  • Judges - Are they Great Old Ones or Idigama?

    I did not read MtC 2E preview ( yet ) but I listed a lot of interviews about it in podcast-sphere (?) - Matthew Dawkins mentioned few times how Judges can be Idigama of Werewolf: The Forsaken. In some other discussions, I heard Judges are equated to Great Old Ones of Lovecraft. So to what beings they are closest?

    To me Idigama sounds really weird, as Idigama are spirits that are 'mad' now and change their shapes and - for better words - incarnations now, coming back for werewolves. Does not sound very Judge-ly for me...

    Here is explanations that sounds to me a lot like...

  • NPCs based on PC Callings – Have question – Are NPCs using PC Callings levels Challenge Rating of the same level PC? So NPC with, for example, 9 levels of Callings levels is CR 9 enemy by the rules? Or NPC is there in reality other CR enemy?

    So, let’s look on the Lilith…

    Lilith ( Hebrew / Mesopotamian )

    Demon called Lilitu is found in various Mesopotamian cultures - Sumer, the Akkadian Empire, Assyria, and Babylonia – where it’s ‘demoness of the night and wind’. In Hebrew tradition, Lilith appears as Adam's first wife, who was created at the same time (Rosh Hashanah) and from the same clay as Adam. (This contrasts with Eve, who was created from one of Adam's ribs.) The legend developed extensively during the Middle Ages. For example, in the 13th-century writings of Isaac ben Jacob ha-Cohen, Lilith left Adam...

  • Great video why humans in almost all cultures on Earth have myths about Dragons - where it says about primal fears of snake and reptiles. Fear of Scales as being is based on those theories!

    Great compilation why humans in almost all cultures on Earth have myths about Dragons - could be handy as Beast inspirations, especially as it says about primal fears.

  • Mesopotamia – circa 3100 BC to 539 BC

    In Myths

    Epic of Gilgamesh - Gilgamesh was a historical king who reigned in the Mesopotamian city of Uruk in about 2750 BCE. He is the basis for the hero of the Epic of Gilgamesh, considered the oldest story in the world, a 1,000 years older than Homer’s Iliad or the Bible.

    The Epic tells of an arrogant king (Gilgamesh) whom the gods decide to tame by providing him with an equal, gods created being (Enkidu). Some scholars describe him as his servant and others as his ‘beloved friend’. They have various adventures,...

    started a topic LGBT+ through the Ages – In Myths & History

    LGBT+ through the Ages – In Myths & History

    I want to invite you all to journey across centuries and stories. We will talk about LGBT+ community in historical times. I prepare lecture on this subject for our convention so I thought good would be to share on knowledge – or open them to discussion. Remember the goal of this topic – we talk here about historical information - so even when we talk about myths, we talk about believes of particular cultures that existed some time on Earth. Or about laws and cultural norms of age. Non-fictional, in this approach. I was inspired by Scion 2E research on Pantheons – that points to LGBT+ in gods...

  • Did not run it - but is extensive playing Far Cry: Primal, lately, so have some ideas or advice, if anyone want's it. It's in Mesolithic era, 10000 BCE, so it can have some difference than Sundered World Dark Era, that is 5500 BCE - but I could hash differences.

    So this weekend we had our local, big convention - on circa 5000 participants - and I was suddenly asked to be panelist on topic of 'Representation of minorities in fantasy and science-fiction'. So here is my picture from the event. 🌈😎🌈

    ajf115 - Good call, I probably will go with Lilith. And I can use her Diablo 4 picture as great Horror image. 😈

    Tessie - To not offend Christians. It's much easier to assume 'this Beast thinks Holy Mary is monster' than 'in our game, we have Holy Mary AS monster'.

    replied to Theories on Dark Mother
    I need help in unsual Begotten - I prepare NPC from Byzantine Empire that belives it's Horror is reincarnation of Abrahamic Mother Mary. Best would be from Greek or Minor Asia cultures. Anyone have idea on mother mythological that would be appropiate? I'm not sure Echidna is good, as she clearly is pointed as only negative mother in Greek myths, so not working for this idea.

    I have re-written Storytelling Hints by Charlequin points - it look right now this:

    Storytelling Hints: Asklepios have secret. As a snake, he likes to shed his skin – and break taboo of Byzantium. Death of wife open him to false duality of humanity. In his free time, Asklepios roams the streets of Constantinople as a woman, using Life magic to change her body to more closely reflect her self-image. Asklepios’ identity is fluid, and the Church would burn them if they found out....

  • Topic revive, as I prepare some NPCs. I will give you REAL problem - What Sworn should be Promethean Refinements? Because beside simple 'Centimani = Naglafar's Army' - I'm blank here. Created fixating on becoming human makes it difficult to judge Sworn faction, as they are all focused on beating the Contagion.

    I suppose Ferrum would be Zero Hour, but even here I have some problems with that idea - Ferrum is about perfecting physical theyself, Zero Hour are just about military fight with Contagion...

    I made first transgener (?) or non-binary(?) NPC for my games that I think will stick more in play. He ( They? ) are mage from 800 AD Constantinople for Mage: The Awakening 2E, from Thyrsus Path that are shamans and shapechangers. I hope it's good representation of genderfluid identity? More to read and full stats are on original post of NPC. ...

  • And here is my NPC mage for Constantinopole, with strong Contagion storyline in it.

    Mage – Asklepios – Omphalos Sworn

    Quote: ‘Snakes are healers – I will heal you and your soul.’

    Background: Awakened known as Asklepios was second ( or even fifth )-tier physician of the Imperial Court in Constantinople. He got there after years of his driver to be ‘best doctore’ in his small community. He was broken – and then Awakened – when next wave of Justinian Plague took his young wife. Asklepios then command the snakes that attacked him in Primal Wild....
