    I see that you get a new "slot" to use per Calling dot, but nothing about learning new knacks in the process:...

    What are the most useful Knacks?

    Greetings,

    As the title says, what are the most useful (compared to equivalent level i.e. Immortal or Heroic) knacks during play? By useful I mean, either most bang for your buck or most frequently used, it can be for each Calling, or perhaps there are clear winners overall.

    And as a secondary question, regarding the Omniglot Translation knack, does this knack make you conversant in all languages, or does only work in languages you already know (just granting speed in the process)?

    Crafting Relics

    Greetings,

    I have some questions regarding crafting, perhaps you can clarify for me:
    1. What Legend do you need to have to craft Relics?
    2. Any crafter can create a relic that grant access to a single Boon?
    3. Any crafter can create a relic that grants access to a Purview?
    Also, do you get a new knack when getting extra calling dots? (Legend 2 and 4)....

    What are the most useful Purviews?

    Greetings,

    What are the most useful/generically applicable purviews? Whether as with specific boons or the innate power.

    Thanks,

    2e Optimal Combinations? Knacks + Purviews + PSP

    Greetings,

    I am just familiarising with second edition, and I just noticed that some combinations of Callings and Purviews offer really focused characters that surpass equivalent choices and are thematically appropriate:
    1. Creator/Sage + Forge + Demiurgy
      Perfect Crafter.
    2. Druid/Judge/Sage + Chaos/Fortune + Geasa OR Wyrd
      Hexxer Prophet.
    3. Judge + Order + Asha
      Ultimate Judge.
    4. Judge/Hunter + Death/Order + Nextlahualli
      Eternal Executioner.
    5. Judge/Leader + Order + Heku
      Supreme Leader and Judge.
    6. Leader + Death + Cheval
      Spiritual Potentat

    replied to 2e Purviews, Knacks and other questions
    Thanks for the detailed explanation. I am extremely confused on the new edition, so I will make further questions (perhaps I should make a dedicated thread):
    1. If you have only 4 boons at Legend 4, those boons can be from any Purview that you have access right? Either innate or granted access through guide/relic?
    2. Do relics/Guides grant access to specific Boons or only to Purviews?
    3. When a Guide/Relic grants access to a Purview you get the innate power of the Purview immediately or do you need to do something? (Besides any possible Flaw in the Relic).
    Any help is appreciated....

    Thanks for the answers, I wasn't even aware of the Calling limits, I thought you bought them with experience.

    You mention boon slots, your known boons are also limited by a stat? Which one? I know that imbuing depends on Legend....

    replied to 2e Purviews, Knacks and other questions
    Critian Caceorte Thanks for the answers, I should have been more specific regarding question 3. If I have 5 dots in each of the Callings, how many active Knacks do I get? 5 knacks total or 5 for each Calling? A Creator 5, Sage 5, Trickster 5 in my example.

    And for the Teros, I was expecting Demigod and God to have pantheon-specific boons at that level, but if you can point me to which document says that no further pantheon-specific boons will be released....

    2e Purviews, Knacks and other questions

    Greetings,

    Just discovering Scion 2e, and some question arise:
    1. If you have a Purview with a specific subset: Artistry, Beasts, Passion.
      • Do your boons only work on that subset? Like Beast (Monkeys) or Passion (Fear), only that specific animal/passion?
      • If your parent has the subset All, do you need to pick an initial subset (animal, art, passion) or can you use your boons on all conceivable subsets?
    2. Knacks and Callings. Assuming I have 5 dots in my three callings, can I have in total 5 knacks active or 5 knacks for each calling?
    3. Is there any way to get another innate (not

  • 1st edition books and and 2e: Setting, Bloodlines, Disciplines and creatures.

    Greetings,

    I have a lot of questions regarding Ancient Bloodlines and second edition:
    1. Ancient Bloodlines: Are there any plans to convert the bloodlines there to 2e?
    2. Ancient Bloodlines: Are any plans to convert Kindred Vodoun to 2e? And to update the New Orleans setting with it?
      I loved the Vodoun aspect but it was confusing when you already have been using the New Orleans setting. One of the major plot points in New Orleans is that Baron Cimitiere wishes to create a new blood magic that is vodoun-based (and a whole Covenant to go with it), and then comes Ancient Bloodlines

    W20 Stacking damage effects

    Greetings,

    I was writing on a thread regarding optimal packs, and got to a point regarding damage dice, it got me thinking about how do stack the gifts/fetishes that double damage (Coup de Grace, Hunter's Talons) dice with automatic successes (The Cleaving Hoof, an attribute or ability specialty).

    Got two specific examples:

    EXAMPLE 1
    • Base Strength 5 (Claws specialty).
    • +4 Strength Crinos Form.
    • +2 Strength Favour of Fenris Fetish.
    • + Any to hit spill over bonus.
    • +1 Claw attack.
    • +2 Razor Claws.
    • +1 Fire Claws Fetish.
    • +2 Soul of Lighting Fetish.
    • +2
    ...

  • In W20, Razor Claws lowers the to-hit difficulty by -1 AND adds 2 dice of damage, but no difference in Damage difficulties. I can do some calculations for optimal brawl, melee, and soak dice pools:


    BRAWL (to hit)
    • Dexterity 5.
    • Brawl 5 (Claws specialty).
    • +1 Dexterity Crinos Form.
    • +2 Dexterity Favour of Fenris Fetish.
    • -1 difficulty Razor Claws.
    • -2 difficulty Battle Torc Fetish.
    13 dice at difficulty 3. That is a 99% chance of at least 7 successes, not counting double successes from the specialty.

    BRAWL (damage)
    • Strength 5 (Claws specialty).
    • +4 Strength

  • Nail Eater thanks for your response, I will try my best to address your points:


    Think of W20 as mostly Revised plus.



    All of this is true. But look at the main selected tribes: Children of Gaia and Glass Walkers, tribes with more Metis acceptance.


    W20 Stargazers are WP 4, while I can not find the quote for previous editions, it is widely known now.



    Character optimization is not only math, but math is required to have solid arguments when numbers are involved.

    Please check a Binomial Probability...

  • Thanks for the critique, but I think you have the rule sets mixed, I stated that I am using W20 in the thread title:


    I favour Metis since they have no restrictions on Abilities or Backgrounds and higher Gnosis than Homids, plus the great Sense Wyrm gift (Primal Anger it is also good). Metis is superb for combat since Garou can shapeshift into their breed form in an instant, and a Metis' Breed Form is 9 foot tall and has spiky bits at the end. They can also regenerate in all forms.

    In WoD combat the ruling stat is Dexterity as it adds to initiative, dodges, blocks...

  • Nail Eater thanks for the ideas, I had not considered those Gifts and Rites. Updated my posts with them, and got another idea for a minimalist team

    Code:
    Breed: Metis
    Auspice: Ahroun
    Tribe: Children of Gaia
    Nature: Competitor
    Demeanor: Soldier
    Rank: 1
    Physical: Strength 5 (7/9/8/6) (Claws), Dexterity 5 (5/6/7/7) (Close Quarters Combat), Stamina 2 (4/5/5/4)
    Social: Charisma 4 (Imposing), Manipulation 1 (0/0/0/0), Appearance 1 (0/0/1/1)
    Mental: Perception 2, Intelligence 1, Wits 5 (Quick Thinking)
    Talents: Alertness 3, Athletics 3, Brawl

  • Depending on which spheres and what rating are you limiting it.

    Mind 3 makes you the best translator, life-coach, psychologist and confidence trickster in the world.



    Nearly every sphere makes you rich at level 5, since you can make money with it directly, or charge another mage for services rendered....
