    I'd say Alien Allure doesn't stack with them. I mean fame and advanced fame are both listed as stacking, so no problem there. Alien Allure says it makes people treat you like you had a fame rating of whatever. It doesn't actually give it to you. So basically if alien allure exceeded your fame then I'd go with that, if it didn't then you'd be stuck with your fame merits. So flaring Alien Allure would not suddenly burst you to fame 11, nor would it make so people act like it.

  • Well considering Miracles does mention that pretty much every charm in it is a case of your ST before you buy it I'd imagine the first task would be making sure you're ST is cool with you having the power first. Then finding out would be a case of either an occult character determining it is the work of a god, or just finding out from the local populace. (Assuming one doesn't witness it directly, as it is much easier to determine a god's actions if you see the thing go on a villanous rant before the locust swarm descends.)

    I mean the way the charm is titled makes me think of the idea...

  • And your point is? I'm just saying I'm not seeing how an ST deciding to say everything that happens is the effect of the god means anything. The ST could just as easily say all dried rivers are the result of dams being built, and random dead birds are the result of the local hunting club being sloppy about clean up.

  • Yeah, but gods still have power over their domains. Like you said sometimes a volcano will just erupt or you'll a well will go dry, but sometimes those aren't natural. To put it another way, just because storms happen doesn't mean that a storm mother can't be responsible for a storm.

    It's kind of where it gets tricky, in that sometimes the power won't work because it has nothing to do with a god outside of being on it's turf. Other times it will be the god's own action, either as punishment, reward, or hell just basic maintanence of their portfolio....

    Quick question, what went wrong with roll20?

  • Honestly from how it reads it sounds like an override on a god's power over it's domain. Like the 2nd core book had a comic at the start where a town was having problems due to the local river diety flooding them. This seems like a charm that would enable a solar to reverse the flooding, and consequently draw out said god to see who the heck undid their work....

  • I will point out that the entry in the book says that Beasts don't suffer breaking points in the same way humans do. So one could argue that it is possible for one of the Beghotten to suffer a breaking point just with it being more difficult than a human due to things like, literally being a nightmare monster, closing their eyes and visiting the same nightmarish landscape, being kin with the monsters of old, and that a Beast's mind is apparently set so they can go from zero to room full of flayed corpses at the drop of a hat. (Possibly with intense glee if you're playing a ravager.)

    The others gave the general idea. As far as my "lesser effect" comment goes, it's mostly how I view things as neither effect is strictly more extreme than the other. In my view it's just easier for an ST to wiggle out of "has a desire to speak with her at least once." Without giving a social oriented character a chance to respond or manipulate the situation if the ST doesn't want them to.*

    *Not like rose rule invocation, more just the social equivillant of "Oh crap the recurring villain is about to be murdered by the party way before I was prepared for it...

    Basically it allows you to open up a conversation. It's not the most awe inspiring effect, but yeah the lesser effect means you'll at least get the opportunity for a conversation with a person you want even if they aren't trying to seduce you. If they're trying to seduce you well you can leverage that to get more things that you want....

    The problem there prototype is that black claw is explicitly incompatible with weapons, save the one charm that lets you so long as you took it from "your attacker", and armor. So either you're wearing armor in which case you can't use Black Claw, or GSP gives you armor in which you can't use it....

    replied to Is Vitriol an Element?
    The way I've got the physics thing banked for my stuff, my group has a few people that went into the munchkin chemist/physicist thing from mage, is to just explain that Creation is a world that was designed by committee and unfortunately a group of mad gods made up the committee. Consequently some things work as normal; some things don't work like they should; some things look like they work the way they should, but don't work normally; and some things don't work at all like they should in the real world.

    Simplest point that I bring up is that Creation doesn't orbit the sun, and...

    replied to Lunar Knacks
    I admit I didn't play a lot of lunars, and saw exceptionally few chimera, but I thought that was how it worked. I mean it made the most sense you have access to a ton of forms and the ability to freely shift between them it seemed like the logical inference that a chimera doing something like spawning wings meant it had a bird form in it's bank not that it just grew wings....

    replied to Defending against exalted assassins
    Well security is always a good method. I mean look a lot of rulers are going to want as few ways into a place like they're room as possible because of how likely they'll be doing something in there that makes them defenseless. Consequently this also leaves fewer methods of escape for the assassin. I mean let's say the local lord refused to have windows in their room because a relative, or their predecessor, was taken out by a crossbow bolt during a meal shot through a window. That removes the "easy" in and out of scaling to the window killing the target and bolting out the window....

    As they were I don't think keeping knacks would be a good idea. Though thinking off what Kunoichi said the idea of Lunars getting the knacks and being able to use them for say chimeric tricks might be interesting....

  • A lot of things are probably not going to get actual stat blocks so much as just the QC thing saying "melee attacks with a pool of 13." Though I wouldn't be too surprised if we ended up with creatures that had more than 10 in a combined stat block.

    I mean the Redwood Mantis in 1st had a straight up strength stat of 19 and I'm pretty sure 1st had that thing where stats weren't supposed to exceed 10 in a single block.

    replied to Is Vitriol an Element?
    This was only second edition, so who knows in 1st. The explanation is that Proto-Malfeas had wanted to add Vitrol to the elemental aspects of Creation, but then for one reason or another it just didn't happen. So Creation proper doesn't view Vitrol as an element, but it is in Malfeas. So these Vitrol elementals in Malfeas can be viewed as actual elementals there, but are just demons in Creation as they are of Malfeas.

    The Vitriol dragon is a 2nd circle demon, so she's not an elemental she's a subordinant soul to a third circle who is a fragment soul of The Sea that Marched Against...
