  • Either the same as the person that the Demon got the pact from, or they'd think that they had a new teacher if they weren't directly affiliated with the person the pact was made with. Pacts replace the person with the Cover in the minds of those who would be directly affected by it, but others who never directly interacted with the person won't be, even if the physical evidence changes (which it does)....

  • I think the problem with putting setting before the X/Y splats is that the setting isn’t ubiquitous across gamelines. For Demon, the ST will have different levels of God-Machine presence, or even what time period the game is set in. Most Demon games are going to have Destroyers, Guardians, Messengers and Psychopomps however, so it’s good to get those at or near the start of the book. Likewise, Changelings are going to have the six Seemings near the start because Changeling can happen anywhere, anywhen.

    I get where you’re coming from, but I honestly prefer having the character...

  • Could you use the Tether form power to extend the range of others, such as running current through it if you have Electric Jolt (or amplifying the damage of Electric Jolt by hooking yourself into an electric socket), or for triggering Urban Fluidity, or transfering yourself to the internet with Dataform?

  • Exploits are loud and costly, but they’re by no means something you should avoid taking. Exploits like Living Shadow, Four Minutes Ago or Decoy are great to have for either sneaking around or escaping pursuit. Ignoring Exploits altogether is ignoring a great deal of power and options, like ignoring an entire school of Embeds or merits.

    I also much go against the grain on the advice for gadgets; exploited gadgets shouldn’t be waved about openly, but if you manage to hide them in part of a larger mechanism (the clutch on a car, a card in a wallet, ect.) or are simply careful then...

    This thread has been inactive for a good while, but I wanted to post on here and comment at how cool it was reading another Demon story, particularly of a gadgeteer and how they work within an Unchained community. It’s different from the games I’m used to (though I can’t claim to have the greatest bredth of experience) and the ideas on hand are fun and engaging even from a second hand perspective. Thanks for posting these Eremite, as well as the gadget ideas. It was a very fun read.

    started a topic Disruptions To Darkness

    Disruptions To Darkness

    This is based on an idea I’ve been slow-cooking for a Demon concept while now, but I was wondering something. Should someone have a means of making so all darkness in an area instead illuminated it, removing shadows and darkness even for a very short period of time, just how disruptive would this be?

    Examples would be of a Demon using Living Shadow; if the dark in the area were eliminated, then the exploit would be forced to finish early.

  • You're supposed to extrapolate emotions for them, I believe; it looks like the ever dreaded Word Count has sidelined any emotions, merits, contracts or even some logistics on how these courts are supposed to work. I still can't wrap my head around how the Hong Kong courts are supposed to work as well as the Seasonal Courts in spite of lacking the Bargain other courts have....

  • It still is.

    “Harvesting the emotion favored by the changeling’s court grants an additional point of Glamour on a successful roll.”

  • I appreciate the question at the start has already been answered, but my two cents on Mage Arcadia and Changeling Arcadia being the same is this;

    Mages and Changelings have no innate knowledge of one another, and their books don’t reference one another in any significant way that I can find. Changeling Contracts and Mage Spells have no overlap in mechanics or even themes; Changelings don’t deal with the Supernal, and Mages don’t deal with the Wyrd, and neither side has any innate knowledge on the other. Even the Gentry, the beings who run Arcadia and thus would be the most likely...

  • ArcaneArts That is a seriously cool origin, and it goes a ways to elaborate on Wednesday's personality and the dangers therein. I'm presuming that his alternate Covers are further references to this game - highly approve of that. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  • KieranMullen I applaud you for your breakdown. Much more accurate than my own above.



    Is it possible for us to get a snippet on what those Interlocks and or Ciphers were like?...

  • Most likely to save on wordcount from having to explain what Incepts were, and to allow STs the ability to play around with what Incepts they’d have.



    A Materialized Angel is an Angel in its true form; an Angel in Cover has it Materialized, but hidden from the world as a normal human. Materialized still has an Angel suffer Essence Bleed unless it’s in Infrastructure, but Cover is technically Infrastructure itself minus any Essence/Aether, so an Angel can exist in Cover comfortably without losing Essence.

    It isn’t stated outright that Mortal Mask is...
