  • Solace, that's a cool thing i have never played with in my games.... have to check it out. Maybe blend it a little with Lacrima just to make things even more complicated and messy, who knows. Vitae additives/drugs are fun to play with, that's for sure.

  • A few questions about the old Mythologies book

    So people, does anyone still use that book? How up to date is it or not? Are the concepts there still raw/fresh or have some (or all) of the ideas in that book been superseded by later and more fleshed out stuff in later works?

    It has been quite some time since i last tinkered with setting-building (probably a little before Strix Chronicles, goddamn) and wished to get some input from other people on the book and related stuff, to have some fun tweaking/updating materials of that book, but also to avoid the pitfall of reinventing already existing wheels without meaning to where possible....

  • I could see something like that being worked simply enough with thhe Khaibit bloodline's Obtenebration discipline or through a Hollow Mekhet's wandering Ka, i guess.

  • Yes, most probably that, thanks a bunch. Might check that out for fun too.

    Last i touched something from Berlin, was because i got the idea of making the taxi-driving Caine on Bloodlines and the crazy methuselah impersonator from Ascension of Caine in Berlin By Night one and the same (or a different vampire driven mad by the same amulet). Lots of stuff to get up to date into. ...

  • Weird, i was under the impression there was some early preview product for V5 that was set in Berlin...



    Well, it does give some more tangible than a term defining a variable and loosely defined range of age/experience to toy with, for sure....

  • So it's matter of generation more than age - meaning a lot of low-gen younger (and impressionable) kindred might feel it too, resulting in powerful elders suddenly seeing themselves abandoned by their valued childer/lieutenants and in need of new agents to catch the reins before they are lost or break apart.... now that is something of a twist i could tinker with too.

    Thanks, got to look for Rusted Veins too, it seems. It's the tale/adventure set in Berlin, no?...

  • Little aside, what exactly "less elders" is supposed to mean?
    Is there any criteria to what kindred are affected by the Beckoning, to what level and how?
    What is the measure of an elder vs ancilla, 1-2 centuries, 3-5 centuries, whether it got a cameo or was ever played in a DA game?

    Honestly i have no idea whatsoever having only heard 3rd party rumors and would like to hear your thoughts and takes on the matter.

    replied to V5 Vienna, Tremere & friends
    Must admit that the whole "House Carna" thing got me by surprise and i utterly love it because Carna as i remember her from Milwaulkee by Night is an utterly horrible, terrible choice of a person to become a sort of leader among the Tremere, what to say the head and founder of a splinter house. such a lovely, bloody mess.

    On the matter of Etrius i'm kind of divided because i remember how he was described back in Children of Inquisition and it's hard not to see that, entertaining though it may be, his characterization was atrociously flanderized and messed up from VtDA...

    replied to V5 Populating a city
    Well, why do you think things got bad enough that a Second Inquisition would shape up and hit so hard?‚Äč

    Anyway, i'll admit i'm fairly ignorant about almost everything relating to V5. Recently got a copy but didn't really have the time to read it yet.

    But based in what little i do know, I would guess that the big questions to deal with are:
    - Does the Beckoning affects (or not) an individual city's elders and regional power structure to what level?
    - How many are gone?
    - Which one's have childer/retainers/thralls that can keep things running smoothly...

    replied to Where was the Scarlet Empress?
    It's a way of seeing it for certain. Another is that her protection was for utterly selfish, though human and valid, motives - the survival of her and the world she lives in, the consolidation of a world-ruling power base around the strategic position she managed to get into through snatching the Imperial Manse.

    Or alternately, she honestly cared deeply for her stewardship role over Creation. Once. But decades and centuries of success, stability and power may bring with it many temptations and ways to corrupt, changing a person in ways subtle and remarkable both. It's partly what...
