  • whatwhatwhatwha.... WHHYYYY?!?!?!


    What kind of being in their right mind would waste time with such horrid nonsensical self-imposed suffering?! IT DEFEATS THE WHOLE POINT OF AMALGAMS THAT IS LETTING THE DISCIPLINES GAIN BROADNESS AND VARIETY!!!!

    There no "you only get to have one level 2 Ragabash Gift" in Werewolf the Apocalypse or "only one Life 3,Prime 2 rote ever" in Mage the Ascension.
    This is "you need a 4pts merit to replace one of your animal forms with a different animal" straightjacket abuse from Clanbook: Gangrel all...

  • Amalgams are, afaik, for anyone with the required disciplines at appropriate levels, no matter if clan favored or not - since let's be honest if they are not favored the character is already dealing with a level of handicap through more expensive XP requirements anyway.

    Don't know how V5 is doing it, but personally i would break down Dementation's individual powers, making some into Auspex + Dominate, Dominate + Obfuscate or other combos depending on what better fit thematically, that is basically what i already do in my V20 game, in fact. Along with requirements of possessing a derangement...

    All the time i guess. Every domain is a little different and kindred are individuals, with beliefs, connections, ideals and prejudices preserved or twisted from their breathing years or the stormy nights of their their unlives.


    Gangrel harpy that also happens to be an anarch leader, seneschal to the "new" Toreador prince (that was previously a primogen) and her lover. And almost every kindred in the city knows it.

    A Fight Club-esque clique of young licks composed of a Brujah, Banu Haqim, Caitiff, Toreador, [City] Gangrel sharing an interest and competitive...

  • Ok, coming stupidly late to this bandwagon, but finally got around to reading Nazeera's write-up - since i'm pretty much pilphering NPCs willy-nilly for my own "Carna/BJD-hunting" chronicle - and there's a little bit i have seen no one else comment on but somehow really got my attention.



    Nazeera cares about Victor's destruction? I'm sincerely shocked, since i strongly suspect not even his sire cares about Victor's final death. That Nazeera of all people would have a close association with the thuggish CIA reject that he is only makes everything feels more bizarrely...

  • Not Animalism & Dominate per se,‚Äč but i have certainly tinkered with disciplines by breaking a few like Serpentis and Vicissitude down, subsuming some powers into Protean and turning a few others (flesh-crafting proper, heart-stealing) into rituals within a "loresheet"/background/merit, among other things (lots of signature disciplines "gone" in my table).


    If it's your game, it's fine to tweak and homebrew to one's preferences - just remember to ease your players into any changes beforehand, since they may not see eye to eye or agree with your view...

  • Wouldn't know really, my overall perception of the Order of Hermes, Tremere origins and middle ages WoD is more strongly colored by Ars Magica and some small references in 1st ed. books than anything connected to 2nd ed, Ascension, Dark Ages or - gods forbid - Sorcerer's Crusade.

    The moment some genius decided tried to throw that "Doissetep began as an Akashic center somewhere in Asia" angle back in the original Book of Chantries, i decided that any and all Ascension lore from that point onwards should be taken with a roman legionary's whole monthly pay of salt.

  • Depends. Sometimes i sketch out some concept or backstory, others i jot stats around for the sake of a build or whatever - and then there are times i just steal a character template from a splatbook and jot down some small bits to customize it into an almost fully fleshed out PC or NPC.

    And then just throw the lot of them into some file compilation or other for use when the opportunity to play or GM strikes.
