  • While true, in part, you should also note that you can never embrace someone who is the best at something either. Vampires are stuck in a weird place of needing, even when they want to preserve the best of someone, to never take the person who has already made themselves famous doing such. You have to get someone you THINK has vast potential to become good at what they do and then take them before they actually do it. Even then, your vampire is going to be limited by a number of factors:

    * Most vampires will embrace only someone who is in their immediate territory. Ventrue Dave the...

  • The big irony, of course, is the racism and fear of vampires is the one time its actually justified. Mind you, I wouldn't be surprised if some Second Inquisition leaders are horrified at the prospect of minorities with superpowers more than Old European types. That and the fact that they accept, GASP, people of nonstandard sexualities!

    Man, the past few years have made me cynical.

    Then again, vampire was based around an accepting Punk sensibility....

  • Uh, no they're not. They're selected for companionship, beauty, because they remind the vampire of someone they cared for [including themselves], or as cannon fodder. Damien was embraced by Critias, for example, because he felt a bit of guilt about killing the poor random homeless kid. Neon was Embraced because Sheriff [shitbag that he is] hated the fact he'd killed a 7 year old in a frenzy. Maldavis was another "guilt embrace." Sometimes you luck out and you have Critias and Menele embraced because they're the greatest people of their age but usually people avoid Embracing Einstein...

  • If I were to run it, I'd state that vampires only burn in the Sunlight of Sol. I'd also state that outside of the Earth's atmosphere that any vampire exposed to direct sunlight (which is almost everywhere) will be incinerated quickly. I'd argue in other parts of space with other suns they would suffer lethal damage or bashing damage depending on what sort of star they'd find.

    As for how vampires can travel in space, I'd argue that its very easy as you just don't leave your starship and that most radiation shields around windows would block it out....

  • I'm not sure what the arguments are here to be honest and I wish I was but from what I can gather, here's my thoughts:

    1. Vampires are not infalliable: The Camarilla became complacent, selfish, and corrupt with less of a focus on the Masquerade vs. more a focus on defeating the Sabbat as well as Anarchs. As a result, they used mortals against them and this resulted in the humans finding out. This was monumentally stupid but entirely on-brand because IN THESE VERY FORUMS massive numbers of fans refuse to believe humans can tie their own shoe-laces. This despite the fact vampires ARE...

  • Hardelstadt the Younger was an individual who went to elaborate lengths to oppress and torture younger Kindred when Jurgen was passionately devoted to helping his fellow Kindred rebel against the tyranny of Ancients--including a love story there where his romance was taken from him by the Prince of Paris. Giving up younger vampires to the Second Inquisition, covering up the fact the Antediluvians exist, and selling out the Cappadocians are all pretty contemptible from Jurgen.

    I mean, realistic, because V:TM Anarchs pretty much inevitably go, "Die the hero or become the villain."...

    *Warning - Long drawn out political analysis*

    Let's be honest, Call of Duty's campaign mode hasn't been good for awhile now. It used to be one of the biggest franchises in the world but it got trapped in the yearly development cycle and then went in some odd directions. I don't think we have to explain that Ghosts, Advanced Warfare, and Infinite Warfare were not great directions to pursue. Each of them more or less ended without any resolution to...

  • Hell, in addition to being a body double for the original Hardelstadt, he wasn't the Camarilla's founder anyway. That was Rafael de Corazon. He just let him take the credit because he knew the Ventrue needed to think they were in charge. It was Rafael who made all of the wheeling, dealing, compromises, and alliances to actually get the Camarilla ratified.

    Because the Ventrue rule, they don't do alliances.

    That's the Toreador thing.

  • That's an argument, yes.

    However, I always keep one thing in mind when using the Camarilla and that's to think of them as not a nation-state but as organized crime. At the end of the day there's a word for someone who believes in the Camarilla: fool. The Camarilla is a collection of self-interested sociopaths, parasites, and serial killers that are preserving their organization not out of ideology but because they want to continue fucking the world over for the rest of the eternity. The Anarchs and Sabbat are the only people who BELIEVE vampires can be better or would even want to...
