  • I'm not sure I understand what you mean, could you clarify a bit more?

    Hardestadt would certainly look for certain qualities in a childe that apparently Pieterzoon met, but does that mean every Ventrue would have Embraced Pieterzoon if given the chance?

    You think if you just dropped Tyler, Jack and Bell at the same spot anywhere, they'd go in the same direction, let alone work together?...

  • OK, I'm not going to keep belabouring the LCN point further than this, but I'd suggest the 10-15 year sentences are one's many mafia guys would be willing to tough out, especially if they're still relatively young. Regardless, many of those sentences are given out based on info that informants have provided - not everyone gets an offer. The goal of using informants is to catch more co-conspirators than the number of informants, after all. But again, it was just an example.

    Ultimately, if you believe thousands of years of Embracing mortals raised under different societal norms - even...

  • You're looking at it wrong, though. Compare the number of collaborators to the number of members facing long prison sentences, and you'd get a better indicator of where the rubber meets the road.

    Edit: I'd also like to add that the lore is what has happened or what was, not what is or will be. Things change, even in conservative groups, as the newer generations don't honor all of the same things as much as the old breed once did, even if they give it the same lip service.

  • Yes, that's what the Lasombra stand for, but it is also a clan composed of individuals, and individuals are almost always divergent to some degree or another.

    I mean, look at what La Cosa Nosta supposedly stands for: secrecy, loyalty, respect, and family. But when a member is looking at spending the rest of his life in prison, those ideals ring awfully hollow, as they often rat out their co-conspirators....

  • I've loved the Sabbat in every rendition, and I don't have an issues with them as "monodimensional antagonists" in the current Cam-Anarch-centric setup, as this is how they would/should see them. We'll see how they actually look once the book comes out.

    My point was that they haven't been "Requiemized" into a version of the Belial's Brood or VII. This is how they were originally concieved....

  • As for the Ministry/Lancea similitude, for sure, I can see the influence, but the Setites were already starting to go that way in V20, where vampires from any clan could convert to their faith and not just follow, but actually become full-blooded Followers of Set themselves.

    I don't think the Invictus had any influence of the Camarilla. There's no need, since the Invictus is heavily inspired by the Camarilla in the first place. It seems pretty clear the current state of the Camarilla is to open space for the Anarchs to play in, while emphasizing how much the SI has traumatized Kindred...

  • I'd say the Sabbat are back to being the unknown boogeyman they were in 1st Edition.

  • Not only is it a stretch, it's wrong. I like Requiem, but I love Masquerade. I think V5 is best iteration of the game yet. And it *is* Masquerade, and has all the things that make Masquerade identifiable. To me, it still clearly feels like Masquerade.

    And of course "V20 still exists" is legitimate response, because that was precisely why WW wanted to seperate the core rule book from the Camarilla/Anarch/Sabbat lore books, so that players can just use the metaplot with the old rules, if they'd prefer. It was a point they made in one of their earliest presentations. Saying...
