Well looks like me and Saphire will have some intimacies in common this should be fun especially if prejucides can be overcome.

Okay then, Marie, I kind of still need you to specify where Segiyu's home is. Also, you've still got one level of hearthstones left over. Manse 2 gives you three dots of hearthstones, and you only have two right now.

I'll go over the thread again when I'm less sleep deprived, but no one else has anything left to correct or that they need me to review, do they?

Not in my part as my char had already been reviewed. But for those who joined later my char is in here (first page yeah). I am eager to see how well I play a mute characther (Screaming in Silence covers occassional communications to be less awkward at times).

I'd just like to note I approve of the current conversation.

Also, there's a Solar charm called Sky Breaker Throw that lets the user potentially throw their victim anywhere in Creation, and even to other planes. So you can use it to toss someone onto the Daystar.

Anyway, Re Z L. I don't think I'll allow your Lying specialty, since it seems to effective be an extra dot of Manipulation.

Second, are you sure you want to buy Resources 2? It's not going to stack with the free Resources 3 at all. In fact, it should be encompassed by the free Resources 3.

Made a couple changes to the sheet:
  • Lying specialty changed to Persuasion
  • Removed the Resources 2, used the two extra Bonus Points to raise Larceny and Integrity by 1

Sheet is here for easy clicking~

I should (hopefully) have the history up later today.

The Uncrowned Princess doesn't really remember her life before her Exaltation.  They tell her that that's a blessing.  Only pain and anguish comes of remembering how things used to be, and her mistress, the Lover Clad in the Raiment of Tears, provided her a kindness by removing such traumatic memories.

She always had so much to learn.  The cacophany of whispering voices started from the first instant that she can remember.  She knows that she used to fight against it, trying to ignore their horrible tones and the dark images that burn through her mind.  Now she can't remember why.  She'd be alone, lost without them.

The only proof to the contrary came in a voice, booming and powerful.  He told her that this wasn't her path, that he believed in her and that she would find the way back.  She still doesn't understand, but she knows what she felt when she heard his voice.  He saw something in her, that he knew everything she could be and that he would never give up on her.  If she believed in love, she would almost think that he loved her.  Of course, if she believed in love, she'd understand how she felt about him.

From then on, everything the Lover told her seemed hollow.  Although the Uncrowned Princess never said so, the Lover quickly picked up on her deathknight's loss of adoration, and has since all but abandoned her.  All the Uncrowned Princess would have to do is pray to the Lover and beg to return to her good graces...but she can't.  She has to find out about this voice.  She has to understand.

Now she lives in Nexus, set up in Bastion District with a whorehouse named Caress.  Each of the five girls who works there has been well trained by the Uncrowned Princess, using the lessons she learned from the Lover Clad in the Raiment of Tears.

You can look over my guy waaaaay back here and see if you think it could work.

I think I may enjoy hitting Essence 3 a wee bit too much. I'm going to have possibly one of the most unusual combos ever. Trolling the enemy.

My guess would be Banquet of Crumbs, and then probably something coming off that allowing him to passively feed off high success virtue rolls, or channels of virtues.

Also Bottomless Gullet to store extra motes.

But these are just guesses. It could be Pennant + Bribes for all I know.

Rez... would it be terribly annoying of me to point out that my character's first name is also Sapphire?

Oh right, Res. Can you specify in your sheet who Dusk's contacts are?

As for Raksha regaining motes, aside from what everyone else has said, the Freehold background lets them split their Freehold levels between cysts (and pennants), which allow the Raksha to restore the cyst's rating in motes per hour. It's not very large regen, but it's something.

Yeah, plus depending how obvious looking raksha is it can lead to trouble in so many locations (they are not much liked as folks only see the empty sucked husks as only end result from raksha feeding when rakshas know how to moderate their feeding not leave empty husk if they would so want to. Just that most don't do that).

Anyways the team is quite interesting mix very least.

It's under the "expanded backgrounds" tab, if that's not enough detail I can add some more to it.

What if it's a Circle of Immaculate Masters? Or the Spiders of Mars?

(Also, I added some inconsequential stuff about the Hand of Writing way back. May also add more to the background if I feel the urge.)

I think that minor contacts don't get listed, IIRC. You just roll Contacts (possibly plus something) to see if you have a minor contact in the area. But don't quote me on that.

Yeah, as if you're not going to be able to figure out that my character is an Abyssal from post one...
