  • A Sabbat with the Salubri among its founders would have been the enemy the Tremere really deserved.

    Or, to put it another way, Salubri with allies. The fact that no one raised a finger to help a clan that would have basically been everyone's second best ally, or to stop a clearly ambitious and deadly school of bloodthirsty newcomers, always made more sense as a deliberately tragic emotional narrative on the real life publisher's part than as a tactical move on the Kindred's part.

    This is just one person's opinion, but I'd rather have the mystery than an official clinical explanation in this instance.

    That's what I was clumsily getting at, rather than hold up the Hyskos as specifically noteworthy. Cultural appropriation is pretty hard to defend in any instance, but man, does my heart go out to Egypt over how relentlessly it's been done to them in the modern age. There's so much erasure....

    I'll die on the hill that the vampire imitated the god worshipped by the Hyskos Kings, if only to put respect for real life people (even if they're long departed) over game NPC's.

    Once the core rulebooks of the new editions of each of the primary game lines is out, I'd really like an authoritative guide to crossover campaigns. Game mechanics, storytelling tips, and food-for-thought details on how the material needs of each splat can complicate the existences of their allies.

  • I'd be entirely fine with that, the gameplay would be what matters.

    Contriving it as Anarch vs Camarilla might give each faction a monopoly on certain Discipline powers, potentially leading to some interesting asymmetry....

    D:tF and V:tM are my two favorite game lines from White Wolf. I have, somehow, never used Pentex in either. In Demon, run-ins with the corporate servants of dark powers could go to some very interesting places, but I would swap that game's mythology in and put the Earthbound in the Wyrm's place. The symbolic cosmic principle of Entropy and its many heads might still be what the Board of Directors think they're donating their Faith to.

    Vampire has far less to do with combatting evil spirits, but the appearance of Pentex products could possibly make for some fun easter eggs. I've...

  • If climbing up walls from ground level to rooftops makes it from the announcement cinematic to the actual game, I could give this a try. I miss the 2016 "Nosgoth" game that never made it out of beta.

    Whether this project has more longevity that Nosgoth did is an open question. The market is absolutely saturated with this type of game. It'll be up to the implementation of the Kindred's supernatural powers to set it apart.

  • I think this gets at the heart of answering the question in the thread title. The Tzimisce and Lasombra Anarchs either sincerely believed that their oppression went all the way to the top of their respective clans, or attacked their founders in a bid for enough power to overwhelm their more closely related elders; either way, a precedent was set and afterward they were all in on opposing the Antedeluvians - now out of necessity, because surely some other clan's ancients would want to make an example out of the upstarts.

    The closest extant thing to a written source on the Antedeluvians,...
