    The nationss not, but maybe small communities where one doesn't have that kind of material resources, someone in need - or with the right kind of sorcerous/thaumaturgical talent - might open oneself to be ridden by an agent of the machine god in expectation a form of help and/or enlightnement of sorts.

    On an unrelated aside, i ask myself how might alchemical charms interact and mesh (or not) with Evocations, what kind of weirdness this kind of interface could lead into....

    replied to What are you running/playing right now?
    Yes, constant sticking to going by RAW has a far from insignificant risk of surprise messes hitting the PCs - and more importantly, any dreams of the ST of plot direction - like a triphammer to the face.



    I wouldn't say derail per se, more like leading him in a major personal crisis of sorts - what can also be good roleplaying fodder, the Twelve Labors spring out of a similar motive, so to speak - but i can see what you mean about the weird turns Demetheus as a drunken wreck out of guilt subplot took....

    And sometimes great stories may come from playing with making wrong right - or a whole new sort of right.

    Last game i played, due to a combination of being a late arrival and some frequency limitations, intead of a sixth Solar i joined as the Twilight sorcererss' Blood Ape familiar and the circle was involved with the travails of an archipelago/empire going through a decades long civil war and how a number of individual island powers seemed to be out of their way to make things worse for everybody through deals with the supernatural in a variety of ways. We dealt with gods, playful...

    replied to Moonsilver Warstrider ideas?
    If it goes into the sky too, flying as a cloud, playing on the cycle of waters above and below...well, it open possiblities.

    But yeah, my focus was probably far more on the boundary between sea and sky - and coming and going between them through imagery of the cycle of evaporation, clouds and rain than worrying about specific magic materials....

    replied to Moonsilver Warstrider ideas?
    How about a Ephemeral Cloud Jellyfish so to speak? Now there's a sea critter that could visually mesh well with sky, imho, producing cyclone tentacles and lightning stingers like Frost-Thorn Knuckles produces blades of ice....

  • Well, this initial setup, the particular combination of land, myth and characters described got me really thinking of this.

    So, how about making both girl and father holders of "the Secret of Steel" (thaumaturgy rite or somesuch), that he's hiding in this distant land for fear of the vicious cultist marauders that destroyed their people, that the child may never know. And the cult, while now focused in other interests, is still on the lookout for them?

    Ah, back on the "landlocked vikings" thing, how do you feel about taking it a step further with raiding...

    What i think is good - animal styles are a classic staple of martial arts, so the more ground covered in that area, the better i guess....

    replied to Which Styles in the Sidereal book?
    Weren't these "just" celestial styles of MA by the previous classification?




    Wouldn't Scarlet-Patterned Battlefield Style and Sapphire Veils of Passion maybe count as Battles and Serenity styles respectively?




    That one is utterly new for me, never heard of it before....

    replied to Non-Human Races?
    True, but then the matter of what constitutes a species or subspecies can be confusing to specialists themselves, as shown by the cases coyotes in North America and golden jackals in Southeast Europe & Asia or african golden wolves (previously jackals) x grey (aka "common") wolves, for example.



    Last time i checked it seemed there was some division on the issue of sapiens sapiens & neanderthalensis interbreeding. Good to see the matter of evidence reliability has been solved and the doubts are mostly cleared it seems.

    replied to The Conan books read like an Exalted game
    Or not - you have to work on that loyalty to get troops, reserves, morale and etc. :P

    And i wouldn't say it was so bad for Conan, as things take for a interesting turn in Hour of Dragon, when a relative of the deposed king manages to retake the Aquilonian throne and comes the time for him to deal with Conan loyalists among other things. ...

    replied to Non-Human Races?
    The Dead Princes seemed far more like a kind of oracle/speaker for the Whispers type of thing in CotD: West to me, their main focus being minion cult-making through thaumaturgic weird science, but i do see how easily such a thing might be done in their case.



    More of a Howardian "decadent dying race" take, akin to Stygians, Zamorans, atlantean remnants or others than D&D-esque "race as bumpy forehead alien in fantasy"? I can dig that for certain, it might even resonate better with some of the Blood & Salt fluff, imho....

    replied to Non-Human Races?
    True, the game did focus in those who were special and offered new options of play or as antagonists (the whole Lintha as Creation's Melniboneans coming straight from Blood & Salt, as far as i can remember, them being just mutant pirates with some Yozi worship on the side before that).



    That said, what we have on the last two and others does not paint a image much different from mutants or beastmen in play potential & options. Though admitedly only so far and could certainly change if the right fancy or idea hit one of the devs....

    replied to Non-Human Races?
    Yes, i did use them. A made-up underbrood race, a mash up of greys with nosferatu for visuals. A pair of them came to the surface to investigate something, but it has been a bunch of years and can't really remember right now.
    But there was some nice, goofy fun with that duo of "subterranean vampaliens" involving among other things a big, bad kaiju battle royale between a Behemoth, a Warstrider and the "inquisitors" growing to giant size with strange silver powersuit (that resembled Ultraman) amidst the streets Nexus (Emissary had been eaten and was kind of powering the...

    Oh, nice to see some CofD stuff, specially some non-Dark Eras new content.




    I think Uka the Boar and Rain Deathflyer (from Halta) would count are part of that generation too....
