    The character has to be at full-willpower to use the ritual and his permanent willpower is 8 so that's a 7 points ritual cost. But still, that's a ritual that allows him to break the Vaulderie without sacrificing dozen of baby kittens, with no knownledge of Thaumaturgy and a high generation, with no personnal cost but "I'll be really depressed for a weak". Kinda broken if you ask me.

    As I said it depends on the GM, mine gave a ritual to my character that allows him to not only undo blood bonds but also the Vaulderie, at the cost of all his temporary willpower minus one, and not as a campaign end goal (my character's end goal, right now, would be Golconda). But then that's my GM, I as a GM would probably not allow this....

    If your coterie is from the Camarilla you have another problem: your Tzimisce is probably bonded to the sabbat cause, or at least his pack through the Vaulderie. Unfortunatly talking may not be sufficient because of that, so perhaps considers finding a way to break the Vaulderie (but honestly ask your GM, since some would consider this a campaign end goal).

  • I have a NPC who is either H1 or H2, he was recently captured by the PCs and friendly NPCs. One of the PCs may (or may not) have the power to tame the Beast and the local Prince wanted to see if he was, indeed, capable of this. He may or may not become a wights depending on the PC's actions!

    replied to Dark Ages Titles
    I have a home-made fief set in Provence (France) in 1155, during the wars between Provence and Barcelona.

    The local titles I have are :
    • Princeps (the First among the Kindred).
    • Patricius (a title that existed in Provence during the high middle age, inherited from Rome and carried by the most powerful lords).
    Since there aren't that many kindred, most don't have a specific title but can have specific duties. The Patricius of Arles is a Cappadocian and the one from Avignon a very learned (and very calm) Brujah, so both of them are usually the ones in charge of anything occult or...

    replied to ideas for sabbat packs
    Honestly I feel like on a night to night basis, a Sabbat, Camarilla or Anarch rank and file vampire is going to do pretty much the same things: Am I hungry? Do I need blood? How do I get it? If I'm not hungry, do I need money? How do I get it? And if I don't need that, what is it that I like doing? Any vampire can like music and chill in a jazz bar or go to a night club or just watch Netflix at home.

  • My vampire wouldn't, even if the mortal attacked him, but it's because he is a high humanity vampire who tries to be really good and nice to balance the fact that he is sucking blood. Not sure how long this stance will last though, he wasn't always like that and has been much more callous in the past, and once he tires of feeling guilty and weak all the time, perhaps he'll just revert to the old stance....

  • 91) Those two Brujah you really don't want to meet (Dark Age)
    Coriolanus was embraced during the 5th century BC, a 6th gen vampire. A Roman general, he hated the Plebs and was ultimatly ousted by his own people. He turned against Rome, then decided against it when his mother convinced him to spare the city. He was then Embraced by a Brujah who felt that some good roman-hating guy could be handy. Coriolanus has since then been obsessed by betrayal; betrayal by your troops, your allies, your fellow officiers or your Lord. At the end of the 8th century, he embraced a young lord who was "betrayed"...

    An abomination is ranking pretty high on the Snowflake Scale!

    At 10 on the Snowflake Scale, I have this: An tremere antitribu Caitiff who was immune to Domination, blood bonds, and anyone who drank his blood was immediatly free of all blood bonds (including the Vaulderie) and had his humanity restored. Needless to say the poor guy lived a grant total of 2 months despite being protected by a former-Sabbat pack, including two Elders who were 800 and 1200 years old. The PC Tremere spent the whole game trying to get a drop of his blood for testing and is now hunting the antitribu sire:...

    Honestly I ignore 100% of the background regarding WW2. I juste find it tasteless and once I read that apparently it was OK to embrace Himmler as a Tremere antitribu after 1945, I washed my hands of this and decided none of that exists. Furthermore, the Tremeres already have enough skeletons in hidden in the closet, we don't need to make them pro-nazi.

    Blood control doesn't require the target to be a Tremere. Sure, Tremeres are weaker as far as blood bonds go, but you just have to do the trick twice instead of once... if the apprentice is living in your Chantry, that can't be that...

    It's in Blood Sacrifice: The Thaumaturgy Companion, p55. I don't have it so my source is the White Wolf Wiki :


    So yep, pretty rare, and mostly in parts of the world where the House is weak, so probably not in Europe or in America. I find interesting that they recruit Ravnos since they have a rare discipline.

    Do these vampires become Regent, though? I don't think so. I can't quote the page but I am quite sure that Clan Book Tremere stated that very few Tremere become regents anyway. Most remain apprentices of the Seven Circle, and some can't even reach that rank....

    I am currently working on a setting for a full-Tremere team! We haven't started yet but I am thrilled by the possibilities.

    Pros for the full-Tremere team:
    • The Tremere are the only one who have a dozen in clan disciplines since Thaumaturgy can lead to a lot of things.
    • CHANTRY PLAY! Never forget that a Chantry is a lot of work. Who will be responsible for keeping your Chantry safe? For the library? Is someone in charge of bringing blood or money? If your Regent is kind of an hermit, is one of the PCs tasked with going to Elysium once in a while? Is your Lord/Pontifex in favor of

  • Dark Age characters :
    82) Your great-grand mother was Saulot's childer. No, she isn't you great-grand sire! She is your human ancestor, a rare case of vampire-turned-human-again after she reached Golconda. Now you have a bunch of Salubri descended from her who believes that the sacred blood of Saulot runs into your veins and, well... now that he's dead, the value of said blood just sky rocketed.

    83) Your Salubri Sire became human again and had children of her own. Now, you must protect them at all cost. The problem is that the one you are supposed to protect right now is a young,...

    replied to Dominate Subtly
    Concerning discipline and the power of blood, do you think Dominate can work on someone with a lower generation if the vampire allows it? Let's say I want my memories changed, can I ask my Childer to do it ?

  • I am of the opinion that a character never has too much XP but then, I bumped a lot of points into stuffs like dancing, empathy and expression so my Brujah could actually hunt without defaulting to super drunk people (since he has high humanity and cannot feed unless the human "consents", or at least consents to sex). The GM wrote the character as a very strong warrior at the beginning, but the problem is that once I read the description of the skills, I actually wondered how the hell this Vampire survived for 60 years with no skill to lie, seduce, or actually do anything that didn't...

  • I love to include at least one historical figure when I am the GM, mostly because I used to be a GM for historical games only. That's because an historical figure can be very useful to help with the setting, or at least that helped me in the past as an "anchor" into a time period. Erwin Rommel has been my fav anchor for the 1914 to 1945 period because he's famous, but not Hitler-famous, and was more or less easy to approach and talk to.

    For Vampire, however, I think you need to consider two questions :
    • Is it interesting for this character to be turned into a Vampire ?

  • New WoD setting for a sandbox campaign

    Hi everyone!

    I am currently working on a sandbox campaign for my friends... but the thing is, one of them played a lot of VtM in the past, an another one has been reading a lot these past months. Furthermore I want to play in Lyon (France), and, well, we already played there in the France by Night version, so if I want some novelty I need to step away from the books. The setting of the campaign is that all the players are going to start as very young Tremere apprentices in a new Chantry. The campaign includes one Praxis metaplot (the Childer of a former Prince is plotting against...
