  • This has probably been answered in the book itself, but I haven't been able to locate it specifically: How do Major Lair traits work? Some of them appear to be new features, while others are just enhanced versions of Minor traits. Do you acquire them as upgrades to lesser traits, or do they cost more to purchase later on?

    I'm curious, because I'm not really sure what's keeping a Beast from loading themselves up with a bunch of Major traits early on, and coming across as being somewhat overpowered.

  • Anakim Nemesis, the Spider Goddess: Ask anybody who knows about dreams and they'll probably tell you that they're symbolic depictions of your subconscious. If you dream about spiders, it means you're trying to run from your problems, or so the theory goes. This Beast has chosen to capitalize on this fear by preying upon those who attempt to shirk their responsibilities. Whether it's family, work, religion, governance, medicine, convicted criminals or public servants, everybody must make personal sacrifices in their life to ensure that society continues to function. And if they will not offer themselves...

    I feel like trolling and flame wars would fall under something Loki would dive on in a heartbeat. He gets to anonymously prank people across the world and start mass amounts of panic / chaos without leaving the comfort of his Hall?...

  • I would imagine it's a combination of heightened empathy and psycho analysis. You observe and scan the target and learn what you're looking for based on their body language and actions. Of course if you want to relate it to being scary, you could pull off the Hannibal Lecter approach of dropping deep, personal information about somebody during a conversation with them....

    199) Well, son of a bitch; it seems that a bunch of mortals thought they could artificially turn themselves into Scions, via the Bloodborne method of infusing mortals with the blood of the old gods. Unfortunately in this case, 'old gods' refers to the Greater Titans! Somehow, they managed to get their hands on genetic materials from these primordial beings and have been conducting blasphemous, inhumane experiments with them. They believe that their work will grant mortals power akin to those of the gods, and elevate their status in the World. Instead, the only thing their work has managed to do...

    If the gods wanted us to exercise free will, we wouldn't have a concept of good and evil.

    But the 1st edition describes Ares as being some kind of battle crazed maniac. It even says veteran soldiers consider WMD's to be less destructive than him. I don't know if his description has been edited with 2nd edition, or not, though....

  • Well I tried reading about the
    changing breeds, or Fera
    , or whatever they're called and one of them
    (foxes, I think?)
    is mentioned to have two different colored eyes. And since that's the only thing visibly supernatural about Mr. Ox, I thought he might be one.

  • So for somebody who's never played classic WoD (aside from this game), what is Mr. Ox supposed to actually be?

    My guess, from what I've read into the lore, is that he's
    one of the changing breeds of Asia
    , due to
    his different colored eyes
    , but I'm not 100% sure.

    What's a GamerGater?

    And I doubt Ares became less blood thirsty. If modern warfare has taught us anything, it's that Ares didn't think we were killing each other fast enough!

    Athena was a goddess of strategy, wisdom and tactics. Ares was the god of war. In other words, they recognized women for being more self composed, while men were the blood thirsty soldiers....

    196) It was a childish wish, made out of ignorance. Not long ago you (or perhaps a member of the band) performed a service for the Kami and they offered to grant their servant one wish as a reward. Without properly thinking of the consequences, they wished to become "stronger than the strong," believing they would simply receive a divine boost in strength. Unfortunately, that exact phrase has a very specific meaning among the Kami, and now their servant has been transformed into an Oni! They got what they wanted, their strength now far surpasses any mortal man or woman's, but now they're...

    195) "I don't care what the skalds wrote, we did NOT have sex! We were wrestling. There's a difference!" Two rivals Scions with a long history of heated arguments and conflict between them have found themselves in a strange predicament. During their last confrontation, in which they found themselves locked in hand to hand combat while attempting to strangle the life out of each other, one of them somehow got the other one pregnant and now they're fated to give birth to a Giant who will grow up to be an absurdly powerful warrior because he was literally conceived in battle. Nobody knows...

    Extreme Cold + Extreme Heat = Instant mind fuckery!

    But honestly, I'd say that Disruption and Corrosive make for very useful traits. Let's see how well the hunters fight back when they've been stripped of their toys!

    Anthony Gote: If the Begotten consider each other to be part of one extended family, then Anthony is the black sheep who behaves inappropriately at family gatherings. For as long as anyone can remember, Anthony has lived a life of decadence. He wasn't incredibly wealthy, but he also showed no interest in becoming a productive member of society. A hedonist and a lech, Anthony squandered his potential in favor of satisfying his base urges. After his Devouring, this personality became more destructive, because Anthony is no longer content to ruin his own life, but now feels the need to ruin the lives...
