    I don't think an object should need to be used for its intended purpose, but should be handled or viewed to get the benefit from it.

  • Great! Any other Lineages to do?...

  • Very good. I've always thought Beast makes an oddly good game for living relatively normal lives. The actions that can feed a Horror range from, if a human was doing them, to things that would be punished, reprimanded, tolerated, accepted, or even lauded. To the Primordial Dream, it's all part and parcel of the same thing, but reconciliation with their human past can give a Beast guidance on channeling their Hunger in ways they're used to thinking of as positive.

  • What would you say creating life is an act of?...

  • Ah! Perfect. Life is pain, because everything worthwhile is born through pain and tribulation. So creating life is an act of surrender - both the creator and created will allow that pain to take them, but their suffering will buy something great. (Kinda poignant in that we only know them through their end, but that end was also responsible for the birth of a new Lineage).

    A Lineage that arose from a disaster and persisted for a few decades at most? "Life is emptiness, and creating life is an act of futility" sums them up pretty well. Did any of them redeem?)

    And especially the Maiden's Blood Sisterhood. They despise abuse. which is at the core of how Deviants are made - and move in academic and high-class circles, which puts then close to things the conspiracies are likely to value (and thus come into contact with them)....

  • Thankyou.

    That's cool. In the second case, then creating life is a dream, just as life itself is, yes?

    ​Riffing off of wyrdhamsters suggestion, "Life is truth," perhaps? The ultimate expression of all things, good and bad, delightful and painful? Creating life could be an act of... maybe insight, or maybe receptivity to insight.


    The two Lineages I'd created in the past were the Dumuz and the Delphine. The Dumuz were a kind of sibling Lineage to the Tammuz that played up the grief and loss and trying to bring someone back elements of both...

    replied to Deviant: the Renegades
    I'm with Ruger here: Mortal Remains is a Hunter supplement based on a subsequent splat, not crossover material. Having said that, a "Contagion supplement" is also something I would like to see for any lines that come after it. (And we don't know if Hunter 2nd Edition will be getting anything like Mortal Remains)....

  • Lineages Based on "What is Life?"

    Something I mentioned in another thread was that - while the book didn't end up going too far into this - one of the developers suggested looking at the Lineages as answers to the question of what life is and where it comes from, such as lightning for the Frankensteins. Looking a bit further at the concept (and refining it a little from the last time I posted this list), you could see the Lineages as:

    Frankensteins: Life is a spark - an ineffable something extra that transforms unliving matter into living. To create life is therefore a quest - it might be a magical, scientific,...

  • A fairly good guideline I've come across is "Would a regular human have misgivings about going in there without an invitation? If so, it blocks a vampire." That probably means an occupied hotel room would be blocked, but not a lobby or a bar.


    There was some discussion on a Dresden Files forum about what kind of buildings would have thresholds that hamper supernatural beings. The metaphysics of the Dresden Files is a bit different - essentially magical stuff works via a collective psychic sense among people that it ought to (not belief that it does, though that helps,...

    replied to Dominatrix Haunt
    I like that one.


    More generally, I think a Nosferatu dom might have a tendency to seem red-flaggy - like they always give off an air that they're not going to keep to their clients' limits or respect safewords. But it seems likely to me that such an air would seem like a plus to a client who knows it's an illusion - so they might have trouble attracting new custom, but their existing customer base just thinks they act the part very well (assuming the vampire is scrupulous about that stuff, and one would assume they are if they want it as a source of income).

    replied to On 2e Ghoul Families
    Half-Damned doesn't described the families from Ghouls in any detail, though it refers to them all in passing (and the Alley-Men a bit more than ithat). The mechanics of making a ghoul family haven't really changed (in other words, they're still sparse) - but the tone of the writing makes it sound a bit easier and thus families more common....

  • In order... Reconciliation first, because a lot of people have trouble seeing it as something Beasts could even attempt (also it interests me). Mythology. Dark Mother/ Dream and Jung. Heroes. Lessons.

    For another hack, I might suggest Othering. As distinct from marginalisation or oppression - the powerful are protected from marginalisation and oppression, but they can still be othered. And in ways that go beyond the direct hatred and violence of Heroes - there was a thread a while back on monster tamers, or you could imagine Beauties who try to save (or fetishise) Beasts, or...
