  • When a game says to use its native potency stat (like Blood Potency), but the rule is being applied to another type of monster that has a different potency stat (say Wyrd), substitute that monster's potency stat.

    For ghouls: we've said or implied in various places that headline monsters can't become ghouls. I retroactively regret that. I suggest that while monster ghouls should be rarer than human ones, monster ghouls should be allowed.

  • Predatory aura, Nimbus, and Hunter's Aspect are all auras.

    We'll be talking about this in the Contagion Chronicle Companion. There's an FAQ section that deals with some little corners of the CofD rules, and also has behind-the-scenes notes on how they developed.

    One of the nice things about being retired is that I can still throw around "World" and "nWoD" without worrying about annoying a licensor. ...

    God and angels aren't always the God-Machine. But the God-Machine is a strange set of phenomena that people didn't even have the idiom to describe until the industrial age, so it's been interpreted as divine or demonic a lot. As such, it makes a good vector for crossover.

    It's also possible that every hierarchical system is Infrastructure, even if that Infrastructure isn't built or manipulated by the God-Machine. That suggests that structure is an underlying attribute of the World of Darkness, and that the patterns that emerge are not fully coincidental. But so many things in the...

    Within Vampire, it's the gift of divine beings who have never revealed themselves to other creatures, of whom mortal tradition speaks but who cannot be verified to have spoken to anyone but Kindred. The angels of damnation are the true angels and the saints of the Kindred are the true saints. That's where I fell on a canon explanation.

    For crossover fun, though, it's the gift of God-Machine's angels, and the entire tradition of occultism among the Kindred is a self-perpetuating hierarchy that exists within the minds of the Damned. Occult traditions are systems, systems are formed...

    replied to Diablerising a strix
    This is so rare that whatever happens needs to be spectacular. I'm thinking something like permanent yellow eyes, the vampire's blood turning to smoke, and memories of the ancient past, before writing or language or fire, when human beings were merely instincts and fear and wits and hunger.

    replied to Are the Strix still a focus
    The Strix are the progenitors of some vampires, but not all vampires. There are probably also other spirits that diverged from humans and Kindred along the way that are similar to the Strix, but you might get further talking to the wolves.

    started a topic Infinite Macabre - To Darkly Go

    Infinite Macabre - To Darkly Go

    I've been in a space opera mood lately (blame the Picard trailer) and I've been thinking about combining it with horror (blame Outer Darkness). Which leads me back around to Infinite Macabre, one of the sci-fi shards we did for 1e.

    There are really striking images in IM, including the Gates marked with pre-Atlantean runes, the Watchtowers waiting undiscovered on distant worlds, and vampire corsairs devouring their way through deep space. Chuck really gave space a haunted and sometimes grisly feel, and capturing that at a table would be awesome.

    I think if I were going...

  • If they really like you, they probably won't kill you. On the other hand, they'll probably want to lie about having been sent to do it, because who wants to tell someone they like that they came to kill them?

    replied to The D&D thread
    I tend to think of "lawful" as less about law-as-legal-code as about the appropriate exercise of power. The Lawful alignments say: we should have boundaries laid down, we should have responsibilities delegated, if we want life to be good we need some structure. Leadership should be the product of agreement or merit.

    The Chaotic alignments say: we have seen how hierarchy and structure go. Wherever there has been structure, it has been used to enshrine tyrants. Wherever there has been assigned responsibility, it has been used by those tyrants to chip away at intrinsic freedoms....

    We know from the core that the Gentry weren't the first inhabitants of Arcadia, yet they style themselves its lords and majesties. The Gentry colonized Arcadia, where they did something with the inhabitants and dug the sleeping Huntsmen up and stole their hearts.

    They inflate their reputations and powers, always. They are masters of spin, and they get away with it by being nigh-immortal and being able to not only turn you into a toad but give you the destiny of one.

    If they weren't the true nobility of their kind, if there were graceful wicked...
