  • No problem. Well you could also have interest for other reasons as well. I've seen characters in a few games that take hardline stances against criminal activities in certain fields, sometimes moral, the more fun ones tend to be when these are just because they don't want people screwing up the results.* So maybe a mage doesn't want the stuff lost, misrepresented, or destroyed because they find the fossils fascinating and they will not suffer someone getting in the way of their new mystery to solve over something as petty as mundane fame and cash.


    *IE Attempting to fix boxing...

  • So you basically are considering a Beast game during the big fossil rush.

    Well in the most direct fashion you'd have the PCs actually taking part in and/or performing the theft, slander, destruction, etc that was common during the fights over these fossils.(By the same token they could also run counter operations on those things. After all Nemesis are all for stopping thieves, and proving a person lied or did something wrong could just wreck their reputation in a way a Ravager would love and so on and so forth.) Of course depending on what other supernaturals you want to include this...

    Lore is what you've studied/heard/learned in regards to a field in purely knowledge based terms.Craft is your ability to build things in a certain field. Occult is more of a number of things though the range I've seen tends to have more people putting as the practical portion of interacting with things supernatural....

    Well the rule is you don't get supernatural abilities as part of the immunity. That's why I said the minotaur wouldn't instinctively know the way out of a random maze. The example listed in the book was the idea of escaping through an air vent that was too small for the Beast by saying they can become mouse sized to fit through owing to their Lair possessing the Cramped Trait. It doesn't it, say they need to perfectly fit the Lair Trait, excluding things like your Lair Trait being a lesser version a la the difference between a Lair that is a burning building and the a Lair where the fires are...

    No problem.

    Oh another thing that people will occasionally forget, while a Beast is protected from their Lair Traits regardless of whether they caused it or if it just happens they don't get any special perks from dealing with those Tilts unless they've imposed their Lair Trait.(Beast core pg 101) For example a Beast with the Maze trait never suffers disorientation or confusion due to a maze-like environment. However, if I chloroform a minotaur and drop him in the middle of a mirror maze he does not instinctively know how to exit the maze, merely that he would know if he'd crossed...

    Actually I can break this down for you, since its a useful power.
    Base form: You step into a sufficiently sized shadow and merge with it. At this stage you are incapable of actually moving around the shadow without returning to a physical state. Perception and communication are still applicable in the shadow, however it centers on the location you merged with the shadows in. In the event that said area is illuminated with bright light or some form of magical attack harms you the ability ends.

    Low Satiety: In addition to the above you are able to expand your perceptive abilities...

    I don't really know the specifics on the other character types ,excluding the Unchained, so I apologize I can't speak on what they can do.

    Well some of it strikes me as a counter scenario, ie if its known that one of your enemies can just pop in anywhere there's a shadow then you start cracking out the extra generators, glowsticks, battery lanterns, etc. Since Shadowed Soul requires the shadows be connected for a singular access then anything that will break them up means it doesn't work. Also the rule is that they can see and while they can shift perspective they can only focus on...

    Would the Mistborn books work? I'll admit I am somewhat more iffy on whether or not those are appropriate for an 11 year old than Exalted material.

    There is a god somewhere in Yu-shan who's job it is to store and maintain strong and ancient brands and bottles of alcoholic beverages. These bottles are put on store by Sidereals as they get older with instructions for how long into their next incarnation's time working the duty they are to be given said bottle because the Sid believes about then said future incarnation will need that stiff a drink.

    Personally think there's a section towards the end of the "Thousand Correct Actions" for strategies that are viable, save that they tend to require oddly specific circumstances ie "Making use of a rampaging tyrant lizard on your battlefield." and the proper routines for when you start getting military units composed of hungry ghosts swarming the battlefield at night.

  • Might also clear up some things as well, like if he wants his character as just a retired pro-football player then a question comes to mind of why he retired. Was he injured, was it a conflict with a his divine parentage, hell was he just worried about the prospect that as he got older the odds of him suffering a major injury started to get too much for him to be willing to risk it for another season?

    As others have noted what kind of business is he in is something to mention, or to my knowledge how he's running them.

    Hmm honestly an angle that comes to mind would be...

    On things that might also no longer exist, I believe there was a thaumaturgy or sorceress totem that invalidated the whole certain storm mothers have a tendency to attack ships with women on them thing that cheesed off Lioness a bit. Since thaumaturgy no longer works on that scale and a sorceress working would be more of a unique thing to offer protection to individual ships or along certain routes that particular spell is probably not a thing anymore.
