    replied to Playing against Stereotype
    The way I approach it is that the essence of a clan isn't the same as the stereotypical perception of it.

    Take the Ventrue. They usually have money and power, and they can be ruthless holding on to both. But what the clan is really about is order, stability, structure, rational organization. That doesn't preclude kindness or selflessness. A Ventrue who ran a charity helping gang members to reform could be both kind and personally poor, but they would still be in charge and working to impose order on a chaotic world.

    The Brujah are the opposite. They want to change the...

  • It's not made clear, just "you cannot have sexual intercourse per se but you can fake it with a roll". (Female characters may already be familiar with this approach prior to being Embraced)....

  • Farmers would gain a significant advantage over their rivals at neonate/ancilla level. Ironically so considering the origins of the wretched thing.

    At the other end of the scale, Siren/Osiris types would be in trouble.

    Blood Sorcery that cleaned mortals and Kindred blood of disease would become a major bargaining chip. One of my Tremere NPCs/SPCs is called the Plague Queen because she's used that tactic several times, from the Black Death, to the 'flu pandemic in 1918, to the AIDS epidemic. Kindred might not worry for themselves, but they don't want to destroy their own...

  • Grimgroth is in hiding, suspected (perhaps correctly) of having disabled the Prime Chantry's defenses. There's precedent. He pulled all the power out of Mistridge's wards, allowing the Craftmasons to destroy the place

  • A first-rate summary and very useful.

    I quoted a character in one of my games a few years ago on another thread, making a similar point to the Ultraviolet quote at greater length...

    "Vampires are dead. There is no electrical activity in their brains. None. Yet they think, they feel, they reason, even though science tells us that all of these things are impossible without brain function. Their mental processes cannot be physical. They must be spiritual. Don't you see the implications of that? Vampires are empirical proof that souls exist"

  • I'm on the right of the political spectrum, but although I see your point to a degree, I don't feel that you're being fair. If you look at, for instance, Abraham DuSable, he's not a criminal or a drug dealer; he's a cultured, accomplished lawyer who was held back by the racism of his day.

    Many of the writers do seem to be very left-wing, and every now and then they'll show off the tolerant, open-minded inclusivity so characteristic of the modern left by saying damn' silly things like "obnoxiously male" (just out of curiosity, where was that?
