  • Most of the mechanics of Mage don't match the fluff. For example, Hard Suits are supposed to be able to solo a nest of vampires with ease. Unfortunately, the armor mechanics and monster stats in WoD are awful and being outnumber punishes you twice for some reason, so that'd never happen. So in fluff, a Hit Mark would beat the ever living crap out of a werewolf. In mechanics, it's a toss up because who is surprising whom is the biggest thing that matters in WoD combat.
    Personally, I tend to buff the ever living crap Countermagick and armor so it's not useless and make Hit Marks akin to actual...
