  • A very good rule to have in game design is not to use the same word for different and unrelated features of your game.

    (See also Apostates and Apostates; one is a follower of a particular Road, and the other is a person who no longer follows that Road. Confusing, obviously.)

    In rule terms, the answer is probably no, you can't view Road auras with Auspex. Given that Road auras have only been covered in two books with relatively weak development (Dark Ages: Vampire, and DAV20), it's not too surprising that this has been missed. The confusion of the two aura types was raised...

  • How quickly did foreign powers learn of a Prince's birth? If you're in France, you would probably learn of the birth of a new member of the English royal family in weeks or months, but we are talking about two countries with strong links and close geographic proximity. On the other hand, the time it would take to learn of new members born into the ruling dynasties of, say, the Banate of Bosnia or the Duchy of Lithuania is going to be measured in years/decades/never.

  • I wish people wouldn't keep repeating these myths. There are a lot of population estimates for medieval Africa from reputable historians, all of which indicate less dense populations, smaller cities, and fewer people in general than Europe. Take Mali; the area which the empire covered now has a population of roughly 37 million people; in 1950 it had 7.1 million people, and in the medieval period, the population was far less. Medieval France, by contrast, had at least 12 million people within its borders. Medieval Kanem could send 40,000 horsemen out on an annual basis, which is greater than any...
