    Yeah, the upside of the new Pilgrimage stat is it's fairly easy to use it to represent any kind of journey/transformation.

      Remember what you've been told about bringing your homebrew outside of the thread for it. Last warning.

        I was just making a general statement regarding the flexibility of the stat, since people were already praising it.

Honestly just about any Refinement that isn't Aurum can be spun in such a way that a Promethean following it takes a dim view of mankind, and to be honest even an Aurum could have such a disposition and choose to emulate what they feel humanity "should" be rather than what it is.
          Aurum doesn't require you to romanticize humanity. In fact, such a thing is likely to be an impediment. The Roles in Aurum are uniquely suited to being involved in organized crime as they require you to be in human relationships. Running a mob would fulfill the Leader Role, being a member of a gang would be a Companion Role, and working for a crime boss would fit the Follower Role. Aurum is a "get your hands dirty" Refinement. You don't just watch humanity, you need to get in there and experience it.

            Proving this point, a player in my current game got his "Leader" role by killing the head of his cult and taking it's place. The cult sacrifices humans on a monthly basis. He's not intending to stop this practice
