  • Final Words

    Hello!

    I've been running a TT WtA game (now in its 3rd year) leading up to the Apocalypse.

    I had a thought, and I wondered what others might think of it.

    You're the Garou. It's the end (or at least you believe whole heartedly it is the end) what would your final words be?

    As in, if your words could be left behind for others to find what would you want to be remembered? What would be the most important things of your breed, auspice and of course, Tribe, that you would want others to know?

    Any thoughts what different tribes especially might want remembering that was the core of them if they only had one speech, one story, or one moving howl to be remembered by?

      I hadn't considered that at all from a possible GW perspective. I like it. I'm probably going to use it

      Thanks!

        Today's final words become tomorrow's cautionary Tale told to cubs.

          It absolutely could be. Or that could certainly be the hope, that in the future there might be cubs (if there can be after the Apocalypse comes). So what cautionary tale would each Tribe, breed or auspice share if they could only record or keep one stored tale or explanation of what they were, why they were and why they believed it important?

            Interesting line of questioning! My answer would really depend on my character and their path to that point. I don't think most of my characters would quite make it that far! However, one of my all-time favorite books ends with this thought: "This isn't the end, you know. Nothing ever is, nothing ever will be--not even Judgment Day." I never applied that to WtA before, but I can think of one of my characters who would probably have that point of view. It may be fitting that he's a Ragabash.

              I can't help but imagine that a Glass Walker's last words might be the same ones I'd say if I find myself abruptly dying - "Please format my hard drive and don't look at what's on it before you do."

                Thank you. Yeah I found it really interesting a thought to question too. Especially as it would likely depend on the individual chatacter. With the added of weight of doing justice to the whole of their Breed, Auspice and Tribe as being the one, the only one who may leave the final words for all of them that had ever been.

                I was thinking something short but sweet for each due to their being so much of worth that keeping to the core would be a prominent thing to leave.

                like

                Homid: we were born among humankind, lived their lives, their ways, spoke their tongues until veil came down from our eyes and we learnt the world was not as it seemed. It was more. Apart of us was always them although we seemed so far apart. We walked among them, lived and fought around them. Now we go to die for them and they will never know, for that was how we kept them safe from the horrors behind the dark veil.

                Lupus: We walked on four. We learned instincts and the primal before we knew of man. We learned to howl and hunt before speech. We kept to the wilds, we kept as family. We go. We hunt the end of things. No more howls for tomorrow.

                Metis: We were the sins of our parents. We bore the shame of our own kinds. Carried our broken, deformed and mad as we cared and kept to the heart of our kind. We are proof their is a place for all born to serve gaia. We go to die side by side of those born of wolf and homid. not below, nor behind, not out of sight or mind no longer. The wyrm may have claimed our parents hearts, but our hearts belong to the Nation, to gaia, to luna.

                  I assume a Glasswalker would have some sort of automated process for that. "Spirit, if I die, wipe my data!" Less of a risk for your pack mates to find all your furry porn. :P

                    Until some time ago I did collect epic or memorable quotes from movies, serial and anime, to use in my chronicles, so I got something (note that I had translated all of them in my language and I'm mostly re-translating them, so they may not use the same words as the originals)..

                    let's see if I can find something interesting... (there're a lot of quotes from Babylon5 because is epic as hell)

                    "As long as you're not dead, you're still alive" - Bonegnawers

                    "Wake up, now is time to howl at the moon" - Red Talons (quote from Crowley of Supernatural)

                    "The gift of Time. The gift of life. The gift of wisdom. The gift of light. For these things we are thankful. For these things we pray." - Black Furies (quote from G'kar of Babylon5)

                    "The universe is run by the complex interweaving of three elements: Energy, matter, and enlightened self-interest." - Glasswalker (quote from G'kar of Babylon5)

                    "The world speaks in many languages but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope " - Children of Gaia (quote from Sheridan of Babylon5)

                    "We look forward to the day when we will have cleaned up the land from our hated enemies and carved their bones into little flutes for our cubs. It's only a little dream of ours." - Shadowlords (quote from G'kar of Babylon5)

                    and of course, this
                    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RaSmassvv4w
                    should be reworked, but is an impressive speech you can make at the start of a battle
