    replied to Steel and Iron: What's the difference
    What if the weakness doesn't come from Creation? Like in Warhammer 40K they once handwaved the fear of death and the image of the Grim Reaper as a side effect of an entity called the Nightbringer that once tormented pretty much all of life to the extent that fear of it was carved into everything's DNA.

    So what if there was some iron monster, something like an Ishvara class Hanya that just sowed such horrors and devastation amongst the fey of it's time that the old horror still reverberates through the fey of the current time. Just a somewhat amusing story idea that came to mind...

    Sunder iron was one of the major weapon metals for ages because it could be easily remade and repaired as well as a decently strong material....

    To your first question, there is a pre-order button on the kickstarter page that links to the backerkit with various other purchase features if you're interested in that. Though should you wish to wait it will eventually be available on Drivethrurpg. Still worth checking out the Backerkit one to see if there are any things there that interest you.

    I think the second has been asked before, but I'm not sure....

    replied to Steel and Iron: What's the difference
    So a discussion on the subject came up a while back on a DnD forum.* A point that came up from a book of medicine by Pliny the Elder talked about various medical rituals involving bits of iron and circles and all that stuff implying that for whatever reason iron was considered a kind of antimagic. So a thing that came up in that entry spoke of people referring to magnetic iron as "live iron" and was believed to have mystical properties, even listing causing greater wounds.

    Well just spitballing, but what if that's the connection for Creation? That a cold iron weapon wasn't...

    Not guaranteed. Some very well might, others might not. Note the description on Unbreakable Loyalty says it gains a defining tie if the familiar lacks such a tie. The main trick of the power is to then make it so that other forces cannot erode said intimacy....

    Hmm the protean keyword sounds like it'll be fun.

    I actually imagine there's probably a procedure for verifying whether or not an anathema report is legit even before a response is given. I mean I would not be surprised if some lords on the bad side of a rebellion tried claiming that clearly the populace has been swayed by the foul words of an anathema or that they're using the vile powers of one to push back their own forces, with the hopes that you'll get a Wyld Hunt to show up put down the rebellion and of course give some extra legitimacy to the lord.

    I think the dev's mentioned it earlier back that most people are probably going to assume, if they don't know what they're dealing with, that its a god or at the very least they'll end up seeking the input of the local priest or equivalent.

    I mean there are gods out there that look human, or have the ability to look human, so you can't rule them out. Then of course exigents exist and as far as the Immaculate Order is concerned exigents are alright until they step out of line. Of course you also can get around doing blatantly supernatural stuff with "I'm a sorcerer" or...

  • Aside from the obvious of the ST potentially refusing to allow you to immediatly reopen the pathway once it closes, it also costs 1 willpower every time you try to force it open. So in an absurdly best case scenario where your ST is alright with just forcing the door open again the instant it starts to close, having maximum willpower, and never failing to get an exceptional success you would get 10 scenes....

  • Actually the scientist in my group is constantly dealing with the debate on whether or not he wants to use his power bow or his crossbow. The crossbow fits his specialty as a thing he made and is thus more accurate and such, but it doesn't hit as hard as the powerbow....

  • First I have to go by what you say on this, I don't know what the specialty actually is so when you said the specialties were, "people in a stance" and "big creatures" considering your complaining I had to kind of assume that those were the actual wording on the specialties. As opposed to what you've just clarified them to, which make a lot of sense for their characters. If your character is dedicated towards a specific task why wouldn't you be able to apply the specialty they got for that task to the task they've trained for.

    As for vetoing the stuff that was...

    replied to Initiative in 2nd E question
    Join battle rolls in 2nd edition are wits + awareness. winner goes on tick 0 everyone else is down based on the difference in success totals.
    In the future though something like this can be asked i the ask a question thread. Keeps things from getting cluttered.

  • Well cases where I think the specialty is too broad then I just exercise ST veto rights. Like "big creatures" is too broad in my opinion because it potentially covers everything from the horse size up. I mean one thing if the player said "gargantuan creatures" that refers to a specific merit and makes sense for the character. In a stance feels a bit broad since it sounds like it can be easily spread from just enabling the player an advantage against martial artists, which seems to be their goal, to applying to anyone who's actually learned how to fight. "Oh they're fighting...
