    There is no scientifically demonstrated correlation between intelligence and autism, I am sorry, it is a false myth. Furthermore, what it is intelligence? The psychologists, and I am, can not converge in only one description of the term. I am a fan of the malkavians my self, but I can not blind me to the misconceptions they led to most of the people.

    I share and understand the Azraelfirestorm argumentation, when he talks about superpowers I think he refers to the high intelligence that is related with being crazy in lot of movies, like A beautiful mind, when in fact it is the exception. The divine touch, the vision of madness as something related with the gods had pre-scyencitfical origins and we still maintain some of this view. The psychology is a very recent science, we barely understand the origins of half the disorders and common people still think about madness as some form of enlightening, and this have permeated the vampire books...

    Well, it could be said with new terms or even neologisms, but the base problem is that the stereotypical Malkavian could easily became a mockery of mental illness. In Bloodlines 1 being the Malkavian character was just being rare, may be with some personality disorder of the second axis of the DSM, probably schicotipycal or schizoid personality.

    I would bet for the Nosferatu being the last clan released, I believe that Obfuscate adds more to the game than Protean or malkavian Dominate. And, as they have shown pictures of underground and sewers, I imagine that they have developed this part of the city. With Gangrels you have to deep in the wilderness to fully feel the clan territory, and that is more difficult than to build some sewers, I think. And with Malkavians, in spite of being one of my favorites or may be because of this, I hope that the developers give them the deep and complexity that true madness deserve, I hope something about...

    Well, Tremere is the next clan revealed and Auspex and Blood Sorcery will be their disciplines. What do you think about that? Personally, I am intrigued about the playability of astral projection, the second power of Auspex. It seems interesting.

    What do you bet is the next? I would say Ventrue.

    replied to Vampires subduing Wraiths
    As Ithilid said, the key is that most vampires, even necromancers, can not interact with Wraiths. And the relations between who can and the wraiths depends on multiple factors: the culture, the respect or lack of respect for the restless dead...

    The first clan of necromancers, the Capadocian (now, Harbingers of skulls) didn´t know much about wraiths, they focused their studies in descomposition, regenerating tissue and the misteries of death. That is the reason for the embrace the italian mortal family of necromancers, the Giovanni, in the medieval era. The Giovanni were focused...

    replied to Vampires subduing Wraiths
    Hello, that is an interesting question. Traditionally, the Giovanni have been the masters of spiritism, they can summon, compel and subdue the wraiths by force, but often the arrive to arrangements with them, some of them are family, they can trade, protect their heirs and descendence, etc. Also, the wraiths have some shackles, things to do in the skinlands after die, the necromancer can help them and can treat them with that. Furthermore, it depends of the kind of necromancer you are, may be the Samedi, the Serpents of Light and the vodoun necromancers respect the spirits, but the Giovanni want...

  • One question, you have no mentioned the catayans and their wars against the indian kindred, a war that in the end led to the awakening of Ravnos (o whatever he was). Did the Cathayans exist in your alternative view? Did the antediluvian awakened?...

    replied to Wu Nung Craft? Any Source?
    I know that Wu Nung are not villains or infernalist, but my questions was more about the transsexualism of this craft. May be, the Wu nung are the way to discharge this group for being associated to evil magics and evil characters, etc. Does the Wu nung continue to being transexualist shamans?...

    replied to Help me pick a clan please?
    Any clan would serve but Malkavian, I strongly recommend do not play Malkavian for begginers, given the bufonesque mood that could degenerate. Based on your description (idealist but cynical, persuasive, dislike for the richmen, etc) you could fit in Brujah clan very well, and I think that it is one of the best clans to start playing.

    replied to Wu Nung Craft? Any Source?
    I have recently read The day of the Judgement, the last novel of the old world of darkness (not a master piece, precisely) before White wolf closed the line and I became surprised about one of the characters, Ming Xian, of the Wu keng, a renegade transsexual necromancer from a craft of evil, transsexual, necromancers, infernalists and chinese supremacist, the Wu keng. I can understand why there are not Wu keng in M20, given the political polemics of the last years in WW. Certainly, is a craft with lot of delicate themes, that have become more uncomfortable in the last years. But... what about...

  • About not English America (México is north America), I think that White wolf had passed through different stages. In the second edition, Beyond USA, all was territory of the hispanic and wild Sabbat, a land of cárteles, mafia, drugs and crimes based upon films like Scarface, it was a bit racist view of the region, I think. But later, evolved, in third edition the Sabbat is not evil per se, in México by night one can found a deep richness of characters of wide range of morality. The Samedi, the Serpents of light and some families of the Giovanni seemed to have some power in the Caribe. There...

  • Well, in my opinion, The Veil of Night and Cairo by Night are two of the best books written by White wolf ever, in part because one the authors, C. A. Suleiman, may be a native from the region and I give him the credit of being well informed and had grown in the area, with all the beliefs and tales of the people. I give some merit to Philip Boulle too, I think he was one of the best authors of the editorial. Iberia by night shares the same problem as Transilvania by night, focusing not in a city, but a in whole region, plenty of many ethnics, beliefs and differences, and giving each city no more...

  • It must be Marcus Vitel reborn, of course, Prince and Baron of Washington, a paradigm of what it is the Lasombra clan, and a mock of Theo Bell.

  • I may be arriving too late to this topic, but I would want to express some ideas.

    In Vampire the Masquerade, there are other clans or bloodlines of Indian origin, apart from the Ravnos, as the Danava or the Nagaraja (a former group of nigromants). The true origins of the Ventrue probably lie in the region, tied with the aryan race and Veddartha. Futhermore, as it has been said, Indian is a very important location in Mage the Ascension, due to the birth of two of the nine traditions in this country, the Cult of Ecstasy (Sahadija) and the Euthanathos (Chakravanti). The Akashic Broterhood...
