  • ​There might not be... but there absolutely should be. That's exactly how the Glass Walkers should keep track of Renown. An app running on a fetish smartphone that constantly monitors his/her relative renown (little "r") amongst the spirits at large. And (tongue-in-cheek) should be displayed in precisely the same abstraction terms as in-game on the character sheet.

    ​Because there should absolutely be a scene where the pack slips away from a burning Pentex warehouse and as they're sneaking away, there's a loud ringtone. Everybody, pissed off, stops and turns to look at the...

  • ​I think Brickleberry would work best as the "National Park" section of Wolfhome.

    ​Actually, now that I think about it, Mr. Pickles' town would work great as pocket-realm vaguely associated with Malfeas -- a representation of what the Black Spirals want to turn all of human society into as part of their master plan to usher in the Apocalypse. Either that or there's a door somewhere in the Temple Obscura to it and it serves as nothing more than a Black Spiral Ragabash "amusement park"....

  • I can totally see Mr. Pickles as a Lupus BSD -- using the Child of Gaia Gift Domestic Seeming to con everyone into thinking he's a dog. Also, I don't see it as this family of Black Spiral Kin -- I think the entire town is a bunch of Black Spiral Kin. Alternately, the town works great as a farcical representation of what Red Talons (or even just Lupus in general) view Humanity to be.

    Also note that Sept of the Hollow Heart sits on top of what (prior to Golgol's ill-advised invasion) was Matua's Den Realm. Since Atahualpa got pissed (and corrupted) and went over to the other side, it's always possible that Matua had a pathstone there and Atahualpa has the "keys" so to speak, to open it up....

    Well, if this guy was Garou, I'd never have even floated the idea... Gotta have the maximum Glory award, after all.

    ​I've suddenly got this image in my mind of a pack's Galliard at a moot gloriously telling the tale of throat-punching the frenzied wereraven... and some Cliath Theurge stands up and quizzically asks why they didn't just use a gold ring or something if it was for a material component. And the pack's Galliard just deflates in front of the whole sept because none of them had thought of that.
    "Well, ummmm..."...

  • One twist could be that he had some obscure connection to Abnatha-The-Laughing-One, and somehow found out (or figured out) how to use the Silent Strider Gift or Rite (or whatever it was) that lets them devour the knowledge of someone by eating their brains.

    ​Or better yet, if he's hunting Fera, that Gift allows him to begin to absorb some of their powers... and the more Fera he consumes, the more of the powers he gets (or the stronger those powers become). Sort of like a new kind of Skin Dancer threat.

    I think introducing Fera into anything involving the Garou is fraught with peril. It can work with a single pack of PCs, but the Amazon War is a big deal with over a hundred Garou warriors at a minimum. Now, supposedly Golgol finally kissed and made up with the Balam... but it never really went into detail how exactly they resolved the little issue of the Garou stealing the Balam Den Realms and turning them into caerns. Presumably they're still holding Hollow Heart and Sky River. That coupled with the Garou going around murdering Balam whenever they could find them for some 20 odd years, makes...

    Dumb question:

    ​If your guy needs "something connected to Helios" for a magic spell or ritual, why exactly does it need to be a shapeshifter? Helios is a spirit (admittedly a Celestine, but still ultimately a spirit). With Helios, there's almost no limit to what could be considered spiritually "connected to Helios". A gold ring, a poster of a "smiley-face" sun, a picture of the sun, a dead insect you burned to death with a magnifying glass, a photovoltaic panel...

  • ​My problem with Garou morality is this (I mentioned this earlier in another post): The imperative to battle the Wyrm is a part of their religious fanaticism, and fails to take into account all variables. Now I know that the above example is just pulling random numbers out of the air, but let's actually look at it for a second. The 10,000 fomori per year is not supported by the text. It's explicitly stated that 99% of what Pentex does is in fact above-board (the other 1% being the really worrisome stuff). Much of what Pentex does is just camouflage for that other 1% as well as a huge cash cow....

    Although it should be noted that Metis with the Metamorph Merit can shapeshift from birth (Fengy from Sept of the Green is named as a specific example). Guardians of the Caerns, page 105....

  • This entire premise should offend every fiber of my soul...

    But it has style.

    And honestly, if that shit were to happen anywhere, it would have to be Vegas....

    Okay, so here's my little pet peeve (and I live in the Bay Area, so I get to see this same basic mindset in the REAL world, so I'd love to see the Garou get kicked in the nuts at some point by ignoring it):

    The Garou hate the environmental destruction brought about by industry -- the overtly Wyrm-ish stuff like Pentex are only the worst offenders. But they completely ignore the ramifications of what they ultimately want to do in a practical sense. If the Trump election ever gets mentioned in canon,...

  • First off: Neat ideas.

    ​Some BSDs are motivated by money -- and are some of the most (or I should say more) pliant servants. Dancers like Dragon's Wrath and Francesco can intervene if their tribemates get too off-reservation. And lastly, that assumes that its other paranormal servants are somehow less disruptive than the Dancers are (their combat fomori come to mind). For Pentex, chaos absolutely has its place. It's like that line from Operation Petticoat, "...I don't know. He said something about there being 'profit in chaos' and then disappeared with the truck..."

  • I sort of can empathize with that, but I disagree... Here's why:

    ​1. Pentex is sort of like a cult (Wyrm cults are something that got a much greater focus in the latest Book of the Wyrm -- which I think is also good), only it's a cult with an almost unlimited degree of material resources.

    ​2. It's nigh ubiquitous, and 99% of the people who work for it are largely innocent people who are slowly being Wyrm-tainted simply by working there. It's a Wyrm-taint distribution network for which there is no good way to deal with (particularly given the Garou's skill-set). That...
