  • Sabbat aren't just about violence all the time. Certain Paths frown upon wastefulness of resources and needless death, and that can extend to protecting the mortals in your territory against excessive violence or feeding by other Kindred. Off the top of my head, I can think of the Path of Harmony that states ethics like that.

  • The Diary is heavily in V20 territory, with problems between and within sects, strong focus on Antediluvians, and of course Gehenna happening everywhere all the time. If anyone can figure out how to translate that into VtR, I'd be curious to hear.

    As for the diary itself, I will start off by saying that overall I enjoyed it a lot. It gave screen time to pretty much every clan and sect, just about every region of the world, a good amount of attention to bloodlines, and a lot of interesting suggestions and story ideas for what might be going on in the VtM world now. The writing was...

  • I'm not too familiar with the background of how the book was planned out, but it seems to me to still be an extension of V20, not part of V5 at all. All the introduced chronicle ideas relate directly back to the VtM metaplot, Gehenna and all....

  • Thank you XD This has always bothered me about the metaplot, especially now in Beckett's Jyhad Diary. Don't get me wrong, I love the Diary. It introduces a lot of interesting situations and possibilities, but it does break my suspension of disbelief with how crazy it goes on the Antediluvians (and, by proxy, Caine). I rambled something quite lovely at a friend about it, let's see...

    at this point, the Antes are less like really old and powerful vampires and more like straight up god figures

    and I don't mean that in terms of politics or even religious development, I mean

  • Just as a note, that would be the thing that makes my ST cackle with glee the most, cuz now we'd have to deal with a creature hunting us down without even knowing why. She's just that evil....

  • I've never STed a game, so I will stay far away from backseat-driving your story.

    As for the second question, my own ST usually starts scenes off simply: She'll describe the environment and then let us PCs look around and ask questions about what we're seeing, etc. It's nice because it helps us situate ourselves and our characters, pick up the tone she's trying to give it, and figure out what our options are. My character once randomly decided to browse a late-night store our ST mentioned that sounded like a throwaway piece of imagery (she was describing the street my character found...

  • That seems...like a rather silly restriction. One of the sillier arbitrary restrictions placed on Disciplines. Does the eye need free air flow that badly? It's not like Salubri have to stick their eyeball on the target for it to work.

    Personally it feels like a rule easily homebrewed (changed according to personal preference) if you want.

    Something interesting I learned today: According to the earliest account of King Arthur written by a Welsh monk, Arthur didn't go to Avalon, but instead was preserved by Merlin in a cave deep underground where he still sleeps, waiting to be called upon and awakened.

    I mean...I'm not saying King Arthur is definitely a vampire. I'm just saying I'm suddenly a little more curious what direction that chapter will take.

    replied to How to play with your Beast?
    The way my ST plays/works with Gangrels, they're very in tune with the Beast. Successfully Quelling the Beast can make a target lethargically lose motivation to act, Kindred or mortal, and the opposite ability (when not countered with self-control) will send them running away. Song of Serenity works on Kindred, mortal, and the user to bring a deep sense of peace and prevent Frenzy for the rest of the scene, if not longer.

    Now I will be honest: writing this right now, I already have way more written out than I'm telling myself is actually necessary. Allow me to get rid of all that...
