    Oh, if it was known to the NPCs of the game she'd almost certainly get shot. So she's going to be posing as a Free Councillor.

    But the players should know the secret.

    Yeah, the fact that she's a seer needs to be known to the players, though I still like it better that you discuss it, rather than me stepping in as DM and being like "hey guys, she's a seer, but don't kill him, okay?"

    Also, as a seer and a librarian at that, you're going to be privy to some extra info about what the hell is going on in the city at the start, and I don't know how much of that you want to share necessarily.

    Also I'm going to need to put this to the group to work out a good reason to be working with the party in the first place.
    Tried this in a changeling game. the guy whose character was "boobs, sword and medpack" thought I was being an extremist.

    And dammit now I can't think about anything except a hot anthro Luna. Okay, gimme a minute. Gotta find my focus.

    Right! Okay!
    My idea for being in Hong Kong was "I'm an acanthus with 4 dots of destiny. I don't know why I'm here but I am." I'm only not going 5 dots because I want a familiar. Sai familiar may or may not be a succubus. Your reason for wing there could be as simple as 'the kookie person walked by me, remembered me from
    Years ago and insisted out meeting was fate. I'm to join your cabal, on the condition that he stops callin me Steve."

    Will be interesting to see how that works out.

    Edit - Damn Seer Ninjas.
    (Looks like it works more closely to how I'd figure after all)
    Actually, having status in multiple orders is suggete by the core book, with a heavy hint of being a spy. It's not all that hard, amongst consenting adults.

    I'm completely planning to open the thread with "I have this Seer, I need a good excuse for her to be working with you guys, maybe she's a prisoner/being blackmailed/paying off a debt/you guys have something over her, what's it going to be?"

    I don't have the emotional bandwidth to commit to a second game, so I won't be joining and will be instead following the unfolding hilarity and intruigingness of the particular setting from the sidelines (as I originally intended for this game).

    But it occurs to me that I know the kind of angle I'd probably take if joining such a game from what I know at the moment. When I conceived of Jack of Hearts, I had very recently finished watching Fullmetal Alchemist and other similar Anime, so the whole High-Wisdom goody-goody angle was forefront in my subconcious. This flavoured the whole excersize.

    For a game set all the way over in Hong Kong, with a secret seer in the party and so on, I'd have to go very different. I think it would call for rewatching Black Lagoon (and to a lesser extent perhaps the first series of Darker than Black, but mostly Black Lagoon). A more broken, selfish, tear it all down character with little problem killing. If they had any time for higher philosophical thoughts or plans (and they likely wouldn't have much), they might be interested in destroying the status quo and/or slamming so much vulgar magic up in the house that the whole paradox thing gives up and goes home crying.

    Would quite likely exit the game relatively early, feet first as it were.

    To clarify, I am not recruiting for this game, which is why I had not posted about it in this ooc thread following my initial mention of it after the no-forum insanity period. I asked a few people and specifically wanted to keep the numbers small. SiuiS brought it up here again, and I felt like it was okay to respond to him, but I want to make it clear that I do not have any open slots unless someone drops out.

    Which is lucky for me, because I have a long-term addiction to starting new characters. I think I must have played the Neverwinter Nights prologue about two dozen times at least. Got out of the first act of the game exactly once.

    Sorry. I did try to be oblique about it. I'm sorry if my mention causes any tension between ponies. That was what I wanted to avoid. Honestly? I just want a framework in which to make characters. I have ideas and they may even be playable.

Moreover, since Seer ideals are so totally selfish it makes perfect sense for a Seer to go over to the Pentacle if it would help their position - such as using the Pentacle to kill their higher ups before taking their jobs.

    EDIT: As Vulcan would say, "The best part of being a materialist is that you've got nothing worth dying over."
    Ahaha, it's like I wrote Mara's background with this in mind, except I had no idea. This will be hilarious (by which I mean we're all going to wind up Seers, aren't we?)
    Well, ok, there's also a decent shot Mara will become a Scelestus

    If it makes you feel any better, I was getting really close to cracking myself, so I'm secretly thanking you for bringing it up.

    ...that probably doesn't make you feel any better though. Have hugs instead.

    Not even high wisdom. A high wisdom Mastigos would respect your privacy. All I need is someone who is intelligent enough to value my existence, and wisdom could tank as long as he's not scelestus.

    Scelestus autocorrects to svelte stud. Maybe that white text was more wishful thinking than we thought? ;)

    Young mages is actually something I've been rolling around in my head recently. Hasn't really led to anything definite so far though...

    Let me know if it gets anywhere

    I feel sorry for the icecream man in the video. Anyway, I couldn't help but wonder what kind of mages the three kids are, so ...

    The white kid we see first is probably a Space mage. He seems like the one who keeps an eye on things, so Mind is probably not a crazy idea either. No doubt Mastigos, then. And clearly he has some Animal Ken, what with the dogs.

    The black kid is clearly a Forces mage, what with the lightning thing. Most likely Obrimos, of course, although I'm not sure I see any Prime stuff in there. But then, there's not much to base any of this on in the first place. I think he's the one dodging bullets from a machine gun at the end, that might be some minor fate/time stuff, maybe?

    The third kid, the one with the conscience, is probably Matter, based on his fondness for explosives. I suppose Moros, except he might have Spirit sight, what with the shadow thing, and Spirit really isn't a Moros specialty. On the other hand, he's clearly not Thyrsus or otherwise trained in Life, or he'd have been able to do something to save the icecream man's arm. So Moros is probably a good bet.

    So a Mastigos, Obrimos and Moros. For some reason I really like that party setup. I'd peg them all as either Adamantine Arrow or Free Council.


    Aaaand ... that was today's random, pointless exercise in analyzing a silly music video in terms of Mage.

    Now do this one.

    I don't even understand what's happening in it without Mage parallels.

    "not available in your country" I hate when they do that

    Found another, though.

    Well, that was certainly ... something. You know, my immediate impression is that what we're witnessing here is what happens when you Square the Circle. It's a mage duel, although the details will need further viewing of what exactly is going on. That's my gut reaction from first view.

    Seems a simple enough video, really.

    Aging popstar goes on cocaine bender. I suppose to mage-ify that it'd be aging Seer goes on exotic-drug-fueled bender.

    After actually watching that Bangarang video I agree that it's great for Mage inspiration. Saved.

    Hmm, I actually think that's some attempt to remove an abyssal manifestation, possibly contained in the radio in some manner. There are obviously several distortions of reality going on there, and they're using a combination of symbols including the whole kidnapping thing and the weird race/gender cage fight scenario as their best ritual to properly close the manifestation.

    I'd be less surprised by Madonna creating an abyssal manifestion than closing one, to be perfectly honest.
