    replied to Thoughts on 'The World'
    And in Scion, the Gods are still fallible and likely backed a lot of the conquests themselves, and answered the prayers of their respective people when they prayed for victory in the invasion. It's also a trait of the World that the Gods don't get along, especially when the mortals Fatebind them into not being on the same side.

    That also ties into how the Theoi are; they can throw tantrums, but when it comes down to it if Zeus starts getting pissy about a Japanese skyscraper, he's going to have to go through Susanoo first to vent his displeasure. This is the same pantheon that holds...

  • I can see both Carthians and Ordo Dracul becoming quite intrigued (Carthians for similar applications to their Law, Dragons because Dominions are kind of like an enormous Wyrm's Nest, ruled over occasionally by an actual Wyrm).

    Though, onto antagonists;

    Strix: Who's this masked young turk? She seems a bit, ugh, human for your tastes, and she seems to rely on the authority of Gods you're pretty sure don't exist and definitely are sure don't care, but she seems to think those treasonous blood-drinkers are fugitives from her prison-home. Sounds like fun. She just asks you...

    Stolos Shadows: Strix

    Lunatic Exiles: Idigam

    Stormchasers: Alchemists (because Ranger Storm is a Promethean)

    Wardens of Woe: Reapers....

  • Yeah, it only makes sense if you're familiar with how gleefully Rooster Teeth hosts shows that seem like light comedy and suddenly turn into dramatic epics with light comedy-style characters. Red Vs. Blue, anyone?

    Darkness Rangers seems like something similar, high-action funny Power Rangers stuff mixed in with seriously dark villains not afraid to turn to mind games to break their adversaries.

    IC:

    Actually, something I just noticed;

    You know how each of the BBEG factions have their own instrument in their leitmotif? The Stolos Shadows their...

  • OOC: Is anyone else getting a Rooster Teeth vibe from this? I can imagine the Nomad of Nowhere happily wandering in and nobody realizing he's from a different continuity. Cue crossover with the baddies and Toth's crew trying to one-up each other to get him and his animation powers.

  • No, because the term there is actually proper; the geist encounters something that causes it to panic and react instinctively. Forcing it to confront the damn thing and not being careful about it traumatizes it further and naturally results in it being a bit pissed off at you. This ties in with the idea that all geists are carrying a lot of emotional baggage. That, and the Brujah preview had some...other context I won't go into here. (Don't ask. Seriously, don't.)

    21C Hermit: It's a psychological term for whatever provokes a PTSD reaction. Assholes have tried to use it for "anything...

  • Yeah, Simon's seriously unnerving. It's like Series One Void (and I just noticed they switched pronouns, makes me think of Void as his own thing), except while you could always tell what Ranger Void wanted (hurting her other half in some way, and reveling in how much the team needed her at times despite her cheerfully stating how much she enjoyed toying with them), Conquest has his own agenda. I saw a couple SFX similar to how Eclispe calls on her ghost attacks, which leads me to think he has his own Void too, but given how he mocked Morticia for not "training" Void properly, I get...

  • Another year, another season. Good to see that Netflix's audience knows good animation when they see it. Hear they actually made a continuance of the original series, anyone got a bead on that?

    So, they're really leaning on the fact that Morticia tied to ghosts this season, going by the teasers. Also, Void seems to be his own character again, which is awesome, though he seems to be more of a Berserk But Fundamentally Noble Protector kind of superpowered evil side this time around (anyone see him break down and beg Morticia for forgiveness after he had to drain one of Chris' trees...

    Psychics maybe, Lucfiuge definitely; the former is just above humanity, and the latter has literal genetics from demons. They both might provide that extra kick to richness for an elder to digest. Even more importantly, they're both interesting stories; tell me you don't hear "psychic-drinking vampire" and don't immediately imagine an ethereal Dragon parapsychologist who dances from report to report, seeking psychics to shelter, study, and sate her thirst, and "demon-drinker" sounds like outright bragging rights among the Sanctified and Circle of the Crone....

  • Krewes With Members From Other Gamelines

    So, with the full Krewe rules, I'm looking at them, and I'm already wondering what happens if the core membership of a krewe, aka the PCs, includes monsters who didn't necessarily die before they became more than human. Since anyone can do Ceremonies, it's not a stretch to imagine even a situation where Bound aren't the majority, and this dead man's party is a total monster mash (with the right members, they can start up a real thriller with the proper time warp, though if they're strapped for time they can conjure up some spooky scary skeletons...I'll stop now).

    So, I was wondering,...

  • Nobody knows where the coins that all ghosts come into existence with that allow them to open an Avernian Gate without being sucked through once come from either. It's a mystery and a plot hook to examine; to be frank, a Bound channeling that Haunt is effectively dying without actually being dead enough to send their geist into survive-at-all-costs mode; at that point, what is considered "normal" has gone out the window, and we aren't dealing with a normal ghost anymore....

  • Can we talk about the preview now?

    I really like how Chthonians are often eldritch Underworld fish. They live (?) in the Rivers, of course they look somewhat aquatic. And ghosts will eat them if they can, because they are fish.

    Also, we got ourselves a Dominion Conquest system, for when you get sick of an Old Law. Or a Kerberos.

  • Hey, early preview of the Legions of the Dead.

    Quick summation:

    1) The living can have ghosts of their past come to life; Phantom Limbs are a symbiotic version, but it's just as common, if not more so, for a Doppleganger to be a crazed, incomplete version of a person who desperately wants their living self to become who they left behind. And they merge.

    2) Animals do not normally leave ghosts, but only because nobody sapient remembers them. Anyone who has owned a pet, or has developed a healthy fear or awe of a specific beast, can tell you that's not exactly...

  • It's also intriguing and hints the Leviathan is no fan of the Chthonic Gods; after all, the "stable" system of the Underworld involves letting Reapers abuse people. I can see a Pilgrim cult worshiping the Leviathan, and being some of the most noble Sin-Eaters you've ever met; they're here to restore the proper order of the Underworld, one that helps you move on, not get trapped in your looping passions....

  • I noticed that too. I wonder if Sin-Eaters are regarded by the Arisen as "lesser Deathless"; they still age and succumb to mortality eventually, and they need to eat the lives of others to return to life, but apart from that, there's little-to-no downsides to their condition. A loyal demon bought them back to life, and so they are attuned to the deep heartbeat of Sekhem, especially that which flows in the Underworld and Duat....

  • Far as I know, there's not a proper term yet for Bound with Tyranny, as opposed to Bound who just aren't Sin-Eaters; Tyranny is an ST-Only stat, because at that point you've gone past the pale of acceptable behavior, Tyranny is in a section we don't have yet. But "Tyrant Bond" is as good a term as any. Or "Chthonic Bond", to tie in with the mythos....

  • Oh yeah, I forgot; Sin-Eaters have a Nephandi version now too.

    Or more accurately, those who decide that, rather than deal with their geist as a decent fucking person, destroy their geist's Touchstone and change Synergy to Tyranny.

    That is a very interesting twist on the "deal with the devil" trope; the "devil" is like that because it wants to get the fuck away from you, you monster.

    I want to play a Sin-Eater whose geist actually belonged to a man he sacrificed himself to kill. His geist is eternally grateful, and urges him to finish...
