    To maintain consistency with other Rank 5 Pangaeans, the Bane must utilize corpses of 555 burrowing animals - not 55. Aside from that, I love it!

  • There is a useful thread in another Forum that I seem to keep linking to:

  • The Begotten are uniquely positioned to face the worst the world has to offer. Their affinity with the Astral allows them to see mental scars of the local population. They are living monster detectors which, considering the lives of monsters, leads Beasts to face more horror and suffering. Seeking opportunities to feed and researching the local territory reveals even more problems that normal people face - poverty, corruption, crime, abuse, exploitation. What I'm getting at is that if you set your story in a bad enough place, PC's will encounter plot hooks on a daily basis. As a bonus, Beasts...

    "The Booth at the End" manages to scream Demon, despite of being about people talking in a diner.

    I assume it's the latter. There are many entities in CofD that are referred to as demons. Although we know little about Slaughterers, Leliel came up with a neat bit of homebrew:

  • Thank you, I feel both validated and embarassed. It's like that time when I summarised John Carpenter's "The Thing" to my younger cousin, and had to accompany him on his way home.

    The linked story has animated versions as well. I considered linking to them instead, but this version's narrator reads with gravitas that makes him sound like Matthew Dawkins. That basically settled it.

    I feel that Beasts wouldn't appreciate the Monomyth peanut butter in their Obcasus Rite chocolate. They're allergic. I already bent that rule by introducing Anathemas, so I'll leave the rest in a separate post for those readers who want it.

  • Are Geryo some sort of Human group? Otherwise, Iron Masters end up as the only Tribe without their prey represented.

    1. My intentions in making the Hunger a Virtue were the following: I wanted the influence of Mother to affect the Human to such an extent, that only spectacular acts of monstrousity allow them to regain full Willpower. This clearly differs from source material for the sake of making a darker spin on the subject. If you want to lean a bit closer to "Little Mermaid", then your approach is the way to go. Either that, or dropping the Hunger part entirely.

    2. I wanted the Beast to pay some sort of price, and disabling access to the Atavism felt like crippling the Horror too much....

    Monster's Favour (Intermediate)

    Dice Pool: Power + Empathy or Occult - 4
    Time Per Roll: Ten minutes.
    Duration: Until the Aspiration is fulfilled or either party is dead.
    Bonus: +2 to all rolls if the recipient is a Cult-member.
    Cost: None

    This ritual copies an Atavism possessed by a willing Beast onto a Mortal. The recipient gains access to the Normal Satiety Effect, assuming the donor's Lair rating where necessary. This gift is intended to help the Mortal with a specific Aspiration, that must be clearly stated out loud. Interestingly, if the petitioner...

    How about a rite that grafts one of the participant's Atavisms onto a Human subject? It would probably be limited to the Normal Effect and use the donor's Lair rating where necessary. Such powers as Needs Must, Mimir's Wisom, Cyclopean Strength and Alien Allure would be perfect fits. As a trade-off, the subject would carry a Condition, or be affected with an unstable Hunger.

    Your Ariel would get access to Enemy Within, but instead of needing true love's kiss, she'd go slightly... off.

    An average book from a Hedge library

    I've randomly found something I liked. It's a Harry Potter story generated by an AI, after analysing the structure of original books.

    Watch it. My words won't do it justice.

    Empty Nest (Advanced)

    Dice Pool: Finesse + Medicine or Occult - 6
    Time Per Roll: One hour
    Duration: Permanent
    Bonus: +2 to all rolls if biological relatives of the Beast are participating
    Cost: 1 point of Aggravated Damage

    This rite expands the ability of Beasts to create Horrorspawn, enabling what's normally the domain of Dark Mother herself. It allows a Begotten to give birth to an actual new Horror that might even one day manifest as a Beast.

    The ritual must be synchronised with the birth of the Horrorspawn, that must be present...

  • The re-writes certainly did that, but I can only speculate what the intent behind it was.

  • While others already explained what caused the majority of the outrage, there is a secondary reason that made some people disappointed with the Corebook. The game advertises itself as letting you play a legendary monster, but in practice the monster is an external entity that latches itself onto you. If you starve yourself, it can roam the Dream and act independently of you. If you overfeed it, it can fall asleep and leave you mostly human. For many this brought a sense of separation between the character and the Horror and those readers felt like it wasn't what they were promised.

  • Since it's tangent to the discussion, we have a great post on these Forums with homebrew examples of the Unfleshed. It might possibly help you get over whatever reservations you have.

    Here's the Link.
