  • I've been running a Demon the Fallen campaign with my troupe for about 2 1/2 years, playing once/week or once every two weeks over roll20. We play in 1-2 hour sessions, taking as many sessions as we need to finish a story (anywhere from 2-8 sessions). It's awesome. Some of us have kids (including me), and it's pretty easy to carve out an hour or two on a week night. We just did session 80 last week, nearing the end of the chronicle. We will have completed 23 stories.

    Not to derail the topic too much, but I'd be interested to know what you like about Mummy 2nd ed over resurrection (I've never played any yet, so it interests me)...

    Honestly, I think the Amenti would have the biggest threat from Spectres. They are so purely anti-Oblivion and powerful that I have to think they'd attract a lot of negative attention. That's why I liken them more to the Ferrymen. At the end of the day, Hierarchy or Spectres will probably think something like, "You're a dead man! Just as soon as my friends show up. And my friends' friends. Any minute now. Yep...just you wait."

    As for the dictum Mortum, a strong argument could be made that it doesn't apply to them because they are the Undying. Still, I could see The Hierarchy...

    Lord Vil and AkatsukiLeader13:

    My thinking behind this is to preserve the unique concepts of these two game lines while making them accessible to new and old players. I can honestly say that I love all the splats from the original WoD. I want to see them get their day with an updated veneer, and it make sense to address them in Wraith; not to go too meta, but maybe addressing Wraith, Mummy, and Kuei-Jin in one book might make it more appealing broadly to the masses...you know, like purifying the imperfections through merging the best part of the game lines..


    Seriously...

    Also adding to my previous comment, I'm guessing the Ferrymen would honor their previous bargain with Anubis, as he taught them the ritual of severance in exchange for protection of Amenti:

    I think I'd agree with your intuition that the Amenti would be viewed as dangerous by the Hierarchy. My guess is that knowledge about them and attitudes towards them would be somewhat akin to how the Restless Dead view Ferrymen - some appreciate them, some despite or tolerate them, but all more or less fear and respect their power. Keep in mind two other things that would ensure that Amenti aren't killed flat out by Stygia: 1) There are too many fish to fry with Stygia rebuilding, which could lead to a "we'll get to you...eventually" or a "we'll get to you when we get the chance"...

    Ah, the answer I think. Came across it today from Ends of Empire, p. 149:

    "Persephone (from Risen)

    The oldest of the Risen, Persephone tries to flee into the Skinlands when she receives warnings of the incipient Maelstrom. Her Shadow delays her crossing just long enough, however, and she ends up crossing the Shroud at the precise moment the Maelstrom hits. Some form of resonance ensues, and wraiths by the thousands are blown across the Shroud into the Skinlands. Some possess bodies that are not their own, some return to their own rotting cadavers, and some are simply...
