  • I figured I'd add a question just to keep things going.

    Suppose you use the Caul to substitute your Geist's Resistance for your Composure right before you use the Stillness key (with the Unlock Attribute of Composure) to unlock the Boneyard. Then you roll Synergy + Boneyard + Composure to mess with things within the Boneyard. By default, this uses your Sin-Eater's and not your Geist's Composure, but you can spend a charge from Caul to use your Geist's Composure, right?

  • Those don't have to be your only options. You could have the local Invictus run it as a way to sideline their less-sane members in a way that still lets them use their resources or abilities when necessary.



    I'd lean heavily on blood sorcery to keep the patients under control. You can't really fortify a prison against *all* of the crazy ways a vampire might try to escape especially if you need the inmates to interact with regular humans routinely.

    I'm imagining something like a ski resort. It takes a snowplow to leave, but you can stay in a luxury suite and...

  • You don't need to do a city-wide "Locate Vampire" spell. Vampires are social creatures, just hang out in good feeding locations until you find one, then follow them until they go to the weekly Lancea bible-study, then follow the leader of that until they go to the Prince's bimonthly status meeting. Detectives have spent decades unravelling the social networks of suspicious individuals with patience and elbow grease, there's no need to make things complicated. Plus, there are plenty of attack-spells that would be easier to cast on a few dozen individuals separately instead of all at once....

  • Sure, killing all of the Vampires or Beasts in a city is doable, but I wouldn't let players do that off-screen even if they were strong enough that it wasn't a challenge. If they literally tried to kill all of the X in the world, that seems like an Archmage-level task that should have Archmage-level challenges.

    As for NPCs, similar considerations apply. There are probably a few cities where they killed all of the vampires or whatever, but those creatures will return pretty quickly if they stop and there are always other things they could be doing. The fact that X exists in your story...

  • Yeah, that's probably the real killer for them. "A group of NPCs that are valuable allies, but constantly create problems that need to be cleaned up" is probably not that fun for anyone else even though they could be tweaked until they represent a viable group in-universe.

    Although from that perspective, "A group of NPCs that constantly create problems, but have too many political connections for you to just kill" might be viable as antagonists....

  • The way I was thinking about it the persistent form of their curse would be them needing to take credit if someone was talking about good things that came from their blessings, which would be annoying but mostly reasonable, while the severe form would require them to brag to an audience who was not aware. So, yes, the part where they take credit for what they helped others do is annoying, but the real problem is they might brag about something you wanted to keep secret.



    The Guardians are dicks, yes, but letting a family of Proximus get themselves killed seems a bit of...

  • Suppose the Silver Ladder has a Proximus family focused on using Fate/Mind to "inspire" people and whose curse is that they have to take credit for anything good that happens as the result of their inspiration. These people seem like they'd annoy the Guardians of the Veil by constantly telling people they inspired everything good the local Ladder does, but the family curse would prohibit any easy solution. How do you guys think the local Guardians or the local Ladders would end up dealing with this problem?

  • Yes, for example here's one for Princess the Hopeful. There was some talk about a fan-made supplement for Genius the Transgression, but I don't remember it going anywhere.
