  • I'm on the idea that the first 3 dots are coming with the embrace and the new kindred would discover theme in case of need or dangerous situation (if not instructed)

    • I wrote one to two dots because only two dots have to be from in-Clan Disciplines. The third can even be of a Covenant Discipline. The text even says that the player should consider how the vampire learned the third dot if it's not in-Clan.

        It doesn't mean this third dot can't be innate too, as long as it isn't a Covenant Discipline. The Curse is fickle, spontaneously developing the first dot of a random Discipline, even at the very Embrace, isn't out of the table, either as a response to your specific Sire's curse or an effect of your own unique circumstances.

          Yup, very much this. First Requiem PC i made, a nosferatu car theft boss, happened to start with Auspex, something his mind would later on associate with vague recollections of seeing his soon to be sire looming over him in a pale aura crisscrossed in black veins, while he bled on the sidewalk on his last moments as a living, breathing man on earth. Flashes that would later on led into some hefty curiosity tinged with paranoia as he learned more of kindred nature and his own powers.
          But anyway, a probable mix of sire vitae tainted through diablerie with a natural aptitude awakened while on the edge of death, could be said.

                    At a fixed BP of 1 they're taking damage every ten minutes and rolling to resist frenzy with a -1 penalty unless they're hurt or hungry or especially inhuman. What is the test here?

                    • thought the mention of a lockpicking kit made it obvious? To pick the lock into a house or utility shed To avoid being killed by the sun.

                        To make the question more obvious: What is being tested by specifically putting a character in a situation where they will assuredly suffer an atavistic panic response and take a path of lesser resistance like hiding behind the shed or battering down the door or breaking into a nearby house or going literally any other route that doesn't require them to manage precision tools in a time-sensitive situation that is more tremendously uncomfortable than deadly for a starting character, and by what metric are we being asked to say if it is or is not "fair"?

                            They won't.

                            At the first signs of coming dawn Frenzy will kick in, and even in the absence of frenzy panic will ensue. Not to say that the tool itself means nothing if the character doesn't have some experience and skill with it. This is a setup meant for unavoidable failure.

                            If you want to measure a Revenant's ability to think clearly, you need a situation that doesn't require a particular skill, either by being simple if focus demanding, or by being open to several solutions, and you must not pressure with imminent Frenzy-inducing stimuli.

                                I think there was a supplement about a broken masquerade that was supposed to come out but so far no news...
