    It might help to think of each Sept as a separate city-state. Combined they make up the "Garou Nation" but that's really only because they share the same Litany have (theoretically) have the same goals.

    I'm going to use this for my quest, so I rather not get into details. There may be players on the board. Also, I haven't gotten the Red Talon sept nailed down yet. This plot, if I decide to do it will come at the last part of the quest.

    I suppose I can give you some details. They may change.
    Oh, I was just curious to understand how this had played out. No need to possibly compromise your storyline for my curiosity.

    This setup made the most sense, but I realized when someone said "pulled them from their car" that it had never actually been stated how this happened.

    I quoted this in the other thread, but here's a slightly expanded one (to include levels 2 and 3):
    Originally posted by Players Handbook 2nd Ed
    Rank 2
    Average Population: From 8 to 15 Garou
    Average Bawn: 200-350 acres
    Maximum Moon Bridge Distance: 2,000 miles
    Gauntlet: 4
    Advantages: Relatively little politicking; packs can acquire healthy totem spirits; may have a chance to fill a minor Sept position.
    Disadvantages: Still not much raw power; small Bawn for living space; still cramped for Lupus; few defenders if attacked.

    Rank 3
    Average Population: From 10 to 20 Garou
    Average Bawn: 350-800 acres
    Maximum Moon Bridge Distance: 3,000 miles
    Gauntlet: 3
    Advantages: Source of significant power; relatively easy to access spirits and mentors; reliable allies within Sept mates
    Disadvantages: AlMost no chance for inexperienced Garou to fill any Sept positions; defence is tricky due to larger size of Bawn; enough Garou for politics and in fighting; large enough to come to the Wyrm’s attention; difficult to expand or maintain properly.

    This setup nails that perfectly. It sounds like it will be a lot of fun to play through.

    if you KNOW theirs more going on then meets the eye...

    Anyone played Yakuza 1? it has something like that early on.
    Haven't played that game, but I would imagine the person would be a lot quieter about it. Better to keep that to yourself than alienate yourself when speaking to others. I can see them trying to figure out exactly what's going on. They will be going it alone, and should be justifiably paranoid, the more they learn. There will still be plenty of time to doubt themselves, but I don't think it will be as glaring as with more "normal" people. Knowing they are alone in their search might even feed their motivation to find out more.

    Those are the types of people that can go on to become dangerous to the Supernatural communities.

      early in the game the protaganist frames himself for murder (to shield a guy who murdered someone for sexually asaulting his sister.

      Well one cop could see the guy making a confession was covering for someone... but his superiors decided to just call it a day and conclude the investigation.

      Not sure if he shows up again or not...only made it so far.

        ​Agree. Accidents happen (especially in a chaotic environment where everybody has weapons and combatants and civvies are all mixed in with each other), but there's a massive difference between an accident by a 19-year-old PFC, hyped up on adrenaline and scared out of his mind, and cold-blooded murder. Civilians have (understandably, in my opinion) a hard time conceptualizing that making good decisions is far easier when nobody is trying to kill you while you're making it.

        ​Dragging civilians out of their cars and shooting them in the head is a war crime... eating them is probably more appropriately dealt with by assigning the offender a nice, padded cell.

              Since we are already off topic...

              Is a Lupus Garou eating a human even considered Cannibalism? Likewise, would a Homid Garou eating a Wolf being considered cannibalism?

                    The title is Outcasts: A Player's Guide to the Pariahs, so you could call it either.

                      Yes. Because Garou (even Lupus) are half-human and half-Wolf (and half Spirit. Garou aren't good at math )

                        an effective theruge will often find Geometry invaluable for some rites...

                        but yes, in general your right
