  • Part 2

    The Alexandrian Society - Scholars and philosophers who have tirelessly worked since the Hellenic age to discover and preserve ancient knowledge and divine wisdom, as well as to seek out and explore new manifestations of The One in the modern world. While perhaps the most bookish members of the Chorus, their sacred calling requires them to journey out into the world and face whatever dangers stand between them and the lore they seek.
    • The Librum Sanctum is the oldest and purest faction of the Society, created among the Library of Alexandria. They recover, restore and safeguard

  • Factions of the Celestial Chorus (pt 1)

    The Sacred Ministry - The political and theological leadership of the Chorus, they are priests, preachers and prophets working to guide the world back in to harmony with The One and establish the Sacred City. They favor a mix of high ritual and fiery charismatic presence.
    • The Golden Throne are the elites of the Chorus, many of them holding positions of power and influence within both the Tradition and in mundane society. They are bishops, Brahmans, and deacons advancing the creation of the Sacred City through business, politics, philanthropy,

  • So, the Celestial Chorus.

    So, my take on the Chorus has long been that they are not synonymous with any real world religion. Instead, their belief is that The One and his/her/its relation to real world religions is akin to that of the Akashic Brotherhood in regards to Do and its relationship with real world martial arts. Which is to say, the Chorus believes that it is the original prototype ur-religion and that mundane/real world faiths are "Gateway Faiths" to The One in the same way that mundane/real world martial arts are Gateway Arts to Do.
    Primarily, these Gateway...

  • WoD: Gypsies predated Changeling and so has no Changeling content.

    The big three are Blood Dimmed Tides, The Bygone Bestiary, and RA Appalachia (it was the introduction of the Duchy of Appalachia and the Cherokee spirit people), along with Time of Judgment.

    It would be sort of amusing if you had this club of various Semitic pantheons (Mesopotamians, Egyptians, Arabian, Canaanite/Carthaginian, Elamite, any others) who all look at the various Indo-European pantheons as juvenile uncivilized rubes from the sticks....

  • When I worked all of that out a decade ago, I think the idea was the RA Australia (this version of it) would've talked about the Bunyip, but not so much about playing them. That would've been a much later Werewolf book, Lost Breeds, that would've talked about them and the lost Fera both for historical chronicles and if one wanted to bring them back (or have never been wiped out). The Australia book would've spent more time talking about both local Changelings and their Aboriginal counterparts....

  • I've considered it. It's mostly a time issue, combined with the problem of finding suitable artwork. If I was to, the first two would be a Ravnos related bit for Vampire and something for Scion.

    Incidentally, the companion/follow up to the above would've been Heirs of Avalon, a replacement for Isle of the Mighty, done primarily as Mage book, but with an entire chapter about Changeling, covering England, Scotland and Wales.

    (The others would've been Rio by Night, Rage Across Australia, and Haunted Ireland.)...

  • The Digital Web is now almost entirely the domain of the Technocracy, save for a handful of surviving Tradition strongholds and areas held by the Nephandi or the rare Marauder chaos zone. The mix of corporate ownership, government oversight/censorship, and the mass psychosis that is social media have largely destroyed any hope the Web and its mundane counterpart might have had for humanity.

    Random guess: Arthur and company are originally Scions of various Welsh gods, but became so successful that they split off into their unique pantheon and started absorbing a few Heroes/DemiGods from a few others. Now they are Incarnating as a new generation of Heroes.

    And Sir Kay is The World's version of Gordon Ramsay....

    I kind of want to play the reborn Mordred as this broody bishonen bad boy type character.

  • (The following is something I wrote about ten years ago, mainly as a mental/creative exercise, in which I did outlines for a series of crossover books for each of the original five game lines. The four Changeling related books I ended up giving a set of thematically linked titles, Midnight Masquerade, Savage Dawn, Mystic Zenith, and Shadows in Twilight. All four followed the same basic structure, as did the other six crossover book outlines.)

  • Partially. I think the biggest issue is the total lack of any sort of subtlety or nuance. The sort of in your face, over the top aspect of a lot of it fit OK with some of Werewolf's general tone at the time, but it was much less successful for things like Wraith (which requires a certain degree of atmosphere and mood) or Changeling (which works best with a certain sense of whimsy and wonder, even if its sometimes skewed a little dark).

    Ultimately, a dark carnival or circus in the WoD is the sort of thing that would probably be best served by preserving a great deal of mystery and...

    Yeah. About ten years ago, I decided to correct the fact that I'd really not read any of the mass of Arthurian inspired fiction out there, and Mists of Avalon is really the only major/well known one I didn't read just because I could never find it at my local used bookstore. (This was even before I heard about the allegations against her.)

    As for other stuff:

    I have some vague recollections of seeing Disney's The Sword and the Stone as a kid in the very early 80s, but my biggest memory of being exposed to Arthurian myth as a kid was seeing John Boorman's Excalibur on...

    At a guess, the King Arthur/Welsh pantheon book. I hope that is true, as I've really been looking forward to it.

    (I'm hoping maybe it'll include something about the Anglo/Saxon/Jute mantles for the Aesir.)

  • You can certainly do that. The fun thing about the Dials is that they make the setting vastly customizeable. Four dials with five settings each is 20 options, but one of those dials covers how many Pantheons you want to use, which means 13 different variations of that Dial at Iron (the lowest) - 14 if you include the Atlanteans - plus the later ones from DemiGod and eventually God. And that only multiplies if you nudge it up to having just some combination of two or three. You can easily run something akin to early seasons of Supernatural (Origin level characters hunting active Titanspawn of multiple...

  • Um, no, it's really not. Wyrd literally means "come to pass" and is a synonym for Fate and Destiny. The world Legend specifically denotes a story or set of stories about a famous person or event. IE, myths, sagas, epics, and folk tales. While a character's wyrd can be part of their legend, the two terms are not interchangeable. Thor's "Wyrd" is to die in battle with the Midgard Serpent, but his Legend encompasses much, much more than that single event.

    Regardless, Changeling is not Scion, nor vice versa. The idea of Wyrd as a power stat makes some sense for the...
