  • Seconded. I was very surprised to not see them in there. Not that it'd take much to houserule them back in, but still....

  • Summary of my impressions:
    • Needle and Thread are really fun in concept but, like Virtue and Vice, not terribly useful in play, nor terribly critical to how a character is portrayed or played. Touchstones, as they always do, suffer from the "Good thought process behind it, but bad implementation" issue as well. Maybe the better solution would've been to just scrap Touchstones and turn the Needle and Thread into Clarity armour, or ways to restore it, or both?
    • The Wyrd's longevity change just feels weird. In practice, it's not meaningful (Changelings aren't likely to die of old age),

  • A companion book is usually a book that provides extra context or information for the subject. I.E. A series companion for a documentary has extra pictures and factoids on the subject of the documentary. It's something that complements without replacing.

  • You might consider integrating more the dark temptations of academia; the things that produce a cycle of self-expansion. The need for funding in academia is so dire that a 2017 Nobel Prize winner (Jeffrey Hall, whose work contributed to identifying circadian regulation mechanisms in flies, which were also found in people; a whole new model for understanding our body's regulatory systems) received his prize after he'd been forced to close his lab due to lack of funds.

    This is a feature the world over. The financial crisis crushed academic research funds, and they're slow to resurge,...

    replied to Sympathetic Casting Too Easy?
    Something also worth remembering is that, unless you're already sympathetically connected to the target, you need to cast Borrow Threads to borrow the sympathy, as Katana said. So that means that you're casting and maintaining two spells, before you cast any others. If you're Gnosis 1, that means you're casting with +2 Reach automatically applied to any spell you cast over your limit. Only when you reach Gnosis 3 can you start casting through a scrying window "normally", and that's before you include the +1 Reach for casting through a scrying window.

    So let's say you're...

  • I have some general feedback. It's mixed, but it always will be in the first draft, and I'm still digging into it, so I'll likely find more stuff I like as time goes by.

    Stuff I Like

    -That Bridge Burners now are targeting the things that lure the Gentry in, and, indeed, that those things do lure the Gentry in. Dreams, hope, creativity, etc., are now all dangerous. Bridge Burners being willing to cauterize the good parts of life to get rid of the painful ones is both a very understandable motivation and yet incredibly horrific. This dual aspect that all beauty also carries...
