  • That would also probably tip off the targets that they were being tracked "covertly". You don't put a radiothermal kick me sign on someone - not that they'd probably have access to it if they're just keeping to mortal-compatible radiotracers - if you want them to continue on unaware that you are watching them....

  • A Po shouldn't be a Shadow, though. None of those non-Stygian paradigms should be lining up cleanly with the Jungian psychological trip that forms the Stygian standard, unless you rewrite the setting to remove those differences and just go with the Jungian psychological afterlife.

  • If you're being a stickler for actual differences between a Vigor Soul and a Jungian Shadow, that might not work out so well. Broadly speaking, the systems differ in that the Po should theoretically be a mass of all of a Wraith's Passions, Shadow or otherwise, while the Hun covers the Fetters. You can ignore this, of course, but then, you aren't really using the cosmological concepts, so you might as well just use the Jungian terms and give them an Angst rating in place of Po....

  • There was that stipulation about Garou willingly giving up their lives to avoid the Wyrm taint (which would likely be from Garou who are following the Suffer Not the People to Tend Thy Sickness tenet to an extreme), but given that the knowledge of the RoSR is usually kept by thoroughly unsavory folk and the rite has such a justifiably terrible reputation, it's an unlikely occurrence....

  • There's that one rite in CoG Revised to turn non-Kin into Kin, but that's CoG Revised and its setting-undermining material for you. There's also a way for normal humans to produce Garou, in the form of that one Apis Gift that ups the chances of a child being born a changer; when Garou use it (on the off, very rare chance that they know a secret from dead Fera that their ancestors personally killed), they can only up the chances of Garou birth, but that's what they're likely going for.

  • It'd probably be a relatively low-risk, low power kind of radiotracer as used in nuclear medicine. Mortal authorities would be too likely to take notice of something out of the ordinary, otherwise, and if there's anything the cam doesn't want, it would be the kind of attention that potential nuclear terrorism investigations would garner....

  • RE: No Dreaming in Asia -

    The Dreaming is actually mentioned in WoD: Tokyo and touched upon as a thing that does exist there, with a two-way interaction. There's some kind of Gloam-like entity around Mt. Fuji that coughs up mystical forecasts that the Hungry Dead keep in contact with. I have no idea why or how this came to be, but it does stand in direct contradiction to the above note, even if no Changelings are involved with it directly. There's also a Japanese-American troll who works as a docent in the same book.

    Nothing about Aokigahara, though, which is intensely...

    If you're going with the option below, any kind of hedge sorcerer would definitely fly. Nothing specifically against them to begin with, anyway.



    They probably wouldn't lose the Beast if you worked things out that way. It would just get turned into Rage.



    No, that's one line in the sand that I won't budge on. Resonance is not sufficient to encapsulate an internal Gaian awakening (it's holistic, not just a flavor of Quint), and the entire Purple Paradigm is antithetical to everything in W:tA, so I would still make that a no-go....

    Though the text isn't always clear about it, the kami seem to differ in that, rather than being possessed, they're internally awakened to spiritual power. This can be flat-out incompatible with how some other splat spotlights work, and mages in particular seem like they would be a binary in this category.

  • The World of Warcraft is welcome to him, but I'd prefer to not try to feed conspiracy theories like that, particularly when it comes to former presidents not living in reality.



    It's not really doable to escape like that in Werewolf. Even if you polish off the serial numbers, the existential environmental and social issues are still there, looming on the horizon and spitting out banes in addition to their real world effects. Meanwhile, a good-sized cross-section of characters are born to endangered species, sometimes incredibly endangered species, and would realistically...

  • Not only can Kin not be Imbued, but depending on how you interpret the wording of relatives of shapeshifters not being able to be Imbued, no close blood relative is going to be getting tapped by the Messengers, even if they aren't Kinfolk.

  • Rage already always had a cost, and it was also possible to lose it, so no change necessary, there (well, maybe to dial back the concept of Thrall of the Wyrm, which didn't quite exist in 1e). Gnosis has its price in the time and effort required to maintain it (nowhere near as easy as just knocking over a human and draining their blood). Most of what's frightening about being a werewolf involves doing things that people relate to, but to frightening levels, so there's no reason for them to be out of touch like with low Humanity vampires, either. When they get hit hard and heal back, it hurts,...

  • It was unpolished, perhaps, and the ST section could have been more directed, but the concepts that it introduced were interesting, and the raw feeling of it helped in some places. It's also one of the few books published post-core that presents the Triat as possibly being greater than Gaia, though for some reason, few people who are quick to bring that seldom-used alternative up seek to cite the Wyldbook as a source for anything....

  • That cuts close to barring Pentex from being a thing, since it consists of barely-concealed, more or less obvious references to existing businesses, one of which is an obvious stand-in for FOX News.

  • The TU's tendency to heap everyone outside their club into one giant mess should really have bitten them on the ass a lot more in the setting. Kind of tangential and general, but after necromancy, where else does the thread go?...
