    I don't know about non-partisan since I am not that familiar with American politics and related groups, but I'll try: The NAACP lists Afro-American men as the victims of roughly 50% of all gun-related deaths, despite making up about 6% of the population. This paper goes more into depth regarding black-on-black violence. Also NAACP Afro-Americans are more likely to go to prison/make up a larger part of the incarcerated population. According to wikipedia, Afro-Americans were responsible for slightly more than half of all homicides from 1980 to 2008, the majority of that intraracial (83% of Whites...

    The lack of a 'proper' Malkavian Clan or equivalent substitute was what kept me off of Requiem for a long time (well Malkavian and Tzcimisce), so I can relate....

    The Twins and Grout were done rather well, I agree. Especially Grout, who I considered to be totally sane for the first stretch of his mansion.
    If they find space for both extremes (fishmalk, 100% realistic depiction) and everything in between, I'd be happy. Would also keep you guessing everytime you meet a Malk. There's likely no right answer, and in the end, I hope they go with what makes for a better/more immersive experience....

    I think we're about 99,999% on the same page. I know very little about V5, I have to admit, though. Seconding wanting some gothic punk.

    I totally get the point, and I wouldn't be sad one bit (thrilled, in fact) to see the Fishmalk make a comeback. However, distinguishing the two isn't always that easy for people, and I can see how people with mental health problems would want to see themselves included/represented truthfully rather than in a similar-looking-if-at-heart-conceptually-different caricature. A good in-depth storyline and gameplay (the possibilities for Horror!) with a...

    Fat Larry and Chunk would be SO cool!

    Why does the (probably Elder) kindred lady feel so familiar though?...

    I'm a bit confused by the 'I thought x weren't supposed to be sympathetic/goodie two shoes'. I always thought the point was all your options kind of sucked: Cam, Anarch, Sabbat - doesn't matter, you're gonna be played, used, and partake in shitty stuff that's bad for *your choice of Path*. Every Clan brought something to the table that was worth considering, but everyone also sucked in one way or another - Brujah I imagine are simply the easiest to use for a mainstream-ish storyline while closing an eye or two to ignore the (sometimes glaring) problems. (Disclaimer: I like Brujah, there was a...

  • Yeah, I don't think we'll ever get to the level of Creative Thaumaturgy in a computer game. Demon would work better, but would also be kinda tough to pull off, I think.

    Promethean or Changeling, on the other hand, I'd totally dig. Hunter, too, of course, especially low-tier (no conspiracies), would make for an awesome horror game.
    I think Mummy could also be immensely fun, and would fit very well into a PC game format.


    To be honest, I'm totally stoked about it being a Masquerade game. Requiem has pretty much replaced V:tM for me, but that doesn't mean I dislike...

    That's 50 dots of skills! Impressive.

    Its interesting that we use very different approaches- I specialize strongly, to reduce overlap within the coterie, whenever possible. Then again, I'd have to simulate what my Kindred would look like with another ~210 Co... at some Point, you will have to generalize....

  • An Alien Allure/Vengeful Earth/Dragonfire Horror:
    Wonderfully creepy. Could be anything, from a Horror claiming a sacrifice from their Cult to two different Horrors (Inguma, possibly?)
    Stealthy Anakim = creepy monster:

    Well, since you asked for sheets I could share the one active Kindred I play (slightly changed to account for the next batch of purchase). I don't know if you can consider him 'late game' but I did sink 40-ish xp into the character. Short overview: The character is part of a criminal coterie, originally mainly responsible for money laundering, book keeping, resources etc. Prefers to work indirectly through others or from behind a screen (could topple your corporation by changing a one into a zero ). He joined the Ordo because the idea of transcending the limitations of his state spoke to him...

  • Heh. Glad you like it. If you want the full Wuxia feel, you can always add Wings of the Raptor.

    I'd also be curious as to what a game session you'd consider fun would look like. Think of it in terms of engineering: you describe to someone what driving the car should feel like and knowing the roads you like to drive etc. gives one an idea of what that car could look like, but seeing a similar one in action gives a much clearer impression.
    I am once again reminded of this:

    Ignoring the mechanical stuff, fluff wise the Ordo just really spoke to me most. Coils are awesome, though, not gonna lie, especially in light of the fluff.

    Seconding Errol216, nofather and HelmsDerp.

    What could be a lot of fun though is to live through the subversion of the tropes: your Kindred try to fulfill their childhood dreams of being a ragtag team of superheroes. They got the powers, after all, so easily done, right? Okay, so you need to find an acceptable target (easier said than done), and deal with them - how much violence is acceptable? What if they accidentally die?
    Let's assume those things are out of the way, you manage to take apart the gang: guess what effects taking out a drug pushing gang has? Another moves in...

  • What I'd like to get far more than a Demon's Embeds, maybe even more than In my pocket, is their omniglot charactertrait. Being able to speak practically any language, perfectly? Hell yeah that'd rock!
    I'd definitly love to get Relentless Hunter and Unbreakable, as it takes care of a few serious worries. Chances of living out a healthy life: very high.
    Other Atavisms (due to my love for and familiarity with Beast) I'd consider: Siren's Treacherous Song. You get to talk (very useful for a lot of jobs, e.g. teachers) and also sing better, but most importantly, you get perfect voice imitation....

  • Interesting. Will have to come back and edit this entry when I have a bit more time on my hands, but going by gut:

    Beast's Alien Allure would definitly qualify. Being more likeable is nice. Cyclopean strength comes in handy for a bunch of emergency stuff, so I'd consider it. I really like Relentless Hunter, healing quickly is just a great thing to have (Question regarding the Lair-based resistance: do we just assume Supernatural Tolerance 1?).
    Definitly seconding Scarlet Witch regarding 'In my pockets'.

    As of now, 51% favour the Ordo. Awesome!
    Which is also where I would want to be. My Love for science and the mystical combined in some sort of new western blood alchemy to transcend limitations and basically ascend to a higher state of being- dont know about you, but that one hits all the right buzzwords for me.

    Looking forward to see the other splats' elemental composition.

    Are you planning on modeling the fighting style of wuxia via e.g. merits, to a degree?

  • Don't take this is a setback, and instead see it more as a shortcut to what you ultimately want to achieve (Revision is a big part of the writing process, after all). More good homebrew is good for all of us, and another good Beast-focused Hunter conspiracy would be something everyone in this subforum would enjoy to see and maybe use =)...

    Takahashi Hiroto - the Flying Swordsman
    Ugallu Nemesis
    Hiroto grew up on old Samurai movies and had always dreamed of being a Samurai. He practised on his own (his parents called it playing; he was just 7 at the time, after all) and joined the Kendo and Iaido Clubs the second he could. As he got older, his classmates considered his fixation on his sword-hobbies a bit eccentric, but since he was likeable and wasn't too much on the nose ("He's a chill guy. Just don't ask him about swords, or he won't shut up, though") he got along fine with others. Mr and Mrs Takahashi grew...
