    The Dark Ages version is about ancient conspiracies as well, Rome fell, but the Senate Eternal not. Those ancient vampires, with long standing alliances (and feuds) did not just disappear, and in the XII century they are the Camarilla pre-Camarilla, the Inner Circle of the Long Night.

    The Lair of the hidden version of the Inconnu, based of the path of Golconda, could be useful in a chronicle about redemption, with the characters trying to regain their lost humanity, may the characters find some ancient grimoire of lost wisdom or some mysterious guide. The Constantinople by night version of the Inconnu, heirs of Rome and the eternal senate, could be more useful in political chronicles, with the conspiracies inside conspiracies trope. There is no only one Inconnu. Curiously, Lair of the hidden, was the only appearance of Saulot aside from the Transilvanian Chronicles.

    I read Lair of the hidden a few months ago, a good book with some interesting plots and complex characters, but hard to implement on most of ongoing chronicles and very based in the globetrotter Jyhad of the 90s. Anyway, the idea of a sect inside other sect as it is the Inconnu is interesting and less phantastic than the crossover-rainbow Tal-Mahe-Ra.

  • I enjoyed Rusted Veins very much, I have storytelled this chronicle twice. Well-written! Personally, I think that captures the mood and themes of 5th edition perfectly, and Modius deserved that end.

  • I agree with you, the nonsense of the name and the fact that he is a blind art dealer could be original for the Ministry concept, but a bit stupid. Anyway it is only my opinion, I am sure other storytellers would enjoy Arthur and Aluc, but not me. In the other hand, I consider the quality of the new books very high and Chicago by night an excellent book, this was the only character which I did not like at all, probably, being spanish I only hoped some spanish characters being depicted with a real name.

  • I believe you, I did not though that was bad intention with it, just lack of interest of researching a properly spanish name. But I do not know, may it be from south-america, but in Europe is not name used at all. But sure, of course a Vampire can change his or her name to be more palatable for americans, it is very common in Hollywood, in fact. Ramón Antonio Gerardo Estévez as Martin Sheen, for example.

    EDIT: I have researched Aluc, and not only it is not a name in spanish, but neither in basque, galego, catalán or other languages of the peninsula. And it is not listed as a birth...

  • I myself am spanish and never, never have listened that name, it seems a joke about "alucard" or something like that.


    EDIT: I would not be the first time with americans making fun of "stupid spanish names". To an spanish, Aluc Romas de León sounds like Buch Mickeyson of Whitechaper and Bloomsbury

  • Yes, I understand it, but to me it works as canned laughs. In my personal opinion, with Aluc Romas de León, the worst characters of Chicago by night new books. The problem with Aluc is not only that that name does not exist in spanish, but also he is a blind art dealer. Ironically, that makes him more funny than Arthur Caldwell.

  • In the precise moment I read the Chicago Folios, I knew that Arthur Caldwell was a fanmade character. I, personally, did not like it, one more malkavian clown. It seems that Malkavian could only be psychopaths, clowns or psycho-clowns. Also, the sense of humour on each chronicle and group of player differs, so a character trying to be funny sometimes just seems artificial. However, it is only my personal opinion.

  • In my opinion, Innocence in Blood is the best chronicle of the four. It is the one who draws a complex moral dilema with no easy answers. And it digs in the dirty aspects of the main sects, the Camarilla and the Anarchs. Furthermore, it is an interesting update of Milwaukee and the description of a new domain, Indianapolis. Even as much I disliked the first Milwaukee by night, I have enjoyed this chronicle and this setting. It needed this update.

  • There is an important amount of Iteration X cyborgs and shock troops in Panopticon, the cross-covention methodology of storm troopers and reality-deviant hunters.

  • That is the key. The Necromancy was not an open matter in the Clan, the Giovanni were secretive, the even maintain the Necromancy aside from older families as the Milliner or the Dunsirn, who were assimilated for the money and lack ruthlessness. The Puttanesca were the mafiosos and the enforcers of the clan, the were the Potence of the "clan disciplines", may a few of them have known necromancy, but most of them have not. They are so despised by other Giovanni that they were named "Bitcheson."

  • Not only in the third and fourth edition was blatantly hinted that the Samedi descended from the Infitiores, through Trogloditya, but also in Vampire the Eternal Struggle she is the most powerful and ancient Samedi, more than the Baron. You can search their cards and art in google.
