    So, are we done proving just how much vulnerable we puny humans are when stripped of everything that makes us human, in the same way how we often prove that knives are useless when dulled and rusted?

    EDIT: Oh, just remembered this. Nyrufa, have you read the Thyrsus Awakening section in Mage? Specifically, the naturalist who Awakened after not devolving into a feral animal (which would be superior than we puny humans, if we go by your logic), but by regaining the use of tools and technology?

    Now, I know that mages themselves are nevertheless monstrous, but they're still...

    That is terrifying. Then again, Mummy mechanics are largely 1E right now, and thus of lower power level in general. (Like how Vampire and Werewolf were)

    Still not sure. All of the monsters have some serious built-in issues that originate from not just their society but their very own supernatural nature that make me think twice about joining them. In fact, most of the monsters' societal structure come from trying to dance around those internal issues.

    Vampires have the Beast urging them to abandon their decency. Which is why their society is riddled with rules, traditions, and etiquette. All those things help to reign in the Beast and at least act like functioning people. The Covenants also give them something to keep them occupied,...

  • Not by the RAW, I think, but there's room for the Storyteller to award situational bonuses. Or even craft an Equipment with one Skill that benefits the other.



    Well... it depends on how messed up the vampire's mortal life was. I mean, the guy's only connection to his mortal days is how he murdered other people? Touchstones are supposed to be things that ground you to humanity and your living days. Instruments of murder seem kinda... off, in that sense....

    This pretty much sums up my attitude as well, at least regarding the various forms of supernatural transcendence in the Chronicles.

    I mean, yeah of course I'd go for immortality and reality-warping powers... if they don't come with any strings attached. And considering what those strings tend to look like and where they come from in the Chronicles... I'd rather play it safe and stay human....

  • I'll wrap up Cloud Infinite and get to them, just in a moment.

    EDIT: By "wrap up" I mean "think of all five Prime optional effects for the Attainments," so "a moment" might be misleading. But still....

  • My personal resolution to Shadowflesh was that "the Subtle Arcana do not require Life in conjunction to transform a living body." Like how the Spirit spells that turn you into ephemera by chucking you into the Shadow don't require Life to function....

    But wouldn't all of you what you suggested fall under out-of-game excuse to purchase the Sleepwalker Merit? Or maybe even the Fitful Slumber Merit. The Storyteller could just give it to them for free - they're only 1 Exp, after all....

    King of the Stones
    There's a rumor going around in the archaeological community of South Korea. The peninsula possesses an astonishing number of dolmens, accounting for nearly 40% of the world's total. While their variety and sheer number make their chronology difficult to estimate, it's generally agreed that the megaliths first emerged in the Neolithic era and flourished in the Bronze Age. Studies prove that the ancient people had the technology to build the dolmens, but no one can tell for sure just why so many of them were built in the first place. Lately, an archaeologist and a few of...

    Shadow Surgery
    There's a rumor going around appearance-conscious teenagers. It's about a ritual performed at midnight that allows you to manifest your own shadow into a physical entity, and requesting it to shape your body. A supernatural plastic surgery, if you will. They say that wording your request wrongly or vaguely results in mistakes from ridiculous to horrible, like "make me taller" resulting in the shadow extending your waist to popping off your head. "Extend my legs so that they're 5cm longer in balanced body proportion" is usually enough. Reports are abound...

  • We can always say that the Chimerical beasts are indeed Beasts and their Horrors, and mages just missed the larger cycle of the Primordial Dream; that of fear and hunger.

    I'm more interested about the material incarnation and "hiding in the mortal world" that some of those Chimericals attempt, since as of Mage 2e (and Beast), Goetia can't manifest by themselves in the waking world.

  • The next Legacy in the roster is Cloud Infinite. I hear they're a Reaper Legacy, but I look at their 1e writeup and see that they use Mind to exploit souls and Prime to steal them. Which goes against the 2e rule of souls being governed solely by Death. Ugh. Any one got ideas how to solve this conundrum?
