  • I have thought of two possibly interesting stories involving a Lasombra -

    1. Two recent emigres have arrived in the city about the same time: a warrior assamite, and a lasombra. The Prince has decreed that both shall serve his court as Scourge for the remainder of the year. At the end of that time, the one whose performance has pleased him best will be allowed to stay, and the other must find haven elsewhere. Both of the dangerous new arrivals have made it clear they intend to win the contest. Now the Domain's Caitiff and Anarchs have serious reason to be afraid....

  • My rule of thumb is that the first decade of undeath is the first hurdle, which most fledgelings don't clear. The myriad pitfalls of Kindred society---offend the wrong Elder and you're done---combined with the personal horror of coming to grips with what you are, mean most young Kindred meet final death either by their own hand or someone else's. Past that initial culling, most Kindred find a niche and manage to survive for decades at least. Hunters, rival predators, and the myriad other denizens of the World of Darkness always present a risk, but Kindred who survive the first decade outside their...

On the other hand, Humanity in V20 is more rigid---certain actions always carry the risk of Degeneration, whereas in V5 you're more free to set Tenets according to the thematic needs...

  • One of my Weird Ideas which I'm unlikely to ever implement in an actual chronicle would be to introduce "Batman" (more likely some similarly inspired vigilante) as an aberrant force (no relation to the eponymous splat) in the setting. He'd be a "normal" human albeit one with peak physical stats and high-tech gear. A challenging foe for a Neonate perhaps, but no match for Vampiric Disciplines. The real interesting question (for me) would be in the reaction of Kindred society to this strange occurrence. A human with billions of dollars in resources waging a one-man crusade on...
