  • The Bane(s) of the Enticers

    Is it written anywhere what kind of Bane needs to possess a human for the human to turn into an Enticer?

  • Other Paths might be taught as Primary to a Tremere because for some reason(s) the Path of Blood isn't suitable or available. For example, the book(s) on the Path of Blood at the Tremere Chantry got lost or stolen. Another case - someone might be totally inept in regards to the Path of Blood, while showing aptitude for another.

    The Tremere teacher might have some mystical theory, that a newly initiated Tremere, if they begin their Thaumaturgical development on a Path different from the Path of Blood, will manifest some special abilities, or reach greatness in some way. This might...

    64) The local Cultists of Ecstasy offer to teach the secrets of using True Magic to shapeshift into aquatic animals. They invite any and all Tradition members to their Chantry.
    Something is extremely off - this Cabal of Ecstatics have never been known to possess more than a bathtub at any of of their places; nor have they been known to go to the city's swimming hall; nor have they ever talked about spending any time at the seaside, or next to a river.

  • 327) Syndicate's World [Quiet ; Conjunctional use of two or more of: Prime, Mind, Correspondence, Entropy] This Quiet affects True Mages who are either Technocrats or have reasons to think that the Syndicate has a positive attitude towards them – or those that hold hopes that the Syndicate might be friendly towards them. Naturally, members of the Syndicate are the most vulnerable to this Quiet.

    This bus connection? Probably arranged by the Syndicate; for convenience, and as a favor. The bus driver, wearing a tie and listening happily to the radio? Surely a Provider of the Syndicate....perhaps...

    Is there anything that makes these Nephandi that you described any different from Infernalists?...

    I think it should be three; considering that the Vaulderie was developed as a mean to break and/or replace the Blood Bond, it makes some amount of sense that a Vaulderie wouldn't work with a pair of Kindred....

    Or the Nephandi can be treated and presented as a faction of dark True Mages, who do delve into - but not at all to the point of exclusivity - matters like sadism and suffering, and sometimes use them as Foci. What sets them apart as a group/faction is also their stance on mundane humans; and their attitude towards possible interactions with beings like demons, for example.
    The inclination to 'destroy the world' is not needed to make them deep; nor does it make them more interesting.

    As it is written now in much of Mage: The Ascension material, the Nephandi have lots of sentences...

  • The first hunter leaves an "In case something happens to me..." envelope containing all the werewolf-related information in the hands of his best friend, who then does the same with his adult son...and so on, resulting in there always being an informed and motivated hunter to menace the character.
    Though at some point in the chain of left envelopes and pen drives the current hunter might become demoralized.


    One could use the hunter groups from CoD's Hunter: The Vigil....

  • 323) An Insidious Breakdown [Paradox Flaw ; Prime and Mind] True Mages who seek to impose on others their world views and viewpoints, while being unsure of them, risk being affected by this Paradox Flaw.
    While speaking to other persons the affected True Mage starts forgetting to mention main concepts, arguments, conclusions, elaborations et al. in regards to the outlook(s) that they tried to impose; missing and forgetting to say not only single words, but whole sentences and paragraphs. They also acquire a strong tendency - that can increase - to not notice this; perceiving and regarding...

    Going with this, what would you call the coin itself?



    Doesn't seem so at all to me. Have you read anything in World of Darkness that says or suggests otherwise?


    Perhaps it could be forgiven, but I think and feel it definitely shouldn't be.



    It is much worse than this. Considering Senex is a member of the Euthanatoi, he is the True Mage equivalent of a snake oil salesman with a group of very dangerous and possibly hostile thugs standing next to him - threatening anyone who speaks against his peddling of the snake oil, and...

  • What about Gaia, and the Triat? Very, very few (near to none, I think?) Fera actually interact with them directly. Yet the Garou base - or try to base - their actions on their for love Gaia. Isn't this faith?


    Would you say that the Ananasi have no faith in Queen Ananasa because they interact with her personally? I think they do; unless they are one of the ones that don't follow Queen Ananasa....

    Stating that this - protect and help humanity - is their core mission statement misses the part when in the name of 'safety' they label and treat all that is non-scientific as something to be eliminated (and they aim to define what 'scientific' means). They call supernaturals "Reality Deviants" - including mystic True Mages. You might see someone like Secret Agent John Courage as one of the "good Technocrats" ; but from another perspective by remaining - even if partly - a Technocrat loyal to the Technocracy he is just another hostile human, and science, supremacist; the only...

    Can this really be said at all to be the Technocracy's mission statement? After all, this mission statement of protect and enlighten is shared by many organizations, including many mundane human groups. Saying that this is the Technocracy's mission statement ignores their other core agendas, and the goals of the individual Conventions. And to me it feels like whitewashing the Technocracy, to an extent....

  • How does the existence of the Masquerade relate to the supposed capability of this new inquisition to "kill all supernaturals" ?


    How many?


    Last time I checked the world, if primarily controlled by anyone, is primarily controlled by Kindred Methuselahs, Kindred Elders, and True Mages groups - and perhaps other Nightfolk. (I don't know about the Fera, for example.) What makes a mundane businessmen or a politician capable at all to be a 'mover and shaker' compared to the Nightfolk?


    Are they motivated by religion?

    I'd imagine the Revenant creation process involves constantly feeding the Ghouls / future Revenants lots of Vitae and having them use it to exercise vampiric powers. So regenerating wounds, using Disciplines, and whatever else that can serve to deepen their vampiric natures. Perhaps it also involves them living a nocturnal existence ; or living according to a Kindred Clan Weakness.
