  • A bit disappointing that you're not allowed to make new playable races, because I have some seriously cool ideas....

    DBs was a great book (I first read the 2E one). It was the book where I first learned about the Roseblack and she's been my secret DB crush ever since.

  • Really cool. Thanks a lot. This definitely fits the theme I had in mind for the armor and it works well with the character who wears it....

    replied to The position of the sun over the day
    When thinking about the Imperial Mountain as this super large mountain, I get a picture in my head of Creation as a sundial, where one part of it will not see the sun depending on which side of the mountain it's at. I don't like that, because it messes with the impression of dawn and twilight, and I hope that I'm overestimating the influence of the Imperial Mountain.

    It could be that the mountain has no effect on dawn or twilight at all unless you're really close to the mountain, and the light bends around it to the point where you can enjoy a full sunrise or sunset. If that's how...

    I've found that it's best not to think about it much. :P

  • I'll see what I can do about exploring the Golden Border further. There isn't that much to say about it though. Since it was broken off from the SSP, it's more or less a city-state with Rica as its only metropolis. Rica takes up the majority of the country and the surrounding wasteland consists mostly of uninhabitable ruins of old Rica. I mean, the wastelands could be elaborated a lot, but there's also a matter of how much space I'm willing to give it. There are already too many countries in the setting chapter, so I haven't prioritized Golden Border much since it's the smallest one....

  • That's fair. Like mentioned earlier in the book, the setting started out as an experiment to create a new setting, and I used those familiar aspects both to embrace the original setting and to give myself an easy transition into creating a new world from scratch. The Scarlet Corporation and all those details have become too integral to Machineborn to be changed in any significant way. However, and I think you'll discover this as well as you continue reading, the more I developed the setting after that point, the more things began to diverge. I'm going to try to make the Scarlet Corporation as...

    I'm just gonna leave this here and look the other way. If it (or a variation of it) accidentally ends up in the book, no one will know where you found it.

    Nothing can stop an angry Lunar. This Charm lets the Lunar ignore all movement penalties due to rough terrain.

  • I appreciate you pointing out all those writing errors and such, but I'm also curious about your general thoughts about the content.

  • Heh. I imagine that Stumptown takes up quite a lot of space though, so it should cover everything from Medford to Seattle (and Portland of course). Since everyone lives in cramped metropoli because the wastelands are pretty much inhospitable, the cities are huge. Wasn't sure about the name Stumptown though. I partially chose it as a joke, and partially because I kind of grew fond of it....

  • Thank you. I appreciate it.


    Good catch. This paragraph was originally written much later and then moved to the beginning. I'll add a page marker to indicate where you can read about the Jade Vault (page 54).


    Yeah, you're going to find a lot of that in this book. Some pages where there have been prior edits have gone through some "paragraph messing" to fill out space to not disrupt the layout. You're going to hate the Martial Arts chapter, but that's also a chapter I plan on rewriting now after what I've learned from writing Solar Protocols. ...

    replied to The Necromancy Homebrew Thread
    About the control spell effects: I don't want to force a negative effect where I don't feel like it would fit. Some effects are very negative, yes, but only in circumstances where it feels very thematic. I'm open to balancing this though in case there are effects that are so negative that it would keep people from picking the spells.

    I'll make some edits to those other spells the next time I'll make an update....

    replied to Manual of Inherited Power: Demigods
    I haven't read the document in full yet, but I think you've done a good job. Homebrew is often a passion project just as much as it is to "enhance the game." I for one write homebrew because it's fun, even if I'm not going to use it. I think you should keep the criticism in mind though if you want to use the demigods in your own game, and think about nerfing them. The problem is not the powers or the writing themselves, but that they (in their current writeup) may intrude on the design space of Exigents.

    My recommendation would be to nerf the powers and maybe translate some...

    If anyone within range has taken a lethal wound, it becomes "available" to the blood mage. They siphon necrosis from those wounds for their shaping ritual. It can be the blood mage's own wounds, or the wounds of those around her. It could also be a lethal worth of blood carried with her in a bottle....

    replied to If you could change the Solar Charmset
    I tried to make a Presence Solar once and had him know most of the Presence tree. I spent most of the time trying to piece out how many dice and successes I got from Charm X and Charm Y, then tried to calculate how some of the dice adding Charms interacted with my dice cap and how much I could spend on the Excellency. By the end of it, I decided to ignore using some of the Charms just to get a clearer picture of what I could actually do....
