  • Let's Brainstorm: Cooking a Chronicle w/ xiongrey

    Sorry for the cheesy title ^.^;

    So i'm creating a chronicle for my fiancé, My brother, and his wife. None of them frequent these forums and are not likely to so I feel pretty safe posting this.

    I'm brainstorming some ideas for the Chronicle and I feel like it would benefit from other people piping in ideas if they so chose so I'm posting on the forums. If no one posts, that is ok, I will continue to brainstorm this until it's all hammered out.

    So what is the game about?:
    In very Broad strokes, It's an overarching story that starts with innocents...

  • Hmm, I really do like that this way would allow them (the players) to really get a slow feel for how the different facets of playing an Uratha works.

    What I was starting to form in my mind was that one Pack kind of adopts the 3 pups at the end of Story 2. Then there's a slight time gap between Stories 2 and 3 where the characters are taught the very basics but they aren't full members of the pack nor have they signed anything with that totem but now they do have connections to members of their respective Tribes. Then the 3rd Story occurs which is some sort of threat that the Main...

  • It's not going to be Crossover by the time it's done. The idea behind it is that they'll go through two full stories where I watch them and their actions and how they like to play their characters and I morph the basic setting of the second story to fit that gameline. If I do it right, the players will never know that I thought of anything else other than the gameline that I chose. As for changeling, 2nd Ed will def be out by the time it comes to the second story. I've got at least 6+ months before even the first story would start....

  • Thank you everyone, this is helpful ^.^.
    nofather , Thanks for the heads up on the Anthology I'll have to take that off the shelf and read it alongside my reread of Harry Potter ^.^. Which stories would you suggest I read for that purpose?

    So I think I should state what I'm wanting to use this knowledge for. I'll be starting a chronicle for my Fiancé, my brother, and his wife in about 6+ Months. Well the plan is to start w/ an entire Innocents story to get the characters used to each other bond-wise and to introduce the stranger things of the world. It will be a full story....

  • Hmm, I'm liking this idea that a nearby pack may adopt the PCs into their own pack long enough to "rear" them as it were, before forcing them out to make their own Pack (but with the knowledge they've given them). Kind-of like a tough love parent Pack. Introducing them to the channels of the Tribes and their Patron Spirit and tips and tricks to survive....

    started a topic Pack Dynamics: Tribe Combinations

    Pack Dynamics: Tribe Combinations

    So to preface this: I've not yet fully read through W:F (2nd Ed.). But I'm looking for answers from people that have played and ran W:tF games.

    I want to know how the tribes interact with a Pack.
    1. Are packs typically comprised of more than 2 or 3 in separate Tribes?
    2. When an Uratha goes through the First Change, how do they find the Tribes and join?

  • Quick question on this passage from the Dev Blog today:
    1. It sounds like Charlotte Wake became a changeling without ever entering Arcadia proper. Can humans become Lost after a durance in the Hedge?
    2. Is the Dusk Witch a True Fae Title, a Goblin, or a Changeling? (The implications for each answer is interesting based on the answer to Q1. If it's a Title than are some Titles allowed at some Markets? If it's a Goblin than can Goblins enact the same kind of change on a Changeling as the Others do? And if it's a Changeling, what does Lost society say about Changeling Keepers?)
    The other possibility...

  • So True Fae have a Name at their core and up to five Titles. Each Title can Manefest X times/ways.

    What if it's deeper than that? What if a True True Fe consists of up to five names, each with up to five titles, with up to x manifestations.

    But actually, it gets further, The Wyrd several True Fae Manifestations, each with up to five names, with up to five titles, with up to x manifestations.

    This is just theory crafting here but what if the Wyrd, who is in essence twisting pacts and pledges that intersect like threads and entwine like a spiderweb or a...

    Writing mine before I read the above examples so that it's fresh in my memory. (some of these are as a player and some as the ST)

    D:tD:
    • That moment when a player's amorphous black goo demon w/ a hobo Cover (The Good Doctor) is so desperate to get a better cover w/ a better quality of life to better provide for it's Daughter that the character stalks, frightens, and threatens a wealthy business person into signing over her soul. Then coming to pick up the debt the next day, accidentally suffocating one of the cops parked outside the APT complex (it's amorphous liquid-ish goo) and

  • I wouldn't say happy so much as pacified. It's not as bad as I feared (like 1st ed with more steps), but it's not as great as David's version was. It still feels like a step back but to so far as going back to 1st Ed. So i'm, Pacified.

    Like, at least they're thematic only so any explanation for a Seeming being what it is is valid. Still, I personally loved and fell in love with David's version where you litterrally ahd to mark your soul to escape creating a Seeming on your Mein. It was visceral almost and deeply personal and the mechanics really backed that up. Seemings meant a huge...

  • It seems mostly now that there isn't any one way that for sure creates a Seeming. Anything really can make a Seeming. Seemings are now more just loose classifications or fae stereotypes/roles that a changeling considers themselves or is considered whether from how they escaped, what role their Keeper forced them into, or how they cope on the outside (among likely others). It's now a little more broad rather than Matter of fact.

    I have some questions to the implications of this. Seemings (possibly used to) have mechanical effects on the character like additions to the Mein and Benefits/Curses...

  • I'm still a little unsure I understand the new Seemings.

    If I'm understanding correctly, David's Seemings were basically how you forged your Wyrd or what's left of your soul to escape Arcadia. It was litterral and Branding almost. In a way it was like making a pact with an "effort" on the escape. I liked this, True Fae didn't make a seeming or assign a Seeming anymore, the Seeming was how the Changeling escaped (and how it now marks the changeling). With David's approach, I could see changelings with the same Seeming as maybe a little more connected as they all branded...

  • Query: Difference between V:tR and V:tM - A Player's Perspective

    Ok, so I have a few prefaces to my question.

    First is that I couldn't find a topic already on this, the closest being this thread which was more about CofD vs WoD in general and focused on mechanics and setting. My question's a little different so I apologize if this topic has already been brought up.

    Second, I am posting this in the V:tR area rather than the V:tM area because I figured there is a higher chance of players having played both lines and players who prefer V:tR (and WofD in general) as I do.

    Third is the backstory to why I ask:
