  • Yeah, a sort of half-Marauder that is resistant to Paradox but isn't completely bonkers eventually got subsumed into "low Quiet" Marauders. Still divorced from reality, but in subtle ways. They're almost operating on the same level as other Mages, but not quite. Post-Avatar Storm, these probably made up the bulk of Marauders still operating on the material plane, as the really dramatic cases were ejected from Reality.

    My reading is that it's the exact opposite. The Vinculum ties you to individuals, but does nothing to engender particular loyalties to the sect as a whole.

    If it did, you wouldn't need to perform the Vaulderie with packs you meet or at gatherings. Nor would there be Sabbat Civil Wars or factional conflicts.

    The idea of "Sect First" emotional ties is more a feature of the Tremere Pyramid and drinking from the cup. It creates loyalty to the Pyramid, or at least to its leadership and the ephemeral "idea" of Clan & House Tremere. Nonetheless, Tremere...

    It's kind of baffling to me that a whole sourcebook for Vampire would just...NOT be released in the game's native language. Granted I'm biased, being an English-As-Only-Language speaker. Imperialism and all that. But it's still really odd. This is the first time I've heard about the book's existence.

    And since it's a DAV20 book, it will probably NEVER be translated officially. Why would the rights holders put the effort into a book that isn't even the edition that want to sell?

    Setting aside how it would change both how the game is run and its themes, drinking lab-grown blood probably wouldn't be viable because of how the metaphysics works. At least according to Mage's metaphysics.

    If you asked a mage, they'd say a vampire drinks blood because they're a Bygone that's staving off Reality unraveling them by stealing Quintessence from the Patterns of living creatures. The ability to tap a resource most Bygone's can't is why vampires are so successful.

    While comparing the metaphysics of Vampire and Mage is a dubious prospect at the best of times,...

  • Strictly going by the rules, it's difficult to have an otherworldly faction that's TOO disconnected from the material world, because of Discorporation. In order to maintain an Umbral realm that's proofed against its residents turning into spirits, it requires tethering to Earth, via Nodes. Many Tradition Chantries and Technocracy Constructs are build around Nodes that maintain their realms. Often multiple such sites per realm, both because of the Quintessence requirements and for the sake of not putting too many eggs in one basket.

    As such, any mage faction that predominantly exists...
