    Also, I've always considered Hunters as being an "advanced mortal template"...

  • Also, killing monsters (meaning, people with Dread Powers) is much lesser of a Breaking Point (if at all?) in the new edition

  • That is if you treat humans, and hunters, as rational people, who judge something purely by how beneficial it is to them, and have no twisted ideas for moral. I can clearly see why someone would claim that murdering witches for power is bad, but eating her would be worse, and as such it is better to have less stable power in exchange for not falling "too far" on the moral scale. It is not rational, it does not make sense on the paper- but humans do have the tendency to act irrationally in such cases. Eating monsters for power needs a certain type for personality, one which is different...

  • except of the fact that, well, the Faithful eat their victims for power

    (now, I'm not saying that the Firestealers are good people, and I do assume that some would be deranged enough to practice the rites of the Faithful upon witches, and that the Faithful claim that eating monsters is not cannibalism, I assume that the majority of the Brotherhood would say "hey, I may kill people- but I'm not a freaking cannibal". It is not to say that they won't be happy to study and try to advance their Rite of Hecate using the knowledge of the Faithful's practices, but even evil has...

  • I think that the Heritage House should be at the top of the list, as what we have about them is kinda basic and blend IMO. The Scarlet Watch as a modern/past conspiracy version is something I would find really interesting, as I really like the group. The Ahl al Jabal could use a more in depth writeup, even though their current version is not bad or lacking in some critical way. Among the conspiracies, the Cainte Heresy and the Faithful of Shulpae are ones I would like to see expanded, as I've never felt the urge to play them, even though that they are interesting by themselves. While I personally...

  • Actually, my suggestion was that Bat has shattered her Omphalus Stone, and as a result became the Obsidian Butterfly, a.k.a, turning from a Pangaean into an idigam. I'm not saying that all of the Moon Banished are former Pangaean, but it was established that the Pangaeans could become spirits, and the idigam are a form of spirit, right? In my head canon, a pangaean turning into an idigam is something in the style of a mage becoming one of the Mad- that is, shattering their own soul and losing their sense of identity in return, while also gaining a weird ability to twist and change the reality...

  • So while I've never read Stephan King or watched It, the discussion about "It as an idigam" by Cinder has made me to make a small research about the subject and I must say that the 12 Guardians do sound like something cool to adapt as Pangaean, even if without the whole Beams thing and the rest of the myth (unless you use the White as the God Machine and the Red as Inferno/Dark Mother or something). I mean, Wolf is already written as one such Guardian- and who knows? Perhaps he was the Guardian of the "CofD's Beam", together with Bird/Eagle, or Snake, or even Rat (with him...

  • You mean, which existing hunter groups needs more fleshing out, or ideas for new organizations?

    And as I felt I should give you something for this week, even though I lack time to do anything too big, I present to you my updated, complete list of Hunters organization ideas! Hope you'll like it!

    I've never thought otherwise- only something that desperate characters may think to try in the setting, or a recruitment tool for the Scelesti during the Contagion- "you want to survive? Join us, and rejoice"...

    I must say that I do wonder if the Abyss would grant a certain immunity from the Contagion- as it always tries to replace what that is by what that isn't, which would allow to remove the "contagious parts" of the object in question. It may even be used as some sort of chemotherapy- you know, using a poison to kill the disease, and hope that the cancer would die before the patient. Inferno, on the other hand, may go way too well with the Contagion, like a mold which grows over the rotting corpses killed by the plague. It could be fun to try and throw the all three into a closed room and...

    I think that its because the Cryptocracy is all about "maintaining the world's order/ regulating chaos", which is much more the Guardians shtick. The Silver Ladder are more about creating a "perfect/sacred society", which could have more in common with the Jeremiah's religious trappings. Still, we'll have to wait and see, I assume....

    Well, the Rosetta believe it to be a message from another world which someone has to decipher (probably), and the Jeremiah see it as divine intervention/retribution/revelation/whatever, so yeah, it seems that there are purely mystical groups among the Sworn (and probably, the False)...

    maybe because that among the many supernatural structures, the Machine is the biggest and the most noticeable? I mean, the chances that a know-to-nothing mortal would stumble upon an infrastructure are much, much higher than the chances they would stumble upon an Avernian Gate, Locus, Neithian Architecture, Hallow, Hedge gates and Wastelands combined, most probably

    (yeah, I'm a bit exaggerating, but Infrastructures are still the most common occult matrix, simply because the God Machine is the most dominant power in the material world. Well, maybe Ley lines and nodes can compete with...

  • As a Dark Angel fan, I am extremely pleased seeing this.

    Also, now I wonder if the "mystery antagonist" is the hunter, or the Lost Lineage survivor (which is either Amirani or Hollow, I assume, as those are practically the only options I'm aware of :P)...

  • Before Saul's Purge, Moros would have been feared by the rest of the magical community- but accepted as being necessary to speak with the dead and deal with taint. They would be in alliance with the Cult of Mot, and would work with the Dovrim (even though the Dovrim would be "more tainted" than the Moros, considering that sin eaters are actually dead, while the Necromancers are still alive). After the Purge, however, their power structure is mostly fractured, and with the Witch of Endor being seen as the hero which defeated the Purger, they move away from their "outcast" state...

  • So a question- after having Bird's writeup, do you still think she'll make a good patron/progenitor for the Distant Ones? I mean, it seems like the werefalcons don't have much in common with Bird, as they lack her cruelty, time/space manipulation abilities or augury, and have instead a major focus around royalty and distant kingship, as well as freedom and worthiness. Perhaps they are instead the children of Sky, or heck, maybe even the Sky Hunter (the Firstborn, that is)? Maybe Sky Hunter was the child of Wolf and Bird (don't ask why, seriously), and they have developed the Distant One's ritual...
