  • Well first, I think you should go back and read that page again, because its conclusions were more nuanced than "the character should have killed the Nazis when she had the chance".

    It's a character devoted less to killing people - the only explicit reference to the character doing so is in the very last sentence under Equipment ("tiny pistol (just good enough for putting a hole in a hatemonger's head)") - and more with killing IDEAS. That the freedom to learn is important, but that some ideas are toxic and harmful and need to be fought when they are used to peddle...

    The task may be made easier if we go with the option Heavy Arms suggested about using Time to look backwards to when the books were undamaged, and then Matter to repair them. I don't think you'd need as many Spheres as he suggested, though, just Time 2 + Matter 3 should be fine. I also don't think you really need to break the two functions into separate Effects, if you don't want to. One Effect can just look backwards in time and then force the books to conform to the states they were in before.

    This method also sidesteps the need to reverse the flow of time, which as baakyocalder...

    replied to Who holds a domain?
    Indeed, it's entirely possible that a Prince may assign a vampire a particular Domain, simply to make sure someone controls it. Depending on what the Domain is, it might be more trouble than it's worth to the vampire assigned to it, but it would be more trouble for the city (or the Prince) for it to lie fallow. So the vampire is stuck with it, obligated to make sure it continues to function correctly, and being responsible for any Masquerade violations or other problems that might arise there.

    Of course, if the Prince is really clever, they'll offer said Domain as reward for the vampire...

  • I question whether it would be necessary to put the dogs down. More likely, they would simply not be allowed to breed, and any internal weapons being removed. Perhaps specimens kept by individual Technocrats of sufficient standing, for personal reasons.

    Less extravagant modifications could still have uses. Dogs that sniff out illnesses or become alert when supernatural creatures are near. I'm picturing a Progenitor with a genetically modified and trained animal companion (read: Familiar), that is used for various rotes.

    It may seem redundant, when machine solutions could...

    replied to How do you use Acolytes?
    Remember that Acolytes are people who not only buy into the Paradigm of whatever faction they serve, they're also people who may have ambitions for something greater than merely being helpers. Unlike the common Sleeper - who doesn't even know vast mystical power is even on the table - Acolytes are to one degree or another aware that the Awakening is possible.

    Obviously, not every Acolyte might be informed that a person can just have an epiphany and start doing magick. Some groups or individuals keep that sort of thing close to their chest. But the Traditions are among the groups that...

    My original post included a paragraph explaining premise and what I like about them. But I'm just going to put out the list and links, and let you explore at your own pace.All of these are webcomics with long-term storylines, and all are continuously updating. (Though Lackadaisy goes a long time between pages. It's worth it, though). None of them are what you'd call "comic strip" style works, which is much different than what is...

    Dammit, I made a whole post recommending webcomics, but I either canceled the post by mistake or the forum ate it.

    I don't think I can help with recent print comics. I haven't been buying print comics for a couple years now. Probably my favorite from back when I could is probably Giant Days, which ended not too long ago (tragically, I missed out on it; although it was always difficult getting issues for it back when I did). It's a great comedy slice-of-life, that ventured into magical realism a bit.


    If web comics count, I can offer a bit more suggestions:
    • Devil's Candy: Shonen manga style comic about devils in a devil society, attending devil school. Kind of like Disgaea 3, except without
