  • .. Let's see, one of the few actions that is considered an automatic penalty on humanity without a conscience roll, eats up more than one dot at higher humanity levels, literally eating the soul of another vampire, gee, I wonder how I came up to this conclusion....

  • He'll lose the flaw but will never manifest a clan, Mukthar Bey the Prince of Cairo is a 7th generation Caitiff vampire

    Oh also, you can't serial diablerize like that and make it far, diablerie is one of the quickest ways to go below 1 on the Humanity scale

    Well to be honest, vampires never were "bigger picture" oriented. They don't have a collective overarching goal or some apocalyptic scheme or whatever, just some undead blood-sucking creatures engaging in nightly petty politics and hanging by a thread to their little piece of eternity.

  • Being an ex-Muslim I might give some help detailing Ibn-Shaitan, first by saying that it should be changed to Abna Al-Shaitan, or perhaps Banu Shaitan, even better

  • Is it safe to say that Onyx Path are scrapping the bottom of the barrel? There's a limit to how many eldritch abominations, depraved monsters, otherworldly weird stuff and downright what-the-f's you could include in one universe. Should've stopped with Vampire, Mage and Werewolf (okay Changeling was super cool but still...)

  • Trading Humanity for experience points?

    1ED had a rule when during character generation you could trade up to two points of Humanity for the maximum of 10 XP, is this still applicable in the core 2ED Requiem? Can it be homebrewed? I found it immensely useful for playing characters who were Embraced "already in the hole", which really happens all too often.

    replied to Vampire vs Mages
    This entire thread is pointless.

    vampire if you want to play politics, backstabbing, personal horror and favor exchange

    Mage if you want to play magical exploration and uncover secrets, encounter monsters and wtfs

    Versus wise depends on the scenario, a mage could engulf a vampire with fire using the Forces Arcana and call it a day, a vampire could seduce an unwary mage, drag him back to her haven and get that sweet, sweet awakened Vitae when he is most vulnerable

    People can play whatever they want, but the system is built on personal horror (I mean c'mon, it's on the cover) this is why I'm generally opposed to the action-packed approach (games like Scion are much more suitable for that imo)...

    But honestly, I follow those guidelines (and enforce them, if I'm the ST) to get the best out of this game. There's dramatic potential in having a character dragged straight from mortal life into the Requiem, with no prior knowledge of the occult or the supernatural world. I also prefer mundane concepts because there can be no horror when you are playing a John Wick or a Jason Bourne.

    And to be fair, the Ordo tend to embrace people from academic or scientific backgrounds, doctors, scientists, mathematicians, engineers, or simply people with odd life experiences, a multi-suicide survivor...

    The three unwritten rules of creating Vampire concepts (now written):

    1. Must not be too famous (Embracing celebrities shake the edges of the Masquerade)

    2. Must not be too aware of the occult before Embrace (Anything they might have known before being Kindred should be unfactual and mostly useless)

    3. Must stay grounded to reality (Keep it simple. Make sure the character could actually exist)
