  • In fact, I had run an all-Syndicate game previously.

    A. Regardless of the Methodology's portfolio, Disbursement agents have their own profession and generate lots of profit. If I remember correctly, The Fallen Tower, Progenitor CB, and other various sourcebooks featured Syndic reps describe Disbursement agents have their sources of income that make lots of money. If they are bureaucratic drones who posses little to no monetary flair, it is very doubtful Syndicate ever recruits them in the first place. NWO bureaucrats can do exactly same jobs if they get the right knowledge and PU

  • You are always most helpful, Thank you for being a kind, enlightened Daimon, Five Eyes. I have some questions, too;

    A: Both the Disbursements and Financier operates in economic and corporate sectors and generates net profits for the Union, Prime and otherwise, aren't they? I know their assigned matrix of responsibility and obligation is distinct from each other - Disbursements are bureaucrats and managers and Financiers are counselors and economists first and foremost. Having said that, nonetheless, isn't Disbursements and Financiers suffering significant overlap both in their operational

  • Syndicate supposedly controls global finance and financial institutions of all the world. So yes, Syndicate directly owns such institutions. And they have to own them - if not, how they can arrange contract with engineering companies controlled by Iteration X? I have never heard banks and other financial institutions single out their own exclusive security based on outside advisers.


    It seems Syndicate knows existence of such entities but does not acknowledge their mystical connotations.

  • What do you mean? Magadon does not benefit the Union in any conceivable way. Union is relying on world economy to sustain itself. Scouring Pentex itself would destabilize world economy, to be sure. However, destroying a large corporation holds no meaningful impact on the Union, and there are many substitutes fully able to fill Magadon's position.


    And do you think if a technocrat sees bane-possessed person, he will do not take any action, whether he knows the truth or not? Remember, Technocracy deems dimensional breach and contamination as one of the direst threat on safety...

  • Rests on a rotten foundation or not, every sane technocrat would be disgusted and appalled no end at misdeeds of Megadon, or, for that matter, any other Pentex subsidiaries. Even if we take Technephandi Union metaplot, most of agents below Nephandi Inner Circle are fundamentally good, idealistic people.

    Furthermore, many agents specialized at investigation and eradication of ghosts, spirits, demons and various anomalies learn Dimensional Science. It is no small wonder corruption of SPD has not been revealed for decades in the WtA crossover option. Another contrived impossibility....

  • What is the primary difference between the Syndicate, the Ventrue and the Giovanni?

    Yeah, their goals and paradigms are ultimately different. However, their conducts, practices and performances in business seem...more or less same except minor quirks, variants, preferences, propensities and priorities.

    Is their any strategic, macro-scale, established, fundamental difference between behaviors and manners of those three groups? ,

  • On the contrary, just like many others, I distaste Technocracy-Pentex connection. I also think coexistence of Technocracy and Pentex is extremely improbable. If Pentex is as powerful as WtA portraying, not only the Syndicate, but the entire Union, has to implement exhaustive investigations and examination and discover what is actually going inside benevolent facade of the megacop....

  • If it is a crossover setting, it would be reasonable to assume Progenitors are going to exhibit great interest in Magadon. It is a large pharmaceutical corporation. In fact, the third largest one. However, it is not under control or influence of Progenitors, and they are independently cooking up advanced, potentially Enlightened, medicines.

    So yes, I think it gives Progenitors and Syndicate more than enough reason to conduct investigation. And the consequence would be...dire, and disturbing. They will initiate purge in an instant if they figure out true face of Magadon....

  • Magadon has ties with the Progenitors?

    It seems most of their stuff, including mockery breeds, are derived from Enlightened Science, rather than Sleeper science.

    Still, I think it would be reasonable, even appropriate, if it has been started as one of the Syndicate's hypertech front companies, However, AFAIK, Magadon is an exception of rule. Unlike rest of the Pentex, it was found and developed without any Syndicate investment and/or management, and after its insolvency, purchased and incorporated into Pentex.

    So, how they managed to obtain near-hypertech? How they are able to conduct and advance their research,...

  • So, the Syndicate still considers vampires are actively benefiting/replenishing/distributing global economy and useful to maintain and reinforce global financial system?

    And how wealthy is modern Order of Hermes do you think? As wealthy as Tremere or Toreador or Glass Walkers?

  • What you mean is, if a vampire benefits its group through manipulation of mortal societies and economies, it also benefits other vampires, and other vampire coteries are conducting similar manipulations, and those in turn influence mortal societies and economies? If so, could you provide a notable example? I'm really curious of the mechanism.

    And "ability to make people behave the way the want and create outcomes that go against probability" paragraph refers mind-altering Disciplines, enthralling Charisma beyond human norm and blood bond/thralldom, I presume? Also, vampires...
