    replied to What Renowns mean?
    I'm more of the camp that believes that cunning relies on two parts misdirection and using an opponent's strength against them. Indeed, the very definition of cunning relies on deceit or ingenuity. "Fight smart, not hard" may be an oversimplification, as it is but one example of being cunning. In the Sample Acts of Cunning, the first example is "Infiltrating an enemy nest". This isn't necessarily smarter than say, staying at home and letting them come to your home turf, or arranging a problematic third party to harass the enemy nest while your pack waltzes in, unimpeded and...

    replied to Wolf-Blooded game help
    One of the Wolf-blooded Tells is to treat the affected Wolf-blood as a lvl 1 loci. This will make it VERY easy to justify materializing spirits without needing an external loci, or introducing Claimed or Ridden so early in the game....

  • Yes, tribal ban notwithstanding.



    They would give an ultimatum. Even though they won't bring them into the Ivory Claws proper, they aren't averse to bringing in outsiders to the Pure in general, handing them off to another tribe, like the Fire-Touched or Predator Kings, or even under their own service but likely placed the lowest of the totem pole. In The Pure sourcebook, within the section on Ivory Claws, it discusses the Pure tribes feelings on the other Uratha. They are not averse to recruiting previously Forsaken.

    The Pure, pg 83, second paragraph of...

  • Tribal Renown is very powerful. Don't neglect it. It's the thing that helps define each Forsaken tribe from the other, and what they (as a tribal culture) value above all else. It is so strong that some of the Pure can muster respect for a Forsaken who values the Renown they also value.

    For example, Ivory Claws would likely make every effort to recruit a local Stormlord Cahalith or Blood Talon Elodoth into their ranks even if those Forsaken are flat broke and powerless. Assets can be gained and people bribed, but Renown? Renown is a wealth difficult to come by. It's like when a local...

  • As nofather stated, I believe it's an artifact, but not of the original editions, but the transition drafts from 1E to 2E. It's my belief that since Tribes didn't really have a staple Prey in 1E that they were meant to target, and since Werewolves Must Hunt is the natural instinct, the Instincts in that draft would ultimately become The Prey outlined in the Tribe sections in 2e....

  • The Shadow is a warped reflection, not an exact reflection. Time (and Space) don't follow the same rules. A long demolished hospital can still appear in the Shadow decades later, provided that the essence resonated from the hospital was not overwhelmed by newer essences. Inversely, a tiny hovel, which provided strong emotions of security and wellbeing, might look to appear as a fortified palace in the shadow. It's all about the spirits that the essence attracts and feeds. In your case, an asylum could be perfectly fitting provided that the essences of the asylum could support them. A very large...

  • To direct aggravated damage, yes. Indirect aggravated damage is a different story.

    And as to the above, regarding having trouble considering limb loss as not aggravated. There are lots of in game examples that consider Arm and Leg Wrack without Aggravated damage. They aren't mutually exclusive. In fact, you could suffer these tilts without taking any Lethal damage but bashing damage. Sprains and dislocations are not Lethal, and in some cases only arguably qualify as Bashing.

    Regarding Wracks as being Damage at all:
    If a PC has just had all their limbs dislocated...

  • Third Nipple Tell, in addition to highly emotional or catastrophic concepts put into action. Since a twin is essentially (see what I did there), very much like yourself, the essence you naturally resonate is very much the essence your twin would benefit most from and seek out....

  • I think part of this is an issue with how you chose to deal with the Gauntlet and this Tell.
    Even if PCs enter the Shadow through the Gauntlet at the same point (a reflective surface, Waystone Wolf-Blooded, or a locus), the PCs are not guaranteed to actually make it through at the same place or even the same time, or even at all. Your player's Shadow Twin isn't necessarily going to poof into the realm imprisoned, regardless of your PC being imprisoned. It isn't like a multiple personality. They don't share the same space. It could happen, if your Shadow Twin were constantly being tugged...
