Raineh, if you end up statting said NPC please post here too and I'll create a thread to archive her. An idea I've had on the backburner for quite some time was a "Hero's Tavern" with a bunch of NPCs using tobhou stuff.

Rekmond, seems like you're organizing the campaign online, could you provide a link for me to check out just of curiosity? Or at least a rough outline of what's more/less popular?

Sure, it is over on Rpol. Has a few features I like including the simplified dice roller and the 'Character replacing user' within games. Also, you don't need a mod to create a forum for you, you can create a game forum without any assistance and it is fairly simple too.

http://rpol.net/gameinfo.php?gi=68066&date=1484048877

You'll need to click Game Menu in either top right or bottom left to go to the threads I have up so far.

As it is, you'll only be able to see the 3 threads I have up regarding applying and character creation.  Not that there is anything else right now aside from a thread where I put my random thoughts.

I'm still a very inexperienced GM though, so there isn't likely to be anything too impressive. But take a look around if you want.
I will say that there are a good number of people on Rpol who enjoy using homebrew content, but not many GMs who like it, Mythweavers tends to be friendlier in that respect.

And I like the idea of an NPC recruiting station. I might pull from it every now and then.

For Septette For The Dead, All The World In Nightmare, what if we have wings, but they aren't bat-like?

Seems like you get batlike wings instead. Must say that it seems like one of the weaker stances--a flight speed and some DR, but the bonus requires you to spend a ton of blood points to apply single-roll bonuses/penalties that are resisted by a will save.

Quote
If they fail and you consider them an enemy, their next 1d20 roll takes a profane penalty equal to half the amount of blood charges you spent. If you consider them an ally, their next 1d20 rolls takes a profane penalty bonus to the half the amount of blood charges you spent.

Also that part feels like it needs rewriting. Shouldn't it be "If you consider them an ally, their next 1d20 roll gains a profane bonus equal to half the amount of blood charges spent"?
Still short tempered.

You gain two sets of wings each with their own fly speed.

Unlimited darkvision is nice and there's some resistances thrown in there too.

Well, let me do a quick compare
Ancient Temple's Delusion of Enlightenment: Gain huge melee reach, but nothing else.
Dream Battle's Border World-Maiden's Fighting Bounded Field: Gain a variable fly speed that may be better or worst, ignore Aoos from moving through threatened squares, solid fogs, bad weather conditions and similar for movement purposes, can even move through enemies but that'll trigger Aoos, plus Wis as Deflection to AC. Nothing particularly big but a lot of them.
Drunken Demon's Oni Crowd "Imp Swarm" become a mob. Probably more raw power, but brings its own penalties, in particular more limited mobility overall.
Lunar Dial's Perfect Square: Gain a variable movement speed that's probably gonna be higher plus boosted Haste. Big numbers all around, but somewhat lacking in utility.
Plain History's Sacred Treasure Land: Create "safe" area plus cosmetic effects. Potentially quite powerful, but won't do anything at all if your enemy can save.
Riverside View's Way of Avici "Infinite Nightmare": Big damage buff, but a fanatic opponent can ignore it.

So it doesn't seem that weaker to me. None of the benefits may be something huge, but there's a lot of them.

Anyway now it'll still inflict a fixed -4 penalty even if an enemy makes the save but you spent 11+ blood charges and you can use it when somebody rolls a 1d20 and you know if they would fail or succeeded.

Fixed, thanks.

Incidentally, if I take Diabolic Wave and I'm not a vampire, am I getting off scot-free from the consequences of my Forbidden Research?

The idea was that if you lacked a Blood Charge capacity it would count as zero and drop you straight into catatonic state but that sounds a bit too harsh so made Diabolic Wave count as having 1/4 the Blood Charge capacity of a vampire for the purposes of Forbidden Cost only.

Also, does simply having the feat, but never having resorted to it, prevent you from holding back?

Good point, made the penalties only start to apply at 99% capacity so you don't have any problems while at 100%.
