  • Erm... no... it's still "A Game of Modern Fantasy". Horror can be a part of fantasy, but ultimately it's not supposed to be the focus. There was a reason why Changeling was the only WoD game that had a full colour release. Sure, you can play it horror, but it's not like Vampire or Werewolf. Changeling is the whimsy one that has elements of horror.
    Secondly: As said above, designated bad guys that can be killed without remorse subtract from horror. Because they remove ambiguity and doubt. There is nothing more horrifying than having innocent blood on your hands or going too far...

  • To be honest: That sounds extremely boring for an ST to work with. Basically, we have creatures with the moral agency of D&D skeletons that our players can just kill on sight and never worry about again. I mean, it does have more dramatic impact if there was a way to redeem them and the Dauthain refuses, rejecting all hope and actually deciding to be evil, instead of being punished for something that might have been "done to them". Just feels weird that the only way to help victims is to put them out of our misery. Especially in a pretty whimsy game like CtD...

  • Depends on the noble.
    But keep in mind: Killing isn't the same to Changelings as it is to the rest of the WoD. Execution will probably done with Chimerical weapons and the mists will take care for a while (pretty long, since Dautain have really high banality)....

    No, I drew a big red circle around Skinner drills and the effect it has on it's victims (IE: Soldiers). But yes, in the setting, modern drills would lower your humanity, simply because killing become reflex and regret is eased by all the positive stimulus they Pavlov'd into your head. That's not the soldiers fault, it's the fault of the people who need to make them better killers. Or haven't you watched "First Blood"?

    Kammerer I agree to a degree. Though much of inter-human violence is more about posturing and getting a submissive reaction than to outright kill. Just look...

    It does allow you to play a soldier. Because before modern military drilling less than 1/4 of US troops, who had the opportunity to shoot, actually shot at the enemy. Even less shot to kill. There are studies on that. Killing another human is unnatural to most people (exception are psychopaths and, funnily enough, people who are very protective of their next of kin). Modern drilling infuses you with unnatural reflexes and basically has you kill before you think. So soldiers simply have a lower humanity because that is what modern drillings are all about....
