  • I think I'll make the same ruling regarding your head canon. Although it seems like a rock from the sky that can be fashioned into a sword seems pretty awe inspiring....

  • Odd. Wrought iron isn't considered brittle and it's the iron used in anvils and the Eiffel tower. Charcoal is not commonly used now and the puddling process is used to make wrought iron. There goes my idea of my mages dealing with changelings in pan to pan combat.

  • Setting up webs of NPCs for political intrigue

    The next chapter for my chronicle is likely going to involve a fair bit of political intrigue and I'm looking for suggests on how to set up a web of political relationships, agenda, and rivalries. Any suggestions? The players are new to the area, we are metaplot agnostic, and the players are of moderate but not exceptional power. I'm not entirely sure where to start or if I should just lift something wholesale from a book and rename everyone.

    What advice do people have?

  • What if Mage has as many books as Vampire?

    If Mage had received the book count of Vampire, what additional books would you have want to see written?

    This is partly to ask "what areas does the community wish had more coverage" and also by omission "what areas have enough coverage". Maybe Storyteller's Vault will grant some wishes. :3...

  • Cold iron is a poetic term in the same way cold steel is used in literature so sayeth this Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_in_folklore

    Common objects that are mostly iron:
    Cast iron cooking implements (not the aluminum ones)
    Drain pipes in many areas of the US
    Fireplace tools
    Forging tools
    Metal grill and range tops

    In older houses:
    Lamp frames
    Furniture frames
    Window clasps
    Door handles and hinges
    Most hand tools
    Horseshoes
    Actual iron irons

  • Didn't know there were multiple editions. I'm looking to outline an umbra faction that is waging war against an outlier realm for the crime of trapping quintessence in fixed form. Is Graceful Wicked Masques the V2 version?...

  • I wonder if this changed over time. I don't see mechanically why the Progenitor facility, Research Plantation #4, which has a Life +3 magickal rating would make life _harder_ nor why the Lodge of the Grey Squirrel would be an area where Spirit were +3 harder....

  • Question about the Fair Folk book

    Tried posting this in the Exalted forums but kept getting errors so I figure maybe someone in the CtD forums would be familiar.

    The Fair Folk in Exalted seem conceptually similar to a group I'd like to introduce into my WOD chronicle but I have no familiarity with Exalted. Does anyone have an idea of how much flavor and mechanical guidance one could reasonable get from the Fair Folk book without being familiar with Exalted as a whole? Is it a litany of capital words that mean something special in the Exalted system or is there a fair chance I'd be able to pick up some things and...

    The DTRPG preview wasn't quite long enough for me to figure that out. Thanks!

  • Pardon, but what does the -4 mean? Are difficulties increased by 4 (You're missing a dimension! Shit doesn't make sense!), decreased by 4 (there's only 2 dimensions, correspondence is super easy now!), decreased sphere ranking by 4 (to even get your bearings you need to be a master) or something else?...

    Realm sphere modifications

    I've seen sphere modifications in various supplements with verbiage like "Life +1" and "Correspondence -2" in the book of Chantries but I don't see it defined there. I think I saw somewhere this applied to sphere access (dots in a sphere go up or down) and not difficulty (magic roll modifiers). Is this outlined anywhere?

    Characters are about to spend some quality time in the Deep Umbra! *jazz hands*

    Do you feel you could get to the same place with the Library background as it was previously implemented reducing cost to things and such?

    The idea is neat and provides a mechanic to underlie something that's in the background and also gives like....NPC technocrats kind of something to do. "what's this man in gray do?"
    "he writes Technical Manuals."

    Why not just make a talisman which would lift the arete requirement? Is it just that the spellbook lets you take the rote with you as it were?
    Was this a story drive that led you to this?

    started a topic Nature of the Avatar

    Nature of the Avatar

    There seem to be two interpretation of awakening:
    1) The avatar is born with someone and awakening occurs when the avatar is in some way triggered
    2) Awakening occurs when someone is united with an avatar

    Is there an unambiguous canon answer to which is the case? I had always assumed the former but the advent of the psychopomps causing awakenings when uniting people with an avatar suggests that it's the latter.

  • What's the desire to have minor spheres for? They struck me as either niche, abusable, or redundant. Do you have a faction you're rounding out or something? The template for a sphere of fire kind of applies to all the other elemental spheres.

    Other options:
    -Master of time going for exemplar status who's really trying to show his understanding of the subject. May or may not work out well. Hilarity ensues.
    -A trip to the Shade Realm of Time to do the fixing first hand
    -A trip to the Shard Realm of Time to ask Lu-Bat to do the work. Also provides opportunity to introduce the Garou if you've been jonesin' for time-travel werewolves.
    -Cross work with the Technocrats who'd be very very interested in seeing the timeline repaired.

  • Back Cover to the V20 Core Rule Book

    I do amateur bookbinding and have been making hand-made editions of the 20th anniversary core rule books for home use. The DTRPG PDF copy doesn't seem to have a back back cover. It seems to go front cover, "A Beast I Am Lest a Beast I Become", then the Helena (?) image. The last page is list of upcoming publications from The Onyx Path. There doesn't seem to be a proper back cover like most of the other books.

    If you have a POD copy, what's the back cover? Does anyone have a PDF that somehow has a different back cover than the DTRPG page? Curious if I'm missing som...
