    That is a fair observation. Do you think their Inferior Arcanum could be Time instead? Something like...

    "The Supernal Realm of the Ink Fountain is characterized by a distinct timelessness. The principles of Beauty and Purpose, with all their associated Symbols, exist outside the zeitgeist. To the casual observer, it certainly seems that aesthetic standards fluctuate immensely according to the framework of the current era. But this is merely the Nth facet of the Lie: the Fantastos are intimately aware that art flows from within and reverberates throughout all of history. The...

  • Gnomes

    There are many folk tales of creatures that live beneath the earth and build homes there, be it dwarves or kobolds. One such variety of hobgoblins are simply called Gnomes. They are talented engineers, mostly to compensate for the fact that they lack any self-defense skills of their own. While not exactly cowards, they are well-know for avoiding direct conflict whenever possible. Instead, they build efficient traps and cover any tracks of their passing that they can. If somehow caught, they beg for mercy and offer their considerable talents as payment.

  • The story of "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" by Dr. Seuss could be interpreted as being about a Namtaru Ravager who only leaves his Lair out of spite and annoyance at the joyful winter festivities, which he intends to ruin and get a lot of Satiety as well. But as the well-known ending says, the residents of Whoville were the ones to Teach A Lesson to the Grinch, which he takes to heart and becomes a better person.

    [New True Fae] Lohemel

    Note: I am using my house rules for the True Fae in 2e, and the 2e versions of his Kiths can be found here.

    Quote: “Fear not, I have come here to save you!”

    As far as Changelings are concerned, True Fae are villains for reasons that go without saying. But the thing about villains is that they are the heroes of their own stories, if you care to ask them. In all Arcadia, there are few Gentry who could hope to embody this idea more fiercely than the one who goes by the name of Lohemel.

    His assumed moniker already tells you what you really need to know about

  • Abominable Muse (Aspect): Whenever a Sleeper receives a Failure on a Breaking Point due to the actions of the entity, they gain the Inspired Condition (Abyssal Phenomena). If they suffer a Dramatic Failure, the Condition is Informed. This is in addition to the regular results of the Breaking Point. When an opportunity to Resolve the Condition presents itself, the Sleeper must either spend 1 Willpower point or roll Resolve + Composure - Rank. On a Failure, he stops everything he is doing and tries to Resolve the Condition to the best of his ability. This Abyssal Aspect may be combined with the...

  • My House Rules For True Fae In 2e

    By default, all True Fae have access to Ruled By Passion and Divine Flesh Fae Aspects.

    The former gives them a Virtue and Vice, but inverted in how they replenish Willpower. In other words, they can regain 1 Willpower from their Virtue once each scene and all Willpower from their Vice once each chapter. Otherwise, select Virtue and Vice for them as you would for a mortal.

    The latter heals all bashing and lethal damage at the start of each turn, and downgrade all sources of Aggravated damage into lethal (even magical ones), except Cold Iron. Damage dealt by Cold Iron and...

  • Important edit: I have replaced Decrees with revised Invocations, and changed Mystery Cult Benefits of Courts. I have also tried to address the other observations made by ArcaneArts.

  • atamajakki

    I am aware. The central idea of Alien: The Outsider was not inherently bad, it just missed the point. That being said, if I change my mind on revising said fansplat, I would try to fit it into the paradigm of Promethean. I distinctly remember that one of the Y splats for Alien was all about attaining some sort of anthropocentric apotheosis, which falls squarely into Promethean's main themes. I also remember that their Integrity Equivalent was a measure of how your eldritch nature was overwriting how real you were. Prometheans are always real, but their Azoth (and the Principle...

    Your review was a lot to digest, and I'm sure my revision was too. That being said, the fact that senpai took the time to write such a review makes me very happy.

    While I am proud of my revision, all your observations are valid. It's just not as good as it could be. I especially agree with your comment on the Decrees. I knew when I started writing that this section of the revision was essentially an attempt at fitting a round peg into a square hole. In my defense, the initial presentation of the revision was less involved and I wrote it on the spur of the moment....

  • My Thoughts On Alien: The Outsider And Cosmic Horror In The Chronicles Of Darkness

    In my opinion, Alien: The Outsider does not work as a fansplat, revised or not. The reason for this is straightforward: the ChroD is an implicitly anthropocentric setting, while the Cthulhu Mythos is explicitly anti-anthropocentric. Therefore, I shall not redesign Alien: The Outsider like I did with Genius and Princess. That being said, consider the analysis of this post.

    It is spot on and succinctly explains why the quintessential Cthulhu Mythos experience can be accurately captured in a game of Awakening. However, you start out as a Sleeper who investigates the cultists of the Great...

  • I have added the following feature to my revision to mitigate the issue of the limited transformation sequence. I know it is not exactly what the posters in this thread were asking for, but I want to keep internal consistency, such as it is.

    A number of times each Story equal to their Palace, a Noble can receive the Informed Condition on a roll to cross a Radiant Bridge by spending 1 Governance in addition to 1 Willpower. Nobles almost always reserve this for when one or more of their Subjects are in immediate and lethal danger. In this revision, the Begotten have an equivalent ability...

  • Saitama (One Punch Man) [True Fae Version]

    This version of Saitama made the mistake of striking a Bargain with the Wyrd to be stronger than all the other Gentry. The Wyrd, as always, gave what was asked for at an equivalent price. Now he can defeat anyone and anything short of entities like the Exarchs and the God-Machine. However, the Wyrd sees that as boring and is constantly threatening to erase him due to a lack of stories to tell. That's why he seeks non-combat challenges all the time: his existential crisis is quite literally killing him slowly. Also, the workout routine? That...

    You Don't Understand The Contract [Changeling Kinship]
    What do all of these words even mean? None of it makes any sense, and you can feel your freedom shrinking with each passing second. Chances are you might as well be selling your soul to the Devil.
    Dice Pool: Manipulation + Satiety vs Wits + Supernatural Tolerance

    Normal Satiety: The victim suffers a -2 penalty on all rolls to understand the fine print or implications of any contract, oath or bargain, whether it has legal weight or not. The words don't resemble actual ideas so much as they look like vaguely ominous...

  • This Atavism was originally written by ArchonAres

    Hydra's Regeneration [Namtaru]
    Like the namesake monster of Greek mythology, the Beast cannot be killed by dismemberment or even decapitation. Her extremities and head always grow back, and may even act independently after being severed to overwhelm his foes. Those who cannot escape will scream in agony as their flesh melts away.

    Normal Satiety: You may detach any or all of your limbs as an instant action, and control them reflexively. They crawl and slither on their own for [Stamina + Lair] turns, during which they...

  • I have made edits to the original post to address some of the observations made in this thread. I mostly just changed Conviction into Governance.

    Also, Beasts do not need the presence of at least one Lair Trait in order to open a Primordial Pathway. Read the relevant section closely: each Lair Trait that is present gives a cumulative +1. But it's not a prerequisite. The same principle applies to Nobles.

    As for this specific comment:

    Prerequisite: Mimir's Wisdom, Needs Must, Family Ties With A Mage, Wits •••, Occult ••
    Effect: When the Beast needs to roll for a Clash Of Wills using Needs Must, he gains bonus dice equal to the rating in this Merit. If the Clash Of Wills is successful, he may spend 1 Willpower point as a reflexive action to ask a number of yes or no questions about the target equal to rating in this Merit. The ST must answer truthfully. If the Clash Of Wills received an Exceptional Success, the Beast does not need to spend Willpower.

  • Princess was never unique, nothing is. It always drew inspiration from other materials like Sailor Moon, Superman and Wonder Woman. The juxtaposition between Bright Dream and Primordial Dream was there already. I just expanded the juxtaposition, and the game is only derivative if you misuse it. Furthermore, nothing forces Begotten and Nobles to be enemies, just like nothing forces Begotten and Unchained to hate each other....
