The Secret History / Re: Horrors
« Last post by Osentalka on (17:02:09/01-14-18) »
It's odd, some of the elements used in the Elder God section were definitely associated with the Horrors in previous editions. Gum Toads and Crawlers were servants of Mr Darke in Harlequins back, who was an agent of the Horrors. However other things like Gaf from the Book of Gaf where not. Gaf was a Free Spirit who could be worshipped by human mages like the Aleph Society, I think from Threats 2. Gaf is a powerful being from our own set of metaplanes, not outside them like the Horrors are.

The way I interpreted it was this. The Horrors are still stuck outside our set of metaplanes and are inimical to metahuman life, a DM can use them if they want but should remember they won't be fully present in our metaplanes until the next Scourge at the height of the Sixth world in a couple of thousand years time. However there are other beings from our own set of Metaplanes who can be worshipped, make deals with human mages and are nearly as tricky and dangerous as Horrors but are already here.

I don't know, some of that section confuses me. I've no idea how the experiment of feeding ghouls with ghouls is supposed to relate to the rest of it..

Well, I was more thinking abour using to for assisted climbing to scale a cliff or something, with an adept with light body, or maybe a spirits movement power.

Nothing wrong with a house rule if you feel it would.

Admittedly, I look at things a bit differently, but that is just my life experience getting in the way :P

And sadly the books leave a lot open for judgement, so I say feel free to do what you feel is best for your table.

I admit I got a Lovecraftian feeling instead of being Horrorfied when I read about the Elder Gods.
It would of course be grand if they reestablished the link between the two settings, at least on loose terms

I house ruled them at my table to be -2 to get in line with the rest of the arsenal.

...

Of course I also made all SMGs ap -1 to make them worth picking up. But that’s a different story

I'm also not a PbP player, so I can't attest to that part.

I used to use dumpshock more, and I've paid closer attention to the other sources more recently with the outtages. But I feel like these forums are still more active than the dumpshock forums...

For PbP it is clearly showstopper, however I do not read those parts of the forum, so my feeling does not even take them into account....

Haven't yet looked at it, but I'm guessing yes. Various freelancers have stated that they rather not use the descriptor "horror" because it's an Earthdawn term that was never really (or at all?) established in Shadowrun. But we should keep in mind the connection is really old. Using "elder gods" instead of the established "the enemy" may also indicate that they go in a new direction rather than just using a different name for Earthdawn horrors.

Also there is teleportation in Harlequin.

I can only speak for myself, but the instability of the forum certainly has discouraged my participation over the last two months. Especially the pbp crowd has moved to dumpshock and similar fora.

I can only agree with this.  I used to post a couple of times a week (sometimes even multiple times per day) but now my last 15 posts have been in the course of six months.

especially for PbPs it's very tricky as they are often quite difficult to keep going as it is.  Add to that the forum being unavailable for some time and it's almost impossible to keep one going.

Ok, quick question: I don't know if it was discussed earlier and I don't have time right now to go through multiple threads, so.

Are the Elder Gods in Dark Terrors are the Horrors? I'm still reading the chapter, but I'm curious. That those cultists seemed to break the "no teleportation" rule reminded me to all the talking in Forbidden Arcana, regarding Elijah's claims that "magic has different sources".

Yes, no, we don't know?
