    replied to Dragonblooded Inbreeding
    I could see some potential for inbreeding to become a problem if a Civil War does happen. Then, instead of being able to choose from all the houses, you'll be limited to the ones you're currently not fighting AND there are going to be lots of dead DBs everywhere. Granted, I'm sure there will be orders of magnitude more dead soldiers than DBs, but if the war happens, the Houses are going to decimate each other.

    replied to The Caul
    I think of the Caul as being like Australia. Lots of marsupials (like the ones in the back of the book) and dangerous critters. Both Luna and Gaia walked it together back in the day, so lots of wildness, Dogs of the Unbroken Earth, elementals, landscapes that strongly resonate with one or two elements, like deserts and mountains, jungles, primeval lakes, lots of demesnes.

    Dogs. Many animals get significant bonuses to awareness when dealing with scent and most Solar stealth charms don't really do anything to help you there.

    I still think hiring mercenaries is a better idea. If you can afford to buy thousands of slaves, you can afford to hire a bunch of mercenaries, give them training to make them even more awesome, and then you're good.

    replied to Buying slaves
    From what everyone has said here, it sounds like a better bet is to cut out the middleman and go around to local villages on recruitment drives, get a hundred or so people, give them the training and then go sack a couple of guild plantations, free the slaves there and offer anyone who wants to join up the option (adding in some glorious solar mind con... social influence to boost the numbers and their loyalty) as well as telling them that you'll be driving the guild slavers out of the area and stuff.

    Actually, why do you need this army? Who are you fighting against? Is there anyone...

  • Anyone converted Crystal Chameleon Style to 3e?

    Just what it says on the tin. Anyone tried this?

    If not, would anyone like to try it with me in this thread?...

    replied to I have my books, and I am happy
    Can you show us a size comparison between the 2e core and the 3e deluxe core? How much heavier does the plate make the book?

  • For my current game, probably DB, Sidereal, Exigent, then whatever order.

    In general. Alchemical, Exigent, Lunar, DB, Getimian, Sidereal, then whatever.

  • The main reason I wanted to split off Social Influence rolls from Craft was because Craft would have too many success boosters and not enough other charms. I picked Linguistics to be the associated Social Influence ability because it's already about making something concrete and, essentially, lets you "hang" Social Influence effects on a place, so it felt like it belonged there.

    That said, I tend to think that most art is going to be Inspire type actions which is where Performance often sits too, so I can understand doing things the way you suggest....

  • As a note, you could take a sort of halfway approach with this mod. Let Craft keep all it's current rules and everything, so you can do some social stuff with it, but just also allow Linguistics to make non-written, artistic social influence actions as well.

  • The way the current rules are set up, pretty much all the emotional reaction to a Craft project are in the ST's hands. Which bypasses the entire social influence system instead of interacting with it. This was an attempt to, if not fix it, at least provide a method where an artist could use the system if they wanted to....

  • A quick note about canon: The Heptagram is one of the four big secondary schools for Dragon Blooded in the Realm and I'm pretty sure that they don't have a town on the island. Now, you obviously don't have to care about that, but you might end up with some people assuming that all the students are DBs and stuff and I wanted to make sure you understood why.

    Anyway.

    8 ) Secret doors and hidden rooms abound at the Heptagram and the professors are aware of almost all of them. Rumors abound constantly of maps, magical or otherwise, that show where to find various lost labs,...

    started a topic Why Linguistics should be the "Art" skill

    Why Linguistics should be the "Art" skill

    Because of the way Ex3 is set up, Linguistics really needs to explicitly take all the "art for art's sake" crafts. Probably it should be renamed to Art or something in the process, but we'll ignore that for the moment.

    Generally speaking, if someone is trying to make a painting (or similar piece of art) in the game, that's probably a social action of some kind, most likely Inspire. Craft is not really set up to make social attacks. It has no charms which give it any bonuses or trigger on a successful social attack. All it has is every dice trick in the game so you...
