  • That was mostly an example. Snakes to sticks, though, that's definitely one I'm using. (Or rather, 'make object into reasonably similar animal via breath of life.')

  • Metamagic is always weird and tricky. My current thoughts are leaning towards something involving life-giving - improving others and bringing shit to life, temporarily or permanently. Sticks to snakes, clay figure to golem, blessings of strength and speed, etc.

  • oh no, that was in reference to

    " (Quranic commentaries point out, from the way Jesus is narrated to have addressed the Jews in his time, that he was the only prophet who would not call those he was sent to 'o my people', and then explain how his having a Levite mother and no father entailed him not actually counting as part of the people of Israel, hence he counts as part of Muhammad's community)."

    Which only makes sense from a non-Jewish perspective. From the Jewish perspective this argument is equivalent to 'I am a boat, and this is an admiralty court.'...

  • The idea of an anti-messiah is theological nonsense to Judaism, and the Jesus thing is complicated by the fact that there were a ton of self-proclaimed messiahs at the time; to the Jewish perspective, the difference is that Jesus is the one whose personal cult made it big. Temporal success has no relation to theological truth, especially when Jesus is unable to find any textual basis for a lot of his arguments rather than personal charisma, claims of messianic power and...welll, Paul isn’t helping, either. Decisions made by early Christians to pick and choose what parts of the Law still applied...

  • The other tricky thing is finding places to put Lover as a Calling, since having Calling access is important, and while Lover is not solely about romantic love, this is definitely one of the more uptight pantheons. (This is part of why I decided to keep Ramiel even with Enoch's naming Ramiel among the leaders of the Watchers.)

  • I could probably cut some of the Orthodox angels without losing much thematically but they also provided one of the only places for me to give Frost access.

  • My own take on the group, the Shekhinah Heavenly Host uses a larger and somewhat eclectic group based on the various angels I was actually able to find details on between the Abrahamic faiths, Enoch and selected other apocrypha and deuterocanon. My list is: Azrael (Angel of Death and Renewal, largely folk Judaism and Islam), Barachiel (Archangel of Blessings and Family, mostly Orthodox and Byzantine Catholic), Cameal (Archangel of Strength, mostly Judaic and some Christian lore), Gabriel (Messenger and Left Hand of God), Samael ha-Satan (Accusing Angel, Angel of Disaster, Tempter of the Righteous,...

    Could Silk Armor be used to gain evocations that play in the arena of doing things that help martial artists offensively?...

  • First up: Christian, not Judeo-Christian. Jewish angels don't "fall" and become demons. An angel can go bad, but an angel is an angel is an angel - the Watchers remained angels even if you accept Enochian texts in the Jewish tradition. Jewish demons are not and were never angels, but instead something completely different and closer to Islamic jinn.



    You could probably do it with the few pantheons that distinguish themselves from being Actual For Real Gods - the Orishas and the Tanrilar are the two that spring to mind. Both claim that they are qualitatively...

    started a topic Apis, the Sacred Bull, Netjer Outcast

    Apis, the Sacred Bull, Netjer Outcast

    Apis, the Sacred Bull, God of the Ptolemies, Ex-King of the Dead
    Aliases: Hapis, Serapis, Hapi-ankh, Aser-hapi

    Apis wasn’t always outcast from his own pantheon. Long, long ago, he was just Apis, son of Het-Heru, Apis the Bull God and intermediary with the great and powerful. Ambition, truly, can be a curse. Apis’ role expanded from merely being lord of the sacred bull and a source of prophecy. He was quick to ally with the invading Theoi that followed Alexander, and he was propitiated by Alexander, among other gods. He was said to incarnate again and again as the sacred...

    Is it intended that Legendary Size Lunars can largely wipe the floor with Dragon-bloods at chargen, then, since DBs have no real way to deal with Legendary Size besides 'keep throwing attacks at it' which seems...less than ideal for a Legendary Size being that is also smarter than an animal.

    Does a Tyrant Lizard totem Lunar who lacks the charm to be able to be Legendary Size just become a non-Legendary-Size Tyrant Lizard?

    If they require that charm to be able to exist at all, that seems kind of crazy given how difficult to deal with Legendary Size is unless you have a Charm specifically to deal with it, since...well, explicitly, Lunars can and should be able to be Tyrant Lizard totem, and that means it must be chargen-doable.

    Does a Lunar need to do anything special to unlock the ability to wield a sword in gorilla form?

    Olive oil was still pretty common in Rome, and indeed the entire Mediterranean. It might not have served the same vital social function for Rome as for Athens and Sparta, but it was omnipresent. Pliny the Elder is noted as having written that Italian olive oil was the finest in the world.
