Ask a simple question...

A few days ago, I posted in roleplayers, asking how to integrate a number of new characters into the CtD/WtA game I'm currently running. I got a response from someone who said that one character (the Silent Strider) would slaughter another (the Unseelie sluagh), and then imprison a second (the Seelie sluagh) -- supposedly, because sluagh are "Wyrm-y" and Unseelie are evil. Another poster said that things looked "pretty fucked." I responded to that by saying that, since I've been running this game for more than half a year and my players and I have been having a marvelous time with it, that I must be "fucked" in a good sense. :) (my exact words were, "in the sense of the warm, yummy afterglow," with thanks to lostsatyr).

Yes, so maybe the above reaction would be the canon one for a werewolf. I don't care. Of course, one of my not-so-guilty pleasures as a GM has been to cheerfully toss out bits of canon that don't fit in my games. And, before the canon mavens start squawking, I'm going to point to a little something in all of White Wolf's games called "The Golden Rule." So it's even sanctioned by the company itself. :)

Next time I'm going to keep my mouth shut about what system I'm running, and keep my question as generic as possible. Seems less controversial that way.

Actually, given that Striders deal with the spirits of the dead, etc., I don't think they'd see Sluagh as Wyrmy by default. Not all that is Wyld is pretty, after all - nightmares aren't inherently Wyrmy. Some of the things 'roo do as a matter of course fit that description nicely.
