    replied to Is someone watching me?
    Interesting question, does observation make sympathetic connections, then this is valid though as a storyteller I'd require the question to be more finely turned because skins mites, rodents and various other creatures fall under the umbrella 'being' makes defining the imago and defining terms important to filter out some information. Knowing the imago's filters help know what does and does not fall under a spells purview.


    My phrasing would be like this "beings able to recognize me which are currently observing what they recognize to be me".

    That's still...

  • The character concept you just described wouldn't need to move around, the second point is a non sequitur. Being a dark succbuss does not require much moving in that era of France"s history, and is indeed quantifying the dark succubus must also be a traveler is inappropriate for such a concept during that time, as travel was uncommon for vampires at that period.

    Lets assume she is competent, politically adept, far from stupid, and thus not dead for simple recklessness. She did embraced a historic figure of some note after all, and that wouldn't be an easy feat to claim such a...

  • If I was pitching this I'd include Geographic and relic limitation to the Devotion. Such limitations might be the Devotion can only be learned directly at and used within a certain radius of an active worship sites of mystery cults dedicated to the deity. I'd note there is a real life temple of Set in Portland Oregon and San Francisco California, and having vampires wanting to rekindle ancient Devotions is a neat Chronicles of Darkness explanations.

    If a covenant specific discipline was part of these devotions it should not be dragon scales nor thesban sorcery, but Cruac. The worship...

  • There is no need for Preversion. Here's a rhetorical question, why wouldn't a sire 400 years ago, before the era of the modern notions freedom and autonomy, NOT blood bond thier childer?

    Receiving a shipment from his sire that includes a Reliquaries created by his sire each month keeps the stage 3 bond, possible keep enough Vitae to rise each night, and the bond allow the Archbishop Prince to feed via a Vitae tithe to supplement his need to use the abilities granted by the blood.

    Who says a Prince can't be beholden to outside powers?

    Honestly most vampires...

  • Look at your smart phone. Think of the work that went into it, the internet, and websites it access. Consider that the phone an imbued item, and programmers, website admins, and search engine optimizer as the "enchanter". Now consider why you have an easier time ordering pizza from miles away than listening to a conversation across the white room your question takes place in.

    The answer is the tool does most of the work which is front loaded by the creator, and is isn't too dissimilar to technology and lay people's use of it. Mage just puts the power of a whole development...

  • One thing immediately popped to mind:



    This means if the NPCs are smart, clever and wise they won't choose deity names who's story elements are something they wouldn't be okay with.

    Choose Fenris? Be savage, hunger for light, get trapped, be released to the doom of the world (maybe just your world, like your friends and family), plunges the world into darkness after devouring the light, all of which is particularly appropriate themes for a mage's dark story arch.

    Choose Immanuel? Be a great healer and rebuker of the wicked but also be painfully...

  • Very Lovecraftian, except replace human slaves with countless servitor races like the shoggoth, starspawn, deep ones, and serpent people, with humans being an insignificant accidental byproduct.

  • Are we both talking about this post? Because it makes a digital piece of equipment via the Forces Arcanum, using Mind Arcanum to access actually data needed to fill in what the caster doesn't innately know. Also has the advantage of being able to hand the device off to someone who isn't even a mage. If we are talking about different spells I am sorry and hope this clears up the confusion by including the reference....

    Have you tried 11x17 card stock, with it set to booklet? I think that may get you close, you may need to fiddle with the settings.

    replied to MtAw: Mage Assassins
    Real life: There is this story I've heard repeated about the Vietnam war, about a volunteering recruit that when asked why he volunteered in his examine he frankly answered "Because I want to kill people". He was not allowed to join. (And for good reason, people willing to kill are not the same as people with the active desire to kill)

    I think we can draw anologies to Awakened conflict. Assasin is a word dripping with religious fanaticism and allegations of drug use to alter the mind to make people killers in its origins.

    Normal people and by extension normal...

  • No such thing as "optimal" without context and to at what. The more you specialize the more whole aspects of reality you'll have no expertise in or defense against. The more you generalize the less raw power you have in any one topic.

    Really is a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors, and going around with the notion "Rock is strong!" just makes a character more blind to thier own fault. A better way to think is "I am a Rock, how do I make sure I only run into Scissors?" That's wisdom.

    Also not bad advice in real life....

  • No, it like saying you can use Matter to make a coin that favors one side, like making both sides heads. Or more relevant saying you could use use matter to make a pair of sneakers and black outfit to help with stealth, or using Matter to make a poncho to help with survival.

    The point is equipment gives bonuses to skills, and Matter can make objects, and programs are equipment too, and are governed by Forces.

    Dice Bonuses reflect many different things, just because mind grants skills (which os mechanically reflected as dice rolled for a skill) doesn't mean it monopolies...

    Goblin leaves... I'd say it'd require prep work of a fae with Goblin Healing to work on mortals, perhaps in the form of crystallized sap which is then smokable.

    As far as affects, they should be amazing and plot worthy, increased Strength, Dexterity, Presence, and Stamina but causes Persistent Deprivation when not under its affects. Perhaps it'd cause an aura of power that can be seen as a mien that even morals get while under its affects, mortals with a mien are bad news for sure...

    Never mind it attracts a True Fae with the title "The Interventionist"......

  • Also, don't forget any rank 4 or higher spirit's natural attacks act as banes, as any being with Honorary Rank (*cough*Some Uratha*cough* and Spirit adepts).

    Also the rock from the bottom of the Missippi is a great idea, but what adds to its symbolic power over water? Maybe a rock or gravel from a levy would be better? The Missippi river has a lot of levies to control its flooding.
