  1. And in the "Above the Law" there are few Magia of Counter-Spelling, so you can use triggers with them (if you are Guild enough).

    How to Duel? (Western Style)

    What if you will do it similar style as the card game with Zoraida? See pg 48 of "Into the Bayou". Some poker game depends on the Fated's Pistols Skill, luck and completed Destiny Steps. You can change the way the Fated's enemy performing the duel (no one is good in shooting like Zoraida is good in gambling). And change the outcome of the duel, of course. And play some cool western music. Music helps a lot.

    Power Looping in TTB?

    The Fatemaster and the player can create an appropriate Manifested Power for the Tinkerer after the completed Destiny Step.

    Magewright's magic

    My point was about there is no usual phrase about Magical Theory for starting the pursuit. That can be read that fresh-new Magewright is allowed to cast without Magical Theory.

    Magewright's magic

    There is no Magical Theory for the Magewright's pursuit in the "Above the Law" book. That doesn't feel right because he is a caster. Is it a mistake or it is supposed to be this way?
  8. Hola! We are running TTB games in Novosibirsk, Russia. We are going to run a "Wyrd Chronicles" scenario at 18 of November. Currently we have a full party of Fateds but you are welcome to join our bunch of players. You can contact me with personal messages here or with social media (https://vk.com/ttbnovosibirsk) for choosing pre-generated Fated or create your own. Our usual place, "The Wizard's Tower" is still under reconstruction (I hope that next month it will be fully ready for players), so we will be in the boardgames shop "Nastolium" this time. If it will be a good place, we can even make it our new usual place (they have cookies!). Date: November 18th Where: Boardgames shop "Nastolium", Gogolya street, house № 37 Starts at 13:00.

    What's the appeal to the Guild?

    Well, things are pretty simple in SW - there are the Good Resistance and the Evil Empire. In Malifaux it's not so simple: every fraction is pretty evil. May be Gremlins are exception - they are just comic mirror of others. The Guild is a MNC with all it's oppressive methods + propaganda + corruption. Arcanists are criminals from the 192X of our world's USA (unions connections, sabotages, murders and smuggling) + cannibals' cult + experiments with people. Ten Thunders are also criminals but more traditional (kill the family and use their kid as a thug - hello, Mei Feng) Neverborns are horrible crazy freedom fighters who are OK with eating people and making them loose their minds. Ressurectionists are maniacs and lunatics. Outcasts are brutal mercs who are OK with robbery and murders + two Tyrants who want to rule the world. And it's OK for me. It's much more realistic then a dichotomy of Good and Evil - it's sorts of evil. Just choose yours and try to pretend that your Evil fraction is actually Good.

    What's the appeal to the Guild?

    No bone leg, no chicken-legs-house, no "I-am-the-guardian-of-the-board-between-life-and-death" theme. No Baba Yaga influence at all. Trust me, I'm Russian, I know our fairy tales. And Seamus is literally Jack the Ripper of our world's history, by the way. Like, it's the lore.

    Newbie questions

    Or they have the Oxford Magical Theory which allows to auto-include a suit.

    Where to find more lore for TTB?

    That is about the Earth side. But it's very important for the world's history and Fateds are in the middle of events.

    Where to find more lore for TTB?

    Not each one, but "Nythera" My point was about that "Malifaux" is centered on Masters' deeds, and TTB is about (un)common folks and their problems. Fated CAN be a part of metaplot (like in "Nythera") but their ways are simpler. Fatemaster needs less details about Masters' deeds (those are mostly secret things) and more details about everyday life in the city, because that is the most significant part of Fateds' life. Reading "Malifaux" books is not necessary but you can do it for descriptions. For example, it seems that Fated will never visit General-Governor's office, but they can visit some high class clerk's office, and Fatemaster will describe it similar to the Governor's one and Fateds' convoy will say something like "That dude want to copy the General-Governor's style, heh. Good luck with that". Of course, you can run adventures about being the part of the official story. But it seems that it will limit the choices for players.

    Starting Earthside

    Use Corebook 2E Tarot, it's not linked to Malifaux, it's about learning during the Fated's life. Obviously, FM should cut some options for Fated when they start on Earth (like, no Whisper magic theory, no gremlins).
