    Ya, that was the way I was leaning when it came up, but then wasn't really sure....

    Post Hypnotic Sugestion

    This came up recently and I can honestly say I wasn't sure. I know Mind 4 for subconscious mind control. And if you want to delay the effect it's Time 4 with Entropy 2 for a conditional trigger. But what about a triggered mental effect throuh suggestion? Could Mind 3 alone do this. Technically wouldn't the effect be taking place at the moment of casting and be tied to its triggering situation as part of the suggestion?

    Thoughts?

    Swords and things without moving parts would be Mater 3. Mater 4 will make you guns. Prime 2 won't make them permament but will allow you to make them out of thin air.

    10 successes over what is needed for the effect can make them permanent if your ST agrees but they could still be dispelled / countermagicked. Mater 5 will make them permanent objects of creation unaffected by such things.

    You could also consider any Bashing Damage source that begins by exceeding 10 as basically being Lethal as unsoaked it would relate to 3 Lethal and 4 Bashing anyway. Of couse I'd reduce it to just the lethal if doing so.

    Sort of why falling damage becomes lethal after 100 feet (way past what it should) and why getting hit by a speeding car is lethal instead of bashing as well

  • For what its worth our group has recently house ruled that 1 additional language is learned at Academics 1, 3 and 5 for free. The basis being that to graduate from high school on a college prep curriculum you need to take a foreign language, which is more or less the 1st dot of Academics. Then 4 and 6/8 year degrees are affording you others. For deciphering written languages we use Enigmas which of course could have a Language specialty if desired. For additional languages we use the Merit.

    It works out great and players don't feel like they are wasting points on something they...

    The only time you really need the skill to create something with magic is if the skill itself, or the process there in, is your focus for the effect.

    Of course you do need rudimentary knowledege of how things work and if you were to make a complex device that anyone can use you would then need the appropriate skills.

    Making giant bugs that spit poison and regenerate the swarm as they die off is si-fi enough that your imagination should suffice. Its not like you are introducing a new species that will continue on after you are done with them. Then all the knowledge...

  • Yeah, but I believe extra actions are 1 turn per success, been a bit since I read that part so I may be wrong.

    You would need Life 4 to lock the effect so its not really worth it. Life 3 could be required because depending where you read from it is required to effect living paterns with Correspondence 3. I would require it if there were other targets in the area you didn't want to effect, as in the enemy. If your targets where the only ones in the room I'd let it slide with the idea that your are affecting everyone present

  • M20 sorta merges duration now a days with the overall effect. I'd personaly rule 1 turn per success so 5 would be 5 turns, more than most combats.

  • 2 successes for the extra action +1 per person affected beyond the first + correspondence reqs for distance as per chart.

    Your ST might require Life 3 as well.

    Paradigm will not change the number of successes needed.

    Ideas for a Bata"a Street Bokor

    Hi, I'm getting ready to start a new character as the only player with a Bata'a street bokor. I've taken the Legend and Totem backgrounds at 3 with both centerd on Kalfu.

    My paradigm is Gods and Monsters with Haitian Vodou as practice and most focuses centered on rituals, so nothing really fast.

    I've chosen Primordial Essence and have a Monster Nature and Rebel Demeanor. Though not an outright murderer there is not a lot he's opposed to. And yeah, his life expectancy isn't real long. The story will be starting is Haiti and moving to Louisiana I'm told.

    Here's a few my group is fond of.

    Life 3. Deaden Pain Receptors: removes combat wound modifers.

    Life 2: Go Without: able to go without food, water and sleep for 24 hours (we require 1 point of quintessence as well)

    I really see this as trying to rationalize a way around the Life 5 requirement to create life. Now granted it is only creating copies of you but Life 4 would atleast be required to create complex organs and maintian actual life. Even then I'm not sure I'd allow it....

    I've not played Changling at all and have the 2nd edition book on order and have a couple question. My main intent is to use a lost freehold for a Mage storyline.

    1 Are the Autumn Realms just another name for earth or is it the Prenumbra, or something else entirely?

    2 Do the Fae themselves dream?

    3 Where can I find information on Nightmares and Nightmare Realms? Even the WODWIKI is not to helpfull here.


    Thanks.

    replied to Correspondence
    Is it common consensus to require Life to lock an Entropy 4 curse effect? We generaly don't require this since Entropy 4 is able to effect living patterns we except this as all that is required, even for locking the effect. Otherwise it's back to sphere bloat.

    We see Entropy as a sphere that allows manipulation of patterns (at the required rank) to not require an accompanying pattern sphere to effect said pattern. Since our group hasn't abused this it has never been a problem, though I see how it could....
