Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Is it just me or is every White Wolf RPG game the exact same formula in both story and mechanics?

    X are <adjective> beings in a mundane world. Their powers are based on Y but using them too much causes Z. Can the X's resist the Z, while preventing the mundanes from discovering their existence, and defeat the !Xs (Xs who have succumbed to Z)?

    This is pretty much 100% true.

    I mean, I like some of their games a lot, but there's also this definite sensation of - "oh, cool, I get to be a [awesome thing]!....Oh, wait. This world is full of [awesome thing] and if I don't do what they say, they'll eat me."

    How long is it? If it's gotten long, a natural neck-line will gradually show up with which to work. So you might want to let it get longer than you ultimately want it, and then trim it back once you get how it grows and how it looks on you.

    Yeah, this is part of why I never used to GM WW games with the full exact setting.

    Like, Vampire is cooler if you hardly ever encounter the Camarilla.

    But I think that formula is more 'urban fantasy' than WW.

    This is why I never fell in love with mage. Yeah, I can warp reality but horrible things happen. If I survive the horrible things magic police show up and do other horrible stuff. Lame.

    kind of considering picking up a bunch of those meal replacement shakes

    I've been having a protein fruit smoothie that's like 800 calories and 64 grams of protein with a bunch of vitamins etc 3-5 times a week.

    It's been really good!

    Well this was a friend of mine who, while attractive, I just wanted to stay friends with. And we hooked up and she tried to play it cool, but further actions have made me believe she has "feelings" 'n shit for me.

    And I am just cold and detached to 99% of people when it comes to romantic feelings, so yeah that bomb needs to be diffused.

    But she's also crazy so I'm worried she's going to take it out in bad ways.

    Yay!
