    Why exactly has V5 screwed the Lasombra antitribu over? I cant find any reference in CbN that implicates that they have lost any presige. On the contrary the Descendant of Montano Loresheet four Dot lets you keep your Status in every other Cam Domain in your Country (where others would loose at least one dot) because they "have not forgotten where you truly stand"....

    I would need to double check, but if memory serves me right Vitel is an Anarch in the sense that he is not Camarilla. IIRC he just wanted to built his new empire and if he needs to call himself anarch to achieve that, so be it. But maybe someone with a better memory can help me out here.

    I saw that argument with the dev. His argument was that as a developer and from a marketing perspective it just makes sense to make everything as popular as possible and... that kind of makes sense. Still I would not say you can extract the political Ideals from the V5 books. Its not like they say: "look at those filthy [insert Clan here]" but they try to make the best version of every Clan (in their eyes).

    For the "Clans being hated" part. You are partially right. In an ingame sense, Ventrue 'should be' hated by other Clans (I mean... look at those fuckers). But...

    I think what they are refering to is the notion of especially the Cam book that the Cam views everything not them (or their Partners) as Anarch. So as long as you are not the Sabbat (which in their eyes is all but gone), the Cam or the Ashira, you are Anarch per default....

    I think you misrepresent V5s worldview here. I´d argue its not as black and white as you make it look. The Ventrue are a good example for that since they are more or less the same in Cam and in Anarch. Big difference is (as the free Ventrue section in the Anarch book states) that the so called free Ventrue dont wait for an older one to die to get a shot. With their 'unchained capitalist' kind of attitude they are as much "Republican Party" as the Cam Ventrue.



    For the love of god would you please stop this kind of reasoning? Most of the time I realy enjoy your...

    For me, the purpose of amalgams are mostly two. At first, you can lock specific powers from most of the Clans (true, there are some overlapses). This applies especialy to Character creation. I think, making these Powers more accessible is a 'good' thing. Players that have at least one Discipline in Clan and want to learn them now dont have to hunt down and potentialy diablerize lets say a Malkavian. They just need access to Obfu/Domi (whichever they dont already have) and can get dementation. This point applies to Players the most, since they would have the most desire to 'break out' of the boundries....

    We had this whole argument in another Thread already. As far as I remember even with the same Users on the same sides. Quite franky, I fail to see the benefit of having this conversation again.

    But to get at least a little bit on Topic again: to the 'V5 sucks' fraction, what exactly is missing in the Vicissitude write-up to make it viable? Is it 'just' the fact that its an amalgam now? Or would you say there are important parts of the old mechanics missing? (not a rhetorical question btw. I am realy interested in your Opinion )...

    As much as I would like to throw in my Opinion on Elders in V5, I´ve seen this tango danced before, so lets not get back to the old back and forth here but maybe make a new Thread so we wont derail another Thead...

    For the Companion:
    I like the Salubri write-up the most, Obeah and Valeren seem to me like a "downtime activity" with an O-Shit-Button Potential.
    I am a little confused why they would include Armor in Vicissitude and the Horrid Form, since it does basicly nothing for Vampires......
