  • Her geist is bound up in her spiritual biology. Her Haunts may manifest as projecting her geist in some cases, like a use of the Rage that manifests as her geist flying out and clawing at people, but that's an expression of the Haunt and not an intrinsic ability of the geist.

    If her geist is unleashed, then it can punch the ghosts. An unleashed geist behaves very similarly to just a powerful ghost hovering around you.

  • Stupid Loserman
    replied to Vampires and Spirits?
    It's not something vampires are especially adept at. The Khaibit have a couple Devotions which allow them to perceive and strike ephemeral entities, including spirits. The Tenth Choir's sacrileges, in Dark Eras 2, work to hunt and devour "angels and devils," but this is defined broadly and includes "appropriately biblical spirits." A while back I wrote a homebrew clan whose intent was to provide for more interaction between vampires and ephemeral entities, the Shiryo, which can be found in this homebrew supplement. Their clan Discipline was designed in part to be an alternate...

  • No. The passage in the book you quote is not saying that a Pack Rite's benefits spread across all pack members no matter where they are in the world. It's saying that non-Uratha packmates (humans, Wolf-Blooded, any local weirdos) also benefit when they participate in a Pack Rite, unlike Wolf Rites, whose benefits are only conferred to Uratha participants.

    You could write a homebrew rite whose effects are conferred even to non-participants, as a weird exception case. But it'd be weird and you usually shouldn't, because Rites are established as being communal in nature. You don't sit...

  • It sounds like, rather than asking about individual mechanics, you're trying to find out whether it's possible to do a specific thing (supernaturally keep somebody prisoner somehow). Why don't you just tell us what it is you're trying to accomplish and we can answer that directly?...

  • Picture being helplessly, head-over-heels smitten with someone. They're amazing and you can't stop thinking about them, even if you're already in a committed relationship, even if you hate that you can't get them out of your head.

    That's what the blood bond does to you. No more and no less.

    If somebody you loved tied you up in the basement and told you to sit there and don't bother her would you do it?

  • Under normal conditions, Tessie is right: it is not useful to view Twilight Form as a Manifestation power the way other Manifestations are, as it's simply describing the ephemeral condition.

    In the specific case of your homebrew, look at what you're actually doing narratively and design for that. Gradually losing Manifestations such as Possess, Fetter, and Image means your theme is of ephemeral entities gradually becoming isolated and unable to interact with the world around them. Anything that makes the entity more able to interact with the material realm, then, is inappropriate....

  • Point, or dot?

    Losing your last permanent dot of Willpower might be catastrophic for your mental health.

    Spending your last point of temporary Willpower means you're tired out emotionally. You've been through the ringer and really need a break, but not to the point that there are any mechanical complications that result. The consequence for running out of Willpower is that you don't have any more Willpower to spend.

  • Changeling: the Lost, in both editions I believe (certainly in first edition), is already explicitly this, suggesting that many alien abduction stories where the abductee undergoes strange surgeries and is then returned to Earth altered by the experience, unable to clearly remember exactly what transpired on the ship, are simply the modern incarnation of the tales of Fair Folk spiriting people away to Faerieland and returning them changed. The chirurgeon kith is presented as having been reshaped to resemble a "grey" alien.

    The alien aesthetic is fine and certainly in keeping...

  • Normal people can perform exorcisms in the Chronicles of Darkness. If anything, supernatural splats are less likely to be able to perform them; they harness the human soul, which not all supernaturals have. Ignore that part, I was thinking of abjurations (which normal people can also perform, though they may not realize it is an option). totalgit is right, exorcisms in Chronicles of Darkness, at least as described in the corebook, are simply learning how to move things around and strip the conditions necessary for an ephemeral entity to manifest.

  • Beasts don't actually create Heroes, to my understanding (though the original draft of the book was different, and some references snuck into supplements being worked on early in publication). Heroes are naturally occurring. Beasts attract Heroes; preexisting Heroes notice the disturbance in the Dream and come investigating.

    Many Heroes are lone wolves without much of a shared mythology, though, so it's conceivable that a Hero might believe, at least for awhile, that he's calling new Heroes to the vocation and not just pounding in the ears of every Hero in the region.

  • This is a superficial response just at first glance at what clearly had a lot of work put into it, and I'm going to try to remember to come back and give this the full read it clearly deserves.

    But the immediate observation I have is: ironically, you might want to rename it, perhaps to the "Unnamed" or somesuch. "Nameless" is a term which is already used across Mummy in several places, in the context of apotheosis and of the various Iremite gods, to mean something very different from what ails these Ren-damaged immortals: beings who own their own true name and...
