    replied to What are your character concepts?
    Considering An adaptation of Shadow Moon.
    Other concepts I am still working out: Magician (as in, doing card and coin Tricks on the street or stage plays) with Tuatha heritage (Havent decided on a parent yet), an MMA Fighter (Son of Zeus), a mob-employed bookmaker and fence (Daughter of Hermes) and a hobo who is the Child of the MonkeyKing.

    Garret Blyushtein
    Legend: Relentless. If Garret wants something, he is going to come for it, and nothing's gonna stop him.
    Life: Improvisational. Garret doesn't plan so much as act and react. He feels most at ease when he can just go with the flow, rather than follow a plan.
    Family: Eshmaki
    Hunger: Hoard
    Horror: Scaly fox made from Shadows
    Lair: Overstuffed Attic
    Lair Traits: Hoard, Fog, Maze, Murmurs, Cramped
    Atavisms: Death of Light, Illusion of Safety, Shadowed Soul, From the Shadows, Ravenous Maw
    Nightmares: Tabula Rasa, You Cannot Wake

  • Personally, I love the variety of banes, since it can tie in into the ghost's personality or backstory, and makes researching and investigating so much more worth it.
    I wouldn't mind "Universal" Banes to be a common thing, but would definitly stay away from making them apply always.

    But as always, if it works for your table, go for it.

  • Well, as long as you're in a City, both healing up and refueling Pyros are pretty easy - just find something electric (power outlet can be enough), and do the things you're not supposed to do, e.g. touch the wires, put a fork in it etc. As long as you don't just cause a short-out, you get an enduring source of Pyros.


    "Rebuke the Shroud" is something I want to call special attention to, because it basically means the Promethean becomes undying until his goal is fullfilled, even being topped out on Aggravated damage doesn't stop them - and it lasts a whole scene. Better...

    replied to What if? The Marvel Universe
    With the Geist preview out, I could see Ghost Rider kinda-somewhat as a Bound, though I still think he works better as a Beast, really.
    Anyone seeing a place for a Bound in the Marvel Universe?...

  • Adrasalieth I second Dataweaver: more important than the material is the thematic concept behind the lineage, and so there should be more focus on the Element/Humour behind it.
    The restrictions of the Sedna are interesting though. Would like to see that write up, but not nearly as much as your Alraune.
    Wood as an Element would work excellently, seeing how it is an element in the Chinese system. What Humour would the 'vegetable' Lineage have? Personally, it made me think of something like Aquatic, being stretched too thin, so that in Torment they become unable to act quickly, and tend...

  • I see; I misunderstood the problem. If you could give some more details regarding the "forced the hand of the supernatural powers that be" and where you felt you railroaded the chars, I'd appreciate it.
    In any case, sure, the storm threw things out of whack quite a bit - but the game can still recover, up to a certain degree. Most importantly, don't feel forced to drop the mundane for the supernatural (like, ever, the mix is usually more intriguing than either part for itself), and don't feel rushed. Take your time, as with all things.

    First of all, I would give a...

  • Aaaand I am out. I love what was done with the Archetypes. I see no appeal nor reason To this hack, to be honest, but you know your players, so you do you. If it works for your table, I wont be one to judge. Best of luck.

  • I second that. Wholeheartedly! So much in fact, that I think the Tone actively harms you, putting people off of helping you out, e.g. me.
    The Tone was enough to entirely put me off of this idea (which in and of itself is fine) because I constantly found myself saying "No it is not", "I disagree", "I could say the same about your approach", "that would make it bland and boring" and "That is what makes the setting so interesting!", Growing Increasingly frustrated with what seemed to me like you missed the point of the game.

  • Well, for the Wasteland, you could take a look at Beast's Lair Traits, take something from the Ordo's Coils, et Voila, you get something like Wastelands that can be called down on a whim for some Pyros, and have a much slower build-up. Or maybe the Promethean can spent one WP, take one point of aggravated damage and thus extend the creation/extension of a wasteland by one day. Or go really, really, really overboard and give them the ability to call down a Firestorm when inside a Wasteland.

    Re: Fire, just take your cue from the Fourth Coil of the Ascendant "Peace with the Flame"....

    One of your chambers' physical locations was somehow swallowed by the underworld.
    You have a chamber there now, which Grants you access to many a nifty thing. It has become a great base for your power. The Broods Makara especially Loves the Waters there and claims to have met 'the big brother'.
    However, soon you are under constant Assault of strange dead and even never living things for having broken some "Old Law".
    Worse, the Waters are changing your Aquatic sibling, Forcing a pseudo-merging into a Rampant Beast as his Personality wanes.

    Sooo... basically bless them with the luck of Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden? =p


    Need to second Second Chances here: Tips will be much more helpful if we know the splats involved. Most here assume it is werewolf, due to your example.
    The general idea stays the same, of course: give each splat Chances to play towards their strengths....

  • Now THAT is interesting... and should be quite the deterrent for a lot of Unchained to go down below.

    Seriously, we will need a Underworld supplement dealing with the effects it has on the other Splats....

  • I wonder what happens when a Promethean's Wasteland starts to take effect in the Underworld?
    Better yet, inciting a Firestorm is bound to very interesting effects, maybe even more so than usual. (In my mind, forces like The Principle and the Dark Mother, the G-M and the Underworld are the big league players that are opposed to each other to some degree. But I guess not everyone would agree.)

    Another thought: if the G-M stays away from the Underworld as much as possible as was stated earlier, don't you think there's bound to be a good reason for that? Imagine finding Castoffs...

  • Seconding Eternal Darkness in everything, but especially this: Don't fall for the Dragonball Z Escalation problem. Higher and higher stakes does not good tension make. Rather, personal involvment is what should drive them. A good antagonist is one that causes trouble, not one that goes "This isn't even my final form!"- the latter is fun once in a while, but grows boring fast. Occasionally turning your Beasts into fish out of their waters helps with building tension, too, and encourages teamwork.
    All your physical might is useless if you current goal is curing your normie-brother...

    Just to once again show how much damage even a Begotten fresh out of Character creation can cause:

    Rockie
    Family: Namtaru
    Hunger: Ruin
    Concept: Vandalizing Anarchistic Punk
    Lair Traits: Tornado, Unstable
    Atavisms: Storm-Lashed, Plague Bearer
    Nightmares: Your Rage Consumes You, Fear is Contagious
    Lesson: Society is just a flimsy cover - you are no better than your neolithic ancestors
    Life: Rebellious
    Legend: Vicious

    Rockie is a prick, and becoming a Begotten didn't make it any better. High on a power trip, disregarding...

    Storm-Lashed: Make bets against everyone that the beautiful weather will turn into a storm because "you can feel it in your knee".
    Never lose those bets.

    Also Storm-Lashed: Help someone gain a reputation of being unlucky - by having lightning strike twice (or maybe thrice). If they die, also strike their tombstone - preferably once a month.

    Becoming a Beast does not mean one loses their patriotitism.
    A Brood of foreign soldiers Starts a sort- of invasion when hard tolls are levied upon their country, sekeing to lay waste to the players' City due to its financial, military or economic importance in retribution. And feed their Hungers for Ruin and Punishment by doing so. Before they get to work, however, they make sure to fill up to the top, so they can absolutely Thresh the place.

    As they are aware how much damage even a single gorged Begotten can wreak, the Brood has to act, and fast. How will they find them,...
