  • This is assuming that presence will be an actual social discipline and not just a debuff and stun like in BL1. Still, the Anarch guide stresses that Brujah influence mortals more than I remember from previous games, so hopefully they'll have some sort of advantage to doing that.

And it would make the recent turn by some of the surviving Assamites to the Camarilla more fun.
