  • Why? What was wrong with Obtenebration?...

  • That's never been an issue before. I think VTM has always had merits and flaws and a set number of background points. Freebies are a thing too....

  • Controversies aside I would have preferred if more of the book was not written in first person. I like how they did it in BJD where you get all the in character bits but then at the end of each chapter you got valuable plot points and ideas. Also why did the books not contain more merits and flaws? The V5 rulebook's list of merits and flaws are woefully slim and we need more options there....

  • Agreed, I think of it more of a confluence of events though that screws the Cam. Second Inquisition is the major extinction level event for Kindred but when your sect is on the run and then the majority of your heaviest hitters also start disappearing then the young will smell blood and start taking it to them....

  • It seems more to me like a plot point with no teeth. Tell me how the Camarilla has been affected if all their elders are gone? It doesn't state methuselahs. It states the majority of elder vampires besides a few holdouts are gone. As in off the grid. If its not as extensive as all that then that was not how it was presented in the core book....

  • That's a bit unsatisfactory. The V5 rulebook states a few elders hold out(pg 215) but the majority are disappearing. I know I can make up whatever I want but the V5 lore contradicts the existence of a continued Camarilla Sect. Unless the Camarilla is all Ancillae now and the anarchs are solely neonates and fledgelings. I wont dwell on it to much but it is going to become more of an issue the further they push that narrative....

  • I am currently working through the Anarch book first so I haven't spent much time with the Camarilla book but I really hope they explain the Beckoning. Its hard to plan a chronicle when your unsure how many elders can be in your city. If the Camarilla is a majority of elder vampires but the majority of elder vampires are now gone it makes me unsure how the Camarilla can still be a viable political force in any city?...

  • I suppose I just don't think current White Wolf has written anything thus far that qualifies....

  • There are many peoples in the world and all of them are characterized in ways that are both true and untrue. I'm trying to tell stories and some of those stories might have characters who reference people by their stereotypes because that's how the world works. I try to present the world how it is(perhaps even a bit worse due to the setting) and not how I wish it to be. I don't have to follow my NPC's ideologies to portray them that way.

    edit: Also neither does White Wolf to include those terms or subjects in their material....

  • That's mostly how I see it.

    I just hope it doesn't influence the way they create new content for the WoD moving forward. I find it amusing how words like gypsy trigger people but throw in a dungeon humans are kept as foodstuffs or literal slavery when it comes to ghouls and no one bats an eye....
