    replied to V5 new preview is out!!!
    Eh, the Camarilla has really always been painted as saying 'Oh, the myth of them waking up and devouring all vampires is just a myth' in equal measure to 'the Antediluvians are not real'. It's their narrative and something that they control within the sect, but also something that they believe from on high; they've heard the stories of deaths of various antediluvians, such as the Lasombra's wild tale of killing theirs, and it fits the first part of their chosen narrative. It's also I feel a part of why there's a plot reason for many Elders to be off-screen, leaving the uneducated neonates and...

    Okay, I'll clarify: I, and the people I have went over the playtest with, don't find a single die roll before you roll for a Discipline activation. It's as intrusive as erasing a blood point dot off your character sheet. As far as Hunger dice (nitpick: die is the singular, dice is the plural) into your normal pool.... you're already rolling dice, it's fairly trivial to replace some with another color or slide a couple to the side and roll them separately. I mean, VtM earlier editions roll 4 dice for combat and people seem to be ABSOLUTELY COOL with that level of extra dice rolling.

    Go reread the Celerity writeup and Hunger from the alpha. You roll to Rouse when you use certain Disciplines, yes, to see if you Rouse your Hunger by drawing on the Blood too much. And if the same rules as the alpha Hunger Roll are the Rouse rules, it's one freaking die to roll before you roll your Discipline effect if there is a roll for it. You roll a Hunger Roll. If you roll a 1-3 you increase Hunger by 1; if you roll 4-10 you do not increase Hunger.

    From the alpha:


    Whenever you roll anything else, you replace one die with a Hunger die (generally a different...

    Except we have no evidence that that's the case. In fact, the context for Disciplines, using Celerity as an example from the book preview, would directly indicate that not all powers have to Rouse. Celerity was extensively re-written from the pre-alpha and alpha version where everything cost a Rouse. I would expect some base Auspex things like Heightened Senses not to cost a Rouse. Sure, Spirit's Touch and Telepathy and such might cost a Rouse... but they're actively drawing more on the Blood to do the effect, which makes sense, as vitae has always been nebulously magical and the source of most...

    Because V5 isn't building from the metaplot-agnostic V20. You should just really not even think about V20 in relation to V5 until we see something that references anything written specifically for V20 like Anarch Sorcery or those Justicars and such. They've stated that V5 is building from the end of Revised, where that did happen.

    And I don't get this whole 'having hunger and having to deal with humans makes political play/running around with Beckett/etc. inviable'. I just... don't get it. People talk about Hunger like you're going to be at Hunger 5 ALL THE FUCKING TIME. And you...

    Which lines up with the developers talking about the most playable options being ancillae and neonates. It's also pretty easy to lean away from political countercultures and other things can become inspiration....
