  • Sorry for the long wait on getting to my response. IRL stuff and picking apart the Wr20 corebook on my own...

    Yeah, playing up some of the dangers of the Skinlands is something I want to do.

    That Insubstantiality only makes a wraith tough to Skinlands damage, not invincible.


    Oh slight tangent:

    When reading through Wr20 one thing that struck out to me was that in terms of setting, mechanics, and themes...

    Wraith feels very similar to Vampire.

    Both games have the whole conceit of "Well, you're dead/half-dead...now

  • Hmmm...it's tempting for me to check into Anthem if that's the case.

    Granted there is the small issue of needing to gather up a reliable crew of buddies who want to do the co-op stuff...and there's the small matter of still having other games on the backlog I probably shouldn't be keeping waiting. >_>

    (Meanwhile, I'm counting down how long it'll take before the live-service-hatedom-of-gaming tear it apart completely...although it seems like they've already started on its cosmetic microtransactions being too pricy...)...

    Presumably not. Otherwise why would have Mophidius agreed to continue making books for V5 if there wasn't any marketable and profitable value left in it?...

  • I do not think they do.

    The text makes multiple references to how, when a changeling comes back through the Hedge and check in on their previous life, they see someone that looks exactly like them in their place. So presumably can only see their "Mask" and not the detritus that is composed of their actual form. However, just by the fact that the Fetch is a doppelganger of them, the changeling should, in theory logically deduce what it actually is.

    So the notion of being able to see a Fetch's "Mein" is unnecessary....

    Yeah: the biggest challenge for a theoretical Hunter20 is rewriting the setting so that it's not dependent on Revised's metaplot elements.

    Same deal with a theoretical Mummy20 and Demon20....

  • ...Camilla didn't you make a big deal about how you weren't going to insert your views on personal horror anymore because you know it leads to arguments from others?

    Why are you still doing this?...

  • By RAW, I don't think dropping the Mask and its mechanics are intended to be used in the Hedge.

    The mechanical effects described are written with the assumption that you're doing this Ironside, considering the multiple references to being witnessed by mortals. And since while in the Hedge, a changeling's Mask isn't present at all, dropping the Mask wouldn't be a thing.

    And I don't think trying to do the inverse would work either: if anything, putting on the Mask could be seen as a DENIAL of your fae side. So no more liberal exceptional succeeded Contract rolls for yo...

  • Yeah. Seemed obvious to me the other remaining 4 Seeming Benefits for each Arcadian Contract weren't added was due to the almighty Wordcount.

  • 2e Contracts don't use dot scaling any more.

    Now when it comes to power they're split into two categories; Common (rating 1-3) and Royal (rating 4-5). The rationale given by the devs was that in-story, it doesn't make sense for a contract to get more powerful the more you use it. So now, each individual contract only has the one power associated with it....

    Werewolf, Demon, and Beast have them. But Vampire, Mage, Promethean, and Changeling do not have Stereotypes on the other gameline splats....

    ...aaaand that's what tripped me up.

    Reading through the Insubstantiality write-up as is, it doesn't contain any direct references to the Corporeal States section, and thus I didn't make the connection that that's what it was referring to. Probably a reminder this section was added in haste as a response to errata...

    Either way, thanks....

    started a topic Insubstantiality Limits

    Insubstantiality Limits

    So, looking at Insubstantiality (Wr20, p 126) it...feels incomplete crunch-wise.

    I'm ok with interpreting the "minimal expenditure of Corpus" as "spend 1 Corpus" but what gets me is determining duration. Is the wraith insubstantial for one turn? One scene? One hour? Or do they only use insubstantiality for every instance they need it: 1 Corpus spent for walking through one particular wall, but then needing to spend an additional 1 Corpus to walk across

    Also, is Insubstantiality for use in the Skinlands, Shadowlands, or all of the Underworld's realms...

    True.

    Even then, it sounds like the next book like it is instead going to be a "Dark Shards" book, covering alternate settings instead of alternate time periods. So definitely a long way away before a DE3....

    I think it's been said that the door is open for the Contagion to pop up in Dark Eras...but it's going to be up to the individual devs on if they want to include them in said Eras, and not a mandate by OPP.

  • Oh and just to give further context: the chronicle I'm planning is set post-6GM. But roughly today, meaning it's been about 20 years since it started. Although the Tempest is still very much an ever present threat.



    Starting with a small chunk, then branching out.

    Most of the action is going to be contained to just the one necropolis (currently considering San Francisco). While things will eventually open up to other neighboring necropoli and even to Stygia, but otherwise this necropolis is the main focus. With all the constraints that come with it (no immediate...

  • Wraith as "Personal Post-Apocalypse"

    "I close my eyes, I see my life before all of this. Before the bombs. Everything can change in an instant, and the future you plan for yourself shifts - whether or not you're ready. At some point, it happens to all of us.

    This, wasn't the world I wanted; but it was the one I found myself in…I thought I...I hoped I could find my family. Cheat time. Make us whole again. The way we were.

    I know. I know I can't go back. I know the world has changed. The road ahead will be hard.

    This time, I'm ready."
