    If you haven't signed up for a game yet the prospects are pretty grim, I'd recommend checking out game availability asap....

    Went last year, had a blast at a 3rd Edition game called (iirc) Wyld Wyld West.

    I'll be there all four days this year, looking forward to the 3rd edition Dragonblooded game being run that weekend.

    replied to Steel and Iron: What's the difference
    That's it, thanks! I think it's the idea that trade, like other forms of infrastructure and bureaucracy and civilization, speak to a truth of universal compromise. The existence of the Raksha is to dominate the story or compromise themselves to some other entities greater story. To compromise themselves to a story that doesn't center on a character but an era, a horizon or a society? Blasphemy.

    Under this understanding, wrought iron is a symbol made real, and thereby a bane. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ At least in my mind....

    Huh, had I read through the thread fully I would have found an answer that says what I was trying to say, but more effectively.

    On the point of steel becoming mundane, I imagine steel as an idea will continue to be exceptional and iron continue not to be (in a bane to Fae sort of way) regardpess of how human thought or society changes because I believe it was iron as cast and not iron as conceived. In the same way that the infinite possibilities of the Wyld are cast into the (semi)-limited form of the Raksha when they interact with Creation, I imagine the bane is intrinsically linked...

    I always assumed the weakness was to wrought iron was a part and parcel of the Creation Spanning Trade Network... no, that's not its name, but the name escapese me.

    Anyway, I assumed that for narrative reasons the Raksha were weak to wrought iron because of its link to bureaucracy, institutions, and the mechanical realities of agrarian society. Horseshoes, fences, piping, ovens; these things subsume individual stories beneath the heel of a larger bureaucracy that works to sweep away individual assumptions for stable canon.

    Is the out of game basis due to a bad reading...

  • Our White Veil Style Night Caste has a Statmetal & Moonsilver Artifact partially based on Walters Razor Wire Gloves; though we took it off in another direction to allow for the control and puppeteering of targets.

    If I get the chance I'll pull it up.
