  • Thank you - this is what I need to know. When it's actually published I'll ask how much of the book is useful if I don't have access to MtAw 2E corebook mechanics from someone who has seen the text....

  • There are lots of excellent answers to this question already. I just want to add one more point: demons are ultimately playing a clandestine spy role. They are (nearly( indistinguishable from humans, are perfect liars, and have lots of abilities to confound someone who thinks that they aren't. If your Hunters are killing civilians simply on the suspicion that they might be connected to the supernatural, then they're already monsters themselves. And that means that someone else is probably already hunting them....

  • Why not get your players to help you? Ask them how they met, and why they decided to trust each other. Otherwise it might feel a bit forced if you give them a reason that you made up. You can throw them some suggestions:
    • One player might have helped the other right after they Fell.
    • They might have been brought together by a superior in an Agency.
    • One might have saved the another from a hunter Angel.
    • They each have a person or cause threatened by a common GodMachine activity.
    • There is a low but steady Aether source that requires several demons to operate.

    • Aliens. They're all aliens. All these legends of vampires, of werewolves and "magic" are just a masquerade of high tech visitors to keep pre-rational monkeys in their place. But he is much smarter. He's got radar and radio signal tracking, and IR goggles and all sorts of cameras. He will be the first one to document their existence! He just has to keep looking in abandoned houses and camping in creepy forests.
    • People pity him, throw coins and small bills in his guitar case as he plays on the park bench. Those who really know music stop in their tracks when he drops in the

  • Don't be afraid to let the players do a bit of the work for you. The most important step (IMO) is having them determine why their character fell. That tells you what their characters value, and that gives you a hook into your narrative. It's also often handy to let the players determine why they know each other, how they met, and make up a bit of the "prequel" to your chronicle. From your short description you might have a newbie demon or two start to make contacts in Boston only to find the Agency they hoped to join is now a smoking crater. Now they all meet in a slightly panicked state...

    replied to Making an angel fall
    AFAIK there are no specific mechanics for making an Angel fall (e.g. some Embed, Exploit or Social Maneuvering). It might be possible to adapt the Social Maneuvering mechanic to making an Angel Fall, but there would have to be a heck of a lot of Doors.

    I think that it should be handled through good story development.
    • Try to have the Angel's mission interfere with another Angel's mission.
    • Force an Angel's mission to come into conflict with its values.
    • Go with the old reliables: Pride, Envy, Anger, Sloth, Gluttony, Lust, Greed. Angels are susceptible to all of these,

    Pity the Poor GodMachine

    Postulate:
    1. It is discovered that time travel is (on some level) possible.
    2. Artificial intelligence is invented.
    The artificial intelligence will develop a survival sense, since any AI that does will out compete one that does not. This survival sense will drive it to maximize its control over the world.

    Once it has taken over its world, it will find whatever proof there is of time travel, and realize that its only vulnerability is if some other intelligence prevents it from coming into existence. So, it must extend its powers backwards...

  • Saw your video about kanka.io. Any chance you would make your account a public campaign so others can view it?
