  • You could do the veil entirely within the confines of Mage the Ascenscion and it'd work just as well. Honestly that's my default assumption. The only difference for Vampire then is that the Camarilla isn't actually behind the veil. You wouldn't even have to do a crossover for it, it'd just be another shared setting element (like Pentex which is used both in Mage and Werewolf).

    As for allowing technology to be as supernatural as I dunno, nightclubs or politics or whatnot I think instead of a supernatural facebook you should have isolated supernatural chats and stuff like that. Smaller...

    How about just having the internet and information technology strengthen the masquerade instead of weakening it?

    So a central problem of urban fantasy in the modern age is that keeping the masquerade is far less believable today then thirty years ago. Especially in settings such as WoD that was never built to handle information technology and global internet communication.

    V5 tries to handle the issue by stating that the masquerade is broken kinda sorta but also not, which I dunno. It just feels like it pushes it off a bit into the future and even then not so...
