    replied to You Know What I Hate MK I
    Is the nature of economy and consumerism. If you have to charge for something that people can get it for free one must add some value to said thing.

    The restaurant charge for food because it gives either the convenience of choice/location/time, status eating there conveys, atmosphere or quality of food that my grandma lacks. If bethesda wants to charge me for mods then it better be of a superior quality than the mods i can get for free, or have a superior support for the ensuing bugs or something. Same for imageshack, they dont offer anything new with what they did. They just took...

    I can think on a few examples Kammerer is a good one. Imageshack is another good one. It used to be free but limiting (think 32 pics max) but if you need more you could pay the subscrition and have more space. Then they fuck up and said "you have to pay to upload ANY image, and unless you pay the ones you got are unavailable" so on one hand is ridiculous because i can just use FB/pinterest which is free, on the other taking my pictures hostage is a dick move and will sour me on the service of the page....

  • 1E How does Harvest (Pledges) merit work?

    Reading the other day the Corebook from 1st edition Changeling the lost i stumbled on this problem.

    How Harvest (Pledge) merit works?

    On the book says


    Seems straight forward enough, a bonus dice to the rolls, however unlike the rest of the harvesting methods, pledges dont have a roll. It all depends on the agreement being made.



    So how then Harvest (Pledge) works if there is no dicepool to boost? Does it means that if my character with "Harvest (Pledge): 5" makes a pledge to receive 1 glamour per month he would receive...

  • A children of Gaia tribebook that doesnt suck. It almost write itself with the setup of a sort of "court martial" for the idiot POV pack from the revised Tribebook.

    In which an elder Philodox children of Gaian Garou has to determine if they will strip them on their rank and deed name (maybe even kick them out of the tribe) and proceed to grab any conception the original book threw at them and explain how "no, that not how our tribe work you idiots"...

  • So i am looking at the merit Harvest.

    Which gives you a bonus dice equal to its rating for a form of getting glamour. Whoever how does that applies to pledges? (which is one of the examples of the merit) as they dont have a dicepool.

  • Human souls, what are they good for?

    Hello, so in my Forsaken game the elodoth of the party died but his player made a Cahalith.

    He used all his XP to buy both Lunar gifts up to 5 (the normal one and the Screaming moon one) so the level 5 of the gift confuses me:

    Soul Shriek, when successful, give Uratha and Spirits the "Essence Overload" Condition but to humans (an animals) it removes their souls.

    Now lets assume a setting without crossovers (so no, mages or any other splat) what are souls good for to a Uratha? Bargaining chip is iffy because it would require to explain to the victim...

    Was that how it went though? I mean i remember that the whole "peter vs flash" was buried before Gwen Stacy death. Then he became a supporting character for peter for many years and he went on the alcoholism storyline.

    But then one more day happened and he lost his legs on Irak in the new continuity but i dont remember if the alcoholism was part of the new continuity.

    Regardless i do think he is popular or at least Marvel think he is as he got the Blue Beetle treatment of being shove in everything for a while.

    I think they were aiming to make themselves...

    Incidentally this is a miracle honestly, i wanna like Spider Gwen but the pacing is awful is marvel problem in a microcosm. There is no breathing room, there is a frantic plotline (event) after frantic plotline (event).

    I dont even know what they are going for. Okay Gwen still have her secret identity from her love ones cliche, okay trite but serviceable but them they never do anything with it. Her band, the mary janes, fall through the wayside from all the attention the comic give it and Gwen┬┤s life when it isnt introducing another alternative version of popular 616 character or...

  • Why there arent vampires in the city no more? *ba dum dish*

    Mages believe there is an underground market of one or more melancholy carnival....iers in the city trading destinies or good luck charms for a gruesome price. The truth is more complex, a summoning of fate (i dont remember then name of the fate summonings) a huge one twist destinies to those that a follow a seeminly random path in the city (pattern becomes more clear when one look at the colonial map of the city.

    A balance must be kept so as a good destiny is granted another horrible fate is handed. But is...

  • YMMV, i find the later examples entirely forced. Makes me, as player, feel that i cant do anything without having long unintended derails of plot even when i plan for stuff (say, finding a desolated spot, make it look like a natural accident, etc)

    Gotcha moments is a good way to put it, Monkey paw Dming is basically turning most of the character actions into Gotcha! moments.

    Which seems something mage is counting on to function to a higher degree than others. As another poster put it more eloquently that as the monstrosity of mage is informed by us, we are given the tools...

  • Again different Dming styles, i would never run an scenario like that one. Unless is really REALLY something that had tons of build up and the players had miss all the chances to avoid the situation in one way or another.




    In the case of the NPC, i would remind the player of the history between them (the NPCS) to see if he gonna think about devicing a countermeasure against the NPC. In case of PVP there is nothing i, as a DM, can or should do.



    Is a thin line difficult to express it without example so i am gonna use one i happen to experience...

  • But thats why i said "This point + a style of GMing which isnt about finding unintended consequences to most of the PCs action and/or no engineering though choices or no-total-win scenarios might result in not happening unless the Players go looking for them."

    If i said to the player, "hey, you gonna mess things up if you do A. And they still do A." then thats not monkey paw, that just the player making a descision for his character....

  • Yet many rolls are Resolve + Composure. And remaining in control and unflustered despite external/internal pressure is similar to continue on task despite distractions. I am saying cut the middle man and just make it "roll Willpower"



    Why? I am suggesting removing the "social, physical, mental" differentiation along with its priority system in chargen. Combat seems more relevant anyway so why invent more attributes that arent needed just because symmetry....
