  • Interesting.

    If not a big B Bloodline, perhaps as a small b bloodline, like the mariner Gangrel or warrior Setites?

    (And yes, Victorian Vampire needs more love. 👍)...

  • Oh, believe me, I'll have a lot of seriously warpped stuff for them.

    Edit: While I'm thinking about it, a few odds and ends:

    Serhii Plokhy's Chernobyl: The History of a Nuclear Catastrophe is an in depth look at the event and what led to it, as well as the potential for similar disasters in developing nations.

    In the realm of streaming internet entertainment, Michael Smith and Rahul Telang's Streaming, Sharing, Stealing: Big Data and the Future of Entertainment.

    And for video game history, Kamie Lendino's newly released Adventure: The Atari 2600...

    The Funerary Industry

    Or as they like to call themselves, "the Death Care Industry". Said industry breaks down into three main branches: funeral homes, cemeteries, and the manufacturing end of things that make caskets, headstones and all the other stuff associated with modern mourning. Overall, it's a multi-billion dollar a year industry (nearly $15B in 2016) in the United States, and the four biggest companies own roughly 20% of the funeral homes in the US (the rest are all small family owned businesses). Since...

  • I remember a theory from somewhere about Aphrodite being Ishtar (and Astarte and others), but can't remember specifics.

  • While not really about mythlore, per say, I am a big fan of the late Tony Hillerman's novels about the Navajo Tribal Police, which do tend to get into issues of religion and folklore at times. Also, there was the one Hellboy story where he lives the story of an African hero (the name of which I am blanking on at the moment). But it is very awesome and the sort of thing that would make a great movie....

  • I've actually met Hite a few times. He's a nice guy, and a fascinating conversationalist.

    In the realm of urban fantasy books, Orson Scott Card's Magic Street is also pretty good (and one of the rare ones before recently to focus on African American characters). Also Simon R. Green's Drinking Midnight Wine is a fun read, as is Megan Lindholm's Wizard of the Pigeons. I've never read Holly Black's Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale, but I've heard it's pretty good. Likewise Martin Miller's The Good Fairies of New York....

  • I think Rage Across Australia predated the original Silver Fangs tribe book and so had no houses mentioned. In my games, I've always had Austere Howl of England/The British Isles be the predominant house in Australia (as well as in the Cape region of South Africa and a few other corners of the old Empire), with a growing presence of Blood Red Crest and to a lesser extent Wise Heart. But that's just me. There really is no wrong answer here.

    (As for the US, I have always seen Unbreakable Hearth as the "Canadian" house, at least in the sense that I always had their center of...

  • The connection between faerie folk and alien abductions/visitations isn't all that out there, relatively speaking. I remember Ken Hite writing about it more than a few times in his Suppressed Transmission column for Pyramid Magazine. The film Fire in the Sky (1993) was always an influence on how I imagined forced enchantment of mortals might result in PTSD. I've honestly always been kind of disappointed that The Autumn People did not include a group of UFO chasers as a possible hunter faction who were convinced that Changelings are actually alien invaders. Here is a summery of various fairy abduction...

    replied to Asian Pantheons
    I think us old folks used to call that the Jackie Chan Power. 👴

    And now I kinda want to play a character who aspires to become the god of breaking faces.

    I think if I was making a list for Asia, after the big three, it'd be something like: Persia, Mongolia, Thai, Korea, Tibet, Vietnam, Siberia, and then a bunch of others. 🤔...

  • I forget the anime I saw earlier this year with a female centaur as the main character, with dresses and skirts that covered the entire horse half and specially designed furniture. (What was weird was that after the third or fourth episode, you really stop noticing anything being out of the ordinary.)🙃...

  • I always sort of saw them as more of a Bygone race than a Changeling one (sort of like unicorns and dragons), that now sadly exist primarily only in the Dreaming or hidden mystic preserves maintained by Mages. But if they were to be a Kith, I'd probably want to have the legs just because it would seem to be such a big part of their identity.

    I wish I had a copy of the CoD Changing Breeds book, as I recall it having centaurs in it, and I'm sort of curious how they handled the issue....

    replied to Fixing the Wu-Keng
    I found that the easiest solution was simply to tweak their backstory slightly.

    In my games, "Wu Keng", which roughly translates to "pit witch" (and apparently there's also a verb form of 'keng' that means to defraud) is a term invented by the Wu Lung and is meant to be derogatory (sort of the way the Hermetics used to use "hedge wizard"). The Craft privately refer to themselves as the Handmaidens of Fate (which according to Google Translate would be Mingyun de Binu, maybe?), but some younger members over the past few decades have started taking the Wu...

  • The book version is way closer to Wayward mentality if not borderring on out right Slasher territory.

    The Avengers, the originals at least, were one using them as inspiration for a Technocrat group, would be ItX weapons designer, Progenitor MD with a really annoying primal daemon, NWO chemically enhanced agent, Syndicate heiress social trend setter, and Void Engineer delver into quantum subdimensions....

  • THE FITNESS INDUSTRY



    Physical fitness has become a big business over the past few decades, and it's a market that's always been ripe for exploitation by something like PENTEX. While the ancient Greek idea of the gymnasium never entirely went away, it wasn't until the 19th century that the idea of physical fitness as an ideal rather than a practical thing really came back in force. The idea was known as Muscular Christianity, and is one of those sort of curious bits of culture from that era. This was part of what gave birth to the YMCA/YWCA. Bodybuilding became a big...

  • I've long had a faction of the Shadow Lords (mostly Spanish and Italian in origin originally) who from the Dark Ages on believed the Christian God, especially from the Old Testament, is actually Grandfather Thunder, and have this hardline dogmatic and judgmental take on Catholicism.


    Added: The Gaian Inquisition*, a Shadow Lord Philodox Lupus of the Judges camp who is a dogmatic enforcer of the Litany verbatim, no ifs ands or buts, because that sort of insipid quibbling is ridiculous monkey-think and has no place in Garou law.
