    Well Carl is the ST and he's declared it canon so hey. Mind you, Carna was Anarch and then went Camarilla again when the Tremere Pyramid was decapitated.

    Cheeky....

    Well some of House Carna is part of the Camarilla.

    Jason Carl has a bunch of Carna with the Anarchs and hunted by the Elders in the Tremere....

    It's the Tremere Antediluvian's personal gang of evil wizards.

    We haven't seen their write-up yet but they'll probably be independent of the Sabbat soon....

    I also think that if you have mind-control that affects massive numbers of people, we're talking a fundamentally different reality than our own.

    Eh, it worked for his game clearly. Realism isn't always the best thing to do game-wise. Sometimes entertainment trumps historical accuracy and that means you let the vampires dramatically alter history.

    I liked how Jason Carl homaged the French Revolution section of the Transylvania Chronicles in LA by Night.

  • [V5] Let the Streets Run Red - What we know

    I noticed that LTSRR is actually possessed of its own advertisement in the back of Chicago by Night unlike The Chicago Folio.

    It's also apparently a full 250-300 page supplement.

    There's a suburban Chicago, Milwaukee/Indianapolis, rural Illinois, and Gary, Indiana campaign.

    I'm super excited for this one and we're finally closing in on the release.

    Plus, we have this preview of its contents.

    To derail the conversation a bit, the French Revolution is fascinating because it's actually a series of micro-revolutions against the previously successful Revolution. So killing Robspierre would have probably prevented one of the Revolutions because the other Revolution had already succeeded. Derailing the entire thing is a lot harder but there was a lot of in-fighting that ultimately got resolved by Napoleon's military coup, yet even he declared himself the Protector of the Revolution.

    Or to reframe, "If you killed Stalin then the Russian Revolution already happened and there'd...

  • I think part of the issue is assuming the Anarchs are a "new" thing when the way it's set up the Anarchs should have been there for the Revolutionary War, French Revolution [which they were retconned as being behind], the Russian Revolutions [The Brujah Council has since been retconned as an Anarch Movement], and so on. There's nothing that prevents the Anarchs from being organized and dangerous revolutionaries to contrast against the Camarilla's oppressive brutality.

    Terrorists vs. Tyrants, take your pick.

    Also, where did all the centuries of revolutionaries...

  • Awesome insights, False Epiphany. Hope you don't mind me making a huge number of comments.



    I like Anita Wainwright definitely but also note that it seems weird that they're making her antagonistic to Maldavis who is still in her funk 20 years after the events of Chicago by Night 2nd Edition. Mind you, I find it completely believable that the two women would irk the hell out of each other with one being a low generation Civil Rights legend who is not active versus one being a hign generation who is plus the fact Anita is a white woman involved in radical black activism...

  • Fair enough.



    The central conflict of Vampire: The Masquerade for me has always been the War of the Ages. Antediluvians vs. Methuselahs, Methuselahs vs. Elders, Elders vs. Ancilla, Neonates versus Ancilla and everyone in that group against each other. The Anarchs are the group that represent an immense lust for freedom and willingness to fight against the chains of slavery that are inherent to the system. You as a Neonate should almost always side with the Anarchs because the Camarilla is deliberately designed to go against anyone who isn't over 200 years old. Its is...

  • This isn't college and I'm not getting paid or graded on responding. This is my hobby. I'll respond to the others if I want but be like 20% less intense.



    From what we see with Sierra Von Burris and Marcus Vitel, the Lasombra who are defecting are the rich and influential Lasombra. The Lasombra are abandoning the poor shovelheads, fanatics, and pathetic fools while taking the entirety of the Sabbat's wealth and power with them to join the single most powerful institution in the World of Darkness.

    And they're going to probably rule the Camarilla in a few decades...

  • The Lasombra switched sides because their Antediluvian was still alive so they clearly took a shot at the Devil and missed. Now the only thing to do is serve it and grovel, while throwing their fellows under the bus to save themselves.

    Because that's how the Lasombra roll.

    Honor, respect, loyalty? Please. Save it for the shovelheads....

  • Eh, I generally allow people to buy multiple ranks of powers as a way of illustrating the diversity of powers in V5. This is a house rule, though, to compensate for the fact that this system doesn't work for methuselah....

  • I think the best updated character from Chicago by Night is Anita Wainwright. I always had her as the "Friendly Neighborhood Vampire" in my games and Granola girl. Here, she's been updated to being an angry powerful new leader for the Anarch Movement nationally. I feel like Maldavis was hurt a bit but I actually like that the two women hate each other. The Anarchs often get a bad reputation and have been underused in previous editions but their new leadership of her and Gengis show the two different sides of them with revolutonary (Anita) and sellout hypocrite (Gengis).

    Also, it's impossible to "dismiss" because it's all handled at the table....
