    [NWoD] Does anyone else prefer first edition?

    Since all the new additions to the NWoD are being released for GMC/2e, I've been trying to give it another look to see if I can grok it and, once grokked, if I like it. It's... weird. When I first heard about the GMC, I thought it was just going to polish the system and work out some bugs, but...

    So, starting a God-Machine Vampire game. Anything I should know before going in?

    I mean, I get the rules and the rolls and all that. But are there mechanics that flow oddly in practice, or math that doesn't add up, or anything else I should know about? The only system I have any real experience with is Pathfinder, by the way.

    [nMage + GMC] I want to do something but I don't have enough system mastery to know how

    Hey hey everybody. I have just started playing in a new game of nMage also using the free GMC update. We are not Awakened yet - we're playing through our increasing exposure to weird magic elements as a prelude and will Awaken during play. I've got a clear direction I want to go with my...

    [Demon: the Descent] Towers of Babel

    The year is 2048. As the tides of the global economy change, money and power flow eastward into new harbors—like Dubai. The city shines like a beacon on the edge of the desert, drawing in waves of immigrants from all walks of life, from the very wealthy to the very desperate, with the promise...

    Demon: the Descent + In Nomine = ... something cool, I hope?

    I've got a hack of Demon: the Descent brewing in my brain, in which a) the God-Machine is significantly less malevolent or even legitimately good, perhaps less Demiurge and more Metatron; b) angels are a lot closer to demons in nature, despite their connection to the G-M, having more free will...

    [God-Machine Chronicle] Am I missing something about Beats?

    So I've been diving into (the KS preview of) Demon: the Descent, and had to pause and go read some of the GMC rules updates to better understand what I was reading. And frankly, I don't get the point of Beats. As near as I can tell, they're just fifths of an Experience. Have I managed to just...

    [nWoD, Mechanics Spittballing] Life paths

    The stat array thread got me thinking about how the prioritization of Physical / Mental / Social for attributes and skills doesn't really matter or make sense. My primary complaint is that it isn't a meaningful choice or informative about the character. So here's a place to spitball some...

    NWoD: Is it worth adopting the God-Machine update?

    I'm getting ready to hopefully run a World of Darkness game soon. Werewolf, specifically. It's something I've tried doing a couple times before in the past, but historically has fallen apart for one reason or another. I'm in the process of reacquainting myself with the rules and the setting...

    [nWOD/GMC] Addressing GMC Combat Concerns

    Splitting this off from the Review the GMC thread, I have a lot of issues with how the new GMC rules interact with the nWOD combat system: *Intent and therefore Beaten Down could probably use three levels instead of two. *Unarmed combat, and Brawl in general, got the shaft. It has a huge XP...

    [V:tR/Strix Chronicle] "Reap the Whirlwind" Free RPG day sample

    So I got a hold of "Reap the Whirlwind", the V:tR/Strix Chronicle playtest packet available on Free RPG day ( I got mine early because I promised to run a session for my LGS). Here are my thoughts... - Character creation section is pretty straightforward. I feel like it missed some stuff...

    [Campaign Idea] Pacific Northwestern Horror

    So after I gave it the hard sell, my RL gaming group is interested in trying out an NWoD game with The God-Machine Chronicle ruleset. I ran down the list of different options I'd been thinking about trying - Vampire, Hunter, Mummy, various flavors of vanilla mortal NWoD - and they settled on...

    [God-Machine Chronicle] We need a fluff thread

    The other thread about GMC is almost entirely devoted to the mechanics revisions, and the setting and story discussion seems to be getting drowned out. So I think we need a thread for the other half of the product. I'll start: Is it just me, or does the God-Machine remind anyone else of the the...

    Promethean: The Created, updated with GMC

    I'm going to start my Promethean chronicle back up next week (link's in the sig, if you care), and I want to update the rules to coincide with GMC. Now, I'm aware that only a few people reading this have access to the full rules, and that's fine; this thread is meant to be not only a useful way...
