Re: Pattern Items and True Patterns?

On that last one, I'd suspect that the Adept would likely have a sense that something was off. Not because it isn't magical, but because if it was something so personal and had been with him or her for so long that it became a pattern item, then they likely are intimately familiar with it. A tiny sc...

Re: Lightbearers as a Path

That unfortunate misspelling sounds like the Illusionist's form of Astral Maw.

Re: Romance and Seduction

There should be a 'Wingman' knack with this Talent for whenever another character wants to help another using that talent. :D Honestly, I'm still not thrilled with the lack of structure around helping others or group tests, but that's a digression and already covered in another thread...which I mig...

Generic Thread Item Names

I mentioned this in my postmortem, but I thought I'd throw it out here for general consumption. The first key knowledge for a thread item is (almost) always the Name. In some cases, the thread item is actually a generic item pattern. I originally thought they all just had the same Name, but that nev...

[Thread Item] [Plot Device] Mordu's Lockbox

Not really meant for players, but it has enough stats to be a MacGuffin. An ornate scroll case, lined with orichalcum and jewels, Mordu's Lockbox always looks pristine and clean. It tends to reflect light such that it always shines. Mordu was a suspicious master Nethermancer. He had secrets he wante...

Re: Under the Stars Postmortem

Hanging Around in Axalalail postmortem And now for the session I planned for two sessions and two months ago. I'm just thankful a couple players were willing to go witness a hanging. Writing it was somewhat emotionally taxing. I suffered! So must they! The key is that Roth, soon to be Roth the Compa...

Re: Under the Stars Postmortem

Annabelle's Bad Day postmortem We had to wrap up the fight from the previous session. I hope the players got a sense that these were the plan-ahead type enemies rather than run-of-the-mill baddies. I mean, they had a secret trap door and escape tunnels! The latter was something I had to put together...

Re: Under the Stars Postmortem

A New Acquaintance postmortem It's been a couple months since this session, so apologies for the sparsity of commentary. However, I think it was roughly the one year mark of playing, so yay for that! Session 16, and the longest running campaign I've ever been in. Cool, cool. Anyway, I had far differ...

Re: Under the Stars

Okay, I finally got the latest summary up. And our next session is this Friday.

The Rolling Stones begin to mesh, but a couple of them witness something both sobering and enlightening.

Re: Question on raising Path's Rank

Pretty sure it's every rank, not tier. I'll have to look up a reference.
