  • Like the Dead Wolves, but Other?

    Just something that leaped to my mind after reading about template stacking.

    So, I hear that the Dead Wolves are in concept Embraced Wolf-Blooded. Basically a Vampire + Wolf-Blooded combo. A mix of a “major” template and a “minor” template, not creating a new “hybrid” template but adding to the “major” template. In this case, a Bloodline.

    Anybody got other ideas for more of such combinations that lead to “hybrid” Bloodlines? Embraced Proximi? Fae-Touched? Alchemists? Heroes? Stigmatics? Hell, maybe even ghosts since Geist 2E is apparently going to...

  • Aha, so Mage Noir was there after all. Just skimmed through.

    Anybody have ideas why they'd be Moros? Because of the whole "the world is changing, time we change too" stuff?

  • I heard that rote quality was originally for Mage rotes that got expanded, so... “exceptional quality?”

    Eg. The Chirurgeon gains the exceptional quality on Medicine rolls to stabilize and treat wounds.

    Started checking out this thread about five minutes ago. I'm starting with that link you've got there, and so far I love it. However... the first paragraph for the Split seems to refer to them as Lunatics?...

    Done on Stygian Heralds, but I'm afraid they didn't turn out to be what you sought out for, since you said you wanted ghost-shepherding mages. Well, they do get to play the necromancer stuff at mid-level tier, but it's not the usual dealings with ghosts.

    Cross-posting the content directly here for sake of convenience.

  • So, I was attempting to do the Katsinam Suukya, but someone requested the Stygian Heralds first. I'll continue with the Katsinam Suukya next, and then the People of the Hour next. My notes say that someone said I should do The Legion, Cryptologos, and the Keepers of the Covenant next, though I forgot whom it were. Oh well.

    Anyways, here are the Resurrectionists.

  • Indeed. But for now Satchel’s reading will have to suffice. It also fits with how combined spells are limited and constrained in exchange for benefits; dice pool using the lowest Arcanum, Reach using the highest Arcanum....

    Maybe the dragon picked up lore regarding serpents in Christianity, and decided Christmas is the most dramatically apt time to rampage? Especially if it’s confident that it can fake death and escape....

  • How did Reach on combined spells work again? I do know that Reach on spell factors get shared by the spells, with optional effects having to be bought separately, but the amount of free Reach I get for the combined spell in the first place boggles me.

    Specifically, suppose I have Matter 4 and am combining Find the Balance (Matter 2) and Crucible (Matter 3). The errata says I get one set of free Reach. So do I get +2 Reach by counting the highest-rated spell (Matter 3 Crucible), or +3 Reach for the lowest-rated spell (Matter 2 Find the Balance)?

    EDIT: Though I confess, the Lodge wasn’t in my mind when I wrote that. Now that you mention it, the Lodge of Seasons should indeed have a presence in the city......

    Sure, if I don’t collapse tomorrow after going through today. Was doing the Summoners Legacies anyway. Katsinam Suukya will have to wait, then....

  • Seoul. Yes, there are interesting things. It’s just that I’m not well-versed in history and lore enough to weave something that’d be interesting for people who have nothing to do with the metropolis.

    But I do have a rough idea of what the Tribes of the Moon would be up to. I wrote this before knowing about protectorates being a thing, though, so it needs some refinement.




    The Uratha of the Korean peninsula have been historically identified with Mongolian descent ever since the Mongol invasions and Yuan domination, despite Wolf's blood having...

  • Don’t have the book with me right now. Strange, where could I have gotten that idea from... Regardless, I don’t think the Mage writers intended Claiming to be non-existent in Mage. Just not getting the spotlight this time....

  • Death 3 also has a zombie-raising spell. Although I can’t remember at hand whether it has a damage-enhancing option. Even if it doesn’t, homebrewing one into it should be trivial.



    The Possessed Condition (or was it Controlled?) printed in Mage, if I remember, is actually fused with Claimed. Wordcount is the enemy here, it seems....

  • Haven’t delved deep into Vampire yet, but so far I like the three 2e Bloodlines; Neglatu, Khaibit, and Kerberos. (Were there more for 2e that I haven’t seen?)

    Death for its changing aspects, be it towards construction or destruction.
    Fate for its interconnecting aspects, as shown by Azothic Memory and the qashmallim.
    Prime for its metaphysical aspects, where it can burn and forge even your fundamental being.
    Mind for its inspiring effects, driving mediocrity to genius and sapience to obsession.

    The Divine Fire is resplendent in its manifestation, and will not let itself be confined so easily.

    And I just realized that I’ve just mentioned four out of the five Subtle Arcana, which compose the soul. I wonder...

    The fifth dot is quite scary.

    Thoughts on alternate effects for the third dot:
    Prime - can challenge magical auto-protections against missiles with a Clash of Wills
    Forces - inflicts the Knocked Down Tilt
    Fate - delivers a hex upon hit
    Time - ignored Defense like Firearms (if used with Firearms, ignores even Defense against Firearms)
    Mind - hits things in Mind-Twilight, depletes target’s Willpower
    Space - ignores range & concealment
    Spirit - hits things in Spirit-Twilight, depletes target’s Essence
    Life - inflicts the Sick Tilt...
