  • If a Mystic's ability included the ability to talk with/bond with a dog, then that could also be Shaggy, perhaps?
    On the other hand, it would be kind of cool to have rules for playing dogs (and perhaps other animals) that would allow for things like Scooby Doo, Beast from The Hills Have Eyes, Nanook in The Lost Boys, Saint in Marvel's Tomb of Dracula, Einstein in Dean Koontz's The Watchers, and Harold in Bunnicula.

  • Gargoyles have Fortitude, Potence, and their own unique version of Protean, which replaces the third, fourth and fifth dot powers with being able to meld with buildings, growing working wings, and becoming a sun proof statue.

    Malkavians have their original Disciplines of Auspex, Dominate and Obfuscate, with most of the Dementation effects being combination/alloy powers of those three....

  • My personal preference as usually been to pick which game is taking primary prominence (am I playing a Vampire game which involves mages or an I playing a Mage came which involves vampires, for example) and work from there, with the game I'm using taking precedence and anything from the other game being yes, no, or maybe as needed. (I have some vague recollection of someone from WWGS once telling me this was how the developers tended to approach their own game lines, at least during the late 2nd ed and revised periods.) Trying to do a game in which you are using two (or more) games, with their...

  • My impression has always been that it was something mostly arbitrary a bunch of elders and ancilla from the High Clans came up with to designate themselves as the Cool Kids and the others as the ones who don't get to sit at the Cool Kids table in the cafeteria. (Probably starting when Western European Kindred society was shaking itself out after the Roman era set up collapsed, and becoming more of a thing when the War of Princes, with its lords often being from those clans, took off.) But others' mileage may vary....

  • Regarding #1, I'll mention that my long time Revised system interpretation (I'm not sure it fully qualifies as a house rule or not) is that any Garou who has even a single point of spendable Willpower left will automatically /instinctively use that point to get the single success on the Gnosis roll needed to avoid Botching, as essentially a final gasp of their spirit half to avoid destruction....

    I'm very much looking forward to it. One of the reasons I've enjoyed the second edition Scion stuff is finally getting to see more of the various Celtic pantheons as opposed to having them all mashed up into a single group the way they so often get portrayed....

  • There's probably more than a few "friend of a friend" stories among vampires about Men in Black (as in the subjects of traditional UFO and/or conspiracy folklore), conspiracies of the living wealthy elite, and the like. Probably most consider them some sort of modern government version of the Society of Leopold/Inquisition from the old days. (And if you use the Second Inquisition, then there is such a thing.) Some, especially older or more well read Tremere, may think they could be descendants of forces the Order encountered before they became vampires. But an organization of reality...

  • Yeah. IIRC, Baltimore has consistently had one of the higher murder rates for a US city since at least the 1990s. If you were to ask me to pick a Sabbat signature city, be it now or back in the White Wolf days, it would've been a toss up between it and Detroit. (Detroit likely would've been the winner back in the day, just because it's closer to Chicago, with Milwaukee being the Anarch signature city.)

    (There's probably an argument to be made that, in hindsight, NYC probably should've been Camarilla dominated for much of the 90s and 00s, "contested" during the 80s and the...

  • 1. I made mention of Peru in the very sentence before.

    2. For people of my age in the United States, the phrase "you people" is heavily loaded with racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, and other bigoted connotations. I would appreciate you NOT using it to refer to me....

  • I keep poking at the idea of the Ananasi having various regional-esque cultures, sort of reflecting the local cultural and mythology of spiders as well as possibly being slightly oriented toward one part of the Triat. For example, the Ananasi culture of the Mediterranean region (especially the eastern part) would be the Arachne (or some variation of that), who tend to be Weaver oriented while placing a certain emphasis on weaving and various arts, crafts, and trades which are associated with it (including things that are perhaps a few steps removed, such as the fashion industry, chemistry via...

  • As far as Vampire goes, I don't think there's much of anything. I think the Clan Novels from 20 years ago had a Ventrue named Alexander Garlotte as the Prince, but I have no knowledge of anything about his backstory, stats, plans, personality, or if he even survived the events of those books.
    The only real coverage of Baltimore or Maryland was in the Changeling sourcebook Kingdom of Willows, and it didn't say much of anything about vampires or other supernatural creatures.
    So it is kind of a blank slate to do whatever you want with, really....

  • Astra: Lost in Space (2019) - A sci fi anime in which a group of high school students in a future space-faring go on a school trip and end up sucked through a worm hole to an area beyond known space and now have to find their way home.

    The Fifth Element (1997) - A visually beautiful and fun to watch French made sci fi action film with locations that run the gamut from working class urban apartments and middle of nowhere archaeological digs to high tech labs and ultra-lux space cruise liners....

  • The Syndicate's whole schtick is "the best that money can buy", and that includes both staff and training. Even in the days of Sorcerers Crusade and the High Guild, especially with the Resplendent Axe and Rose Guild, this included instruction in the martial arts. Enforcers' skill in such areas should really be roughly on par with that of the Euthanatos (probably not quite with the Akashic Brotherhood, as that is specifically the Brotherhood's niche/forte).
    The Swashbucklers Handbook went into more detail about the various factions of the High Guild, including pointing out that...

  • Well, Enforcers tend to be the equivalent of the main characters from Man on Fire or Taken, if not going into full blown John Wick territory. (The Ethan Hawke film 24 Hours to Live is also a really good source of inspiration.)

    For my own games, I've long used various groups of specialists, including Headhunters (troubleshooters, trackers, extraction specialists - read "kidnapping" - and assassins), Spectres (undercover, espionage and infiltration), and White Knights (elite combat units used for security and raids)....

  • I suspect that Jareth has always influenced by take on the true fey, along with Willy Wonka, Terpsichore from Xanadu, Evil from Time Bandits, Nicodemus from The Secret of NIMH, The Childlike Empress from The Never-Ending Story, The Horned King from The Black Cauldron, Jack O'the Green and the Lord of Darkness from Legend, the Nome King from Return to Oz, the King of the Moon and Vulcan and Venus from The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, the White Witch from The Lion The Witch & The Wardrobe, and at least half the cast of The Phantom Tollbooth. (Obviously, I grew up in the 80s.)
