  • So, anyone have any news on this game? XD

    Even if I don't agree with its story, i'd rather not see THIS too go under.

  • If you need to resort to Wyrmy gifts to face SAD or DNA agents, you are doing it wrong. To resort to Wyrmy gifts, the situation would have to be dire enough that it doesn't -matter- that you corrupt your soul. Garou can outwit human agents without selling their souls....

    This is very true, it is also something I wish people would feel brave doing. Yes, your culture influences a lot from you, especially cultures under threat like the First Nations people. But that isn't all they are. Some might even on purpose reject it.

    I still love my ronin theurge with PB5 wendigo (looks, none of the oomph.) He is more scientific minded than spontaneous and his faith has a christian bend to it. But that doesn't magically take away the racism he faces and the assumptions people make of him. He faces the exact same crap that he would if he had been raised in his native...

    I think you have the whole Ainu thing backwards. People possibly will play more of them, if they are tied to a certain tribe. I mean, how common are ainu characters in your games? XD

    Aside from that, forcefully including them is hardly what is happening. Uktena have been stated to include groups that try to keep to their ways despite oppression and ainu fit that to a tee. As do sami or any russian people. WtA has always been a game that thrives on discussing minority rights, so including lesser known people to the table is not forcing it. It is showcasing them to people who wouldn't...

    Changing Ways is not the best to me, because it included unneeded themes (such as Furies and Red Talons kidnapping male homids to have sex with their wolf kin) and when it tried to discuss homosexuality in the metis chapter, it felt really demeaning. In a "Look, they are OK with the gayz" way, rather than discussing how the tribe would see it broadly. It felt like it was constantly yelling at homophobic readers how -wrong- they were. It didn't feel grounded in the setting.

    What I fear the most, is that the BNS MET book serves as the groundwork for the new edition. It is...

    I mean, it already freaks out people passively. Rage 3 is 30% of the population avoiding you or something like that, so not a small number. Plus most garou change when they are early teens, so they typically lack any higher education. Not that trying to go to school when you freak people out, have insane trouble keeping your temper and CONSTANTLY smelling/seeing/feeling the wrongs around you, is easy.

    But that is not what players want, they don't want their ahroun to be a moocher being supported by their kinfolk. They don't want their character to be without a cool job or an army...

    I think people are misunderstanding what being told not to use content entails. I think, if most of the people here saying they don't want to leave content out, were asked by their gaming group to do so, they would.

    Otherwise, I'm just picturing someone throwing a fit over not getting to use child murder fomor out of the blue XD


    As for Rage/Gnosis, I think Rage is EXTREMELY well discussed in the books. Most players just cannot deal with the Curse....

    A player who doesn't want to explore the concepts found in WtA won't join a WtA game. If they are asking you to not deal with certain topics, there is a very good reason for that. You don't know their history or reasons why they feel they cannot deal with subjects in a safe setting, but you should respect that they are brave enough to speak about it.

    Roleplaying is meant to be fun for everyone, dredging up old traumas is the polar opposite of fun for people....

    Especially, since that has been the game from its very inception. For all the Captain Planet jibes against WtA, at least it has never stopped outright acknowledging that stuff needs to be done and there is no magic bullet to fix the world or its issues. One of my favourite things about it HAS been that the struggle with the american tribes is REALLY complicated and no true fix can be ever found for it without some huge introspection by Fianna, Silver Fangs, Fenrir and Children of Gaia.


    To the LTGBA+ and WtA thing, I have to admit that Chaging Ways' Metis section pretty much...
