    Part of that point is because, yes, sympathizing with vampires as PCs (and more, but that's an entire different topic) but also highlighting that no one is truly good. Humans in the real world do awful, awful things for 'good' reasons, and this is just that same phenomenon....

    And yet just about everything about fleshcrafting was 'at storyteller discretion' just without that disclaimer, in prior editions....

  • And that's what I get for making posts long after I should've went to bed.

    He said offer the option of a Clan Compulsion on a Messy Critical. I'll see if I can find the interview again, it was linked on the WoD5 facebook at one point....

  • He talked in another interview elsewhere and stated that, if he had to do the core book over again, he'd offer the option to take a Clan Compulsion in place of a Bestial Failure. Which is a pretty good compromise....

    It adds a level of strategy to your WP use as well; if you need successes and need crits, you can reroll dice that already succeeded as well, in hopes to get more criticals. Or if you have a messy crit, you can reroll the non-hunger part of that (assuming your Messy Critical is only one one Hunger Die) to undo the messy part....

  • A regular success on something that isn't resisted is based on the difficulty; but 1 success is the baseline. It's not like prior editions where you needed 3 successes to completely do something....

  • Modiphius is a traditional retailer that does print runs and distributes, rather than being digital only with PoD. So they don't normally do print on demand, as they print their own books directly.

    You could do worse than asking a local retailer, I believe it was mentioned fulfill via Alliance for game and comic stores. Preorders have already shipping, so if your LGS ordered any copies via retail distribution channels, they'd be on their way that way too....

  • The real answer is 'the core book wasn't designed to have Literally Everything Ever' and things will come back in time, tweaked to fit the balance of the new system, such as the rituals for fire and such in Cults.

  • As Draconis said. The whole 'Dread Gaze and Daunt' thing was written before that power was written, to be frank. But yes, it's usable in combat. You'd freeze them for the duration of maintaining eye contact or the vampire-based turn duration, and if someone attacked them they'd get a free attack and then the power would break. Basically you can't stunlock someone for infinite damage, but it is certainly (and has always been) intended ot be used in combat....
