Using the PDF quickstart, I have some questions lingering about a couple of issues. If they are addressed in the rules, I'd love any page references so I can see for myself where they were covered, otherwise a basic answer'll do!
1. Force construction: any limitations of cross sub-faction building (cults, caste, etc): Can Ice, Air, generic or Blood, Toxic, basic, etc, work together?
2. Psychogenetics and other foci abilities are pretty abstract in the language presented (the Casting rules reference "physical attacks follow normal Combat rules but Example 2 references a psychogenetic "Provoke Ridicule" that very much does not seem "physical"....). I think I've got it all worked out, but would love a run-through for clarification.
scenario 1: my Father Curwin has PS 18, casting Unclean's Stigma (tn PS (4)) at a Dragyri Whisper (Df 3, PS 1 that's 3.5" away. What is my TN, and how might the Whisper resist it.
Scenario 2: My Tribal Father with PS 18 is casting Rooted Fear with TN: PS ( against the same Whisper at 6" away.
Those issues will get us more up to speed and hit the ground running.
