  • 5 – Shadow Realm

    ‘Appollon’ and Hellions

    Because of previous open worship of Helios Spirit God as Appollon in this parts, his messengers and servants are in high and active esteem of local Hisil. As god himself is making almost unbearable hotness in the day in Shadow Realm in this area – leading to almost stop of other spirits activity - Helions are watching over if anyone is not breaking his rules then. And for Uratha. Sun god is very displeased with werewolves, especially of Forsaken kind. Pure ‘Bear Growl’ pack is only operating on ancient compact with Helions...

  • 3 – Greek ruins & Necropolis

    Sun Temple

    In the ruins is temple to Appollon, ‘Great God’, The Sun - now defunct and long not used. It is guarded by Helions spirits on the other side that use unfortunates humans who will go there to their own doom. ( See Helions section in Shadow Realm chapter. )

    Necropolis

    Odessos has one of longest necropolis – tunnels of the dead, were corpses were buried – in Black Sea area under its streets. Place shrouded by death and darkness, was popular mark for worship gods like Erebos – Lord of Darkness –...

  • Only I finish starting write-up for local Cimmerians population, and will share a lot of stuff I have ready already. And here we are...

    2 – Odessos and natives – Cimmerians

    Cimmerians – ancient people from Great Steppe that conquered Steppe, Caucasus and Black Sea from circa 1000 till 600 BCE. Also known as Kimmérioi by Greeks. They are forefathers of present citizens of Odessos. They intermixed with Greek colonist from times of circa 550 BCE – and later under occupation by Rome. Still, Cimmerians ethnicity survived in local people, even when they very stron...

  • And here is first faction described for this mini-setting...

    1 – 800s – Khazars garrison

    Khazar Khanagate stretch on whole area of Great Steppe, up to it’s boarders on the Black and Mediterranean Seas. Odessos is boarder outpost of this proto-empire, located near estuary of (later known as) Dniepr river. As it’s beach area, garrison is limited only to local Khagan and 30 of his most trusted man, their horses and their families – in this order. Khazars, following their general liberal approach to ruling, let inhabitants to follow their own gods. Some of the Khagan...

  • 2.5: New werewolves just don't jive with established pack. Pack is primary Totem cult and, sometimes, you just find people that not work with your own cult. If pack is 'motorcycle club after Fenrir' then literature academic Nuzusul will not work in this religious family. Better is to, after few days of revision, to 'send' new wolf to friendly pack of newcomers literature, occult and religious learners - than to rise tensions in your own pack that can lead to split. Newcomer will be glad and will thank you later on - and you got ally in another pack in region. Win-win....

  • Predator Kings bear whorshiping pack in format from WtF 2E The Pack book.

    4 - ‘Bear Growl’ Pack

    This is cave bear primitives cult run by Predator Kings under patronage of cave bear Totem. Think of them as Wendols from 13th Warrior movie or Eaters of Dead book. Pack is stealing human children and raise them ‘as bears’ in the caves that are heart of it’s territory.

    Pack Aspirations:

    Short-Term – Raid human settlements
    Medium-Term – Clean area of Forsaken werewolves
    Long-Term – Restore the cave bears to being - May try breeding...

  • Thinking on the story I have in mind in this area, I think we need to prepare those groups/locations:
    1. Local Khazars garnizon and Khagan - something like 50 people.
    2. Native settlement, that is rest of Crimena mixed with Greek colony - probably 200-250 people.
    3. Greek ruins & necropolis.
    4. Bear cults pack ( mostly ready, will share it later ).
    5. Local Shadow Realm main players.

  • You are not the first one to think about using Kaiju as BtP historic era. For the clarity, on the dinosaurs you also come second. Good could be to ask original pitchers what they have in mind, maybe they help you also. So let's address to tasti man LH and Second Chances, shall we?...

  • And if you are really into extinction-extinction scenario - That are represented by the Insatiables. Basically, they are the same to Begotten, like serial killer is to the normal human. Insatiables, instead of monstrous Horrors, have in their souls centers Moments - Astral realms of great elements crushing whole humanity and monsters. Deep of the Ocean would be one of it. Another would be Cosmic Void. And, probably, Great Impact that killed dinosaurs would be another. More on Insatiables you can read in Beast's antagonists book - Night Horrors: Conquering Heroes....

  • It would still be Anakim Family. They are called Giants not only because most of 'titanic races' of mythologies were part of them - but barbecue Family, as large, represents monsters that makes human afraid of their general capabilities and... well, extinction of humanity, exactly. Anakim are, by definition, representing beings you can summaries as 'force of (super)nature, not an mere monster'.

    Gigantic size is obvious here, but Anakim Beast would also be unstoppable demon, immortal undead, etc. Everything you think about as 'we cannot kill it with our normal weapons' can be...

  • BtP is all about you connection to your Horror, Astral image of the Fears that you are now embodied as Begotten. Easiest would be simply archeologists to have been Devoured by the Horror representing different bone structures - i.e. different dinosaur species. Interesting would be what Family and Hunger would they have then?

    Dinosaur are 'ancient reptilian giants that ruled the Earth from dawn of time', so Anakim, Family of Fear of Hopelessnes come to mind. Uncovering SECRETS of lost world is clearly Hunger for Secrets ( see Beast Player Guide ) and collecting bones for the collection...

    Idea is great! I just have a small problem with one detail - Can't live or can't be in man-made den? Distinction is crucial here - When can you say someone is living in particular site? When it's pack is raiding human settlement - are they living there? If they stay for the night on the streets of the town - are they living there?

    I would probably rephrase Ban to: 'Cannot rest in man-made den' - But are spirits possible to rest in our common sense of humanity? Do spirits 'sleep' in normal day? They clearly can hibernate when lost in Essence. But beside that?...

    started a topic [The Pack] 101 Packs

    [The Pack] 101 Packs

    We have topics about story ideas, spirits and even particular werewolves. But we still do not have topic for collecting ideas for Packs. So here you got one. Only restriction is that we use Pack as Character structure from The Pack sourcebook for WtF 2E. ( Most you need to know is in the template of my own write-up. ) Other forumers can help you hammer needed Pack elements if you ask nicely.

    In next post will be mine Predator Kings pack write-up that follows ancient cave bear Totem. I will edit it when adding next elements to this pack. Comments are welcome.

    Topic necromancy, as I have perfect fit for Fossile Spirit - I prepare Predator Kings pack that live now in caves that were once inhabited by cave bears. So quick look for the cave bear Totem for them.

    Most fundamental question is how powerful should local Fallen-Lost be? Ensah (Rank 4) as local spirit court ruler? Dihir (Rank 5)? More above? / More I think will be too much – it comes on area of Lunes and Helions there /

    Totem: Paw in Darkness

    <Echo of roar of the raged bear in cave>
    Totem Type: Hunting Bear Spirit ( Cave Bear )
    Totem Rank:...
