I can't help but think about the parallels between Jeremy Dewitte/Dylan Vogt, and David Alan Gore/Fred Waterfield. Both pairs involved hiding behind a badge in order to commit crimes. Both pairs seem obsessed with control and domination of others. Both pairs escalated and continued their crimes, even after being caught, again and again doing wrong. Each had a strong sexual motive behind at least some of the crimes they committed.
And just like with Sgt Vidler, the top guy bird dogging the case, Det. Tom White, was ordered to stand down, even after presenting amazingly strong evidence to politically sensitive superiors.
"Gore's mother complained to then-Gov. Bob Graham's office, and a supervisor told White to leave Gore alone. White said he argued: "You know he's guilty. We've got to find out ... he's going to slip up." "No. You're ordered to stay away," White was told."
It's my personal opinion that left free on the streets, Jeremy and Dylan would end up about as bad as David and Fred were. Am I being too hard on Jeremy and Dylan? I don't think so. What do you think?
I’ve googled, searched through this sub and all I found was something about being blood? Does this mean that the guys in the kinfolk were related?
Sorry if this isn’t the right place, but I’ve binge watched season 5 (before any other seasons) and spent so long trying to understand the lingo 😩
Also, jasmine is VILE 😩🤮
I'm the enforcer...The valet, I hold the keys and the shank.
So I have my old kinfolk book somewhere in my bookcase, but I figured I'd ask the good people of reddit before I open it up and start looking for an answer that may or may not be there...
But one of my players is playing a Lupus player character, he figures he'd sink some point into the Kinfolk background to have a wolf pack he's watching over. Fair enough. And then he tells me he'd most likely have some pups around.
And it makes sense - the idea that a Garou can just waltz in and mate with the alpha female is well established in the setting. There is no real reason not to do this every time she's in heat. It furthers the Garou line, the wolves generally fall in line anyway and all that. But I never imagined that the Garou doing this would be a fresh off his rite of passage Cliath - in my minds eyes, it would be a more experience and older Garou. Which made me think - are their breeding rights in the Garou nation? Especially with the much rarer wolf kinfolks?
One of the 'issue' that came up is how it is a relatively 'cheap' way to get Honor/Wisdom, especially if the chronicle has a lot of downtime and/or ends up going for a couple of in game years.
Also, another part of the issue is that... aside from giving access to rare lupus breed garou, wolf kinfolk are usually a lot less useful than human ones (I can't wait for people to correct me on that one... but yeah, human kinfolks can often double up as Allies or Contacts or w/e... a pack of wolf is somewhat limited in what it can do for you). So if you're not 'allowed' to breed with them, they really don't do all that much for you.
Am I just thinking to much about it and meh... whatever, a Cliath Garou with the kinfolk background can sow his seeds as he please or is there something to this?
Taurus sun, Capricorn moon, Taurus rising What’s good, homies?!
I know there is a group for the Latinos, the Caucasian’s, and the African Americans in jail, but what happens to the Asian inmates?
Obviously a lot of mages would join the traditions or crafts, but surely some of them are discovered to have awakened before then.
Do they have a particular role within the Garou/Kinfolk community?
I hadn't seen any posts about these new scents by Lotus Noir, so I figured I'd let people know! also-- it looks like they'll be releasing some more holiday scents in mid November!!!
The bright white floral top and fruity mid notes of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe coffee piping hot in a demitasse edged in 14k gold next to an ornately decorated plate of pillowy beignets dusted with powdered dermera sugar. The headspace of a dark brewed cup enriched with spicy resinous frankincense. Small tendrils of buttery pastry waft throughout the composition.
The passionate sensuality of tuberose, an accord of jasmine sambac and cyclamen inspired by coral beads and flashes of fuchsia lace, the ebullience of Persian Saffron, the cream with whisky notes of a Bailey’s Irish cream aperitif and a Cuban cigar, a smoky jollof rice note with fresh tomato leaf.
The best parts of an old fashioned African American soul food Sunday dinner condensed into an actually wearable gourmand---thick slabs of hot buttery biscuit-like orris, resinous spiced bourbon vanilla marshmallow benzoin glazed candied yams, soft delicate chypre notes of peach cobbler, the vegetal earthiness of vetiver and ylang-ylang, and a deep animalic gravy-like amber, musk, and sandalwood.
Ozonic ice-cold air in the lung and through the nostrils tickling the trigeminal nerve, the crunching electrical charge of ice against the teeth, the clean metallic amnesia of all frozen tundra whether city or country. No peppermint, no pine, no menthol.
A densely layered gourmand composed of rich amber caramel with spiced toffee notes, sugared currants and raisins, a layer of frothy whipped vanilla bourbon rum cream and a keynote centered upon the dessert nuances of white Oudh.
All of Us Together
An airy and green, woody atmospheric with notes of Siberian Fir, Gurjun Balsam wood, Egyptian Neroli, bergapten free Bergamot, and a fantasy accord of glittering light created to invoke the intangible press of warmth and brilliant comfort of human energy featuring keynote of Black Spruce.
So, when people started talking about lotus noir -- I knew I had to order because I am in love with lotuses. I even have a black lotus tatted on my calf. Then, I see their awesome branding, unique scents, great prices/deals (the coffrets especially) AND they have a perfume with jollof rice as a note. One of my best friends, of the few that went to my wedding, is African and that is one of my best memories is eating Jollof with him at an African food festival we travelled out of town to get to way before rona. By this point I was fully all in and the Kinfolk collection really called to me.
I have been into indies for ...three years or so. I've probably owned like 500 scents. I frequent cocoapink, solstice scents, hex, suc, arcana, recently got into wylde ivy, big nava fan, bpal ....so I've been around town a bit. I know the lay of the land so to speak. I know what I like, what I don't like, what works for me what doesn't.
NONE of my experience with indies so far prepared me for what I was going to get in this package. ALL of the scents I got are so masterfully blended, unique, and have amazing throw (I got EDPS.) They smell polished and complex but not like a mainstream or drugstore scent. I am really sitting here, with these guys fresh out of the mailbox, just blown away. I will review for y'all below but seriously -- run, don't walk -- to get your hands on these if they sound like your thing. My wallet did not need this. I think stock looks a bit rough on their site for some of these, but hopefully they will restock.
In the order I tried them:
Ozonic ice-cold air in the lung and through the nostrils tickling the trigeminal nerve, the crunching electrical charge of ice against the teeth, the clean metallic amnesia of all frozen tundra whether city or country. No peppermint, no pine, no menthol. It's like I rubbed one hand on an ice cube, the other on a tulip, and put them both up to my face at the same time.
Snow petal is a great name. When I smelled it, I immediately got this sense of breathing in a frozen flower. It's a white flower, maybe tulipy, not rose, but it's incredibly atmospheric. It does smell like you're breathing in fresh, winter air. And, like they said, no mint or pine. It has this grassy undertone that makes me think of strolling through the park. Very refreshing and unisex. Strong contender for a full size. There's a sharpness too it that reminds me of gasoline, without the gasoline. It's like Hex's Chat Noir... keep reading on reddit ➡
This video was just posted on /r/WorldOfInspiration by /u/Leothefox88 (all credit to them for finding it!) and I thought it had some of the most concise advice I've seen about how to interact successfully with Wolves.
This is something I've seen many new players struggle with, so much so that in my own game I don't allow new players to make Lupus breed characters as their first character. It's a difficult mindset to adopt without experience. The discussion on the importance of body language (critical to Lupus speech), rank (in this case the Rank within the Garou Nation), and how to avoid appearing to challenge, are all excellently handled.
So /r/WhiteWolfRPG, what resources have you found useful in getting into your character's "headspace"?
Haaooooowdy folks! I'm back for another episode this week where I will be discussing the Kinfolk, the Unsung heroes of Werewolf: the Apocalypse who are closely related to the Garou, yet who will never experience the Change.
I hope you will enjoy this video, for once it's not the first part of a series, but rather just a standalone! Gasp, shocking I know! ;)
Thank you very much!
I’m watching season five and josh a white inmate has decided to run with the kinfolks instead of the whites by eating with the black men in episode 8.
Does anybody know what happened to Josh? What’s his last name or know where he is incarcerated now.
Interesting how ignorant things are in the yard compared to county jails.
