    The boundary/barrier does look how I always visualized Pure Chaos.

  • My impression from the printed game materials was that Jamal was of 5th generation (like Tariq) and not a methuselah. More analagous to the Founders and Dastur Anosh rather than multi-millennial progeny of antediluvians like Ur-Shugli, Japheth, and Baba Yaga, or even the Weeping Master. He lost a fight to Dracula, after all. I don't think killing him is necessarily that impressive a feat for something in Ur-Shugli's weight class.

    That said, Ur-Shugli appeared to be focused on battle, whether by physical might or sorcery. I'd think that would trump Japheth's more balanced and varied...

  • I think "Hollywood" is a bit big to be considered a single domain. Hell, given the number of tourists who pass through it might serve as the Rack rather than a seedier area of the city.

    Hollywood Hotels and Apartments with Yamashiro and the Yamashiro Night Market strike me as a good domain for a vampire interested in Asian culture. And the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel would be good for either someone interested in showbiz history or in the ghosts that haunt it.

  • That's true, I guess clan culture may owe something to Viking traditions, but it really doesn't prevent individual members from being of any faith. And Gangrel may be the most diverse clan in terms of who they select for the embrace.

  • Well, any sort of vampire could theoretically develop it if clan isn't that important to your concept. Lasombra were most closely associated with Western religion and religious organizations, Malkavians can fit the mad prophet in the wilderness stereotype, Nosferatu are good for hiding in catacombs and bell towers, etc.

    Gangrel, Tremere, Tzimisce, and Followers of Set are the four who seem inappropriate to me—either irreligious, pagan individualists, or cultishly devoted to a god of darkness whose sphere of influence doesn't lend itself to the way True Faith operates.

    Isn't Malfeas supposed to be arranged as a series of concentric spherical shells with cities on each side of each layer except the outermost, the green sun in the center and shining unobstructed through them all, Cecelyne somehow connected to each exit point of the outermost layer despite herself being an endless flat plain, and the rest of the Yozis' world-bodies as landscape features squirreled away somewhere within (possibly in their own pocket dimensions or otherwise folding space so they're bigger than the layer that contains them)? When I try to visualize all that my brain yells "OUCH!...

    Even for the Second Age that doesn't seem all that impressive a construction feat. Hasn't Wu-Jian been depicted as being composed of stacked apartments many, many stories tall, like Kowloon Walled City?

    I mean, we have a canon example of someone producing a hungry ghost without actually dying to do so. That gives me the impression the process is a bit flexible and probably has a fair amount of edge cases.

  • And here's Unfortunate Kelp in a scene with panoramic background. I may tweak this one some more after revisiting, but I'm happy enough with it at the moment to display it.

    I wonder if the incursion of Cemunian's mock Creation resulted in some elements of that reality jumping ship before the Unconquered Sun torched it? I recall something about its skies becoming visible to the inhabitants of Creation as the two were about to collide, which makes me think of the influence of alien planets slipping in before they and their native reality were struck down.

  • I only became interested when Lioness referred to one of the prior Lunar foils as mega creepy—given that I came to the game line via Infernals, that appears to be the surest way to get my buy-in for a given concept.

  • I've yet to play in a game, but I'm pretty jonesed about the gameline. I've really grown fond of the setting as I've read more about it, the core rules have been interesting and engaging to approach from a theoretical standpoint, the new material in Arms of the Chosen and the individual bestiary/antagonist releases is awesome, and the developers are a delight to interact with. It's also inspired me to spend a fair amount of time creating art for characters, which is a good measure of my enthusiasm for a RPG. Even if I never end up playing in a live game, I consider my Exalted purchases to have...

  • Tiamat's write up in Diablerie Britain also referenced her statistics being the recently-awoken version that would improve dramatically with time to feed and shake the cobwebs off.

    I thought non-Nosferatu vitae would just tend to make animal ghouls robust examples of their species, not cause gigantism or other visible mutational effects?

  • I think there is some room for Ur-Shugli's true nature being germane to PC level characters because he's setting policy for the Assamite clan as a whole upon awakening. That probably looks a little different depending on whether he's fanatically loyal to Haquim's original vision for the clan or a secret demon-worshipping mole who wants to lead it into Hell, even if Assamite player characters are never going to actually meet him in person.

    You know that other thread where you recently worried about your post coming off as too condescending?

    I seem to recall one of the writers saying the kilomote pool wasn't necessarily uniform among Yozi; for example Cytheria might have order(s) of magnitude more Essence.

  • Mithras had stats in that original A World of Darkness book back in the mid 90s, and if the traits changed any in more modern publications like V:VA it wasn't substantial.

    Presence 5 alone would make it extraordinarily difficult for even a whole pack of werewolves to fight him; it'd be a struggle for each of them to so much as growl at him, never mind actually attack....

    Do their kinfolk get read in on various Wyrm lore and such in a way that would be advantageous, or are they just terrified menial slaves?
