  • I had a Tzimisce once, granted he was Old Clan and was a Kuldonic Sorceror, but still a Tzimisce to the core and quite, unhuman, so to speak. An Old World Noble from a long line of Noble, there were no human emotion or compassion anymore and couldn't care less about what year or century he was in. He was your social better and you better damn act accordingly and he would not abide by any breach of the proper protocol of his people.

    When approached the correct way, he could be quite agreeable and he was a strong believe of Hospitality and the covenant that came with it too. Depending...

  • Player's Guide for sure.

    I think that a book covering more in detail the Seelie-Unseelie split and the Season Court would alsee to have a better feel of how things goes.

    A book covering Europe and detailing some specificity of the Fae there (Norse Fae, Rus Fae, etc.) Would be great too.

  • If not copy the test, could a cross-reference work?

    A simple doc that indicate in which book(s) are the Rites and Path might work too.

    Indeed, if he was the sole vampire in town for do long, I could see him having a strong sense of ownership, expecting other vampire to show him proper respect and be strongly motivated in keeping the "indesirables" (whomever that may be) out of his town....

    As you indicated, Tuscon is his city and right from the beginning. I can easily see one of his motivation being the growth and development of his city. Hell! Maybe there are a few of of his descendants here (with or without positions of authority), how does he want his legacy to last?

    Maybe the preservation of green spaces or Apache sites (honor they worthy does and what not)....

    Have you tried looking in the Fragments or the Dark Revelations? Maybe it's in one of those Apogryphas.

    Crazy idea here, but hear me out.

    It seems like you have at least 2 players that are not having fun. And it seems like your game is very combat heavy...which is unusual for non-Sabbat game but a valid gamestyle if everyone is having fun.

    Maybe at the next session, instead of playing, have a "meta"-session with them, ask for their honest opinion, involve them in finding a solution for everyone to have fun and enjoy the game.

    And if it's utterly unrecoverable and no fun to the bulk of them, reboot the game, les en from the experience and the suggestion...

    Still a bit of a rough draft but

    The some Learned circles within Cainite socities, there are talks, hushed one, of a rarely seen Bloodline, white as ghost, that are sometimes spotted across the world, with the exception of Africa where they almost never thread. Rumors say they come from somewhere North of the Levant and Mesopotamia. Some clan they do not trace their line to Caine, Hell, some claim they were around before the Dark Father even met Lilith during his wandering. But those learned Cainite not and smile, knowing the folly of such claims, yet secretly hoping never to encounter...

    Indeed, it may not be what was intended, but no health level inflicted means no Soak...which means that high Stamina, Fortitude and Serpentis 3 at all moot...This Character is as vulnerable to The Kiss as anyone else....

    replied to V5 new preview is out!!!
    Looking at the Preview, I'm still on the fence.

    I like that they've gone back to the old metaplots and moved them forward. That was something I always loved in the previous editions and the few elements I disliked either never happened or were lessen (E.g. House Goratrix is greatly weakened but still around).

    The mechanic is where I'm more on the edge. It feels "eclectic". Some old, some new, some reworked/updated and some element seems to be taken straight from CofD (maybe a good thing as it might make it easier if you want to poach stuff from Requiem). I'm...

    that's very much it indeed. Embraced from warrior ghoul and leading said ghouls and gargoyle into conflict against other Cainite or the Order of Hermes. The Gargoyle Revolt was a big blow for them as they lost a competent force and were stuck fighting former troops. This would put them in a more prominent position for Defence of the Chantry.

    For your qualm with the Blood-Bound I do see your point. The Proginitor, Caedmon, is Blood-Bound to the Council as he was embrace and is a Tremere, albeit an unusual one. The rest of the Bloodline I could see a few options:...

    That would be an interesting option indeed making it quite a surprise to Modern Age Tremere.

    Currently, it is couched on a Dark Age character sheet and notes on 3 or 4 other lined pages. Caedmon himself was a 7th Gen Tremere, but his 3 Childer would not be Tremere anymore and they would be a mix of Camarilla, Sabbat, Anarch an Autarkis vampires meeting up every 12 years to take care of "Clan" business...essentially having their own little pyramid within the Pyramid.

    Maybe I should add it to my list of WoD projects...

    He, and his flock, would be more the "Exception that confirms the Rule" rather than your average member of the clan.

    On top of them, the linked description indicates he has no aptitude in Shadow Manipulation, so far from your regular Lasombra....

    Something I cooked up a while Ago for a Dark Ages character.

    Every family has a black sheep, a secret that should remain unknown. In the case of the Tremere, that Black Sheep is known as House Caedmon.

    A lesser Bloodline within the clan, they trace back their history to 1225AD, when Caedmon, a Saxon ghoul vetersn of the Omem and Massasa War, was embraced into the clan. A warrior, the choice was an odd one, but it gave rise to a small force within the ranks whose initial purpose was to defend them and direct the Gargoyle forces, but later on branch off into dealing with...

    There's the problem.

    1) Not everyone has the Revised Clanbook (nor the original), so not everyone has acces to this information.
    2) Novels. Not everyone read them and RPG novels tend to be "flawed" (for lack of better word) but the authors interpretation of the rules, lack of knowledge of the rules or simply the Rule of Cool. and we've all seen cases were a author either contradicted another or contradicted the Corebook/sourcebook.

    So the only concensus we can have would be to go by the Corebook and, based on V20 Corebook, it is not explicitely stated...

    Could go either way as nothing explicitly excludes clothing (nor explicitly includes it) from the equation. So whether "[...] that she (the vampire) may physically become it (Darkness/Shadow)." includes clothing or not would be up to the ST decision.

    I think figuring the niche could help figure out the Discipline. Oddly enough, thinking back at my own grandmother (who turned 100 on June 6th), I would see them having Presence, giving them a grandfatherly/grandmotherly feel or maybe Fortitude for the "ruggedness" of living this far.

    Aging-wise, I see your point, maybe look at the Revenant's lifespan/aging and eyeball it from them for the aging process.

    My current WoD project is a Lasombra Bloodline. So far early history (until c. 1000 AD) is done with a 2 page General description and some mechanical ideas afterward.

    they are older than the "stock" Lasombra and have Fortitude, Obfuscate and Obtenebration as in clan discipline. Necromancy and Abyss Mysticism are quite common. And for weakness, their shadow have a life of it's own and move in ways that doesn't match the body.

    They are very secretive and are rarely seen, and most would technically qualify as Elders. And they really despise Lasombra. They tend...
