I looked at each one, with two things in mind: How significant do my Mormon folk magician people consider this act? And how intimate does this act require you to be with your subject? Thus anointing with sacred earth and calling by name are the big guns.
Quote from: DamienNeil on September 16, 2005, 04:22:26 AMI just realized where some of my confusion about ceremony comes from. Ceremony is the only situation where fallout varies from raise to raise without escalation of some form.Usually, it's simple: non-physical d4s, escalate to physical and d6s, pull out a weapon (not necessarily an escalation, but you roll the weapon's dice) for d8s, escalate to gunfighting and d10s.
QuoteYour character can perform an entire ceremony, including many ceremonial elements, as a single See or Raise, or each See and Raise can be a single element of ceremony. Choose whichever better serves the pace of the conflict.
Quote from: lumpley on September 16, 2005, 09:45:26 AMThe fallout dice you inflict always depend on the exact specifics of this very raise. If we're in the middle of a gunfight and you raise me "I shoot the gun out of your hand" and I take the blow, I take d6 fallout. Fallout and escalation aren't locked together quite the way you seem to think.
