    Work for tomorrow then, I’m tired now. I really enjoyed the Anima Meccanica (reverse possession is a inspired idea for magitech). I’m looking forward to reading Bannerets of Ameretat....

    I kinda wanted the legacy to be a middle ground between the Chrysalis and the Pure Sovereigns, where Chrysalis is what becoming what ever they think is perfect, and the Pure Sovereigns being the perfected humans. I guess this attempt ended up being a Guardian and Free Council version of Pure Sovereigns.

    The criticisms on that thread are valid here, but I’m trying to make a standardized version of the legacy. I have always imagined legacies having different paths, kinda like a skill tree in video games. One transhuman engineer specializes in cybernetics, while another has attainments...

    Thank you, I will definitely do that. Should I edit the post to be in that format?

    Name: idk, something clever
    Parentage: orders: mainly Guardians and Free Council, large minority are nameless path: mastigos or thyrsus
    Nicknames: something to do with the self as a concept, like a derogatory name something narcissists
    Background: This legacy is available to anyone as long as they have entered their oneiros at least once. Devoted servants of the Unity have difficulty gained this legacy as the symbolism of the legacy runs counter to that of their patron.
    Appearance: literally anything, generally unique. Guardians trend towards the styles of...

    2e Legacy Brainstorming

    So I have some ideas for legacies, but I have never made any before. I figured I could post the rough draft (or outline) here and if anyone was interested they could post comments and criticisms. Over time I could refine them into something usable, and edit the link into this post for easy access. All commentary and criticism is welcome.

    I would like to start off with a legacy that merges the physical form and the dream form. Hopefully it becomes something that somebody uses in the future.

  • 1) Can remote control allow someone to use a prosthetic hand to a similar degree as a normal hand.
    2) What practice would speed up a chemical reaction, just using matter.
    3) Does the spell lodestone create energy?
    4) Can a mage use lodestone to collect air pollution and concentrate it for easy collection?
    4.5) The only way to do the above efficiently is by using advanced scale to collect a large area, would pms trigger in every mage inside, and as long a they could see it, outside the area?
    4.75) what would be the average response of mages who didn’t know what...

  • This should probably be asked in the changeling version of this thread, but does sacrificing a goblin fruit work? I’m going to guess it doesn’t, but I still want to know. Also where is the rules for mortals and hedgeways? I can’t seem to find it.


    I’m using the stranger paths side bar on page 221 for my evidence, which does say you can make it into the astral. Admittedly that side bar is really vague, and I can see somebody having a different interpretation....

  • Well, you get infinite reach on spells that works on something brought in that doesn’t need to be long lasting. If you can bring it out, and the spell has done it’s work, then effectively you have usable infinite reach. Say like using mend with all the reach options, usually requires 6 reach to make instant. Demesne aren’t hard to acquire in point of the game, but this a demesne of every path, that nobody can steal. The oneiros has some restrictions on how the spells can be used, but surely that sounds useful at some point? If you are looking for a more practical answer than that, I at least...

  • As long as one stays in the oneiros, and in safe conceptual areas, I would think it would be far safer than the real world. The unlimited reach on every spell in the oneiros is a nice bonus. Honestly it’s probably one of the worst paths to lichdom. Astral time flows differently, and there is no telling how much you body ages while you project outward. It is nice if you need to die, or are expecting to be killed, and still want to live though. I doubt I will use it in the legacy I’m building as it is rather impractical.
    The clear best use of it though, is to project physically out of...

  • The idea is that the “real” body stays permanently in the oneiros, the projection can only escape by falling asleep in the oneiros, so the meditation option is perfect. I’m fine with no clothes or clothes being your skin or something weird. I don’t think equipment fits the spell. The idea is the project spawns in places where one would sleep, like on your bed, or in a tent. The idea is that it is somewhere where you have truly slept, and that is at least conceptually safe and restful.

    This is kinda based off a interpretation of bloodborne, where the beasts were forced to have...

    I had typed a exhaustive and quoted response to the answers, but I think I might have accidently deleted it when I tried to quote Isator Levi. Is there any way to avoid that in the future?

    1) I meant a ai that would register to mind sight, like a animal created by life making. That would seem to be a thing, as otherwise you would have to puppeteer the creature.

    2) I am trying to create spirits of a mage's nimbus from a resonance of that mages nimbus. 10, 11,and 12, were to make a place of power that said nimbus...

    I don't have mine available, I think it was in the pirate section. If I it remember correctly, it turns your signature nimbus indistinct as if from a rote, and make ephemerals suffer quiescence....

  • 1) Could a general intelligence ai be made from forces only?
    1.5) could it be made from a forces version of shaping and craftsman’s eye?
    2) Would a spell that weaved the property “can spawn spirits” of resonance into a nimbus be entirely prime, or would it need some spirit?
    2.5) How horrifically bad of an idea is it to do to yourself?
    3) what minimum practice would needed to make a nimbus knot?
    4) can a prime spell lower the amount of mana needed for pattern restoration? Or increase the amount you get from pattern scouring?
    5) can a prime spell allow...

    replied to Nimbus focal points
    Wow, that’s not anything like I was thinking. Which is awesome. With the assumption of spells being in effect being focused nimbuses, the argument could be made that my experiment could result in a new spell. One spawned not directly of the mage, but of the conditions of their nimbus. Which is similar to the description of a Tupla. That has wonderful implications about the nimbus of the rapt. I’m going to have to pull out nameless and accursed to be sure.

    I was thinking about the problem from a different angle last night, and I came to the conclusion that a focused nimbus would...

    Nimbus focal points

    It occurred to me a few days ago that the immediate nimbus when activated from spending mana resembles a pulse of light from a emitter. One mana equals one pulse of personal resonance. This led me to wonder what other properties the immediate nimbus shares with light. What interests me most is the idea of focal points, as a well known property of light is to increase in intensity at such a point, inversely proportional to the size of said point. if the nimbus resembles light, then it would seem likely that the strength of the nimbus would increase at that point, proportional to the amount of resonance...
