  • I like to use Lost Boys and Fright Night as inspirations for either Gangrel, or a pack of Sabbat. The scene where they all share a bottle of blood with each other seems very reminiscent of the Vaulderie, to me.

    I thought that's what they were supposed to be?

    As a level 0 character, you're still in your apprenticeship, and haven't yet graduated to a full fledged adventurer, yet....

    How dare they call this movie "The Rise of Skywalker" after the bull shit they pulled in the last 2? They have not earned the right to do so!...

  • Except "Loyalty" sounds to me like they simply pledge themselves in service to a different master, instead of finding their own reason for living. Not saying that devotion to somebody else can't be a possible reason. But it should not be the only option available to those who become Renegades....

  • And that's fine. I'm not saying they have to figure out a way to become human again. But learning to utilize their newfound abilities for the sake of their own reasons, instead of what others tell them they should be used for would be a more traditional fit for this kind of story. Like the scene from Ghost Rider, when Johnny tells the devil that he's going to use the power of his curse to fight against him, rather than become his servant....

  • Which is kind of disappointing, because usually in stories that feature being turned into a science experiment gone wrong, the narrative involves the renegade trying to overcome what's been done to them, and not allowing their creators to dictate their purpose in life.

    But Deviant seems to have avoided that, in favor of making the character depend on others to validate their existence....

    Anybody else think Happy Tree Friends would make for a good inspiration?

    Every day starts out looking bright and cheerful, like everything's going to turn out all right for you.

    But as the day wears on, things become progressively worse for you and your friends.

    Ultimately, the day culminates with you all being killed in horrifically gruesome accidents that seem like they belong in the Final Destination series.

    And then suddenly, you're revived, with all injuries miraculously healed, and the memories of your previous death having been erased....

    Ah, well. It was just an idea I had for fun. Hopefully, they can still be big and muscular, though. Really want that Nosferatu beef cake idea made manifest. ...

  • Technically, elders are playable. A vampire's blood potency decreases by 1 for every 50 years in Torpor. You might think this heavily nerfs Elders (I did at first, too), but then I learned that vampire's don't lose the dots on their character sheet they already acquired before decreasing BP. It just means they can't advance further, until they raise their BP again. So you could have a vampire who's over 500 years old, but just woke up from a very long nap. They'd still be very powerful, but they wouldn't have to snack on their fellow kindred to survive.

    As for Touch Stones, I've never...

  • Your mistake was thinking a real vampire would sacrifice an opportunity to advance their own status in kindred society, just because of a Thin Blood's political naivety. ...

  • Well, there are three that I can think of right off the top of my head, but the last two would be primarily speculation, so I don't think I'll be listing them.


    Pooka - Although shapeshifting is my most favorite power in all of mythology, there's another reason I'd pick these lovable tricksters. They are born from dreams of a life free of responsibility and worries. Something which I would sympathize quite strongly with.


    Clurichaun - I love the thrill of a good fight, and I love Celtic music. Taking Clurichaun seemed like an obvious choice.

    I think I remember reading something about vampires being able to make permanent alterations to their appearance by spending Willpower and repeatedly changing themselves over a long period of time. Eventually, they force the change to stick, though I don't fully remember the specific details on how that works in universe....

    The video I linked on the previous page goes on to say Bloodlines 2 will more prominently feature social interaction and establishing contacts then the first game did.

    Very, very eager to hear more details about this particular mechanic! ...

    At first, I was hoping that the mention of "factions" meant the difference between Camarilla, Anarch and Sabbat. But then I heard that 5th edition has apparently split vampire society up into a loose assortment of gangs, rather than unified sects. Now I'm not sure how it will work in the grander scheme of things.

    It's also possible that each of the playable clans might be its own independent faction, and you're competing to see who emerges as the dominant power in Seattle's blood trade.Though that seems unlikely, as that would mean they'd have to almost completely rework...

    Well, I definitely remember it mentioning that most of the body's fluids with the exception of that used for pigmentation and saliva is converted into vitae. As well as the vampire's body starting to wither and shrivel if they allow themselves to starve. But I don't recall anything about loss of body fat.

    But if that's the case, maybe I should get embraced, as part of an easy weight loss program! ...

    So we know that Bloodlines 2 will allow you to choose different body types for your character. Unfortunately, we don't know much about what that entails. Whether they are a pre-set option, or if the game has some kind of slider system that allows you to customize your look. Regardless, I've come up with some concept ideas for characters I would like to play in game.


    Nosferatu: Very Muscular - while the emaciated beggar is an iconic body type for members of the Nosferatu clan, I'm amused by the idea of how different it would be to prowl the sewers as a roided out monster. Maybe...

    You might be able to do so in Bloodlines 2, since I believe they said you can focus on your own advancement in kindred society, instead of trying to find out answers behind why you were embraced, and by who. I really, really want to be able to establish my own power base in this game. Even if it's just a small territory!

    And yes, you will have the option to customize your haven. One of the special versions of the game even comes with some free decorations to put up around your home!...

    Perhaps, but I've been looking at the previous Elder Scrolls games (I started with Morrowind, never got to play the first 2) and I've noticed a recurring pattern. Every sequel in the series keeps reducing the amount of content available for players to actually role play with, in favor of improving the graphics. If I remember correctly, Daggerfall actually let you select your own background, which would have a tangible effect on specific creatures in the world. For example, if you had a previous relationship with Daedric Cults, then such creatures would have been less hostile towards you.

    The map for Daggerfall was so massive, it took 3 days to walk from one end of it to the other. Ah, the days when Bethesda actually put effort into their game design, instead of depending on modders to finish their work for them......

  • I like to take inspiration from Clan Gangrel in regards to this concept. Their signature discipline is being able to shapeshift into (mostly) different animal forms. And as a clan, they have a closer connection with their Beast than any other.

    Using that, I like to think of disciplines as having a sort of spiritualist mentality to them. It's not something as simple as biology, because there's no way a person should be able to outrun a speeding car on bare feet, or lift a 500 lbs dumpster with one arm. The vampire is channeling some kind of mystical power into their mind and body,...
