  • Initially, appointed by the August Personage of Jade or created by the Scarlet Queen and Ebon Dragon (in WOD cosmology, the embodiments of Yang and Yin), but over the ages entities from a variety of origins have claimed rulership of at least one of the Hells and joined their ranks - Malfeans from Wraith, former humans, and at least one (Ravana) strongly implied to have been a powerful Ravnos of early generation.

    These days Yama King is more a title than a distinct type of entity....

  • Neither do urban shamans or technoshamans, and yet they can be Dreamspeakers too. The Tradition is much more expansive than the stereotype alone.

    Does the character have a fundamentally animistic view of the world? Do they see themselves as an intermediary between the physical and spirit realms? Do they, or the spirits, think the Dreamspeakers would be a good (or necessary) match?...

    Based on what Rich Thomas said in this week's Monday Meeting comments (which was they were thinking of releasing it to backers at the same time it went public, or a little earlier), then soon, next Wednesday at earliest....

    replied to Non-wraiths and Arcanoi
    Book of Oblivion adds the level 3 Connaissance ability Renforcer Les Chevaux, which allows a Serviteur to give a mortal target the first level in any Arcanos the wraith knows, or a dot in Celerity, Fortitude or Potence, with the mortal using temporary Willpower to fuel them. It costs five points of Pathos and five points of temporary Willpower on the wraith's part, and a mortal can only have a number of Arcanoi equal to their permanent Willpower.

  • 3) Outrage allows hitting someone with the power of your mind, unleashing a telekinetic storm, conjuring up barrow-flame, and inflicting raw destructive energy that can send a target to Oblivion. Keening 4, when used in Embodied form, can terrify someone so much it leaves damage. Phantasm 5 lets a wraith temporarily rip out a sleeping mortal's soul, inflicting damage. Usury 3 allows the wraith to drain the health levels of a Skinlands subject they're in physical or spiritual contact with (via Embody, Puppetry, Phantasm, Inhabit, etc.).

    Wraiths also have a fair few mindfucking and...

    Mm. Demon took the name Charon, but looking at Houses of the Fallen, it actually suggests Wraith's Charon wasn't Demon's Charon, that they were simply namesakes....

  • Per Pardoners and Puppeteers, Puppetry can be used on changelings in their mortal seeming at standard difficulty, and in their fae mien at difficulty 9 on all rolls. On top of that, trying to Skinride a changeling in their fae mien results in nightmares that stop the wraith getting any benefit the next time they Slumber.

    The Puppeteers' Guild frowns on possessing changelings as being particularly unwise.

    If anything, when the Children of the Outer Dark have been described, they sound more like the Neverborn of Wraith than anything else.

    Mm... Based on the examples in the books, what mortals will find when they go looking depends, but it doesn't depend on their beliefs - see Camelot....

  • Right, I get it - Flickers generally takes its members from other phyla, rather than having a signature phyla of its own. Gotcha.

  • Just so we're on the same page, that's the Inanimae of artificial light, yeah? 'Cause the Empire of Flickers keeps getting associated with mannikins in C20, who're the Empire of Dolls.

    Any chance of the Empire of artificial light ever getting covered?...

  • From what Chris Spivey's said, the angle they're taking is the Mythos gods are uncaring, not actively hostile. They're not generally out to get you (unless it's Nyarlathotep or Y'golonac, but they're like that).

    I'm guessing that in this take Mythos worship would be angled more towards finding ways to adapt to a force of nature. Or finding there to be a fairness in that uncaring attitude, everyone receiving equal treatment....

    Alternatively, they're the Maa-Kep's associated minor Guild, as the Maar-Kherit are the Su-Menent's, and that's why they show up in their stereotypes....

    Might be better put as "Iremite guilds who were not included in the Rite of Return, but still attained some form of immortality" (the Maar-Kherit, for example, were eliminated for not going along with the Rite)....

    Monday Meeting 14/5/19

    Pulling this one from Vance in the current Ask the Devs thread: Crucible of Legends, which just popped up in first drafts, is the Storyteller's Guide.

    Also, The Realm is with WW for approvals, so fingers crossed it should be out next week.

    It's in their original writeup in Immortal Eyes: The Toybox. (And in a setting with the various animal-breed Fera, you can see where the idea came from.)...

  • It's been brought up; one of the demo characters has a demon's essence inside her.

    The Keeper would probably be done as an Exomorph Coactive (her Origin and Clade, respectively - being an Exomorph means she got her powers unwillingly, while being a Coactive means she's permanently marked by the supernatural) with the Symbiote Form, which means her powers have a mind of their own....
