  • This is a very strange view to me. Even with the interpretation that Black Fox and I prefer, a Gangrel doesn't "just become Animal X" -- they slowly turn into a monstrous hybrid of beast and human. Saying that this isn't scary is like saying that Cronenberg's The Fly is nothing horrific, because Jeff Goldblum "just" turns into a mixture of man and fly.

The entire point of having different settings is to provide distinct play experiences, after all. Revised and V20 seem a little too eager to bring all the Dark Ages factions to the modern nights, with Salubri Warriors becoming Salubri antitribu, Cappadocians becoming Harbingers of Skulls, Telyavelic Tremere becoming the new Tremere antitribu, and...
