  • Just started a new game. This one's something between Sherlock Holmes, Leone Abacchio and O-Ren Ishii

    You may want to get better acquainted with the system before making additions and modifications to it, then.

    Battlegroups have an inflated character sheet over their average member, mainly by virtue of Size.

    Their attacks are all withering attacks, but they damage your life if you're crashed and they don't gain or lose initiative.
    Withering attacks against them don't give you initiative for the damage (but do for hitting and for crashing/zeroing magnitude). Decisive attacks against them deal a lot of extra damage automatically.

    You can command them...

    That's a way to go about it. Flight of Separation makes you a swarm. It gives you evasion against non-aoe attacks.

    This is powerful. Blood of Boiling Oil is similarly lethal and a good baseline to use.
    Swarms...the Dune Swarm is the one i remember right now. It is a single creature sheet, composed of hundreds or thousands of little creepy crawlies.

    The merits that relate directly to it being a swarm give...
    Minimum withering damage against it is one less than normal, it ignores difficult terrain, has an automatic success for most combat actions (attack, movement, sensors against ambushes).
    When it is controlling a grapple, missed attacks automatically aim at their target, and...

    I'm already purchasing an extra in Brazil and haven't heard of that. Please tell me more.

    That seems the easiest way to do it, yes. Dunno how to balance it, though there's probably not much to do. At worst it has to be a Simple evo.

    replied to How does the Wild Hunt ever Corner Lunars?
    If they are on the rim of creation they're reduced to near irrelevancy.
    Having a chance to escape does not mean having a nearly guaranteed way to escape, and overall you are treating the latter as far closer to the former than it is....

    So. This thread is basically swinging between "The wyld hunt is an extremely potent and motivated institution with a lot of resources and a lot of expertise in dealing with just about everything any exalt has ever thrown at them" and "yes but there's this one trick...."

    If you want to admit a perfect wyld hunt, you can't.
    If you want to admit a perfect getaway from the hunt, you'll be talking at, tops, 3 or 4 lunars in the entire world. The hunt has 396 other lunars to worry about.

    You also underestimate exalts as a whole, apparently.

    A necessary breather though. Season will probably end with Nemesis.

    No surprise Weller's death stuck though. Remember: he tried to clone himself. As in, he failed.

    Also, more tasty transhumanism! Memories, cognitive and motor, mixing up!

  • It's worth noting that no matter how big a business is, if people gravitate to it just about every other business will crop up, as those peoples have wants and needs.
    Entertainment will crop up, fast....

  • First thing to notice is that natural resources are not the only path to wealth. So a barren place can still be viable or rich, as long as whatever they do is worth enough that the people there can earn enough to just buy whatever else from outside. So your demon-hospital city can be viable if that's all it has outstanding to offer.

    Geography's your first, and maybe biggest, obstacle. Whenever people have to travel to get what they want things get expensive, fast. Anywhere farther than a couple days of travel is a huge endeavour. In the hundred kingdoms area means you have a few hundred...

  • I don't see how any of that alternates off my statement. Large centralized powers playing at whatever they can to remain large centralized powers is pretty normal.

    I missed one thing in my statement, though: Friction and normalization.
    Friction helps turn wariness into mistrust. Normalization gives an idea more inertia (be it towards more prejudice or less). With neither things should pacify themselves over time.

    Anyway, this is veering off helping the op....

  • mhmm. I agree. Sowing dissent on this basis alone doesn't work very well, nor does it make for an interesting creature.

  • Short answer is yes, though. "Being wary of the other" is a very, very basal reaction humans have (and most anything else, really). Racism derivates from that quite easily.

    If "heredity" is a thing, any given people that managed to exist mostly uniformly will form a mostly uniform ethnicity. This is especially true of people with geographic barriers, like the whole of Creation.
    And heredity is a thing in Creation.
    So most populaces will be relatively uniform. And being surprised or wary of something different, or assuming better off the similar, will...

  • N1 feels limited. Faking ethnicity might be enough to disguise as part of a populace, but that's about it. Neomah can do better sans for the demonic presence. But Neomah's a good baseline for you.
    N2 feels similarly limited. Demon Summoning already does just that, if that's what you want it to do. A creature that "can attack from miles away" will be a big deal, as that's a big deal even for the exalted. It might be off the table for First Circle....

    replied to Best song for moment of solar Exaltation?
    I certainly did. I don't like to recommend those kinds of songs as game aides because the lyrics get in the way, tho. If that's not a problem, "this will be the day" remains my favorite piece of the series. It screams the return of the solars....
