    replied to Rules for Wan Xian
    Hsien aren't Changelings (Dream-creatures who exist between this world and the world of dreams). They're spirits/gods who were banished from heaven and are reborn inside of humans. They're changelings (little c) in that they're supernatural beings who are born and grow up as normal humans and then discover their supernatural origin later on. Life cycle-wise, Hsien are similar to Changelings (in that both are generally normal humans who discover their supernatural ancestry and abilities while young), but they're not Changelings, and they don't deal with the Dreaming or Glamour at all....

    replied to Real Life History controversies
    I took some Renaissance classes when I was an undergrad and you're basically right, that's exactly what I remember being taught so I don't know that it's all that controversial.

    When the Western Roman Empire fell, learning and knowledge in western Europe generally collapsed (compared to the earlier Roman-era). Meanwhile the Eastern Roman Empire basically kept right on trucking and Eastern Europe never really had a "dark age" in quite the same way that Western Europe did. A lot of the documents from Greek/Roman authors and such could still be found in the Eastern Roman Empire/Byzantium...

    replied to Staying Safe from the Virus
    I'm currently working at a gas station while I finish up my Masters degree. We've been deemed "essential personnel" so they're not shutting us down. We had 2 people quit so I've been working mad overtime (did 63 hours last week and I'm looking at 70 this week), which is a huge pain in the butt. Fortunately my college shut down and it'll be awhile before they can get these classes set up to take them online. Plus really, I can't complain too much since at least I've still got a job. A ton of people I know in the service industry have had their hours slashed to nothing (5 or less) or were...

    replied to Humanity in Antediluvians
    I think it really depends on your take on the Antediluvians. If they're the Blood Gods of yore who will rise up, devour their progeny and rule over the world then they probably would not have Humanity or at least not very high Humanity....

    So his superpower is that he doesn't first have to reach into his pocket and pull out a smart phone before he can start shitposting on the internet?...

  • Yeah, I like DSotBH, but it definitely isn't a core component of VtM the way the Dreaming is for Changeling or how the Umbra is for Werewolf or even Mage. BSotBH is really, really niche.

  • I've allowed players to do that with level one Vissicitude and Protean in the past. One blood point to create tiny little hooks or suckers on their hands that let them cling to walls for a scene as well as reducing the difficulty on climb checks by 1.

    replied to The D&D thread
    Might also be worth considering that the original Baldur's Gate only went up to level 8-9, Baldur's Gate 2 raised the cap to 18-19, and then Throne of Bhaal raised it to 40. My personal off-hand guess is that they are planning to eventually release a sequel or major DLC that will continue the story and are leaving room to allow the character to continue and grow like with the original Baldur's Gate, rather than the idea that they are planning to have the entire story wrapped up told within a single game....

    I hate that I have half a roll of toilet paper left in the house and there isn't a single store within 20 miles that still has toilet paper for sale.

    replied to What kind of DM/ST/SG you are?
    Kind of a mix of Warlock and Wizard I guess. I mainly aim for a good, memorable storyline with lots of world building and tend to build the story heavily around player backstory hooks....

    Sanders also has the perennial problem that the people he polls well with (especially young people and hispanics) don't show up at the polls in numbers that reflect that support to vote for him. So a lot of his support is just ephemeral. We saw pretty much the same thing play out back in 2016 only this time he was trounced much worse....

    replied to Mortal Martial Artists
    In Second Edition Martial Artists and Martial Art schools played a really big role in my games due to the way that Awakened Mortal Martial Artists were sort of a head above normal mortal warriors. My players tended to spend a lot of time figuring out ways to get their mortal followers trained (either as Martial Artists, Sorcerers or Thaumatuges), coming up with martial art styles and Charms for them and whatnot.

    I've noticed in Third Edition, without the mechanical distinction, my players don't really care all that much and will o just have their mortal followers default to generic...

    replied to Should Kuei-Jin be in V5?
    Isn't that what happened? "Here are some creatures that are similar to Cainites but they have various unique differences so they're not the same, and here are some basic systems and suggestions for approximating them using the existing VtM rules." And then we got rules for them in full later?...

  • It's possible. Kitsune only exist in Asia, Camazotz and Nuwisha were only in the Americas and the Ajaba are only in Africa (I forget if they're their own breed now or not) so it seems possible the Apis and Grondir were mainly located in Europe.

    Asia did have a War of Shame but it was explicitly different from the War of Rage and the different breeds got back together afterwards. Meanwhile there was never a War of Rage in Africa or the Americas. But at the same time, i's not like the different species got along and everyone was all Kumbaya or anything (look what happened to the Aj...
