  • Yeah, I hear there was a bit of a scheduling kerfuffle; they wanted Morticia's arc to be before theirs, for whatever reason. Also, the Tsarina Pestis arc and its...rather mind-screwy antagonists. Nice touch that they called out Sterliza for being just as much of a monster as the Psychos for her blind hatred of Pestis leading her to thoughts like "it's not really evil if I bring down this building to kill Vizier Fever..."...

  • Having seen Endgame, I'm tempted to make Strange a (Seriously, Endgame spoiler!)
    Euthanatos, given the expert use of Entropy he shows and the use of the Good Death. Also I feel at the end there that Thanos succumbed to Jhor after it had already been eating at his mind for a while.

    Yeah. I see why they call themselves that (it's essentially Egyptian for "steward"), but "junta" is a term for a group of people, you sit on a Junta, you aren't one. (personal note), "dapifier" makes me think "dapper", which makes me think that the Maa-Kep are a bunch of highly competent tailors and male politeness coaches)....

  • What he said. Hope, to me, is essential to horror; if there is no hope, even a slight and transient one, why are you even bothering trying to be safe?

    It's why Outlast 2 didn't get a lot of critical acclaim. Without even hope of understanding what's going on, "because it's scary" just doesn't work....

  • Point there, but I get the sense that a lot of punk media seems to be under the impression that any idealism at all is bad. I'm thinking Shadowrun at its worst, where it's expected that you're essentially fine-tuning the system that drove you to become a criminal mercenary in the first place. Which isn't really punk, but then again, it thinks it is, no matter how funny the episode of Terrible Writing Advice mocking it was.

    From what I can tell, Hopepunk is a genre that tells you that cynical attitude is actually part of the system; compassion is in itself an act of rebellion against...

  • Exactly what I meant by "twisting."

  • OK, here's the pending revision:

    Regalia: Renamed Vaccination, representing a member that has been symbolically made the "needlepoint" of their faction for a mission. Otherwise the same, though bestowing a Vaccination is often more science-based than Regalia.

    Ceremonies: Not used. Rather, they use Tactics, a la Hunter: the Vigil Mortal Remains. One extra Experience charge allows the tactic to be learned as a Plasmid, an explicitly supernatural version meant to serve both to influence the supernatural from a supernatural perspective, and to affect the Contagion...

  • Okay, nice suggestions.

    You think Sworn Tactics could involve supernatural stuff, being custom Vectors and stuff?

  • Hacking the Geist Krewe Rules for Sworn Factions (Help Wanted)

    I'm trying to build a game focusing on, essentially, "Superspies with Fangs Against the Contagion" over on RPGnet; while there's a lot of interest in it, I do want to show that the players are, in forming a firm dedicated to solving Contagion-related problems, are becoming an organization with its own unique toolkit, to tie in with the lore hints that there is such a thing as custom Vectors.

    So, as the title suggests, I'm representing the new faction and its assets, along with other factions, False groups, and the occasional Carrier cult, as krewes.

    I've got...

  • My personal headcanon is that showing up in shiny pirate gear is an extreme faux pas in modern Courts; it invokes images of sponsored, legally accepted privateers, which is where the Arcadian slave-taking variety got their fashion and name from...

    Showing up in bedraggled buccaneer garb, hand-me-down sailing stuff, or especially ghost pirate chic if you're the kind involved in ghost wrangling, is A-OK though; so long as you look like you're not sponsored by anyone, it hardly speaks badly of you to invoke comparisons to mutineers against oppressive captains or enemies of the Spainish...

  • Avast! How Be The Various Splats Embarking On Piratical Voyages?

    Well, that.

    Inspired by Dark Eras 2 and playing the Vampire Coast faction in Total War Warhammer, I was wondering how the supernatural set would embark on a glorious career of naval robbery and ship-jacking. As well as how they'd approach the non-robbery aspects of piracy, like actually unloading the loot and enjoying the acquisitions outside of prison or the gallows.

    For bonus points, this can be the classic Golden Age(s) of Piracy, or more modern.

    I'm sorry to say this, but your rulebook seems to be missing several pages. Specifically, the part about Apotheosis.

    Yeah, you may not have directly injured your Judge, but condemning him to an eternity of screaming uselessly after being put on perma-mute is roughly like mooning Zeus and forcing him to send you to Elysium. You have just upended an entire cosmological view and proven the Judge isn't actually that powerful.

    That, and this philosophy is boring. Even Call of Cthulhu understands that; you may have to lower your expectations a bit, but knocking out Nyarlathotep...

    I think they cut the AKD to make way for the Circle of Bones.

    Who are apparently necromancers and shamans for justice.

    Can't really complain....
