    Hmm... Odd idea.. would a Talassi Tempter who's a Loan Shark work? Just an odd idea i latched onto... They tempt you into taking the Deal.. only to entrap you in Debt....

    Hmm... It's possible that the more "Weird" of her adventures are her exploring Mage Mysteries... Locations long Lost. In this case shes an Inguma that feeds on the Secrets that the Mages have forgotten...

    Mordremoth from Guild Wars 2 and in a second possibility... Any of the "Elder Dragons" from the same Game. Mordremoth to me is a Anakim or Makara focused on the Mind and being a "Vast Entity" that is literally growing to cover the entire continent.

  • Only thing i can Chip in is this: EVERY Splat in there first book of the line reads as "We're Important/Ancient/Powerful and we know about how the world really works" It's because the first books are usually written to be stand alone enough to use without the rest of the Gamelines. They are like the Pirate code... "Guidelines" for the setting and how these creatures see themselves.

    Personally I enjoyed the first/original concept of Beast's being "Born" as they are and just coming to realise they are monsters. THIS DOES NOT INVALIDATE THEM GROWING UP AS...

    Ow Lord... My brain did a thing....

    Godzilla is what happens if a Deviant is Devoured......

    Edit:
    To Clarify (I find brainstorming like this Fun) The Deviant was likely hunted and nearly killed in/near an Island, one of the Local Beast found an... Odd Kin (probably never meet something like them before) and tried to save them, the Rage and strength they had made them tap into the Dream and made them into something Else, Nearly instantly sending them into an Inheritance (Rampancy Probaly) this being a Deviant (from what we know of them) they step into a Spiral of...

    One other suggestion for Talassii (I kinda need to get the Player's handbook so just going from the Descriptions here) Perhaps "Mary" from Silent Hill 2 could be one... She in Life represented not being able to move on, being unable to let go and having to stay with her. She was Bed Ridden, unable to care for herself. Then comes the End of SH2... and she becomes..



    A Nightmarish creature that floats around and attacks with it's Tongue....

  • Let me rephase, There is no Defining one that someone is "Now" putting upon them. I Would say it just has one that is there from Local Myths and Legends. Or from the Old Apex....

  • If there is no Apex there is no Shared Hive Trait. Not no Hive. A Hive Exists in the Dreamscape regardless... just no-one can interact with it....

  • Perhaps they could develop a "Calling out" Mechanic... that can force an Integrity check or suffer a Penalty? Something like that would be useful against every Line/Kin and not just a single one. Something in the Line of thought of say "Ahha! I know you Monster! Your a Fae! Your kind doesn't do well against Cold Iron!" and then throws some shackles against them.. the Hero could Force them to act as if they have the Weakness even if they don't actually have it, if they fail their Integrity check. None of it would be Permanent and it could fail much more easily?

  • A Might Prove to have a Reason to be feared, but if it's not something everyone (or atleast Enough) knows about... Then it wouldn't have an effect. Apexes "Need" to be known to maintain that title. Hence why if a Town has alot of Say Werewolves it's possible for one of them to be the Apex in the Hive without knowing it....

    He's the Chief first, determined to make sure everyone does their job, and wants to catch the criminals. The first you know about him being Gay is that he mentions it in a conversation. Well Mentions his Boyfriend brought him Lunch.. and that's it to introduce that fact. It's understated and not majorly "Important" at that point, but slowly becomes abit more for the character as the show goes on. It felt right, not forced or rushed. Atleast to me personally.

    Anywho, thanks for understanding....

    That's a Noble goal and one I Fully Support, I think I come across as bitter because to me seeing it handled well is Rare.. and it makes me annoyed at seeing it bad. Sorry if i Come across as a "Hater" I don't have any issues with it at all. I'm much more invested in the Story of what's happening and the Romance etc if it feels natural (Granted i see jokes in some things about Romance that makes me chuckle).

    Also i do get it with Dumbledore (My spelling is bad at times.. especially if I'm only half awake) He's not Representation, Probably a really bad example. One I'd say...

  • Also the Apex does not have to be a Beast... Most Commonly it is but it doesn't have too be.
    So if the Local "Bigshot" is a Vampire... they can Taint the Hive towards what makes a Vampire more Feared (If i read it right that is).

    By Force I mean in a Narrative sense. Don't try to put a Square Peg in a round Hole type of thing.

    Like say: Harry Potter; Dumbledor is Gay. It's never mentioned in the story and only comes up because JK Rowling mentioned it AFTER the Books came out. The stories never needed that element in them, so it wasn't "Forced" into the story.
    If it's Needed in the story that's being told then sure, Let it be known. But it's not something that needs to be on every character at the introduction. (PC's are different, but NPC's unless its Integral too the character it's not needed)...

  • "He stands Tall, perhaps a bit too tall, something is off about him but you can't tell what. He looks just like everyone else, the same as you. You know you've seen him around many times, but only now do you feel it, something is wrong with him... Then he smiles down at you and the world twists. His Eyes... Why are they black....."

    The Other doesn't even need to mean a Minority just the FEAR of one. the Fear that something you know is suddenly pulled away and you see it. Everything is the same... But the other has always been there.

    I've probably rambled......

    Warning the Following is an opinion and might Offend, But it is not intended.

    Honestly i feel the Best way to use LGBTQ characters.. is to not.
    *Watches the Tumbleweed and the pitchforks gather*
    Hear me out... I don't say not to have them. I mean Don't Force it, if someone is Trans... they are Trans, If someone is Homosexual they are Homosexual. That isn't and Shouldn't be the only Trait they have and it shouldn't be the only thing that Defines them. CoD (and oWoD before it) has never felt like the characters that represent that group of Humanity (and otherwise) are forced,...

    You know you could combine the two in another Way. The Serpents have a consistent enemy the "Rises" Regularly and seeks to pervert all the Teachings of the Serpents... That would be the Aberrants. To do it right... Perhaps the Serpents and the Aberrant were once.. the Same Race. The Serpents recorded Knowledge and passed it down and a sub-sect of them developed a "New Method" of storing it and passing it along. Genetically. They developed a method that would allow the Knowledge to be stored inside of themselves, it worked, but.. went wrong.

    In some of the Serpents...
