    Um... Just saying, who needs to be in a position of power when you can just lace the senator's drink with vampire blood and let them do all the work for you?

        • Nyrufa,

          I'm a bit confused at point one because it does sum up my argument to a point but has no counter argument. Are you agreeing with me on that point? Just pointing out the similarities? Tiny bit confused at that part.

          Anyways the fine detail between that and point two is not that humanity is superior to monsters because they are weaker than them and are desperate enough to use extreme force against them. My point was that any monster who dismisses a human because of their own belief in supernatural supremacy is in for a rude awakening when they see just how capable humans are at hunting monsters.

          • @Jakondite,

            Have you heard of the Barret Comission (might be miss-spelled)?

            Because that's why Kindred don't try that shit anymore. It's way easier and less conspicuous to target their secretaries. Nobody in power cares about the secretaries.

              Was pointing out the similarities in point 1. I see the message that it was trying to convey about humanity, but I also see the error in such a philosophy. Yes, humans are adaptable, but they never consider their enemy might be the same. Hell, there are many powers and abilities across multiple splats that are specifically designed to adapt to their environment; and they have the potential ability to develop brand new powers over time through practice and study.


              On the subject of humans being effective at hunting monsters, I think the anime Shiki, is a perfect example of what happens when a bunch of terrified humans unite against a monstrous invasion.

              long story short - Mob Justice: humans are the real monsters.

              1 - Vampires have been involved in controlling a shadow government for thousands of years and have one clan (Ventrue) who is specifically dedicated to holding positions of power. They also have another clan (Daeva), who are masters at social manipulation. You really think with all that time, experience, and machinations that there are no vampires with access to WMD's?


              2 - Most Werewolves don't seem to particularly care enough about civilization to worry about technology. But then again, they don't really need to. They command the powers of nature itself; and everybody knows just how destructive mother nature can be when she's pissed at us.


              3 - Prometheans, as I have been lead to believe, are on the same level as Scions. Meaning that you're going to need military grade weapons and a whole lot of hunters to be anything more than a minor annoyance to them. Last time I heard, they were strong enough to pick up a commercial airliner and hurl it through a skyscraper!


              4 - I don't know much about mummies, but I understand that they A) can not be permanently destroyed, and B) have a literal cult following who protects and serves them. Religious authority can be even more dangerous than political authority, especially when you indoctrinate more people under your control.

                Very fair point. Perhaps in some ways we're arguing the same point from both sides? Just like monsters better not underestimate humans, so too must humans never underestimate monsters. Pride comes before the fall, no matter who or what.

                Along that line of thinking there is one thing I forgot to mention regarding humans, specifically the Hunter Conspiracies. Given the need humans will find a way to develop or steal supernatural powers of their own. Just like nothing stops a Mage from dropping a bomb on humans, nothing stops a human from casting a ritual on a Mage. To be fair though, some splats are far better suited for different skills and abilities, but the potential is there. That's why the Conspiracies are so terrifying.

                • Just as a point of order, many of humanity's vaunted advantages are tropes more than reality.

                          [The song is] largely about sanctuary, about this idea that - to offer someone a place to go that is safe, that is safe for whoever they are and whatever has happened in their lives. That's a profound notion, y'know. 'Cause it's what you want. It's what you get, as a young child if you have good parents, is, "You have a sanctuary here, you are safe with us." Heavy thing to say to people, "You are safe with us." It's like a responsibility, but it's also…

                          It's a big promise. It's usually one that most people can only fulfill for so long, because you can't protect people, but you can say, "I'll do what I can," and that in itself is pretty deep. Y'know, the fact that the house in the song sounds like it's full of people who might or might not be the best of people? This is something I would find among doper friends, that, like, they will rob you and each other, but they also - there's an extent of protection, there's a clannishness that can feel real safe in an unsafe time. You can go, "Well, Dave will rob me if I fall asleep, but he will protect me in case we run into trouble."
