    replied to Bloodline: Usiri
    Allowing some kind of time frame to get a new or deepen the connection with an old touchstone could have Languid dissipate, but not resolve for a beat, would make sense. (I allow players to lower an existing Touchstone on the humanity scale rather than have to buy a new Touchstone every time they invest in the merit). Alternatively - a meaningful interaction with a Touchstone could suppress the condition for some amount of time....

    The extra blood hammers it home, though if you wanted to focus only on the Languid Condition, you could say the Usiri gain Languid more often - like when a Touchstone detaches rather than when they are completely lost. It encourages the Usiri to develop and maintain close mortal connections (cults, servants, etc) or heavily invest in a location like a funeral chamber. Every humanity loss then becomes a risk of gaining Languid.

    replied to Mesmerize condition help
    Humans aren't bound to the same humanity sins as vampires when facing breaking points. It's more subjective, and I agree with MCN that it doesn't have to be an act you take. It can be witnessing something, it can be the force of the supernatural coming to bear upon you in physical, emotional or mental ways.

    One of the braking point prompts in the WoC core is "What is the worst thing you can imagine yourself doing?"

    If a character is being Mesmerized to do something worse than that, and feels their body is in fact moving to do so regardless of their own will...

  • When the target has high resistance scores, so you risk failing the ritual (you only get a certain number of rolls for extended actions. If you don't reach the target by then, it fizzles).

    When you want a better chance at scoring an exceptional success....

    replied to What's the role of the Ordo Dracul
    MCN, if you do ever come back to this, I'd be curious how you end up retooling the Ordo to fit what you want.

    Last big campaign I ran the Ordo were definitely the odd-man out. I deliberately put in some mechanics (Wyrm's Nests and Leylines became a big theme) AND put them at direct odds against the city's unaligned (Invictus v. Carthians and Circle vs. Lance are built in, so Ordo vs. Unaligned plugged what I saw as a competition gap).

    In the end, though, I think as has been said - The Ordo don't uniquely have a city-based realm of service if nothing in the Scales looks...

    replied to Claws of the Unholy drawback
    Vampires frenzy on more than just enemies.
    Careful vampires who frenzy without CotU might be able to maintain the Masquerade as someone on bath salts or PCP - not obvious monsters that leave supernatural wound marks on victims and the environment for hunters to find.
    Wave-riders can use tools in frenzy that CotU wielders cannot.

    I favor the interpretation: When manifesting claws, if you are in frenzy, you instead manifest CotU. There seems to me plenty of other drawbacks beyond trying to shoehorn in auto-Vitae expenditures and the like....
