  • Thralls can get a variety of bonuses from the Pacts they make; from extra dots in Attributes and Abilities, more Willpower (all of those are bought with Freebie Points, per 1 point of Faith the Thrall has 10 Freebie Points spent on them), weaker versions of the Lores that the Demons have and a variety of utility powers (immunity to mind control, immunity to possession and so on). But Thralls are rarely of enough Faith to have a lot of abilities: two dots is the norm, three for faithful, four for zealous and five for Pope-level faith. So finding a fitting Thrall with four dots is a feat in and...

    First off, how long have the two of you been together, and does it have any kind of formality to it (married, some kind of other contract)? Maybe it's based on that....

    Meanwhile my men's pants can fit my wallet, phone, keys, the thing I keep my sunglasses in, the thing I keep by earbuds in and still have enough space to fit a USB drive or two... and that's not even using my back pockets.

    I bet it's a conspiracy by Big Purse to keep themselves in business.

  • For Vampire I really like the optional end posed at the end of The Crucible of God, where the players become the new... well, they are not from before the flood. What would the equivalent be of "before the disaster" or "before the apocalypse"? Boost their power but not by too much, set a new baseline for these new "second generation" of vampires and continue from there. For Demon I'd go with Paradise Won; Lucifer wins and sees that not all of the Fallen are Earthbound material. But the world is in tatters and it needs rebuilding.

    There could be a bit...

    I think that this constant push to define yourself in increasingly granular ways focusses too much on defining what you are and takes away from the freedom to be. Plus there's the intellectual basis for it all rooted in classism where the highly-educated people of the world define for the lesser-educated once what they are and what they can be, paired with pressure and shame if you do not conform to these standards that the intellectuals have set for you....

    Asexuality of course. Unfortunately there are way too many regressives who think that by casually upholding the cause (like wearing a shirt with a slogan, using a hashtag or eating something red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple in the course of a day) elevates them above all the other plebians who are not as virtuous as them. Unfortunately these people exist both within and without the LGBT community....

    Think if Zdzisław Beksiński painted an entire world. Hell, there's even an image in one of the books that based on one of his paintings.

    Bisexuality is not like Harmony from Werewolf: The Forsaken. You don't have to be in relationships with an equal number of men and women lest you fall into homosexuality/heterosexuality. Just because you've been with more women than men doesn't mean you're any less bi than someone with a perfect 50/50 split. You have someone who makes you happy and you make her happy, so go for it! Plus, you're not under some obligation to have relationships with other men to prove your bisexuality (just ignore what certain parts of the LGBT community claim) any more than being straight demands you to have relationships...

  • Alright, I just wondered if you understood the implications of including them.

    I'd say that True Faith and a child hiding under a blanket to keep the monsters out are not the same thing. The latter is more like something you'd see in Mage: where one's personal belief in something gives it magical qualities. A child Mage would be able to (subconsciously) create a bedsheet that renders them invulnerable/invisible/untouchable to monsters, but they don't have (or for that matter understand) the zeal and conviction that comes with True Faith. True Faith is the belief and trust in something...

  • Demons do not age as long as they have at least one Faith Point. (Demon Player's Guide p.15) By straining the Rules As Written this is one of a Demon's inherent powers, which can be granted through a Pact. Exactly how this would keep working is up for grabs: the Player's Guide says this is as long as a Demon has Faith Points. Since mortals don't have those, this can either cross over with their Faith rating or their Willpower. The more literal interpretation would require them to roll Willpower 7 for every scene they want to use this. But given the nature of a scene this becomes even muddier to...

    "Jedi" is both singluar and plural (a Jedi, the jedi) so "The Last Jedi" could very well refer to multiple Jedi rather than a single one (Luke or Rei).

  • Does Dude of Legend count as a template? If so, one of those.

    If not... probably a Genius. A Hoffnung Progenitor with Exelixi and Epikrato. Or a Neid Artificer with Automata and Prostasia.

  • When you think about it the Manifestations of Geist aren't all that strange knowing what ghosts can do:

    - Boneyard: Make an area spooky.
    - Caul: Make a person spooky.
    - Curse: Curse a person.
    - Marionette: Possess a person.
    - Oracle: Spooky senses.
    - Rage: Lash out at a person with spooky powers.
    - Shroud: Give a person a spooky aura.

    I concede the point on Promethean however. For some I see the connection with alchemy and the humours and stuff, but for the rest? Not really.

    I am really looking forward to Deviant, however....
