  • Humans understand part of Aether as akin to the principle of entropy, but it is also a waste product from Essence of a sort, so I'd call for Forces and Spirit....

    Under most circumstance, if the mage (or other user with a 5 dot in Arcana) is able to use a single spell, a point of willpower and without problem about 20 people are unmade without any clash of wills or anything like it. But yes, in a 'real' scenario mages are far from the OP-ness they are generally described as. But, as with most dangerous foes, if you outnumber them, you'll probably win. The question is, how much is it going to cost.



    To be fairly honest about the Countermagic numen, it doesn't seem to be all to common either, and the rules a tid bit broken.

  • Is it just me or is there some real resemblance between the Ocean of Fragments and the Ocean Ouroboros/Abyss we see here? As well as the Hermit and the Old Man? It really feels like the Ocean of Fragments is the Underworlds 'reflection' of the Abyss, but that might just be Mage Supremacy™.

    Also, I feel like the woman depicted on the lead coins all ghosts get is someone important in the big picture of the cosmology, anyone more into this that has some insight?

    Get protean 1 and let you coterie members spill some blood on the ground for you.
    Werewolf buddy and unnatural affinity is surely the greatest blood supply you can find.
    Otherwise, as you and others have pointed out, there are more then a few ways to get around the restrictions. Even WP and a decent Masque/Dirge can help you out....

  • Yes, locally much stronger in some places then others for sure, but in the global position things are changing over the years. The world isn't as deadly with it's unnecessary conflicts as it used to be, and religion has not a strong grip on humanity as a whole as it had earlier, and nation states, borders and nationality and race is not as much a thing as earlier. Change takes time, and in the case of whom among the exarchs who wield the most powers, those struggles can take millennia. Or a revolution can come suddenly, like in the case of the Eye. It can't have taken many years for it to topple...

  • It's a conflict of global (cosmic) proportions on which of the ministries are the hegemonic (no pun) ones. The rise and fall of a progenitor ministry could take centuries. Global mercantilism, trade and the idea of globalisation and the capitalist system has had hundreds of years in the making, but it is still not enough to topple the Hegemonic ministry. The rise of nationalism once again seen in the world is probably a strong kick back from the Hegemonic ministry to defend it's position as progenitor.

    But no, it probably ain't true that it's wrong. Nationalism is still trending down...

  • To be fair, one of my favorite archetypes of the political Gangrel is the aggressive CEO businessman, using force of will and aggressive takeovers and bullying as her modus operandi. And to be fair, both business and politics can be really dirty and animalistic. More then a few politicians, executives and managers rule as if they where the team alpha....

  • Well these so called "problems" are what you make of them. As a ST that's almost only running modern games in CofD I might have some input.
    First, as other points out, the supernatural is out there, but people ignore, rationalize and forgets and go about their life as if nothing, both by supernatural means and both sociological and psychological reasons.

    Most common, mundane and basic information is for the most part easily available online. This works great to get some basic information into the PC's hands, but remember, you as a ST is the sole adjudicator for what...

  • Yeah I very much doubt it as well. However, fine place for a devotion that would allow for real time face to face using of the "psychic" disciplines. I also remember a spirits touch on video tapes and such from the Mekhet book if i recall that one correctly....

  • Well. for Awe, I tend to roleplay them very socially, talking about the consequences around them, their jokes are funny, they say the comforting words, the right words, they seem to be the kind a guy that people want to be with, etc etc. This is both a way to get a feel of that starstruckness the power gives but also says something to the players and their PCs. Can it at times give away that the npcs are using awe in a meta way, sure but I fail to see that as a negative thing on their own. But then again, I have players that add to play, not play against me as a ST etc, they tend to avoid negative...

  • There's no reason to suspect you could't use teamwork in meditation. Example, soothing voice helping you to relax, mindfulness guide or even a hypnotist could help you meditate, or a Yoga teacher or a spirit guide in the tribal sense or a masseuse. There's plenty reason to help someone to meditate successfully, so teamwork should definitely not be off the table here....
