    Streets of Necropolis

    Well, I just had myself a little blast of nostalgia here this morning after a long night. Got to randomly thinking about days now long since gone and faded to memory hanging out in the old White-Wolf chats. This got me into a bit of a Google adventure where I started looking about and found some assorted forum threads of people chatting about it, some of the history of how it all evolved over the years it existed, and even managed to find a little internet archive of a fan recreation of the old chats that I had a little click-stroll through and really let the memories wash back over me.

  • I suppose I should drop a quick update in here that I've been working on making some tweaks and updates to this writeup. Had someone contact me recently about some of the changes, so thought I would make it more well known. I've also got some outstanding development comments open on the document indicating some of the direction upcoming changes will be going.

    So, yea, if you were one of the folks who liked this work up, be advised that things are changing with it.

  • I'm also going to go ahead and chime in quick that my preference lies entirely with the black and white, more old school style of the sheets when it comes to Vampire. I think it has a more tactile sense of the games themes and moods better than the more "sleek" modern approach does. It helps to give the sheets that little bit of extra character that is just nice to have. The black and white aesthetic taps right into this too - I think color almost detracts from it.

    That said, some minor application of color on the sheet might be interesting. For instance, the headers...

  • I should be clear I'm not saying that it isn't possible to merge them and allow Protean to provide a path the still gives a sense of the flavor as has happened with other merges. In fact, I can see a super easy route to go with it honestly which I'll lay out here quick to illustrate that:

    Level 1: Malleable Visage (New Power Level for V5, exactly the power from previous editions of the same name that also simulates "Flesh Crafting" from the Level 2)
    Level 2: Feral Weapons (Existing V5 Power Level, sort of simulates "Bone Crafting" from Level 3)
    Level...

  • Yea, they've kind of bounced back and forth on the concept, which is also something that makes the case a bit weaker from a general perspective. One could also argue that the Kupala link is much cooler than the infection link anyways, so they may well want to keep that around.



    It can, but as I stated, the best place to put it would be Protean, which would mean that Discipline is now a mix of 3 as opposed to all others that have been mixed only having 2 merged together. It seems to be throwing a lot onto the plate of one Discipline in particular to go that route. It...

  • Well, that is part of my point actually. There has been a fair bit of merging in V5, but in all past cases it is merging 2 Disciplines together. It would seem strange for one to suddenly have a 3rd merged into it as that would buck from the current trend. So I think that actually further supports the case that they may just bring the Old Clan up to the fore since they just replace Vicissitude with Dominate in their spread and make a quick solution. And, as I say, it leave the body horror gimmick to the Sabbat who are said to be the creepy boogeyman again in V5.

    I dunno, it just...

  • Is that really confirmed outright? I suspect you are making reference to the bit about "learning Protean after drinking the blood of a Tzimisce lover" in the text, but I don't feel like that alone stands as outright confirmation that their Clan lineup now consists of Protean. Per the Corebook one can learn an Out-of-Clan Discipline by tasting the blood of someone who possesses it - it does not seem to say that they must have it as an In-Clan Discipline themselves, just that they must have it. So, that line could simply imply a Tzimisce who happened to also have Protean (as having...

  • Something I have been chewing over recently as it pertains to V5, the tidbits we've learned thus far of the Sabbat and what state it is likely to take as the V5 details move forward, and some possible threads that could lean into this and also explain where some other content in V5 will land.

    I think it is strongly possible that the Tzimisce of V5 will actually be the Old Clan variety from past editions. This would allow the Tzimisce to have a Discipline spread that does not contain any Clan specific Discipline stuff in the form of Vicissitude, and also keeps them from having to...
