  • Weeeeellllll.

    To fair, there's a few places where that gets a little wonky and dis-believable, but that's mostly because Chronicles is a mystery setting. The Strix's claim is most probably bullshit, but there's enough edge cases to create pause.

    replied to Confused about Aeons?
    Arthurian Mythos is popular and recursive worldwide. It has been reinterpreted across countless cultures, and is, across those cultures, among some of the first things their youth learns about, even as an abstract rather than any particular story collection.

    If you're talking about an exact look for Mordred...that's sort of missing the point. People have the Idea of Mordred, they have a Mordred in their head. It is this Archetype that the Aeon of Fate is now branded with and plays to. Even a person who only has a passing knowledge of the Camelot story is not going to have to look...

    Minor clarification, because sometimes Exact Wording Has Consequences.

    Mordred, son of Arthur Pendragon, is not the Aeon of Fate.

    The Aeon of Fate now basically has to wear Mordred's iconography because Merlin's Ascension has consequences.

    None of the Aeon's are the figures we see them as, but the figures they present as are, for one reason or another, powerful enough images they basically have to be worn by the Aeons.

    And even that's a little flubby.

    EDIT: ANd I realize you said that, but in the particular instance, I think there...

  • Welp, since I've had a look a tthis, two things must be mentioned:

    1) Keeping the universal parent focus with the Dark Mother sort misses out of the involvement of the Progenitor-Beasts-which is fair, since we only have allusions to them in the BPG. Still, there was a sense of that in all the text before hand that the Families weren't just the product of one Astral Entity, that the Families emerged from the Dark Mother's seven spouses. THis is a notable contrast to the idea that the Insatiable claim the Primogenitor as a universal parental figure in comparison and contrast to the...

  • As a very crass comparison, I like both Werewolf the Forsaken 2nd Edition and Tenra Bansho Zero as expressions of physical violence, but I wouldn't use TBZ's "Every attack can be counter-attacked" base system for Forsaken.

    Momentum's fun, but it clashes with Forsaken's sensiblities.

    replied to Unbreakable Atavism ?
    In as close as I get to the position (as having written for it and being one of a few people who might dev books going forward), I saw this earlier on Facebook and have mulled over it.

    My technical take is dependent upon the character who benefits and if the scene is supposed to be triumphant or terrifying for the player. If this a scene where all other efforts of the players is not only supposed to manifest, but take the sum of experience and turn it into a win, then treat it like a weapon or firearm, but if it's supposed to represent a failure of knowledge or basically just that...

    I buy the Arisen made it out eastwards. I don't think enough was done with it.

    The reason I am an alcoholic is not related to the nine shots of brandy I have had before this point in response to a gigantically shitty evening involving post work-stress, intense family drama, and tempestuous personal reflection after the fact.

    The reason I am an alcoholic is totally related to the fact I'm more or less resolved emotionally, and I'm still having another three shots.

    I also hate that I'm mentally comprehensive enough to realize that's a problem, but not emotionally comprehensive enough to care.

    God the past year has been a fucking shit...

  • THe first thing that stands out to me is the sort of failed comparison between the Contagion Chronicle and Beyond the Grave by terms of teams-if over half the team that played in Grave isn't there for Contagion, then a comparison between the two strikes me as more of an apples and oranges situation. So as that goes, I'm going to say you shouldn't worry about that.

    The second thing that stands out to me is that it doesn't look like your players are getting into the buy-in for Contagion, based on the fact that they are a) all werewolves, b) apparently aiming at different factions split...

    It just didn't grab me, although that feels like I'm selling the experience short. It was almost an anti-grab, I had hard time reading my way through it. I can't point out any particular reason why (I can cite flaws, but there are honestly other Dark Eras with deeper flaws that I could get through just fine), it just really didn't gel with me.


    It's worth remembering that the Heritage House believes that the hunter factions shouldn't conflict with each other, and it's not a far reading outside of that to see that Heritage House has the ambition to unite factions into one global...

    Not really related to the topic, but it's worth noting that the Union wouldn't incorporate the Night Watch for the same reason they're separate compacts to begin with-Night Watch compromises criminal members who are from the low-class, impoverished, and often ethnic minorities that the members that make up the Union would be more inclined against-while there's a spectrum to the political ideologies that might be found in the compact, there's a strong presentation that the majority leans towards Republican attitudes and ideiologies. Trump's America has some fans in the Union. Night Watch exists...
