    Use Protean 3 to grow a temporary heart before you fill up.

  • I agree about Princely torpor being a momentous thing. A lot can happen in 25 years (Torpor duration to lose 1 BP) and much of it is likely to happen as soon as the Prince falls.

  • Those sound like good sacrifices. As for 5th level, they usually require some sort of permanent damage so perhaps cutting off appendages and spending willpower to lock it in forever....

    replied to Corebooks ghoul Merits.
    If the Lick has a whole slew of ghouled animals, he can feed the human ghoul and have the human ghoul do the upkeep on each individual animal instead of keeping track and doing it himself. In this case, the animals are already bonded to the vamp.

    The ghoul can carry out orders and ghoul pack members on his own, as needed, without having to bother the regnant to do the deed....

    replied to Corebooks ghoul Merits.
    The ghoul merits are more geared toward ghouls as players, and not always towards making them more useful to the regnant. That being said, if you can feed your ghoul and he can handle the maintenance of the stable, then it's one thing you don't have to do yourself.

    replied to "Mythic Form." A devotion?
    I don't see the reasoning for other phys reqs beyond just upping XP cost. If XP cost is the thing, then I'd say just require a dot or two of any other phys Discipline.
    FoN's flavor text makes some sense about needing Vigor and Resil to give wacky forms structural integrity and locomotion where they should otherwise collapse into a blob. FoN is also WAY more powerful than any single form simply because it can take that form and next turn be something completely different.

    I'd say just Protean 5 Devotion as the base power is already a completely supernatural transformation into an entirely different form.

    replied to Animalism, Getting Creative
    To me, Animalism currently and always has felt like a filler Discipline. The current 1st power is really what it's all about and could have been tucked into another Discipline like Dominate or maybe Protean(by taking on the species' form to communicate), while the other powers in every incarnation have always been odd ducks and seem to fit better as Devotions of other mind influencing Disciplines.

    As for uses:
    * - Scouts, Spies, and Couriers, though remember that they only relay information to the best of their understanding and resist commands unless ghouled or Familiar(ed?)(ized?),...

  • Sounds like a good idea for a Protean 4 Devotion!



    I see what you're saying and it is probably the spirit of the power but a scabbard or trenchcoat is really no different from a floorboard, they're all objects being moved around by ones body.
    My point for Clash of Wills was not so much 360 but more about Tremorsense. The ground is still vibrating in much the same way as floorboards creak, as creaking is nothing but audible vibration.

  • Well if the area around them doesn't count, then the reflected light that you would see from them is actually touching your own eye but Obf does specifically say "he vanishes entirely"
    To be fair though, I do think that Obf 3 could be worded better. It says "He makes no sound" but does cause creaking floorboards. So does obf just make it so his own joints don't pop but all other sounds happen as normal?

    Thinking further about this, the special sense is coming from a Discipline and being circumvented by another Discipline so perhaps a Clash of Wills is...

  • Invisible yes but it wouldn't help Vs Obfuscate which clouds the brain directly.

    replied to How do upscale Vamps feed?
    Well Dominate has potential to accidentally fog, lose, or alter memories and therefore studied information.
    Majesty could mean that the victim learned more about how the vamps nose crinkles when frustrated than the actual material.
    Nightmare I suppose could just induce one to learn enough to spit out the correct words before getting out of that monsters presence and forgetting it all.

  • Yup, spend a bunch of XP and Vitae, and you too can get all kinds of powers. There's even a Merit that lets you use your Composure as the base number instead of +3.
    You can only get max of +3 with aiming naturally, meaning without other XP expenditures to increase it. This is compared to Physical Intensity which would give an inherent +2 without any additional XP expenditure and at BP 1, you have to choose one or the other. It's just not as amazing as you seem to think unless you do spend a bunch of XP on top of it.

  • Other than owing a huge boon to the Ordo member who performed the surgery OR having to cut off the loose end that is the same person and having to trust him/her literally with your life in order to perform the surgery in the first place, not really. Well, they would also have to know of that Scale's existence in the first place.



    Whatever max bonus you can derive from aiming over x number of turns (I think standard is +2 or 3) can be immediately applied to the roll....
