  • So what exactly is Guide to the Night going to contain? Can I find a list of chapters/topics or could you perhaps post them here?...

    Haha yeah, Louis is someone who's getting that black pill forced down his throat and whines about it, Lestat is someone who eats black pills for breakfast and loves to bathe in his own agony and angst....

    I was just being cheeky. I know why people get it wrong. It's the same people who saw the Berenstein Bears, think Nelson Mandela died in prison and believe it's 'Sex in the City' instead of 'Sex and the City'.

    Oh yeah and while we're at it: no, Darth Vader never actually said "Luke, I'm your father" and Sherlock Holmes also never said "Elementary, my dear Watson" yet people all over the world are convinced these are actual quotes of these characters.

    The Mandela effect is an interesting phenomenon for sure....

  • The Victorian Era ran from 1837 to 1901. The period Vampyr takes place in is called the Interwar Era.

    But aside from my nitpicking, yes, I do agree. I was already running a campaign set in 1888 London and I already had a few time-skips planned. Vampyr definitely made me want to move ahead to 1918 for some Spanish Flu goodness. I was thinking about introducing the Morbus into my campaign for it and linking the spread of the flu to them in the same way it's tied to the Skal in Vampyr. We'll see.

    Aside from that, Vampyr has also provided me with plenty of good art and an...

    I don't wanna be that guy but... it's 'Interview With The Vampire'.

    Why do people always get the title wrong?

  • Let us not forget that this is how the book decides to depict a vampire exposed to sunlight. By the looks of it, this is "slightly" worse than a heat stroke on a hot summer day. :P

  • Can't say I 100% agree there. My oldest and bestest friend is someone I see twice a month to once a week at most. Usually we just do whatever we feel like when we do see each other. Known the dude for 20+ years and our friendship is still going strong.

    It helps that in my game the players started as humans and their touchstones are relationships they already established during the human part of the game, so the relationship is already there, they just have to maintain it. How much of that happens "on screen" is something I kinda wanna leave up to them.

    Do you...

  • That's a rather weird question, given that most of us have no idea what MS feels like, and none of us knows for sure what vampires feel like after the sun comes up (though we could make an educated guess with the info available to us).

  • Well, I'm not the player, I'm the ST. I was asking this for one of my players. But yeah I will have to talk about this with my player, but your feedback is welcome.

    What makes you say maintaining touchstones takes a lot of time and work? How much time should I expect my players to put into their touchstones? How much game time should it take up?

    Personally I'd be okay with my players visiting their touchstones on occasion, or perhaps more frequently when they're going through a personal crisis. I do plan on fucking with my player's touchstones, but only in tandem with...

  • More touchstone questions:

    1. When a touchstone gets detached because of humanity loss, does the vampire still care about that touchstone? Would a vampire of humanity 4 still interact with the detached touchstones next to his humanity 6 and 5 dots,.or only his newest touchstone attached to his humanity 4 dot?

    2. What happens when a detaches touchstone dies? Should the vampire care? Would the vampire care under normal circumstances?

    3. When my humanity 6 touchstone dies, do I have to replace it before I can buy new touchstones for my lower humanity dots?...

  • Questions about touchstones:

    1. What does getting detached from a touchstone mean? Does your character stop caring about that touchstone altogether, or does she still care but simply not gain the benefits from the touchstone anymore?

    Say for example my character has his human ex-girlfriend as a touchstone attached to humanity 6, and my character drops to humanity 5, what happens from a narrative point of view? Does he stop caring about his ex-girlfriend altogether? Or does he still care about her but to a lesser degree? Or does his relationship with his ex-girlfriend...

  • I'd say it depends entirely on the situation. But if the feeding is non-violent it will likely result in the person getting the Swooning condition. But since he's already Mesmerized/Dominated as well, the Swooning won't really add much. Depending on how your storyteller rules things, the Swooning will either disappear at the end of the scene or stay on the victim for a while. In that case the Swooning condition might be beneficial later down the line, but it's not really going to be of much help to you during the scene the victim is Mesmerized/Dominated, since those conditions are already better...

  • I just finished the game. Spoiler free mini-review here:

    The climax of the game felt lacking and rushed. The epilogue on the other hand was pretty long and elaborate. All in all it was a decent game with a decent story. Certainly no Bloodlines, but close enough to keep me entertained.

    I got the "bad" ending because I ate the entirety of Whitechapel before going to the final boss, so London wasn't in the best of state and Jonathan was far from the innocent man he used to be. I was actually quite happy with the ending I got. It felt fitting and satisfying. But...

  • Because each time you go in torpor you encounter a Breaking Point until you drop below Humanity 6.

    Besides, what difference does it make to a revenant? Why would a revenant care whether he sleeps 1 day, 1 month or 1 year between each night? If anything, going in Torpor will make unlife even worse, because Torpor is not a pleasant experience. It's not like you're just sleeping like a human. A vampire or revenant in Torpor has all kinds of fucked up nightmares that won't stop until he wakes up again....

  • Fair enough, but when a vampire suffers the effect of a venom, does he get lethal damage like mortals or bashing because vampires typically downgrade lethal to bashing unless otherwise specified? Sounds like nofather thinks it should be bashing and my gut feeling says the same, but I want to double check to make sure.

    Does this mean that the "snake venom dissolves Vitae" clause from 1e is not carried over to 2e?...

  • I remember reading way back in 1st Edition (either in Vampire the Requiem or Hunter The Vigil, I don't exactly recall) that snake venom was particularly nasty to vampires because it caused lethal damage and snake venom was notorious for burning away Vitae.

    Is this still the case in 2e? How do vampires react to snake venom? Does snake venom do lethal or just bashing damage to vampires in 2e? Does it burn away their Vitae or not?

    Edit: And as a follow up question: When a Gangrel decides to shapeshift into a viper with Protean, does the Gangrel in viper form also inflict...

  • if you paid attention, you'd know vampires in Vampyr don't actually need blood. Blood doesn't nourish them, it only makes them feel good and the blood acts as fuel for their powers. It's people's souls that nourishes a vampire in Vampyr. Every time you 'embrace' someone, you drink their soul, much in the same way diablerie works in Vampire The Requiem....

  • Are you serious? It's one thing to deliberately go chasing after Conditions and admit that in doing so you're meta-gaming. But deliberately chasing after Conditions and then denying that this behavior is meta-gaming, THAT'S absurd. Do you even know what meta-gaming means?

    And I quote:...
