Re: How do people pull stelea?

Unfortunately, this isn’t as simple as blowing it up or knocking it over. Stelae are anchors of reality itself, a parasite grafted to the core of the land it’s taken over. Uprooting one requires severing those ties by altering existence itself. Also, actual destruction happens by axiom wash, not re...

Re: How do people pull stelea?

I'm working with cinematic by stellae reaction. But I do belive practice working with reality skill should be individual. Somebody would concentrate with temple fingering; somebody would strike it with axe. It's the question how it's simpler to a person to concentrate himself on some vision of reali...

Re: How do people pull stelea?

Oh. Simple and obvious answer - they manipulating reality suppressing stellae. What exactly does it mean? That's the same question as "what exactly reality skill do and how it works setting-wise"? I believe It's not exactly answered in Rulebook, but if I'm to speculate... Reality is a spir...

Re: Psi and the Social Axiom

I'm afraid I do feel that the Psionics-Social connection feels kind of forced to me. I think it was a good idea and I'd have very likely done the same thing if it had been up to me. For the most part, it works, but the fit is a little awkward in places. I always just repeating Yoda thoughts about i...

Re: Wrapping my head around the cosms

That's it, I'm going through Laws. In Lovecraft Mythos delving deep into Mythos would definitly corrupt and kill you. The Law of Eternal Corruption - check. Fear and terror is a very big part of Lovecraftian narrative. I believe more people died from terror in his books then by any other death. I'd ...

Re: Wrapping my head around the cosms

Actually, SOME of the mythos is magic. Some not. Still, were it IS tech, it's something about TA 28. Also, Frankenstein's monster is quite Victorian, I believe. And it fits Orrorsh, doesn't he? Also, I'm not sure that Lovecraft's cults are about big intrigue. Name "Esoterical Order of Dagon&quo...

Re: Social Axiom Underrated

You do. And you highlighted one of problems. I don't think people would transform trying to persuade somebody in something. Demanding sonets from Doberman, maybe, stupid; but why it's contradiction? I can perfectly demand somebody to install Communism just today, or invent antigrav. Why not. In idea...

Re: Psi and the Social Axiom

However, as a Mystic player, if I can't predict what my Magick (Psl, Miracles...) Is going to do, I can't play my character properly. I need to know, even if my character does not, that if he waves his hands thus and wiggles his fingers like...the fireball will explode in such fashion. ...and, as a...

Re: Social Axiom Underrated

Can you supply the title of these books, and do you know if they are available in E-form? Я читаю Русский, плохо. But for that storyline I would опьянение through. They are. It's Pavel Shumilov, Word about Dragon series. (Павел Шумилов, "Слово о Драконе"). The first line of the first book...

Quite possibly, and I'd even say - couple of them; in Torg sense, I'd say, Carter found a way to travel through Multiverse. He even Transformed to be able to act in some realms, if I recall right.
