  • Chronicles of Darkness Homebrew Hub

    So, since I love the new Dread Powers system, I thought that I'd make a thread where we could post any Dread Powers that we invent, in order to create a hub for useful monster powers that Storytellers could use.

    While I doubt that we could see the same favorable treatment as the Vampire Homebrew Hub, I would still consider it some help, even if it gets lost in the mists of time amidst the ancient posts of the forum.

    So have some Dread Powers:

    Forge Spirit
    The Horror can create Spirits with a roll assigned by the Storyteller, taking a -1 to -5 penalty for every dot that it wishes to assign to the Spirit. These Spirits start with a Power, Finesse and Resistance of 1, and a single Numen, they are considered to be of Rank 1, and new Numina may be purchased at a cost of 2 dots per Numen. These Spirits only last for a single Scene, and it costs 2 Willpower for the Horror to create them.

    Countermagic
    The Horror can destroy magical effects by paying Willpower equal to the higher of the Potency or dot rating of the effect and making a roll assigned by the Storyteller. A success removes the effect for a Scene, and an Exceptional Success lowers the cost by a point of Willpower.

    Now it's your turn!

    Definitely supporting this. Especially when I get my own copy of the system, as well.

    In fact, I'm half-tempted to set up a Forsaken Homebrew Hub, with all the interesting Werewolf material that's coming out of the woodwork.

      Is this general Homebrew, or do you want it restricted to Dread Powers (for cohesiveness)?

        That... Could be a great idea!

        I could make a new thread and call it something like Chronicle of Darkness Homebrew Hub?

        Or just use the current thread.

          <shrug> One thread containing all types of homebrew can get very crowded and disorganized. Also makes it hard to find anything specific.

            I'd point to Pendragon's Homebrew Hub as an example to prove otherwise.... But then, there's the Requiem Homebrew Hub and the Index of Fan-Made Changeling Material.

              Yes, but those are links to external documents and specifically about one gameline, as opposed to the whole CofD.

                It's much easier to maintain a cohesive hub when you're the only one contributing to it. Threads, especially without anyone to curate all the content into one post, are too cluttered to function. Perhaps an external doc, with links to posts and a table of contents is the way to go.

                  This sounds like a good idea, I do not possess the doc skills to actually make a table of contents myself though...
