  • Surely at least one of the false-flag VII operations is simply internal to one of the larger organized covenants? The Invictus's real Conspiracy of Silence, using a known bogeyman as cover to pursue political grudges and eliminate inconveniences to doing business? The Mother's Army done Danse Macabre style, a sinister igigi cult within the Circle?

    replied to Design choices for Mummy
    Just to chime in with a seconding, from someone who's not necessarily that hot on Mummy overall:

    This is not anything to worry about. It is super easy to run Mummy 2e ignoring literally all the timey-wimey stuff....

    replied to E10 Solar Charm (P.E.A.C.H.)
    It's not a Charm. There's an optional sidebar event in the infamous Locust War adventure chapter in Exalted: The Autochthonians wherein Lissome Avid Engineer, in desperation, somehow merges with a powerful geomantic nexus and shoots up to Essence 10. Probably due to a typo, a later reference to this event instead refers to her as Essence 16....

    Yeah, but wait until you see what the Essence 11 Charm does.

  • First edition rules assert that any autofire on a character in melee combat, even a short burst, automatically targets everyone in that melee combat, as if targeting multiple characters normally. It is possible that the second edition's autofire exception for firing-into-close-combat penalties was written not realizing that the autofire targeting rule had been dropped for space or somesuch; if autofire targets all parties in a close combat, then there's no need for a penalty to try to only shoot one party, because it is no longer an option.

    replied to Auras and Soul Loss?
    Mage: The Awakening First Edition lists among the aura signifiers that soulless mortals have an empty void where the aura should be. Whether this means a plain lack of aura (and anything else the aura could read), or a sort of tangible, visible "emptiness" is an exercise in interpretation.

    The former would make sense, though, given that being soulless drains the will and drive from a person, dimming their inner life; one can picture a person who had recently lost her soul having an aura that grows fainter and fainter over time, until it is barely there at all.

    replied to DIO
    Post-Eyes of Heaven? So does he have The World Over Heaven or just The World as we know it in Stardust Crusaders?

    I'd personally presume that supernatural beings in general can perceive Stands, in this case. At the very least, anybody who can see auras.

    DIO's basically going to try to forge his own power bloc in the Jyhad through whatever alliances prove most convenient, pledging lip service to the Camarilla, Sabbat, Anarchs, or his own claimed ideology based mostly just on how many older vampires and power players he's able to position himself to win over. The flesh...

    replied to What is a Shade?
    I think what you have a problem with here is not really the nature of ghosts in Chronicles of Darkness, but the nature of souls, since long before Mummy's shades were introduced. CofD games consistently characterize the soul as not being identical with a person (or, well, the parts of a person that aren't the body). You can remove the soul from a person and put a different person's soul in them. This will change them, but it won't be like replacing them with an entirely different person in their body. Their memories are the same, their long-term emotional attachments. The soul is more like a living...

    replied to What is a Shade?
    Explicit canon:
    Souls don't become ghosts. Ghosts are left behind by things that die (sometimes even when they die incompletely or for only a moment – Geist 2e introduces the ghosts of lost body parts and ghosts left by near-death experiences while the original person still lives). Dying is when the soul moves on from the body, but the ghost is not the soul.

    Extrapolation/theory:
    Dreams of Avarice and Mummy 2e seem together to strongly suggest, but not explicitly assert, that all souls progress to Duat and that the pilgrimage of shades accomplishes this in some way. Souls...
