  • Do Clades have anything to do with the size of your Stability track or how you mitigate Instability and/or Scars? And is there a limit to how many new Scars you can pick up to fend off Instability? Or rather, I think there would have to be - is this also based on Acclimation, or perhaps your Conviction/Loyalty?
    It was said before that Scars don't balance Variations on a 1-to-1 basis, though El Centinela's stat block in the Chilean chapter of the Contagion Chronicle made it look like besides the free Origin Magnitude there was a balance on the numbers for Variations and Scars. Do the tags...

  • Based on the stat block given in the Santiago chapter, it would appear that Deviant's power stat is called "Acclimation".

  • That could be interesting. I thought they might end up at a maximum of 5 because they are supposed to be a bit lower powered than other splats, but tying their max attributes to narrative milestones sounds like a good way to gate power level and also tie it to the narrative....

  • From what I remember Deviant's power stat only goes up to 5, starts, at 0, and you only gain it at narrative intervals. Since other splats' maximum stats and skills are tied to power stat, specifically only allowing you to go above 5 dots at power stat 6+, do you think that means that Remade top out at a maximum of 5 in stats and skills (barring Variations)?

  • Variations only go up to Magnitude 5; characters can start with between 2 and 15 Magnitudes...

    Putting aside just how cool this chapter is, I'm kind of confused by the statement "The Crucible Initiative is on the forefront with research into both strains, representing the Sworn together with the Rosetta Society." It definitely seems like the various Sworn and False factions have looser boundaries in Kyoto than in the other Contagious cities, but does that mean members of the Crucible Initiative team up with Sworn officially, or is the alluding to all the double agents floating around?

  • From what I remember, Renegades can actually reach a state of relative stability by increasing their Loyalty above their Conviction, at which point they are called Guardians. Depending on how it works, this could be thought of as "finding their own purpose" as opposed to finding a new bogeyman to fight constantly, though it is not a permanent state and needs to be maintained or they will fall right back into it....

  • Every breadcrumb dropped about this game brings my hype for it to the forefront. Given the amount of Variations these characters have and the knowledge that the version of Gigantic the Sister has is Magnitude 3, do you think it's fair to assume that these characters are in the neighborhood of 5-7 Magnitudes of Variations each?

    Should we assume that ghosts with the Hybrid Technology merit can (and must) pay all Aether costs in Essence?

    I really love the San Francisco chapter. It manages to be the most cyberpunk thing I've read in ages without having any neon or chrome. I need to figure out how San Francisco being a city of the dead changes the rest of the world because I want to play a game in this setting and I know that there's no way that won't come up.

    Ghostpunk is the future.

    What level of the Poisoned tilt should be caused by the Crucible Initiative Specialization for Drain Energy?

    Do Vampires and Sin-Eaters count as "living things" for the purpose of deciding who gets damaged by Drain Energy?

    Under Resolution for the Reality Bleed Tilt it says "the Factions have vectors designed for repairing reality;"
    I must be blind because I can't find anything regarding repairing reality in the Vectors chapter.

    I will say, though, that all of the Vectors themselves look really cool, both in terms of mechanics and fluff, and even have mechanics that support and inform fluff. They definitely make me feel like playing a crossover game more.

    I believe the Vectors are five dots worth of powers each, and this is the first dot power....

    It might be easier to con people into blindly following a singular, monolithic entity like the God-Machine if they are already monotheists rather than polytheists?...

    Is the "Athenaeum" mentioned in the newest preview an area of the Underworld located near the Avernian Gate? I couldn't find that word in either Geist 1e or the Geist 2e back manuscript so I wasn't sure, but that's what it sounded like in context.

    There are a couple sentences in the Geist section that seem like they have the definition of Geist and Sin-Eater flipped, unless I am just misunderstanding what they are trying to convey. For example,
    "Dead-Swarms do not possess any of the usual abilities of fully-fledged Sin-Eaters, they have merely enough presence in the Twilight to possess mortals and control their actions for a single scene."
    To me this sounds like they are comparing the abilities of the Dead-Swarms to Geists, rather than the Bound.

    Oh,absolutely. A numerically small group with distributed assets like Zero Hour is in no way equipped to be, nor should it try to emulate military culture. I just found it to be a very funny statement. Zero Hour is actually the Sworn group that is most compelling to me. As soon as I read their flavor text at the beginning I went "that's it, these are my guys".
