    replied to You as a Beast
    I'd likely be an Ugallu, most of my dreams (at least growing up) were of me flying over the city and I was able to see it pretty clearly. Likewise, I'm extremely critical of myself and others but my instincts are good when dealing with people (even if the social nuance is a bit lost on me) I also have a habit of being absent minded and yet in the past I've found things people wouldn't have been able to find without me. (ie, pick a window in an entire warehouse of a place that makes them, good luck sifting for that needle in a haystack - somehow I did it)

  • The peripheral tells him something happened, the keen merit tells him "something spacey happened" can he then scrutinize the details of the power used? Learning the powers a ghoul gains from dead blood with death as the example, he'd learn that someone can "scry" him via space. Or can use his senses briefly if he scrutinized with mind. That about sums it up?

  • I was in a keep/castle set up on an island. He's a left-path lich with body-mods calling himself The Dragon King. As myself and the vampire were the only non-staff people on the island other than him he could safely assume I was the source of something supernatural - to which he decided to scrutinize the effect on himself since he failed the clash. But to make a couple rolls and just flat out go "I know how your atavisms work, basically - oh and I know every detail of Needs Must." is the part I'm contesting it seems the rules are on my side.

    We literally re-rolled to make...

  • He has the keen periphery merit, and is as he puts it "aware whenever as supernatural power is used in his presence" and he chose to scrutinize the effect instead of "unravelling it" which is basically spamming counter after counter accumulating successes or something like that. He rolled twice and said he knows how my Atavisms work, and every detail about Needs Must. Essentially unraveling a mystery as he put it, for arcane beats.

    The last one I think is how he said he knows everything. He gave an example saying he'd know every discipline a ghoul ever learned...

  • One other question. A mage in the group failed the Clash of Wills against my Needs Must Atavism (marking / satiety expenditure) and decided to "analyze/scrutinize it" and gave it an opacity of 3.
    How would you rule things like that where it's "arcana dots" difficult or something. My highest resistance trait is Stamina at 4, so I suggested that should be the substitute for Arcana but they waived it. Earlier they tried to say I use the lowest of my resistance traits (treating them like arcana for some spell or effect) for contesting against a counter spell but I said no...

  • Do Lair traits require an action? Every instance I've seen it's X/Scene but they don't go into detail as to how you actually put one into play outside of "turn on the sprinklers" "burn the house down"

  • I once had players do that, they treated every new intersection as a scene and Auspex was free as we just went "where did he go" repeatedly.
    Seriously though, Auspex is completely broken in my group. They'll ask every rock or blade of grass a question for free in the same scene....

  • Favorite response on this forum so far. Someone who agrees that immersion and fun is more important than meta- and power- gaming....

  • A crime scene is fine, going "Where is Mr. Rogers" as a question aimed at the entire city is too much. The area is generally huge and not cool. Having it used to straight up ask whatever you want is a bit cheeky too, I've had a character legit just go "what powers does he possess" and boom he knows every discipline, devotion, scale, coil, BP, you name it, for free.
    Which supernatural power I think is an edge case, it works, but you shouldn't be able to just know everything about everyone the city over with one roll.
    Whether or not they used supernatural powers is...

  • Well, as long as you're not saying "I Auspex the City, where is X, who killed Y, what powers does everybody posess" I won't be the one hitting you with a book, lol.
    Seriously though, short simple questions about things in your immediate vicinity/sensory range is fine....

  • Right to Return makes it so your Carthian Status doesn't count towards the cap for Covenant status, but you lose the 10-again quality for any rolls to hide suspicious activity from your covenants....

    Atraya are ones who get Damn Lucky, Mr. Lucky, 9-Lives, and a few other merits. They're near "The Plain Ones" and a few others, basically for people who just want to be "slightly more special humans"...

  • So opening a pathway is what superimposes it, with the pathway can I inflict as many tilts than since I'm "in my lair" as it were? Cool, thanks....

  • I was under the impression when I bring a Lair Trait into effect, if anyone leaves the scene they enter my Lair. So that isn't the case? Or it's only the case when actually at a Chamber's creation point (creating a chamber is particularly difficult, too.)

  • So.. with an initial tilt in place, if I call another trait in can I merge with my horror (as per the example with the school)? Or do I need to use a nightmare/back door, skeleton key, or other method?

    Lair Traits are cool but I'm not sure how the Lair interacts with the material world (or is travelled to on the regular) and that's assuming the risks involved are pretty high, if your horror dies you die.

    Well, I'd much prefer to be a Gangrel, turned at the age of 14-18 when I was at my most athletic, casually exploring abandoned buildings and ravines and the like for fun.
    Plus, I've got a reputation for being resilient, various fires and automobile accidents and I've only ever broken my arm - and even then I walked my bike home with a pretty clear head.

    Pretty sure you have to roll at least a success to get that though, it's not just "bam everything hits"....

  • Our group tends to play for power with suspicion. Figured it might pay to start with a few members since it could be a while before I get an ally in play.
