  • What do you think of this idea?

    My World of Darkness character is a Swan Maiden who has Occult 4 with a specialty in Kindred (she think vampires are really romantic in a tragic way and finds them fascinating). She's also an unusual Swan Maiden because she believes very strongly that getting sexual is an integral part of a good romantic relationship. She was talking to her girlfriend (female friend), a satyr who has a Ph.D. in chemistry in her mortal Seeming, and we had an idea. What if we invented a potion that allowed vampires to enjoy sex the way they used to when they were mortals? Obviously we couldn't mass produce it, but we were thinking we could trade it to individual vampires (especially Toreador and some of the less inhuman Tzimisce) in exchange for a Boon or something. What do you guys think? Would this work? How would we go about doing it?

    One thing to note, Vampires returning to enjoying biological processes is more than just a shot to fix the flu or viagra. Its a separation of being a dead corpse that can only hunger and know fear and anger and well opening the floodgates to so many more things and fancying a handy with the fishmarm.


    It is a time for great deeds!

      Hmmm. Thank you. I'll keep that in mind.

        I may be mistaken but I recall there being a trope where the romantic good guy wants to save the tragic broken character.

        So... it could perhaps be used to try manipulate vampires on the lower end of the humanity scale to regain their humanity. "Strive to regain your humanity and you too can have this potion of orgasmic fun times in this LIMITED TIME OFFER!"

          Also the banality of vampires does a number on fae, let's all hang out with the walking equivalent of a radioactive isotope

            Dwight hmmm. I see your point. I personally hate that rule--I think vampires are super romantic and totally the opposite of Banal--but I think my ST agrees with you. How do I convince him to let my character (and my friend's character) hang out with a bunch of Kindred without incurring Banality?

            GilbyTheFat plus it just feels good. They've got to miss actual sex after being stuck with nothing but the Kiss for decades or even centuries.

              1. You don't, vampires are life draining monsters frozen in time, they only create more suffering.
              2. When the kiss feels a hundred times better then sex why would I miss it?

                    Do whatever makes you and the other players happy. Personally I like the Wamphyri from Necroscope, so when I run I use mechanics similar to the Thrashing Dragons in Kindred of the East.

                      Thanks. We ended up talking it out at the session Friday night. My friend knows more about the old stuff than I do, so she actually used the Thrashing Dragons as an example of how vampires can enjoy sex. The ST didn’t want to burn game time talking about all the gory details (like if the potion gets a vampire turned on is it actual wetness or just blood), but we can text about that during the week. He did say we’d have A LOT of issues with Banality if we tried to interact with Kindred (even Toreador) on a regular basis.

                      Thank you guys again for answering.
