    Oh yeah, I'm definitely healing in that regard.

    Anyways, I've done some updates in response to criticisms.
    • I've rewritten the introduction to be less confrontational and better convey why I'm making Monomyth.
    • The Integrity analogue has been separated from Myth and made into Conformity. Conformity represents a Beast's attunement to the Monomyth; how well they obey to its rules. They start with 3 dots in it at character creation. If they have 10 dots they fully succumb to the Monomyth, becoming a Storyteller character. Myth is the Beast's personal legend; its dots increasing as

    Well, if you believe this thread shouldn't be in the Beast subforum, I think that's fair. If the thread needs to be moved, it needs to be moved. I just thought of posting here since Monomyth is related to Primordial in terms of general concept. On the other hand, I can also see how it should be put in the general ChronDark forum since it's very much its own game.



    Not liking Primordial isn't being abrasive. I ain't demanding Primordial to be taken away or arguing that those who enjoy it are wrong for doing so. I personally don't enjoy it but I want to, so I'm making Monomyth...

    That's...precisely one of the themes of Monomyth. I mean, it's called a "Storytelling game of Vicious Cycles" for a reason. The Monomyth is nothing more than an imposed script on both Beasts and Heroes. Most protagonist Beasts seek a way to defy or escape it. They don't like what the Monomyth says about them and commands them to do. Considering it says "You're a horrible thing that needs to die" it's a pretty natural reaction to say "Fuck you, I'm more than that". It's the whole "What makes a man a man?" idea from Hellboy.

    Now,

    One of the aspects of Primordial was how Beasts and Heroes are forced into a specific story. I took that as the main focus of conflict for Monomyth. The Monomyth gives Beasts and Heroes their power, but it also constrains them to the script. Hence why it's both their power stat and Integrity analogue.


    That's...kinda CoD's schtick when you get right down to it. I mean, its main focus is personal horror, after all.


    I'm not familiar with that, so I can't answer your questions here.


    Monomyth's gonna have that in the form of nightmare feedin

    Well, I'm making Monomyth mostly for me. Even if I'm the only one who uses it, I'd still consider that a success. Besides, I think there's a substantial number of people who would be interested in this.

    That said, I don't see how things like some of the Breeds, Creeds, Devoured, Abominations, etc. couldn't be adapted to Primordial. I'm may not be interested in doing so, but I wouldn't be adverse to you (or anyone else, for that matter) doing so.

    Beast: the Monomyth

    A Storytelling Game of Vicious Cycles



    I simply can't play Beast: the Primordial, but I want to. I love the core ideas, it's just the execution I had problems with. So, I’ve decided to take the concept in a very different direction in Beast: the Monomyth (which, alongside Beast: the Primordial, will be referred to by their subtitles from here on).

    Monomyth is less of a homebrew and more of a complete overhaul. Nearly everything has been changed. The only thing it has in common with Primordial is the core concepts and some other bits here and there. Monomyth is...
