    replied to [2E] Alternative Daeva Clan Bane
    As much as I fancy the Daeva, I'm no fan of the current version of their clan bane, since I agree with the OP it seems overly burdensome and restrictive for certain kinds of feeding styles and character concepts. However if one is not willing or able to house rule it, or adopt other strategies to circumvent it, there is always the option of the Coil of Ziva to effectively nullify a burdensome Clan Bane.

    It's not just about Befouling. There is also the fact the Pentacle has demonized valuable knowledge about the nature of souls and life-extension magic out of moral panic about the Tremere, who for all their nastiness aren't going to cause the walls of reality to crumble, or do much worse than any mundane serial killer, in the foreseeable future. Guilt by association is just stupid and harmful. Moreover, Scelesti in all evidence have been thriving in the last few millennia, so I've my doubts suppressing knowledge about the Abyss is that effective a strategy to combat them. As Dave said, in the...

    I'm confused. If according to the new rules a Rabashkim can only use Befouled praxes and rotes, and it takes progression to Nasnasus to use Befouled improvised magic, how self-taught dabblers in Abyssal magic w/o contact with other Scelesti (which are supposed to be far from rare) are supposed to become both?

    How saddening and infuriating even the most enlightened and mentally/spiritually advanced supernatural offshoot of mankind has not yet learned the lesson in millennia about the pettiness, stupidity, and (self-)destructive nature of demonization of knowledge, guilt by association, and moral panic. Especially given the utter, overwhelming futility of pursuing willful ignorance for a supernatural splat whose defining psych trait is obsessive curiosity. Then again, their mundane cousins have not yet really learnt the equally poignant and inescapable lesson in millennia that prohibition of pleasurable...

    This is most interesting and exciting, and I do so hope a properly developed version of this material gets published sooner rather than later, optimally in some supplement that can get the PoD treatment, but in a pinch even a PDF update of LHP would do. This revision makes me wonder, in 1ed Qliphoth were the sad fate of an Archmage that really screwed up Imperial magic, and so fairly rare. By these new rules it seems any 'ordinary' Nasnasi-and-up mage that overindulges in use of Abyssal magic and fills up their Joining meter can become one, so they ought to be rather more frequent than before....

    started a topic Dark Eras Companion Nightmares

    Dark Eras Companion Nightmares

    As I read my way through Dark Ages Companion (great book), I got to wonder which of the new Nightmares in the Reconstruction chapter could be used by Beast characters in other historical periods. I reasoned out that to count as a 'universal' Nightmare any Beast can freely develop, the fear it is based upon should be widespread in the human population; otherwise I suppose at least some kind of sustained contact with a subject with that kind of experience should be necessary, similar to the way Family Ties with appropriate supernatural breeds are required to develop Nightmares based on supernatural...
