  • Clan Friendship: Brujah. Boom.

    Granted, all of this - literally all of this - is up to your ST. BUT if your ST is just looking for justification, there you are....

  • All I know is what Rose said a few months ago, which is that the Julii and the Pijavica are going to be given a write-up. Obviously we know all about the Julii already, but I run Requiem for Rome using B&S rules fairly often and I'd like to see what their new Clan Bane is, instead of just using the Ventrue one for them. I'd also like to see any additional things they add, like maybe the Julii aren't quite as extinct as you might think. (With how far out in Europe their blood spread, I find it a little hard to believe the entire Clan is truly gone. Though my assumption was always that the survivors...

  • I massively appreciate your description, Satchel. Flowery descriptions of Changeling locations always get me excited to try it out (once 2e finally hits the shelves...metaphorically.)

    I checked out the description of Equinox Road on DTRPG and it even says there that it's 'end game' material.

    FWIW, I was only wondering because I didn't know if I was right about Arcadia being a place you avoided at all cost and was otherwise End Game, or whether that was a weird house interpretation....

  • I was only being a little glib. I knew there had to be more to the Hedge, but I was always told it was just a place where you could buy magic groceries. Labyrinth of Fear and Lost Souls definitely adds to the interest factor.

    And yeah, so, I guess it really just is that - Arcadia is a distant, out-of-scope setting. I just didn't know if some of your average game was supposed to take place there in addition to backstory....

  • Can Changelings go back to Arcadia?

    This might seem like a weird question but bear with me.

    I've only actually played a few sessions of a Changeling game once, so I'm not as familiar as y'all here in the Changeling forum.

    To my VERY LIMITED (!!!) understanding, there are three major "worlds" in Changeling:

    The Mundane World: Our world. No differences.

    The Hedge: A mystical "World Between The Worlds" where people from various "Arcadian Realms" come together to sell produce. (???)

    Arcadia: The world of fantasy, story, and wonder.

  • Everyone in CofD (except maybe Mages) is nerfed compared to WoD because they are trying to do different things. WoD has more of an "epic" scope, with lore beyond lore and names and personalities and clashes of titans. CofD is more individual, personal, and, for lack of a better word, realistic. (I say lack of a better word because it is unproven that vampires and werewolves exist outside of fiction.)

    ...the only exception, again, being Mage, where you're still all-powerful and world destroying.

    I don't know what you said before, but I'm glad you're taking this approach. So far you've been a voice of reason in this thread and I'm sure we all appreciate it....

  • On the one hand, I have never had issue keeping games balanced with 2e core alone. I only recently got Sacraments and Blasphemies and I'm not too into it, honestly.

    On the other hand, my players don't even read the books and don't pay attention to crunch or make builds, they just make characters they like, so maybe if I had more build-y crunchy players, it would be more obvious.

  • I nerfed the Pandorans significantly.

    I basically made the recommended Attribute dots under Rank into the amount of character dots, period, to distribute on their character sheets. I checked the percentage of dots that normally went into something -

    0.15 - Primary Att
    0.13 - Secondary Attribute
    0.11 - Tertiary Attribute

    0.20 - Primary Skill
    0.13 - Secondary Skill
    0.08 - Tertiary Skill

    0.20 - Merits

    And then took the amount of dots suggested in the Ranks and split them by those percentages. I also, then, made...

    Thank you Matt for your detailed explanations.

    I really just can't be too angry at the roleplaying industry and the way it pays its freelancers. Writing books is hard work, but it's a very weak industry that's really only hanging on for dear life outside of Wizards of the Coast, and they get most of their money off Magic: The Gathering anyhow. This isn't some super conglomerate not valuing their employees and paying them shit, it's one dude desperately trying to keep a dying industry alive out of love for the intellectual property who is (possibly??) doing some shady shit because...

    As you understand it, yes. But according to David in his most recent Facebook post, OPP had a new developer lined up for several months, and was indeed keeping the project in development despite the developer being finished with the project and having his final draft turned in.

    In other words, OPP had terminated him months before his actual leave, or must have somehow been planning for him to leave months in advance. David had zero intention of leaving until they hired his stalker Zak S, and left OPP because WW hired his stalker Zak S. He left because of Zak S. It was a sudden kind...

  • More info -

    Fiancee's character's name is Zita. Her creator died - having spent his entire life researching the alchemy necessary to actually create her, he only actually got to spend a few years with her - leaving her all alone. It was only after her creator died that she was forced to realize how inhuman she actually was and how unwelcome she is in the world. She's on the Refinement of Stannum, because - as effectively a child in body and mind - she's really really really really pissed off. She's a street kid, and her Role is "Savage." Elpis is "Respect" and...

  • uh, so, getting back to what you actually said, it is pretty clear that Requiem as a whole - fluff and power - changed around the time Requiem for Rome came out (which I think is when Rose took over as dev so yeah) and I always saw 2e/Blood and Smoke as a solidification and summary of Rose-era Requiem, which, imo, makes it a better and more complete game than the entirety of 1e, which was always sort of waffling between "this is Masquerade but better guys" original intent and Rose-era Requiem.

    I'm a big fan of the Great Dev Shift halfway through Requiem. I think it's fa...

  • I like all of this. Possibly most importantly, my fiancee liked your suggestion on the Disquiet and definitely wants to go with that. Since her character looks like a child, it's unlikely that people are going to be trying to rip her apart with torches and pitchforks, but people and society do far worse to children in order to 're-educate' them when they don't behave how we want them to behave. It'll be a fun dynamic, to be sure....

  • So Cinder, your mentioning the tradition of puppet-making inspired my fiancee to make her character. She's a Galateid created in the style of Pinocchio - the lifelong ambition of an old puppeteer who viewed his puppets as his children, and wanted to bring one to life to be his daughter. She has the body of a young girl, so I gave her the Small-Framed merit for free. I also decided to give Shamash the Giant merit for free. She's still in the process of figuring out the rest of her character at the moment, but there's a start....

  • Arcanist - I was a big fan of Scion once, so my first reaction to hearing the name "Shamash" was to say "wait, the Sun God?" and had to be told it was also the first candle in the Menorah. We thought it was kind of a cool little double meaning. I really appreciate your post. It gives me a lot of places to start regarding homework. Also, we're on the same page when it comes to Milestones - I really want the pilgrimage to develop organically, with as little preparation as possible. I think preparation regarding the pilgrimage can help when you've got a big throng, but with a...
