  • There was also a Dreamborn Lineage for Prometheans in 1e, which was represented as Extempore in 2e.

    Revenants- Part 3!
    Kinda straightforward title this time, ha?

    I must say that the all "communities of the debased" kind of thing really got my expectations high. Hope I won't be disappointed.

    Well, when you are a lot weaker than the competition, you have to learn how to work together, right?

    Kinda dig the all social structure examination. It is done in a good way, without becoming tiresome.

    Seriously, putting the emphasis upon revenant as pack hunters vs Kindred as lone predators makes a lot of sense, and grounds their place in...

    yeah, while reading through the book I've also started to have some cosmological thoughts along that line- only that I called the Curse as the Song, which is the concept of vampirisim as whole, while the Blood being the product of the first revenant starting a true Clan, creating- for the first time- the concept of "Kindred". The Song stirs the Blood, and the Blood answers by absorbing more accursed beings into its line, turning them into a "family", until it eventually falls from grace and is claimed by the Song once more. Of course, just as the Blood came from the Song, the...

    makes sense. I do remember many references, but I've thought it was a fan term, not official one. I probably saw it once or twice- but I probably saw it as a metaphorical thing instead of some entity which is the manifestation of vampirehood. That the outcome of having some problems at focusing while reading long texts, especially when they lack some story structure. That's why I prefer my game books more as manuals instead of masses of words, so I can jump between sections without feel like reading the book drains the life out of me (hence why I just can't bring myself to read the Clan books...

    Revenants- Part 2!

    (what I'm listening to while reading the chapter- because everything is so dark that I need to balance it somehow :P )

    So if dhampirs are the eternal teenager, revenants are the eternal "mistake" who caused their mother to get stuck alone with a baby at 16 years old and hating her child for that? Makes sense.

    Again, capital Blood- was it also a thing in 2e and 100 years of night that I missed?

    Ooooooh. Dynasties. I like those. I really like how they are presented- a "royalty among the debased" and "community...

    replied to Hunter-Cult: Cage of Shadows
    Strains of the Cursed Blood- Children of the Night
    Here is the thing- the Cage of Shadows are, at least partially, a sex cult. Lilith is, after all, a temptress she-demon. It only makes sense that many of their rituals would include, in one way or another, sex. Sure, they are also a blood cult and a demon cult, is it rarely looks pretty- but it is done. On the other hand, the Cage are definitely not a fertility cult- after all, Lilith's womb is barren, and she can only give birth for demons. As such, the said ceremonies usually don't bare fruit- some, more radical members of the cult mutilate...

    I consider the Humanity roll as being "Humanity based". As long as Humanity is involved some way or another, I'm satisfied.

    And yeah, I know the writer shared their notes on the Discipline- I'm just disappointed it wasn't in the finale book. If you want, you could put here a link to the post, so if someone who reads the thread would want to refer to it, they could easily do so?...

    Just read the Silver Syndicate section. Wow. You've really managed to capture the very essence of the group, so to speak (pun intended). Loved everything you added- waiting eagerly to see their splash art!

    Also, it reminds me I should make some free time to work on the rest of the groups which would be added to the supplement. So much to do, so little time..

    Chapter 2- Revenants
    THE NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD BEGINS!!!

    Dante's Inferno quote. That's raaaaaaaad.

    Once against capital Blood as entity. So it's official? The Blood is Requiem's Wyrd/Principle/God Machine? I'll have to work it to my cosmology.

    Well, I must say I do like the opening paragraph. I really does make you think that revenants has always been in Requiem, unlike dhampir.

    "Embrace of long lost clans whose blood runs as thin as water"- that's awesome. "From Revenant you came and to Revenant you shall return"...

    so let's return to subject, shall we?

    Dhampir- last post!

    The "dhampirs as NPCs section".

    Dhampirs- the incarnated doom of their parents.

    Wait- Final Demise? I think that's an errata stuff. Was it mentioned in the thread?

    Yeah, dhampirs do make good antagonists.

    The regular "don't abuse your players" kind of thing.

    Actually, it looks like that section is quit good- much better than some other sections in that chapter.

    I'm really disappointed that there isn't some extra material...

    replied to Kingdom of Atlantis [Shard]
    so, here is my basic idea for an alternative setting based around the Darksword Chronicles. That's the general outline of the setting, and I'll start with the needed mechanical modifications in future posts. Tell me if there is something you are extremely excited to see (such as Mysteries /Orders /Exarchates /Watchtowers /Nameless /Monsters /etc) so I'll know what to write first!

    Kingdom of Atlantis [Shard]

    (inspired by the Darksword Chronicles)

    Welcome to the magical land of Atlantis.

    Long ago, so long that no written record of the time has survived since that time, the Ancient Ones has left the World of Sleep where magic has died out, and their kind were chased down and killed for being Awake. Using a great magic preformed by the the representatives of the Eleven Awakened Mysteries, the Ancients has gathered whatever little magic which was left in the Sleep and reached out through space and time, fate and spirit, life and death, mind, void and God, and reached to the Heart...

  • Bloodlines I like (two of each Clan)-

    Spina- I just adore they way the "vampire knight" concept, and it makes some real sense as a part of the Daeva themes. In 2e, I assume most of their powers would be Majesty Devotions, with the extra Discipline being Resilience perhaps? Maybe too OP, but still.

    Zelani- I like the all mysterious atmosphere they have around them, and the "being in the right place and the right time" kind of thing. In 2e I would give them Auspex and make their Discipline into Majesty/Asupex Devotions.

    Bohagande- I like...

    yeah, I do have some words which I make such mistakes (it took me awhile to stop writing "Exrach" instead of Exarch, for example). Noted.


    Almost. There is one more section in the dhampir chapter, and then I'll more to revenants. I try to not read ahead of time in order to document my reaction to the book in real time....
