    There are worse guides than Jordan Peele's Us as to how terrifying, and yet sympathetic, changelings looking to murder and replace their fetches are.

    Red's pretty much a changeling herself.

    For the record, the thumbnail is a biohazard symbol, but with some more mystical modifications, tying in with the Contagion's organic and disease theming....

  • I can't believe I didn't have this idea before:

    A Nexus street rat who was lucky enough to be the reincarnation of a First Age shaman-technician and thus had an instinctive understanding of Artifacts and minor wonders she used to become the leader of the most competent cat burglars in the city, only to be targeted as prime slave-agent material by the Guild; she Exalted and escaped as a white-furred rat, reunited with her gang and made them into ratfolk with a new mission - to spread across Creation and gnaw the Guild's heart out!

    If you want to know why I feel ashamed...

    Honestly, didn't think of it, but probably a good plan.

    Though on a related note:

    Demons: Metal favoring. Unchained were creatures of near-total rationality and divine intuition about their role in the world. Falling, and renouncing their place in the Million Ministers of Destiny, actually sends them closer into balance with the other five; they just combine their rationality and the profound leaps of accurate logic that Agendas allow with a fuller grasp of emotions. It's not a coincidence metal is associated with adulthood, either; in many walls, Falling is choosing...

    If that's what I think it is, I like that spin on the Contagion.

    Which is to say, it's still God-Machine Infrastructure, but the build and purpose of the infected area has become completely different....

    And I thank you for doing that, and Wizard's friends for thinking something completely different (and owe them an apology) as once you dwell too long on the crap sections of AO3, you have goggles for people with shipper goggles.

    (I remember the great Zutara Wars and Harrymort Apologia. The horror...the horror...)...

    I suspect it was Betrayed Feelings, Bitter Nostalgia, or something else like "Had a bad breakup."

    I'm glad it wasn't, since I'm sick of former allies turning mortal enemies having always been lovers; I especially like how it seems Raksi would happily move on if MHS would leave her alone, because she is not the one who cares about previous entanglements....

    Why didn't I think of that? I can see them being pretty good architects (the Sky Dwellers, anyhow; they do migrate, but their lands move with them so they can build stable structures, though never especially heavy ones), but they're still nomadic. I can see them having a cyclic monarchy, of sorts; the Whale People rule the combined tribe in the North, as the Sky huddle for warmth and the whale needs help finding food, and the Sky in the South, as the Whale find themselves weathering the currents and the island farms approach harvest time and questions of distribution and...

  • Updating a Wyld-Dwelling Culture to 3E and Playability

    See, I actually really like a lot the stable Wyld locations in 2E, the problem was that they weren't expanded on enough to be anything more than a pit stop. With Lunars: Fangs at the Gate fully posted, I feel like actually playing an emissary of the Wyld folk who wants to stake a claim for his people in Creation proper as the Time of Tumult's dreams make the Middlemarches too dangerous for his people. More specifically, I want to play as one of the Whale and Sky People civilizations who Exalted as a Lunar and is now allied with Admiral Leviathan to get at the secrets of Luthe, where he hopes he...

    Uh...

    Reading the previews, I get to Raksi, and, uh, I'm looking at her Intimacies, and I see a highly narcissistic woman who is utterly dedicated to the destruction of an archrival that humiliated and scarred her (emotionally), leading her to becoming a near-faceless dictator, sorceress, and scholar-queen who is beloved and feared by her people, absolutely loathed outside of her circle of intimates, and prone to histrionics both to intimidate and for the sheer grandeur of it all, and who both calls herself a villain and beyond mere simplistic morality, and cares more for having a...

    Point in Down and Dirty. And yeah, good points on the introspection and worrying about collateral damage; it's street-level Arrowverse stuff by default.

    Though, being the cosmic-level nerd I am, I'm also wondering what you'd find out in CofD Comics Outer Space.

    I suspect more Sunless Skies than Guardians of the Galaxy. Not that there's much of a difference beyond mood lighting...

    started a topic Superheroics and CofD

    Superheroics and CofD

    Something inspired by the Mage Chronicler's Guide, how Deviant uses a bit of superhero media in its DNA, and having watched Captain Marvel (it's fairly average for an MCU film, about Thor 1 quality - I liked it, but I know they can do better).

    Is there a market for noble vigilantes and semi-mythical flashy powers in the CofD? Because I kind of like superheroes, and oddly, a lot of the mythology comes off as the kind of somewhat deliberate mess that the Marvel and DC universes come off as, especially when you decide to have fun trying to make a cohesive whole out of it.

    Now I'm trying to associate splats with the Wu Xing. Keeping in mind my expertise in the five elements is Wikipedia articles:

    Vampires: Water and Metal. The dominant emotions in the Kindred are fear and resolve to continue living, with no small amount of grief for their living selves. This is why fire injures them so severely; at once, it melts a surplus of metal within them while their internal water rages to extinguish the fire, causing great injury. The fact that Water is focused by Metal also creates the Beast; the collection of emotions in them is always pooling, always strengthening....

    You can't think of anything unique to do with a literal living continent? One that can explicitly interfere, and does, with people who displease it?

    Even if it's just a home base for Lunars, trying to understand the mysteries of the often mercurial child of Gaia and Luna seems like a fine subplot. There, the story is just as much about the land as a very present character in any story, and trying to communicate and placate it....

  • Reviving:

    I kind of want to make a bat-totem necromancer Lunar who invokes every gothic vampire stereotype known to man. Especially he using his blood to turn a bunch of people into lesser "vampires," in reality an enormous army of batfolk.

    He's also quite possibly one of the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet, and evokes the image because it scares away would-be monster hunters, and makes the Wyld Hunt think he's blood-obsessed.

    I get the sense he doesn't like them, but knows that's his grief and self-loathing talking, and he tries to overcome it. Which yeah, makes him Coolest Orca....

    Apparently, Raksi executes the people whose punishments are beyond what even she does.

    Given how what would make Raksi a little queasy would cause most of Creation to seriously consider carving out their own eyes, that seems fair.
