  • I'd say Azatoth is closer to the God-Machine. Both are Blind Idiot Gods who create and destroy without a clear purpose, are responsible for maintaining reality as we know it, are associated with cosmic forces, and nobody knows what would happen if they woke up/were fixed. And Azathoth has at least one named agent who takes on human form. Who's to say it doesn't create many Nyarlathoteps like the God-Machine creates many Angels?...

  • Maybe, but he's also a classical example of the Bound (see Mage: The Awakening 2ED, pages 243 and 244). The reason he's so terrifying to the sailors that come across R'lyeh is that the Bound are Supernal. The sailors, being Sleepers, suffer Quiescence at the sight of Cthulhu due to the Abyssal Shard within their souls. However, Sleepers were not meant to visit R'lyeh. Cthulhu was supposed to wake up and bring forth even worse things, not rampage across the Earth like Godzilla. The presence of the Sleeper sailors was enough of a nuisance that the stars moved out of alignment, and Cthulhu sank back...

    These write ups for Fey got me thinking about a certain folkloric character from my country which could be a hobgoblin. I'm talking about the Saci. How would you write him up as a Horror?

    As a side note, how can you represent Bill Cipher from Gravity Falls as a Horror? I know he's probably some kind of strange Goetia, but I'd like to fine tune his traits. His Dread Powers would include Surprise Entrance, Pierce Mind, Twilight Entity and a version of Skin-Taker that works like possession. But should he have Physical Attributes of his own? Does he use the Physical Attributes of his...

  • Would the Homunculi from Full Metal Alchemist count as Extempore that start out as Centimani but later try out other Refinements?

    How about Wonder Woman? From Wikipedia:

    Or would she be a different type of being that draws power from the Divine Fire?...

  • Judging from a quick Google search, she's not a member of any splat. She just has the Psychometry, Clairvoyance and Cursed Supernatural Merits. Her Curse is that she will turn into a zombie if she doesn't eat brains (a typical zombie is represented as a Brief Nightmare on pages 149 to 150 of CoD). On the bright side, consuming brains lets her use Psychometry and Clairvoyance without spending willpower points or suffering dice penalties (though she has to roll to avoid temporarily absorbing the Virtue or Vice contained in the brain)....

  • Aku is not merely a shapeshifter, he is a godlike being with many powers that normal Idigam do not have. However, if we use some rules from Imperial Mysteries and some homebrew, we can give you an idea of how powerful he is.

    For starters, let's assume that when he tore open a portal in time, he was essentially casting the Time 4 "Temporal Stutter" spell (see Mage: The Awakening 2ED, page 191). Idigam of Rank 5 or less cannot do this. However, page 55 of Imperial Mysteries has this to say about entities of Rank 6:



    Therefore, it is safe to assume...

  • How about a Merit that lets you "adopt" mortals into your Brood, for creating cults and such? These adopted mortals could develop powers similar to those of the Brood, at the cost of being afflicted with Hunger-like compulsions.

  • Here's a simplified version of Xenorath's Inescapable that is closer to the canon Atavisms. Feedback is appreciated.

    Inescapable [Eshmaki]
    An Eshmaki on the prowl is always there, breathing down even the fastest victim’s neck. It is the nature of the Beast to not only be stronger or tougher than any mere mortal, but faster too.
    Dice Pool: N/A
    Action: Reflexive

    Normal Effect: No matter how hard the victim tries to run, the monster stalking him will always be just one step behind. Add the Beast's [Lair x 3] to her Speed. If she can't be seen by anyone...

  • I looked at the Preliminary Wonder Rules, and noticed some things.

    1) It does not say what Advanced Potency does.

    2) It says under Incorporating Components that the dice pool is Inspiration + Skill, but under Beta Testing, Doc Awful uses Intelligence and Wits instead of Inspiration to Incorporate Components. Why isn't the dice pool Intelligence + Skill + Inspiration, like in 1ED? Can you use non Mental Skills? What about Laboratory Equipment, Beholden Ability, Cooperation, spending Mania/Willpower, taking extra time and Conditions? Do Professional Training and similar...

  • Cryptid Huntresss/Researcher
    Her mission was to catch loose Cryptids that were interfering with the G-M's plans and bring them to facilities where they would become servants and resources. Regular exposure to so many wonders being locked away led her to wonder why the G-M did not share the benefits harvested from Cryptids with mankind. She Fell when she decided the GM was a wasteful and negligent master, and that she could do better. She became her own Cryptid hunter and researcher.

    She aims to create a Cheiron style company that sells products made from the research she and

  • The Xenomorph's mouth in my user image is facing the left.

    ​I haven't formed a precise mental voice for BigDamnHero yet, but judging from their name and current user image, my impression is that of a confident and dignified person that others would look up to, like a 2ED Fairest Changeling.

    How do you all currently imagine my "voice"?

  • I imagine that changelings subtly discuss and even place bets on who is more likely to be Bait (that is, sold out to the Huntsmen by their fellow changelings). They probably use euphemisms like Trophy, Jewel and other collectibles as a reference to how their Keepers took them like objects.

  • I often see you posting analyses of crunch, and you seem like a calm and focused person. Your user images further add to the feel of a collected scholar. But you also show a sharp sense of humor sometimes. The overall mental sound is close to that of Velma from Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc, but nowhere near as nasal....

  • So there was a thread about adapting the X-Men into the CoD as a micro template, and some people said it would be easier to just give them Supernatural Merits reskinned as mutations. That inspired me create Supernatural Merits that could represent Wolverine's signature powers, but also other powers with a similar flavor. I have the claws and healing factor so far. Feedback is appreciated.

    Conjured Weapon (••, ••• or ••••)
    Effect: The character possesses a melee weapon that he may summon or dismiss reflexively. The nature of the weapon can be anything from beastly claws and tentacles

    As a side note, Reighnhell, do you think the Horror template works for Hellboy? I was inclined to make him a Deviant, but considering the new information we received about Deviants' Scars and their Integrity equivalents, I am going for the Horror template in the meantime. I believe he'd have Potency 6 or 7, and exchange Attribute and Dread Power dots for Skill and Merit dots. I am unsure if he would have Integrity. He has a very human mindset, but Integrity also represents the soul's health, and I'm not sure if he has a soul. He'd also be able to Risk Willpower, earn Practical Experiences and...

  • That depends. Do you want him to be an Angel, a Demon, a Stigmatic or regular mortal? If he's a Stigmatic, his namesake teeth would be his Stigmata. If he's a regular mortal, he could have the 3 dot version of the Filed Teeth Merit from page 153 of the Slashers supplement for Hunter....

    Hey Reighnhell, I was inspired by your write ups for mythological beings, and made one for a certain ancient trickster that knows humanity all too well. Can you tell who it is, and did you like my interpretation? How would you interpret them?

    The world would be a lot simpler if everyone was who they claimed to be. Unfortunately, deception is a necessary tool for everyday survival in society. But many people take it too far, and have even started to believe the lies they tell themselves. Everyone wants to believe they would do the right thing, and as long as there is no temptation

  • I'm not sure if I like the first drawback. The dice pool for invoking Lair Traits and opening Primordial Pathways suffers enough penalties already. I would also prefer it if the Merit gave a third Lair Trait at 5 dots....
