This has been brought up and denied as it would take away a part of the brilliance of the old system. Yes, you could get weanie-pegged to hell, but someone takes a mass blow, it's mitigated by a few stones, which shows those moments in comics where a hero takes a blast that should kill them, but they're still on their feet.
“How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart, you begin to understand, there is no going back? There are some things that time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep...that have taken hold." “My name is Cernunnos, And I will love you like none other, For I have died a thousand tiny deaths, And every time I died I thought of you.”
Wondering if there's been any recent progress on this project? I'm willing to help out with the writing part of it when the project moves to that point of development (flavor text, editing, whatever)...I'm a professional writer and I've done contract work for White-Wolf before. I hope 2.0 happens!
