    >So let me get this straight. You're a scorned mockery of humanity, most likely abandoned by your creator, left to fend for yourself in this cruel world. You're perpetually dazed and confused, always trying to pick up the ways of humans, but that's not happening because you have a disquieting aura that makes every sentient being in the world eventually hate you, so you can never make real friends and have to live as a nomad. Oh, and it's not just humans that hate you, not just animals, not just the earth which becomes a desolate wasteland because of you, it's the entire fucking universe that's out to get you, with angels from heaven and evil entities hunting you down and trying to eradicate your unwanted existence. Your final goal is to become a real human, losing all those cool powers which you just so happened to have, at which point you'll probably forget everything and start hating other Prometheans too...

    Then again, some Prometheans claim that the Zeky don't even exist at all, and any who claim otherwise were merely imagining it.

    Worthless are the men who squabble, who throw their lives away over petty goods and baubles.

    Pitiful are those that squander their short, miserable existence, and ruin their minds and bodies with vile substances.

    And yet, how we so wish to be them. To become them. Even a life filled with those things would be preferable, for then at least somewhere we are accepted. To know light and laughter and love and hate and sorrow, all mixed together into a bubbling pot of humanity.

    Will I become such? I hardly care anymore. I persevere, I exist, but for what end? What reason? So that another could enjoy it. My own suffering, to lose his. Abominable. Horrible.

    But it is something I, too, must do, in the end. I wonder, will that one hate me just as venomously as I do my own creator?

    I've heard one splatbook has rules for Prommies made out of "alternative" materials, such as stone or metal. Which book is this? Because if it's for real, I am totally looking into a Zeka made out of iron or steel, a radioactive Iron Man of the atom.

    So you mean I can't be a Zeka carved out of pure depleted uranium, because the Unfleshed and Zeka are different lineages? Oh, wait... I think I found a reference to something else:

    >They can be considered an expansion of the "Constructs", otherwise ordinary Prometheans created from or incorporating inorganic matter (such as a Galateid actually carved from stone), detailed in the Magnum Opus source book.

    I think I'll need to download both Magnum Opus and Saturnine Night.

    Their Disquiet is fine. Their Wasteland... eventually, eventually, makes an area mildly radioactive. By the time another kind of Promethean has caused all electrical lines and radios in the area to be completely jammed, etc., people who remain in the Zeky's wasteland will get mildly ill and should probably leave. But by that time, any other Promethean has left the area utterly unlivable anyway.

    Really? I could've sworn it worked differently for Zeky than for the other Lineages. Then again, I just kinda skimmed over that section of the book, since the idea of making what basically was a walking nuke didn't sound too useful unless it was as the villain of a campaign I was making as an ST - which I definitely am not.

    Yep, and it only starts irradiating the area after like the 2nd or 3rd stage of Wasteland. Considering you can easily delay Wasteland effects for 4-6 months, and considering it only takes 1 month/Azoth to reset the timer... if a Promethean of any sort, Zeka included, just can stand moving between two houses regularly, he's never gonna have to worry about Wastelands.
    >> Miranda 01/25/09(Sun)23:22 No.3520743

    I knew about the moving, but, like I said, I thought the Zeky followed different rules. No big deal, I never planned on using them anyway... they're as rare among Prometheans as regular Prometheans are among mortals - after all, getting hold of nuclear materials to create one is bloody-near impossible.

    I've had this Promethean design for a while. He's an Unfleshed named Mack, built from a guy who died in a horrible vehicle accident and the truck he was crushed in. His legs have pistons; his whole right side was rebuilt with a muffler, verticle exhaust pipes, and a couple sets of breaks for a hand that can at least clutch something. His breath smells like gasoline and the left side of his was replaced by meters (odometer, speedometer, fuel gauge).

    >> Miranda 01/25/09(Sun)23:51 No.3521019
    Unless I'm mistaken, Mack would be a Construct, not a Unfleshed... Constructs are Prometheans with some pieces inorganic (like a Galatean partly formed from carved marble), while Unfleshed are just that - wholly inorganic, basically the Promethean version of androids.
    >> Anonymous 01/25/09(Sun)23:56 No.3521058

    Nah, both Unfleshed and Constructs are supposed to both be wholly inorganic. That being said, there's no reason one can't be a mixture of both... the significant detail is that Unfleshed are their own lineages, while Constructs are based off existing lineages and generally lack a blatantly technological feel. Also, Constructs don't receive Azoth illusions to disguise their appearance, etc.
    >> Miranda 01/25/09(Sun)23:59 No.3521083

    - Don't regain Pyros every day
    - Lack Azoth disguises (isn't explained whether this causes HUEG DISQUIET)
    - Can boost Str, Sta, or Dex, instead of skills, with the past memory merit thing but it causes derangement effect automatically instead of only if depleted
    - Otherwise treated as member of another Lineage


    Don't sweat it too much, though I'd personally place him as a Frankenstein (they incorporate organic and inorganic matter), the rules for determining which is what is supposed to be flexible.
    >> Miranda 01/26/09(Mon)00:13 No.3521212
    Agreed; Mack sounds more like a Frankenstein, though if you play him as such, you might wanna discuss it with your ST to be sure - normally the Lineage is crafted from sewing together the parts off a minimum of three bodies... but I don't see why your ST wouldn't let you fudge things a bit and allow Mack to instead be crafted from one man and one machine instead.

    My own Unfleshed was one made from a firestorm. She is basically a human form that was created with the melted plastic of various toys, etc. in a garbage dump. Especially dolls.

    As such she is obsessed with finding humanity through what it idolizes, she has taken the view of idolizing beauty. So she actually carves her plastic form with a carving knife to become the "ideal woman". It was fun when she used Transmutations since all the toys inside her that had electrical components would light up, move, make noises, etc. so very creepy.

    She ended up getting melted just like how she was made in a firestorm.

    On 4/5/09, subject #88 was confronted and captured by field agents. Subject #88 was in the process of leaving its den, which it had apparently set ablaze. Despite the superior advantage in terms of firepower and number, several agents were killed in the process of subduing the subject. Shortly thereafter, a DPT was called in. Directive 53 was in full effect, and we are happy to report than no civilians witnessed the encounter.

    Subject #88 has been shipped to Cell #3442-WSM, for containment and dissection. Given the incredible fortitude of subject #88, and past research with creatures of similar design, we are certain that there will be much to learn from a fine specimen.

    I suppose. But, when you think about it, Promethean is sort of the reverse of the other settings...

    In Werewolf, Vampire, Mage, etc., it's all about NOT being human, and about revelling in the supernatural differences between you and "mere mortals".

    But in Promethean, it's about you striving to BECOME human, despite all the flaws and weaknesses and imperfections they have compared to your current self.

    Galateids, at first, do not inspire hatred with their disquiet. In fact, it's quite the opposite. If you're affected by one, you start to obsess over her. You can't stop thinking about her.

    Well. People don't HATE them, specifically; they have a tendency to become jealous of the Galateid, either through their physical beauty or skill. And jealousy so easily leads into hate...

    Galateid's have the desire to really fit in, to socialize and make friends, lovers, whathaveyou. But they don't quite have that spark, that little bit of humanity that can make others relate to them, which often leads to many a failed attempt at such. They continue doing so, time and again, because they can't HELP it. They want to be the star, the one you love, your best friend and sibling-you-never-had.

    I didn't like the Galateid at first; they came off as the atypical "pretty princess" faction of Promethean, that WW just seems to love shoehorning into every product. But once I really gave them a read, and got my head in the mindset, they became my second favorite. You can make something truly tragic and inspiring with a Galateid, if you put in the effort.

    I got a friend of mine to play one, since I knew that it was her natural nature to try and fit in and make friends with everyone. So to have her be trying that in-game but to have such uncontrollable forces (her being a Promethean) working against it, really, really helped with making the character come alive and motivated her to get the character to become human much more.
    >> Miranda 01/26/09(Mon)02:52 No.3522328
    The Galateids also, due to their nature, tend to be rather, well, shallow, taking things at face-value, which can work against them sometimes, as that attitude (coupled with the fact many of their Lineage follow the Aurum refinement to learn-by-imitating about Humanity, tends to make them a bit naieve and too easily trusting in people - not a wise thing in the dangerous and deceptive World of Darkness.

    Well, aside of the fact the Promethens all need some sort of "binding" to connect them together (that being that electricity heals them), it would be remarkably unbalanced if they used their individual elemental alignments instead.

    Galateids would be invincible, if they used contact with air to heal - how often do people fight in a vacuum? Ditto for Tammuz, and touching the Earth - just walk around barefoot like Toph.

    A sticker would also be acceptable.

    Tangently related: I've had a tattoo idea on the backburner for a year now. Stitches, as life-like as I can afford along my body, with the possibility of patches colored differently than regular skin. Starting with the wrists, because I'm a madman.


    That wouldn't really work with some of them. Galatein in particular; air is plentiful, so healing wouldn't even be an ISSUE with them if that were the case.

    Well, obviously, it'd be something more complex than earth or air for Tammuz and Galateid... it wouldn't be unbalancing, but it'd render them a tad unplayable. See, when being healed by elec/radiation, your Disfigurements show, causing Disquiet rolls each round.

    For Tammuz though, I'd have it just be something like re-writing the Word of God on their forehead or such. Could be as simple as using a marker, though its easier to have an ally do it. The Golem's disfigurements show, the word glows, then both vanish and he's healed.

    Seems easier in some ways than electrical healing... but a Frankenstein in a car can just modify it so it zaps him all the time, or have a car battery in his backpack, etc.

    Yes, but, like you said, being healed in that manner forces Disfigurements to show, so few would be willing to do such a thing, regardless of convenience... besides, Prometheans heal rapidly from electricity, so much of it would be wasted as "overload"... and no matter what lineage you are, absorbing more electricity than you need to heal is in fact damaging in itself, not to mention quite painful.

    Well, I'm kinda certain it would be painful, being a fucking ELECTRIC SHOCK coursing through your body, but if you wanna refluff it as being pleasurable, that's your call, I don't recall offhand it specifying it had to be painful unless it was a huge jolt all at once beyond what you needed to heal-to-full - that I do recall them saying was painful and even dealt a point or two of Fire damage due to electrical burns and such, and only time could heal those kind of burns.

    Oh come on, you know it didn't say anything like that. Hell, zeky, who don't use electricity for healing at all, can't be harmed by natural electricity whatsoever. Its not really a refluffing, since there's no fluff to begin with describing how it feels to get zapped.

    He might not have to deal with Disquiet, but staying for too long in one place is undesirable due to the Wasteland effect. So you've got yourself a nomadic Prommie wandering the country with his trusty laptop, with WiFi, of course, by his side.

    Promethean did a great job of bringing a lot of concepts together.

    They work better then any other archetype for exploring the world and kicking ass. Others sit around their cities and take orders. If Promies hear about something weird they can just go check it to learn something, they are more adventurer like then others. They are good in combat and are great for being something that no one has heard of that appears and lays down the law.

    Exactly. And they're pretty-much perfect for large campaigns, since they're so nomadic.

    Most other settings (Vampire, especially old Vampire, was infamous for it) basically limited you to a single city, because that's where your higher-up's seat of power was. Prometheans have no ruling heirarchy beyond being a Throng, so you and your friends could literally go cross-country if you had enough reason or desire to do it, and still be just as good there as anywhere else.

    Mages technically don't need to study books for their magic. Hell, you can have a mage with Occult 0 and he'll be as competent at casting spells as a mage with Occult 5; just don't expect him to be able to scrutinize spell resonance or use Occult-based rotes though.

    ive noticed that even the most feverish supporters of the oWoD enjoy promethean i havent exactly figured out why.

    In the two games i have been part of that tried to combine oWoD + nWoD promethean was the only one taken completely from nWoD (mummy and risen were not in anyway incorporated even with what seems to be a reasonable amount of respect for mummy)

    Probably 'cuz it's the only "true" original NWoD one.

    Or because they can't deal with new takes on the same concepts. A little insecurity, maybe?

    Not sure why, but I put a Ravnos artifact in my V:tM game that amounted to a deck of many things. One of the cards is a card that essentially gives the character that drew it a quest to created a Promethean.

    BTW, to everyone telling me it would lead to nothing but ruin; the players are loving the shit out of it, because of all of the random-ass temporary effects and story plot cards in it. One vamp got turned mortal for almost the whole session, another got his ass saved by a Demon and now is probably going to owe it something big, and another got the Promethean card.

    It's cool, just giving you an idea since you do enjoy drawing Prometheans a lot.

    By the way, I see the Miranda namefag a lot, but Mary and Jim disappeared, eh? Did you guys finally get an IRC going or something?

    Stupid question.

    Do you need the basic nWoD book to run Promethian?

    Only ever played oWoD so I don't know. However this book seems pretty good...

    You do.

    Every nWoD product needs the main book. All character creation rules can be found there; the other books act as templates. So, to make a werewolf, you make a basic mortal and then add 'werewolf bonuses' onto it.

    And no, you can't stack them. Or, at least, no sane ST would let you.

    Why would you NEED to stack anything with Mage? Mages can already do everything and render the other splats obsolete.

    It'd be like saying a Gestalt Fighter/Wizard in 3E would be appreciably more game breaking than a singleclass Wizard.

    About the closest you'll ever be able to come to "stacking" Promethean with anything is having your character reach their New Dawn, thus becoming an ordinary Mortal, then applying a Vampire or Mage or what-have-you template to their mortal self. But there is no way to turn a Promethean directly into another type of denizen of the World of Darkness.

    That's one good thing about the various setting being largely self-contained. while you could minmax a character from one particular setting, odds are a character from a different one could still kick your ass anyway. Checks-and-balances.

    Well, Vampires and Werewolves suck pretty much no matter how you slice it. For vampires it makes sense since they can has POPULATION EXPLOSION and they're glorified zombies, but werewolves can't bite people to increase their number, so they're just crappy.

    I'm doing a bit of copypasta from the official forums here, simply because it's such a brilliant idea...

    >I thought perhaps there was a throng that was just tired of wandering and wanted to just settle down for a while some place where they wouldn't have to worry about making the land barren. They found a place that was already so damaged they couldn't even make it any worse. A ghost town that had a Wound in the Shadow realm.
    From time to time people get lost and take a wrong turn on the interstate and accidentally wind up at the town. Even when the Prometheans hide themselves, the lost strangers seem to wind up going mad and killing themselves. It doesn't happen often but when it does it provides bodies for the throng to create progeny with.
    Over the years the throng gradually grew and they got so used to living in their town that they feared ever leaving.
