    replied to Abandoned game is abandoned.
    It does? Damn, I did not know that and always used it neutrally for the same reason. Good to know.

    But yes, there are gamelines I don't ever think I'll run (one has the players one has) and I still get the books because I enjoy reading them. I like CoD's setting and fiction...

    replied to King's Pennywise is a Beast!
    I think to remember some writers saying they use It as inspiration when it comes to Lair and Chamber creations. Which works, since in the book It has recurring places from which it emerges, often related to previous shenanigans (the house in Neibolt Street, the abandoned factory, etc.) and having a sense of dread surrounding them. I can totally see that aspect being an idea source for Beast but, if I were to stat It in-game, I'd go with an Insatiable. Seriously, it's a fear-based shapeshifter that eats people and has a very physical Den.

    That said, if you give me total freedom, I'd...

    Beast had three chapters, Heroes, Beasts and Insatiables. The Night Horror's format is that of a collection of NPCs but, in some cases like that one of Beast, the chapter does not begin with them. Heroes are described in more depth, building upon what's written about them in the core, while Insatiables, being a new kind of antagonists, are described and given their own mechanics.

    My hope, which I guess will be fullfilled, is that we get some informations and 2nd Edition rules (Gifts and so on) for these three kind of wolves as well. Not"only"...

  • I think this will be the case, but here's hoping that they will follow the format for Beast's Night Horrors book, namely a decent chunk of pages that explore the characters of each chapter before getting to the NPCs.

    We could use both mechanics and fluff for all of them.

    replied to "We're now a Brood!"
    Let's see.

    One I made up on my own was a powerful Beast setting out to create a Brood in order to have the power to control the place. So, he look out for Beast and more or less persuaded them to join.

    When it comes to actual games, I have a couple of examples.

    In my playtest back when the Kickstarter happened, we went for the classic "enemies are hunting some of you, you all happen to be around", which is a bit of a cliché when it comes to forming a party. There was no time to really delve into the the decision of connecting Lairs, it was just...

    replied to Innocents 2e is on its way!
    Innocent wa probably my favorite book of 1st Edition, up there with Slasher. Considering I have a very weak spot for kids and horror (this October when I get both It and Stranger Things will be a good moment for me), this is great news.

    The moment this drops in, it will have my money.

    All things aside, I gotta admit that as someone who fell in love with Forsaken because of Predators and read that book so many times I lost count, it is quite clear the book shows its age nowadays.

    I was talking about this with another fellow Werewolf fan the other day. It's not "just" the mechanics (though having new ones would be great for sure), it's also a matter of tone, lore and focus. Predators is an antagonist book written in early 1st Edition, where all the big three lines had a little problem of identity issues. Again, awesome book, but after 2nd Edition came in...

    Just ask to the Exalted forum about 2nd Edition and its contributions about the setting. They'll give you enough proof to support this thesis until the end of times (does not help that it was not perfect even on the mechanics side, but people down there burst into flames when you talk about some of the fluff of 2nd Edition)...

  • There's another thread about this, where people more informed than me have found proof this seems to be a completely new game and not a CoD line

  • An example of High Speech visuals I used so my players would get it immediately was the Word Walls from Skyrim, expect only Mages can spot them. That, plus some imagery from comics and other movies. Neil Gaiman, Warren Ellis, Alan Moore and Garth Morrison help. I often pick up the books and show them to people, when I want to explain Mage's visuals

    Speaking wise, I use words from the Cthulhu Mythos as well because I'm me. I also use some terminology from Stephen King's books, especially the Dark Tower. Ka, and such. Not much well known, but it does its job

    I won't object other arguments since I'm not the one that should tell you how to feel, but I also won't say nothing if you state things that aren't true. Enough with the "Beast was a disaster everyone hates" meme. And Deviant seems great. Easy to say the books you don't like are wasted paper.

    Before going forward, keep in mind that my favorite lines are Werewolf, Promethean, Geist, Mummy and Beast. Geist since I discovered the CoD and Book Of The Dead was (and still is) the only separate supplement we got so far. It's not like I don't get the desire to have more stuff, but...

  • My guess as well, but I admit knowing that was the case and that I got the submission guidelines right would be useful. In theory, the submission guide says the company tries to respond all the entries, which is the reason I'm asking

    (It probably just got shot down though)...

  • Broad question: any way to know how a freelancer submission went?

    Because I read the brochure and the "damn, I'd really like to write some of these books myself" thought returned at full strength

    A few months ago I sent in my first freelancer submission and, while I'm not saying that should have got me a job at Onyx Path for sure, I have no idea how that went. I'm not even sure if it was considered or not. I do think to have followed all the technical guidelines: the length, the division between crunch and fluff, a signed disclosure form and all the attachments, but I can't be 100% sure I did no mistakes.

    Since enough time...

    The cycle ends. Nice, my appreciation for Mummy has been quieter than that for other gamelines, but this is cool

  • It's not exactly easy for me saying this, considering Columbus is not only a national hero but he was born in city next to mine, where there are statues of him everywhere and he is considered a source of pride (around here we all grew up with him depicted as hero, visiting the places he lived in, etc.) but yes, that guy deserves being called this and worse. Screw him....

  • Upside Down does the "dark reflection of our world quite well. If only all we seen it so far weren't so inimical of human life, I'd be tempted to translate it to the Shadow, but its fauna and flora seem to have a theme that does not coexist well with our world. Abyss, perhaps? Lower Depth that gets something by feeding on people and using them as incubators? Or just really bad corner of the Shadow?

    Questions, questions, questions...

    (That said, hype for season 2!)

    replied to You Know what I love MK I
    Story time. A bit of information: the place I live is not exactly a major city, but it's a rather big town, separate from the wilderness and certainly not in the country. It's the sort of town smaller towns look at when thinking of "the city" but we tend to laugh at the idea when somebody tells us that.

    In the middle of it we have a river or, at least, what's technically a river. It's almost always dry (unless it rains a lot) and there's grass and shrub everywhere in it. As I was crossing a bridge to go to the mall today, I saw several people looking down the river and turned...

    For all that matters, I don't feel I can truly get the situations, with me being straight, white, not part of any minority around here and living in another country (not that mine is enlightened about certain topics, but that's something for another day), but you have all my deepest sympathies. I''s clear these are difficult times. Wish I could do something more substantial, but I'm the other side of the world.

    You call a rose with another name and it's still a rose, you call a Nazi with another name and it's still a Nazi. Response and opposition to certain ideologies of hate is something...

    They casted Michael Sheen as Aziraphale and David Tennant as Crowley for the adaptation of Good Omens, a casting I could not imagine myself but now I'm totally on board with.
