    I'm not quite sure what form it would take, but a Silver Screen style Shard for Beast would be pretty cool. Playing up classic monster movie tropes but from the monster's perspective. Maybe some mechanical flairs to help capture the feeling of those old movies. Something like that.

  • Here here,

    Couldn't agree more with the sentiments being presented here. Plus this upcoming weekend is my tabletop gaming group's two year anniversary for our own Beast: the Primordial Chronicle, so the reveal of the two new Families and new Hunger will generate much hype at our get together.

  • Don't forget about that tasty cultural narrative too. More than any of the other splats (besides arguably Mages) both the People and the Children of the Dark Mother have a mythology that is similar enough amongst most of their society to serve as a sense of cultural identity and purpose. No matter where you come from, or who your Tribe or Family is, the Uratha and Ansega are still the children of Father Wolf, and the Begotten are still the mythical spawn of the Mother of Monsters. And that can be a very powerful unifying force....

  • I have a much more simpler answer to why the Supernatural Community might come into conflict with Beasts, one in which both the most humane (the ones who still identify with their Life and actively try to minimize the damage done by their Legend and Hunger) and heinous (the Strix kinship making mother f$&kers) of Begotten might qualify: Beasts are the ultimate interlopers.

    They can practically go anywhere. Some can tell exactly where you are at all times if they've seen you once. Some can know your dreams, desires, or darkest secrets just with a glance. They seem to attract a...

  • I feel the most likely allies of the Begotten are those that understand their dualistic nature best: Werewolves & Sin-Eaters.

    All three are tied to a tangible hidden layer of reality. Each one has to balance who they were with what they are now. Each one creates a cultural narrative that helps them cope with their new senses, powers, and hungers. And each one before their transformation had some tie as a mortal to said mystical plane of reality.

    Granted, many of those things apply to a lot of the other splats too. However, unlike the often jarring process of becoming...

    Well, canon might be a bit too strong of a term. The Testament of Longinus is meant to be a physical prop to be used by STs and players in a very similar way the Book of Nod was used in VtM. The information is supposed to be in world accurate, although the book is written as a compilation done by several Kindred of the Sanctified and one of the Invictus.

    As for if it's still valid for 2nd Edition, well that's entirely up to the ST. That being said though...there is a Lancea et Sanctum specific story in Secrets of the Covenants that's entirely about a real Easter Egg that's in the...

  • Allow me to clarify: The Begotten community at large would probably recognize two distinct supernatural societies who are both very similar in terms of their levels of power and their insatiable appetite for knowledge and discovery. Overall they would be probably be held in similar regard by the Hive communities at large, and only individual Children and Broods who form kinship with one or the other would better comprehend the greater nuances between both kinds of supernatural beings.

    My point being that by making the general concensus more ambiguous about Genii and Mages then it...

  • Honestly the Begotten probably wouldn't see that big of a difference between Genii and Mages. Both would be the cousins who go off to college and both try to fit everything into their own well educated but limited world view.

    Just one builds robots in their garage and the other builds ritual circles in their backyard, and as anyone who's seen rival college students go at it heaven forbid if you guess incorrectly which one is which. (Trick question though, both could fit into either gameline. That's kinda the point I'm trying to make when it comes to the Children's perspective.)

    I do apologies if this thread ended up wasting your time. That was never my intention, in fact at first it truly was meant to look at the fan game from a critical but unbiased lens. My original critiques were relatively critical but fair up until a certain point, an that was because much like a sea shell that washed ashore from the Ocean Oroboros in the Anima Mundi the more I read an looked at the game the more and more harder it was to remain unbiased as I was filled with mounting anger and disgust. Looking back over it now after having sufficiently cooled off my final critical...
