That blog's been a joy to read. It will be a shame to lose it.

Alex just uploaded everything to me and I've started the conversation about where it falls in my priority list. I won't hazard a public guess as to where it will land yet, but I think it's a safe bet that I'll have to let it sit at least a wee bit. Will try to keep you posted, but yes, not in the next two weeks methinks. Smiley

I disbelieve.

Sorry, couldn't resist. Smiley

I remember not being terribly excited about this spell back when I was working on the book either. The trappings are plenty necromantic but the effect isn't even remotely right. It's yet another case of the other systems treating magic as some senseless, amorphous mess of effects with absolutely no rhyme or reason.

Personally, I'd kill the whole thing and find something else that fits the level and Discipline.

Pat, Alex... Did one of you guys get a job as a show runner and not tell us?

No such luck. I disappeared last year for... different reasons.

If a poison inflicts damage and I use the Venom Master trick to change the incubation period to Instant, does the poison's damage contribute to Critical Injuries?

Ultimately a GM's call but I would almost always rule that it doesn't.

I figure this store owes me something more than gaming stuff at cost, so I took advantage to hit up the retailer pledge. So hopefully that means that we'll hit the magical "we can produce the dice for regular market release", which would greatly undermine my pledge's value (since any store could carry the dice at that point, making the retailer's pledge level not exclusive and awesome).

So, here's to me getting screwed over! HUGE SUCCESS!  Cheesy

You sir are my hero of the day. Thank you for your kind support!  Grin

I'm kind of hoping that as we get close to $20,000 (and therefore each dice showing a unique symbol) a flood of people will jump on board.

::fingers crossed::

OK so what if the Screaming Seekers (name change pending) instead of screaming your secrets, were a flying FactCheck.org? It follows along, finds the target, then when the target tries to lie, it screams out the truth? That way, rather than exposing secrets - which as you rightfully note, can undermine plots pretty quickly - it's preventing new secrets from being created?

Since when do secrets need to be true to be effective?

Sidebar material, right here!

I'm going to go back to the idea of the target being secretly persecuted by the screamers. They should be subjected to ongoing stress damage, and for the 2nd iteration the secrets it torments the target with become shared with the caster

This is the version I was voting for - for what it's worth.

Obviously, this only works if the GM is the one deciding what the orbs say, so no issues are created with the campaign story. If this option were used, I might also add a sidebar about how to use the spell results to enhance the game experience rather than detract from it.

Screaming Seeker sounds to me more like a terror weapon.

How about a summon, that hunts and terrorizes its victims by screaming at the top of their lungs their most damaging secrets or lies.

This gets my vote. I love this version of the spell chain, though I would drop enduring. That's effectively turns it into a slow death spell IMO.

This version also sidesteps the Prying Eyes comparison altogether, which I think should be a goal here.
