  • Any vaccine is going to make a lot of money and everyone is going to want it so if Magadon gets it first they can pop banes in there and it'll be a while before anyone realizes.

    I can definitely see an argument to be made that this could be a result of Gaian action, particularly Ratkin, although I can also see an argument to be made for for a spiritual fluctuation from either the Wyld or Wyrm.

  • There are Kami which exist but they are exceedingly rare and imbued by Gaia with a specific purpose so aside from an ST plot or some other sort of spiritual possession, there's not much of a chance for it.

    I haven't used it a ton except as a source of inspiration to say that in my Chronicles there have been a broad spectrum of Wyrm cults throughout history and not all of them can be tied to PENTEX & Premium Oil.

  • This is a lot of really interesting analysis and while I do agree that having the Silver Fangs be the predominant masters of Silver klaives while other tribes use primarily non-Silver klaives, it does take something away in a sense that a lot of people would be annoyed about being mostly unable to use the cool Silver klaives.

    But, ultimately, my point here that I'm actually writing this to make is that I'm actually pretty forgiving of inconsistency in the klaive origins and even Gwydion's true origins being lost because ultimately, something this epic of proportion would see so much...

  • RAW, barring certain paths of Sorcery/Hedge Magic, humans are not able to piece the Gauntlet or interact with the Umbra of their own volition.

    However I do think it would be interesting if there were some ways in which they could.

    Places where the Gauntlet is particularly thin or weak might work as ways to enter perhaps, whether that's an ancient grove or a catacomb leading to the underworld.

    I would also let people of strident enough belief and some form of shamanic/druidic aptitude or training to attempt to slip through the Gauntlet in places where it is...

    I've honestly had similar thoughts myself to that.

    I've lowkey basically considered the Gaian skies to be divided between Corax in the northern hemisphere and Camazotz in the Southern Hemisphere with a slight difference in duties in that the Corax are freely blabber-mouths while the Camazotz are more discerning with their dissemination of information and keeping the secrets of the changing breeds specifically.

  • Ah, gotcha Draconis, thank ya, good to know.

    •If one likes the Kuei-Jin as written then sure, that justification works fine, heck, its built into the Kuei-Jin from the ground up. They kept kindred out of all of Asia, the Anda and Salubri were flukes, maybe a bit during European Imperialism but that's it. If you like as written, that's fair and fine. I'll be honest though, I still don't think it makes much practical sense. Kindred are like rats, once you have them there almost impossible to fully root out. Asia has an enormous population and ancient trade routes to Europe, India,...

    I've never seen it happen as a major production but as an ST I'd probably be willing to add a bonus of something.

    Maybe a bonus die depending on the number of fae involved, capped by the highest fae realm available. I could also see an additional difficulty reduction from -1 to -3 based on the scale of the group bunk.

    But I'm not a mechanically minded person, so... YMMV.

  • •This is me asking because I'm genuinely curious, where do the terms 'Pinyin Xian' mean? If it's something that I could use as a more accurate term for Hsien, like 'Jiangshi' for Kuei-Jin I'd definitely be interested in adding it to my repertoire.

    •As far as ret-conning the Kuei-Jin I can see how they work being usable but I agree that correcting terms and grounding the culture and themes more accurately would be useful for both the game and western-eastern cultural contact generally. I've said before, I don't mind the Kuei-Jin existing in some form, I simply think it does the...

  • Setting aside 'The Kuei-Jin Question' which a lot of good digital ink has already been spilled over and some of my contemporary thoughts are along with the most recent of those threads, but that aside, I'll just suffice to say that I think the Kuei-Jin are fine but problematic when they replace White Wolf's traditional vampiric slot with themselves.

    Honestly, I think Asia would be best handed by having its own vampiric sect(s) appropriate to local cultures and leadership styles alongside an existing population of Kuei-Jin and vampiric style bygones (but the latter is more the domain...

  • No you right, a Glass Walker theurge as a fashion designer would make a lot of sense given how clothing and accessories that won't threaten the veil are something every garou needs.

  • Of the top of my head, and bearing in mind that this is just my opinion and YMMV...

    •I actually like having High King David Ardry back and I think it keeps him in the sort of mystery state he was in the beginning without forcing an ST's hand to go into a 'War of Three Queens' style plot, although if that's someone's desire, I'd say go for it! I think it's an interesting way of handing the inevitable Bedlam that would come from having the weight of all North American changelings relying on you alongside the Banality of his task and what the future may hold...

    It's definitely something that depends on the chronicle, as always with interpretations of either the Council of Traditions or Technocratic Union, but these are also most definitely extremely interesting and stuff I'd probably take inspiration from all sorts of different styles of chronicle. Awesome work NOOQ!

    This is fascinating stuff Black Fox! I always love to see the awesome sorts of things that can come out of the in-depth exploration of concepts like what you and No One of Consequence do.

    Those are all also definitely interesting time periods and settings for vampire to explore. Honestly though there are so many interesting possibilities that naming them all would probably take us some fraction of forever.

    Getting to see 20th edition takes on stuff like Victorian Period (yeah we did get stuff but it's outdated now and they're wasn't much to begin with honestly) and Dark Ages: Rome also feels like it would definitely be a classic time period for setting Vampire the Masquerade.

    Byzantium & the Renaissance would also definitely be interesting to examine in a vampiric context.

    Plus Sci-Fi & Cyber punk Vampire has always sounded wild, but definitely a lot of fun. X D

    replied to Baronies of Avalon
    Just a disclaimer, I'm doing this from memory so please forgive any errors:

    •To the best of my knowledge, the Baronies of Avalon loosely retained their structure into the period of the late 15th-early 16th century and even afterwards the hierarchy of powers remained somewhat the same. Mithras was the vampiric King of Britain and while he eventually made an alliance of ease with the Camarilla, his rules and ways of power remained predominantly set into place within Britain with lip service paid to the customs and traditions of the Camarilla as necessary.

    •Amongst the...

  • Carrying around as much water and somewhat significant knock knacks could also be a good idea. You never know what the local spirits might be willing to trade for.
