    replied to RWBY Volume 5
    At the time I poked my head in, there had been another discussion going on that I was keeping tabs on.

    And the “one or two days after the public release” thing has been honored in the past; I don't get why I'm being accused of being inconsiderate because it wasn't honored this time.

    Heck, a set of spoiler tags in the post that got me would have been fine.

    Even if we go with that for the sake of argument, there should still be a day or two from the public release: some of us have day jobs that don't let us watch the episode the moment it goes public.

    I was. There's a reason why the going rule of thumb is to wait a day or two after the public release before spoiling; and the public release isn't when people who have signed up with Rooster Teeth (free or not) get access to it.

    I shouldn't have to. I've watched RWBY through Crunchyroll from the start; I see no reason why I should be forced to change my viewing habits.

    I don't see why; that was perhaps the worst kept secret ever.

    I think what they're going with is that Faunuses (Fauna?) are all Lunars, due to their part-beast nature.

    Because Volumes 1–4 were. And they were here because RWBY has very strong Exalted vibes.

    replied to Here be Ponies!
    OK, how come nobody bothered to mention that there's a whole seventh season now, and a theatrical movie? Not to mention a trio of full-length Equestria Girls episodes (Dance Magic, Movie Magic, and Mirror Magic), along with several shorts. Have the bronies lost interest? Is there something wrong with the season? Or the movie? There's a lot to talk about here.

  • The alchemists presented in the core book aren't designed with player characters in mind, and it's assumed that they'll supplement their meager reserves with Pyros stolen from Prometheans. If you want something a bit more playable, I've worked up some alternate alchemist rules that are designed with player characters in mind.

    replied to Storypath System Preview
    Mental Force always struck me as being more about attention and recall than about reasoning and problem solving — for lack of a better term, Focus rather than Intellect. My preference would be to roll the reasoning and analysis stuff in with Mental Control, while Mental Force is more about how aware you are: I'd use it primarily for perception and recall: the ability to acquire the relevant facts for the situation at hand. Also, for the ability to process information: someone with high Mental Force should be able to sift through and organize mountains of information (the Mental equivalent of...

    Idunno. Mummy is getting a retooling; Deviant is being made from scratch. Even with Deviant development getting a head start, I could see Mummy 2e being released first.

  • One of M20's “Reality Zones” is the Earthly Foundations: things that are Vulgar regardless of belief (and, by implication, things that are Coincidental regardless of belief). To say that Mage is a subjective reality setting that is based solely on belief is to oversimplify Mage; it has more depth than that.

    started a topic Failed Refinements

    Failed Refinements

    In Dark Eras Companion (which I heartily recommend to any Promethean fan), we're introduced to Pneuma, a variant of the Aurum Refinement that's described as a failed Refinement (because it takes the Created's attention off of earning Mortality and encourages them to get stuck on that Refinement instead of learning from it and then moving on to something else).

    The purpose of this topic is to explore other possible “failed Refinements”: either variants of existing Refinements or cut from whole cloth, that look promising on the surface but contain subtle flaws that make them pitfalls...

    replied to [2E] Tammuz vs Unfleshed
    Bear in mind that the original five Lineages (Frankenstein, Galeteid, Osiran, Tammuz, and Ulgan) were always made out of corpses. It wasn't until the 1e supplement Magnum Opus (the Mirrors of the Promethean line) that the concept and mechanics of Constructs were introduced. 2e is actually a bit more open to Constructs than 1e was, in that the concept (if not the mechanics) is in the core book as something that exists, rather than being relegated to a book of setting hacks.

    (That, and the Unfleshed — who almost by definition are made of inanimate materials instead of flesh and blood...

  • Mostly, yes. It's still advisable to move around a bit; but that can be more akin to going on a vacation than leading a nomadic lifestyle: basically, there are some events that will happen eventually that will imposed or worsen a Wasteland; but they tend to be things that a Promethean can anticipate, letting him leave home just long enough to ensure they happen elsewhere.

  • Also: if you stay in one place for long enough, you'll generate a Wasteland; but that's only because if you stay in one place long enough, you'll end up doing something that generates a Wasteland. It's no longer directly caused by your mere presence.

  • The Revised Convention Books tweaked the Revised setting considerably to allow for the fact that they were published a decade after the Time of Judgment. In particular, the VE book implies that the Avatar Storm had more to do with the fall of the various Horizon Realms than with the Week of Nightmares, though the latter served as the final straw and triggered the physical destruction of the remaining Horizon Realms that hadn't already fallen. Think of the 2e metaplot as turning the Horizon Realms into a house of cards, and the Week of Nightmares as the push that finally knocked it down. (There's...
