Subject: Discussion Topic/Thoughts on other WoD Gamelines Thu Jul 31, 2014 1:42 am
I'm sorry about this topic because this is mostly a VtM oriented Forum, but I wanted to ask, if to spark some more discussion, but what is your favorite other WoD gameline? Favorite subsplat of that (Werewolf Tribes, Mage Traditions) or other things? Is there any reasons for doing so? This extends to the nWoD gamelines and even fanmade games of both.
For reference, there's some boxes underneath the main text of both. One box of official games and the second on fan made ones.

Now I finally know how to use the Totems of Borherhood and the Hunt. I was already wondering how to activate those bloody things.
Anyway, I'm most familiar with Vampire, but Mage seems to be pretty cool too. It's extremeyl flexible in the kinds of characters you can portray. From Hairry Potter style wizards to pseudo super saiyans to something along the lines of Iron Man, Mage can do it all.

Maybe I haven't read much into it, but Kindred of the East would be something I might be interested in, if only for the severely adverse reaction that Bloodlines gives to the Kuei-Jinn, or rather to players about them(at least if read into what is being said about you, as Kindred). I can imagine every single one of Ming's lines dripping with poison, or other unspeakable caustic horrors, although any would cause varying levels of discomfort, perhaps even to the point of being painful, just listening to one like her.

played a mummy chronicle for three weeks. Most of us decided it would be better if they had just slapped an Egyptian skin on Mage, and that was that. NWoD Hunter is actually a really good game. Just keep the new versions of SoL out of it.

Vampire: The Requiem (especially Blood and Smoke: The Strix Chronicle) Dark Ages: Fae Changeling: The Lost (needs a little tweaking) Vampire: Requiem for Rome Geist: The Sin-Eaters World of Darkness (new and the God Machine Chronicle)
Mage: The Awakening Wraith: The Oblivion (the setting is a bit over-done, in typical oWoD fashion)
Mage: The Ascension
Vampire: The Masquerade/Dark Ages: Vampire (great flavour and fluff; too set in stone (lore) and too shoe-horned into certain playstyle by flavour/too apocalyptic) Kindred of the East/Blood and Silk (great idea, executed poorly/train wreck of East Asian cultures) Changeling: The Dreaming (good ideas, executed poorly) Land of Eight Million Dreams (good ideas, executed poorly/train wreck of East Asian cultures)
