    Kindred of the East and Virtue Max

    Greetings,

    I have a doubt about the Virtue Pair Max, and Trait Max based on Dharma: does the Trait Max limit the Virtue Max value? For example, is a Dharma 3 Kuei-Jin limited to a maximum Hun of 5?

    Thanks,

  • Oh sorry it was incomplete, the idea is that the Benders in the avatar world would rarely suffer from paradox, hence the use of two or more dedicated tools, I should have added Athletics also, so it would look like this:
    • Adamant Hand (Athletics, Brawl) + Broad Dedication+ Profligate Dedication (Athletics skill, Brawl skill), OR...
    • Techné (Acrobatics, Martial Arts) + Broad Dedication+ Profligate Dedication (Acrobatics, Martial Arts)
    Sorry for the lack of clarity...

  • Love this Ban, but a concerns that a player raised: would be better to lose defense alone, lose defense and halving speed, or halving both speed and defense? (In tune with the sluggish idea and trying to balance a Rank 3 ban)...

    Crossover and future editions

    Greetings,


    Are there any plans to streamline different gamelines to allow mixed play in an easier way? For example, Vampires have Humanity and Kuei-Jin have Soul Virtues but no other splats have this "morality" trait... Nobody but Vampires has Virtues... Disciplines, Gifts and Spells have weird (mechanics wise, not fluff wise) interactions with each other.

    Has this been mentioned for future editions development?


    Thanks,

  • What would be an suitable Ban for this spirit? (either as a magath or as a regular spirit)...

  • Ok, yes, it would make sense something like Bane: A human voluntarily celibate for a year.

    I am not certain in the influences, originally I was using: Money 1, Passion 2, Sex 1, Violence 1, Youth 1; inspired in the Resonances from Shunned by the Moon. And I wanted to use money to symbolize paid sex, violence for abusive sex and youth for more unsavory practices.

    Would those ideas be covered more with Influences: Lust 3, Vice 3? Or a spread of Lust 3, Vice 1, Money 1, Violence 1?

    Multiple instance merits

    Can a character have multiple instances of the Mystery Cult Initiation, or the Professional Training merit? Several merits specify that multiple instances are allowed but those two are not clear about it.

  • Thanks, understood your points. A primary question, what would be a good broad or generally applicable category for this character (specially considering what has been said about his goals)???



    And as a secondary question (I might post it as a new topic) if I wanted to use an Avatar the Airbender movement/fighting style as my dedicated tool what would be better:
    • Adamant Hand (Brawl) + Broad Dedication+ Profligate Dedication (Brawl skill), OR...
    • Techné (Martial Arts) + Broad Dedication+ Profligate Dedication (Martial Arts)


    I think that thematically Adamant...

  • Why? Not being facetious, i really want to know why it must be that way? Why cant a mage (or any other supernatural) use the cult of spirit obsessed mortals to get money and human resources? (Resources and Contacts/Allies dots) or mystically hide himself with the cult symbolism (Occultation, Shadow Name, Cabal Theme) and expand her understanding of Yantra use (Broad Dedication, Profligate Dedication)...

  • There are many merits that are either mortal only (51, some of them with variable dot rating), sleeper (8), sleepwalkers (7), wolf-blooded (14), or ghouls (15), some merits are mutually exclusive, but the point is that there is a vast list of mortal only merits to play with.


    Mystery Cult Initiation (Esoteric Order of the Celestial Wolf)
    Apocalypsis Fidei
    •• Raised by Wolves
    ••• Invenire Venandi
    •••• Manticae
    ••••• Medium


    But I can easily make another list:

    Mystery Cult Initiation (Sons of Suffering)...

  • You dont seem to understand, the text for Mystery Cult initiation states:



    The cult gives you Sleeper-only merits, a mage does not qualify, so the mage uses those merit dots to obtain the ones listed in parentheses....

  • ArcaneArts indeed that is close to what has been considered, you make far reaching points. The idea was to get the largest bang for their buck with merits, in a broad reaching way.

    The character admires part of the Mysterium mindset and some of their techniques (Mysteriorum Calamitas, and Mysteriorum Arche) but would never join them, too dismissive of ordinary humanity. He also admires the Adamantine Arrow for their selfless devotion (when it is aimed at humanity in general, or sleepers). Silver Ladder are seen as an ideological mirror image, close enough on their admiration of the...

  • Yes, my example Cult is geared towards sleepers, and mages just take a different merit because the listed ones are unavailable to supernatural creatures:

    Mystery Cult Initiation (Esoteric Order of the Celestial Wolf)

    Apocalypsis Fidei (A mage takes Themed Cabal)
    •• Raised by Wolves (A mage takes Broad Dedication)
    ••• Invenire Venandi (A mage takes Profligate Dedication)
    •••• Manticae (A mage takes Shadow Name •••)
    ••••• Medium (A mage takes Occultation •••)...

  • Part of my game, we have a Free Council Mastigos theorist, that believes that all the semiotics are just crutches, all symbols are just obfuscating true meaning, and that all the Yantras are useful just because human will works through some self-deception, therefore he wants to reap the benefits of Yantras and Dedicated Tools with pure mental exercises.

    The closest I imagine to that would be a combination of Techné (Some broad practice here: Rationality, Scientific Method, Algorithms??) + Broad Dedication (Said practice) + Shadow Name (Something Relevant to the Practice) + Cabal Theme...
