  • Onyx Path forums will be closed for fixing! 👍

    From this week's Monday Meeting Notes!

    Big Forum News!
    An example of an initiative we’ve been hammering away at for more than a year have been our efforts to improve our Onyx Path Forums. It has been ridiculously complex and far more difficult than anybody deserved, but we have arrived at the point where a plan to bring the Forum software up to date, which is the key to any other changes we need to make, can be started later in December.

    We’d love for it to be done and for fixed Forums be a thing we can present everyone before the start of 2023, but a bunch...

  • [Trinity Continuum] Sara Kaur Theory

    Trinity Continuum cause we talk about Sara Kaur in all her interations in... well, Continuum. 😎

    So Sara was Indian scientist that helped in Hammersmith Incident - and later removed herself slowly from formed Aeon Society. What is her later fate?

    What were general study fields of Sara Kaur about Inspired and Energies? Especially around War War 2?

  • So those are my fan solutions on raisen issues:


    As jouurney takes about week then and back, I just give PCs weeks rations.



    Old Realms of Pugmire tradtion for adventure encounter is 'number of enemies equal number of PCs'. In tougher encounter 'twice the number of PCs' - I go with TWICE here, as it's mild adventure final scene, i.e. 'big fight'. 😎



    I simply made PCs help Binton and the miners to make stretchers and help them start to return to Rootsreach - but once they are on the trail, Binton sends PCs to get rest of the...

  • [Squaks In the Deep] Jumpstart adventure ‘Connection Lost’ problems

    Here are problems with jumpstart adventure ‘Connection Lost’ - as it's in backer errata phase, I would point to add few sentences to make it's text clearer. WARNING - This topic is clearly spoilers on for 'Connection Lost' - if you are going to play it, not run it - stop reading.

    Scene 0 –
    1. At the start of adventure, PCs get 'two rations apiece' but 'journey takes several days and leads the party deep into the Underneath'. Should not mayor get them more food on the way? Like, possibly, on at least whole journey in one direction?Scene 3 –

    2. How many Connected...

  • [TC Assassins] Hong Kong fan setting

    Intent: I started a short, few session long game of TC Assassins in Hong Kong in 2020s. As I run rather sandboxy, I want to prepare small setting guides for my game – and by this, do fan example of Assassins setting. It will not be very detailed, but I think it will works to spun few stories. In next few weeks I will throw ideas or maybe some details questions you can help with – and edit first post with crucial info. At the end, we should have some nice example mini-setting for this killers game. 😎

    Notice: I'm not from Hong Kong. I never been myself in Asia. It all will be very much...

  • Well, I MAY be convinced otherwise. And as loyal fan of Mage 1E line, I had sentiment to game settings. Also, I wanted to verified is there in Mage 2E anything more left for me over the 'Mysteries solving' - this very topic pointed that interactions between Orders and their relations with Sleepers can be that thing that build chronicle on.

    But I will not bother you more with the unnecessary frustrations of a former fan on the game forum. Apparently, the most important thing is clarity in playing lines only as the author of the 2E stand made on it. 😔 I really DO HAVE Scion 2E, Trinity...

  • All I can say this - Arcane Arts use some high words I may not understand - I'm just engineer from Poland on English B2+ - but generally, I think Orathaic hits closest to my feelings. I run RPG over 20 years now. Run Mage 1E about 3 long games. Run also Mage 1,5E game for almost 2 years ( ending in proper 2E on last half year, as converted characters ). I CAN handle heavy mechanics.

    But I find 2E Obsessions and Mage Sight rules too heavy handed and unnecessary. ESPECIALLY in Signs of Sorcery. It:s like we would like to play Trail of Cthulhu, but without giving every players needed...

  • [TC Assassins] Signal Society and army

    How to join ex-military types assassins from USA or European armies to Signal Society? Signal looks like organisation that not supports Western army style or values. Two players send me those similar character concepts and I'm a bit confused how they would work with Signal. 🤨

  • In 1E Mage, Arcane Exp was awarded for encountering supetnatural. Players got in to weird plot - supernatural Things happened - they got Experience.

    In 2E as I run it for few months - Players need to declare what they dwell in to - Obsession - go for flavorours mechanics - extensive Mage Sight - to lock on the reaping of few more de facto Arcane XP.. They still will probably succeed as 1-2 dots in Arcana still makes you best detectives in the World.

    I run A LOT of Storytelling and Storypath game systems, with a LOT of players. ( Like probably it's my 6th chronicle in...

    replied to CoD monsters in Scion
    Sum up of CoD Monsters ‘Pantheons’ in Scion World ( for now )…

    Vampires – They have two lone god entities – Longinus, somewhat (anti)messiah of vampire kind. Maybe Mantel of Lucifer ( if He exist ). And Crone, Dark Mother of their kind. There is rumour she is Mantle of Echidna or other ‘Dark Mothers’.

    Werewolves ( Uratha ) – They follow Luna, Wolf and First Pack of Firstborns. Spirits are existing beings in Scion World, as primordial myth beings.

    Mages – Awakened are ALL the Pantheon of their own. They follow Oracles and Exarchs, but in realiy, each mage...

  • And on practical running the game, session-to-session -
    Just left out Obsessions from 2E? Not using them as mechanics?

    Aspirations are enough things for players to run after? And if one of them point to something Mysteries related - just go with making it normal Aspiration?

    How do you see this? 🤔

    Running Mage 2E without Mysteries

    So I was wondering maybe to return to Mage with some chronicle. However, I have a bit systemic problem with 'solving mysteries' focus of 2E - and I'm just wondering - What kind of games you can run with Mage, without focusing on mysteries?

    I was thinking on Nameless War game in 19th century, once we will ( finally ) get Tome of Pentacle. Probably very much as 'steampunk Invisibles comic' in feel. 😎

    In Mage Chronicle Guide there was also idea on Comic Book Mage - called C.A.B.A.L. ( But probably now runing superhero game would be better with Trinity Aberrant or Scion ...

  • From what I get of general write-ups...

    (From worshippers point of view) Teōtl are about Sacrifice - moved even to extreme, when they sacrificed their children. K’uh like to play the (political) 'games' with their worshippers. Apu are about Duty - they are guardians of the universe, first and formost....

  • [Sc Demigod & God] Teōtl vs K’uh vs Apu - Pantheons of South America

    So dwelling more into corebooks of Scion, I want to understand difference between three great Pantheons of three great civilisations of Central and South America. Could you help me understand the difference between those? I'm totally outside this culture circle to get nuances.

    Pantheons in topic:
    • Teōtl of Aztec ( Scion: Hero )
    • K’uh of Maya ( Scion: God )
    • Apu of Inca ( Scion: Demigod )
    Areas of the previous ancient empires...

    [Sc God] Is Ila of Phoenicians an Abrahamic God?

    Or one is Mantle of another? Or they are completely different beings? Both illa and Elohim / Jahwe are (Uber)Primordials in Scion terms. What's are your thoughts on the matter? 🤔
