  • This week: Once More With Character Development!

    Team Prime Timeline emerges in Facsism City in the middle of a right between multiple cops and the team in the tank, and come surprisingly close to getting their asses kicked. Meanwhile, back at the Beckman Institute, ORISION agrees with Mr. Jets that it would like to change course. While Jets releases Alma Mater from where she's chained up in the back of the lab, Promethean Prayer and ORISION talk softly ... and then suddenly Prayer's using Burning Strike to melt ORISION's component hardware into slag. Mr. Jets is horrified, but Prayer...

  • This week's episode of The Savior Machine: Let's Go Steal A Tank!

    In the Prime Timeline, the ring decided to meet with Alma Mater, who helpfully froze time while they talked. Alma admitted that she's the Infrastructure maintaining the four splinters; it's her function to separate and observe, so someone higher up her chain of command can chose the "optimal" outcome out of several options. In the splinter where ORISION self-destructed, she activated the Eliminate infrastructure (Elise) to go after the ring and ORISION's creators, but in this one, she held off to see what...

  • Today's session of the Savior Machine focused on Miss Saint, Ms. Stone, and Soraya, picking up where they left off: in the pizza place, looking at an unburnt, but empty, bolthole.

    Ms. Stone immediately grasped what had happened - the bolthole had somehow taken Mr. Jets and Mx. Prayer to another splinter, and given them a doorway into yet another one. They noticed that the terrarium full of Cryptid beetles in this bolt hole was mostly violet. Entering and exiting again brought the three of them to a relatively normal Sunday afternoon at the pizzaria, with no sign of Mr. Jets or Mx....

  • Oooh I didn't think about that aspect of it. What a Legend: "Sometimes when the wind is calm, you can year something knocking on the walls of the station from the outside, begging to be let in..."...

    Also, clickbait-looking headlines that turn out not to be clickbait. I'm thinking specifically of that Chipolte in NYC that got shut down recently, where so many of the online news articles went with dramatic phrasing like "Rats Have Taken Over This Restaurant." We're so used to that kind of crazy exaggeration that it doesn't always register, but when your characters click through they'll find out, actually, that's pretty accurate...

    There might not be much direct news coverage if the human hosts they're targeting are already on the social margins, but the news would report...

  • My first thought: vampires are screwed. The masquerade might still be possible in the largest stations, but the population would have to be small. In a smaller settlement, a single vampire or a small coterie would basically have to take over semi-openly to be able to feed. I'm not sure the covenants as we know them would survive, but to the extent the Ordo Dracul is a thing, any Coils that reduce the burden on the herd (ie letting older vampires survive on animal blood, or the one from Contagion Chronicle that lets them eat ghosts) would be extreme valuable knowledge.

    Beasts would...

  • I was able to get send the updated file to my Dropbox account, but every time I try to download it using one of the Download links, it sends me the original (pre-errata) file instead. I'm sending a bug report to DTRPG about it.

    EDIT: Hm, spoke too soon. The file I downloaded has the right name, but I'm still seeing two edges that target Composure on page 50. We'll see what DTRPG says when they get back to me....

  • Splitting the party turned out to be a good idea after all - we were down a player today. That means today's sessions consisted of Mr. Jets' Adventures in Fascism City!

    Jets and The Prayer left the bolthole and ran immediately into another version of Ms. Stone, waving a machete at them. Mr. Jets tried to play off like he was simply confused, and possibly amnesiac, and got Ms. Stone to fill him in on how this timeline diverged from the other two. It seems in this one, ORISION decided that the only way to reconcile the contradictions in its programming was to become as powerful as possible:...

  • Thanks - looks like the problem is with my DTRPG library.

  • This is specifically a Contagion Chronicle question, but I'm putting it here since that doesn't have a dedicated SQSA thread.

    The Fervor 2 ability Divine Revelation (page 50) lists three Edges, but two of them have the same mechanical effect - two temporary dots of Composure, subject to trait limits. Is one of those a mistake, or is there some other difference between the two Edges I'm not seeing?
