  • Wild Hunt: Gangrel Now Available on Storytellers Vault (2E Requiem Clan Book)

    I know a lot of you have been waiting for this…

    Wild Hunt: Gangrel: https://www.storytellersvault.com/pr...iate_id=321925

    We've met before, but this is the last time.
    You owed a debt of blood the moment you stepped into my woods, Little Red,
    and the Big Bad Wolf never forgets what she's due.
    What, you think that's no fair?
    Oh pet, there are no rules but the ones I make with tooth and claw.
    I always play fair, though. The game's no fun if it's easy!
    So have a headstart, Little Red.
    Let's see if you can make it home to Mother.
    — Moth

    The Gangrel are death in the flesh, apex predators of the Damned. But that fact earns them few friends among Kindred or kine, and as their isolation grows, the Beast finds new ways to slip through their skin. Now, for the first time in over 13 years, run free again with Clan Gangrel.

    Wild Hunt is a complete guide to the Gangrel for Vampire: The Requiem Second Edition, with updates and expansions to their original clan book, Savage and Macabre. It includes:
    • Ten Savage bloodlines: Old soldiers like the Childer of the Morrigan, Dead Wolves, Mystikoi, and Oberlochs, ready to take up the fight once more, along with fresh meat from the ranks of the Baetyl, Cerrid, Daimonion, Verlice, Wickers, and Yarilo.
    • The secrets of the Risen Beast, the dark passenger Gangrel can awaken to become the most savage ones of all.
    • A pack of wolves to keep you on your toes, including three rabid ghoul families, four horrors, and two vicious covenants, featuring the return of the Brides of Dracula, revving their engines in the face of the end times.
    • Exciting new fiction from the Chronicles of Darkness: Chicago setting.
    • Devotions, Merits, banes, and more tools for players and Storytellers alike!
    If you’re a Gangrel fan (or just a Requiem fan in general), this one’s for you. This is the culmination of almost two years of work, and I’m thrilled to finally have this project complete (and I’m looking very forward to what comes next). Not only have we got ten new and updated bloodlines and three ghoul families, we’ve got four new horrors, two covenants, and dozens of new Merits and Devotions. I’m extremely proud of this book, and I hope it lives up to the expectations we set with Sin Again, False Gods, Better Feared, Strange Shades, and other supplements.

    Speaking of Strange Shades, we’ve added a bunch of content to that supplement. It no longer relies on Geist for the Shadow Cult system, and we’ve added a whole new Horror! The other clan books have also had some tweaks and new art added.

    I haven't done any previews for this due to not a lot of time on my hands lately, but watch this space for excerpts!

    Here are a few bundle links. Because of the way DTRPG works, if you’ve bought some of these books previously, this is a good way to get a discount on the new release.

    Not todeviate away from Wild Hunt, but regarding updated content on Shades, do we just need to redownload our copy to get that?

    Once I get some cash, we'll get on the blood trail lickety split.

        Yep, just re-download! The old version is also there.

        EDIT: To pull back the curtain slightly, I felt there wasn't enough new stuff to constitute a separate release, but I did jack up the price a bit. Which means previous purchasers get a little retroactive discount!

            From Dusk till Dawn always comes to mind, and Near Dark is pretty quintessentially Gangrel.

                  Got to love a treatment that regards City Gangrel as authentic and valid members of the clan. Looking forward to digging into this further later tonight.

                  Thank you for the bundle and the Mekhet updates, as well. This has been a big labor of love, and you deserve to know that it's seen.

                    It is finally here! I have only skimmed it so far, but this is probably my favorite. But then again, the Gangrel are my favorite, so that probably would have been the case anyway. Also, the art for the bloodlines is absolutely killer! I especially love the Oberloch and Wicker illustrations.

                    Plus, I can cross illustrating Count Fucking Dracula off my bucket list now. That was the absolutely the coolest part of working on this book for me. Love that guy.

                      If you can believe it, the parallel was a lot closer in the author's first draft. I loved the reference, but I had to file off a loooot of the edges, lol.

                          I'm still reading though this, but as I expected based on the rest in the series it's a great book so far. The one thing that has stuck out to me so far as confusing, though, is that the Yarilo dropped Resilience in favor of Celerity. It seems like a strange choice all things considered. Regardless, it might be my favorite bloodline in the book. It's so hard to choose.

                            So, funny enough, the Yarilo did in fact go through a few Discipline combo iterations. We always felt they had to keep Animalism, Dominate, and Protean, for obvious reasons, but the last one we went back and forth on. Originally, they had Obfuscate, but it didn't really fit with their themes, ultimately. Plants aren't really stealthy (or, most plants aren't). I also felt they should have a physical power. Resilience felt less appropriate mostly due to their weakness: they shouldn't be good at absorbing fire damage if that's an aspect of their bane. Vigor was a possibility, but it still didn't really put me in mind of plant life. Ultimately, we went with Celerity because it implies a kind of delicacy in the bloodline: they're fast, but they're fragile, yet they know their forest so well that they can practically teleport around their domains, picking off their prey from the vines.

                            And of course, you're more than free to adjust as you see fit for your chronicle! That's just how we came down on things.

                              The Narya, a race of ancient vampire-like god-kings with powerful biokinetic and inanimate transmutation abilities who nearly came to rule the world, but were cursed with sterility - they reproduce like mortals, but any child of theirs is apparently a normal human, though a plot hook is a descendant of one starts to metamorphosize into a full one.

                              They even have torpor in statue armor.
