    replied to It's coming!
    Actually I am much more familiar with 2nd edition systems/material than 1st edition which I didn’t particularly care for, except CtL and MtC both of which I used in OWoD instead of in nWoD. I much prefer Chronicles of Darkness, that is 2nd edition, material which I actually like quite a bit.

    The thing with Mummy and Memory/Morality is that if my memory serves me correctly it’s original developer did defend the connection between Memory and Morality in the discussions about it on these forums, hence my worry. Of course I have no idea how much or little he has a hand in 2nd edition...

    If shaping combat is going to be entirely left out then we truly need Fair Folk Charms that allow them to loose a combat and ”die” so elegantly and beatufully as for you to weep for them and in so doing create a tie of love or respect to them that stays in place even after they re-create themselves from their death and other such cool things originally left to shaping combat.

    Shaping combat was perhaps a bit complicated but still quite awesome in the freedom it gave and the epic combats it allowed for which were often on scale unprecedented even in Exalted. I think it serves...

    @FallenEco

    I know that is not the intention but it is what it effectively becomes if Memory and Morality traits are tied together as they were in 1st edition. If you act immorally, even if that were true to your nature and would be an assertion of self over the judges will and mission, you will loose, or just not gain, any memory. Ergo it becomes that bad people have harder time to remember because acting true to themselves actually weakens memory stat as that is tied to morality instead of strenghthening it.

    Remember that in 1st edition there were specific sins against...

  • Haven’t had the time to read it yet but Holden did this the other way around and brought the Exalted to WoD. Perhaps it would be worth to look at.

    replied to Tremere Perdo Magica
    Had to chime back in to confirm that @Lian is correct that Kindred have no method of sensing magic, other than general Awareness ability and Aura Perception that can see ongoing magic in the aura, as Thaumaturgical Sight, the combo power I described earlier, specifically calls out it’s inability to help sense any other magic than Blood Magic.

    So basically they can only sense/notice obvious Magick used against them and use Perdo Magica to defend against those but subtler uses and effects will get through unnoticed.

    Personally I’ve always thought Perdo Magica to be strong as hell in what it does, but like said it is kinda one trick pony and those exp could have been put to more generally useful powers.

    Still despite it’s incredible strength Perdo Magica can be over powered by extended effects and rituals of Mages. And like said you need yo be able to detect the attack which is generally possible through Auspex 2, Thaumaturgy 1 combined power (if I remember the requisities correctly ) That detects magic. Otherwise you have no sure way to know if magic is really happening or their just chanting...

    Personally I wasn’t too fond of the Hannya in 2nd edition and much preferred 1st editions take on the Fair Folk. I think the Unshaped were reason enough for the Shaped to remain in Creation and only quest through the Wyld in search of power, Gossamer or to alleviate boredom and the very existence of Creation was enough for the Unshaped to hate it and seek it’s destruction.

    The addition of a new undefined threath from the Wyld that drives the Fair Folk to seek shape and to escape into Creation was unnecessary and kinda boring in my personal opinion. But as always YMMV.

    But the problem with tying memory to morality is that not all people, immortal or mortal, are necessarily that moral and why should such immoral people have worse memories or be less in touch to their memories due to their own nature.

    It is just plain wrong that bad people have weaker memories. Memory and morality are not one and the same.

    replied to Beast Storyteller's Guide
    If you do get to write for it, and even if you don’t, here are what I’d like to have added to your points.

    1) Some good discussion on those Beasts who do not believe in the lesson culture and how not teaching lessons does not equal acting foolishly on you hunger.

    2) some discussion on the possibility of not having Heroes be a thing at all. With other Begotten, the Unsatiable the other supernaturals and their Antagonists and the actual Hunters we really do not actually need Heroes as extra Antagonists. Explore the themes of vulnerability that the Heroes bring to a...

    In First Edition a Fair Folk Cataprchtoi (sp?) managed to fight the groups Dusk Caste Abyssal into a tie, both lost their last health level at the exact same initiative, the only thing that saved the Abyssal was that some of the damage inflicted during combat was bashing so she was merely unconsious while the Fae lay dead. True the Fae did not fight fairly and used any advantage possible but still the fight was epic and will be remembered. The high dicepools of the Fae and the ability to divide those big pools efficiently was the key in direct round to round combat because it was bleeding way...

    Personally I kinda dislike the idea of non-linear time.

    Has there been any revelation about Memory itself? Is it still tied to morality? That last part was my only dissappointment in 1st edition. And morality as power stat was aggravating in Mummy the Resurrection aswell.

    So if Memory is untangled from morality I’m more than happy. Non-linear time I can House-rule if I wish or I might like it after reading the 2nd edition, who knows.

  • At every game for the last over two decades there has always been atleast one player, if not more, who takes Generation with 5 points, unless ST specifically forbids it, and it has never broken a game. Even in DA where five points give you 7th gen and thus new trait max at 6 points.

    And people do that because of the many reasons already mentioned. Bigger Blood pool and faster spending are cool but those are not always the reasons people spend those points. Many do just because it is a stat they know they are unlikely or even completely unable to affect once the game begins. Chargen...

    1. Auspex - Simply one of the most useful Disciplines ever. Prophetic warning of danger, check. Enhanced senses, check. Aura Perception that allows you to gain all sorts of useful information from identifying diablerist to understanding someones emotional state to even identifying other supernaturals, Vampires included. Check. Telepathy, astral travel. Check and check. Not to mention that both thefirst level power and the prophetic warnings get better and stronger with each level so when you buy it up you not only gain new powers but enhance the first one further. Also gives...

  • The Boggan Birthright outright states that other Boggan may be present but no other observers. At least in C20 but I recall always playing them thus so it is likely that it has always been so, though apparently that is not directly mentioned in 2nd ed core book... wow. Seems I too have always Houseruled it working fine with other Boggans around untill now that C20 has made it into an actual rule.

  • Also it is just embarrasing to not have any melee when wielding your ritual stave, sword or dagger (all of which are fairly common).

    The pdf isn’t the issue, those can always be upgraded, the issue is the question about the print version. We all would like to have our physical books with the errata applied.

    This is false. Like I said in my post each tail doubles the lifespan of the fox until at 9 tails one is immortal or practically one at the least. This does not happen at rank 5 at which point the fox ”only” has 5 tails. So like I mentioned in my previous post rank 5 fox has roughly 1600 year lifespan give or take a century. The tail mechanics have not changed between editions as you can check from both Kitsune Breed Book in Hengeyokai and W20 Changing Breeds.


    True. I even quoted the relevant text from w20 changing Breeds.

    Yes this is the sleep/hibernate Gift...
