  • I'd wager only something slightly off.



    That seems like you're proving my point.



    But they're apparently forced by some magical metabolic force to be nearly devoid of fat, according to CW. Which makes their regeneration sound kind of like it has a side effect from out of Thinner. Definitely something of horror, but probably not what they were going for.



    Did I not mention that I was talking about the kind of images that magazines snap and publish as ideals? Because I'm fairly certain that's exactly what I was talking...

  • Boxers probably wouldn't want to be as lean as some other athletes. They spend their days being pummeled, so they're going to need at least a minimum of fat to avoid even more serious injuries, much as with gladiators in antiquity (it turns out, a lot of the Roman arena affairs were between somewhat chunky people, on account of how it was harder to get deep hits on that body type).



    No, they end up doing the same thing that every other animal does when posed with a choice - sexual-based selection, based on status and attraction to features that may or may not display...

  • So you did read it, then?

    (Also, you missed Werewolf ramping up. Its metaplot was barely noticeable, if present at all, and the books existed to give groups more hooks and details to use. There was no definite date for the Apocalypse, and you could make whatever it you wanted, whenever, or just not use it and pick out some mechanical bits.)...

The new Pentex subsidiary of the RED Network is extremely timely, and everything about Endron never stopped being timely even after Enron folded, because greed permeates the petroleum industry like its product.....

  • That would be going back toward making fire too special, wouldn't it?



    D&D's Tou Mu has zero connection to the real life figure. She exists to be an inexplicably evil raid boss. And KotE made this vision of her canonical to the WoD. Apparently, they're really intent on riding that "this world is darker, especially the RPGs!" thing, because it would imply that D&D is an actual occult text in the WoD.



    I didn't; the quote-joke was sarcasm. I said that the change was hilarious in hindsight when you're reading through old books....

  • Barring the use of Master of Fire and similar Gifts, of course, that seems like a good way to go.

    Also, speaking of things from D&D, albeit even further back out than the 90s, the presentation of many of the Nuwisha totems in the breed book, as well as KotE's Yama Queen Tou Mu, are straight up right out of the AD&D 1e Deities and Demigods book. This even includes the typo in Chung Kuei's name. So hyping up fire isn't surprising, but reading old supplements hyping it up after Master of Fire has been a first rank Gift for longer than it hasn't existed is kind of a hoot. "Even...

  • That;s not a pro-feminist bias, it's a standpoint of not sitting there, wringing one's fingers and imagining "what could those sinister women who want to be treated as equals possibly be up to?" when the answer is "putting up with your shit, and it takes an awful lot of time out of their days." In this, your standpoint comes across as being as comically off-base as the Lecturer character from the 2004 musical remake of Reefer Madness.

  • Specifically, early bloomers are the result of rare manifestations of the Metamorph merit, as first articulated in Guardians of the Caerns, page 105. This Merit is a rather hefty one, and so it's about as far away from a guarantee as you can get. Such gifted cubs are outliers, and their existence is pretty much entirely owed to how Fengy was written the way that he was in the beginning of the line. This point is further supported by an item in the FAQ for the Revised Storyteller's Handbook on page 23....

  • You don't recall correctly. The Wyrm is likened to a major force of (un)nature, or in the case of the longtime Star Wars comparisons, the Dark Side of the Force. You don't beat that with a lightsaber and force pushes, you do it by laying the groundwork for everyone to change. Consider the recently re-released Okami; it has you go around and nurture the world on your way to righting wrongs. The Garou and Fera have to do more of this in order to lead the way to a path where they can confront the larger spirits of woe in the world. It weakens the hold of corruption and cuts the corrupt off from their...

  • You know, even cannibalism doesn't send you right down into the Wyrm immediately when you do it, but it's still not the standard practice of the Garou Nation nonetheless. There is, in fact, a tenet of the Litany against it. You will also note that there is also a tenet of the Litany that forbids abuse of those under the Garou, and while not as stringently enforced as the shibboleth against anthropophagy, well, just read the next paragraph in my response.

    (Also, which animals? Because they aren't all wired the same way.)



    Yeah, that last point is something...

  • Possibly not on that last one, since you could be trying to channel your monstrosity to better ends. We're not Batman even if we're playing Camazotz, and murdering a murderer isn't a guaranteed net wash because you killed someone. Play your cards right, and you could end up lowering the count significantly even without committing suicide.



    Violence is a quick solution that escalates the situation. Generally, it's the consequences that get you before anything like taint does.



    I don't trust your interpretation of "natural"...

  • The avatar explanation is only for Mage. Everything else just notes that Glamour is a competing power (as in Werewolf, and probably others), or not something that they can use.



    I wouldn't let trying to fake Arts and Realms be coincidental. That's like trying to fake Gifts - you're not Garou or Fera, so you shouldn't be able to do it unless it's one of the very low-powered ones that kin could conceivably learn, and it'd lock you into a fixed pattern of what rotes you can use based on what kin could likely know and use altogether, so a vast array of effects while trying...

  • And we know this, but the standpoint of "not all feminists are perfect moral actors, so the entire idea of feminism is void" is junk, and there's a vast gulf between "practices the tribe endorses" and forcing others to mate. The Black Furies are probably the tribe keenest to not do this, given that it's basically against their entire ethos and clashes with all of their typical totems.



    Also true, but so is the existence of an established old boys club in pretty much anything that makes money or has prestige. When computer programming became big business,...
