  • 8. A female graduate from the Schola Medica Salernitana (the medical school of Salerno), whose knowledge of anatomy and methods of death led to her becoming a special forensic investigator for powerful patrons. (Suggested Clans: Assamite, Cappadocian, Salubri, Tremere; Suggested Roads: Humanity, Heaven) [Taken from the late Ariana Franklin's excellent Mistress of the Art of Death tetralogy.]

    9. A Nordic seidr witch, one more interested in continuing her traditional craft than with any of the Einherjar's nearly dead religious cult, therefore able to fit in with 'modern' 12th and 13th...

  • It'd make an interesting location for a collection of Glomes and Solimonds.

    I've long wanted to set a Werewolf chronicle in the Everglades and surrounding areas....

  • Do you mean random NPCs, premade player characters (Traditions or Order of Reason?), or supporting characters?

  • Bleah. Yes. I've never seen the Mask sequel, but the trailer alone was mind-scarringly bad.

    And I was thinking of Tom Hiddleston. I've no idea why I get my handsome theatrically trained British actors with high foreheads and charming smiles confused, but I do. ...

  • THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

    Again, this is one of those things I've always been a little surprised wasn't in the original list of PENTEX Subsidiaries. It's a large and profitable industry, one with a lot of cultural impact, and a frequent subject of scandals, conspiracy theories and fictional portrayals. Currently, the "big three" are Sony Music Entertainment (Japan), Universal Music Group (France), and Warner Music Group (USA). One of the best and easy to read overviews of the industry I've read is Gareth Murphy's Cowboys and Indies, which starts with the very invention of "talking...

  • Dark Eras: 1984

    1984: The Haunted Valley,
    set in the San Fernando Valley and it's LA commuter towns (the world you see in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Valley Girl, ET, and The Karate Kid) and/or Orange Valley (Poltergeist), based around the idea that back in the 1920s, an architect built a building in LA designed to harness spiritual energy from the underworld, perhaps with the idea of summoning some ancient god. Because of certain astrological alignments, that building has become active and is causing a massive upswing in hauntings and other paranormal disturbances in the region....

    I need to see those. I was trying to watch a horror movie a day for the entire month, but got derailed by family crisis. Did manage to watch Jigsaw (actually better than most of the Saw movies, as it seemed to actually remember the point of the original), the original 1922 version of Nosferatu (holds up fairly well), The Lazarus Effect (OK, but it should've ended about 2 minutes earlier than it did, IMO), and As Above So Below (pretty good). Got interrupted watching Babadook (interesting, but boy are the characters really annoying). Hoping to maybe get around to The Witch, The Girl With All the...

    I kind of want to try to create a city setting in the same vein as Chicago by Night and the like with several dozen Scions all in one urban area. The potential for socio-political tomfoolery alone makes me giggle....

  • A decent general overview of Egypt in the World of Darkness can be found here.

    You can roughly divide the nation's history into a series of periods: Prehistoric (10000+BC - @3000BC), Ancient (@3000BC - @300BC), Ptolemaic (@300BC - @30BC), Roman (@30BC - @600AD), Caliphate (@650AD - 1517AD), Ottoman (1517AD - 1867AD), Colonial (1867AD - 1952AD), and Modern (1952 - present).

    Prehistory would primarily be Werewolf related stuff, with the Mokole of the Nile, the ancient Bubasti (and other Bastet), the Nagah*, Anansi, and the Silent Strider tribe (maybe others; it's never...

  • Likewise. I have them as the result of an ancient exchange between the Uktena and Mokole, similar to what happened with the African Red Talons. (Caveat: My Pure Land Tribes have always had a much more Creationist take on their origins, dismissing the whole land bridge theory as some silly Euro-centrist superstition, and having understandings - not alliances; even agreements would be too strong of a word, really for creatures so territorial - with the various Fera that they claim would have been impossible had they all been involved with the first War of Rage.)...

  • While the revised edition made the Indian subcontinent the alleged origin site of the Ravnos, they aren't conceptually bound to it anymore than the revised Assamites were to Asia Minor. Even by the Dark Ages, they had major branches in the Mediterranean and Western Europe (and that's not including the "gypsy" one that came later), with the potential for numerous others. They're essentially the Clan of Sin, be it the classic image of the Rakshasa, the mix of pride and greed of the Alexandrite merchant princes, the corrupt hedonism of the Sybarites, or the Phaedymites' constant struggles...

  • Just a brief note about a book coming out in November, Kickback: Exposing the Global Corporate Bribery Network by David Montero. It purports to be a global investigation into corrupt bargains between numerous Fortune 500 companies and various governments, as well as some historical context going back as far as the British East India Company. It looks to be potentially interesting and likely to include a lot of potential inspiration for PENTEX. I'm hoping to be able to read it and comment on it by Christmas.

    Meanwhile, I'm trying to have a post about the music industry done by the...

  • The Mordred, a Metis Silver Fang Theurge, a child of incest (by both mortal and Garou standards) whose father and his advisors tried to have killed at birth, raised by his "witch" mother, possessing a great deal of ruthless cunning and ambition, with the dark destiny of bringing about the end of his father's control over a powerful and noteworthy regional Protectorate.

  • BRADFORD INCORPORATED

    The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality.
    - HL Mencken


    So, I've talked a little previously about private schools, but Bradford (a minor company I admit I forgot about until I went back and found them in the revised Storytellers Handbook) is built to profit off of the public education system. Generally speaking, Bradford promises that they'll produce results...

  • The Rasputin-esque mentally unstable Russian mystic, maybe. It's sometimes hard to keep that sort of thing from descending into stereotypical parody, though.

    Given the tribe's fixation on their history and legacy and the auspice's role as Seeker of the Ways, maybe a historian/genealogist obsessed with seeking out and interviewing Ancestor spirits to uncover lost and forgotten lore of the Tribe....
