    That's not Necroscope, either. The leech heavily influences the person it inhabits, but it is made clear that they are ultimately individuals, not meatsuits for the leech.

    Exactly. It was just one aspect of a flexible game system that could tell a variety of stories in a variety of genres. Now it's suddenly the "the core", the one thing you just must have or you are having fun wrong. It's like a burger joint insisting you eat your burger with pickles or you are scum....

    Okay, I am well and truly done with this edition. That killed the last little bit of enthusiasm I had for it. Just snuffed it right out like stepping on a cigarette....

    Wait, what? Are you saying there won't be a version of Feral Heart in this edition?...

    It's a mistake to insist that that be the core of the game to begin with. Different people want different things from the game. Insisting that there is only One True Way is a mistake. It's like selling hamburgers and insisting that everyone eats it with pickles. Not everyone likes their hamburgers with friggin pickles. Some people might want you to hold the pickles and add extra mustard. Getting preachy about how every last customer should and must eat the pickles and you're scum if you don't eat the damned pickles is a mistake.

  • Louis is also only 146 in this version. That's such a huge change that they really might just as well have made up their own world whole cloth.

    This^

    I enjoy playing/running Sabbat games that largely ignore the Camarilla and Anarchs even exist. There is plenty to mine in their distinct culture of Paths of Enlightenment, and internal conflicts. That requires that they have their own cities. Us Sabbat players NEED our own cities to truly roleplay those internal social interactions and conflicts. It simply doesn't work if we're all scattered to the wind.

    Moreover, you Cammy players don't need to destroy our viability as a playable sect if you want to use us as villains. Our viability as a sect doesn't even really...

  • I'm guessing they started with the idea that they absolutely had to make one of the leads black. Which then created a problem because you can't have a black slave plantation owner be a protagonist. While a few free men of color did own slaves back in the day, having one be the protagonist simply isn't going to fly. The company would be buried under the protests. So they then likely decided that they needed to give their Louis a bit of that plantation owner vibe without actually making him a plantation owner. So they settled on brothel owner as a kind of clumsy workaround.

    It all has...

  • He casually stops a car from ramming someone, and doesn't even strain to do it. +8 to physicals is conservative.And he's not even supposed to be one of the stronger twipires.

  • "Slightly"? +8 to physicals is insane. Sparkling in direct sunlight is an insanely less punishing weakness than the thinblood weakness, especially since Twipires don't need any sleep whatsoever. They are much better than WOD vampires in almost every respect. The only sense in which they are inferior is that each one only has one Discipline-like power....

  • They don't really work in the WOD without some massive houseruling.

    Obviously the sunlight weakness has to go, replaced with the sparkly in direct sunlight weakness.

    Generation and blood potency need to go.

    Humanity is still a thing, but it is cheap to raise, like 2 or 3 times level, and doesn't require ST permission, just a decision on the character's part to dedicate themself to a humane lifestyle.

    Each vampire gets one and only one Discipline, which they either pick at character creation or roll on a random table for.

    Strength,...
