    Yes, the Quoll-Lion is based on Thylacoleo carnifex, which is affectionately known as the Drop Cat in Aussie palaeo circles; a 1.5 metre long ambush predator whose jaw bones indicated that it could take down a Diprotodon*... you don't get much more serious than that.


    ( * Naming the Diprotodon expe a "bunyip" is a bit of a research failure. It makes no sense at all. Edit: Oh! So that's why...)...

    Indeed. The attack fails when the attack roll produces fewer successes than the target's defense. The attacker needs to equal or exceed the defense value to hit.

    With a target number of 7 and double 10's, a single die can expect half a success. So a pool of 10 can produce an average of 5 successes and will hit defense value 5 slightly more than half the time (in fact, it has a probability of 0.57195).

    That's why there's a divide-by-two in the calculation for defense value - a contest using equal attack and defense modifiers is supposed to be ballanced with a sligh

  • The problem with the One Ring is its ability to corrupt the user when its evocations are invoked.

    Only hobbits, lacking all but the most ordinary of magics-the ability to hide from bigger folk-could bear it for any length of time, because they could awaken only the basic evocations of invisibility (except to those able to perceive the immaterial) and life extension. Note, though, Mortal Men were more vulnerable than hobbits...

    Place it on the hand of an exalt and temptation to use it rises; most particularly if any of the Three, Seven, and Nine Rings are on the wrong...

    Note: these sets are not complements. Not all dynasts are exalted, and not all exalts of the Realm are dynastic....

    Okay, for clarity, the term Unnatural Mental Influence, and those spells, are from second edition (Book of Sorcery II: Black and White Treatises). So are you after second edition rulling, or a third edition upgrade? For the first case, Emerald Countermagic could be used to shatter any terrestrial spell in effect. The only question is interpreting if the spell's duration is instant or permanant. (Second edition spells were often unclear about this.)

    Beyond that, Peacock Shadow Eyes specifically allows several Investigation based social influences to unravel the spell (a count of...

    Sorcery is viewed with suspicion, so a Heptagram game may draw on some of the themes. Not precisely, but a bit more than Harry Potter,[LEFT][COLOR=#252C2F][FONT=Helvetica][SIZE=13px]...

  • A negative correlation between birthing rates and exaltation rates is presented as a factual observation around which some folklore has grown, but the exalts have a mostly accrate thesis.

    Progenerative potential accumulates to a peak over twelve to twenty years, and is only expended by conception - including by artifice. Abstinence is not an influence other than as birth control. Maiden tea works just as well.

    Still that won't stop some from getting odd monk-romantic notions.

    replied to MadLetter's Dragon-Blooded Charm Cascades
    Not that. Balanced charms still count as their keyworded element; they simply don't interfer with entering or staying in an aura of another aspect. When only Balanced charms are used on a turn to enter aura, the exalt may select any one of their aspects - this need not include her native aspect. Otherwise, you can treat them as being aspectless....
