Bad Jad! As punishment you don't get to add Wits bonus to your Mental rolls anymore!

Read the last few posts on the previous page. Things should be clearer then.

But why? Such behavior is unacceptable! Maybe give him a blood cookie a la Tremere?

You want me to reward him for bad behaviour?

Jad, Amaranth works best if the target is in Torpor already.

Blood *cough* Bond *cough*...

@Jad: You don't bite members of the same Pack! Well, unless you challenged them to Monomacy...

Maybe we should all perform Vaulderie to strenghten Pack bonds...?

I prefer not to resort to such crude methods of control. Especially when there are methods to counter them and you even mention one yourself.

White Wolf released an Alpha version of V5 with another playtest scenario. I skimmed the rules and what I've noticed is that they brought back the 9 attributes, polished combat a little, did some changes to compulsions, and added a chapter on Humanity. Provided playable characters are Brujah, Gangrel, and Nosferatu and they're all anarchs.

To get it you'll need to register at https://www.worldofdarkness.com/, but alternative methods can become available if you don't want to give your name away.

There's one premade character who will be perfect for Feral. He's a Gangrel and his name is Zion.

What's your opinion on it so far? Improvement?

Yes, it does look like an improvement. I like having 9 attributes back, combat system is clearer now, compulsions seem to be a bit more sensible, and there are actual rules for humanity, though I haven't read them yet. That will have to wait for tomorrow.

I have failed to find the download. Will explore more later.

Burning Wrath as a 2 point merit. We're fucked.

EDIT: Zion...? I gave them an earful of constructive criticism last time, but this?

OK, I made a profile, but there is nothing downloadable under V5?

More detailed changes compared to the pre-alpha:

GENERAL:
 

COMBAT:
 

HUMANITY:
 

HUNGER:
 

DISCIPLINES:
 

Overall the changes look good to me, though I'm going to miss the hierarchy of sin.

It's not under V5. Click your blank avatar in the upper right corner of the screen to open a menu and select "my stream". Then click "inventory" in the page that shows up.

- If you roll two 10s on normal dice you get a critical success. If you roll a 10 on a hunger die you get a messy critical.
When you roll any sort of critical you automatically succeed on whatever you tried to do and do so quickly and effectively.

Normal dice as in a single 1d10 dice?

- Hierarchy of sin is gone. (Boo!) You lose 1 every time you embrace someone or if the ST judges you did something really evil.

Are there at least guidelines or can the ST go wild?

Dragatus wrote:
- You now start with 3 "touchstones". A touchstone is a person that keeps you human by either being a good example or a link to your past human life.

Damn it.. Touchstones is a thing from Requiem we don't need.

Dragatus wrote:
- Increasing Humanity is really hard and requires you to use no disciplines and drink no human blood for a year.

What the actual fuck..? Shocked
Presuming you can't just torpor it out, how in the ever-loving fuck are you going to manage that? You still get hungry every evening right?

Dragatus wrote:
- Alternatively you can increase Humanity by doing good things and gaining another touchstone.

/Dances in club
*+1 Humanity*

Dragatus wrote:
- You don't "rouse blood" anymore. Instead you either automatically gain hunger (for example for rising every evening) or you make a "hunger roll" which is a 1d10 roll and if you roll 1, 2, or 3 you get +1 Hunger.

Yi what the fuck writers >:V

Dragatus wrote:
- You don't roll for compulsions anymore, instead they have 5 ranks of severity and you get one that ST chooses and that has a rank equal to your hunger.

Don't you dare fuck that lady though, Mr. Torrie, or your efforts to gain humanity by not feeding for a year goes down the drain. And if you happen to be the kind to rely a lot on your fancy supernatural powers when a compulsion hit then God cannot help you.
Welp not terribly happy about some of these changes I have to say. Other things a tad moreso. I'll also add for the record that I won't be joining future chronicles, don't have the time and dislike voice chat.
