    I will admit that I didn't read any post you might have made outside of that post, so there may have been some context lost or I might have been misunderstanding your comment that I quoted (which, though, came across as your saying "x" rather than "y", as phrased... but again other posts' contexts may have made that clearer, so if so then I retract that...)

    Oh, to be clear: I'm not trying to "argue", as such, but just offer a counterpoint to what I perceived-as-phrased. Any further comment(s) would...

    (Just a quick jump in, as I was scanning through the recent conversation -- this part here struck me as particularly "off", especially given the context of things). That *isn't* LG, but rather a (facet for-some-but-not-all) LN characters. LG characters *don't* support laws (ethics) that aren't *also* moral (Good, though LG in this context, just like with other facets, can vary to a degree from culture-to-culture -- similar to your/others' later references to seeing how Robin Hood is CG from one POV but legitimately LG from another). 3.X was more clear on that (I'm citing the LG aspect...

  • As said further up, Spirit:3 can allow you to harm the spirit; it can also allow you to attempt to lull it, which while not directly exorcising it (which would require Spirit:4, reversing the channeling concept that also exists at that level) can at least mitigate its current influence until a more permanent solution can be reached. (In the DA:M setting, Dreamspeakers/Spirit Talkers have a metaphysical edge in that regard: they can use either Wise One:3 (and a contested WP roll with the spirit/entity in question, though with a bonus equal to the successes above 1 than they rolled added to their...

  • I second Ben on this one (though the concept of "swift shanking" is at least partially credible -- the multiple rapid stabbings in the stereotypical prison situation when one gets the drop on another... so there is *some* contextual validity to the idea... but in general, barring specific circumstances, it should be one attack and not a full action (which would allow for multi-attack dice-splitting...).

  • What's important to keep in mind is that, to a limited extent, the "clothing" a wraith is "wearing" *IS* the wraith's corpus; that is, part of their ephemeral existence is (at least partially) conceptual. That's why certain powers like Moliate work the way they do. Now, of course there are relic clothes, etc., to be had/found, but the "clothing" a wraith is "re-born" with is very often simply a manifestation of their spiritual selves. (This is why, per the further up example, a number of holocaust wraiths were "born" nude -- the months/years in...

  • It's entirely possible for a (M)age to be (A)wakened and not "realize" it. That is, they may have an understanding/perception of things that is different, but the degree of difference is totally contextual depending on the (meta)paradigm the player has with the character. (This is particularly the case for some of the (albeit rare) Awakened children who, once adults, think that their "wishcraft" is "real", but the product of a genuine faith/belief/being blessed by the powers-that-be/any number of things. They don't necessarily understand they are "Mages(tm)",...

    Yeah, basically this. 5E Ravenloft is definitely an integrated setting, meaning it's supposed to exist in "x" location in "your world/setting" (if, albeit, occluded in parts by the Shadowfell) vs. being in its own plane in toto. (For old-timers, that can be a little "meh" because it spent two decades/multiple box-book-editions as a plane, itself. I've been with it, myself, since it started back in '83 -- I take it as it comes... lol)...

  • Prime:1 can certainly detect Pattern Bleeding. Remember: Pattern Bleeding can occur for ephemeral as well as physical over-extension of living forms. You can have Pattern Bleeding (Mental Attributes) from enhancing your Per/Int/Wits beyond their normal limits (or human limits, relative to he 5 dot cap) just as with your physical attributes. The underlying metaphysics involved is just that -- underlying. The Pattern in question is "stretching/contorting" in ways that the underlying Prime isn't "moulded" to/for. Life can, of course, detect the overextension of muscle/nerves/et...
