    Strengthening a Caern

    Okay, other than Caern building, is it possible to strengthen a caern after it has gotten weaker?

    Seems a moot point now (no pun intended). They discovered that the alpha was struggling to overcome being a drone.

    That's the thing. The PC's (all cliath) are frustrated by the lack of action. Of course, two of them didn't do anything when the alpha ordered them to do something but weren't punished for not doing it. (those characters haven't played since about a month after that) There have been techno agents beginning to swarm. A rank 4 glasswalker theurge was killed (he was the second in command) in an explosion investigating a microchip one of the fairies found. The sept has done nothing.

    All of this is part of the plot that something has happened due to the weaver's influence in the...

    Language Merit Question

    If you possess five Language Merits or more, then you’ve
    begun to understand the principles of language itself and can
    try to unravel languages you don’t already know (Intelligence
    + Enigmas, difficulty 7 or higher).

    Does this mean with a simple roll of intelligence and enigmas, a mage and learn garou? After only five minutes?

    replied to Pardigm Wording
    Just that the way the book is worded, for new players, they think those are full fledged paradigms and the only things that are allowed. And for many, they get frustrated when I try to draw out more information. Knowing how potentially OP a mage can be, I want that built in self limitation of their paradigm to be very well defined. But then they point to these "paradigms" and say, "you're just trying to have no one as powerful as your favorite npc's." Which, I could see as a problem if the plan in the story wasn't for those npc's to die so the pc's can take their p...

    Apathy of a Caern

    Okay, I put a caern on Strawberry Hill in Golden Gate Park. It is dedicated to Unicorn, the alpha is an old Rank 5 named Knows-When-to-Fight. Something has happened turning the three packs there completely apathetic. The caern is protected by....Garou, Kinfolk, mere mortals (police, security, etc.) So of course, apathy is there. The Caern is so well defended that when a Nexus Crawler was nearby, no one did anything.

    There is an incredibly powerful mage (and an army of changelings) in the area. The mage does not go around claiming the caerns or freeholds (he has one of his own)...

    If you botch a conscience roll, you lose a dot of conscience. What if you only have 1 dot?

    Pardigm Wording

    This has gotten more arguments and problems in my game than anything else. The words are so vague, the ideas so broad, that it doesn't help anyone. It's really sad when a book that has rules clearly meant to simplify something so oversimplify a concept that it becomes meaningless. I have to go all the back to revised, pulling out the dusty tomes and have people read that to understand what a paradigm is.

    I know what a paradigm is, but seriously, after reading this new definition I am so confused that I have to give my potential players a test to see if they know it. A lot of my...

    Treasures with Multiple Arts

    Sure the rules say one. But what about that suit of armor with Oakenshield and Hollystrike? Sure, that would be a 6 dot treasure if allowed, but why can't a treasure have more than one art in it? Aren't there plenty of legends of items that can do more than one thing?

    replied to Sharing Gnosis
    That does seem odd that a rite is required to do it when you can just do it to a spirit. I agree it should take some kind of special knowledge.....but yeah, the way Rage Across Egypt is written, it looks like someone said, "if they can just give it to spirits, they could just give it to each other thus mitigating the curse. We better do something about that."

    Sharing Gnosis

    I was just wondering if people allow this? Like, two werewolves, say an ahroun and a theurge. After the battle, ahroun is badly beaten and the theurge is running low on gnosis, could the ahroun, who still has all of his gnosis share it with the theurge? Garou can give it to spirits, garou are part spirit, so I see no reason why not. I wouldn't allow the sharing of rage, but gnosis? It seems to be a form of currency so I don't see why not. Perhaps having to do it in the umbra or a low gauntlet area?

    We ended up having her as an ambassador to one of the houses from the other.

  • A local dreamer/kinain has offered a job at a bookstore. He pays the troll who works there to do menial tasks, but expects the changeling to rush off on an adventure at a moment's notice without a word. Sometimes offering words of wisdom and quests to help the troll keep banality at bay.

    Dual Houses

    I thought this was a merit, where a changeling could be of two houses, much like dual nature for vampires. Getting the boons and flaws of both houses. And I was pretty sure it was a 4 or 5 point merit.

    Anyone else remember this, or would allow something like this?

    80. It had been tearing up the umbral side of an elementary school that the ananasi was attending (early metamorphosis).She was investigating and the garou were on a patrol of their territory.

    But then, I have the nexus crawler intend something then warp reality. Not warp reality and THEN declare what it's doing....

    replied to Using a Nexus Crawler
    Just tonight, JUST TONIGHT, I threw a NC at two cliath and a rank 1 ananasi. Expecting everyone to put in a couple of punches and then run like hell.

    That's what I expected.

    Then I expected total party wipe.

    One garou was taken down to injured, the other survived with a deep wound scar, and the ananasi was barely bruised by the end of the battle.

    How did this happen? A stupidly lucky bunch of rolls. Massively lucky. The NC failed everything except three attacks and only managed to damage because it turned part of its body into silver. And...

    Ananasi Inversions of Gift Ranks

    Something I noticed, Jump went from a rank 1 gift, to a rank 3 and Cling went from rank 3 to rank 1. Sure, I think Cling is much more in keeping with a spider, but so is jumping. Let's face it, spiders are much better jumpers than wolves. And definitely much better clingers than wolves. So...why in the hell is Cling a rank 1 garou gift (even if by a different name?) And why is jump so much harder for a spider now? These seem to be the only two that have switched or been altered. Honestly, I would have put them both at rank 1, and the garour have Great Leap at 3 and Cling at rank 3 as well....
