  • 1001 V:tM plothooks

    Since they already have a thread like this on both RPG.net and the V:tM group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2208364950/) why not here? So lets collect 1001 or more V:tM plothooks to inspire us all in here.
    These are my first contributions:

    1) During a Sabbat raid a while back an elder's childe vanished, assumed destroyed. The truth is different however. He successfully bargained for his life with the pack that assaulted him. He defected to the Sabbat and proposed to make his low generation useful to them in a way that goes far beyond the gains of merely committing diablerie on him. The elder's childe came up with the concept of a 'diablerie farm'. He embraces people on a regular basis and stakes them. After which the pack sells the low generation vampires for a profit.
    The PCs first come into contact with this scheme when one of them is approached about buying a diablerie farm product. Or they simple notice how much more local Sabbat, Anarchs and even some Independents show signs of having committed diablerie.

    2) The Sabbat launch an attack on the city. The local Camarilla is ready for them however. The Sabbat siege collapses after only a couple of nights, without doing much damage. An unlikely survivor of the failed siege is a confused Shovelhead, a Lasombra of only a few nights old. A mortal loved one of one of the PCs that fell victim to the Sabbat's mass embrace tactics. It is up to the PCs to convince the city's Camarilla leadership that she is no threat. And should be allowed to continue her unlife, as a Camarilla Kindred.

    3) About fifty years ago a Nosferatu neonate suffered final death at the hands of a witch-hunter. His sire who adored this childe succeeded in capturing the killer and took horrible vengeance on him. The Nosferatu surgically dismembered the witch-hunter and just before the atrocious wounds could kill him he was embraced. Afterwards the Nosferatu dumped the limbless vampire in a flooded subbasement of an abandoned building. Where he could feed on vermin for the rest of eternity and slowly go mad.
    The witch-hunter didn't go mad. His religious beliefs and a thirst for vengeance kept him going. Now decades later he has started taking action. Making use of Animalism the light-proofing of his Nosferatu sire's haven was taking down in the middle of the day, reducing the occupant to dust. This is only the first act of vengeance, all vampires must be destroyed. Soon enough one of or more PCs will be confronted by an attempt on their life perpetrated by animals.

    4) A new up start Toreador is seen in the company of one of the character's, the two retreat to speak on something private. After the PC returns to the party, the Toreador is found later dead, all fingers point to the player and or the coterie.

    5) The Sheriff as come down ill, the players are asked to take up the position as a coterie to enforce the laws of the city, strangely other elders are becoming sick as well, it seems to only effect those over a certain age, now the coterie must save the city.

    6) During a Primogen Council a stranger comes in and kills the Prince with little to no trouble, the others stare in disbelief, he says nothing and leaves from the room. The vampire is an elder of extreme age who has been hunting down his enemies childe for the last 200-300 years, chaos in-sues on who will take the throne to make matters worse, the local (Werewolfs/Mages/Hunters/etc) are turning up things against the Kindred of the city, the PC are pushed into the lime light.

      Was the Prince new? Otherwise why would it have taken his sire hundreds of years to find him if he was openly ruling a city?

      Why would the sire do that in person if he wasn't planning on taking power? It's insanely dangerous. After all, if an unknown vampire unexpectedly bursts into a primogen council meeting disciplines blazing it's almost certain that everyone there is going to open fire on him, even if they hate the prince. After all who knows what this crazy man's goals are, or who he'll target next.

        hunting down his enemies childe If you want an entire chronicle, we can work something out. lol The Vampire (lets use Kemintiri as an example) would nuke all of them or any one of them, and who said that some do not try and meet their death as well. And as I said he kills the Prince with little trouble, mere seconds. The elder (kemintiri, type elder) is hunting the progeny of a former enemy. Good luck with that. Last there is no phone book to look up who is Prince where, maybe the elder just found them or maybe just now had the opportunity to move against them.

          Yeah I think there are plenty of elders already that could do this without batting an eye...especially if it was a US or something Prince/Primogen. Those guys are only like 7th-9th gen...a 4th gen walking in there would just own the room in mere seconds before they could react....especially if said elder is activating all his shit before he enters the room...at the least anyone who responds with deadly force makes themselves a target...and if he just owned the prince in < 3 seconds...I would doubt they would do anything rash....they have their unlives to worry about as well.

            7.) Your coterie/pack decides to try and learn [Insert clan exclusive discipline here], and luckily there is an elder of [Insert corresponding clan here] who has a reputation for being amenable who may or may not be near the city right now. Should you find the elder will he agree to teach your coterie? What horrible favor will be asked of you to earn the right?

            8.) As mortals your choices, their consequences, and the circumstances beyond your control have shaped who you are today. But tonight another thing beyond your control changes, and the choices you make, and the consequences thereafter will shape who you will become as you are embraced by the curse of Caine.

            9.) The hunters have come, will you flee them? Will you destroy them? Be careful going forward young kindred.


            Don't piss off your story-teller: He has werewolves on speed dial.

              Oh, sorry, I somehow misread that as his own childe

                10. A blood hunt was called on one of the city's Ancillae. The sheriff tracked him down but found him living in comfort in the domain of the Giovanni. Why did the Giovanni agree to house him? What is the prince's reaction to this news? 11. A small town was formerly Sabbat territory however a archon with help from a sheriff and his deputies from a larger city nearby managed to reclaim the town. The town isn't worth much being newly built but the archon has appointed a PC to be prince of it. Weeks after the new prince has arrived a member of the [Insert non-camarilla] clan arrived and soon after his arrival, it was discovered werewolves followed him there. Why are the werewolves following the new arrival and does the new arrival have anything of value to trade the PC prince in exchange for asylum.

                  11) Fires break out at an archeological dig. Over a dozen mummified corpses are discovered and each spontaneously combusts as soon as it is unearthed. They assume this phenomenon is caused by the ignition of gases within the bodies.
                  The truth is that the archeologists have stumbled upon the resting place of nearly twenty Kindred in torpor. One of which hasn't been reduced to ashes. This one lucky enough only to be discovered at sunset. It's been taken back to the university for study.
                  The local Kindred are most curious, believing this could solve a number of prominent disappearances in the domain's history. So the PCs are petitioned to retrieve the slumbering vampire and find out who exactly he or she is and what caused them all to lie there. The culprit might want to stop them from finding out though. Or maybe the torpid individual isn't to be trusted.

                    12) A Kindred has come across a human who does not awaken the Beast’s need for blood. In fact, the Beast seems quieter when the human is around, less hungry, less angry. Once, just as a curiosity, the Kindred bit this strange human and found that the blood did nothing to mitigate the Kindred’s hunger. The Kindred also found that the Kiss did not work on the human, nor did any disciplines.

                      For the first time in history a truce has been negotiated by elder of the Camarilla and the Sabbat. To celebrate this peace, a Soiree has been Organized in New York, Manhattan. Kindred from all over the Country, are expected to attend from both Sides. A few hours into the evening, 3 Black Hawk Combat Helicopter arrive above the building were the vampire are celebrating.Less than 2 minutes later, multiple explosion are set from the roof glass ceiling and into the main room,the a large fire starts in the main room, and soon most of the building is on fire. Many vampire meet their final death in the ensuing chaos. The player characters manage to escape just barely. While driving away from the location, one of the player receive a call from the Prince. The players are summon to his domain. Later that night, the prince task the player to investigate the matter, he believe that since the players have been recently embrace that they wouldn't have been swayed or corrupted by the opinion of others yet. They are currently the only the prince can trust.

                        A family member of one of the coterie/pack has vanished. Clues point to a supernatural attacker, but no clear signs as to who. Was it a coincidental snatch and grab? An attempt to gain blackmail information on the character? Or could it be a secret test by their sire to their true loyalty, or maybe preparation for ascending on a path of enlightenment?

                          15) A truly desperate vampire contacts the PCs, looking for help retrieving a box lost somewhere in the US postal system. The box contains the torpid body of the vampire's grand sire, and needs to be found before the vampire's sire finds out. Obviously, the Storyteller should tread lightly, and keep the box's contents a secret, lest the plot turn immediately into a hunt for Diablerie.

                            16) For years, Theo Bell has searched for his mortal father to no avail and has settled for his descendants. What he doesn't know is that his father's Wraith is trying to look for his son. So far, father has all, but one of his Passions resolved (to reunite with Theo) and he needs the PCs help to get a hold of him. Who knows what damage his Shadow could do if something bad where to happen to Theo (like death or diablerie). The reason father couldn't contact him sooner was due to being caught up with the Renegades and becoming the local faction's reluctant leader.

                              17]>The Gangrel 'valkyries' of Uppsala, Sweden have sent a neonate to stir up interest in the ranks of the American West Coast Anarch Movement. She's much much socially adept than most Gangrel ever bother to become, and now other Anarch leaders are starting to get very worried.
