  • Generally, what can each dot rating of Arcanum can do?

  • Can be any of them, really. You just have to ask yourself what Jimmy would do, would he do what needs to be done, would he solve all his problems with violence, or would he reenact his rebellion?

  • Wait is Defense in 2E calculated as the higher of (Wits) and (Dexterity + Athletics), or the higher of (Wits +Athletics) and (Dexterity +Athletics)?

  • Just thought of something. Reverse Engineering Wonders, not mortals doing it, but other geniuses. This would let them simply steal the knowledge of its Field rather than working to get it. It wouldn't be as quick as a teacher but it would be better than starting from scratch.

  • Currently, Geniuses with Restraint 4-7 like to lay low and avoid attention, Havoc works with range if the mortal is smart enough, a possible copy of Syballis that drives people mad with Wonders, and the fact that Wonders would be dismissed as flukes 'cause there not replicable....

  • Restraint is good. Yeah, in other news. What about Unmada Fields?. Unmada is now a Condition but maybe we should make the Field part of the drawbacks of powerfull Inspiration? Like, even while not Unmada those of Inspiration 6+ have their beliefs reinforced in subtle but pervasive ways. The Narrativists life becomes more like fiction and the like. Not enough no warp reality in obvious ways but enough to risk detection from others who know what to look for.

  • Love it, though if the power of such Fields are so potent we should probably lessen its range. Though an Inspiration 7+ Unmada would still be some sort of god in his own domain, I'm a bit iffy if that domain should still be an entire city. I mean, non-unmada geniuses using their Unmada Field would probably have intensely limited range and actual unmada would have longer reach, but the whole city-god thing should probably be reserved for either Inspiration 10 or the use of a Wonder of Pankosmoi.

  • Alright then, now to Unmada. Should we give their Wonders bonuses for working within their Unmada Field due to resonant physics?

  • So, do you think this system is too complicated? Or is it fine but needs some fine tuning.

  • Ok, how about this

    Focused: Focused effects are optional effects that come with each Inference. It would specify a drawback that would narrow down its effect but would in turn grant bonuses to the specified action itself.

    Axioms
    Axioms are composed of multiple base [Powers] that are available at each dot, most of which improve as the Inspired mastery of the Axiom and Inspiration grows. These powers cannot be integrated into Wonders on their own, but must be molded and focused by Inferences. Most Inferences grant optional bonuses to the base power while constricting...

  • Well, all this is based on 1E stuff. And I'm not fammiliar enough with things that interact with the Underworld to really make good ways for it to interact with wonders. Other than that, and the whole Dimensions thing, what do you think about the current system.

  • Ok, i got an example

    Axioms
    Axioms are composed of multiple base [powers] that are available at each dot, some of which improve as the Inspired's mastery of the Axiom and Inspiration grows. These powers cannot be integrated into Wonders on their own, but must be molded and focused by Inferences. Most Inferences grant bonuses to the base power while constricting it's targets, some Inferences simply grant new powers wholesale, though these are inevitably narrow in focus.

    Example Axioms
    Exelixi

  • I'll try but it might take a while. All my data is on docs and the Internet Connection in my house is broken. So working on my computer is out. I have the required stuff on a tablet though so ill at least try.

  • I just thought of something. Because reading the same Healing ability on three different Fields is boring, why don't we keep the powers under the description of each Axiom dot, each Inference would then reference a specific power on its Axiom and mention how it changes the targeting and the overall effect.

  • Ok, yeah, doing something like that would make things much easier. I'll try to write that then.

    Edit: As for infectous unmadaness, the idea is that the Genius' worldview is twisted by the unmada field until it matches the Unmada's, just like it twists the 'Real World'. This is mostly to explain unmada working together when their madness makes them paint those with even slightly different worldviews as fools.

  • Wait, thats just the 1E system with the effects being Axiom locked Variables and Fields being minor Aesthetics.

    Another thoughy, what if we made Unmadaness infectious with the infected genius gaining the same world view as the one who infected him?....

  • 'Course not. I'm basing all of these Inferences on 1E mechanics. Aggravated Healing requires Exelixi 4. As for Reach, its a Mage mechanic that effects their spells powers. I'm not sure whether we should use mechanics from mage, but this whole Field and Inference system is already a frankenstein of Werewolf Gifts and Renown, Sin-Eater Keys and Manefestations, and Changeling Contracts that adding mage mechanics would only make it more unrecodnizeable. However I have no idea how Reaching actually works so I'm just gonna let someone else implement it once I'm done cannibalizing 1E Genius....

  • Alright, I'll probably put the upgrade style powers (Healing Lethal and Aggravated) in the same Inference, though well see if upgrading them just requires more dots in Axiom or actually buying them again. As each Axiom can have multiple Inferences that puts standard Fields at up to 6-16+ Inferences, though we can probably just shuffle some into other Fields later. I'll try to make a few Inferences based on the stuff from 1E for now and see how that goes.
