  • The way I see it, time is far from Linear in the case of Atlantis- Atlantis is a symbol. As such, it defines every possible timeline, and it existed in every timeline. However, in one such timeline, the Exarchs took over and removed Atlantis from the Supernal and sent it to the Abyss, making it that in no world Atlantis actually existed. What you have is ruins of countless Atlantises which never existed, and no matter how far you will go in time you will never find a world which is not Fallen. I think that Dave once said something like that. Again, that's how I view things, and this is a fan material,...

  • Oh, there are Watchtowers- it is simply that they are much more "picky" than the Bound are, so I imagine there are less Watchtower mages and more Bound mages. However, quantity isn't everything, and with the change of conditions, it is the "watchtower Awakening" which won while the other went more or less extinct. Evolution is a nasty lady, after all.


    If anything, that's what I'm afraid of- that Atlantis would actually devour the setting and become the main focus of it. I don't want other templates to become secondary players in this Era. There are enough...

  • yeah, I would go with souls for now, unless someone has some good argument to do otherwise.


    If homo sapiens are the only ones with souls, I think they would prey mostly on those as they should generate more/better Vitae (as feeding on humans against feeding on animals).


    I will not answer that, in that case :P


    sounds like a good idea


    Perhaps, but again, I would first like to investigate better the concept of the "primitive templates" before thinking about the standard ones


    I don't know,...

  • As history is not my strongest point, I thought to play it around the start of decline of the Neanderthals, whenever it may be. If someone has a better idea, I'm open for suggestions!...

  • But.. but I LOVE the time manipulation/editing shtick :P The way I see it, Atlantis never truly existed, no matter how far you come back in time, the world is still Fallen, because it always was, and always will be. There is no world before Atlantis, because it never existed in the first place. Considering that I aim to portray this more as a Dark Era and less as a Shard, I believe we should take whatever we do know about those times and treat them as "true", so yeah, there were dinosaurs, the moon was formed and humans did evolved. Oh, there would definitely be crossing to Times Which...

  • My bad- I got things mixed a little bit. Thanks for the correction. Still, I think that not losing Essence in the Shadow is "close enough" for being considered as more "native to the Shadow" than spirits are....

    both and neither. They are the outcome of the so called "Essence Alchemy", where they use it in order to meld themselves into the bodies of the recently dead. Still rough concept, of course....

    except that, you know, the Contagion corrupts any supernatural power it comes in touch with. I feel like you can't actually count on any of the regular powers and rules when you deal with it- at the very least, you need to be very careful when you do so....

  • So, here are my thoughts about Primitive Templates, giving 1-3 such concepts per gameline. Remember that those templates are meant to be weird, as it is the first time that the supernatural starts to adapt to the rising homo sapiens (also, as a side note, in the CofD's context, I think that the difference between the homo sapiens and the other humans would be quit simple. Homo sapiens has souls. The rest, didn't).

    Treat this as some food for thought, and feel free to suggest your own concepts-

    Vampire- for now, I think about strix-animated corpses who actually retain...

    Does Reflection also has a strange interest in radioactive energy, and has a tendency to watch things until they break in modern days? :P

  • Old, Old World [Upper Paleolithic Dark Era Brainstorming]

    This world is old.

    It has been existed for billions of years, starting as a cloud of cosmic dust gathered by the paralyzing grip of gravity and uncompromising, electromagnetic forces. It has been melded from rock, ice and iron, heated by the forges of a new, bright star. It was hit by countless celestial objects, like thousands of molten hammers shattering and melding its surfaces. It has birthed a sibling and a child, born from its own, molten flesh. As it cooled down, it breathed atmosphere from its cracks, and covered its scarred face with oceans deep and cold. At certain point,...

    little to none. The Lost would probably be suspicious of the Tuatha, believing they are probably connected to the Gentry in one way or another. The Tuatha would deny any connection, and would think that the Gentry must be Fomorians or some other kind of Fae exiled from the Dreaming. Some may theorize that perhaps the Gentry are a form of Tuatha who instead of reincarnating into mortal bodies, have survived by leeching the creativity and souls out of mortals instead. But metaphysically speaking, the Dreaming and the Wyrd would look each other at the same awe as the one scientists has when they...

    The Underfolk are a concept I have for an underground civilizations which lurk beneath the surface, kidnapping surface dwellers and worshiping defile powers. Still at a rough subject stage, of course, but I do like the concept. Something between the Time Machine's Morlocks and D&D's Drow and other Underdark races.

    As detailed in the cosmology thread, the Consensus is based upon Malkhut's natural ley lines, generated from the pieces of Ptah which cling to the souls of future Speakers (or mages). Metaphysically, "Consensusal" magic work on similar principles as Supernal...

    I won't say a "ruler", but he is not one of them either. He is to the Wounds what Father Wolf was to Pangaea- the guardian of the Wounds, and the metaphysical conduct through which the Maeljin direct their will. They don't serve him, but they still recognize him as a figure of importance, and it may be very likely that destroying him could do the Wounds what the fall of the Great Predator did for Pangaea....

  • Again, it depends on the level of success of the Lodge. I believe that at best the Lodge would get Father Wolf to the level he had when he died, and even that's its not likely. You may rule otherwise, but that's the way I see it.




    I didn't meant to say that the tribe as whole would feel betrayed. Hence the question mark at the end of the line. I've talked about the possibility that at least some packs and lodges, especially those who aim to become the new Father Wolf, would feel. I'm sorry if it wasn't clear, but I didn't want to derail the thread too much....

  • I don't know- I personally think he would be quit resentful and far from as powerful when he died, not to mention at his peak- sure, still powerful enough to change the world, but still greatly weakened. Again, that's entirely depends on how you view the Great Predator and your own personal interpertation, but the way I see it dying would greatly alter the Great Predator's personality. Would he start slaughtering Uratha for their Essence? Would she attack her own Firstborn for what she sees as betrayal? Would the Storm Lords feel betrayed for having their fate "denied" from them by Urfarah's...

  • Well, Father Wolf was a terrifying thing to behold back when he was alive- I highly doubt that dying has made him kinder. I could easily see Uratha, both Forsaken and Pure, who decide that perhaps having the Great Predator revived was not the best idea, and that in order to stop the world from turning into Hunter's Paradise/Living Hell for everyone else, they may need to put him down again.

    I don't know about you, but "dead gods being revived" is never a good thing in my book.
