Quote from: Ron EdwardsI also think that many Sorcerer GMs would do well to read Chapters 1-3 in The Sorcerer's Soul very carefully after their first or second Sorcerer session of actual play. The material depends so heavily on locally customized aspects of play that it doesn't "strike" other readers.
Quote...and finally, a Will roll between Essinal and Girett to see whether it would break its binding to Krisst.
QuoteEssinal used this change in her life to drive an attempt to Bind Zett away from Krisst, its master.
QuoteThe conflict is expressed as a Will vs. Will roll between Shrekt'Ka and Zett,
Quotea will vs. will roll between Essinal and Girett
Quotea Humanity roll between Essinal and Shrekt'Ka
Quotea "demons in love" roll between Zett and Girett,
Quoteand finally, a will roll betweeen Essinal and [Zett] to see whether it would break its binding to Krisst.
Quote... the Paragon story ... I confess I was surprised to see it given your seeming general disdain for game fiction. On the other hand, it was written expressly as a demonstration of the story type so it was not merely filler.
Quote... Azk'Arn ... I would love to contribute to the art projet.
Quote3.) The dice diagrams were a little hard to penetrate....In the two possesor problem on p 97 I believe you have a typo. ... the binding being broken is Zett's
QuoteI understand Shrekt'Ka is the host for Zett who is bound to Krisst (all are NPC's here). The Will vs. Will is to punish or try to push Zett out of his own body? Victories confer to Essinal whose action of binding Zett (I assume to free her lover) is the central one.
QuoteI'm not sure what this one is about either...she's fighting for control of her body as host? Again though, victories/penalties confer on Essinal's final action.
QuoteBetween? Humanity vs. Humanity? Or do they both roll humanity vs itself for the relationship and then those victories roll over?
QuoteNo score mentioned and demons don't have humanity. Is it a power roll? Is the demon relationship being rolled to oppose the main roll or to support it?
Quoteusing bonuses from the first four rolls.
Quotethe diagram indicates that the main roll between Nasua and Zochat'lan is a Will vs. Will and the text indicates Power vs. Lore.
QuoteIn the Queen-mating ritual example seems understandable. If I'm reading it correctly, the rolls occur simultaneously but the key vicories compared are the human mating roll vs the demon mating roll. The demon roll won, thus Nasua did what Miirun wanted - correct?
Quote.... the testamonials interesting and they helped illustrate the issues addressed early in the book though they did not always seem connected with the chapter they were attached to, or the connection was weak.
Quote from: Ron Edwards1. Did the Paragon story work, in terms of making the game material clear and/or interesting? Is anyone interested in playing a game using that setting?
Quote2. What about Azk'Arn? Does it sound fun? I'd really, really like to have some artists work on an Azk'Arn gallery for the website, and especially, if anyone wants to do a map, I'd be very grateful.
Quote3. Do those dice diagrams in Ch. 6 make sense, or (as I suspect) am I going to have to re-phrase my explanations here in this forum?
Quote4. How about the testimonials? What point did they make or reinforce, to you? Were they thought-provoking in any way?
QuoteThe Paragon story...doesn't act as an example of play nor as a verbal version of some specific mechanic. As a story, it illustrates a point very much like a picture does. That's the thought I was going with, anyway.
QuoteOr more accurately, considering that Nasua's Humanity hit 0 during this conflict, her lovemaking with Kirikin became a demonic act of mate-devouring rather than a human affirmation of mutual commitment.
Quotebut in the main, I consider them a chassis for the whole book rather than for specific points in chapter terms.
