    replied to Demons of Inferno
    So, here's another way of framing that idea.

    The idea of Sin is what it is because it is transgressive to whoever thought it up, in the same sense that Grace is what it is because it is transcendent to the situation in which someone thought it up. If you are a Dominion, living in the Inferno, then what could possibly be sinful for you to consume? You're all Dominions, nothing is sacred to you, there is nothing for you to transgress against. There's no rush of pleasure for doing something "bad" that you find to possibly be a (perhaps comforting) personal flaw. You might gain...

  • ArchonAres Haberdasher Caladriu Wormwood sorry that took so long. I've been working more nights than usual and I have been just wiped, but now we're on to the Ramble proper. A little more detail on Erwin and what he's gotten himself into, but I think you'll be surprised by him, when the time comes.

    For now, Erwin seems to be holding out against Disquiet, but you have no idea if it's a side effect of his alchemical experimentation, or a matter of will to maintain the relationship against the scorching obsession of the Flame Immortal. He already knows that Erwin is likely working for Amalgama under duress, and one evening, when he first turns his callous and analytical mind towards the problem, turning the charm onto Erwin, it seems like a dam simply gave way under the pressure of his discontent. Erwin starts telling him everything, about how the company was more mercenary...

    Evening- Wednesday December 21st

    The Ramble normally gathers on Friday nights, but the Winter Solstice is a special date for the Created. It's been passed word of mouth and in Pilgrim Marks from Created to Created across the city. Special meeting, come if you can. The Created have no religious observances beyond those they put together themselves, they have no unifying faith or creed, they have the philosophies of the Refinements to help identify kindred spirits, and they have the tenuous tangled family trees of Lineage to look back on. But still, the turn of...

  • Okay, so, as I'm currently running a Promethean game on the forums (that my players have been telling me they rather enjoy) here are some of my pointers in regards to general Storytelling and/or background for your game.

    1) Milestones aren't set things, they're choices. The characters define a Milestone, not the Storyteller. If you have specific Milestones in mind, make them about choices and experiences, so that there are multiple possible interpretations. There's no right way to be human, and so there's no right way to tackle a Milestone.

    2) Pandorans are deceptively...

  • And that is that, the Interlude vignette is done. Pandorans slain. Nice work guys, thought the Thorned Unborn had you on the ropes there for a minute. Note to self, Pandorans are very, very scary. Throwing more than one, and/or some above Rank 1, is High Stakes Stuff.

    Wormwood with Soldier complete, will Mark 5 stay on Ferrum and Master it? (Possibly creating an Athanor in the process?) Or will he be moving on to a different Refinement, or even seeking out a mentor for a Complex Refinement?

    Haberdasher ArchonAres Dusksage we'll be getting back into the game proper soon,...

  • The Garden

    Earth and Mark 5

    The Unborn burn in the dirt and the mud, leaving behind nothing but ash. To people on the street attracted by the loud not-quite explosions of Earth's lightning, and the burns on her hands and forearms, with Mark 5 wrapped in a tarp to cover the worst of his injuries, it looks like an accident with accelerant using fairly common protocols for disposing of chaff within the city and outside city limits. Burning is usually the right idea, because it leaves ash that can be churned into the ground, give something back to the soil for next year....

  • Wormwood It is! It means that you're invested, and that the Pandoran was sufficiently challenging! Fortunately for you, Caladriu set fire to a decent sized pile of wood, both Pandorans are now incapacitated for the next couple of turns, and that fire is big enough that it should be able to kill both of them before the Stunned Tilt wears off. Only question is, do you think Mark 5 understood what it means to be a Soldier here?

  • The Garden

    Earth and Mark 5

    The Titan, with panic, desperation, and pain, beat on the Unborn that had him limply in its grasp until the thorned roots tore free from his flesh and the thing slumped to the ground. Without his Transmutations, he had no doubt he would be in incredible agony right now, but with his alchemical insight into the body, pain is elevated into controlled bursts of adrenaline. He gets out of the way, moving towards the piles of old, weather-eaten beams that used to form the framework for a garden bed.

    The Fury stalks forwards towards...

  • Caladriu forgot about that aspect of the Arc Alembic, my apologies. And I'd say you could, even with the Persistent Effect. There's plenty of dead wood that you've been clearing out from the garden. Fire is a pretty good weapon against Pandorans too, if you're willing to pick it up and swing it around, or throw it at them.

    Wormwood I don't think he'll be going to the rivers just yet. You're near a ton of wood just lying around, even a few beams that could deal some pretty hefty damage. Who knows, with how Mark 5 chooses to handle this, it could resolve his Soldier Role via defeating...

  • The Garden

    Earth and Mark 5

    The Titan manages to overpower the creature, grabbing onto roots even as the thorns dig into his palms, pummelling it with fists that strike like heavy iron mauls, but the Unborn abomination rises up, roots wrapping around his arms and digging deep, long strips of flesh ripping as slick roots already wet with black bile soak in it some more, limbs carrying flensed sweetmeats into its many waiting mouths and more roots striking just as quickly to replace them. The creature is seemingly crawling up his body now, as the roots dig in, many mouths...

  • The 8-again is a special feature of the tentacles/roots that I gave it. Again, still just a Rank 1 Pandoran, they are unbelievably nasty creatures, and sublimati, the intelligent, humanoid versions of them, are even worse because they can access Flux Transmutations. One with the Mutation Alembic and Pyros to burn (sublimati can stay active by feeding off residual Divine Fire in humans) can constantly reshape itself as a maelstrom of twisted flesh, shifting and warping into increasingly hideous and dreadful forms. Let's hope you never encounter a praecipatus, because they are even worse (albeit...

  • You also had Arc charged up to AoE, Aggravated Damage, and Extended Damage levels. And yes, he is. I'll have to edit that in. It appears as though Mark 5 has finally come across something with a bigger dice pool than him.

  • Duly noted Dusksage. As far as the game is concerned, Regret has retreated to his camp to be Introspective and meditate on his Elpis Vision. Not a problem Haberdasher take your time! It's a crazy time of year for a lot of us.

    ​As a bit of a fun fact Caladriu and Wormwood the lone Pandoran you're squaring off with is only Rank 1.

  • The Garden

    Earth and Mark 5

    The wooden body of the abomination bends but doesn't break under Mark 5's flurry of fists, and it lets out a creaking warble of outrage, like a stiff breeze rushing through the trees and smashing branches together, creaking and moaning. The Unborn doesn't seem terribly perturbed by the Titan's onslaught, as it simply heaves itself forwards out of its hole, thorned roots clutching at the ground the way a drowning man grabs any plank in a storm. Earth hurls a thunderbolt that chars the creature's hide and sets it smouldering, but that doesn't...

  • Caladriu fun fact, there's a story about a tribe of Thunderbirds that lived on Vancouver Island and laid down their masks and feather cloaks to live as humans. They stayed like that, living among the people, until one local clan forgot the true nature of the tribe that had been Thunderbirds and attacked with the intent of taking captives for slaves. It didn't end well. I thought it was a pretty cool rumour/urban legend myself, spent a lot of the last year studying folklore and religion academically, so I sort of know how these things work now. You're not wrong about the Begotten angle. Stories...

    Earth and Mark 5

    The Fury leans in closer towards the mud, brushing away at the dirt, when a root thick with thorns and slick with black bile lashes out of the ground, whipping towards Earth. It misses by a long shot, groping madly in the mud, churning it into a slurry of fluids and earth as more thorned roots emerge and drag the thing forwards with a sucking sound like the world was trying to keep this thing from emerging into the light. Dymond screams, fleeing into the Ross House and locking the door behind her with a long list of hissed expletives. You can...
