  • This is just one big furry-bait threat, right?
    Well, I'm bailing!

  • I have 3 too, though, I'll skip "Ghouls: Fatal Addiction", since it's already been mentioned.
    Second would be Revised's "Guide to the Camarilla" because it actually managed to turn the Camarilla from "DA MAN!" into a group of desperate people who have been made paranoid by surpassing their give livespan by centuries. It also has some of the best Merits and Flaws.
    Third is "Time of Thin Blood". YES! The meta-plot is bananas! But the book introduced great ideas and concepts for Caitif, like Cleavers, 15th generationers, Dhampirs and it has lots...

    That's exactly what drove me away from V20, the flanderization and especially the treatment of the Ventrue. They feel like the designated "Non-Sabbath bad guys" now. In the "Book of Clans" they are the only clan that is described by an in-character defector instead of a neutral description as if to say "You don't wanna play those!". And that sucks because there was a lot of nuance to the clan. They are cartoons in V20, running around with crowns and scepters. And there is no mention of Lictors, who are the street-Ventrue, who lead from the front and inspire through...

    Another part of the Ventrue that should be noted is a very strong clan loyalty. It's not the forced loyalty of the Tremere or the "we outsiders" mentality of the Nosferatu, but rather a very familial thing. It think the tradition that expressed that best (And made me love the clan even more) is Embrace Night. Basically, its the Ventrue version of a birthday party. Important is that every Ventrue in a city celebrates it and every other Ventrue will come to visit. Even if you are a scrappy, first year embraced fledgling, you have to prepare a celebration in their two room apartment and...

    The Ventrue are my favourite clan, so I'll give my two cents and what I think:
    Old WoD Ventrue are all about knowing something will go down and preparing for it. They gather power because they know that shit will go down. They have a culture of unity and loyalty because they need to stick together for when shit will go down. And they keep the Camarilla together to make sure that other vampires are on their side for when shit will go down.
    Basically all of their traditions, from the Agoge to the oath of hospitality are about that. Getting ready for something. In Revised it was Gehenna,...

  • But that is the problem, isn't it? Why bother coming to play if you are basically Q from Star Trek and can screw over everything and everyone you like. It would get so old quickly and turn into boring power-fantasy nothingness (and not even the fun kind of power fantasy, since you don't have to overcome things)....
