    No Entitlements! Seriously, where are the Entitlements?

    replied to Half-Damned - what do we know?
    As Satchel said, the Strix are linked to omens, which is generally what the dhampiri have power over. Fate is the source of their powers, but to a dhampir, it really doesn't matter to them apart from "Why the hell is my life a whirling tempest of weird?" That doesn't mean they aren't creatures of prophecy, mind; the Sanctified revere and fear them as the shepherds of shepherds, the ones who pick off vampires who succumb to corruption. But really, dhampiri care less about whether the stars are right rather than whether they can avoid being shot and/or enslaved because they are also an...

    replied to Half-Damned - what do we know?
    What was said above. Dhampiri do not have Disciplines, they have the fact that the very nature of being life born from death means they all have Fate Itself as their godparent. They have Twists, somewhat conceptual control over destiny, and besides their Beast being a second Vice that only rears its head when the dhampir is stressed, they all have a third Anchor, Destiny. Which they get Willpower from pursuing or actively thwarting, with both achievement and utter denial of resulting in a full refresh....

  • On Ipswich:

    I wonder if Lovecraft jokes are a thing there. It literally has deep one hybrids as its primary Fae-Touched ethnicity, many of whom are fishermen who spend much of their time underwater. The Asrai were natives that assimilated into the European settlers by crossbreeding and a site of strange, disquieting transformations inflicted on visitors, even. Mirror Universe Innsmouth.

    I can see a good one-shot being all about diving into the mysteries of the place despite unhappy locals trying to drive the players off.

    On Huntsmen-I wish we had stats,...

  • Okay. I honestly did not see that.

    EDIT: I like. I have a few things to suggest as well, especially a particular power that is both a source of their strength and their worst trait:

    Consult the Forgotten Martyrs:

    The (Guard/Pact) knows that reincarnation exists. Those who pass on, and do not leave ghosts behind, are washed free of memories and reborn. Supposedly, only the Light allows viewing of one's own past selves-and that's true. That's nature. The Dark, of course, is all about the unnatural-by bringing its power against the nature of the kharmic wheel...

  • (finally a moment to myself. Have the beginnings of the Enemy section!)

    The Enemy

    Let's be clear: The Guard does not hate the target it was meant to contain.

    That may sound odd, but let's reiterate: the Cold Guard does not hate the Dark. Fear it, despise its effects, and loathe the fools who drink of its unfiltered power and so become monsters...but they don't hate the Dark itself. Hating the Dark is like hating death; pointless, and often leads one down the path that ends with one becoming its embodiment. Fear the Dark, but recognize it is a part of nature,...

  • And I'm saying I have not had that problem. Besides people liking the Seasonals, I find it weird that schizoPOP is effectively complaining that using the skeleton of the Court design is too much work when there's an assumed default...when the Seasonals were the assumed default in the Underhill version too, just not at the front of the book.

    In fact, I fail to see how the Underhill version was much better, given how design of a new Court system was apparently levied on the ST every game, instead of every game where defaults (including the sample settings) every chronicle. That seems...

  • And?

    You are failing to convince me. The game is not marketed towards instant-mix local Freeholds. "If the Storyteller is committed" is a pretty damn big if to invoke if you're explaining the difficulty of homebrew. I would think that the Storyteller being committed is the whole point; a system just gives the effort a goal, it can't be summoned from nothing.

    And I say it very much is appreciated in the corebook, thank you. Having actual baselines is, y'know, better than by the seat-of-your-chair guestimation. See the Omega Point system from Unknown Armies-that...

  • Then don't try.

    I'm serious. Trying to create 40 new Contracts each and every time for a homebrew Court system is fucking insane. You want a functioning system, you only need, like, ten, total. How many are your players going to buy to begin with?

    That, and the complaint "There's too much awesome in the core Courts!" strikes me as...a bit pedantic. If it's really that hard, reskin other Contracts and dress them up in good thematics.

    Also, for me: Dude, what happened to Goblin Vows? I liked those. On the other hand, Clarity is actually way better...

  • Asking help in translating Dreaming concepts to Lost

    So, I finally bit the bullet and got the pdf of C20, and I must say: WHERE WERE YOU IN THE ORIGINAL CWOD!? WHERE!?

    To put it simply, I like it, whereas before, the first Dreaming book I read (and threw against the wall) was The Autumn People. However, I am primarily a Lost fan, so I'm more likely to translate things from Dreaming to Lost.

    Which is why I'm here, asking for more experienced help when fishing for suggestions.

    Off the top of my head:

    * Lost changelings and Kithain both exist and are often grudging allies. The Lost have an understandable...

    Speaking purely from fluff:

    Love the Centimanes, but how do they Exalt? What's the criteria for a ghost to suddenly merge with a dead(er) King of Five Fingers and become the replacement? Also, are they all Neverborn cultists and/or are there a few who really are semi-benevolent rulers of the dead?...

  • From the sound of it that was before there was a rebellion to be loyalist against. Long before.

    Me, I loved the Intimacy that says Mr. Ontological-Annhilator-Inna-Robot actually is pretty cool with Creation as a concept. Besides that also making him an actual dynamic character, it implies that he's not really a true monster who enjoys suffering, he just lashes out at people he feels are responsible for replacing his sinew with metal. Wouldn't you?

    I'mma planning on a pilot character for Kavara at some point, and he gets the Demon Tower to emphasize with the concept of...

  • Uh....

    Not quite. There's no such thing as a mass-produced weapon or anything with Evocations, but three-dots and below has a lot of utility stuff. Perhaps not able to be mass-produced to the extreme, but I doubt a Winterbreath Jar is anything unique. (it is, after all, a fridge)....

    replied to Arms of the Chosen
    I just realized something-

    If they are still a thing (and if they are not a thing, I will make them a thing), the main thing Hellstriders have over Warstriders is that they're cheap.

    Well, not cheap, but much less dependent on technical knowledge and infrastructure to make-they're all actually giant demons in fused armor suits. To make them, all you need is a bunch of demons to merge into one and enough material to armor the giant mess of eldritch muscle. That doesn't mean it's easy, but you don't need a cabal of sorcerers, an expert in several fields, and an understanding...

    replied to [2E] Ogres are *Metal*?
    As the person who made that metaphor, my definition:

    1. metal (met-l), adj. (slang)

    Possessing of a quality that is thought to of the same general topic as the subject of heavy metal album covers and songs.

    Dude, you fought your way out of Arcadia running on sheer rage felt towards the people that turned you into a monster and now you're a walking mystical tank with the ability to knock people unconscious by lightly dope slapping them. You are fucking metal....

    Why does the Lucifuge despise custody hearings?

  • Sounds like to me like the theme of a fairly casual day as a Spring Courtier-no worries, just enjoying the world while occasionally wondering if life was better beyond the Hedge, where things were so very dream-like.

    Now on to things that might be actual ambient music in a CofD show or game: Tell me, have you heard the Testament?
