  • None of which are available to SF0, since they're supposed to be utterly ignorant of everything by the design of their patrons.



    The prohibition against having both Glamour and Gnosis kind of makes figuring out how they'd work a bit tricky, though....

  • Have you considered taking a Hakken character for a whirl? It may be a dramatically different context, but each one does carry around a katana... and a wakizashi. They're bushi Garou. And badly named for a group that's supposed to be ancient beyond humanity, but it's hopefully revised to be a Glass Walkers-type deal..



    What I disagree with you on is continually bringing up the metaplot and Revised. Werewolf in Revised was flying high and more or less free from Vampire, so it was kind of a case of "personal horror? What personal horror?" Especially when...

  • In W20, it can have a number of different causes, none of which, though, is specifically named as fae blood.



    To relatively little effect compared to their relations (both types) with spirits.



    I was talking about trends over millennia. Sure it happens, but apparently not that often, and the legends of shark-people might not be about Rokea all the time. Just like that tengu skull that the director of Strike Force Zero has on his desk probably doesn't come from a W:tA Tengu. Else, it would be just a normal human or corvid skull, not one in...

    The former are a weird result of the breedbook author's preoccupations and a subsystem for extra-important secrets given to the Bastet that was ditched in Revised (where the Ceilican became the Hellcats) as if it had never existed, and then fished back up for W20. The latter are pretty much indistinguishable from any other tribe in most respects, except for Gifts that they learn that are named after fae. Don't tell them that you can learn "Gift of the Spriggan"; it freaks most of them out, for some reason, even more so than Balor's Gaze....

    Glamour and Gnosis don't mix. It's so we don't get Sam Haight 2: Terrible Crossover Boogaloo. Also, the Rokea outside the Beast Courts just outright haven't bred with humans with any frequency for ages, and in modern times, betweener-hunting slews tend to kill the ones they find.

    (9 times out of 10, it would probably result in a normal changer who can learn the Fianna Gift: Faerie Blood easily.)...

    "Hey Duke Dray, have you ever been to any freeholds in Maryland?"

  • Whereas it suggests to me that they're going on quests to reduce their permanent Banality, in the manner supported under Changeling's base rules. Other methods are going to be questionably effective and probably rather messy. Alternately, you "just" need a large group of people who honestly believe and have for hundreds or thousands of years. Good luck whipping that up on the fly with your Special K....

  • Mages playing this game might end up eating all of the consequences that they'd try to prevent, kind of like jumping in front of a bullet made of apathy. Which the Mage probably sucks up as several times that quantity in Paradox. Eliminating permanent Banality? That's two or more points of Permadox.

    As for reducing the ambient Banality, that's akin to bolstering the local Glamour in the area, and per the design of the game, it is quite purposefully not easy to do. There is no uniform, reliable way to produce Glamour. Else, it probably wouldn't be Glamour, really.

  • I thought it was because all signs point to no Impergium being possible. There was an awful lot of fatalistic waxing poetic about it in the first Red Talons tribebook, or perhaps another place, where the viewpoint character starts talking about how there is a new Impergium - the one that humans practice against wolves - and there's not much that the Garou can do about it.

    In order to actually start an Impergium, thus, you need to be in a position of strength. That is not the position in which the Garou and Fera find themselves, save possibly the Ratkin, and they don't do things the...

  • Offing a cub with too low a pedigree isn't just hard-hearted, but dumb beyond dumb, of the kind that the tribe probably stopped a long time ago. Not long enough ago, perhaps, but almost definitely not modern practice.

  • Werewolf's last metaplot events were geared up for the end years before Apocalypse came out, since Garou and Fera had experienced a complete cutoff of new births (lots of kin, no changers) and there was a certain message of "everyone who is going to participate in the Apocalypse has already been born."

    You'd have to roll back events considerably or outright ignore them. There's no clever way of doing it....

  • If you're going to protect your child from media, make sure to delay their going to 4chan and like sites until they can ignore the garbage signals on the internet and know what BS gets thrown around. That's probably much all the protection from media that you'll need to foster.



    If you're a Roman Catholic in Poland, you're almost certainly not oppressed, or at least, not because you're Roman Catholic. What it is that you're feeling is the crumbling of media exclusively catering to Roman Catholic mores. Not being catered to to the near-exclusion of everyone else is still...

  • 2e Ebby was so EEEEEVIL! that he made one for her when he killed her mother and threatened to kill her with firmin. That, or it was intended to be her desire to bring down the Realm for all the wrong reasons. None of those backgrounds was particularly good, and they kept misspelling Coadjutor (which is an actual word) as Coadjudicator (which is not)....

    It's just not safe to walk around with Stamina as the minned part of a min-max build if there are old Air Aspects about, is it? (^VVVVVVVV^)

    Well, as at least one article of difference, Mage posits that all places are one place and only the perception changes, where as I'm pretty sure that Changeling has the Dreaming as some place that's fundamentally not of this world, differing perceptions or otherwise. It's akin to trying to squeeze the other games through a wire filter and getting a mess on yourself from it....
