In the game I am running, the players through blind luck, perseverance and a fire hose of artha expenditure killed a lesser demon.
One of the players is an aura reading sorcerer. He has alchemy and wanted to see what he could extract from the corpse in the form of antecedents. I know that the Monster Burner is from the prior edition, so I treat it like when I speak Spanish with my Brazilian Portuguese speaking friend. When we are both drunk, we speak to each other in our respective tongues and we more or less communicate. The alcohol and good will overcome any lacunae.
BUT, traits like “Spirit Nature” cost 17 trait points. How can anyone get 17 successes to draw out such an aspect of the demon’s nature?
Am I missing something? Has something been lost in translation between the editions?
