Re: House Rules Announcements

TO make sure this is blatantly said, and I'll add it to the wiki later if needbe, you can NOT ever instantly kill someone/something by shapeshifting from a smaller/intangible form to a larger one inside someone, unless a power explicitly already accounts for that. Same for teleporting and similar ef...

Now Available: Z-Splats, Dhampir

So, starting today, we're introducing two new things: Dhampir and Z-Splats (Lodges, Entitlements, Bloodlines, Legacies). Dhampir Notes: 1) Dhampir are available as characters, the wiki will be tweaked to add them to character creation. There's minimal changes to them for Wanwic. 2) For now, no custo...

Re: House Rules Announcements

Clarified on the wiki that Sleepwalker spell holding and Banner Bearer is overall, not per each mage.

Reminder on Housing

As a reminder to folks, equipment in the GMC Rules Update IS available. You may buy supernatural equipment, as well as some of the stuff that was otherwise left out of the Core, like Housing (GMC 241): if you have a building that cost you X Resources, its equipment rating is equal to the Resources s...

Optional Duel Arcane Rules

The following optional rules have been submitted by Magus666 and tweaked slightly by myself and reviewed by the Storymasters. Players are free to use them for the Duel Arcane, although will not be forced to if they decide to utilize the simpler methodology: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1LghWVu...

Request Limits

Hello all! So, recently, we've been finding a lot of requests going into the system, often overwhelming the Storytellers and other staff members they're for, so we're going to, for the time being, be reinforcing our suggested time limits on requests, making them a requirement for the time being, for...

Re: House Rules Announcements

Made a slight tweak to spriit speech, added the following for clarification so it's there in black and white: "Those with the second dot who can take on a 'wolf' or similar sort of form can speak a word or two at a time with no roll or Willpower, as their throat can take on the shape naturally,...

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

Lost Boy merits are listed as supernatural merits, some players however treat them as if they are actually just bleeding edge mundane technology. Can we get a call officially as to how they should be treated? If they are actually on some level magic in nature than they respond to certain effects di...

Re: House Rules Announcements

Redid the 'magic' entry on the wiki, it's now based on source. *In Blue Books, Vampire, and Werewolf, merits/powers that provide protection against or affect ‘Magic’ in general, without referencing a specific type, protect against any power that’s activated with an extended action, a power that take...

Re: House Rules Announcements

Given the confusion regarding Language (First Tongue), for non-wolves, we've decided to make that merit Werewolf only, but are introducing the following for everyone else: Spirit Speech (• to ••) Your character, whether through intense study, a blessing of a spirit, or a quirk of birth, is capable o...

Re: House Rules Announcements

Another elder tweak, the Coil of Quintessence Scales require you to actually have the prerequisite coil, since they have a tendency to grant the full effects of it.

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

If a non vampire somehow gains status (or the association merits) in a vampire covenant can they gain covenant merits that don't require vitae or discipline prereqs? Per the book policy page: "Finally, no merit listed grants access to template abilities, unique merits (other than those listed ...

Re: House Rules Announcements

MCI rules have shifted slightly; you may slightly tweak merits even before level 5, and this has been reflected in the wiki. Please do not abuse this; only 1 or so levels other than 5 itself should be tweaked for a given Cult, as a general rule. For those that have already submitted MCIs that had to...

Re: Rules Clarifications (Player Input required!)

Are the ghostly or spiritual wolves that make up the Wolfblooded Tell, Phantom Pack, detected by spirit-sensing powers? Twilight Sight powers might give some occasional hint of them, but for the most part, no. Something like Spirit Mage-Sight or certain information-gathering Facets may provide othe...
