  • Maybe it was 21c Hermit's comments but one of you got me thinking back to material on balance and power creep. I just started remembering the sourcebook Legacies: the sublime. Near the end after all the Legacies were introduced it started offering advice on how to homebrew Legacies and one of its strongest points was to not create "super" Legacies, especially super combat Legacies.

    Never create Legacies, or really any content, that forces everyone to obtain the same just to compete. So "super" Legacies are only permissible if restricted in scope and focus. For...

  • Okey then.

    I may have said something like this before, but now I should put it together.

    All the Attainments in this Legacy will be unusual. Not based on some conventional Praxis that you could practice for.

    Prime will provide an in-Duel advantage. Perhaps an opportunity to break another Door with an Exceptional Success? Or become immune to another offensive Arcanum with the same? I am thinking of allowing the use of Yantras in the Duel and containing the consequences of the same within the hypothetical space. Like "sacrificing" the same sacrament...

  • We will see, anywho.

    The idea of this Legacy having exarchal resonance despite being opposed to them brings up some interesting questions. Before the Exarchs Ascended the Supernal must have somehow defined them as tyrants, assuming that is what they were. So just as other words are used to define any particular word, there must have been some pre-Exarch symbolism that allows brutal concepts, practices, and philosophies without referring to Them. But does it really work that way? We know enough about how the Hisil works to understand that not every spirit of broad phenomena is super...

    About the reality warping nature of the Duel.

    It did say that it "literally" made the winner more right. I don't think that in-universe the developers can use the term "literally" the way we do. The term can be used for hyperbole (though I don't like it) but how can you tell what is hyperbolic in an ultra-absurd setting? A werewolf can do battle with stationary like those from "paper mario and the origami king", and it would make sense because the Hisil allows for that. If we seriously had to deal with that then the term "literally"...

  • Getting back to the Duelists:

    I say we should focus on the basics. As in almost everything up to the first two Attainments. I say almost because I don't care much for how they dress or how they organize. If you want to fill those in I won't stop you nor will I join you.

    Parentage: Acanthus, Adamantine Arrow. The Seers have been trying to get a hold of it and the Silver Ladder is still recovering from the beating they took during the founding of the Legacy. Chances are that both will gain access to the Legacy eventually.

  • I am back. Just want to get this out of the way immediately so I can concentrate on a longer post. One of you asked for a page number and another thought I was either mistaken or a lier.

    In the supplement "Nameless and Accursed", page 14: there is a section called "Consilium and Caucus". The second paragraph contains the passing reference that winning the Duel Arcane does literally make the winner more right than the loser by way of altering the Supernal.

    I don't think this property is because of the Exarchs though. I have my own theory.

  • To clarify: I have never made a Legacy before. That is why I wanted more help than suggestions and wanted to focus on one at a time. Since you guys did not choose I will pick for you.

    Duelists.

    As for your first imput, Hermit. Flambeau?

    As for the input of both TempleBuilder and Proindrakenzol. You must have missed some key points so I will bring them to your attention. In the supplement: "Nameless and Accursed", it gives an off-hand mention that through the Duel might literally makes right. Whenever you win in such a Duel reality adjusts so that...

    Since everyone is doing Legacies...

    For a while now I have had some ideas for some Legacies. For a while now I have been in awe of the concepts. For a while now I wished for awesome mechanics to match awesome concepts. For a while now I realized I am too much of an amateur to make those mechanics and too lazy to ask for help.

    Now I am asking for help. Three Legacies. We agree on which to do first. When I am satisfied or the community offers no further help we move on to the next Legacy.

    Not at all. Protecting a new status quo is not the same thing as cannibalism and joining ranks with the keepers of mass slaughter. Joining Krewes in this way is very different than the members becoming gods. No sin-eaters are required....
