  • Just wanted to say this AP inspired me to run a similar game with my group.
    Just a few changes on my end - the Prince is Carthian and the Anarchs are Invictus (because let's face it, it makes perfect sense); and Tourette isn't just a Malkovian, she's a Hollow (see Mekhet clanbook) who forgot which one is supposed to be reflection.


    As such, a couple of things I want to share:

    That Bloody Axe

    It used to be a regular fire axe, until someone used it to chop up a family like firewood. To this day, the blade is still stained by old blood, and the wooden handle...

  • Edit: The reference might not be obvious to everyone - Roy can change the oxygen content of an area at-will, and his gloves produce sparks. Oxygen-rich environment + ignition source == boom....

  • Well, I'd simply go with Windstrike, with an additional Reach for Advanced Scale....

  • Is this Archbishop the head of a cult? If so, instant Herd you do not want to mess with.

    Not everyone actively avoids their Clan Bane. Some might even embrace it....

    Well, look at that. It seems like the Free Council does have a point.

    Hide the Curse could also be done with Time - pull an alternate present version of the target which never got supernatural powers in the first place....

  • Spell Factors for Attainments, 101:
    Primary Factor = Arcana Rating of highest Arcana used in Attainment
    Secondary Factors = Half of Arcana Rating of lowest Arcana used in Attainment (round up/down, according to ST preference).

  • Damn, that sucks. Was legitimately interested in reading your thoughts on that.

    Anyway, my point is: Taint worked perfectly at my table, for the stories we wanted to tell, because we fully expected handling spiritual toxic waste would only have negative consequences in the long run. Admittedly, my table might be an outlier, but it was never an issue.

    I do agree with you on the point that this wouldn't fly in Mage, but for a different reason: I'm expecting the Abyss to be tempting. You can become Tainted against your will, but nobody's going to force to infuse your spells...

  • This on a setting which states it's highly dishonorable to fight duels to the death without permission from your superiors, yet illegal duels happen all the time anyway.Story fodder, right there.How's that any different from losing a character to a damage roll that happened to explode 3-4 times?...

  • My experience isn't quite the same. Back when my group played L5R, we've had quite a few characters getting Tainted, and we'd enjoy the drama that ensued: their pains keep it controlled for as long as needed to fulfill their duties, their embrace of a new power which they'd use for their personal/Clan's gain, their tragic ends when they lose control over it.
    Think it's a table expectations thing, as we all knew any of our characters could die at any moment, so we'd compete for the best "closing scene", as it were....

    I found this bit hilarious, since I work tech support for a web development company....

    Emphasis mine. Plenty of people on this thread could argue that yes, it is a form of technology, much more eloquently that I'll ever be able to.Understandable, then.
    I'm going to go back to a point made earlier in this thread, that science doesn't explain why gravity works, it only tells us how it works. That distinction right there is important. That distinction means that, using science, you can't prove (or disprove, for that matter) the existence of the Divine. For all science cares about, gravity works the way it does because God willed it so.
    My point is, even if "Magic"...

    That does seem to be the issue, yes. Vent0 made my point before me, you don't need a notepad to do science. "If I gain more confidence in my ability to shoot a Fireball, then I'll be able to shoot better Fireballs" *is* science.

    If you allow me a follow-up question: Is language technology?...

    Quick question for Nyrufa: If a sorcerer tries to practice his Fireball spell to figure out how he can make it stronger, is it science?

  • Instead, Co-Locate wherever you're in with the Manse. That way, even if you get out...
    Edit: Slightly better idea, make it work like Lair Traits in Beast....
