  • ^ What the Primo said.

    Also because Anarchs...aren't really the best at anarchy? Without a solid foundation for their ideals, they tend to fall back to the same hierarchies and rules that the Camarilla has. Except they call their Primogen "Barons" and don't have official, dedicated Sheriffs and Scourges to keep everyone in line, or Courts where they can keep an eye on everyone. An enterprising Ventrue might easily step into the power vacuum by offering stability - the kind of stability the Anarchs are already sliding back towards.

    Honestly, most Cam clans could...

  • My PC partially blood-bound a mortal detective to heal her from certain death by Sabbat attackers. She then helped the detective escape the city so she could avoid becoming a ghoul. Luckily the detective was unconscious at the time of healing, and somehow words like "Kindred" and "vampire" and "drinking blood" were never brought up, but it's still hard to ignore glowing red eyes and a supernaturally healed collar bone and arm (broken from a previous incident).

    My PC has no idea where the detective went or what she's doing now, but PC's bf educated her...

  • Yeah, Blood Potency and Vitality levels are hard to compromise. I'll need to devote some time to looking at just the Blood Potency system to figure that out, but I don't want to overcomplicate things by completely overhauling it. For the moment, the only way it interacts with Vitality is that if Vitality rises too high, BP automatically falls. One important change I'm making is that BP does not automatically go up with age. That is getting tossed right out in favor of characters being able to raise BP for themselves. And lose BP for themselves.

    To help it with the changeability, I'm...

  • Yes, the Covenants do get their special Disciplines Cruac-style. There are very few Disciplines in VtM that are canonically exclusive to one clan anyway - even ones that are unusual to find outside a given clan can generally be learned if a Kindred is young enough/dedicated enough. For example, there are plenty of non-Tremere canon characters who are on record as knowing levels of Thaumaturgy.

    Mm. I'm not necessarily trying to make Vitality too many things, though I am probably explaining it too many different ways, in part to get a better sense of it for myself. I'll have to fix...

  • Thank you I totally agree about Blood Potency > Generation. But I wanted to leave the possibility open that kindred could still "believe in" Generation, from a cultural perspective, and try to toss it around to claim rank, etc. From a traditional Judeo-Christian perspective, the idea of being weaker/worse than the generation before you because you're further away from the Father makes sense.

    Technically, VtR does the best job of making Humanity an "act human" system with their Danse Macabre. They just do it in a way that makes it clear vampires can only parrot...

  • VtM/CoD2E Humanity Replacement - Vitality

    Major Source of Inspiration: WoD's Malkavian Dr. Netchurch
    Other Sources of Inspiration: CoD 2E Integrity system, CoD Werewolf 2E Harmony system, CoD VtR Blood Potency system

    This section is very unfinished because...well, I'm one gal doing this in my spare time for fun. Will try to update as I come up with more material. Input and ideas are welcome.

  • VtR Elements in a VtM World: The Mashening

    Disclaimer: This is not meant to be a serious, usable fan-canon. This is simply a pet project and thought experiment for myself, trying to couple VtM lore and aspects of the VtR system. It does employ a few elements of VtR-specific lore, but all of this should be considered in the context of the VtM universe, with VtM clans and histories. I've drawn inspiration from some WoD and CoD sources such as the Vampire Translation Guide and Beckett's Jyhad Diary.

    So what do I like about VtR?

    1. No Gehenna. Or rather, the idea that if there is a Gehenna conspiracy, it's neither
