  • Points 1 to 5 are exactly the reason they were risking their un-life indeed. Two of them (players) are new to Masquerade so I need to let them understand how things works and why but I prefer doing that in game, hence without to be TOO HARD . But still their execution was one option indeed.

    They knew Prince (or other in that court) had Dominate because, they know he's an elder Ventrue (thus is very unlikely he do not have one or 2 dots at least in dominate) and the prince itself used it to shut up one of them being way to much sarcastic, talking over to him (I know another reason...

  • This happened to today session, at the Elysium:

    Premise:

    1. PCs, got to London for the first time and not presented themeselves to the Prince, have been attacked through an Ambush because investigating on something they should not

    2. PCs broke up the Masquerade several time to catch and hunt the assailants. They manage to kill one of them.

    3. Few nights after OCs attacks the sheriff before he could speak thinking he was someone of the enemies of them. They are captured and taken to the Prince at rhe Elysium before all the kindred and Prinogens...

    Actually the core says:

    Seems that the difference with the devotion is that, with that one, you only need to win the CoW without going through the lash out. Hence you need a roll less....

    If I'm not wrong you can lash out against obfuscate 3 only if you manage to percieve him through Auspex, meaning that before you need to succed the clash of will roll...

  • Hi, Animalism 3 is very hard to modeling. I personally use Swarm rules you can find in Demon the Descent:



    The point is:

    1. Animalism 3 is not suddenly and instantly summoning all the swarm
    2. Through Animalism 3 also bigger animals can come (dogs, cats....bears...)

    To address the timing issue I personally building up a damage value, 1 per turn, up to the cap of the successes rolled during the activation. This pool is following the above mentioned swarm's rules (no armor, -2 penality, etc).
    In case bigger animals, like dogs or bears,...

    This is definitely true, and this is what I'm always doing when PCs are trying to meet elders or elders need to secretly meet them. But it risk to become redundant. I've been ghouled/animal2 animals instructed to bite a dominated kindred. I've been using ghouls, I've been used invisible vampires etc. This does not solve the root cause of the concern I have.

    An unprepared elders is mechanically to easy to be dominated, feared, mind read. In VtM was impossible to dominate lower generations, which was, to an extent, the opposite extreme.
    In my opinion there should be more balance...

  • I'd really love to have a fresh new ViR edition but I don't believe it'll happen. ViR is far less famed than VtM unfortunatelly and, apparently, it is not being carried on. I also believe that not delivering physical copies to shops didn't help its notoriety. In fact, many players, in my country, know about ViR 1st ed. but never heard about the 2nd ed. which is far better than the 1st one.
    It's being a while that there are no news about any new project about ViR.
    For the above mentioned reasons I'm led to believe it's a dead project, at least at the moment.

    Do I hope...

    I have always more the feeling that using mental discipline is a bit broken. If the target has not celerity to interrupt/anticipate the domination it is 90% resulting in himself being dominated.
    And this is true also for mid/high BP targets.
    I feel it a bit broken because a neonate (let's say BP1), with skills and attributes distributed to be efficient in Dominate usage, easily rolls same if not more dice than an elder with BP 5-6, which doesn't sound fair imho.

    The reason is because the attacker rolls summing 3 characteristic, two of which are usually above 3. An average...

  • Agree with what mentioned above.
    Furthermore: allies and staff are not an army which you can call to your side.
    Ally represent ONE ally in a specific sphere of influence (Police, criminality etc) the more influent the more high the level is.
    Ally 5 in police could be someone (don't know usa hierarchy) , to which you could ask to call for a Daylight perquisition the very heaven of a kindred rival of yours.
    Staff is giving you free success in that specific field. Retainer is a Renfield. someone you can call whenever you want, you can have him doing your bids, caring of your...
