  • Nightly Activities (Humongous Random Table Time!)

    I sorely miss random tables in Vampires. As I found myself getting a bit stale regarding what kind of milieu and situations the PCs would end up in when they sought out various NPCs (it would almost always be a random party of some kind), I realized it was time for a random table of such situations, to inspire myself to think out of the box and come up with more interesting ideas in the future. What are the NPCs actually spending their nights doing, and what are they doing when the PCs meet them? Well, here's the answer! I'm open to other suggestions, as I could definitely remove some results from the table in order to add better ones. Note that this table is designed for Mexico City, so there's a couple of cliché Mexican activities represented.

      This is really cool. Imma use this next time I play V:tM.


      “No one holds command over me. No man, no god, no Prince. Call your damn Hunt. We shall see who I drag screaming down to hell with me.” The last Ahrimane says this when Mithras calls a Blood Hunt against her. She/her (I saw the Chief Technology Officer for a big company do this so I guess I’ll do it too).

        Not going to lie, but Alpaca raising is the best, I mean I don’t think I’ll want to fight the Sabbat if I came across them raising alpacas.
