  • Royal Contracts used to be exclusive to the Gentry... until changelings figured out how to claim them as their own. What's more, they're now forging new Royal Contracts, without the intercession of the Gentry. I find it kinda awesome, and in-theme with all the "use the enemy's tools against them" kind of motifs we've seen in how Seemings and Kiths now work....

  • What are the Madmen in Bloody Shards? Clarity 0 changelings?

    And could you elaborate more on Twisting Surface and Smoking Mirror?

  • While the Great Work should be off-limits, I can inagine something like your own powers going berserk and escaping your control, but without separating from you enough to be using a separate dice pool. Or a split personality having different ideas on how to use a supernatural power.

    That we all agree upon.

    It's just that, as long as we're talking about crossover where the werewolves are Uratha, we have to take in multiple books and sources to get the whole picture. If the werewolves in question were not Uratha, then none of this would've mattered in the first place.



    This is not mutually exclusive with Uratha involvement. Vampires, whether they're walking corpses or shadowy abominations, are creatures filled with both uncanny powers and obscure weaknesses.



    Seeing as the direction the writers of CoD tend to...

    They did mention that each book is written from their splat's perspective. So of course Vampire says that Strix are immune to all physical attacks that doesn't inflict aggravated damage... because that's all the vampires know, and they don't know the whole picture. And the whole picture, in this case, includes the descendants of the God of the Hunt, so yeah.



    Inflicting aggravated damage to humans is a side effect of gaining Essence by eating human flesh, which in turn is a manifestation of the werewolves' spiritual nature. In fact, because the Essence-from-pseudo-cannibalism...

    For everyone interested in the whole Strix vs. Uratha issue, one of the Werewolf writers said this:...

  • At least for Arcadian Contracts, it's said that Royal Contracts are ones that the Gentry forged for themselves. So the Gentry probably struck a deal with Autumn and other "Court patrons" somewhere in history, just as how they struck deals with almost everything else....

  • While I haven't got the chance to actually play a Promethean game, having only read the 2e book, by the looks of it it seems you had a pretty lenient Storyteller. It's not a bad thing, since you said you had a good time, but it is indeed unorthodox.

    A more meta reason for Requiem not covering world-wide and time-spanning plots could be that we already know what it would look like, in the form of Masquerade. When expanding Requiem games' scale, most of the time it's about tracking the nature and source of the Curse or worldwide conspiracies, both of which have been dealt with in Masquerade.

    Either games could focus on both personal/regional stories and historic/global ones, and they in fact do, but they decided to specialize.

  • I'm not savvy enough in Geist - would you mind explaining a bit more?

    EDIT: Is it the "jumped off a bridge" and "we" part? Those could be read as metaphor for the Devouring and the presence of the Horror, and the surreality of the whole experience look more in line with the blurring of reality and dream that Beasts tend to provoke....

  • An Anakim Tyrant with Ugallu Atavisms. Give her Cyclopean Strength (Anakim) to represent telekinetic power, Mimir's Wisdom (Anakim) for preternaturally superior intelligence in general, and Eye of Heaven (Ugallu) to represent mind-reading. Her regal presence could be represented by either Looming Presence (Anakim) or Alien Allure (Makara), depending on which aspect you want to emphasize (maybe even both). Other Atavisms such as Wings of the Raptor and Unbreakable could be added on, representing things like telekinetically flying around on her throne and force shields. No idea on Nightmares, though....

    replied to Soul Questions
    I always thought the Anima Mundi is the collective soul of everything that doesn't have an individual soul. What Dave said quite some time ago (quoted by Satchel above) strengthened this.

    Of course this is confusing to anyone who thought souls are a unique thing to each person. Not so much to people who thought otherwise. In Hinduism, individual souls (atman) are still a part of the universal existence (brahman), with the key to enlightenment being realizing that. Buddhism goes a step further and outright says that the notion of an individual, singular, and everlasting soul/self...
