  • The difference is that none of those fall into the two following categories.
    1. Material that is literally magical, and thus a magnet for other mages/vampires/garou/etc to try and take from you - assuming the magic can actually be digitized in the first place.
    2. Material that is either so rare or so heretical that it could cost you your life if someone else found out you have it, either because they want it or because they don't want you to have it.

    All your stuff does is cause you slight embarassment. Tarot? Amateur hour wizardry that everyone's cousin dabbles in at...

  • Not load your ancient grimoires onto an electronic device at all, probably. There are several steps it can go horribly wrong.

    Step 1. Own the grimoire. Already, you're potentially in deep shit depending on what it is.

    Step 2. Digitize the grimoire. Either you're scanning it or typing it out by hand. Either one, depending on what exactly you are and what exactly you're using, might get picked up by all kinds of greeblies and goblins out there, from a keylogging russian scammer to a Pentex bane to a curious Glass Walker who gets a sudden twitching urge to poke his head...

  • The Prince neither wants nor needs to be informed of it. Best case, you have a prince who just shrugs and goes 'what will these crazy neonates think of next! Stop texting me with every fucking detail of your day, I'm not Vampire Twitter.' More likely case, you have a prince or bishop who doesn't understand what exactly it means and may or may not react violently. Worst case, you have a prince who knows exactly what it means, doesn't like Noddists, and has you killed on principle for even risking the masquerade and for being a filthy Noddist.

    The Prince is not your supervisor. The...

    replied to You Know What I Hate MK I
    I never quite understood why the presence of more varied peoples and characters in my fantasy worlds would be an imposition, anyway. All the worlds I personally create tend to address things like the status of homosexuality or ethnic minorities (relative to the setting, that is - it rarely maps 1:1, to say the least) or transpeople just because it makes for a deeper world, a more immersive experience, and can help process and parse the real world I live in in a way that is comfortable and controlled. For instance, I gave the status of transpeople some real thought for the orcs in one of my settings,...

    replied to Vampire genealogy resources?
    The best floating around online is http://vampirerpg.free.fr/Genealogy/, which you're probably already aware of. I hope to change that sometime in the next two years with the most complete database assembled - somewhere in the range of 20,000 vampires - but it's slow going since I have a lot of other demands on my time.

  • The Gargoyles are not directly embraced by the Tremere and as such are not a Tremere bloodline.



    I count unnamed vampires wherever possible, and the extra Gangrel and the extra Cappadocian are due to the use of 'signifier' entries - basically, 'there's a bunch, but we have no idea how many'. While eventually I'll have average brood sizes for clan, region, and time period, until that point any brood that has no indicator of size is relegated to a single entry to avoid confusing what's actually in the book with what's a reasonable extrapolation, which I prefer to perform...

  • I would ask that you refrain from saying who I have and haven't counted and who is and isn't numbered without seeing the actual dataset I'm working off.

    EDIT: To clarify, by all means point out where you think I've gone wrong - but please refrain from outright statements like 'you missed Markus Musa'. If you took a moment to consider the Cappadocian count, you'd realize that it cannot be 1, but must necessarily be 2 or more as the Giovanni were not at this time a distinct clan but rather a small-b bloodline within the Cappadocian clan. Despite Lady Alexia's faction title, there are...

  • I haven't entered the data for the DA novels just yet, but according to my charts, in 1197 it had something around the range of the following:
    1 Assamite
    1 Baali
    1 Ravnos
    1 Salubri
    2 Setites
    2 Tremere
    2 Malkavians
    3 Gargoyles
    4 Cappadocians (not counting the many, many emperors)
    4 Gangrel (actually many more - the Baron Feroux had a large retinue in the novels)
    4 Brujah
    5 Lasombra
    6 Toreador
    7 Tzimisce
    7 Caitiff
    7 Ventrue
    and 22 Nosferatu.

    There are a few others from the novels, etc,...
