    So I felt a bit nostalgic, and I just had to say how awesome each of those three videos is. Seriously, when I watch them I just don't want them to end.

  • Ok, so some musing about the different potential afflictions-

    Like I mentioned earlier, those different curses seems to be what I call as "vampiric atavism" or "return to origin". The curses drive the Clan back to its original, pre-Kindred state, where they are mostly monsterous dead things. We have also mentioned that we may indeed have a number of examples for such creatures- like the Hollow form of the Mekhet, the Pijavicia for the Gangrel and the Ghuls from Wicked Dead to the Deva (which are both come from the Middle East, are related to Vice in some form,...

  • Well, considering that the Hollow are presented as their own Clan in 2e, I can only work with what I have. However, a relation between a "primitive Clan" and the "infections transformation" both makes sense and sounds interesting. The infection acts more or less as "returning to origin" for the vampire, while the Hollow are already the origin for the Mekhet (which are haunted by a ghost, which is an occult entity bound by banes, which makes sense). So while the Hollow will probably won't be the direct parallel to Malkavia/Noctuku, the Mekhet affliction should indeed...

  • I certainly would reccomend buying those books, as they are really good for both players and storytellers.

  • Spreading the Curse [Malkavia and Other Things]

    Trigger Warning- this post is going to use concepts which are disease related. As most of the world still suffers from COVID-19 at this point of time, we should be careful when talking about those subjects, as many people use RPG as a form of escapism. I am going to try my best to use alternative words and such, but if you have personal issues with the current pandemic specifically or with diseases in general, it may be better for you to skip this post.

    So why is it that every time that Yossarian and his team publuish something new, my brain goes on rambling about vampires?

  • While this book is really full of good stuff (just keep that parasite awaty from me, please), my two favorites are the Nowhere Men and the Noctuku Strain. I really like the Noctuku in this form (I prefer it over the original bloodline format, actually), and I kinda like to think about it as the Nosferatu's version of Malkavia (even though that throwing it together witht he Contagion also works, but that also works for Malkavia, so...). That kinda makes me think about what could be the other parallels for the rest of the Clans- even though that doing it simply for symmetry's sake could downgrade...

  • Well, considering that the gods in the CofD are divided between "so distant and mysterious that you will never meet them" (like Gaea and the Oracles) and "eldritch abominations which you regret of ever meeting" (like the Dark Mother and the God Machine), I think that in the terms of Vampire, thos blood gods would fall to the second category. The vampire may be able to commune with those things, but they would probably won't like the experience. As for describing them, well, they are probably hard to be defined, like any other divine entity in the setting....

    replied to Niobraran: What Do We Know?
    Up to this point I've thought about the Spoken's connection to voice as sirens of myth- but the idea of whale like entities which draw their power from the deep seems like a much cooler concept. Thinking on the Voice in the Trench as a strange, compelling whale song makes so much sense that now I can't not imagine it that way. I wonder if the Voice was killed at the end of the war, or if the Solars simply silenced it in some way, like sealing the trench through powerful magic.. or just a bunch of boulders or something like that :P

    replied to A new Pokémon thread?
    Well, it should be noted that much of pokemon actually thrives on nostalgia. At any case, my biggest issue with the new pokemon games is that they are way too easy compared to the original ones (like, seriously, I haven't lost a battle through the all of Shield's main story, and only lost in the Crown Tundra due to me not being prepared to have a battle right outside of the train station- not to mention that the puzzles are much easier compared to the original ones). So I won't call myself a genwunner, but it is dissapointing that the games now are so easy (and I'm not really a fan of the more...

  • I'm going to throw a cruveball in here and suggest the rise of Christianity in the ante-Nicene Period, as it is a time of many fragmented cults and heresies which compete against one another as one of the most major religions in the wolrds starts to take form, while people who are filled with religious fervor could be driven to the extreme, either due to being inspired by angelic beings or their own visions of heaven or by trying to analyze ancient texts and enforce their own understandings of the human soul in order to create their own versions of "perfected beings", driving the creation...

    replied to The D&D thread
    Well, our group is a bit large (7 players) and it was meant to have minions and we did went full nova on it because it is a god damn dragon, but we still had more luck than anything else- it almost succeeded its save against sleep, and two or three of the attacks almost missed but thankfully got a +1 due to our sorcerer which meant they just barely hit. If it had a slightly more health, things could have gone really, really bad for us- but we still got one of our members sperated from the rest of the party because she decided to take a different path during the earthquake, and now we need to find...

    replied to The D&D thread
    So in the 4e d&d game I am playing, we had to face a Earthquake Dragon (a young one, but still a dragon). So in order to deal with it, we drugged some meat with a sleeping potion and went hiding. Somehow, it worked (just barely), and then we decided to draw a magic circle in order to trap it. Then, we unleashed everything we had in order to attack the damn thing, and we got 203 damage when it has 206- and it also suffered from 5 ongoing damage, which meant that it managed to wake up and die- but not before it started an hell of an earthquake which almost killed us all. the DM was in awe from...

    replied to Staying Safe from the Virus
    So where I live, people constantly keep on complaining about the lockdowns, that covid is not really dangerous and that most people don't really die of the virus, and more than they are in an opinion that they don't need to get vaccinated because "the covid is not dangerous for young people" and that only those who are in danger should get the vaccine, which is clearly a dangerous substance. Fun fact- the reason that covid doesn't look dangerous in here is because only around 5% of the population even got infected by it, which is mostly because of the said lockdowns. So it's just so...

    replied to Yuletide Horrors
    Well, it's been a while since I wrote a new homebrew so.. let's see what I can come up with

    *crack*

    Winter Eaten

    There's something hungry about the winter- it is a season when the world grows cold and hostile, when life gets lost in the snow and the living gather around evergreen trees in order to remind themselves that this cold, dangerous time will pass, leading to the revive of the land with the coming of the spring. The cycle of the seasons, however, does not only express itself in the mundane world- hisil also twists and changes as Helios and Gaea dace...

  • So this is apparently Christmas and all, and as a part of the season I've decided to give 50% for 10 copies of igniting the Fire. It lasts until January, so get them while you can :P
