    Dodge was exactly the reason I included that bit. It's by far the most notable exception, but it's also close to the only exception (I think there's a Fighting Style that does something similar, but if so it's obviously based on the Dodge action).
    As a general rule, every time you contest a power you do so reflexively without giving up your instant action. The fight response to Lashing Out is the same....

    Because everything which is done in response to something else is always reflexive (otherwise you can't respond until it's your turn in the initiative meaning the effect either would take place before you can respond or be put on hold until you can), and unless it's specifically called out reflexive actions don't take away your instant action....

    Repsonding to Lashing Out is not an instant action so there's no conflict in the rules....

  • Those who Awaken Harrowed are in a way only partially Awakened. They're full mages with everything that comes to mages, but their fundamental human nature has not been properly prepared/transformed to be fully compatible with being mages. Basically, it's like getting new hardware for your computer without bothering to install any drivers for it; even though the hardware might be fully functional, there's a disconnect between it and the rest of the computer that hasn't "learned" how to use the new hardware.
    Where that simile breaks down is that being Harrowed is somehow contagi...

  • I think there's an obvious unfulfilled design space between basic playable splats and evolved non-playable splats, where you advance the template but not to the point where you're no longer playing the same game. Bodhisattva predators are, at least to me, by far the most suitable candidates for that due to a couple of reasons (besides the fact that maybe only one or two of the other games would be suitable for a similar concept): They are already established as an "evolved splat" within the setting, they still play on the same field as their former peers (as opposed to the Ascension...

  • It's a popular take, but it's based on the fact that Strix, consumate liars as they are, has claimed that's the case to vampires. In the 2e core book, a vampire's beast is written with the assumption that it's merely a representation of all the dark and predatory urges a vampire gains upon the Embrace (hunger for blood, need for dominance, fear of Banes, etc), and not an actual entity. While horrible and monstrous, these urges are deeply animalistic, in contrast to the vice-ridden and sadistic nature of the Strix. Also note that Strix are incapable of Frenzy while Frenzy is the primary outlet...

  • I might be a bit late to the party (as in, my only exposure to mage supremacy being people who complain about it) but wouldn't the repetition of the fact that everything in the Fallen being reflected in the Supernal be the foundation for the claim that the Supernal governs everything? If anything in this booklet kills mage supremacy, it's probably the fact that mages themselves still can't directly mess with stuff like templates, and that none of the splats are exclusively tied to any of the Arcana.


    I like how they clarified the current state of aura powers, explained souls,...

  • They look like the person they're supposed to replace (except for a single flaw that might not even be physical). Absolutely no mention of whether they have a Mask or Mien. It appears that no one (including the Fetch themselves) can see the true form of the Fetch unless they have specific powers that can pierce such illusions....

  • This is the answer to basically anything crossover related. If you find it interesting (and if vampires exists in your Changeling game), you could say yes and just alter how vampires work in your setting....
