    V5 Why not Better Dark Vision?

    Unless I've missed something in the new rulebook, vampires still don't have better vision in the dark in V5 as a base natural thing.

    When Requiem 2nd Edition came out one of the changes they made was to give vampires a naturally better dark vision (and subsequently revamp Auspex etc).
    I thought this was a really good change not just because all vampires share the night (and this is even more of a thing in Dark Ages settings), but because Nosferatu are a thing.

    The first Vampire character I ever played was a Nosferatu so I always found it very puzzling how come...

    Ok, so first of all Lasombra have had an antitribu in the Camarilla, including at least one prince in Italy. Those Lasombra tend to be elders and their childer, so they're a minority before the V5 events.
    However, there were also Lasombra anarchs (see Guide to the Anarchs from Revised, pg 36) and even though Old Clan Tzimisce were nominally affiliated with the Sabbat not all of them were active Sabbat members. There were also independent Tzimisce (mostly metamorphosists and mostly elders, again). Point is, not 100% of all Lasombra and Tzimisce were in the Sabbat - and since about half the...

    As usual, thank you for the insightful post. That certainly sheds a lot of light and perspective on it for me.



    I do disagree with this part, though. I'll be nitpicky, I know.
    The Sabbat have their own internal political machinations, power structure and complex intrigues. They have political factions, power positions, territorial disputes and influence interests. They have as much Game of Thrones material as the Camarilla if not (ironically) more so, due to being built in a far more social manner than the Camarilla.

    In fact, I would argue that the...

    V5 Sabbat

    Before Paradox started hurtling White Wolf like a grenade with the pin taken out, White Wolf were talking about Camarilla and Anarch guides being in the pipeline but made no mention of a Sabbat guide that I'm aware of (or of Independents).

    I mentioned before that since I'm a Sabbat player/ST I felt very disappointed to see my favorite Clans and Sect completely erased as base playable factions (unlike previous editions).
    I'm also very out of the loop in terms of catching up with what which dev said where and when, so I don't know if there's any plans for us to have a Sabbat...

  • I couldn't find any rule that says that in the book, but it does make more sense. Are you sure that's what the book says?
    Ok, so basically if you wanted to get a certain Flaw or multiple Flaws beyond the required 2 dots, you don't have to pay anything for those but neither do you get any points back, right? So for example you can have Adversary 2 and then willingly take on Dark Secret 1 and the Ugly Flaw "for free", did I get that right?

    Ok, this is much better.



    Ok, so the interchangeable way they use "gain x dots in x" and &q...

  • *sigh* V5 Character Creation Question Advantages Flaws End Me

    *heavy sigh*
    Ok, I know I'm late to the "party" with V5 since I just now got it and I'm not gonna bring up the whole Sabbat thing, I'm not gonna go off the rails into a tirade about "Camarilla Mains" and "Cam-and-Anarch pandering devs" or anything crazy like that. I'm not gonna go into the "whose idea was it to make it so that Sabbat are linked to current real world monsters ISIS" thing or the other horrific current event exploitation.
    I'm not gonna go into how I, as someone who lives in the Middle East, feel a little bit left behind in terms...
