Are you going to use other nWoD core books as well (Werewolf, Mage, etc)?

comment Are there any RPGs/settings where a character's class is not chosen but “earned” through their actions?
In WFRP (1-2e) picking/entering certain (advanced) careers requires good roleplaying (in theory), yes, but on the skill level it's your choice what skills you advance and when. Their development does not depend on the actions you take in-game, as far as I can remember.

Added note about limited starting skill set.

comment Introduce CoC d20's spell costs into DnD3.x
No problem. :) I know D&D3.x isn't especially great for low magic (even though we've played a lot of successful Ravenloft stories with the system), but experimenting, if only in thought, is always interesting. (Of course, we're more likely to play grim and dark stuff in other systems and reserve DnD for the more heroic adventures in general.) And even though I personally know the books you brought up, others stumbling across this Q may very well find your recommendations thoroughly useful. (More useful than my Q, actually. :))

comment Introduce CoC d20's spell costs into DnD3.x
Thanks, but I'm definitely not looking for a different system here. I read Heroes of Horror, but chose not to use it. The same goes for UA's sanity system. However, I've just come across Call of Cthulhu d20 (not Chaosium's standard, good old CoC!), and though I haven't become its fan (not bad, but old CoC still seems way better suited for Lovecraftian horror), I do like the spell cost stuff it introduces, especially a possible adaptation of it for a low magic, horror DnD setting such as Ravenloft (another old fav of mine.) Hence the rather specific question. Sorry. :)

@somori I may misremember RotJ, but didn't Vader throw his lightsaber after Luke in it during their last duel, causing a bit of destruction in the Emperor's throne room and Luke to fall?

@Vorac I'm glad you liked it. :) As for its darkness, "wrong" is perhaps not the best word, as it has that darkish tone. Understand it to mean "interesting and resulting in some kind of conflict (which is the base of any kind of writing, storytelling.)" :) As for pubs burning down: you're right, absolutely. But when your PCs arrive, and you're stuck in your story... that's never an ordinary evening, is it? ;D
