  • Well we were sort of subscribing to the idea that the wyrm did go insane after it got trapped. Which I think is supported by many of the other senarios in the apocalypse book, after all they were all completely different takes on the universe in many ways. For example: the last battleground senario that we based ours of, the triatic wyrm can be interpreted to be the wyrm(or what's left of it) and malpheas itself being the prison that was built for it....

  • After "The Time of Judgement"

    Considering the fact that the books on the "end of the world" have already been printed and the world of darkness books mean to continue on regardless, I and some friends thought it'd be a little weird to go back to the "everything is going to end" theme. So we've been trying to think of a setting "after the end that didn't end", but keeping with the old themes. We'd like some thoughts.

    For a baseline, We wanted to go for "the big fight came and everyone lost", the good guys banding together with all their resources to take on the bad guys only...

    Thank you for the feedback. I'll try to throw in some acknowledgement of the spheres in player NPC interactions, though I think most old and powerful(non-hermetic) masters would consider it hogwash and only mention it for communications sake to their acolytes. I'll try to include mention effect of belief a bit more, keeping things vague until their teachers believe they can trust them with more knowledge. I haven't really had problems with players opinions, I guess they just take it as how I run the game. I'll ask them for more feedback on...

    If I were said master I'd just explain that obvious changes to reality are more drastic and therefore take more work. All vulgar magic is more difficult after all, regardless of if there are witnesses(The witness part can be hand-waved until they're adept enough to figure it out themselves). They really shouldn't perform magic in front of people either as that attracts attention from other supernaturals.

    It's still easier to cast with foci, though. So it's still important....

    Separating OOC and IC

    Anyone have any storyteller tricks for separating in character and out of character terms during play? There's so much overlap in the mage books tend to mix and confuse some things enough(like "How do you do That's" infamous sphere use based on paradigm system) that I often try to separate them myself.

    Example of things I like to do:

    1. Removing any mention of the spheres in game.

    In game all the characters think they work their own system of magic. This could reflect in crunch somewhat, as a techy might really completely on wonders for his magic,...

  • That depends on if you interpret it as a curse from gaia. In purely werewolf cosmology it's more likely, but still a valid question. In werewolf + mage cosmology things get "wyrd" fast....

  • Yeah, the only mages powerful enough to unknowingly change reality are mauraders and archmages. Reality is sorta predetermened by consensus and/or spirit's messing with something. So unless the mage actively tried to make the baby human it would most likely be kinfolk.

    Though story-wise it's an interesting concept....

  • I didn't mean said mage wouldn't come up with some priar reasoning(even if he was human, explaining sudden babies would be complicated relationship wise and paradox wise), just I don't think the metis(who grou society have likely tried many times over many generations to cure and failed) would believe said herbal potion would work, but would try it out to humor his girl. And a DNA test would prove the child was his(which may further complicate matters anyway with garou)



    Or be born a bygone rather than a werewolf. Or possibly be subject to paradox flaws as a living work...

  • A mage with life and spirit(both the most likely spheres for a verbena will have) probably can make metis fertile. Though based on how you interpret the metis infertility thing(if it's a curse from gaia, or a generic/spirit querk similar to inbreeding) it could still have dire, weird, or no consiquence.

    You could treat it as a normal permanent effect and give said metic a permanent paradox flaw, The magic could just fail and cause an automatic backlash, or it could work swimmingly with everyone happy(does pose the question of whether the child would be homid or metis though.)
