    No, but it was in Orpheus the gameline.

    This is actually the very subtle danger that Orpheus presents: they are using science to pierce the Shroud, not magic. They can reproduce their results. Give them more time, and they will burn the entire setting down. The afterlife is real. Ghosts are real. It will hit every society in the world, every person, and it will shake Stygia down to the foundations.

    White Wolf AB didn’t insist on this change, by the way. This has been present since Shadow Games....

    I'd say yes, at that point, they lose a bit of Willpower. But...

    "Baby, I want to bite your neck so hard. I want to taste your blood."
    "Mm, yeah."
    "You want that? For me to lap it up?"
    "Ohh, yeah..."

    It does, and doesn't. I spent a lot of time wording the exact phrasing in DAV20 to get it right. Mainly, it requires affirmative consent ("yes, you may take my blood") but not informed consent ("you may take x blood points") and that goosing someone's brain with Presence is totally fine - not ethically, but as far as the weakness goes. Presence is effectively the same as an equipment bonus, so sort of the same as a glass of wine - for good or ill.

    There are people who consider even a single glass of wine to be unacceptably manipulative - even coercive - to someone's...

    So, hello, I wrote the Salubri for DA: V20, and for Lore of the Bloodlines.

    If he's not actually willing to create a Herd, develop Presence, or seduce scholars, by the rules I wrote he CAN just feed by spending the Willpower point. I'm unsure if the V20 proper rules have that in there, but Dark Ages definitely does. Also keep in mind that he can just straight-up head into a favela and offer to cure people of diseases in exchange for their blood.

    What it honestly sounds like is that the player doesn't want to engage with the problems of a restrictive clan flaw in an interesting...

    As others have noted, they're heavy, but also you're doing it as an extended action - so milestones.

    You're not grabbing and hucking both of them at once, are you?...

    I am unsure, but would be willing to consult with Allen on the topic. Do you have a good argument?



    I think that'd be pretty cool, wouldn't you?...

  • Good Mind and Bad Mind are in there due to the slightly greater importance of them in general Iroquois mythology - in a lot of tribes they (apparently) tend to predominate. I talked with my writer about making them mantles of Nana and Cheeby, as you said, but since Nana'b'oozoo already has Wiskadjek as an explicit mantle and the list of Gods was already small, we decided to spin off the two Gods into their own little angry cousin fight on the side of the family....

    I've flagged that for correction. You can choose the same Skill for all three Paths, you just can't have a Skill that goes over 5, so you need to redistribute your dots....
