Or, you know, stop trying to bring stuff that routinely breaks TOG into FC just so you don't have to Cheat Death.

This actually does sound like a Cheat Death scenario.

"As Marzak's soul escapes his body it is summoned forth to the eldritch circle where it was partially bound in his tower's basement. It's arrival triggers the glyphs that bind the soul into the new body, cloned for this very eventuality."

The GM collects the players votes and rolls the die . . .

What fate awaits for Marzak?

Mistborn Adventure Game / Re: Cheating Kandra

The more I think about it, the more I think TenSoon may have just outright lied to Vin when he said Kandra weren't affected by emotional Allomancy.

If I am a Kandra, privy to the knowledge that Allomancers with sufficient strength in Brass or Zinc can control you like a puppet, I'd be inclined to tell them that, "Yea, that emotional Allomancy stuff? Doesn't work on Kandra so don't even bother trying."

So, my players have discovered a simple, fairly fool-proof way to test if someone is or isn't a Kandra. They just have someone Sooth or Riot a specific emotion, and see if the person of interest can tell which emotion they're manipulating. I... Don't really want it to be this  easy to discover Kandra. Does anyone have a way to foil this?

Do they have any way to know this in character? This sounds like something that would definitely be a secret and if they haven't uncovered it in game my response would be along the lines of "Sorry, your character has no idea that Kandra aren't affected by emotional Allomancy."

That aside, Zinc and Brass are supposed to be subtle. The narrator has to spend 2 complications to have the target realize they were targeted at all to say nothing of them noticing which emotion is being toyed with. The vast majority of people, not just Kandra, aren't going to be able to answer that question correctly.

Does anyone have Scry?

There is a Clone spell in the preview, but it's for cloning others, not yourself. (It literally requires a pound of flesh from the original, so while I guess you could make a clone of yourself, it'd be... problematic...)

Well, there's literally a spell in the core book that shows a limb being regrown...

Is the reputation cost at least reasonable for the effect? I mean, the dream is that your mortal enemy exhausts all of his resources fighting you, resulting in both of your deaths within the two day duration, but the nightmare of dropping a pile of Reputation and then nothing much happening for the next two days seems far more likely.

Oh, it's incredibly cheap, compared to f.ex. Resurrection. If you've got good Legend and are running in high-Menace adventures, you could cast it every adventure. I guess it's because you could get lucky and end up wasting the spell...

Sounds like you'll just need Power Word: Kill to make sure you get good use out of it.

After Megaros employed some magical ritual to Jick that consisted in part of saying *Touchoflighttouchoflighttouchoflighttouchoflight...* for close to two minutes, the team could move on - now with a clear direction in mind.

Like parting a curtain they suddenly found themselves at a beach with white, fine sand. The waves of the previous night had washed it flat and only a few small grabs moved along it and marred the smooth surface. Vashkar used the free sky to stretch his wings and take a look for the glass manufacture. It took him a few minutes but then he spotted a stone formation that looked suspiciously like a furnace and indeed there was a small gap in the vegetation that looked like an animal path that fitted the approximate direction.
All they had to do was cross the beach to get there...

It's out of combat healing and allows you to adventure on without taking long rests - I don't see why you shouldn't use it. Wounds and Fatigue is what I dole out if I want to slow you down  ;)
