  • Fend off an assassination/sabotage so cleanly and easily that it makes officials assume the circle are accomplices due to not having been attacked.

    Steal wallets of all other competitors.
    Steal socks and underwear for all other competitors.
    Show up to a match wearing an outfit made entirely of the stolen socks of your opponents...

    replied to How do "Incarnate" Scions work?
    So Incarnates are kind of weird, but the thing is Incarnates are among other possibilities a god choosing to have part of themselves born as a mortal for the purposes of things like recreating myths, handling duties they can't as a god, or just getting experience stuff on the mortal level. Example part of Vishnu's shtick as it were is Incarnating when the world is in danger to solve the problem and save the world from said perils.

    Consequently it is possible to be an incarnation of Sun Wukong without anything having happened to the Monkey King aside from boredom. Now it is possible...

  • What scale are we talking for "mischief" and what are the restrictions in place on them? Like are they supposed to be in a dressing room or locker room between matches, are there days between rounds?

    I just would like to know since one of my first thoughts involved slipping laxatives or something into the drinks of competitors they don't like, and assassination.

    replied to Making a setting without Yu-shan
    Well it is kind of first question to come up is why does all of this change when something that wasn't originally part of Creation*, is no longer part of Creation. So it is kind of a question you'd need to answer on why Gods are now completely unorganized and absent a government and elementals are not even sapient.

    *Can't speak for 1st edition, but in 3rd and 2nd it was established that Yu-shan came after the Primordial War as the Primordials inhabited Zen-Mu.

    Well remember Fair Folk would also be existing around concepts. So a Rhaksha warrior is gonna be a major boon to your defenses and then of course there are whatever mystical abilities an individual Rhaksha would bring to the table....

    replied to The Olympics in the World
    Maybe a different name for the Scion Olympics . Like the Olympics are a competition between some of the best athletes the mortal world has produced, but then you have a different set of games where Scions of different pantheons sign up as representatives of their divine parentage, and the games range from normal events just with the boost that the competitors are Scions; sacred games as previously noted; or things taken up a notch like fencing is replaced by armed melee gladatorial combat and such.

    Mechanically they roll and do the thing based on the number of successes and so on.

    When a charm is brought in to do it, generally speaking it enables it to be done in a way beyond mortal capabilities. To continue your example of Flawless Brush Discipline, a minor aspect is that you replicate everything and you don't have to make a roll. Narratively its using essence to augment your native mastery to be able to copy everything written, or even drawn into a document, or whatever elements you need such as hand writting, at such mastery that the only way to prove the letter is false...

    replied to What exactly do Celestial Gods *do* daily?
    The way I've viewed it is that in most cases a god's job is generally observational with the potential for manipulation when needed. This is for scenarios where everything is running properly and discounting corruption and all that. So normally what would happen would be the god observes the river flow or the rain season and details what happens and how it all proceeded. This would be to enable informing other parts of the process so they could properly prepare or make sure things are going with accordance to how they're supposed to operate. Ie Weather Bureau would notify of how much rain an...

  • I think it was more that it kept coming up. The Wyld and anything in or from it doesn't show up in the Loom because its not part of Creation, The Underworld and things from it or of it don't show up in the Loom because not part of Creation, Abyssals don't show up because as far as the Loom is concerned they're already dead, things from Malfeas not part of Creation, Autochton same deal, the use of essence was at one point expressly noted to screw with the Loom and make it less accurate. It was a button that people liked pushing in the books like "This can be destroyed by absolutely nothing...

    replied to Your Headcanon
    I like the idea that the Jade Prison was the Sids attempting to cheat the fate expected and ordained from the whole vision of bronze thing. Like when the division of factions initially happened the plan and prophecies had just been a straight overthrow and the Jade Prison was something that was developed later on in the debate as a way out of the forever war.

    I'd also add to the stuff bought from Fey that just because it isn't an Artifact doesn't mean it couldn't be traded for something valuable as heck. Like rare materials which could be used for artifacts and sorcerery, or things which are almost literally impossible to acquire like say one of the infinite seeds or an actual frozen flame, etc.

    Where was the City of Obsidian mentioned? Came up in reading that it was made to scale with the largest of the Spoken and I don't remember that being mentioned anywhere.

  • True, but I've also seen far too many arguments in various places that operate on the idea that the Gold was absolutely the correct choice, morally, and for results and that the Bronze were totally in the wrong for not being willing to gamble reality on a 1 in a million or more unlikely prospect to be comfortable with the assignation of "right" to the Gold faction and assume the person means standards or willingness to do things. It does also lose a bit when one also makes the argument that "Right" would be definable by one's own moral compass alone and that the Bronze would...

  • I don't think phrasing as "Practical vs Right" is the proper terminology for it. As the Bronze would not have been looking at it as "Well that answer is obviously the right one, but we're gonna do this instead." I think practical vs idealistic, or optimistic would be better phrasing. As it would show the idea that the Gold would be more willing to take risks or longer shots for potentially better outcomes whereas the Bronze would not be willing to take those same risks if it isn't necessary for a positive outcome even if it would be less than the outcome Gold is shooting for...

    replied to Unbreakable Atavism ?
    Honestly, I just interpret it as "Your defense is so strong, that it drops non-aggravated damage down a level. Lethal sources of damage do bashing, and things which would normally inflict bashing inflict no damage."

    A bear trying to maul you is usually lethal damage, so unbreakable would downgrade it to bashing at this level. Whereas some thug in a bar cracking you in the face as hard as possible with their fist is usually something that is bashing ergo you take no damage.
