  • It does, and how you like your integrity comes down to the preferences of one troupe to the next.

    I personally like the death spiral of integrity in my games because of a few reasons:
    - I am sometimes pretty generous with Experiences and beats.
    - My games are long but often don't last a very very long time. Meaning I've yet to see anyone actually reach the int 0 (I've seen Cover 0 I have but that's totally different).
    - I'm also pretty forgiving on when to roll for breaking points.
    - And lastly, the easy slip in integrity is a big background part in almost...

  • Ahh! Now I really can't wait till my copy comes in!!



    I suppose I'll have to wait for my copy to come in for a real answer but is this section detailing an option for writing a group of npcs to have the same turn order of a single npc? If so, that would make the, usually laborious, task of having a large amount of NPC's in an action scene a lot easier to handle. (I and players get bored if I'm rolling 5 npcs in between a player. and for good reason)

    If this is true, I will likely def use it....

  • This (speaking on your last chapter read) is something that I always strive for but am usually not satisfied with my attempts. Show-not-telling as far as violence goes.

    One of the things that I do focus on in my games is portraying action scenes rather than fight scenes for basically anything that would require initiative rolls. I treat them more how a movie or a show would treat scenes when the tempo of the music swells to erratic levels. This I'm proud of. What I struggle with, I think, is portraying each turn as more narrativly important than "doing this much damage in this...

    This is the part that I find really interesting too. It brings to mind how you can portray all sorts of NPCs not just in Hunter. What about a Mysterium Mage? The first time the players meet one, you could portray him/her in this manner, that is absolutely fascinated and very excited but also very aware of the weirdness of the fascination, that could make the characters really 'get' the npc and where their actions and emotions come from. idk, I like that.


    On a second note: I theroughly approve of this post and hope that with this and Ekorren 's thread "Let's Read"...

  • I know this isn't highlighted so you're not looking for an answer, but I so badly want to answer/clarify the nature of ephemera in regards to specifically angels because it was very confusing to me for a very long time and I don't think it's ever explicitly said so I was very happy when I figured it out (prolly also asked the forums/DaveB at the time).

    I won't say anything unless you want me to....

  • My Vote is For Demon:The Descent as your next read through for a few reasons:
    1. It is by far my favorite book (love the splats, love the theses, love the antagonists, love the ST potential) and so would LOVE to see your thoughts as you read it.
    2. You seem to be intrigued by The God-Machine. The Demon book might give you more to be intrigued about along those lines.
    3. Other than humans, Demon seems to be the most companion to the Core 2nd edition book. I'm not fully certain but both seemed to be written with the other in mind.

    As for other considerations for...

  • That's fair. It's really just a tool to use or not. Like, for the most part I create most of the setting and mysteries and surprises. Then I color my setting with inspiration from the created aspirations of the characters as well as the types of characters they created. So in that way they helped in the creation of the world they know very little about.
