    I'm mixed on the flavor of a good foghorn-very piney clashing with the sharpness of a ginger beer-but I gotta say, I do recommend it as an experience.

    One and third shot of gin
    a third of a shot of lime
    and the rest of short cup of ginger beer, in case you were wondering.

    No replacement for a good Kentucky Mule for the oncoming summer, but it's definitely an interesting drink to try and talk about.

  • I didn't write it, though the writer definitely agreed with my point, so I will clarify my point after I do my morning routine.

    One thing I wanna get out now as a side note is that, due to a lot of the baggage around these threads, I've been trying to avoid getting involved so as to avoid stressing a tense situation even more-I found out about my invocation through a friend. You didn't know that, so no worries, but some of my annoyance comes from that. So, you know. Here's the heads up to everyone about that....

    Fair enough, so long as we remember that I started off my set of comments with establishing what is my personal tastes and peeves in kind. The street can go both ways.

    Although there is still the matter of vocab usage, but whatever....

    I think a more accurate version of what you're trying to say is that magic has no ties to the laws of nature as far we have proven or strongly rely on our current understanding of rather than saying magic that is unscientific or not technology, since the latter two are technically impossible but the former is totally viable in the world of colliding metaphysics that is the Chronicles world. EDIT: Or, in fact, in any other setting that has magic in it.

    Which is also very distinct from a non-repeatable, nigh-on/unanticpatory set of causes-and-effects.

    *looks at you*

    *looks at Yantras, Praxes and Rotes, the mere fact that one can plan out their spells in response to their environments at all, and more*

    *look back at you*

    Sure....

    Quick rant as relates to my tastes and understandings:

    The rest of what you describe is not in accordance to the bolded, nor should it, because it describes magic as a non-repeatable affair, neither a thing you can replicate or anticipate and therefore not a thing you can take advantage of-magic just happens when it will. Now that's cool if magic is a setting thing rather than a character thing, and in fact I'd be down for a game on that premise-but if you're in a game where you can use magic, a character has to at least figure out how it should be able to be invoked in even your...

    Relevant quotes to what I was talking about:

    God-Machine and Mage





    Faerie and Mage






    There's more, but I don't wanna bog down the thread or distract more from the central conflict. Still, thought some context would be appreciated....

    Worth mentioning that, while I don't know if this is the case or not, had there not been the problem of introducing Goetia in this game and angels could fill in their usual spot in the triad of Ephemeral Beings, there probably would have been more mention of the G-M's fuckery. But since Goetia and Supernal/Abyssal beings really needed in, angels weren't covered, and it probably made more sense to keep the focus in-house from there.

    Like, again, Mage is stuffed book. They barely managed to get one Legacy in there, a lot of special rules got hyper condensed for Mage's particular enemies,...

    In text, it hasn't happened yet, but it has been answered because both sides are tired of the shit: the Arcadias aren't the same as far as canon is concerned. Fans can make the connection, but the plans for the books involve dropping the issue completely.

    This has been stated a couple of times on the forums since 2013....

    I think you missed the point. So let's have a quick rewind. Note that this is from how I understand it and does not reflect on Brookshaw's actual opinions or choices.

    Around the time of Mage development, this entire argument concerning the God-Machine was going on. At the time, with the introduction of the Second Edition rules alongside it, one of the big prevailing worries that the God-Machine had gone from a cool bit of niche lore to an all consuming cornerstone. It didn't help that the God-Machine got a mention in Blood and Smoke(Requiem Second now) under the VII section as a possible...

    I've done this fight enough times that not only do I not care to retread it, but I actually imagine you probably know my immediate counter-arguments.

    I did like This Is Hell, though, and likewise I'm pretty sure that conflict is almost older than dirt.

  • A Beast doesn't have much personal need to Justify themselves-we're talking about a group of folks who chose their monstrous nature after experiencing what they will do to their victims in a way that makes for a visceral comparison to them(remember that even if the dream horrors they commit to other people doesn't amount to more than a shock because, for them, it's a shock, for the Beast the harms and traumas they experience during the revelation of their Devouring is as real to them as anything we experience in the flesh since their existence is half-psychospiritual, and therefore is comparable...

    They were always going to be in there? David just hadn't shown them because y'all were familiar with them and wanted to show how the Freehold system could be used to do things other than that, particularly since prior to 2nd Edition there was literally no support for anyone trying to make a unique Freehold system on their own. But the Seasons were always transparently there....

    Well. Actually, surprisingly, it can. In fact, it's ability to be thus is a fairly large part of Changeling's makeup. I mean, not all games should not have a majority of not danger, not even within Changeling, but part of Changeling's strength relies on the non-dangery bits, such that you really could carry it on that.

    I mean, some of that depends on how you define danger I suppose, but the Chronicles of Darkness can be dark without danger in general....
