Let's get those last two Truths done, eh?

Getting a char-gen post up shortly.  Will update with link when done.

Update!

OOC is here.  ALL conversations go in OOC, please.

Char-gen and Cast Thread is here.  Please just post your characters here when you're done with them.  I may add a Rules summary at the bottom after we're all settled.

OK, here's my fact:

The mutagenic atmosphere is caused by a byproduct of deep, organic pits, which no one has survived exploring.

I'm detecting a trend, here.  So odds are I'll have to polish the Ork rules from Houses just so you can have some beasties to hunt.   >:)

Lol, I wasn't expecting it to go that way :P Do you think it would be worth doing a number of facts statements, one for the enviroment. One for the area the characters are living in an one describing the master. This could be done during character gen/during the start of IC. thoughts?

Do I have to build on the previous truths or can I throw in the hat another concept?
If the latter.

Truth: unlike others, we do believe in gods

I hope that's appropriate

You don't need to follow the established pattern.

However...you are aware, I hope, that the Sith IS a spiritual tradition?  And that any sufficiently impressive Dark Side spirit would qualify as a 'god'.

I can see the spiritualism, but, in my opinion, it is different from a religion.
In the Star Wars universe the majority of people and cultures seems to be atheistic or agnostic.
I was trying to add an odd feature to set our Clan apart from the mainstream culture, letting us have cults and rites.
If that is not going to work I can change the truth. Just let me know.

Your assumptions are open to question, but this is not the place for such a discussion--my question ought have been clarified thusly:

Your proposed truth seems the equivalent of saying "given that we're playing drow, we're clever, sadistic, and prone to intrigue".  If what you mean is "we're considered clever, sadistic, and prone to intrigue by other drow..."  (ie other Drow thing we go to eleven), then there's no problem.  If not, you're simply repeating the obvious.

Let's just change it.

Truth: We never ask for discounts.

I thought the first was okay, just interpreted as "We have a system of cults and priests to worship the dark side, rather than simply worshiping it as people wish, as is the case in most of the Sith empire." was that what you were going for Flaming?

Right--nothing wrong with that: that's the 'we go to eleven' part.   :-)

Use the one you like the most or make up another. I don't want to hold back the game. I never played this rpg so I might be getting the wrong idea of what the truth should be look like. Treat me as the Noob of the party : )

We're all noobs, more or less.  RD and I both have Houses of the Blooded, and I was in a shortlived B&H game on another forum...but that's about it.  Oh, and Lanzlo is one of my tabletop group and indirectly responsible for this idea, but he's never played this either.

Oh sure, blame me. :P

Just remember, I know where you live, and I know the name of your cat. (Not that she'll have anything to do with me. She'll probably just claw the crap out of me. In fact, I may just leave her alone...)

Exactly--she knows the taste and scent of your blood, man.  Best leave that little hellion alone.   :-)

Game is officially launched, so I'm locking the thread.
