  • Varies by spell. Web-Weaver isn't lasting. Cut Threads is. Create Sympathy has a Reach option for being lasting....

  • Fuck. I wrote a long post that got ate when I accidentally pressed ctrl+r instead of ctrl+t.
    Anyway, my point was that sympathy (regardless of the nature of the bond) is almost exclusively described in emotional terms, and that the Create Sympathy spell explicitly states that creating a sympathetic bond will always affect the subject emotionally.

    So yeah, severing the bond between parent and child will likely make the parent more neglectful and dismissive, and make the child prefer to confide in any other parental figure in their life. It would not change their biology or physical...

  • Are they supposed to have Seeming benefits? Can't find any mention of it on pages 252-253 so I'd just assume they wouldn't have any. Unless, of course, they've somehow managed to bargain for them....

  • Generally speaking keys are made from blanks that have never touched the locks during production. Zero physical contact before they're packaged together or used together.

    Personally, I think the metaphysical part of sympathy refers to explicitly supernatural connections. A mage and their familiar, spells, spell subjects, and used yantras. These are the examples given that only fit the metaphysical aspect of sympathy.

    If you disagree with my interpretation (which you are free to do; I might be mistaken about that), then it might be worth considering this before deciding...

  • You already got an answer for Shifting the Odds:


    For the basic question you mentioned in the same thread "What happens to the original primary spell factor values when switching Primary spell factors?" the answer is just to move your free steps from the old primary factor to the new primary factor. (Just don't forget that all factors start at one step, and the extra given steps are in addition to that first step.)




    The spell needs to be active for the bonus to be applicable. You can either add a few steps on the duration factor, switch...

  • It's an example of items with strong emotional ties, so a person usually have a medium strength connection to their own wedding ring....

  • Sympathy is described exclusively between two people or between one person and an object. I don't think it's intended that two objects can't have sympathy, but since neither is capable of forming emotional bonds (which is the most common source for sympathetic connections), the strength of the link should naturally be quite limited.

    A lock and a matching key would probably not have a sympathetic connection at all unless they're used together quite often, in which case it should be weak. It's much more likely that whoever holds the key has a connection to both the key and the lock...

  • Since it's not the spell that destroys the soul stone, destroying the soul stone simply follows the rules for how you decide to break it.
    I view it a lot like the Sacrament Yantra. The act of breaking something is what powers the spell, not the object itself, thus the remains of the object doesn't lose any spiritual power or meaning. It's just broken in the way that you broke it....

  • I mentioned "weird and unique circumstances" earlier. I think it's far more likely (if extremely rare to the point where it might not have happened at all even if it's possible) that a werewolf would gain access to an Arcanum through their general mutability (especially Ghost Wolves) as well as their connection to the Anima Mundi. A werewolf who learns to dream lucidly and to explore Astral Space could possibly encounter the Aeons, and (potentially by forming a lodge around one) pick up part of their nature and Resonances into her own. Not to mention that the Aeons can grant use of spells...

  • They are not shards of Wolf.

    In fact, they might not be descendants at all; rather Uratha might just created in Wolf's own image.

    Regardless, since literal shards of Pangaeans (the Hosts) haven't exhibited the ability to use the Arcana, werewolves are extremely unlikely to do so barring some extremely weird and unique circumstances....

    replied to Dedicated Tools as Yantras
    My understanding of the Yantra rules (which does different from ArcaneArts and Satchel) is this:

    The Acanthus can either use the lunargent mirror as a regular Path Tool (silver being the right material for an Acanthus, and it being a mirror resonates with scrying across time) for a +1 bonus, or according to its lunargent property (scrying across time) for a +2 bonus. Because the specific symbolism tied to the spell is identical in this case (using a reflective surface to scry across time), you could only use it once.
    I just realised that mirrors can be used to cast spells on...
