  • The total modifier for 'circumstances' explicitly shouldn't exceed +/-5. The partial transformation section then goes on to detail a roll receiving a +6 bonus. While it's reasonable to consider those bonuses 'circumstantial', and to assume the +6 modifier was before taking into account any existing penalties, etc (and hence not a final number) it's not hard to understand why many people don't interpret it that way at a glance....

  • Is it just me, or can a Stigmatic with Potent Blood never naturally heal any Lethal damage they take (without medical treatment), since they take additional lethal damage at the exact same rate due to the merit?

    I would just continue the pattern and add 1000 lbs more with each point....

    I like the cover art. I adore the cover art for NWR, but I think the cover art for Half-Damned is decent.

    Really not a fan of most of the art in the book, but there are a couple good pieces.

    If you apply an incredibly reductionist perspective to the issues people have had with each book, sure....

    Hi Danielle - I think it's pretty cool that you've jumped in here to provide your insights. Despite the criticisms, I would like to reiterate that I do really like what you & the writers have produced here. These Dhampir are absolutely a huge step up from the version in Night Horrors and I'll be incorporating at least one into my campaigns within the next couple of weeks.

    More than specific issues (such as Clan Impostor) I think the main disappointment experienced by myself and a handful of others is the general tone with which the book seems to treat vampires and how much it...

    Definitely happening.


    If we're talking about the issues with tone and how this feels like a 1E or even CWoD book at times, I'm not holding my breath. At the end of the day, fixing these issues would be even more of a massive rewrite than fixing Beast was, and that itself brought a whole host of issues.

    I don't think it's reasonable to expect them to go that route with a supplement....

    Catharsis

    Unless I'm missing something, as written, this ability allows the Promethean to cure the subject of any sort of Condition. Obviously allowing it to cure, say, Blindness or some other physical Condition would be foolish, but there are still a lot of non-physical uses that seem incredibly potent.

    Would you allow a Promethean with this Transmutation to cure another of their Torment? What about lifting the veil of Disquiet from a subject?

    started a topic The Demon-Blooded Dhampir

    The Demon-Blooded Dhampir

    I have a thing for combining splats that should probably stay separate, so on reading Half-Damned, several interesting new concepts occurred to me - such as wolf-blooded or demon-blooded Dhampir.

    I'm still not entirely sure what kind of stories might be interesting to explore with such characters, though. Perhaps a character that's the 'end result' of a long line of Ordo-Dracul research, some sort of Proto-Deviant?

    Does anyone else plan to explore Dhampir like this? How do you plan to do it? Any mechanical pitfalls to watch out for? Any unique stories you could see...

    Should we put this in the errata thread, then?...

    Your phrasing is obfuscating your point and I don't feel like arguing.

    To address what I think you're saying:

    Any setting where you need to care about how Dhampir interact with Unchained is a crossover setting that abides by broader rules than merely those in Vampire. One of those is that that particular variation of Unseen Sense allows the mortal to 'see the gears', is a big deal, and in every other instance where that variation of Unseen Sense comes up, such senses are life-changing and utterly un-ignorable.

    In such a crossover setting, it makes no sense...

    Reading through the book with more detail, and watching the errata thread...

    It really kind of feels like some of the writers couldn't be assed to figure out what game they were writing for. There are so many Classic World of Darkness & 1E references that it's kind of ridiculous. Like, above and beyond using the wrong word for things, up to it actually affecting how certain mechanics are designed... =\

    I'm still really happy with my purchase but this is disappointing.

    p21 "On their part, dhampir generally find Unchained ideas of Hell and the God-Machine rather far-fetched."

    This makes no sense, because dhampir get every variation of the Unseen Sense merit as a built in power. Unseen Sense: God-Machine allows them to physically see Infrastructure, so dhampir should be some of the most familiar denizens of Chronicles with the God-Machine outside of Angels and Demons themselves.

    The takeaway on this would just be that you can't interrupt yourself, but if someone wakes you up before those three hours are up, all you have to do is make up the difference next time you sleep....

    I noticed something very jarring about the werewolf art, and I think you hit the nail on the head.

    Honestly, I was pretty disappointed in a large chunk of the art in this book, though a couple of the images are wonderful....

    I've only glanced through the section, but I'm not seeing any mechanics for their creation. There are a lot of guidelines, example families, and good explorations of the hows and whys.

    There are new Ghoul merits and Conditions that help facilitate families, but no strict rules for creation like there are for eg. Werewolf Packs....
