Final Destruction:

Post by MagicRob on Thu Oct 27, 2016 3:51 pm

In all of the WoD systems, Fallen as both the most difficult to destroy, and the only truly eternal beings. After all, they spat in God's eye and basically got a slap on the wrist (I mean, the old man coulda wiped them all out of existence, time and history, and instead locked them in a box even he couldn't get to for a few eons. Comparatively light sentencing). There is a way to permanently destroy one. Well, two really.

The first is almost impossible for a PC to pull off. Basically, one of your original superiors in the Legions, equipped with your True Name, and in your presence, can instruct you to stop existing. Things that have your True Name can make you do terrible, terrible things, and dying is one of them. Don't let people figure out your True Name.

The other is easier, but messier.

A Fallen on Earth is vulnerable. When their mortal host dies, they manifest above the corpse for a turn before being able to whisk away at a bunch of miles a second. In that single turn, any Fallen present can attempt to take a bite out of them.
The attacker breathes in the essence of the defender. The attacker rolls their Faith (but, if they know the defender's TRUE name, they can add the defender's Faith to their roll as well). The Defender rolls their Torment OR Faith, whichever is higher. Difficulty 6 for both sides.

If the Defender wins, it pulls a number of Faith points from the Attacker and is free to float away to find a new host. If the Attack wins, the Defender is destroyed forever and for all time. In this case, the victor rolls their Faith at a difficulty of 6. Each success is a Faith DOT that they can use to further empower themselves. These points can be used to gain freebies, memories of the War or before times, or even raise your Faith / Lores.

While this doesn't have the noticeable affects to auras like diablory, this is far worse. Fallen very rarely condone of such things, and destroying one of the timeless is destroying a piece of the fading divinity in this world. One of the reasons why the Ravagers are so feared is their willingness to use such tactics.
