Killer will be waiting at least 3 days while taking in as much mana as he can from the castle before he does anything more. Can't go anywhere if we can't heal ourselves.

I mean, Killer's still got 6 points of damage on him right now, if it wasn't for the magical stamina boost increasing his health he'd probably be on the verge of collapse right now, so he'd have to spend minimum 1 mana to heal himself and everyone else (probably 2 to get everyone to full), and at that point we'd be going on an adventure into the shadow with absolutely no possibility of healing and roughly half of Killer's kit completely gone, Killer's not up for that and neither am I.

Saint would have probably went with it though

EDIT: Oh wait Beats actually has Life 3 now, he can heal people as well. So I guess as long as they're cautious Robor and he might be able to do something on their own. Still should probably wait for the others.

Beats would agree to all go back to the castle first then step into shadow to test the scrying. dedf not intending to fight yet, just try to locate them.

And since I do always forget he can do it Beats will also heal himself quickly first

Honestly, if the Vamps are in twilight, and it's daytime, I think it might be really easy lol.

Robot just needs some time to draw a sun spirit to follow them..

Beat's might not know it, due to lack of prime, but such ward/bans commonly allow an exception for thier creator.

Of course the mastiff has not actually used any magic. The 'locals' are just spirits that were already in the crater to begin with.

Also, Beat's is familiar enough with space to know that wards and bans are not foolproof - a high enough success in the casting can still overcome them (hint hint).

Ooo I knew that there would be an exception etc. but was playing Beats as more reacting in the moment than carefully thinking.

I had indeed forgotten about the possibility of overcoming a ban though thanks!

What Beats thinks he's doing:

I'm going to teleport out of here, destroy those rock pillars and foil all of that doggy's plans in one fell swoop!

What he's actually doing:

Good luck getting your ass destroyed by all six of those lumbering mud things without your powers Robor! I'm getting out of here! *Teleports* Wait no there's a Greed here oh god he's mauling me oh the humanity nooooooo

Is this important enough to Beats to actually spend Willpower on (+3 Dice)?

"Fine, but you still get to ferry me to wherever his nonesense is." Robor says .

"Just me then, hound."

What does Robor Mean by this - I'm a little confused...  ???

So...

Seems like we hit a bit of a slow down, as the direction of the game is not as clear-cut as it used to be. This would actually be a decent place to break off between the next Chapter, if'n everyone feels like doing XPs now of course.

We just need to have a group descision about whether to bother with the two Belial's Brood vampires or to let them go for now. Emend will know if they ever return anyway, and by then, the PCs will be leveled up enough to nuke them pretty easily.

As for Robor's deal with the devil, he's actually quite screwed.

His bargain was to get his payment after he recovered all the pieces of Rakshasa's treasure and the ability to sense their locations. However, Hitler's typewriter was destroyed, rendering Robor's side of the bargain unfulfillable. This means that Rakshasa never has to worry about actually paying Robor AND got promoted from Rank 3 to Rank 4 (for coercing an Awakened into a deal). Rank 5 is Demon Prince by the way (only one more to go haha!).

As for the next Chapter, it deals with the Heart of Flies, etc...

What does everyone think?

If Robor’s matter gets high enough couldn’t he reconstruct the typewriter? The geass would also show him where the destroyed remnants are for him to reconstruct it with

If we start playing around with Time we might also be able to retrieve it at some point as well

I don’t think we can do anything about the vampires right now. Or, to be clear, I think we could totally kill them and even escape but we would be followed and there would probably be some pretty serious repercussions at the castle

And yeah I think the chapter is pretty much over. I don’t think the direction is unclear or anything, we have to deal with the buyer for the heart, there’s just nothing for us to actually do until we meet him - maybe set up a fortified meeting place or something?

Also, Robor needs to use his spirit bodyguard spell or whatever it’s called already

I'm definitely playing up that forgetful flaw haha. But yeah, shouldn't a higher level of matter help fix that minor issue?

Woudnt the type writer being destroyed not matter? It'd be annoying recovering the pieces of it, but the deal was they recover the pieces of the collection, not return it to him in working condition.

Without Advanced Prolongation, the spell is basically only good for gathering a bunch of spirits for a task and then it ends. You need at least Gnosis 4 for it to be of any real use, as you would currently be considered a Rank 3 Spirit with Gnosis 3. That means that only weak spirits would currently follow you.

So, does anyone thing I should get Angelic Legacies? Given how easy it is to lose integrity and its cost to regain it it doesn't really seem worth it, especially when the first two levels seem to just be once a day buffs to some social rolls and a flighty ability.

Pretty sure increasing Emend's forces ability and maybe getting a rote or two is the better play, right?

You can use the Legacies more than once per day. Also you don't lose them once you have gained them, though perhaps going full anti-paladin would probably color how they looked/worked later.

I'd get the wings just for cool points, but i'm a sucker for wings

Dunno if Halo is worth the exp investment to get integrity up though, especially since tongues isn't even a vulgar spell and you'll get it with Mind anyway

Ah. Still, you'd likely have to re-buy the integrity to get the cooler higher level things, as the higher you get the more restrictive the rules for integrity are, so you'd likely lose it somewhere along the way.

True, though I think at some point, you would stop losing integrity via seeing something horrible.

Maybe, have that one only able to affect you once?

It is the only one the character has no self control over.

Further edits -

Angelic Legacies

1st Attainment
Halo (Gnosis 3; Integrity 8)
The Angelic Halo can shine forth at will to convince others of the disciple's holy calling. It can be as overt as a blazing glorious ring of white fire above the head; or a bit more subtle, such as a ray of sunlight shining down through the clouds to spotlight the disciple. Even more subtle could be a healthy glow and aura of peace and calm.

Regardless of the visual intensity, the Halo lasts a Scene and bestows the Gift of Tongues on the disciple, as well as allowing him to add Composure to the following Social rolls: Animal Ken, Empathy, Expression, Intimidation, Persuasion (excepting fast talk & seduction), and Socialize (excepting carousing).

2nd Attainment
Wings of Light (Gnosis 5; Integrity 9)
As Flight (Forces •••••), but with a set Speed of 15. Additionally, the sheer grandeur of Wings of Light grants a Bonus to Presence equal to Gnosis.

3rd Attainment
Ascension (Gnosis 7; Integrity 10 -OR- Integrity 9+ with Martyrdom)
Become an Angel

Final Attainment
Greater Ascension (Gnosis 9; Both Ruling Arcanum Above 5; Have Successfully Ascended a Disciple)
Become an Archangel
