  • HOW DARE YOU! Bunnicula is one of the great classics of vampire literature!...

  • Maybe if Montano is in torpor. He's been a member of the Camarilla since its founding, hasn't he? I'm pretty sure that if he's not an official member of the Inner Circle, they at least pay a LOT of careful attention to anything he says about sect policy, particularly regarding his own clan....

  • The Revised Edition Tzimisce Clanbook, if I'm not mistaken.

  • Yep. on the flip side Thaumaturgy has rituals that allow one to summon and control spirits to achieve effects on the scale of 9-dot disciplines at considerably lower levels. But they take lots of time and are dangerous to use.

  • I like the idea of [Ventrue] having died ages ago, but instead of cursing their clan to destruction like the Ravnos, they released their power and something of their spirit into the clan at large to carry on their legacy. Hence rather than falling apart the clan developed a culture of cooperation that's allowed them to hold so much more extensive domain/praxis than the others. And occasionally that shared power concentrates enough that a 4th generation vampire sires another 4th generation childe instead of the expected 5th.

  • Frankly, if I ever feel the urge to include a creepy supernatural circus in a WoD game, I'd prefer to use the earlier and much better source: Ray Bradbury. I realize that hewing closer to Something Wicked This Way Comes wasn't an option for publication given White Wolf's vulnerability to copyright lawsuit, but my gaming table suffers no such limitations.

  • I'd just treat it like the BBC miniseries Ultraviolet treated it—the lack of reflection preventing electronics from picking up sound made by the vampire or touchscreens registering contact, as if the vampire is a particularly solid ghost. But keyboards, electric appliances (including text-to-speech devices), basically anything relying on mechanical manipulation rather than a machine "sensing" the Lasombra would work just the same as for anyone else.

    I think I like Oblivion better than Obtenebration: more versatile, less overwhelmingly powerful. Ceremonies need to be fixed...

  • Matt the Bruins fan
    replied to Fallen & Wraith
    One problem I have with the Malfeans as being alien things generated spontaneously out of the void is that most of them that have been detailed in print seem to have comprehensible natures and forms related to the human world. Even Zyras the All-Consuming, supposedly one of the most powerful of the Neverborn, appears as a six-winged obsidian angel of close to human scale and exemplifies Wrath. That sounds more like a fallen angel that's been twisted by exposure to nothingness than something that originated out of it with no connection to creation and its inhabitants.

  • When I'm the storyteller, Set actually IS a god, and the vampires he created (whether through curses, priests petitioning him to raise the dead, etc.) are unrelated but mechanically equivalent to the vampires of other clans. I haven't decided whether all the rest are related and truly descended from Caine, or Lilith, or if there are multiple origins for vampires and the Caine myth is just something that was adopted as an origin story in the last few thousand years. Hell, maybe Tzimisce arrived on a spaceship that crashed in the Antarctic!

  • I don't think it's that the Baali embrace automatically makes someone evil to the core, it's that the vampire doing the embracing is going to regard anyone who doesn't get with the Yay Evil! program pretty quickly as a failure and a danger to themselves and their agenda. Soft-hearted Baali fledgelings probably have survival rates lower than pacifist shovelheads who try to talk out differences with the packs that embrace them.

  • I'd allow it, though I would drop the value of the Flaw since the character possesses a power that could temporarily negate it. To use a cinematic (well, televisual) example, on Teen Wolf the character Deucalion was blind unless he activated the full or partial change into werewolf form, at which point his eyes became functional.
