    So, I wrote this! It's a new compact, fully usable, inspired by my work in an insurance firm's staff counsel office. The SRO, or Strange Resource Office, is a semiautonomous subdivision of Copeland Mutual, an insurance firm. Copeland was founded in the late 1930s by Morris Copeland, an art...

    [cWoD/CofD] Three Questions any Orpheus Conversion Needs to Answer

    Orpheus is one of my favorite splats, but I've wanted to run it in Chronicles of Darkness. There's been half-complete attempts at converting it to CofD back when the game line was still in its first edition rules, but no more recent attempts. I've been toying with converting it, but here's some...

    [Hunter: the Vigil] Cradle of Darkness by the Shark Bone Podcast

    Over this past summer break, I put together a Hunter game and ran it for members of a few of the podcasts who are part of The RPG Academy Network or network adjacent.

    This note was attached to a brown box, left by a nondescript post office with an odd stamping system. On the box is three stickers with a space left for the stamp, each one covering a different piece of an address. Despite the fact it had a perfectly mundane and normal street address on the...

    Beast's Hunter: The Vigil Supplementary Material - What Do You Want To See?

    For those of you following the Beast: The Primordial Kickstarter, we just hit a stretch goal for a Hunter: The Vigil expansion ala Mortal Remains. Specifically, one dealing with Beasts.

    Sell me/unsell me on Hunter: The Vigil.

    On a recent sale I got some random stuff really cheap. Now, I knew of the existence of the games, but I had neither played them, nor perused them, nor read them. So now I find myself with the sturdy hardcover rulebook of Hunter: The Vigil. What is there to know? What edition is the game on (I...

    [Demon: the Descent/Hunter: the Vigil] Heirs of Hell and the Lucifuge

    So, I've been considering this tonight, and I was thinking about how one would integrate the Lucifuge (both the person and the conspiracy) into Descent, from Descent's perspective. In Hunter, the Lucifuge just approach themselves as the progeny of demons and of Lucifer/Satan, and their powers...

    [H:tV] Endowment-less Conspiracies

    So, kind of a weird question, but I'm considering doing a much more grounded Vigil game, where the conspiracies exist but are still ultimately just mortal men and women against the darkness. The predicament is the little perks that come with Status in a conspiracy is, at dot one, always gaining...

    [Hunter: the Reckoning] Reckoning or Vigil for "Monster of the Week" Campaign

    I'm planning to run a Hunter game, but I don't know whether I'd be better off using Hunter: the Reckoning (HtR) or Hunter: the Vigil (HtV). I would appreciate some insight into HtR.

    I want to run a “Monster of the Week” campaign, but I have five concerns I'd like some advice on.

    [OWOD/NWOD Hybrid] Inserting Hunter: The Reckoning into Hunter: The Vigil

    Hey guys, I mentioned in the Hunter: The Reckoning thread that I really liked H:TR and found there's a lot of animosity between it, the HH folk, and the H:TV folk. Which is ironic because it occurs to me there's no reason I can't have my cake and a slice of pie. So here's the premise I've been...

    Hunter: The Vigil with Unknown Armies: Will It Work?

    So, I wanted to run Unknown Amries for a new group - but between a combination of me being unable to sell it, the setting being mired in the 90's, and general "meh" feelings all round, we decided to play Hunter instead. However, one of the players expressed a distaste for the system, and...

    [New World of Darkness] The Dirge of Mercy Belle (Recruitment)

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this sort of thing (and if it's the wrong one, let me know before I get banned x.x), but I guess it can't hurt to try. Er herm... Me and a few friends (well, a couple. One of them recently got very ill and can't attend quite yet) decided that we...
