  • Mages learn High speech during their awakening.
    The symbol of this language are the building blocks of all magic, so i think that at this point a mage is like a child who had just learned the alphabet.
    He can potentially write anything, but he is still limited by his unfamiliarity with grammar.
    Considering that until a mage start casting spell he probably has never met anything paradox related, and that from Supernal realms no info on it can be gained because it contains only symbols of truth, a new mage would probably know nothing about paradox.
    Probably he would start...

    Well, re-reading dice pools rules this is correct.
    Physical intensity and frenzy apply bonuses to rolls, while transhuman potential increases the attribute for the action duration.
    Then vampires would be more able to overcome penalties, like defence, but the net attack bonus cannot get over strenght+skill+vigor +5.
    Promethean with low azoth have smaller bonuses, but raising it they can reach similar damage output...

  • I suppose newly mages knows how to use basic template abilities, mage sight, mana uses ecc.
    They would probably start experimenting on the three arcana dots they have, and by casting those spells they would start to understand paradox and develope Praxis and Attainment.
    In the first days they would probably analyze a lot of things with mage sight.
    Lucid dreaming would probably be reached instinctively some days after.
    After the pneuma expires, they would start to use mage sight to discover ways to recover mana.
    Mages feels the connection to the watchtower, and could...

    It s a good explaination, but imply that it should be possible to lash out also against Face in the crowd, don t you think so?...

    Thinking about it, it seems strange to me using Lash out to interrupt a mental Discipline, as in Majesty and Nightmare it only negate its effect.
    Maybe it s an error.
    May i ask to Rose Bailey if i m wrong?...

    From core book you can lash out only against Cloak of night.
    If not, i don t understand the utility of the Shatter the Shroud Devotion...

    I agree that a simple tier list is not very useful.
    But as a Game master who frequently hosts crossover chronicles, sometimes i find useful to compare each splat s abilities, it helps me to better tailor the story for the players.
    That said, this kind of thread tends to become quickly "i put him vs her in an arena", where i would like more a discussion about a broader range of abilities....

    By the way, is it possible to destroy a bastion?...

    True, but the mist form has half his normal speed, so you can outrun the vampire, until he is forced to hide at dawn.
    Also to steal the breath the vampire must still win a grapple and it s not automatic...

    About beasts, it seem that the quote you pasted doesn t refer to the Soul communion ability, but to the Open primordial pathways one.
    The latter can in fact summon your lair into the physical world in an instant and allow you to escape, but it s hard to use outside some resonant places or situations

    About prometheans, the max pyros turn is lower but the pool is greater, and plumbeum has a passive ability that double the duration of the boost, so in this case a promethean can reach levels slightly lower of vampires.
    What i forgot, is that a vampire in frenzy receives a...

    Mages can heal innately bashing and lethal with Mana.
    Also, beasts using soul communion don t disappear from physical world, but controls their horror instead of their bodies

    Also, a Promethean with a Ferrum Athanor can become quite strong, and if you consider the Transhuman potential innate ability they are only few dices below Vampires...

  • It must be said that the book states that Deathmasks don t give social bonus, but also that they MIGHT give social penalty.
    It depends probably on the story of how you obtained the masks, and if your character legend is appropriate probably he can still carry them without causing hostility....

    I agree.
    As far as i know mages can cast mind spell to protect their bastions, and the beasts equivalent of the bastion is their lair (with a lurking horror defending it), but other splats are completely vulnerable AND unaware of oneiromancy effects (only more resistant as the power stats adds to Fortification)...

    Then i suggest to create categories:

    Combat
    Investigation/information gathering
    Social
    Mobility
    Equipment creation/gathering
    Etc...

    And put every splat in tiers associated to each category.
    After that, you can have a better idea of which splat is excellent in more areas
    You can also give a placement score for each category and sum the totals....

    I think that it mostly depends by how you define power-level.
    Do you mean:
    -strenght in combat?
    or
    -ability to solve a wide variety of problems (combat included)?

  • Some time ago i posted a question about how pact works, and i m still confused a bit.
    The core states that only people directly affected by the switch has their memories altered.
    The player guides also states that you can trade items or professions by virtue of how observer recognize the asset as an identifier of the pact-bound.
    Then let s make two examples:

    A man who sells his wife, they have a family with two children, the man s father and the wife s sister.
    In this cases obviously the wife memory would be altered, but does other family members memories as...

  • About memory in a bottle, the book states that it allows to "store" the Memoria condition, then the person who drinks it receives the same Memoria condition with the same charges.
    As the Haunts rules states that you can add Enhancement once the Haunt condition had been already activated, it seems to me that if a Sin eater with Memoriam 4 drinks the bottle, he can then add Actors.
    What it s not clear to me is if the bottles must be used only one time by drinking all of its content....
