  • Well in V5 when you commit diablerie you gain 5xp you can spend on blood potency OR disciplines known to the victim for each success on the contested roll to subsume the diablerized vampire's heartblood. If you roll 5 successes you gain 25XP, which is a lot considering the 1 XP per session rule...

    Considering how you keep insisting on diablerie as means of increasing the power of PCs (what diablerie means doesn't seem to bother you much onestly... it's power after all!) seems to me you should be happy for V5 diablerie rules. Potentially they make diablerie much miore effective than...

  • Here's a suggestion I posted a while ago:

    http://forum.theonyxpath.com/forum/m...lae-and-elders

    The problem for elders in V5 is not the lack of 6+ disciplines but the fact that for the moment the basic rules of character creation do not support them having POTENTIALLY more disciplines than a 13th gen fledgling. The moment you allow elders to have more than 5 powers for each discipline they posses they regain their advantage and amalgam disciplines...

    replied to Sheriff during mardi gras
    The Sheriff does NOT do his work alone. You need a strategy and then resources and hounds to make it work. Since you are the Sheriff the Prince and/or the Primogen council should

    First thing: do you have the political support to pull off the job set for you? Is the Prince helping or is he settimg you up to fail? Who on the Primogen council is working with you? Who's against you? The answers to these questions should give you an idea of what you can reasonably expect, possibly identifying and thus discouraging troublemakers from making their move during the festivities.

  • V5 is very clear about the blood bond: it activates only when someone drinks DIRECTLY from a Vampire. If the blood is poured into some sort of container instead, a cup or something like that, the vitae can be drunk without incurring the blood bond. This works nicely for your purposes and helps certain predator types avoid enslavement simply due to their dietary preferences...

  • Cities that already had a book:

    -Washington DC: A nominally anarch city ruled by a Lasombra Methuselah besides being the capital of the USA. I think there's a lot of interesting stuff going on here and a lot of potential to evolve the setting as a whole.

    -Los Angeles: I want the show status quo to be aknowledged. It's a more traditional anarch domain but now it is contested by the invading Camarilla and that's really something that changes the usual dynamic of these things as the Camarilla normally is the sect that gets "sieged".

  • Cults of the Blood Gods: the YouTube chronicle

    So... I just finished watching this show from Red Moon Roleplaying.

    I enjoyed it as a viewer as it was well acted, while the players and the Storyteller kept true to their characters and NPCs.

    As a Storyteller there are some things that left me cold though. Without entering spoiler territory I think there are some big plot holes and I don't agree with how some of the scenes were set up (in an unfair way to the PCs imo). There were mistakes from the PCs for sure and I also think some of what happened was done so in order to provide a better "cinematographic experience"...

  • Yes and no.

    Yes, you are correct about the Sabbat marginalizing the Anarchs because both Sects were opposed to the Camarilla but the Sabbat being the more openly violent ended turning the ANarchs into a subsect of the Camarilla, the "loyal opposition" so to speak.

    No, the Sabbat had nothing to do with the concept of "sticking it to the man", because at the end of the day packs answered to bishop, archbishops and cardinals, and basically all of those were elders and shady political figures, much like their counterparts in the Camarilla were....

  • Let's see:

    Critias doesn't want the title. Most elders understand that being prince is as much an hassle as it is a benefit so he's perfectly fine with KJ ruling as he was fine with Lodin before him.

    Anita doesn't have the personal power to hold the position and Chicago is the most "Camarilla" of all the cities in the States so... no chance.

    Tyler is not even in Chicago anymore. And if she realized that Helena is there she'll stay away.

    Adze has potential as he's got money and information but in order to become prince he would have...

    replied to [V5]Thoughts on Vienna
    My take on the Vienna incident is the early Second Inquisition was acting with the full support of the Technocracy, a support that progressively weakened after the destruction of the prime chantry BECAUSE they thought that destroying "Vampire Central" meant the rest of the "ematovores" were now easy pickings and left the Second Inquisition to deal with them alone or with minimal support (their resources were better spent trying to gain control of Reality, which is the Technocracy's goal after all). This was of course a wrong assumption, but one that benefitted several parties....

  • The werevolves of old did things like imprisoning Kupala and the Talons of the Wyrm and one of tyhose critters forced an Antediluvian into a stalemate at the very least. So yes the Shadow Lords have the potential power to compete with the Tzimisce. It's just that all out non stop war would possibly bring both of them to extinction falling prey to other enemies (admittedly, given how vampires and the Tzimisce in particular work they are probably better suited for attrition war but that not taking curses and the like into account).
    So they have their territories and frequently fight each others,...

  • The point is Frank Castle doesn't spend his time confronting his inner demons. He has a war to fight and that's all he is and everything he wants to do. He his a soldier in a self appointed war against criminals. He doesn't question the morality of his actions. He knows his war to be righteous (deep down some authors pointed out how he doesn't really care, all his pretensions ofd righteousness are justifications for killing, because he likes killing).

    Vampire characters can play as the Punisher for sure (I've a Brujah who, while less extreme than the Punisher, hunts drug dealers and...

  • You seem to confuse the things you can do in gameplay with the core theme of the games involved. For example in Mage you can do much more than building jetpacks but the core themes of the game are about reality, masses vs elites, propaganda effects, freedom to express oneself and the lack of freedom in the contemporary capitalist society....

  • Makes him an antihero, borderline psycopath villain and a controversial figure even in contemporary USA with some police officers appropriating the punisher logo and authors going as far as claiming Frank Castle is not someone whose ethics should be emulated. Anyway the point is "super heroes with fangs" (or "Vampions") is not what V:tM was meant to be from the start. It's something some players and STs enjoy (and more power to them if their games don't fizzle into bloody messes of murderhobo measuring constests), but it's not the core theme of the game....

  • Back when they were introduced (in the 70s) both the Punisher and Wolverine were villains. Foils for Spider Man and the Hulk respectively. Later they transitioned into anti-hero territory. It's arguable they ever became fully fledged superheroes. The Punisher in particular is a controversial figure. At times Frank Castle has been portrayed as someone who's really just a killer who directed his pent up aggression against criminals, but if things went different with his life he could have chosen an entirely different "demographic" for his "war"....
