    That argument sounds convincing to someone with no interest in playing an Andean (or otherwise non-Iremite) mummy, but is basically the same argument as those who said there was no need for a Mummy game at all because you could just play an Osirian or Mekhet, or no need for a Demon game because you could play a vampire, or no need for playable ghosts because you could play a Sineater (none of those are hypothetical - they're all arguments I've actually heard first hand). But since I don't want anything non-Iremite in the core either, I'll leave it there....

  • A Warden (in the Immortals sense) as a good relationship with the werewolf packs whose territories intersect with her protectorate, and has become a peacemaker of sorts among them, to the point where the packs are beginning to merge into a larger body. All parties have reaped the benefits with calm and well maintained territories.

    It's also resulted in one of the pack leaders becoming the Apex of the local Hive. The former Apex, an Eshmaki Predator isn't happy about the implication of being eclipsed as the Dream's image of a powerful hunter, and wants to kill the "usurper."...

    I don't think I'd make Dorian Grey a Remade at all - the painting seems very at odds with the body horror nature of Deviant (I'd use Promethean's mythos for it - the picture was a singular act of genius born out of Basil Hallward's obsession with Dorian, and even Dorian was taken by surprise when its power began to manifest - plus the effects Dorian had on people map quite well to those of the Galatea).

    Griffyn... I'd say his Invisibility is both a stealth power (because he can use it for his benefit) and a physical scar (because he can't turn it off even when it would help). He got...

  • In the Deviant at GenCon thread, Dave Brookshaw said that Variations are grouped by Clade - along with a few universal ones - though you can take a Variation for another Clade if you can think of a way to change its appearance to suit. Scars are grouped by physical, mental, and social, and can be combined freely with Variations.

    "Types," which I'm guessing are Clades from the above referred to are Invasive, Cephalist, Chimera, and Atypic (which is getting renamed).

    All incarnations? Does that mean all instances of awakening as a mummy, or does it include your mortal life too? Still, it ties in with the idea that the Rite broke time in some fashion. But the question that jumps out at me most was whether this was an intended effect.

    Unified... does that mean they're being incorporated into Mummy's mythos, as beings of Sekhem? Most of them seem like they could fit in reasonably well (Patchworks I'd rather see plugged into Promethean). Reliquary is something I wouldn't mind seeing unified with Mummy as well.

    How prominent a part...

  • Cruac is based, among other things, on the image of blood as a conduit between the earthly and divine. While common, that idea isn't universal, and in other spiritual schemas it might be considered a barrier. There's probably room for a blood sorcery with a similar naturalistic and spirit-based attitude to Cruac, but which regards blood as part of a vampire's earthly existence rather than a route to what's beyond (yes vampires are supernatural, but their supernature is very material).

  • Where do Lithopedia and Kigan come from?

    My first thought is twofold. Either don't worry too much about connecting some of these entities to existing otherworlds - a collection of distinct vampire-specific spirits could get kinda clumsy. Or connect them to one another - maybe they're all (or mostly) from the same realm as the strix - and what that realm hungers for can be gotten in more ways than the strix's vitae hunger.

  • Hm. The geist may not be able to control things on a metaphysical level, but the host could become psychologically broken down to the point where they no longer have the will to resist the geist's impulses. Could a geist accomplish that, or would it take outside circumstances?...

    So can we describe it as the clade-that-isn't? Ie its members aren't particularly more similar to each other than they are to the other clades?

    If so, what about Anagens? (Anagenisis as distinct from cladogenesis)...

    Perhaps it's more ambiguous. You know when your actions are right and wrong in their eyes, and you know they're watching - but is this knowledge communicated by them, or part of your nature - where's the line between their presence and your sense of duty?...

    replied to Las mysteres question
    I personally think dropping this element would be better - it doesn't really make sense that a group practicing a screwed up understanding of Voodoo, an angel cult, heralds of the Benevolent Space Brothers, dedicated servants of the family ancestors, and those empowered by the spirits of the roads to guard travellers would all think they're the same thing because their powers are similar. Instead, make Les Mysteres a type of conspiracy rather than a single, even loose, one - the writeup describes the screwed up understanding of Voodoo version, but include a sidebar about how there are similar...

  • The same supplement could do both - the Deceived one did. Both Sineaters and Tyrants present a not-too-common twist on the possession theme - one where both the possessor and host are better off developing an amenable relationship with each other, and one where it's the host that subjugates the possessor. I'd be interested to material for playing both (but I'm glad the core book will focus on Sineaters alone)....
