  • I see your points here, and will consider them. And I think you are spot on regarding unleashing.

    I suppose that thematically, the limited personal glamour resources is much like legends of hedge magicians. Kinain wishing to use powerful cantrips would need to gather dross to pull of larger effects. Encouraging quests, ill-advised pacts with nightmare entities, chimerical alchemy, hunting out mystic herbs and dream beasts....

  • Yes. A great deal was left unspecified. My take on Kinain rules are as follows:

    Kinain begin with a Glamour 2 and Banality 3. Glamour may be raised with freebie points or experience points at the same cost as for Changelings. Though I would restrict a Kinains Glamour to their Faerie Blood rating +1.

    Kinain regenerate one point of Glamour a week, up to their maximum. They can make use of balefire or other wellsprings of mana and dross as a source of Glamour.

    As for Unleashing, I would say that this is only possible for Changelings and not Kinain. This is both...

    replied to Psions vs. Vampires...
    For my tastes I would have vampires be a disease from another reality. In the initial stages its host is "killed" and turned into a ravening beast. Over time the vampire would gain greater control and gain greater control, cunning, and psionic powers. Biokinesis and Telepathy would be the most common powers.

    Maybe all of the vampires are feeding tendrils for greater, and much more powerful entities in the vampire realm. Sucking away at the noetic energy on adjacent universes....

  • Thallain are just as vulnerable to Cold Iron as other fae. Their relationship with banality is all about ravaging. They and nightmares are all about feeding/preying on hope, joy and wonder until you are so scared of dreaming that you give up on dreams, making you more banal.

    That mortals best defense against these monsters (and other fae ravagers) is something even more banal, Cold Iron makes banality even stronger....

  • In my view of the setting, the efforts of the preternatural Wyrm and its minions has been to ravage all of the world. To drain all of the energy, wonder, joy and passion out of the world through its many tendrils of horror, abuse, and grinding tedium. And so, while this dreadful process is wringing the world of all light and hope, it is all to feed the might of dread entities bound up within the world and to kill the wonder that makes its prison possible. And with all of that power, the greatest of nightmares can break free...

    So along with spiritual apathy, there is to be ecological...

  • A person that I loved very much was afflicted with Alzheimers disease. Parts of her just disappeared. To the extent that she became a different person entirely. But I came to love that lady too. When she passed, you could say that I cried for two dear ladies.

    So it makes me wonder; if a person who carried a fae soul, lost that soul, and if the bodies original soul returned, might it be an innocent? The soul of a child, returned to a body now grown cold from banality, and bowed with the weight of years, is a horrible thought....

    replied to Gentleman's Guide to Scion
    That was quite entertaining. I appreciate how he acknowledges that the assorted gods don't really get along and are frequently at war. The way he puts it, the setting makes more sense to me. Its really a world poised between cosmic struggles and on the brink of exploding into dreadful conflict.

  • Once upon a time I knew a guy named Dare. He was a local musician who seemed permanently young. He was handsome, loved by the ladies, an excellent musician. The guy drank most nights and never seemed to sleep and was slim and fit despite a diet of beer, grease and sugar. He also was a wonderful person, taking care of house bound elders on his own dime.

    Then, over the course of a few months, he aged and died. Like a switch was flipped. It was awful. He just fell apart.

    This is how I think of Sidhe and other fae being undone. The light that shown so bright gets snuffed,...

    replied to TC Aeon like Mass Effect?
    Mass Effect and similar games would be a great intro to the Storypath system. You could even shoehorn in organizations like Aeon if you want, though I think that for full immersion you might want to have ME organizations instead.

    I've been thinking on aliens for the Trinity Continuum. Overall I think they would work best as an Origin. As follows:

    KROGAN (Origin)

    The krogan are a species of large reptilian bipeds native to the planet Tuchanka, a world known for its harsh environments, scarce resources, and overabundance of vicious predators. The krogan managed...

  • Aberrant was the most frequently played at my table. But my favorite was Adventure! I used Adventure in homebrew modern and space opera games, for which it was excellent.
