  • The Deathless do take damage that way. Unless you have a Relic weapon or a flamethrower, you can shoot them, stab them, slash them, bludgeon them, crush them, chop them, and kick them in the shins and it’s all bashing until you manage to wrap it around into lethal. Their natural regeneration helps hold that off, too....

  • It means you may or may not have money of your own, but your cult is potentially loaded and totally down to spend it on... um... luxury linen bandages, or whatever the well-to-do mummy is into these days.
    As far as the other goes, I’ll need to look over it again, but +1 sounds like it was probably what was intended....

  • This is the way I see it. Your corpse is there, at all times. Without you in it, though, it’s just a mummified corpse. Once you’re in, it becomes the sahu, filling out and shaping it with magic. It is tied much to the mummy’s self image, so it will closely match their original appearance during “early” Descents. Now, say they incarnate into the body of Roman gladiator cultist (hell, we’ll give the mummy the Resonant Lifetime Merit for good measure). From that point on, the mummy will likely look like the Roman gladiator every time they get up going forward, as the sahu will be shaped...

  • Whichever you’d prefer, really. The intent was to get some of the feel of the Dead levels from 1e with this Merit, where the mummy could have their pieces wrapped or stapled back into place to help with resurrection....

  • I can’t wait for everyone to learn the answer to that question. Finding ways to get them out where they could cause trouble in the world was something I gave a lot of thought to when I wrote them....

  • @TyrannicalRabbit
    Tier 3 of Tempest’s Fury doesn’t automatically have the effects of Tier 1or 2, but it does boost those effects if they’re used together.

  • The seven detailed in Chapter 1 are the most active, but the others still exist. Not detailing them allows a lot of design space to address them later, giving them the same attention that the first seven received. It allows writers of later supplements to flex their creative muscles without being beholden to a one paragraph entry (which would also necessitate getting rid of other content to make room in the core, and I can’t think of any of it that would be expendable)....

  • I wasn't sure whether that was coming back or not. In case it is, when Second Chances wrote the unique decree Affinities, it is intended that those do not count against the maximum. Those are a happy little bonus for declaring that decree.



    As I wrote most of the new Merits appearing, I take this as a personal compliment. Thank you.



    There are multiple Merits that play off of the Ritual Sorcerer Merit, allowing access to more rites in one way or another. If the limit is particularly bothersome for your games, you can easily houserule that once...

  • I’m glad you liked the Merits. I wrote most of the new ones, so I take it as a point of pride that they’re inspiring character ideas.
    SCI wasn’t one of mine, but I don’t believe it’s intended to be inflexible. I thought it permitted adjustment, but only gave one example. If it’s indicating that it is the only possible way, that might need to be addressed when feedback collection begins....

  • Now that the preview with the powers has dropped, I can tell this story. It amuses me enough that you’ll probably hear it more than once, especially since it will be copy and pasted rather than typed again each time.
    This is definitely the most “meta” story I have to tell (I believe meta is the appropriate word here). I was hired to write one of the Utterances, specifically the one that would become Invoking Tempest’s Fury. This occurred after it first appeared in the prologue game Matthew Dawkins ran for Red Moon Roleplaying. That means that for our delightful game of nonlinear...

  • I’m glad you’ve been enjoying the Merits. If you think Ritual Sorcerer should be three dots, I’d recommend mentioning it whenever the feedback sheet goes out. I made the requirements less strict to allow starting characters to have a reasonable chance of pulling it off without being severely limited in their available builds, and that would follow the same logic....

  • So, are any of the backers ready to guess which decrees were written by Second Chances and which were written by me? I think the only hint that’s been given so far is that Second Chances wrote all of the decree unique Affinities.

    The Deathless all originated from the same Rite. That doesn’t stop them from growing attached to other cultures, gaining the body of someone from that culture, or adopting it as their own and incorporating it into their cult.

  • Thank you for that shoutout to the fiends of Duat, Matthew! I didn’t expect them to be mentioned anywhere until the KS, so that was a pleasant surprise.
