Okay, so basically it would depend on the Demon your character had a pact with. Pact magic would probably be closely associated with the patron themself, so if the Demon has a particular theme or domain associated with them, you could base their pact magic around that. For instance, a demon associated with war might have pact magic that creates cursed weapons, or a demon associated with misfortune might manipulate luck. Really there’s a lot of options. If you’ve got any ideas for the Demon I can help brainstorm some ideas.


Well in that case I'll pm you some of the skills when I hash some out. I don't have any at the moment but I'll have them soonish, probably.

@DrowsyPangolin Changed her as requested and I've added Control.
Phantosia was something I wasn't sure of to be honest. I was split between that or (I forgot the word) sound hallucinations. Making someone hear something that wasn't there. I'm having this scene in my head with her being a master and fighting someone and as she's about to lose, make the person hear the voices of their loved ones or those who have departed by combining thought reading and that ability.

One more question, what kind a magic would a magi need to know in order to influence luck, without it being pact magic?

Anyway, it's done. Accepted? 😃

@Timemaster Yep yep, everything looks good! Feel free to add her to the characters tab. And I dunno, sounds would be a cool take as well, but there’s something unique about smells, it’s just the last thing you’d expect.

Oh, and stuff relating to luck with be something like “probability manipulation” and would probably be it’s own school to itself.

What school would a shaman controlling animals fall under? Pact magic seems like it deals with higher entities than just beasts, but golemancy implies artificial constructs that weren't already alive.

Well the way the GM pitched it pact magic lets you use the magic/powers of the stuff you make a pact with. So if it's a magic animal pact magic works, otherwise probably thought manipulation so you can talk to them and stuff.

@Scribe of Thoth It would still fall under pact magic in the majority of cases I think, you can make pacts with all sorts of entities, not just Demons and such, sorry if that wasn’t clear! There might be a few instances where thought manipulation/hypnosis could also work though. Just depends on the situation!

Also, a reminder that the list for schools of magic isn’t comprehensive, you guys are more than welcome to come up with your own if the options in the list don’t quite fit.

Oh yeah I just remembered. Since this is steampunk does that mean there's trains and stuff?

@DrowsyPangolin Here's a sheet for a wannabe witchfinder. Do tell if you want anything changed or clarified.

@Scribe of Thoth Looks great! You can add him to the character list whenever you like.

@ShwiggityShwah Sorry to hear that, I understand though. Feel free to come on back at a later date if you get some free time later on, we’ll always be accepting new characters.

@DrowsyPangolin I'll just leave this here. If 2 characters are accepted, then great, if not, use him as an NPC or if anyone needs a character...take him 😉

Right, here he is. Maybe too many spells, but anyway, feel free to tell me if something's wrong with the sheet.

Hmm, I can't figure out a good backstory for my character. Might have to sit this one out.

Huh, two Mortimers, what are the odds?

@Timemaster Multiple characters are fine! So, a couple things: Do keep in mind that practicing necromancy in the open is kind of a no-go, so he'll need to be careful where he uses some of those spells. Secondly, if you wouldn't mind, could you PM some information about what the staff does? Lastly, with how his backstory turned out, would you say it's likely he was directed to the Academy by one of the surviving Witchfinders?

@Lord of Evil Looks great, just one small quibble with a detail in the short history: summoning Demons is almost always super dangerous, both because the process can be very volatile and because some Demons are world-threatening, so Richard's father probably wouldn't have managed to summon multiple Demons physically, though communing with them would certainly be an option, and then maybe an actual summoning when he disappeared. Secondly, and this is super minor, but not all Demons come from the same plane at least as far as anyone can tell, so its likely that Mortimer's political schemes would've either occurred in the human world or another plane besides his own, which actually lines up pretty well since most Demons travel between planes because their own homeplane was destroyed, so maybe some of Mort's schemes reached world-ending proportions. This could cause some fun issues if he happens to encounter another Demon. But other than that everything looks good! If you're cool with making some slight tweaks to the history you're welcome to add him to the character tab.

@Hammerman I'm more than willing to help you come up with one if you want!

Mort hasn't actually done anything he said, he was just talking a lot of shit. I'll fix up the details though.

@Lord of Evil I wondered if that might be the case, can't ever trust Demons! And as long as you guys are okay with them having the same name it's fine by me.
