Strange sound on chat

So, whenever a message sound plays on chat lately, it's then followed by my speakers crackling loudly and silencing anything else playing on the computer at the moment. The speakers don't allow exclusive control or anything right now, so I'm not sure why it's doing that. Anyone else having this issue?

Re: House Rules Announcements

Hey folks it's been a while. So I've been reading this and mostly avoiding Wanton and as others have said that this sort of behavior is the tip of the iceberg as to why I stepped away. Anyways most of the posts here don't actually tackle what I think the issue is with the ruling. The current rule d...

Re: House Rules Announcements

Seems like I am in the minority here especially since I also have a mage but, I don't really have an issue with this. Infact giving how complex mage is and the likely hood of abuse/error in computing spells especially prolonged or combination spells I am kind of surprised there is so much push back...

Re: House Rules Announcements

This seems like a lot of micromanagement and busy work for little gain and a lot of loss. It also means players of splats that CANT just add a reach and slight penalty to go to indefinite are stuck making a bunch of bluebooks every 3 months because they are inherently unable to just push a little fu...

A little game: 4.0 Epilogues

Less a game and more a final bit of storytelling, but regardless, this thread is meant to be a place for people to give their headcanon for what happened to their 4.0 character after the game ended, timeline-wise. Feel free to give an explanation for as many characters as you played, and don't feel ...

Re: Changeling and rules changes

No, he's right, there's exceptions. Vampires have the Coil of Zirnitra in the Ordo (Assuming that's still there when Secrets of the Covenants comes out) which lets them get those merits, several changeling kiths give them a supernatural merit specifically (But yeah, it wouldn't let you buy more), an...

Re: Merits that give more

Professional training I don't think is an issue, because as mentioned, you get one profession, and it's easy enough to prevent you from starting with 5 dots in it without a very good reason ("Wait, why does your 20 year old character have 5 dots in profession (Doctor) again?"). Mystery Cul...

Yeah I second that. I've forgotten the details of a couple of the chosen pitches.

Re: Sanctity of Merits and PvP

So that's why I'm not getting why you're so stuck on why those things need to be lost to make that Rp and story fun.

Re: Sanctity of Merits and PvP

However, those AREN'T the rules here (that you can't die unless you agree or the ST thinks you REALLY screwed up), and I think MOST players believe (or at least say they do) that RP and Story is more important than counting up the dots on your sheet. It's not the destination,it's the journey. If yo...

Summarizing in an insulting, inaccurate manner doesn't mean that's actually what I was saying, just to be clear.

Re: Sanctity of Merits and PvP

WoD is not about sheet growth. if you want sheet growth play hack n slash games like DnD, Rifts, or Cyber Punk. What makes WoD chat or LARP great is the intrigue. People who are only focused on the sheet growth has no true understanding of the story and what makes it so enjoyable to play. I can say...

Re: Sanctity of Merits and PvP

how do you know what their merits are? to attack something you must know it exists. If you are in an influence war, things happen. If you spent money onf Stocks IRL and the market crashes. guess what....you loose the money. merits that representing physical things are the same thing. Part of the in...

Re: Sanctity of Merits and PvP

I think we've been experiencing this game very differently. Even in Vampire, the majority of the plots and enemies my character's has to deal with have been NPCs and PrP plot monsters, things along those lines. So, saying that the chat works that way inherently is false, because clearly that's not t...

Re: Sanctity of Merits and PvP

No, clearly the system WASN'T built to have PvP be a big focus of it. That's because the system was built for 5 or 6 people sitting around a table playing a game with goals that they would generally be cooperating on with constant attention by a ST , not for a couple hundred people in a 24/7 enviro...
