    replied to Naval combat
    I run a game set in the West: from An-Teng all the way to Fajad (Gem is next, with a big stop in Coral). One player is a Sail Supernal, the others are not sailors, just travellers on the ship with the Captain.

    The ship combat section is fun! Its a lot of positioning and then pulling off manuevers- basically withering and decisive gambits but simpler. The Sorcerers in the party have used sorcery to attack the enemy ships, the Athlete Zenith made a crazy leap to start cutting down enemy on their flagship before boarding range.

    Just a tip- use hazards! My Captain Sailor...

  • Sort of. I made a 2e Night Caste Assassin Luchador Batman. He was maxed in Stealth and Solar Hero Style, with a copious amount of Athletics and a little Medicine to cover his backstory and his cover as a wandering healer.

    There's a mission in Tenchu Z called "Slay Dog Straying", where you have to assassinate a bunch of Ronin bandits in their hideout. Sometime before making the character I saw the Kurosawa movie "Stray Dog", and it fit the character as a Resources 0 day laborer who takes it upon himself to assassinate a scion of a Great House for his wicked crimes....

    No Training Times. I just don't want to juggle that around the frankly arbitrary time of going from island to island in the West. I understand the idea of "time training in the mountains" and the whole vibe of it, but I just want to leave all that as fluff to player discretion....

  • I dont have the book on me now, but Fajad does not adhere to the Immaculate Truth. They worship the gods in their own way, and the gods are like Judges of old, kinda. There's a picture of one thats looks Sphinxlike to me...

    How common are Beastmen in the West?

    I'm running a game in the West, island hopping and traveling far. We've been from small islands to Bluehaven, An-Teng, Wu Jian and now Fajad. I went back to read about Fajad to prepare for next weeks game and I realized I had forgot to make their Sphinx-God-Cleric-Monsters things a part of the city (It's cool though- one of the players has a 3 dot familiar and I made it the center of attention for the session, calling it the "God-Beast"). So when next session starts and the players go to the Needle (sorcerer's tower) I will intro them to the Cleric Monsters and explain they werent out...

    Neat. Thanks guys! I only remember reading about it on Tvtropes. I didn't start playing until 2nd Ed was wrapped up and I never went through all the books. I should probably download the older stuff and do a Lore Deep Dive....

    At last, my small bit of obscura is useful!

    There once a group of Rogue Primordials who didn't align with the Yozi/Neverborn who got jealous of the success of Creation. They didn't take the offer to help pitch in an make it when the OG crew were going around soliciting help. So they decided to make their own Creation and tried to bring it to Real Creation and it was shot down but the Godshrike (iirc) which either obliterated it or sent it back into the Deep Wyld....

    Mask of Winters, First and Forsaken Lion, Bodhisattva Annoited By Dark Waters, and Bishop of the Chaceldony Thurible were a Circle of Twilight, Dawn, Eclipse, and Zenith respectively.

    I don't know which Deathlord fits "Night" very well ywt though. Once I do it will be canon in my game and part of the Metaplot.

    My players have managed to piss off 3 in only 10 sessions. A new record!

    Cutting Edge is broken OP. 1m for 3 soak negated, every attack? And Speed of Light is the most efficient JB booster in the game at 1m per 1 success.

    Razor of the Sun is ok enough, Overwhelm *ISNT a terribly op mechanic especially for Single Pointers. You didnt include the text of Edge of Morning Sunlight....

    So we're all in agreement here- just using Style vs Style without branching out too far, Earth has a really bad match up against Air.

    Not very surprising. Air's strengths nullify or circumvent Stone's. Fragile Speedster vs Might Glacier....

    From experience I can tell you that having a 2 dot great cat or a 3 dot mega mon is worth quite a lot. It's one of the "greater than the sum of parts" combos. My circle's Sorcerer has a great cat that defends him while he builds sorcerous motes and actively defends him when he's crashed, and further dogpiles numerical advantage on solo targets when the Sorcerer enters Melee. And that ignores when it's not just killing mooks on it's own. And that's all before it turned into a 3 dot monstrosity- my specific example is that it unlocked the Water God powers of it's mother.Economically, it's...
