    Especially if the newer generations that you're likely to be courting with this new version likely don't have those things in their real life human lives, or at least, not like people used to in the US. Families? Houses? The pittance from even overwork can't cover those like they did in the 90s. Those likely aren't going to be the same anchors in the minds of players that Justin seems to think that they will be. It feels like there's going to be a much stronger impetus in the new PCs to face the Garou Nation - such as it is - and walk backwards to the Get.

    Why not just a pre-defined pack of equipment? Your choice of a set!

    And it started off so promising... just change a few names and swap out some stuff...
    But then it moved into that "putting on clown makeup and wig" meme....

    "No! The Get are going too far by not cowering in their caerns! They're not what you should be doing!"
    "Ha ha ha Fenrir go GRRRRRRR!"



    To say the least....

    More to the point, what's with the poster who claimed that Fenris was kin to the Wyrm? I... do not recall that ever being a thing. Is this a prior edition tribebook issue? Because I thought that the first GoF TB got basically thrown in the trash, lore-wise. Goes double for anything that's tapping into real-life lore about Fenrisulfr, because Revised set up an anti-mythology where just about everything that that Norse thought was wrong....

    It got quiet for a while - too quiet for the good of anyone nearby, because the Garou of Ye Oldenn Dayes thought that BSDs were a joke and the Ceilican eventually started holding rites rather close by, until they ended up getting chased down and either killed or thrown into said pit, coming out as Hellcats. At that point, of course, it was pretty much Spook Central, but for banes.

  • The game didn't need to be personal horror, or to scale back. In fact, it is better without those approaches. Vampire's horror works well for vampire but not the other games, and its focus, likewise. Parawolf really needs to let the other games be other games, and dispense with this "One WoD" nonsense. It was an empty promise from day one and we all knew it.



    I think that the implications don't change....

    For information that's 25 years old, the SF houses being Mr. Worldwide is perplexingly obscure. Then again, even someone who was writing the original SF tribebook apparently forgot about those details by the time the sample characters were written. Or perhaps they written by someone else, before the houses were finalized; WW has had a tendency to not get freelancers on the same page together (MoEP: Infernals!) as well as not always writing parts of the book in order. Hence why, in spite of being a part of House Blood Red Crest, the sample Crinos-born Philodox character's Vietnamese heritage is...

    Playing a Silver Fang isn't supposed to just be playing a royal who happens to be a werewolf, but rather like being Aragorn. Which includes the arc where no one knows that he's a king and everyone just calls him Strider.



    Garou don't have human-style armies. They'll certainly take pages from them if they can use styles of management, command, and conflict, like how Golgol Fangs-First set up the Amazon War, but they've never been truly populous (in the olden days, they were more likely to live as wolves than humans, which means vast territories to support wolves going...

    I mean, it's not really their philosophy. More like their lament that they can't impose the Impergium on humanity, but humanity is basically imposing it on them and on wolves....

    "I know you didn't like the unfounded exuberance for what the creative lead thought were new ideas back in 2016 but... have you considered a creative lead who has a few new ideas but still didn't read the material in-depth enough to reclaim it having unfounded exuberance for the project in 2022?"

    From the 2e player's guide, on taint:

    "It doesn't mean that the devil made you do it. It means that you did it... and the devil noticed."

    IIRC, Exalted 1e was also not fully put together when they started doing glossary drops around late 2000/early 2001, and that was no more than an eight-month leadup to release (August 2001, slightly sooner for the collector's edition). It may just be a habitual old WW thing....

  • I wouldn't quite describe W:tA as furry, but only because I usually associate that with a more neutral merging of human and whatever. Garou and Fera have a strong purpose-biased bent to what their "were-forms" are for, which results in things like wolves having among the largest and strongest such forms in spite of wolves being rather small, or Mokole not actually having a strict merging of just two forms, and of course, Ananasi just disrespect the system with every form that isn't human.



    If they're copying Forsaken as rampantly as they have been, they might...
