  • I'm taking it as a very good sign that you have updated your signature Arc. Really looking forward to this one....

  • And my point is that if you know something is insulting and there is another thing that is also linguistically correct, you should use that instead. If you don't know and someone says what you're saying is insulting, you should respect that and believe them. If you continue to use the same language when there are equally linguistically correct alternatives that aren't insulting in that context, you (or I or anyone, I don't intend this to be personal) are being rude at best. It is semantics, but those semantics are relevant. If someone insisted on using retard to talk about me or anyone with learning...

  • That's the same sort of logic that people use to justify the continued use of racial slurs (I don't need to list them, we know which ones I'm referring to). That's also the same argument that people use to call me and people like me retarded, despite the negative connotations that carries. Even if it is linguisticly correct, it is grossly inappropriate and disrespectful in the context of a modern religious movement....

  • What the heck is your criteria for cult then? I have plenty of friends who are pagan and would have been branded as being part of a "cult" 20 or 30 years ago. They still get called that sometimes because they live in a rural conservative area, cult herby meaning "not Christian" and "I don't understand or like what they believe." I've heard Leliel's exact phrase used, but not calling them cultists is a basic sign of respect for their faith and beliefs, and an acknowledgement that their practices are neither harmful nor predatory. It's not rebranding, it's decent respect...

    replied to Mutapan Empire!
    Awesome era! I really appreciate time time taken to flesh out the various types of spirits and Svikiro in Mutapa. Super glad you dedicated so much time to them, it certainly feels like I learned something that was authentic about a culture of which I previously knew next to nothing. Definitely the highlight of the Era. Much like Sundered World, there is enough general information here that I would feel comfortable running most gamelines in this era. Crossover mechanics were really interesting. Not surprised that most of your sources had to be academic journals, there are precious few popular books...

  • I'I glad the Alaska hook was in there. Anything to get the concept of Residential Schools into people's heads.

  • Just finished. Solid read. As I said, excellent job setting the mood. Vampire crossover section was probably the highlight, although they were all good.

  • Yeah, that makes sense. Part of it may also be that I've always had trouble relating just how close the Civil War was to modern times. But that's probably my Canadian via showing through, since I never really learned about it other than knowing it happened until I was an adult....

  • Took me a while for the opening intro to "click", but once I read through the historical background it made more sense. I'm very impressed by how effectively you stuck with your guns at calling the Reconstruction "Post-Apocolyptic" and then showing just how accurate that descriptor was. I would not have thought it possible, but clearly I was wrong.

    The continuity of the Mage section seems a bit weird. The connection to the Nameless War is apt, but the text seems to suggest that the Nameless War and Civil War end at similar times, when the Nameless War continues...

  • Finally made it through the chapter. Excellent read. I'm going to have to take another look at Immortals now to brush up on how each type is supposed to work.

  • To be fair, it says that this is the preferred rite, so there could be a less awful/more efficient version. I think that really says something about what trying to screw with Sekhem is like though, as well as a lot about the type of people who mess with it....

  • And in that you were undoubtably successful. Sekhem Sorcerers easily continue the tradition of Mummy being the gameline mostly closely related to the Mythos. I like the system that sorcerers use a lot. It seems very flexible and easy to drop into non-Mummy games for a bit of easy crossover. Interesting to see conditions creeping into Mummy here and there too.

    Also, my god, the Parangelia Seth are creepy. The Rite of Seeding is disturbing as all get out and exile ritual made me wince....

  • Don't say from what I've read, but I don't think so. Pillars are analogues to Mana in Mage parlance, but they represent different parts of the soul, so they are influenced by different Arcana. Depends if there is an Utterence that does something similar. Could be a cool poet for the Decieved though....
