  • In Onyx Pathcast 15 ( around time 14:00 of audition ), Eddy Fate mentioned that there is problem with imaging how should Uplifted Birds physiology looks like – especially hands and feet. If I may advise something as a fan, I would point not to evolution, but to devolution of the species in question. Particularly, that all Birds comes from common ancestor Archaeopteryx that had gripping hands and feet. I think most of Uplifted Birds can easily take inspirations from this species anatomy.

  • If you want to remake thread main topic - best is edit Opening Post and call moderator to change topics name. Other way they will spring up the same inspirational topic in coming weeks... Charlaquin, can you rename topic?

    Thinking in on the Vitea-like-Satiety idea, and I thin you could mirror Beasts Atavisms and Nightmares mechanics. You could simply take the route of making Disciplines working like Atavisms ( i.e. 'instinct powers' ) and special Covenants powers / like Oaths, Theban Sorcery, Cruac, Coils, etc. / to work like Nightmares ( i.e. 'rational powers' ). More you are Sated, more easily is to use 'rational powers' and difficult to use 'instinct' ones.

  • Lore on the Begotten beasts of your nightmares…
    Successes Information
    5 There are creatures literally born of nightmares – and they feed on humans fears.
    10 They call themselves Beasts. Those monsters are covering in human bodies, sating their alien desires. They reflect human stories and as they are monsters – they call the Heroes in general population.

  • After some criticism in Kindred fighting Uratha topic, I revisioned werewolves table, to better reflect rules and lore as it is...

    Special Rule: Uratha strict lore is for the character with Specialty in them or characters that have 1 Occult dot higher - so character with Occult ( Uratha ) 2 or Occult 3 get information that Uratha have five forms. Werewolf phenomena is very diverse, especially because of Wolf-Blooded and related beings.
    Successes Information

    I would simply do Beasts Satiety matter, with tied Conditions, only leaving Humanity as other trait in place.

  • Tables were done 2 years ago, based on the similar tables in Silver Ladder 1E book and mechanics - which generally states what I putted in them. If you question this content - move this off-topic to the main topic of [2E] Researching supernaturals in game, where all the idea was presented in the first place. Moderators can move few posts on this to it, if they feel went a large off-topic from vampires fighting Uratha.

  • How I solve 'what characters knows with each Occult dot' is described in this topic. Simply exchange each 5 Successes to roll on Reaserch for 1 dot of Occult. Here is Uratha sum up....

  • In Requiem For Rome they also do not have printing press ( as in Ancient Rome ) and there are still characters with Occult 4-5 even. Skills in CoD games represents what character knows or is able to do, not how she learn it. For the game systems how character got the knowledge is irrelevant - important is that she has it.

    Also, we talk here about groups of vampires hunting by decades now on other monsters - they just easily can know it by (un)life experience....

  • Added Researching supernaturals topic - How to known what on Occult Skill dots known each character - Not strictly Dark Eras topic, but clearly useful in all CoD games.

  • Isn't really? Bane of Silver is literally the first thing that show up in werewolf fictions and legends. Adding to the fact that Uratha ability to assume 'wolf-man monster form' ( i.e. Gauru ) is so central to their portray in universe of Chronicles of Darkness as that Kindred vampires are undead and drink blood - I would say that even Occult 1 characters understand that some werewolves can assume Gauru in rage ( even not knowing proper name ). Logically then Occult 2 characters can assume that Gauru is for limited time only ( not knowing proper times ) - and probably known about Bane of Silver...

  • They have Occult Skill at 2+ dots each - they are proto Ordo Dracul group that studies Blood and inner magics of monsters. They also hunt for Uratha Blood for few decades now, even if that means 3 fights for all those years.

    Citing CoD Rulebook, page34 on Occult Skill:
    'The Occult Skill is a character’s knowledge of myth, folktales, and urban legends about the strange things that exist in the dark corners of the world. Occult can help a character separate fiction and myth from fact and determine which stories are likely to be actual supernatural events and which are just rumors....

  • Warning: On our last night game our Blood Talons Rahu player get attack dicepool in Guaru form of 25 dices. He is most combat heavy character, rest have dicepools like 8-15, when they best try.

    Marcus, great powers and scenarios write-ups - however...



    Is simply not true. In Werewolf 2E rules on Gauru Form ( page 97 ) states:
    'She can take Gauru once per scene, and then only for a number of turns equal to her (Hishu / human form/) Stamina + Primal Urge. After that point, she must choose: Shift down into Dalu or Urshul, or fall into Kuruth. If she does...

  • Notice: I will use WB as shorting for Wolf-Blooded.

    Some info about Uratha packs forces: There are circa 18 normal Vikings humans in camp ( they lost some people on previous session, with small battle with nearby tribes of Chazars ). They are also two small Uratha packs inside this group ( one PCs, one NPCs ) - with 7 Uratha and 2 Wolf-Blooded. So, all of Vikings are circa 27 people, with 9 werewolves in this group ( Uratha and Wolf-Blooded combined ).



    Vamps wants WB's Blood for themselves ( to develop what's in Ordo Dracul will be Coils ). Best would be...

  • Venom ( and other Marvel Symbiotes ) as Geist inspiration?

    So when thinking about Geist 2E I watched latest Venom trailer - and it hit me. Is not Marvel Symbiotes - Venom, Carnage and rest - known widely as Klyntar race - relations with their hosts works as great parallel to Geist-Bound dynamic? Geists are, in the end, alien forces of Death that are only passingly with human traits. Most of the time they are alien beings, having great power, that host need to Synergy to success, yes?

    See the trailer for more Symbiote-Host dynamics that could be Giest-Bound one, with Eddie being Bound and Venom being Geist.

  • From what i remember Thousands Years of Night, Pijavica works more or less as Gangrels - with the same Discpilines spread.

    EDIT: Checked TYoN - Pijavica trait are those:
    • Favored Attributes: Stamina or Wits
    • Disciplines: Animalism, Protean, Resilience
    Clan Bane is negligible as it's 'momentary' Attributes change that can change with life of vamps. I personaly use my own version of Pijavica Clan Bane.
