  • Brett Stryker

    Type: NPC

    Synopsis: Beautiful exterior, ugly inside.

    Review: I've always secretly felt that Brett Stryker was a character made to be a Hate Sink (see TV tropes) for the creators of Chicago by Night 1st Edition. He's an exceptionally attractive asshole who has absolutely nothing underneath his exterior and uses then disposes of those people that fall for him. He's a Toreador stereotype that works well as a beautiful but ugly hearted thing that also I suspect played on a lot of geeky tabletop roleplaying gamer resentments. Gaming is everyone now...

  • Note: An element which I should note about Annabelle's stats is that she's got Portraiture and Sculpture at 3, Dancing, Harp, and Singing at 3. Which combined with Dexterity 5 and Charisma 5 means that Annabelle is actually a very talented multi-faceted artist. We usually only take characters seriously if they have 4 or a 5 in a Skill but those are the "best in the world." Annabelle was originally considered to be the archetypal Toreador poseur but it seems she's actually quite talented at creating art or at least displaying it.

    It changes a great deal of her character as...

  • True, I wasn't trying to divide the Succubus Club's clientele up but one thing I've always believed while Storytelling is the more you limit something, the more you define it. In any case, that's just how I would divide the two. The Succubus Club is very Goth, techno, and perpetually Halloween with blacks as well as whites. Very much Ghost and for more classic Goth rock, Sisters of Mercy. Red No. 5 is very much golds, brown, and hardwood reds. Very much Drake and Rhianna.



    I don't recall Lo Pan being in the original Chicago by Night. I do own the Book of Chantries, though,...

  • I think that's kind of a interesting point since the way I run the True Black Hand is that they are a secret cabal in the Camarilla and Sabbat. Both sects drew a lot of their ideology from the Black Hand's theology and beliefs....

  • Toreador

    We're getting into the final stretch of Chicago by Night 5E's clans now with the High Clans of the Toreador, Tremere, and Ventrue being all that's left. From this point on, we won't be talking about Anarchs but instead the snootiest of the snooty.

    Do I have anything to say about the Toreador and their changes in 5E? Not really, the Toreador are easily the most note-perfect of clans in previous editions and remain so. One of the best decisions I ever made was forcing an All-Toreador game of my players once. None of them wanted to play the "sexy brooding socialite"...

  • Yes, the Gary section would be the Santa Monica section. It's a run down and depressed location (but livelier in the WoD than reality). You maybe also meet folk like Evelyn or Allicia and others.

    The Succubus Club would be a major hub of Chicago.

    Obviously, it won't happen for various reasons (Chicago 5E) but there's indications that the WOD MMO was actually going to be set there.

  • I actually had a dream about a Vampire game set in Chicago. You wake up in Gary and eventually fight your way to Chicago, making alliances, and everyone commenting on how strangely powerful you are.

    You turn out to be a Caitiff sired by Menele and can either fight against him, Helena, or abandon both to fight it out between them....

  • Sylvia Roanhorse

    Type: NPC

    Synopsis: Kinfolk turned to Anarch revolutionary.

    Review: Sylvia is a character that isn't among my favorites in the book but has a solid and interesting character as well as mark. She's a Thin Blood Native American woman who was Embraced from what was obviously a Garou Kinfolk family (of vampire hunters no less). However, she was kept ignorant to it until it destroyed her life.

    There's a problem with almost any new edition of the game that you can't really mention the information of previous editions of the games,...

    On another note:

    How do YOU guys handle:

    1. The Anarchs

    2. The Camarilla

    3. Their conflict

    4. The Prince and the PCs

  • Crossroad Press to re-publish Clan Novels, DA Clan Novels, and Grail Covenant

    https://www.facebook.com/CrossroadPr...08137189206659



    I've been informed that it actually is a signed deal as of an hour ago by David Niall Wilson (who is the guy in the announcement). One of the the funny things is that this all got started a year ago when I was looking on Amazon.com and noticed that the Clan Novels were unavailable on Kindle or ebook but only PDF at game stores. I contacted White Wolf about it and eventually ended up talking to the CEO at the time who told me there were no plans for ebooks. When he was replaced, I contacted them again about seeing...

    My take on the Anarchs is that they are not a single movement so much as a bunch of individual smaller revolutions. Every Anarch domain is different to some extent and largely informed by whichever leader ends up in charge.

    In today's world you can get:

    * Camarilla-Lite: The only difference being they don't pay homage to the Camarilla and are independent.
    * Theocracies: Ministry-run domains for the glory of Caine/Set/Lucifer/Lilith. Probably the closest to actual egalitarian rule.
    * Coterie-run states: The gang in charge running it like the Primogen. Possibly...

    No, they're a revolutionary movement.

    Brujah: soldier
    Gangrel: guerillas
    Ministry: Ideologue

    I'm also inclined to believe the Anarchs aren't one large movement but like 15 allied together....

    Mind you some of my players would do it because, "I think I have a better chance of hooking up with Maldavis or Anita if I join up. Vampires can only have sex twice but it'd be awesome."
