    Strix night horrors book?

    thought on this a while think it would be cool as much attention as 2nd edition gives the strix.

    oh just thought of this a month latter but wondered?


    Think its unthemantic for an Amanotsukai Elder whos feeding restrictions become slackened because of the Ecstatic condition to immediately with joy in their heart go about Targeting a mortal for Harai?

    I feel like if your intention is to murder them anyway, you could find a way to keep them from returning without need of a ritual; decapitation, piercing the heart, etc.

    However, I would say that a Level 2 or 3 ritual would be more useful for blanket immunity for the the night, if you don't want to leave things to chance. I'd say level 3 personally because I believe that is when a Cruac practitioner can be immune to staking for the night.

    The only way I see that we could get a strix specific book is only if they decide to detail the realm they and possibly vampirism originated from, which they can get to by the Dark Places Embodiment.

    While that be very cool it is unlikely given as it is a Lower Depth which normally is a one way trip. Though maybe vampires can be an exception if they figure out a way to open a portal themselves, probably through Blood Sorcery. Still it's unlikely.

    Personally tho if they were to give any more info about the place, I wish they canonize a name for it (pls let it be Dis) and connect it to the command Remus told Aulus in Requiem for Rome to dig the Necropolis, that is he said for him to dig all the way to Dis. I just hope that ain't metaphorical.

    They're kind of the same in 'power,' both dealing with a very specific issue while not granting immunity to other things.

    yes or create a new harai Ritual or something similar.

    is a cruac ritual that prevents you from creating revenants for the rest of the night, any more powerful then one granting immunity to staking?

    And revenants rising gets in the way of that theme.
    You could probably convert one of their Harai rituals to allow that.

    Yeah, if a vampire kills someone and doesn't want them to return as revenant, they usually destroy the corpse (or, even a simpler alternative- don't go around and kill people). Having a special rite for it may be nice- but not as effective or easy as setting the corpse on fire or cutting it to pieces.

    Maybe. Seems more like it would do something to them, like make them Crone-influenced revenants or something, rather than eliminating the chance entirely.

    Like, thinking about it, it would be spending Experiences so that someone can drain people dry and not have them come back, or kill ghouls and not have them come back. Which seems a very niche thing to be spending Experiences on. I can see reason for someone not to want revenants to come, like if they're wiping out an enemy's lair, but if you're going that far you might as well just be up front about it and lop off their heads or do something else to ensure they don't come back.

    Charlee Jacob wrote a beautiful story about vampires who were cursed by the sun in another fashion. The sun actively recruited them, lured them into a dangerous lifestyle and illuminated them with wisdom their minds couldn't control. Then it would turn on them, burning them out. Would be interesting to see something like that in another proto-vampire.

Things like independent gargoyles, or the Sutina from my homebrew sig, Sunwalking/Gloconda achieving vampires, alchemical monsters brought into life from bloody birthing pits, Malakavia or any other weird condition which vampires could suffer from, or which could be created by chaotic exposure to Vitae.

    But again, as Vampire already has two Night Horror books, I wouldn't expect for such book anytime soon.
    ""blood anomalies"- not weird vampires as much as weird things created or powered by Vitae. Things like independent gargoyles" now this idea I really like, so stuff like Gargoyles, Void Creatures, Cruac Gods, and so on (some of these like Cruac Gods and Void Creatures might be covered as alternate types of vampires in spill blood, because they are).

    Constructs animated by formal or informal blood sorcery — Danse Macabre includes a covenant-agnostic system with some particularly fancy examples.
