    I never actually removed it but over the last 30 years I can't recall a single player ever actually using it....

    Bill Bridges.....theres a few things that I kind of wish Ethan had totally burned when he took over rather than just buffed down to nubs and smoothed over....maybe the Swords wouldn't have popped back up in W20 and led to the whole Twitterati believing all Get were Nazis and.....well...thats a lot of dominos.

    I am rather amused by the whole lupus thing though, if theres no mechanical effect to being lupus theres technically nothing stopping my 14 month old walking out of the woods with a Phd, a defensive driving certification and the ability to build a PC from scratch........

    Ok, I have to ask for examples cos I've gone through this thread twice now and can't find a single negative comment about Forsaken....

    Just seems a bit too ' gamey' to my old simulationist brain I guess. That kind of mechanic tends to take me out of game world and back to the sheet.

    Very True, I suppose it does speak a bit to my tendency to play hard scrabble street level games where pretty much any one of those possesions would be a life changer.

    Perhaps it would run into the granularity issue but perhaps you could implement something that would allow you to use the background more often at a risk of reducing its rating?...

    I agree with the general concept but it tends to break down a little bit if every level of skill gives you 'free' equipment; Take Drive get a car, Computer you have a laptop, Firearms you get a rifle, Animal ken you get a puppy, Politics you get a......textbook? intern? Rolodex?

    The once per session thing is weird especially if its a planning session where your using your Backgrounds strategically.

    Yep, that was my first thought as well. When did crop-rotation become a defining characteristic of Stags Chosen?...

    The weird thing to me is they have apparently already done playtesting but only in piecemeal ways with vast swathes of the book unwritten as yet.

    Last I heard the Rage mechanic has been reworked almost half a dozen times so it seems that unlike H5/V5 at least they are actually listening to some of the playtest feedback.......fragmented though it is....

    I mean....that is the case. There are Silver Fang Houses from SE Asia, Middle East, Russia, Germany, Britain ( as well as the standard US/Canada)...there are a bunch of Fallen Houses as well of somewhat vague heritage that may have once been present in India/Turkmenistan/Crimea etc. as well as Rome and others. I would agree a few more non-extinct Houses to the east of the Fertile Crescent wouldn't have gone astray....
