  • Enlaving Slashers

    How difficult is it to enslave a slasher, then again... would they be affected differently by magics such as the viniculam.

    Emphasis mine. Yes, slashers like anything else are not immune to it. It's still not a very good idea to addict some supernatural killer with say, Integrity 1 to your blood who may decide to display it's devotion by tattooing your entrails.

      so if Im from the Circle or Santum, and want to use a slasher, in either Tempering a hero, or Testing humanity, I probaly want more then the viniculam? Conditioning Gift is hard to find

      Though I can just use dominate to steer him into the right area as the hero who needs tested.

      nothing says they need to live with me to be used to test a hero, or to clear out a neighbourhood might be best they not for multiple reasons.

        Bear in mind Slashers draw attention. That's not really good for Vamps. Also, they tend to be, well, crazy - so "test a hero" is pretty limited to "see if they can survive a serial killer".

          What better way to test a hero?

            A) Put them to a sadistic choice
            B) Strip away apparent consequences and give them power/what they want.
            C) Make their life miserable and see if they continue.

            Assuming you want, you know, a hero. As opposed to someone combat/survival capable. Because non-heroic a-holes can survive too.

              Do remember a Freeform Masquerade game I played in once, a Malkahavian oracle Told the prince that a mortal serial killer would upset the apple cart.

              and a Mask, or Brute probaly would

              a Charmer or genius though...

                You might want to explain what this has to do with anything.

                  That was just saying I know that a Slasher can cause disturbances

                  but a Charmer or genius is, ideally, too subtle to even be noticed.

                    That's really not how it works, in general. Charmers and Genii (and their Scourge forms) get noticed. At least, their actions do, even if who exactly it is is left unknown.

                        That or be prepared to cover up serial murders (which, frankly, they probably have some experience in already) until needed.

                          obviously. Best thing to do, is use conditioning... or some similar total control magic.

                          Might be enlightening for a Telepath to try reading their mind at being Forced into inactivity for so long...

                            Hmm. An interesting plot twist might actually be having the Slasher with a split personality brought on by vampiric mental manipulation. Either the Slasher part emerged after too much mindfuckery, or the non-Slasher part was programmed in. Bonus points if this was unintended by the vampire in question.
