  • A question regarding Evocation philosophy: which works better as the capstone to an Evocation tree?

    (1) Evocation that upgrades two or three prerequisites and substitutes the wielder's Essence for the item's power mechanic, indicating greater personal mastery of its power (and also refined control, as wielder can choose to use less than full Essence rating).

    (2) Evocation that unleashes the item's might in a mostly uncontrolled wide scale display of power.

  • Thaumaturgy is a tough one, just knowing it at all out-of-clan requires some sort of justification, never mind having it as effectively another clan discipline. I'd say the former revenant suggestion above might work, or essentially being "raised" as a Tremere rather than Toreador (as represented by the Mentor background).

    Alternatively, take the Rock n' Roll-is-the-Devil's-music route and pick Dark Thaumaturgy instead?

    Ram's horns headgear like Tim the Enchanter, but you use it to headbutt people?

    I do not want to be the person responsible for performing maintenance/cleanup after a Liminal warstrider gets taken out for a spin!

    Incidentally, kudos to the devs for making warstriders something I find generally cool and certainly not objectionable in this edition. They (and the whole mass production magitech/the sun is a Transformer thing) really got on my last nerve in 2nd Edition....

    I never before considered Green Acres in the context of Exalted, but now I'm imagining Eva Gabor as a cosmopolitan Eclipse less than thrilled by her Lunar husband's lifestyle choices....

    Yeah, I think a "HE'S MINE!" "NO, MINE!" struggle would be the inevitable result of that....

  • I mean, in the DtF game there are five Archdukes of Hell that almost certainly exceed the antediluvians in power and don't exactly want to spread hugs and puppies through all creation. They haven't managed to bring about the end of the world as we know it so far, individually or collectively. I would imagine that other demons whose lore says they can are dealing in some hyperbolic PR....

    Interesting! How the hell did anyone ever find that out given the materials and circumstances involved?...

    In Exalted it's clearly a magical analog/improvement on gold though, which doesn't rust or tarnish. I suspect the connotations of unnatural green discoloration in response to lengthy exposure to Sorcery are intentional....

    Are we sure Trauma Bear isn't one of the figures Karvara is shown tossing toward its maw? I was too captivated by the Devil Tower to pay much attention to its snacks.

  • My backstory for my main character involves something like this. When he was a member of the Sabbat in NYC through the early 20th Century, having a stake in the American Radiator Building with its big basement showcase furnace and his finger in a number of organized crime pies meant he was perfectly positioned to provide after-hours body disposal. (Of course, at the time he was older than the archbishop and the vast majority of the city's vampires; a neonate trying a similar enterprise might encounter more distrust and hostile takeover attempts.)...

  • Don't forget anyone who can speak to ghosts—not a major consideration for most clans, but we're talking about the Giovanni here.

    That said, assuming a loyal indoctrinated member of the Giovanni family who was vetted and judged worthy of the embrace, mightn't lacking the clan's weakness and not showing up as it when one's blood is tested be considered useful for a spy/infiltrator?...

  • Yeah, I don't imagine that finding oneself locked away in the cathedral-tomb world body of He Who Speaks in All Caps would be a significant improvement upon the current situation....
