  • Yes, this is an issue that keeps popping up.

    WoD is an extremely setting focused rpg. It's what it's about. But an inevitable consequence of that is every group makes their own version of their WoD. You find the game, you like it, you make it your own, you make the setting your own and then suddenly everyone have their WoD and nothing matches up with anyone elses.

    So if your Sire is your touchstone you won't view him or her as a 'vampire master', but rather a friend, or maybe a lover, teacher, parent, sibling or possible employer.
    If your childe is a touchstone you might care about him as if he was your actual child. Or a student.
