  • Oh. I forgot that.
    For the record: All ephemeral entities always use Rank as their Withstand. Which technically makes them unable to use Willpower to increase their Withstand rating by 2 since it's not an Attribute.

  • Unmaking does not require Potency to work. If it succeeds it takes full effect. However, ephemeral entities are able to pay one Essence to trigger a Clash of Wills using Power + Finesse vs Gnosis + Arcanum. (Which, by the way, is the only time an ephemeral entity doesn't use Rank or Rank + Influence as their Clash of Wills dice pool.)

    Quick edit: Armor only works against damage. Unmaking never deals actual damage, except possibly as a side effect but then not on the subject.

    Is that something specific to that particular iris or a house rule? By the book Twilight is still part of the material. It is, by definition, the state of existence for ephemeral entities when they are in the material.

    Without looking at the book it would be just an extra Reach to cover more than the visible spectrum. But that's if your players think that far ahead. You don't necessarily need to notify them of that option.

    However, there are still three types of Twilight, and humans have a bit of trouble interacting with beings in Twilight.

    Well, it's not a big deal for those with Life and Mind, but those mages that don't focus on those two Arcana won't be able to grant themselves similar effects.

    Don't forget that some Merits can only be bought at character creation.

    Psychometry (Advanced, ••• or •••••)
    Prerequisites: Resolve •••, Psychometry (•••) Effect: While the average practitioner of psychometry can read the obvious imprints left on an object the experienced practitioner can probe for deeper information. By spending one point of Willpower and succeeding a Wits + Occult roll the character can then ask one question and receive an in depth answer about a subject's history or current state, most often in the form of a vision.
    The three dot version allows the character to ask questions about the current situation or location. The five dot version...

  • Just a question: Why would it be able to use AoE to cast direct damage spells to get around Size, but not Unmaking spells?

  • Honestly, the word cult has had (and still has) several different meanings depending on region, time period and the very person you happen to discuss it with.
    One definition of cult is religious system. Another is deviant religious system (as in being in minority). A third one is closed religious systems that has little to no insight or possibility of induction. A fourth is the same as the third except it isn't limited to religious societies. A fifth is a closed society where participation is mandatory once you've been inducted. A sixth is any organized belief (religious, political, whatever)...

  • "This is always traumatic; no one is adopted into
    the world of wolves without blood and screaming, and it is a
    miracle that any of these fresh-born Wolf-Blooded survive with
    anything like their lives and minds intact. Lunacy, possession,
    sexually transmitted pseudo-lycanthropy, and sometimes a severe
    reaction to the bite of a werewolf can create a Wolf-Blooded
    where one did not exist before. Uratha who research these things
    have found no pattern, and the circumstances that cause this
    to happen can’t be machinated. It just happens sometimes...

  • Depends on how the ST rules it. For a very broad definition of sensory range you'd be able to travel to other stars. But if you limit how clearly you have to see a subject to be able to cast on it, and how long time delay a "live" feed can have before it acts like a recording rather than remote viewing, then even getting to the moon might be a challenge.
    For example, you might be able to target the moon via sensory range, but then you'd have to account for its Size, which is probably a lot higher than any mage can target. But if you want to target an area on the moon instead I'd...

  • But since it's only possible to get sympathetic connections to bodies that have samples here on Earth you'd have to physically travel to those bodies instead of just teleporting. And even when it comes to the Moon and Mars you'd have to find the samples first before you can teleport or co-locate.

  • But even if the Bashing heals in an hour I'd have the finger be broken longer for regular humans. Vampires and werwolves would probably heal the bone as quick as the Bashing.

  • Target the arm to cut the arm off somewhere between the wrist and the elbow. If you target the hand you might cut off part of it along with most or all fingers. Directly aiming at the joint between the arm and the hand requires more finesse than can be expected during a combat situation. (Outside combat situations you wouldn't use Specified Targets and other combat rules.)

  • Gameplay and story segregation.

    I know it's a boring answer, but I think that's 100% the case here.

  • It's quite possible to explore other planets, but it requires some planning and a cabal that has the right Arcana. Forces and Matter seems to be the most important since they can protect against vacuum, grant local gravity, recycle air, keep a space vessel together, etc. Life might also be good to not starve. Space can get you to some bodies in the solar system, but that's kinda it for Space. Spirit is a must, though, if you plan on visiting the Moon in a game where WtF is used. The idigam should be pretty keen on tagging along when you leave, and probably won't take no for an answer when it comes...

    Time and Space to find the victim, isolate the victim and completely cover up the deed, the body and the sympathetic connections that was created.
    I think an Acanthus legacy with Space as Ruling Arcanum and Time as optional.

  • "[..] benefit from aiming instantly."
    I realize that the language is supposed to be natural and that this is almost guaranteed not the intended interpretation, but I could see some STs running it as activating Quicken Sight and then using your instant action to gain the full aiming bonus in a single turn. In fact, I almost prefer that since you can rack up quite the dice bonus if you have the Marksmanship Merit (and still +3 if you don't), but you can't fire until your next turn and actually loses that bonus if you apply defence before you shoot.

  • Rolling twice makes sense, but in a game where multiple CoW shields are somewhat common you might want to use the highest and add a bonus based on the other one, somewhat like Withstand.
