    Probably because I was more of a lurker until recently and generally avoided the transhumanism topics as a whole, but I'm sincerely having issues wrapping my head around the arguments you're using to support your idea.

    Might be because I fundamentally disagree with it and my ability to get into different perspectives is failing me at the moment, might be because I made mistakes while reading or even that I I'm in the middle of exams days and the stress is killing my brain, but I'd rather fade away than cluttering the discussion with my nonsense.

    Apologies for not giving...

    Not wanting for humanity to disappear might be the most notable point of agreement between Pentacle and Seers since "magic is cool", just to say one

    As for the other splats, I can't think of even one as a whole that would not prefer for humanity to be there (and that's counting even almost all the the antagonists). I mean, even those who feed on it, have fun playing with humanity or obtain powers from its dark urges will still want mankind around. Even several Idigams and Abyssals cultists would rather avoid humanity's extinction .The certain groups notion you propose is...

  • I'm checking my old stuff with the idea to update it to second edition. Some, like my work with Hosts, are fairly straightforward, but the same cannot be said for Djinn.

    Since this is the single finished homebrew I'm most proud of so far, you think those 2nd Edition addition I wrote back in the day are enough or I should do more?

    I care about my Djinn and if I can do something to improve them and make them last more, I'll try to find the time eventually

    Hey, I heard of it only by people talking about it here and yet I can already agree that's quite neat!...

  • It pops up from time to time, mostly with wood spirits like dryads and such. My humble guess is that is appears in rpgs because it's a cool powers that taps into the "plants are connected" thing.

    By the way, thanks for mentioning the Bloodline. It's one I missed and it's quite interesting...

    It this only in a context of open conflict? Because I kinda agree with Arc and might have something relevant to say if the discussion is not only about war between humans and monsters

    EDIT:



    If I can get even more off topic for a second, there's a moment in Nioh, which is essentially a game where all monsters and spirits of the Japanese Mythology are true, where Tokugawa Ieyasu, while still portrayed as a positive character and big good of the setting, is, to the eyes of the main character who can spot ephemeral creatures, completely surrounded by negative...

    Eh, perhaps someday. I still want to hope

    Unless I missed previous updates about them not being a thing anymore, which is totally possible since my Vampire knowledge is sorely lacking when it comes to current developments...

  • Because I'm an idiot, I forgot about a thing: Innocents.

    Really, it did not cross my mind because it's basically another core, but that book is a masterpiece. I'm partial because kids in horror are a thing that taps into my childhood memories and a subgenre I'll love forever, but Innocents is wonderfully written, inspiring, enlightening and can frankly be used to run CoD without anything else. I have used it to run some short campaigns that, even with all my years as Storyteller, are among the most memorable and loved ones

    I remember getting emotional at some points while...

    This might be the wrong book but I gotta ask: any mention of Belial's Brood? I've been waiting for the 2E version of them and any foreshadowing would be nice

  • Quotes that are, as Satchel's contributions tend to go, spot on, interesting and excellent fuel for discussions. I already praised the ones about trying to channel your gifts and desires into something good as suggested by Judaism, but these ones about the almost istinctive wisdom of folktales, local legends and oral tradition are also relevant. That's indeed a part of what I was referring to, the fact that scary stories carry warnings and lessons with them, not to mention there's something within the human nature that makes them persist even today. For all our achievements, they're still a part...

  • About Lessons, Revelations and the Dark Mother

    While talking about Beast related things in another thread, the topic of lessons came up and I found myself having more thoughts to share about it, as well as thinking that I'd be interested to hear what your opinion is. Since doing this in the other thread would derail the discussion, here's a new one.

    This is just me rambling and there's a good chance that the Player's and Storyteller's Guide might eventually disagree with me and promote a canon that has nothing to do with my ideas. Anyways.

    The central topic I wanted to pick at was the relationship between Beasts,...

    Oh, this sounds nice. I'd buy it just for a single one of the clans in it or the Elder powers. Having all that stuff togethers means I'll add this to my cart immediately. Now I just have to find the money

  • Is this the right combination of self-awareness and self-mockery?

    Tideteller
    "Pfft, what you mean with "too many fishmen"? Don't be silly"
    Background: Born from the awe, wonder and insignificance the sight of the ocean provokes to human minds, Tideteller is a odd little spirit that feeds on stories and ideas. It spends most of its existence underwater, lurking beneath the waves and listening to what others have to say, entertaining itself with their tales. Sure as the tides go, it will eventually follow his nature and emerge in order to share its own...

  • The plan was to have plenty. Both survivors from Ancient Rome and new ones. An idea I wanted to keep there was that the Fallen took control of Rome without knowing how bad the Earthbound situation there was, something that would eventually come up in the game.

    As for the wider picture, there's a big Earthbound under the Vesuvius and Etna...

  • I had to think of stuff not related to college today, for the sake of my sanity. I used the time to write the last Hero. The "pause" is still in place, but in theory I'll get to Kongamato and the sample Beasts after this. I want to leave the chapter about Heroes and Mythic Cycle last, since I'm currently in the middle of some personal ponderings about that topic and I want to wait before I have a go at it.

    Anyways, Kapia is intended to be middle ground for Heroes, as far as my examples go. Had some tragic ones, some doomed ones and some rotten ones: she's the (relatively)...
