    I could see adding an "addiction" flaw to it on top of the risk of madness/derangement. The rush of the power could be quite addictive despite the nasty side effect of he Torment, Hell not the first drug to have a nasty down.

    So they would try to get more and more and more. Maybe even becoming thrall or a hunter for steady(er) fix....

    Couple small typos in Living in Paris Trou Noir (No 'e') and Les Vautours ( remove the extra 'o' before 't').

    I love the living in Paris section. Good day of the various factions and the general bleakness of the city. Clearly a lot of issues and barely contained conflicts.


    Living in the the court is quite interesting. It does have a certain uniqueness not encountered in most court....

    That's true, but here's the catch 21. By not handing illegal immigrant over to CBSA, they are preventing the enforcement of, at the very least, A41 of IRPA - Inadmissibility for contravention of the Act (and possibly other grounds for inadmissibility). So it's basically asking the cops to a) protect illegals against proper Canadian authority and b) having to deal with that issue and possibly something bigger immigration enforcement wise rather than having more competent authority do so. They are busy enough they don't like it.

    The other catch, it encourage illegal immigration because...

    Mini typo: Guardian would be, in French: Gardien.

    I like the organization, built similar to the Royal Court with similar position. A nice imagery of the "Décadence de la Cour Royale". I'm half expecting some Changeling "Sans-Culottes" to launch a revolution.

    replied to Sell me Wraith The Oblivion
    Got to run to work but to get started,

    Wraith is about personal horror. It's about trying to finish unfinished business/resolving your fetters from beyond the World...and if they get destroyed, well you are screwed. It's about controlling your Darker instanct (Spectre) that will take over And manifest itself eventually, hopefully only for a short time.

    The Underworld also have his own politics with various faction in more or less open state of conflict and travelling is all but safe due to the Tempest, only a few groups can nacpvigate it safely.

    Nice write-up so far. I really like it. Are you planning to do the GTA or stick to Toronto proper?

    Seeing that the Paris motto means « Il est battu par les flots, mais ne sombre pas », I would go with: « Il est battu par les flots et sombre » (She was tossed by the wave and sinks) to respect the Latin verb tenses. Otherwise you could go with: « Il a été battu par les flots, et a sombré » (She was tossed by the waves and sank) but would require some change on the Latin verb tenses to match (But that's just the FLS/FLÉ teacher in me...feel free to ignore me).

    But that aside, I really like it. It's a very interesting take on Paris which is different that what you would usually see.

  • 1st ed mechanic had a few things that got lost over the years, especially how some discipline work, I wouldn't mind using those for nostalgia sakes.

    sounds like a really interesting premises and PbP might work a bit better with my schedule than trying to find a group around here (shift work in an operational environment)....

    That's actually pretty cool mechanics and quite handy. Definitely something to use even in Classic WoD.

    On a side thought, I'm assuming the translation guide was created/updated to 2nd edition rules correct?

    From what I've understood from my reading, the 2nd edition core rulebook, pretty much combines the 1st edition core rulebook with the God-Machine Chronicle...and Demon the Descent would be strongly rooted in it.

    Sounds about right?...

    replied to Questions about Heirs to Hell
    Thank you, everyone was quite helpful and this it's great information. A

    s mentioned by ElvesofZion since it's to port over to Demon the Fallen, I might be able to go by the translation book and corebook/appendix as the core mechanic will be Classic WoD.

    But, if I get fully into DtD, or if too much is missing yo translate with ease, I'll get either the 1st ed or the 2nd ed core rule book.

    It might be the case, however in the Corebook description, both on DriveThruRPG and Indie Press Revolution, it is explicitly stated the Word of Darkness Rule Book is required.

    In addition, on DriveThruRPG, both the Demon starter kit and The Demon translation kit include the World of Darkness Rule Book

    I'm sure you are right, DtD could be usable alone with minimal fuss, but by the official description, It's not a stand-alone product.

    ElvesofZion

    That is a fair point. I might hold off on getting it and see how it goes. Worse case, it could be part...

    She'll need 5+ successes, anything less will be a waste of this power which would be better used in getting first and second dot on (Dark) Arcanoi she doesn't possess but would be helpful.

    the language of the power is quite clear: you gain the first done upon success (and not "gain a +1 dot increasing success") and for every additional dot you which to gain you need 2 extra successes to unlock it....

    That's unfortunate that Demon does not have a stand alone corebook.

    Since I don't have any NWoD or CofD core rule, it look like I'll need to get it too.

    thank you al, It's really helpful....

    replied to A few questions about balance
    They don't really compare. Cross-splat balance has always been a big headache for a fair number of ST. Some are more or less on par so It's doable. Any specific splat in mind? It might be easier to provide accurate feedback if we knew which one you were considering combining.

    No, you cannot be two (or more) supernatural at the same time (with the exception of the Abomination, but that never ends well). So no Vampiric Changeling for example.

    On one hand, Magick can be more powerful, depending on your Sphere and their rating, but you always have to worry about Paradox....

    Good to know, might be handy as a later purchase though, but focus on the more important book at first.

    Edit: on DriveThruRPG, the description of the Corebook indicate this:
    If I understand correctly, I do need to get the Chronicle of Darkness Book, but I Don't need to worry about the God-machine Chronicle (which to my understanding is pretty much mostly included in the CofD book). Correct?...

    @Stupid Loserman

    That really helps clarify things a lot and it does look like the Nephilim might be a bit easier to port over "themewise" than the Demon-blooded, although, as you said, add enough pressure and we're in business.

    So book-wise: Heirs of Hell, the Storyteller Guide, the Corebook (and I guess the Chronicle of Darkness base book too) and the translation guide would be enough.

    any added value for the Demon-blooded/Nephilim in getting Flowers of Hell or not really?
