  • Another bit of thread necromancy, but I would rebalance the effects of Embeds and Exploits, in particular their dramatic failure effects. I appreciate that deliberately upgrading a failure to a dramatic failure to get a beat is always going to be a bit of a carrot and stick affair, but most of the dramatic failure effects on Embeds and Exploits feel more like an explicit punishment than a way to make things exciting. Exploits in particular have a bad tendency of giving effects I wouldn’t want to live with on top of being very costly to invoke in the first place (either requiring a payment of...

  • Probably, but you may find the items are sympathetic for Strix possession since... well, it’s of them.

    Alternatively it works and there are no issues from it since it is a weapon bound to your service, not theirs. It may even be more potent than normal, or alive... or even a legitimate way to make a Token dark sword with hunger, or a particularly dangerous Eldritch Entitlement. There are interesting things to do with it.

    Dumb question, probably the wrong spot for it... but I was writing up a custom Entitlement’s heraldry token and I noticed all the sample ones don’t have Catches like tokens. They have Catches like contracts - each of them denote an action the character takes in order to not pay the glamour cost of the heraldry token, but tokens generally have a curse for you for not paying. Tokens have consequences for free usage, contracts have workarounds.

    Basically, am I misreading things? Do heraldry tokens work differently like that intentionally, or was this an oversight?

    Edit:...

  • Considering that recovering as an Empty requires a lot of high success hedgespinning and oneiromancy, rolls that require a lot of willpower and or glamour... how does one recover those resources if their attempts fail? It’s not like you can literally sleep on it until you have the willpower back.

  • Another petty note here, but if/when Demon gets a second edition I would hope for a number of exploits to get a rework, or at least corrected. Chief among them is Four Minutes Ago, because as per RAW a character can Go Loud, wreck as much havoc as they can, but use Four Minutes Ago to completely avoid any and all consequences even as things happen around them.

    Another is Reality Enforcement, if only because it’s extremely vague on how it works and its scope. What are the limits on what it affects? Gadgets, cryptids and boltholes logically follow under its influence, but it’s not...
