  • For Honor wanting Uratha I think it does matter. I wonder if using Gifts against humans in duel would be reason to take out dot of Honor from werewolf character?



    My nearest instance will be between human and Uratha. But I putted topic in generał CoD forum as this question is for anyone running Viking Era games....

  • Wolf Lake - What did Sherman Blackstone?

    It's more TV related question, but as Wolf Lake series is official inspiration from The Pack book, I ask here, maybe fans will help me understand. Also, series being so insightful into WtF Uratha condition may help understand Forsaken setting better. Of course, it's large spoiler thread, so not read it if you did not watched series. Okay, let's go in to proper topic...



    Sherman Blackstone is Native American official science teacher in titular Wolf Lake's High. In secret, he is towns Pack Leaders adviser, said to be centuries old now. But here goes puzzling thing - in...

  • So my enemy Norse warrior have Defense 5 and using our Reinforced Small Wooden Shield. To attack his Shield I need to attack with penalty 5 ( as only base Defense ) or 7 ( as Defense + Shield Size )?...

  • I think that using simple +2 from reinforcement ( to Durability 3 ) will be enough - it will be -2 Lethal more per hit attack and +2 Structure - longing fight slightly per one shield. On the other hand, we do not want to get bog down on fighting one shield, where you have all three to pass still.



    So that each time player need to target shield per attack, not enemy on general? If yes, what modifier would be for targeting only shield?...

  • Thank you! So looking over stats of Shields in Hurt Locker I see some weird things - first, they are in Malee Weapons section. Second. they add to Defense, instead of Armor?





    So our typical Wooden Small Shield would have Durability 1 and Structure 3, meaning that one attack for 4 Lethals will destroy it in one cut, yes? It seems not very much compared to Small Ax Damage +2 or Swords Damage +3, I must say. It basically mean that 'One Hit = One Shield'... ...

  • Quickly checked CoD Rulebook, Hurt Locker and Dark Eras corebook on weapons tables - non have Durability and Structures for various armors. Are there some guidelines in other books how much should Durability and Structure have each equipment?

    I assume that general Armor rating of particular armor will be Durability of it. Still, need some guidelines on Structure....

    How Methuselahs are defined in Requiem now? In Masquerade they have really low Generation - i.e. coming (almost) straight from Cain - but in Requiem there is no single canonical source of vampirism. So what are Methuselahs here? First members of particular Clan, like Progenitors from Promethean?

  • [2E Dark Eras] Wolf & Raven - Running Hólmganga duels

    I wonder how to run Hólmganga ritual Norse duels by rules of 2E systems. Key point in them is destroying one of three enemy's shields, before final first cut to win duel. This clip from Thirteenth Warrior shows greatly how it should works. 😊



    I assume that each sword on sword attack is actually missing the enemy, as you are not hitting shields you should take out to win.

    How to model in rules breaking of shields?...

  • I like them, may use this write-up for my Civitas of London. I still has one small critique:

    The Seeker's Spirit Mage Armor is augmented so that he gains half his Life dots as general armor, in addition to the damage downgrade.

    Should not this Optional Attainment use Prime dots instead of Life? Seekers are mostly Obrimos, they have small chance having Life in the first place....

  • [Dark Eras] Wolf & Raven - Representative at Hólmganga?

    I prepare scene of Thing for my Viking era chronicle. I want to present two Jarls main NPCs at it - one is accusing another on being Ergi ( in this meaning as passive homosexual ). So defender need to protect his Honor and duel with accusing in Hólmganga. But to not make scene about fight of two NPCs - Can defender choose one of PCs as his representative in duel? I remember being this possibility in tradition in Medieval Europe - not sure if being present in Norse society.

  • It's just this sentance wording. To me it looked like Eras text imply that Uratha made one Blót with humans. They do not, only it's marking they are making their own Blót-Siskur-Dah without humans, after official one.



    I would not? From Changeling perspective you can be rewarded by making rites with humans ( as generating Glamour of particular flavor ). Hell, Summer Court can directly use Blót ceremony to make both Pledges and collect Glamour from humans dedicated to killing enemies ( i.e. with risen Anger ). And some Uratha could still use holidays like those as start...

  • It's adjoining on Herd Must Not Know - social convention or not, I would say that sentence in Era text is misleading - if Uratha do not truly start Siskur-Dah with humans blót, it should not be mentioned in the same sentence. Simple reading points that, indeed, Uratha starts Sacred Hunt with mortals witnessing and doing blót offerings - that is not true, as you pointed out. They are two separate ceremonies/events.

    What is ironic, in my hack on Siskur-Dah for Everyone - where Sacred Hunt is simply Pack Rite - it CAN work as the Wolf & Raven text implying it. In my slight alternative...

  • But... It's still illogical. They do not make Siskur-Dah - so they do not need to state their Prey - because doing this is on brink of Herd Must Not Know and there are no real benefits ( like Siskur-Dah bonuses) to gain from doing this. If proper Siskur-Dah is seperate event, then there is even less incentive to share secrets with humans....

    I was talking about paragraph in the Wolf & Raven Dark Era text ( and viewing of Vikings TV series ) - how accurate they are to the now knowledge of historians and archeologist on subject - I cannot tell, as I do not look over scientinfic journals on this....

    Spancer, thanks for general voice in this sub topic!



    Right - you cannot have enemies that do not know how you are in the first place.



    Pack will be forged at the Thing, as it is event that starts of our chronicle Viking part. Still, can use Jarl as at least common ally for half of future pack members, thanks for this.



    In Norse society, problem was not if you were active partner ( called often 'top' in slang ), or that you made sex with slave ( slaves were really treated by law as living objects, not people ). The...

  • But Archmastery Practices CAN be used on lesser beings as targets. In Imperial Mysteries there is whole story seed ideas that normal mages cabal is contracted by Archmaster for his quests with a promise on Archmage using his one of powers for the wonder normal PCs need for.

    And if cast Arcanum Resistance on those non-Archmasters, Clash of Wills would make this spell nothing different than Wards and Signs ( as you would compare Potency )....
