Finally received my unofficial hardcopy of "The Black Hand: Playing the Sabbat" for . It's a great Storyteller's Vault entry and pairs perfectly with the official Sabbat book for V5. I especially love how seamlessly it incorporates old Paths into the preexisting Humanity framework. I may or may not be using a lot of this material for my character in an upcoming Victorian Age mini-chronicle. 😏

@vampiress Oh, definitely so! 🙂 Consoles aren't really much different from a hardware perspective at this point. The current difference seems to be one of user experience -- self hosted multiplayer servers, user made mods, and arguably better controls for many genres. Of course, even those benefits have become less and less common.

@vampiress I was a Sega kid, which fed into a similar disdain for what were less impressive Nintendo titles. But that too was supplanted once we acquired a family PC. While ostensibly to aid my father in his art, I was more quickly enamored with just how different the games were. Many indulged in that darker presentation, with titles like DooM (and eventually Diablo) being reminiscent of my favorite album covers. Add in nascent internet communities, and even Sega looked like a child's toy.

@vampiress Wow! You're surely doing stuff that is WAY above my skill level. I've never dabbled in UnrealEd, but it must be nice given how prevalent it is nowadays. 🙂

@vampiress Oh my gosh, that's so cool! I bet QuakeC would be a super fun entry point. I've barely ever poked at it myself, but coding was never my forte. The level editors are so nice nowadays! I especially like TrenchBroom. Nothing like the past struggles of Quark, QuakeEd, out even Radiant. Lol!

@vampiress Yeah, exactly! The old shooter from Id Software. (Though I've also dabbled in Quake III Arena.) It's purely hobbyist level stuff, but still a fun outlet. I'm in the process of tweaking them and putting them all up on my website. Hopefully for a future public release. :)

These new merits and flaws are just too perfect for my upcoming character — the Lasombra nun, Sister Judith. (Vienna, circa 1880 CE)

@bookofholding Thank you for the looksie! I'm so excited for everyone to get their hands on these chunky metal coins, and to try their hand at the deck of divination cards! 🚀

The previously Kickstarted "Droyne Coyns" are finally shipping out worldwide, and we just received ours! We can't wait to divine the secrets of the Ancients in our next game. Congrats to @allisonchains and crew for reaching the final stretch! Definitely looking forward to future projects from you all.

Just received my updated rulebook in the mail! Already checking out the Psionics for my Zhodani actress. Nothing moves an audience to tears quite like a telempathy backed performance. 😁
