  • LFG Demon: The Descent

    So, I appreciate that asking to play in a game isn’t the most dignified way to go about it, but I am hoping to find a Demon: The Descent game where I can play as a gadgeteer. Not just someone who makes gadgets, but someone who analyzes gadgets for other Demons or makes gadgets to request in exchange for tangible rewards - someone once put it as playing a Demon style Goblin Market. It’s a character I have wanted to play for a long while, but thus far I have had no luck in getting to play the gadgeteer aspect of the character to any real extent. Particular dream with this character is to build...

    Tokens have to be activated by either Glamour or using the Catch, the Catch being a curse in exchange for no Glamour. The writeup as is has no distinction between the two, which I believe is what Master Aquatosic was getting at - you’ve effectively got a Token with two Drawbacks. Making it so the Trodbike is easily stolen if you activate it without Glamour alleviates the issue....

    Indeed;

    The storyteller is aware of the issues with the player with the Analyst with the impossible memory, and is trying to give the player goals to work towards. The player simply isn't carrying them over.

    The storyteller had no problems with the indecive player. They recognised the issues the player would bring if they stayed, brought them up and said if the player wouldn't settle on a build then they would be removed. Player said No, and they were removed.

    The agency thing only really occurred because the storyteller didn't quite appreciate how detracting...

    They would be, since I am pulling them from experience from my latest game, as noted in the opening of the post....

    Going to revive this thread with a few bits from a game I’m in that is winding down. I should preface these points that this is from a game where the storyteller is new to Demon, and while they had a lot to learn they did well it.

    Make sure that players have an identity for their character well established and their goals set by the start. There is a player in my own game who clearly wants to be in the spotlight and doing things, and at one point early on commandeered the entire Agency to try and go to war with another Agency with conflicting goals, but they didn’t publicly establish...

  • They’re creating content that isn’t a rehash of 1e nor so divorced from its roots it’s not Changeling anymore. They’re creating the mechanics, the fluff, the lore and in general trying to make things open ended that people can use it without it being so singular that people can’t do new stuff with it. Development isn’t easy, and I’d prefer that it goes slower so they can do a more thorough job than blitzing through and making a really bad module that kills peoples’ interests in future works. I do agree with the sentiment of being happy that it is moving along though....

  • It’s part of the merit writeup - you can access the Mantle benefits of any court you get Court Goodwill in, but you will need Court Goodwill 3 to access Mantle 1 of that court. It also acts as a Status merit for that court and grants you a Mentor that teaches you the various aspects and contracts of that court. It’s a potent merit.

    Also, another question. What sorts of buildings aren’t affected by Hostile Takeover, outside of one owned/primarily resided in by a Changeling with Hostile Takeover?

  • With Court Goodwill, if the benefit is dependant on the number of Mantle dots you have, is that also reduced by the -2 for accessing that benefit to begin with, or does it go by how many dots of Court Goodwill you have?

    For an example, if Mandy the Winter Courtier has Court Goodwill: Spring at 3 dots, does Mandy get +3 (her Court Goodwill amount) to rolls to seduce someone or +1 (her Court Goodwill after the -2)?

    I will preface this with the statement that discussing Contracts that are your favourite or that you find cool is fine. It just doesn't match with the premise of the title and first post;...

    replied to Most powerful contract?
    The problem is that there is no hypothetical situation listed - it is just "what is the most powerful", no other qualifiers. Given each contract has its own uses but no universal cases we are effectively going into "my Contract beats yours because it is stronger"....
