Musical Madness: Studied or Natural?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to make a character that drives people to insanity by playing an instrument, but I'm not sure how to approach it mechanically.

I think the Terror Immuto will be central to the build, but if you've got something more thematic, please do share.

So, natural is where I'm leaning. Start with Mage (Arcane Shield is nice), and put together a Manifested Ability that summons Terror Gamin when the character plays an instrument (Music + Charm:mask?). Probably a unique instrument.

Following up it with an ability that summons the instrument to hand when needed. A terror pulse would be fun too! 

I see Better Part of Valor and Specialized Skill working well for this.

If you go mage I would take the step down from unique instrument, because if you lose it you are toast. If you are learned you can keep it at unique with less risk since you will still be able to use the spell just with an increase to TN

I ended up writing the manifest power with Focus Object (2 handed, specially made), so it can be replaced, at the cost of time and money.

If you want something else to capitalize off the delightful little Gamin Duet you have going on, consider your next Mage Manifested Power as the Self Harm Magia from Under Quarentine with the Terror Immunto. The Gamins inflict  -1 penalties and Negative Flips to WP and Self Harm is WP resisted.
