  • True, but then again the original point of the seven remaining Salubri was to reach Golconda and then be diablerized. So maybe vampires in Golconda are the exception to this, and are effectively immune to being digested. Maybe the muncher gets just that part of the soul that is purely vampire, and the human part, which in Golconda is the great majority of soul, ascends....

  • This...actually makes a lot of sense. Saulot began as someone who just really, really didn't want to wassail, or starve because his herd all died in a plague. He started to become known as a "saint" because he tried so hard both to avoid degeneration and to keep his herd healthy, which are synergistic goals. He did it for pragmatic reasons, but probably didn't exactly go out of his way to correct those who thought he did it out of wonderful altruism.

    Eventually, though, it just becomes obsolete. Technology, even bronze-age technology, means that there are plenty of humans...

  • It's a little tricky, because that movie seems to take place in a universe where the spirit world of the dead and the spirit world of banes are not distinct, but really just one thing. I'd say he's basically a Voudoun who has made a bargain with banes to create a powerful fetish. He's developed either paradox flaws, or the Echoes flaw....

  • Dorian would be someone with a really powerful demonic investment.

  • Personally if I were STing it, it would depend on whether I wanted Gargoyles to be a big deal or not. Frankly I can't recall ever even using them in a game I STed. They are such situational creatures. I like vampires like the Lost Boys, and so would have zero problems with a player-character learning flight, or even creating a caitiff or bloodline with Flight.

    But if I were planning to run a game in which Gargoyles were a big deal, then I wouldn't allow Flight to anything else. It hasn't happened yet, but theoretically, that's how I'd do it....

  • Even those guys I don't buy being able to handle this. An agony so transcendent the victim is frozen and can't even scream is beyond anything that can normally be done to someone. We're talking an agony greater than being engulfed in flame....

  • I don't buy that. Masochists don't have a limitless tolerance for pain just because they enjoy being whipped and having their hair pulled. The Giovanni bite is supposed to be so transcendantly agonizing that people are outright paralyzed, hurting too much to even scream. You might be able to con people into trying it once, but you could never build a herd like that.

  • Because it's incredibly easy to hide three handfuls of dirt. If you have enough of an advantage that you can, with certainty, destroy every last hidden supply of three handfuls of dirt, then you also probably have the ability to just stake/decapitate/burn the vampire in question without even bothering with dirt. If you can destroy all of a Tzim's hidden dirt, you can probably just jump him.

    People, on the other hand, are rather difficult to hide or protect. If people really want to destroy your access to pure blooded Apache, they probably can, and more importantly they can do it as...

  • On a side-note, how do you guys deal with the Gangrel theoretically failing all Animalism rolls because their socials are zero?

  • Tzimisce is pretty easy to deal with, unless you are part of a nomadic pack. Even if you are, how hard is it to keep three handfuls of dirt handy?

    The Gangrel weakness is hellish. Eventual total loss of all your socials? Even the Nosferatu weakness is minor compared to this....

  • Personally I've got no problems with the idea that Gangrel eventually become basically Chiropractoron Marauders with all the bonuses and minuses this implies. The reason is two-fold. One is that Gangrel have arguably the harshest weakness in the game. We're talking eventually ending up with straight zeros in your socials. That's incredibly nasty. Them getting a situational bonus to soften that harshness a bit is fine to me.

    The other reason is that Gangrel are supposed to be scary to other vamps. The other clanbooks really play up the idea that Gangrel are not creatures you want to...

  • 1) A communication officer thorn between his work for a conservative political power and his radical view, expressed in covert action and organizing. A humble, bookish, empathic man, believing in structure and dialogue, he is committed to many projects, and is a strong believer in diplomacy and discourse.

    A Brujah whose sire is an old throwback to the days when Brujah were high-clan. His sire embraced him because he wanted another thoughtful, establishment, high-clan-Brujah childe. Alas, the clan fire that brought the clan to low-status is plainly running true in this childe.

  • The Brujah are probably going to be one of the bigger exceptions to that. While they have a disproportionate number of Anarchs, the clan as a whole IS a member of the Camarilla. An old Camarilla Brujah is going to be very similar to a Ventrue in outlook and methodology. His/her vulnerability to frenzy is going to be something he/she hides by controlling the environment around him so that everything is civilized and quiet, and any arguments are done in a carefully political tone so as not to rouse the beast. In other words, the way the clan likely operated when it was a High Clan.
