    Obtenbration

    I think I know the answer to this but I was looking for other's thought on it. With Arms of the Abyss, does each arm get an attack or is it all based off the number attacks the cainite gets?

  • Assuming the demon he is "harassing" doesn't take over or something like that, a solid maybe is my answer. Assuming he went after the Antes that couldn't fight back directly, He might be able to suppress the first one. The second one however is where it would become sketchy. I think suppressing one power that large would be the challenge of decades or more than a century long process. So out of the "available" Antes, I think it would take at least 1000 years to diablerilize and completely suppress each Ante. It could have worked super long term assuming the demon played...

  • I dig the idea. The concept is a neat idea and you should keep with it. But begin a bit smaller. The Black Fury "just so happens" to find a pimp who is using his ladies to poison the clients during sex. The clients don't die right away but end up spreading the poison to their partners and what not. Based on what you were saying, this is a good start to motivate at least one player in character and if they are just going with the flow, you have a nice start to introduce the main villain. The pimp is working for the villain where he obtained the drugs. Now the pack has an enemy they can...

  • Its not so much the character having a day job as a social worker, but role playing the social worker aspect is just not fun to me. Its like role playing flipping burgers. I don't mind furiously attacking Magadon because the drugs are influencing the minds of cases, but just social work...nah....

  • This is something I wish I could agree with, but I use gaming partially for escapism. Having basically a job while role playing is not going to get me interested. This recently came up in a Mage game where I'm supposed to solve baby mama drama. I just walked away. In most of my games I want to be something more than a werewolf who is a social worker. Not if the social worker is finding that a lot of her cases have Magadon drugs and something is coming out tainted and there is a greater reason why they are behaving, I can get behind that game a little....

  • For this part. It doesn't have to be bonded together. Making up numbers here, a 9 foot cage of silver and outside that a 9 foot and an inch steel cage. The steel is a buffing, in crinos, its flesh will be pressed up against a lot of silver. Now Rips Your Faceoff has to make a choice: take the damage while ripping through the steel or find another way out.




    Maybe tarnished isn't the right word. What I meant by tarnished is unpolished, I forget if I clarified that. Its still pure silver, its just not reflective....

  • Its wouldn't be an alloy by any real means. Maybe I misphrased. Its a second dome on the outside of the first silver dome. To cover the silver thing, I haven't read anywhere that states it must be clean, polished silver. Just silver. I don't remember reading about alloys either but that sounds right and I like to take people's word on things like that....

  • I'll be honest, I'm not familiar with the setting books. I like to use my own characters(it throws off players who have read quite a bit). That said, thats not so unusual for a Prince. I would consider that to be more determination and using the machinations of vampires to gain favors and use them for disciplines....

  • Those three specifically are different. Two of them being magical practices. Thaum and Necro. Catiffs don't need discplines to come to power. A great leader is just a great leader. For physical discplines, I agree no tutor or mentor is required. Things like celerity, potence, and fortitude are very common. Clan specific though. Protean I would imagine they would have to see it once to know its possible. Same for presence and dominate. using obtenbration, how would a catiff know you can reach into the Abyss and control it. If not, its like rebuilding a car engine without knowing anything about...

  • Maybe I misread the books but I don't remember reading that catiff can just "develop" discplines out of the blue especially not the magical ones because you would be unable to perform a ritual without knowing how to do it. Things like protean maybe but not Thaum or necro and vicissitude is a completely matter on its own.I'll go back and reread the section on catiffs but I really don't remember that.

    As a note for the meta about that, I don't know many STs who allow clan specific discplines for catiffs....

  • I was speaking more in general vampire society. it could be perceived as a weakness and the Giovanni like all other kindred would hate to look like they have weakness. A Giovanni who can't Giovanni properly could be(not always) could be seen as a weakness to the clan....

    I played a street rat matter mage. He always carried a ring of keys on him. He would insert the key and turn it, using matter to open the lock and say it was a master key. He would also enhance drugs, speakers, clothing as well.

  • I figure they would be destroyed on the spot. There can't be a problem if you destroy it. No one would know. They obviously wouldn't talk about it either.

  • I would still argue that it only effects mirror. If it is an infrared sensor no problem. It all goes back to if the device is using a mirror to capture the image. Since a lot of devices don't have mirrors as a part of the mechanism, I think it reduces the effect of the weakness. Now they would be able to hang a flatscreen with a mirrorless camera attached and see themselves as well as do their own makeup and what not. It would be difficult to walk through some electronic stores if they pass the wall of cameras though, since you would have a mix of the different type of cameras....

    Never played/ran a game that long. The highest I've seen a PC get to is Rank 4. NPCs at Rank 5.

    I would imagine it would take several years to reach that point. I don't know how I feel about it personally. I know their powers are immense and I would cation against it. However if the player earns it, why not.

  • In the current Werewolf game I'm in, I'm playing a Lupus Fianna Galliard. He writes. Maybe I will upload the "epic" here. I've played him like he doesn't understand some human concepts but he has a grasp of the english language. So he decided to start writing. I didn't do the broken english thing that some people do. But the words he uses tend to be more simple on a regular basis.

  • I'm not sure how many modern cameras use mirrors in them, but I would say if the camera has a mirror, no one sees the person on the camera. If the camera has no mirrors, fully visible.
