  • Mummy is a game where the player characters don't have to always be around each other and is specifically built to faciliate flashbacks between past and present. It's nice in that your characters can utilize several settings (Dark Eras and the three Sothic Turns in Sothis Ascends) should you desire.

    Now, the game is dense, and is tragically 1e, but it ticks every box you want.

    This is the most insufferably niche, excruciatingly me-and-me-only complaint in the fucking universe, but I have a strange fondness for the historical cult of a Magna Mater, an Anatolian fertility deity imported to ancient Greece and Rome most notable for its priesthood of born men who lived as women, because I'm a bad historian who breaks the rule about imposing modern values on the past and can't help but see them as a rare soace for trans women in a very patriarchal ancient world. Where the complaining part comes in is that I've seen them treated exactly three times in fiction, and each of...

    I have a Wraith tattoo, don't tell me I don't know about my favorite gameline.



    Meanwhile in canon, they attacking and conquering domains on the West Coast, killing or lording over the native Kindred populations. You can day you don't play them like that, but the books themselves have THE KUNG FU MONSTERS ARE COMING TO STEAL CALIFORNIA FROM YOU and it reads fucking hideously....

    In a perfect world, the Ravnos would be cut entirely, and the Setites would be a branch of Clan Baali devoted to Apep.

    I just loathe the Kuei-Jin on principle. There's really no need for a Yellow Peril plotline in Vampire, and hastily slapping together a bogus "Asian" mythology for what are largely just Risen with a funny name and more Orientalism has never struck a chord with me.

    My boyfriend is Rroma himself and from Romania, but through him I've met folks from all over Eastern Europe and America. All of them loathe the term equally; it's on par with the N word....

    Some Romani attempt to reclaim that particular slur, but Romani has always been the acceptable name and what they largely refer to themselves as.

    If you want Ravnos at your table, do what the books have done for ages now: they're Indian illusionists who suffer from compulsive behaviors. No racist Romani shit, no "I am a slave to my vices," and definitely no calling them the G word.

    Your players have a right to voice their aversion to the most racist thing in the history of Masquerade, I don't really see the issue.

    The current V20/DAV20 version of the Ravnos is fine, but the older take on them was hideously offensive. Thwy had a racial slur for a clan nickname and had zero substance beyond embodying the worst of a racist stereotype.

  • That reminde me: I'd love to see Cybele/Magna Mater, both for her interesting divine aspects and to see where she (as an Anatolian goddess imported from Greece and to Rome from there) would be sorted Pantheon-wise....

    The idea I'm sitting on right now is a vampire running a modeling agency, giving their herd business opportunities and eternal ghouled beauty in exchange for blood.

    Boy fucking howdy do I love when cis gay men tell me I can't hate drag. That's my favorite thing in this whole wide world.

    Wraiths are those dead with enough of their wits about them to not be mindless; ghosts who endlessly repeat tasks or the events of their deaths are known as Drones, and are usually left alone until someone rounds them all up for soulforging.

  • Maybe this is showing my mechanical preferences too strongly, but I'm not sure literacy or social class need mechanics. Why not just have that be RP?

  • If anyone is looking for extra Roman goodness, The 7th Edition Guide to Cthulhu Invictus recently crowdfunded through Kickstarter and should hopefully be out later this year. Even if you don't use the Mythos material, it should be nice for a broader history of Antonine Rome.

  • I'm not sure why we need a Noble merit when you could just as easily keep that abstracted in roleplay or else represent it with high Resources.

  • I absolutely adore Victorian Hong Kong as a setting and wish you the best with it. If you want some inspiration, I think the first episode of the second season of Ripper Street revolves around a corrupt police inspector out of HK and those he's hurt that hunted him back to London.

    In my headcanon, modern HK has the Directional Courts in a cold war with the Seasonals that the British back then; if you go back a century, that conflict is likely still hot, with Lost gang wars in the streets and on the sea.

  • I'm a little sad that the Reborn never got mechanics, but at least it lets me feel like my Incarnates aren't wasted.

    Were the Visitors in the original Immortals book? I don't really remember....
