  • There was. The fact it got removed and wasnt replaced suggests that gaining mana from mundane stuff is harder or not possible in 2e anymore. Mana is reasonably harder to get in 2e over 1e. (artifacts dont regain 1 per day etc etc)...

  • Shaping and using it as a weapon would probably be a forces 3 weaving spell, altering the property of the electricity to become "stable" and keep a shape. You'd need some other spell to protect you from it though like alchemists touch or another creative forces shielding spell.

    As for lightning into mana, i would say no. Mundane lightning has no mana/magical power so i wouldnt allow it. If it were possible then it would be used to turn power sockets into mana chargers.....

  • You could define a point 1 inch above your head for the spell, the spell would then be centered on that spot and have the X scale depending on spell factors. But i think that its then fixed at that spot for the duration of the spell. If you move your head the spell doesnt move with you but stays centered to the spot that was 1" above your head before you moved it.

    Aoe spells inside containers are tricky, you can either a) define the area inside a train or b) define a area the train just happens to be in. (same with the house example above).
    a) means the spell stays within...

  • Until a FAQ clarifies it, then its open to interpretation really.

  • no. Some people seem to homebrew it so that you can do this and have moving aoe spells but thats not RAW.

    By default the area needs to be within touch range like all spells, but you can spend a reach to make it sensory then the area can be anywhere within sensory range, and even extend outside line of sight because of it as long as part of it is in sensory range.

    An example is that you can have a house sized area effect spell and touch the house to cast the spell on everybody inside that house or extend it to sensory and just need to view the house to cast the spell....

  • Not only are there other potential enemies but allies might start retracting any assistance they provide or stop helping out at all if you become known as the one who skips straight to unmaking things away. Who really wants to be friends with people who at the next disagreement might try to end your existence. Once people get reputations for violent thugs its normal that people start distancing themselves from them....

  • Note that this also means that if the targets composure/withstand trait is later raised (via willpower or another spell for example) then that might reduce the potency of the spell to 0 and it no longer affects that target. Another note is that you need to actually be aware a spell is being cast on you before you can use willpower to increase a resistant trait, which depending on the spell may or may not let folk do it....

  • Considering Exceptional Luck is the only spell that specifically has the +2 reach for "the boon/hex can affect spell casting rolls" then its safe to assume ALL three applications of boons can be applied vs a spellcasting roll when using EL. Other spells that give boons without this specific +2 reach option (ie monkeys paw, sworn oath etc) can still all all 3 applications of boons to a roll, but can only add the "grant 9/8 again" boon option to spellcasting because THAT specific application of boons has its own +2 reach option that this boon option can apply to spellcasting...

  • The max potency for spells isn't arcana -1, you get arcana -1 as the base for primary potency but you can increase it up to whatever. The max is your total dice pool + 5 / 2 up to the -5 limit of a casting dicepool.

    With things like exceptional lucks 9 again turning a chance die into a single die and also giving yourself steadfast via EL too,you can auto succeed at it too.

  • From 1e. Your astral body is (was in 1e the dream form might be the same in 2e) a soul but that doesnt make your onieros part of it.

    Not being able to enter the astral while soul less isnt the same as not having an oneiros while soul less. One presumes a mage with a soul could enter the soul less mages oneiros? At least thats how i see it, and cant find text to say otherwise so far apart from fluff text naming it personal soul, the soul realm etc.

    I just dont think that if you swap a soul the persons oneiros goes with it (since you dont get memories from a soul etc and...

  • 1) a person might not even be aware his soul was stolen, the external factors from soul loss will probably manifest inside the oneiros though as they slowly spiral into a broken person.
    2)again sleepers arnt probably even aware of soul loss, they just spiral down into thrall/broken territory and however that manifests in ones thoughts
    3) Since being in an awake person oneiros is akin to viewing whatever they are doing at the time, its probably very bad to be inside one during an awakeing. It probably isnt going to stop one and you'll be lucky if you arnt dragged into something terrible...

  • Either the gun is just a manifestation of the blast numina so only appears as a m-16 when he uses it and you cant steal it from the ghost, or the gun is a seperate item that the ghost makes his blast numina appear from. Even if you steal the gun you wont get access to the blast numina, you'll just have a ghost m-16. The ghost then probably has to think of another way for his blast numina to manifest.....

  • Hmm, If its obvious magic and quiescence is involved then all sleeper parties will forget and not be able to spread stories? Sleepwalkers are gossips!!!...

    replied to Recomended books
    Is the Free Council order book still that valid? They are my least favourite order so i havent actually read the 2e write up but from what i can tell they are the most changed between editions (apart from the tremere once being a part of the diamond orders?)

    Agree on all of those books, would maybe add the blue book of spirits/book of the dead until the fallen realms book is out? Still 1e but they helped me wrap my head around the underworld/spirit realm....

  • Probably better to negate it then put your own on after then rather than alter somebody elses. Though A mage can detect when one of his spells is dispelled right so probably can sense when its severed. His spell control will return at least so i assume mages at least sense that?...

  • Weirdly negating the oath via Sever Oath wouldnt trigger a CoW's though right, the only reason it triggers one when you try to change it is because of two effects trying to do the same thing and only one can be in place?...

  • 1) It can be used for what the Ectoplasmic shaping spell uses it for. A mirror to see ghosts/twilight things and create the open condition for ghosts on. He can create it himself with the ectoplasm spell (before this he needs to find it another way) and then he can also then use shape epherera to make it into a rating 2 weapon or 2 points or armor, only useful vs twilight things though but still handy sometimes.

    2) Amravanti Thunderbolt channels ambient energies and doesnt require a cloud or to be outside to work.(your thinking of the call lightning spell), Alter Conductivity reduces...

  • It all depends on the purpose of stacking templates. If a ST wants to throw a curve ball at some PC's who think they know it all then sure i can see a hybrid template doing that. But if its a PC just wanting to stack templates for power sthen that is for me is a huge red flag and i probably shouldnt allow it.
