  • [New Shapeshifters] Lyrebirds - The Orpheans

    Something I brewed up a while back when asked about the possibility of bird-shifters. This remains very much a first draft; several ideas emerged as I was writing it which need streaming back in with the core concepts. However, I figured I'd toss it out there for people to pick over now, with the intent to refine it at some future stage


    Orpheans

    Consider the human body as an egg, a shell at once fragile and sturdy surrounding the potential that lies within. Under the right conditions, crack the egg open and you’ll find something mewling and piping within—a...

  • I will add links to the new sessions as they appear! As pgolasze13 said, sadly we missed the last two weeks as a player was unable to attend, but I'm really hoping we'll tackle session 8 this weekend.

    Sorry to hear you're getting lots of yapping lap dog videos Clearly Google should bow to the superiority of my actual play and focus dog-related searches onto Werewolf: the Forsaken content

    Also, some exciting news for Story 2 of Very Angry Dogs - it's got a story arc name already (Possession) and we may also be seeing one or two new player characters joining the pack...

  • Yeah, I absolutely overbuilt the setting compared to the initial prospect of a single story, and a lot of that'll hopefully come through in future stories regardless of how combat-specced the pack are - there's only so long they can get away with smiting things (and, to be fair, a lot of their shenanigans so far have actually involved unlikely successes with negotiation and the like. They're just still very keen to beat their opponents physically too ).

    The Eye is very much part of that wider set-up. The current opinion among the players seems to be that it's an idigam, which obviously...

  • The forums don't seem to want to let me multi-quote so I'll have to go through these one at a time!



    A lot of, well, research. Usually starting round some key interesting points that've grabbed my attention then expanding out from there - scouring articles and wikipedia entries and the innumerable books that Google has uploaded. Important content to look for, for me, has been content around local folklore and history, local culture and opinions; even a couple of articles about, for example, ghosts and ghost stories in Hong Kong written by Hong Kong folks or drawing directly...

  • Verge You're right - there isn't a Tribal Vow listed. Now, I'd like to claim something like, uh, it's on purpose due to the metaphysics of the early stage of the Tribe forming, so one hasn't yet anchored into a concrete symbolic form because the true nature of the Drinkers is itself not yet pinned down - and won't be until the internal dichotomy of the Pure/Forsaken alignment is ironed out.

    However, the truth is that I forgot to add one. I'll need to have a think about it.

    Terra Firma is apparently due to release this week, so you'll find some of the answers to this (and many other questions about Aeon-era Earth!) when it comes out... which I think will be Wednesday? The releases usually seem to come out around then.

    I don't know how long it'll be for Terra Firma to finish in proofing and go to general release, but you'll find answers to a lot of your questions in there.

    I will say that la Blessure doesn't really have a defined edge; there's not a distinctive line of 'everything from this point is fucked', and indeed there are also multiple 'epicentres' as the Esperanza came apart and scattered fragments across a wide swathe of land prior to impact. You're also not likely to have too many issues with French border patrols, because France doesn't have the power to maintain much like that any more;...

  • Glad to hear you're enjoying it!

    Anyway, figured I'd pick out and explain some bits and pieces that have cropped up in the game!

    The Drink
    When the pack piss off Jonathan Dunston enough to want to challenge them, he 'invites' them to the ceremonial drink to make his demand. This sort of thing is because I envisage werewolves in regions like this as having various age-old traditions they follow that keep violence to a minimum and honour local pacts and ways, but also this specific thing is an old Anglo-Saxon tradition that folds in concepts of vulnerability and fellowship....

  • And here are recordings of:

    Session 5 - where the pack seek their totem, but fall foul of the Shadow mockery of a court of law.
    Session 6 - where the pack argue for their identity before the Shadow magistrate, and face off with a war spirit of the Hrafnir.

  • I'm sorry to shatter your illusions on this one but I've literally never played any of the God of War games, so it'd be rather tricky for me to have taken inspiration for the Drinkers of the Well from them!...
