  • Okay, I want to get to the rest of the post in full but that will take time, but I couldn't possibly disagree more with this.

    The entire central thesis of the game is about the human contribution to that force's advancement. It's all over everywhere. There's a supernatural corruption that gloms onto your soul and turns you evil and makes you do evil things that hurt other people. The game then says "oh and that corruption, which works like the Shadowlands Taint or Generic Blizzard Fel Corruption or whatever, is something so omnipresent you don't even notice how fucked up and...

  • Princess: the Hopeful, Crystal Edition

    Princess: the Hopeful is a fanmade game line about magical girls in the Chronicles of Darkness, struggling against the overwhelming evil with the light of Hope. A lot of people loved the premise but found the rules clunky and the execution profoundly unfocused. I was one of them.

    Princess: The Hopeful, Crystal Edition

    It's not DONE done -- it's in beta, which means it's feature-complete. A few options need to be filled in (a couple stat blocks, some Signets only have one option at a given level, Embassies don't have all their benefits, and not all the interstitial fictions...
