    Yeah, and while that's a very functional model, in CofD it's already taken of course. Spirits are voracious predators, generated by and feeding from the Essence created through places, actions and emotions. This is... kinda cool in a Princess Mononoke sorta way until they get hungry enough to reach across and try to create the stuff they like to eat. Then people become objects to farm at best and hollow out into little inhuman factories at worst. That's... that's horrifying.

    The Fae are... Others. They have limited creativity but all the stories from time and space to draw on if they...

    Well... You're not wrong. Only they're the "predators that rule" versus the "predators that stalk".

  • More specifically, they can take you over for dot purchases through XP expenditure. This is an important distinction, since some power stats go down as well as up (BP, prime example), and when they do so it does not reduce already purchased dots--just removes the ability to buy more over the current limit.

    Mmmmmmm. Aberrant powers....

    Seriously, if you're a player dealing with something really strange the ST is throwing at you, you have better things to do with your time than complain about how it came about... maybe investigate?

    And if you're the ST, you have all the license needed to cackle madly while statting out your monster. And this is without considering Embodiement

    Cheers,

    In addition to what Iceblade44 cites, my preference is to trace the Ventrue back further, to Phoenicia, which spread them throughout the world (literally, the trade networks touched everywhere including the Americas from some evidence!).

    Notably, a major trading port survived the Collapse of the Bronze Age (~1200 BC), and you might know it: Carthage. The future rivalry between Rome (Julii) and Carthage (Ventrue?) is well-known and drawn on for other iterations of Vampire. Troy is regarded as a Luwian city-state, and there is a theory that the "sea peoples" who precipitated...
