  • Ammm.. that's an hard choice. Ancient Bloodlines is beautiful, full of awesome setting material and player options. Immortals has a great concept and it explores it through some fascinating channels. Inferno is simply awesome, from the way it presents Hell and demons and up to the Possessed template and the Lucifuge's evil counterparts. Talking about the Lucifuge, Hunter deserves more than a mention, as it is my favorite gameline- and my favorite book in the line is Witch Finders. The Gutter Magic system, the plot hooks and the new organizations are among the first things which drew me to Hunter-...

    started a topic My CofD Blog!

    My CofD Blog!

    So after thinking about it a lot, I have decided to start a blog dedicated to the CofD! I plan on using that blog in order to detail thoughts, musings, setting analysis and all other kinds of things related to the CofD, including potential adapting of elements from other games (like to WoD or Exalted) to the setting. This would mostly be a brainstorming/musing/world building/fluff developing kind of blog, with any idea which would become stable enough would be adapted and posted in the forums with any detailed mechanics it may require. I plan on posting at least weekly- maybe more, depends on...

    well, that sounds like a potentially major shift in the origin of the Huntsmen from the preview! Colour me intrigued :P

    Now I must wonder (and forgive me for the Dreaming terminology) if those beings were more of a "Fomorian", or a "Tuatha"?...

    Eluveitie's A Rose for Epona seems to be a good inspiration for the Nemetondevos

    My bet? The Huntsmen. Or at least, the poor souls the Huntsmen gathered in their "Wild Hunts"

    (in my head canon, the Huntsmen once were the ancient form of the Wyrd, horned kings and queens who lived in their hunts, treating mankind as their prey- taking the sick and the dying, the young and the old as their own. One day, soon after Father Wolf's death at the late Neolithic, humanity has started to tell new stories in order to protect themselves from the hunters- the Gentry. One community at a time, the mysterious new Fae revealed themselves before mankind, offering pledges...

    replied to American Gods
    as I said before, I haven't read the book- so that was me trying to understand how the universe of American Gods work. If it is just as you said, I have no problem with that. Noragami (which I assume was greatly inspired by American Gods to the point I now call it "Japanese Gods") seem to use the same path, and as long as the metaphysics doesn't contradict itself, all is well. Thanks for the clarification, everyone!

  • hey- haven't you read the title? Don't ask questions! (laughing, laughing.. not laughing. The Exarchs would have your head! :P )

    Now seriously, as being part of the Heirs of the Lie, they have a patron Exarch- the Father, the master of Prime and lord of dogma. The only rule for the Endowments and organization is that they represent the Lie that specific Exarch tells (which is, in their case, "don't ask questions") and that they use the setting material of the splat they hunt for (which is, in this case, Mages). The exact details are open for interpretation- be it their ability...

    suspension of disbelief is defined by the willingness of the audience to believe in the reality the story is telling. It is a must thing to enjoy every story, or else the crowd starts questioning the story they are watching. The writer defines the reality the story takes place in, and as long as the story doesn't contradict the laws of that universe, the crowd is willing to suspend their disbelief and enjoy the story. There is no story without a suspension of disbelief, for once people stop believing in what the story tells, they don't care about it anymore. This is one of the most important

  • Considering that they are Beast hunters first and foremost, I would assume that the Reconstruction Era would be trivial. As they are blood bathers, Fall of Isireion is a possibility, although their mythology feels a lot more north European than Mediterranean. Speaking about Scandinavia, the Wolf and the Raven is a good option for them, especially since the Tales of the Dark Eras use it as the Beast Era. And of course, as Hunters, they have their place in the hunter eras- especially Doubting Souls, as all of the fear and paranoia would undoubtedly feed the Knight as much as it would feed their...

    that still doesn't make sense- Vulcan, Virginia is a real place. The trick for a good urban fantasy is do not stretch the suspension of disbelief too much. Saying that a real world community would just vanish or fail because of events in the movies, when in real life it is still exist, starts to harm the Suspension of Disbelief- which is a dangerous thing to do. And even if every bullet would fail, people won't forget Vulcan. Heck, he has theoretical celestial items in his name. His statue would still be there, and people wouldn't magically forget his name. I can't see any way that Vulcan would

    so, spoilers about the last episode-

    so, seeing Vulcan has died, that raise a question- we know that gods are made out of belief in American Gods, and that they die by being forgotten. However, now Odin has killed Vulcan- what's up with that? People won't stop believing in what Vulcan represents. The community would still carry his name, people wouldn't just forget who and what he is. The things he represent would still be worshiped, the statue built in his honor is still around. His name won't disappear from history and mythology books. If people still believe in their dead god,

  • in my university, there are certain classes which are outside of your main field of study which you have to take for some non-understood reason. The first time I took a class about Western Civilization, and I had to write an essay about Platonic philosophy- so instead of seeing the online lectures, I've just opened my 2e Mage copy and used it, up to referencing to the Abyss in some clever ways. Got 100/100.

    The next time was about Buddhism and Western Culture, and so for it I've used Mage once more, especially the To The Strongest chapter from Dark Era, as I had to talk about the...
