  • Brawl is used for tackles and grapples, and they're a lot better tactically than just punching fools. The strategy of Grab'n Bite is a strength thing (well, the bite is dex for some absurd reason, but that's easily houseruled, and it doesn't matter much when you've got someone in your arms and there's no escaping them). When you spend a blood for potence auto-successes on your grab roll, it's an auto win much of the time, and it doesn't matter how many extra actions someone's got loaded up if they cannot escape.
    Carry over is a -maybe- , strength is certain....

  • If we don't account for celerity being broke, Dex isn't really that powerful. Strength is better for brawl, and in a non-murderfest game most physical confrontations are going to be done with brawl. Strength is also more-often paired with athletics. For firearms, resources, allies, retainers, mob, cult and so on are better stats to have than Dex; you can make up for lack of dex with sheer volume of fire, or you can snipe and add perception. Most gunfights should really end on the first turn where you have a gun out and they don't or they don't see you shooting. It's only melee where I think Dex...

    You did write this, but Ok, yeah, point taken; the myths and the society that manufactured them don't equate. I mean, Loki was trans, and everybody hated him for it.

    Look, for me at least, part of the enjoyment from werewolf is the Rage, the cathartic, eternal fight against a world filled with injustices. The more challenging and uphill the battle, the better. Lots of people want happy resolutions to such settings, but applying them robs the setting of it's conflict and intrigue. People enjoy challenge, and tribes are meant to be exclusive, not inclusive. Werewolves are elitists...

    Right, yeah, I suppose the Greeks before the archaic period were better towards women. Pitty such little writing exists for them... Can you find a source to suggest they were genderfluid? And if they were accepting of other genders can you also ascertain that a transwoman would be fully accepted as a woman, because what I'm reading(of later periods) would suggest that transmen still couldn't get into politics, even in those less sexist cities like Sparta. I'd love to be proven wrong and find some concrete proof of minoans being very liberal with gender, but nobody can read linear B, and I'm...

    Do we have updated monetary values? I just see loose descriptions of quality-of-life kinda thing.
    You should generally go with -sounds about right- , perhaps look into citations when something's cheaper or more expensive than someone thinks it is.

    I imagine each dot is a multiple of the last, so, assuming a relatively wealthy nation with wealth disparity but not a state of paupers and billionaires (say Australia, France, Poland, Japan, Taiwan) if one-dot of resources is minimum wage and a person owns "10" , two dots of resources has 20, three dots of resources has...

    Maybe Pegasus bans men because he's jealous of their working cock?



    This is purely wishful thinking, and you should know it. I'm not trying to disparage your personal views, but your argument here is that you think the spirit is thinking like you do, and thus should take actions according to your line of thought. As Pegasus has not taken action in line with your thought, for thousands of years I might add, either Pegasus doesn't think like you hope, or Pegasus has very little say with what goes on in the tribe, or some combination of the two.

  • Dexterity is very broad, but at least it's cohesive. Composure on the other hand... Skill with firearms and your ability to deal with social stresses.... I think it's too broad. I do like V5's -Use Strength to shoot in melee- but that's somewhat because of how abstract the combat is. As I play VTM rather than V5, I stick with Dexterity. I'm more generous with Aim rules so I don't really need to switch out Dex for perception when sniping, because you'll get most of your Perception added on to the roll and it becomes Dex+Firearms+Perception (and Auspex mitigates the need for a scope/reduces...

    I don't want to derail the thead too much, but I think your conclussions are off given the information provided.
    - Male lupus, after the first change, are as human and 'man' as homid men in many senses, and are every bit as capable of cruelty.

    - Spirit logic is not people logic, why are you under the assumption that Pegasus sees gender seperately from sex? And if pegasus does make that distinction, would pegasus be likely to adopt your very human interpretation of should and shouldn't be verboten? Or maybe Pegasus is an all-too-human mercenary neolib spirit who'll allow or ban...

    But the whole point of Werewolves were that they're angry and exclusive monsters with heroic qualities... Being Harsh and non-inclusive is kinda The Theme. I felt like I was doing wrong the one time I had a silent strider in my group, nevermind having a mixed-breed game.
    We're playing fascistic eco-terrorists
    Every tribe is meant to be flawed, The BF excluding men was their flaw. If the biological men at the table want to play black furies, they can play women, or metis. cutting down a tribe's flaw through liberalization just to pander undermines the core themes of the game. The setting...

    So did he claim domain over all these agencies and absolutely everybody respected this domain? And when the SI came knocking nobody thought to to change things up? How many methuselah are in the capitol supporting him? It's gotta be a league right?

    Maybe I didn't get enough sleep last night but all the thoughts that come into my head concerning this matter can be summarised as groans of annoyance. Maybe it ties into my 'SI is artificial and just the elders killing the neonates' theory but...

  • I don't know what you're talking about because I generally don't read city books but it seems silly. This Vitel guy owns the place where the goverment, pentagon and half the ABC agencies are? That sounds silly. And he's on the SI's radar? Also silly. And he might not actually be the guy? Yeah, Ok, I'm not going to refute that, but just because a book says something does not make it reasonable. Are you saying the vampires of washington allowed one vampire to hold all the important eggs in his one basket, who presumably isn't some kind of heaven-defying methuselah?

    So after seeing this thread a little while back I started reading changing ways (thinking "how bad can it be?)

    -While the trans stuff leaves much to be desired, is it really that bad? Reading this thread, it sounds like the book's full of hate. I've only read this little bit, and it seems like someone who didn't want to talk about trans people was made to talk about trans people and they got weird with the -Garou don't like it because it's unnatural / But also if you just ask a spirit you can change and it's dead easy-
    Look, it's definitely not good, and If I channel...

  • If you're going to war in the middle east, it helps greatly to influence the mortal societies that are also interfering with the middle east. Giving up on the USA, A nation where the need to go to war is decided upon by weapons manufacturers, which uses million dollar missiles instead of cheap artillery, and which fires off guns because they have too much ammunition coming in... That's just fucking stupid.
    There's also the prospect that the middle east is a ruse and abandoning their prosperous lands for war-torn ones will just give the Antes and the Cam an unfathomable advantage when the...

  • The best way to capture a Lupine would probably be with Dominate 4; Conditioning. They will be your obedient prisoner even as you test them and slice them up. You can even have them defend you when their pack comes to rescue them.


    -You can spiritually enhance drugs to increase their effectiveness, which may even allow them to have an effect on lupines with -resist toxin-.
    -A kilogram of pure silver is about $800 or 660 euroes , and is about 95 cubic centimetres. Silver is very easy to work with, and you could easily use it to coat a much stronger material like steel...

  • -High gauntlet rating, of course that probably won't be something the characters can really know about without considerable occult. A Weaver/Wyrm environment (either artificial/very toxic or some combination of the two... a poluted factory, a hospital of abuse...) will make it harder.
    -Rituals. Just use rituals like wards or something. If it exists, there's magic for it.
    -Strong drugs. The majority of lupines are susceptible to drugs if in breed form. (IMO everyone should strive for Resist Toxin because it's essential and you're an idiot if you don't get it, but apparently it's...

  • For me, The drive of vampire is the 'fear of being caught'. Fundamentally, we're playing criminals, even if we're aiming to be 10 humanity saints we're still monsters that suck blood. We do all-sorts of crazy stuff to avoid being caught. Vampires might be 'contentious loners with trust issues' but they look for co-conspirators and they embrace for piers and they need a web to keep them up. A conspiracy with one person's just not a conspiracy......

  • Maybe it's that holistic kind of thing malks are supposed to do; -Prepare for the Sabbat, when there is no Sabbat, so that when the Sabbat do come with their Total-Surprise attack the city is armed to the teeth and ready-

    More reasonably, perhaps the malkavian knows exactly what person A,B and C will do if a seige comes, and wants to take advantage of this knowledge; Damage their properties while they're hunkering down or fleeing.
    Or you could have the Malkavian claim to have nuetralized the imaginary threat to claim credits.


    Or, you know, he could just...
