    I could see some members (of any species) seeing humanity as the levers of power more than the wielders,* much like the Invictus does - but yes, doubts sound likely all the same. Come to think of it, it might be common for members of Sworn factions to have doubts about their respective higher powers, simply because the Contagion seems to defy them.

    * Likewise, I could see the "contagion is evolution" faction regarding humanity as the environment and shape of selective pressures....

    Moreover, I think he only described a deduction as elementary once.

    Even joining a covenant with the express purpose of maintaining Humanity might be a breaking point because it's an internal admission that that is something you can no longer do on your own.

    Agreed. He also thought there were many types of good, which sounds more Carthian than any of the others....

    Well... I'm in agreement with those who think the Deceived would be better off in a supplement where they can get maximum room. But you could quite easily fill all three tiers with groups who would antagonists to the Arisen, but viable player characters.

    For example, in the core book, you could have:

    Tier 1: Cultists, Witnesses

    Tier 2: Sadikh, Ghost Cultists (or Revenant Cultists)

    Tier 3: Arisen


    And in supplements, you could have:

    Tier 1: Tomb Raiders (in this context, I mean humans with interest in and...

    From the preview, it certainly looks like it.

    Of all the factions, the Cryptocracy also seems like the one which would have a particular interest in - and knowledge of - an interconnected set of supernatural matrices nestled inside human structures, that steers humanity for its own ends....

  • They would have, though it's a fair bet the Invictus and Carthians would resist it for fear of the powers being duplicated. In my interpretation of Requiem for Rome, the Invictus had its genesis in the Legio Mortuum, the military wing of the Roman Camarilla* - the structure of Oaths partakes both of military loyalty/unit cohesion, and oaths of initiation (paralleling the popularity of Mithraism in the Roman army). So I'd posit a very specialised kind of blood magic used by the Legio to enforce discipline and duty, repurposed by the Invictus later on. But basically that: blood magic; whatever...

    What CInder saif about Italy:... makes me think of Mage. This idealised sense of patriotism and glory vs the grimmer reality sounds like a possible to mirror to the Supernal and the Fallen. Perhaps an early faction of the Free Council supports the war - even in the face of how terrible it is - because they think such a crucible will provoke more Awakenings.

    Beast: One of the most common complains, discussions, and hacks about Beast (coming from many different sentiments) is alternate philosophies to that of lessons. WWI is an era where that could be put front and centre.

    There was a horror film I saw, I can't remember its name. But the plot could essentially be summed as the Front becoming such Hell on Earth that it's created its own devils to preside over it. You could use Inferno or the Shadow Realm for that, or core book horrors.

    I don't either, but it would be pretty cool.

    That would make sense. And it would make sense for that one not to concentrate on any one line.


    Another option might be a supernatural phenomenon, otherworld, or magical location that's not tied to one splat, but one which can be used or explored by all of them on a more or less even footing (sort of the like the Shadow Realm might be if the only game lines you had to hand were Vampire, Promethean, Changeling, Hunter, and Mummy) - and how the Contagion affects that.

    Or a setting where the supernaturals...

    Vampire, Werewolf, Mage, Promethean. Changeling, Hunter, Geist, Demon, Mummy, Beast, Deviant = 11. What's the twelfth going to be themed on, I wonder?...
