  • I can't remember whose idea this was, but it was for a set of five books, each about a tribe and its corresponding sacred prey. I wouldn't mind that (especially if it started with Hunters in Darkness and Hosts)....

  • Hunter, I'd say. It's not so much "who's the best at X" as "whose strengths and weaknesses most inescapably revolve around X" and hunters are the truest embodiment of how humans are weak when ignorant and alone, but powerful when they learn and get together. If we must pick a supernatural, then I'd go with Mummy....

    replied to How do guilds actually work?
    I think it was Dataweaver who suggested that the Y and Z splats should be redefined so that Y only refers to social factions, while Z changes from the "prestige class" splat to internal philosophies (thus for example, vampires have X and Y splats while Prometheans have X and Z). In that light, you consider Guilds to be Z splats left ofter from Y splats that did exist (and sometimes get reformed for a time when enough mummies of that type are awake). I think it fits the age theme of Mummy, in that who you were holds an inescapable sway over who you are - and when those who shared experiences...

    4. Malkovians exist, but the Malkavia disease does not. Malkovians have a bloodline gift that replicates some aspects of Dementation. And frequenly a codependent relationship with the Morotrophians.

  • I think Sineaters might be the targets of a lot of insults that fail in a similar way. I can't think of a pithy way to phrase it, but I could see a mage belittling their shallow and trashy approach to the mysteries, and getting a similar response....

  • Cinnabar sounds like an insult one Promethean would use on another, while the others sound like insults other supernaturals would give them.

    Vampires could call mortals (and anyone else they can feed from) cans.

    Addressing someone as: Patches for Prometheans, Fuzzmorph for werewolves, Dusty for mummies....

  • Interestingly, the textual evidence in the novel is that the Creature was not made from body parts - the scale thing first as foremost - the Creature was around eight feet tall, because it made it easier for Frankenstein to assemble him, but you can't just resize most body parts for that, or combine them into larger versions. There's also the bit where Frankenstein said he couldn't restore life where it had been before, only create it anew (though that could also mean he couldn't bring back the dead, only create a new person). I would advocate moving "bring back a dead loved one" to...

  • For a more benign spin on the talent agency, most supernaturals such a group would come across would be those looking for fodder or slaves - they might try to do right by their customers, while dealing with the monsters looking to exploit them (or they might exploit their customers a bit too, considering it fair payment for protecting them from a worse fate). Changelings might be among these threats, but the agency would also see a large number with a passionate grudge against exploitation in all its forms, and going after the same monsters as them. So they might be tied to Changeling not by...

  • Optional. The models wouldn't be a comapny unless they formed an agency of their own, and still wouldn't be evil even then, and it's hard to picture funeral homes or the Sunshine Securities idea as evil. I just thought that coming up with how industries other than medical or chemical would approach the Vigil within their lens was an interesting thing to spitball about.

    Interesting......

    The Bear Lodge one sounds good to me. Emphasises tracking and expertise.

    I'm not so sure about the Barret Commission one. The power they have seems like something that should always be "on." I think a modification of Friends and Neighbours might be more in order (perhaps from a thematic point, the similarity could be used to show how people from different walks of life are brought together by the Vigil). Maybe...

    replied to Witches
    Based on this, I think I second the recommendation of Second Sight. The Merits in Second Sight (and qualities granted by pacts in Inferno) are more discrete and disconnected from one another than the structured Mysteries, which makes it easier to tailor what an individual gets in response to their particular flavour of envy. Gnosis and Source wouldn't be too hard to import into them (second Sight Merits normally work via Willpower).

    The other side of jealousy could come into play as well: people want to keep what they have, be it power, wealth, people, or prestige, and can fall into...

  • I can't quite figure out this bito you mean the character achieves a Superlative Milestone and changes Refinement based on what they learned, or another character achieves the Milestone and the character you're talking about changes Refinement based on what they saw?

    In the first case, I would say no: the change in Refinement is bound up in what you learned and part of the same Milestone that provoked it (I would be receptive to arguments for upping the "ranking" of the Milestone, though).

    In the second case, I think it could be. Understanding others and...

  • I rather like that. Even better, "Vigilant Industries" might actually be good name for it.

    What if this were tied to Demon instead of Vampire? Rather than the technological side of demons, focus on the identity element. Because the fashion industry is frequently made out to be a meaningless whirl - riddled with false personas, sold souls, imagery that signifies nothing, and empty style over substance - and the Chronicles of Darkness, that might well be true. Undeniably true is that it will be an environment that breeds messy lives, whose owners may be very willing to...

    replied to Softening Mummy
    From another angle, they were born into a world of unprecedented technology, quantum leaps in advancement in both materials and mechanics, a profound revolution in communication, and concepts in common parlance that didn't exist a century before. The modern world may feel more familiar to them than any prior age, even if they don't quite remember or understand why....
