  • I love this idea. I would consider the risks to Cover to be a feature, here. The characters need to sneak in, locate and verify their target without tipping off anyone to their intentions, convince the target that they're the rescue squad and not other agents of the Machine checking for loyalty (which could cause a compromise all on its own if they reveal that they're demons), then smuggle the target out without drawing attention. The whole time the characters just need to take it on faith that the defector is on the level and not actually a Sleeper or an angel in disguise. That's an awesome story....

  • Ah, I see. That is a pity, but it does make me curious as to the ones still being considered. If these are the ones that have already been removed from your list of potentials, I'm sure the ones still on it must be solid gold....

  • Are those the ones that you've narrowed down to? Those all seem like great ideas to me....

    On the lighter side of things, talking about trickster antics on another thread reminded me of this one:

    The Gods Are Not Crazy

  • That's generally the way it works whenever I have that happen. The player character watches their antics, has a good laugh, and then walks away with her winnings....

  • Interestingly enough, I've been contemplating home brewing such a Lineage for quite some time, although I go back and forth about whether to make the Geppetto Lineage require a Fetch or simply leave that as an option for them....

  • That's a neat idea, wyrdhamster. I'd be amused to see the Age of Exploration. That said, I imagine that the Pirates era could also give us some magely seafaring rules if that one wasn't used....

  • ...Holy crap, Second Chances. You just sold me on Mummy in the sci fi era. That was like the one game that I couldn't see for it, and now I actually want to see that. I'd been hoping for Deviant plus Changeling, Beast, or Promethean, and now I have to add Mummy to that list as well. While I acknowledge that Demon fits for it as well, I feel like Demon already has a good bit of science fiction to it already. Are you considering sci fi Mummy as an option for your expansion?...

  • Yes, an "Heirs to Arcadia" book could be awesome. I'd love to see something like that.

    Here's a couple more thoughts:

    A book of Fae magic. I'm thinking it could include more Contracts and Entitlements, of course, but I'd also like to see some new things in there. I'd especially like to see "Hedge Alchemy" at work, using bizarre recipes involving goblin fruits and more unusual ingredients to create strange new things. Hell, I wouldn't mind writing that myself.

    A book of Huntsmen. This could give both sample Huntsmen and expanded information...

  • I think it could be interesting to have a book of settings that was built through stretch goals. I'm thinking something where another is added to it in the same way that stories are usually collected for the anthologies during other Kickstarters. It would be able to include new areas with their Courts, Entitlements, and Kiths. Heck, we could open it up to other time periods and end up with some settings that would be similar to the sort you'd find in a Dark Eras book. With a lot of stretch goals, such a thing could become quite the useful resource.

  • You have some awesome ideas here! Seeing them expanded makes it even harder to choose which of them would be my favorite. I guess if I were to rank them, I'd go with this order:
    1. French Revolution Mummy
    2. Western Front Promethean
    3. Pirate Hunter
    4. Seven Wonders Mummy
    5. Arthurian Demon
    6. 1001 Nights Mage

    I find myself wondering whether they'll reveal the game lines for the stretch goal eras after the KS, or whether they'll wait to choose them until after they see what the expanders choose. I'm actually torn over which I'd prefer....

  • I have no other suggestions to offer until they reveal the lines for the stretch goals, but of those that you've put forth here, Pirate Hunter, Western Front Promethean, or the Mummy options would be the ones that I'd find most interesting....

  • Agreed. That said, I'd be kind of disappointed if it went to Demon. It's already fairly simple to take a science fiction approach to Demon, so going with that one strikes me as low-hanging fruit. It's not that I don't think it would be awesome, but I'd prefer to see something a little less expected for that one. Personally I'd like to see Changeling for that one, but I'm biased, so take that for what it's worth. I'd still want to see Deviant for it, though....

  • Cohort is an awesome name for a group of Renegades! Of course, I've really liked everything I've seen so far, so I suppose that there's little surprise that I'd like that as well. Do you have any plans for including other critters in the line as well? I can just imagine twisted animal experiments that were the "test subjects" before the Deviants were created....

  • That is awesome! Thank you so much for sharing that. I'm totally using those visuals in a game at some point.

  • I actually had that happen in a game I ran once. More commonly, I have groups of trickster deities gambling for various stolen goods. I call that semi-regular event "Gods Playing Poker", and it usually happens at least once in every world featuring the old Gods in the modern day, regardless of game system. I pretty much treat all the tricksters as being both friends and rivals with each other....

  • And Matt's at the helm of both of them! If The Tormented has as much awesome stuff in it as Enemy Action does, I will be very happy to add it to my collection. To say that I have high expectations for it would be an understatement. I'm especially intrigued by the idea of the new antagonist type, but I certainly wouldn't mind a new Lineage or two....

  • I doubt they'll reveal the lines until after the KS is over. While I agree that Mage would make sense for the era, I think it will depend a lot on how many other eras get added. If we don't achieve that many through stretch goals, it will probably be given to other lines, since Mage already won the Pirate vote. That said, I also wouldn't be surprised if one of the expanders added Mage into it....

  • I'm expecting the latter. I could definitely support something called "the Reaper Chronicle". I'm looking forward to learning more about them....
