I've been involved in one aspect or another of the adventure games hobby for the past twenty-five years. Started playing in 1987. (First game? Champions, followed by CyberSpace, the Iron Crown cyberpunk game for Space Master, their sci-fi Rolemaster spin-off.) Was hired by InQuest Magazine in 1996, where I started my editorial career. Since then, I've done work for Green Ronin, Malhavoc Press, Dream Pod 9, and White Wolf. I managed two different game stores in the metro Boston area in the 2000s, and am now working primarily freelance. Still gaming after all these years.

I have a weakness for good coffee and bad puns.

comment Balancing a mixed game in nWoD
@xenoterracide Not very much. Those Tiers represent the scope of their power, not the magnitude. The top end of their ability is already taken into account.

comment How is a tranquilizer gun used?
@SevenSidedDie See, this is why I argued for an [nwod-mortals] tag to accompany questions like these. :)

comment How exactly is human ignorance maintained in the nWoD?
@BrianS Neither the NWO nor the Technocracy are in nWoD. However, Division Six from Witch Finders serves a similar role. :)

comment vamp battle vs mage, werewolf, changeling in WoD
Welcome to the site! Unfortunately, I think this question is unanswerable as written. Aside from being almost entirely based on opinion, the capabilities of a random supernatural can vary so widely that without details, there's nothing we can do but speculate. If you feel like giving more information about the characters involved, it might help. (Plus, are you mixing the two games? That is, oWoD and nWoD? Tagging with both indicates so, and that adds even more confusion to the case.)

comment What is this “black mist” in Demon?
This is probably an instance of the Hunters confusing the source of a supernatural threat. It sounds like one of the Hosts or Magath from Werewolf.

Sounds like an Exalted/Scion thing.
