    I wouldn’t mind seeing some Utterances from Book of the Deceived, but perhaps easing off the Ren prerequisites a tad.

    I like the change. I never cared for shifting target numbers, but I love the idea of Mummies screwing around with probability and Fate. On that front, I'm really happy to see the Advanced Action quality get some love. It was a cool idea from the first edition World of Darkness core that was never, ever used* before 2E Werewolf.

    * Apart from rules reprints in Innocents and Mind's Eye Theatre, a cursory search reveals it was only ever referenced twice, in Mirrors and Spirit Slayers. There's your CofD trivia for the day.

    I'm really digging the way Utterances work now (it reminds me a little of how Contracts in Changeling 2E interact with certain seemings). I'd forgotten how much of a roadblock first edition's Pillar prerequisites were. I like how the new system keeps the spirit of that but opens things up immensely.

    That section on the judges is worth this book's weight in Sekhem.

  • I feel like Protean would make a good fourth. It's got shapeshifting baked in, and you could do some cool Devotions with Auspex and Obfuscate with regard to mimicry.

    For an easy bane, maybe the gain the Daeva curse? Or, since you want it to be less reflective of the blood bond system, perhaps they grow Addicted to the people they feed on. Or the ones they use their mimicry powers on....

  • Dominate is an interesting Discipline. I've always felt like there's a bit of a hex on it, like it attaches itself to clans and then rings them out for all they're worth. Maybe that's confusing correlation and causation, but other "Dominate clans" have staked a claim in the All Night Society, and all seem to have suffered nasty ends. We know about the Dead Julii, obviously, and the Kindred of Central America remember a bloodline of tyrants who met their destruction at the hands of their slaves. European vampires tend to assume these tyrants were Lords doing Lord things, but they also...

  • Oooooh, interesting. That actually explains a few things. Now I think I understand the idea behind those Avarice Chronicle adventures a bit better....

  • Thank the old gods and the new. Man I hated that. The idea was interesting, but the implementation just didn't work....

    replied to Interesting mixed games
    One of the best games I've been in involved a mummy, a werewolf, a mage, a slasher, and a hunter traveling to the Underworld. The werewolf eventually died off and the player made a demon, which was actually the first time we had a chance to do anything with that particular system.

    In terms of good synergy, a Vampire/Mummy crossover would be fun, especially in Mummy 2E, where your vampire friend's power fluctuates in a really weird way each time you wake up.

  • It's not really a thing Kindred do generally, but the Ordo Dracul have a Scale for Coil of the Voivode called "Mass Embrace" (p. 159). It costs a single Humanity dot and a truckload of blood. It also risks creating Humanity 0 monsters....

  • I have thought about this subject!

    Nightmare, Obfuscate, and a slightly rejiggered version of the one in V20 all work. The V20 Chimerstry system follows the Requiem ethos of building on the basic power quite well.

    I'd say Obfuscate is a pretty good choice, though, as it does create illusions at higher levels. Maybe reskin the Obfuscate powers to be more about false images rather than invisibility. Or maybe the Ravnos have the ability to lend their Resilience to certain Obfuscate illusions in order to make...

  • I'm 90% certain Infinite Macabre was, if not the first, then the second PDF I ever actually bought for CofD, and it got stuck in my brain for a long time. I've thought a lot about the Orphans of the Sky meets World of Darkness game I'm pretty sure I'll never get a chance to run. Something about vampires and not knowing what a sun is......
