  • The first campaign I played in had "backroom" deals being made by vampires at the city's minor league hockey arena. (Most of that first group of us were hockey fans, so it was a natural.)

  • Adding to the contradictory published info, Apophis/Apep is also put forth as a currently extant and active deity/spirit in Midnight Circus. Now, that book is pretty far down the list of ones I'd like to quote to argue canon, but a lot of stuff about Set and Egyptian mythology in general has very different facts and interpretations depending on which game line and which individual book you look at.

    I always visualized Coven as K. Todd Freeman.

    Since 300 hit theaters, Mithras has been Gerard Butler in my mind's eye.

  • For what it's worth, just buying the first three dots of the Path of Conjuring would be as or less expensive in XP than creating an elder level discipline to do the same thing, and imho that is a more appropriate power level.

  • I'd say that would be an excellent backstory for the Shattered Avatar Merit (and likely the Flashbacks Flaw as well).

  • I've never had anything purporting to be the monotheistic God appear in a game I've run, but I'm sure if I did I would have it manifest as George Burns.

  • If you have the V20 Black Hand book, you might want to take a look at the section on the Idran and their archaic sorcery. The founders of the craft turned themselves into deathless beings equivalent to liches, presumably using the Pillars noted therein though the specifics of that feat aren't spelled out.

  • Quite a few characters from the original Red List book when some of them formed an alliance and tried to take over our campaign city. My character personally administered the coup de grĂ¢ce to Angelo and Kementiri in the course of the game (the latter in a surprise attack that the storyteller really shouldn't have allowed to surprise her, given her Auspex and puppetmaster savvy).

    We did not kill Valerius Maior, but another PC's interception of his casket at an airport and giving him his walking papers after lackeys exposed him to a slightly-less-than-lethal amount of sunshine was the...

  • Would something like the creature that ate and became Dr. Pretorius in From Beyond be a workable depiction of a Nexus Crawler? Otherdimensional and only sometimes occupying the same frame of reference as the main characters, occasionally able to influence events and objects from the other side even when not tangibly present, adopts a somewhat comprehensible appearance and personality to interact when first materialized but is revealed to be something far more alien underneath, clearly takes a toll on the sanity of onlookers and inspires out-of-character behavior and physical mutations, is revealed...

  • I seem to recall Gorool initially being described as the biggest, most powerful of the Malfeans. But I believe that was retconned away as the Neverborn gained prominence and got exported as the Big Bads behind the Big Bads of other WW games.

  • I'd likely stat her as either a child mage, changeling, or a normal human benefiting from blessings by some supernatural on behalf of her deceased mother. She'd have interacted with Baba Yaga ages ago and passed into legend to more closely conform to Russian folklore.

    As for the figure from the infamously awful adventure in Night of Prophecy, I prefer to avoid that whole mess like the plague.

  • Could it be the struggle against the Excrucians in the game Nobilis? I've not played or even read its rules, but what you've described here puts be in mind of secondhand accounts I've heard of that game....

    Is it perhaps the final fall of the larger Roman Empire, which had provided order and social framework to a large segment of the world's population for centuries? Not a case of the event in itself causing the maelstrom so much as being the last straw that triggered it after it had been building for ages?

    As for the 6th Maelstrom's cause, I thought it might be less the nukes themselves and more a combo of the number of people the Week of Nightmares killed plus big gateways to the Yin, Yang, and Yomi worlds being opened in close proximity and bleeding together before the nukes disrupted...

    To be fair regarding Baba Yaga, witchcraft is her jam and since her stats appeared in an early Werewolf book, White Wolf represented that solely with "Thaumaturgy 9." I can easily see her with another 30 or 40 dots in blood sorcery paths. And that Shadow Curtain she managed to create is the grandest display of supernatural power I've seen by a vampire other than an antediluvian.

  • A possible approach to one might be the evil force from the Evil Dead movies. It reanimated corpses , animated rapey trees in the woods, animated taxidermied animal heads and other household objects in order to laugh and taunt, possessed living people and discrete parts of their bodies, created demonic duplicates, and caused a rain of blood.

  • If the angel is that powerful, what are the odds of it answering a PC's petition directly rather than sending some lesser minion to answer it?

    In one of the first VtM game sessions I played in, we found ourselves facing off against a werewolf and my character used Thaumaturgy to enhance her generation and boost her physical stats enough to make a fight of it. I hadn't reckoned on the consequences of quickly emptying her blood pool, and failed a frenzy roll. On the plus side, we found out crinos form is not well designed for dislodging a small figure with superhuman strength from the middle of one's back. Cue lots of thrashing around, howling, shrieking, and one of the other characters yelling "unhand that defenseless child!"...

    I didn't think stepping sideways was supposed to be an option out past the Horizon (unless one was on a planet/Shard Realm). Different groups conceptualize the Deep Umbra in different ways, but it's all one thing out that far, whether you think of it as outer space, Etherspace, or what have you.
