    replied to The LGBT Thread II
    As for our Facebook 'Rainbow RPGs' group - and from Pathcast last months - I dwelt more into setting of Blue Rose RPG and it's very LGBT+ inclusive themes. I think even about running it in future - or at least buying it. However, 2E is run on AGE mechanics engine - and I remember I disliked it when seeing stream of Dragon Age campaign on the same rules on Geek & Sundry, few years past. Anyone of you have source on AGE rules, showing rules in a nutshell?

    replied to First Vampires
    Char, it's still my favorite 'scientific' explanation of vampirism. To my Ordo Dracul NPCs, Neglatu story about Revenants rising to self-consciousness is the equivalent of humans evolution theory in mortals society - it's still only a theory, as we cannot recreate all the specifics - but it's Ordo's scientific convention that it's true, as all the pieces seems to fit in. If there is some evidence that diverge from it - the researcher is pointed as 'he has some revolutionary/tragic ideas in his papers, we must peer review them'. Basically Neglatu story is dogma for scientific vampires. Whole Night...

  • I plan to introduce some plots from Contagion Chronicle, so some new adventures on the road are looked for - as we wait few (real world ) months for Contagion Kickstarter...



    Does not Khazars have something more in Empire, on it's western sides, between Kuaru and their boarders with Byzantium? Or is it 'steppe, steppe and more steppe'?...

  • Returning to topic one year later - My PCs pack have gone from Uppsala to Kiev ( or, rather, Kuaru ) from 18th February till 19th May of of 800 AD. Two weeks ago in story they lost all non-pack participants in journey in bloody battle with Slavic vampires. Now two packs of werewolves - one PCs of 4 Uratha + 1 Wolf-Blooded slave, second of 3 NPCs Uratha - are deep in future Kievan Rus, aiming for Byzantium ( called 'Greece' by traders ), going to get to Khazars Empire lands in now Kuaru Slavic settlement. Going down and down by - now called - Dnieper river. So PCs are in three months of journey...

  • I renamed Expert’s Expertise Secret/Trick to Talent, cause of the same name in Mau corebook. Experts can also use official Expertise Secret as their Calling one. Now I show you Aristocrats ‘get Masterwork and money’ Secret/Trick.

    Wealth

    By spending 1 Fortune and taking time decided by Guide, character can get one Fix from family or organizations storages. Character can also spend 1 Fortune to make purchase on higher coins level than actually owned. ( See Pugmire page 167 or Mau page 178 ) Aristocrat is bound to return items or coins of similar value, first time it’s...

  • falco1029, how would you dot the Influence Truth? Cause I look for patron spirit of Fire-Touched werewolves. ( Influence Disease not work for me, in this particular context of chronicle ).

  • On this I will think about. It has sense to the Aristocrat character to be able to get to Masterworks - or even giving it to PCs - but I'm not sure on mechanics here. Idea could be that at highest Refainment, character can even get Relic from House stronghold, if needed.




    It's cool, but very similar is official Expertise Secret from Footpad's list. ( Mau corebook, page 80 ) And it looks I need to rename Experts special power, now. ...

  • They are made mainly for NPCs as they are 'boring' - but if your players want to play them - go for it! (And write the comment from their playtests. )



    I would not do this from two reasons:
    1. Honor Challenge is iconic Secret of Champion Calling, defining it the same way as Natural Explorer is defining Trackers or Archery is doing the same for Footpads - not the core ability of Calling, but adding him needed depth and making more than D&D Class sterotype.

    2. Honor Challange assumes that character is tough and can take beaten on herself. Aristocrat...

  • First take on those rules - point me where they are not working.

    Guide’s Fortune

    This are alternative rules for using Fortune by Guide to those found in Pugmire and Mau corebooks. Guide has his own Fortune bowl that is empty on the start of adventure. Whenever players spend their own Fortune, point those spent goes to Guide’s bowl. Guide’s characters can spend Fortune just like player’s character can do it – and Guide cannot have more Fortune in bowl than is number of players characters in game. Guide’s Fortune spent do not return to players and is finally...

  • [Realms] NPCs only Callings

    When thinking about stating Castellan of my PCs party - I got idea that I want him to be some kind of diplomat or spy master. Then I understood that in Pugmire and Mau we do not have heroic Callings like that. And then I recalled there are NPCs Classes in D&D 3.5E SRD - so I thought maybe it's good idea to adapt them to Realms engine. So this topic is for making Realms of Pugmire versions of Aristocrat and Expert Callings, at least. If you got any other ideas for NPCs Callings - write them surely here also. We may later make Canis Minor booklet of that.

  • Perfect! Did not know that Khazars were all into Attila legacy - but is surely have sense.

    Other idea - I think about making circa 800 AD Kuaru of about 200 population ( + 50 men of Khagan army ). I do not want to make it too big in those times - but surely some large border outpost of Khazars Empire.

    Next I will make K’uar being as local Fire Spirit - only not sure it should be 3 or 4 Rank spirit, for now....

  • Fire of Truth

    Priest Bashtu All-Knowing is both Khazar shaman – and Fire-Touched Wolf-Blooded. He is driven to both fire and truth in his life. He found them in belief in K’uar – god of fire in Tengrism – that is also god of revelation. Priest even renamed the settlement to Kuaru, in the name of his diety.

    Bashtu wants to call the great Fire Spirit that he thinks is the K’uar in ephemera. If move to this – he Is ready to burn whole settlement in great sacrifice. But better would be living Essence from few Uratha in enemies settlement…

    Maybe you have...

  • Returning to topic as my players are coming to the Kuara - and maybe entering it in on next session. I look in to some story hooks players can do without killing everyone in settlement. Recalling that Bashtuis Fire-Touched Wolf-Blooded, I may dwell deep in to this Pure Tribe culture or story hooks. Some spirits will be need for them to interact with 'Fire-Touched-ness' of Khagan's priest, yes?
