  • I sometimes give the Bubasit the Danislav treatment
    The Danislavs are a now-extinct revenant family that descended from the Kinfolk of the Shadow Lords.

    Originally a noble dynasty with ties to the Shadow Lords, the Danislavs of northern Transylvania fell under the sway of the Tzimisce Florescu, who kept them in his dungeons for the first ten years of their life and conditioned them on serving him. When a pack of Shadow Lords ventured into his domain, they were savagely attacked by their former Kin and only one escaped to spread the tale. Count Florescu was eager to display his...

  • My memories are a bit foggy, but the ghouled animal kinfolk part was just icing on the cake
    After Sutekh had cursed and driven away the Silent Striders,he cursed the Bubasit too as a punshiment for joining the Osirian League and as a result, their lives are forever tied to the soils of Khem, their ancestral home. It is said that if all of the Bubasti of a given generation leave Egypt, that generation will be the last, as a twisted mirror of the Silent Stried's curse "By the names I have spoken, O Lupines, I curse you. I place my mark upon you, that you shall be forever severed from...

    You are Salubri! Most of their kind lost to undead usurpers, the highly desirable Blood of the hunted, three-eyed Salubri is a prize to other vampires. This, and their reluctance to Embrace, makes them rare in the modern nights. They often recruit those on the edge of death, believing their curse can provide the worthy a second chance, and they count some of the most humane vampires among their ranks

    Well... so much for a 2nd try
    I always though Tzimi or settite would be my clan
    Guess I was wrong...

    Not that oroginal, bad still, badass

    "Don't bother running, you'll only die tired"

    But my two favorites are of the Old Clan Tzimisce quotes, from a PG:

    "Thousands of human lives have been taken by my hands. I am a protector of humanity, but my vigilance comes with a price"

    "Old ways do not die. Like old Cainites, they merely sleep, awaiting sufficient blood to reawaken them..."

    You belong with the Hecata! A motley collection of necromantic vampire bloodlines, the Hecata clan are united in the pursuit of a single subject: Death. They are students of the afterlife and resurrectionists of the dead — or worse. Selling their services to the highest bidder, or acting in their own interests, there are few who can hide from the surveillance of those who can summon and command the very spirits of the deceased.

    Okaaaaay... this was unexpected

    started a topic Cynocephaly

    Cynocephaly

    While doing my usual research tour on the net and in books for a new chronicle, I have encountered a strange thing called Cynocephaly
    The characteristic of cynocephaly, or cynocephalus, having the head of a dog—or of a jackal—is a widely attested mythical phenomenon existing in many different forms and contexts.
    The literal meaning of "cynocephaly" is "dog-headed"; however, that this refers to a human body with a dog head is implied. Such cynocephalics are known in mythology and legend from many parts of the world, including ancient Egypt, India, Greece, and...

    Imho, this is Infiltration 101; keep it simple and don't overcomplicate things. ^^



    How true
    Not to mention, the Camarilla, at the end of the day, is always practical and quite pragmatic
    "Eh, okay, maybe he is a Lasombra, but did a pretty good job as a Ventrue Prince"
    Like in the old joke:

    A professor is sent to darkest Africa to live with a primitive tribe. He spends years with them, teaching them reading, writing, math and science. One day the wife of the tribe's chief gives birth to a white child. The tribe is shocked, and the...

    Vitel's extra level of Obfuscate allows him to cloak his lineage, whether mystically or otherwise.
    It's a personally developed power
    Either "made" a new power or modified an existing one (in this case probbaly the Soul Mask (Disguise your aura to appear differently or not at all) power)
    But in this case I strongly suspect, he simply "invented" that one
    You see Cainites of seventh or lower generation may learn Elder Discipline Powers of six to ten dots, with the maximum rating of a Discipline restricted to 13 minus their generation. At such levels the...

  • Please ellaborate a bit, what kind of devil we speak of?
    Satan as the Accuser, like in the tale of Job?
    Or like in the Book of Zechariah where Joshua the High Priest dressed in filthy rags, representing the nation of Judah and its sins, on trial with Yahweh as the judge and the satan standing as the prosecutor?
    The Adversary?
    The Fallen?
    Shaitan? Iblis? Lucifer? Beelzebub? Baphomet?
    Mephisto?
    Devil with a golden fiddle?
    He made a pact with THE Devil or A devil?

    A smart Lasombra would think of this I think
    Especially in the modern age, it is super easy to photoshop or manipulate some recordings where there Lasombra is THERE and conviniently, potential investigators happen to find such an evidence
    Or - after all, we are taking the Infiltrator scenario here- have a Tzimisce buddy, who makes him a few perfect body duble ghoul or even dominated/blood bonded non-lasombra cainite to act as a body double, who can shows up places with mirrors, plaza, etc. or even trained enough to even visit Elysium or such gathering where actually seek out mirrors...

    On the other hand in a crowd, would anyone really notice, you have reflection or not?
    In my humble opponion, Humans are self absorbed to the point, their surroundings became blurred, and the other poeple around them are faceless blobs. Talking with friends or dive in to their phone... even on broad dayligt wouldn't notice soemone who walked pass by them had 0 reflection! And at night, when barely anyone on th streets? Or if there are peoples on the street at night ,you know, the usual bunch, dealers, hookers, beggars, cummuning people late from the work, just want to get home, youngsters...

    Those lizards are love to mess with genetics; they made a rite just to mate with the mamalians after their race want extinct, but before that, tinekred a bit with their evolution to evolve humanity.... not to mention the Kucha Ekundu, some Tallons made a pact with the mokolé to help them breed with the native African wild dogs and the Lycaon pictus is not really in the Cannis genus... basically made a whole new Changer-race

    In my humble oppinion, a Lasombra elder would not send his gangs to do such a thing - a thing that could be suspicious and could be easly track back to him - , but would hire a guy who hires a guy who hires a young guys, who could dare a bunch of kids "bah, chikens! You wouldn't dare to sneak in to that old hosue to smash wondows, mirrors, furintures, etc..." (or to make it even funnier, taunt a Brujah or his biker gang? so if he would be cought? he could drag that camarilla brujah with him "yeah? that guy who broke those things prepared my heaven woked for me and the sabbat all...

    Actually, the lack of mirrors in an Elysium is not something... well... noticable.
    The silvered-glass mirrors found throughout the world today first got their start in Germany almost 200 years ago. In 1835, German chemist Justus von Liebig developed a process for applying a thin layer of metallic silver to one side of a pane of clear glass.
    During the Middle Ages, mirrors were not seen as commonplace items. Instead, they were an indication of status. Early on, mirror cases were seen as works of art-- not just a mean of seeing one's reflection.
    Sure, the first mirrors goes bact...

    Don't forget, Kindred politics are equally part rumormongering in the Camarilla and equaly the web of favors and boons and reputation! Enemies vs friends, allies and influence.
    If you are not a harpy and starts a vicious rumor about someone who is a Lasombra, the Haripes eat you alive, simply because Elysium gossips ands such are their palyground! How dare you try to ruin their reputation? Especially if you can't really prove your accusition!

    Depends of the edition
    Pre-V5, their weaknes was simple: Lasombra vampires cast no reflections. They cannot be seen in mirrors, bodies of water, reflective windows, polished metals, photographs and security cameras, etc. This curious anomaly even extends to the clothes they wear and objects they carry
    But it is not THAT hard to dance around - Vitel done it as a Prince for example. You need to be creative. One of my players took the paranoid "flaw" and always carried a walking stick with a silver, polished knob, to check who have reflections; he had an issue with the souless...
