Rule Changes

From Obscura

Term 2 Week 9

  • White Tag has been added to indicate the character is a Keeper, with the same meaning as White Robe.

Term 2 Week 6

  • Reagents freely available with Ducatto now cost 1 Ducatto if bought before interactives and linears.

Term 2 Week 4

  • Any reagents now freely available for Ducatto can be taken as your default downtime gather, both for unsubmitted downtimes and missed weeks.

Term 2 Week 1

  • Sense Magic is now unlimited uses for everyone. Bear in mind using Sense Magic on a person is mildly uncomfortable, so you might get complaints if you do it to everyone.
  • Insightful Observer can now identify the intended effect even if you don't have the skill being used.
  • Insightful Observer can now be used to once per day ask COMPEL: Tell me, was that the truth?

Pre-Term 2

  • Wounds will now say on the card if they can only be treated in an interactive. If it doesn't it can be fully treated in the field.
  • Preparation's skills can now be activated separately.
  • Reanimation now gives CURE 1 while incapacitated once per day instead of temp HP.
  • Clarified that tricks, techniques and focus powers can be untrained, so you can retrain the one you chose when you took Combat Training without unlearning your whole combat school.
  • Clarified that you can unlearn any two rituals when unlearning Learn Ritual, they don't need to be two you learned at the same time.
  • Clarified that skills that grant calls can't be combined with each other or other abilities that grant calls, such as weapon oils and pacts.

Term 1 Week 4

  • STUN changed to allow moving at a walking pace rather than immobility.
  • Learn Ritual changed to grant 2 rituals each time the skill is taken.
  • Lowered several ritual costs, particularly for rituals that use a wound slot, and sometimes added a discount when the thaumaturgist casts on themself.

Term 1 Week 2

  • Non-contact players are now identified by the lovely flourescent yellow bands we were gifted last week.
  • Clarify that Backstab can only be done with <24" melee weapons.

Term 1 Week 1

  • Learn Ritual now learns 50% more rituals - every second time you take the skill you learn 2 formulaic rituals instead of one.
  • Downtime deadline changed to Monday afternoon, since we're clearly not going to have a refmeet between midnight and then...
