There are several crossovers, but note... As it is, yes, there are ways to mix "templates", but these are very restricted. (Please note that I am mostly interred in the 20th Anniversary editions) For Garou, there are very few options. One is an Abomination. If a vampire is sick (or insane) enough to try to Embrace a werewolf, the Garou must roll their ...

This book gives a basic summary of the conflict. Demon The fallen, Storyteller's Companion page 68-69 Demon and the kindred are competitors for the same prize, mankind and all it has to offer. Both groups are highly territorial, prideful and more than willing to resort to violence if threatened. ... So far, any attempts at détente between a kindred and a ...

Outside of particularly proscribed limits, no. The drive to mix-and-match has always been pretty strong, so many of the signature abilities are restricted to a given character type. (To use Spheres, you need an Awakened avatar, for example.) In cases where crossover is possible — the abomination, which is an Embraced Garou, or the Ghoul Mage — there's a ...

While I haven't seen this translation guide, I can safely assume it follows other guides between oWoD and nWoD - which is changing old splat into new splat, not into new kind of splat. So when you use this guide, you combine both D:tF and D:tD creatures into exactly same thing, so you won't have two kinds of creatures (one opposing Abrahamic God, one ...

If we go by the wordings then I would say: "No". There are two ways in which a demon can collect Faith from a mortal. Faith can be reaped from a human by forcing him to acknowledge the existence of the demon deep within his soul. A willing mortal can also offer Faith in return for promises of wealth, influence or power. on page 249 of the demon ...

No. As per the Demon Storytellers Companion (p.69): Because of their undead nature, vampires cannot benefit from pacts of Faith, nor can they be possessed by a demon. A mortal who is bound to a vampire can be enthralled by a demon (and vice versa!), however, and she may be possessed like any other human if her Willpower is low enough. The latter part ...

Going to go point by point: Torment is specific to Demon the Fallen and has no similarty to Demon the Descent. The closest similarity is Integrity. See the Torment section in the Demon Translation Guide p7-8. There's no link between Torment and Cover. Cover is specific to Demon the Descent and represents a fake identity used by the demon to move unseen ...

That's Kupala. Also called "Root of All," to make this answer long enough to post.

Yes. In addition to the options that other posters have mentioned (e.g. abominations, ghoul mages, fomor vampires, etc), there’s also one possibility that hasn’t been mentioned: Mages can use their Sphere magic to emulate the powers of other splats. For instance, if the ritual that House Tremere used hadn’t been sabotaged, they would have likely gained a ...

There is no mechanical ruling on how many thralls demon may have. Though on p. 155 followers are described as Followers are servants, worshippers or even loyal hirelings working for you. They’re people willing to devote a substantial amount of their time (perhaps even all of it) to taking care of various tasks for you. A demon’s followers are often (but not ...

It's up to you The translation guides are, at their core, home-brew suggestions. You, the ST, have to fill in a lot of blanks to make that kind of game work, mostly in the fluff. It is intentionally left up to you if Aetheric Resonance, et. al. works on the Fallen or not. It is impossible for me to say 'yes or no', but only can tell you that you are ...

Blood Tempering Find an Assamite buddy who'll perform (or teach) this Combination Discipline power (Quietus ••••, Fortitude ••). It originates in the Dark Ages (Libellus Sanguinis III 67, DA20 248) and imbues an object with soak dice equal to the user's Stamina + Fortitude and increases the damage rating of weapons by 1.

One belief extant in the World of Darkness community is that the Heralds are the August Personage of Jade (from Kindred of the East) or perhaps their ministers. The central evidence for this belief is that the same story is told in both books. Hunter: The Reckoning Storytellers Companion (in a section called The Great Cycle, pg.7-8) describes the origins of ...

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 ...

From Demon: the Fallen, page 37: Understand that fully a third of the Heavenly Host had fallen by Lucifer's side. We numbered thirty million, three hundred thousand and thirty. And of our number, only two — Amiel and Ank-Rhuhi — failed in their courage and returned for punishment. Assuming that "fully a third" is an exact number, its ninety million ...

No, you can't Just like in other oWoD games that have permanent vs spendable pool resource (Willpower, Rage, Gnosis etc), you can't have temporary more Faith than your limit without spending Experience Points to increase this limit. Please compare to other traits that can move up and down above the initial value such as V:tM Humanity and Blood Points - on ...

Ask your ST if you can adapt mortal Linear Sorcery into a Thaumaturgy Path. In the book Sorceror Revised, there are a number of different Paths for mortal Linear Sorcerors; effectively, they're the mortal equivalent of vampire Thaumaturgy. As such, it might be plausible for a vampire who learns one to develop it into a form of vampire Thaumaturgy. In ...

It is hard to prove a negative, but to the best of my knowledge the answer is it was left vague at all times. I have played both of those game lines and I don't recall anything that explicitly discussed possible connections between those lines. This is not at all surprising since Classic World of Darkness was always very comfortable leaving a lot of things ...

Well, if you don't want to go as far as Sam Haight, but still want some cheese... Abominations, as laid out in @David Kane's answer, are a thing. In 1st edition, a Kinfolk mage could use the Skin Dancer ritual to become a full-fledged werewolf (at the cost of some Corruption) while remaining a mage. That loophole was later closed. Mages and werewolves both ...

There are quite the differences between DtF and DtD for Aura of Vitality. Demon the Fallen The Aura of Vitality is triggered by entering Apocalyptic Form (such as Dagan, The Visage of Awakening), which generally lasts until the scene ends (or sooner if the player so decides). The aura targets all living beings within Faith yards (if you have 4 Faith, then ...

Can the Unchained detect the Fallen via Aetheric Resonance? Answer: No Page 184 of the Demon: The Descent book describes Aetheric Resonance as follows: By expending a single point of Aether a demon can feel out Aether in the area around her for the remainder of the scene. Whenever a source of aetheric energy comes within the radius of her aetheric ...
