    replied to This thread is amazing
    Well if nothing else this gives me hope that Lunars aren't going to end up strangled under concerns requiring them to need to be inferior to Solars mechanically.

    replied to Sorcerous Workings: Where We Make Judgments
    Sorry if this isn't the right thread for this, but it seems about right.

    So let's say you wanted to create a working to replicate something like the dart trap from Indiana Jones. With the working being that the dart trap is self repairing and reloading. So someone breaks the pressure plate a day or two later the springs and such will reset, darts fired will be broken down after a fashion and used to create new darts for the next time the trap is sprung. With the limitation that there aren't a limitless supply of darts, and refilling the system takes at least 24 hours assuming all...

    Yeah got lore and linguistics a bit mixed up on which actually covers writing. Though now I am picturing a solar who learns the art of Wyld Shaping solely to use it for the creation of dirty novels....

    Depends on the edition. 2nd the exaltations were autonomous with the idea that Sol is able to choose an individual if he were so inclined, but otherwise the exaltations will pick their own host without his input. 3rd edition Sol does all the picking, but he doesn't have the option to not make more chosen and if he doesn't do it consciously he'll likely end up doing it subconsciously.
    As for picking evil people, he doesn't necessarily go for evil people, but its not like he won't occasionally pick individuals who aren't paragons of morality, for whatever reason he's doing it that time,...

    replied to How to weaken a defining Intimacy?
    Reading through some of the rules earlier* and the whole use CBS then give the ultimatum of me or defining intimacy would be unacceptable influence as presented. Its a demand to completely abandon a defining intimacy. CBS can be used as leverage for weakening said defining intimacy, you just wouldn't be able to get a DB to go from being defined by loyalty to their family to decide to completely drop it for 3 minutes of really good sex.

    *Was looking for examples and rules for traps if anyone knows where those are....

  • Hence you see what we've been dealing with. This is not a debate so much as someone wanting to say something is broken and nonfunctional and refusing to countenance arguments, and in some cases, proof that its just things not matching with their opinion....

  • I'd argue not really that misreprestative as he's argued those points at various intervals. He's argued workings are too hard to accomplish, that no charms means you just end up with piles of useless xp because a sorcerer has nothing to spend it on, that the occult tree does nothing to make one a better sorcerer, that there are no skills or attributes to pick to make one a better sorcerer. The only point he's gotten that I could agree with was that deciding to be a sorcerer doesn't inherently make it the focus of my character, which I see as more of a feature than a bug....

  • From what I've gathered Hamster's complaint is that solar sorcerers are supposed to be the best, and this is depicted by getting access to powers everyone else needs workings to accomplish and to extend their reach to attempt as opposed to having the occult tree dedicated entirely to just allowing solars to spam spells and be dnd munchkin wizards....

    replied to Post limit break
    Fair, I didn't do too thorough a read through on the limit break when I was checking since it wasn't high priority for the response.

    Now as for going forward, well she thinks she's a screw up who shouldn't have this power. Seems like an excellent drive to seek power, connections, a mentor, virtually anything to enable her to rectify the mistake and be able to avoid what she believes is the inevitable response....

    replied to Post limit break
    I've always viewed the idea that limit feels good being either an expression of catharsis or just a release of stress and complication. Now I believe they got rid of that particular phrasing in 3rd, but in 2nd I think the actual description on the willpower refresh required you to fully ride out the limit break, so that specifically wouldn't fit the feel better scenario if I'm remembering it right.

    Now how your character would spin this into a positive experience, well she knows what she needs to do now. Every time she tried to save one of her friends she was late, if they'd been...

    replied to RWBY Volume 5
    The way I've heard it is that since Nora and Ren haven't done a lot to elevate themselves beyond secondary characters, and Jean being based of Joan of Arc, they will invariably end up dying off every once in a while for dramatic purposes. Not a particularly good argument for my mind, but eh some people speculate....

    Honestly, I think Raven being the way she is portrayed and still being the Spring Maiden would have felt a bit better if there was an indicator that she hadn't slaughtered its predecessor for it.* You know give some indicator that she has it against her will.

    *I admit I don't remember was her plan also to actually take the relic, or was it just kill Cinder when her back is turned and bail out not grabbing the relic because that's an even bigger target?...

    I enjoy the show, I still buy the soundtracks for each season cause I enjoy those. The last season just had some annoying problems.

    That and everyone took the whole giving Qrow and Raven the ability to turn into birds like Oz had crossed some insane line or taboo. Which never made sense to me, I mean maybe if he'd canonically said he chose those birds because of their names then you could list it as a pun thing.

    I think in 2nd everything worked everywhere there were just potential problems, like using necromancy in Malfeas apparently brought the proverbial hammer of god down on your head or something.

    replied to How to weaken a defining Intimacy?
    Are you talking about yours or someone else's?

    If you're attempting to degrade a defining intimacy of someone's then you need either a major or defining intimacy that supports the degrade attempt. This does not mean they need to disagree with or contradict the defining intimacy. If you're trying to remove a person's loyalty to their house you don't have to operate from them having a desire brutally murder all of them, you just need something important to the person that you can use make them care less about house loyalty.

    Also defining intimacies don't prevent the creation...
