    replied to Details on Prospero
    In the wiki itself there's some speculation on Prospero being the Sultan Ameirin of Ankara, a Brujah infernalist mentioned in Tome of Secrets - or at least that Beckett might believe it so. How much weight does one put on it and what could it mean for a chronicle, i would say is pretty up for grabs.

  • Also, here's someone else's delicious idea of how to further mess up the family business through Mr. Du Sable, if you want to. ...

  • Want to turn things on their head?

    How about the papers are unconnected to the conspiracy, but personal stuff from Maldavis pointing out to some contact with her actual sire (DuSable) and a degree of connection with certain elders of the city, like part of the Primogen (and Rebekka, the Inconnu Monitor in the city)? Showing some extra wheels at play that are quite unlike what they would expect. Does Anton's sire even know Maldavis is the childe of a "brood brother" of hers?

  • Oh yeah, the coterie is burning all bridges with the anarchs before even getting into the city.
    And the people they pissed with are not even the worse scumbags of the lot. Tough luck.

  • Could work nicely to jumpstart the mind for certain. The second one in particular actually got me thinking of Caracalla for some reason....

    replied to Demons - must they be dangerous?
    Must an exotic beast or person from an alien culture be? They don't have to be inimical or dangerous, but can be either or both depending on circunstances - sometimes too easily for the careless or ignorant. Same principle applies with 1st circle demons, with the "bonus" of powers to match your basic unruly spirit.

    And dealing with 2nd or 3rd circles ones ups the scale of complication, as their desires, egos, motivations and powers can easily maatch those of high level deities....

  • But back on the essentials:

    - The PCs' pack, through circuntances you have not related, came across a male corpse behind a wheat mill, identity & cause of death unknown (so far).
    - The man's body shows no obvious signs of damage or struggle (would undressing him confirm this or reveal new data?).
    - It may or not be the body of a local person, this has yet to be established (are the PCs themselves locals? If so they would almost certainly recognize him).
    - What were the PCs doing in that local in the first place? Would it seem strange, suspicious or lead to inconvenient...

    Out of curiosity, in what chapter of BJD would he be found?

  • I think one of the Diablerie modules does explore the subject a bit - and Berlin by Night makes some use of the aforementioned mechanics in the "Ascension of Caine" adventure.......

  • And how involved is he still or not with the Greek Orthodox Church?



    A kind of hate-on so deep that he prefered to join the Sabbat than even consider sitting at the same table as the leading Toreador of Europe at the time....

  • That said i guess a Gangrel/Julii bloodline might end up being subtly different to the point of near-invisibility.

    I also ask myself if there might be other Nosferatu/Julii bloodline around, with slightly different disclipine arrangements, like:
    - Dominate, Nightmare, Obfuscate, Resilience
    - Animalism, Dominate, Nightmare, Vigor

  • As an aside, i would take most stats in Chicago by Night, much like those from the Gary NPCs, with a grain of salt,, due to how early in the game they came, specially those of the elders or leading kindred.

    A bunch of times they are described doing things they don't really have the stats or disciplines to make happen - or in some cases, struggling with situations they should actually breeze through with the disciplines given. Personally, i would say outside of the methuselahs Nicolai and Son are the only NPCs in the book that actually merit Dominate 4+, that is a serious game-changer/breaker...

  • Good point. Pastes, salves and such medicines should certainly count as equipment/"non-Charm dice" bonus....

  • Oh yeah, my bad.



    Well, i see no reason why cameos could not happen anyway as a little wink to the other game....

  • Maybe adapting some of the charms of a disease-spirit. There is one in the 3e core, right?
    Tinkering with some hearthstones or artifacts (high level familiars costing 3 merit points, about the same as your "basic" artifact with evocations) might be good too.


    Also, old thread of possible relevance to the subject of homebrewing elementals & other such things....

    Good to know. The changes between who she was and what she became should make for something interesting to read and explore in a game, imho.
    Not to mention that female enterpreuners, while not unheard of, were certainly not usual in the 19th century - though possibly more common in states going through their growing pains/spurts like Colorado back then - and being a nocturnal predator to boot could certainly complicate things.

    That figures of importance in other states (like New York) might have an infuence, if not outright presence, in the local halls of power in those early...

  • Oh, wouldn't that make for quite a reveal to everybody...
    As an aside is her friendly psycho killer Dickie Fulcher also around?
    Because i could see that turning into a problem for Modius, as Dickie is pretty close to going wassail as he currently stands if memory tricks me not.



    Hehehehe - hope you have fun when that stuff comes up.

    Dark Ages game? Ever though of some PC or NPC from that game making a cameo?...

    The terrible thing about KotE for me was always how at the end they were basically furless garou with the antagonism amped and lots of unfortunate connoations of mixing that, the "only southeast asian people become kuei-jin, for reasons" and the advance of metaplot, into a horrid snowball of yellow terror.

    But your idea of a WoD: Chinatown sounds like a great thing for a Storyteller's Vault product. Personally, i would like to see something playing with the Liberdade district in São Paulo among those "enclaves".

    Damn, and now i'm thinking of how...

  • As an aside, it does beggar the question of why is she in Gary instead of one of the conspirators with actual childer in Gary.
    Also, she must run fast as (beside Anthius) the thugs from Wolf Pack should have few to no qualms about offing her on sight.

    (as an aside, Anthius could be a informant/mole of sorts into the Pack for the anarchs, as he seemed to respect Maldavis)



    LET THE STREETS RUN RED


    (no, not telling anyone to buy it - just couldn't resist the catchphrase reference)...
