Main thing with Auspices in play is Gifts.

An Elodoth can:
- end or force the Death Rage. Use this tactically; you can spare your pack a lot of trouble or cause a lot for another pack.
- detect lies, great for investigation. If you don't give them an investigation to do, they should investigate rival packs to see how they can fuck them up. You can also force reliable information out of a defeated pack.
- bind oaths, so when you dominate another pack you can force a month-long arrangement on them. Also useful for resolving conflicts in the extended pack. And while you say the pack is an island, it doesn't have to stay that way. The pack could use their Elodoth to form closer working relationships with other packs. With regular PK attacks you must have dangerous enemies in common. The pack should consider claiming territory it doesn't want and then giving it away, because this is both super Honorable and puts another pack in your debt.

Affinity Honor facets include:
- Hunting gives speak to animals. If you're fighting PKs, they probably live someplace with an ecosystem for them to be at the top of. Get to the animals and turn them into double agents. Make them swear oaths of loyalty and report back. More straightforwardly, use animals to guard and patrol your own territory or check out your current targets. They're easy to bribe, just offer food, water, and shelter.
- Pack gives the option to summon the pack totem as a Gauru combatant. In a close fight, this is worth it as a panic button.
- Insight grants visions about objects. If you're winning fights you're probably capturing some interesting objects. Probe them for information about enemy territories or the secrets of their Rites.
- Warding locks exits, useful in a pursuit. You guys hunt Hosts? Beshilu are common in urban environments and usually try to flee from werewolf packs. Trap that bitch in a building.

@happy_sad
/tg/thread/55017527#p55026909
You didn't say which tribe, so here's some other notable Honor facets by tribe affinity.

Affinity for Storm Lords:
- Dominance gives a sort of Falling Touch variant, useful for debuffing opponents.
- Weather reduces weather penalties, and can be granted to other pack members as well. Even if you can't summon your own bad weather, you can still attack in it. This can put rival packs at a disadvantage on every roll.

Affinity for Blood Talons:
- Inspiration can be used to improve the pack's Initiative.
- Rage can prolong Gauru.
- Strength gives an enemy a Defense penalty against the next attack by a pack member.

Affinity for Hunters in Darkness:
- Nature has another prey-trapping facet, a wilderness counterpart to the one in Warding.
- Stealth can improve stealth for the whole pack.

Affinity for Iron Masters:
- Knowledge lets you instantly investigate anybody you see. Use this to profile rival packs. In some cases, detailed information on one pack is something another pack will barter for. In others, use this to put pressure on their extended pack by locating homes and stuff.
- Shaping lets you destroy enemy weapons. Fighting somebody in the Lodge of Arms? EAT MA PERIOD.
- Technology can control or disable devices, including guns.

Affinity for Bone Shadows:
- Death can transfer damage from a packmate to yourself.
- Elements gives Influence Earth. This is a good facet because the pool includes Strength, which is easy to boost with shifting. In the right environment you can milk this for attacks (falling rock, rockslide, damaged building) and conditions (uneven footing, dust storm).

See /tg/thread/55017527#p55027900

Werewolves can, and should, do more than engage in bloody conflict.

An Iron Master Elodoth attorney can do more for the Pack and the Forsaken overall than a slobbering one-note, hack'n'slash Blood Talen Rahu.

Sadly, many Forsaken players haven't yet graduated from killing orcs in D&D.

Multidimensional players capable of dealing effectively intellectual and social scenarios, as well as the inevitable physical combat, apparently play Mage
Guess who'll handle the local wizard better, the Elodoth or Rahu...

So there's no need for a Beast to actively feed or go around teaching lessons?

When their satiety gets too low, the Horror will go out on it's own and munch on people's nightmares automatically.

Could you just cut the hunger/lessons stuff entirely?

Lessons should definitely be cut, except maybe as a paper-thin rationalization used by a particularly nasty antagonist. Hunger however drives the game and needs to stay in.

What if you need the wizards help (you know, mages aren't *always* the bad guys), and you have to hunt for some tome, relic, rare doodad or person?

Similarly, what happens when you need to negotiate with powerful mage/vampire/changeling/etc. for the bane of a powerful spirit adversary?

The Elodoth is the "face" of the group, and his skills and abilities often mean the difference between success and oblivion.

It's sad to see a game as good as a Forsaken 2e with players who approach it the same way someone rolls a Fighter to kill orcs in D&D.

Werewolf doesn't need a face character. I have yet to meet a player who wanted to play a face character in werewolf. Usually someone is forced to play elodoth because the kuruth management and totems wrath is too good to pass up.

@happy_sad
detect lies, great for investigation. If you don't give them an investigation to do, they should investigate rival packs to see how they can fuck them up. You can also force reliable information out of a defeated pack.

How can they do that? I ask because their power seems a very expensive "detect lies" but first they gotta be on speaking terms on other Urathas.

I started the game by giving them a piece of a territory given them from elder pack, hoping they would want to expand it. But them they turned totally passive and just went "eh why would we want more?"

I tried to force the elodoth into negotiation by putting a nearby packs slacking off and putting the whole "their slacking off affect your territory" but them they went full frontal assault on the weaker pack and cede the part of the territory to the elder pack.

@happy_sad
Not all hunts need be violent affairs. You can hunt for knowledge, secrets, and solutions to all sorts of problems. Elodoth shine in these scenarios.

My issue is they never do the hunt. They dont get it and try to explain it how they can hunt for other stuff besides things to punch.

@Ignoramus
As for another Rahu, Totem's Wrath gives the pack another combatant in addition to the Elodoth.

Doesnt that gift sours the packs relationship with the totem? And make you potentially loose it.

@Soft_member
Werewolves can, and should, do more than engage in bloody conflict.
An Iron Master Elodoth attorney can do more for the Pack and the Forsaken overall than a slobbering one-note, hack'n'slash Blood Talen Rahu.

Well, actually that more or less the Packs elodoth. A Storm lord Elodoth, is mostly newbies to the game or people who played first edition, so the elodoth complains his lunar gifts are shitty and there is nothing for him to do.

In part is my fault i tend to ignore the PCs human lives because i dont like the whole "secret identity, spiderman thing".

At this point i am considering just killing his PC off, he just charged in gauru agaisnt a bunch of ghouls with silver guns. He declared Down and dirty, rolled 12 dices vs 6 of the ghouls and didnt get any.

Basically the guy complains the system is shit (fair complain, it is mediocre........but thats true from all wod games) but his complains comes that forsaken doesnt have an easy mode like masquerade. He has to read and he is a lazy fuck.

So i am thinking as to make him a Irraka pre made it made by me so he can be useful and during the time skip made a Elodoth stormlord from a pack they just also almost got decimated join their pack to show him how useful it can be.

Speaking of which, what would be a good gift selection for a Elodoth Stormlord (not combat oriented, dont wanna outshine the rahu)

Fight pack. Beat pack. "Where's your locus? Lie and I'll cut your dick off." One or two lopped dicks later, you go plunder their locus and detecting lies pays for itself.

Doesnt that gift sours the packs relationship with the totem? And make you potentially loose it.

Nah, the totem just doesn't help the pack for a few days. That's why it's a panic button. Prevailing in a close fight is still worth it.

I dont know, honestly i could play a face character a lot better in apocalypse than Forsaken. In apocalypse there was an actual social structure to manipulate.

The garou veer for position in a Sept and then into tribal/Sept conflicts. Deals to breeding and exchange of power was more defined in apocalypse. It was Game of Thrones in the sense that there was this generational political structure between factions under a "nation"

Same with the judges, in apocalypse there was clear social structure. Sept alpha dominated the protectorate and while the pack were units they had to answer to the Septs and the litany was fanatically enforced so a trial by litany breaking had more weight to it.

In forsaken, each pack is an island unless they form a protectorate and even then, many of the laws (except cannibalism and masquerade breaches) has to many grey areas. And that assuming the surrounding pack would bother in enforcing the punishment.

General utility stuff is more useful than you'd think. Tools, rope, duct tape, even some spare wood can come in handy.

As for social characters in particular? I recall there being a rule for using fine quality or clothing that fits in as equipment that boosts social rolls situationally. So honestly maybe a nice suit that you can still hide weapons in.

Recommendations?

viagrandad

@happy_sad
With double-stacked Honor, your Elodoth Storm Lord should have a look at the same list I gave for Elodoth in general.

Weather's a good set for Storm Lords because only they have Weather affinity. Have him summon a thunderstorm as combat prep and immunize the pack from its effects.

Strength and Dominance will help him set enemies up for attacks by other pack members.

Stealth and Inspiration will help the pack get the first strike.

Warding will help the pack force a fight with an outmatched enemy.

These powers selected to assist the pack, not overshadow it.

@BlogWobbles
What about the humans and wolfbloods that it's NOT a secret from? Most Forsaken packs aren't just werewolves.

They are working on that. The elodoth just want to bring them all into the fold. The ithaur, which used to be my problem player because i suspect she is an autistic woman but now really got into actually playing an Ithaeur (she just without gifts, raise a small army of fire spirits to fight vampires), pulled a "it is what my character would do" bullshit and she is slowing the whole thing.

Strength and Rage are different for different auspices. The Honor facets are not the same as the Purity facets. Rage Honor is both not as interesting (oh look an NPC is still in warform) and not as suitable for your Storm Lord Elodoth, but Strength Honor is great with a pack backing it up.

That's why I indicated it would require a mage of at least middling ability.

If the pack is fighting a Thyrsus or a mage proficient in spirit, most Gifts will be useless.

Can you expand on this? 1E seems to made pack very territorial. Why would they allow other pack to enter their territory? Why not say "when shit enters out turf we kill it and take the renown, fuck off"

Even negotiations, how would that work? I am trying to figure out leverage in negotiations.

Besides the possibility of pursuing a pack into another´s territory what would a pack would need from another? What would a pack need from another to allow them to enter their territory in pursuit?

And why wouldn't they settle everything by combat? Considering that wolf regenerate like crazy, how isnt that the go to on pack-on-pack negotiations?

They could duke it out until one reaches aggravated and the be good as new in less than a week.

Because of how often Mage shields against strange effects, the book expanded on what causes a clash to pretty much be anytime something is trying to mess with a spell, or when supernatural effects are clashing.

The reason this causes a clash is because of the text in Mage itself.

You cannot become immune to supernatural stuff, just cause it to be unreliable.

Though I'm sure that changes at some high up arcana for game power levels no one actually plays. But for a normal gnosis level mage, you can't give yourself full immunity.

Reciprocity. Sacred Hunt important to all werewolves. Prey can cross pack territory borders. Access treaty means this doesn't let prey escape and doesn't immediately start fight between packs.

Leverage: join us and we won't be a threat for a month at least (Elodoth oathbinding). Don't and worry we might attack. We propose mutually beneficial things so you have as much to gain as we do. We may also offer things we can tell you or give you.

Werewolf fights are dangerous, both physically and to the Oath of the Moon. Werewolves lose control in combat all the time. While you recover from the last combat, pack is less able to hunt, and a new enemy could attack. Enemy could recover faster than you and attack while you're still weak.

Are you actually retarded?
Clash of wills is to see if you can break through
THAT IS WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT!

Immunity would be 'I just win, there isn't even a clash'.
You aren't immune, because there is a clash of wills, which has a chance of meaning your effect won't work. In which case, you aren't immune.

I get what you're trying to say. Immune unless the clash fails. But the point is that your language was previously making it sound like they would just be immune, which would imply there is no chance of getting through the spell, when a Clash is exactly that, a chance.

Stop pretending like you've read the book or know what you're talking about at all.

"Most commonly with the Practice of Shielding (••), a spell
may grant protection from forces under the Arcanum’s purview.
These spells usually provide blanket immunity to natural or
mundane phenomena, while protecting against a number of
supernatural attacks equal to the spell’s Potency. Such attacks
must win a Clash of Wills to affect the target."
p.126-127

Such attacks must win a Clash of Wills to affect the target.

As for Alchemist's Touch, it only offers immunity up to agg because you're Shielding from mundane things. Looking to other Shielding spells, Environmental Shield explicitly does not grant the caster immunity to magically influenced weather effects. Wards and Signs is expressly intended to defend against direct magic attacks, using the Potency of the spell as a Withstand rating. No outright immunity.

Fuck off.

If the combat is until the first aggravated point. Wouldnt that mean that the pack is only weakened by 1 or 2 points of aggravated for 4 or 8 days? Because they regenerate all lethal/bashing each turn in Gauru

Alchemists Touch is such a bad example to base fucking shielding spells on.

Firstly you would have to choose a particular form of "spirit/forces/whatever" and then you would be immune to the mundane harm that comes due to its intrinsic property, not the thing itself.

Its just a bad example to base other shielding spells off.

Doesn't need to be a central authority. Werewolves have cultural expectations, stemming from the Renown system and the Oath of the Moon, that often mean something very different in practice from might makes right.

Reminds me of the werewolf game I ran for some time.

The PC pack was young, and were pretty much created by them splitting away from the NPC pack in the region that was full of older woofs.

The older ones took a teaching approach. They came to the rescue when they thought something was out of control, but otherwise they made their border, told the younger pack to figure it out, and left a single guy in the young pack's territory to make sure they didn't get into trouble.

The older pack could have just raped them to death, but why do that when your true enemy is the Pure, the hosts, etc?

Because the federal government exists police force exists there is a far greater hierarchy above them. That doesn't really exist for werewolves.

Spirits are cunts to Forsaken so you aren't really getting a lot leverage there and can expect them to be unreliable at best.

Really, who is going to enforce all of this?

Mechanics and fluff question, Veeky Forums
In Vampire: the Masquerade- 20th anniversary edition, how do you characterize the physical disciplines?

It seems like splitting hairs, but fluff and crunch matter.

Does Potence increase the Cainite's physical strength, or just add to it like invisible hands? Is it an enhancement of the muscles, or simply a more perfect Vampiric condition, enabling a sort of extraordinary output of power in a mundane body? Or is it a specifically physical thing, completely independent of magic?

By the rules, you can't go beyond 5 Potence, nor can you go beyond 5 Strength. One is limited by mortal bounds with special mitigators, with a 6 or a 7 being abnormal, or explained away as having the Huge Size or making a Willpower based weightlifting roll.

You can't even go beyond 5 Strength with experience points, barring the Storyteller doing a FIAT. So even if the character engaged in mortal weight lifting, there's only so strong they could become given generational limits capping your physical stats.

In your games, is potence a straight up bonus to your Strength rating, a parallel supernatural ability, or what?

Did your woof fall on his head during the FIrst Change?

We're talking about *wizards*, not the regular human riff raff. Places like the Shadow are not scary to the Wise, and many can easily leave and enter, or have allies that can easily assist them, and all are more than capable of protecting themselves in the spirit wilds. All the woof would accomplish, if successful, which is doubtful, is really piss-off the mage and permit him the time and opportunity to exact revenge. That woof will shortly be pining for the good old days of Kinetic Shield as his screams reverberate to the outer reaches of the Shadow and beyond.

As for attacking a mage in his sanctum, WTF are you thinking? Mages are paranoid, and their sanctums are their most heavily defended resources (and often shared with the cabal!). Mages can fuck-up most non-god level threats anywhere, and you want to attack them where they have the clear home advantage and built for defense?

No, but they aren't idiots. As a rule, they're also obsessively paranoid and even the weakest among them are relatively powerful.

Mage society is based on the understanding that everyone is a walking WMD. They're regularly prepared to deal with threats from other mages. It's not "white room" thinking to acknowledge that such preparation, no less within a mage's own home, would be more than sufficient to deal with a schnauzer with delusions of grandeur.

There's a lot of interest surrounding the new game. If it has even a glimmer of the success that apology Edition games like Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition have it's going to bring enough people to justify and continue a successful General thread.

Plus do you really want to have all the newbies coming from the various video games they produce, coming to this thread and asking about Old World of Darkness and drowning out any threadbare discussion you guys do have about cofd?

Without a robust cannon there isn't even much to talk about for CofD other than white rooms. That's pretty much why it happens so much. The other option involves complicated writes up where you have to communicate things that happened in a way interesting enough to generate conversation. Much harder.

Mages are at home in the shadow

One type of mage has ANY hope of not being utterly fucking lost. No others are going to have a fun time. Mages don't belong there and have little natural defense vs sprirts that will hollow them out and wear them around like a fucking raincoat.

@TurtleCat

This is WHY nobody plays mage, by the way. The idea that you are supposed to play an obsessively paranoid coward that expends 99% of their time and effort fortifying their doomsday fortress then hiding inside it sounds like a shit game for stupid people.

More Mummy reading.
Made it through character creation and Merits:
Jesus, could they have put more of this stuff 'later in the book'. I was actually excited to read the Cult rules. But no, they are pushed back to chapter 3. I can't even finish a character because a vital merit (because most mummies have a cult) isn't even in the character creation chapter. Thanks OP!

Also, while I originally thought Sekhem was both their power stat and their resource, I see now that they actually spend pillars. Which, because of the nature of the name, is weird. But it works, whatever.

Have you actually read the Arcana? All mages are more than capable of defending themselves in the Shadow. Thrysus just take it a big step further and are a dominating force.

Your comment is as foolish as suggesting only Moros can protect themselves against ghosts or only Mastigos are competent in the Astral. That's not how it works (and without any consideration for the fact that mages are often competent in Arcana beyond their Ruling Arcana).

Hiding insider doomsday fortress
Obsessively pursue Mysteries

Pick one.

Mage sanctums are usually just the one place where mages can truly relax, experiment, etc. This is true because sanctums are carefully prepared and protected.

Under what circumstances would a woof believe that attacking a mage in his home would be a good idea, particularly as sanctums are usually shares and he'll need to contend with other mages besides his target?

Game recruitment and Chronicle listings everywhere online paints a very different picture.

To no one's surprise both versions of vampire you'll the Lion's share of games and players being run. Werewolf usually edges out the amount of Mage games by a little. And of course it is damn near impossible to find anything for the other games barring maybe Hunter.

Offline games are harder to census but still gravitate toward Vampire.

LARP is almost universally dominated by Vampire and a small but vocal minority of Werewolf players.

All this paints a picture showing that Mage is the favorite game that everybody loves to talk about but never actually play.

By rules you can go to 6 Dots in Str if you are like with 5 Str with a not-so-high gen.
Using 20th anniversary rules, you can just use your dots in presence as additional die for your strenght rolls, or by using precedent edition rules, they would be automatic successes x dot.

I would like to have the right level of knowledge of the English language so I would be able to run the most obscure oWoD/nWoD games for people online. I consider myself to be fluent, but being a ST requires a whole new level of knowledge of the language because you also need to improvise complex situations on the run. Chat play would be an option, but I don't really like it, I prefer old fashionable voice talk sadly.

My European and South American and Russian bros. You don't need to be fluent in the language or even the regional accents. Even having your accents while trying to do them is fine.

It's even more enjoyable actually because it's hilarious. Don't feel embarrassed, because it's legitimately hilarious.

Like. Imagine a Chinese or Japanese guy doing an Elvis impression. Anywhere from mangled 'English as perceived by someone that has only heard the songs and pronounces them the way the language sounds in their heads' or 'only knows how to speak the song to the tone and can't actually speak English or tell you what any of the words actually mean'

I get there's a certain degree of investment and immersion required of an ST and all but some of the best games I've ever played were done by complete nasally nerds. You don't have to paint them a lovely picture, you just need to describe what the picture contains and if the players are truly immersed, they'll make that picture themselves.

And probably giggle at some Eastern European trying to do a Clint Eastwood or Joe Pesci accent because THAT SHIT IS HILARIOUS.

I actually have a group of people and we always play all the games by voice chat using roll20 and discord/ts, it's been like this for 3-4 years by now, and we are "mostly" fine. After a bad experience I had with the group recently (I did some worldbuilding of a game with cities-states and I actually dared give them consistency, and the players called that being "dispersive" because they are accustomed to plot driven and restricted campains of short lenght, and the idea of an open world wasn't good for them, also they didn't like the system I used) I felt like my work wasn't appreciated and I wanted to try another group to ST in, but the Italian scene is quite restricted, and I feel like I'm lucky that I found this group that still stands without breaking and without having too much drama in it, considering the human filth that infests the hobby. But it's like I'm being thankful for not getting shitted on, if you know what I mean.
Just try to imagine the kind of players I will attract if I would dare to try to run a campain of a less know WoD game.
