    replied to Contagion Chronicle book
    Eh, if it goes against the supportive infrastructure, it could make regaining any kind of Supernatural Fuel harder, which would already limit mages somewhat, or make access to supernatural abilities harder (mechanically via higher costs, weaker effects, penalties etc. etc.).
    I would be more interested in it causing something like a power incontinence though, especially something along the lines of using supernatural powers a lot increases the risk of them going wonky. Would limit the more powerful members more strongly: a guy with a gun accidently pulling the trigger can do some damage,...

    replied to Innocents 2e is on its way!
    Aw yiss. Never player Innocents, but enjoyed reading it a lot. Nothing is scarier than a little girl in a horror movie.

    Also seconding the idea for monster kids. Give me Claudia and Eli! A story with Mike, Dustin and Lucas, the little Beast Richard from the Conquering Heroes prologue, Teenage Werewolves, Davina and Monique like witches...
    I can totally dig this =D

  • Forum-based PbP for Beast, Vampire and Mage - Players wanted!

    Hello everyone!
    I would like to advertise a online PbP Forum-based Chronicle a bit, in the hopes some of you are looking to play just that kind of game.
    Might I introduce Cedar City, a place where the Supernatural communities need to work closely together after a catastrophic cataclysm caused by the Wise, which blasted away their leadership - and uncovered the Splats' existences to each other.
    The Beast's find themselves faced with an unknown Apex and a Maze of mirroring, distorting glass all throughout the Hive. The Pentacle tries to get the shards back together and rebuild....

  • If you are interested in a Forum-based game with different venues (So far, Vampire and Mage, but once Changeling is out, that will come in, too) and are fine with the benefits and drawbacks of that format, you might want to check out Cedar City.

    Mark 5 recharged his Pyros before they left - he would need to be in top form, after all.

    When they arrived, he waited for Scout to repeat the plan, then nodded towards Solomon. He didn't know this Pilgrim, but Scout was smart - way smarter than the Tammuz. If he said this was a good...

    started a topic "We're now a Brood!"

    "We're now a Brood!"

    So, having just experienced a situation where I realized I didn't really know how to fluff creating a Brood, (luckily I still have a bit time for that) so I wanted to turn to my trusty fellow forum goers a few questions:

    How did your Broods come about?
    Did you play the creation out IC, or was it more of an OOC decision? How many of you started play without a Brood, creating one during the game?
    Did you connect your hearts? If so, why? If not, why not?

    This is mostly meant as a place to simply share Brood related experiences, to take a look at how other people...

    willywonka this, especially the cult and pillar stuff.
    Cleverest of Things That sounds kind of cool, actually. I'd like something similar in approach in this Mummy, too!

  • Hm. Dunno, Conditions should be more of a phase and less of a characterization that informs the character's central point of view imo.
    I also do not want to see the Recovery for a drop in max synergy go, to be honest, since it was a wonderful intersection of mechanic and narrative and part of what made the Sin-Eaters unique. And that mechanic does not work well with a Middle-centered, Harmony-inspired Synergy, because that would actively encourage suicide for the sake of losing those extreme ends.
    Taking a page from Beast, which is kind-of but not really the opposite of Harmony, in...

  • I for one I wouldn't like that at all. Geist was refreshing for being different, for the lack of Angst, and while I do not mind some downsides to Sin-Eater existence (or maybe a stronger outline of those few that were kind of present in 1ed but basically non-existent and without impact in comparison to the alternative, like never being alone and having a foreign presence in your mind and soul vs. being dead), I am do not want them to be increased similarity to Wraiths.

    Not that I do not like Wraith, but I think one of the things that make 2ed interesting and in many ways an improvements...

    replied to Abandoned game is abandoned.
    4 Missing Arcana would make the game "Mastigos: the Whatever", not Mage. I think you are exagerating here, because if this were the case, you simply wouldn't be able to play the game. This is untrue, as I know many people who play or played the game, and in a variety of themes even.

    I do not think you need a "The Prey" book to play (albeit I'd dig that). What I'd personally like is a "The Hunt" book, dealing not only with the targets of the prey, but the hunt in and of itself in more depth.
    But then, that is just me....

    Cinder nice! Haven't thought about the Dark Tower. Hm.

    replied to Abandoned game is abandoned.
    I specifically stated that I do not consider you to be whining, but that this reminds me of whining. I do not blame people for things that I understand, unless I am very sure that is what they meant me to understand.

    Mummy does not even have a Core yet. So playing 2ed is rather hard, what with having to converse the given old material to 2ed from scratch, whereas a makeshift workaround with the given 2ed Core and old material is a lot easier. See the disparity there?

    People love setting information, because it helps them come up with their own stuff - ChroD has traditionally...

  • Wingardium LeviosAH, Cuiva nwalca Carnirassë!, Fuego, Fthagn - magic words usage

    So, this is probably completely unneeded, but since it came up in one of my games by accident and helped me flesh out my char. Now, I have actually made a short list with Cthuvian/R'lyehian phrases for certain spells (and all my rotes). I think, consistency like that adds something to the character/experience, and having rooted this in a language that just sounds/looks fantastic makes things even more fun.

    What phrases and magical formulae do you use when you do not resort to High Speech, or how do you fluff the sound of High Speech?
    Do you even act out the speaking of spells...

    replied to Abandoned game is abandoned.
    I am sorry for quoting you, but I think this exemplifies best what I want to talk about.

    Something not being your cup of tea does not make it bad. It just means it is not working for your table. Other lines are not necessarily being favoured just because your favourite doesn't get as much new stuff right now. There may still come a time where your gameline gets more stuff than the others in a certain timeframe, after all, things are being rebooted into 2ed right now. Things like that have happened, and will likely happen again.
    You are not the only table, and sometimes,...

    replied to You as a Werewolf?
    Upon reading more, I thought adding my chosen Blood and Bone would be a good addition.
    I believe I would have either Soldier or Destroyer for Blood, and either Hedonist or Gurur for Bone.
    Going by my gut instinctis, it would be Destroyer and Guru.
    So a Destroyer/Guru Bone Shadow Elodoth. Sounds nice enough.


    Btw: cannot wait for the You as a Mage thread.
    Especially the Archmage part O__O

    And now that I know you do Martial Arts, you are even more likeable to me, Arcanist =D
    Many people don't know about the... less likeable aspects of Bruce Lee. In the end, he was human, he did good things (spreading Chinese Martial Arts to the Western World) and bad things (often arrogant, basically betrayed ancient tradition for his own gain etc.). I ain't denying his fame, but don't overgloryfy what was a remarkable, but not flawless human being. (Also kinda sick of people over-estimating his ability. Bruce was amazing, but not unbeatable.)
    I like to think of Jeet Kune Do as something...

  • I didn't get to try it, yet, but I am quite fond of this writeup nonetheless. More monstrousness, more focus on what being a monster entails.


    To make Vampires more heroic is less simply a matter of motivation and actions, in my opinion. Keep the monstrosity in, though, to add drama, tragedy, and give an additional layer to the characters.
    You will, invariably, end up with some sort of Anti-Hero, of course. Less hacks, more plothooks:

    The 'Friendly Neighbourhood Vampires' try to atone for the lives they've taken by patroling the area and stopping any crime...

  • Well, that giant thing _could_ be Will's Horror, if you wanted to see it that way =)
    Otherwise, I don't think there is anything quite like it in the Flesh world, but you could see the Upside-Down as the Shadow rather easily, making the big thing (somethingsomethinghydra) a high-ranking spirit, I suppose. Maybe Will is in the process of being Claimed?

    replied to What if? The Marvel Universe
    Some more suggestions.

    Red Skull would be a Deviant, or an evil Changeling, I think.
    General Ross is a Hero, obsessed with The Hulk. At least, if you do not consider the Red Hulk Version, and make Hulk a Beast. Otherwise, he is a hyper-focused Hunter.
    Doctor Octopus is a Maker Wizened Changeling, or a Genius.
    Dormammu is a Spirit, Rank 9, as is the Phoenix Force.
    Bullseye is a Slasher.
    Juggernaut is a Tammuz Titan? Could be emulated to a degee by an Anakim Ravager with Titanic Blow and Advanced Giant.
    Sentinels are Metalflesh Huntsmen, or Pandorans?...
