Note on Public/Private powers

So, because I've been asked a few times lately, I wanted to clarify. When powers are developed that have a 'Private' designation, that does not mean you could never possibly develop something similar yourself, it means you can't use typical 'put in an XP request and learn it' methods to learn it wit...

Re: House Rules Announcements

Noted in the Merit prereqs section that MCI only lets you bypass merit prerequisites if providing a specific merit or 1 of a very specific list of merits, not if it gives you X of a category (like Fighting Style dots).

Re: House Rules Announcements

Made a clarification in our house rules that minor/casual power usages aren't going to be brutally enforced; if you want to float a drink across the room with telekinesis or similar without making a roll or spending wp/energy, that's fine. However, this obviously isn't for anything resisted, contest...

Re: Totem changes

After speaking with the Storymasters, we've decided to make a few changes to how Totems currently work in 5.0. To start with, to gain the benefits of the Totem for a pack, you need to contribute at least a dot towards it. As well, fully supernatural creatures no longer inherently count as 'Wolf Blo...

Re: House Rules Announcements

So, slight tweak of Clash of Wills rules; when Clashing via an Attribute, only your BASE attribute level gets added to the Clash, not anything from magical enhancements. This is to keep Attribute-based Clash on the same level of those going off other trait levels (Renown, Arcana, etc) that aren't so...

Re: House Rules Announcements

The Embassy Wards have been updated on the Embassy page: https://wantonwicked.gamingsandbox.com/ ... ty/Embassy
We're hoping this will be a bit clearer and in depth as to when they apply and how. If there's any uncertainties, please submit Feedback to the Rulesmaster request queue!

Re: Changes to mage rules

Hallows are generally not meant to be portable as they're very specifically places where the Supernal comes through, and are often tied into Ley Lines and similar features. Loci might be a possibility, since they're often just tied to objects anyway. Feel free to submit a Request with a proposal for...

Re: Couple Days off

I'll be back to normal tomorrow evening, at which point I'll also be going over the requests that have been in the queue; I've tried to grab a few older ones as it is, but I know I haven't gotten to all of them yet. Sorry for those waiting!

Re: Couple Days off

I know I just got back a bit ago, but from this weekend until next I may be a bit scarce. Will still try to take care of question-based requests, but custom stuff might not get done quite as quickly. I'll take a look when I have time though.

Clarification: We do allow Sanctity of Merits to be used to just get XP, and it can be banked.

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

Sorry to bother you, but here's an odd interaction that's recently come up for Vampire. Mandragora Gardens produce dots x 2 in animal blood a month, in the form of sap, nectar or other fluids. The Primal Creation style doubles the size and fertility of any plants. As well, it can clone any flora or...

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

What about spells and withstand? Is it only checked when the spell is casted, or would a change in withstand affect the spell for the entire duration? Example: A cast a Mind spell on a subject to perform a specific task for me, duration is a month, withstood by resolve. Potence is 4, subject has 3 ...

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

Once a spell is cast on a subject, could increasing the size of the subject cause a situation where not the entire subject is no longer covered by that spell? Could it be set to be done so intentionally? Yes, if someone's size changes and the Scale no longer accounts for them, they're no longer aff...

Re: House Rules Announcements

"Once a chapter" and similar use prophetic powers done within requests can NOT be used again until the previous request has been closed out. And remember, a chapter is a week, story is a month, and chronicle is 3 months, in between uses.
