    replied to Modern RPG Safety and Wraith20
    Regardless of, (and even that is debatable), the original intent or purpose for safe spaces, privilege, and similar jargon, these concepts have very distinct meanings now, and it is not "recent". But that is irrelevent. Those things have changed into two mutually exclusive concepts, and everything in between, and are, factually, now ways to end discussions or debates when sides can not counter others or lack empathy to see other sides points of views or problems. (The exact thing they are, suppossedly, intended to prevent, right?) They are very loaded, hot-button concepts that have...

    For me, it really depends. I am not going to go out of my way to, well, essentially force the Paladin to fall no matter what choice they make, but I might consider not giving a bonus to their degeneration roll if they did not at least attempt other means to end the conflict, (non-lethal, negotiation, even Dominate to flee).

    It is only really "in self defense" if there is not really another viable option, within reason, and even then, it does not make killing ok if subduing or otherwise ending the threat could, reasonably, work instead.

    I got to page 6, but not the end before posting. The obvious answer, to me, why the Sabbat would not allow a pack to create Childer, even non-True Sabbat to be eaten is because it breeds weakness and cowardous. The pack did not earn it. They did not hone their skills asva Cainite or a hinter or a badass and claim their due reward, they simply allowed themselves to act very much like the very Elders they oppose.

    Allowing this to exist risks it spreading, and as much as the Sabbat likes to trick themselves into thinking they are different than the Cam and Elders, the fact is that even...

    I know, V20 used some very poor wording on this case. But, that is why we have all the prior editons, and different opinions on which people find best.

    I disagree. People seem to be using a fantasy superhero action movie version of cops and military, or truely, mistakenly, believe that they shot people all the time.

    At best, an arguement can be made that they, generally speaking, but not even close to universally, might be put into situations that might trigger a very specific sin against Humanity, but not all, or even most of them. And again, committing a sin (against Humanity) doesn't drop your Humanity. Its when you stop caring that your Humanity goes down. Circumstances do apply, as does your Nature and intentions....

    I just wanted to pipe in a second. I am a soldier, and am currently deployed. The primary focus for drilling is not to kill. Or even to hurt others. The primary focus is to protect yourself and also very much others. In our combatives training, our specific martial arts, we are really taught two things, to take a hit, and how to wrestle and detain enemies. Striking others is not even part of it until much higher levels, and even then it is primarily used to train other soldiers to take a hit rather than using strikes, (kicks, punches, whatever) against enemies.

    This includes training...
