    Hamster, more questions does not stop the fact that all of these are simple questions that do not need their own thread. I can answer all of them in a heartbeat and the only reason I refuse to is because this is ridiculous.

  • I need to preface conversations with the degree to which I am going to stay involved. ANYWAYS.

    The clear and obvious answer are the questions "how much worth is there in upholding that legacy?" and "Why use words that have a vague, ill-defined blob of meaning in the first place?"*, but those are rabbit holes of spiraling lengths I don't want to dive too much down. But I'm gonna point out that, borrowing the bloated form here, this is one of the problems that is pertinent in the conversation that V5 is very Ponyfinder and That's A Problem For Some People-I mean,...

  • I mean, why did you need to update here? No one was following it, it wasn't still engaged. This just.

    Whatever.

  • I haven't looked at it in a long time to see if the mechanics can work with 2e, but I would strongly recommend buying it regardless. It has a lot of really cool stuff and some much needed clarity on it's subject matter....

  • I mean, my main point was "There are no such things as vampires so trying to claim that there is any actual form or point of vampire to adhere is not true and also a dumb assertion", thought that was pretty clear, BUT Monalfie's more or less got my point as regards this different conversation.

  • So I really don't care about Trippy's arguments one way or the other (and really, I'm just sitting here, drinking my wine waiting for the inevitable moderator action and placing odds on the degree of response as that goes), nor do I care about Hunger in it's specific minutia in how it affects the game because by and large I trust Heavy Arms has it right as he often has over the years of consuming content on these forums and their predecessors and I'm also still not in a position of giving Paradox Wolf my money to make the exact execution of the mechanic an actual concern of mine-

  • Arms, as much as I love your arguments, I'm inclined to invite you to sit back, enjoy the wine, and come back in once the hamartia plays out.

    But also, for the benefit of the thread, the referenced post is what we in the business call "very correct."...

  • As an aside, hopefully without raising too much of a fuss, to see why the attitude is a problem, check out the "V5 Sour Grapes" Thread over in the Masquerade forums to see how a game over-emphasizing it's mainstay activity (Hunger, in that case) can actually form an impediment to fuller stories being told-at least, if you happen to agree with the people who feel that way(even if you don't, it's worth seeing how the arguments along those lines factors into this conversation)

    PS: Also, let's not take this as an invite to extend that conversation in here, I'm using those arguments...

  • Follow me here:

    Vampires can do things other than continually seek out blood.
    Werewolves have more shit to do than Sacred Hunts.
    Mages aren't always running down Mysteries.
    Prometheans don't always have to make the interactions with everything a matter of personal significance as regards their Pilgramage.
    Changelings sometimes just enjoy life and do so in ways that are not an active means to hide from Huntsmen and True Fae.
    Hunters don't spend every night diving into the darkness to learn secrets or chop off heads.
    Sin-Eaters have more of life to...

    I did, once upon a time, when I thought it would only be fair to match my antagonist's power level to my hunter's XP count.

    I very quickly realized that was a losing strategy. PC's are wily bunches designed to handle more than they can conventionally chew....

  • I mean, Obcasus Rites, Communion, and Guidance don't come from nowhere. The Dark Mother's "absence" is more important for how close she should be rather than actual indicator of absence. Her active presence is still very much there-there's a reason Beasts have no doubt that Mama is watching.

    EDIT: Also all the fiction where she directly gets involved with Beasts more than, say, Luna does, and also notably her furious response to the Erased.

    'Nuther EDIT: Also probably the entire reason World Goetia travel from The Mother's Land to the Primordial Dream and self-incubate...

  • No. That's dumb.

    Hunger is a obviously a big motivator, but your Life and Legend are not solely defined by it. You have a world outside of your stomach, and you have thoughts and interests beyond satisfying it. Your Hunger might color your motivations, but at the end of the day it's primarily a motivation when you have nothing else to do.

    Much like the drives of any other character....

  • First Broken Premise: That Beasts are solely motivated by their Hungers. They are not, a Tyrant can be as interested in the secrets of the Dark Mother as a Whisper.

    Second Broken Premise: That Collectors can't buy into the Athaneum as a Curator of a Chamber connected to the Athaneum. Just because's a group effort doesn't mean there isn't some jockeying for position, and contributing meaningful space to the Athaneum is a good grounds for the inevitable claiming of curatorship over the current holder over the course of long years of politicking for the position. Also see the First Broken...
