    replied to Can a Dhampir be Embraced
    You can also just handwave away those seven words (the last three of which are "duh") if they don't fit your view of Dhampiri or story needs.

    Or, as I suggest in another thread, modify their possibilities through Merits.

  • Well my point was that it could be not so much doubts in his faith, as in doubts in the emphasis and exercise of faith by his fellows. You could use this character as a kind of vampiric Martin Luther--who set out to reform the Catholic Church by pointing out first privately and then publicly what he identified as excesses. Luther was also preceded by a variety of figures who, likewise but more quietly, attempted to keep the natural human impulses of the Church's leaders in line with their scriptures.

    There is a lot of history you could template off of for a very fine investigative...

  • Yep. The Weihan Cynn are interesting, and I'm sure that there would be a few around in Elizabethian times--though most would have moved on to more vital Covenants.

    My understanding of the Cynn is that they represented a web of occulted knowledge of supernatural contacts: what exists, roughly where, how to contact them, what they wanted and what they might offer. They shared this knowledge more-or-less freely within the Covenant (boons aside), and then members went out and cultivated relationships with supernaturals (e.g. werewolves, spirits, Changelings... True Fae...) in order to...

    replied to Boon Economy. Hows it work?
    If said Hunger, Mage, Werewolf, etc. understands trading favors and vampiric society well enough to barter for boons, then a vamp would likely do so. There are two considerations:

    1. It's a bit like a pig trading favors; sure, but you're still food at the end of the day!

    2. City/Covenant body politic may frown on the vamp's willingness to trade formal boons with creatures who should not know they exist.

    Formal boons are enforceable at the political level by at minimum (maximum is Princely edicts) ensuring failure to fulfill results in tarring of reputation....

  • I had a long and elaborate response typed out that evaporated and haven't the heart to recompose at the moment.

    Suffice to say that True Fae can and will imitate the legends of, well, faerie. They will order themselves and compete among themselves according to rules that they set (no challenge can be completely impossible, for example), and they need the real world to fill the creativity gap that they have. There is a lot of conjecture as to where the True Fae came from, other than "Changelings with high Wyrd", but to me it makes sense to assume that mortals/supernaturals...

  • Or, perhaps that vampirism does have a divine purpose, however that purpose is diverted and perverted by the weight of sins that people casually acquire while they live. It is, in fact, through devotion and dedication to a divine cause, that enables vampirism to function as more than just a magnifying lens for mankind's worst impulses. Vampirism could be viewed as like handing an atom bomb to a child: their irresponsibility gets everyone around them into trouble. In wise hands, however, that same power is a potent force for mending the wreckage humans leave of each other--let alone the depredations...

  • I'll start by admitting that my knowledge of Circle practices is thin. That said, the impression is that they are 1) omnivorous when it comes to "pagan" worship practices regional or otherwise and, 2) venerate more broadly the thread of maiden/mother/crone female goddess motifs with special focus on the Crone part. These are also not exclusive points, nor are they ones that VtR comments on as to their "correctness" as a results-oriented belief structure--Circle adepts get results because of Cruac at minimum and no one really knows why Cruac works.

    That said, the...
