    replied to Tomb of Dreams
    Yeah the Tomb went fine for me and my group. I mean my biggest problem in it came from a personal confusion on how you fight battlegroups when the BG's enemy isn't also one, and a bit of finageling when the PCs decided they wanted to keep their mouths shut about themselves when talking to the snake though any other topic they knew about was fair game as far as they seemed to go.

    Though I think Salem did make one heck of a leap from the observed bit that they aren't all knowing to the assumption that it means they aren't omnipotent or close enough that its academic from a mortal perspective.

    Though my current hypothesis is Salem is looking to go for apotheosis by swiping the power of the gods. Makes the most sense if we're operating under the idea that she wants the relics to summon those things as opposed to wanting the relics in places where no one else will ever get them lest the world somehow get a passing grade on judgement day and the gods decide to...

    To be fair that was the dark brother and he didn't seem to give too much of a crap about it considering his reason for bringing Ozma back boiled down to, "Finally someone comes to me to ask a favor instead of my brother. I've never had worshippers before, what would you like so I may prove that I am way better than my brother. Which, you clearly know since you came here first, but we're proving this to everyone else too."...

    It depends on the circumstances, but yeah if an entity is so alien that you can't ascribe human morality to it then short of being made like said entity one wouldn't be able to learn its view of morality. Some series get away with the scenario by playing it more towards alien circumstances to things humans can understand. For example "Speaker for the Dead" had a race where part of their growing up involved being ritualistically gutted. This led to a few conflicts owing that one was a result of doing this to a human without knowing that humans work that way and another was a human refusing...

    So do we know anything about this Nechara place aside from what's mentioned in the corebook? Like was it in previous editions?

    I'd say no. Since the beat comes from voluntarily turning a failure into a dramatic failure, as the someone who's been a victim of Thief of Fate doesn't get the option to have their failures not be dramatic failures that day they gain no beats from it.

    There's also one that views the pairing as called Fire and Ice cream. Though I'll need to see more interaction between Neo and Cinder before I start putting stock in that pairing, since I personally prefer Chaos Emerald (Cinder/Emerald) for the time being. *


    *Though I am totally willing to support an Emerald/Neo ship solely based on it apparently being called Mint Chocolate chip....

    There seems to be a small calling for something like melted icecream on that pairing as well.

    I forget, have we established what the heck the Silver Eyes even do? I know they can screw up Grimm, and Grimm hybrids like Cinder, but has it ever been established if they work on other things?...

    replied to Strange family ties
    Someone once made the case* that Beasts are able to form kinships because they are the monsters from the collective unconscious and that most of the other splats are tied firmly into those. IE Changeling are kin because the fear of True Fey stealing yourself or your loved ones away and leaving a puppet in its place wormed its way into people's head to the extent that its now a symbolic idea of a person being spirited away and returning so changed that they can't even fit into their old lives anymore. Whereas the Unchained don't fit the slot in the mind that demons occupy, and what they are is...

    New episode things
    So we have an excellent show on how one can narrate fights using Rainwalker and weapons like it now. Also am I alone in thinking Neo looks adorable with Torchwig's hat? I also am looking forward to next week, because I am so swiping whatever happened to the farm for my campaign.(Might have to modify it, but hey that's just fun.)

    replied to Using Sorcery to improve Gods
    Well an obvious method is using sorcery to bolster what you can do and gain more worship. Like people don't normally pray to a harvest god for rain even though its kind of important for a good harvest, but if you know that one spell that makes the weird bug arm things in the sky change the weather suddenly that's a thing they'll petition for which in turn will help your station.

    Hate, nah. I think the prevailing opinion is they're d-bags.


    You don't really get around an argument on whether or not mass slaughter of sentient life is moral or not just because its easy to make, destroy, and replace. Just means you get to be completely serious if you tell someone, "I brought you into this world and I can take you out. It won't make no difference [sic] either cause I'll make another that looks just like you."

    Actually I've met a fair amount of people that would or did when. Plus your comparison isn't really working since the veracity...

  • Nope. Incarnate is hardly an easy state to reach, so a lot of Beasts will leverage whatever advantage they've got in getting them there. Not unreasonable that many a Talassi who seeks Incarnation would play up the aura that the Family Anathema gives them. Plus you'd also be dealing with Talassi who don't think it would work for one reason or another, remember the hypothesis isn't even that an Incarnate Talassi would be able to free itself just that if a sufficient number of Talassi "flipped the script" then the Anathema would break. There's no evidence to suggest it would work, just...

    My assumption is he'll modify his name based on the current host, since as he's noted they eventually become a singular conciousness anyway.


    From the timeline of different hosts I figured he just modified it as time went on and used parts of it for other things, plus wear and tear. I mean we did see the gem getting smaller throughout the timeline.


    It depends on if there was anything special about the area. We know the dark brother set up the original pool that created the Grimm, and presumably that was the thing in his temple he crawled out of*, we don't...

    New ep thing
    Huh, yeah you know it hadn't occurred to me that part of the reason Ozpin hadn't mentioned the story is because people would invariably want to know the plan for dealing with an entity that ,so far as anyone knows, has perfect immortality and access to literal magic. Which does not go over well when you don't have a plan to tell them. So maybe part of the cryptic thing might have been a bit of a defense on Ozpin's part that he just got really in over his head on.

    They didn't mention recreating it, but the light brother did mention that humanity was going to start coming back eventually regardless. This could be an indicator that not all of humanity had been wiped out. Which could be from a number of reasons ranging from the destruction being targeted to those with magic and not hitting the few without, the light sibling purposely sparing some, or setting things in motion to have them come back, or just that humanity was the only thing that got wiped out and the light brother figured humanity 2.0 would eventually evolve from one of the remaining species.
