  • I've always kind of imagined the Salubri wanting to move forward as a bloodline (without Saulot in the picture, who is off doing his own thing depending on which iteration of the character you want to believe) and maybe they're coming to terms with their change in status, the way the world has evolved (both for mortals and vampires) and how they want to go ahead in it. There's alot of potential for contrast in that that might hearken back to the previous editions - that struggle for goodness, inner peace and/or redemption vs the realities of their condition, the world they find themselves...

  • I'd be interested in a Nephilim supplement because:

    a.) I thought the Lucifuge concept was really interesting in Hunter the Vigil and having a a group of awakened beings who fit a similar mold (but not necessarily all hunters) would be interesting.

    b.) It would be interesting to see how one rationalized Nephilim compared to other awakened beings. Are they like the Imbued (or old pseudo-Exalted types like the Wan Kuei) or are they perhaps variations on the undead and/or mortal/spirit analogues we have like Garou, Changelings, and the like? Or do they manifest as something...

  • Curse is actually very interesting but it does have distinct thematic differences from Resurrection and the previous supplements. I don't think they're inconsistent so much as different approaches to a similar topic (quasi mortal or half-undead immortals unlike all the others). Resurrection and the previous supplements had broached the idea of each culture/country having their own approach to this sort of 'immortality' and there's no reason Curse couldn't be another (equally major) variation on immortality. If anything I feel like one of Resurrection's flaws was to try to shoehorn the previous...

  • You can have 'conflicts' with something and still have it exist as a valid philosophical or religious concept as long as there are people who exist to believe or practice that iteration. I mean look at how many different sects and creeds of various religions can proliferate (same broad idea with very different approaches to achieving the goal) and you find even more of that in philosophy and ideology. So it strikes me that 'Golconda' can be interpreted in many different ways, by different vampires. Especially given how muddled and confused their own mythology can be at times.

  • Honestly I feel like the mummies (esp the Amenti) had more in common with DtF's Demons than Changelings but there are parallels to both in the sense there is always a corporeal and a spiritual element to most WoD creatures (or at least the ones that make up the various systems) - they just manifest/interact in different ways....

  • Diablerie as depicted can be kinda weird sometimes when it comes to drop in generation or gaining power. I mean we know incomplete Diablerie is a thing (you can gain power from draining the vitae even if you don't absorb the soul - Augustus Giovanni is proof of that) and you have stuff like 'Higher generation vampire drinks blood of lower generation vampire' and also gaining a decrease in generation (like in Giovanni Chronicles 3)

    It does seem rather 'in character' that no matter what Gratiano may claim or others perceive he still ends up failing to achieve that goal and be far...

  • Mister_Dunpeal
    replied to Barrel of black powder
    This is the one question that needs answering to start since it will determine how much *boom* you can get. Black Powder is a low explosive so its not as good as TNT (nor as gunpowder) but it can still be effective. The 'relative effectiveness factor' (effectiveness of a explosive relative to TNT) for Black powder listed on Wikipedia is listed as 0.55 REF but it could vary (black powder IIRC had about 1/3 the energy of smokeless powder, for example)

    REF isn't a perfect indicator but like if you had a 100 kg barrel (And most of that was black powder, say 80% of the weight is the...

  • One thing to consider with the .22LR to the head (or in general) is that fairly inelastic tissue (and the brain is included in this, as well as the liver) is more susceptible to temporary cavitation than more elastic tissues (meat or muscle) and so shots to the head could potentially be more 'explosive' (assuming the youtube video was going for accuracy with that - youtube gun videos are notorious for being rather unscientific however.) .22LR is highly susceptible (And good) at ricocheting inside a body (glancing off bone) because of its low velocity (less chance of over-penetration) and that...
