    replied to Prime and Yantras
    -dice be added or subtracted from a yantra
    It probably can't. The published Yantra boosting spell As Above, So Below only applies dice tricks and I take that to mean that it's not intended to be possible to increase spell casting dice pools with other spells.

    -yantra casting time be accelerated or decelerated
    That would be more Time than Prime, and not even Time changes the action economy afaik.

    -useful actions be treated as reflexive actions, like Adamant Hand does
    Do you mean "useful actions to be treated as reflexive Yantras"? I don't know....

    More specifically, it creates social cohesion for the subject of the spell. If Mind Unmaking can do the same thing, it would have to do it per subject. I.e. to actually break up a social group you need almost all members in that group to be subjects to your spell. You can't target the group as a discrete entity.

    USA and UK are proper nouns and refers to singular entities even though they're named after multiple. Using either as plural (USAs, UKs) would imply multiple unions of states and kingdoms, not multiple states and kingdoms within those unions.

    "Each individual united state has one governor." That's a closer analogue to what we're discussing, and an example that supports me. That's a correct way of saying that there is one governor for each state. Each state has one governor.

    Each use (singular) counts as one Yantra (singular) = multiple uses (plural) counts as...

  • Other than not requiring a lot of time and not leaving a body behind that can be hurt in your consciousness' absence.
    I'm not saying it's going to be super common, but if your only escape from an immediate threat is through the Astral, I would prefer to go there as soon as possible without leaving a very vital part of literally myself behind.

  • Creating Irises requires Making. Generally you only require the Arcana most associated with the realm in question, but the Astral Realms have Synesi as their listed Iris so a measure of Space might very well be required to make it a spatial Iris. I personally would say Mind 5, Space 5, but the amount of Space could potentially be lower since it influences the nature of the Iris rather than being a prerequisite for reaching the Astral.

    Sounds like this ancient vampire might be too old for the Coils, but if not (or you just wish to reuse mechanics without them being Coils/Scales) feel free to use my revised version in my signature.

    "each individual use counts as one Yantra" means each use = one Yantra
    Otherwise it would have to be worded "multiple/all uses counts as one Yantra".
    The text is fine. I can see how people with a lesser grasp on the English language can misinterpret (especially if a similarly structured sentence on their first language would mean a different thing) but that's because it's read wrong and not because the text is open for multiple interpretations.

    You have misread this. It does not allow you to reuse an object as a Yantra without counting towards the limit. It's clarifying that objects used as a Yantra in multiple ways counts as multiple Yantras. Your example would be nine Yantras (actually just seven, as Satchel pointed out).

    The best Yantra combo I've found (without mixing in Arisen stuff) is this:
    +5 Mudra
    +4 Persona
    +3 Sacrament
    +3 Sacrament
    +3 Sacrament
    +3 Sacrament
    Total: 21 dice...

    replied to Mechanics of Delayed Paradox
    "as long as a spell that qualifies for the bonus doesn’t leave the Verge"

    If you cast, say, Gain Skill on yourself with a duration of a day while you are inside your library Demesne, you don't risk Paradox despite all the Reaches spent to grant multiple Skills. You never intended to leave the Demesne with that spell because you planned on writing a paper all day and night.
    But then something happens that forces you, and thus the spell on you, out of that Demesne. Does that mean you're supposed to roll Paradox right there despite it not being in concert with the casting...

    replied to Interactive Character Sheets?
    To explain: Supernatural Tolerance is a type of trait that's used to contest supernatural effects. This is most often the same trait as the Supernatural Potency trait that governs the maximal amount of dots in an Attribute or Skill. A vampire's Supernatural Tolerance and Supernatural Potency trait is Blood Potency. A Changeling's is Wyrd. Demons have Primum as their Supernatural Potency but use their Cover instead of Primum as Supernatural Tolerance unless they're in their demonic form.
    The maximal amount of dots in an Attribute or Skill is the higher of the character's Supernatural Potency...

    replied to Preparing for Investigation
    Never fully trust the opening statement of any section. It extrapolates and sometimes outright lies.
    The rules only states what happens with Sleepers and Sleepwalkers, and the conspicuous absence of rules for mages carrying spells for other mages strongly implies that mages simply can't. Additionally, the rules quite clearly says that the spell is held through the Sympathetic Connection and doesn't allow the carrying party any influence over the spell, so if the text does intend to include mages they'd have to follow the same rules as Sleepwalker instead of taking the spell into their own...

  • Angels don't have Skills. They have their own rules in the appendix that you might want to read through. Attacks are Power + Finesse - Defense.

  • Because the idea is that less regulations leads to more economical freedom for both individual and corporation, and the advancement of society at large. The Seers serve gods of tyranny. Freedom is antithetical to the oppression they seek to impose on everyone.

    Definitely. I've never heard of such young Awakenings, but I don't think it's impossible. The Watchtowers decides in mysterious processes.

  • Yes and no. The ideological ideas behind neoliberalism are inherently incompatible with the Seer agenda, but I have no doubt they would promote it anyway. The closer a society gets to laissez faire capitalism, the better for the Mammon Ministry since less regulations means easier subversion for nefarious purposes (both from the Ministry and from Sleepers) and neoliberalism is the single largest ideological push in that direction. They'll also simultaneously push even less regulated economical ideas to succeed neoliberalism.

    I don't think being an actor in an Awakening Mystery Play is mutually exclusive with being a real person.

  • I replied to the cookie-spirit. I think Rank 1 ghosts also are as intelligent (or at least as capable of exhibiting intelligent behaviour, even if they can't focus as much when it comes down to dice rolls) as their mortal counterpart. What they lack is mostly just awareness. That's my take from the Geist 2e preview.
    Exiles I don't know much about so I'll leave that up to someone else.

  • I usually just say "the material". When an ephemeral entity is in the material they default to their Twilight Form. If they, for whatever reason, are forced to take a physical form you can just say that they're Materialized (as per that Manifestation Condition), or perhaps physical if you want to distinguish between applying Materialized and other methods of forcing them out of Twilight Form (like removing Twilight from the area).

    As for what happens, it really depends on how it happens (and sometimes what you think should happen). Most methods of forcing an angel to Materialize...

    Or it's just Wirt's Awakening and Greg is just along for the ride as an actor in the Mystery Play.
