  • I agree. Compared to Masquerade, in Requiem Devotions system has acquired much more importance. With Devotions you can transcend the power level of a 5th dot Requiem Discipline (that's already a 7th power level from Masquerade). I'm thinking to devotions such as: Bone of the Mountain, Juggernaut Gait, Force of Nature, Dark decree and so on).

    I think that Requiem, yes can have huge fights and epic battles and can be played as an action RPG if you like to go that way, but you should use proper antagonists. But when played in a city environment, without involving other supernaturals,...

  • I guess you are losing the point here: a requiem 2ed. fifth power is, almost in any case, equivalent to a 6th/7th dot of a Masquerade discipline. It's normal and designed to be absolutely awful.Vampire in requiem are the terrible creatures of the horror stories; powerful demons. So why do not thinking to let your 4-6 soldiers patrol to act as in a horror/Lovecraftian book?

    For example they could be horrified seeing a mate of them being suffocated by a sentient cloud of smoke. One of them, panicking, could shoot to the mist screaming and falling down on his back, the other could run...

  • Well you can go for whatever you prefer as there are no rules about it. So if you want to allow to an headless vampire to go around without being able to hear, think and see go for it. I personally prefer a semi torpid state in this case. It prevent the character to walks smasing himself against tables and walls. Obviously this' valid just if you consider a dead brain as the center of thoughts ... But as long as you are considering dead eyes the center of sight this should be the case....

  • No.... As a kindred with a severed leg can't run until the leg grows back, a beheaded kindred can't move, think, see, until the head has grown back. A kind of torpor....

  • By raw decapitation during fight is not contemplated between the aimed hits.
    But I guess you could threat it as cutting off a leg after a head aimed attack (-3). The problem would arise when someone with a bit of vigor and BP 3 would pump all the vitae amount in just one single attack. I see tons of heads rolling around 🤣...

  • Yes, it's possible. Resilence does not deny injuries just let them be armful....

  • I'm pretty sure to have read that Vigor adds to Speed. After all it's specified that physical intensity does not increase derivate traits.

    I'd also say that as Resilence increases Stamina it also affect merits involving it. Otherwise why stating that Resilence increases Stamina and not just Health boxes if you can't never use Resilence dots when Stamina is called to purpose?...

  • By raw, while in the first edition was specified that a vampire could be killed removing his head or burning him up, here a vampire can only die when all his health boxes are filled with aggravated.
    So, even if I can see there are rooms for different interpretations, I would go this way: as Resilence does not prevent injuries, just damages, so I would say that in order to remove a limb (like head) I consider the damage (pre soak) as what is needed to remove or not the limb, and eventually, with resilence, the damage will not be applied.
    That's also very inspirational: a dead corp,...
