  • And that sounds like a problem. because most, if not all, of their powers are based around how high their Lair rating is at the time. Having a Lair of 0 would effectively mean any of those powers become completely useless. Hence my thoughts on how their Lair is considered to be functionally halted at whatever rating it was prior to going Rampant.


    Example: Alien Allure - Adds your Lair dots to Manipulation




    On the other hand, becoming Rampant does get an optional bonus to Skills and Attributes based on how high your Lair was prior to Inherit...

  • Looming Presence is an Atavism, isn't it?

    Rampant Beasts can still access their Atavisms, they're allowing their horror to physically enter and merge with their bodies. They lose access to their Nightmare powers, though.


    In fact, one of the example Rampants in the book actually has Looming Presence, although it does nothing to explain how it works for her.


    My guess is that Looming Presence effectively gives you whatever your lair was at the time of Inheritance, but can't be increased further....

    Woops, just realized I made a mistake. The water demon story is part of Chinese mythology, not Japanese. And the demon's name was Gonggong.

    Anyways, if you want to know more about the Titans, this list could help. ...

    It would be kind of weird if they came out publicly and said "We hate the Japanese!"

    But if they're secretly working to undermine them, then no, that's fine. Also, I think said water demon was eventually destroyed. It was just listed as one example of its past minions....

    Hundun exists without a stable form and who's realm is in constant flux. Instead of creating Avatars, it prefers to corrupt other beings (especially Scions) into its service by offering them great power and knowledge....

    Gaia, and it's respective avatars, seem to specialize in the creation of various life forms. Many of its creations are chimerical in nature, so the idea of a cult using genetic modification is not unfeasible.


    The problem is that Gaia prefers a world untouched by modern civilization. It represents the world in its natural state, free of human interference. If they're going to use genetic modification and worship the Titan of the World, their methods would be less about secret laboratories and more in the realm of pagan breeding programs and occult bonding rituals.

    replied to Specifics of Inheritance?
    Okay, so I got to the part where it talks about it more in depth. One possible feature of the Incarnate inheritence allows your to "gain a size" equal to your Lair. Assuming I interpret that as your Lair being added to your normal size (instead of replacing it), that would mean an 8 to 10 Lair incarnate could grow to be anywhere between Size 13 to Size 15, and that's without taking any size effecting Merits like "Giant!"


    So an Incarnate busts out their monster form and this happen:

    188) Something isn't right; natural disasters have been spontaneously occurring throughout the country. I don't mean they occur without reason, I mean one second everything is fine and then in an instant you're suddenly in the middle of a hurricane, or an earthquake, a flash flood, est. It would require an immense level of concentrated Chaos in order to perform a feat like this, and you can't think of anybody in recent memory capable of pulling that off.

    Oh wait... didn't you hear about a new Band consisting almost entirely of Tricksters emerging a few months ago?

  • Except that at some point the Tremere perform a ritual that obliterates all Tremere antitribu.

    But as I understand it, the reason the Tzimisce don't join the Camarilla is largely because the Camarilla believe in maintaining their humanity, while the Tzimisce perceive it as a weakness to be discarded. The path of metamorphosis specifically encourages them to do monstrous, inhuman acts in the hope of achieving transcendence....

    Idea for Fiction Material: A homecoming story involving two best friends who are tragically placed on opposite sides of a war when one of them turns out to be a Beast and the other is a Hero.

    Apparently every dot of Lair beyond 5th adds 50 years to your life span. Assuming the maximum rating is 10, that adds 250 years for a full powered Beast.

    The longest living humans on record managed to reach 122 years old before they finally died.

    So, assuming the Beast is extremely healthy, their maximum life span is roughly 370 years.

    The Frosts: while all Begotten see themselves as family on some historical level, some of the children are family in a more literal sense. The Frosts are one such example, a Brood who are related to one another by blood. It consists of five members including the father (Anthony Frost), the mother (Heather Frost), and their three lovely children (Michael, Winter, and Lily).

    Interesting of note is that despite all being related to each other in the human world, their Horrors actually trace their lineages to different family origins. Each member of the Frosts are a different kind of...
