    But where is this information? I've always been unsatisfied with the detail in the Basic Compendium, but maybe I have somehow missed something...? A secret section that is only there if you BELIEVE?

    I'm looking through the copy of the book I've got and I can't seem to find the sections of history that you're referring to, or even any mention of these Chun fellows - it is disturbing, but perhaps I'm just having a brainfart.

    I think the true death of this word will actually be when people realize how easily it can be misunderstood/mispronounced verbally, and the consequences that might have. Something about roosters and jargon...

    From a gamist point of view, I can only advise doing things like raising your characteristics instead of, for instance, buying an extra rank in martial arts - it'd indeed be much more cost-effective to have an agility of 5, and perhaps a Perception or Will of 5 (to offset that DEMON a bit!), and make you more effective overall - though if this isn't a case of inexpert min/maxing, then by all means ignore it! Also personally as a GM I would have you buy anything containing even flecks of silver a…

    Alright, but I've already run into a problem: I can't seem to modify who can see things unless I'm an 'ascendant member'.

    Alright, I think I will set to work on that immediately. Do you have an account on OP, Scott? I'll add you ASAP, if that is the case.

    If I can weigh in, I'd like to agree for the most part with Sherbie. As a GM, my powergaming senses go off reading the initial proposal! It definitely does seem like the foul spirit is sort of a risky but powerful tool instead of a creature who is legitimately beyond your ken and eager to meddle in your world, cavorting about in your delicious mortalflesh, using your shell to suit its tastes. You seem to have to really, really abuse the power to actually risk having it conquer you - even though …

    That is not only a great idea, Sherbie, but also one that would be useful specifically to me, as I am dying to share the details of the game I'm planning.

    A change of plans!

    Danny - - Campaign Discussions

    Post

    Around a quarter of the way into planning out how this campaign might've begun and what I'd give them to create their characters with, I was struck with a very, very different idea, and this Saturday they made their incredibly bizarre, Heroic power-level zoics of a long ago age. I really would like to tell you guys all about it and the secrets I have in store for them, but they browse here as well, and I don't want to spoil it! So I have to ask: is there some way to hide either certain posts or …

    Yep. It took me a little while to make sure I was reading that correctly, too, but it does make a good deal of sense.

    This is really pretty good advice- the first session I ran this past Saturday, I simply charged the players with stealing something. First, the sorcerers tried it, and I decided to give them a nice little challenge. I threw in a lot of unexplained things for them to investigate, really played up the fact that the Dream is much bigger and magic is much more than they know, and on top of that tossed in a big sort of trap they could trigger if they wanted (its kind of unfair that I know how they wo…

    Dignitaries of the House

    Post

    I have a lot of plans brewing, and kind of want to take this game in several directions over time. I figured it'd be easiest to start them off as pretty well-rounded Sunborn so things aren't too mud-and-blood to start with, as it seems like the real cool stuff is in the fantastic here, not the mundane and gritty. I'd really like to thank you guys. I have a really good feeling about this, and value your help and support.

    Dignitaries of the House

    Some NPC's I've invented that occupy the same House as my PCs. I'd like to get a general opinion of them, and I'd like to invite everyone to look them over and make sure they all make sense and whatnot. I am, after all, pretty new to the setting. I'm also somewhat at a loss as to exactly where I should set these fellows geographically. Any help with that you'd like to offer I would also greatly appreciate. While typically very fair and even-tempered, the aryah of House Urvaj can be easily pertur…

    Yeah, thank you so much for your help. I've found those since I initially asked I jumped the gun trying to figure these things out in time to meet the demands of my soon-to-be-players.

    My problem was that I read all that, but wasn't sure what 'derived from' meant - I'm more used to mathematical examples, or at least very specific terms. For instance, I wasn't sure if it meant they became equal to, or there was some hidden formula I wasn't finding. I'm kind of ruined by various and sundry gaming systems. I guess I just needed to be directly told what's what, in that instance.

    Thank you! That's exactly what I was looking to get confirmed. I never found an entry where it came out and said it, and I was sort of afraid of having inappropriately masterful PCs running around exploding buildings with eye lasers or whatever my devious PCs would do with misconstrued rules. (Things like it have happened before, if rarely...) Again, thank you guys.

    His other ideas were a male polar bear courtesan/concubine (Humorous as well as creepy), and some form of platypus (which I figured would just be a shrew minus natural weaponry (claws) in exchange for (spurs), plus protective lids and aquatic, and maybe a couple of additional optional talents and drawbacks). I'm working out more details of the origins of their styles and such when I have the opportunity today. Those martial arts supplemental books sound like they're going to be pretty sweet.
