  • I feel some ST hacking for chronicle coming to the Underworld if I cannot remake something akin to pagan afterlives...

  • So 'resembling real world afterlives' is still a thing - just it's unknown why those realms spring up in Dominions, contrary to Shadow or Astral realms?

  • I was advised to look for some supernatural Kin tension in the area - and looking over Edinburgh feel and myths, clearly is that those things should resonate with ghosts. So the Sin-Eaters would be one half of conflict equation. Question is what would be second? Reapers from Underworld, wanting to 'steal the dead' below? Or other supernatural major race - like maybe werewolves? However focusing on the ghosts means rather limited interest from wolves in it - well, maybe Bone Shadows picking their heads in it. And in Edinburgh, Bone Shadows will surely be the most numerous Tribe...

  • Oh, the thing is - I WOULD want to have stable Table. I really despise, as ST, FATE-like one shot games. If that would be case, I would simply run Indie RPGs, I know few. I may run Beast one-shot scenario only becuase we have Ready Made Characters, so I can plan plot accodingly to them.

    I'm the one ST that prepear center plot of chronicle. I run games to tell the story with my players, not episodic sitcom. ( Games move naturaly from time to time to those area, but it's not my main drive as ST to run games. )

    Problem is simple - there are no stable Tables in Lublin, for...

  • I would point Strange as more 'healer camp' Adamantine Arrow. He want to excel in what he do, he want's to literally heal the world - and in the end, he does gladly fight the Darkness - only in smart, not brutish way....

  • I can just give players Obcasus Initiate on first Communion - as in XP debt - and let them pay it with the Communion Beats. But it still will work almost as giving it for free, they only be 10 Beats behind.

  • We talk about time where Modern Humans are already in? So we can go 13th Warrior style and adds contacts with Neanderthals.

    I'm interested in one idea - What about Beasts Horrors? They represent the Fears of humanity. WHAT would be those Fears in those times? Did not Dark Mother be still around and seeding those Fears in first humans?...

  • Dice pools where in previous write-ups, done long before my any edit, from BtP stuff for example. If I get in to too much detail - point me where description should be more general and I re-write it.

    Baba Yaga ( Russian )
    In Russian folklore there are many stories of Baba Yaga, the fearsome witch with iron teeth. She is also known as Baba Yaga Boney Legs, because, in spite of a ferocious appetite, she is as thin as a skeleton. In Russian that's: 'Baba Yaga Kostianaya Noga'. She lives in the hut on the chicken legs. When a visitor enters her hut, (not too often) Baba Yaga asks them whether they came of their own free will, or whether they were sent. (One answer is the right one!)

    Thankfully, she appears to have no power over the pure of heart, such as Vasilisa and those of...

  • Okay, so for sleep after Communion character get's both new Rite and 1 Beat for resolution. Very positive stuff here. And yes, now I see it's a bit perpetum mobile with ST involved in granting Communion.



    I missed Epic Potential as not every one of players can take it. But thanks for pointing it out - in Beast Epic Potential can be taken often for players, so I will have this in my mind.



    Okay, so the number of Rites limit is not a problem, really. Thanks for pointing out.



    Will see on the matter - Communion may...

  • I added link removed by moderator for BtP from Beast Player's Guide. As my first ever edition in Codex - they probably will need some style edition.

    Added Hoard and Hunting Ground Traits to the Dragon ( Western ) and Wendigo write-ups. Looks in to Slavic Horrors, probably star from Baba Yaga, as I know her best.

  • Okay, so page 97 and 98 of BtP corebook solves most of my questions. We will see if something more comes to my mind on subject, later on.

  • I do not see this from Communion - as Condition do not have Beats section to generate more XP for character to rise traits. Condition states only that character can learn next Rite - from my reading of BPG, hard limit of Int+Lair is still in place. That you need to rise from XP generated in other areas. It's only investment on shoulders of particular character.




    You say 'role of high priest in the cult of Dark Mother', to me it's more 'inner magic of all Begotten'. Even by RAW every PC Beast can learn to use Obcasus Rite - it just needs story reasons ( connected...

  • Okay, number of turns overlapping between material and Dream is in the Beast Players Guide? Those Dreamquake effects? Cause on reading them I understood it's more number of turns that particular Chamber is able to crash those inside it, not that this effect of Chamber could kill people in physical location....

  • And so you understand why I spring topic about series of related questions. I found Beast 'corebook language' to be very flowery and some nuances of it are missing my understanding of English. You do not want to here answer - fine. But I find 40 pages long topic not any helpful in finding those nuances related to the corebooks general concept....

    Initiate have only limited number of Rites to learn - Intelligence + Lair, to be precise. And if I need more Rites in game - I think about incorporating more than half of them, on possible chronicle plots idea.

    Thinking about it, maybe Obcasus Initiate could stay as Merit - only being someone special, as not 'that guy that knows Rites', only more 'that guy that is really super good with Rites'. I could see this easily. Probably not called Initiate then,...
