    replied to The D&D thread
    Ah, i understand better now. For me wanting to play an avenger mean wanting to play a divine-executioner. The paladin oath of vengeance works but (for me) so would an rogue assassin with the acolyte background. So when i say the paladin oath of vengeance is the 5e version of the avenger i mean that both are the divine sanctioned executioner and no more than that.
    I didn't put much thought in the mechanics when i gave my answer. In that respect i agree that there is very little of the original 4e classes in 5e.

    As for the Valor Bard as the descendent of the warlord. I gotta...

    They are already there as far as i can tell.
    Warlord is the Fighter Battle Master, Avenger is the Paladin Oath of Vengeance and Warden is the ... uh ... hum ... maybe in Xanathar's guide (i havent had the time to read it).

    Unless i misunderstood your meaning, in which case i apologise....

  • Hum yeah i noticed that too. I got to say i'm not impressed with the Needle. There is nothing there i can see that is original for changeling. The Thread thing is alright tho....

  • Just finished the manuscript. And i like it.
    I like especially what was done with the pledge system and i really like sealing. I was thinking of how to introduce in play the trope of fairies not being allowed to say something untrue and i think sealings will help. Changeling would be used to the idea that everything they say could become binding and so would carefully word their statements so that they always have some wiggle room.

    I kinda wished they added special environmental tilts in the hedge section. But its not really a problem, i'll just continue using the Lair traits...

    May i ask what are you unhappy with in the new edition?

    I read the first edition book out of interest and i remember that there was things i liked alot (the transhuman aspects) and things i disliked alot (mainly the mechanics and everything about the jovian junta). Then i heard there was a 2nd edition in the work so i gave myself a mental note to check when its out....

  • Concerning the kiths, i dont really mind the small number (espacially since we are supposed to be given the mechanics to create more and another book entirely on kiths).

    But my questions here is that in your opinions, in regards to kith, can the corebook stand on its own? Are the kiths presented each distinct enough from the other to give a varied list?
    Reading the kith i cant help but get the feeling that it is incomplete. Like you would need the extra book of kith to run an interesting game. (Please understand, this is just a feeling based on first impression from reading...

  • At one point in the core we see this.
    ''Kindred wear Masks in public. A Mask is the persona she shows the prey. The Mask is the pretty lie, the identity that keeps her walking among the flock as an insider, even though she's nothing of the sort. It reflect how she deals with human society.
    The Dirge is who she is behind closed doors, and when dealing with other kindred. ... When she walks the halls of Elysium, and works within her covenant, she presents her Dirge '' pp. 80-81

    But, in agreement to what you said. We see later on in the book in the specific section of the...

  • It gives me the feeling like there is another anchor missing.
    The Mask is how you present yourself to mortal, the fiction needed for you to survive among the mortals.
    The dirge would be how you present yourself to the kindred. I think it is a bad idea to show your true self to the rest of the all night society, but just the same you dont deal with other kindred the same way you deal with mortals.
    The way i see it you need a third one that represent who you really are. The part you dont show anyone. If we go that this is the dirge, then you'd need another mask for when interacting...

    This is making me wonder how much is known about touchstone from an 'in-universe perspective'.

  • Thx, i had try to look, but everything i saw seemed to imply it would be out soon. I didnt realise that 'soon' has been implied for a long time now.
    Maybe its just as well, my funds are low at the moment so waiting a bit might be good thing in the end :P
    I'll put Wraith20 in my 'ideas for a future game' folder....

  • I gotta say alot of what i'm seeing here is making me interested in wraith. Is it the next 'something20' to come out? And if not would it be worth it to get the last corebook? (apologies if this isnt the right thread to ask this)

  • That works too. But what i meant is that whenever a Daeva has to roll to see if it becomes addicted or obsessed with something (i would make the player roll for any fun or pleasurable thing that is important to the character) the dice pool is limited by the daeva humanity.

    Apologies, my thoughts always get jumbled whenever i try to write them....

  • I've played with the idea of having the daeva clan bane be that the roll to resist addiction (and obsessions now that i think about it) couldnt go higher than humanity.
    Not sure if that would work tho.

    '' There is a material (or monetary) value for everything''. From the Mammon ... something.
    I'm sure there is a much better way of writing it but i cant think of it.

  • Thanks for showing me this thread. I had not seen it and it is nice to see that it was not just in my mind.

    As for the player. We had a game session Friday and i was all set up to present him with as much information as i could only for him to tell he didn't want any of it. He just wants to play a gangrel and isnt interested in ventrue (masquerade, requiem or otherwise).
    ...
    And it's just fine really. People play what they think they'll have the most fun playing and it is possible that although i see a stereotypical ventrue in nearly everything the character does, the...
