  • My placeholder rules for Lunars feature a lot of charms that confer the effects of Merits and Special Attacks they might have access to via animal forms. Some of these charms then allow the Lunar to reflexively shapeshift into an acquired form that shares this trait and/or offer an additional bonus if you're already in a form that lets you do what the charm does.

    I'm tired of selective realism especially on this subject matter. It is like it is because some men fixate solely on the forced sexual aspect and assume the woman's body is some kind of baby oven and frame their half-baked conclusions as 'practical' or 'logistics'....

  • The shit with Warhammer End Times and Age of Sigmar gave me so much patience for 3rd edition. At least 40k 8th edition was handled somewhat competently (i.e. mostly good but I can't call the Gathering Storm books well done + the rushed execution of them fed into the feeling that this was another End Times)....

    Single Step Serafina: Chosen of Journeys
    Ethnically of the Delathri people of Great Forks the only home Serafina knew growing up was the open road with the caravan folk as her extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins. Though they don't really remember her anymore thanks to Arcane Fate they still occasionally wonder what happened to the attractive young woman who always pulled her weight and danced at every special occasion before settling on the notion...

    replied to The five "exclusive" modes of Lunar combat
    One of the things I liked about Lunars in previous editions was (1e) Moonsilver Monkey Exercise and (2e) Relentless Lunar Fury where they had a significant but temporary boost to their competence that could deactivate on them mid-fight. The problem was that the combo system/charm type strongly encouraged them to power up at the start of the fight and end it before their charm timed out so the result was inelegant and made Lunars appear weak rather than having a reserve of strength that could rival the Solar Exalted.

    Also the way Moonsilver Monkey was described always made me imagine...

  • As for the original topic. I attribute the lull in activity to a lack of edition content.
    Though this doesn't necessarily reflect who is playing the game because I've long noticed that there's very few people on these forums who talk about their characters or their games, even attempts to get people talking about their characters often meets with reluctance. It's been that way for as long as I can recall.

  • What bugged me about ticks was that I had to stop and update the information constantly, even if a character isn't doing anything the combat is still drawing closer to their next action.

    Initiative only changes when they do something and while it has the potential to flow back and forth I’ve found the default is it going one way fast or two well matched parties being reluctant to concede the advantage....

  • Tool? An mIRC topic is just a bit of text at the top of the screen rather than part of the text.

    All we did and have been doing since the playtest is putting people's join battle rolls in ascending order, adding 3 (or whatever) to them and noting which round it is. Then when a character suffered withering damage subtracting it from the relevant total and adding it to the attacker's.

    The only real learning curve for us there was a tendency to forget additional Initiative like the (+1 for hitting, +5 for crashing etc) but that's where presenting the information as a...

    Do these logistics take into account that you're going to get stuck with a load of pregnant women as your prisoners that you need to feed and keep healthy?...

    That's not the only place where names have power though, just one of the most visible examples due to being a quirk of an entire PC splat. Names were the means a necromancer used to enslave the dead and how a Sidereal could steal your identity....

  • I find Initiative easier to track than Ticks. Online I mostly play on mIRC and that just requires me to put a scoreboard in the topic.

    Whatever the original intent was, Abyssals really warped the perceived significance of names.

    Well, for better or worse they weren't part of Glories of the Most High which had a huge impact on how people see the other patrons. A lot of people seem to have forgotten that the worthless drug addict interpretation of the Unconquered Sun that Coik is so fond of used to be the default....

    How active Gaia is really depends how you view the Elemental Dragons. If you've come to accept them as her souls or basically like the Kukla, then yeah Gaia's doing tons of stuff.

    Okay, I'm going to go back to this a moment.
    Two points.
    1. You're reading this backwards, Ma-Ha-Suchi is one of the founding members of the modern Silver Pact. The Silver Way is basically the foundation treaty that he agreed to. If you choose to interpret it as silverway.exe preventing him from killing the young Lunar who pissed him of course it's going to seem ridiculous.
    2. I really don't know what to say if you see a contradiction here, habitual killers who can understand that there'll be inconvenienced by lashing out at the person in front of them are all over fiction...

    I think they'll be more consciously aware of Ma-Ha-Suchi and was using him as an example but I'd be absolutely fucking amazed if we avoided the implication of really kill-happy elders in a splat of cannibalistic skinwalkers with rage as a keyword....

    The operative word here is think. The PCs decide if they're going to go and see Ma-Ha-Suchi or not and they're way more likely to go with 'not' if they only foresee this ending in a fight.

    I'm pro "ape should not kill ape" in the context of insane elders. If the PCs think Ma-Ha-Suchi might kill them for no reason he's a lot less usable to me.
