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 Do I have an intuitive knowledge of Auras?
This is supported by the description on page 136 of V20, which states that "The Aura Colors chart offers some example ideas of common colors and the emotions they reflect that Storytellers can use."

comment Do I have an intuitive knowledge of Auras?
@Sardathrion Certainly. For one thing, color-blindness has to do with the signals that come from the retinal cones; the auras aren't being literally "seen" so much as perceived. For another, even if they were "seen," the user would just map the colors they "saw" to the emotions they understood — the only problem would be in trying to explain it to another Auspex-user who had a different color metaphor. (It's worth noting that even blind vampires can see auras, as per the description of the flaw.)

Aura Sight is found in several WoD games, not just Vampire. Broadened question to encompass the whole of the lines.

@Pureferret He did say "8-9-10." I'm pretty sure he's got the right one.

comment How much information exists about the former Prince of Chicago?
I don't have a copy handy, but the information might be in the giant World of Darkness: Chicago crossover book.
