  • Eh, it depends on the level you're using the atavism at. Technically nothing in actual wording of the ability says that's possible, so this is very much an ST call. From my own I might allow it at the Satiety expenditure level, due to the thematic mention of the Beast dripping poison and such. That said I'm iffy on the tactic as a whole because the ability is inherantly a touch attack, and so there isn't really a point to it in my mind. I mean the point of applying poison to a weapon would be to get the poison into a person's system when other methods don't work, but since all you need is physical...

  • Are you talk about soldiers who defected from to Thorns or from Thorns, also defected to Mask of Winters or from his side once the Mask was in charge?

    The best case scenario for creating individuals to be serfs would be a scenario where the kid is being given to existing serfs. Its a bit of a different story between creating a bunch of infants to have them raised with the logic that doing the whole serf thing is natural and normal for them vs "Hi, welcome to my territory figured I'd lay out some rules and services I offer my serfs. Like if you happy couple you eventually decide you want kids, but you don't want to go through the risks and complications of child bearing, or it just isn't working for you; let me know I'll get some things...

    replied to What if... there were no Excellencies?
    So we're just talking about getting rid of Solar excellencies? Nothing on the DB excellencies that do stuff aside from dice adders or the AotR Sid excellency that functions by lower TN?

  • Well how big an external threat is somewhat important. Maha launching an invasion would certainly get a response and his forces can cause a lot of damage, but under the normal situation he wouldn't merit putting everything aside. Just a sort of teeth-clenched teamwork scenario where a number of houses offer assistance and are cautiously accepted or refused based on the capabilities in the area of the invasion.

    Whereas something like the Balorean Crusade represents an existential threat to most of Creation, Realm included, consequently while the Realm might at first not put everything...

    replied to Netflix ‘Blood of Zeus’ as Scion chronicle
    I haven't finished, but I'd say my issue is that the series seems to be going with this "Its the end of the time of the Gods," but it isn't stating it and I'm only getting that because Zeus talks to Ares early on how humanity is meant to inherit the world. And I just spent a bit going, "Why are you all like this?"

    Like Hera implies that Zeus took her portfolio as ruler of the sky when they got married, but nothing seems to be coming of that and just I'm not getting why we're at the point it seems like Zeus and Hera are willing to end eachother and gods only...

  • Like what kind of thing are you defining as "serious threat?" Like are we talking this exalt is capable of causing mass destruction, chaos, and what have you by themselves? Are we talking leading an army, are we talking economic conquest, what?

    Because I'll be honest the point where my Solar chef became a threat to the Realm was very different than the point where my friend's Night became a threat.

    Yeah it pretty much depends on their stance on anathema in general, the prospective bed partner in particular, and probably what they try to tell them. "That was awesome, you were great, we should do this more again some time." is probably gonna be a harder thing for most to decide they must struggle to refute than, "You know if you kill your boss and take their position it'll be fine, you're way better suited to it."

    Not counting that some might be reticent to knowingly sleeping with anathema more on the potential issues if it gets out to certain parties, or just...

    Sell them how?

    Generally speaking if this house of Outcasts were attempting the Patrician thing then attempting to create ties with one of the Great Houses is a pretty expected move. The kids, both exalted and unexalted, would be pushed towards achieving as much as possible and doing as well as possible in order to make themselves more appealing for things like marriage prospects or just elevation and hiring by a Great House that could lead to benefits for the patrician house they came from.

    As for spending willpower to resist social influence, that probably depends on...

    replied to 'Once and Future' Speculations
    I kind of hope it covers stuff like picking up the mantles of old heroes, that or just the various legends of heroes who have "will return in the time of greatest need" as part of their legend. Kind of curious on the latter since I'm only familiar with two or three and I would enjoy seeing more.

    replied to Villains - Gods and Alt-Right
    I feel like the first and most important detail is making sure the players are fine with this. You know seeing how in some areas these might not have the same disconnect from the player group that fighting the Nazis in WW2 would and you know rule one and all that.

    As for the actual groups I would honestly check and see how they fit any sort of veneration for a pantheon into things. If they actually follow principles, rules, and traditions of the religion then maybe the Pantheon might be willing to work with them, especially if in setting they're more like actual followers than just...
