  • The only thing I can add is that you might want to get a read on your players before hand. Vampire is one of those weird games where everyone seems to have strong opinions about what it should be in theme and game genre.

    Vampions - basically a super hero RPG that is vampire themed.
    Personal Horror - you will need anti-depressants after playing, but in a good way.
    TV Series - basically an adaptation or mirror of a given TV series (vampire diaries, true blood, Buffy, forever knight, dark shadows, etc.)
    Social Eyeliner - everyone just agrees to dress goth and hang...

  • ​A bow and archer of that size wouldn't fit inside most hallways or doors, which means you would be only using it in a wide open spaces like a sniper rifle, which means in most fights just to get into position, you are using it in human form, which means a drop in power, range and draw. Also you wouldn't be using the volley method of firing, so no arching the shots for additional range and punching power. Thus you are restricted to only straight on shots, which most ballistic masks are specifically designed with angles to make such things glance off rather than stop them head on.

  • ​Depends if the protective helmet includes a ballistic face shield, which usually covers down to the throat and depending on the model have eye protection. Also last I checked most Type III or higher design body armor had throat protection as standard.

    ​Also anyone who wants to try to trick shot an arrow through an eye slit or neck area in the middle of close quarters combat outside of a high fantasy setting, really needs to lay off the anime. Don't get me wrong, I have seen some amazing archery shots, but there is a functional difference between a calm & rehearsed trick shot...

  • Just attached a layer of silver plates to the exterior of a tactical vest rather than replacing the trauma plate. That way you get the best of both worlds, admittedly at an increases weight, but ghouls get a dot in potence so that should be fine.

  • To be honest if you build the wagon out of hard woods and use thicker construction, it pretty much is fire proof. Contrary to what is shown in movies and tv, wood can be very difficult to burn. It would take an accelerant and maybe an hour to burn through a heavy duty carriage/wagon wall or ceiling, more than enough time to have a servitor extinguish the flames or for the vampire occupants to jump out.

  • ​The term "White Room" comes from certain scenes from a few different movies and tv shows where the characters end up in a completely white room that is empty other than themselves. Usually the it is filmed in such a way as to look infinite in size since you can't really perceive the floor or walls. The arsenal scene in the first matrix before all the guns get loaded in would be a good example.

    ​In gaming, to put characters in a "white room" is to cut away as many variables as possible, usually to figure out who would win in a fight between two builds. Like...

  • Arcaneumkiller Aren't you "White Rooming" this a bit further than is required?

    ​The Thread is about Tremere fighting Garou. Of all the clans the Tremere are one of the front runners for just by default having access to required lore on other creatures. Thus the question of being able to identify what you are up against (between lore access and Auspex) is not a problem. This in turn means no sane vampire would ever 1v1 a werewolf. The vampire in question would avoid at all costs, use decoys and diversions, use minions or cats paws, and then once at a safe distance figure...

  • After a fashion the Tremere would be the go to clan for transportation.

    ​A Tremere Wagon crew with ghoul horses and mortal retainers should be fairly resistant to raiding. Pretty much all the perks that apply to a wagon also apply to most kinds of water craft, be it boats on river systems or a larger vessel on the open sea. The various paths and rites are equally useful in that regard.

    ​On the other hand if the emergency is truly dire and the weather is clear, a loyalist gargoyle could carry a single vampire quite a distance in a single night of flying. During the...

  • Another thing to consider is the roads themselves. Unless you are on one of the old roman roads, you are pretty much stuck with dirt paths. This means that you need to balance heavy construction with the possibility of rain. Even a light amount of rain can make an armored wagon or even just a heavy wagon get stuck in the mud.
