  • Very unlikely to happen, but one I thought I'd ask;

    Say a player is doing an extended action requiring around 10 successes. They roll 3 for the first roll, and then get an exceptional success with 6 successes (totaling to 9). They opt to take the option that allows them to reduce the number of successes required by the number they rolled, meaning they have succeeded the action. Does the additional successes (in this case, the 5 over) mean they end up with the action concluding with another exceptional success? Or does it just count for the one roll?

    It's 1 am as I write...

  • To add to the question above, does Meditation grant any benefits for supernatural creatures, who don't suffer the typical integrity breaks?

  • Dangit, and I was actually pretty happy to find this game on the shelf of a gaming and collectables store I've seen around. Now that I've read some more (after I bought it to boot), I'm not nearly so much. Probably paid far more than I should have for the book, though given it's a hardcover I shouldn't be too surprised.

    Eh, I'll chock it to a learning experience or something. Probably won't get the chance to play the game, but...eh. Shoulda done more research.

    You know GibberingEloquence, that gives me an idea. Technically speaking, you could do the same with Living Installation, if you near-field it - it normally allows you to make living beings into the hosts for gadgets, but what if you made it so it gave the installed item life?

    High of Birth could too...though that may be more for making something it is used on have life, or always have life, provided it stays in contact? Or perhaps it fuses in...dangit now I've got Herbie stuck on my brain. XD

    Off topic, but does anyone know why the Demon: The Descent storyteller screen doesn't have more than the generic rolls? Last I checked, it didn't have references for cover, or other, integral bits of a Demon's makeup that a storyteller would want to keep track of.

    So, here's an idea: what exploits/embeds would you guys use to give a gadget life/will of its own, if not an extension of the user's? Animate is a pretty obvious contender, but I think Terrible Avatar could work too. Decoy (from Interface) could also work.

  • I love that phrase, "sledgehammer socials". Entirely appropriate for Lorelei, and her greatest weapon, but still hilarious.

    Great advert, wrong thread for it;

    The thread you want is here, on the Conventions, Gatherings and Online Play area. It's where I found a couple of GMs, both very good, though it's by no means guaranteed you'll find a game: http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/g...and-gatherings

    Best of luck.

    Can you Reverse Engineer a One-Shot?

    This is something I asked in another thread, but can you reverse engineer a One-Shot? Flowers Of Hell brings the issue up, and goes both ways about it - there are specifically penalties for reverse engineering them on page 144, specifically "If the gadget is a one-shot or a knock-off, each roll suffers a –2 penalty." and even states "One-shots with Exploited effects do not cause as disastrous effects, but do release aetheric energies that might draw the attention of agents of the God-Machine at the Storyteller’s discretion.".

    However, on page 149 it says "Due...
