  • Well the idea behind the stake is that IRL it was used to pin a suspected vampire (corpse) to it's own coffin/grave and prevent it from rising to drink the blood of the townspeople.
    A quick search didn't turn up any instances of wooden stakes being used, possibly because they would have decomposed along with the body, but I did see some examples of iron stakes being used. Perhaps wood was used when/where iron was too expensive for use in this manner.

    IRL Bulgarian grave site where iron stakes were used http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...e-graves-Archa...

  • Since they are all pretty similar anyway (from the perspective of a non religious person), you could always say that the Lancea is not so monolithic as they appear in the books and that local chapters are free to use elements of any Abrahamic religion in their rites.

    This way you don't have to design a whole new covenant, just the rites they perform.

    Ideas?
    Those who study this heretical Coil believe that the Birds of Dis represent the next evolutionary step beyond Vampirism. Adherents strive to shed their physical shells and become closer in mind, body, and deed to the malevolent entities known as the Strix. Some have even attained a measure of success while others fall rapidly to their Beasts or are rumored to suffer fates far worse than this.
    Unsurprisingly many students of this Coil attempt to keep their pursuits hidden, as Kindred society in general is unlikely to hold favorable views of their own kind emulating an entity...

    Where do you see Blood Potency 3?
    I'm hoping there's some juicy info about ghouls in the Half Damned book.
