    replied to Adam Conover is everything
    He's a powerful abyssal entity. The show is a way of pushing his annunaki into the world subtly- none of the things he says were true until they published that episode of the show.

    He's starting on the minor things, the parts of that dead universe that could happen in the fallen world without too much conflict. Once he's got enough of a foothold, he can start working on the big things. "people say the sun is a giant nuclear reaction, but did you know it's actually a gaping hole into the afterlife? It's true!"

    I mean, whether it will work is kind of incidental to the fact you have a powerful super-undead running around with a plot to devour countless souls.

    And besides, even if it fails it can't make things any worse for the lifeless so hey- worth a shot, right?...

    I really like the idea of one reaching Apotheosis by "paying off their debt", there's a terrifying villian plot right there....

    Plausible and an interesting concept. A lot of their utterences even have the style of biblical miracles.

    replied to Summoning Spirits
    Second Sight has explicit rules for dealing with spirits magically, as well as for powers gained by worshiping eldritch creatures if you want to branch out from just Spirit spirits.

    Otherwise:
    • Book of spirits is the obvious one (contains spirits, how to interact with them, and so forth).
    • Predators is werewolf specific, but contains a lot of potential spirits to be summoned.
    • Summoners for mage needs a bit of tinkering to generalise but shouldn't be too hard, and contains detailed rules on summoning things from various worlds.
    • Most of Immortals is irrelevant, but one of the

  • Tying the moments into more primal/animal fears:

    Clashing Faults- you must survive, but you are trapped. Wherever you go, you never find home, only more caves, more tunnels, more darkness. You can never escape.

    Frozen Hell- you must survive, but you are alone. The resources you relied on are gone, your pack is gone, the world you're adapted to is gone. Nothing can save you.

    Molten Earth- you must survive, but nowhere is safe. It's all fire, and poison, and pain, and death. There is no place to hide.

    Primordial Seas- you must survive, but you...

  • What mockery would the Amirani have?

    Yes, I know mockeries aren't a thing anymore.

    But if, hypothetically, someone still had mockeries in their setting, what sort of pandorans would the Amirani create?

    Creatures of sadism and cruelty, representing pointless suffering rather then teaching pain? Demons to their Angels? Spreaders of lies and confusion to corrupt the divine vision?

    Opinions?

  • Even if you don't care about the suffering you're inflicting on your "child", they will- even if everything goes well, creating a Promethean carries a high risk of literally making your own worst enemy, especially if you make enough that you start to neglect them.

  • More horror things!

    Little Nightmares is a straight up changeling durance- the main character becomes either a gristlegrinder or leechfinger at the end.

    House of Leaves is what happens when an incarnate gets corrupted by the Abyss. The weird meta things are the beast hunting through the dream- read it, and it can find you.

    The videotape from the Ring isn't haunted, at least not in the conventional sense. Samara was a particularly powerful Arcanthus, and in her dying moments laid one hell of a curse on the world.

    Freddy Kruger is a vampire, with...

    I would definitely like more variant heroes- some kind of upgrade/higher-level splat would go a long way to making them more threatening, as would new gifts. Maybe something on the "nice" heroes mentioned in the core book and what they do with their time.

  • Technically speaking, it's the one who has the most influence on the local primordial dream- spreading nightmares, creating chambers or chamberable places, etc. In practical terms, it's a combination of the most powerful, most feared and most interactions with mundane humanity....

  • At least in 1st ed, it specifies that diablerised vampires never leave behind ghosts, which at least implies that others vampires leave them behind normally. Although that was early first ed so it may well have been retconned.

  • So basically, if the vampire can't hide the camera just stops working? Fair enough then, thanks!

  • The basic setting- the Iconnu (generic eldritch abominations) have punched through into our world to destroy it. While they did a lot of damage and turned a decent chuck of the USA into a chaotic nightmare realm, they weren't able to actually destroy the world because it supported by people called the awakened (no relation to nwod Mages, they're just kind of...cool people?), so the Iconnu sent spirits to kill them all. Vampires are humans possessed by the damned, werewolves are possessed by spirits of rage, and demons are spirits possessing inanimate objects. So it is up to you to save the awakened...

  • Vampires don't show up on camera because they are always just standing out of frame/behind something/facing away/etc. But how does this work if, say, I am taking a photo of a vampire standing in the middle of an empty room? Or walking down a corridor with constant surveillance? Or in a room with multiple cctv cameras arranged so there's no blind spot? Or me taking a selfie with the vampire?

    To make a better question-can the beast be tricked/manoeuvred into a position where it can't avoid showing up on camera?

    The Stories Are Real (Avenger/Legend kinship)

    It was never meant to be real. It was just old wives tales and children's stories. But now it's here, just like the story said. Now it's real. How many other terrible things you think are just stories are real, too?

  • Antagonist advice- bloodlines for the four horsemen

    So!

    In my game, the major antagonists are going to be a coeitre of vampires basing themselves on the four horsemen of the apocalypse. The question is, what bloodlines are best for them?

    Morbus for Pestilence, obviously, and Kallisti works for War. But I can't really find anything for Famine, and there are enough necromancy ones that I am unsure for Death. So, various vampire fans, does anyone have any ideas?...

    I would certainly allow it (probably with a protean and/or vigor combination) but i think you would need to homebrew mechanics for how it works I'm afraid.

    A collector beast fitting the fear of being betrayed maybe? Or a galetiad, getting all she can before disquiet hits, killing him once it does and moving on with these paper things humans seem to value so much. Or someone ridden by a greed/betrayal/murder spirit, or possessed by an infernal demon of greed- they get money, it gets essence, win-win. Or an abmortal, who has to kill and might as well profit off it. Or a particularly amoral bone-picker stricken, exploiting the passion key to take what she never had in life.

    For a twist, a demon- she doesn't steal the man's money, she steals...
