  • Something i like but i feel that doesn't have a counter part in Requiem is the Sabbat. The Sabbat is many things so i am specifically referring to the sabbat as the shovel heads disposable goons aspect.

    While games about the loss of humanity and politics is good, sometimes the games needs to cut loose and let the PC who has 2 to 3 physical disciplines on 5 to go town and have fun with little consequences. Also they serve as good shake up for the status quo when X elder/ancillae can die in a Sabbat raid. Sometime that i think is emulated but thoroughly failed in execution by the s...

    Well, i get it. "Woe is me, a monster i become" is not for everyone. Personally i never like to deal with human family/friends/secret identity when i play and i make that clear to the DM before the game starts.

    And if the OP wants to play that, then with a little tweaking character concept 3 could work:

    "Rich occult nut and was embraced by one of the Covenants. After he was embraced he wound up going into a frenzy and killing his parents and thus now it indebted to the covenant to make it look like an accident. Now he got his parent inheritance which its...

    Well, personally i wouldnt allow this concepts in my games because they dont sound like real people. The first one is this surgeon who happens to have fame but also a heart of gold, but also a ton of enemies. And his embrace and disappearance also is sorta of a masquerade breach. So game starts and as DM i already have to push all this issues on the forefront.

    The second one is passable though i really do doubt that plastic surgeons are that popular to be known by name with billboards but whatever, the only problem i can see really is that maybe the DM dont wants to deal with your...

  • But if you dont like the way the some merits are written and prefer the previous version, and would have to check each one of them individually and make a ruling. Dont like the way the game make rules for things you believe shouldnt have. Dont like the Door system and neither the aspiration system. Instead of removing all of that you could cut the middle man and just play NWoD.

    Me personally, i prefer the more specific mechanical effects for merits, i prefer Chrods but i can see why one could prefer NWoDs if one preffers a more improv style to DM.



    I am thinking...

  • Like i said, some players arent into that kind of gameplay. They want to sit down and for the player to throw situations at them and they deal with it. Some are paralyzed by choice, other just cant think outside of a gamist perspective of "how to win" and other just dont like that meta aspect and prefer to be all IC (meaning affecting the narrative is metagaming to them).

    As you said, normally one could try to move the aspirations towards the ongoing situations but other times say at the start of a new "Chapter" (when the PC think of new aspirations) on the campaign...

  • Yesterday i had my usual weekly Forsaken game in which one of my players constantly complains on Chrod in favor of NWoD and might as well make my weekly annoyance into something useful and he does bring a couple of good points:

    Point #1: Putting mechanic to things that shouldn't have mechanics. For example, interdisciplinary specialty allows you to use your medicine specialty of say, anatomy, when doing targeting attacks.

    In NWoD this doesn't exist, i think, but in a game with reasonable people a player can say to the DM "hey look, i got a specialization to anatomy,...

  • I mean is still better than the utter nuttered pledge system from the 2ed previews.

    That said, pledges can be OP because in WoD Merits are better in most cases than raw skill/attributes.

    As other people have point out before examples of it, the thing you gotta remember is that the DM has to keep in mind the rules for pledges and he has to check all pledges before they are made and like broken builds forbids some of them no matter the raw.

    I agree on Iceman though but i also find it funny that iceman coming out was another example of Jean Grey being basically a female red head killgrave. I read through the all new different super special X-men and i keep wondering, did anyone really miss Jean Grey?

    Post dead jean grey were some of the best stories for the X-men and it allowed cyclops to grow as a character and gave a lot more spotlight to emma frost. And kinda, but not totally remove the phoenix for a long while. But a i get it, phoenix saga and nostalgia googles when the character appeared in her younger form....but...

  • Personally i dont see nothing wrong with this and even force PCs to start without tribe and get one in character. Mainly because the tribes are descriptive at best, at the end of the day the only thing a tribe defines is "which prey you will get a bonus hunting" and a ban. Everything else depends on the interpretation of the DM.

    You can read all the 1st ed books on the Storm lords and come to a table expecting them to be just like that and then the DM can either interpret them differently in accidental way or purposely making "this" local storm lords do things...

  • True both are similar to the Elodoth ability, speaking of which this "Eclipse (Honor)" gift, would send the target into soft or hard rage?...

  • Doesnt this steps on the Elodoth auspice ability? And as a side note, this gift aside whats the use of a flayed moon? In forsaken 1st they give you the tainted moon gifts but now they seem kinda pointless....

  • I think you are looking at this the wrong way, is not how important you are to buck the trend but how much they hate your Sire to the point they would consider inflicting the worse punishment possible by doctrine.

    If i had a PC to do this i will frame the sire, would either try to get some of his blood and blood bond first stage the higher up on both the Carthians and Lancea Sanctum. Or target the most "sacred" thing of the Carthians and Lancea to defile them. The main powers and the main opponents of public diablere and them expose his "conspiracy" and be the...
