  • Your millage may vary, of course, but it helped for me to think of Feeding as not quite being about fear, but about hitting certain narrative beats during the story. Need to get information from someone? That can be a potential food source, depending on how you handle it and your Hunger. You don't even need to intimidate them, sweet talking can work too, depending on your Hunger. Besides, even modern morality allows for and uses fear for certain institutions. For example, the justice system in part works due to fear of it. I think regular police work can feed the majority of Hungers as long as...

  • In general, as far as I’m aware, Heavy Arms nailed it.

    For my part, I kinda got the worst introduction possible, reading 1d4chan and Fatal and Friends thing about it way before I ever actually read the book. Honestly, I only got the books for information to work on a Mage legacy. It took a while to get over my bad impression, and actually read the thing, but once I did I found beneath the flaws actually was some pretty interesting and good ideas. A full on Second edition for Beast would be amazing, but that’s a long way off, if it ever happens....

    I’ll do my best. Of course, in my state, Republicans hasn’t actually been challenged in their position since before I was born. Of course, times have been chaotic of late. The future is not yet written. And the world will never be better if we don’t try for a better one.

  • Yes. Disquiet is a supernatural effect that influences people against your character. I would very skeptical of an argument saying it didn’t work. True Love empowering one to resist mind control is a common trope, this merit just facilitates that trope.

  • It’s difficult, like most things worth doing, but Promethean is a game about miracles. The True Friend merit subtracts 5 dice from any disquiet roll, and there are Transmutations to eliminate or subvert the harshness of disquiet. Sometimes someone just has enough heart to love despite the disquiet. Nothing says you can’t tell your life story to the old man in the shack, and he won’t sympathize. Sometimes, the world is kind. Sometimes, a flower blooms in the Wastes....

  • Think there is room for a legacy about embracing one’s mortality and getting the most out of what time they do have? Wanted a thematic opposite to a Prime/Mind Lich.

  • Right. I think was over focusing on the practice of bloodletting as a means to drain excess humours, which was my introduction to the concept of humours. I think I’ve settled on the imbalance being that the Tass drains away. That can lead a number places conceptually. I believe I’m beginning see your point about Purpose, when one loses clarity, one may fall back into what one was made for.

    I wonder if the Fire exstends into the Abyss, and if Gulmoth ever desire to be truly real…

    Heh, sorry for the belated congratulations then. You have much more dedication than...

  • Wow! What a passage! Thank you.

    The Amirani Torment seems in the general area, but their relationship with Truth is consumptive, quite fitting for the Humour of Yellow Bile. Oil’s poisonous nature forces confrontation with one’s artificial and purposely built nature. Yellow Bile is corrosive, and it burns like fire when the world doesn’t match what it should be. Tass…is hidden. It pools in sacred places, and highlights the essential nature of things. In Torment, Tass flees, leaving confusion and uncertainty in its wake. Simple Truths suddenly become unclear, shrouded in mist...

  • Hmm, hadn’t thought of the similarities to a Hallow. That’s probably a better foundation to base stuff off of. Which brings me to a kinda obvious realization in retrospect. The Promethean actually is going to be something like a Hallow, since they will produce Tass as their blood. I wonder how much blood constitutes 1 mana…probably better not to grow down that route. Anyways, the Promethean absolutely should twist the resonance around as a result.

    The creator is a Ascend first, apologize never type of Mage. That type of Wasteland is going to be *fun* for whoever is inside....
