  • All three IIRC. I'm not even sure if I still have my copies or not, but I think one chapter had how to convert Werewolf to Deadlands and the next chapter was vice versa (I can't recall what was in chapter three; I think rules conversion for their Rail Wars miniatures game).

    There was also a Call of Cthulhu/Deadlands cross over novel/adventure, so if you have ever wanted to convert CoC Mythos creatures to Werewolf/WoD, you can two step it....

  • I don't think there was much from the old days, and I'm not familiar enough with Changeling20 to know if it talks about Scandinavia and/or Iceland anywhere.

    Most of the Scandinavian/Nordic related stuff I remember (which wasn't a whole lot) was in the Trolls kith book and the House Aesin material in the book of Lost Houses. IIRC, the Sidhe of House Aesin consider themselves the Alfar (elves) of Norse mythology and folklore.

    Just personally (and unofficially), my take would be that the local Changelings refer to themselves as Huldufolk ("hidden people") and...

  • It depends on your interests. The WW20 version of Umbra or the Changing Ways book, maybe, just for utility value? (I can't recall what all was done for WW20.)

    Unfortunately, I can't say anything about Shattered Dreams as I have never read it.

  • I think we had a thread talking about that earlier this year. I can't recall much of specifics about it though, other than that there was a pre-Republic snake goddess cult in central Italy that would make an interesting if odd potential Setite origin.

    Last time I did anything with Dark Ages, I had the generally accepted mythology be that the 13 founders were fallen angels, with the High Clan ones having fallen for "noble" reasons and the Low Clans for base ones. (I tend to ignore the 2nd gen altogether.)

    (In a more perfect world, I like to believe the three...

  • A city making guide similar to Requiem's Damnation City?

  • As far as the Order of Hermes, I'll make note of a few of the Houses.
    House Meritina was one of the founding Houses who fell on hard times. One of the three "non-Latin" Houses (who were of mostly Celtic origins), their original focus was on "Nature Magic" similar to that of the Verbena/Old Faith. But at some point this turned into a focus on the Faerie and their magics. However, a lot of them still study nature magic and have an interest in the natural world, environmentalism, and elementalism. Also House Bjornaer, another of the non-Latin founders, who are master shapeshifters...

  • Vampires, probably as a slightly exaggerated idea of what a vampire is "supposed" to look like: Pale skin, thin and gaunt, either monstrous looking or almost absurdly beautiful, red tinted eyes, noticeable fangs, etc.

    Werebeasts, probably very savage and intimidating, with certain characteristics which put one in the mind of their specific animal. Fangs are probably noticeable for various canid, feline, and snake breeds. Rats probably appear somewhat sickly or unhinged. Crocodilians likely carry a similar aura to dragons. Spiders are probably a bit alien even by Fair Folk...

  • Generally speaking, Garou - and really all of the Fera - tend to be fairly xenophobic (especially by the standards of most modern information age humans). They are wary of outsiders and tend to look down on humans to some degree or another (even if only in the somewhat paternalistic fashion of the Children of Gaia). Mages tend to be even more distrusted, as they are using powers that most Garou don't think humans should really have access to (think of it along the lines of civilians with military grade firepower) and that their own activities often put them in competition for resources. Specifically...

  • It occurs to me that it would be interesting to have something which explored unconventional setting options. While these kind of things are easier to come up with in futuristic sci fi like Æon or classic pulp like Adventure! (alien worlds and various hidden realms, respectively), it is a bit different in a sci fi superhuman setting like Aberrant which lacks a lot of the traditional tropes of four color comics. So I think it would be nice to have something which talked about having Nova characters who are mainly focused on exploring or living in the deep oceans, Antarctica, space stations, moon...

  • That title really would've been prefect for an Aberrant world guide/gazetteer type book.

    I would like to see a Year One book in which the PCs are there at ground zero for the Nova age and get to help establish what Novas are all about in the world.

    Something that looks at the ins and outs of superhuman mental, physical and social powers and just how those can and do impact the setting would be nice also....

  • Vampire 2nd ed, as it had come out just before the Brujah clanbook which sucked me in to this whole thing to begin with.

  • Not really. But there do tend to be consequences and trade offs. A master chef, for example, may ultimately find the Fame background to be a double edged sword, hindering as much as it helps. (Skills of that nature may also begin to dull in time as one is no longer able to experience food the same way the living do.) A John Wick is going to have enemies or rivals who are as skilled as he is (if not more so because of centuries of experience). An IronMan is going to be limited by the more realistic levels of technology (which are still pretty out there in the real world, but not to the levels of...

  • Satyr would be interesting. Not sure which house. Fiona maybe?

    A rabbit Pooka who claims his feet are lucky.

    Also maybe a Nocker from House Aesin, which would essentially be a dwarf.

    And then there's the possibility of an Inanimae who literally is the dice he carries around with him....

  • Cursed (or otherwise darkly enchanted) objects. The old tv series Friday the 13th: The Series (which has nothing to do with the films; it was just a thing at the time, roll with it) had a couple of interesting possible ideas.
    • An antique tea cup decorated with a Swapper's Ivy pattern that can take the life/youth of a drinker to give it to the cup's owner.
    • An antique transport bee hive (which were made to transfer a hive from one location to another) which turns the bees into vampires, which drain the blood from victims and then transfer the life force to another person. (This is one of my favorites,

  • In general:
    • Star Trek - and by this, I mean the older stuff like the original series (and its animated spin off), The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager, as well as the early films (Wrath of Khan, The Undiscovered Country, and First Contact are probably three of the better ones). Mainly this is for general mood of optimism, especially in both science/technology and in the general goodness of people. Also the design aesthetic of most of the places you see on Earth, and for the alien worlds. [Also the two Star Trek comedy pastiches Galaxy Quest and The Orville.]

  • Heh.
    (I'm reminded of George O'Connor's The Olympians, when Poseidon is brooding and thinking back on his existence. When remembering his son Polyphemus, the cyclops Odysseus blinded, he remarks, "My children have always been monsters." Later, when remembering Theseus and how he abandoned Ariadne and caused the suicide of his mortal father, he repeats the same line.)...

    Seriously, this wouldn't be without precedent. Tartarus is, at least in some accounts IIRC, both a primordial being and a prison realm.

  • It depends. There's a bunch of them, including female Polianitsa. A few are actual historical people. Then you have ones like the giant Svyatogor who is clearly not. (He's one I'd say is probably one of the True Fey.) Others may be Garou (Silver Fangs, Fenrir, Black Furies, Shadow Lords) or other Fera (Gurahl, Corax), Mages of various styles (especially Old Faith/Verbena, Spirit Talkers/Dreamspeakers, and Messianic Voices/Celestial Chorus), vampires, and True Faith empowered holy warriors, among things....
