  • I love the old Belial's Brood book, but having seen the complete draft of this, Brood 2.0 is easily my favourite version now.

    (I'm so hype for you all to see this book)...

  • Can I just say that the art in this book is amazing? The illustrations of Coeus and SK/23 are far creepier than anything I imagined.

    p. 75: The 1-5 rating for the Implant Dread Power is an artifact of an old draft I forgot to cut; it shouldn't have dots. Cut "+ Implant" from the Dice pool, and change Coeus's Dread Power stats so it doesn't have the (3) after Implant

  • Playing a Zeka is playing Promethean on hard mode.

  • One of my goals for the four sublimati I wrote was to make sure they weren't exclusively ravening monsters. Yes, their motives mostly involve eating, but they do have other desires. Coeus is a (weird) idealist, Spark has a bit of empathy for animals, Daisy is a walking tragedy, and SK/23...well, SK/23 is kind of a jerk, actually? I don't know if I feel too bad for it....

    replied to Powers
    For the sake of a concrete example, over a year-long chronicle, where we played every week, my character ended up with two 5-dots, two 3-dots, and a 1-dot. All of them were bloodline/clan Disciplines, and a single in-Mystery Coil of the Dragon. A lot of EXP was going into Disciplines, but I got a fair number of Merits and a few Skill dots here and there.

  • Dominate is definitely a subtle Discipline, or else it wouldn't be useful for making sleeper agents and erasing memories...In fact, with Mesmerize alone, memory isn't really an issue: "She can even mess with the victim’s memory, making one statement about the current scene that victim will remember as truth." Which could easily be I wasn't here or Steve was here, too. Yes, the player knows Steve wasn't there, but the character remembers it very well. Steve's a Ventrue, isn't he?

    That being said, if the character (not the player) is exceptionally paranoid about Dominate,...

  • I ran a Requiem for Rome game where the Julii elder bane was that their Disciplines didn’t work on the Strix/ephemeral brings at all. I don’t know if I’d do that again, but I made it a surprise for the Julii character, so it made for a nice moment of horror.

  • To me, the fun of playing a Lancea et Sanctum character is portraying a vampire who wants to be a monster and thinks they can feel good about it. On the one hand, you're damned, so all the Jesus stuff doesn't apply to you. No good works salvation for you, but yes yes yes BDSM parties and Eyes Wide Shut-style (pardon the pun) masquerades, with a touch of gothic vampire liturgy for good measure. If you were repressed in life because you feared the Almighty might punish you, well, it's too late for that now.

    On the other hand, being damned still means you're going to Hell, but you're...

    replied to Tracking player essence
    My ST had us use different coloured beads for both types of Essence. It's not ideal (you wouldn't have an exact count), but it would provide a more obvious visual, and you'd always know when people are discarding/refilling.

  • It might also be that many of the other gamelines haven't had their second editions published yet; of the original "limited" gamelines, only Promethean is out. Hunter, Geist, and Mummy (and technically Changeling, since 2E's not out to the public yet) are still on first edition, to some degree or another. They may well wait until the 2E versions are available as well.
