  1. HQ: G: Jakaleel subcult magic

    Are their Dying Phase completely working like the Spirit Rune or are they limited to spirits of their tradition and spirits with the moon rune?
  2. HQ: G: Jakaleel subcult magic

    They work the same way as other animists, "integrating spirits" is just a term used about all animists for them making relationships with spirits. (ie getting new charms)
  3. HQ: G: Jakaleel subcult magic

    That's how I interpret it too and I remember some fluff about how Jakaleel initiates are pure traditionnal animists instead of being eclectic like most lunars. Obviously they can learn lunar grimoires under another of their Runes, as independant spells, improvise Glamours of their phase with the usual stretches and get other phases if they are illuminated but their Dying Phase "only" has access to the spirits of the lunar tradition, not all of them being Lunes. Like other animist traditions, they integrate spirits from various Spirit Societies. Most other lunar immortals instead indistinctly give Grimoires, Evocations and Lunes based on their powers.
  4. If an intelligent magical item is your companion, then what is its species keyword? They don't have one? a keyword for representating the broad powers of the powerful item? are you supposed to stat its personal spirit instead, making the companion the same as an allied spirit?
  5. Pentan religion

    It makes sense to me, thanks.
  6. re-incarnating with others' bodies

    I agree that the serial immortality of Belintar and The Red Emperor are similar but I think that we know quite a bit about both: Belintar takes over the body of the Winners of the Tournament of Luck and Death but their essences are united until the new body is weared down by the essence of Belintar, then the Winner is liberated with full consciouness to a blessed existence. Winners seems to be completely passive when they are inhabited by Belintar and liberated ones probably become godlings or equivalent in the mysterious otherside of the Holy Country, it's possible that they become extensions of Belintar but we don't really have any evidences. The Red Emperor seems to be a construct of the Egi, maybe not originally (he could still have been the demigod son of the Red Goddess, or maybe it's pure fiction/only symbolic) but the Egi all have to "contribute" to his new body and Sheng Seleris killing some of them made him less stable, so he is probably at least partially a kind of over-soul (wyter in the general sense of the word) of the Egi. (The reason why he is not exactly the same when he gets a new body could be that since Sheng Seleris not all the Egi involved are always the same) In both cases, I'm not convinced that Illumination or Mysticism is needed.
  7. Pentan religion

    The way the three otherworlds seems to work now is fine IMO. There are no longer the absurd situations where you would have to roll to know if you get a penalty because the cloud you try to magically control is an essence instead of a daimon and Misaplied Worship is gone but the three otherworlds still exist even if their separation is less absolute and that many religions and beings are mixed in various and interresting ways. I would be a bit sad if all deities are now both equally gods/spirits/essences because that's a bit boring and overly simplistic but getting spirits from Orlanth despite him being a bona fide God makes sense especially if your religion has mythical precedents of having such a relationship with him. (But the Pentans theistically worshipping Orlanth and also having a Spirit Tradition would also be interesting, and obviously West King Wind could be a Great Spirit corresponding to the same winds as Orlanth, just like Elmal and Yelm are both the sun) For example, Aeol probably still had to do some work to make his brand of Henotheism possible, and Aeolians still have some sort of mutually beneficiable relationship with the Orlanthi gods. (But I guess that some henotheists could only mimic the magic of gods and deluding themselves with the belief that they are venerating/worshipping them but I don't think that's what most henotheists are doing) I don't really understand how someone could get theistic magic from an Ascended Master or a Spirit (Spirit -> Grimoires and Ascended Master -> Spirits make sense in my head but getting theistic magic from something else than a god without it just being misaplied worship without a malus doesn't) but I'm probably just lacking imagination.
  8. Six husband-protectors of Ernalda

    Does this mean that they are worshipped in Esrolia?
  9. Pavis, City Gods and Wyters.

    Is Pavis the same type of entity as a Wyter and is his actual magic working the same way for the communauty of Pavis? I assumed that City Gods and Wyters are the same thing (also assumed that communauty spirits of animists are similar and that Malkioni simply use Chains of Veneration for all their communal magic instead) but I'm not sure given that the description of the communal worship of Pavis imply that they are just worshipping him and then he uses his own magic to magically maintain and protect the city. My own guess is that he is not even really a City God and that people sacrificing to him is a theistic form of a Chain of Veneration (or just lending him magical energy in a similar way) but maybe City Gods are different from Wyters? Thanks!
