  • ...Ronin are defined as being outside the spirit pact that grants most of the benefits of the Garou Nation. How are they going to preserve any of the conveniences of the concordat if they give up that one, by which Garou can readily gain Gifts and get spirits to vet their status?

  • Urgh concussion grenades. A creation of thriller novels that try to super-embellish flashbangs beyond reasonable capability.

    As for the nuke header, that really depends on what its yield is, so I would answer with "yes, seriously." We already know from the Weird Science adventure in The Valkenburg Foundation that one metric ton of TNT does 30 dice of damage even if the event that would see it happen is more or less impossible*, so all that remains is to give an extrapolation for the blast wave. The heat and radiation, of course, are an entirely different matter, but we...

  • The fang dagger probably just uses normal knife stats.

  • I want to address this point, and the answer is actually, no, most vampires wield a lot of influence and, like the rich, do way more damage to the world than vampires do just on the basis of typically-greater wealth and power than the average person. This doesn't even get into how it takes something like ten humans to sustain one vampire, or how vampires tend to sustain injustices like economic disparity or racism so that they have a large supply of people upon which to prey. Also, when vampires screw up their Masquerade, it threatens the Veil by proximity, which may be a self-serving point,...

  • You are correct, can confirm, this is what the Dawnbook says. I think the most important takeaway is that he wasn't named for a bovine, and the "Too Perfect" sidebar in Sidereals 2e was running on a very different set of assumptions about the setting than what we got....

    Nonetheless, it's his nature to look and act that way. If it doesn't work for everyone, so be it. Plenty of fish in the Great Western Sea....

  • While it's probably not good for me to get into a discussion of 3e Lunars, the fact that Solar Charms are, by this point, really damned old might play into this discrepancy. It's been four years or so since the core dropped for backers, and there's been a change in the approach of writing Charms. Solars are defined by being incomparable in human endeavors, so it would stand to reason that they probably wouldn't lose out to Lunars in a "seduction arena" in any edition if that's a Solar's focus. As the parody Star Trek TNG twitter had it, "A delegation of alien hummingbirds secretly...

    In fact, Makarios in prior editions was incapable of giving anything away for free without bargaining, even if summoned and bound. The summoner had to beat the hell out of him and force him to cough up his wares in order to get something without going through Makarios's business channel, which limited what you could get from him to whatever he had on hand....

    Low word count doesn't rule out the ability to change something drastically. 2e massively changed the Ebon Dragon with just a capsule description.



    Then ignore the lineart from 2e and dig back to the description in GoD, which describes "a charming lad", not mentioning anything like a sneer or leering grin - it would have been in the original text there if that was the intent, because there was no fat in that chapter. The deceptive thing about Makarios's appearance is that he has rainbow yes and his hair is copper wire, and that people that see it tend to ignore...

    I suspect that it had to do more with the original reference for why it was a reagent for the fireball spell, as guano was often used as a source of saltpeter for pre-industrial gunpowder production.
