  • Lasombra in CBN didn't feel like lasombra clan, they felt like lasombra apologists,
    they sounded like pathetic squatters that had to prove something

    in the game though, we don't get that feeling,
    the lasombra are a shadowy organization, a clan meaning business, having seemingly ruthless and brutal methodes,
    and you get the option to play the part as Julia without all the apologism

  • I just finshed the game and...got the good ending...lol
    I don't know how, I guess I'm too used to playing sabbat

    the game is pretty good,
    it lacks interactivity, it feels more like the game is playing you rather than you playing the game,
    however, it does have the advantage of leaving you tense with a constant sense of insecurity and every choice feels like a gamble that can go terribly wrong.
    at the end of the day, it's all about choosing what to believe in and stick with it with the risks that come with it

    the lasombra are better presented in...

  • well, they have reasons to believe so

    KJ are cursed to pay a karmic debt, most of them deserve their fate (by their standards)
    Cainites have no purpose, and they can force their curse on anyone, the innocent, the child, anyone,
    they can also enslave and force anyone's actions

    kj have spiritual ties and can balance the flow of chi,
    most cainites are confined in the tellurian (lasombra the rare exceptions), and their powers cause the surrounding chi to go bad

    kj are dynamic beings capable of change and capable of maturing,
    cainites are...

  • let's stay on topic, we're not arguing about vampires hating or liking each other,
    we're arguing about kuei-jin taking cainites seriously or not, and if either position is justified and why...

  • they do, they can spend demon chi on auto successes (like potence) or on additional turns (like celerity)

    then they have disciplines like black wind which gives imediate extra turns and another that gives extra turns similar to celerity except they spend yang chi (I think) instead of demon chi



    I don't know how it ended, but you're saying that kuei-jin don't take cainites seriously even though they got rekt in mexico and later hired anarchs,

    the Genji often ally with sabbat and recognize paths of enlightenment,

    the BP often allies...

  • that's actually what happened,
    in one section dedicated to crossover, it did describe kuei-jin getting rekt by shovelheads and, with it, the horrifying realization that cainites could force their curse on people



    kuei-jin get both potence and celerity as innate abilities,
    black wind users get an advantage in that black wind extra turns happen before celerity turns,
    which means they can attack a cainite multiple times before that cainite can use their celerity turns

    the physical cainites are not that big of a threat to them thanks to access...

    *sigh*...lasombra usually get an additional weakness in Dark Ages on top of the reflection thing and sun damage,
    in Revised DA and V20 DA they get pained from bright lights. and no, it's not there in the modern nights books, only in DA...not that I know what could constitute a bright light in the middle ages

    that said, even if they didn't get special weaknesses, how is an unnatural reflection any less a weakness than no-reflection?...

    iirc, the guide to the Black Hand mentioned Cathari having started as a heretical way of the cainite heresy (a heresy of a heresy, since they worship opposite Gods),
    if the cathari are still alive (which I highly doubt), they'd probably be terrorizing or hunting down the church of caine (since that's all they can do nowadays)

    Redemption probably doesn't care about gnosticism, and definitely doesn't care about noddism (to them, Caine was wrong),
    and I don't know, but I don't think the cainite heresy is heavy on punishing sinners,
    so I doubt there's much overlap between...

    yeah, that's my undertsanding of it

    if motion sensors didn't pick them up AT ALL, I imagine they wouldn't trigger alarams or traps,
    drones and terminators would be visually impaired against them etc...did Lasombra just win the ascension war? ._....

    yes, though as far as I know, Road of Heaven see themselves as blessed (sometimes as quasi-angels) whereas path of Redemption see themselves as monsters, accept their damnation and are expected to explore sin

    on that respect, the kuei-jin are closer to the Redemption perspective than the Heaven one...

    I kinda like both, with a slight preference for the new one

    the old one was one of the few weaknesses you could really have some mad fun with, especially with some disciplines like obtenebration and obfuscate (the revised version in particular, which had no range limit)

    the new one is cooler imo, with lasombra flickering in and out of reality,
    BUT, oblivion as written isn't good enough to cover for it...shame



    yeah, I'd limit it to touch screens and maybe buttons

    though I'd definitely expand to levers and wheels for Tremere,...

  • the music might just be the best thing about this game,
    it translates the deranged and oppressive atmosphere really well while staying melodious

    I haven't heard such music since Shadowrun: Hong Kong
    if anyone knows where I can find similar music, please tell me

  • the game doesn't care much about the rules. which I like, and I like the clan curse better the way you describe it

    correct me if I'm wrong, but she seems to have access to high level disciplines despite being 2 nights old

    it's a nice change of pace, getting sick of playing boring crippled fledgelings

  • NT-1s maybe, they're like T1000 Terminators

    maybe they could combine it with another HIT mark to make a Rev-9
