  • I'm still confused by what Specialties actually do, when you get them, and what (if any) their Experience cost is. In the sidebar on p. 59, it says that they add a +1 Enhancement bonus on all rolls with that Skill... a nice bonus, especially since it specifically says all rolls with the skill, not just those where the specialty would apply. So any Scion with at least 4 dots in a skill always has a +1 Enhancement bonus on that skill, not just when it would be appropriate to the specialty definition?

    To complicate this, it says in the character creation section on Skills that specialties...

  • I don't see what would stop them, though it would probably be more appropriate for those who are Chosen instead of Born. Since all Scions need to take a Virtue track already, you're really just getting access to a couple of Knacks....

    It might just be because I'm coming from Exalted as my most recent real exposure to Onyx Path art, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality level in Origins. Not all of it is great, but it generally works.

    replied to Scale Problems
    Yeah, I think Scale still needs a number of explanations. Actually, I thought I understood it until I read the example on page 122. Sigrun and Hogzilla are compared, with them having somewhat similar stats aside from a scale bonus for Hogzilla given it's superior scale rating. Fair enough, so far, based on my understanding of Scale - one has an inherent form bonus that means that even though they're similar statistically, one is better at the issue at hand - in this case combat. (I'd argue that that form advantages could very easily be represented by differences in Skills, Approaches, or Enhancements,...

    replied to Sources for Mythology in the Modern World?
    The comic series "Fables" is more about fairy tale characters living in the modern world, but I seem to recall it including some mythological creatures as well. I could be wrong on this, as it has been a while. Either way, I remember enjoying it a lot and it would probably serve well for inspiration.

    Page 107, Healer Knack Doctor's Kit, Swift Bandaging should read "Remove an Injured Injury", not "Remove a Injured Injury".

    Page 122, Scale section of combat. The paragraphs on the right column is duplicated for the "Damage and Scale" entry immediately after, with only very slight changes.

    Page 125, Armor examples. The Kevlar vest tallies to 4 points, while armors should have a max of 3. Chainmail shirt tallies to 5.

    Page 146, Armor sidebar, indicates that Soft Armor functions as usual, increasing Defense, but that isn't actually what soft armor does according to the armor section of the book - it increases the difficulty of the inflict damage stunt by 1, while other stunts would...

  • To elaborate on the "borrow/sugar daddy" sort of suggestions, try getting into the good graces of your former incarnation's Circle, Lunar mate, Dragon-Blooded flunkies, Sidereal advisors, etc. Important relationships could last across multiple reincarnations, and it wouldn't be surprising for them to gift/loan you some of their own surplus equipment if you made a good impression.

    If you're far enough into the FA that it was recognized that all Celestials would eventually die, see if you willed some of your own past life stuff to your new incarnation. Considering that elder...
