    10 base + 5 Vigor/Resilience/Praestantia + 10 Frenzy + 15*2 Physical Intensity = 55
    You can gain an additional +10 to certain Strength rolls through Riding the Wave Style.

  • There's a few effects that may also downgrade a Failure to a Dramatic Failure, but in general it's only Skill rolls that would lead to "natural" Dramatic Failures....

    Cryptid: The Hidden

    I jest. I personally think there might not be a new type of cryptids. You can either use the term as it's used IRL by applying it on things you can't categorise (like it's used in Mage), or you need to have a group of entities that defies any other type of classification yet have enough in common to be considered its own category. The closest thing I can see approaching that would be animal Deviants, if DTR would include such critters, but even then you could probably find more fitting names.

  • I agree with ArcaneArts. Since all of these requires WP the user becomes a source of the powers.
    A Fighting Style for changelings that uses cold iron against fae should instead focus on having the knowledge behind how to apply the cold iron in different ways that may harm fae. You can take a look at Kindred Dueling in VTR core that can be used to nullify some advantages that vampires have through simply knowing what is effective on vampires (combined with the training required to apply that knowledge, of course). If taking this option instead of simply letting it be a human-only Style, I'd...

    Technically it can be read to only prohibit future changes, not those the Erased already has access to. It's not a complete scouring of everything supernatural or the Erased wouldn't continue to have Satiety, Nightmares and Birthrights. What the Erased explicitly loses are things tied to their now dead Horror. Whether it's the Dark Mother ripping those powers out or the Erased simply lacking a vital part of using those powers is up for interpretation.
    Not that I was particularly serious about my Wolf-Blooded suggestion.

  • No, I get why. Both gets bonuses. It just feels weird that the non-courtier bonus is something that the courtiers don't have any access to.

    The description of Reality Enforcement implies the opposite. "Unreal" and "impossible" are descriptors by humans that are ascribed to literally all supernatural beings. The sentence directly after it goes on and states that angels are "woven into the very fabric of reality and possibility".

  • Thanks for the answers.
    This one seems a bit weird to me. It makes the out-of-season courtiers better at the in-season court's Common Contracts than members of the actual court. That's why I wondered if the Mantle/Goodwill for rolls might actually refer to the effective Mantle rating rather than straight translation as it says. In that case the Common Contract benefit would instead grant out-of-season courtiers equal footing....

    CofD is pretty clear that summoned angels either come from storage sites in the material, or are directly assembled by the GM to answer the summons.

    As for other beings, DaveB stated that Abyssal entities are also not kin to Beasts. I prefer to think that it has some exceptions.
    Entities in Lower Depths probably vary, depending on their origins. I'd say that Strix are Kin due to their ties with vampires, but infernal demons might not be, depending on what it is that really determines Kinship.

    Edit: Also, where does it say that Unchained can accept Family Ties? The...

  • Assuming a maxed mage casting Honing the Form or Augment Mind from a Grimoire. No teamwork because that opens up to a literally infinite dice pool in theory.

    4 Persona + 5*3 Sacraments = 19 bonus dice from Yantras
    10 Gnosis + 5 Life/Mind + 19 Yantra + 5 Ritual Intervals + 3 Willpower - 20*2 spellfactor steps = 2 dice
    5 base + 20 steps = 25 Potency
    3 Reach (Rote) - 2 Reach for exceeding trait maximums - 1 Reach for switch primary spell factor (Honing the Form only, oversight?) = 0 free Reach left, meaning no Paradox

    Dice Pool: 2 with Rote Action (Success...

    If there will be a second edition of Book of the Deceived. I don't think they've updated any book to second edition (with the natural exception of the core books). It's more likely the Deceived gets a smaller update in the core book or as part of a book instead of a whole book focused on them.

    Overpowered would be subjective. But it does go against the guide for creating custom Kiths where you're supposed to get a unique power rather than an advantage like the ability to buy Supernatural Merits. I would rather take a single Supernatural Merit and modify it until it was strong enough to be a Kith Trickery.

    This discussion begs the question, are Changelings explicitly prohibited from purchasing Supernatural Merits in the first place?

  • Do you mean actual Attribute dots or would bonuses to all rolls involving that Attribute suffice?

    Edit: I ask because it's the difference between vampires having 15 or 55 in a Physical Attribute.

  • I have a few questions.

    In which order should Clarity damage be healed when resolving Clarity Conditions? Mild or severe first?

    What emotions are the Dragon Societies, Tide Courts and Traders' Courts tied to? Page 307 states that all courts are tied to an emotion for the purpose of inciting Bedlam. Does this also extend to the bonus Glamour gained from harvesting that emotion, or is that an advantage only the Seasonal Courts have?

    Court Contracts can substitute Goodwill for Mantle for the dice pool. Does this mean dot for dot, or does it refer to the effective...

    I'd guess that Autumn's Fury is intended to scale with Mantle. Elemental Fury, I'm really not sure. It could be Wyrd/2, or Wyrd capped at five.

  • Page 95 says you need something to learn it from, but it doesn't have to be someone who's actively teaching you the contract. I think it would be possible to learn Contracts by just reading about them or possibly even studying someone who uses the Contract regardless if they intentionally shows it off or not.
