  • Like, according to the STV, the book has a number of authors

  • Primordial newcomer from what it seems, they plan on making a 2e Clan Book for every major clan. At least, a Nosferatu teaser of "coming soon" is presented at the end of the book

    Spencer from The Hills it is less of a novella and more of an supplement, not really an "expanded appendix" as much as its own splat book about providing different options for a Mekhet character

    Personally, I really like what I've seen. While when hearing "Night Horrors" I've thought we'll see something in the style of the Wicked Dead while it is instead two ghoul...

  • So while going through the book (which seems to be full of good stuff), I've noticed that in the Prince's Wrath rituals, the ritual self inflict a certain amount of damage to the user equal to 5 - Blood Potency. Assuming this is a error (as BP goes up to 10), should it be 10 - Blood Potency, or 5 - Lithopedia?

    Also, just out of curiosity- is there a reason that you avoided trating Setite Cruac as the Chaos Magic style from Secret of the Covenents other than not wanting to relay on another book?

    Other than that, this update looks really interesting and useful for both...

  • Well, that looks very interesting! Are the Norvegi in here still represent the last remain of some lost Clan? Just being curiouse. At any case, I would probably buy it in the next few days.

  • Well, it was likely a full course meal- there may have been at least six courses in that dinner. Maybe more- the Titanic had eleven, for example.

  • While I haven't run it, I've considered in my headcanon that under V20 rules, the Hecata would serve better as a Sect than as a Clan, even though it does loses some of the more "mystical" implications of the Familty Dinner.

  • Hunters would definetly be considered as "interacting" with the supernatural. Being an hunter is practically the act of the human soul clashing against the darkness and knowingly taking a stand against it (at least, in 2e, which was taken into account while writing the Contagion Chronicles). Rejecting the supernatural is a form of interaction with it- as the lack of interaction means being blind to it, closing your eyes as much as possible and pretending you have seen nothing.

    replied to On Pre-Industrial Demons
    One of the things that I liked in the Pain Prophet's Testament was the underlining concept that the God Machine did not changed as much as humanity has evolved enough to catch up with it- so the God Machine's level of technology was always advanced, and humanity reaches up to try and become like gods themselves. I think that this is more or less the foundation behind the Deva Corporation. Once, humans looked at angels and demons and thought they were divine horrors. Now, they look at the revolving gears and burning engines and tey tell themselves "hey, it is not that unfamiliar". One...

    started a topic Skin & Bones: 2e Conversion

    Skin & Bones: 2e Conversion

    So while I am working on my next STV title for Hunter and searching a project for my PhD, I've decided to take a break and train my homebrew writing skills for 2e- and what better path would be to do so other than experimenting on some long, fan loved classic? I mean, sure, I could practice on some of my previouse homebrew or canon oragnizations, however that feels like I would be "cheating" myself, as now it feels like I should keep such things for the STV (honestly, one of reasons I've more or less stopped making new homebrew in the forums is because of that reason, illogical as it...

  • Like, I sincerely can't agree with that sentiment. The idea that people should only be allowed to write about their own culture because they are simply unable to write something appropriate about any other culture is not only absurd, but it is also dangerous. By that logic, I am not allowed to write anything about Europe, as I am not European (or American, for that matter), and instead if I were to write off a fantasy inspired setting everything I'll write about knights and dragons etc will be racist. More than that, Europe is not just a single culture- so if someone from France wants to write...

  • Yeah, I think that my sister is a really great artist. One day, I'll manage to convince her as well :P

    EDIT- also, my sister asked me to say that if you liked her art, feel free to follow her account

  • *shruggs* I have not talked about those opinions as much as aboutb the solutions- which, again, IMO, it is to learn from those books, and do better research. but to judge that material by the standards of that time while understanding how those standard have evolved. I have no intention of starting a flame war in here.

  • The way I see it, trying to erase those books from the web is the virtual equivilent of "book burning", and I have seen enough people who actively support that idea (not necessrly anyone in this thread)...

  • Like, those books are very, very old, and in those days we didn't had the same resources for research that we have nowadays. Do they age well? No, but my opinion is that we can't judge the people of the past by the standards of the present. I mean, yeah Oriental Adventures was riddled with stereotypes, but time the old concepts get repuiblished and reworked, they become better and more accurate. You can't have cultural exchange without making some mistakes on the way, and my opinion is that erasing those mistakes is not the best solution. I personally am not sure about the whole sensitivity readers...

  • I too have always thought that reporting someone was the last thing one should do, after attempts to talk about the subject have failed. Live and learn, I guess?

  • This is the goal, but it may take some time- Geist 2e is out for a while, but it is yet to be opened for the STV, as far as I'm aware. While my original plan was waiting for 2e, but seeing how much time it could take have led me to publish it now. I guess that if there will be enough Hunter material on the STV, it may help to open 2e sooner, which will make everyone happy :P...

  • In that case, how would a random mage know that Arcadia is not a Lower Depth? When the Lower Depths are not based around lacking a overall Arcana but lacking an aspect of reality which they devour, what tools do mages actually have to seperate Arcadia from the Depths, assuming that they do not have the corebook to tell them otherwise?

    EDIT- I am playing the Devil's Advocate in here. I do not think that Arcadia is a Depth, I have even mentioned it as an "exception" in the text which simply does not fit the model, but still- the question is how do you know....

  • Worlds Stretched Thin [A Lower Depths Essay]

    (I apologize in advance for any spelling mistakes you will see here. For some reason, the auto correct no longer works here for me, so my regular spelling issues become so much more severe).

    Every once and a while, someone mentions the Lower Depths, and every once and a while, things quickly spiral into the endless argument about what the Depths actually are. While I do like reading about the Depths and writing about the Depths, the thing is that between Mage being the gameline with the most consistent and explored cosmology (well, maybe beside Mummy, but that's actually a part of...
