    ...oh yeah, CtD never had a revised edition.

    Man it's got a LOT of catching up to do. For the "deeper into the Kiths" part...well, would have preferred for them to get their own book devoted to just Kiths, a "Lore of the Kiths" if you will, but ah well.

  • Nice.

    Even if Dark Eras' future is dead in the water, historical Compacts and Conspiracies is WAY too good of an idea to let go.

    Also hoping they clarify what the hell happened to the Hototogisu between Fallen Blossoms and their present day incarnation.

    (...which I'm really hoping that, with David Hill's exit, he didn't take everything about the Tokyo/Japan write ups with him but...)

    Well...there was that one time Hollywood did this:



    ...which to be fair, looks like DE2 will be sort of covering this in their "Rise of the Last Imperials" Era. So eh....

    Oh that's not from Guyver. That's from Shin Kamen Rider: Prologue.

    Not that I would begrudge you for that: the art direction and the special effects used are very similar between the two....

    ...eh, not surprising. The BtP core does mention a Vocaloid Promethean after all...



    This is actually a bit funnier to me then usual, since currently I'm watching this:





    ...and that really does sound like the premise of a trashy anime.



    Sooooo this:



    plus this?

    I mean, Kamen Riders by default are strong as hell too. They'd have to be to keep up with all the ridiculous monsters they fight.

    As for nightmarish hybrids of man and insect...well they did have this guy in the 90's:



    With the most horrific transformation sequence I've ever seen...

  • Yeah I was about to say:

    Wasn't the primary hook/point of CofD to be the setting, mythos, and story surrounding the gamelines and not the mechanics? And that even if you did want more mechanics, because of the toolbox nature of CofD, the game actively encourages players and STs to come up with stuff themselves?

    Otherwise if I'd wanted to bumble with mechanics more, I'd just whip out Pathfinder....

    replied to Contagion Chronicle book
    Yeah I'm wondering that as well.

    Taking the name at face value, having Contagion JUST be a supernatural disease is...incredibly underwhelming. Next guess would be some kind of organization but having an antagonist organization that somehow draws the ire of every single supernatural creature in CofD is...a little too special snowflake-y....

    (From the Dark Eras 2 thread):


    Huh. I ended up being right. Who'da thunk?

    Either way, something to look forward to....

  • Oh easy:

    All the Ghost Riders as Sin-Eaters.

    Much of their powers comes from the result of some type of vengeful spirit (in the case of Johnny Blaze and Danny Ketch) or a murderous ghost (Robbie Reyes) that come from some form of an Underworld that bonds to the mortal and giving them superpowers and exclusively dealing with supernatural threats....

  • Not doing Beast for Mississippi Steamboats might be fine anyways, since we would be double-dipping a bit due to A Fearful Lesson's existence.

  • Considering C20 isn't even officially out to the public, it's probably going to be a while before we see anything resembling "CtD4e", much less Changeling Storyteller's Vault.

  • Well in the vein of the upcoming Netflix Defenders mini-series, I always saw:
    • Daredevil as an Eshmaki Nemesis
    • Jessica Jones as an Ogre Changeling of the Summer Court (manikin or truefriend kith, maybe?)
    • Luke Cage as a Deviant
    • Iron Fist as a Thyrsus of the Adamantine Arrow.

    ...otherwise for most of them it's like "yup. Deviant. Almost all of 'em"

    p. 30, 33, 36, 39, 42

    The amount of points pooled to give to the Backgrounds Holdings and Retinue is off. Totaling each of the characters' unspent Background points (Erissa: 3 points, Errant: 1 points, William: 2 points, Cid: 1 point, and Lily: 2 points), and it comes out to 9 points instead of 10.

    Either dock off 1 point from one of the characters' Backgrounds or reduce Holdings or Retinue by 1 point....

  • The Predator movies

    To varying degrees they do capture the idea of a group of armed, well-trained individuals that have to deal with something utterly inhuman, with superior technology and abilities, and how woefully unprepared they are. And how even for a group of soldier meatheads, the unknown monster(s) in the jungles can be utterly terrifying.

    The third movie, Predators, even has an example of a hunter (Lawrence Fishburne's character) that's become so utterly paranoid and survivalist that he's willing to kill off the first human contact that he's seen in years, just...

    Moving on...

    p.33 Errant Sharely character sheet

    -Has too many Ability dots.

    Per the Freebie point chart, the extra Ability dots cost 16 freebie points total. And since these character sheets do not have any Merits or Flaws, there's no reason why Errant has 1 point more then the maximum amount of Freebie points given to starting characters. Combined with the points expenditure of 2 dots of Arts (10 points) and 1 dot of Willpower (2 points) this would bring the grand total of Freebie points spend to be 28 points.

    Reduce amount of Ability dots...

    Admittedly, I would not be surprised if that was the case. And reading through it again I did find out that it does mention "pooled Retinue" in the "The Locals" section (p. 27)...

    ...that said, there's nothing that says the same thing for the Holdings background. And the * that usually indicates some kind of footnote that explains it. But there is nothing of the sort for any of the character sheets....

  • In comparison to DE1, they didn't announce what the backer expansions and redirections were until 1 month after the KS finished. 2 months for DEC.

    It could be a bit...

    Granted the way how the KS for DE2 panned out a lot differently then DE1. So who knows if the wait until they announce is the same, sooner, or later.
