  • Forgot about Wolfsbane. Was forbidden to read it by my ST due to spoilers. As you said that would make Werewolf the second gameline with a Night Horrors book.

  • Mage wouldn't be the first gameline with two Night Horrors book, and unlike VtR they'd be spread across editions.

  • The most obvious and simple (but not necessarily best) answer would be a Night Horros book similar to the upcoming Shunned by the Moon.

  • Goetia, ghosts and souls, no, but Gulmoths draws fuel from the Resonant Condition, meaning Spirit is most likely to detect disturbances caused by Gulmoths such as feeding from Resonances or applying further Manifestation Conditions. But I do agree that the spell wouldn't be able to just detect the presence of Gulmoths.
    If I were to rewrite the spell I'd probably also add that it detects the active effects of Immundi....

  • Having Shadow Name • as a prerequisite for Secret Identity implies that the mage requires the Merit regardless of who they cast the spell on, which shouldn't be the case. Besides, it's quite possible to have a Shadow Name without having the Merit, meaning your taken Persona isn't yet representing you metaphysically. It seems to me you should easily be able to cast the spell on such subjects as well by using a Reach.

  • While those three orders might be mentioned in Tome of the Pentacle, the name of the book heavily implies that no, they won't get any details. The Pentacle is specifically the four modern Diamond orders and Free Council so anything else would be beyond the obvious scope of the book.

  • No. Vampire: The Requiem is the corebook for Vampire: The Requiem. Chronicles of Darkness, despite sharing name with the collective franchise, is just the corebook for playing unaltered, non-Hunter humans. Any rules contained in Chronicles of Darkness is optional when playing Vampire: The Requiem because Vampire: The Requiem is standalone....

  • Pentacle is the name for the Diamond plus Free Council. The Diamond is called so due to the symbolism. Even when they were six orders (Panscryptias, Keepers and Tremere) instead of the modern four they were still called the Diamond so it has nothing to do with the number of orders.

    replied to Willpower cost for Cruac too
    It was included by virtue of there not being a rule about vampires gaining Willpower through sleep. Remember, the 2E core books are stand alone and not just templates added to the GMCRU or CofD core....

  • He was a moron in that he made several mistakes trying to find India, and never accepted that he found something else. And he was murderous in that he showed off the dismembered bodies of dissidents during his (thankfully short) rule in America to dissuade revolts. I haven't seen the video (on a road trip right now) but I guess it didn't bring up that he also forced slaves to engage in prostitution. According to documents written by the man himself the youngest girls was only nine years old.
    So I'd personally claim he was a monster in addition to being a murderous moron.

    Pandemonium sounds so much better, eh?...

  • Different types of Twilight are cluttered with different things. Death has ghosts and ghostly representations of ruined objects and buildings. Spirit contains the odd spirits that've managed to breach the Gauntlet. Mind doesn't naturally contain anything. Only summoned Goetia and psychic projections end up there.

    There's a rule about spells not stacking. Whenever two spells has the same effect on the same subject only one of those two spells will take effect, suppressing the other until one of them runs out of duration. So if you cast Shifting Sands to travel back in time one Scene and then cast the spell again, one of those two instances of Shifting Sands will be suppressed and you'll continue to only have travelled one Scene back in time instead of two.

    replied to Mind magic and frenzy
    You need Death 5 to rip out Awakened souls. Other altered souls has no official rules. Also, altering non-Mage templates is still Archmaster territory, which I believe should extend to ripping souls out of them. Also, there's nothing confirming that the Beast is part of the vampire's analogue for a soul....

    replied to Grimoire - What do they look like
    That's really nice. I'm looking forward to that part.

    I also got the idea of finding Ruins of the Time Before in the Middle East and find a whole stash of ancient Grimoires. Only problem is that these particular ruins were previously discovered and used by the mages from Kish, and every single Grimoire contains multiple Acamoth and Gulmoth via the Haunting Grimoire spell....

    replied to Grimoire - What do they look like
    "The sheer speed and ephemeral nature of transmitting and storing digital information plays
    oddly with the permanence of a rote Imago, causing some e-Grimoires (as techné
    practitioners call them) to generate extraneous data by themselves, corrupt a drive into
    something with bizarre properties, spawn magical computer viruses, or even develop
    rudimentary artificial personalities.
    "

    Sith Holocrons, here we go!

    It's okay. I was just baffled that two people in a row claimed Tilts didn't exist in VtR when I just had read up on Tilts in VtR to write an earlier post in this thread (where I actually mentioned what VtR says about healing them).



    Probably because it's baked into Specified Targets. There's no appendix or even separate heading for Tilts. Not even subheadings for the individual Tilts.
    (Also, C-3PO had a silver leg in the original trilogy.)



    Still, are there any special rules for incendiary rounds for vampires? My reading of the core book...

    What the hell are you two talking about? VtR certainly doesn't list that many Tilts compared to CofD or GMCRU, which is a shame, but Arm Wrack, Leg Wrack, Stunned and Blinded are written out in full in the VtR core book on page 178. How you get them, how they affect you, and how you get rid of them.




    Where does it say that incendiary rounds do 9 Again?...

    The VtR core book just says that you need to heal the damage (natural interpretation would still be all the damage dealt in the attack, imo) for the Tilts that can be healed, but Mage actually describes how to bookkeep Tilts and you need to heal all damage inflicted when you got the Tilt. Specifically you need to heal the leftmost box you filled in when you got the Tilt but since you can only heal from right to left it's pretty obvious that you need to heal all damage....
