  • The book actually has more pieces than just that - even small parts that are not Nephandus specific, like some of the familiars, or some of the godheads and demons in it.
    The weapons in question though are essentially a small list of over-the-top magically-pimped melee things that are...well, they are labeled 'malign Weapons' and they are really really nasty. Buster Sword is probably the right direction, but I'm more thinking of the Dragon Slayer from Berserk. For example, the "Titanic Sword", diff 5, str+8 lethal damage.
    They are all examples of the "Malign Cutlery"...

  • See http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/m...54#post1346954

    Book Of The Fallen is quite more heavy in material than Path of Screams, because it discusses a lot of actual type of RL abuse and violence all over the world - including our western society.

  • Eeeh.
    This opens up another whole can of worms, because technically a shimpanzee...isn't really stronger. What a Shimpanzee *does* have is a whole different *arrangement* of their musculature, which makes it much more efficient than a human's for some tasks - and way less efficient for other tasks.

    A shimpanzee can rip your face off, because their entire musculature is optimized for their back and arms, allowing them to apply much more force there, easily pull themselves up with one arm, swing on trees - but ask a shimpanzee to carry the same weight as a human while standing...

  • I always presumed that the lifting in the Feats Of Strength category means what your character can always plainly lift in whole, without any problems, and potentially carry for at least a short while - no competitive few-seconds-lifts. In which case the 100lbs for Strength 2 aren't bad, really.
    Remember that you can always lift more! It takes a Willpower roll diff 9, but each success will move you one point up in the chart. I presume that this at least means carrying around stuff will have a considerably shorter limit....

    replied to [V20] Background limits
    I feel like Resources should at least be a background that goes higher.

    In the M20 corebook, Resources greater than 5 are explained - there, they are limited to the Syndicate, but in Vampire I can totally see resources like that applying to elders that have pulled on the threads of the modern economy since old times.

    Lemme quote the Resources from M20:...

    replied to Thoughts about Mage 5th
    Amusing fact - Dante was 27 in the Horizon book. The narrative dispatch was from 1996 at the time.
    (Page 9 in Horizon - The Stronghold Of Hope, for reference)

    Dante is 50 years old now Time flies....

    KingJohn : If the intent is to use that Umbral abduction offensively against the Vampire, here is food for thought in that regard:
    You don't need to have the Vamp and the Spirit duke it out, because there are two things that make the Umbral landscape hell for most vamps:

    1) Most vamps can't cross into/from the Umbra. A specific Necromancy path can allow sidesteppings into the Underworld as an exception, and Auspex 5 allows classic Astral Travel where the body remains in the real world - connected by the silver cord as usual of course.
    2) There is no Blood in the Umbra....

  • In the end, it doesn't even matter if Exalted and WoD are connected in any way, really.

    I think it's safe to say that most WoD players don't even 'know* there *is* (was) a connection - or haven't even tried Exalted before. None of those I know in RL actually have, and they just know Exalted as 'that anime game'. Yeah, first impressions, yadda yadda.

    Even if you are the rare bird that happens to a) Know about it, *and* b) Happen to know Exalted and c) Happen to know the history of Exalted.....well...well, oWoD already struggles to keep full-coverage crossovers between...
