  • After acquiring the 4th dot of Martial Arts (The Hand as Weapon), can a character choose to cause bashing damage or are their fists so hardened that holding back is impossible?

  • Pretty much. If your character is interested in new Mysteries, already learned all they needed or even focused on a more specific niche, then an update is in order.

    An example is starting with "Code as magic" as an Obsession. Then they see beehives organizing themselves in a system to run algorithms, which takes them to certain sections of a park that naturally created a circuit with ley lines and from there to an obscure part of the Dreaming Earth that is made of biotech (similar to the ones the Dragonians from Chrono Cross used). By now their Obsession might be "Nature's...

  • The Expeditious Explorers, an Obrimos Legacy of speedsters

    In short: A Legacy of speedsters that focuses on using extreme speed to meet the challenges of being an adventurer archeologist. The oblations and yantras reward organizing expeditions to seek out new and unexplored places in the Tapestry. The Attainments allow them to outrun vehicles, dodge attacks in bullet time, even phase through obstacles and more.

    Greetings everyone, this is a Legacy inspired by Indiana Jones, the Matrix and the Flash, specializing in maximizing speed. I also added design notes for those interested. Feedback is very welcome.

    Expeditious Explore...

  • That sounds correct to me....

  • Very cool concept, Peter is just trying to make the most of the second chance his past self got, but is more demanding of who he was. What a wonderful subversion of the classic haunted house.

    One thing I didn't understand though, I thought you always felt an impending sense of doom and seriousness when signing a Soul Pact, the Tapestry making very sure the mortal understands "yes, this is the real deal", plus the requirement for a blood signature just adding to how ominous it all feels.

  • The rock solo from the first Quickening in Highlander: The Search for Vengeance is a close second:

  • I am not sure what you mean by Praxis. A Praxis is just a spell whose Imago you practiced so much that you can make it higher quality more reliably, like the recipe a chef has made a thousand times. Its only used to learn Attainments in some cases, but is otherwise not related to how Legacies work.

    Regarding unusual Attainments:



    I think you are stretching the meaning of atypical way beyond the intent. The Attainment need to have equivalents to Practices and roughly equivalent power.

    A counter Haunt ability, for example, is the equivalent of...

  • B is very out of the norm, so it draws my curiosity.

  • Tough choice, that is a very nice list. I would say new ways to customize characters and antagonists, so z-splats, magic items, powers and some pre-made chronicles.

    Basically, things players can leverage to flesh out their characters (magic tattoos, bonded relics, occult mutations, etc) and a toolkit new GMs can use to easily setup a chronicle. The rules are pretty easy to understand, but building an entire cast and setting from scratch can be intimidating.

  • Probably throw some Death into the spell too, otherwise you will suffer soul loss after being revived.

  • Yep, you can choose not to Withstand, but its all or nothing, no partial Withstands. Which means that a Thyrsus can cast Shapechanging on a Sleepwalker and, since its duration primary, they can choose to Withstand the spell until necessary, giving them a wolf or t-rex form with an "on/off switch"....

  • That makes me wonder, how could one create a spell that replicates the regenerations The Doctor uses to reincarnate ?

  • I really like using the additional rule found in page 72: "All Mortals within a city must have Normality values according to a bell curve distribution, failure to do so will cause a character to undergo a Normality Check due to an abnormal distribution of Normality. Your character counts towards this distribution, meaning that their arrival or departure can cause cascading Normality Checks in NPCs, this is normally a problem".

  • A small note, you are missing the close parenthesis on the hyperlinks. Anyway, reactions probably vary based on the Highlander, here are some samples:

    "Suffering was your Law, your Judges condemned you to an eternity of service, your patrons eldritch abominations gnawing at eternity. You and I have been puppets in a game we don't understand, its time we got some answers and our freedom" - reaction to the Arisen

    "Elizabeth Bathory was actually working under valid supernatural principles by serially killing, and you follow the trail she blazed ? You live...

  • Depends on whether its logically possible. If it is voice related, like having a more energetic, inviting or terrifying tone, then sure, maybe they practiced it. It could manifest as mannerisms complimenting their dress style, making them behave in an elegant manner or walk with a marked amount of confidence, that could have been rehearsed in front of a mirror. But if it is a strong cosmetic difference, then it wouldn't make sense if they didn't have time to recover from plastic surgery, and it would not justify how sometimes they quickly go back to their default look. Maybe they used some movie...

  • Animalism is not effective on shapechangers in animal form. According to the description of Shapechanging in page 152 of the mage core book, the mage seems to retain all sentient reason. The only caveat is that, without spending a Reach, they have to roll to suppress their strong animal instincts. Which means Animalism would automatically fail, since Dominate would be the correct tool. An inexperienced vampire will likely be left confused, while a more senior one will adjust their strategy to uncover what kind of being they are talking to or even consider a diplomatic approach....

  • Makes sense, I was thinking too much with a physics train of thought rather than symbolic. Do the effects of The Outward & Inward Eye stack with Zoom In ? Since one expands the field of vision and the other the distance you can see, would using both with the mile wide sight effect allow the mage to see everything for miles "on a plane" ?

  • Does Velocity Control need to target the source of the collision to reduce it's damage by Potency or does it grant that effect merely by being on a subject that was sped up ?

  • Given a current population of 8 billion humans, having 220k immortals means the probability of someone being one is 0.00275%. Which means meeting even one should be considered exceedingly rare, maybe in some of the biggest metropolis you could meet more than half a dozen. Sounds about right to me, its a very difficult power to acquire and survival is challenging, especially if they have any sort of steak in the supernatural community....

  • I think that is more of a scientific explanation rather than a symbolic one. There was sunlight in the area, in the same way that the area could have a rock concert stage until that morning. Since you are targeting the area as it existed back then, rather than any individual item, it would summon everything. In the same way that a flame could be summoned if it was within the area, even if the flamethrower that created it was not within it....
