  • Are they? There are five auspices, and three of them involve weird swerves and side-angles from the straightforward application of extreme violence. Vague cultural allusion powers in tribe Gifts are also kind of a wide field to operate; who would have expected that the "werewolves" you saw were just phantoms summoned for the express purpose of luring you out, that a wolf might turn into an orca, or that you might end up cursed to attract vindictive ghosts?...

    Oh, so we want to bring the manga into this? It matters as a source in this shot for shot remake of the 1995 animated feature, only with live action and all of its story jumbled up to hell and back?...

    Maybe the movie should have cast a Japanese actress and used CG to make her look like ScarJo, then. As it stands, with how it was produced, that claim is so much mouth noise....

  • Imbued have never been in a situation where they have a numbers advantage. Or any idea of the big picture, unless they're hermits. They also tend to view the "pro-humanity" technocracy as monsters.



    Using Drones is going to lead to friction with hunters, especially Imbued, because the Weaver-fomori are going to trip the Monstervision of the chosen. They will attack them and either wipe out the noncombat drones or get torn to pieces by the combat drones. Any non-Imbued hunters with True Faith are going to be in a similar predicament, though they can probably...

  • Wasn't the word of dev that Zapathasura was basically in a protracted hunger frenzy and didn't have the presence of mind to use any reality bending powers?

    I'd say it's probably a tie between Vicissitude and Obtenebration. I can't be entirely sure which one comes on top of the heap.

  • The "only in cutscene" clause probably wouldn't hold if the characters made an appearance in a different play genre - say, a large scale brawler a la Dynasty Warriors instead of in a fighter with a mostly static 2.5D background. Then cities would know the unbridled fury of the Satsui no Hadou!

    Not just slam-porting the Exalted of old in is likely because of a similar issue, along with issues that crept up during the presentation of higher-Essence play - the fight would be really one-sided. During the height of 2e, Solars, Abyssals, and Infernals could double-break their...

  • Humans might believe in something a bit more. I don't know if it would pan out well for mages, though; it might cause a cosmic snap that changes everyone back into the DA:M system, precluding them from working with each other. Assuming, of course, the crossover event doesn't just ignore most of the matter of Consensus altogether. It's not like Mage even pays that much attention to it, since Reality Zones are getting to be a thing and it has to contort itself to explain why other magical beings don't experience Paradox, the latest explanation being Mythic Threads (TM).

  • Characters in SF are, in a sense, cultivators from a lower power setting, but lower only in comparison with something like Zu Warriors, and I'm not even sure of that, because some of the higher tier characters sandbag something fierce. Gouki/Akuma, for example is explicitly that character while holding back, with Shin Akuma/Gouki being a broken, unfair SNK boss fight with a being that can do the parting of the Red Sea action with a punch (Ryu can do something similar, but it's only a pretty wide river/waterfall with a hadoken)....

  • It was a single art piece in Masters of Jade, where the Lunar was unconcerned with concealing herself, and an alternate single piece in the EX3 core, where the Lunar is sneaking away from a Solar who doesn't know what the hell happened. Only in MoJ is the incident explained in context (an attempt to disrupt the Solar baker's burgeoning business relationship with the Guild).

  • Side note for W:tA: All the better that the Three Brothers are getting name changes. So long, inherent connection to racist conspiracy theory!

  • I misspelled Tamas Khan, but otherwise, check page 41, second to last paragraph before the Jackal Tribe entry. In contrast, Tamuz was said to have recruited from everywhere but the Jackal Tribes, and if the Delzahn were intended on being a part of his schtick, then his writeup is curiously empty of any stated connection....

  • Tamuz was also distinct from Tomas Khan, the Lunar who was big into the Delzahn. Then 2e conflated them, to terrible, terrible results....

  • I'd imagine that Raksi would be your best bet to increase Dragon-Blooded Breading. No matter the edition, she has likely researched it extensively.

  • Due to the differing cosmological assumptions of W:tA and M:tA, not only will Garou and VEs not likely be in the same world, they might not even be in the same potential reality. The only VEs that are likely to show up are the Earth Frontiers Division that's big into ocean exploration and also being taken for a bit of a ride by Pentex, who furnishes them with "construct" guards to escort their missions. Said guards, being in fact fomori, are likely to attract a lot of the attention that the VEs probably wouldn't want.

  • MET handled things really differently from tabletop, so it's going to seem odd no matter what.

  • That depends on how you define clades, and also you have the Venn diagram relationship backward. All birds were dinosaurs, but not all dinosaurs were birds.
