    I like the sound of that. That will of course, I assume, depend on how V5 sells....

    I can't understand why people would go through all this for the sake of an RPG. I've heard that politics are rather emotional at this time but people are taking this way to far. My condolenses to anyone subjected to hate mongering, harassement or the like.

    EDITED: And I am curious if there will be a new Dark Ages line or if I should get V20. But that's really not in any hurry so I can wait and see.

    Naturally I've got a whole freaking bunch of bloodlines, most of them for the historical lines (Dark Ages and Victorian Age). Mostly I've worked with Brujah so far but I've also got some scattered ideas for other Clans.

    Brujah

    Zakarim - Proto-Brujah of a frenzy-proine disposition, only two Disciplines and so on

    Areiai - Violent raiders and pirates who terrorized the Aegean in their heyday during the Bronze Age collapse and the Greek Dark Ages

    Blood Templars - Catholic crusaders who had a short boom during the Crusades but have waned since then...

  • I'm feeling bored so I wrote up the names of Lilith's thirteen lovers with whom she got the Antediluvians as mentioned in my post above for the "Lilith" scenario. Some of them were inspired and some where not. Malkav, Nosferatu, Salubri and Ravnos are such that I'm a bit unsatisfied with the choices but I couldn't find anyone that worked better. And in the case of Ravnos its not even a Biblical but Gnostic figure (or at least that's what Wikipedia tells me).

    I usually send Patty away because I don't want to harm her or see her harmed by getting entangled with the Kindred. Unfortunate people brings out more compassion from me than scorn and one of the things I regret most in my life so far is that I probably could have done more to help people less fortunate them myself. But its kind of too late now.

  • I've got some twists on the traditional creation stories but no one which are totally divorced from Noddism. The reason is that I think that Abrahamitic mythology works so incredible well with the themes of vampires that I am entirely unwilling to divorce myself from it. The ones I have are basically based on the legends of the Nephilim, on Lilith and on each Antediluvian being individually cursed to vampirism.

    Nephilim: Essentially that some of the Nephilim survived the flood due to their magical powers and unnatural existance. Problem is that their bodies did die but they the surviving...

    I had an idea for a Nosferatu bloodline for the Victorian Age based on the legend of the Gremlins and that it would have been obsessed with tinkering with machinery and that its blood could affect said machiery causing to, well, experience misfortune or stop working. But I realized that this would require a new Discipline so I abandoned the project and think about introducing the same kind of effect by a Background that one can buy which allows this effect from one's blood.

Once a dilettante following with the fashions without any specific real interest as the years washed past him he was Embraced following a temporal partnership with a rake that he thought would perhaps stir some interest in him for something. But as it turned out the rake lead him to a den of sin where he was the expected dinner. But luckily...

    replied to Question on Kuei-Jin metaphysics
    I hear you and you make alot of sense. I skipped through some of the book and it looked like very taxing reading and lots of rules. And I play WoD mostly due to the relative lack of rules and focus on storytelling. Modifying the Kindred and maybe throw in some not-before-seen disciplines seems like a much easier solution....

  • Forgive me for asking but this is somethinig that I've been thinking about. How possible is it really to infiltrate the Sabbat? I mean there are all these rites with blood sharing rituals so it seems to me that spies who stay long enough to get access to sensitive information on the Sword of Caine are going to take part in so much Vaulderie that they are likely to shift their loyalty to the Sabbat instead of their previous organization. And if they don't take part they will get on the Sabbat's radar as suspected individuals. Or am I totally wrong here?

    No, the payoff is getting to know who is a vampire and who isn't, and most importantly, if its a vampire you know or not.I'd say this information is worth it.

    They are not risking Final Death from meeting other Kindred. They are risking a frenzy from meeting new Kindred ONCE per Kindred if the WORST SCENARIO happens.

    Meeting a new Kindred is not at more or less controble than any other source of frenzy. Getting haranged and harassed by some random idiot on the street isn't really under the control of most Kindred.

    But yes, in the standard setting of VtM,...

    It is really bad if they habitually Embrace people who won't stand the stress of the Kindred existance, I agree. Just going out your door risk frenzy from various sources so its really not different from this.



    To start with it seems like this "knowing that guys is a vampire has no benefit for keeping vampires secret" feels to me like your grasping at straws. It has immense value to know who is in on the secret and who isn't. I find it so self-evident that right now I don't know what more I should say about it specifically.

    The first part that makes...
