  • So the Prince ordered her to look into a situation, and Celia's response was murdering and making blood enemies?

  • I've not read it, so this is a question; was the expressly ordered to kill the human?

  • I can see Canty being brought in to Chicago Tremere circles, but mostly so they can pump him for information about the Sabbat, Tremere antitribue, and the Lasombra. His prospects beyond that become dim, however.

  • What you did there, I see it.


    I mean, given Bartelby's object of obsession...

    In any case i like Bartelby and he is the kind of Tremere character I might have made. For all that "most" Tremere are bookish wizards of the Hermetic take on magic, the clan should have members who work support in some manner. That is there should be room for Tremere characters whose work make the standard Tremere possible. Bartelby is such a vampire, someone who gets them items, books and information even if he is not much of a magician himself. That everyone dislikes him...

  • Before I move on to the next section of the book, there is no longer a Brujah Council or Soviet Brujah, as a real group. There are some survivors, but they are scattered about. However, prior to 1990, the Council existed. And it would have been screwing with the West to disrupt the Camarilla. Now it will just come down to how bored Princes are, and how much power they possess.So its not what they Soviet Brujah would do as what they did do, back in the day.

  • We don't know if the Soviet Brujah considered themselves Anarchs, or as a part of the supposed Anarch movement. We do know they did not consider themselves to be part of the Anarch Free States. The label of Anarch was stuck on them by the Camarilla, and it might only have been applied out of spite and after the collapse of the USSR and the disappearance of the ruling Soviet Brujah.

    And lately the Camarilla calls everything aside from themselves "Anarch."...

    I think you are forgetting
    (a) in the real world the cold war continued until the Soviet Union collapsed, and it did not end when Stalin died.
    (b) Vampires can create their own justifications to fight each other when those reasons would not otherwise exist, and this is a large part of the jyhad.

    Which is to say, the Brujah Council would have been fucking with the Camarilla, and the Camarilla would have been fucking with the Council, because
    (a) the Cold War went on for about 80 years,
    (b) vampires are assholes,
    (c) it makes for good stories....

    It is a good use of resources in the lore, and the writers put it to good use.

    Soy Cuba

    I enjoy research and chasing down references. I mention this because I usually try to catch and check out the references in these WIR, in this Anarch book, in the Camarilla book and in the Beckett’s Jyhad Diary book.

    Soy Cuba, as a term, led down an interesting rabbit hole.

    “Soy Cuba” is Spanish for “I am Cuba.” Soy Cuba is also the name of a movie. According to Wikipedia;



    Mise en scene is the arrangement of scenery and stage properties in a play, including the costumes, the selection of actors, sets, props and so...

    I will take your word for it about CotBG - I don't have the book. And the assassins being Hecata is a good, and disturbing, twist.

    Lasciami

    The book finally provides something a bit bloodier than vampires hanging around night clubs in Iceland or climbing mountains.

    It gives us the Anarch Mafia. Who probably operate a lot like this…



    Lasciami is Italian for “leave me alone,” or “get off of me,” more or less. Such as might be the final words of an Italian speaker being attacked by a vampire.

    The section presents as the transcript of a recording between people speaking Italian about murders are public relations statements, while in the city of Naples....

    Roll Call of the Revolution

    Rudi returns to reiterate a statement from Garcia back in No Prince, No Caine. Basically, there a many types of Anarchs and a lot of them do not care about the jyhad.

    Anarchs is a catch all term used by the Camarilla for all the vampires than are not Camarilla (I wonder if they use it for the Hecata?). By and large only the really politically active Anarchs bother to call themselves Anarchs – the rest of them are preoccupied anything other than the endless revolution and politics are simply the Unbound. What the Unbound and the Anarchs...

    24 Hour Party Bloodsuckers

    “Party all night. Sleep all day. It’s fun to be a vampire.”

    That quote from the film Lost Boys more or less sums up this section. It is a first person account of a pair of vampires, in a toxic friendship, and their feeding habits in Reykjavik. There is not much else to say about it, except it is a little dull after all the preceding sections of vampires going through their nights with no cares about the jyhad....

  • Guardians of Forever
    Sphere: Time
    This (nominally Technocrat) group is of unknown origins and unknown age. They take it as their endless remit to prevent any form of time travel. This include the standard business of travel into the past to save Lincoln or kick Hitler in the nuts. It also includes attempts to see the future through use of mystic magic or even techno-magic. They are rumored to know the future, but wont share the details... but the aggregate of comments, suggestions, mood, and the like collected on the Guardians by others suggests that humans are approaching extinction....
