Why Nightfall? Why not hack WoD, Dresden Files, True Blood or Twilight (as if!)?
- A) Been playing it loads, both on the iPad and Card version.
- B) It has proper Werewolves and vampires
- C) No-one else is doing it (unlike my ME hack)
- D) It isn’t far off Underworld.
So Thoughts…I’ve seen people suggest using Physical, Mental Social due to WoD. Someone on rpg.net suggested different affiliations for different races. But I think i’ll stick with Team Buddy Solo. Distinctions and Specialities are fine, although as usual I will go down to d6 for spec. In fact, the Nightfall cards provide one distinction on them. Cheers!
So Powers. This will have to be different for Vampires, Werewolves and Hunters.
Vampires. One Innate Power set (Appearance, Charisma, Speed, Strength, Stamina, Durability, Reflexes. Vampire Limit. Healing and Invulnerability SFX). One Special and/or Gear Power set (Hypnosis, TK, Flight, Invisibility, Shapeshifting, Magic, Weapons).
Werewolves. Human Power set (Speed, Strength, Stamina, Durability, Reflexes. Silver Limit. Healing SFX). Hybrid Power set (Speed, Strength, Stamina, Durability, Reflexes. Weapons (Claws, Bite). Silver Limit. Healing and Invulnerability SFX. But then i may need a wolf power set and a Gear power set. Now a bunch will be Mutually Exclusive, but that’s a lot of sets. The other option is to just have 2 Sets and give 3 ratings for the base powers set (M/H/W) and have the gear be mutually exclusive.
Hunters. Must have a Gear power set. Then either a special training, extra gear or MAgic power-set.
I’m sure I’ll extend this to Mages/Wizards and Faeries at some point to be able to use the other sources. But those 3 will do to start.
So for an example character:

Speed d8, Reflexes d8, Appearance d8, Charisma d8
SFX. Regeneration. Spend a PP to heal all Physical Stress.

Mind Control d6
