    This is a bit of a mixed bag for me.

    On the one hand, I love the idea of picking up Persistent conditions as your Integrity drops - that has potential. I also like that they use a different set of Conditions for DF/F/S/ES. I also like the expanded list of penalties - feels pretty appropriate (though "actively and willingly helping a monster" feels a bit off - it's an action, not a modifier). Oh, and the Touchstones/using Touchstones as a prerequisite to gaining Integrity is pretty great.

    On the other hand... I hate the scale. The one thing that made mortal Integrity...

  • You're thinking of Soul Takers.

    I didn't list any drawbacks in the model I've advanced - it could be as severe as costing an extra dot of Integrity for each upgrade, or you could just use the Strain condition to represent it being harsher on them than normal if you want a milder drawback.

    The problem with having a bunch of different conditions is that it gets... hectic... if you have too many going at once.

  • Or people who, you know, just don't like killing. Which would be... the grand majority of the population.

    Anyway, I'd like to point out the near-perfect partnership between a Conjurer and a Titov.

    Turns out bribery powers go really well with make-stuff powers. Plus, they both have a "your power comes at a cost of sanity" theme, so they'll have some common ground there.

    On to the merits...

    Eldritch Lore/Whispers/Secrets don't feel right, as far as "conjuring stuff" powers go. It kind of dilutes the idea of...

  • An idea:

    Their dots in Conjurer also act as a cap on, essentially, how many merit dots something is worth.

    Unless you want Conjurers to produce platinum ingots as a basic "thing" they can do, you could say that they end up with, I dunno, [Conjurer Dots/2 + 2] worth of Cash, rounded up.

  • [QUOTE=ArcaneArts;n1118837]Are conjurers not people who are defined by their ability to just make things pop into existence?[/QUOTE

    That's... not really my problem with this (probably a problem with how I communicated my problem, however).

    If I were to rename Psychokinesis to Psychokinetic (and packaged it with all of the "upgrade" merits from Hurt Locker), would I be justified in calling it a micro-template? Because that's essentially what this is - Conjurer (with maybe a rename) wouldn't be too amiss next to Apportation, Telekinesis, or Telepathy as just a...

  • As far as I can tell, there's no limitation on complexity. If I've got Conjurer •, it looks like I could generate a Size 1 hunk of solid platinum or a copy of the Mona Lisa. Heck, couldn't I just conjure something that's not technically possible, like a copy of tomorrow's New York Tribune (or the formula for the cure for cancer)?

    I mean, this is incredibly bare-bones, but... I'm not exactly getting what makes these guys a micro-template, rather than just being a Supernatural merit that has a bunch of other merits that require it.

    If you look at other micro-templates,...
