  • p. 10, sidebar: I don't think the thing about Gotham being based on Trenton, Ontario is true? Gotham is based on New York. It looks like that information comes from a single Wikipedia page, and nowhere else (at least on the web).

  • I've kind of used Belial's Brood for that purpose. In most of my games, when players meet the Brood, they're really just encountering a bunch of neonates who got seduced with promises of easy power and cool demon powers. The actual Brood members (all two of them, likely), wait in the background and wait for everyone to kill each other....

  • Not so, but it does have a caveat (edit: if you mean generally speaking). Wolf-Blooded / human packs with no Uratha can learn Wolf Rites, as per the Moon's Grace Merit in The Pack. It's an edge case, but there's a precedent. That being said, I don't fully follow your argument, wyrd, so I don't know if that helps any....

    replied to Resilience question
    Long story short, it's a non-arbitrary choice to keep Resilience from being too good. Aggravated damage is very rare in 2E, but potentially devastating; lethal damage is less destructive, but more common. Making the negation of lethal damage an active effect forces players to spend resources (Vitae), much like the other physical disciplines, and prevents Resilience from being a must-buy. Indeed, that's why vampires already inherently downgrade most sources of damage. From an in-setting perspective, it's slightly counter intuitive, but it's ultimately for (for lack of a better term) game balance....

  • Funny enough, the Mekhet I'm currently playing is basically a Dominate Malk.

    I do sometimes wish there were a little more character variation in Requiem. I ultimately prefer the more archetypal clans (paired with bloodlines), but I think I'd like to see more things like the Jiang-Shi; Masquerade has no shortage of neat weirdo clans to choose from, and that is something I miss at times....

  • That's more or less where I'm at. Like, I kinda love the VtM (Revised) metaplot. That's what makes it sexy, and it tends to be what draws me back in. But then, I also kinda hate it? I'd never want that kind of overarching setting in Requiem beyond story hooks. The stuff I'm genuinely, unironically fond of in VtM isn't all that different from what's in Requiem.

    I've done lots of conversion stuff, as is evident from my signature, but more and more, I'm less and less interested in integrating the settings (I look back at some of my old conversion documents and am reminded I was young...

  • p. 4: The "Toreador Apocrypha" entry isn't coloured red
    p. 4: "The Domain of Moghadishu" heading is running into the page number
    p. 85: The apostrophe in the "Guardian's Gaze" header is invisible.
    p. 86: "(...the Ramanga don't correct them,)..." -- comma should follow parenthesis.
    p. 100: "Tracker's Mark" header has an invisible apostrophe
    p. 100: "(...page 337,)..." -- comma should follow parenthesis

  • It's not a KS reward. I think it's been conflated slightly with the Tome of Secrets.

  • Something I regret that we didn't put in the Beast core, as an inspirational media example, was Jean Cocteau's La Belle et la Bete. It's an amazing example of a Beast with a Lair, as well as the power of dreams and nightmares....

  • From everything Rich, Rose, and even the people at the new WW have said, it truly doesn't seem like there's any intent to cancel the line. There are numerous CofD books in development (both announced and yet-to-be announced), and, as no father pointed out, the whole point of the name change was to differentiate the Worlds of Darkness so that there wouldn't be as much confusion. Tabletop is only one part of the transmedia effort new WW is putting together, and it's presumably not the one they're putting the most money into. This is just my two cents, but I doubt they would've gone to the effort...

  • Correct. Number of successes only matter when you succeed exceptionally, in that getting five or more allows the player to choose an extra thing that happens from the list on p. 115. You move primary factor up its chart (if desired) by Arcana dots minus 1.

  • Yeah, the old gods are my sticking point on an analogue, too. Werewolf kind of fits for superficial reasons, but I feel like there's a little Changeling and Mage, and a dash of Beast....

  • It's not the right WoD, but just based on the first episode, I got a very Mage: The Ascension feel off it. Very Traditions vs. Technocracy (I haven't read the book, but my friend and partner both tell me that's a decent enough way of looking at it).

    For CofD, I almost got a Werewolf meets Demon feel. I really liked it...

  • Another thing for the character sheet: That note about permission to photocopy seems to be another artifact.

  • Bookmarks: The sub-bookmarks for Appendix I: Gallain are out of order.
    p. 26: "but you can by with fewer"
    p. 26: "so here we are again in 2016"
    p. 27: "Appendix 2: The Enchanted Here you’ll find rules for Merits and Flaws" -- Merits and Flaws are in Chapter 3; there should also be a colon after Enchanted....

  • In the same vein, I feel like the Guy Maddin aesthetic has a place in CofD, too. My Winnipeg, indeed.

    (The general strike would be pretty interesting too.)...
