  • Ok, so I went back and reread the Heroic Lair, post not sure how I forgot, since I found the powers to be terrifying from a regular human perspective. You might not have this fully planned yet, but would spending Satiety be the primary method for activating Wayfinding and Boons, or is the Satiety expenditure more like forcing something that could happen naturally?

  • Hey, this cleared up fast. Thanks Mods!

    I know Harry is my go to example of a Low Wisdom Mage, and why Wisdom isn’t based on conventional Morality.

    I think the Satiety Expenditure options are all good, with the possible exceptions of Boons, and Wayfinding. Are those references to a previous work, or is that part of the Heroic template I’m not remembering?...

  • Ever read Ketch's Guide to Fetches? Has a bunch of Fetch archetypes that could go into a social group. I just kind of found it one day, don't know if it's stuff from 1e, or someone's blog, but it may be useful.

    As for what I see on there...What about those who want to become "Real", like Promethean? Would that count as a Prodigal?...

    To try better explain it, I understand, Fate is the manipulation of consequence. When Fate is present, it strongly affects things toward a particular outcome. It really doesn't matter what Arthur does beforehand, he will eventually draw the sword from the stone. He could not have done anything else, not because he is unable to make the decision to not pick up sword but circumstances will mean that trying to drawing the sword will always happen. Camelot will always be great and glorious until it isn't because the outcome is effectively already been decided. When all of your Fate is directed to...

    Unlike the other examples, you are playing with Fate themes. It doesn't matter what they want or intend to do anymore, they have ceased being important people whose choices matter, except to be a burden to someone greater than them. If they do contently obey the Seers, nothing has changed from when they don't. They will fulfill their role now, no matter what they do. Why put in the effort of providing comfort to tools if they will do what you want no matter how you treat them?

    Edit: I don't know, it makes sense to me. It's basically my insecurities regarding free will made manifest....

    Horror personal horror tends to not be so horrible from on high. My best advice would be to make it personal. Make them frighteningly aware of how they've become black holes of human effort. People tend to like those that help them, and it hurts to know that those you care about would absolutely be better off if they didn't put the time and effort into you. Have them run away, as far as they can before they fall apart, only to find that through an incredible chain of unlikely coincidence, they managed to make things even worse than before. Have them shout and scream, and do anything they can to...

  • Elpis smiles slightly, enjoying the cozy feeling and interesting aesthetics of Santiago's and Cloudchaser's home, and begins to head over to the mug and kettle.

    "Quite true, though I seem to hear neokoros more often. I have been told that I must pursue Gnosis to make myself ready for further steps. In the meantime, I have been working on my studies in Soriology, particularly around the effects, and manifestations of the Awakened Nimbus. It's fascinating to see how one's personality, actions, Wisdom, and connection to the Supernal all manifest themselves in the world."...

  • Is anyone else excited for next year when the Mouse becomes public domain? I wonder if we will get another extension on copyright?

    The duality of humanity, indeed. Personally, I like their concept. If there is any game where their themes can be explored well, it’s mage. After all, what separates them from children, and the elderly? Is passing them off to people who want to be caretakers really a moral choice? Aren’t we all at the end of the day parasites, that survive off the destruction of other life? Could Life itself be considered parasitical, by speeding up entropy, and slightly speeding up the eventual Heat Death of the Universe? All very interesting questions. I would note though if these Millstones appeared in...

  • Oh, I’m not complaining. It’s rare a voice catches my attention like that though. Like, wow ok, I’m paying attention now. I’ve never played god of war, so I was previously unaware of how rich that voice was. It’s a good voice for a Hierarch. Also that conversation in that clip is adorable.

  • Elpis hadn't expected to be spoken to out here, much less been invited inside. It takes them a moment to recover from their shock.

    "Ah, thank you. I will come inside in a moment"

    Elpis briefly wonders if they made the right choice, before walking toward the front door.

  • Well, that’s a voice. This where Elpis’ socialization habits will work heavily against them, as they probably only have had formal interactions with Santiago, like being introduced as Pandora’s apprentice. They tend to really not go out of they way to interact with people outside of their friend group, so unless Pandora has been interacting a lot with Santiago, Elpis probably has barely talked to him.

  • Well, I kept getting stuck on making the backstory for Elpis and Pandora, so I went ahead and typed up the first in-character thing. Hope it was decent, and if you have any criticisms, please feel free to share.

  • Did previous versions of the Mage 2e core rulebook have a +2 Reach option for Platonic Form and Eidolon to make the spells Lasting? My version of the core rulebook at least doesn't have those reach options, but the site I sometimes so check spell effects when I don't have access to the books has that reach listed.

  • Elpis

    Elpis walks up the drive, completely lost in their own thoughts. The frigid sea breeze suddenly bites hard against their face, breaking their self-absorption. Bracing away from the gust, Elpis' gaze falls on the lighthouse. The building, which had only a brief time ago had been something of comfort, now seemed imposing and ominous. The entire journey over to the sanctum, had been putting them on edge, and here it was, looming over them only a few meters away. Elpis quickly looks away to glance at the time on their phone. A sigh of exasperation leaves the air fogged for a moment,...

  • And I got my post flagged for spam. Here is a quote of it, so if y’all want to read it you can.



    Edit​​​​:​​ ​Oh yeah, the edit I wanted to do: Overly Sarcastic Productions’ take on the myth.
    Also some of my wording is weird. Basically the idea of the synchronization of the two myths is that one would purse Mystery despite the risks....

  • So I admit I’ve been working offa slightly different track. I asked myself who is the person who would name themselves, who would willingly take the metaphysical shape of Pandora? To name oneself someone is to give oneself definition, both positive and negative. To call oneself Sun Wukong, is to take in both the power and the flaws of the stone monkey as oneself. To make a good name, one must look inside oneself, and see what resonates. Over time, one will become more like the aspect they named themselves as. So, why Pandora? Well, there are two stories of Pandora I know of, the pop culture...

  • According to the player guide, they are Goetia that come from Beast's interpretation of the Anima Mundi, make their way to the Temenos, claim a piece of the transition beween Anima Mundi and Temenos which transforms them into a Horror proper, and then they seek out dreams for food. I guess technically stuff can use the bridges Horrors make to invade dreams alongside them.

    Rereading that section did bring up one detail though, Larval Horrors can access dreams before they change into a Horror proper. It's how the Insatiable are created. This is interesting since hypothetically they...
