    replied to Lodin the Killer!
    Lodin is Prince and therefore he can deny residency to any vampire who arrives. Its his domain at that point.

    As for killing all the other Ventrue, it seems that during times of Praxis seizure almost anything goes and slaying your rivals during the chaos is acceptable. It's just that when it's over, it's over and no more violence is tolerated. I imagine many vampires take the opportunity to settle old scores during the middle of a praxis seizure. I also assume that given the extent of the Great Chicago Fire that there was the more than usual plausible deniability for why Kindred...

    Wergild.

    Figure out some kind of material compensation to the Bonegnawers involved, and he has to pay it. This does not need to be human money. It could be fetishes or talens. It could even be his kinfolk he gives over to the members of the other sept. Or any number of things.

    As long as he owes up to it, apologizes for the mistake, and pays some appropriate compensation (which for eight people should be a lot, but hey they weren't Garou at least), the other sept should be pacified. Of course, this doesn't mean some sept members may still want revenge, or that overall...

  • Cannibalism occurred in China. In ancient times, it was supposedly a form of exotic culinary for the upper class. There was also belief that eating human flesh had medicinal and longevity benefits. And even as late in the 19th century, Chinese executioners would eat the brain and heart of the criminals they dispatched. I doubt any of this was very prevalent, but there's been enough documentation to make it on a Wikipedia page. Good enough to use as RPG inspiration at least. And of course, there were all sorts of cannibalism incidents during Mao's Great Leap Forward and the Great Leap Forward...

  • I think the concept is strong, but that your plot is weak. Waiting for one or more Fera to show up at his mansion (why would they want to go there?) so they can be (passively) killed by traps does not make a memorable villain.

    Here is what I would do with him.

    1) He's a cannibal. You need to explain why. Perhaps when he was a younger chef learning to cook, he traveled the globe to learn direct from these cultures, and he inadvertently became a member of a local Wyrm cult devoted to cannibalism/man-eating when his local mentor fed him human flesh. Once he did so, he...

  • All Influence means is that the person is mover and shaker in that community - somebody with the power and clout to get things done. The kind of role and leader to accomplish that in each influence sphere is going to be different. Vampires have all kinds of crazy powers to help them accomplish this - Presence, Dominate, and the Blood Bond can build secret followers. However, for the non-supernatural this means being an actual leader within the community (or some kind of official management within the organization). Either someone has to obey you because you are their superior in a formal organization,...

    replied to Vampires seeking Incarna
    The same thing any other demons/banes would want. They want to turn people into their servants and eventual slaves (by corrupting them) and give up as little power/knowledge as needed to get that. If you have access to any of the sourcebooks on infernalism, you should read up on them.

    Demons are very strict - they only give as much knowledge/power to their pawns as they make Pacts with them (they'll eagerly give less power/knowledge than a Pact would allow (who cares if the marks are too stupid to know they could have gotten more), but never, never, ever give more power/knowledge...

  • To use a fetish, a Garou must attune himself to it which requires a Gnosis roll. So anyone not having a Gnosis shouldn't be able to use "standard" fetishes.

    Furthermore, spirits bound in fetishes are only obligated to obey Garou because of ancient pacts, and those pacts require Garou to respect the spirits in return. Otherwise fetishes can become rebellious and work strangely if at all. So it is entirely possible that besides having Gnosis, a person must belong to some kind of group or legacy that has a similar pact.

    So usually fetishes should be able to...

  • I'd keep the setting basically as it was in the first corebooks before it was developed further. I'd retain those things I'd like and jettison those that I don't in later material like the various tribebooks and other sourcebooks. Basically it would be a big editing job with some additional points thrown in.

    1) I'd incorporate more real world folklore, literary, and cinematic werewolf legends and tropes to strengthen the Garou to their inspiration. You only need some appropriate merits, fetishes, and additional rules specific to it (like wolfsbane). I'd also make sure that sourcebooks...

  • I find it hard to believe that they are anywhere close to having 100 million souls even though that is the canonical answer. First, I've never thought it believable that the Giovanni have any significant members compared to the other clans - they have a more limited recruiting pool, aren't present in most domains, and only a small number of the clan would possess the requisite skill in Necromancy to do such a thing. Second, most people don't become wraiths when they die, and the Giovanni only have the opportunity to enslave very few of them. Third, I don't think the Giovanni can enslave souls...
