    replied to Mortal Vs the Night.
    The Revised Edition Players Guide has a section on playing mortals, including reasons why people get mixed up in Kindred society and ways they can survive, at least in the short term.

    Vampire: The Requiem Second Edition also has a section on mortal player characters, including mortal-specific Merits that could be adapted for a Masquerade game and more advice on ways to involve them. Reasons include a reporter being too high-profile to eliminate, supernatural abilities that might be lost with the Embrace, and a family line protected by a Kindred elder.

  • There's Songs That Are Actually About Vampires but it was last updated over a year ago so I can entirely understand not finding it.

    replied to Blood banks and feeding
    Due to the various concerns such as storage, separation and additives Nosimplehighway listed above, it might be better for a vampire to take a cut from a donation centre rather than a storage bank - which means a Herd-equivalent amount is available but it's the good stuff, rather than a large amount which has been treated for hospital use.

    Perhaps a private clinic in a bad part of town where people sell blood rather than donate it, pretty much no questions asked. (Maybe not as far as accepting it in jars, as seen at the start of Blade II...)

  • In my last V20 game I had a Primogen including some speakers for their clans but most of them had other positions, and included one Malkavian NPC because I had a Malkavian player character - and to be honest he was more like a Mekhet from Vampire: The Requiem second edition with the serial numbers lightly filed off.

    Matthew Elliot, occult researcher, who didn't have a Derangement per se but instead had some anxiety issues because he couldn't turn his Auspex off, leaving him decidedly twitchy about loud noises and being handed unfamiliar objects.

    replied to Fanfiction
    It's not exactly fan fiction, being (a) an Actual Play report and (b) by Rose Bailey before she started on the line, but Never Let Go is a good place to start.

  • Discuss what kinds of character are and aren't suited to the chronicle. If you want to keep things simple and just use the Camarilla clans, for example, that's fine. If you want to cap Generation at 10th (or at 13th, or higher!) that's okay as well. If you only want the players to use Humanity and not keep track of Paths of Enlightenment, and so on.

    You can try to include everything, but seven clans of vampires, plus Caitiff, ghouls and mortals is plenty to start with.

    Work out a niche for the players' characters to occupy, whether it be neonate outcasts or anarchs, agents...

  • Vampire: The Requiem signature characters:

    Frances Black is MirrorGirl! But won't answer to it.
    Jenny Shakes, the Mogul and Mrs. Robinson already use different names than they were born with.
    And Count Dracula is Count Dracula. I'm sure as hell not going to argue with him about that.

    Persephone Moore is Prodigy! Or Prodigal depending on who you listen to.
    Scratch is The Unspoken!
    Solomon Birch is Absolution! And would probably run with it.
    Trey Fischer is The Fisherman!
    The Unholy is... okay, The Unholy is The Unholy!

  • Most anarch and Camarilla vampires use their Disciplines sparingly. Crank up the horror side of vampires with weird uses of common Disciplines that stretch the Masquerade without quite breaking it:

    Animalism to have a swarm of rats attack a "safe" location, preferably overrunning and killing a ghoul or other familiar NPC.
    Auspex to attack while using blinding flares.
    Celerity to chase down anyone trying to escape.
    Dominate to send a horde of confused people to get in the PCs' way. Zombie-like moaning and clawing at their clothes optional.
    Fortitude...

  • 5 might be an issue if someone's playing a Tremere and has expectations about what they'll be like, but the whole clan being a catspaw works well otherwise. Likewise 7 for Assamites. Everything looks the same initially but it might catch a player out, so something to discuss with them perhaps. (Tzimisce aren't as centralised, so a cult of Antediluvian-worshippers isn't as big a change.)

    8 appeals to me but might be a slight tonal clash.
