    replied to Converting 1e NPCs to 2e
    I'd say threat it the same. I think 1e's arcana limits were in place to encourage certain kinds of behaviors that players usually don't have time to do or prepare for cuz like, how many mages would actually accumulate like 20+ dots before they were gnosis 5? So the arcana limits were simplified because it wasn't necessary, the arcana limits in 1e just never became relevant for most characters.

    The idea though is to encourage versatility and multiple arcana, I think, as opposed to powering up gnosis and 1 single arcana as much as possible. The prerequisites for Archmastery also did...

  • You could mix and match. Maybe do a different band that only exists in your campaign that did the same thing and are relevant somehow.

    In 1E there were a cabal whose album doubled as a grimoire. What if they did the samw thing as KISS as part of some ridiculous scheme (or just recklessness) or, the blood comic is now the only way to trace a link to a lost audio grimoire you need cuz the band vanished?

  • The sheer scale of production and the atmosphere of selling them probably sterilized the sympathy too.

    However, I'd reason a signed special edition of the first copies made would retain some connection. Anything done so that it "means something special" between owner and he bandmates, even if unintentional.

  • If it helps the discussion at all, I know Obfuscate does not work if the vampire is totally unexpected to be where they are, like a high security room or someones private study or somewhere after hours.

    Id have it be situational.

    Death sight would provoke a clash of wills against obfuscate, maybe, in a room of living people, but if you were with four vampires and one is using obfuscate, I'd reason death sight won't clash with obfuscate in that situation because the mage already sees 3 dead things so the fourth one using obfuscate doesn't stick out so bad.

    I havent read the whole thread yet but, could the hallow be protected by its own Resonance? Like a sort of weak obfuscation effect that works on Sleepers?

    Edit: sorry didnt realize this was an older thread

    If you make your own rote I think your nimbus is unaffected. If you use someone *elses* rote, some of their magical resonance will exist in the resulting spell. Even if they're dead for centuries!

    I put page number under creator. Its simply too useful not to "keep"

    But creator is for lore stuff. Since most of the time that isnt important and some rotes are ancient, when I do use "creator" I put the Order the creator came from, thus which order owns the rote. Usually that doesnt matter but if your Arrow cabalmate teaches you a Arrow rote (which theyre discouraged from), it mighr be useful to have that written down so that people recognize your rote with mage sight. It gets left in the resonance, disguising your nimbus, but, the creator of a rote can be learned...

    Any politics probably needs a combing through using the "rules to rule by" from the dictators handbook. A nice quick reference can be found by CPG Grey on youtube called "rules for rulers" and I use them to get the skeleton for ANY politics in my works. Meat comes next, but, it conveniently shows how and why rebels would fight each other despite being for the same cause! I highly recommend!
