    replied to Salubri and Diablerie
    The eye can be a problem hence wearing loose hoodies with big hoods is recommended. The eye is open and visible whenever a Salubri uses Valeren/Obeah (V20 and VtDA20) and Auspex (V20 Lore of the Bloodlines). The eye starts manifesting at 2nd level of Valeren/Obeah and is fully formed at Third level (V20 and VtDA20) except that for Salubri it fully manifests at first level (VtDA20). Though according to V20 Lore of the Bloodlines the eye originally manifests as a bleeding open wound untill the eye forms fully within a 100 years, personally I would ignore V20LotB in this regard. Both VtDA20 and V20LotB...

    I like the amount of detail on the first but would personally go with the second due to it having space for four Arcanoi, its formatting seems easier on the eyes and I think one can fit the necessary details on the notes line.

  • That sounds rather good and will propably be the best solution....

  • Yes. Basically your Arcanoi rating doesn’t care which kind of power you have at each level. So theoretically a Guild Wraith could have Arcanoi at level 5 with only initiate powers or 1-2 initiate, 3 common and 4-5 initiate, or the other way around or any other combination therof.

    So when you buy a level of Arcanoi you choose whether you buy it as common or initiate, and you make this choice at each level, but you can go back to buy the alternate power you left behind later, if that makes better sense. I find this surprisingly difficult concept to communicate clearly even though...

  • Sorry I have not had the time to comment... better late than never I suppose.

    The Third options problem is that you dont need to buy all the powers linearly. That is let’s say you have common Arcanoi at level 4, you could then learn initiate power of level 3 without having initiate powers 1 and 2. Hence there is a problem with your Third sheet in that just recordings levels on a single small line makes it difficult to mark these discrepancies. Also since as another scenario you could have Arcanoi at level 4 but the powers you know could easily be initiate for 1 and 2, common power...

    replied to Ask Neall
    Unless Novas will be severly nerfed I’d say TC has to account for bigger things than Scion. After all Aberrant had Universe Creation as an example of the heights of Nova potential, basically Nova could have created the Titans, Gods and everything else at the high end of their power.

    So the reason scale works slightly different on both game lines likely has less to do with power level per se but more to do with low power games being more important in TC. After all TC is basically about three different if connected games while Scion is a single game that is meant to start at low power...

  • True. Personally I have never been too fond of Ravana-Ravnos connection, it really does not belong here. Ravana of 1k Hells is not, as you pointed out, connected to VtM at all and like said in my opinion that is the best portrayal of him. Back in the very old WW forums the writer of Ravana chapter of 1k Hells came out to say, after the week of Nightmares mess, that Ravana is not nor was ever meant to be Ravnos Antediluvian, Naturally he said nothing of any other Ravnos connection because at that time we didn’t yet have Revised CB: Ravnos and no one thought to ask about that.

    But...

  • True, though the title holds enough power to remake it’s holder into something more than they were before. Ravana is able to flaunt daylight, and so is clearly not a vampire anymore, Mikaboshi clearly is immortal without being bound by Paradox Etc. So the holder of the title becomes the title, more or less, or at the very least the power over souls and the Hell that houses them allow the titles holder to overcome their previous vulnerabilities.

    For more on Yama King’s I suggest you read 1000 Hells it goes into detail on them, some clues to Ravanas ascension can also be found in...

  • In addition to the aforementioned changes Book of the Wyrm 20th also has a lot of new material that cannot be found on the previous editions. Like information on other Fallen shifters aside from BSD’s and Buzzards, 20th also has the Antara, Histpah, Mnetics, Bitter-Grins, the Mad Destroyers, Balefire Sharks and the Xibalan. It also introduced some new Wyrm Critters the Mockeries whom consist of War Wolves, Anurana, Samsa, Kerasi and Yeren. It also has information on the Chulorviah who were first introduced in Blood Dimmed Tides.

    All in all if your going to get one Book of the Wyrm...

  • I am truly sorry, mate. But the fact is that while true that the books are far from perfect, and somethings are a bit all over the place, this particular matter is quite clear. Personally I cannot see how much clearer it should be than what has been already quoted. And before you accuse me of insulting you or your intelligence I assure you I am doing neither.

    I am, and to my understanding many others are as well, like you in that when I started playing rpgs the rulebooks were just that, rulebooks. Everything had a rule and if it didn’t in worst scenario it was interpreted as something...

    It is also the same symbol as Armageddon rpgs Mark of Leviathan. So it isn’t that original as a symbol for Evil cult.

    replied to Advice on Raksha character creation
    The Fair Folk do not have much in the way of healing Charms, partially because in their natural environment they do not need one and partially because they are at the core selfcentered beings and as such do not heal others. And why would they since they can just make new servants if old ones get broken.

  • Just want to chime in a bit here with some personal experience.

    So I love V20 and VtDA20 versions of the Gangrel weakness with features becoming long lasting/permanent on botches or with player input, I particularly like some of the bigger features given in CB and if a player wants one after a botch it suits me fine. I am not too fond of the permanent feature after each Frenzy since it can really screw up things fast.

    As an a personal example I had a self-control 4 Gangrel and during the first game session due to horrendous luck with the dice I frenzied a total of four...

  • It is admittedly vague but personally I would call for the resistance roll every time the victim wants to act instead of just enjoying him/herself but remember that once the resistance succeeds if the victims action is something that does not break physical contact with the Infernalist the effects return full force, in the case of Ecstasy or if s/he does not succeed in breaking line of sight in case of Intrusion.

    That is my interpretation atleast, naturally YMMV.

    replied to World Endings Other Than Ragnarok
    For Aztecs these ends were cyclical things as well, if my memory serves me right were the fifth people so the world has already ended 4 times and people remade from bones or ashes of those before. I seem to remember 5th people were created from the bones of our predecessors but could be misremembering....

  • True but still I find it bad form especially since Demon also borroved Nhudri and Charons. if they are meant to be different characters they could just come up with original names, it’s not like there wouldn’t be angelic names up for grabs for an angel of death no need to involve Charon.

    But this derails the conversation at hand. Personally I did not like that one thing in DtF at all, the name stealing from other lines that is, even though I quite liked the game itself quite abit as well as Devil’s Due. But this is really a small irritating matter and YMMV on how much it bothers...

  • I would not give Daimoinon through pacts with Demons. Dark Thaumaturgy, sure. Why? Dark Thaumaturgy is basically just like any Blood magic except it has been created by Demons to corrupt it’s user, so it is powered by the infernal and its magical principles are basically Daimoinon on the other hand derives it’s power from the True Names of the Children, those Names corrupted and diluded to obscurity still hold incredible amount of power. That is the power tapped into when using Daimoinon the only cost is that recordings the Names will bring the Children closer to awakening and calling out...
