  • Ooh, Ritualistic Bans are indeed a lot of fun. I think there was a great section about them in the First Edition Book of Spirits.

  • You know, I have to admit I'm more than a little curious about your ideas for the Bronze Age Collapse. It's not every day you have multiple superpowers of a complex, cosmopolitan section of the world simultaneously go down in flames due to migrant groups that apparently came from nowhere and then vanished into thin air. Looking at you Sea Peoples, looking at you.

    Also, the presence of the Mater in the Eternal City itself gets me to thinking if that is relatively... standard for the much more strongly polytheistic and animistic past of the CofD. There obviously won't be one spirit...

  • Well, the Violent Skills section of Chronicles of Darkness: Hurt Locker mentions in the Occult section that anyone with the knowhow can make a basic charm that can do any number of things. The section explicitly calls out that you don't need Supernatural Merits to use the system. It mentions, as suggestions, boosting Stealth rolls against a supernatural creature, directly adding to the Damage Rating of a given weapon, and reducing the amount of Vitae a vampire could draw from the target's blood. It suggests basically allocating successes on a roll to various effects. As a general consideration,...

    replied to Mutapan Empire!
    Of course there is still the Diamond Precept: "The Awakened Are One Nation." The local, non-Diamond Awakened are not Banishers, nor are they Seers, ergo, they fall under the banner of the glorious Awakened Nation. Even then, Banishers and Seers still have the benefit of protection under the Lex Magica. I don't see the Silver Ladder as the conquering types, especially when it comes to Mages. Their goals are more unification under one banner, are they not?...

  • Of course it's an idigam. Knew it had to be an idigam, the whole "mother" aspect of it suggests the Forge Servant Dread Powers. Only question is, is it Earthbound or did it Coalesce later, since I seem to recall a notable effigy of Cybele being made from a meteor of some kind (which the idigam could have rode in on or Coalesced around).

  • Visions as in "see the future and answer these questions" visions or visions as in Elpis Visions?

  • Well that makes sorcerers really terrifying if that's the baseline for learning Sekhem Sorcery. Also makes it a retroactive moment of awesome for the Deathless since each of them learned it while they were alive. Though, of course, they had the Shan'iatu to help them out and whole organized system. So Sekhem Sorcerers can sacrifice their maximum Morality/Integrity to learn rituals? Makes sense to me, given the Lovecraft/Conan vibe of Mummy.

    Can they make Relics?

  • Basically, the Deathless more or less broke Egypt towards the end of the First Sothic Turn (it's implied that a couple hundred to a couple thousand gods tossing around earth-shaking magic with impunity in service to their own agendas more or less gutted Kemet and caused the First Intermediate Period) at which point the Guildmasters got together and collectively decided to ensure that this many Deathless were never packed into such a small geographic area ever again, and established laws governing what the Deathless could, or could not, do to each other or to mortal populations in the future. The...

  • Well that makes sense. What are the Bestowments of the Amirani? Are they any different than the Bestowments of the Frankensteins?

  • I'm intrigued by wanting to know what kind of rites Sekhem Sorcerers can learn, beyond Amkhat Building and Deathless Summoning, but I must admit I'm more intrigued by what Arcana are used to manipulate Sekhem and Pillars (especially since I'd like to see which Subtle Arcana relate to which Pillar).

  • Hathis-Ur is the First Tongue name for Silver Wolf, patron of the Ivory Claws. I find it interesting that the high-Rank Maters of the Roman Shadow actively take the name and image of their gods, but it isn't all that surprising when you think about it. Now, Cybele, I find very intriguing. The name Magna Mater would suggest she is Rank 6 at least. What appears to be the problem with this spirit? Insane like Irnanim the Colossus or secretly an Idigam?

  • Caladriu that seems like a reasonable roll and form of equipment to me. I'd say Strength + Crafts. In which case Wormwood would make a straight roll, and successes on that roll will go to Earth as bonus dice on the roll.

    ArchonAres Dusksage Wormwood the update is up!

  • The Throng

    The Titan leads Scout towards an electrified fence guarding an industrial workshop, something a little heavy duty for the area, but a strike of good fortune for the two. Empowered in the wake of the Firestorm, the Osirian finds himself a more potent conductor than he had been before. In seconds, his mummified flesh knit together with impossible speed, his humours invigorate with Pyros. Though Mark 5 seeks to punish himself by avoiding healing for now, stray bolts of electricity, no longer needed and no longer contained, arc out towards the nearest conductor, Mark 5. Snaking...

  • What, what?! An alternative Refinement! What?!? That is so mind-bogglingly cool. When I get my hands on this, I'm going to be brainstorming alternatives for all of the Refinements. What is the focus of the Refinment of Pneuma (Breath/Essence/Soul)? What is its practice? Does it have any new Transmutations or is it just an alternative to Aurum? What do you mean by departing the alchemical focus?

    So I guess the Prophets is the nickname for the Amirani Lineage?

  • What kind of rites do Sekhem Sorcerers get to use? And what is open rite mastery? What do Vestige ratings mean?

  • Regrettably, I did not, which seems to be a fairly regular bane of people who got into Mummy a little late. Find out about it later, but not soon enough to actually get early access to the cool stuff.

  • I so regret not backing this Kickstarter when I had the chance, but I'm excited to see all the really cool content we're going to get. The splat sheet on the lost Promethean Lineage the Prophets is in the Black Death and/or Hundred Years War section, is it not? What are they like?

  • I am very excited about this. More Mummy is always great to see. Which Immortals made the transition, and, more importantly, what are the Sekhem Sorcerers like? They were in this chapter, were they not?

  • Arcanist
    replied to Twilight Spirits
    If I recall correctly, don't Spirits use the local Gauntlet rating as a penalty to a roll meant to gorge themselves on a source of Resonance? Being in the material world instead of the Hisil means they have an easier time feeding, and Fettering themselves to a person, place, or thing, saves them from Essence bleed because a functional, and active, Manifestation stops the clock on previously active Manifestations (of which Twilight Form is the default). The physical world means a place to hide from other, likely more powerful, spirits that would be inclined to devour their lesser brethren as easy...

  • I very much like the little things Calcified Refinements says about the identity a Promethean is building for themselves. They are in a constant state of change, and Alembics are meant to be practical expressions of a philosophy. Calcifying an Alembic is choosing something to anchor yourself to, a piece of identity that you have already decided will be fixed. Calcifying Unbroken says to me that Mark 5 remembers, and respects, his experience as a Martyr, Calcifying Arc says to me that Earth respects how her Torment can be used as a weapon, and Calcifying Eros says to me that Adonis really values...
