  • Yeah, modern Anarchs have all the ups and downs of a decentralized political movement.

    The upside is that there is no head of the snake (it would be difficult but one can hypothetically assassinate the Inner Circle or College of Cardinals) to be cut, it’s difficult to identify threats from non-threats and reconnoiter appropriately, it’s difficult to mobilize again a guerilla force, and no matter what you do the Anarchs you don’t hit can fade away to come back at a better time and odds are a bloody reprisal can be used to radicalize new Anarchs.

    Any serious anarch...

  • While naturally different circumstances call for different peculiarities, this is the rub of how I handle my Anarchs:

    First of all ‘Anarch’ is a pejorative exonym and refers to a broad swath of ideologies which are only loosely associated and only rarely affiliated. Historically it was applied by elders and brood patriarchs (patriarch here being gender neutral) to describe vampires who rejected the dictates of their elders and “betters”. For most of settled agrarianate history there was little ideological coherence amongst Anarchs and often they simply elevated one of their...

  • I think that for the smart werewolves, this is more just a confirmation of what they knew already. The vast majority of the disaster they face is done by a relatively small number of people and organizations. Should they have access to wrecking through those institutions, they happily would.

    Torpor | Options & Opinions

    Heya! This thread is made for the purpose of collecting people’s various thoughts and opinions regarding torpor and torpor rules. People can use any edition as a resource, I’m partial to V20 but every edition has its reasons to love it and I’m not interested in any pissing contests. Everyone is welcome here.

    I ask because I feel an important factor to worldbuilding my own settings in vampire is how long vampires are active and inactive. It helps me feel like I can create realistic and reasonable seeming generations of development and allows for a certain schematizing of history....

    Yeah the Taliban draws much of its support from popularity amongst the Afghan Pashtun tribes, although they get their resources and materials from all over the place, including Pakistan intelligence, not to mention the funding of Wahhabi Islamist schools propagating an incredibly violent and puritanical form of Islam amongst those communities.

    That being said I definitely agree, my understanding is that the current orthodox Taliban is a National organization rather then in an international organization, which is part of the reason for their conflict and tension with international...

    Well this is obviously an incredibly topical issue and one that I think naturally needs to be handled with delicacy and care, both because of the deal and present human context and because of our proximity to it. While tables can do whatever they’re comfortable with, we have to be considerate of these factors when having broader and more public discussions.

    That said, vampires will do as they always do. There will be a certain level of street level vampires who have the same street level concerns as any person but with a radically different set of needs. On a larger tier vampires...

  • I believe there is discussion in books such as the Convention Books for the New World Order & Syndicate as well as in books which cover history and the Awakened’s relationship with it.

    The general consensus seems to be that they were experiments facilitated by those groups and might be connected to an internal struggle over direction which took place between East and West during the Cold War but seemed to have been largely resolved with the current status quo of liberal democracy, neoliberalism, and oligarchy.

    If you’re gonna throw that out there MWIS than can you at least grant us the benefit of hearing your case for why Theodrim’s claims are fallacies instead of what amounts to basically thread crudding.
