    Nah, Dave confirmed that ending the spell and jumping back there sets it too....

  • Buying one at chargen with merit dots is easy to justify. If there are rotes you want beyond than your allotted three or that you can't use yet it basically reserves them and lets you learn them later without any in-character faffing about like finding a teacher....

    Edit: Nevermind, I figured out the answer to my question.

  • I believe so, yes.

    Also, one slight alteration the final version of the WTF book made was that Uratha also heal their regeneration rate (ie how much bashing per turn they get) in lethal every 15 minutes, not just one.

    Assuming they still heal one lethal at a time (so you get 1 back every 7 1/2 minutes), if a PU 4 or higher werewolf has 8 health or more (hardly unusual) they'll heal their final lethal damage before it gets upgraded and thus can't actually bleed out if they were just on lethal. Of course, a blow that takes you to lethal might spill over into aggravated,...

  • Even if you can't see a familiar by yourself, they can probably still manifest.

    Plus, if you can use their senses but can't see their frequency by yourself they provide a neat shortcut to doing so. They can see spirits/ghosts, so using their senses, so can you....

    That would probably result in you waking up in Antarctica or something.

    So, potentially, you could have a character pursue archmastery in order to undo a change they made when they first awakened?...

    Not being able to tell if someone is lying isn't the same as automatically believing them.

    "Give me the gun or you'll die"
    "I am utterly convinced that you believe that."

    How is this supposed to help hunt monsters?

    It really just seems like a stigmatic or offspring merit to me.

  • See, I thought you could telepathically communicate with a familiar too, but that's not actually mentioned anywhere. Just sharing senses, which isn't quite the same....

    Yeah, it's probably best to have the choosing be something that, while possible to consciously direct, will happen regardless. Either due to a mechanism in the shard or (perhaps better suited to 3e) a subconscious process in the incarnae themselves.

    Though actually while the obedience wasn't part of the geas there was a Cecelynian charm that could compel it. So getting around the issue could still have been a concern....

    replied to Please educate me on Obfuscate
    To quote the discipline: "Unless the vampire’s doing something to draw people’s attention — pulling a gun, or screaming at people — or he’s in a place where someone doesn’t expect anyone else to be, everyone around him ignores him."

    So if you're in someone's apartment and there's not a party going on, obfuscate will fail and the owner will notice you. Obfuscate 3, which provides true invisibility, is required to be unseen here....

  • When you use a time travel spell, the changes you make alter reality so that everyone but you remembers the new timeline but forgets the old one, and if you kill someone they'll suddenly be dead or whatever.

    Constant presence makes you ignore the changes to yourself caused by other people time travelling. So if they go back and kill you you won't die. But everyone might suddenly think you're dead....

    The "use on other people thing" allows you to use touch of shadows on humans. With two dots it only works on objects and animals (who may be the unwilling subjects referred to in the text).

    If you want to affect multiple people that's a devotion, Cloak the Gathering.

    Obfuscate 1 only works where people expect to see someone. The details are obscured, so you can walk down a street carrying a machine gun without issue, but if you're alone in someone's apartment they'll see you. True invisibility requires obfuscate 3.

    Create Truth is basically useless without advanced duration and extra potency....

    Like Mrmdubois said, you can't go back that far with shifting sands because it doesn't have a temporal sympathy option. Temporal sympathy only works with spells that say it does, and Shifting Sands doesn't.

    Oh, and apparently it does stick if it runs out of duration. So yeah, it's the sympathy thing that really limits it....

    I think the real difference between Shifting Sands and Corridors of Time is that the former only sticks if you catch up. If the duration ends before then you get shunted back to the present as if nothing happened.

    There are plenty of spells that only actually work if you bump up the non-primary spell factors. They never say it outright....
