  • I can't stop thinking about the fact that:

    1. A Doppelgänger can come about from a human experiencing a moment of trauma;

    2. When a changeling strengthens her Mask, her shadow still reveals her true self;

    3. Vampires don't show up correctly in mirrors or recordings;

    and

    4. In Iremite metaphysics, the shadow is the pillar of the soul related to death, ghosts, and one's darker impulses.

    What could it all mean? Possibly nothing. Or maybe something important, something really important.

  • Think of motelys as close-knit support groups. Changelings might form them because they all escaped from the same Keeper, because they all returned to Earth around the same time, to pursue a shared goal, because the Wyrd keeps drawing them together, etc. It's nice to have a group of people who've mystically promised not to betray you that you can talk about your problems with.

    The thing with changeling society is that everyone is at least a little traumatized, exposed to experiences beyond human ken, and so compassion becomes a double-edged sword. A lot of questionable behaviors,...

  • Speaking of crossover, the Dead Dominions aren't the only supernatural realm where following an agreed-upon set of rules grants stability. That's potentially of interest for someone.

    Yes, this is true. And book-Sadako does some even weirder stuff, what with replicating herself as a virus. I think in a CofD scenario, she'd be well on her way to Geisthood, if not something even stranger....

  • Descend is pretty frightening. I notice that it's listed as both a Manifestation and a Numen; is this intentional? The rules for each are just different enough to make me think it's not a typo.

    I guess her Anchor would be the cursed videotape, including any copies of it. She'd have both the Anchor Jump and Hallucinate Numina, and the Fetter and Materialize Manifestations. She'd have a somewhat complicated Ban to the tune of "Can only Materialize to kill someone and can only kill someone seven days after they've watched the cursed tape if they have not made a copy and shown someone else." I guess that once you watch the tape, she starts using Influences to make sure that you're Open to her for when the time comes (also explaining the weird dreams and uncanny phenomena that follow...

  • If I recall correctly, there's also a Hunter book that states that Task Force: Valkyrie at some point was considering either nuking the Shadow or blowing up the moon....

  • That's a fair and also heartbreaking point. I might have to reread Sy Montgomery's The Soul of an Octopus if I ever end up running a game of Geist.

    EDIT: A weird thought that suddenly zoomed into my mind: What if the reason that the Bound don't have a full Integrity-analog is because they don't have an actual soul anymore?...

  • Mon dieu, it seems you are right. That is what I get for reading something while still in the process of waking up....

  • So an animal whose death causes or at least risks Integrity loss in a human has a level of power and awareness as a ghost.

    Which means that there is a greater than zero-percent chance that there is a Sin-Eater in the world bound to the Geist of Harambe.

  • The Tomb looks really cool. I wonder though: If you are creating something that has a size equal to or less than your dots in Tomb, can you activate the Haunt without spending Plasm? My intuition is that you still need to spend at least one goo-point, but who knows?

    Maggot Homunculus is so disgustingly evocative. I love it.

  • The relationship between Burden and Krewe Archetype is interesting, and I think that's supposed to be reflected in the two (or two of the three technically) described endgame scenarios. I do wonder whether a Bound can still have an Archetype without being a member of a Krewe. Perhaps that will be discussed in a later portion of the manuscript.

    (I'm also surprised that, what with the comparison to AA groups, the Heresy section for Necropolitans doesn't include the fact that the first step can be quite the doozy.)

  • I almost had a heart attack when I just saw the title of this thread the other day; for a moment I thought that Onyx Path had given us a little present and started the Kickstarter campaign early. Regardless, I'm very excited.

    On the topic of reminiscing about Geist's past, I vaguely recall a post (by I want to say Dave Brookshaw) claiming that the game's original pitch looked quite different from the end result. Something about playing as angels maybe? Does anyone remember this?
