  • There are going to be a lot of Clash of Wills rolls needed here because literally every time she uses a Numen or attacks one of you, there's a Clash. Rather than prompting each of you for a Clash roll, is it ok if I roll for you as part of my post like I did for Moonstone? If anyone does not like that idea, please let me know.

    Thorbes, I also rolled initiative for you just so I could know where you'd fit in before I have the ghosts/spirits take actions. If you don't like that, you can roll for yourself and we will replace my initiative roll for you.

  • Lynx
    You begin to chant in High Speech, channeling the power of the Supernal tongue to recite your Imago, but it feels so slow when these creatures are moving towards you.


    Moonstone
    You hope that Valentine would be pleased that you're being more careful with Paradox risks, because when your spell takes hold and you fight a reflex to double over from a sudden wave of pain, you think that it better be worth it to contain the threat rather than release it.

    Need you to roll Clash of Wills here for Ghost Shield. I assume that you use his Gnosis + Death pool

  • Character sheet looks good, thanks for updating! I do have a few thoughts for you:

    1) Resources: Your background says that Dr. Luck is pretty broke, but now you've added Resources 2, suggesting that he has some decent expendable income. So you could say that he's recently inherited some money, maybe had his first breakthrough with a book, or that lotto ticket he found actually won him some money. You also could then feasibly own a nicer car, an actual working cell phone, and so forth. But if you like the idea of him being a "starving artist", you could cut the Resources...

  • Oh, and FYI in case you don't remember: When you release a Paradox, every success on the Paradox roll adds a penalty to the spellcasting roll, so your spell roll will be at -3 penalty. I also get to apply reach to warp the spell.

  • FYI, remember that High Speech cannot be used as a reflexive Yantra. So if you want to use it on your spell, now that we are in initiative, your spell won't take effect until next turn.

    If you want, you can change your response now, including using different Yantras for that spell roll. Otherwise hang tight and it will take effect next turn....

  • Cool! One thing to remember, because your Gnosis will be 2 instead of 3, make sure to limit yourself to 2 Praxes and 1 Obsession. You also will need to add a bunch of Merits, since you had previously put all of those into Gnosis.

  • Wow, ok, so BurritoMage has apparently been banned due to inflammatory language here on the forums. So he's out.

    wtaylorjr2001 - You're next on the wait list. If you are still interested, you are welcome to join us again with Dr. Luck. Please go back and revise your character sheet to fit our modified character creation rules. You get Gnosis 2 for free, but it is capped at that level, and you get 5 additional XP to spend on whatever you want. Please let us know if you have questions or if you have changed your mind about playing.

  • Moonstone
    You create your spell Imago in such a way that it encompasses the computer and the space around it, like a net being thrown into the sea with hopes that it will ensnare its target, and your mind suddenly fills with knowledge about this friendly little ghost.

    The "mind" you reveal is more like a recording than a consciousness, much like a voicemail is to the spoken word, except that it seems capable of responding to outside stimuli. The ghostly child seeks to entertain itself by confusing you and hiding from you, but it has no malicious intent.

  • There are very significant changes between 1E and 2E, so if you want to play in the Mage 2E game, you would definitely need access to the book in some capacity to play.

    With PBP games, we do indeed use rolls, using online dice roll website that archive rolls so we can all see the results at any time. I use Orokos for CoD games because it allows for complex options related to rolling dice. You can also check out my IC thread for my other game, The Supernal Suburbia, in my signature line for examples of how this works....

  • A draft of my character sheet is up, still working on adding some details (including the backstory and Legacy info). Unfortunately I'm not sure I will have much time tonight to actually work on this like I thought I would, having some personal issues come up and I can't spend much time on the computer. Sorry guys.

  • Due to a lack of activity on their part in the past month and for not responding to PMs or posts, I have decided to remove Ambersand from the group and invite BurritoMage to the group from our waiting list!

    Burrito, please post a character concept here and start working on a character. We are using the standard rules for character creation with the following exceptions: start with Gnosis 2 for free (cannot start higher); use 5 bonus XP; and you can start with any number of items with item availability rating equal to your Resource merit in dots, and a select few items at Resources...

  • Hey, it's all good!

    Several of the players who originally signed up for this game have since not responded to me or apparently gone inactive. I'm going to start reaching out to people on the wait list to see if some of them are still interested. If we end up having an opening, I will reach out to you via PM. You're also more than welcome to subscribe to the OOC or IC threads for either of my games. The OOC thread for this game has moved to this thread instead. Feel free to check it out....

  • Ok, gotcha. So I could make 2 Brawl attacks in a row, then on my third turn cast a spell using two +1 Yantras for a total of +2 bonus?...

  • So each individual combat action can count as a distinct Yantra? Are you just able to save them until some point later in that combat until you're ready, or does it have to be immediately used on a spell right after the most recent combat action?

  • Can someone please clarify or explain how exactly the Adamant Hand merit works, preferably using examples? In particular, I'm confused on what it would look like with Athletics but an example using Brawl or Weaponry would be helpful too.

  • I am taking my point of view based on this description of Obsessions in the character creation section of the core book:

    "Obsessions are like long-term Aspirations, but grant Arcane Beats and Mana when you resolve and make major progress toward them."...

  • Also, I am going to officially adopt the house rule that if the ruling Arcanum for your Legacy is already one of your ruling Arcana, you get the optional Arcanum for your Legacy as a new ruling Arcanum.

  • Flinty - Thanks for the update, no worries.

    I finally have some down time this weekend and will be working a lot on my to-do list to get the game up and running, which includes making my own character, reviewing Legacy conversions, and reviewing character sheets.

    I had a few questions for you all. Just wanted to really make sure you are ok with me running my own character. My plan is to treat my PC using the same rules as all other characters, and I will be extra mindful of not meta-gaming. I just have spent over a year trying to find a Mage game to join as a player,...
