    "Greetings everybody! I want to know what are some good occult books on nature and plants. I realize most plants do not originate form this planet, neither do the bodies of water. I’d like to learn more but cannot find any leads on the web. Are there any books on this topic?"

    "That's a good question. It's well-known that oak trees are from a much higher dimension than our own, and the only native plants to our position on the Merkaba are carnivorous plants like pitchers, Venus-fly-traps, and sundews (that's because they eat meat, and as everyone knows,...

    And I definitely like giving my players the ability to do things.

    Charlaquin makes some good points - I don't actually have the Chronicles of Darkness core book, I just have the God Machine rules update, and the one I have doesn't go over the Uncover Clues action. If I'd found it first, I'd definitely be using it that way, though.

    I was also thinking I might expand it a little further and allow it to be used to turn successes into exceptional successes on skill rolls (definitely not power rolls, though). Right now I'm passing out actual poker chips at the start of the...

    "Like Willpower" is only there to explain how it's kept and stored.

    This hack is to eliminate those instances where you roll Perception or Investigate rolls and then fail them, thereby preventing the scene and the story from moving forward.

    "Looking for clues" is an action that can fail, and nothing brings the game to a screeching halt faster than that, and as an ST, you're going to be fudging things around because there's something you want the players to find, but they can't read your mind or the dice hate them. It doesn't provide the answers, it...

    Perception Hack

    I've started running a Hunter-type game using Chronicles rules, and one thing that really struck me was how difficult it is to move through scenes if the players spend too long dawdling on minor details, so I've started experimenting with perception and clue-collection. Here is what I've started using:

    Perception is a pool like Willpower. You get a number of dots equal to your Wits + Composure. If there's a basic clue in any given scene, you find it. You can spend Perception like Willpower, but every time you do, you enhance your understanding of the scene or clue in question. For...

    So you agree with me. Imagine that. This quote is exactly my damned point. At this point, it seems like you're deliberately dodging the analogy.



    That's right, so why not make a burner cover and meet up in that instead of letting everyone who wants and doesn't even ask see your true form? Or risk a homeless guy taking a photo on his smartphone? Or, worse yet, meeting someplace God is constantly watching? My original RPG experiences were with actual ex-cons who had already served their sentences for corporate espionage, an actual police detective working on vice, and an...
