    replied to Vampires and Space Travel
    One thing to note however, consensus isn't responsible for Everything even in a straight mage game. Mage has a concept called "earthly foundations", things that are inherent to reality even when consensus isn't messing with your Magick. Things like gravity, mass, etc. are inherent parts of reality that don't change unless someone using magic messes them up and if the magic is removed they return to that state.

    Another thing to note is the fact everything in WOD is purposely written from an unreliable narrator, so even then books in mage that explicitely state consensus does/does...

    Huh, This makes a kind of sense and ties with the noddist lore that vampire disciplines came from the teaching of angel/demons(which would actually make Diamonion rather unremarkable rather than spooky and mysterious infernalism).

    I was playing with the idea earlier of re-writing the "unkown" branch of the baali faction as a sort of vampiric "Police-Force" for the camarilla in a playthrough. Their disciplines fit just fine in an interrogation/judgement role, it'd fit as to why nergal and moloch are understandably pissed at them for abandoning the infernal all together,...

  • Eh, Those weren't assertions so much as possible examples.

    My point was just to point out it's possible to make ante's good mastermind villains for games rather than a strict rail-roaded experience. I just think it fits the lore for it to be possible for PC's to "Beat" them on the small scale, but only delay them on the big scale....

  • Personally I prefer the 2nd edition take. Level 10 disciplines are Just that, another discipline power. It also fits the jyhad diary's assertion that the ante's are just inflating the rumors of how powerful they are.

    Granted, the Antedeluvians Should be powerful. They should be intimidating. What they don't need to necessarily be are invincible, they can't be constantly active in the fore-front, and they can't take precedence away from the PCs. All of this unfortunately stops game-play dead in my experience. Lots of rpg circles used to derogatorily call Vampire: the Masquerade "NPC...

    replied to Kuei-jin: How to Fix?
    Why not make wan-kuei the Buddhist/Shinto/Hindu equivalent to vampires? That way it's not racially or geographically locked, while still believably centralized in asian countries(where said worship is the most prominent) and doesn't carry the same "Mysterious Orientalism" that do a dis-service to asian culture.

    The naming of certain things could also be tweaked. Granted, "white tiger corpse technique" is Actually how some native Chinese or Japanese authors write, but they do so because those words have better rhyme-schemes or alliteration in their native language...

    replied to Lvl 1 spheres effects ideas
    Let's not forget about Correspondence 1. It essentially gives you 360 degree vision, an awareness of location/distance of any sensed target with other powers, And a perfect sense of location, direction and balance.

    A person with correspondance 1 would have near-perfect aim, they'd be able to know exactly how far away a target is and what position they need to be in to hit it. Normal soldiers and archers have to train for years to get that same sense of distance.

    Another thing, by combining correspondence 1 with time 1 you can essentially allow a person can do something...

  • Some of the wraith problems could be solved by either starting them off as or having them build up to being Risen.

    Wraiths, mummies and Wan Kuei can all travel to the shadowlands rather frequently as well.

    Vampires end up being a bit left out un-brewed, but I have setting change I add to all my games. I make the Giovani part of the sabat and give them close ties with a working relationship to the lambrosa, my In-Universe reason being the lasombra are what facilitated the Giovani conquest of the Cappadocians. Both the clans would have built up a connection during the height...

    Inter-Supernatural interactions

    Leaving aside the issues, KOTE and Mummy are really interesting offshoots of VTM.

    They Technically exist in the same universe and offer other perspectives than the masquerade's abrahamic-centric viewpoint of the world. They have distinct culture and magic that make Asia/Africa something other than "Vampires, but with wrong beliefs"(*cough* laibon *Cough*). They seem like, if handled better, they could be great editions to the setting.

    I say they could work if they, with vampires, were left to represent the different belief systems of the continent they originated(with...
