  • You should always assume the Wyrd takes its payment upfront. Anything that would cheat it gets defenestrated. This is axiomatic....

    Gift of Sky

    It can be dangerous to go chasing after the dwellers of the firmament between Earth and the void, as confined to the land as the Uratha normally are. Helios especially frowns at even this slight presumption on the part of Luna’s wayward children, but when spirits of feather and mist are brought down or persuaded to bargain with breezy and twinkling gathra, the rewards are all the more delicious for it.

  • I think that'd work fine for a Deviant game, though ultimately within the framework of the rules such a group would act as a Conspiracy. Rappelle-toi that a Conspiracy is simply a group of individuals working together toward a common cause; all that stuff about barbarism is simply Renegade delusion.

    New Frailties: Tells & Triggers

    The myriad mythic weaknesses, banes, quirks, and idiosyncrasies of the fae could fill tome after tome. Folklore paints their habits and taboos with a palette of a thousand-and-one shades, and what's good for the goose may not in fact be good for the gander by any stretch of the imagination. Faerie is a place of one-offs, unique phenomena, maybes, and exceptions to every rule; changelings often bring that with them back to the waking world, whether they want to or not.

    Although Taboos and Banes are the most common frailties the Lost develop as they attune themselves further and further...

  • 239) It's been five consecutive nights now that the crescent moon has hung in the sky. The luminescent sickle imposes its form upon the black firmament with no sign of change on the horizon. Humans notice in the way humans only ever half-notice anything that isn't grabbing them by the labels and screaming, of course. Maybe the astronomers and meteorologists and Wiccans realize something's up, but they're not exactly rushing to the bullhorns about it for whatever reason. Meanwhile the Ithaeur languish in the spiritual bounty flowing into their werewolf-souls, exploiting the windfall of Essence...

  • Changelings revert to a humanoid body-shape when they escape from Arcadia, so a pure centaur is a little outside the scope of possibility. They'd probably be best represented with the 1e Broadback Kith, in my opinion, and you could choose a centaur shape for Chrysalis as well....

    Voting A on this one. I've got a soft spot for people who do bad things for good reasons.

  • This is pretty nifty stuff (and homebrew Promethean content is thin on the ground so more is always welcome). I dig their potential uses as a story hook for various ends (Refinement tutor being the most obvious, but other potentialities dangle and glitter so tantalizingly). It's also a great option I think for players who want to continue playing their character after attaining the New Dawn while still being able to hold their own against Created-level threats (or helping to bridge the gap between their former throngmates and the limpid-yet-hazy human world).

    Although you mention...

  • Hey, sounds like a nifty experiment. Good for getting the brain-juices flowing.

    Since your first character is a Beast, for Family, disons, Makara.

    Sheut's an interesting one, to be sure. Might as well get as spooky as we can.

  • Oh geez, that's pretty grim. I hadn't considered using them to model bigots, but I can see how that slots in to the Archetype pretty neatly. On a more abstracted level, I guess you could say that they see something they want and just take it, damn everyone else.

    (Also note to self: Homebrew Elysian Ceremony that gives the Bound limited control over who their death gets shunted onto.)...

    Story-Uses for the Elysians

    They're haughty. They're entitled. They think they're better than you and, you know what?, they might be right. Look at the way they compose themselves, the way they command all attention whenever they walk into a room. Look at how they've mastered death and the small god incubating inside them. Look at how the Mandate of Heaven flows effortlessly into their perfectly manicured fingers, so smooth, so tapered, so en vogue it makes you want to crash a semi truck into the Louvre. They may as well be the Dallas of the dearly undeparted the way they flaunt and preen and coif with the best ghost-goo...

  • Gotta go with the Yeerks. Like Wyrd, Animorphs was a big part of my kidtimes, and I'd be hard-pressed to deny that it ended up influencing a lot of my tastes in ways both subtle and overt.
