    When you downloaded the pdf there was a link to where you send in errata. If you aren't sure if it hasn't been reported, it's probably best to send it in as such....

  • I always enjoyed their field tactics sections in the supplement books, with regulations about how many you need to do certain things. But it would have been hitting a smaller niche than Ordo and clan fans. Maybe they'll have cut-out sections of it for the fiction in some of the supplements....

    Kind of built into them by the Rite of Return, though they don't know if that's the intent or accident. 'purpose of the Arisen is to shepherd human civilization into patterns of rise, imperial phase, and fall, both so that no empire will overshadow the first and that the patterns of art conceived in Irem will continue to perpetuate.' Theoretically you could break it through Apotheosis....

    Likely. As Nicolas Milioni points out the Flag-Smashers were created in the mid-80s, but they were meant to represent anti-nationalism. Though I get the feeling the "media pushes a left wing agenda!" crowd only pipes up when there's women or people of color or any non-hetero sex involved, and will probably shrug off suggestions that this was anything other than a random choice that happens to coincide with topical events....

  • I think originally the Obsession Condition was involved but probably excised to let players go all out. Obsessions are described as if they have a, as Tessie says, stick, and the fiction really hammers it home, but mechanically there is none offered.

  • The Demon Storyteller Guide has a really basic system for making almost every gameline creature as well as some of their antagonists, using just core systems so you don't have to know anything about Demon to run.

  • From the Ordo Dracul book, p176, "Whereas the Coils of the Dragon are meant to overcome the curse laid upon Dracula and all Kindred, these apocryphal pseudo-Coils either subvert the power that was bestowed with the curse, or warp the nature of the curse without truly overcoming it.
    These philosophies are not officially welcome within the covenant. Knowledge of these powers is forbidden. Dragons found to have studied them should expect to be severely punished. Knowledge of these powers is one of the few ways for a Dragon to be driven out of the covenant — though most such Kindred are...

  • Once you get used to it it's less of an issue. I think going to this 'helper' especially if you're barely exposed to the mechanics, can make it seem more daunting than it would actually be. Especially since out-of-combat stuff is more likely to use down and dirty casting, and in-combat spells are less likely to be very complicated.

    I prefer the appendix in the back of the book to really cast the spells, most of the time you don't have to even worry about things like Paradox, which only really comes into play when you're overreaching, and what an arcana is capable of is usually shown...

  • Most would not likely be able to reform from this. When a spirit is killed, it discorporates and finds someplace Resonant with it to get some Essence. Like a house spirit would go to its relevant house location and hibernate in dormancy. If you're doing more and more damage to it here, and at this point everything would bleed over to aggravated, a nuclear blast would do so much damage that these spirits would likely die their final death and the area would become barren of any depth.

    Basically, in single combat they 'die' and reform in a safe place. In a nuclear blast there is little...

  • The previous thread about this. Acrozatarim is one of the writers of the original core.


    1. That would be 10 Experiences, which would imply a very powerful totem (you would need at least 20 dots across the pack). It's doable, though. And yes, as on p92 'Whatever trait the players buy, every member of the pack
    gains it.' Not everyone is instantly accepted into the pack by the totem, though, so it would be a bit gradual depending on how you had the pack set up. And if you used the character creation, you would have the pack already established, so it would have been something...

  • They are expert trackers, so I wouldn't say it would be too hard to find it unless it was a really trickily unique spirit, or magath, which could be anywhere. Even then it might just be some tracking, Gifts can go a long way to help. For more powerful spirits the harder issue might be dealing with their minions. You can easily justify making it more difficult, of course, like having it be the minion of a more powerful spirit (or other thing, like a claimed or idigam) who its discorporated self returns to. Nice way to bring cults into the equation....

  • Yes, rites are not normally things you use in battle, or in the battles of others. Theoretically you could manage it so that the pack is holding something long enough to enact Shadowbind or Fetish, especially with bans or banes like you mentioned, but that's not their primary use.

    Normally, when you 'kill' a spirit, you haven't drained all its Essence, and now it will discorporate and be inactive for a long period of time until it gets enough Essence back. This is when you use Shadowbind or Fetish. After you've beaten a spirit. You can manage some other ways, like threatening it enough...

  • The core reason for their being is up to you, but some of this at least has been answered.

    Where they come from: Here, our world. Father Wolf caught as many as he could and threw them up to the moon to act as a prison. These are called the Moon-Banished. During strange astronomical events and things like the moon landing many have hitched their ways back. Others fled from Father Wolf, to the depths of the sea or Earth, and bided their time until they sensed no danger from him and resurfaced. These are called the Earthbound. There's no mechanical difference between them but the the...

    replied to Just got my copy of Fangs at the Gate!
    Just got mine today.

    Mail in America is really slow right now. In some places it's fine but in others there's a lot of slowdowns. They got rid of a lot of sorting machines before the election, then got slammed by the holidays. I was getting Christmas stuff well into January and only last week did I get a stimulus check which got sent out the 6th.

    replied to Beshilu Articles
    I think you'd see some weird pieces similar to the 2020 stories about rats attacking people. In real life it was due to them having less to scavenge because of less people going out. There was also a story about someone who was walking on the sidewalk and it collapsed beneath them, and they ended up in a hole full of rats. So, if the beshilu were active (in rat form) in certain places you might get public health warnings, and increased restaurant fines or shutdowns due to the increased number of the vermin.

    Since they tend to get host bodies to do a lot of their more relevant activity...
