  • Honestly, I don't think it's even Rule Zero-ing out certain 1e corebook aspects, when even later books in the same edition pretend they never existed. The emotional deadness fluff was very quickly given the old silent treatment. Most other aspects are pretty easy to remove, like you can remove the Predator's Taint without largely affecting any other sub-systems, and now suddenly you can actually have a semi-functioning Society of the Night without having everyone risk freaking out every time they meet someone new. Other things are a little tricky, like removing the link between capital-M objective...

  • Aye, there are many ways. In addition to mystical ways of avoiding Vinculum, a Prince could Pervert themselves with a trusted compatriot to avoid later Vinculum.

    You can also be an elder without having high BP. You don't have to drink pure Vitae until you're approximately 300 years old. But Blood Potency over years is a guideline, it's fully possible for him to not reach that point for 500 or 600 years. Additionally, if he spends over 25 years (again, roughly) in Torpor, he loses a BP. 25 years is nothing. Perhaps there was a hiccup in his life, and sometime in, say, the 1800s, he...

To make it more interesting for the non-Arisen players, you could give them a Sadikh "main" character, and then allow them to also take control generally of the cult of another players' mummy. This also allows people not playing immortals to get "flashbacks" too, but flasbacks of the cult, not of the character .

    Corpse Mutilation in England

    Fun new article in the Guardian today about a geological dig showing non-cannibalistic post-mortem mutilation of corpses, presumably as a ritualistic way to prevent the dead from rising again. I can't link to it (forum rules and all), but I'll highlight the key points.

    The finds date between the 11th and 14th centuries in the town of Wharram Percy, a well-preserved abandoned village in Yorkshire. There were 137 bone fragments, from at least 10 different bodies, all of which showed cut marks not consistent with butchering, and all of whom were locals based on their teeth isotopes,...
