  • Again, the core book has several cities if you want to look over them. The specific cities in core are: Athens, Greece; Beijing, China; Berlin, Germany; Montreal, Canada; Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill,
    North Carolina; San Francisco, California; Swansea, Wales; Tokyo, Japan

    Each one goes into the history of the domain, the status of each Clan present, locations of note, and the local politics.

    I think the goal, though, is more to show how wildly varied Kindred cities can be, rather than give any idea of what "typical" is. Though some are closer to "typical"...

  • 1. Social combat has been revamped as of GMC/2e, so you might have a better time using the system built for this edition rather than trying to shoehorn in an old system. It's a core mechanic now. In the core book(s). Up to you, though.

    2. The core book has a few sample cities for use, if you like, but VtR 2e is fairly deliberately without any sort of canon. It's all suggestion or example for the ST to build off of.

    3. As stated by others, it isn't broken. If you absolutely must, though, there have been dozens of threads full of dozens more suggestions each on how to "fix"...

  • Auspex only ever reveals Obfuscate via Clash of Wills.

    When the goal of Auspex (give the vampire accurate information) conflicts with the goal of Obfuscate (remain hidden), there is a Clash of Wills to determine which goal is achieved. Same as any conflict between Disciplines.

    You are moving goalposts. You said "Most disciplines require the user to establish a baseline condition from the level 1 power and then work up from there to get higher level effects."

    This is absolutely not the case. Protean does not use Conditions at all. One of the powers enhances an earlier power, but that is neither a level 1 power or a Condition. The same is the case for Obfuscate; no Conditions, only powers that enhance and provide additional functionality to lower level powers. As you admit, the same is true of Animalism. The level 1 Nightmare Discipline doesn't...

    This is only the case for two of the ten Disciplines. It is not "most" by any definition of the word.

    Most (though not all) opinions I've seen in this forum, other forums, and reviews is that the Chronicles of Darkness (2e) ruleset is hands-down an improvement over the New World of Darkness (1e) one. Having run both for several years each, I'm inclined to agree. At least for the core materials: I haven't bought a lot of the supplements due to both lack of funds and an apparent steep power creep....

    Likening "more respectful depiction of mental illness" to "total shut-in who can't leave the house" (what I am) as a reason why it's unplayable and a bad idea is both a strawman (constructing your own argument to argue against, rather than arguing against the argument your opponent presented) and offensive (using my personal mental illnesses as an argument against a positive representation of my personal mental illnesses).

    If you are also a shut-in, then again: you do not speak for all of us, and I do not appreciate you trying to argue against positive representation...

    As someone loaded down with their own mental illnesses to the point of being a total shut-in: you did construct an (offensive, to me personally) strawman, and you don't speak for all of us.

    Mental illness is incredibly stigmatized, and it's very comforting to see a realistic, respectful depiction in fiction. If you watch the making-of videos of the aforementioned Hellblade, they consulted with people who suffered the same symptoms displayed in-game (including visual and auditory hallucinations) and all of them, as well, were thrilled to help let "normal" people experience...
