  • I'll add my vote to animation. Really gritty animation. It's affordable, and stylized animation fits the mood of werewolf more than live-action would, even if you could afford all the high-end CGI.

  • The theory that it is Caine's rage against God makes more sense than calling it a Beast. It's the maniacal urge to murder heedless of consequences or even your own pain.

  • Does the fashion in the Gangrel visual examples have a name?

    Is the way they are dressed in the picture of a group of male and female Gangrel based on some real world type of fashion subculture? If so, what is the name of that fashion subculture? Thank you for your time.

  • The Brujah were one of the High Clans for a long time. Even now, they hold tremendous influence over groups prone to violence. Really, the main reason the Brujah fell from High Clan status is not due to Presence being weak, but rather because their rage weakness is much more of a liability in modern times. Back in the day, if you slaughtered a council of Lords in a rage, you could make up some story about an ambush by the barbarian or the Saracen and how only you survived, and your presence would sell that explanation.

    These days, you can't really get away with such things in a corporate...

  • Or at the least, intelligent beasts like wolves. Wolves don't charge into obviously suicidal situations because they are angry, and are loyal to their mates, cubs, and packs. What vampires call "The Beast" isn't like a beast at all. It's more like a mindless demon that doesn't care if sating its rage or hunger means jumping face-first into a wood-chipper. I doubt Feral Hearters even call it "the Beast". They probably have their own term that suits their philosophy. Indeed, I would think only Humanity and Honorable Accord would call it "The Beast"....

  • This isn't to push the stake out after being paralyzed. This is a very short window to yank it out before you become paralyzed.

  • So why do the Wendigo call themsevles that, anyway?

    A wendigo is a spirit of greed, and has an emaciated appearance with no resemblance to a wolf or werewolf. Why name themselves after a spirit of greed?

  • The only problem with Stamina is it doesn't represent his increasing difficulty pulling the stake out. He begins fully impaled, with the stake completely through his body and nearly a foot out his back. He manages to pull it most of the way out very quickly, but then can only pull it out further at a progressively slower pace, completely running out of strength with maybe four inches left in his chest....

  • Yeah, Farmer doesn't really seem to have a mechanic for transitioning to a different feeding method once your Humanity drops, which seems rather silly. What if you are playing someone who starts as a Farmer, then transitions to Alleycat once his Humanity drops to 6?...

  • Back on topic: yay or nay to Stake Resistance? Is it OP? UP? Needs a detail changed?


    "Fortitude 4, Stake Resistance
    When staked through the heart, the vampire may make a rouse check to resist paralyses. The vampire nonetheless loses one point of strength per round. If the vampire has not managed to remove the stake before reaching 0 strength, they are paralyzed as normal.

    Some SI have taken to using stakes lined with several large metal barbs or hooks after witnessing this power in action. "...

    Yeah.

    Nosferatu live in the sewers because their weakness and powers push them towards a life hidden from humanity, and into territories which have access to numerous animals and tunnels.

    Gangrel wander the wilds because their weakness also pushes them towards avoiding cameras while their powers give them supreme mobility in territories where they face very little competition from other vampires.

    Ventrue have both the greatest need for a safe, stable herd, and the greatest ability to gain a herd, so of course they focus on the centers of power and encourage...

    The weakness seems way harsh and punishing for one of the clans most likely to compete for control over corporations and high society.

  • Uh, who says you can't? I've seen vampires staked with arrows in several movies. I can't think of someone using a spear on a vampire off the top of my head, but I've never seen someone try a spear, fail, and blame the failure on it being a spear instead of a stake. People improvising with any nearby source of pointy wood is kind of a staple of the genre.

  • It's already been massively streamlined. I do not see the need to streamline it further.

  • A Fortitude power to represent how stakes work in "Fright Night"

    In "Fright Night", stakes paralyze rather slowly. Evil Ed takes over two minutes to "die", and almost gets the stake out before he does. Later, Dandridge is staked and just yoinks the stake out, though he is straining in a way that suggest he has been weakened, considering his previous feats of strength. At the end of the movie, Evil Ed is revealed to have survived, presumably because Peter Vincent pulled the stake out.

    So to represent this, how about this for a Fortitude power: instead of immediately paralyzing you, a stake causes you to lose 1 point of strength...

    Viccissitude sucks in terms of raw power. It's just really cool anyway.

  • Same. I see nothing in there that suggests the Sabbat will return to being a true sect with its own cities you can base your campaign in. I don't care about infiltrators. Infiltrators just makes me think that they will be Nephandi with the serial numbers filed off, corrupting the Cammies until they get discovered and become something for the Cammies to punch. Bleech.

    Ah well. I've got Long Road Out of Hell, and it's free. The new "Sabbat" book about infiltrator NPCs who need to be rooted out lest they corrupt the precious darling Cammies and their Bela Swan touchstones is...
