  • Hardsuit Labs no longer leading Bloodlines 2 Development

    https://www.reddit.com/r/vtmb/commen...m_source=share

    Well, here's a piece of news. it seems HardSuit Labs is no longer the lead developing studio for Bloodlines 2, *and* the release date for 2021 is prrrrobably gone out the window.

    Granted, *modern* Mages with rather new paradigms and teachings might default a bit more to that train of thought. Such things just have a way of seeping into newer constructs of belief if they happen to work.

    Indeed. Essentially *having* Time 1 would allow the Mage to sense that "something is going on". Just that vibe nagging at the back of their head, probably causing repeated perception + awareness (not alertness) rolls over time. Without really needing to see a Deja Vu or anything themselves.

    Then, an actual roll of Arete using Time 1 might net a few successes and they'd probably see time getting distorted - a confirmation of their earlier suspicions. But a couple of successes with that big of an effect going on would be akin to suddenly being able to see air move while being...
