    replied to How big is Lure of Flames 5?
    The progression in Lure of the Flames is that each subsequent fire is many times larger than the previous one, but not orders of magnitude larger. Following on that trend, an Inferno sized fire should be many times larger than a Bonfire sized fire, which i would think is enough to set alight everything in a large room or a small house.

  • Ugh, the notion that all vampire bodily fluids are composed of vitae, or worse actual blood, is one of my least favourite ideas in the setting, since it really doesn't hold up. For example Kindred very clearly do not have vitae saliva, else they could blood bond people by making out, and they most certainly do not have blood saliva, else it would be a huge deal making it very hard to uphold the Masquerade. The fluids in Kindred's eyes are also obviously not blood, else they'd all be blind with red eyes. The problem is that some authors thought it would be poetic if vampires would sweat and cry...

  • Hasn't stopped licks being able to heal minor wounds from being a fairly common interpretation. Just pointing out the side effects for that interpretation, which i consider them positive, but others may feel different.

  • Note that if the vampire's lick can heal minor wounds, this has the effect of reducing the difficulties caused by the Giovanni and Lamia weaknesses. It makes it possible to feed by simply using a sharp blade to open a major blood vessel, drinking the blood as it pours out, and the licking the wound closed. It is not at all pleasant like the Kiss, and makes it difficult to feed stealthily, but it is not as troublesome as biting someone. Personally i consider this a positive feature of letting the vampire's lick heal small wounds, since while Giovanni and Lamia are still greatly inconvenienced in...

    Not sure how a person confined to a light-tight room is going to be able to help with a daytime emergency. Like in the modern day you could coordinate a response using cellphones and the internet, but if you play in any other time period you're basically useless. Personally i would prefer setting elements to make sense across the history of Kindred society, which is the major reason why i dislike the sunlight allergy. While the modern day setting almost works thanks to electric lighting making mortals more nocturnal, the Dark Ages setting completely falls apart if vampires can't be active during...

    CajunKhan is right, the fact that in Masquerade vampires burn in even faint indirect sunlight (RAW even twilight will burn them), and on top of that can't even stay awake when the sun is up, is extremely crippling and completely destroys the setting. In practice nearly all gaming groups attenuate those rules to some extent or another, and handwave away many of the complications, otherwise the game just doesn't work. Way i see it for Masquerade to be the game it wants to be, vampires should only burn in direct sunlight, and feel tired (dice penalty) but are not completely disabled during the day....
