  • For homebrew, the easiest way to do it without breaking the core system is to build more level 6+ powers as Level 4/5 powers, and use Generation to add how many powers someone can buy. For instance, do it how the LARP and tabletop versions do Generation and Elder junk:
    * 8th Gen allows you to buy an additional power of any level, paying appropriate XP costs, in all Disciplines you can learn. 7th makes it 2, 6th makes it 3, 5th makes it 4 and 4th makes it 5, and 4th makes it 6. So janky Methuselahs at 4th Gen have 10 powers in each Discipline at that point, and can buy the homebrewed Level...

    Prior devs have stated that the previous clanbooks didn't sell well for what they were. I'd lay zero money on them going back to that model.

    The current WW devs also stated that the design methodology was to have things come up where their stories can be expanded upon along with other things, in the detail needed. So I would forsee less clan compendium books and more utility books with a clan in them. Not that we have much clan material left to go, beyond the weird outlier 'we exist because of our Discipline!' bloodlines.




    Not really. We were told...

    Premonition is not infallible, and BJD posits that the leadership is under the sway of the worm, so likely the strongest Kindred there would not have been in their right minds to deal with any accurate premonitions. Also, Premonition is going to give them some visuals related to what's happening but isn't going to be like CCTV or a movie of someone watching a drone from above. Likely the symbolism would've been there and those that saw it didn't have time to react. Assuming older vampires could interpret all the symbolism in such a modern method of war. It's not odd so much as it's unexplained...

  • Hard pass.



    Do this. This city has enough old lore and new changes to build something dynamic.



    This is an interesting direction for it; basically the city as a setting and something like the leadership (Prince and Primogen for a Cam city).

    I'd like to see something South American so we can see Drowned Legacies. I'd like to see something Eastern European to hit 'old places of the world' for Gehenna Crusade content....

  • It's not like Achilli himself made the decision to 'kill off' Masquerade, that would be a whole WW decision, not just him. Same as Dawkins' preference to Requiem; that's certainly Dawkins' preference but he also has to write within the bounds of what WW says to write about....

    One other theory about the Fall of Vienna and the inside job is that it was orchestrated by Karl Schreckt, who talked about issues with the SauloTremere worm and the control it had with the Council of Seven. And Schrekt was high up enough to know some of the ins and outs of everything.

    If she's that dedicated to Thaumaturgy itself, it's possible she actually jumped Anarch and went with the Ipsissimus. What we know about them fits her 'driven by Thaumaturgical development' and 'helping others'. The Ipsissimus Tremere are all about experimentation and advancement of magic...

  • Eh. I don't know why he even keeps referencing them as 'here's what the Sabbat might look like.' They're one specific small group doing their own thing, and aren't reflective of OTHER things we've seen written about the Sabbat, such as the Lasombra's specifics on why they left. They are a bad example to point at and look and say 'see this is what the Sabbat will probably be!' because they're not, in the scheme of what we've already seen....

  • White Wolf doesn't do any writing in house and that doesn't look to change at all, but as lead creative he's likely going to have input on any particular details of how what's in the book fits into Paradox's desired timeline and design for the game as a whole. So it'll be much like it has been, most likely, where they give it a cover to ensure it fits their plots/vision for the line but won't do any actual writing themselves....

  • Logically, most people wouldn't have even seen the drones, there would just have been a boom and then military moving in, like happens, with a cordon later. That's... pretty much how that works. The cover of the bomb that terrorists were working on went off is easily acceptable by the largest amount of the populace. Occam's Razor and all....

  • They did. And people still bitch and moaned because of 'impenetrable Tremere Wards!'

    From the core book:

    In 2008, FIRSTLIGHT analysts identified the Tremere Prime Chantry in Vienna as “Vampire Central” and directed their largest operation to date. A coordinated USSOCOM and Vatican ESOG force augmented with experienced Brazilian hunter-killer teams annihilated the Chantry, destroying it with drone strikes and relic-reinforced ground operations. The official cover story blamed the explosions on ISISaligned terrorists, just as FIRSTLIGHT has concealed dozens of other...

    I posted about what we were told in various interviews further up the thread, but to copy/paste it again:
    * Ways to change up the game and rules, with things to use with the core book, but not replace it
    * Discipline powers and Amalgams (not reprints from existing books)
    * Merits, Flaws and Backgrounds
    * Loresheets
    * Clans (which is one of the delay reasons, it originally went from 13 to possibly 12, the Ravnos are out according to one of the devs and the Tzimisce may be out if Modiphius can't fix the issues with it) including clans from other books like Lasombra...

    There was a more recent email exchange from a fan and Modi, stating further delays due to COVID, and the person who emailed them was told 'before November'. We know it was delayed due to rewrites (which probably took longer than expected, especially with COVID)....

  • [Vampire 5th Edition] Instructional video - what do you want to see?

    So I think I'm going to sit down and do a youtube video for V5, starting with questions and answers about the core book and rules material there. A number of people find the core book hard to read, based on how it's designed and how it doesn't repeat information in places.
    So I'm asking this group, what questions do you have about the core V5 rules you'd want to see covered in an article about the game?...
