  • I think GenCon pushed everything back a bit, even Kickstarters for other gaming companies have had their pledge managers delayed.

  • I think groups tend to be better off if you give them their own decisions regarding what makes a lawbreaker. Vampires have the three traditions, for instance, which are generally embraced by all vampire-kind.

    I think that would veer into Black Dog territory. Even without the potential of strix involvement there was no way that was going to end up working well.

    A car trunk, maybe? You could just hold it over a fire.



    Standard defense would be enough, plus their Supernatural Tolerance. There's a misconception about Clash of Wills that it acts as some sort of extra resistance roll. It's really when two conflicting powers clash. Obfuscate vs Auspex, for instance. If someone was trying to turn the smoke into a vampire, sure because that goes directly against the power of the spell, but controlling the smoke wouldn't provoke any Clash of Wills.



    That's true, chemically. But it's likely close enough for spirits....

    Wind and water, actually. If you have Manipulate Air or Wind you can just put them in a bottle. Get a fetish or talen for Blood Influence and you can do whatever you want.

    Fire for pure damage, though....

    I gotcha, and I can completely understand that sort of playstyle, even knowingly, I just hope they came away from the battle ready to plan better next time....

    Yeah that's a nice one. Werewolves really have a lot of options better than confronting superpowered opponents head on after giving them time to arm themselves with silver weapons.

  • Well, they don't like werewolves. But individually they can vary. Plus as we have Azlu/Werewolf hybrids you could probably get more variation through other ways.

  • Spider-man could easily be portrayed as an azlu, or at least someone with an azlu soul shard. Otherwise, really, ridden or low-level claiming seems the best. The Predators book practically has a picture of Spider-man in it.

  • Light from distant stars skimming off the surface of the moon.

  • Yeah we had that too and I'm pretty sure we weren't that covered. Werewolves have better senses than I, though, and healing so the damage to their eyes would probably regenerate.

    But they do happen often, too, and werewolves are capable of traveling across oceans in a matter of hours, so it's entirely possible to have a group of them who follow these things. They could do the same with Lunar Eclipses, whether to study what goes on or to get away with stuff without Luna knowing, or just hunt down an Eclipse spirit for the nice Gift.

  • The only thing I've seen about the flashes is, apparently, if you catch it at the right angle, the star will sort of 'skim' along the edge of the moon, and be blocked out and come into light several times due to lunar mountains.


    But maybe it's just a Hisil thing.

    Regarding a moving locus, maybe the beshilu could take advantage. Locus' being thin points in the Gauntlet they'd probably find it easier to pierce the barrier if they had a big enough swarm....

  • Heh, nice, I like those. I tend to do Helions as war-like and imperious so them holed up in a fortress of sorts fits.

    I like the idea of the stellar eclipses. I suppose doing more with it would require assigning some meaning to the stars, or finding existing ones. I had some stellar influence unknowingly with my character. And I'm happy to have found out that our werewolf game is starting back up again.

    The Temple of Apollo would surely do something, perhaps go on some wild hunt for souls in fear that otherwise their god-wolf might starve and go away.

    To be fair, Gauru is really powerful. Even in one turn you can wipe out an entire group of humans using the Down & Dirty rules and come out without a scratch. In 5 turns most 'elite' opponents should be dead. Not counting big bosses, of course.

    Plus there's always Kuruth. The downsides of it have been diminished. You're not likely to attack packmates with it, and if you have an Elodoth they can drag you out. It potentially extends your time by 10 minutes to 12 hours....

  • Eclipses and their ramifications regarding the Hisil, its inhabitants, et al

    Title was too long. There's Solar, Lunar, Stellar Eclipses, as mentioned in books. Potentially more through the supernatural? Some sort of Hisil-only event? Perhaps a ghost moon?

    So, today North America got a nice solar eclipse, and in the world of Werewolf the Hiriraka have been born. The Hiriraka, along with other auspices, were introduced in Signs of the Moon and offer alternative auspices for those who have had their First Change under them.

    Helios' aspect has risen in importance to werewolves with second edition, him effectively shoving everything down during the...

    We were going to chaperone my son's class on a field trip to a museum for a better view and some fun, but he's come down sick so we'll just be watching from home.

    Do you happen to know which book was his last, as line developer? I think all I know of their publishing order was one of the Tomes came first and Left Hand Path and Imperial Mysteries came near the end.



    Nothing.



    These books have developers at the moment? Secrets of the Tribes and Shunned by the Moon? Or do you mean when developers are assigned to them?

    Also, wasn't there supposed to be web content that came with the Pack?

    I guess on this point I'm unclear on why it's a good time right now. I get that not having a...

  • Each dot is one Experience. So if you're just getting the first dot, it's one Experience. If you have the first, but you're getting the second, it's one Experience. But if you're buying the first three dots, it's three Experiences.

    I'd really suggest that if you're going to buy a suite of fighting style merits, you justify it through some montage or off-screen training your character's been undertaking. I probably wouldn't allow it in a short period like after the characters have stormed the foyer but before they've broken into the dining hall.

    Yes yes, we should be happy with what we have, we got it the first round when folks were denying there was a problem, we get it now when you say the problem isn't a problem anymore. We get the gist of what you are saying.

    Back to the topic. Rich posted this, to explain the process of pitch season and how books are made, and these two books seem like pitches.

    Considering they're announced I'd guess they're after this point.

    'At this point, I’ll create a run down that gives the short reasons for why each project is needed and cool, and submit that to our...
