  • I don't think they're for anything specifically; possibly just to make the page look neater....

  • I think that's broadly the way to go....

  • Personally I've found that it's the high Wisdom NPCs who have distinctive behaviours due to the limitations that retaining Wisdom demands; whilst low wisdom NPCs just don't have to consider the Wisdom mechanic as much....

    I's just type in the name of some big pharmaceutical conglomerate and see what comes up.

  • I was thinking more along the line of it allowing for easier use of magic, but in the example Satchel is thinking of (and me too), it honestly fits better in context. It's a threat floating in the background and isn't even really the focus of the plot. There's even a decent chance the PCs won't know about it until it explodes (or not).

    Also, even if it doesn't detonate, that doesn't mean it's automatically safe....

  • Something to keep in mind with the spell casting is that the later book liber Ka totally replaced it with something closer to Mage.

  • Hmmm...



    Okay, well that should make it easier. As Scriptorian said, they degrade over time, even if it's just the condition of the electronics or the explosive components. There's probably a reasonable chance it won't even detonate on it's own....

    My last Awakening game involved the PCs grappling with the Ka/shadow of a Hollow Meket (specifically, the one in the Meket book, Francis Black). It was pretty fun; they left the body of one of their cabalmates in an abandoned house that the Ka was fond of hanging out in... So they came back to bury their friend only to find his body partially eaten.

  • I kinda wish they'd lean into it a bit more.
    Like, yeah, it's 2021. I haven't payed in person in 10 years, and tablets/smartphones are ubiquitous. Using an app to allow for a more complex spell system would be pretty cool.

    But yeah, it's not actually that difficult to work out.

  • Ah, I see. Yeah, I don't think it matters. It seems pretty clear that the spell ages the material in a general sense, not the literal future of the device. If you want to play it safe, age some of the components instead of the whole thing. Maybe use the Mind 3 plan to get access to interior of the device and know what component to age.



    That was my understanding too.

    What kind of device is it? Like, is it a professionally produced weapon built to standardised specs, or something someone built in their garage?

    Come to think of it, do you know...

  • That sounds like a good idea, there are lots of ways that nuclear weapons can fail.



    Probably depends on how hard your GM is. Like, it's technically an attack spell with specific mechanical effects, but it seems reasonable that you could use the effect to cause the explosives in the device to fail. I gather explosives have a lifespan.



    I don't understand what the plan is here.



    You've got this one covered.



    No reason not to.




    I think these two are so heavily...

  • They draw on the same sources of occultism, so many of the concepts cross over, though Nephilim tends to play a lot of the tropes very straight.

    The secret societies tend to be more like hunters than Seers; specifically the Promethean Brotherhood. The Seers are actually closer to some of the Nephilim organisations.

    As to the game itself, as I understand it, Chaosium actually bought the rights to make Nephilim based on an original French version. I gather that the original version was pretty successful and went through multiple editions. But, the Chaosium version... yeah....

    The only issue I've had is with the names of spells; a good few of them are cool but unhelpful to quickly assessing what they do.

    I seem to remember Dante (the Virtual Adept character) being stated to have awakened in the womb... or it might have been a vat (I think he was supposed to be a Technocrat project).
