Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

Just a quick "hint".

Putting the log in for the chat itself somewhere ELSE other than "Utilities" would be an, excellent, idea.

Especially for even newer players, or older players who are coming back, and don't really know where to look right off.

Re: Arcane Experience?

Regardless, the staff is still discussing this, but the general concern is that special Experience types are difficult to account for, need special coding, and provide a distinct advantage in growth for those that have them (Mages, Werewolves, maybe Vampires) vs those that don't (Changelings, Morta...

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

New system, that's more like... 3exp.

Though your point remains.

Re: Merits that give more

Without cracking a book, does professional training have ANY prerequisites, say in the asset skills, before you can buy a higher level of it?

If it does (and it should); taking it multiple times wouldn't be an issue. The preprequs would halt your progression through the merit naturally.

Re: Ruling: Venue Pitches

Because we do not wish to detract from the activity of 4.0 so we will be announcing per the time line roughly 3 months prior to game launch the venues so players can prepare. Not to put too fine a point on it? The detraction is here already. Its shown in the last 24 hours majorly. I logged in at 5a...

Re: Sanctity of Merits and PvP

Sanctity of Merits is RAW. Saying "Sanctity of Merits doesn't apply in X situation" is thus a contravention of it, and not universally desired or welcome, thus is the very definition of "forcing playstyle on others." Nowhere in this book does it mention a thing about whether or ...

Re: Sanctity of Merits and PvP

RAW doesnt touch on PvP.

So, not really in this case.

Re: Sanctity of Merits and PvP

Okay simple question is this.

"Why should you get something in return for losing?"

So that's why I'm not getting why you're so stuck on why those things need to be lost to make that Rp and story fun.

Re: Sanctity of Merits and PvP

"You lost so, here's a reward. Enjoy" is not at all what this is." The reference was in terms of Merits since this is what the topic is about. And yes if you lose them and then get something back for having done so. You are being rewarded for a loss; instead of actually, you know, lo...

Re: Sanctity of Merits and PvP

You do kind of neuter a "side effect" of PvP if you start just granting back the points involved that you lost for getting involved in said PvP. Mind you I only think this for justified PvP, not just when someone decides they don't like your face and goes after you wholesale for no reason....

Re: Sanctity of Merits and PvP

If i am not mistaken, "Sanctity of merits" applies to losses forced upon the player through ST interactions.

It has no bearing on PvP situations where the ST's SL didn't have any effect on the situation.

Re: Social Maneuvering

If your impression with me is average and you want to woo my character into sleeping with him/her, then it'll happen after a week of attempts.
In a chat setting?

Not when PC's go from "Hello" to love and dating, to engaged, to married in a week long period....
