  • Now the tough question; what if different splats share a group? Cult (in Mummy) is technically a shared pool merit, like Safe Place, but that isn't true of other options.

    In "The Pack", it does reference a pack of werewolves who have what is probably an Arisen as a totem, implying that their pack is also a Cult. How would that work?

    What does it look like if an Arisen recruits a number of Sin-Eaters to their Cult and they form a Krewe with it?

    What if werewolves and Bound form a pack/Krewe together?

  • There is a merit in 2e, Inherited investment or something, that is one of your ancestors got invested and you inherited the pillar. It even says the Arisen can't reclaim it unless you join the cult and got invested again.

    replied to [2E] What is god's Mantle?
    Canonically Apollo took on Helios's mantle of Theoi sun deity, but Helios didn't side with Titanomachy in the real world mythology. They are separate entities, but Apollo absorbed Helios's role historically. In Scion 2e, this could be Apollo usurping Helios mantle (becoming Apollo Helios. Just assume any epithet a Theoi has was a mantle at one point.) Won't be sure until God drops because this sounds like divine tier play, rather than an incarnate demigod claiming a different deity's mantle for their original divine form. That doesn't make sense to me, better a God usurping another's mantle....

    Satchel's plan works as long as you don't drink from Anpu's chalice; choosing to suffer rather find relief from the journey.
    I liked that addition.

    My copy arrived yesterday. Given this is Australia, I'm assuming that means most of them have arrived by now

    Given the separation occurred before any timeline that includes Irem (the "Time Before"), and we only have the rhetoric of the Orders to go on. So yes, it was the Exarchs separated the Supernal and the Fallen, but the hows and whys are contested. More on topic, Irem only exists in timelines of the Fallen World. Supernal intrusions, Imperial mysteries, verges, ruins of the Time Before are all things that aren't really compatible with the Judge's servants. Attempts to restore 'Atlantis', (the Silver Ladder's stated goal at times,) absolutely can qualify as something the First and the Last...

    Yes

    Still yes, but that feels like something outside an Arisen's power level. So would suggest trying to eliminate the Mage before archmastery. If only you could go back to before the Archmaster erased themselves from the timeline. Oh, look there is a storyteller chapter in this book...
    Fun fact about Awakened cosmology, it puts the Supernal outside our reality/universe. Though it does put forth the seperations as unnatural, so maybe they aren't walking violations of the First and Last Judge's respective laws...maybe.
    The Judges would not be fans of the Exarchs (who did...

    Cult is a merit, so that might be the logic chain. I'm more confused by the placement of the details on Tombs, given I generally consider them as an interlinked unit.

    Yeah, I think it was meant to be bolded like 'Sekham' and 'Virtue and Vice'. Time to add it to the errata form! Must report

    Wynterknight I consider the following to be most of what you wanted. I vaguely recall someone suggesting that AI's treat Technokinesis as one of the Telepathy modes, but since AI don't really show up in ├ćon, I understand why that isn't stated anywhere....

    I've seen non-zero numbers of those in BoLD...but the Gentleman Gamer already hin5ed as much.
    FYI, those write ups make a lot more sense now that I've seen the new rulebook.
    Heck, some of the Utterances make more sense....

    I know I said it is unlikely we'll see much in regards to Dragon characters waiting Legend outside of maybe the Greater Wyrm section of the Dragon Companion...
    But I just looked at Titanomachy again and there is quite a few draconic Titans, which got me wondering about Draconic Scions (or Legendary Heirs).
    The idea of being both a Heir and a Scion simultaneously.
    Since we have a couple of days before the character creation preview drops and this silly idea won't leave my head,might as well find out other people's thoughts on it.

    Also kind of hoping to unlock Denizen...

  • Spoiling does track to even the suggested effects of Bereschligost (or Chary for that matter), as it is a single ability that gets 'more powerful' as you gain more dots which is not dissimular to the physical disciplines (eg Vigor). While this benefit is spread out more (bigger penalty + more attributes that could be targeted + less obvious marking), Spoiling on it's own is a one trick pony. It's devotions (Blood Solutions) are more varied, allowing you to do a lot of things subtly to the drinker, it very much does not store Vitae. At least not in the Ordo book.

    I think there was...

  • I'd honestly say it something akin to the Norvegi and the Mekhet; similar manifestations of the curse, grouped together and the significant deviations are considered to be bloodlines. It isn't as though the Mikhaili are fully playable as written (lacking details for their signature discipline). As you point out LostLight the Amari 'quirk' fulfills the same role as Bereschligost, even if it resembles a bloodline boon.
    Given that the do share the "Winter King" nickname, I can definitely say that the two groups have been conflated by scholars a few times even if they are utterly unrelated....

    Okay that I can help with, though just a quick reminder that Mummy: The Curse is faux proto-ancient Egypt, so there is going to be some deviation.
    The cross over between M:Aw and M:tC in the Dark Eras Companion (Princes of the Conquered Land) is the primary source for this, though Dark Eras 1 does hint around these ideas in the To the Strongest chapter (thank the Weret-Hekau for that).
    As you may know, Mage associates the Soul with the 5 subtle Arcana, which in turn matches the whole "5 Pillars of the Soul" concept used in Mummy....

    I do find it a little disappointing that these write ups including a number of factions with no examples in the patrons.

    I really do need to reread Dreams of Avarice. Sorry everyone.
    I had previously considered it as unreliable, in the same vein as the Book of the Deceived. And they were written in 1st edition, before Shades (and Fiends for that matter) were writen.
    But we shouldn't dismiss it; they are our sources.

    I will say that it has been confirmed multiple times that Ghosts aren't Souls, which implies to me they aren't 'part' of a soul either. Obviously that is an unpopular position and to be fair, nothing comes close to saying that in primary sources.
    That said, given how they...

    Yeah, I still think Shades are the Sheut/Death arcana aligned aspect of the Soul.

    The common dot powers are the "Okay". The initiate dots powers are supposed to be restricted. Described on page 148.
    So Hues aren't supposed start with initiate Arcanoi. So Weather Eye (pg 151) is good, but Enshroud (also pg 151) is forbidden.

    Some of the Inverted Callings are already Callings (Adversary and Destroyer off the top of my head), albeit non standard ("Titanic") ones.
    Now I don't think that is a problem, though I would argue that being able to use Knacks from both (say Guardian/Corruptor) is a function of Awareness. The 'fact' that certain Callings have more knacks through also being Titanic Callings feels like a feature, so I'm not going to call it out in the error forms.
