  • Trying to use a vault product as an alternative to the existing submissions method is basically like trying to charge someone for the pleasure of reading your resume. Speaking only for myself, it's okay to mention that you've got some vault products in your cover letter, but no, I wouldn't ask Dixie to hire you for my books based on a vault product alone.

  • I realise this is a bit of a necro, but... Mages effectively have two vices, as they regain Willpower through exceptional successes on their spells without any limits *as well* as having a mortal Vice....

  • Hey, I just got an extra XP out of it.

    So the thing about playing games you wrote on, that you don't Develop, is that sometimes rules change between the writers' email list and the book. I could have sworn it was a Willpower dot, but no - just looked it up.

    And in my defense, I'm not the only OPP freelancer in this gaming group.


    Ahem.

    Aaaaaanyways. Yes - relinquishing is meant to cost xp. Only we can't make it cost xp, so we make it cost Willpower dots instead, which means it costs XP....

  • 1xp is the same price, to put it into perspective, that vampires pay for the embrace.

    And when playing vampire a few weeks ago, I still embraced someone in order to test an artifact we'd found that was supposed to kill Kindred, because it was cool. So what if I'm now permanently 5 whole beats "behind" the other players?

    You wouldn't churn out Imbued Item after Imbued Item without some other way of relinquishing or serious recompense, which is why dedicated crafters in the Orders are lauded, looked after, and well-paid.

  • We could always try "Chronicles of White Wolf."

    But seriously - NuWW as short for "The new White Wolf" to distinguish Paradox's rpg imprint from old White Wolf (CCP's rpg imprint) does not seem disparaging to me. When the difference doesn't matter, they're just White Wolf.

  • The Newly-Awakened Template is in Signs. I will not spooil all of it, but you may assume;

    They get the extra Resistance Attribute dot

    They get two dots in one Ruling Arcanum and one dot in the other

    They have Wisdom 8, no matter how much Integrity they used to have

    All Supernatural Merits, conditions, tilts, and effects on them are destroyed - Awakening removes things like your telekinesis Merit, but it also removes blood bonds, Demon pacts, etc.

    They have no Rotes, rote skills, or the dot of occult from being in an Order

  • Yes - the Minister of Mammon is, canonically, a Mastigos. Also an Adept.

    No....

    replied to Are we ok?
    I'm completely disinterested in working for a WoD book, whether it's OPP or White Wolf that do it. A couple of freelancers cross over, but that just means we'd hire someone else if a particular one were busy on a WW book at that specific time.

    If the person at Paradox/White Wolf we send books to for approval changes, I can't see it doing much to the Chronicles' throughput.

    What *would* have an impact on resources OPP spends on Chronicles? How much WW takes as their license fee. And I can't see that changing. (Nor do I know what it is!)...
