    Another point to consider. How devout is this character? I mean probably less applicable if they're a priest to whatever they serve, but I can see some rather amusing reactions coming from having a character who worships a demon just because they were raised a worshiper of that demon and they'll be damned if they're going to have that awkward conversation about leaving the faith with their parents.

  • Well the pact is probably going to emphasize that Solars are dangerous, that they can be useful and great but at the same that a good blade is still just as effective at stabbing you as stabbing someone else.On the other hand a solar has the capability to use the spell to specifically summon third circle demons come Calibration which really just destroy so many balances and situations. I mean come on Madelrada That Which Wears Down Mountains is apparently an extremely talented general and is able to potentially a wreck a siege situation by just staring at the enemy's walls until they dissolve...

  • That's not accurate. It says the Exalt can be taught charms that are learnable via the eclipse anima power. You still need the mentor to teach it you just don't need to pay xp to learn the charm for a while since it's being stored in the committed essence....

    It's probably happened. I mean if the person doesn't exalt Zenith then they don't get a message from Sol as a guarantee. Which means if they were already a Yozi cultist then there isn't necessarily anything to make them decide to change, hell depending on the circumstances they might take the second breath as a sign of the favor from some Yozi.

    Though more likely I'd put it down to allies. Sol will help his chosen, but he's not exactly getting down in the trenches to increase the odds of their survival. The Yozi and their fragment souls though yeah you call Sondok and request she...

    Not really that surprising Isator. The phrasing specifically inquiries if they could do something or if they're just screwed. That really denotes more of "Oh no Ferand is charging through the forest and is going to bulldoze through our town" not "So Stanewald showed up due to that earthquake we had yesterday.You know one that opened that pit in the middle of Ms. O'leery's farm. So she's kind of bored and is gonna start teaching dance lessons to anyone who's interested so they don't completely humiliate themselves at the harvest festival next month."

    And since banishing...

    There's a 2nd circle demon who's big on games. Amusingly mortals stand the best chance against him because he will only really fight in the bounds of whatever game you're playing. So a baseline human can potentially win that contest by virtue of actually being able to win the game. That said attacking it martially will just result in it summoning it's game pieces to destroy people.

    After that most 2nd circles are probably more dangerous than a bloodape and those usually require a few mortals to take one down.

    3rd circles are exceptionally problematic as these ones tend...

    Oh that skip. I thought Isator was talking about something that allowed skipping specific subjects in a thread or the like.

    Though I will point out we are getting a little off topic considering unless beastperson rape, or rape by beastpeople, is part of the more traditional aspects of the Silver Pact it's not really a major aspect....

  • Actually I got my Dnd/Pathfinder Gm honestly interested and excited about playing in this edition. Barely could pull that off in 2nd. I mean granted my group now consists of what is philosophically one of the Sons of Ether, a doctor, and an assassin, but still.

    replied to What is the scale of Primordials?
    Well general accepted idea is that before they fell the Primordials also inhabited Zen Mu, which we have no clue on the scale of. After that it comes more down to the Primordials being confusing and insane beings. I mean The Endless Desert takes 5 days to cross period. Doesn't matter if you crawl on your belly or use Stormwind Rider as soon as you're able to you will arrive in 5 days.(Unless you've unfortunately drawn Cecelyne's direct attention then all bets are off.) So them being able to be infinite in size while occupying a finite space doesn't surprise me.

    Another possibility...

    replied to Ask the Devs
    First really liking the idea of the aura charms. It seemed a little disappointing in 2nd how DBs had an anima banner that was inherantly a weapon, but nothing ever came from it aside from needing special gear to prevent killing their horse or the like. This seems like an excellent idea as a sort outgrowth of the elemental connection and trying to rein in the more dangerous and destructive aspects of the banner. I mean I'm likely reading the wrong stuff into it, but still it is a nice idea and it feels like something unique to DBs.

    I do have one question I'm a little curious on. Why...

    Usually it's almost immediate. The description in the book was that the exaltation bearing demon shows up at the point where the exalt to be would succeed or exalt and then let's it play out to their failure or whatever and if the person is still deemed a viable infernal (seems like they have the mindset to say yes, and not being dead for example) then the demon shows up to give them the offer....

    I don't think Ma-ha is a member of the pact, but the core does make it sound like he's viewed as an ally. (To an extent.) Since it mentions he occasionally trades information and magic plunder with envoys of the Silver Pact, so long as they're respectful. Plus he's been known to train a new lunar for a year or two on occasion. Aside from that it says he's been pretty content to just keep to his own domain.

    So I don't think he's a member of the Silver Pact at the moment. Granted Creation is going to pot, so Ma-ha might decide the current situation makes the Silver Pact a more necessary...

    replied to Seal of Eight Divinities
    I think one is only operable from Autochton's side. I mean obviously that one would likely be opened already in your scenario, but it would be an interesting challenge to figure out how to communicate across the seal in order to get it open.

    Well you said the Solar's opened 7 of 8, so do they reseal themselves?

    You guys ever see the film, "Perfume: Story of a Murderer"? In the film version the protagonist, Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, has a scene where he mixes a bunch of perfumes to replicate another one just because he smells the first and then with a few quick wiffs is able to identify which of the other odors in the bottles can be used to replicate it. Mind you he doesn't really know how to make perfume or even what the componetents he's using are, so his description when he's grabbing stuff is just stuff like grabbing stuff saying this one and such in extremely vague. He essentially knows...

  • Yeah I think it'll probably be more like individual charms will have paths branching off based on a Deathlord. So for example the abyssal version of solar plate is just what it always is about summoning armor. The evolution stuff like trapping someone in it, trapping someone in with spikes in it, as before only forcing the armor to fight for you are more on the grounds of you have seen really f*ed up stuff being around the Deathlords and being linked with the dead creates some rather interesting avenues for a power set that can be defined as, "what everyone else can do cranked up to 11.&...
