    replied to The D&D thread
    So two of my friends asked to join my group as players, while I'll join theirs as a player. The thing is that they play 4e. Now, I'm going to get there keeping on open mind, for even though it may not be my favorite system, I think that with the right group it is less about the system and more about the interactions between players and the DM. My current character concept is a Star Pact Warlock Deva (yeah, I know it is not optimal, but I like the concept) or my regular Human Wizard (perhaps an Eladrin, just to spice things up). We'll see how it rolls.

    replied to Contagion Chronicle book
    Looks cool- considering that each splat has its own deities and Powers That Be, I wonder how do they deal with the natural contradiction of the CofD's cosmology. Are there cults which marry the Dark Mother with the God Machine? Or which claim the Principle and the Wyrd to be aspects of the same divinity? there's a lot of story potential with those guys- especially since I could also see how some of the antagonistic individuals (such as some of the Seers or the Pure) could also be a part of the faction.

    Well, the thing is, that in the specific case, it is not something that is practically impossible- it is not that I allow a character to revive a fallen ally by using a good medicine roll, or fly by rolling natural 20 on acrobatics. The tarrasque is a monster, but it is possible to tame monsters. It is, in fact, a part of the original myth. Should it be difficult? Yes. Outright impossible? No. Will it largely depend on what the characters would do in order to make it even possible? Definitely.

    My guiding rule in cases such as like this one is that I want my players to feel like heroes-...

    I don't know, I think I would allow it.

    With a disadvantage. With a DC of 30. With a special requirement that the roll itself must be a natural 20.

    But I'll allow it.

    So my group is taking a break of around two weeks, and I must say I'm a bit scared. It is the first long break we had since we started playing, and we haven't played for that long (they are just about level 3). I finished the last session with a cliffhanger (a bunch of ploymorphed troglodytes has tried to murder them in their sleep. Unfortunately in the surprise attack I forgot they had 3 attacks each, which could have been cool since it should have been critical, but I still got two PCs unconsciousness so I'm fine with that), while they spent most of that session doing shopping in a fantasy style...

    replied to Entitlements Preview
    I must say that the way Entitlements are presented kind of remind me of the mange "Are You Alice?"- I don't want to spoil (and it has been ages since I read it), but the principle of "playing a role" which grants you certain privileges as long as you stay in role, and take them from you once you defy it, while basing some sort of an erratic clauses and interactions which seem to be invented by someone mad at best, really do give that kind of vibe into it. It is funny that as 2e went all the way in order to detach from the "Wyrd as a force of stories" theme, while...

    replied to LGBTQ+ in CofD games
    So I've just read once again the Voice of an Angel, and it occurred to me that through this thread, no one has mentioned that Marco Singe, the loved and half mad Pain Prophet, was presented as someone who at the very least has some homosexual preferences. I mean, the first fiction in the first book for the first edition of the CofD has started with Singe talking about his father beating him due to him having some encounter with another boy when he 12. It feels like it should be noted.

  • Wait- is that a thing? Never heard that theory before.

    And yeah, if you wish to introduce the God Machine into Forsaken's setting, using the Pangaeans as the Second Children is a good way to start- whatever relationship the old beast gods had with the Machine is up in the air, but I just can't see Father Wolf and the God Machine having friendly relationships. Bull, perhaps, Bird maybe- but Wolf? Far too different in character to work together. Perhaps Bird was the "demon" from the story which taught mankind the secrets of the Black Sun Map in exchange for the death brought...

  • Thanks! Somehow I missed that section. Of course, negotiating with my sister could be a bit of problematic, but at worst case scenario it would be solved by regular sibling battle :P

    (she usually wins)...

  • So I read the rules a number of times, and one thing I'm not sure about is artwork- if I am able to produce art especially for a product, I can use it without any problem, right? It is simply that me and my sister have always wanted to make a book together (I would write it, she would illustrate it), and I think the Vault could be a good opportunity to finally do so.

    That sounds more or less like what I had in mind for a Baalim connected strain, even though I haven't thought about using clones as a baseline. Interesting suggestion. I think it has some great potential.

    Anyway, I gives an heads up that I won't make a new blog post this week due to me needing to make some adjustment to my player's d&d adventure, as well as investing my time at writing the first draft for a Shard which I plan on publishing in the STV. I think I like how it comes out right now, so let's see how it rolls....

    replied to Ask the Devs
    Interesting! So if we were to put the level of transformation the Hearteaters went through on a scale, where at one edge we have the post Usurpation Lunars and on the other the inversion of Solar Exaltation into an Abyssal, to which edge the Hearteater would be closer to? Or perhaps they would represent the middle of the scale?...

    If Hearteaters are already mentioned, could you perhaps say anything cool about them? Like, how does adamant exactly express the themes of those Exalts (like the changing nature of Moonsilver, or shinning excellence of orichalcum)? It is just that among the optional canon Exalts, I am the most excited toward the Hearteaters, and the fact they resonant with adamant only increase my interest in them.

    HOLY SH***

    It has just occurred to me- if the Perspective is Bird the Pangaean, and the Perspective is described as "sick" many times through its writeup, what if the reason Bird has isolated itself from reality is not due to some clever trickery to survive the collapse, but because it is, well, infected- and I mean, contagion infected. What if the whole "Perspective" thing is just the "Bird Contagion"'s vector, and how it infect other people? What if the only thing which stops a world wide apocalypse is the fact that Bird is trapped in some god forsaken...

    Thanks, Charlaquin for the clarification. I'm not really in tune for most of the changes in D&D (other than UA), so I get most of the new information about the game mostly from this thread :P

    Not really- Ein Soph is, more or less, the origin of everything. It is just that Ahura Mazda, or the Principle, is closer to the origin than most of the other Powers that Be. More than that, Ein Soph describes an unmovable object- an unmoved mover- and the Saints are born from its refined light. The Principle is the edge where reality spins around that solid point of light and burn by the touch of divinity- it is the movement of the universe, which is close to the First Light but still different from it....
