    What doesn't people get with: rhetorical question?
    That was also a rhetorical question.

    Also the rhetorical question: is strength at all related to body size among vampires.

  • Well the thing with Masque/Dirge protection is that you actually protect yourself and accepting part of your true self with Dirge, you accept that you're partly a monster in need of humanity so to speak. While protecting your Masque is protecting a lie, a falsehood that you project against humanity, Masque is the predators face, the Beasts' face in the crowd, and you lie to yourself that that is all you are when protecting it, therefore a penalty. It's an interesting dichotomy of ones self....

  • Actually the number of Prometeans are really low, less then a hundred according to the 2ed core book.

  • It seems like you are having the same problem I also have at times. I call it "the Smallville Syndrome" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smallville ) in where really much is happening in a small place during a small time frame. This is at my table a double edged sword, in where it interferes with the suspension of disbelief, but we really like playing kinda like day-for-day-week-for-week types of games. The obvious answer is accept a broader suspension or use downtime more and maybe longer periods of them....

  • Here's a thing that works with my troupe at my table. We share a vision about disciplines being equated to age and power, not exp. By which i mean, we all share the idea it would be extremely rare and weird to find out that a neonate had a 5 dot discipline. a fourth dot in a discipline would be rare and on a character that's really narrow and specialized in that regard. So we don't have that problem with neonates, even PCs, running around with 4-5 in their disciplines, so that's a start.
    The other thing though is part of the actual game theme and design goals: Disciplines should be cheap....

  • I'm not sure you could lower an attribute to 0 in most instances, maybe there is some powers that allows that, but non I can think of. Like it's pretty obvious that with 0 in an attribute, that attribute would be "gone". In mage terms, i guess you might be able to do that with an Unmaking spell, but degrading the form is limited to a minimum of 1....

  • As fairly new to mage, only started getting into it with 2ed, I can agree that it's a game with a high bar to get into. I usually don't read the novels and stuff to the book, but I think that first, the fiction about the Interfector in the Core book is a great story. But it was the stories in the Fallen World Chronicle Anthology that actually got me starting to understand the game. I highly recommend the Dramitc failure podcast The Hanged Man, which is a pretty new one, only like four episodes yet about their MtA chronicle.

    Also, relax about the game structure. It's a pretty investigative...

  • It's your game, you do whatever you want with it
    But i can see this from two perspectives right on hand. The first would be story possibilities, in where you'd actually need to get on an adventure of sorts to heal that brain tumor for good or fix your severed legs. The other one is with dissonence and quiesence from sleepers when it comes to obvious magic. "Hey John, didn't you loose both your hands in that accident last week?"....

    replied to X-Ray Vision
    Not sure if it's enough x-ray radiation in the background for it to "illuminate" enough either. You could always change some of the light around to x-rays with the Control Light spell and watch it with a unveiling one. Just be careful with the Imago, you don't want to give someone an Extreme Enviroment Radiation Tilt ...

    Yes but in those regards it's pretty easy to understand why people think they are weak and the splats op against them.
    Well surely that is not the case in most cases. Ephemerals have quite large initiative modifiers and take mostly bashing damage....

    replied to Angels and the Combat Issue
    I'm actually curios, this topic about how weak ephemerals are in combat comes up again and again. How are they weak? How are people stated and in what way do people play to make ephemeral beings weak in combat? Rank 2-3 is enough to be able to TPK if not handled with extreme care.

    I am curios, could the people who think this tell me how they come to this conclusion?

    Edit: To be fair, this is from a non-mage/werewolf point of view, those guys cheat when it comes to these beings.

  • Murder rates is a start, but surely lacking in explaining things. Statistics about missing people and the like needs to come into the calculation as well. But even then you need to consider where the chronicle takes place. Sure there's no problem with the right feel of danger in the night in Honduras or the slums of São Paulo, but for most countires in the EU it's stretching it by plainly saying our world but with supernaturals. Surely it's a premise to the setting but take a look at one splat book and you realize that if you count for half of one splats killings/kidnappings/etc there's just...

  • You asked for examples of play and I provided. You are however begging the question, presuming to know reasoning behind the actions as if a white room scenario.
    I won't go into detail, just a quick summary.
    The dominate thing, was aimed at a friend to help murder another person, how is that not about loosing control? I presume the Beast is smart enough to know by instinct it can't hit for shit but he's buffed off physical-capped friend sure can beat someone.
    Well of course it works, even if the Condition as stated resolves by damage (which we kindly ignore at our table, but...
