  • V5 is a good idea executed in the worst way possible.Forcing the players to play The True Way of Having fun with restrictive mechanics and a Metaplot that infantilices the setting

    What we need is a V30 or V5.5 designed with a system of tiers a la CoD for the players to play however they fucking want
    • Tier 1=Hunger dices and angst games that enforces personal horror
    • Tier 2 and 3=Hunger pool/blood pool , political horror and trenchcoats with a katana
    The another thing we need to change is the metaplot becoming less infatilized becuase what V5 has done by eliminating the war of ages...

    Tecnically i would just import Demon the descent as i don¨t want Abrahamic religions to be the absolute true of WoD and I will make the classic demons still be there as spirits and eldrith beings of previous universes who almost descended callled the Qli and that need to fuse with a soul to materialize themselves outside a caul.They are the reason why the baali have daimonion.

    The objetive of the Qli is to destroy the universe or rule it as a hellhole as a vengance for the pain of the caul.Some of them are corrupted by the experiences of the human soul they fused wich changes their...

  • Don´t try to force the personal horror , the jokes and laughts are great in fact they are good feedback (you and your players are having fun) the personal horror will happen naturally the more they love the world you build for them becuase they will start to care about what it´s in it.Now about the time thing is something that happens to all ST and players.When you are having fun the time goes too much fast and no matter how much you prepared the session scenes will always take more or less than what you expect becuase players are improvisating all the time and that forces the ST to improvise...

  • ALERT SPOILERS FROM BECKETT JYHAD DIARY

    One of the posible endings of beckett jyhad diary involves Suketh awakening from torpor thanks to beckett and taking control of the clan demanding to the members the expulsion of all the other clans from North Africa.He doesnt do nothing while his clanmates and progeny start diying left and right eventually the followers of set decide to not obey his antediluvian and declare themselves the children of the revolution stopping to adore suketh who decides to slip into darkness as a puppet master.

    Suketh level 10 discipline is being...

  • It is not about having more disciplines but about having more options with the same dots and proving that all those counter stategies are not perfect and can easily be countered back

    Some paths are good and the rituals are a nice adition to them but others like conjuration are broken....

  • The idea was to showcase the amount of options that thaumaturgy offers not a uber thaumaturge .Sorry if the way i wrote the post was misleading.


    The only problem is that path of conjuration actually really is an ACME Catalogue (No ST in his right mind should allow it to it´s players aportation on other hand yes)

    That said I love thaumaturgy but I think there is a great dissonance between how it works (As a box of powers) and how it is written (as a ritual discipline) that´s why I wanted it to be a FULL ritual discipline where instead of following a path you build...

  • ....

    This is disapointing and infuriating.

    Seems like there is no quality control and I doubt that this will change just by replacing one or two faces of the team becuase it seems to be more the fault of NEW white wolf direction triying to impose their vision of the world of darkness than of the writters.

    PD: did this editor work for V5 core? more important is he working on V5 chicago? is the only small hope i have left...

    replied to "Tell me the truth"
    This are some houserules of mine but can help

    What I do is rework "Awe" so it just only adds your presence rating to your charisma and apparence rolls representing mechanically the social pull of the characters with high presence levels.They can fail a roll but they have higher chances of not doing that.

    About the number of succes needed for someone to sing the true I would make it equal to their willpower or their charisma/wits depending of the roll.Add up to +3 diff depending of the damage that spilling the true can make to him , his agenda or the ones he...

    replied to Central theme of Serpentis
    Tecncially it would be more than apropiate to have regional variations of *use* in a discipline , look at the example or rules of requiem 2ED i posted above.With unnatural change you can have claws , wings , spikes and even if you want a serpent tongue or tentacles.You don´t need serpentis if you add certain customization to the disciplines like requiem did in his second edition.

    Another thing wich is what people dislike is the new clans concept being based around a stereotype (Giovanni , Assamite , Ravnos , Settite etc... ) if you are gonna do that just make this clans bloodlines...

    replied to M5
    It can fit as a suplement and would explain a lot of things like the awakening and avatars

    Imagine that the awakening feels random becuase avatars are fallen supernal creatures choosing becuase reasons to fuse with a concrete soul to give them the oportunity to ascend and fight back the exarchs but mages obviusly don´t know this.

    Imagine that despite the supernal existing and reality being more static the magic is afected by consensus becuase it is being tainted by the abyss instead of being pure supernal true.Due to that mages are fighting for stablishing his own consensus...

    replied to Central theme of Serpentis
    I always relationed serpentis with faith the followers of Set being the clan of faith to differenciate it from other disciplines

    But at the end of the day sepentis is just protean with egyptian myths references becuase all the extra clans (with the partial exception of the LaSombra and Tzimisce) are racial stereotypes.The similarities between protean and serpentis are so many that Requiem 2ED mixed them and by the way it´s writting is awesome *-* https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...MZwHJHot7s/pub

    PD:Just my opinion but i would have prefered more bloodlines/variations...

  • Thaumaturgy is like batman belt too many options some of them way better than what you can buy with the same XP and it is also very impredictable becuase it comes with rituals along the paths.

    Also it isnt only good for combat , it is good for everything: prestation , running , prep time , buffing your comrades with rituals , getting clan prestige etc...Some paths are just plain broken (Path of Conjuration says hello)

    Of course a thaumaturge can be beaten it can happen in a lot of ways but he has a great advantaje over his rivals becuase when their enemy has a trump card...

  • For what I have seen is techically the oposite in all the V5 line but this edition is not of my taste

    The only slight of hope I have is put in V5 Chicago and I still have my reservations , time will tell.

    Right now when i want to give a bit of special sauce to the camarilla and the anarch I prefer to pick some requiem suplements and just import from them the ideas i see fitting.

    PD:Anyway thanks for triying and sharing the info.Nice detail....

    replied to Sunlight protection
    The fully isolated rradation suit will work but the vampire will still have to spend WP becuase the day makes him feel dizzy.

    It also draws attention but i can picture a paranoid malkavian elder slepping in a contaiment suit just in case somebody tries to enter his haven during the day. (I would).

    PD:Also talking about sunlight how harsh do people make sunlight in your games? In my games depending of the generation/blood potency you burn faster or slower having chances of surviving around 1 or 2 minutes , the big thing about sunlight is that you cannot activate disciplines...

  • I don´t see the anarchs as a sabbat little , for me The Anarch were always a mix of everything , they had diablerist in their ranks, do gooders , tirants frustrated with the camarilla slow ascent to power , children running away from their despotic sires etc... It was a very chaotic faction and that made sense becuase they where anarch.

    I also actually liked the idea of some anarch barons being equal or even worse than some princes.It made the conflict more grey and tha´s something I love.No faction hold the morally right banner is the best for the world of darkness.The camarilla...

  • This is the worst thing , let´s say goodbye to the grey moral conflict of the World of Darkness

    Let´s welcome a manicheism white vs black conflict where the camarilla are nazi moustauche twirling villains and the anarch are the good guys.

    V5 camarilla wishes it was Invictus.The Requiem covenant was an organization made around the idea of getting power and conservating it not about being "evil conspiracy TM" .I highly recomend the Invictus suplement it is on par or even better to the elyseum suplement for masquerade.Now if WW wanted to make the camarilla more...

    This isn´t about self-censoring is about bad writting

    V5 Infantilices the setting making in manichean mesh without shades of grey where anarch=good camarilla=nazis.Becuase they don´t like moral conflict and need a faction to have the moral superiority like in all those movies directed to teen public but worse.

    Feedback in the form of constructive criticism is needed from the comunnity or from an editor in order for the writters to know when they are doing something bad to improve it.Sadly New White Wolf is ignoring all that.

    On other hand is true that self...
