    replied to Learning Disciplines ICly
    The house rule I have in my games is this:

    For an in-clan discipline, no additional action other than XP expenditure is required. I think another member above who wrote "the blood knows" put it best.

    For out of clan, a character will have to convince a teacher to teach him the first dot, and the teacher will have to feed him a point of blood (which produces a 1-point blood bond). I usually don't RP the "lesson" for controlling the blood in this new fashion, unless the player requests it, but I do have the PC and the teacher play out the negotiations...

  • I don't really see any Path that jumps out at me as being for this character. Perhaps one of the Paths of Sin that doesn't involved worship of demons, such as the Path of Pleasure or the mainstream Path?

    A moderate humanity score is probably a better choice; if he's a neonate he is unlikely to be on a path anyway.

    Thank you for the advice, I will probably be using the method described in Children of the Night.

    You also need not worry about me dropping these fellows in the game like a random encounter. Likely one major sub-plot will revolved around someone (I'm not sure who yet) attempting to revive the 4000 year old one from deep torpor; meeting him would likely trigger a failure state for the PCs (to put it politely). Perhaps a bit cliche but I consider it one of the classic V:tM storylines. The younger one might meet the PCs in person eventually, but like any good elder he will work through...

    Regarding Children of the Night, does it present rules for designing NPCs, or is the square root of age rule just an extrapolation for the pre-made NPCs presented in it? I've never read the book as I don't use too much metaplot.

    The square root of age seem reasonable for discipline dots, but again it is not very consistent. The version of Al-Ashrad (5th gen, roughly 1900 years old) that I know has 100 dots of disciplines, the square root method would get my Hittite (~4000 years old) only 63 dots.

    Designing Methuselahs

    I am currently running a Pathfinder game for some friends of mine, and it is in its later stages and will likely be over soon. As a change of pace, I will probably run a Vampire game next, which got me thinking.

    I will probably need two 5th gen Methuselahs for my game concept, one embraced in the 12th century, the other from the 22nd or 21st century BC (so, essentially pre/the dawn of history).

    Unfortunately I've never really found any consistency in published materials for statting these kinds of characters. I was thinking of using Al-Ashrad from the wiki page as a template...
