  • I would hope the lead designer understands and enjoys the genre he is writing. I would not want someone who thinks superheroes are silly to say, work on the MCU ....

  • One high level project I read about in the Ventrue or Giovanni clanbook (don't remember which) was this one:

    The Ventrue worked with/influenced NATO and successfully stopped the Giovanni from getting hold of an atom bomb.

    That's like three high level projects rolled into one.

    * Just the act of attempting to get a hold of the bomb.
    * The underlying Giovanni project with the ghost prisons.
    * The Ventrue having enough of a hold within NATO and international politics they successfully managed to stop the Giovanni.

    There's an adventure...

  • Assuming the Technocratic Union isn't a factor, most tech companies should in large part be owned and infiltated by the Camarilla. Google, Youtube, Facebook, Reddit, etctera.

    Yeah that goes straight against V5 lore but it's you know, an entire new venue of power and influence on a massive scale that is a critical threat to the masquerade. Also it helps earn you money.

    Assuming the Technocratic Union is a factor, they would own the above things instead, with the Camarilla having some influience over them.

    Slightly wackier alternative project: Elder founded...

  • Dude seriously, just buy the book. Like at this point you're trying to read it, just you're trying to read it by making thread after thread asking about it.

    Buy it, read it, make up your own mind. Make thread's about what you think about it....

  • Sounds like a potentially cool chronicle and might work well as a crossover with Mage the Ascenscion, with the Camarilla trying to advance human science running headfirst into the Technocratic Union trying to slow it down and suppress it. But other than that their agendas match up very closely, so whether they fight or cooperate is up in the air.

    Even if you did not want to do a crossover there is a lot of other cool stuff you could do, chronicle wise. Recruit people with relevant skills in computer or technology, fund specific projects, subvert tech companies, manipulate public discourse,...

  • Yeah that's what I'm arguing doesn't work out so well in practice.



    Yeah this. Supersecret organisations that works hard to keep the secret magical world secret does not constitute a broken masquerade....

  • The SI haven't broken the masquerade, so that's kinda shit for them.
    I mean, I know the book goes on about "the masquerade is broken" except uh... not really?

    The masquerade is that the public doesn't know about vampires. Since the SI haven't informed the public of this, they haven't broken masquerade. Which honestly should make them less of a threat. An assault helicopter and an army hunting you down should be absolutely fucking shit even for elders. A SWAT team with fancy gear and someone bugging your phone should be a lot less out of context problem for them....

  • It's cause neither the people who consider it an invalid aspect of a mechanics discussion, nor the people who consider it valid really thinks about its purpose and how it affects other rules.

    Something like the golden rule doesn't exist disconnected from other mechanics. And it has a specific purpose. In old school storyteller, the point was very much that the game didn't tell you how to play. It only supplied a framework.

    That's why you get something like the old school path system. 'this is something your character has to consider, it is part of his nature', but then...
