    Vitae & Addiction

    I've been thinking about vitae. So corruptible, so addictive. I was wondering if you all might speculate on the effects in a local Princedom when vitae becomes available on the market. Nice thin-blood vitae with no worries about blood bonds. Let's say it became available, expensive for every day but within reach of almost any cainite once in a while for some thrills.

    1. I'm thinking this is crack for vampires. Even those who don't diablerize will hear of the forbidden thrill. I'm thinking some sort of accommodation with the Sheriff will be necessary ("Hey, bro's freakin' out...

    I don't agree, because I hear your concerns but don't think any of them are insurmountable. Your concern about sleeper agents is reasonable, but Auspex (or Dominate) can detect those and of course if you got a "trick" ghoul like that you would be sure that "vendor" would have a suntan quickly.

    Concerning a school of specialists, I think not. We have mortals for that, and we call them recruiters. Hire a company to provide you with candidates, with hidden preference given to those without family. It's better than human trafficking because you can offer them money...

    #1: The business is discreetly providing vitae, not how it's made. The clients don't deal with that.
    #2: We have that! We call it MurderVans. Got the idea from John Wick....

  • Could they use use Awe until they stop resisting or until it's gone? I suppose I could use Dominate to tell them to keep resisting. Then indoctrination, Dominate or Presence.

    I kinda like indoctrination. Make your desired beliefs by skill and extended successes instead of the Restructure win-button....

    Stripping Willpower from Mortals

    Ventrue and other social types make extensive use of mortals, ghouled or otherwise. Now that V20 works of current wp rather than permanent rating, the question remains as to how one might most efficiently strip willpower from mortals (or cainites, but please specify) so that Presence or Dominate can proceed.

    What are your favored ways?

    Here's another service. "Training School". Vampires like their servants, but not everybody likes Dominated cronies. So an enterprising Cainite can Dominate someone to resist Presence by expending Wiillpower and get them to blow their willpower away. Then Conditioning or Indoctrination can begin, depending on whether you want dominated servants or fanatically indoctrinated ones. Just like dogs, humans can be trained for eagerness to please.

    Vampire Services to Provide

    Neonates and ancilla have little prospect for wielding power in Cainite society. However, that does not mean they are powerless. Enterprising young Licks want to be useful to their elders, whether for want of cash or even mere recognition. So what services do your less powerful vampires offer their sect members? I'd love to see your ideas, perhaps a paragraph detailing how you make your little cainites stand out?

    My idea is the Blood Factory, which I posted in an embryonic form previously.
    The Blood Factory is a discreet service, providing vitae to those who desire it. It consists...

    Dominate - The Forgetful Mind

    Dom3 allows you to remove or modify memories, with 5 successes being the ability to reconstruct entire periods of a subjects life. It seems it has more potential uses than hiding Masquerade breaches.

    It seems to me that if a vampire reconstructs periods of someone's life, it can easily be used similarly to the Malkavian power of Restructure. As an example, a cainite drinks from a mortal, and an enterprising vampire modifies his memory. Now the victim remembers the life-changing experience, encountering the presence of the divine in his ruined soul.

    Changing memories changes...

    I never mentioned generation or years spent as a cainite. Please just state your particular case and go on. Although to be fair, this vampire has been around for about 150 or so years. Generation anywhere from 9th to 7th. Let's use that as an example to keep this focused....

    Investing in Your Childe(r)

    I'm thinking about a vampire who has decided to play the game like an elder, and retreat from direct interactions with mortals. Childer are created to represent them in the world. This allows the elder vampire the opportunity to operate through cutouts and therefore conduct his affairs invisibly. But how to establish a long term relationship? For me, the Blood Bond just doesn't make for truly effective pawns, as it distorts their thinking and is easily detectable.

    The method I am thinking about is investing in them. Pool various Backgrounds with them, which they can use to grow their...

    I've wondered about that Monteparnas. Admittedly the Vaulderie isn't a 3pt blood bond, but just what kind of good feelings and loyalty the Vaulderie creates

    Let me be clear. The cainite does participate in the Vaulderie. Every time. It just doesn't affect him.

    Vaulderie Immunity Scenario

    Consider the situation where a vampire (Sabbat) for some reason is not subject to the Vaulderie in the same way that the Unbondable merit works. I'm not saying how that might be, so just take it for granted that this cainite is "un-vaulderieable". Yes, I made up that word.

    As this young prince of the earth conducts his life, he engages in the Vaulderie with his own pack of course, and over the years he joins other packs and Vaulderies with them also. He also engages in vaulderies with other packs as well as various individuals over the course of his unlife. Where does this...

    That's an intriguing idea. Like the nice Tremere, you keep detailed notes of your Abyss experiments, and when you eventually die gruesomely your (successful) experiments and theories will be passed on and strengthen the clan....

    No sense beating him/her into the ground BenjCano It is a groundless assertion, which is repeated regularly and applied to "banned disciplines" and other silliness also.

    V20 shadow perspective doesn't do that at all. It lets you see (or use other senses) from a shadow you can see, or one you know well but cannot see at a higher difficulty. I don't have the old lore of the clans....
