  • Question about WoD/CoD translation guides?

    Is there any setting material in these guides (stuff like how are the Toreador from VtM and the Daeva from VtR related, how do they interact with each other) or is it all mechanics?

    I don't know about the vampire one but the mage one had a lot of mechanics and guidelines on how to run crossover stories but nothing as detailed as how old views new.

      The Vampire one has some notes on differences in setting presentation (global vs local, tone, presence/absence of metaplot, unifying myth vs multiple myths) and various options for how a clan might be reinterpreted for the other setting, but nothing like what you're asking; basically, it's given to you to decide that sort of thing.

          The Demon Translation Guide has a short chapter presenting several different setting frameworks in which to introduce the Fallen to a Descent game or the Unchained to a Fallen game in a coherent manner, including "Lucifer has built or become a God-Machine and the Unchained are his attempt at a better angelic host" and "the Fallen are demons risen from the nWoD's Inferno." It's about five pages or so with a few paragraphs to each framework presented.

          The Vampire Translation Guide has like a paragraph for each clan or sect/covenant discussing ways it could be integrated into the opposing game's setting, which vary in detail. Some are just "this works well as a bloodline of that," while others pitch a particular concept (like "House Tremere could be a covenant of blood-bound thaumaturgists" and "Clan Mekhet might be an independent clan of spies and opportunists with a secret collective agenda to accelerate Gehenna and use their knowledge to rise to power in the chaos") but without going into details like specific alliances or rivalries.

                I own the Vampire Translation Guide and I wholeheartedly recommend it. While looking at both Masquerade and Requiem I basically have been flipping through that book a thousand times and its only like 50 pages.

                I especially like Thaumaturgy to Requiem and Coils of the Blood to Masquerade but also Masquerade Clans to Requirem, and vis versa.

                So yeah, its very very useful, and also a fun read.

                      Wasn't there a "13 Licks" write-up for converting WoD Vampires to CoD?

                        Was there anything in the Werewolf guide to using Forsaken groups as camps in Apocalypse?


                        She/Her. I am very literal-minded and write very literally. If I don't say something explicitly, please never assume I implied it. The only exception is if I try to joke.
                        My point of view may be different from yours but is equally valid.

                          Yes, for the Pure. For the Forsaken tribes, it only looked at adding them as new Apocalypse tribes.
