    replied to Failed Refinements
    What about Stibium, the Refinement of Kohl and Words? The guiding principle of this Refinement would be understanding humanity through narrative -- books, plays, movies, whatever medium you want. Its obvious failure mode would be a Promethean (Poet? Librarian? Critic?) who dives so deep into fiction they become isolated from actual humanity. Which could just be socially isolated (Netflix binging taken to an extreme) or divorced from reality (It works in the movies, it should work in real life!).

  • 173. Speakers go up in a local park / around campus / throughout downtown. They play soft, inoffensive Muzak that most humans barely notice.

    I managed to run a playtest with some friends, including a couple who had never played CofD before. Saving most of my notes for the official poll, but one question of interpretation that came up:

    MC's Endowment, Gaze of the Penitent, causes a Backlash of -2 to Social rolls for the scene. But the Effect roll is Wits + Empathy. It seems super dumb for the Endowment to penalize its own activation roll, right? I ruled that the -2 didn't apply to the Endowment itself, but that's not specified in the playtest document, so I'm wondering if other people are handling that differently....
