    Will promise to not dig up holes, break your windows, raid your pantries and steal your shinies (maybe).

    Quite a rich fox xD
    The sequences that are relevant to the RP are 9 to 4. If a pathway is lacking abilities in those sequences, there is no way for us to properly fill in the abilities without creating possible conflicts with the original pathway lore. So I would recommend to avoid using the pathways with missing information, but you can always try to convince me of making exceptions.

    Good point, gonna switch to Error pathway to make it more in line with characteristics. I can actually become a Parasite now, life goals reached.

    Is it recommended to read a bit of LotM before making a character?

    Oh, it is by no means necessary. The thing taken from LotM is the power and power progression as well as the risks it brings (Loss of Control, will be properly explained later on).

    The setting itself is not connected, so having read it is not necessary.

    Funnily enough though, the Seer pathway fits Kitsune quite well

    Every pathway has its own strengths. I personally am the most afraid of the spectator and marauder pathways due to certain reasons.

    I can assure you that my understanding of the system totally changed after I started read the novel. It's very not intuitive.

    Only if you wish to take on the Mutual assured destruction challenge.

    But yeah, it sounds like a plan if no one adopts my character before you finish.
