  • I would just like to note that they don't worship the dead as much as they worship Death- them being Death's Chosen in order to fight the darkness is the main myth of the conspiracy, so their true goals are probably very invested in the dead and the cycle of death and descent. They strike me much as having less interest in the Underworld and more in the Twilight- like anchoring themselves to the material in order to avoid the consuming Below, but that's more of an interpertation than text, I think. Perhaps Monica's Geist fiction could be useful in order to understand how they work with the Underworld...

  • They probably just got the (potentially justified) impression that people liking Hunter groups do not like seeing those groups being officially shanked with nothing but a single line or word to explain it. While the comparison to Les Mysteres is still there, the reference to them getting defunct was removed. The line referring to TFV destroying Merrick is also gone, which we can be thankful for considering the... complications it brought. The bear Lodge is now rumored to be gone but potentially still around, with them being absorbed into the Abbey being removed. The only groups which are stated...

  • Well, if you find the Blueprints part useful, perhaps a deeper formalism will help you even further? :P

    If you need help in creating Blueprints for Sovereignty, here are the sub steps I'll use to design it-

    Endowments: obviously, the attempt at Sovereignty should utilize the Endowments of the conspiracy as a concept. The AKD would use relics, TFV would design Advanced Armory, the Lucifuge would have hell powers, etc.

    System: the magical and/or religious paradigm which the conspiracy would use in order to achieve their goal. it could be a fictional concept,...

  • The Les Mysteres are not longer defunct. It was removed from the final book. Also, while they can work with others, it would only a) if they don't have death magic powers (hunting them is part of their Vigil after all) and b) allow them to use their Endowments in secrets without being watched, which is easier said than done.

  • it would have made sense- except that, according to their Vigil, every other person who has supernatural powers is not pure and those who use their powers to manipulate the dead deserve death, which means that they will avoid working with Krewes of any kind most of them time. That's one of the things which makes me not like the Council- that they are very much leaned to work alone and not cooperating with other organizations, unless they lack any supernatural abilities and are willing to give their members enough space to practice their Endowments in solitude. They definetly share those themes,...

    Council of Bones- Issues and Thoughts

    So when the 2e Kickstarter launched, the manuscript have introduced us three new organizations- Nine Stars, SWORN and the Council of Bones. While I loved Nine Stars from the moment that I read them, I found out that I didn't really like the other two organizations. Now, I am the first person who says that no hunter group is for everyone and the reason that Hunt is so customizable is because of that reason, but the thing is that up to this point, I didn't really dislike any of the groups- oh, sure, there were some groups I barely cared about, like the Heritage House or the Illuminated Brotherhood,...

  • Yeah, the concepts are similar- even though you dealt more with "how the world would look like if a conspiracy would win" and I with "how can a conspiracy win"- basically, where my idea ends with Sovereignty, you examined the post-Sovereignty setting, even though my way went way more gunzo I think :P Happy you liked it!...

  • Conspiracy Theories/Vigil Ascended- When Hunters Win

    One of the things I generally like in media is over complex, cosmic, occult plans with symbolic meanings where through a sequence of events and strange actions one could change the world- think about Father's plan in Full Metal Alchemist, SEELE's in Evangelion, the Headhunter's arc in Pandora Hearts or Allister's plan in A Certain Something Something. So yeah, it seems like it is a anime trope, but I am an anime fan, so it shouldn't come as a surprise, isn't it?

    Anyway, considering that fact, I've always found the concept of a Tier 4 game pretty awesome- archamsters, for example,...

  • First- the chapters are the "new thing", so it makes sense to give them some focus- but I wanted to emphasis that the chapters are a natural part of the AKD's formation. Personally, I don't think I didn't focus on the AKD itself- they are the Minoan Labyrinth Cult, they are the conspiracy which spread together with Alexander, they are the ones who had to deal with the Inquisition, the French Revolution and the Witch Trials. They are the ones who went to the New World, fought against the Tecuanimeh and celebrated in Nassau during the Golden Age of Piracy. The AKD are ever present in the...

  • There are two main reasons I've made paragons- the first is that there are people who want a more "supernatural hunter", someone with a bit of buff against monsters. That's however, not the main reason- the prime reason was that I needed an heroic template to represent the champion in the Vigil Ascended scenario, where someone has to embody the ancient battle which would bring a new golden age. That idea made me thinking about other potential "champions" of other conspiracies, with the idea was having only one such paragon per organization, being a vessel of the conspiracy's...

  • It is a valid interpretation! Indeed, paragons are people who embody their Code/Vigil in a way which it, in a way, manifest itself through them, making them into its vessels, which makes them intoo a bright mirror for the slasher existence. On the other hand, they also have some resemblance to Deviants, especially the more "advanced" ones which are a part of a conspiracy, as they are basically a tool of their organization- only instead of a broken soul, they draw power from the collective Vigil of their group. Basically, they are people with a messed up soul, yet instead of having it...

  • Into the Labyrinth- AKD Expansion Fanbook

    So originally I wanted to make it into a STV product, but my sister is still stuck on the art for some previous project which makes it ever more likely that this will just sit down in my google docs and rot away- so I decided to, at the very least, put it here on the forums so people could enjoy it. If it will be well received (and the art pipeline would finally clear) I may release it to the STV, but this could also be an opportunity to get some feedback on it and see what needs to be changed- because I did went wild with some of the concepts here. In short, in this doc, you will find all kinds...

  • If you decide to go to this very murky territory, I would recommend giving a look at 2e version of Belial's Brood in Night Horrors: Spilled Blood. It is the closest you'll ever get to "playable draugr", officially at least.

    As for Embraced slashers- well, slashers are soulless, while vampires do generally have a soul- I am not sure if draugr also lack a soul, but if they do than yeah, I guess that a slasher becoming a draugr would make the most sense. Otherwise, maybe a larvae or another form of mindless vampirism would work.

    For those interested in the draft for "Japan Lost" and don't want to search the forums, here is the link

    While some parts of it will require adjustment, most of the writeup is really cool, IMO
