    replied to Orpheus 5th
    Gotta say, although Wth 5th edition would be great, I would also like a new Orpheus game, it is so much more streamlined yet thematic and involving.

  • Don't know, it may work for Chronicles of Darkness that has a bit of a more loose setting (generic or toolboxy) but not World of Darkness, not in my eyes at least.

  • At the same time there is more powerful vampires, there are more artifacts, magic and flammable buildings, also, there is less powerful factions, for not only communication is terrible but each Cainite is going after their own objective individually, so they are more easily isolated. Besides, each Domain and Court might be unique since there is hardly any central power unifying their rules and laws (just Traditions are there). Also, throw a couple of diseased fleas on a Princes city and watch it burn like hell in a couple weeks.
    So there is some power balance in my opinion, no wonder that...

  • Either way, Koldunic (if it doesn't turn into Blood Sorcery powers and rituals) would probably be more appropriate to nature magic than BoSo. And I still don't know if they will make the different Paths of Blood Sorcery at some point, turn them all in rituals, or just make different Disciplines for them. But I'm happy with everything BoSo is at the moment, a little handful of rituals and cool powers, and thats that. Disciplines and Blood powers are not what I would be most interested in a new Dark Ages, more so the setting itself and its characters. Besides, with the new Background, Loresheets...

  • I don't think they are putting any more clans with Blood Sorcery (except Tzimisce kolduns?) and thank god for that, it's like the older editions fetish with thaumaturgy all over again (vampires used more magic than Garou shaman and mages).
    Chimestry could simply be two amalgam powers using Presence and Obfuscation (they would have to change Ravnos Discipline kit but it is a real crappy one either way). In the end I just want the Ravnos to go away, like really, Ravana dead or not, making all an ilusion or not I don't want the return of the Ravnos. The Followers of Set and the Giovanni got...

  • Not bad, although Compulsion have been a bit more defined in what the vampire does. I would say Sacrifice is more appropriate, like not self-sacrifice, any type. It could be sacrifice you friends for your goals, make dark pacts for power, sacrifice face to say what should be said, take the "all that is tainted must end" side of the Garou "should I kill innocent Pentex workers?" dilemma and etc.. But yeah, I think you got a good idea.
    In the end they would be fun crusaders, scholars, princes/barons, noddists, golconda gurus and other righteous or spiritual seekers....

  • My main interest wouldn't be in balance especially because the game as it is is balanced (for me at least), throwing around bigger and badder people is just a matter of "well, now you either play smart or play dead". Yes it constricts the game, and that is why in meta reasoning (and other reasons of course) they sent elders far away, and left the fragile individuals to make story, but at the same time there always will be some Older and Badder vampire around in a city most of the time. What would happen (if V5 was mostly the same for Dark Ages) is that players would begin pretty much...

  • Well, as Cult of the Blood Gods reminds us, Caine was supposed to come back in 1239 so that might be a possible venue. Like it's Gehenna time (again, 3rd/4th time hahaha), or at least something like religious wars everywhere, Inquisition going "what's all the ruckus" and Mongols conquering by the East.
    But it would not be my predilection nor best bet. And yes I think a Dark Ages would't be announced in at least 2 years from now.

  • You know, Players Guide states they will show THE 13 Clans. But since they've been shitting in Clan Ravnos for a long time (and I won't complain), they might just bring Salubri back in their place. It certainly is easier to bring Salubri back as Anarch (since Hecata are independent fellows of V5) since Camarilla members left them to die and then took in their murderers, then defining "so soon" about the Tzimisce (which for me will be the last clan exposed, although Old Clan could go Anarch along with the younglings from Sabbat).
    But I digress, I think they could come back soon...

  • Seems like a Chronicles of Darkness Dark Era and their other supplements. Gotta say, it would be cool, although I don't see they doing that in the Old World of Darkness. But if to choose one I would go to Charlemagne (the mirroring or parallel of his rise would be a great starting chronicle for it). But things like Black Death or just before Renaissance would good too. I think Transylvania and Giovanni Chronicles are the only ones that explores other times besides Victorian and Dark Ages....

  • I just think the people who are working now with V5 might try to make it different. I mean, they are the most unvampiric of all Clans, and this Ars Magica business has ended long ago, with hardly any desire for a comeback. There is just too much stuff going on in there.
    What I would prefer is a remaking of the old Clans with V5 mentality. Like making a respectable Banu Haqim, Followers of Set and Ravnos (although this one is a bit hard).

  • I don't know, kicking out Tremere might be a good move to make thing different. If not, it would not work, cuz Tremere Clan was very young in 1197, before that there wasn't even enough numbers or expansion to be called a Clan, it was yet the House Tremere....

  • Actually, I was thinking about Pre-Dark Ages Vampire while writing the post, and know I was just thinking how cool actually it could be. Imagine, 6th century or a bit after. Europe in shambles, "barbarian" kingdoms/tribes raiding everywhere, scandinavian invasions, normandy expanding, mongol hordes attacking, there is a lot of dramatic moments in the past. And the freedom of working before defined canon is more probable and interesting either way.
    But imagining all the Original 13 Clans as the playable clans sure is kind of weird (not counting Brujah being usurpers of "true"...

  • Vampire 5th Edition Dark Ages (?) V5 Discussion

    So I was wondering, how would a V5 Dark Ages pan out. I mean, there's enough to think about the system, much of the changes were incorporated in-universe as Withering, Beckoning, Gehenna and other stuff, and thats all and good because the metaplot is moving forward, but what if it's moving backward? And worst of all, it's not blank backward, it's between a previous
    Dark Ages and all the modern Vampire the Masquerade and 5th edition, there is already a Dark Ages there (and you can't retcon it all).

    But most importantly, how the game would be (mechanically and lore-wise)? Would...

  • Yeah, I believe in the vein of V5 their power would be Amalgam-like. But I don't know, having Auspex and Presence and Fortitude seem like Toreador with resistance instead of speed, but I guess that's what it is.
    In all honesty I love the Salubri vibe and vampire-martyrs with dark past (and intentions), but in V5 it might be hard to put them in. And I'm certainly not hoping that TalMaheRa or Inconnu keep popping up again showing off weird bloodlines, clans and crazy plots all over.
    But yeah, remember that Salubri art in the Build a Better World (For You) chapter of the Anarch V5 book?...

  • Valeren/Obeah and the Clan Salubri in V5

    Hey people, I've been wondering, it was kinda interesting how they made Oblivion a Discipline for both Hecata and Lasombra (and basically separated Obtenetration and Necromancy in two branches, adding Ceremonies to the latter), and we all are discussing about Vicissitude and Tzimisce, but how about the other Clans, with the return of the Cappadocians and disintegration of the Tremere Clan, what better time for the Salubri to return (in some way or another, with or without Saulot)?
    And the fun quesiton is, how will their Discipline Valeren/Obeah be brought? Will it be an Amalgam power of...
