May Updates

Some big updates for the month of May! We have an all-new Guidebook that’s undergone a whole lot of minor edits and some major edits, both for clarification and adding more information about various things, especially locations people frequent. While anything major related to the game has been specified, it would be useful for everyone to re-read and get familiar with the pages relevant to them. While we have a search bar now, the new organisation makes it important that you know where to find the information you need when checking the guidebook.

Development
  • New Guidebook! Check it out.
  • The forum rules and discord conduct have been revised and some things have been expanded on, make sure you’re familiar with these.
  • Exchange Equipment has been renamed The Knack, with a new description.
  • Shifters are reduced to 4d6 Strike when they’ve ingested Aconite.
  • The ritual penalties have been organised and clarified, it is very important that all arcanists know the mechanics around rituals.
  • All Advancements from Novice to Apprentice have been reduced to two prompts.
  • All but Possessed Advancement for Apprentice to Master have been added.
  • Toolbox removed, links added to the sidebar profile.
Upcoming
  • The Master-Legendary Keywords are in the process of being updated. The main categories of Space, Time, and Reality will be broken into three keywords each. More to come.
  • Advancement Prompts for Master to Legendary.

April Updates

We're not big fans of April Fools, so you're saved a joke for today. Instead, have some bona fide updates to the Guidebook. It'll be tweaked a little over the coming months as we cut the chaff and trim the fat, cross our t's and dot our i's.

Development
  • Various pages in the Guidebook have been edited for clarity.
  • A sitemap has been added to the front page of the Guidebook.
  • Born Shifters now gain Inhuman Speed at the Mundian rank.
Upcoming
  • An update to the player toolbox in the sidebar
  • The Master-Legendary Keywords are in the process of being updated. The main categories of Space, Time, and Reality will be broken into three keywords each. More to come.
  • Advancement Prompts for Apprentice and up.

March Updates

March dawns and spring's a little closer! Remember that the Winter Gala and Chased by the Hours end on the 15th, which means no more prizes if you haven't gained enough points/finished the thread! Anyone can keep posting in these threads until they're finished after that date, however.

Development
  • The ritual guidebook page has been updated. The order of actions in a ritual has been clarified.
  • The abilities listed for all Paths have been edited to clarify where you should roll Cinder to use the abilities. Check the Path guidebook page relevant to your characters for any changes.

Upcoming
  • An update to the player toolbox in the sidebar
  • The Master-Legendary Keywords are in the process of being updated. The main categories of Space, Time, and Reality will be broken into three keywords each. More to come.
  • Advancement Prompts for Apprentice and up.

December Updates


It's our last update of the year! December's here and the holidays are closing in. There wont be a winter holiday event this year, but look out for something coming in the New Year!

We've got a few updates for December, make sure to read the changes relevant to your Paths! Therefore Sheol's second phase has triggered, so run along and read what happens next!

Development
  • Possessed abilities have been updated. Quid Pro Quo now allows a little more playing with the dice. Monophysite has been added, allowing the player to pick between Perfect Sync or One Mind, both offer the same bonus, but carry different flavours.
  • The Parting Gift ability for Possessed now allows the player to switch Path to either Undying, Half-Blood, or Cursed.
  • The Thoughtform ability for the Spirits has been updated. It allows a spirit to pick a Keyword from the Fey or Elemental portfolio in addition to the Path Keyword they get at the Mane rank.
  • Oaths now work between the Possessed and their Passenger, and a Possessed breaking and Oath with their Passenger would feel the consequences.
  • Oaths have been slightly modified, now it is not simply speaking a promise that can trigger an oath, but also agreeing to an oath or promise.
  • Added an Age Restriction Plugin to be activated on the 1st.
  • Removed Strike, Cinder, and Keyword instances from Advancement.
  • There's always been hospitals in town, but now we've named one in Newton. Say hello to St. Erasmus.
Upcoming
  • An update to the player toolbox in the sidebar
  • The Master-Legendary Keywords are in the process of being updated. The main categories of Space, Time, and Reality will be broken into three keywords each. More to come.
  • Advancement Prompts for Apprentice and up.

October Updates

Autumn's charging in and so's the spooky month! October's here and we've got some small updates made over the course of the last month.

Our October event has also begun and will run until the end of November. Read all about it and consider giving your characters a fright!

Development
  • We've changed the mechanics around the Spellbook ability. An Arcanist can now cast their prepared spells up to four times a day, but must roll a d6 for Resonance each time. Read more about the levels of Resonance on the Arcanist page.
  • Grounding for Undying has been clarified. It does not reset their magic use, but stabilises them. Read the new nuances to Grounding on the Undying page.

Upcoming
  • The Master-Legendary Keywords are in the process of being updated. The main categories of Space, Time, and Reality will be broken into three keywords each. More to come.
  • Advancement Prompts for Apprentice and up.

September Updates

Summer's about to leave us behind, but we're still getting our update out! This is a small update, but we're still seeing how the August updates are fitting in.

Development
  • The Advancement page has been reformatted, with a table of contents with quick links coming soon. We're still looking for a better solution, but for now it should be easy to ctrl+f your way to the relevant spots.
  • Shifter page has been reformatted a smidge, with some points clarified. We found contradictory statements about shifting limits in two spots in the document, so to clarify, a shifter can shapechange up to their halved Cinder pool, rounded down, before triggering the Feral state. Read more about Attunement and Feral here
  • Undying greedily had access to two versions of Null. Now they just have the one.

Upcoming
  • The Master-Legendary Keywords are in the process of being updated. The main categories of Space, Time, and Reality will be broken into three keywords each. More to come.
  • Advancement Prompts for Apprentice and up.
  • Further details about the Spellbook ability for Arcanists and the components needed will be codified.
