  • Yeah, me too! Why isn't there a hit TV series like this? It's like we're living in an alternate reality where all the TV is rabidly Americanised!...

  • Could it possibly be that the Nosferatu have been telling lies about Shrecknet the whole time? and that rather than them being the best of the best it's all a bit of a kludge instead?

  • Gods n Monsters - How Would You Build a...

    Inspired by the Gods & Monsters supplement for M20 I'm wondering how you would build a fantasy or mythological character. No need to do all the stats but I'm very interested in combining various Merits, flaws, and Special Advantages to get an interesting combination.

    e.g.

    Liche: Simply add "Immortal" (7pt merit) with Phylactery (7pt flaw) to a sphere-using Mage

    Mummy: A basic "Immortal" (7pt merit)


    Adding Rapid Healing (various) and Soak Lethal (3pt merit) makes any creature extremely resilient as well

  • I've visited post-communist Slovakia many times, almost always to one little village, and from what I can understand village life wasn't particularly repressive or crushing (in the real world that is, your mileage may vary in the World of Darkness). So I think there may still have been opportunity for Changelings to exist around the edges and in the cracks. Someone, for instance, still has to work the illegal stills in the woods so that everyone gets their slivovic each year. (Think of an East European version of the Dukes of Hazzard!)...

    replied to Training rotes?
    One flaw with most roleplaying games like WoD where you accumulate XP is that it doesn't simulate extreme training regimes very well. e.g. the kind of regime were you exercise for six hours a day five days a week and eat 5000 calories of protein while guided by a personal trainer (see numerous articles on how various Hollywood stars got 'ripped' for a role). Similar, albeit less extreme regimes are used by 'elite' military personnel the world over.

    The benefits of those regimes generally disappear within a couple of weeks of stopping the regime. Gaining XP for such a regime doesn't...

  • I ran a Changeling game last year with a few characters lifted almost directly from this movie: Shopping

    Jude Law's character was the inspiration for both the leader of a gang of teenage Changelings and a Vampire street criminal, Sadie Frost's character was the inspiration for a street Mage, Sean Bean's character became a criminal Ventrue Elder, and Sean Pertwee inspired another street Mage who was the mentor for the Sadie Frost inspired character.

    So one movie brought forth five major characters or NPCs - that's pretty good going!

    p.s. It also has a brief...

  • Bit of a minor quibble here but it is important. You're using the word 'spacetime' twice here which kind of implies that you're assuming a scientific/real world physics approach to the spell effects. When you take a 'real world' approach to magic you're ignoring the various other paradigms that mage allows for. It's actually quite hard to 'think like a mage' when working out spells and their rules but it is an essential exercise to understand that the same effect can be attained through different paradigms (and that some paradigms are innately 'easier' to work with certain effects).
