  • Alabama would, at my guess, primarily Fianna and Uktena, with a fair mix of Furies, CoG, Get, Lords, and Striders scattered about, and Glass Walker groups in Birmingham an Mobile (and individual ones in other areas)....

  • Renegades are interesting because they can be anything from traditional social reformers and utopian idealists to nationalist freedom fighters and classically liberal constitutionalists, before you even start touching on things like would be filibusters, outlaw gangs, underground conspiracies, and even factions led by real world historical people.

    Unfortunately, this makes it hard for them to cooperate with each other....

  • There is a book I keep meaning to read, Burnt Jesus by Landon Alspiret, in which the protagonist finds himself sucked into a crossdimensional murder mystery involving multiple Jesusi who are all identified by the way they were executed in their dimensions (burnt, mauled, atomic?, etc.). I've no idea if it's any good or if it has any bearing on the above. I just felt like sharing....

  • I could see a Child of Gaia making the argument that they are somehow "redeeming" their lover's soul through the power of love or something, with the understanding that inevitably the person will have to "die" as part of trying to have something anywhere close to a natural existence and not become totally disconnected from their sense of humanity. (And I say that as the person who is usually the first to point out how and why the undead are a complete blasphemy against everything the Garou believe in.)

  • It is feasible that such a character has a preexisting relationship with a Lupine lover that has survived the Embrace, with said lover allowing the character to feed on them. In such a case, one might go with Merits of True Love and Werewolf Companion and the Flaws of Dark Secret and Dark Fate, with at least 3 dots in Allies to represent said companion/lover and perhaps some level of Herd to represent how easily the character can contact their sole source of food.

  • Chinese is somewhat difficult to translate into English, as the accepted rules for spelling, pronunciation, and such have changed and updated repeatedly over the past century, which only compounds the usual translation issues of homophones, verb tenses, plural nouns, and all the other grammar traps. Plus phrases and word usage that make no sense outside of cultural context. (Seriously, try translating the lyrics to NWA's "Straight Outta Compton" into any other language.) On top of this, up until about 50 years ago, when most of the English speaking world mentioned the "Chinese"...

  • Sure. Just keep in mind that it's Google Translate Chinese, so is probably a little wonky.

  • Incidentally, Wu Nung means "peasant witch/shaman", so it could very well be a name the Wu Lung gave them (similar to the Hermetics and "Hedge Wizards") rather than what they actually call themselves. Similar to how Wu Keng means "pit witch" more or less. (For a few years, I've started to doubt if Wu Lung is even what the Dragons properly refer to themselves as.)

    Wu Nung might be Jingshen Men (spirit gates); Wu Keng as Bianzhi Mingyun (weavers of fate); Wu Lung as Diguo Wushi Bu (Imperial Ministry of Wizards)? Just a thought....

  • Yeah, the Simba are kind of the exception, though the lion social structure is a bit different than canines (something Brian Campbell used to go on and on about ad nauseam on every single WW message board and forum). This is part of what made the Endless Storm so dangerous, IIRC.

    Which, in a setting with such a mythic-creation style cosmology as Werewolf, raises the odd question of do lions form prides because the Simba were trying to mimic the Garou after the war of rage? (Probably not, but it's interesting to ponder.)

    And I have occasionally toyed with the idea that...

  • As the saying goes, a lone wolf is a dead wolf. They are designed to work in groups, and for the Garou, the pack is their greatest strength and edge against their enemies. Bastet, on the other hand, are designed to function mainly on their own for long periods of time. (Exactly how well this is reflected in their various form bonuses/stats is a never ending debate that has been going on since about a week after the first edition Players' Guide dropped.)

    In a purely one on one physical match up, a Khan or Simba could probably win, while Balam, Baghera, and Pumonica would probably...

    replied to East/Central African Pantheons?
    One group I'm aware of but not an expert on is the Kalenjin ethnic groups in Kenya. While almost all of them in the modern age are Christian or Muslim, their older religion had the usual all powerful righteous sky god, as well as a lesser thunder god and two rival lightning gods (one evil and one good). Asis was their primary sky god. (They also have a fairly cool regional monster, the Nandi Bear [though it sounds more like a giant hyena in its physical description], which eats the brains of its victims, usually disobedient children.)

    There's also the Dinka [religion/folklore/mythology?],...

  • A lot of times anything I do in a specific location will be heavily influenced by writers I like who set their work there. Anything I've set in Miami, for example, is very heavily influenced by Carl Hiaasen's novels and newspaper columns, while the Four Corners region draws on Tony Hillerman's work, and New England on Stephen King's early stuff. This applies to historical periods as well, such as anything in Victorian England being influenced by Anne Perry and others....

  • I include it mainly because in Ars Magica, the inclusion of non-"True Magick" (I forget what term ArsM uses for it) users as full members is one of their primary hooks.

    Also, I had no idea if the game was going to be set before or after the outing of the Tremere, so they're there if they're needed.

    The bulk of them are 3 or 4 freebie points of abilities, backgrounds, or a merit....

  • This may be a helpful starting place:

    Bjornaer - Heartbeast, the totem animal that inherently represents the character's true nature; tied to the character's [Dark Ages' term for Avatar]; when taking the form of her Heartbeast via Anima, the character is never in danger of losing herself to the identity of the animal form and difficulty on rolls to change shape is 2 less.
