  • If the Frenzy goal is "kill Bob" then Bob's Idol will fail, because Disciplines can't go against the Frenzy goal.

    If the Frenzy goal is "kill someone" then Bob's Idol will succeed, because Disciplines can redirect the target so long as it doesn't go against the Frenzy goal.

    This is one of the benefits to being able to set the goal, rather than fall victim to a Frenzy where the Beast (ST) picks.

    Dirge is who you really are.

    Mask has nothing to do with mortals; it's what you present to the world, both Kindred and Kine. It seems to be a recurring misunderstanding here, but Mask is not mortal-specific.

    replied to Handling who NPC vamps notice
    Aside from "are they a potential threat?" I see two main reasons a Vampire would take interest in an NPC:

    1. Are they a potential tool?
    2. Do they have some kind of sentimental value?

    Number one includes people with sway or useful skills. It might include socialites and politicians and bureaucrats who can pull strings or forge documents on the Vampire's behalf, or it might include morticians or cops or gangsters who might help the Vampire get access to illicit goods or help cover-up botched feedings. The librarian or occult researcher who knows things...

  • This is a "simple questions" threat, Khanwulf. Given your question is, as you say, subjective as well as inviting some further discussion, you may want to give that post its own thread.

    Don't forget Blood Sympathy. Pinging it once or twice might not be clear enough, but eventually you'll be able to piece it together from that if nothing else.

    Vampires can also pick out clan by tasting the vampire's blood, if they know the taste (pg. 91). Auspex 2 could also do it, debatably.

    While it may be possible to not know your clan, I don't expect that to last very long if you want to find out. Or if anyone else has any reason to try and find out....

  • They very explicitly avoided giving people the ability to have extra attacks per turn in 2e. It really screws up the action economy and makes whatever power or merit that grants it a must-have.

    Celerity does not allow you to attack twice in a turn. You only get one instant action per turn; if you use it for your interrupt, you don't get it on your proper turn.

  • Celerity does not let you interrupt someone with your full turn; it only lets you interrupt with a "brief action." You can move or you can attack; you cannot do both during the interrupt.

    In specific:



    is the mistake here. You don't get to move because you made an Instant Action. The two are unrelated entirely. You get one "brief action" during Celerity's interrupt, not two....

    I'm not sure I understand where the problem is.

    Authoritarian reads:

    "An authoritarian must be on top. She prides herself not in
    competition, but in control. She must assert her superiority and
    dominance whenever possible."

    Those sample actions fit perfectly well within the description of the Authoritarian Mask/Dirge.

    If it's a Mask, they're acting the control-freak to hide their weaknesses and appear strong. If it's a Dirge, they're doing it because they simply are a control-freak. Either way, the actions are the same;...

  • Is there a particular reason why the first dot has no cost, is instant, and lasts all night (does it not work during the day?) with no dice roll?

    Is there any reason you wouldn't just have it on always?

    If it's effectively passive, why not just make it passive?

    And if it's passive, it's probably better as a merit with Eternus as a prerequisite, if you don't want a Coil. Disciplines are active, as far as I know. Some way for the Beast to enforce its will on the world.

  • Mask/Dirge for Vampire gives one for actions with little risk and full refreshes for risk, but that's Mask and Dirge, not Virtue/Vice. It does seem to contradict itself here, so I'm not entirely sure....
