Re: Reliquaries

It's all Ebenuscrux giving 'revelations' to Malraux. So, let me try and draw the thread: ⋅  Malraux is now the sole inventor-by-revelation in the entire Realm... ⋅  ...and he thinks that this comes from God ⋅  ...except in Magna Verita/Cyberpapacy/GodNet, God is broken...

Re: Reliquaries

Oh. I had completely misunderstood. I... need to wrap my head around this. I had found the notion of revelation extremely interesting so I'm a bit sad about this. By the way, while we're at it, is there anyone who legally has access to Reliquaries? Or is it something that Malraux wishes to hide unde...

Re: Reliquaries

And nowadays, if I remember correctly, Ebenuscrux is the only one inventing things and nobody’s being granted visions of new tech anymore. Is that how you interpret it? My understanding was that you had to somehow pray to Malraux to get the visions (from Ebenescrux) whereas in the past, you prayed ...

Re: Reliquaries

Ah. No, that's not the way it works. I mean, if that's the way you want it to work in your game, that's fine. But it's not like "oh I'm going to pray and get a breakthrough"...it's "I woke up this morning and got a breakthrough" or "I saw the sun rise and got a breakthrough...

Re: Reliquaries

To be clear...the Reliquaries don't have _all_ knowledge...they just could have any knowledge. Sure. But, if I understand correctly, just like Wonders in the Living Land, it's a good place for a Gold Rush: out of the people who actually survive an assault on a Reliquary, very few will hit gold, but...

Re: When Cosms Collide Discussion Thread

I've just started reading it. For the moment, I have a few difficulties getting into the internal logics of things, but hopefully, that will come. I'm really weirded out by the use "Oradour–Sur–Glane", though. As far as I can tell, it looks like a gratuitous reference to a nazi massacre . ...

Re: Reliquaries

Yup. I realize that there's no space to turn this into a Law like the Law of Wonders, but I think it would be nice if this was given a little more visibility :) Between Reliquaries and revelation-by-prayer, the Cyberpapacy becomes a very, very, very tempting destination for everyone, in particular ...

Reliquaries

The way I understand them, Reliquaries are not just GodNet data vaults, but they have something very supernatural about them, much in the same way as the Lost Wonders in the Living Land. So it would not necessarily be surprising (to a GM) to see a Reliquary containing long lost data from, say, the U...

Re: GodNet vs. Reality

So that means that the GodNet is a reality in a 'side dimension' as it doesn't effect the real world. To be fair, I assume that we all wanted for this to be true in the first place :) (fwiw, in my pre-sourcebook take on the Cyberpapacy, the Divine Reality/GodNet was the actual Invading Realm, with ...
