    I don't have time to join a hater list.
    Didn't see much V5 hate threads in the first group. Oh, it comes up, occassionally, sure, but mostly, people just talk bout the classic stuff and VtM in general. Sharing artworks, ST's Vault projects, character ideas, stories, that kind of stuff.

    I am thinking about joining after the forum here was so much fun and then died out for me with all the fifth edition stuff. Now I need to make a face book I suppose even though I oppose that kind of stuff (social media in general)

    They just don't talk about V5 at all.

    If so, I would have to leave. As I am very much looking forward to V5. Though that doesn't mean that I started hating V20 gut or stuff like this.
    You'll notice that zero percent of the group's content is about hating V5. It's all about loving the V:tM that was, never mind to what extent.

    I suspect, after V5's debut, it'll be even larger than even you would have expected.

    You can roleplay the emotions and character development without a mechanic behind it, after all Humans don't have a beast and Can't fall into Wassail

    I usually agree with you, I'm not sure if dropping humanity works, but you have me going through it. I'm assuming you still use virtues to avoid frenzy? You've got me trying to figure out if Humanity can just be ignored with virtues just doing double duty. I think the biggest problem is how the different levels of sin were written.

    What changes when you forgo the Humanity stat? length of torpor (set by age?), How many dice during the day(by generation in reverse,maybe losing a die for every gen above 13th?), how many dice interacting with humans(make normal, possibly combined virtue ratings?). Powers target humanity/path sometimes, switch to willpower? I feel like Humanity just needs a rewrite, but you have me thinking about it. Vampires tend to find the 3ish range (personally I'd stay higher, but in a vampire game sometimes people need killin) eventually in my games so I always thought paths were the only real way to go as a vampire.

    I find the slam "path of what I would do anyway" silly as long as your finding a structure. You'll naturally drift to the path you agree with the most.

    I guess virtues would still be subject to degeneration, I suppose it could be balanced out to remove it and simply have virtues be the bench mark for behavior. I'm gonna think about this for awhile, so thanks for the mental exercise.

    I generally use virtues to avoid frenzy, and otherwise ignore the moral degeneration aspect of the game, except in Dark Ages, as I prefer the Roads in that game as opposed to the Paths and Humanity in the main game.

    Never was a fan of "personal horror" as a concept, I always preferred mystery, political intrigue, and yes, even modern action-adventure in my Vampire games.

    I always run Masquerade as less "Personal Horror" and more "Black Lagoon with Fangs" or "The Sopranos with Fangs".
