  • It sounds like a Quest in the CompĂșter Web, maybe crossovered into the Digital Web.

    Since these are spiritual entities, things will have to start here. The players may need to get the blessing of some powerful net spirit to keep the spiritual AI "farms" working and safe, getting the aid of some wizards versant in spirit magick and the net could come in handy, altrough that would risk the project leaking to less savory entities.

    I imagine Pentex will catch up sooner rather than latter. Nephandy likely will catch up (even if the players are very subtle, the Syndicate...

  • Much like the Background, there are no real guidelines. ST has to give Traits to your Avatar just like he would with an Ally. An Ally can have any kind of Traits: A sleeper ally ain't going to have Spheres, but a mage ally would.

    Now, we can *speculate* what kind of Traits should your tipical Avatar have. It would have been nice to have a guide on that, but there's none as far as I know. And Avatars are kinda misterious about what they are and what they can do. All that we know from the Merit it's that the Avatar will have Traits to match the form....

    Actually, he absorbed the very essence of the Yama King to steal the artifact that he then wanted to use in order to stop death. The artifact was in possesion of a spirit/thing that was leagues above Tou Mu in terms of power (that the archmage identified as the real Shiva), and refused to lend it to someone that wasn't a god - Voorn killed the Yama King to "wear" her as a way to convince Shiva that he was divine.

    The moral of the story being: Vormass it's terrible guest...

  • No.

    It isn't.

    It IS saucy, though. It's a typical source of story hooks, and not one too hard to make (esp. in a setting like WoD, where the characters tend to have tragedy embedded in their own powers). Also I find it tends to help to explain some of the more questionable choices of your character, like learning how to kill people and becoming a murderhobo adventurer.

    That being said: Some of my best characters (over various systems) had relatively good pasts. So, no.

    replied to Sphere Order of Usefulness
    Lord Revan Think about it this way: With Entropy I don't need to struggle trying to think on the fly (and quickly) how I'm going to sell to the ST that I can lower X difficulty this time. I don't need to stop to think how I'm going to use Forces to seduce the secretary, or Life to better hack the phone - Entropy directly messes with the dice. I don't need to beg or debate for ST aproval because *not* allowing a difficulty reduction/increase made with Entropy 1-3 "giving me luck" it's what would require an *explanation*.

    My experience it's that the least mental gymnastics...

    Werewolves are racists, but for a race that doesn't exist. There are no actual Bonegnawers being harassed in the real life by such misconceptions

    Whereas I can see actual rom being harassed by people that puts weigth in these stereotypes...but that's got nothing to do with you or your table. That the book it's racist doesn't mean that it's racist to play with it, nor with those stereotypes....

  • You're not just adviced not to use them, they're stated to be an EXTREMELY optional rule. Note that they weren't optional in Revised nor in 2ed.

    An optional rule's standing within the concept of "canon" it's a bit complex - after all, while part of the bible, disregarding an option it's as much following the canon as taking it in count. A table where Archspheres do not exist isn't using "house rules" at all (that's canon too!)....

    While the answer for mages it's no (albeit the Verbena tend to believe otherwise - which in itself could be an interesting factor on a chronicle of the ages), there are artifacts called Primers (usually books, but can be on other formats - like oral tradition) that substantially increase the chances of Awakening. However, there's no system - it requires the user to be "unsually smart and imaginative", willing to deeply study the work (likely dedicating years) and take the content seriously. Mages who make an effort of training sleepers to awaken may use these as a "last test"...
