  • How does using life on a werewolf in human form work? (cba checking, Can you only use spirit on all Werewolves in any form or need both life/spirit or only spirit? Form probably shouldn't matter as they are living in all forms too?) I'm sure it's been thrashed out and would apply the same to Sineaters if they also count as a hybrid thingy.

    In the same way mind can cross over various things by proxy of them having a mind, i think Life can too, Werewolves are living so life should work on them, Sineaters are too, but then sineaters also being deathly means they get shafted by death...

  • I wouldn't say vampires become alive when using vitae, they mimic being alive but are still dead. Therefore under the purview of death instead of life. Any life effect requires death instead.

    Arnt sin eaters in 2e counted as living beings melded with a geist (yes they died but the geist brought them back to life) instead of 1e? If that's the case then Life should effect their body normally, maybe needing clashes vs anything the geist is doing to it also. If a mage wanted to mess with the geist separately then that would probably only require death The way i see it is that they are...

  • As Tessie and i have said a few times now, it says

    The bolded "this spell" part is what we are talking about, personally I'm fine with soul window on its own allowing this. I'm not fine with allowing any spell to ignore sympathetic range because of a connected connection. Being able to cast an area scale Celestial Fire spell on your soulstone and everything in its range without space 2's attainment just because it is your soulstone is not ideal....

  • Their health and damage are real until they excise them and then they might not be.

    Im unsure if in 2e its now implied that archmages project some form of other body outside their golden road instead of leaving physically but either way catching one unawares outside its golden road is going to be tough so the best bet is to try to kill them inside their golden road with all the problems that might involve (getting there, fighting defenders + the AM itself). And after all, that if they have excised themselves so that they don't die when their health boxes say they should...then your...

  • Cant find any reference to this anywhere. Familiar and "Soul windows" mention it and that's it....

  • So the familiar condition does also mention this benefit.

    However, nowhere in the core book can I find where it gives this benefit to soulstones (or the connected level of sympathy) and I'm happy to just let only the "Soul Window" spell from Sos gain this benefit instead of every spell though a soulstone as a broad application....

  • Prefer to just think that that spell is a mistake and should at least say it requires Space 2's attainment. Is this statement wrong? ( i mean the withstand is 0 but that doesn't mean the attainment is not needed.) Since when has having a connected link to something mean you don't require sympathetic range (or a link). if Web weaving spell allows you to raise a connection to connected (it only says up to strong though, thank god) then one could improve your connection then cast any other spell without sympathetic range...

    It does start by saying "this spell" so it only applies...

  • Can you point out where it says that? Are you confusing the imperium for the Pax Arcana maybe? Pretty sure Rank 6+ spirits participate in the Pax Arcana and have equivalent powers to the imperial practices.

    If you mean the chapter called Inperium then that's about Archmaster's games to change the cosmos so its natural that spirits don't get to play in it, not being archmasters and all....

  • There is also a problem with covering fire and splats able to use defense vs firearms. Do they just remove their defense from the covering fire damage?

  • Depends on the character, the legacy? Since each legacy requires indoctrination (even self-created ones) each ritual/idea or method to create one is different. There are probably many self created legacies that are very very similar created in different parts of the world but have different methods of joining it.

    The text is very wooly on how long it takes etc so just decide for yourself for your campaign, it should require some effort but need not be super hard....

    Im still unable to find any reference to shielding causing non interaction between the target shielded and whatever is shielded against so perhaps somebody just interpreted it that way cos science. If somebody shields themself from bullets this does not mean they cant then pick up a bullet since that bullet isn't going to cause them any harm. I get the feeling many people think that if you shielded yourself from doors you could then just ignore all doors and walk right through them cos science says if you cant interact with doors then that's what should happen.......

    You obviously don't understand. I am saying that even when shielding prevents interference between two things (and I'm cautious that is even mentioned in the books as all i can find is "immunity/protect" from references, perhaps somebody infered noninterference from that) it doesn't result in what science would predict would happen due to that noninterference and that you cant manipulate the imago to cause effects that science says should happen. Nowhere have I said shielding cant cause something to not interact with something, I said when that happens the results are not what science...

    Nice dig, i understand physics. I also understand the practice of shielding. which beats physics with a stick.

    My evidence is there are no shielding spells that give somebody the ability to fly or wall crawl or cause an explosion or whatever else people try to say it can do because science says so because throwing science at magic wont make a blind bit of difference because magic shits on science and people with science degree's....

    Using the practice of shielding to blow up the world or let people fly off into space is stupid though. Because that's not what the practice of shielding does. Science might tell you something not interacting with gravity can now fly off into space but its a lie and what you end up with is not what science tells you should happen. Since normal gravity usually has no harmful effects shielding yourself from gravity wont seem like its done anything, when gravity increases to a point it might harm you then shielding will help.

    Yes magic ignores the laws of physics, so it can ignore the...

    This is the shielding oxygen from a person and making them suffocate argument all over again. Just remember that physics is part of the lie, What you think might happen when you "shield stuff vs strong or weak nuclear forces" probably isn't what you are going to get when magic is involved and it wont be a huge explosion or whatever...

    Also remember, shielding from gravity wont allow the subject to fly off into space either.......
