Hiya Seth and Community,

I read your blog version of Alyria. Really cool. Just a quick quesiton, in the sample scenario you mention that one of the characters follows the rules for the Blessed, but I couldn't find any special rules. Am I missing somethiing?


P.S. nice to see someone else in the gaming community not afraid to speak of matters of spirituality and faith.

You know, once upon a time there were some rules for the Blessed, but I must have pulled them.  They were pretty simple, though.  A Blessed character could sacrifice a "point" from an Attribute to get a reroll.  (For example, click down your Force from Terce to Lauds.)  This loss was permanent and represented the Mark that you earned.  I'm guessing that I pulled them because it seemed like it was inappropriate system emphasis for a specific item.

As far as the Gifts of the Chosen and dragon cultists, I've generally seen them as being a supernatural extension of a Trait.  So, for example, a cultist with a Trait of Cutting Words might narrate an occasional Gift where he is able to discern a person's darkest secret so that he can know how best to incite or insult him.
