  • I have no doubt the Fenrir would think the matter as silly, but it is HOW it was said, again. It is very directly drawing reaction from the readers, as with all other WW5 content. Instead of being vague and leaving the moral grays there, they are egging the readers to react, not think. Like "Oh, she kills Trump voters, I agree/Disagree with that!", or "The Techies don't what refugees! That is good/bad!".

    It is not letting there be a space for the reader to look beyond the basic issue and the whole picture, instead it is drawing on on-the-spot reactions. That is...

  • Given how common that is in character backstories (not a good thing, mind), I hardly paid it any more attention than other awful things that the fiction presented. And if people wanna make the case of pedophilic rape in WoD? Clanbook Baali has that more than covered in its starting fiction.


    Back to the topic, though, it isn't that the things presented in the new things are in themselves awful. It is -how- they are presented that makes them so bad. Avery's badness is how her crimes and her tests are -all- tied to her being trans, or thing vaguedly relating to things most trans...

  • Well, this IS revised XD

    But really, to me it is just really poor choice given Ethan Heals the Past and the focus on racial issues the book presents. Everything else is so serious and focused on IRL issues and then, white haired frost clawed ravewolf....

  • For me, it isn't really the source. Just that the purest of the pure wendigo can have white hair and blue eyes, among a tribe that is defined by their poc history and ties. In addition of being rave machines.

    Like, if other purebreeds did the same, I'd be game. But when only that does it, it is kinda suspect for me.

    started a topic Revised Wendigo Purebreed WTF

    Revised Wendigo Purebreed WTF

    Out of all the things WtA, only Mari Cabrah'sstrange fur colours can beat the wtf that is the revised Wendigo purebreed.

    Read and ponder;



    And if ANYONE has an idea how it ended up like that, please explain....

  • There is a difference in being edgy and trying to incite a reaction. And that is where the new stuff is failing, more than anything else. For example, Avery (the trans vampire mentioned above) kills Trump supporters. Not 'politicians she doesn't like' or 'conservative assholes', just outright saying she kills those who voted for Trump. That to me is inciting a kneejerk reaction for the sake of it, without allowing the players to fill in the blanks. Also, boy does it date the game. With WtA, it is similar, Fenrir and Furies not caring about sjw or such things.

    With the WtA example,...

  • Nothing in character creation states that Bone Gnawers don't accept purebred cubs, just that they don't have the pb after joining. Granted, how the Gnawers are written is pretty suspeect (made a thread about it here).

    Black Fox I think you are thinking about it too mechanically. Most rejected cubs join Gnawers because after being kicked out of their tribe, Gnawers are the first to offer them kindness and shelter. Remember that these cubs most likely knew the Nation only through the lens of the tribe they were born to, and being rejected meant they felt shame and were lost. While low...

  • Why would they reject a garou with PB? The revised tb even has a merit specifically for having noble blood....

  • This is, without a doubt, the best WtA novel I have read. Easily better than Silver Crown and beating Poison Tree by a freaking landslide. Why is it? Because unlike so many WtA novels, Song of the UnMaking doesn't require you to figure out what rules of WtA the author is using or discarding. This was a huge issue for me in Poison Tree, where things like Rank, Gifts, Rites and such were sidelined heavily to the point where the Litany being used could have changed the story significantly.

    In Song of the UnMaking, you get Rage being treated as a real issue for garou, Rank matters, Litany...

  • Kind of a minor thing, but could the Hsien cat please not be called 'meow'? Nekomata or any other actual term would feel less dumb.

    Oh yes, the issue was that it ate itself up. When things got so bad that the execution of nobility (not criminals, just for being high class) was a daily event that ladies came to watch and knit by, things went a bit far. I suggest you read Scarlet Pimpernel for a fictional depiction of the issues.

    For my impressions of the book itself? I love LOVE the splat art, really good depictions of the kiths....
