    I would buy that if I hadn't read direct comments from the developers that contradicted it. Problem is, I like following production processes as much as I can? So I have things like:



    I did mention that the last part I presented was a)fandom, and inherently( by now I hope with anyone familiar with my dialogue) b)wibbly and therefore unlikely.

    You want me to draw a hard line based on what I have, I don't fucking care what elements are at play, no, no supernatural can produce a Deviant because I have that line in the sand to work with, alongside the text we...

    It particularly strikes me as neat because I had a conversation yesterday regarding a different line about how a certain antagonist wasn't really all that good as a crossover antagonist, and so diving into Chapter 2 and realizing that versatility is a refreshing contrast.

    Deviants upset status quos, yo.

    EDIT: Also, I have a Beast character I want to play who, on learning about Deviants, basically would dedicate a small part of her cult to making them, and I love all the ways that goes wrong in my imagination....

    I assume they are talking about Genius's canon, which

    *twitch*

    ANYWAYS, such a thing exists within it's own sphere.

    As for Mad Science, it has representation within, but not limited to, Mage, Promethean, Demon, and now Deviant. Mad Science works better as a sub-trend throughout Chronicles than it's own concrete entity, to be honest-but admittedly, Deviant is one of the better manifestations of the spirit of Mad Science, as it goes....

    Pffffffffffffffffff

    Of course Genius would state they can make Prometheans without acknowledging the caveats presented in it's own material.

    Anyways, it depends on the margin of success you describe. I mentioned Angels, but by contrast, Seers don't exactly stress over how to make people do what they want. Mix those fuckers in with the Myrmidons, have a party, so long as it doesn't fuck the bottom line.

    EDIT: Anyways, I should make a note, since I pffed it-No, a Genius can't, not unless they aren't willing to employ Inspiration in the process. If they do,...

    There it is! Thanks.

    EDIT: unrelated question, why is this game making me wanting to play all the songs I used to listen to in high school. This is unnerving....

    The reason why a Deviant's soul cracks and doesn't become something else is because there are no higher powers at work in humanity to guide the transformation once that damage is done. Seers crack over open human souls to make Servitors all the time, and not one of them is a Deviant, as a minor example. It needs that lack of an anchor that humanity has to make a Deviant. If there are more solid metaphysical constants involved in the process, than likely they become b-splats or weirdnesses associated with that splat.

    Stepping away from the Watsonian for the Doylist, this has been openly...

    Gotta say, I have an appreciation for how organically you can slip a Devoted Deviant into the antagonists of other games as a way of diversifying them.*

    Theoretically that can be said of any of the splats(particularly Beast), of course, but as a point of comparison-If I'm running a game of non-crossover game of Geist but want to spice up the world by having elements of the other lines pop up once in a while(as I do all the time), I could add a werewolf or a changeling to an Eaters of the Dead or Tyrant Krewe, but I've got some things to answer there in order to get it a little more...

    And going beyond that, there's a lot of other magical girl anime and other such media that works well with the format(specifics in spoilers, and then the format overall)-

    Spoilers for Symphogear, Princess Tutu, Yuki Yuna is a Hero, DNAngel, Kill La Kill, Tokyo Mew Mew, and Sailor Nothing.

    EDIT: Double checking how to spoiler, section will be back soon.
    Symphogear Season 1 an, to a lesser extent, 2 features body horror that revolves around how the use of the magical girl artifact will invariably kill the lead character, and in other instances features how innocent

    Somehow that got me excited for Lucifuge Deviants.

    partly becasue a reread of the Conspiracies regarding this game made it clear how plausible that is....

    Yeah. Divergence isn't an exact science, or even occultic process. Not surprising for something that is sometimes not even a desirable outcome and other times exactly the thing you want to have happen.

    It depends on what you're going for, but overall, yes.

    I feel like if you're gonna do Changeling, it's gotta be Seeming to Clade.

    That can get fairly expensive.

    Because I can, Beast/Deviant Stereotypes:

    Anakim: Meteorites break up, too.
    Eshamki: You could disappear like a shadow? Not if we kill the lights.
    Makara: I thought I was drowning too. Turns out I was just learning to swim.
    Namtaru: It's not fear, love, it's jealousy. Unless you want it to be fear, of course.
    Ugallu: I do adore someone who wears hearts on their sleeves. Yours, theirs, not much difference.
    Inguma: Let me show you what went wrong.
    Talassi: Your body is a cage? What do you put in it, then?

    Autourgics: You got it together....

    I find my mind dissecting Symphogear and Honkai Impact 3rd regarding this.

    Interesting.

    Completely unaimed, I'm just blown away by how much people seem to think this is a lot of work and highly confining and restrictive and such. It's not like anyone has to go and become a monk, or drag a piano across a city with a rope, or apply fire to their crotch for ten seconds.

    Like, it's a form. Your players are going to be filling out one anyways. They fill it out, you read it.

    Like, it's world building. You're already building a setting anyways.

    It's also not like you suddenly have to only play Puppies and Pawprints. A large number of the people who...
