    replied to How are you liking Wr20?
    Not really. As I recall, Ends of Empire ends with the group being crowned (masked?) the new Deathlords and the ones to shepherd the remaining Wraiths through the 6GM. So there was plenty of indication that some form of Dark Kingdom of Iron would exist. In addition there was even a thriving fan community for a while that wrote supplements for a post 6GM world. They focused on now isolated Necropoli weathering the aftereffects of the Maelstrom. Adding to that the (once canon) Orpheus storyline and every possibility between its barren Underworld and the one we see in Wr20 and you have a lot...

    Some definitely. The aforementioned Xoca is a good example. My only issue is if that becomes the dominant attitude of the Traditions....

  • I usually come up with history and motivation before going to stats, but I can understand the need to think of the numbers first.

    My advice? NPCs are made interesting by their weaknesses as well as their strengths. This guy is made to have numerical advantage in just about everything, but it means he isn't really distinct. It's easier to look for motivations and backstory when you have questions like 'why did he spend so much time working with cars? Why did he skip out on exercise?'

    It is possible to make the Traditions extremists in the sense of willing to take extreme actions to bring about the ideals of the Traditions (paradigmatic freedom, free will, harmony, etc), but it would still be a bad move. Individual Traditionalists like Xoca make sense, as do Cabals of them, but the Traditions are supposed to work on multiple levels. Influencing the collective unconscious, verbal battles in academic publishing, racing for the resources of other worlds, running soup kitchens to affect people on a personal level, these are all valid moves in the Ascension War.

    replied to Question about Passions (Wr20)
    I don't think this is ever actually answered, though I'd have to dig through my books to know for sure. I do think it is important to set the rules aside for a moment and look at what is narratively happening, though. Often that can give important insight into what should happen.

    In your example you include two very important elements. The first is that while the Passion Find Love can have a distinct end point, it doesn't have to. It doesn't specify romantic love, or love from a single person. It doesn't specify if love is the true goal or if the Wraith is longing to stop feeling...
