    Shadow lords

    I recently have finished reading the Shadow lords revised tribebook and I liked it. They resemble in many ways the scorpion clan from Legend of the 5 rings, they are extremely loyal to Gaia, but also capable if any means to achieve their goals (exitus acta provat), even dealing and using the wyrm. As characters, they could be fertile ground to certain kind of problematic players, though. Their tendency to manipulate everyone and using even their packs is a narrative highway to hell, only appropriate to mature players and storytellers. What are your experiences with this tribe? Have you played...

    Black Fox, I have been looking for a concrete example of a successful BG adopted by other tribe, but I have not found it. So, it could be entirely possible that I unconsciously have brought the idea to give coherence to the text. In the end, I understand from the text that the BG actively avoid the "trappings" of the money and the system to avoid being tainted by the Weaver (unlike the GW). This is said in the first chapter (page 15).

    If I understood of the book, the more heroic and successful young Bone Gnawers are sometimes adopted by other tribes, so the way is bidirectional, the BG accept the worst of all the tribes and they send back some promises to them. There is a merit of 1 point in the page 79 that equates to a point in resources (Struggling), the characters with this merit still maintain miserable jobs and achieve to pay a rent, but most of the tribe lives in the street without this benefit.

    About Rat and other totems, I think that the Rat accepts you as you are. It is said in the book that many BG of...

    I understand the focus in USA in the books, the By nights, the plots, the characters, the geography chapters in the tribebooks. However, I was talking about the patriotism and USA-centrism of the tribe (I refuse using "América" for a single country in the whole continent). Almost it seems that USA invented the freedom and the homelessness, it could even be a parody, I do not know.

    Anyway, the members of the tribe depicted in that book are permanent homeless without the will or the capacity to leave this kind of life. In the bone gnawers we found more "lunatics"...

  • My chosen tribes are:

    1 Silent striders: I like the mysterious solitaire wanderers and occultists.

    2 Bone gnawers: Playing the underdog, the freemen, the nomad, the highwaymen is appealing.

    3 Silver fangs: Fallen nobility, old sagas crippling under anachronic feudalism and propension to harano.

    4 Shadow lords: Cunning, astute schemers and políticos.

    5 Children of Gaia or Fianna: These tribes are the core of the game, in my opinion. The werewolf as a barbarian mystical shapeshifter and the werewolf as a defender of the nature and...

    Bone gnawers

    I have spent almost a year reading the tribe books and the kith books and now I am coming to an end, having only one more to read. The last one I have read is the bone gnawer revised tribe book, and I really like this tribe! Probably, one of the the top 3 tribes which I like and one the bests tribe books written, in my opinion.

    The only thing that bored me to exhaustion was the USA patriotism of the text, there are other countries out there, emerged and built under the idea of freedom and opportunities. And, besides, the outcast have existed since the beginning of times, I see no...
