Re: The Consequence of falling Spirit Axioms

My own take on the Spirit Axiom is that it determines the ability of Mortals to use divine power and interact with divine things. The gods of Shinto are real in both Pan-Pacifica and Core Earth, but they and mortals can interact a little bit more. In Core Earth (Spirit 10), you can believe in Angels...

Can Maelstrom Bridges survive without Stelae?

If the stelae protecting a zone around a Maelstrom bridge are pulled up, does it collapse or remain in place with reality storms on it or what?

Re: Queen Buckingham....

(1a. There's a mention in the book of the House of Buckingham ruling for 450 years, which implies that British history looks pretty different. Which is interesting since the Duke of Buckingham in the late 17th Century was a dabbler in alchemy. So hmm.) So the Buckinghams come to power about 450 yea...

Re: Aysle Review and Balance Comments

I would definitely interpret it as 'if you fail with the spell, you can't use it again until you have a minute to study it'. This is a pretty small limitation. (I also have to note that Sorceror Supreme lets you use one spell by spending a poss and posses don't grow on trees in this edition. Whereas...

Re: Goon Numbers Too Low

It's very much an art. The party I'm running has a person who virtually always hits but often can't actually take things out, the person who struggles to hit but trashes things when they hit, and the PC who is middle-of-the-road with both. Their ability to fight things varies a lot by the situation....

Re: Beta Primers are out

The way the perk rules are worded in the core sounds like most perks are not limited by Cosm, even if they're more common there, as it says 'Cosm: The cosm the Perks are typically found in.', rather than 'the Cosm you have to be from to take it. Should this actually mean you normally DO have to be f...

Re: Beta Primers are out

Have now read the Player Primer for Beta Chars, some interesting Perks. One of my players is going to love the one where you can make Soak rolls for your plane.

Also, being able to requisition an air strike is cool.

Re: Changes to Core Earth's Axioms

Since all four magic skills can't be used without proper training, this means people can't just observe a spell and duplicate it, which will incline people to think it must be a trick. (Similarly, though Faith *can* be used unskilled, you can't just observe miracles and duplicate them either.) Both ...
