  • I would say it is more like an extension of self, kind of like the Alibi embed. Whether it gains access to interlocks or not, I'm not sure, but I would er on the side of no. Interlocks are a potent and personal thing which, as far as I can tell, can't be replicated beyond something like Show Of Power. That really is up to you though....

  • Normal XP can be used for many things, whereas cover beats are not only just used for Cover, but they can be accrued via pacts fairly easily. The respective costs make Cover hard to boost passively and pacts require some effort, but expensive enough that a player with a glut of normal experience points can't easily boost a low Cover, and won't want to either....

  • Okay, so, it's no secret I love the idea of a Demon making a TARDIS in-game, and it's been enthused by the good Eremite that Lares were at the very least inspired by them (and that one would be the Doctor's TARDIS if he were a Demon).

    This leads to a pair of questions:

    Is infrastructure usually/capable of being bigger on the inside without that being its sole feature, outside of the use of boltholes? If yes;

    Are Lares bigger on the inside? Or are they limited to the natural structure/mass/dimensions that an otherwise mundane building would have?

  • Those are some fair ideas. I'm not entirely sure how that would work if multiple gadgets were made, or if used as currency to procure other services/resources though. Seems like it could get very...book-keepy. Still, pretty good way to make them viable without allowing a Demon to simply spend scene after scene after scene just making the silly things.



    Precision Engineering a Lambda would be something of a benchmark for how potent a Demon is, wouldn't it? Preferably it would be done with Good Time Management, as well as a workshop to speed up the time (and maybe with...

  • It's a shame that Gawain's player needs to sacrifice playing in this game. I hope that things are and continue to be going well for them, and that they get some downtime in their future...though sex breakfast may require someone else to take the mantle of Greatest Chef Ever.

    Actually, it does make some sense for Gawain to move elsewhere, however (I don't say 'move on', because that sounds remarkably close to his motley being a phase). By my understanding, those of Dawn tend to wander from freehold to freehold, and tend to be seen as good omens for it. Of course, Gawain going elsewhere...

  • Another gadget question; if you precision engineer a gadget, it is effectively considered overclocked. Does that mean that if you precision engineer a lambda, you suffer three points of lethal damage and gained the surveyed condition every time you use it? Or is precision engineering's benefits just similar to overclocking, not actually doing so?

    Subsequently, can you overclock a precision engineereed gadget?

  • This is giving me so many ideas for another starting character...that is, Analyst that goes loud, crosses Ephemeral Cover with Demon Car.

    Now they're John Doe (they got a soul pact) and the ring's primary mode of transit.

  • One reason I feel a Demon shouldn't require a dot of experience, outside of the aforementioned issue of paying for only a chance of something limited in quantity working, is that it also runs in line with how gadget creation goes. To make a gadget, a Demon needs to spend a dot of willpower to cement it into the world...but a gadget can exist without it, though it simply fades by the end of the scene and falls apart. One-Shots, meanwhile, are gadgets that are designed to only work once; they're not designed to take the rigors of use and aether, and thus don't require being cemented into the world....

  • Here's a question: can you, or can you not, reverse engineer a One-Shot? Flowers Of Hell 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 "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 to their fragile and temporary nature, a demon can’t...
