    replied to Ravnos Controversy
    Eradicating them is fine, since the Ravnos were pretty much driven to the point of near extinction by the Week of Nightmares, but striking their name from vampire society seems to be going a little overboard just to not offend people. If your players were that upset about it, you could just as easily have said the Ravnos never existed and ignore / rewrite any lore that involved them.

    I mean, how exactly did everybody just forget the Ravnos existed? Vampires are a deeply political society and they have long memories of outstanding contracts, bargains, offenses, land disputes and so...

    replied to Slaugh / Lasombra
    Been watching videos talking about WoD recently and they brought up that the mechanics from each game line don't blend well with the other games. For example, a point of strength in werewolf is more / less effective than a point of strength in vampire, and so on. So they're meant to be played separately; Chronicles of Darkness is another story, though.

    The only major thing that seems to connect them all is the meta plot in which all the different game lines have some manner of involvement. But mechanically, it's difficult to pull off....

    As I understand it, no. The classic world of darkness games are intended to be their own separate settings (meta plot, not withstanding). Vampires may exist within Changeling and Changelings may exist within Vampire, but they're not the same kind of Vampires / Changelings.

    replied to Creating BtP Horrors
    Yeah, it says a Beast who undergoes the Retreat becomes an ephemeral being and is treated as such (a lot of their template is switched out). So if you want to create something like that, then it's probably your best option.

    And the Horror only retains their Beast's memories if they score an Exceptional Success during the Retreat, which means it's typically very rare.

    replied to Fae-ify It!
    Here's a Berserk conversion!


    The Idea of Evil: not all ideas are good ones, and some in particular are especially detrimental to society. The Idea of Evil is an ancient, primordial Fey from the dawn of mankind's earliest existence. It claims to have been granted life by humanity's inability to accept the chaos of the world. Bad things didn't just happen for no reason, there had to be a cause. This philosophy gave birth to the beings we know now. It's soul existence revolves around giving humans a reason for their suffering. It has been watching our world, manipulating the laws...

    I was gonna do Lethal damage, but I'm not sure how acid works. I assumed it was similar to fire burns.

    Anyways, went back and downgraded Normal and Low effects to lethal. Kept aggravated for satiety expenditure....

    Corrosive Blood [Namtaru]

    In addition to her iconic power of turning mortals to stone with a gaze, the mythical Gorgon was also said to have blood that was so potently corrosive, mortal weapons would dissolve upon piercing her skin. Beasts with this Atavism share a degree of her legendary power, making ordinary tools and weapons difficult to wield against them. This Atavism offers no protection against the Chosen Blade anathema that heroes might have access to.

    Dice Pool: N/A

    Action: Reflexive

    Normal Effect: The blood that flows through the Beast's...

  • It would be incredibly detrimental to being a Beast if they were worried about such things. But they don't really need breaking points anyways. If a Beast acts without reason, that tends to attract the attention of Heroes and irate family members who want to stage an 'intervention' about their poor behavior....

    replied to Beast Questions
    1 - Either, Or. The main thing about Beasts is that they embody a primordial fear (weakness, destruction, the unknown depths, open exposure and that which is abhorrent), something that mankind has dreaded since they first emerged on this earth. However, the manner in which you represent that fear can be modernized for the time period you're in. Monsters of today might look very different from the monsters of our ancestors, but the underlying themes remain the same.


    2. I believe it does, yes. I don't remember exactly where, but I think there's a section in the book that provides...

  • The tale of him coming back to life 3 days later is well known, but I could have sworn it was also mentioned that he was on the cross of three days before succumbing to his injuries.


    Also, while he was dead, he was apparently traveling around the Underworld, liberating the souls of the damned from other pantheons (such as the Greco-Roman). So one might say that the crucifixion marked the transition from Hero to Demigod, and his resurrection marked his apotheosis to Godhood.

  • Meh, it's a coin toss. Some Christians believe Jesus was an individual, and others (i.e Catholics, i.e half the Christian population) believe he was an avatar of God, himself.

    But as for him having epic Stamina, keep in mind that he was mercilessly whipped, had his limbs dislocated and was nailed to a cross by his wrists and feet, stabbed in the side with a spear, and bore a crown of thorns. All of this and it still took him 3 days on the cross before he finally died. That sounds like somebody who doesn't go down easily....

    I hate ass holes who drive their car around the streets just so they can slam on the breaks and make ear piercing screeches while leaving skid marks!

    The fact it happens multiple times within a few minutes of each other means you're doing it on purpose. I see through your bullshit!

  • More on the topic of statting him, we can take a look at the stories told about him to get an estimate of how he'd work mechanically. Epic Wisdom and Charisma are obvious, but what about physical attributes? To my knowledge, there aren't really any stories that depict the Abrahamic God of performing great feats of physical Strength and Dexterity. Stamina is a possibility, because of the whole Crucifixion thing.

    As for his Purviews: Health, Fertility, Sun, Animal, Guardian and Psychopomp would be the most iconic powers within his arsenal. Along with some less specialized talent in...
