Well, it largely depends on which version you are looking at. The two true definitions of powers are at Dark Ages: Fae (so, supposedly, it is for Vampire antagonists to benefit, not Vampire PCs) and Vampire: The Dark Ages that was later removed in the revised edition (Dark Age: Series). That said, below are the references I could find on World of Darkness ...

1) Understand the basic White Wolf rules I'm not sure how much she's actually looked at the rulebooks, so that would be my first recommendation. She probably doesn't need to read them cover to cover yet, but she should especially know the basic White Wolf "roll Attribute + Ability" mechanic and the common difficulties/number of sucesses need. It wouldn't ...

Cards signify which Art (effect) and Realm (what or whom the effect works on) the character uses. The Player plays these cards. Multiple Realms can be combined, though they cost extra Glamour. The Player has one Art card "for each dot in Arts" that she or he has. The same goes for Realm dots. The Player also has Bunk cards, in a separate deck, (see below) ...

The original mechanic for casting cantrips involved the use of collectible cantrip cards, which were available in booster packs. As for the system: Players had a hand of Art and Realm cards, corresponding to what their characters knew, and they selected the cards to use. A Bunk card was drawn at random from the Bunk deck, and if the character executed ...

Give Her the Tools to Succeed You've set yourself - and your daughter - quite a challenge! You've chosen a White Wolf oWoD game! My memory of The Dreaming is dim at best, but I think I can safely assume its about politics, intrigue, and (since it's faeries) dangerous promises and favors. She can't just sketch a map, drop in some treasures and enemies, and ...

Do as the LARPers do. (The Shining Host) The Mind's Eye Theatre book for Changeling, The Shining Host, removes the reference to stone from the first rank, replacing it with "wood." The fifth rank replaces the whole "carbon-based" bit with "Natural elements in their pure form" -- so, gold, tin, silver, iron, helium, so on -- and then goes on to the "...

The old version of Vampire: Dark Ages goes in more detail. The 1996 edition (I believe it is first edition) in page 259 explains the Fae through vampire eyes. And page 262 explains what happens when a Vampire drinks Fae blood. Drinking Faerie Blood Drinking the blood of the fae can be a chancy prospect for a vampire, though, because of its potency it ...

Based on my understanding of CtD: Chimerae, whether objects or creatures, mirror the rules associated with Changelings. While I am currently unable to provide any hard and fast citations, I would apply the rules for Prodigals seeing Changelings to Chimerae as well. As I recall most Prodigals do not inherently see Changelings as Changelings, and I believe ...

Yes, you can jump horizontally (which will, I think, always include a bit of verticalyity as well): see the description of successes you yourself have quoted. Yes, you can control it. Witness: "The number of successess determines how far the caster can leap." The RAW doesn't say "will leap", it sets a maximum distance that you can't exceed, but you can ...

It's not as though the sidhe's physical form will age accordingly — that is, unless the changeling Calls Upon the Wyrd or otherwise manifests their dream self in the real world. However, the child will begin to seem older and wiser in an eerie way. Imagine one of those movies where an adult swaps bodies with a child; that's the impression that they'll get. ...

I know of no specific citations dealing with any blanket permission/forbiddance of such a thing. So as a direct, simple answer to your question, I believe that it is "allowed" by virtue of not being specifically prohibited. But I'm not sure you're viewing this from the right perspective: 1. Allowed by whom? "Legality" is a pretty loose concept in WoD. The ...

Wraiths could do this on their own without a separate, non-Wraith "emotion controller". Although interacting with people an objects in the Skinlands (what Wraiths call the world of the living) isn't easy there are multiple Arcanoi that can do it. A circle of Wraiths who want to "loosh farm" would need to tailor their skills to the task, but it's plausible ...

It seems like the the 'flavor text' of the various Storyteller games seems to allow this as a possibility, especially in the case of Banes corrupting people, but I don't recall seeing a Charm written up with specific rules for doing it. It seems like something that would be pretty universal across Spirits but it's not in the like of common Charms, like Armor,...

Banality is defined as one of the characters Tempers. Per page 150 of the second edition rulebook: "At character genesis, you assign the character's permanent Temper rating based on her seeming and any freebie points you spend in the Trait. A character is then assumed to have a number of temporary Temper points equal to the number of permanent Temper points."...

I must say that the book is not very clear in that, at least on the spanish translation. Anyway, I understand that it can of course be lower. In fact, I haven't found a word of it starting at the same level as permanent one. In fact I haven't found a word of a what level it starts. The only reference I have found is the creation example, where again it's ...

Mage In Mage, the book of Worlds covers this: Awakaned calls the Dreaming Maya, and it is categorized as a Zone. You can see it with Spirit 1/Mind 1. You can travel it with Mind 3. The rules state than ONLY dreamspeakers can travel without the help of the Fae (or other Dreamspaker). You can read the mechanichs on page 185 (but is bassically that). Page 44 ...

Given that the changeling must spend glamour to enchant that person, it doesn't sound like a huge advantage, unless you are planning to cast several cantrips to the same target (which isn't very normal) However, I believe that's the advantage they're talking about. An enchanted person can be affected by multiple cantrips — plus, there's the case where ...

The Changeling will die, chimerically and physically Based on the second edition of Changeling: the Dreaming, this is pretty clear: in the Dreaming, everything chimerical counts as Wyrd, i.e. made physically real. Therefore chimerical damage - from chimerical objects or creatures - is also physical damage, and a Changeling killed by it dies both chimerically ...

And now you know why it's free. In Second Edition Changeling, as with many of the older World of Darkness titles, the use of Appearance is irregular and not well codified. The primary benefit is as a "permission" — if you have a 7 Appearance, the character is understood to be more compelling, more beautiful, more attractive than any human can be, and that ...

Yes, you really can. The phrase "leaps, either up and down" in this case refers to the starting and ending position: you could both jump up to a rooftop or down into a crevasse using Hopscotch. Well, your die roll controls how high and how far you jump, as per the success table, but within those guidelines, and presuming you have the right Realm for it, sure....

I've been trying to stat NPCs for a demon game I'm running. It seems to me that a demon's banality should be their torment score. Torment reflects madness and hatred but also a losing of the angelic, innocent side. Earthbound and other truly monstrous fallen have a torment of 8+ while freshly escaped demons have a torment of 3-4 and angels have torment of ...

Remember that changelings have a dual nature: one real and one chimerical. The chimerical nature is what can feed from something similar to emotions. I say similar because the emotion of the dreamer is not actually important, and many changelings do not care about what the dreamer feels. It's the creativity or the destruction of creativity what changelings ...

Wraiths in W:tO are disembodied and they do harvest some emotions. Unfortunately I don't remember much from the book (I've only read 2ed book and it was quite a time ago). One thing that I do remember is that in Infinite Tapestry book those wraiths are called Umbrood too.
