    replied to Sunlight protection
    Remember though that you need 5 successes on the roll to stay awake to be able to act for a scene, with dicepools capped by humanity/path, otherwise it is successes=turns. And that is in effect even underground/deepsea where sun cannot be seen, it merely rising causes the fatigue to set in. Failing the roll puts you to sleep untill sufficient danger/disturbement allows you to roll again. Botching the roll puts you to sleep untill evening or final death so suit or no it’s gonna be quite risky to even try to act on day time.

    Personally despite any filters on video feed I would force...

  • 1. I love the Kuei-Jin, and have simple solution for most complains about them without actually changing them. Link to my solution http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/m...187#post193187

    2. I love the Baali, especially with the history and factions presented in their Clanbook which I happen to think is one of the best CB’s out there.

    3. V5 never needed to happen. I would have preferred more x20th material for all lines.

  • Personally I think meteors are so much closer to, and likelier to generate, Glamour than Banality and as such any metal taken from a meteor would much more likely be Glamour infused than anything considered Cold Iron. After all meteoric metals and weapons forged from them are the stuff of legends.

    I believe Cold Iron is meant to be the earliest type of wrought iron, the so called charcoal iron, that in the past depending upon the skill and experience of the smith was of varied quality. If the charcoal content was left too high it was brittle and a sword made of it would shatter on...

    replied to The Curse of Vampirism!
    To emphazise tee Curse aspect of Vampirism you should also be very strict about following Frenzy and Rötchreck rolls and rules. That is demand rolls when insulted, humiliated, hungry and Rötchreck when ever there is a sudden encounter involving fire, servant turn the corner walking with a candle or a guard bringing the torch closer to see your face better Etc. The Beast is a huge part of the Curse side of things afterall.

    And do remember that even after a succesful roll to resist the Beast you still need to roll a few times more to gather the 5 necessarily successes to avoid succumbing...

  • As for the LARP aspect of Darkening I would suggest your Elder hiding it’s effects through Obfuscate thus removing the need to represent it’s effects with makeup.

    Edit: And when playing Assamites in general not elders remember that being only few years undead merely darkens your skintone to more resemble living tones, few decades increase this to tanner skin effect thus meaning that in LARP conditions such effects just mean you do not need any make up effects as your natural skin tone will work fine.

    replied to Cold iron questions
    I would suspect that it would depend onthe strength of the Freehold and the need of your plot, it would also like end up destroying who ever dumped it into the Balefire. Nothing like the Chimerical nuclear explosion caused by the Crowbar somehow smuggled into the Dreaming but very likely an explosion reaction would occur.

    In 2nd edition the description of Cold Iron included the following line:

    But I do kot seem to find similar line from C20. In any case I would suspect that the Freehold and it’s Glamour infused area would somehow react to the presence of Cold Iron....

  • Sorry to say but this is blatantly untrue when tallking about V20. V20 core has under the appearance section the following line:


    In V20 this is further supported in Lore of the Clans where it is finally given a name and mechanics and it is, I think for the first time officially called out to possibly be the original Curse of the Clan levied by Caine. You can find all this in Lore of the Clans p.30.

    The line I quoted on V20 is also present in revised and further explored in CB: Assamites revised.

    It is also present in V20DA where it is mentioned in...

  • I have always read it like Monalfie, though reading it as a speedbump would make for a bit more forgiving game. In other words I personally think the Monalfies interpretation to be both RAI and RAW but if interpreting it as a speedbump suits your game style better go with it at your table. Such an interpretation would have saved me, both as an ST and as a Player, a lot of trouble over the years and would have suited certain games better. So YMMV.

    Edit: After revised brought us different types of damage I have been much more lenient with Bashing though, generally meaning that at my...

    The Accursed (I know the name needs work, but couldn’t remember any suitable fairy type at the moment)

    Birthrights
    • Form of the Beast: The Accursed are bestial forces of nature each one different from another the curse twisting them according to their nature. Some become huge bear like brutes while others are much more lithe serpents. Their bestial forms give them +2 points to spend amongst physical attributes as they please. These dots may bring the Attribute over five dots and even when they do not they raise said Attributes maximum rating with the same amount.

  • You sure about this one? Blood Bond rules fail to mention it nor did I find any reference to it in the Embrace section on a quick flip through of V20. Where as even Proxy Kissed Merit from CB: Giovanni takes former Blood Bonds into account and leaves you to handle them post-Embrace since there it is explicitly stated you may be Bound to both your former Regnant, or Regnants, in addition to your new sire.

    The only way to shatter the Bond is generally through abstinance, death of Regnant or Vaulderie, and some rare Blood magic Rites....

    replied to V20 - experience rates
    I give xp per session longer downtimes/torpors might get some xp depending on the game but they are excellent opportunitites for spending xp collected.

    We also tend to spread xp around according to what the characters have been doing so that character progression feels a bit more natural, though it does tend to mean it is slower to raise Disciplines, attributes and other expensive or already high stats.

    Then again despite being old and having families and children we tend to play several times a week so progression can still be somewhat fast.

  • Personally the old book Ghouls: Fatal Addiction is one of the better books of VtM and definately worth a read. V20 Ghouls and Revenants is again in my personal opinion, though there has been plenty of differing opinions on this unlike with the old book, a good book on Ghouls & Revenants though the mechanics in there are scattered around and not always obvious which is kinda sad. I’d recommend the first for general read through and insight into Ghouls and the second for those with V20 and wishing to ST an all Ghoul story.

    Proxy Kiss as it is is a Giovanni thing but file off the...

  • If they do not allocate Discipline points towards it then they either have not learned it during their Ghouldom or have been purged of such knowledge and power by being too long without vampiric Vitae before their eventual Embrace. In other words I wouldn’t give them any discounts and I would require a teacher. But that is just me so YMMV. The Extra Clan Discipline (5 point) Merit itself, if using that instead of the Proxy Kissed to represent previous Ghouldom, does not require you to buy the Discipline itself at chargen but like said I personally, especially if the justification for the Merit...

  • If my memory serves me right there is a Giovanni Merit which represents characters background as a Ghoul called Proxy Kissed. It has two levels a 5 point and a 7 point one, I’m throwing the numbers out of memory so they are propably wrong, the cheaper gives you one point of Potence in addition to your normal beginning disciplines and the more expensive version gives you a dot of Fortitude as well, if I remember correctly, but you also start at various levels of Bloodbond in addition to the one level you have for your sire. I’d check that Merit to keep chargen at level playing field.

  • 1. If the Ghoul receives Vitae regularly enough from the 5th generation then that Blood defines his/her limits, it does not matter which vampire original made him into a Ghoul. Only the Blood matters.

    2. According to V20 Ghouls & Revenants they start loosing their disciplines one point per Discipline per six months without any Vitae in their systems. So a few month break in Vitae supply doesnt yet affect the Ghouls disciplines.

    3. Embraced Ghouls retain all their learned disciplines upon becoming a vampire and are only as restricted in further development as any vampire,...

  • About the Baali.

    Baali are divided by two philosophies and into four factions. The opposing philosophies are Infernalism and Demonology, the first is about serving infernal, or other outside, powers and giving yourself to their causes while the latter is about learning about infernal and other powers and enslaving them.

    Of the Baali elders Nergal represents Infernalism in that he has given himself completely to a Child called Namtaru and seeks above all to awaken his master. Moloch represents the Demonologist side of things in his efforts to steal the Childrens powers...

    Just thought that this thread could be relevant. It is about changes that D20 would need/be better with.
