  • Don't forget also that the Feats of Strength chart isn't just always Strength stat but depending on what you're trying to achieve can be Strength + Athletics or even Melee and that steel dome is only as strong as it's rivets and an average Strength Garou with Average Athletics is going to rip that dome open with 1 success on that WP roll and spending a point of Willpower. Add in anything past average and it's easier, throw in some Ancestors background maybe or a Gift or some Totem bonus and the werewolf is leaving.

  • If they have become a bit gun shy as it were scale back the supernatural opposition aspect of the game. A ton of the "wyrms minions" are just rather callous or misguided and easily corrupted regular people. When. Had a group new to Werewolf not so long ago their early investigations led then to a gang (plus a couple of banes n the umbra urging / feeding on their activities should the pack step sideways. No Fomori, no significant swarm of Scags, just gang of humans. Sure they had a couple of 9mm semi automatic handguns, knives and a broken bottle. Sure the pack were not in a situation...

  • If they are Pack then sure thing, you just lead the way for the pack. If they are not then that's trickier and requires a Gift, a very low gauntlet or some other spiritual assistance.

  • Most people who work for Pentex (well its subsidiaries as almost no one works for Pentex) are just that, people who work for Company X. Maybe a little more jaded and run down with more temper issues than others but their day to day typically wouldnt involve corpses and such, much less the true horrors of the Wyrm.

  • Though I do not recall if there were any ever rules published BSDs do have a Fetish/Talen silver cuff restraint that inhibits the ability to shift shape. This would suggest that regular silver while painful and dangerous just isn't put the task. Iirc there is also a story in one of the books where the antagonists go "Those restraints are silver so don't even think about shifting" and a few moments later the bound Garou takes some nasty wounds in the process of shifting and ripping himself free.

    Typically the wounds done by silver don't change in type compared to what they'd...

    Well there is Blood Magic (Thaumaturgy, Kauldonic Sorcery, Assamite Sorcery, Abyssal Mysticism and so forth) and there is blood magic being part of plenty of Garou rituals, practices to draw the attention of the old gods and otherwise acting as Mage foci (typically Verbana).

    replied to Nephandi crossover stuff
    A Nephandic Wraith is the easiest to answer as it would be a Spectre, likewise a Demon in the body of a Nephandus I believe would be somewhat different to normal but I don't know Demon well enough to comment (the problem being the way that demon kind of fails to cross over with the Mage/Vampire Demon and Infernal rules and way things work). If embraced by a Vampire they would default to whatever the combination of virtues they have at moment of embrace totals out to, odds are they wouldn't have a Humanity rating for long and they would either quickly be on a Path or become a Wight in short or...

  • Both Mage: The Ascension and Vampire: The Masquerade (or Dark Ages) are very good for 1 Player 1 ST games. Vampire may be the easier of the two for the first time out but Mage does have a free quick start on DriveThruRPG.com

    We had a chronicle where it happened, to one of the three Player Characters. It was awesome. We started out as a random Pack of a Wendigo (Rides-the-Wind), a Glasswalker (Joseph Watson, later known as Angel of the Web, my character) and a Fianna (Skyhowl). We did some crazy stuff, it was a true roller coaster. We saw a Caern die, fought Wyrm Monsters, cleansed an ancient Mokole, killed a bunch of Ratkin, befriended a Gurhal, ripped open a hive and cleansed the Totem within it. Made friends, watched friends die. Found one of Rorgs missing teeth and sought the personal wisdom of Helios. We defended...

    replied to Opinions on Rank 6
    Rank 6 is something you're not going to see in most games. IIRC until Revised the only character to have a Rank 6 listing was Golgol Fangs First. They are the rarest of the rare and you only get there through acknowledgment of other living Legends of the Garou or through equal similar proclamations.

    Given that the most important characters in a chronicle are your players characters it's entirely possible that they may well strive to become Legends and one or two might even make it. Of course Rank 5 is the target most people go for and many may not ever make it past Adren but it's...

    The only way I can think of outside of the Moot and the Rites involved with that (and the Rite of Caern Building which is making a brand new one) is a Mage with Prime 4/5 and if you want a caern instead of a Node, Spirit 4/5 too. Blood magic is not going to be recharging a Caern as it is inherently anti-Gaian. But the Garou just have the Moot and maybe one or too very rare options, (I think there might be a Rank 5 CoG gift)

    replied to Opinions on Rank 6
    To be fair as the Apocalypse war grows the ability to become Legend grows likewise. There are fewer Legends in the world born out of peace than conflict for example. I see no issue with there being the Rank 6 characters as have been presented to us in the stories and background material for Werewolf. After all there are only a half dozen or so currently in the Nation and most of them didn't go through the Rite as described above but were basically recognized as such by the Celestines and so forth, the likes of Golgol Fangs First, The Margrave and Albrecht certainly being worthy of the acclama...

    replied to Questions about Union Policy
    Posthumanity, you have already made up your mind on the matter and are choosing to willfully ignore any of the written or presented evidence on why the Union hasn't simply wiped out every trace of every supernatural creature what so ever on the planet, turned them all into Union tools, won every war on the planet, directly control every government on the planet and so forth. Stating that the GttT is pre Avatar Storm and M20 is irrelevant as there's been nothing contradict it's base facts and as such is still (currently) the main Technocracy reference book. This is also ignoring the fact that...

    THE GREATEST HONOR: LEGEND
    Truly exceptional Garou beyond Rank Five exist.
    These legends are given special rewards for their courage
    and service to Gaia, and their names are spoken
    with the same reverence that we have for Hercules,
    Miyamoto Musashi, and Joan of Arc.
    However, such advancement is beyond the mere
    acquisition of Renown. Legends are part of an exclusive
    group, and to qualify, a prospective Elder Garou
    must distinguish herself in an extraordinary fashion
    more than once. The attainment of the Legend Rank
    has nothing whatsoever...

    By the way Guide to the Technocracy also flat out states that it doesn't have the resources to maintain dealing with the Traditions at the level it is and declare war in the undead. They're also ignorant of the threats of the Weaver and Wyrm and has lost more than one Amalgam through spiritual corruption alone not to mention the problems with Syndicate involvement in Pentex. Changelings don't exist for the union and any agent saying otherwise needs to check in for re-education afterall even f there are some fairies about they couldnt possinly posevs threat, some of the Kithain societies on the...

    Well a Moot is the typical way, that and there's a couple of other Rites (like Caern Creation).
