    replied to Welcome to Night Vale
    Just re-listened to the episode 67 [Best of?], and had an interesting thought about how the show uses shifting realities and (both comically and seriously) the Blood-Space War. I though of Mage: the Awakening and how using narratives like that to illustrate the scars and aftershocks of the Ascension War that's going on in the Supernal Realm and how it's so abstract from human comprehension yet profoundly effected by the very people who don't understand it. Plus the whole non-linear time thing is very Mage.

    Just sharing the inspiration.

  • I love the Saboture Agenda from Demon: the Descent's stereotype for Changelings. (Or was it the Destroyer?)

  • I have a thought experiment that may yield some insight into what I believe to be the crux of the issue being discussed here. And here it is:

    Four people each come into possession of a copy of Werewolf: the Apocalypse. Each one lives in a remote part of the world where there's little internet connectivity, and there is only one small hobby store in town that only has a smattering of second hand copies of tabletop roleplaying games at best. Never the less, these four people love the hobby and quickly World of Darkness becomes their favorit tabletop game to run with their friends. They...

    That's fantastic, i'm glad you got to play a game of Urban Shadows. I've been wanting to for some time but haven't got a chance due to my usual group having a more difficult time meeting up thanks to distance and work.

    How was using the Moves in actual play? Was is very fluid and not noticeable or does it have a bit of a different feel from how other horror or dark fantasy games usually run?

  • Love what you got for the Seers of the Throne, and happy to see that one of the player characters is at least on approachable terms with one of them.

    I suggest using this by having this Noah approach Rex on behalf of his Tetrarchy and offer a secret shadow alliance with him and the Diamond in order to destroy the Lord of Dust, who's actions are starting to endanger the operations of his Tetrarchy. That way the players and Consili are offered a unique opportunity to deal a decisive blow to the Seers, but by doing so strengthen another Tetrarchy. Plus the paranoia alone would definitly...

  • This is a fantastic setting you've made Axelgear.

    I am a bit curious about the 12 Seers of the Throne that are in the setting though. Mostly because they are my favorit Order, but also because they're usually great sources of conflict. Are they part of a single Tetrarchy that encompasses all of Australia? Or a Lesser Ministry that specifically has it's power base in the Provice of New South Wales? Do they have any of the People as contractors, they would never use the word patron after all , and if so do these entities have any allegiance to the Exarchs?

  • Regret is going to possibly fulfill the Introspective Condition, and just maybe his current Role as Chronicler as he sees the end result of Mark 5's vigilantly journey and possibly the start of Earth's. A passing of the torch between two "friends" who hug with their fists.

    Also, what could possibly go wrong? ^_^

Judging from the battlefield it was only a minor skirmish, and the look of sorrow an pain upon Mark 5's face confirmed that Scout must have...

    @EldritchMinister,

    Boycotting WW, and tragically OPP, is one of the few weapons we consumers have in are arsenal. Customer complaints and emails will only go so far, especially if it appears they've been ignored, unless the writer also has the conviction to stop supporting the offending company with their capital. WW hired Zak Smith for whatever reasons they did, and if they lose money because of it then they will think twice about exactly what their customer base is after in their products, and if not then they can chalk up the hire to a monetary success. Either way, the people will...

    Really?

    I wasn't really aware of the information about it's Kickstarter history, so I wasn't even sure what extra content was coming. My only experience with it has been as a present from a friend, so I completely understand your reservations about picking it up. I'd most likely have them too were I in your shoes.

    Just curious too now, what stuff is in the content they're supposed to release?

    Heck yes Night Vale has inspired my games! So far I cannot remember an instance after I became a fan of the Podcast where I haven't drawn some sort of inspiration from the series and it's sister shows, be it from mysteries, surrealist environments, character drama, or even just storytelling tone from Cecil himself.

    Also, once got to see the Investigators live show. It was freak'n awesome, plus it game me some fun ideas about interactive storytelling. ^_^

  • There's one question that, unless I misse it, hasn't been asked yet that I feel needs to be: Who are these Preludes for?

    They were marketed to be introductions to the world of Masquerade and Ascension for new players who've never heard of the setting before, and if so then what themes were gone over in the Preludes? How exactly did they sell VtM and MtAs? Taking all of the design decisions in the best possible light even, or at least the most liberal benefit of the doubt, what exactly was told by these stories?

  • Don't get me wrong, the Sabbat are a hooooot mess. But I believe that stems more from too many cooks spoiling the borth, or more locally some players seeing the Sabbat as license to enact their darkest absurdist murder fantasies or just use it as a way to add crossover elements to VtM.

    Because, and correct me if I'm wrong, the Sabbat were originally intended to be a shadowy organization that may or may not exist. There was little to no information about them, what there was often contradicted itself, and ultimately their form or purpose was entirely up to the ST's control. The only...

  • LokiRavenSpeak, I have heard few people sum up the essence of WtA better than you did right here. I tip my hat to you.

    Also, another acceptable answer is: The superhero's superpower is social working.

    Regret grabbed onto the arm that Scout was using to touch his shoulder. He recognized the look Scout had, he knew it to mean that he needed his concentration. He also recognized what he was saying to Earth. Mark 5 was definitly near by. Most likely where the sound of gunshots were coming from. Regret HaTeD the sound of gunshots....

    This ^

    This so much. This is why the Sanctified and Acolytes are my favorite Covenants in Requiem. If only the Sabbat's theme was more universally this, but the laughably shock horror really really reeealllly breaks my suspension of disbelief when it comes to the Sabbat....
