    Some probably do. I imagine a it depends on the purpose for which the working was built. Some are only needed for a certain time frame, others are intended to be as long lasting as possible, some a task, and others are probably meant to be convenient to the caster and thus would fall apart without.

    Course I'm not against the idea that one might be able to design a working using themself as a lynchpin to focus the energies and forces of the working through....

    Well in the more abstract Beasts do have the easiest time making friends with other splats.Not necessarily a huge combat advantage, but hey not terribly bad to have friends that might give someone pause before they consider attempted homicide.

    As for combat it's not like the Beghotten are propped up as the alpha predator species, so not unreasonable that they can claim to be dangerous even if they might not be able to take absolutely anything they come across....

  • It's less that they teach about the Ignis Divine and Luna and more they acknowledge the existence of them and that the two are powerful gods. That said they don't teach much beyond, "Yes there are gods for the sun and moon, but it is best to leave matters concerning them and their favor to the clergy as they are powerful gods and could bring great ruin were someone offend them accidentally."...

  • Holy crap that does seem like Shadowrun during the build up to the higher magics and cyberpunk themes. So sequel hook at the end will be dragons getting loose and at least one running for President I guess....

    That's if it's stored Elsewhere. Has a very different result then if the Solar has a tendency to misplace things and it resulted in the charm storing things, elsewhere. :P...

    replied to Solars starting the game with Artifacts
    I'd figured certain signs are just assumed that someone/something has at least attempted to loot the place. Like if it's revealed that the really nice hill near town is actually a burial mound because suddenly there's a door in the side then its a safe bet that someone or something probably went in or came out around the time the door opened. Now obviously this assumption can be correct or incorrect, as a tomb door could have been revealed/opened for any number of reasons, but I certainly wouldn't hold it against a the local village if there were attempts to dissuade people from going in by saying...

    Second and 3rd circles maybe since they're more powerful and probably get harried a bit, so they might just handle a thing of interest or two and then head home. A first circle I'd imagine can stay until forced to go home, or it decides to head back. Would potentially make first circles who've slipped a rather useful or interesting resource depending on what one could do....

    replied to Slow Tyrant Lizards
    Nah Tyrant Lizards are a predatory species that had to evolve to deal with a world where freaking trees might turn into spiders and eat them, I don't think they'd evolve along the same route as the T-Rex. Plus if I recall last I checked T-rex were also carrion eaters not really predators so probably enough branch to say the two aren't much the same. Or just the old fashioned, slow walkers who take long steps.

  • I don't think both can do a full feed off the same target, that's why I said or use family dinner. As for why one might walk away, it might just decide they want no part in what's coming up in the other's lesson.


    Being undecided on an issue would lead to being percieved as able to go either way. I've known tons of people that if you say you don't really have an opinion on certain political things they'll immediatly jump on you saying how it is irresponsible not to have an opinion because this is really important and while you're at it you should totally be on their side of...

    replied to Charm Concept: Claiming Fallen Weapons
    Honestly might work as an upgrade to call the blade. Call the blade only works if your weapon is within short range and then you need to beat a dc4 check to get it if there's anything impeding the weapon's flight to the solar. So if someone is standing on your diaklave 10ft away you're ,potentially, not getting it back unless you manage to will it to bypass reality to get back to you. So saying it allows one to pull an unattended weapon in the same range might work.

    replied to Where in Creation is Slavery Illegal?
    PlotVitalNPC I'd say it depends on what they can do. A well trained and skilled gladiator slave is probably still worth more than a lizardperson who has no skills and nothing going for them aside from being a lizard.

    I believe Paragon doesn't allow its citizens to be slaves and are fairly accepting of people wanting to become citizens. I know in 2nd there was note that it wasn't unheard of for slaves to try and escape to Paragon with the logic being that if they became a citizen then they couldn't be recaptured and sold.

    replied to Kill Six Billion Demons
    On the blood ape thing from what I can dig up it's never been stated who makes the Blood Apes. All three cores just say demons of the first circle and to my knowledge they don't get statted in other books. Someone said that there had been intent to name them as progeny of Sondok in CoCD: Malfeas, but they say the line was cut.

    replied to Kill Six Billion Demons
    Well there are also the various demon spider subspecies that make up the Anuhles. Those just end up being made by various 2nd circle demons, so not unreasonable to presume that certain subspecies of mimic might arise from different demons. Granted this would end up making a case whereby you'd have mimics that only look like beds, only look like chests, only look like doors, or only houses as opposed to just the ones that swap form as they get bigger. Still it would cover the check a player might make to figure out what line the chair that just tried to eat them came from.

    "You're...

  • Hmm you know You are Lost has interesting potential to hide people. If they aren't being hunted by someone with a mystical ability to track them then wherever they're going becomes significantly harder to reach. There's a scene in Anansi Boys where Spider makes it so Fat Charlie can't get to his own home, this actually ends up at the point where he hires a cab around the corner from his apartment building and the driver can't there until they give up in the early morning. You might need to add fear is contagious for that trick, but it would be interesting. If nothing else spend Satiety and they...

  • I imagine if two Beasts ended up going after the same target there would be some conflict as soon as it was known the other was involved. Though I imagine unless it was the aforementioned case of being exceptionally opposed to the other Beast's lesson or something then it would probably just result in two arguing over who's getting the big meal and who will be stuck with leaving empty handed or just feeding through family dinner.

    Though it would be kind of interesting if a peace between two Beasts with an irreconcilable lesson conflict just decided to force the breaking point, feed,...

    Two questions. Is a Sidereal's anima banner like a Solar's? You know has inherent powers, can flair up and all that stuff. I can never remember.

    What does a Sid's banner do?

    I know that it hasn't been set down for 3rd, but I'm mostly operating under the assumption they have anima banners because I can't think why they wouldn't....

    replied to How to play the Dreaded
    I'm thinking part of what made you feel influence didn't fit is how the book words it towards the idea of having pull with people in high places or something to that effect as opposed to just being the local legend. Though yeah the idea of just being able to cite random incidents seems within the bounds of the merit. Especially if you go with points where people are just misinterpretting what happened and such as the reputation grows. Like in Alloy of Law, there's a scene where Wax is told about how people see his first bounty and then clarifies what actually happened. Basically the story is that...

    Not really rules that say that prereqs form the latter charms, but when trying to figure out how stuff works it helps to see what its related to. In this case it seems like a pretty clear move from Dipping Swallow enabling you to "perfect" your parry and be able to use it at max regardless of circumstances and then moving forward to being to use those parry conditions in Hail Shattering to make your opponent less accurate. Since the alternative in the wording would imply one just wills f* ups to happen and that just doesn't feel like being a master of melee combat to me....

    I would say that since Hail Shattering Practice is an offshoot of DIpping Swallow Defense then it can't be used if you're not parrying the attack. So I'd say you can't follow it up with something like Drifting Leaf Elusion. Upside the other attack doesn't have to be melee in order to be targeted just able to be parried....

  • I kind of get the idea, although I'll point out I don't recall any of the Nightmares providing bonuses to anything. At least not in a capacity that you probably wouldn't have inherently by recognizing the situation. Like lets face if you're in a situation where the blind terror of a high satiety run away nightmare would benefit you're probably justified just going into a blind panic and running....
