    ​Salem is far more like a Defiler Caste Infernal. Evil, corrupting, and pulling the strings in the shadows....

    Since when has being dead ever stopped someone in comics, anime, or fantasy from doing something if the authors want it done? Roman Torchwick is a reference to Romeo Candlewick from Pinocchio, the one who tempts Pinocchio into disobedience. Getting eaten alive by a giant whale wasn't a death sentence there, so getting eaten by a hippogriff Grimm is an easily reversible narrative situation if the needs of the story demand it.

    Also, I totally spaced the ending of that scene.



    I doubt he'd have her rebuilt without emotions. I'd more expect him to insist on...

    Penny will be back. She's an android. The only question is if Jepetto or Roman puts her back together.

    replied to Creation, Undeath, and "Personhood"
    I think about ghosts like this: As long as there are new souls in the Well of Souls to keep the babies being born, the continued existence of ghosts is not necessarily a threat to the continued existence of Creation and its people. Therefore, ghosts are not inherently immoral just for existing and nothing needs to be done about ghosts as a state of existence.

    ​Of course, ghost psychology eventually diverges from mortal psychology due to the pretty drastic differences in their state of being. No need for sleep, food, water, and shelter, a difficulty in experiencing emotion, and an...

  • That's a point I hadn't considered.

  • To use the Craft rules to make a three dot Artifact, you need to be able to average 13.3 successes per roll. Without dice tricks to change the odds, the expected dice pool needed to pull that off consistently is 27 dice. Mortals max out at 11 dice for Craft, maybe 12 if you allow for exceptional tools. What are the odds of getting at least 13 successes on 12 dice six times in a row?

    ​Mortal sorcerers are limited in some areas. Doing things through Sorcery and Sorcerous Workings can be oddly easier than the "normal" way....

  • I thought mortals couldn't bind demons, only Exalts, as a result of the surrender oaths being to the Exalted and the Incarnae.

  • Well, Artifact 3 is pretty much beyond mortal skill. They just can't get enough dice.

    Thought: can a summoned elemental craft an artifact for you? Their skill can exceed mortal limits....

  • Had a thought on something that might work.
    Skull of Grave Command (Artifact 2)
    The skull of a necromancer, bloodstained and carved with profane symbols, this artifact allows the holder to compel obedience from the dead in exchange for the energy of life. By expending one lethal health level, the holder can raise a nearby corpse as a zombie which will obey the holder's commands until the next sunrise, at which time the power animating the corpse leaves and the body falls lifeless again. These zombies are no more intelligent or skilled than any other walking corpse and often need oversight...

  • It was essentially a voodoo doll of the city. He used it for a variety of different things, but I'm not sure you could call anything he used it for a property of the model itself. It was more like a means in further sorcerous projects than an artifact as Exalted uses them.



    ​Sounds more like a sorcerous project than an artifact.

    In more seriousness, it's a little hard to come up with something that a mortal sorcerer could use after creating it. Anything with an attunement cost is out, barring the Storyteller allowing you to attune something as a...

    started a topic Mortals can make artifacts, so what do they make?

    Mortals can make artifacts, so what do they make?

    Or at least mortal sorcerers can. They can technically manage the dice pools to craft two dot Artifacts, though it is extremely hard without dredging up at least a couple extra dice from custom made tools, sorcerous workings, or the like. However, there's only one two dot Artifact that is of any worth to someone without a mote pool - the Collar of Dawn's Cleansing - and only to the same degree as a hot bath would be.

    ​So, given the difficulty, what would a mortal sorcerer spend that much resources and that much effort, pushing the limits of mortal skill, to create that would...
