    replied to 2nd Edition - Rote Skill
    If the Storyteller is comfortable with you breaking form I don't see why not. HOWEVER, I suggest making the rote noteworthy if it uses an unorthodox skill. Like if you have a skill that brings good luck or augments your intelligence but uses Brawl so your Adamantine Arrow can use it? It is so unusual, so noteworthy, that it should stick around as a potential story hook


    See rotes requisite skill is chosen and programmed by the inventor of the rote, meaning in my example, there must have literally been an adamantine arrow master who wanted to get smarter by punching.

  • Obsessions can also change and escalate.

    If you succeed in making an Obession "solved" because the object of your Obsession is no longer a mystery, you just go to the next obsession, such as perhaps magaths in general or Obsessing over changing how Essence flows or becoming obsessed with the Underworle or Obsessed with reforming ALL death spirits you can find. The lower or higher the wisdom at the time of change might be a good inspiration for what kind of new, bigger badder obsession to have!

  • The idea is take spellfactor penalties until you are like near zero or even negative, and hope the cabalmates will grant enough successes on their rolls to boost your main dice to a reasonable amount.

    Its meant, I think, to be a mechanic for *very* dramatic circumstances, such as preventing a cataclysm or stopping a rank 5 monster. Its great when you need to take dire odds to "doable but cross your fingers".

    It can also be great for fishing for exceptional successes and covering your bases.

  • Unless your ST uses reincarnation in their setting. I don't recollect the games *forbidding* it at least, and one of the fictions features a mage getting a new soul and being cautioned to watch out for weird side effects from the foreign soul.

    So I'd say that a soul without a host still has the goetia in it but it might maybe rot over time? If not certainly stagnate, or perhaps just calcify, like the goetia regressing to their most core concepts and features.

    So, I'd say it doesn't so much reflect the mind as grows and is fertilized BY the mind. Cut off that, and the...

  • Archmages can actually get an actual audience, but its not a smart idea. The jerks can get up to like honorary rank 9. Even so, my player had to negotiate with Helions as proxies and got the best he got was Helios agreeing to not kill him on principle in exchange for a massive tithe....

  • Okay, so, bit of a really stupid question because I need this for a totally different game, but, I value the Werewolf priorities on the portrayal of Luna and Helios more than what might fit better for, uh, archmage, but I have a situation where a player's archmage wants to bring down the gauntlet for an entire country and is going to try and talk to Luna and Helios and negotiate so they don't retaliate.

    How should they react? My gut is that Luna will be willing to discuss it depending on her mood, and that Helios will flat out say "NO!" So yeah, simple question, maybe complicated...

    replied to Xp cost Dread Powers
    It's gotta be like 3 or 4xp, right? I think most powers run about that much, discounted if its appropriate for their "flavor" family faction etc. I'd say 4xp, then 3xp if its super fitting.
