  • 'City' by Clifford D. Simak as Realms of Pugmire universe inspiration

    I was pointed by fellow fans for this as possible Realms of Pugmire creations stories. Now it's on my must read/listen list! Some sum up of book:

    'Simak's "City" is a series of connected stories, a series of legends, myths, and campfire stories told by Dogs about the end of human civilization, centering on the Webster family, who, among their other accomplishments, designed the ships that took Men to the stars and gave Dogs the gift of speech and robots to be their hands.'

  • Virulence and mortality rate of Justinian Plague

    'The number of deaths is uncertain. Modern scholars believe that the plague killed up to 5,000 people per day in Constantinople at the peak of the pandemic. The initial plague ultimately killed perhaps 40% of the city's inhabitants and caused the deaths of up to a quarter of the human population of the Eastern Mediterranean. Frequent subsequent waves of the plague continued to strike throughout the 6th, 7th and 8th centuries, with the disease becoming more localized and less virulent.


    After the last recurrence in 750, pandemics...

  • With the Justinian Plague, we can easily see connection of werewolves, joining with vampire and mages fights against epidemic – especially from Hunters in Darkness.

    ‘According to contemporary sources, the outbreak in Constantinople was thought to have been carried to the city by infected rats on grain ships arriving from Egypt. To feed its citizens, the city and outlying communities imported large amounts of grain, mostly from Egypt. Grain ships may have been the original source of contagion, as the rat (and flea) population in Egypt thrived on feeding from the large granaries...

  • Returning after long time no writing - but probably with new cool ideas. As Plague of Justinian (541–542 AD) is now canonically in CoD one of historical instances of Contagion ( from Contagion Chronicles ) that also cemented Jeremiad Sworn faction - and with previous Requiem for Rome pointing that it's time Lancea Sanctum took power in Constantinople - I think I would base setting on Sworn groups alliances from CC, rather than classical each races splats only split.

    Then we have historic Sworn split over monster races respond to Contagion in Justinian times, that became de...

  • I look over to add Sworn to my games setting in Byzantium. As I run Werewolf part, I wonder what Uratha can join Jeremiads group. Leliel's idea for Iron Master wanting more moral understanding of humanity sounds good. I think that Storm Lords idea of 'not showing our weakness' and 'we must fix whole mess after killing Father/Mother Wolf' sounds as possible Penitents. Something more werewolf archetypes for this group you have?...

  • Rest of two Thundercats that join later team:
    • Panthro - (almost) general of Thundera, so Champion is logical.
    • Pumyra - ex-gladiator so Champion is in order here.

  • As I was asked by my player on related to topic question - How Secrets work when you were raised in House A, but later change loyalty to House B?

    Answer in on page 86 of Mau corebook:

    'In general, cats keep house affiliation all their lives, but some choose to join a different house once they become adults. For the purposes of creating your cat, choose which house your character grew up in, and decide whether your character’s loyalty to her current house, or rebellion against her previous one, defines her more. Characters loyal to their original house can take House...

  • Returning to idea of Reincarnation for Cats mid-play - I still think it's doable, only with slight twist on the Reincarnation. All the time we assume that Cat B must be born when Cat A is dead - but what if it does not? What if old soul need to find body that is suitable and is just becoming adult to 'awaken' inside it?

    By Mau corebook, cat's end being kittens and start being young adult at age 10 - Maybe the next reincarnation then enters suitable body, on cats 10th birthday, when they start to be adult? It's much more plausible chronicle scenario that older Cats A is switched for...

  • After reading my Mau corebook on the matter - Main games line is that Cats belief in Nine Lives is only society construct. BUT corebook points in 'official' hacks section that Cats having real reincarnation is totally doable - simply next character get's at least one Secret ( with all refinements ) from previous life, for free. In my games, Cats Nine Lives are game fact.

    Which rises question what happened to the soul of Trilliani Persian Von Mau, First Monarch of Unified Mau that died in last year... ...

  • Reading how cats are curious, driven to understand and disassembling Masterworks of Men - I can totally see that cats uncovered our modern calendar. Corebooks of Pugmire and Mau point that tablets are day to day in usage by researchers in Arcana in both dogs and cats societies. Our tablets shows calendars, so usage of idea is more than plausible. Cats maybe only started to build clock towers in cities, but calendars could be used around whole Monarchies of Mau, simply because tablets and mobile phones are uncovered from decades now.

    Question then is from WHAT date cats could...

  • The cats in Mau section is similar to dog one in Pugmire, but pointing that cats may have slightly better understanding of time ( MoM, page 155 ):

    'Time is also not measured in precise intervals, though cats are slightly more accurate than dogs at measuring it. A day lasts from one sunrise to the next. Morning is when the sun rises in the sky, and evening is when it lowers. Night is when the sun is gone. During the day, cats measure hours about the same way dogs do: when the sun has moved noticeably in the sky, but less than a full change from morning to evening, or evening to night....

  • [Mau] Is cats relation to Great House more cultural or more loyalty?

    Finally got my Mau corebook! Yupi! And when starting to prepare introductory scenario, I uncovered that I may not understand idea of Houses in this game. ( The 'von' part of cats names. ) Minor spoilers for All Hail Rat King! adventure to follow...

    Scenario takes place on in town on lands of House Cymric, near border with House Korat. One of major NPCs is mayor of the town that is Misty von Mau! What's more, quest is given to PCs by local Castellan - Mischa von Angora!
