  • My take on it: there is a wide range of power levels for Fomori. Generic Fomori are "mooks" as you put it. But you can easily set up better power spreads (balanced by reasonable Taints) to make them credible threats.

    Per the book example (which I haven't read), they might have the dice rolls wrong. It happens sometimes. I don't know specifics but axes don't normally do Agg and so a "normal-ish" combat Fomori should be able to roll their full Stamina to soak it. For the Garou, if their in Crinos, they should be rolling the full 6 Stamina to soak Agg.

  • Agreeing with Cadmiumcadamium, that you can't just meld creatures together. Well, I suppose you can, but horrible damage is going to be done to each and they won't actually fuse together (as stated, that's what Elder levels are for).

    Fur should be perfectly within acceptable since hair apparently is, though I've never really agreed with that concept. And faux-chitin should be able to be crafted from bone material, though it will probably be a complicated process that is beyond the rank and file Tzimisce's ability to do (while keeping the subject alive)....

    Having run Ratkin in a DA:W game, I agree with most of the changes you propose.


    I actually don't see a problem with having any of the Freak Aspects available. Though they would be extremely rare. The Plague Lords being the most common among them. But you don't lose much from banning the Engineers and/or Twitchers outright.



    This I wouldn't change. I don't see a problem with having 99% of the Ratkin in the Chronicle belong to the same Plague. The Ratkin don't really swear loyalty to a Plague after all. For them it's more of a smaller scale Colony thing....

    Also, depending on edition there were other complications.

    Plus Drizzt.

    On topic though, crossovers are easier to maintain if the ST and players are willing to accept that their game's WOD is going to vary slightly from canon. A bit less hate (just a little) between the factions is usually enough to run an ongoing story. As written, the setting sort of allows it but long term games can be fairly difficult to continually rationalize. The Lhiannan idea above is only going to hold as motivation for a story (maybe 2)....

    Maybe. Though the effect doesn't seem to have much to do with the target. It's a 6th Rank Gift though, so I could see affording it a lot of leeway.

    In the end it'd be a ST decision, but I would lean heavily towards no....

    Okay. So some critiques on that system: That kind of cost means it can only be a Rank 5-6 Gift. Lower Rank Gifts just don't have that heavy of costs (generally speaking). And the system then seems not to keep up with the proposed (to me) Rank of the Gift.

    Maybe something like: Lower the Gauntlet for each Gnosis spent. If the Gauntlet reaches 0, tear an actual hole through that anyone can pass through. The Gauntlet will reassert itself at 1 point per day. And if you spend Gnosis in excess of reaching zero, that extends the time frame of the tear by 12 hours (or a day) per. Rank 6 for...

    Yea, for me this will really depend on the system involved. Just stating Spheres/effect doesn't really explain the power as a Gift.

    Also, if you plan on getting the Gift via Firebringer, this doesn't actually sound like it will work. For Firebringer to work, the power as to actually be used on the Garou in question. But you can still invent this Gift either way.

    So what does it do exactly? Does it lower the Gauntlet? Does it punch a hole in it? How long does it last? A Scene? Permanent?
    (again, for me) Answering those will make it easier to judge a Rank level for...

    Edit: just checked back, and that second picture link won't work now. I will try to remember to fix that tomorrow (done now I think)....

  • I actually agree with this entirely.

    And who knows, the Perfect Metis prophecy could entirely being this infinitesimally small chance occurrence happening. That's kind of how things go anyways.
    Outside of that explanation though, if I were to do a random fertile Metis storyline, I think it would have to be outside of a modern times game. The event has so much spiritual baggage that comes with it, I couldn't see doing a random false birth random event so close to the Apocalypse and giving it no greater meaning. That just seems like bad storytelling within the setting as writ...

  • Eh. I think you could drop any individual Tribe and it wouldn't effect the overall Setting all that much. That being said, I see your point.

    They were just about the smallest Tribe anyway (tied with the Talons). And once the Hengeyokai book came out, it was evident that the Stargazers should always have been part of that quasi-Setting. Around the end of Revised the decision was finally made to move them over there but it didn't really matter much since, being as small as they were, they usually didn't have a terribly big impact on games already....
