  • I'm not thrilled about the Path of Honorable Accord being reduced to a footnote, as it's the path my main Vampire character follows. Though perhaps I should be; likely it hasn't been revamped into something with no resemblance to its former makeup as the Path of Caine allegedly has been. Oh well, maybe it'll at least have some canon Convictions I can use. (If not, Long Hard Road Out of Hell seems like it will serve admirably.)

  • As near as I can tell, aside from all the intangible drawbacks an Abomination loses access to so much of a normal werewolf's mechanical advantages that one would be just as well off making a regular vampire who knows Horrid Form and customizing it to look like a war-form werewolf.

  • That brings up an interesting point—there are supposed to currently be about 300,000 wolves in the world total, or about 6 for every 1 Garou if I'm remembering the number of the latter correctly. Would that mean that essentially all currently living wolves would have one or more Garou within a few generations of their ancestors? How long does it take for wolf Kinfolk to breed back down to regular wolves?

  • I think the people who describe that as a wholly pragmatic move on the part of the Nagaraja have the right of it. The Tal'Mahe'Ra was doing things like admitting Baali en masse, the sect's Harbingers of Skulls peaced out for the Family Reunion, and the Nagaraja asked if they could tag along as the latter's +1 when they realized their interests and aims aligned better with their fellow necromancers. "Hi, we're your long-lost cousins from Delhi! Did you guys save us some seats?"...

  • In my experience once you get past a certain base level of power building a jack-of-all-trades character enhances survival chances more than min-maxing up a combat monster does. So I'd say a character with a wide assortment of disciplines and skills rather than being highly specialized is the most generally powerful.

  • There's been a lot of ambiguity and debate in-game about whether vampires actually still have souls. One possibility is that the human soul does pass on with death, and the resultant dead body is animated by the Beast taking its place, with only human memories and long-established personality traits restraining it from inhuman behavior 24/7. (Or, well, 8-16/7 depending on how much daylight there is). In that model, it makes perfect sense that adding to the Beast by absorbing that of another vampire like two drops of mercury combining into a bigger drop would have an adverse effect on such restraints....

  • Isn't New Orleans the one place in the antebellum South where you could have an affluent black landowner mingling with the upper crust without much difficulty? I can see how depicting him as owning slaves wouldn't fly to modern sensibilities despite the historical reality, but make the Caribbean émigrés who figure out Louis' supernatural nature employees or sharecroppers instead and the story is fundamentally the same.

  • Louis is really the main character, so it's probably best if it starts with him. Not all that much was revealed about Lestat until the second book.
