    replied to H20 for 2019?
    Honestly having how these things function in the face of modern technology even without metaplot updates is a thing.. I Mean.. has Hunter.net gone all Social media? Is there a Hunter App? The world didn't end 10 years ago.. what has decade of development lead to with Hunters.(I Guess that's more metaplot isn't it?)...

    It is and it isn't. The whole situation with visas is currently complex. But while you can LIVE in China the rules still apply differently to you than citizens. Conversely at first I Imagine there are laws that make it SUPER EASY to naturalize as a Nova in the USA....

    Right I mean, even Most Chinese Novas would probably find the US offers a greater level of comfort. Which is why the USA gets hit harder than other nations because it takes in more novas on average.. and more likely the ones who have less connection to people(so the ones who are more likely to go crazy!)





    So would a complete colapse into Mad max have been less cliched? I don't see how you get from Nova age to Apocalypse without the USA taking the brunt of it. I mean we could have a bunch of USA successor states taking up North America But that would lead...

  • The more Super stuff(Flux, Psi, Quantum) the more it perpetuates the creation of new entities. That's why I think Allegences are so important to Talents. We know that subconsciousness does effect how a person's power manifests and at least at one point Mal is responsible for functionally using Global Quatumn supremecy but there's also all sorts of high end quantum powers that will effect a species.

    Mal wanted a people to belong to. This is clear. He MAY have had to power to litterally make this so.


    I"m also slightly of the opinion like how other races are...

    China isn't North Korea now, or even in the Nova Age. Its just ALOT of Chinese Novas would probably leave because they can make more money elsewhere and China can't keep a teleporter in....

  • I don't think he engineered them to the Extent that the Doyen did, BUT I do think he did more than just "Make Novas more likely to happen"/ Powers to effect the Earth and every person on the earth was a thing. Powers functionally on a subconscious level based on people's beliefs and desires are a thing. I think that some of the "novas as distant gods" thing is magnified by Mal's view of himself as such.

    The Doyen were a lot more specific on wanting tools to kill Novas. They wanted them produceable on an industrial fashion. They wanted these aptitudes. etc. Mal...

  • Talent inheritence-Honestly Its almost more like a benign disease than anything inheritable. One Talent brings flux with them in their actions thus leading to the potential to others.. and the more Talents around the more likely someone is to become a talent. Thus Talent families happen, but more the general Reproductive source for talents is the Allegence as they are a much more extreme gathering of Talents.

    SIMILARLY I consider that Stalwarts and Psiads the "natural" might have similar setups with Quantum and Psi so you have secret magical societies.. and pantheons but...

    Honestly the FSA got hit hard not just because of all the American Novas but.. all the immigrant Novas. Brain/Nova drain is probably an issue for many countries where they flock to america to make easy money there's probably the highest percentage of Novas to norms so.. the fact that the FSA isn't full on Mad max wasteland is fairly optimstic given the timeline.

    replied to Anarchs, what's the appeal?
    Honestly deep down sect is just a team jersey. IF you just want to personally get ahead which I think is the op's issue the Anarchs provide: More upward mobility, magic without having to join amway or be embraced into it, and generally better access to the new among mortals. Both the Camarilla and Sabbat are generally better at "Old" stuff. Sometimes the tried and true methods work. Sometimes they don't for all the SI has driven the Cam offline.. the Anarchs are still there. So why join the anarchs? because you want to use Google Maps sometimes without being threatened by the SHeri...

    replied to Anarchs, what's the appeal?
    No, the SI shows how fundimentally weak the Cam is. YOU CAN quit. You can destroy the system. YOu can make something else. The elders are powerful but the world is moving out from under them. Now the Camarilla and Sabbat can adapt and change into something else.. or they can fall just like the War of Princes, Just like the Eternal Senate, Just like Carthage. Just like the Second City. The war of ages is built in.

    Also there's an SI agent who was embraced and is still a member of the SI in Chicago.. but that's more Option 4 than anarch....

    That's buying into their bullshit. That's why the SI is such an important point in V5. The Camarilla and the Sabbat ARE not the system. They are best an elaborate criminal conspiracy. They are best the vampire Mafia. Vampires are nothing more than Parasites. THey do not run the world. They hide from it. The biggest mistake the game ever made was saying conventional weapons weren't enough to take out even the biggest and nastiest of vampires....

    Are you a good person? DO you think you are a good person? IF you were embraced would you try to be a good person? Well its join the Anarchs or face the sun. Maybe you can't save the world as an anarch but you can make take just one piece from those who are so much worse than you... Just about every Vampire protagonist in fiction I can think of.. is an Anarch. There's no "Be a good little cog in the evil conspiracy that secretly runs everything and makes people miserable"
