Re: [Feature Request] Mage Spell Coder/Decoder

That is great news, JillA. I will definitely be using that to keep track of stuff on my personal logs. Really, everyone should, but that's probably a personal choice until the staff deems otherwise. Anyway, this is a rough draft of what I was thinking of - SPELL NAME - ((Just like the Dewey Decimal ...

[Feature Request] Mage Spell Coder/Decoder

Admittedly, this is a long shot, but here is my pitch. Mage is a complex game and it is very easy for players to either make a mistake or misrepresent their rolls because of the complexity of the information being digested and regurgitated in a short amount of time. Add to the mix the limited amount...

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

Simply - With the exception of mortal+ supernatural merits, are other merits considered powers for purpose of detection, anti-magic, and other considerations? It is obvious many are purely mundane, but if the others are not, can we get a list?

The Extended Action Die Roller Is Wrong

The “extended action” option of the die roller does not work properly in regards to 2e rules. Specifically, with a failure, the PC is supposed to be given the option either to abandon the project OR to accept a negative condition and continue on. The dice roller does not work this way. Instead, the ...

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

I have a question about the nature of the Mage merit "Destiny" - is it an IC conscious-use power, meaning is it a deliberate act on the part of the CHARACTER to use it ("I am just going to speed through all the traffic lights on the way there. Don't worry about it, little buddy, I am ...

Re: Trouble Navigating on Phone

There is a work-around that I use, which is essentially clicking on a wiki page and navigating via the links found there. That works for all of the wiki pages, which is better than being locked out completely. I found the index page and made a link to it on my tablet. I hope it makes this inconvenie...

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

p. 49 of The Hurt Locker, Grappling •• (Small Joint Manipulation) and p. 49 of Kino Mutai •• (Ripping) have a reference to the styles causing the Agony Tilt, however I have combed through all of the books and cannot find it. The closest is a persistent condition named "Chronic Agony" whic...

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

Correct me if my logic or facts are wrong - Pledges are divided into Sealings, Oaths, Bindings and Goblin Vows. The number of Pledges that a character may have active at one time, regardless of type, are limited on a 1:1 basis with the PCs Wryd score, meaning a PC with a Wyrd of 3 may have any comb...

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

I am brand spanking new to Changeling, so I have been tackling concepts with the v.6 Beta rule set with some success (and minor stumbles) until now. There is a lot that I have not delved into yet, but I feel if I go through it all methodically, it will be easier to digest. The part that I am getting...

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

On the above post by Ephsy, I agree. As long as I am here, I have a question regarding merits that can be acquired through status - If an item being sought has another merit as a prerequisite (for instance the Advanced Library requires Safe Place) does that character need to have the prerequisite to...

Re: [Proposal] A New Approach To Managing Status

No offense, but challenging a point is the only way to change minds. In no way is anyone being offensive or derogatory here. That being said, if open discourse is discouraged by a staff member or as a policy of the site, then that is a problem.
