I think it's actually supposed to be severe blurring of the blue and green channels (the ones that are being reflected), to the point Rick Astley is completely unrecognizable.

Which begs a...

It's actually a slightly bit more complex than that. Mk II reroutes beam B through an antired filter and around the red filter, so Ba is red and Bb is everything else. Instead of getting an aura the...

No, you have a separate system for each eye. The straight light goes through the one way mirror, while the reflected light bounces off it and recombines with the red light. The two beams will be out...

Actually, you're splitting the beam in half. So one half gets the first app applied to it, the other half gets reflected, and then the second app applied to it. Then you add both streams together...

I agree. It's only inconsistent because the writers say it is. They probably also don't get that inconsistency leads to hacks. Building on the vampire goggles a little, if you split the beam, run one...

EDIT: I realize in retrospect that I'm kind of meshing 'science' as "observe-predict-test" and 'Science' as "how and why things work". So yeah. I'm trying to argue that with WoD there are points...

Just because something is inconsistent doesn't mean every part of it is inconsistent. Or the mechanics could change without changing the outcome. Or there could be no mechanics at all. etc etc etc....

AW: you can't do that, because the setting is inconsistent. Nothing you do will make it consistent. It's really not worth arguing.

I think we have mutually conflicting definitions of magic.

Okay, so it's a bad example. Mea Culpa. Even so, magic doesn't necessarily need to be inconsistent. The alchemists in the past (and IIRC FMA) assumed a coherent set of rules they were trying to find....

*Coughs* That's WoD-specific. All that scientific rigor requires is complete consistency. Lots of settings have consistent magic. Dresden Files (the book, not the RPG) comes pretty close, and Nobilis...

I think the entire discussion is hinging around the hidden question: "Is WoD consistent or not?"

Is there still good reason to argue if we just accept that it's not consistent? It's not...

Out of sheer curiosity, if you have a powerful video camera situated a mile away, could it accurately record a vampire? Or does their "haha no reflections" thing extend out to infinity?
