    Mythic Eras: Age of Alexander/King of the World (Theoi, Netjer, and Yazata in 328BC, as the new Lord of Asia tries to turn them into a single pantheon) [Yes, I'm oversimplifying things a bit, but it sounds fun.]

  • Kingdom Come is an interesting look at what happens when you have a bunch of superhumans who have no real purpose in life beyond fighting each other for the hell of it suddenly confronted by a bunch of superhumans who think superhumans should stand for something more and try to enforce that, only to end up being confronted by a third faction who believe group B - no matter how wall meaning - are doomed to failure and only making things worse, and non-powered humanity finally having enough and trying to put an end to all superhumans. Almost everyone in the story suffers from the tragic flaw of...

    If I had a nickel for every time "see page XX" cropped up in a 1st edition White Wolf book, I could buy a very nice lunch.

  • They were a number of characters who only appeared in the background and were only identified in Alex Ross's art notes, including the identifications of everyone on the covers of issues 1 thru 3. Batwoman and Ace are on the back upper left corner of number 3 (the one with Batman and all of his allies). The pair are homages to the original Batwoman and Ace the Bat-hound from the 1950s comics. The originals, along with the Batmen of Many Nations, also appear in the Batman: The Brave & The Bold cartoon....

  • There was an old Silver Age bit with The Batmen of Many Nations, with a dozen or so guys from around the world who were inspired by Batman to become caped crusaders of their own countries. Grant Morrison used it as the basis for the pre-New 52 Batman Incorporated series. The British pair, Knight and Squire, got their own miniseries, which was a lot of fun. (Several of them had cameos in Kingdom Come, including a new one, the New Gods' Batwoman of New Genesis and her giant bat-hound Ace.) Green Arrow had a similar group as well IIRC.

    ​My understanding is that those who die are:
    • Odin (killed by Fenrir)
    • Freyr (killed by Surtr)
    • Thor (killed by Jormungandr)
    • Tyr (killed by Garm)
    • Heimdall (killed by Loki)
    • Loki (killed by Heimdall)
    • Bragi (killed by some sort of dwarven boar; I'm not clear on the full story)
    • Ve (Odin's brother, also killed by Fenrir or killed by an elf by mistake)
    • Hel
    • Meili
    • Njord (doesn't actually fight; killed when Surtr destroys Vanaheim)
    • Snotra
    • Nanna (Baldar's wife, dies before Ragnarok of a broken heart after Baldar's murder)
    • Gna
    The survivors are:
    • AEgir (sea jotun allied with Asg

    I'm pondering the idea of some sort of high fantasy setting, in which the scions of various gods over the centuries have made astounding advances and impacts upon the setting. I'm just not sure if it works better as a straight up fantasy (with kingdoms patterned on the home cultures of the pantheons, like a Classical Greece styled kingdom full of Bronze and Iron Age Daedalian super tech) or as an alternate history type thing....

  • It's sort of ironic that, after devoting so much material to the city over the years (the original A World of Darkness, Book of Caerns, Changeling, and a few others), San Francisco by Night ended up being one of the weaker city setting books.

    I strongly second the recommendation for Damnation City. Werewolf: The Forsaken's Territories and Hunter: The Vigil's Block by Bloody Block supplements also expand on it in certain ways.

    While not a Vampire book, something I've gotten a lot of mileage out of over the years is Critical Locations from the d20 Modern line, which...

  • I thought your name sounded familiar.

    And I'm reminded that Dead Magic 2 had DA:Mage rules for all of the Nordic and European Shamanism rotes.

    I keep thinking it would be cool to do a Dark Ages bit about all of the Hermetic Tribunals, but such a thing may tread on Atlas's copyright/trademark. :/...

    The status of Hunter.net would be one of the big questions a H20 book would need to look at, yes.

    Also, after 20 years, how much true information have the Imbued collected about the supernatural population? And what are various Imbued factions doing with it?...

    Without access to the company's financial and sales records, there is really no way to tell.

    I don't really have any interest in it, as I'm perfectly happy with the largely metaplot-free modified Revised system I've been using for over a decade, don't really care much about metaplot developments, and spend way too much time yelling at kids to stay off of my lawn. But I'm probably not the target audience. Other people do seem to enjoy it in whole or part, and as long as they are having fun, I'm happy for them. And if OP does anything for it that looks cool, I will likely donate.

    I keep waiting for a Vampire game similar to Mass Effect and Dragon Age, like Bloodlines but for consoles. And bigger....

  • Well, between Wolf of Wall Street, Focus, The Legend of Tarzan, Terminal, and Mary Queen of Scots, she's hit several of the good Masquerade character archetypes.

    I wonder how badly the current Vampire LARP world is overrun by Quinn-Malks?...

  • It has varied over the years. One I remember was someone else's Miami by Night game where the city was split between Camarilla and Anarchs similar to the way Berlin had been, mostly as a fall out of the Cocaine Cowboy era of the 70s and 80s, when both factions united to drive the Sabbat contingent out. Another was Seattle, where the Anarchs were in the process of toppling the Prince in the wake of the 1999 WTO protests/riots. Then there was Tokyo (ignoring KotE and using Kindred instead) where the Anarchs (referred to as Trashing Dragons) were viewed by the ruling Camarilla-associated Houses as...

    I figured if I was going to do an American pantheon, it'd be made up of Scions of other Pantheons who found themselves bound together (by fate weaving or some such) as America's nationalistic mythology forms in the early 20th century. People like Davey Crockett, Thomas Edison, Clara Barton, Harry Houdini, Fredrick Douglas, etc.

    Ether that or they'd be be a bunch of Scions from existing pantheons who became America's trade gods - Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, John Henry, etc. Or maybe a mix of the two....

  • Yeah. The Ventrue always emphasized that they were the guardians of vampire society and its interests, which is not the same thing as mortal ones. World of Darkness game protagonists were always monsters, even if the antagonists were worse ones. "A Beast I Am ..." isn't just about one's personal struggle with the Beast, but about what one is willing to do to survive politically and socially as well. That's a big part of why I always found them so interesting....

  • One of the first games I played in was as as a bunch of Anarchs caught up in the events of Under a Blood Red Moon, and we ended up being the ones to kill Lodin (and Al Capone), eventually turning much of New City into an Anarch stronghold....

  • If you are that cynical or nihilistic, then you would join the Cult of Cthulhu, with your value of "idealism and/or power" = "being one of the last ones to be eaten".

    But if you're relatively young and idealistic, then you still think you have a chance of beating the system, or at least have some sort of romanticized notion of dying on your feet instead of serving on your knees. Or if you are older and more cynical, you still think you have a chance of using the young and idealistic as tools to destroy your enemies and seize power for yourself, or at least a level...
