Quote from: Old_Scratch on December 22, 2005, 04:37:20 PMTerrible OathsThis happens a lot in fantasy, the author makes an Oath that is supernatural in origin. How could you pull this off in Sorcerer? Make up the Oath as a sort of demon? Merely roleplay it out?
QuoteRunesIn Artesia, runes are important, as are magical blades. Runes figure heavily throughout magic in this, and runes are a part of an army's defense. How could you use runes? There more commonplace than sorcery, so I wouldn't want to use them as rituals, but instead, might simply give the person with more runes a simple +1 bonus die as if they had a superior weapon. The number of Runes isn't important, its simply rune superiority.
QuoteGlobal or Regional EffectsA Black Sun appears and seems to affect everything. It also reminded me a little of Lee's The Storm Lord. What happens when region-wide biological or magical events happen: the cycle of the moon or seasons. Could this function as simply a temporary price to certain actions: +1 to rituals at night, -1 to Will tests involving the opposite sex, etc... etc...
Quote from: angelfromanotherpin on December 22, 2005, 06:19:51 PMI've not read Artesia, but here's my two cents.If it's sufficiently Humanity-challenging and in-theme, you could use a Demon for it, but I think the Price-raising rules on pg 69 of &Sword are meant to cover this sort of thing.
QuoteRunes are basis for roleplaying bonuses. Describe the sharp angles and sickly red light of your Rune of Eternal Hate as it feeds on and into your enmity for your foe, or whatever. I guarantee that when the Runes aren't cool-looking, the people using them have no benefit.

Although, it could be argued, that she is naked and having orgies far more frequently than she is clothed. I probably should mention that this book has a lot of nudity and sex, tons of it, most of it with multiple partners and pretty graphic. Part of it is ritualistic in origin and ofttimes her ghosts are there lurking about as their Need is the experience sensual gratification. I think that it could also be a good reference for Sex & Sorcery.
