  • Tether (Time ••​•​•​)
    Practice: Patterning
    Primary Factor: Duration
    Withstand: Stamina
    Suggested Rote Skills: Computer, Crafts, Survival

    Students of the Time Arcanum first learn the secrets of glimpsing possible futures, then the art of correcting mistakes; an Adept can do both at the same time, exploring the river of happenings before safely returning to a secure present.

    When this spell is cast, the subject's temporal pattern is "fixed" to the present moment. When the spell's Duration expires, the subject is returned to that moment....

  • I imagine there are a few different ways one could handle that sort of scenario:

    1. The changeling won their freedom fair and square. Their Keeper isn't coming after them, and they don't have to worry about Huntsmen. Their story instead focuses on other things. The changeling certainly leads a privileged existence by Lost standards, which could come with interesting social complications.

    2. The changeling has a pledge from their Keeper not to bother them anymore, but there are plenty of other Gentry that might take an interest in the half-fae who pulled one over on one...

  • A few years ago, someone used it on the forum and it caught on as a slang term. I don't believe there is any official source that uses it....

  • Maybe, but the Gentry change their minds all the time. One day your former captor might fly into a rage when it realizes that you're not there anymore, as it suddenly decides that releasing you was a huge mistake, or maybe abandoning you was a test of loyalty, one which you, obviously, miserably, failed.

  • On page 25, in Beatrice's stats, "Physical Attributes" isn't in bold, and on page 26, the dot rating of her Striking Looks merit is not listed.

    On page 32, in the first sentence of the last paragraph under Background, "ave" should be "gave." Also, the artwork on the page is obscuring a number in the right column (I think it's a three?).

  • Well, you've convinced me.

    By the way, does anyone know which artist did the picture that comes right after the opening fiction? I really like the work they've done for Chronicles of Darkness books....

  • An agonizing situation presents itself before me: Do I buy this precious gem now and read it during my downtime at work, or do I wait until my labors are finished to purchase and peruse, and thus let my anticipation swell even further?

  • Are there any special considerations for if a spirit Claims its physical representation? Will the object/animal/etc change in appearance at all? Maybe look more like an idealized version of itself?

    This is a very intriguing idea, and I'd love to see more of it.

    Do the Unchained retain memories of Heaven after they Fall? What is the noumenal digital realm meant to look like?

  • I could see a Fate Knowing spell telling you whether someone is being sincere or acting in good faith when they say something. Think of all the fairy tales where someone gets into trouble because of a hastily made promise or because something they say is taken literally or because etiquette is broken.

    replied to Deviant: the Renegades
    I don't think it is explicitly. Although the game seems to borrow plenty from the cyberpunk genre, and plenty of corporations in the Chronicles of Darkness would be up to some really shady business, a Conspiracy could just as easily be a covert research branch of the French government or a heretical shadow-sect of the Catholic Church. The game appears more to be about power, specifically the ways in which a powerful group can screw up a powerless individual, but also how the tables can be turned against the mighty through (maybe?) righteous anger....

  • You know, I had never considered before how Looming Presence interacts with spell factors. If it ever comes up in a game I run, I might rule that if a mage's spell against a Beast with the Atavism fails because they didn't target the Begotten's effective size, the Atavism is considered to have been activated (and thus the mage catches a glimpse of the Horror, which could clue them in as to what went wrong), and Peripheral Mage Sight goes off....

    replied to Pure in 2E?
    My understanding of the Pure is that they are culturally stuck in the past. The Forsaken deal with the world as it is now, accepting the burden of atonement for slaying their progenitor and taking up the mantle of the Great Predator and its duties in keeping balance between the two worlds; the Pure, on the other hand, act out of nostalgia. They hate the Forsaken for killing Wolf, and think the world is worse without him. Because of this, they're, essentially, werewolf supremacists; they don't care about the balance between the two worlds, and whereas the Urdaga as a generalization try to remember...

    replied to Games as inspiration
    I've been thinking a lot about the Legend of Zelda series and how the three recurring characters Link, Zelda, and Ganon could be used as inspiration for representations of the monomyth. In different ages, Ganon the Beast threatens the land with his Hunger for Power, and in reaction to this, Link the Hero rises up to confront him. Zelda lies somewhere in between, sometimes acting as the passive princess to be rescued, other times actively working with Link to defeat Ganon; her depictions have certainly influenced some notes I've jotted down in the past about a third category of "Dreamer"...
