  • I read it this way;
    Chimestry, going by its name, effects and the opinions of the fey, is the Changeling crossover discipline. It creates chimera, which are dispelled by banality (when the mortals find a way to convince themselves the chimera can't possibly exist). Following the trickster and fairytale themes, it's a sort of riddle-type discipline. You have to prove it's not real, possibly while the Ravnos counters with explanations about how it totally is.

    Affects a single sense to a radius of 20 cubic feet, visual illusions cannot be animated. Easily disproved,...

  • I have always thought that Yu-Gi-Oh (at least the original manga) would transplant pretty well, in a way. Most likely into Mage, though I'm not 100% familiar with that line. It would certainly explain what the ever loving fuck is wrong with the school population and 75% of people's parents, and why the laws of physics are constantly getting screwed.

  • At this point in VtM, Golconda is whatever the ST says it is. I usually tend to borrow themes from the gnostic angle that tends to crop up in the WoD. The world is wrong, inherently unjust and can go fuck itself.

    To me, Golconda isn't an external spiritual salvation or enlightenment per say, it's the consilidation of the rational mind and the beast. Sating the hunger within yourself by filling the void with your own soul, forming a complete being free of the drawbacks of vampirism with all the benefits. The answer to "A beast I am, lest a beast I become." Your sense of self...

  • Personally I've never liked linking vampires to the Wyrm and write the taint off as the decay of the human soul/psyche rather than anything inherent.

    That said my first response to the question was the same as you guys, but a potential counterargument was brought up that the blood does change and adapt (bloodlines, Caitiff) so there could be grounds for the blood being an evolving thing that would want to spread to other hosts and maybe see them live long enough for potential adaptation. Or that the ancients would want the higher generations to propogate so that they had more tools,...

  • Do vampires have parental instincts towards their childer?

    Looking for opinions. For a bit of context, there's a discussion going on about animal behaviourism as it applies to vampires (for use in a character concept) and this thought exercise was pretty straightforward until we hit that bit.

    You could argue that animal behaviour doesn't apply to curses, but the beast has fight or flight so they do have instinctual behaviour that can be observed. Anyway;

    1) As this would be an imortant part in the beast giving a damn about its kids, do vampires have any drive to reproduce? Almost everything that exists does so, but vampires...

  • Uh, preferably never, though I'll adapt something if it interests me. Like; The Sabbat regent is dead and was an infernalist, and the Sabbat are now on the verge of a civil war over the succession. A long term methuselah plot has resulted in the unification of the Hecata (but not as a literal fusion of the bloodlines), and Vienna somehow got destroyed, the Council of Seven is missing, the Pyramid is no longer held by blood bonds and nobody has a clue what happened (although clan Tremere has not splintered the way it did in V5).

    I'm here for the core concepts of the setting (13 clans,...

  • Pretty much all of the bloodline specific disciplines (Mytherceria, Melpominee, Spiritus, Bardo, blah blah blah). But everything listed in the main discipline section of V20 I can probably find a use for, somewhere.

  • If I decide to use the Week of Nightmares it goes something like this;
    "It's 10:35 on a Monday morning in Bangladesh on the 28th of June, 1999, and suddenly an ancient horror awakens. Over the course of the week millions die (mortal and supernatural alike), clan Ravnos goes extinct, a nuke is dropped to no effect, but after further struggle finally the thing is killed. In the moment it dies, it is 10:35 in Bangladesh on a Monday morning on the 28th of June, 1999. You and everyone else remembers the carnage, many remember dying, but as far as the universe itself is concerned sweet fuck...

  • OK, Tzimisce and the alien nature of vampires. I actually feel like hyperfocusing on vicissitude as a blatantly obvious "freak show" body-horror discipline makes the Tzimisce less creepy/alien (it is fun sometimes, though). I have it that such uses are considered immature, and a sign that one is a fledgling who by so fervently rejecting a human shape is still defining themselves by humanity. Older Tzimisce have come to understand that their human shell is simply a tool. It isn't what they are, any more than the light at the front of an anglerfish is the fish. Or, for a closer example,...
