  • I got one.

    Shazam (formerly Captain Marvel) as a Noble, from Princess: the Hopeful.

    Alternate form with superior attributes? Check.

    Supernatural gifts that only work when transformed? Check.

    Supernatural powers treat either form as a separate person from the other? If Young Justice is anything to go by, yes.

    Hopeful child fighting against evil? Check.

    He doesn't really have regalia, but he still fits pretty well. Not sure off the top of my head what court he'd be, though....

  • Epikrato and Katastrofi, mostly. They mostly blast and make hard-light constructs.

    Sometimes they act on their own, including finding a new wearer, so there might be Automata in there....

    Well, we could have Coatl, probably for Life (since Quetzalcoatl of Aztec myth was the twin of the canine death god Xolotl), but I'm not sure what would represent Death alongside it.

    Or we could use Dragons (Life) and Basilisks (Death).

  • I put the Supernal in the Astral sometimes, too. I put Faerie in the Astral as well, though, and if I try hard enough, I can justify just about everything being in the Astral or influenced by it....

  • Yes...and no. We're making Genii a little more focused in what each one can build by constraining them to Fields and Postulate/Inferences (I was using the term Postulate, but other people here are saying Inferences, and both terms work.).

    In 1E, a Death Star just requires Katastrofi, Skafoi, Prostasia and maybe Automata, and then the Resources and time to match.

    In 2E, a Death Star requires you to have Fields that relate to space travel, lasers, and life support, and then you still need the Axiomata in order to use the Inferences, and then you need to find the material...

    I had quick-and-dirty rules for playing a mortal with access to Gifts. Basically, you need a Spirit to cut it into your soul and body (1 Aggravated damage, and it's got to be a fairly powerful spirit to do it, Rank 3+). Your Integrity maximum permanently drops by 1 (the human soul was never supposed to be sliced up like this), but you gain a Gift and 1 Facet from it (and an Essence pool of 1), and can get more Facets with Experiences.

    And yes, this is definitely something an Idigam might decide to do.

  • I suppose. They benefited quite a bit from those boost themselves, though.

    Also, by this token, are fangames in an alternate version of the universe(s) OPP controls, then? Is the ChroD that includes, say, Irin: the Announced, a separate reality from the official ChroD?

    And does the original New World of Darkness still exist in its own universe?...

  • Alright, so here's my cosmology of the World of Darkness, starting from the Supernal.
    • The Supernal isn't a "place" per se, but it can be imagined as a place, and it contains the most abstracted, conceptual versions of everything, symbolized to such a point that it's not comprehensible without couching it in metaphor and pataphor.
      • The Abyss is technically part of the Supernal, and the most directly accessible one. The reason it's as accessible as it is, is because it borders on the Anima Mundi, and the contact between Astral reflection and Supernal Truth creates the inconsistency

  • Renegade/Low Restraint: Higher base Havoc, more Jabir penalties, less Mania costs, can more freely/publicly break social rules without hesitating

  • They are driven by a singular obsession. While a Mage might "obsess" over a few things, a Genius is consumed with their obsession. Finding immortality, conquering the world, getting that Szechuan Chicken Sauce, it's all they want, and it constantly threatens to push them past the edge of morality in its pursuit. A Mage has obsessions, but a Genius is capital-"O" Obsessed....

    replied to 1001 Vampire Story Hooks
    297) So, apparently being in charge of a city devoid of vampires, with a bunch of bored hunters with nothing to hunt, kind of sucks. Not to mention, apparently some giant magic space computer(?) called the "God-Machine" apparently needed to have vampires around for some reason or another. The thing has offered you a choice: Step into its "time splinter" and fix things, and any memory of events as they transpired will be erased. Refuse, and the God-Machine will alert ever Hunter in the area to your hideout....

  • The nWoD/ChroD world is the result of the Old World of Darkness's Technocracy attempting to stamp out the Traditions once and for all, by forcing the consensus to destroy itself. They basically got everyone to agree that reality was emphatically not determined by consensus so hard that the consensus would erase itself, which worked, but the ensuing Paradox broke the universe so hard that it shattered and reformed into the New World of Darkness (with some pieces of it breaking off to form Monte Cook's World of Darkness, as well as the various "Shard" realities). What remains of the Consensus...

    replied to Leviathan: the Cult
    Well, for starters, it approaches family in exactly the opposite direction to Beast.

    Beast takes the view of family as a group of people with whom you voluntarily bond and associate. "You choose your family."

    Leviathan goes the exact opposite direction, a family of blood with no choice in the matter, regardless of how shitty they are. "You don't choose your family."

    Then there's the fact that it is objectively not fun to be a Leviathan, and a Leviathan who tries to use their supernatural state as a force for good is basically about as...
