    replied to Creating a Ghoul Animal
    Nosimplehiway The reasoning behind that is complex and convoluted, but suffice it to say, in truth he’s just a Brujah Elder with somewhat corrupted blood, to the rest of the Camarilla however, he’s believed to be a Toreador much like his Adoptive Sire.

    As for the dog. The character and the ghoul NPC are meant for an Elder focused game. The likelihood of a random stranger getting into his haven, and then anywhere near his bedroom, is phenomenally low, seeing as it’s essentially a mansion. Besides, if you get that far into his house, you deserve it. (JK, in actuality I’m expecting...

    Pnizzle, those could all be useful, but seem to be exclusive to those clans. Besides, unless they stack with the points the animal already has as a ghoul, they’d kind of be useless.

    Yeah, that’s a no-brainer. It makes things, so much easier.

    Thoth, my character is slightly peculiar, in the sense that he suffers from both the clan weakness of the Brujah and the Toreador.

    I’m imagining the dog, being somewhat similar, resembling Fluffy from the first Harry Potter booknin a way. Big, Mean, and Likely to rip any and all intruders to shreds, however come in with a flute playing music, and you just might make it out alive by Enchanting the beast.

    I probably won’t go quite that route, but the dog will be fiercely loyal to his two masters. Basically a big cuddly teddy bear when dealing with them, approachable...

    Creating a Ghoul Animal

    I'm creating a ghoul NPC as a pet for a character of mine. The character is an elder of over 200 years old, and has his pet for a considerable amount of time. A Kangal dog, weighing in at 185ibs. It's primary purpose, would be to serve as a guardian of the PC's haven, while he is resting, or out and about. My concern is. in previous games, how do you decide the stats and skills for such a character? Do you simply plug in what's presented in the book, or are you allotted freebie points for a ghoul of such age?

    In addition. what would the perils be of a Brujah, owning such a pet, and...

    Friendship Among the Clans

    I’m working on an idea for an Elder PC, specifically a Brujah Alastor and Josian. Although a Brujah by blood, he is most closely associated with and friendly with the Toreadors, to the point of which he is more or less an honorary Rose, with little interest in reconnecting with his parent clan.

    I was asked who I would pair him up with, as far as his team and allies are concerned. Seeing as he’s a natural warrior, diplomat, and leader, I figured it would make more sense to have him paired with allies who can compensate for his weaknesses.

    So, I chose a Nosferatu Spy,...

    Mmm, if you’ve read up on the Rosd of Chivalry, almost all of his transgressions within the modern nights fall within it’s code of conduct. So his path would likely be at 8. As for Brujah, I actually love the clan, but I also really enjoy the Toreador. As a point of fact, in every game I’ve ever played, I’ve been either clan.

    As for Frenzy, it’s not a matter of being opposed to it, but this character is meant to be an Elder. Meant to be more in control, and having worked hard and fought even harder to rein himself in. I figure in the Modern Nights,...

  • How would Frenzy work for this character?

    I’m working on an idea for a Brujah Elder from the Dark Ages who is still around and active as either an Alastor or Justicar in the Modern Nights.

    The question I’m pondering is how would his moral views and resistance to Frenzy differ from your typical Brujah Neonate. The reason I’m wondering this, is because I’m designing him as an adherent to the Rosd of Kings, specifically on the Road of Chivalry. With 5s in Courage and Self-Control, 10 in Willpower, but a 3 in Conscience.

    He’s basically an executioner and hitman for the Camarilla, hunting down those on...

  • Kalendeer You aren’t that far off.

    He was a musician with ties to the criminal underworld. Here’s the thing though, James isn’t just a simple musician. Yes it’s what he’s passionate about, and what he loves but to go into further detail. His Sire chose him for his Physical Might and Stamina. I suppose at the core of it, he saw the capacity for great rage simmering below the surface, and chose to draw it out and stoke the fires. There’s more to the story I could write, but the simplest way I can put it is this.

    Even as a Mortal, James stood at about 6’6”,...

  • Kalendeer It’s not that he’s thick-headed, it’s more that he’d likely be living with Shell-Shock and a bit of PTSD. His Sire wanted a weapon, a perfect soldier, and so that’s what he turned James into.

    James went from being a humble musician with ties to the underworld, to being a one-man army. To such a point that not only did his humanity degenerate, but he’d also ended up with his hands drenched in blood. He’s the kind of character who over the course of his second life has killed thousands, it’s why he loathes and resents the Anarchs. Everything that was done to...

  • No, this guy would be a PC for an Elder Game. And like I said previously, he’s well-learned due to a long life, scholar would be the wrong word for him. He’s a warrior-Poet with many knowledges and skills that help him do his job better.

  • Simply put, as far as James is concerned the Toreador are his family, and the Brujah, are the ones he blames for his ruin.

    In life his music was bright, vibrant, and happy, now he writes soul-rending ballads about loss, pain, and war.

    In life his raison d’etre were the arts, passion, and love. Most of those were stolen from him unwillingly, and he’s pissed.

  • Kalendeer Yeah, I suppose I wasn’t overly clear on this. He isn’t a scholar in the same sense as the Tremere or a Doctor. Most of his knowledges are things that can be utilized in combat or in the case of Medicine for Torture, or come from being exceptionally long lived.

    At the core of his being however, he’s a Warrior-Poet. In his mortal days, although he was something of a criminal and a bard, he was a lover not a fighter. His Sire manipulated him, and he had his beloved and his surrogate mother murdered in order to cut all of James’ ties to his mortal life and his morality....

  • How would such an elder be perceived in Camarilla society?

    I’m working on an idea for an Elder Brujah, born and sired during the 1400s, specifically during the beginning of the first Anarch Revolt, by one of the first Anarchs.

    During the course of his life as a Kindred, he spent the first 50-100 years dutifully serving his master, as a Brujah Anarch warrior. That is until the realities of just what his sire had done to him and how his sire had intentionally destroyed his life, all for the sake of creating an ideal soldier to serve him.

    After that he betrayed the Anarch cause hard, defecting to the Camarilla and purposefully...
