  • It's extremely frustrating when they don't leave the captions on the screen long enough for me to read them, and it happens all too often in some shows....

  • Seducing someone who wouldn't normally be interested? Sure. Talking your way out of a speeding ticket and convincing the cop not to search your car? Definitely!



    "Do Your Gott-Dammed Homework, Kid!" "Sit down, pay attention, stop squirming, stop looking out the window, don't you dare chew gum in my class, etc." Makes sense to me....

  • In some cases you'll need to take his metis deformity into account. If you're in the wilderness, deer and elk antlers make good, durable chew toys, and would probably be good for when he's teething. Metis cubs, just like human children, will probably make up games and create toys out of whatever is in their environment, so you may not have to provide much artificial stuff in the first place. If you want to give him a teddy bear, he'll just have to learn from experience that chewing and clawing it will destroy it....

    I'd argue that using your teeth in a way that's not intended to injure will not deal aggravated damage. This is why your dog doesn't do lethal damage to you every time he puts his mouth on you, and you don't do bashing damage every time you lay hands on someone. There's a difference between a touch, a grab, a nip, and a bite, and not all bites are full-strength, just as there's a difference between a touch, a grab, a slap, and a punch, and not all punches are haymakers. Since disciplining a wolf pup doesn't require dealing out serious puncture wounds, like a serious fight would, I don't think...

  • If you want to go globetrotting around the world and stay connected to your kinfolk, wolf kin won't work, but that's a particular condition in your particular game that prevents their usefulness. Maybe that player didn't anticipate or understand where the story was going to go?

    If you're worried about the diminishing population of Garou in the world, you'll have noticed that wolves can easily bear you 5 times as many cubs as humans, and those cubs will reach maturity in a couple of years rather than a couple of decades. If your sept has a lupus-wolf kin couple, they can have a litter...

  • In the wilderness, where everything is gritty and they don't have electrical sockets, it would be more practical to keep a book or handwritten notes than rely on a smartphone app. Also cell phones are sooo apey-weavery, and they're going to get you picked on, especially by the lupus. On the other hand, those scenes with "Bitchy the Glasswalker Noob" could be entertaining for the whole table!...

  • Then that's probably just a house rule our storyteller uses to resolve ties quickly in certain kinds of contested rolls. Also when a character rolls something like multiple 9s or 10s on an information-gathering roll, he'll reward that with a little extra detail....

  • It definitely gets easier to watch subtitles with more practice, but I prefer to be able to rewind subtitled shows, because sometimes you really do miss something and want to run it back.



    It's funny you say that, because something that takes me right out of Dragonball Super is the later version of the intro music when the singer says "I can't get no satisfaction" in English. It's like your mom awkwardly trying to say something "cool." I'm not saying the DB Super intros are particularly "balling" in the first place, and I realize the whole...

  • I'm gradually becoming more of an anime fan, but I occasionally have a hard time deciding whether to watch the shows with English subtitles or dubbed into English. I've heard that in some cases, like Cowboy Bebop, the English dubbed version is just as good, if not preferable, and I don't disagree. On the other hand, the English dubbing loses some of the original voice actor's emotional expression, and when you hear the same English dubbed voices over and over in different shows, it's as bad as the "same face syndrome."

    So my question for the thread is whether anyone has...

    I wasn't going to say that, but I did think it.



    WtA is definitely in the fantasy genre. I'm surprised you say lupus and metis rarely get included, but maybe that's just my table. The original pack had two homids, two lupus, and two metis, but a couple of the players moved away, and one couldn't keep coming, but our two lupus PCs are still at the table. The sept includes two other NPC lupus and two NPC metis. I suppose a sept with 4 lupus and a couple of metis out of less than 20 Garou is uncommon, but it's an "open" bone gnawer caern, and they'll take...

  • Which successes do rolled ones negate?

    Imagine your character rolls the following result against a difficulty of 6: (10, 9, 8, 4, 1). According to the rules, the 1 negates one of your successful rolls, which in this case are (10, 9, 8). How do you decide which success is negated by the 1? There will be cases where it doesn't matter, but an example of where it could matter is in a contested roll, where the rival rolled (9, 9, 4). If the 1 negates the lowest success, then your (10, 9) could be considered a win over the rival's (9, 9), but if the 1 negates the highest success, the rival's (9, 9) at least ties your (9, 8).

  • If you're deep in the wilderness, you might want scissors, awls, needles, thread, etc., for craft work, mending clothes, cutting hair, and as first aid tools for injured kinfolk in need. Also think of farming tools if you're going to have more than a vegetable garden. You might also like to try your hand at making moonshine or homebrewing beer, which will take some large but fairly low-tech equipment.

    replied to How do groups handle Mind control?
    From what I read on wrymfoe.com, at 3 successes the targets treat you as their alpha, so essentially they're loyal to you and will take orders from you while the effects last. For a werewolf, whether Gaian or BSD, I figure that would mean the targets would be willing to do whatever they'd normally be willing to do for their own pack's alpha, and at 4 successes they might take serious risks for the sake of their "alpha" though even at 5 successes it's qualified as "near suicidal." So "kill yourself" isn't going to work, but orders to fight with or for you likely would,...

    replied to Sept hospitality questoins
    If the urban sept is managed by Bone Gnawers, the whole sept might be a village of tents, where the seniors live in more well-established spaces like big tents or dry quarters in the unoccupied building on the block. There would also likely be homes built up with the "Cardboard Palace" gift, and the lower in station might have to do with shelter they can scrounge up on their own. If it's a Glass Walker sept, the "tent" could be a tool shed in somebody's back yard, and the "cabin" could be somebody's basement, garage, or attic apartment, or for some flair, Carl's place...

  • Off the top of my head: knives, fishing nets, rope, buckets, shovels and other landscaping tools ... the homids might prefer bowhunting over hunting as wolves ... any simple tool that's helpful for cooking over a fire pit, like a dutch oven or cast iron pan, seems reasonable. Are you going to start fires by summoning fire spirits, or would you like to have flint on hand? Having a small reflective piece of something, like a mirror, would be super useful for stepping sideways in a dry climate where it's hard to find a reflective surface in the landscape. Also there's a portrait in the W20 core book...
