  • I was thinking of having Sheriff make an appearance. Just something very brief. The game thus far has been very social...I kind of want to scare them a bit. I figure if they head back to the old house that they used to stay in - the one where Nicholi interrupted Anton communicating with his sire - Sheriff may be there doing a brief investigation at the behest of Nicholi. Sheriff will of course be Sheriff and I can see the PCs getting their backs up about it which will cause a very brief confrontation that will likely end with one of them looking down the barrel of a shotgun. The Wolf Pack, I'm...

  • All right so game got finished and got interesting.
    I decided on this session to not plan much and let the PCs have their head, so game started slow. PCs went off to feed and looked into Tripps younger brother some more. He is the victim of the Circulatory System they recovered and lied to Modius about. He is still exhibiting signs of heavy drug use and something else. Our Tremere Anton tasted the blood and confirmed it. Suzi visited her "sire" and was warned away from Juggler which she chose to ignore. She also asked about some more details about the Salesman who he found out...

  • Oh I get that, but it certainly doesn't work for a longer term political campaign. I think it worked initially because when it was introduced, PCs spent what? 1 game session in Gary, if that? For me, its looking like my players aren't going anywhere for the next while so I need a better solution. Game tonight, so I'll update you guys on the latest developments!...

  • Crap. I just had a whole long written out and the forum ate it. Ugh...lets see if I can recapture my thoughts.


    Alicia
    In order for us to look at her we have to look at Modius.
    I hate the way Modius is presented in the original setting. It makes no sense. In my setting he is a defeated man. Rattled. But not incompetent. He's been spanked and he knows it, relegated to a very embarrassing role. His confidence is shaken and Alicia is his rock. His stalwart companion and supporter. The one he can bounce ideas off of. Confer with. Of course he is being manipulated by...

  • Hmmm you all are changing my mind on Lucien. Maybe I'll use him....not sure yet. There was the advantage of not having to deal with elders in a v5 game but...maybe...

  • Well, lets be honest here. All of CbN 1st Ed was way unbalanced and Gary was really the start for that. I feel like Lucien was just stuck in there as an example of "oh look, vampires are old" and it felt forced and to me didn't make a lot of sense. He's a gangrel, in a city with little to no power or anything really interesting going on. An 1500 year old Kindred just kinda hanging out in a dying city. I feel like Lucien, having watched the fall of Rome would be more....something. But I can't for the life of me figure out what the fuck to do with him. I guess the whole thing just irks...

  • Preludes

    Most of the Preludes were fairly boring. Just kind of getting used to the V5 system. It was also very narrated, digging into the characters, their touchstones and relationships. They were all done separately. And all kind of planted seeds for the upcoming arc. I decided I'd open with Rusted Veins as I'm in no rush to get into Chicago and I'll let the PCs get there on their own - assuming they go. So the Toreador (Tripp) was given a brick of heroin by his gangbanging touchstone while the ventrue (Vinnie) set himself up in Gary and the Nossie (Suzi) kept her head down. Our...

  • Chicago/Gary By Night - Omerta Players probably want to skip this post

    Omerta Players probably want to skip this post...unless you want the whole game ruined!

    Ok so I, a month ago began a V5 Chicago by Night game beginning in Gary IA and I wanted to share this with you guys and mine you for ideas, critiques etc.
    Lets start at the beginning - the planning.

    I started with a base idea. I have 4 storytellers/GMs as players and we all wanted to try V5 with none of us being sold on it so this game began as an experiment for us. To make things simple I figured I'd just run Chicago by Night from beginning to end touching on all points in between....

  • I think this is the first thing you've said about the Sabbat that I totally agree with!
    Cheers!...

  • I personally think that you can't look at the Sabbat and the Camarilla/Anarchs from the same lens. Thats where it looses its potency. It seems like we are trying to fit them all into western ideologies and that simply doesn't work. To me, the Camarilla are the system developed after the Anarch revolt. A system of order and government that is, of course, corrupt. The Anarchs are the young. Those that don't see why those systems are in place. Now the older leaders of the anarchs DO remember and that makes them more effective at rebelling. They understand how the Cams operate and know how to play...

  • We're going to have to agree to disagree sir. I found the anarchs to be utterly useless, refusing to play "the game" and fighting "the man", yet accomplishing nothing. It made absolutely no sense why the West Coast stood, though I must concede, it made for a better story. But as for what they are doing in V5, I guess we're going to have to wait for Modiphius to make up their minds as to what is canon and what is not....

  • I highly disagree. The anarchs to me were always disorganized rabble, standing for a cause yet no way to implement it while the Sabbat I used more like a violent fanatical religious order like ISIS. It created a very tense campaign. One of the best I've ever run! The Sabbat have always been far more organized than the Anarchs. To be fair, I never really had a use for the anarchs. I understood the necessity, and they definitely would exist, but ... lol I guess personal bias came into play. The Rebel Without a Cause thing does nothing for me....

  • I personally hope not. I really like the Sabbat as written in 3rd ed and V20. More "holy warriors with a cause" than mindless bad guys from 1st ed. I never felt that that made sense. How did they never get caught by mortals? I elso enjoy the dichotomy of the Camarilla being slaves with their 6 Laws and yet the Sabbat have 21 or however many there were. But thats just me. In my games, for the mindless scary cainites, I prefer to use wights....

    replied to Tzimisce and Kupala
    In my opinion its everything. Even in the clan novels, Myca's lover (can't remember his name) worshiped the old gods. In my DA game, mortal religions play a HUGE part. With encroaching Christianity on both sides, the old gods are all the people have to cling to. In addition, with the Tzimisce being very traditional and Koldunism based on the "old ways" IMHO its far too deep of a connection to just brush it off.

    So the point you missed in my argument is that Tzimisce are from the land. Their clan flaw ties them to it. And I would hazard to say that most of those who practice...
