    replied to The Fallen Realms
    Hunter has interstitial terrains, including whatever outer realm was glimpsed in the Ten Photographs of Philadelphia story from the Horror Recognition Guide.
    The God-Machine's deeper facilities and more complicated workings are generally technically part of the material realm, but segregated and temporally folded in ways that resemble pocket dimensions and alternate timelines.
    Summoners has a chapter on things from other, uncategorized realms, such as the inhuman and transitory Men in Black and the world-parasite Hellmenth (which are probably the soul-siphons you recall from first...

    replied to THANK YOU OPP FORUMS!
    Congratulations and the best to the both of you. Sometimes we find a piece that feels like it was missing from us all along, and that can happen anywhere, at any time.

    Go into it for the long haul. Keep communication open with one another, and be ready to shoulder burdens and be patient. Love is long if you make it so.

    replied to Lancea et Sanctum
    I'd just like to drop a reply off thanking Hermeticus for posting this. I've been rather unsatisfied with what I found superficial presentations of the Islamic and Judaic "Creeds" of the Lancea et Sanctum, but I haven't seen a perspective on the topic shared by a Muslim gamer until now, and you've provided me some further angles to chew on I hadn't considered.

    I do definitely incline your way in interpreting the Sanctified as something very different from vampires still dedicated to something resembling their faith from when they were alive. That contrast is fertile gro...

  • Prefacing that this is how I remember it off the top of my head:

    The Golden Road is one particular means (the most reliable known means) of becoming a supernal god, and for archmasters it is a work in progress: the Golden Road is not complete until they Ascend. An archmaster is human until they complete their great work of imperium, at which point they become a living symbol or idea, like other supernal gods. (Contrast with astral goetia, who are living thought-forms. Can an concept exist without anyone to conceptualize it?)

    There's more to Ascension than there is to...

  • It's shorthand for three-and-higher, yes. In almost all cases there's no difference between seeing a prerequisite of Strength ••• and of Strength •••+, likely a quirk between writers not caught in the editing. I'd guess the intent is to make more clear that these Merits can be taken at higher dot levels as well - contrast with the rare Merits that stipulate both a minimum and maximum, like second edition Werewolf's Blood Affinity and Bone Affinity Merits, which must be taken while their Harmony is between three and eight dots.

  • That's how previous editions presented them. It's not the only possible explanation for why Sidereal magic would be restricted to a set of very potent but particular types of effects....

  • The death of a signatory doesn't nullify a pact; the pact's altered history remains in effect unless the pact is itself destroyed. The destruction of a pact should revert the relationship to its condition before the pact altered history, i.e. you're no longer the devil's child, you're Sam and Mary's like you were before. I would treat offspring status rather straightforward in this manner: if you are the child of a demon, you are offspring, and if you are not the child of a demon, you are not offspring. So if you go from being the child of a demon to not being the child of a demon, you go from...

  • Some splats have access to a special type of beats and experiences, earned under special circumstances, like mages' arcane experiences and Prometheans' vitriol. Some splats have extra situations under which they earn normal beats, like how the onset of Torment gives Prometheans a beat.

    But as for the core criteria for earning beats – resolving Conditions, satisfying Aspirations, suffering grievous lethal damage, pushing to dramatic failure and so on – the wording occasionally varies and goes into more or less detail, but I'm not aware that these are intended to separate the games....
