  • The key is to never get into a fair fist fight with the Garou if you can help it. You just won't win that unless you have a disproportionate XP advantage. What you need is Better Bullshit. My recommendation would be either exploiting Path of Spirit Manipulation to make some rule-bending, cheat-y Fetishes to help you make the fight unfair, and/or using Influences to outsource the fighting to your mortal and institutional proxies....

  • No. They were just a Caitiff with an odd werewolf-y discipline and werewolf-y flaws. Basically a shadow of what they might have been....

  • The Keepers. It deals with human evils that remind us however dark a world we imagine for our games it will never be as dark as the world we're actually living in.

    On a lighter note both Ash vs The Evil Dead and John Dies At The End give us a take on the Vigil as gruesome farce.

    While I don't personally care for it as a series, the Conjuring franchise has in it a solid Hunter framework....

  • I think it depends on the Seeking and the ST running it. I've had really fun really interesting Seekings and I've had godawful nonsensical Seekings. Not everyone is going to conceptualize a Seeking or its lessons the same way. One person sees meaningful and subtle symbolism, another sees shallow and pretentious bullshit....

  • I actually played pretty much this exact concept once, a pre-change Garou caught in a Sabbat mass embrace. He nearly died because even unchanged the embrace didn't want to take, and by the time he clawed his way out of the earth the pack had already taken their shovel heads and left the rest for dead. The result was a Caitiff who happened to have Protean with the flaws Lunacy and Vulnerable to Silver....

  • My longest running Promethean was very into Mercurius, and its a Refinement I retain a lot of love for. I'll admit it took me a long time to really "get" Stannum, but once I did it became one of my favorites. The two I've always wanted to do more with but have never really gotten the chance to are Argentum and Cobalus....

    I'm interested to see how "Gaining or bestowing power from an obviously monstrous source" is going to interact with Endowments.

  • This is a playlist I put together for one long running character. Jason, a Malkavian and all-purpose criminal who'd spent most of his life and unlife running away from his upbringing in a cult.

    Ozzy Osbourne - Walk on Water (demo)
    The Handsome Family - Far From Any Road
    Electric Wizard - Vinum Sabbathi
    The Hat - The Angry River
    Sonata Arctica - Replica
    Natalia Kills - Devils Don't Fly...

  • Guys... It's been thirteen damn years. Literally the entire time I've been playing White Wolf. I got into these games in the exact moment the transition was occurring and all the controversy that surrounded it. Once upon a time I loved talking shit on and complaining about the existence of Requiem, nowadays I spend a lot of time convincing people to actually try Requiem.

    They're both fine, guys. Can't we just enjoy playing games? I want to play games....

    replied to Pure Breed Problem
    The only thing that tends to bug me about Pure Breed (okay not the only thing but that's getting into a discussion outside the narrow mechanical and roleplaying parameters of the topic) is when players portray PCs of tribes that can't take Pure Breed but duck around it by being adoptees from other tribes that have it and take high levels of it anyway. Its not something I'd allow as an ST (at least not as often as I've seen it happen) but its apparently something a lot do....

    I recently played a drop-in D&D game at a local game store where at least three of the participants, including the DM, were under 18. While this made me feel incredibly old I was also glad to see that even kids who have grown up with current gen vidya games and mobile dervices still see an attraction in unplugged pen-and-paper roleplaying.

    The main problem with the geek chic tables isn't just their expense but their impracticality. All their features are pretty nifty... for doing one particular thing. They aren't very versatile on top of being bulky. Even the gamers I know who make six figures or more, including some with dedicated gaming rooms, haven't invested in one mostly because they don't have the space to devote to that kind of table. Not when a "regular" table with better dimensions will do just fine and can also be used for other things....

  • Just grabbing off the shelf in my library for now, will expand this list as I find more titles.

    Rise of the Last Imperials

    God's Chinese Son: The Taiping Heavenly Kingdom of Hong Xiuquan by Jonathan D. Spence: I could go on and on about the Taiping Rebellion. Its an understudied but incredibly important period, not only for understanding the decline and eventual collapse of the Qing, but also in terms of repercussions felt through Chinese history to the modern day and in terms of the changing world of the nineteenth century more broadly. If I go into any more detail I...

  • For me its probably still Demons. I just don't really get what their purpose was supposed to be. I find their aesthetic to be very edge-lord-y (and I say this as a Vampire fan), and I find their approach to lore, cosmology, and metaplot to somehow be even more condescending and douchey than Mages (which set a high bar).
