  • "Did you know about the anathema that replaced your relative?"
    "No."
    "Nothing suspicious about their behavior."
    "Well at first when they started being competent, and an asset to the House, and not a completely rancid pile of demon excrement, but they kept going and we never saw the ulterior motive come up. I'm sorry actually actually doing your duty as part of a Great House was never taught to me as sign of demonic replacement."

  • I think the trickiest part would be setting the scenario, so the Lunar being taken on as an asset would be considered viable. As SLS noted most of the time if a Lunar approached a Sid with offer of an alliance the Sid will likely treat the Lunar as a potential threat/enemy and deal accordingly even if they think the Lunar is being sincere in their request. Whereas a Lunar and a Sid meeting during a raid by a large group of Rhaksha and agreeing to not try to kill the other for the duration of the raid is more likely to be accepted. Both by the participants and their comrades/ higher ups even if...

  • I imagine it would be like the Mission Impossible briefing. You know "If you or any member of your team are captured the secretary will disavow any knowledge of you." So while they would be willing to provide support, probably a scaling thing as the Chronicle progresses, it would be with an understanding that the Lunar can not count on them backing them up if it all hits the fan. (Not that it would never happen, just don't count on it.)

    Sounds fun, tricky, but fun.

    You're probably in more risk of reprecussions from Terrestrial deities if you start cursing them or doing things that might insult them than a Celestial deity. Like dude telling his wife, " I can't imagine Venus looking lovelier than you right now," probably safe owing that Venus isn't likely paying close attention and its a compliment and all that. Dude starts handing out pamphlets saying his wife is more attractive than Venus and holding a party in a place dedicated to Venus and talking about how much prettier his wife is than Venus, is screwed.

    Of course the domain probably...

    Part of the trick is also exposure I'd think. You have more opportunities to do things to make the character unsettling if the character is showing up more often. To use a scene from one of the novels as a reference point, the Shoat in the novel killed at least one mortal with the indication being that they liked the person's eyes and decided to keep them. In my opinion the book kind of wasted it because it didn't come up much, you had mention of the corpse being found, but it was never tied back to the Shoat since there was a different Abyssal in play explicitly killing people for annoying him...

    If it helps on that one my mental approach is more that the solar is so thoroughly internalized how swords (or whatever weapon they choose to manifest it as if they had a different prefence.) that they learned to force their own essence to trace along and fill the weapon outline.




    So first the easier part of the explanation; the mark. Think of it more like a distinctive style of mark that appears, if a person passes the check then they recognize the mark in two things, first that it is occult in origin not a stylized tattoo. The second part is recognizing the style...

    I think of Master Plan Meditation as more doing these things retroactively. So your assassin handles the job and quickly goes off making it look like a bad mugging, you roll whatever your ST deems appropriate, the investigator comes in and rolls really well and it comes out that an item that can be traced back to you fell off during your setting up of the crime scene. However, you cased out the alley earlier and spent a while planning the fight, hence you have the points to spend and you reveal that you actually had thought this might happen, so you had replaced several of your loose items, including...
