  • Monotheism and Multipersonas One God in Scion

    Disclaimer: This topic is about sensitive matter that can clash with some of readers beliefs. With everything about Scion, take it as mainly game material, not aiming to offend anyone. And it’s idea comes from book and TV series, so come to them in the first place.

    This topic is about my thoughts on Monotheism in Scion – and how to make it work inside the setting of the World. It’s probably can be going in areas of game hack, but should work in canon setting – or at least I think it should work. And it’s all base on the idea from Neil’s Gaiman ‘American Gods’ book and TV series....

    Forum Ranks?

    So just now I hit my 9000th post on OPP forum. With that level of dedication to the games, one would hope if there would be some mark of veteran forum users...

    Even if not consider by the Onyx Path, I mark this topic for users with over 8000 posts on their accounts, just to show veterans club.

  • It's also Eye of the Beholder - population densities in urban fantasy / horror setting are in the end made up and should serve story in the first place. However, for giving you some advice or hint - four years back adventure for Beast the Primordial made very general monster population assumptions for New Orleans - and from those, we ended with this numbers:



    In the long discussion, we 'fixed' the algorithm for making the 1:10 Major Template to "touched by supernatural" ratio. The starting 0.5% for 'touched' is 1:200 and the 1/100 for Majors is 1:20 000....

  • Geist 2E corebook points that there are low and hights of Bound population, related to events of mass death in human population. So if there are mass deaths, then you will large rise of Sin-Eaters in area.

  • Okay, assuming that battles and large conflicts were sparse - but they did happen.

    How Harmony should relate to mass killings? Larger penalty to roll, giving -2 or -3 maybe?

    If Uratha also broke Oaths tenet 'Herd Must Not Know' with shapeshifing before their enemies, it's also worsening Harmony roll ( or is it negligible )? Question is if characters broke 'Herd Must Not Know' if they killed anyone seeing their inhuman forms?

    [2E] Problematic Gift's Facets

    Topic for finding problems with usage of Facets - or problematic Facets to use. Here is one example my players stumble upon...

    Skin Thief (Cunning) from Gift of Change says:

    'Although grisly, an Uratha with this Facet can don the skin of a kill as if it were his own natural hide.
    (...)
    The Uratha can only use this Facet while in Hishu form. He must skin a human or predatory animal of roughly the same size as a wolf, enough to wear across his shoulders at least, and then don the skin.'

    So, character need the skin of person, not to kill the person...

  • [Dark Eras] Harmony in historical times

    So I want to discuss the elephant in the room for the historical games - much more violent world.

    In my Viking game, our Uratha pack imprisoned local Khazar warlord, just killed circa 12 his warriors, bodyguard and priest, and burn his Great Hall, all in one scene. By the Vikings sagas canon, it's standard in those tales. Stories from that times are full of the actions like this.

    In Antiquity and Early Middle Ages times ( and earlier ), mass killings and battles are on the day to day basis.

    And then we have 2E Harmony rules where 'Killing a human or wolf'...

    replied to Contagion in WtF
    'Contagion' is broad term over vastly different regional events that break base reality in area, in some way. They are only put together as it's seem all those different effects are 'spreading' like a disease in various ecologies they start in - going even to mortals and other supernatural beings.

    For now we have those shown as example Contagions:
    • Parallel universe bleeds of beings and places ( Edinburgh, New Zealand )
    • Vampires rising blood addiction and light sensitivity in all around them ( Edinburgh )
    • Suicidal depression sticking to every self-conscious being ( Odense )
    • Ghosts

  • I will counter that - looking like that, both Beast and Promethean 2E are also, more or less, complete gamelines.

    Beast has now: 2E core, Night Horrors book & Player's Guide - only one maybe needed would be BtP Storytellers Guide. And even then I'm really not sure what would be needed to be explored there that was not in Player's Guide.

    Promethean has now: 2E core, 2E Night Horrors book & whole 1E gameline run (! i.e. 4 books ) - I do not see even reason for PtC Storytellers Guide now, really. It has all that you need for it to run.

    Well, maybe a...

    Contagion in WtF

    As I prepare to run Contagion Chronicle storyline in my Werewolf chronicles, I made analysis of how gameline setting ideas can relate to Plagues elements, for anchoring it in game. As I already done that, I thought I will share with fan community here and start broader discussion. Enjoy!

    1. Fire-Touched – Uratha Tribe under patronage of Wolf God of Truth and Sickness sounds already as interested in Contagion. When you add that Izidakh are obsessed with Spirit World and it’s ecology, clearly any Plague that is affecting spirits is their first concern. Concerning Sworn/False

    [Contagion] Sworn/False Sheet

    So we have new ‘gameline’ with Contagion Chronicle, so there is need for new char sheets to make it more playable. As Contagion is more add-on over normal games of Chronicles of Darkness, we do not need to hack normal sheets for 11+ gamelines – only make one sheet for groups statistics where other players will mark in how is what in the gang. Here is project, if it’s okay by you all – will go into production of it.

    Notice: Marked as ‘*’ is combo list, that will let choose one of options final version of sheet.
