Re: Melee Weapon lengths

Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

We're going to take some time to talk through this and determine what if any changes should be made.

Re: Holding a Shield and Melee Weapon in the Same Hand

Hi! We're currently discussing. This one might have some crossover with Safety as well, so we want to take the time to make sure everyone's on the same page.

Thank you for your patience!

Re: Power Masks

Correct! Note that this only applies if you're actually wearing a "non-decorative, animal or monster mask" as described by the errata on the power, not just if you're disguised or using it to bypass subfaction makeup requirements. Clarifying that the intent of the mask portion of this power is for d...

Re: Merits

A human's free merit counts in all ways as a normal merit. So if you take Income as your free merit for being human and two games later you decide you want to buy Sorcerer, it will cost you 6xp. The "certain exceptions" are a handful of merits that explicitly exclude themselves from the cost of subs...

Re: Truth-telling Powers

1. Yes. Truth-telling powers work based on IG character knowledge. You should answer questions based on what your character believes to be the truth. So if you character has a Delusion that the are the king they would answer that they are in fact the king, even under hypnosis. 2. This is a little tr...

Re: Hypnotism

Good questions! 1. No. Eye contact is not required, you must simply keep looking at the target and maintain line of sight. Eye contact can be difficult for nearby players to read if there's a dispute, and the more permissive interpretation cuts down on confusion. The intent is not to punish players ...

Re: Lores at Character Creation

Nope, it's character creation or nothing. The lores represent access to restricted information and potentially training from your character's backstory. If you want to learn a discipline or subfaction secrets during game, you have to do it the old-fashioned way. Sub-faction lore allows a character t...

Re: Rumors and Rules Shouldn't Mix - Rituals

Yes, this is accurate. It's tucked away on p.23 under Ghoul Rules and Gifted Kinfolk Rules. Ghouls may use Level 1 Blood Rites assuming they have one dot in Rituals and meet all other requirements for the ritual. Gifted Kinfolk may use Level 1 Glyph Rites assuming they have one dot in Rituals and me...

Re: Visions

It's not actually stated anywhere that you can't purchase each Merits multiple times, but that's something that we're planning to clarify.

For now, assume that you can only ever purchase each merit once unless it explicitly states otherwise (e.g. Income).
