  • High Speech is a function of Peripheral Mage Sight, so without being under an effect that grants Mage Sight, I don't think Sleepers can learn it.


    Only Mages are valid targets for the Familiar Spell, but why that is the case is never elaborated on....

    Scale +1 affects both number of targets and maximum size of each target (to Size 10, with Advanced Scale). Scale is a single factor, you don't need to take multiple penalties for moving different 'parts' of it down the chart.

    Not trying to derail the thread at all - but I've seen more than a few instances of people underestimating what the Arcana dots in a Pangaean's write-up actually mean, in practice. The fact that these monstrosities have so much power at their disposal as a side-note is terrifying, but the fact that it is a sidenote seems to leave people underestimating what...

    That was a bit of hyperbole to illustrate a point, yes, but the point itself still stands.
    Advanced scale defaults to 5 subjects before any penalties are taken, and base Potency for the effect would be 4.
    A single success is all you need on any spell - 8 dice is plenty.

    It wasn't my intention to offend, and I'm sorry if I did - I was just curious what the actual nature of the problem was on the off-chance that there were people/resources in the community that could help.

    I do corporate IT, and the various potential problems I skimmed past in my initial post are all root causes I've seen when people came to me with reports that their 'thing' broke....

    So, the writer shed some extra light on the intent of this in Discord, which made this click for me in a way that zeroing in on a blanket ban on specific practices did not. Paraphrasing - attempts to affect the Time, Fate, or Memory of a mummy will always fail; this totally makes sense to me and is super thematic. In light of that, the only real issue I have with the sidebar is the way it addresses the practices, since it creates edge cases that don't follow the intent.

    For example:
    1) As written, an Acanthus can go back in time with Shifting Sands by a scene or so and 'kill'...

    I suppose I'd been hoping for something more interesting than a no-sell - like the magic having entirely unpredictable consequences, or affecting the Mummy at some other achronological time, or other more interesting outcomes.

    There's a lot of room for interesting mysteries where this interaction is, and that room being cut out and replaced with "Nope, sorry, here's some Paradox" is disappointing.

    So...what's up with the sidebar that seems to exist solely to no-sell the abilities of one specific subcategory of playable characters from an entirely different gameline?

    Seconding this - I've noticed that this design goes all the way back to Fox, who also 'initiates a clash of wills' against an unclear opposing pool. What are these entities clashing against?



    I mean, it has Mind 4 and infinite reach.

    It only takes Mind 2 and finite reach to make an arbitrarily large group of people/werewolves/whatever kill themselves....

    No.

    It wouldn't be unreasonable for a custom Prime 3 spell to allow it, though. Maybe even Prime 2....

  • It's a Deviant setting.

    Actually Promethean is a better fit in a lot of ways - you're 100% right there. But there are parts that definitely feel more Deviant, especially with the latest season...

    Botched pilgrimage into Divergence is a tragedy.

  • There are two major Discord servers for CofD.

    The Unofficial Discord has the largest population and most active community: http://discord.me/cofd
    The Onyx Path Publishing Discord also has CofD channels: http://bit.ly/2TlkYd3

    Eric's link was a direct link to the Deviant channel in the main (unofficial) Discord, which won't work unless you're already a member due to the way they manage channels.

    started a topic Mudras & Grimoires

    Mudras & Grimoires

    So...I think I've been running mudras wrong for essentially forever.





    I have always allowed Grimoire users to use the skill mudra as a yantra in their spellcasting even if they didn't know the Rote in question. From this text - on page 112 of the core book, it looks like that was a mistake. Does that mean the only way to get both the yantra bonus and rote action quality is to create the rotes yourself as a Master?...

  • The thing is, vBulletin absolutely supports an arbitrarily large number of potential channels. They shouldn't need new forum software in order to create new subforums.

    Can you elaborate on the nature of the problem?

    Is this a hard technical block that you've discussed with the vendor, or is it due to not having someone technically proficient with the forum software, or hitting resource limits of some kind? Did a runaway employee take off with the admin credentials?...

  • With Signs of Sorcery and Nameless and Accursed out now, do we have any rules beyond the tiny amount in the core about how Morpheans, Spirit-transformed mages, or Ghost Liches work?

    I have both books, and don't see anything about any of these topics in them, but I want to make sure I'm not missing anything here.
