    replied to Games Discussion/What Are You Playing?
    So this might be weird (maybe i should put this in the movie thread) but i just finished watching the ''movie'' of God of War 2018 essentially a 8 hour youtube edit of the game with the cinematics and expositionnal moments. I have neither the money nor the time to play the game and the story was really all i wanted to see so it works out well.

    I really like the story and how it presented a mythology that i was reasonably familiar with in a way that was different while remaining somewhat consistent of the mythology.
    Now the problem is that my 'play scion' itch is back something...

    Not for new material (if that makes any sense). But i wouldnt say no to a made for efficiency, no art, rules and tools compendium. Ideally on line so that it can be updated when you have new material. Maybe something in the matter of DnD beyond....

  • You already use the book when you read it. It is true that playing with it is using it more, but i think you already can get something out of the book by simply reading it.

    Also, sometimes just the hope that you may someday run or play a game from that book is enough, at least thats what i tell myself. (looks at my copy of Promethean, sigh)
    I guess it also depends on the available funds you have. Right now my money is low enough that i've decided to only buy new books if i'm certain i'll play them. But when i'll have more money i'll probably be more loose with buying books that...

  • Interesting.
    I've always had Cruac, Theban, Carthian Law and Invictus Oath be manipulation of the blood sympathy (as i mentionned above)
    But disciplines are specialized expression of predatory aura.

    Then again, it occurs to me that blood sympathy would be related in some way to the predatory aura....

  • Since you can be part of more than one covenant (total status can't exceed 5) i'd argue that the Night Doctors were formed out of kindred who are part of both. You'd see them more often in carthians because carthians are more likely to share and since Night Doctor surgery isnt a coil or scale the Ordo has no say on it being taught to others.
    But still several of them dabble in both covenant i think.

    Keep in mind. Thats what i go with, not necessarily whats written tho....

  • I have them be an advanced expression of blood sympathy, more so in the case of carthian law.

  • The thing is that the broadness of the archetypes are proving difficult for my players to interact with. The hope i have is a role would be easier for them to remember and use for the purpose of regaining their willpower.


    Yes, that is also what bothers me most about changing masque and dirge. But the truth is no matter how much more opportunity the players have they never used it to regain willpower. I thought that having the player tell me that they spend the first 3 hours of the night to go to class wouldn't be much different then telling me they go talk to their touchstone....

  • Changing Mask and Dirge for something else ... kinda

    After more than a year of playing vampire (albeit only for 2hour once each month), my players have never really interacted with the mask and dirge. They have a few different reasons but ultimately they just dont really like those aspect.

    Therefore what i want to try is that instead of abstract personality types (autoritarian, conformist, idealist), i'll change the two anchors for more concrete roles/identity that they'll have to play to earn willpower.

    The Masquerade:
    Technically i'm not really changing much from mask. The big thing is that instead of a more or...

    As for the Invictus, violence is not even necessary.
    As a member of the invictus you do a political favor to one of the bigger carthian factions. Then arrange for things to seem like you are getting an advantage from that faction.
    Now you only have to watch as the carthians dissolve into in-fightings and claims of ''selling out''.

    The invictus probably has entire playbooks of these kinds of scenario that they use when they are bored.

    replied to How to fight Carthian Law?
    The feeling i get (i'll go reading the core more before going to bed) is that carthians are the best to fight against carthian laws. A Carthian has the best chance of convincing enough other carthians that a particular law is bad that it would be dropped or replaced.
