          Here is a Storypath Character Sheet for Vampire the Requiem. This sheet was a special request produced by MrGone who has crafted some of the most amazing Storyteller Sheets over the years. The next step is interactive for formfill.

          Your feedback is welcome.

            What would be the benefit of this?

              I think posting the exact same thing in three different threads is a bit excessive. I follow different forums instead of individual threads so it clogs up my subscription list, and two of the threads are even in the same subforum so it's not like anyone would miss only one of those.

                  So noted, my apologies, I was posting from my mobile to my recent post thread.
                  In case they are only following one thread, I also would not like them to miss it.
                  Is there a way to combine them, or should they be combined?

                    You could post a link in two of them to the one you want to keep. Anyone following them will see which thread will be updated in the future. You could also ask a mod to close the other threads after that.

                      So are the storypath rules better suited to running VtR?

                        In my experience VTR/COD become a race for who has the biggest bonus and largest handfuls of dice.

                        Storypath adds some mundane modifier balances, enhancements, and complications into the mix while adding Scale rules which consider when when two sides are matched or unmatched.

                        For example a Giant may be Scale 3 against a mortal who is Scale 0, this applied give the Giant automatic sucesses which really highlight and speed the system.
                        Also I have seen many one shots kills of important enemies that went way to quick. Storypath implements an injury / critial injury based on stunts (additional successes). 5 extra succcesses in COD/VTR would amount to 5 damage, where as this in Storypath would be one injurt and a second critical injury for a total of two damage on a much smaller health charts.

                        I think they flattened the weapons and armor a bit to fit this damage and health, but Im adding a few custom items to smooth it out for myself.

                        Just a couople of items off the top of my head.

                        Your milage may vary.

                          Those do sound like large benefits, but the amounts of "stuff" for each gameline (Disciplines, Devotions, etc... for vampires) does seem quite magic. Guess I'll see how far you end up taking it. ^^

                            Ya it is a large undertaking. I am starting with Vampire the Requiem and once I have the bones of one COD line done it will be easier with each additional line. The blood sorcery of VTR will help me with the Mage part. I invision Mage as being the hardest of them.

                            The home page is here.

                            The Landing Page is here with a lot of my work so far.

                            The current Campaign Introduction is here.

                            I am always looking for feedback.

                            Best regards

                              Graylion so you’re keeping the setting, just changing the rules?
