    replied to Donald Trump in the WoD
    I mean that’s one of the oldest analyses people had of the World of Darkness, you just need to add supernaturals and play the darkest things as is. I do like to dramatize things by making shadows deeper and darker and what not but frankly you can rip most plot lines from the headlines of business and political news and things can be as bad as you could ask for.

  • This is the kind of thing that a great deal of IC and OOC discussion goes on about and it’s one of the oldest discussions that goes on in Mage. Where does the baseline begin and end.

    My personal understanding is that the baseline factors of reality are the same. The sun rises in the east and sets in the west, gravity pulls us down, humans stand upright. Things that are readily observed from the time of the first human beings are accepted as the baseline of reality and forming the basis of common understanding.

    Where consensual reality enters into things is the reasons...

  • Just to note that this is based upon my own recollections and occasionally personal opinion, which I will mark with the tag ‘PO’. Hope what follows is helpful!

    1. While basically every fera is going to want access to a Caerns given their sacred significance and gnosis accumulation, not every fera will actually want to maintain them. The Garou are naturally leaders in caern possession although they are limited to the global north, particularly North America & Europe (plus Australia) although I prefer to have a decent population in Asia (PO) as well. The Bastet in South America,...

    replied to The Technocracy of the 50s?
    For me the thought that always occurs with the Union in the 50s is that in many ways the 50s was an anomaly while also forming the basis of decades to follow.

    I see, while not a full civil war, a definite rivalry coloring all parts of Union life between the theories of Capitalism and Communism with both factions within the Union using the language of either doctrine to justify increased authoritarian policies and with a ruthless desire for victory that allowed the Nephandi to infiltrate both sides.

    It’s going to be a big time for every convention but I feel that’s...

    replied to The Overthrow of Zeus: Specifics?
    I’m aware of one version where it is destined that Dionysus would eventually overthrow Zeus, given their association with conquest and the mystery birth and what not, but that might be a story specific to a few of Dionysus’ own cults and some Orphic cults.

    I’ve also heard a telling of the story of Heracles freeing Prometheus that said the reason Zeus allowed it is Prometheus warned Zeus that he had knowledge of how Zeus might be overthrown and wanting to know what the titan of foresight did, Zeus allowed his release. Once free Prometheus warned him that Thetis was deathbed to...

  • I’ve talked about this sort of thing before with my 20.5 philosophy posts and this will be far from a comprehensive index but here are some examples of how I’ve used V5 as inspiration for metaplot updates in my V20 games.

    •The Ministry
    The Ministry is a name for a new faction of Settites who describe themselves as secular break-aways from theological Settites. They have approached the Camarilla and Anarch Movement, although particularly the latter, with the use of ‘The Ministry’ as a faction. Ministry Settites espouse an allegorical reading of the Set stories and the...
