    Judges are idigam who coalesced and formed some of the first concepts of law.

    Fire hosts are totally a thing.

    GM's omnipresence through time and space is an increasingly sprawling attempt to keep itself from being destroyed that makes it increasingly more vulnerable and so must increasingly work to spread itself.

    Neither would realize it and it wouldn't matter if they did, but hunters of the Vigil are following lessons from the Uratha Sahenhar.

    There is no hard 'no' to anything. Everything that's supposedly impossible in Chronicles has a workaround....

  • Presumably it's because they're humans with some extra powers, and maintain all the weaknesses of normal humans. One of the signature mages had cancer, for instance, not usually an issue for vampires or Prometheans.

    Tariffs are just a little bit of it, mostly it's poor crops this past year in California and Mexico, where most of the world's avocados come from. That plus increased demand (it's a superfood!) means higher prices if places sell it at all.

    As someone who's only recently (the past few years) had and came to love guacamole I'm annoyed at the situation as well.

  • Only for a story where modern characters went back in time. It was Mage, but no one had Space and when they got split up in the beginning they screwed up big by not following any real logic when it came to reuniting. So that took a while to deal with while two settled in with a settlement (they had to work to help out as Wise) and the others sort of went the right direction by mistake (they were following signs of the General, which pointed to the East).

    Lets see. Big plots at the time, a werewolf had encountered an idigam and, unable to deal with it on their own, stalked and kidnapped...

  • If you had portals, like from the gun whose name I can't remember from Portal, and they were around the bottom of your shoes, outlining and surrounding the bottom, but one shoe was orange, the other was blue, would you be able to walk properly?

    I totally thought he was going to be a giant. Star Wars already established they're more willing to go beyond aliens being 'humans with funny head accessories' and I was disappointing that they went back to that for him.

  • Nah it was more about some perceived change to a group mentioned twice across editions.

    The 'problem' was even brought up here during first edition.



    This part is pretty much restated as is in the manuscript, with the fate of Ubar being the same. The Ki-En-Gir technically get mentioned again in one of the Deceived books but it's just an in-world recollection of 'they were different, we killed them.'...

  • From first edition's core, the first of two mentions of the Kir-En-Gir on p19.

    "It takes only a year to conquer the lands that will one day be called Libya and Nubia, but resistance is strong in Canaan. Tent-dwelling nomads scatter before Irem’s army, but warn those to whom they had long paid tribute. These Ki-En-Gir command the only professional soldiers the Iremites have seen besides themselves."

    They sure sound like they were a Canaanite enemy of Irem. Mesopotamia isn't even mentioned for 60 odd pages....

  • I'm really enjoying the Judges especially the hints at their origin. Makes a lot of sense. On the whole the setting and game seem a lot more fitting for Chronicles, while not losing the big things Mummy the Curse brought to the table.



    It says they're the legions of soldiers of Canaan, not a place....

  • I mean, then you should especially be learning about critical analysis. No movie is going to be above criticism but it would at least help you understand where some criticism is coming from.

    And yes, hate is popular, we have leaders gaining power because of it, and literal hate groups trying to hide their true stances because they know people will be more likely to reject their philosophies if they come out and be honest about it.

    As for differences between criticisms 30 years ago, you would still have people saying a movie is awful, they just wouldn't have a medium to...

  • They could have a million votes and it would still be less than .02 percent of people.

    You aren't obliged to agree with them. You aren't obliged to listen to them. You aren't forced to read anyone's blog entry or listen to anyone's video dissecting a movie. If you really have an issue with it, and you keep complaining about it, avoid it. But it wouldn't hurt to look into some criticism of literature and movies and be able to make informed decisions and analyses of things on your own....

    Basically being a skilled warrior doesn't mean you're a good leader, or at anything. Especially when you constantly let yourself be so led by your emotions that someone who hasn't seen you in a decade can troll you from solar systems away. While there's probably more to their corruption in books and stuff, the manipulation used to bring folks like Anakin to the dark side has been pretty shallow, as well.

  • Your issue seems to be more listening to the opinion of everyone and attaching the opinion to multitudes of people. And specifically taking certain opinions (notably those that call someone out as being an 'ist' of some sort). There's almost 8 billion people in the world and most of them don't have an opinion on Star Wars or Jurassic World.

  • Peddling addiction has never been so easy. Major drive to reduce smoking among kids? Addict them to something chemically similar but visibly different. It's banned because they explode in people's mouths or cause their lungs to break down? Hey guys we still sell cigarettes, just as good and never going to explode on you lets not get into lung problems.

  • Rank always applied with Greater Influence. In the Book of Spirits Greater Influence just allowed you to have more Influences but as it states on p142, 'No spirit may have a single Influence greater than its Rank, or more different kinds of Influences than its Rank.'

    In second edition this is simplified by not having a separate Numina for Greater Influence, and just offering a flat 'Spirits may reduce their number of Numina granted by Rank to increase Influence dots at a cost of one Numen per dot.' From p186 of the core....
