  • Though it's worth nothing that Albrecht (and a lot of Non-player & ST characters in fact) does not have any BG points IN Totem....

  • Going on the fact that it's Falcon that interacts with the pack displaying several of the Totem Traits you can buy with Background Points during the comic intro and outro in the 2nd edition book. falcon also shows up in other bits of fiction relating to the pack too. Granted it could just be Falcon interceding because he's a Silverfang etc but given that they are supposed to be an example of a player pack in action then it really looks like Falcon is Totem....

  • Janos is supposed to represent the resurgence of the Silverfangs rising to the challenge of the times rather that sitting on the laurels of their fathers and trying to lord it over the other tribes (BE Leaders instead of simply shouting a lot about your title and heritage, a mistake Janos himself makes a couple of times, but also realizes it) and the Silverfangs trying to be a bit different too to how they are seen and have been. The pack does have a name, it's simply "Albrecht's Pack" and it's totem is Falcon, they are also quite a good example of a Questing Pack with Ranked members...

  • "Sun Spirits" can easily refer to the Brood of Helios, as such they would include Falcon spirits (not Falcons brood but only those spirits that represent Falcon), the Talons of Horus, Fire Bird, there is a Sun Warrior spirit (I believe is either connected to the Wendigo or Uktena, but also can be found with Fianna ties). Corn Maiden is also part of Helios Brood and it's worth taking a look in Rage Across the Heavens for some of the residence of Helios Realm.

    Hope this helps.

  • Mithras didn't have access to Guns when he faced down Lupines as they would not be invented for a few centuries at that point. Plenty of the Methuselah survive millennium passing with out Protean as they find a lair and tend to settle, don't tend to travel much and when they do travel have other options (sealed cart/box ala coffins, actual burying, using a cave, full body shrouding) if they have to be out of a settlement during the day (which is fairly unlikely) or work through intermediateries meaning the old vampire doesn't need to go from place to place....

  • Vampires are always going to be at a disadvantage vs Werewolves. I don't have London by Night but there used to be a whole stack of nice Fort 6 advasnced disciplines and there also used to be some fairly awesome Ventrue combi disciplines featuring fortitude. However for Mithras I would wager he employs some fairly offensive uses of high level Dominate and Presence for starters, a silver weapon (because HE probably is aware of that and certainly has the resources), also Solo may be a relative term (Animalism and a pack of discipline controlled wolves for example)....

    Come up with a loose plot outline for the game you want to run.
    Develop some NPCs with a few footnotes.
    Come up with a few important locations to what story your are telling.
    Look at the characters people create, pay attention to their Paradigms and choices in spheres
    Work out what is relevant from the characters they have created to the type of story you have crib notes for.
    Look at the challenges, looks at the character notes, work out HOW the characters can overcome those challenges, add footnotes accordingly. Seriously DO THIS if nothing else.
    Be ready...

  • RE: Kitsune

    They are focused as such because they came about in the Hengyokai book during the year of the Lotus late 2nd edition and were not a part of the Werewolf cosmology until then. Any of the Western type Fox-Shifter-Tricksters would be Pooka from Changeling the Dreaming. The Kistune legends have a slightly different flavour to them than the fox legends and myths in the west and as such they worked quite well for the Year of the Lotus to have a different Changing breed from everything done before up to that point....

  • As Derhuzad said for the Bunyip and Kitsune.

    Regards the Gondr, Apis they are dead in the same way the Camasotz are dead. War or Rage species killing in Fera Ancient-Pre History has done the damage on both the physical and spiritual level to remove the Changing Breed entirely. Actually there are some "Grondr" still around, what's left of them are the Wyrm Monsters known as SkullPigs, the Apis is dead, dead but the Camasotz also have some dodgy Wyrmy echoes....

    Womble Spoon it. The possession came from handling a Native American item, so get that involved. Maybe it's a Wonder in it's own right that can help but working out how to use it will require some leg work and the skills of the cabal, or maybe using it with Correspondence + Spirit holds the answer. There's a whole host of possibilities that may not require Spirit 4.

    I find when I'm running Mage it helps to have a rough idea of the 'plot thing' and a few ideas on exactly how to approach dealing with it, then listen to you players and what they think might work as they are investigating...

  • Resources 5 means that Popes and Kings come knocking to fund Civic Projects, palaces, bribery, wars that kind of thing. Resources 5 is the perfect excuse to levy loads of plot, politics and RP at the character. It's a very useful tool but one that also garners attention from the powers that be, one that must be maintained and in the Dark Ages one that requires looking after and defending. Same chronicle as I posted on for the Weird Horror thread one of my Players Characters was Res 5 and it led to all kinds of extra stuff, concern when the Guild conflicts broke out in the city, the Prince basically...

    Using any ancient Vampire and their motivations / the Jyhad can also provide and when I say ancient I mean ancient. Throw in some serious examples of the Long game from a creature who's existence is measured in millennia (or even just over one millennium can do it).

    Never did anything in a Vampire game that really freaked out my players as much as them finding a record of events written on a wall in a buried series of tunnels beneath an old building with it's own storied history. Learning the tunnels vastly outdated the building and the family bloodline (including a few vampires)...

  • It should be noted that First Teams are not regular Pentex Subsidiary security. You shouldn't be seeing First Teams in many places except very secure locations or in operations where you're expecting to see professional or terrifying threats (Garou, Dies Ultimae etc). As a result what you get are First Teams as statted in the BotW20, they've got their silver knife and their clip of silver ammo, anti delirium ballistic goggle/glasses or are Fomori they may even have Pus Armour and similar tools They're well kitted, well trained and they know something of their enemy.

    But... They will...
