  • My Burning Name sorcerer:
    Defining Intimacy: Sorcery can solve everything
    Major Intimacy: Fire can solve most things

    I have not yet gained a point of limit from countering either of these Intimacies, and my GM has tried hard (at my challenge)....

    Rule of Cool demands we follow and see where this goes. Can't run away from an explosion unless we actually MEET Cthulhu and blow him up.

    Not to get too off-topic but my group has almost never encountered a Disengage. Without an Archer, everyone benefits from being at close range, and having a sorcerer with Flight of the Brilliant Raptor means enemies at range can die at range. So it just never comes up.

    In regards to Vanishing Cloud-rider Ways, Disengage isn't a movement action, it's a Combat action. So flurrying it would allow you do move away and attack in the same action, which you cannot otherwise do.

    I'd like to take the analogy one step further. I was in Water Aura. I use a Fire charm to defend myself which breaks my Aura.

    I continue to only use Fire charms on my turn. Do I enter Fire Aura on my next turn? Can I shift from Aura to Aura each turn so long as I'm only using charms of the same element (barring balanced or multi-element charms) each turn to focus a specific Aura state?...

  • When my party and I brought 30-odd people liberated from the Lintha to a shore town in 3 Tidemares, I introduced a fact that it's good luck in the West to see Tidemares at sunset, so no one gave the approaching elementals any mind. That was fun.

    Lack of a Limit track, more space for Specialties are the only things that jump out to me after that list.

    My attempt at gender-neutral language has misrepresented me. I don't know Mr Gone's gender, but I was referring to the work Mr Gone does, not stating that the base 3E sheets would cover DBs. I agree that we'd need new ones since there's no limit track for starters. Also a lot of specialty slots would be required for DBs.

    Side note: Mr Gone made some specially formatted character sheets for my game that include accuracy bonuses for range bands which I love.

    Back when the core came out, there were some WONDERFUL custom character sheets created by Mr Gone

    Here is a link to their thread from back then.

    I don't know if they're still around but they do great work.

    It's a forum qwerk. It happens to me all the time. Takes a day or two to work itself out in my experience. I use Nishkriya.com to see if it's worth double checking....

  • The new image that appears below the new stretch goal of QC writeups for the new DB circle.. I presume that's supposed to be Yushoto Mathar? If so, it struck me that the story wrote his robin as Red in color with the picture being blue...

    It's a stupid thing to nitpick about, but it was the first thing that caught my attention as it jarred with the opening story which gave me a mental image of them all. Probably easier to change the word in the story than to change the color in the image, but just kind of jarring to me.

    1. Do you think a scrying spell could be done at Terrestrial level?
    2. If I made a pool/mirror, would it be Terrestrial or Celestial? Terrestrial feels right since you can block it at that level, but worth asking
    3. Have you made any scrying spells that we can expect to see in the future? (DBs or later)
    Thank you as always for maintaining this wonderful thread....

    So "scrying magic" is something that has been alluded to in the core book in sorcery, notably with Travel Without Distance, and with Terrestrial Circle Ambition 2 Workings as something you can ward against. However, there aren't any actual spells or working descriptions on how to actually scry.
    1. If I wanted to view or listen to someone across Creation, could that be done as a working? If so, what rough level?
    2. If it should be a spell, do you consider it appropriate to do a working in place of a spell that one doesn't know in general?
    Thanks, just looking into how to expand the concept...

  • As someone who's watched a lot of threads come and go here's my 2 cents:
    1. I don't think posting your feelings in a post here will be ban-worthy. At all. Your post should be fine because you frame it pretty well.
    2. Intentions aside, it's entirely likely to cause discussion (as seen above). Where that discussion goes is only slightly in your control. It's entirely possible the thread can go into rough places and get shut down. But it's not because of your post itself. People are just people.
    So in my opinion, just copy/paste it and start a discussion. You're not calling out the devs as bad, you...

  • My 2 cents is that you should probably consider it in terms of the myriad of poisons that are not particularly detectable. I suspect it's easy for a GM to say you can do a perception + awareness at a ridiculous difficulty that's unlikely to succeed and this charm lets you subvert that. But if poisons were easily detectable they wouldn't be used! In general, the devs seem unwilling to define discrete mortal mechanics for mundane things, preferring GMs to come up with what makes sense for them. That's not always appealing, but it does seem to fit the direction of a lot of this stuff.

    Commentary on the KS page stated that they weren't even going to do the cloth maps until they could get them under $100 each. Making those maps is just more expensive now than it was 4 years ago. :/...

  • It wasn't until I read the Brawl charm Crushing Avalanche Grasp that I realized I've been playing Grappling wrong this whole time. We've not been removing rounds of control from incoming attacks. Grappling feels slightly less godly powerful now.

    Our GM gates Essence behind story milestones. XP is completely separate from the system. It allows narrative flow to dictate power level so as to avoid "we spend 8 sessions accomplishing 3 hours worth of in-game work so now I'm halfway to my next Essence point". It works for us.
