Sources of Magick

Sources of Magick I didn't think I needed a book on nodes and wellsprings before. Clearly I was wrong. This is an excellent in depth look at the implications and variations of these small hearts of creation, and how to impliment them into your games. It also collects rotes from previously published works along with new creations.

M20 The Rich Bastard’s Guide to Magick

Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing

M20 The Rich Bastard’s Guide to Magick This book does a good job of looking into the impact of wealth, but doesn't address as much how players might attempt to acheive it instead of what they would do if they had it. It has a number of rotes and items which are incredibly solid, but also is somewhat mixed with respect to consistency as to what wealth is and how it works on the largest scales. My views, to be fair, may be slightly unrealistic on the subject as someone whose degree and day job are in accounting. It's a very fair depiction from the perspective of being able to run a game for people who don't study the field. I like the characters introduced for potential inclusion in your games, the sample chantry, and the general considerating of the impact of being rich, or becoming rich. The various clubs and organizations are a very useful resource to play in the shadows of your world of darkness. More importantly, it reminds us to look at the ways that someone without magic can change the world as much as ...

Dark New England Regional Sourcebook
by William M.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 12/04/2021 05:29:09
Dark New England Regional Sourcebook An excellent and in depth region book with a wide range of characters that is worth the price of entry alone. This book has shed the 1st edition cringe which White Wolf worked hard to excise from their later edition products and taken a very respecful look at New England, complete with consideration for the First Nations who came before and the ramifications of vampirism predating colonists. Please, give it a read!

Paradigm Explored: Wyrd and Weft This book is an effective class in how to create a characte in detail, along with what they might actually try to do in the world. Additionally, if you need an effective NPC, you've got one.

Ascension's Landscape: Setting Refinements and Story Hooks This was an excellent look at how to combine plot decisiongs, world building, and their larger scale impacts on the behavior of a setting. A couple small choices can have large scale impacts.

First Team Dossier: Blackglass, Null & Associates
by Luke S.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 12/02/2021 12:53:11
First Team Dossier: Blackglass, Null & Associates Every single member of the team is horrific, and very dangerous. These are great! It has always bugged me that all the Pentex stuff wasn't really fleshed out, just that they were 'the bad guys'. This book puts them firmly in the "things that will terrify a whole Garou pack" territory, and I love it. it's also worth picking up 'The Star-Spangled All-American Nuclear Family', the first book in this series, for some more terrifyingly creepy bad guys for your game. Each has enoigh backstory to be able to roleplay them convincingly, and enough 'crunch' in the rules to be truly worrying for any pack that isnt 100% committed and prepared to face them. More great stuff from Clinton Boomer!...

Werewolf: The Apocalypse (Revised Edition)

Werewolf: The Apocalypse (Revised Edition) The signs are upon us The Earth Burns The waters bleed The humans unleash hunger And disease and bloodshed The breed poison and hatred The world dies Only we can see the final signs The eye of the Wyrm has opened The nation has splintered The end times are here There is nothing left but war And none left to fight but us The back of the rulebook sets the story for Werewolf: The Apocalypse perfectly! I love how, although you are a raging beast of death you are against seemingly unsurmountable odds to save the world! There is so much roleplaying potential in this game. From Roleplaying the politics game at the Sept, whether you're at your home sept, or visting another's. Maybe you're trying to talk the authorites into stepping in to deal with the illegal dumping of pollution. Maybe you decide, "screw this" and kill all the minions of they Wyrn instead. While the Vampires and Mages worry about their own problems.. "Oh, Woah is me... I'm dead" a...

M20 The Rich Bastard’s Guide to Magick

Publisher: Onyx Path Publishing

M20 The Rich Bastard’s Guide to Magick This is a book like Orphan's Survival Guide or Masters of the Art in that it outlines an area of Mage that one can infer *must* exist but that we've simply not gotten information about. The open fiction outlines the world of rich and powerful mages and the rest of the book keeps on with it. This is not a book that everyone needs, but given that you're going to have money as a consideration in your game, this supplement helps a lot of the lifting. Here's what I enjoyed: * The fiction pieces are good. They transmit flavor in a way not all books manage to * Every entry is a story idea. There's little space in this book for things like the loved but rarely focal Ionic Cloth so even though something may be listed as a Wonder it's really a plot hook. They wonderfully balance unexplored places in the Mage world with things we already know. It's entirely reasonable that Porthos made a grimoire and now we get information on it! * The book brings back some of ...

Signatures: Characters updated to V5
by Tobias B.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 11/27/2021 08:51:22
Signatures: Characters updated to V5 In my opinion, the art fits the characters like a glove and invokes the right impression of what those signature characters embody. This package is well worth the money when one is planning to include these characters in a story since none of them will leave the imagined stage without changing the course of the aforementioned story dramatically. I for my part purchased it for the inclusion of Lucita which got the expected "Oh-Shit" reaction of my players at the table. Only my printer is crying a couple of small inky tears while nibbling at all the dark / fully colored parts of the character sheet, just so he can comply with my demands. To be honest, it is not worth taking away any number of points for it and maybe it is just my love for the oldschool way of having a physical ST binder, but I would have loved a version of the character sheets without the background being fully colored....

M20 The Rich Bastard’s Guide to Magick I had forgotten that Mage books could be *fun*. So many of the books in the M20 line have been unrelenting misery porn and hopelessness (reaching the peak with Book of the Fallen) that this is just a breath of fresh air. A quick Chapter by Chapter review below: # Introduction This is really the main place where the book acts like the fun police, reminding you that money corrupts and all sorts of bad things. But...it's like 2 pages. # Chapter One: Money and the Mage The main thrust of this chapter is to describe how the various factions view money and how it influences them. It has a little scolding, but also a bunch of great ideas, like Akashayana Action Accountants. # Chapter Two: Creating Rich Characters This chapter is a little thin, mostly it's on talking about where wealth comes from and adding some new Archetypes (and how wealth impacts old ones) and new Merits and Flaws. # Chapter Three: Monetary Magick Here's where the good shit really gets going. This book c...

The Risen Just so much fun. Wraith with risen characters seems like such an obvious step. Especially NPC risen. The only element I would of liked some more connection to the Kuei-jin.

V5: Bloodlines Unbound Volume 1
by DSC T. G. C. _.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 11/22/2021 08:29:56
V5: Bloodlines Unbound Volume 1 This book gives us the basics (loresheets , discipline powers and banes) for creating characters (PCs and NPCs alike) of ten bloodlines. The loresheets are well written and seem balanced enough. The discipline powers are reworks of several powers from the exclusive discipline of the bloodlines in previous editions. The weakest part in our opinion is that some of the bloodlines just get the same bane as their parent clan instead, but even that is just a minor nitpick.

Nahema: A Malkavian Bloodline
by DSC T. G. C. _.
Publisher: White Wolf
Date Added: 11/22/2021 08:28:21
Nahema: A Malkavian Bloodline This bloodline appeared in Clanbook Nahema and this supplement presents the bloodline for play using the V5 ruleset. The book opens with a disclaimer about the seriousness of mental health and a link to a help website that is greatly appreciated. Presentation: The book is very well written, the layout follows the V5 format and the use of images adds to the themes explored by the bloodline. Lore:The history section of the supplement gives us the origins of the bloodline and their need to mingle with “normal” Malkavians and ties the bloodline to the mistery of Malakai and her relationship with Malkav as presented in previous editions of the game. Rules: The character archetypes presented are interesting as examples of typical embraces for this bloodline. The discipline power and amalgam presented look balanced and work well adapting the exclusive discipline of the bloodline to V5 discipline design. The loresheet for the bloodline is interesting, we particularly like how it gives ...
