  • Is the second description written in regard to Technocrat Mages, or possibly Tradition Mages from the Society of the Ether? The description definitely seems very tilted towards such or similar groups....

    I think it has to be noted that the Clan cultures of Lasombra Vampires and Tzimisce Vampires might be an important and interesting factor in regard to leadership, organization, and teamwork of Sabbat Cainites.


    Did Anarch Vampiresses and Vampires perform the Vaulderie (and perhaps other Ritae?) before V5 was released?...

    There might be a few (or more than a few) Ritae - whether Auctoritas or Ignobilis - that could sort out such an issue (if it would be na issue at at, that is) directly or indirectly....

  • Can you mention / describe any positive or nice stereotypes in regard to Ghouls ? I do recall they are often mentioned as being important specialists in regard to some areas of expertise, or in the role of lovers, friends, and companions.

    I would also like to note that many Vampiress and Vampires have been Ghouls before they have been Embraced. Surely such persons - after and before becoming Vampires - would contribute to a more positive image, and also better wealth / material conditions, for Ghouls who would be their acquittances, colleagues, or friends....

    It also has to be noted that some Sabbat Vampires can end up with low Vinculi rating towards other Sabbat Vampires.This does not have to be immediately obvious, clear, or discerniable....

    replied to Future generations?
    The changes or tendencies in Embracing (and possibly Ghouling and creating Revenant Families) might only apply to particular Bloodlines or under very particular circumstances. It might very well be that Vampires of the 13th Generation can reliably Embrace, though it might be that such Childe tend to be Duskborn / Thin-Blood Vampires.

    It would be nice if there would be a whole V:tM book explaining the matters of Generation, and detailing out overall details in regard to Bloodlines. Such a book could also elaborate and expand on the basic and standard qualities a Vampiress starts out...

  • It has to be noted that even these one or two Vampires affected by the Beckoning in V5 can still receive help or somehow deal with this condition or circumstances through making good enough choices, or by working out some precautions and means....

  • It was very nice for me to hear this, VtM: Bloodlines 2 and Bloodlines 1 are certainly noteworthy and important for more than one reason. Certainly they are important for WoD as an RPG setting as they allow a different kind of variable experiance through gameplay mechanics and the varied choices / decisions made during playthrough. The Bloodlines game series - as well as other WoD games, such as VtM: Redemption and of course VtM: Coteries of New York - are also noteworthy for being examples of excellent, complex, and interesting PC games. Both standalone (due to excellent story, mechanics, graphics,...

  • I do recall that in various V:tM books there are hints, implications, descriptions, and tales about various properties of Vitae. There are also tales, descriptions, and even some rules in regard to blood of various Nightfolk (Mages, Garou, and possibly other types of Supernatural Persons). I think in some books there should be at some information and descriptions in regard to uses and benfits of blood taken from mortals. Possibly the more overall books like Guides, Companions, overall WoD setting books, and maybe also of course some City by Night books as well, have this kind of descriptions or...

    Thank you for linking this website, it might certainly come in useful. Maybe especially in regard to me making definite progress in regard to designing personal computer games (whether standalone games or mods, this remains to be seen), which I have been looking forward to do since at least some time. This site seems certainly more varied and comprehensive than sources which I have encountered and read before....

  • Maybe also Entropy Magick (or maybe even a Prime Effect) could be used to achieve such outcome / result ? I do recall Entropy divination or perception Effects being mentioned relatively often in some M:tA books. It might require higher Sphere level than Entropy at 1 or 2, at such Effects might be relatively rare among Technocrats and Traditiion Mages, at least going by the usual tendencies and themes....

  • There definitely could be Mages who still follow beliefs, ideas, concepts, attitudes, and methods outlined and described in Dark Ages books.
    So these Mages would be still using Foundations and Pillars - like the Old Faith's Summer, Winter, Spring, Autumn approach to Magick. Such groups could also be focusing on just one or two Pillars to exclusion of other approaches, making them even more unique and distinct....

  • Thank you for the elaboration, this looks like a good, interesting, complex, and nice approach.

    Have you ever give any though or consideration to possibly including Vampires from the Tal'Mahe'Ra Sect in the Convention of Thorns, or in situations stemming from this event?...

  • Reading the main / overall MtA books would be a good start in regard to beliefs, methods, approaches, Paradigms, and philosophies of various particular Mages and the different Mage groups and organizations. The various Corebooks and also the Storyteller's Companion are definitely good enough. I would also certianly recommend the Book of Shadows and the Book of Chantries. I would like to note that it is very important to carefully consider and connect the infomration and facts from the different chapters, no matter how varied or unrelated they might seem at first.

    The pictures and...

  • What would happen to the beliefs, philosophies, and outlooks of Mage groups under this approach? Would there be an overall reduced emphasis on the beliefs and ideas of Mages and their organizations? Or the attitude you described would be more or less mainly in regard to researching, learning, casting, and teaching Magick Effects ?
    Would there be any changes as to how Mages would be doing the more mundane and normal projects? Like the involvement of the Cult of Ecstasy in regard to enjoyment/entertainment scene, companies, and events; or the Verbenae contribution to caretaking of the various...

  • Was it the same (or at least comperable) kind of fun, enjoyment, and satisfaction during each of the two instances your players' characters paricipated in the Convention of Thorns?
    Also - were the players active participants in some way, or did the simply observe the Convention of Throns with some separation or distance? While perhaps trying to change, influence, or benefit from the event?...

    replied to Happy Hallowe’en
    When it comes to portraying, depicting, or dressing up as a character from WoD (whether a character from VtM, MtA, or as some other kind / type of supernatural person from the World of Darkness), do you think that there is any significant or noteworthy difference between a coming up with a Halloween dress-up, and doing a cosplay at an RPG convention (or a trading card game convention / event) ? It seems to me that the overall approach and attitude, as well as choices and decisions, might as well be very similar....

    This is certainly an nice rundown for a person like me – informative and interesting to read. Other than the school and university education, most of what I know in regard to gods / deities, and also various beliefs, faiths, and religious organizations comes from relatively small amount of independant fact checking and research, and also from computer games like Shogun: Total War 2, Medieval Total War 2, Civilization 4, Civilization 5, Age of Mythology, Heroes of Might and Magic 4 and also Europa Universalis 3. Another source is of course role-playing games like WoD, Song of Ice and Fire (GoT)...

    It has to be noted that the Vinculi does not neccesirely has to overcome or dealt with before leaving the Sabbat and joining another faction or some other group. You could have a Sabbat defector who is on the way to being accepted among his new fellows / friends while still handling the issue of having emotional bonds or thoughts coming from personal attachment to Sabbat Vampires.

    To deal with the emotions that might come from the Vinculi in such or similar circumstances, a Vampiress could try to establish some contact or outright cooperation with Vampires from her own Clan. If this...
