"It can't be anything you already need, hm, in the way you already need it. You could need, say, the sound of your heartbeat, separate from needing blood to circulate through your body. Ambient dust would work."

Permalink

"I can't normally hear my heartbeat - would it matter if I was deafened or something? Can I require my left kidney - would that be a problem if I had to get resurrected -"

Permalink

"If you need the specific object that is your current left kidney then that would in fact be a problem if you got resurrected."

"The... color... of my eyes? Locks me into brown eyes but that seems fine."

Permalink

"--Yeah, I think I can wriggle that in. You can have fourteen points for needing your eyes not to change away from that color for longer than you can hold your breath."

Permalink

"Damn, I'm on a roll here. Will this limit my contact lens selection for dealing with the hyper-vision?"

Permalink

"Technically a little but mostly they aren't actually tinted."

Permalink

"But like, the underlying color of my eyes is the same - will it be a problem if I get, like, blood in my eyes -"

Permalink

"Witch magic runs less on belief and perception than wizard magic does but not none. The point of color contacts is to change your eye color; the point of blood in your eyes is 'hm nope didn't want that.'"

Permalink

"Alrighty. No cosmetic contacts for me, for a whopping fourteen points. What next?"

Permalink

"Addiction if you wanted to do that separate from requirement even though vitamin C isn't an option; the one that makes mundane animals hate you; the one that makes you vulnerable to water, iron, or fire."

Permalink

"Addictions, addictions... how bad an addiction are we talking about here, and can I eventually wean off it like I could if I took up coffee?"

Permalink

"In order for it not to bother you you'd have to accommodate it at least a bit once a day; and no, it's embedded into your magic, not part of the natural homeostasis of your biology."

Permalink

"How bothersome?"

Permalink

"Hmm...are you one of those people who gets cranky when you haven't slept well?"

Permalink

"...I'm not sure I'd know. It's been a while since I've slept well."

Permalink

"Unfortunate. Well, going without for a day or so puts you at roughly that level of got up on the wrong side of the bed disturbance."

Permalink

"I guess I could chew a stick of gum every day, is that unhealthy enough?"

Permalink

"Yeah! --It doesn't have to be actively unhealthy, just not perceived as actively healthy. You could pick butter and have a slice of buttered toast for breakfast most mornings and that would also be fine."

Permalink

"Eh, if in five hundred years it is illegal to farm cows for some reason... gum I can make in a lab if I've gotta."

Permalink

"Reasonable. That'll get you four points, then, and that leaves you with one point left below the maximum."

Permalink

"And if I leave that one unhandled point in the current power points it will not affect me long-term because I can still 'grow'?"

Permalink

"Right! --Also I'm planning to offer all my warlocks a fairly high-Favor quest for participating in the honeypot trap, one way or another."

Permalink

"Then yeah, unless there's something else really cheatable I think I'm good. If these divide neatly into a thirty and a twenty-nine."

Permalink

"Yeah. I'm guessing you don't care much which thing goes where."
