    replied to Demons, Defined
    I think for what you’re describing, a warding rite for a linear sort of magic such as thaumaturgy, something important to keep in mind is the understanding that the Arcanists crafting the ritual had of their subjects and intentions.

    For instance the perspective, paradigm, and motivations of the one making the ritual might have an important effect on how precisely it works. If the magician was concerned with warding unholy spirits then that would be their focus, but this may leave a loophole for Wyrm Spirits (who aren’t necessarily corrupt) to slip through. Rituals focused on keeping...

  • For my games I usually take a kind of 20.5 tack as I’ve explained on this server before, but as I return from college business, I’ll try to elaborate upon that and say how I tend to handle the Sabbat in those instances. Hopefully people enjoy and find some inspiration in it.

    So in 2004, after the ups-and-downs of the East Coast Crusades, the Red Star caused what may have been a near miss with a Gehenna. It’s a mystery and no one knows for sure. Regardless, it certainly caused a stir in vampiric society.

    New York City had fallen and the Sabbat was scrambling to cover...

  • It would certainly be a fun world building exercise, a sort of TU answer to Etherite ‘Paradigma’. I can see there being the usual inter and intra convention struggles over which theories should be pushed and what should and should not be published for what reasons.

    As far as human institutions go, I’m sure that there are Enlightened Citizens within every significant establishment and probably a decent number of actual Technocrats responsible for supervision of these institutions on the Union’s behalf.

    replied to Glass Walker Caerns
    Glass Walker caerns are almost always urban caerns with all the benefits and pitfalls that applies. Like any other caern they need to be nested in an area of strong spiritual power and connection to Gaia; although the GW aren’t necessarily opposed to a bit of aid from the Weaver to get the job done.

    Anything from bars, hidden gardens, meditation centers, a server bay, a factory, or a record storage center could potentially become hearts for a Glass Walker caern is enough gnosis and spiritual activity is available.

  • I definitely agree that a modern Digital Web (what are we at, 3.0 now?) would definitely need to take into account the sheer quantity of information, data, and communication floating through net space.

    I can definitely see a fierce competition to chart, shepherd, and groom the rapid growth of the Digital Web but I think a running theme would be how that has become more and more like riding a whirl wind.

    Technocrats try to firm their grip through throttling, monitoring, and information tracking; yet as they tighten their grip more sand slips through their fingers. The...

    replied to So about the antediluvians
    I tend to run them as something akin to the Old Gods of Cosmic Horror stories. They are all sleeping and yet even passively they shape the world around them and connect to those they have sympathetic bonds with.

    Haqim/Assam - While he is one of the antediluvians I’m more tempted to have walking around, I usually run him as dwelling within the Heartblood of Alamut and Clan Assamite/Banu Haqim where he can philosophize in his sleep and grow in sanguine power while fed by his children, learning and growing with new blood. The recent rising may have been a machination of his or he might...

    CRISPUS ATTUCKS & SMILING JACK

    Crispus, whether he truly is the legendary figure of the Boston Maccacre or took his name in honor of said man, has been waiting for an opportunity such as this for years. After decades of brooding over the systematic undermining of MLK Jr. and Malcolm X, fighting the war on drugs terrorizing Black communities in the 80s from LA to Chicago, and every other battle he’s had to face; he’s risen on an upsurge of popular support to retake a prominent role at the head of both the Anarch Movement and the Liberation Movement.

    Crispus Attucks...

  • My personal head canon regarding Ventru is that they continue to be the architect of their clan to these very nights.

    I imagine that their feeding restriction was that of the First City and that since the Deluge they have been slowly starving, falling to torpor, and briefly rising from time to time as the movements of fate allow.

    The Clan is aware of their antediluvian’s activity through rumor and suspicion alone and their is a reason why elder Ventrue live in paranoia of secret masters guiding the great conspiracy of lords throughout the night.

    replied to Gods and Vampires?
    So people who have read my posts on this forum know that I’m a fan of a little something called MULTI-RESONANCE LAYERED REALITY.

    This is a concept from DtF with aligning concepts throughout the World of Darkness that, in my opinion, does a good job of explaining how several distinct entities can claim to be the same entity/being.

    A good example of this is gods.

    So let’s take a god from Old Greek Religion, Poseidon.

    Now, there may be any number of vampires who have invoked Poseidon and his titles to gather cults or create a sense of religious...
