    You could rule that it's the higher of the base wolf traits or the PC's own traits? That way, a wolf wouldn't be ridiculously OP but powerful characters won't be penalised for transforming.

    I might limit Abilities to the wolf's own default traits, because it's not like you can hotwire a car in wolf form. But I'd probably use the higher of the two Attributes....

  • I don't think you realise what being 'marginalised' is. It's not about hurt feelings. It's about power.

    See: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marginalization

    People who are marginalised are disenfranchised, disempowered and discriminated against. Pointing to a brief, reductive definition in a dictionary doesn't get across the full depth of the concept and the context in which it exists.

    That said, the term nuWW in itself is no more loaded than other options. In fact, it's possibly less loaded than ParaWolf. The latter always reminds me of 'paramilitary'.

  • The term 'nuWW' isn't 'marginalising' anyone. Even if you see it as an attack, that's not the same thing as 'marginalising'. You can be attacked even if you're not on the margins of society (see: Trump, Theresa May, just about any famous/high-profile person ever).

    No one is rounding V5 players up in camps or attacking them for trying to use the bathroom or denying them their civil liberties because of the term 'nuWW'.

    (Though, as I say this, I know a few people in Russia and Chechnya might be in actual trouble right now, but it's not because nuWW is an at-risk minority...

  • Frankly, I dislike the approach of all the alternatives you list for Vampire (though I liked some of their older work at the time), and much prefer Storypath and even nWoD. V5 felt like the worst of both worlds.

    I'd be happy with OPP handling the IP. They have a much deeper understanding of the lore and the community that loves it, and that's more important to me than perfect rules....

    My thoughts on this were a) it was done to increase the action/drama, and b) it's more akin to the Kuei-Jin origin....
