  • The Abyss is the set of impossible things. Not everything that can exist, not everything that doesn't exist, but specifically everything that can't exist. Things that are meaningful and possible are drowned and destroyed by exposure to the Abyss. The Abyss creates, like the primordial chaos of the Wyld envisioned by Werewolf, but the things which the Abyss creates are never things that belong in this world. They are by definition all incompatible, and contact with our world which can and does exist causes the rules of existence and possibility to break down. When a spell carries the influence...

  • What's your core gameplay loop?

    Vampires tell lies to keep the people they care about and the blood sources they trawl safe, while inevitably getting pulled into feuds that endanger those things.
    Werewolves discover threats to the stability of their territory and coordinate pack hunts to destroy those threats.
    Mages investigate paranormal anomalies and work to contain the fallout from their own ambitions and that of others.
    Hunters team up to hunt predatory monsters who are more powerful than they are.
    Deviants hunt down and are hunted down by malicious conspiracies....

  • ATP doesn't make any sense as fuel. It's a "just enough knowledge to be dangerous" situation: it doesn't take a lot of knowledge of biology to recognize that it's really weird to speak of adenosine triphosphate as something that you have a pool of and spend to activate superpowers. Plus it tonally clashes with all the other terms, being an acronym for a long scientific word. Stick with CofD's air of Forteana. Even if you want a scientific air, explore pseudoscience and obsolete science instead of real world confirmed science for a lexicon to raid. Maybe the pathogen is able to respire...

  • Don't contrast in setting terms. Setting definition comes after. What you're being asked about is to better define and delineate your thematic focus, and make sure it stands out as offering something the other games don't. Reality warping and whether your flaring power lashes out at you or others are window dressing.

    Speaking purely in terms of theme, how are Psychics not Mages? Because the themes you've described in your post are straight up Mage. Mage is about "I have a good idea and I'm going to run it violently into the ground" way more in practice than it is about philosophical...
