89157Z Posted June 28, 2012 Report Share Posted June 28, 2012 Those who study deterministic machines too much often tend to come into the belief that all the world operates this way. Combining basic knowledge of Natural Philosophy and Astrology with advanced knowledge in Clockworks, those who feel the Spinning of the Gears can look at the world with an absolutely grounded perspective that boosts the Intelligence of the individual by a point and makes them more Observant. The conviction that the people around you are mechanistic does no favors for your social skills; you lose a point of Charm while you're under the sway of the Spinning of the Gears. This worldview is not threatened by stress or fatigue... but a focus on Society, on Social Skills, or on Befriending others will tend to make it feel untenable. It also isn't compatible with extreme emotional states, be they positive or negative, although those tend to suppress the Spinning of the Gears only temporarily. -<>- A proposed emotional state to add to the game. I was finding myself disappointed that knowledge of Clockwork couldn't cause any kind of emotion. I don't know why I felt that way, but I hope it is a pleasing inspiration to others.
