    I was going to say Abjuration mechanic expanded to Horrors and creatures with a Template.

    Perhaps there could be a Supernatural Merit that adds the mechanic Holy symbols of your faith in your possession are treated as universal Bane in terms of Exorcism or Warding. (By the way great Merit for Mystery Cult Initiations to bestow for faith based Mystery Cults) Possible have it be a variable merit 1 Dot being for a Specific Categories of Ephemeral Beings (Spirits vs Ghosts vs Angels vs Goetia vs ect...), 2 dots being Universal against Ephemeral Beings, and the 3 dot extending it to Horrors...

  • Inside out crossed with a mini-version of Voltron.

    Also if that Chronicle ended with reaching humanity I'd use the resulting human as a multiple personality Slasher in later Chronicles... with appropriate tragic filler story as to how that person got there after the previous Chronicle ended.

    Why? because it is dark, poetic and tragic, and that's how I like it....

  • I'd have one of their later milestones be merging together to form a single Promethean that is human sized and have them play different aspects of that being's personality. This would happen closer to the turning into a conflicted miserable human. Yay the human condition!

    I'd stat the being via the highest rating attribute of any PC and the highest skill ratings too, with all transmutations they all have, but run decision just like the linked video, and allow them to split a part into their individual forms.

  • Having a yard of sharpened steel violently shoved through you with the intend to hurt you does as a much damage as much as an ounce of lead hurled into you at subsonic speeds as far as the extent of the injury is concerned?

    I'd say that is about right, but then point out that's assuming the attack lands, and that's where firearms shines with ignoring defense most of the time (such as against mortals) and being able to reach out and inflict damage at range.

    Deadly is deadly, but ease of inflicting that deadliness makes firearms still advantageous.

    I'd also...

  • My friend John and I talk about this all the time and our little pet theory is the Supernal is just a sub-realm of the Abyss which is connected to mages and everything supernatural about the world the Chronicles of Darkness , from Uratha and the world having a spirit reflection, all the realms besides the material world, every Ephemeral Being and horror to the Templates are the consequences of long past Abyssal Intrusions into a small pocket of sanity floating within the Abyss. In the beginning there was only the Abyss and something in it created a pocket of stability which is a mundane universe...

  • Maybe it's unwise to do things that would likely alert those with prophetic ability ranging from Mehket and Cahalith Dreams, Knowing Practice of the Time and Fate Arcanum, the Omen Trance Numina used by Ghosts/Spirits/Geotia/Horrors and even the mortal merits of Cursed and Omen Sensitivity weeks or months in advance.
    Maybe it is unwise make an obviously supernatural effect so large it could be called a biblical plague without irony and would alert any beings hunting for the supernatural (which funny enough includes mages and others with build in magic detection ability) to search for you....

  • Exactly Platonic Form for the first question. First the term skeleton key is use, let me also introduce a more modern term 'master key'. Both are as simple as a gemstone or sword. Master keys and skeleton keys don't open a "specific lock", they open many types of locks. I'd say a good larceny or crafts roll, or the use of the encyclopedic knowledge or eidetic memory merits + having done research on master keys would be enough mundane help to know which type of master key to form the Platonic Form as, after that it's just a matter of making it. Basically it is the ability to turn something...

  • Oh? Let me check the page number of that....



    Seems your absolutely correct. For some reason I thought it reduced the strength of the connection a step on the table but that isn't so. So in that case it'd be immediately solvable with anyone with the Space 2, and from there they can use the Space 2 Attainment as soon as they get a Yantra (perhaps the massive emo-rain shower would be a good yantra?) to do all sorts of awful things to said being....

  • The PC need auxiliary several support characters in their lives, people whom the PCs really like and enjoy role play interactions with.

    Also in my opinion there needs to be a beloved sacrificial lamb. Remember the sniper only gets a single shot before the PCs know there is danger. I'd choose the obvious leader of the group, the one that is best respected by the group and well liked. That person suffers the sniper shot arbitrated fairly by all applicable mechanics which I would have neatly written out before hand on a sheet of paper. That PC should be shot in a way without any plot-tonium...

  • Like Voltron...

    Also the Attainments are wonderful, specifically Imbue Item. I'll note that's also the level you get Apocalypse so the ability to record mage sight or imbued items that grant mage sight would be some of the most common items (everyone that can Imbue Items can make them, and the utility is obvious and ubiquitous)....

  • Sounds like a Mystery! Focused Mage Sight to break through the levels of Opacity.

    Also
    40 days and nights is a lot of time to investigate. Being under the effect which when I check my Spacial Sympathetic connection chart indicates a Weak connection, but lacking a Sympathetic Name of the Anonymous Emo-Rain Warlock (AERW for short) knocks that down to less than useful...

    Soon as we get a Sympathetic Name though...

    If it were me and I were a Mastigos I'd start with Mind flavored Focused Mage Sight which well could give me the identity of the AERW but if...

    Portland Privateers
    After the fall of the previous Seasonal Freehold of Dormant Fire back in May 1980, from betrayal of cruel privateers that infiltrated the previous Freehold and held a mutiny which has come to shape the new Freehold of Portland Privateers, sometimes called Shanghai Stumptown, the Portland Metro area south of the Columbia river has been ruled by those who sacrifice others to keep the True Fae at bay while they revel free of most moral qualms. It can be said that all three courts with Portland Privateers focus on different

  • Memory holes don't seem magical to most people, even if they are unexplained. People will worry about drugs, illness, brain damage, mental trauma, and even blame simple stress for forgetting things. In general having a black-out is not seen as a metaphysical event.

    In real life at any moment your memory can fail, this happens to some people every day and everyone knows it is possible to happen to them at any time even if they push that knowledge to the very back of their mind and while that is frightening and disconcerting, it doesn't seem magical....

    And remember Scales are only 2xp if you don't meet the Coil requirement, so a Dragon can discover this quite early in his requiem with the proper research... say an Ordo that wants to embrace the mortal social circle of friends to make a hypothetically loyal coterie, possibly selling his ability to sire to those whom are assisting him with the Mass Embrace.

    327) The mortal mayor of the city is a widower who has recently remarried a relatively young amazingly beautiful and charming woman who has secretly gotten him involved with the underground nearly anonymous swinger's scene. That's how an indiscreet Davae Casanova that knows your coterie ended in an intimate situation with her as the husband watched... Strange thing is that her blood was supernatural, and not in a vampiric way! He says she tasted like wax and petroleum jelly. A "bit of research" (which is to say a quick internet search of local news) reveals the mayor met her via some...
