Another great episode!
The Understatement of the Year Award goes to Castian for “I have a problem.” 😉
admitting you have a problem is the first step towards recovery
In this SoloShot episode, you all might have noticed that the Vibroknives were doing a ridiculous amount of damage. At the time, we were reading the rules for VICIOUS wrong. But since we BOTH were doing it wrong, we figured it was just an incredibly bloody fight.
I have to wonder, what does Castian have to do to get more than five conflict points at a time? It feels like he should get more for some of the stunts he has pulled so far.
@Fairystail – As long as the problem being admitted to is “Hey, my hand is making me stab happy…” instead of “I’m covered in blood and I need you to cover my tracks for me.”
@Angela – I noticed it, but I thought it went well with the scene. You guys played it off well and it worked thematically with everything going on 🙂
@Jonathan – I’m sure he’s got a boatload of conflict points coming his way when it’s all said and done.
Hey Jonathan V – actually, Castian got a few these last few sessions. He started out at around 40 morality points at the beginning. Now he’s down to 20-something. Sometimes we need to cut some things out because of audio reasons. Sometimes it just an incredibly jarring place to put in a debate about morality points.
So, trust me, Castian has dropped his morality quite a bit from the last couple sessions.
Also, even though the rules don’t call for it, I’m using morality on a bit of a sliding scale, like Vampire: the Masquerade’s Humanity scale. While Castian’s morality is low, it’s a little harder for him to gain corruption. He spent his formative years either enslaved or under the tutelage of the Empire, both of which can skew a person’s sense of right v wrong.
Now, if Castian is able to refuse the allure of the dark side and start bumping up his overall morality score, his moral code is going to be adjusting along the way. Eventually, threatening innocent children will earn a handful of corruption points at a time, but for now it’s just a regular Thursday for Castian.
