    The path of Wisdom hurts. The Warlock winces as his Imago settles and two futures diverge in his mind's eye. Regrettably, he lacks the puissance to raise his Mage Armor so soon after a spell. At least Ophis' shield will spare him if-

    "hrrrg!"

    His eyes...

  • Yeah, feel free to roll my Clashes for me in these cases.

    Also yikes, I knew Stamina 1 would come back to bite me sometime. I guess I get a Beat for having 1 health left?

  • Earth

    After recharging on the generator to top off their Pyros, Earth trudged with the others in the direction of Amalgama HQ. They huddled in an empty bus stop across the street from the medical building.

    "So...now we start a fire? Or get in their house, first? We're gonna want the Cathars to mess with the guards' heads if we go inside."

  • I had an Artifact with a similar effect to that in a game once. Most of what you want to do is under the Craft Fetish or Bind Spirit spells. You also might check out the Cartomancer merit from the 1E book Keys to the Supernal Tarot, which has a system for empowering your magic by drawing Fate-appropriate cards.

    Moonstone drops the kid-friendliness as his spell reveals the animating passions of the ghost. "Harmless. It can only show us pictures, not hurt us. The memory is tied to the poor boy's bedroom-"

    shriek!

    He stows the mirror and whips around. "Made her angry- I only read its mind! These...

    I don't think Naruto was around in 1996.

    Doesn't Mage Chroniclers Guide have a riff on this? I remember Captain America being a Frankenstein, which I love.

    Earth awakens.

    "So. We start a fire on their territory, we go in while they're runnin' around, we get the others, we break their expensive china and get out. I'm for it. Just as long as everything happens inside that's gotta happen. Without the spark, the Fire never starts."

    That felt like an echo of the vision, or the Frozen Pilgrim. Earth smacks...

  • Really flattered that my widely acclaimed example of grimoires in play warranted a dev response. No need to thank me by name, I felt the love.

    replied to Coteries at Higher Levels?
    Elder-level Vampire started to make more sense to me when I realized that the fantasy is simultaneously being 700 years old and also hanging around goth clubs and fighting werewolves in back alleys. You don't need to change the world, you can just hang out with your immortal badass friends and fight other immortal badasses whom you probably spilled wine on at Versailles. That's a fun thing to sit around the gaming table and roll dice for.

    Elders live in the present, not the past. If I were running a game for a coterie of old farts, my default pitch would probably be like "It's...

  • I like it, and not just because I like the phrase "loaded for bear."

    I don't wanna be antsy if we do want to spend more time making a formal plan, but personally, I'll go along with whatever you guys wanna do or just follow some general guidelines on the fly. I just wanna move ahead to the building, Time Crisis style. As much as I'm curious what Joshua's deal is, I don't see a lot more happening under the bridge for now.

    Moonstone's eyes get milky and faraway for a few seconds...

    But his magic holds out. It feels so good to say NO for a change when someone tries to mess with him.

    "Are you alright, Moonstone? I felt some ghostly activity being directed at you"

    The warlock grumbles:...

  • That looks good to me! Maybe a little generous with the non-equipment part, even. Personally when I'm an ST I tread very carefully around granting automatic success Conditions like Steadfast and Informed.

    Do we get one instance of the Condition for the group as a whole?

  • From Hell would be an amazing inspiration for what the Seers look like in London and how they use runewalking, if you're okay with something relentlessly bleak on a cosmic and personal level.

  • I definitely didn't mean it to give us a course of action. The idea is that you get the bonus while taking actions that advance your plan. I'm thinking of games like Blades in the Dark which assume that your characters have already made and are following a plan, while the players are playing out that "plan" in real time and establishing when situations come up "I brought the tool for this, we practiced this," etc. It's useful in cases like this where (IMO) it would be time consuming and tedious over PBP to plan in detail ahead of time, especially when we don't have all the...

    It's extremely chill that the dimensional hell monsters have sex powers and gain fuel by recharging their J/O crystal.

  • Per Chronicles of Darkness, building a plan is a Wits+Composure roll. Earth actually made such a roll (for a +3 bonus) in my last post if we wanna just run with that as the result of Scout and Mark 5's discussion plus Earth's input from Clairvoyance? I'm ready to go to the building, personally. I was expecting that the NPC hangers-on can help us with distraction on the way in, and then go off and do their own thing while the PCs work.

  • Arcanist your Elpis visions are a highlight of this game for me, I love the way you write these bizarre landscapes with consistent imagery. I think I picked up on who's important next. To the North!
