    replied to Imperfect Circles
    The circle is sort of an artificial construct of the exalts themselves. It's helpful to have all of them, but not like there's a metaphysical thing drawing exalts into groups with the other castes of their exaltation.

    The old story hook of things like the tomb of five corners having a room for the eclipse of the old caste, or whatever, are basically that group preparing something for their circle mate and the memories and such just bringing them back to the old tomb. So leftover memories and impressions potentially leaving an impression for the inheritors of the exaltations but they...

  • Partially this is an ST thing. (It does expressly say ultimately comes down to the ST's call.) The way I see it a volunteer would still need to be a free target. Like if I recall there was a clan in vampire ,Salurbi I think, who couldn't feed off unwilling targets. All their food had to be coerced, bargained, etc from the target. So one of them making the exchange of "I'll fix your relative and I get to take some of your blood." would be fair game.

    I think the idea is that family dinner would be the metaphysical equivalent of the hyena or jackals waiting for the lion to...

  • The hunt needing to be genuine means it can't be a staged event. Like a vampire feeding on a person who's volunteered to be fed on wouldn't count as a hunt just because they agreed to run since the vamp wanted a chase.

    As for feeding without a hunt, I'd say it would be an impersonal thing. Just random action that leads to the necessary actions of a feeding. A vampire grabbing a random person walking by and sinking their fangs in to the person's neck, a changeling making a glib/offhand comment that just happens to set the mood properly for a feeding, etc.

    Thinking of porting putting the down and dirty combat rule in my campaign.* Figured it would apply to instances of trivial opponents in areas where they might be obstacles. Any issues that might come up from it that you all can think of?


    *The rule for those not familiar (Pg 87 of the Chronicles of Darkness corebook for those who want it explained more thoroughly.)
    Usually used if the combat isn't the most important thing, or the players severally outclass the enemy or something like that. Player makes a roll of their combat pool (str+brawl, dex+thrown, etc). This is

    Just saw the episode and I will weigh in on that whole "take what is mine" line. When Cinder first stole her portion of the fall maiden's powers Cinder tells someone ,presumably Salem, something to the effect of"I feel hungry. but I like it." Now presumably this was a side effect of splitting the power, but she still had to deal with that for a while. Not to mention after within hours ,at best, of getting the full power of the Fall Maiden, Ruby ended up taking Cinder out. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if that left ended up creating a hunger for power, and one Salem ended...

    There was a line back when we saw Cinder first attack the old fall maiden about "claiming what is ours." I mean granted depending on the circumstances it could just as easily be a belief in entitlement as opposed to fact, but it has made me wonder if the Maidens aren't a case of Ozpin's first form dividing up his own abilities....

    Well there's have someone with an interest in that god not being dead asking the players to handle it. There was a story hook in 1st where you had a bunch of sirens kidnap a god's lover to force an audit on the Storm Mother the sirens worked for, since the Storm Mother had enough political clout to make it a case of mutually assured destruction if it went there the god is reluctant to allow it to go to audit.* In your case the god would be friends, have use of, or owe favors to the rampaging god, etc and would prefer something to open up or something to get them moved elsewhere.

    replied to Lunar dragon-blooded breeding?
    It depends on the chronicle and the events at hand. I mean if you're in the middle of stuff then yeah not likely to happen, but you're situated, there's nothing imperative, and the rest of the group is fine with it, then yeah 20 years later, "Alright guys I made a new diaklave and it isn't actively trying to kill me. What have you been up to?"

    replied to Your Headcanon
    Considering DBs are only resonant with Jade artifacts I would imagine the official line when teaching craftsmen is that orichalcum and moon silver* are poor conductors of essence. Thus they should not be the dominant metal in weapons or armor meant for Dragonblood use though they are still useful for other functions or features in the design of said equipment.

    *Soul steel comes from the Underworld and is under the standard categorization of a thing that should never have been....

    So my players finished Tomb of Dreams and the 3 of them have 5 artifact weapons between them. These are not the easiest things to conceal (seeing how the Direlance, and Diaklaves are as big if not bigger than their new owners) assuming no demonstration of ability is given what are the odds on people assuming the three of them are exalts or in some way dangerous with the weapons being a visible sign of it?

    To be fair I don't think evocations would be that hard to port into 2nd. I mean conceptually at least.

    Oh and my own question, what would be an appropriate sized boarding party for a pirate crew? (Assume small to medium size ship/crew.)

    replied to Discussion: Fetich Death
    Well not to mention it was kind of an interesting thing to compare. As I understand it you had Adjoran and Saacheveral as examples of how unpredictable a fetich death could be on the reformed being, while Malfeas was something grander that decayed due to having been forced to surrender.*

    *Then later we had the addition that Proto-Malfeas had suffered fetich death despite it already being written in that edition that Malfeas hadn't and Ligier had always been the fetich.

    replied to Rethinking Marriage in the Realm
    Well it's not strictly that any kid by the woman is of her house and that's that its more of a default statement for figuring out how to handle bastard offspring while also potentially limiting a house's growth. Afterall women need to go through each pregnancy and can't really start on another during the current one, a male can impregnate another woman the same day its confirmed the first pregnancy is a thing. Think of it as a means to prevent a house from trying to drastically increase their number by having their men go off and cause a lot of pregnancies banking on a surge of new dragonbloods...

  • Well its more a difference in what the two charms are meant for. Craftsman Needs No Tools ,CNNT, seems to work mostly for mundane tasks and tools, whereas, Words as Workshop Method, WAWM, creates artifact tools to accomplish whatever insanity you need. So CNNT might be used to bypass not having a hammer or nails to stick parts of the building together, but WAWM would used to make a mold to pour the molten moon silver for the latice work....
