  • You might have the pre-errata version of the book; mine says "Determine free Resistance Attribute Dot: Composure, Resolve, or Stamina" on the quick reference. It's not tied to Path in 2e, you just pick one.

    A battle of liars with cosmic power on offer, both looking to exploit the other and deny them the spirit of their deal together.

  • The Chronicles of Darkness rebranding isn't meant to be associated with the second edition rules; those were out for a good enough while before the name rebranding. It was a licensing thing.

    In other words, the Chronicles of Darkness forums here are for both first and second edition nWoD, and you're welcome to post here.

  • I mean, I don't honestly think Requiem is mutually incompatible with vampire badassery that doesn't necessarily find much when it delves deep beneath the surface of a character, either. I enjoy it when personal drama and art emerge from the interactions within the game, and I've rolled self-loathing, alienated educated Catholics doomed to a theologically untenable damnation, but I've also rolled opportunistic lunatics hiding behind a thin visage of human sentiment, with "do a fun homicide" on their list of aspirations. The best games meet somewhere in the middle.
