  • I'll keep it the same as Aimed Spell if only for the fact that it keeps things consistent and not confusing. In both cases (touch/aimed) cast + reflexive touch/aim.



    This next part is aimed at no one in particular:


    I'm going to assume you cannot use the Aiming mechanic to grant yourself +1 to +3 on Aimed Spells, like you can with firearms. Am I correct in that assumption?...

  • The book says Touching an Opponent for the purpose of delivering a touch-range spell requires a Dex + Brawl roll, though. Does this happen before or after casting? How exactly do you work in your Yantra - since you're actively doing something that isn't related to concentrating, like chasing someone down? Is that the point? Touch-range spells aren't really great for combat (especially not offensive, unless you're using magic to make touching people much easier.) and limit the use of Yantra.

    The main benefit of trying to make this work would be not always spending a Reach on upgrading...

  • If your spell lasts 1 turn, and you miss your touch attempt, does it fizzle out?

    If your spell lasts 3 turns, and you miss your touch attempt, does it lose 1 turn off its duration but still allow you to make another touch attempt on your next turn? Meaning you don't have to recast, but it's still occupying a spell slot?

    If you miss an aimed spell, no matter the duration, it's gone - meaning you have to cast it all over again to use it?

  • Can't you also use Space to manipulate your sympathetic connection to your Shadow Name and/or other aspects of you (pictures of you, your appearance in general, where you live, etc.)?

    I assume weakening those connections would merely make it so anyone looking for you would have to double or triple check to make sure you're actually who they have pictures of. Like there is something off about you, but continued detective work would reinstate the connection.

    You could also combine it with a Mind spell, either replacing details of you with details of someone else or just...

  • That's actually funny because I was going to ask how specific they could be. I assume the condition trigger needs to relate to a thing that has already happened (take damage, a gun is fired, a person speaks), rather than a supposed future state. Ergo, you could not be "about to die" all the time because you currently are not dying, and the moment you would be dying, you would have triggered the attainment to drop your Hung Spell and release your other spell.

    If you're hanging from a cliff, I don't believe it should trigger until you fall and take damage that may eventually...

  • That is more or less what I figured, given that it is a Fate attainment....

  • How is the probability for (Fate: Conditional Duration) evaluated?

    On page 192 of the 2nd ed. corebook, the Conditional Duration attainment refers to common, infrequent, and improbable for evaluating the bonus to duration. What is the probability relative to? Does the attainment do a bit of meta-gaming with respect to previous behavior, present circumstance, or future intentions?

    If I say, "This spell goes off if I am about to die." does the spell check for how often I've been near death before (aka you've been there many times before, so you'll probably be there again - common)? Or does it check for the probability of being close to death...
