    Seriously, people constantly wanted to take her apart or control her too.

  • No problem, though I might have gotten some details wrong, the rite says it can let you join the Tribes of the Moon, and it gets rid of your Pure renown, but it doesn't give you a new auspice, it just sort of makes you a Forsaken. There were some plot hooks for getting your full auspice blessing back, however. The lodge is more about finding and helping Pure convert back, so the ex-Pure don't have to join, but it's easy to imagine them joining up to help others later.



    I say go for it, I always liked the idea of quests to earn the auspice back, something to make yourself...

  • It's rare enough that the only times it's mentioned in the setting is when there's specifically an option for redeeming them. Usually you want a high bar for it, so you don't just have a tug of war with Forsaken grabbing Pure and giving them Auspices, then Pure grabbing them back and ripping them off. You can see some options for it scattered across the books, one of the more notable ones is the Lodge of Salvation, a lodge about, well, saving Pure and re-Baptizing them with a new (only Rahu) auspice.



    Mostly a vestige of first edition, where the Pure put forth the theory...

    I think things got hung up on Nyrufa's reasoning for his choices, despite people knowing he wasn't willing to think about it at a deeper level or change his mind, from his statement, 'I vehemently refuse to believe this, and there is nothing anybody can say on this or any other forum to convince me otherwise.' The cliques didn't help, either.

    I haven't read the way too many posts since I last posted, but Nyrufa's first post was basically filling out the form. Their default rating is R. Red on Romance/Sex with him in a group setting, Fade to Black with group sex, Green with Racism/Sexism,...

    Rats and spiders tend to be common monsters found in RPGs, which is likely why they're called out. You could have a blank spot for 'Animals' but saying it doesn't need to be on the list seems superfluous. It would make no difference if it said Centipedes and Snakes but they went with Rats and Spiders.



    I appreciate you want to defend Nyrufa but its based off him saying, 'And I prefer my Orcs and Goblinoids to be slave trading, rape crazed barbarians.'

    That said, I'm not really directing any arguments against him because he hasn't expressed any stance regarding...

    It's specifically on a list so you don't need to get into the details of why you are afraid of spiders and not centipedes, or centipedes and not spiders, so you don't have to justify triggers to people you don't know and can just trust that they won't use them against you.

    I appreciate a lot of us play with people we have played with for years and know very well, but there's always new people coming into the community and even the people we do know can change, and with the surge of online gaming there's a lot of people getting into games without knowing much about the others they're...

  • Yes, but not just by adding dice.

    P115, 'Multiple Sleeper witnesses do not add Paradox dice, but increase the chances of a Paradox occurring. If a few Sleepers witness the magic casting, the Paradox roll gains the 9-Again quality, a large group grants the Paradox roll the 8-Again quality, and a full crowd grants the Paradox roll the rote quality.'...

    Might recommend more than the first four, though maybe the anime has something redeeming about it. I read the light novels, and based on Wikipedia each novel seems to fit four episodes at a time.

  • You're really spread out in terms of Influences, and Money and Violence don't really scream sex cult. Passion 3, Sex 1 should do the trick (or the other way around, or Sex 3, Vice 1).



    If it's offering the Mystery Cult Initiation, it implies it is the head of or at least a powerful influence on a mystery cult. Or perhaps a spirit of cults.

    Professional Training would imply it's a spirit of certain professions. Like Soldier for a spirit of war (and not just random combat, but aspects of war like the bureaucracy or organization), Doctor for a spirit of not...

    Rules Clarification Question

    I'm asking for an acquaintance who is having a disagreement with their storyteller. I believe they seek the ideal Word of God, a writer or developer answering.
    I have a rules question which I believe maybe deserving errata clarification. My Game Master is trying to tell me, that players still have to pay Experience for the Cruac Dot they gain from Mantle of the Crone, because the wording of the ritual says the character gains a dot of Cruac, but does not explicitly use the word "Free" there for character both players and NPCs would have to spend experience to gain the Cruac Dot...

  • From the perspective of someone who has no idea what has changed between editions, which of the first edition books seem to retain important aspects of the setting and background for the game?

  • Thank you for all you've done. I know the language sometimes acts as a barrier to new players but I think once established it's helped us really get some healthy depth to the setting of the game.


    And that's appreciated as well, I did have a translation question. Making wrath hosts and was wondering if it would be azithalu? Or azithu?

    Also, out of curiosity, are you working on anything for the new Dark Eras?...

    He learn by going in the roots of the world tree that Ragnarok will never happen and is trying to force it by forcing the hand of the sons of Fenris (werewolves) to kill him. (P.98 of shun by the moon for inspiration)[/quote]

    I haven't played the video game but that sounds good.



    Sounds really good, you might look at the Fall of Fenris for some ideas, mostly the inclusion of hive-claimed for giants, and the Lodge of Muspell. I kind of like the idea of Predator Kings maybe breeding with giants, getting stronger and more vicious stock, which was something done...

  • Loving the book, too.

    Core, p190. 'Most possessing spirits Fetter themselves to their intended hosts and use the Possess Manifestation Effect to take full control only in emergencies.' And while they can't use Influences or Numina on other targets while Fettering, you can use Influences on the one you're Fettered to (and it's cheaper).

    I think Broken Mirror would mostly just remain Fettered to Rebecca, and Urge her when something necessary came up, like to steer her into or away from some supernatural mischief. Then like it says 'When Broken Mirror desires more direct...

  • Have you ever seen the Wire? The Hamsterdam arc? Or the Purge? Not every spirit is just a rampant barbarian eager to break the rules of their life and jump into the gurihal, but some might be pushed to it, as victims of excessive predation, starvation, or the oppressive gravity of Helios. Most powerful or established spirits could probably cross the Gauntlet without outside help, but don't because they've managed to find a way to thrive there. Also, remember, Father Wolf was the God of the Border Marches, werewolves are limited to both sides of the Gauntlet. Between this, and being superb trackers,...

    My mother-in-law is dying and I can't help but feel angry that, just like her husband years ago, she could have done innumerable things about it before it got this far but instead didn't bother. I'll not stop loving her but damn I'm angry at her for letting it get to this. And it doesn't help that my wife's side of the family are too busy sniping at each other to be supportive, or anything other than self-absorbed.

    That's providing they're mortal or wolf-blooded, and a special case besides.

    Emerus, yes you can have a bunch of other supernaturals in your pack. You might lean more towards Contagion than Werewolf for this, though, Contagion being the system made for abundant crossover, with factions and powers for groups based on how many different kinds of supernaturals are in them.
