    "Cathedral of flesh" refers to the anime film, Akira.

    There was this What We Know thread: http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/m...-the-renegades...

    Man, this is how I feel about Vampire, too. Like, what do I actually do with this game?...

    I'm hoping there'll be a Scar reflecting memory removal and other varieties of genre standard amnesia. Half the fun of being Remade is trying to remember the last ten years and, well, being Jason Bourne

    I didn't write it, but I asked for it and Matthew Dawkins wrote it up. I personally don't like the Purified, and - surprise - thought there was unnecessary thematic overlap regarding their inclusion.

    As far as 'unintended consequences' go, that's why we created the Legio. I wanted to - surprise - expand the setting with sanity-shattering (not so much?) ghost-demons trapped in Twilight and composed of many shattered individuals, and the same writer nailed it when he described them as being more uncounted victims of the Rite. That may not soothe you since they're still Iremite in origin,...

    The core book literally says it can't. It states the Rite of Return was the single greatest spell ever performed. It wrote an empire out of history, reworked the fabric of the cosmos, and was preceded by the death of a god, all carried out by traitorous, otherworldly divine spirits, not 'just' arch-mages.

    Like, I'm sorry. I'm not trying to stamp out good ideas or attempts at expanding the setting - just the ones that directly contradict core material.

    The game has plenty of room for other cultures manipulating Sekhem (even though Dark Eras compares it to the equivalent...

    I think for about half these options you'll find an answer in utilizing Sadikh more. Then you literally just suggested [what might as well be] a Sin-eater.

    Beyond that? Yeah, I think an amkhat stitched together from human flesh would be pretty cool. It's similar to some other ideas I've used, but don't want to talk about at the moment because reasons...

    Anyone that wants non-Iremite mummies has to ask themselves, "Why?" initially. What is it you're even looking for and wanting?

    There's plenty of types of undead in the Chronicles of Darkness. Who's to say a bastardized attempt at the Rite doesn't produce Mekhet vampires, Osiran Prometheans, or Bound who are merged with cthonians rather than Geists? Or just a 'standard' zombie dressed up in tattered desert garb? Or one of the Immortals from that book? Or maybe they're mechanically simply just Shuankhsen, or narratively if your setting is particularly inhospitable.

    Well, shrunken heads would be a cool Uter relic, like braided onions or garlic

    I'm trying to think of something substantial to contribute to the thread but I just want to copy/paste what I posted in eight other threads about this topic since the game released half a decade ago, so I'll get back to ya'll

  • Sometimes I like to pretend it was "Mummy the Descent" since it's the foundation of their existence and major mechanic, but was changed because demons descend from Heaven and mummies are cursed, you know like Curse of the Mummy titles

  • What devs think that? Dave B said it but he was only a writer on just two of the books, IIRC, and he wasn't the one who wrote the core book's Affinities and Utterances

  • I like the Legio because, along with a couple other reasons, they portray the horrifying scale that the Rite of Return encompassed. This was also established with the Book of the Deceived, IIRC, where some passages could be read implying the Rite more or less totally fucked time.

    It's not just sacrificed Shuankhsen, betrayed Deceived, or chosen Arisen that were affected by the Rite, but the realm of ghosts, and who knows what else. Its unintended consequences were just as influential as its intended designs

    Congratulations.

    Whether they are involved or not in future releases how much of John and Holden's vision of the game will you be adhering to? The changes they discussed seemed to me, who was new to the game with third edition, exciting and quite necessary to the line in establishing a healthy future as well as fixing up previous editions' problems and opportunities

  • I like the Era's take on the Reborn but I also like the idea that they're allies to the Deathless. If Imhotep is Deathless then I think of the Reborn as Anck-sun-amun, from the Mummy movies...

  • Don't be modest


    It's an interesting Era, and spells out very clearly how much of the cosmology (between any splat, really) is about how each one perceives it. My favorite detailed bits were the description of Anpu, and how Arisen can enter the upper caverns of the blue book Underworld but not its lower domains because they see it as part of Neter-khetet...
