    replied to Chimerstry in V5
    We can end arguing about Critique of the Pure Reason and Kant. Our western idea of reality it is usually that Reality could be objective, but the senses are subjective. So Reality is unknowable. Obfuscate, cheating the perception, alters Realities.

    Furthermore, in first and second edition of Vampire, before Chimestry, Obfuscate used to produce hallucinations and stronger illusions.

  • One of the few rules that limited the overpowered discipline of chismestry was that it did not functioned at daylight. So, given that Ravnos meet his end under the sun, rules in hand it could no be an illusion.

  • The problem with making Chimestry more relevant, instead lowering down and replacing for Obfuscate, is that the Discipline end becoming more important than the Clan (as it happened with Vicissitude and the Tzimisce). When the first Tzimisce appeared, they were insular lords of feudal castles, medieval monster playing inhuman games of the Long Night. Vicissitude was a way to emphasize that inhuman behavior, but ended consuming the concept of the "Old Clan" of voivodes to become the clan of vicissitud. When the Ravnos were printed for their first time, Chismetry matched the (very questionably)...

  • I think that Obfuscate could replace Chismetry, furthermore in the first and second edition, Obfuscate could create complex hallucinations and haunt their tunnels and havens with strange fantasmagorias. In Clanbook Nosferatu, for example.

    Thank you!

    It was a very violent session, plenty of gunshots, brawls and ambushes. The attack of the Gary coterie, the Crook´s revenge and the high noon attack ended with the characters arriving the Succubus club burned, flayed and very damaged. Although not being a strongly narrative night, I enjoyed playing as the rude beast that is Malenkov, the Lasombra.

  • I would expect, by content and mood, something like Infernalism: The Path of Screams. This book of 1998 was the most similar to a "Guide to the Nephandi", until now. Here you have a review:

  • -MODIUS: I barely forget that I storytelled Rusted Veins, the alpha version of V5 to test the rules. In this narrative arc the players, a Gary coterie composed of miserables, aided Sullivan Dane to kill Modius. The brujah furthermore gone frenzy a killed BRONWYN, who was trading human slave as blood vessels.

  • - DARSHUF: I have played as a storyteller a chronicle based on Damascus by Night, from the Veil of night, where the characters killed the infernalist sultan Darshuf (the Prince). But they never manage to uncover and kill the true power behind the throne, the baali Annazir. And since then, Annazir has become one of my favorite NPC, as a master puppeteer and soft and calmed baali.

    - VANNEVAR THOMAS: I played a long chronicle loosely based on the Bloodlines video-game, but settled in San Francisco. I depicted the Prince Vannevar as an old texan confederate, very conservative and arrogant,...

  • I do not have the book or manuscript, but as I have understood by other comments, the Samedi, the Lamia, the Harbingers and some rebel Giovanni are teaming up because they hate the Giovanni elders and they were looking for revenge against Augustus. I think this is a powerful reason, unity of the necromancers against a common enemy, the bane of their lineage. The only ones I do not know what are they doing in the Hecata are the Nagaraja, may be they are mercenaries, may be they want something that Augustus had....

  • In L´heresie cathare there are many references to the Pleroma, the second messiah and the Golconda as viewed by the gnoctics Salubri. Probably, the albigensian crusade could be considered part of the cyclical Gehenna....

  • The vampires in The eternal Struggle do not have generation, they have blood potency (since 1994) and the maximun is 11. So a vampire with capacity 10 reflexes a very powerful elder. Capacity 11 is usually reserved to the leaders of the clans, as the Inner Circles, some Cardinals and some very strong elders.

  • In Vampire the eternal struggle, the half-canon card game, the Samedi are descendants of Trogloditya, a Capadocian from the dark ages clanbook who embraced the Baron. She had ties with the Nosferatu and, probably, she was one of the infitiores. Anyway, every time the Samedi were depicted as Giovanni rivals and allies was evident that they share a history in common.

  • I would be glad with Victorian age coming back. About Dark Ages, the first edition was settled in 1197, the second in 1230 and the last one in 1250. But that was not an impediment for supplements in other years, as it was Iberia by night (1212), Sea wolves or the Transilvania and Giovanni chronicles. In my opinion, the publishers are not prepared to expand Vampire in this direction yet. They have not published some of the more awaited books for V5 and the setting is not completely consolidated, we even do not have all the clans. But, as a idea, I would prefer a IX century setting than a another...

  • About the anarch childish behaviour, in books as Anarch Cookbook, is hard to take seriously a speech when is full of pranks, jokes and funny games. The focus is put in the rebellion, but a rebellion from a teenager against the system. Not a serious war, with casualties, victims and collateral and political damage. They are young teenage neonates and idealist boys fighting the monolithic Camarilla, represent for the Justicar Cristo Alonso Petrodon, bane of the Anarchs and practically a fascist. I do not think that the Anarchs of 3rd edition were better or in the height of their power, but they...

  • About the Anarchs and their relationship with the Camarilla, I think it had changed with the pass of the editions. In the first and second editions the anarchs are viewed as a teenager phase of the neonates. The Anarch Cookbook pranks and childish tone only serve to reinforce that. Is in 3rd edition that the Anarchs achieve the status of a serious menace to the Camarilla, in my opinion. And about Salvador García, I think that in V5 his treason never happened, the author have rewind the invasion of the Anarch Free States and the fall and the claws of the yellow peril. But, in the same handbook...

  • Ravnos and Salubri are reforging and alliance of broken clans in India with the Danava (inspiration from DAV Companion). May be this clans could build a new sect for a new setting in the east.
