  • I remember being surprised when I looked into this and realized that half of the time, moonrise happens during the day. Not such a huge deal in standard W:tF, but it kinda throws a wrench into things if you're writing something where everybody cares if the moon is up and not just the people who have moon based kuruth triggers.

    I eventually decided that the moon had to be up AND the sun had to be down for things to get hairy....

  • There is a wolfblooded tell that restores willpower upon engaging in vigorous physical contact. Mind mage sight can see when people spend willpower, so it is definitely an in-universe thing and not an abstraction.

  • Awesome song, awesome video, also inspiration. The 'human spider' form of the wolf is especially creepy in a way that I associate with CofD.

    Sorry for the thread necromancy....

  • I'm not saying that it has to be this way, but it would be kinda cool if Death healing was substantively different than Life healing. Like, if you are fraying/unraveling a wounds ability to contribute to your death, that might not mean that the wound seals up like it was never there; it could leave you with some pretty nasty scars.

    I'm sure you could approach healing with Death in a way that wouldn't have that side effect though. For example, in the 'Simple Question' thread, people are talking about going into twilight and then healing yourself while you are ephemeral.

    They're all different ages, right? It's a mother/maiden/crone deal.

  • Temporal Stutter actually hangs around in the area where you initially cast it on someone. If you crank the duration up to indefinite, the target will be "outside" of time until someone dispels it.

    Rereading how it is worded in the book makes me think that there is probably another post out there that explains that you aren't so much sending them into the future as removing them from the flow of time for...

    replied to Monster themed legacies
    Something that I've spent some time thinking about but never really gotten anywhere with is the idea of a nameless order/legacy that has developed an enshrined role in a non-mage supernatural society. For instance, maybe in a specific protectorate (like, in California, perhaps) it is traditional for packs to have an awakened advisor, whose presence grants the pack extra legitimacy in the eyes of that particular society....

    replied to Storing information in a spell
    This is totally relevant to things that I have been thinking about for the same character. It seems totally possible for you to do a spell that uploads whatever you are looking at to Instagram as an image, but what would that even look like? Where along the process of your brain interpreting the raw input from your eyes do you pull from? The 'resolution' of the eye isn't uniform across the whole field of view the way cameras are, so it should look pretty different from normal images. Video is even weirder since your eyes are constantly darting around the environment and instantly focusing on different...

    replied to Storing information in a spell
    Thanks for the responses.
    I've had a brainwave: can you use your signature nimbus to store the information? Your signature nimbus is automatically attached to any spells you cast, lingers even after the spell is gone, and you can spend a mana to deliberately mark something with your signature nimbus. I'm pretty sure that there was a preview that mentioned using spells to obscure/falsify your nimbus, so it seems reasonable that you could use prime to either encode the message using stenographic techniques or even by just replacing the nimbus with the information wholesale.

    The...

    Storing information in a spell

    Suppose you have a large store of information (like a hard drive) that you want to save, but for whatever reason you don't want to store it in some kind of physical medium. Could you cast a spell whose only purpose is to contain the information in question in order to allow for later retrieval? What arcana/practice would that be? What about including messages in otherwise normal spells that can be discovered by scrutinizing them?...
