  • I'm afraid that won't be an option for me, between time zones, an accent I'm not exactly proud of and the fact I don't do well when I have to speak English with someone not in front of me, but I don't want to ruin anyone's fun because of it.

    So I wish you all good luck with the game. Feel free to use my character for it, should you need it

    I finally charged some money on my card and quickly got my copy of this. I like it! Writing quality aside, which is delightfully high but comes as no surprise, it touches some interesting points and builds upon new concepts and others that came up here and there (I swear I remember you talking about Hamartia, but hell if I know where).

    Overall, well done! I think that nowadays my ideas for Heroes are more different from those described here than I would have thought in the past, but this is neverthless a really solid take that provides cool options, game hooks and stuff to think about....

    Yeah, that was weird but I felt exactly the same. It's a mixture of excitement, pride and eager anticipation. Looking forward the day people get to see what we're working on....

  • Alright, I took a decision:

    I'll go for the whole thing, with a rhytm that's the right balance between spare time and proper "development". I've found and ordered some solid source books to use for Geist, will add a short section about other gamelines at the end, and perhaps even add a crossover chapter. I want this to come out as best as it can, enough to look back at it and be proud.

    In the meantime, I think I'll clean up some shorter things I wrote and try to put those in the Vault, with the hope they can provide a little art budget for the Dark Era (at the...

  • Ok folks, real talk.

    Even if I have not written new material for the Dark Era while waiting for Geist, I've been editing and changing this project here and there for more than an year. It is already a book and, when it comes to fanmade content, the thing I'm most personally proud of. I worked really hard on it and it's both my humble tribute to the Dark Eras and to one of the first books that made me fall in love with White Wolf and Wraith back in the day.

    I can take a couple of weeks to clean it up, add what needs to be added to the Beast section after the Player's Guide...

  • So, the DRC in Contagion has plenty of focus on Beast. Perfect...all according to plan.

    (There's no plan. I did not write for this book, did not know about a DRC section and it's all just a lucky coincidence that plays well with my fanmade Dark Era and the moment I decide to put it on the Storyteller's Vault. But the section is good, I liked it a lot)

    EDIT: Though there's a couple minor things I think it's worth to point out: to say that during King's Leopold rule people were "forced to work in mines where their toils brought massive profits to a king thousands of...

  • I've come to appreciate what the Devouring brings to the table and the stories and character involvement it carries along but, as others are saying, the circumstances of the Homecoming can still happen, with the core hinting at it and the Player's Guide giving more details.

    My personal suggestions is to call it something along the line of "Spontaneous Devouring", keep in mind it can happen, but also that it's not the the only way Beast can merge with their Horror. It's alright, more options are rarely a bad thing....

  • Yeah, pretty much my idea. Decide which friend to help where either one falls prey to Pandorans or another one feels betrayed and goes Centimanus (only to come back later), make your decisions and determine if New Dawn happens or not. That sort of stuff.

    Not too long, still able to impression players and provide a contained arc which serves Promethean well....

  • I just wanted to thank all of you for the kind response to this thread. It was an heartfelt post I made because I sincerely thougth it could have a positive impact on our place and community, but my anxiety alarms rang like hell as I wrote and posted it and I doubt they'll ever stop.

    But the way those who replied to it have taken it, your encouragement and kind words, really made me feel better about it.

    Thanks to everyone, really.

  • Look, since everyone's seems to have gone through similar stuff here: I get you.

    The Beast core hurt people. I can't say I understand it, I can't say I agree, because this game made me feel as others in this thread have said, but that book hurt people. There are stories of people disgusted by it, people throwing away their RPG books because of it, people who thought of leaving the industry...

    Those are legitimate reactions it's hard to ignore. For a variety of reasons that range from learning what went wrong to sacrosanct human decency, it would be bad to dismiss then,...

  • Bloodlines one was awesome, looking forward to the second even if I find myself more at home in the CoD now.

    I do wish it the best, since its success would have consequences on White Wolf/Onyx Path as a whole. And, who knows? Perhaps we'll get CoD games someday.

    My ideal one would be a Telltale style Promethean game, with scenes and consequences that determine the end of the Pilgrimage

  • Open letter about the Chronicles of Darkness, Onyx Path, Beast and the future

    Ok, let's do this thing.

    I feel like it's time for me to be open about some things and try get something good out a bad situation.

    Turns out there was a damn valid reason I felt awful in last bunch of months. Now I'm fighting the thing, but there's a chance I won't win. A minor one, admittedly, but still big enough for the doctors to be frank about it. Still enough to be scared.

    To be honest, it's not something I wanted to discuss. I told only a few people and I'm afraid sharing it here might not be the best idea. I'm afraid it would look like attention-seeking,...

  • I try to do the same. Sometimes I'm able to, like with Lovecraft and the fact Cosmic Horror is way more than him now, other times I can't, like with Marion Zimmer Bradley.

    Also, Caladriu, sorry about the tone of my first reply. It's a nasty issue and it's right to feel angry about it, you have reasons to ask those questions. But we've interacted plenty of times before, I think you're good peeps and I was too blunt in my reply too you. Apologies, this issue hurts me more than I let it show around here, I feel dumb and betrayed about it even if I'm a nobody who was not involved and...

  • Beast is not him, thankfully. Just as Promethean is not, Demon is not, Innocents is not and many other books are not. Lots people worked on those. People who are not terrible and did their job well. With passion, talent and integrity.

    Look, I get it, it's the elephant in the room, but it's unfair to treat the gameline as if its developer back then tainted it. Would be too easy, simple and frankly insulting towards both to his victims and those he fooled.

    I used to think of him as goals, as in "I want to write these books and get as good as him". He once wrote...

    Wrong Zach, I think. Zachary Levi is best known for his role as Chuck in the titular series and being the voice of Flynn Rider in Tangled. Here he plays Shazam himself....

    Can't say I know that much about Shazam (well, a little: I'm still a comic geek), but I'm glad because Zachary Levi is a great dude and deserves it....

  • It does, but not directly. The best it can do, which is still valuable, is to provide Beasts a better framework to feed as they need in a less distruptive way. Which in turn lowers the chances of the Horror running amok and the overall strain a Begotten inflicts on the astral tapestry, with consequent diminished chances of them showing up on the Heroes' radar. Eventually, it will fail, for reasons that range from bad luck to one's Legend growing.

    Primordial Newcomer is right about that one. Not a perfect solution, but it makes things better. That's the sort of "imperfect but...

  • Just wanted to say I can't help to appreciate how this thread evolved in a passionate discussion of all things Beast between sharp and well-informed people. Carry on.
