failure. Charms like this but Kill Feint Cleverness and Victory in Defeat were genuinely interesting because everyone else's charms tend to be keyed off of your actions being successful. Sadly it was swept aside for evil because we've never seen that before outside of the entire Abyssal charmset.
    2. Perfect defences with thematic weaknesses. The specific way it was handled tend to lead to idiocy like people deciding they'd just never stop running.
    3. Adorjan the Buddha, Scourges were an open invitation to play hyperactive Fishmalks

  • Do you mean you're doing less than 6 damage after soak so defaulting to overwhelming damage or are you regularly encountering enemies with soak of 18 or better?...

    That people would make a silly joke about the name or intentionally reference the Nazis in the context of Infernals?
    The latter has already happened at least once canonically one of Malfeas' Ink Monkey charms is named after 1935's Triumph of the Will....
