"Huh. Unexpected side effect of bringing Serena to the modern nights (aside from her being fucking terriyfing even comapred to Christof with Ainkurn, due to the power of her magic and pets). She has a puppy thanks to shambling hordes. I wonder if this might unbalance the game a little? The Age of Redemption mod has made guns nasty as hell, so might actually balance out.

Thanks anon. I especially like >>60784873 this page. Might continue collecting the Vertigo trades, got lazy for a while. Is this during or after the Vertigo run/imprint?

I've always loved John, Lucifer, Swamp Thing, Sandman and the other Vertigo lads, and even lump Zatanna in there, but the larger connection to the DC universe dulls the feeling of dread. It doesn't matter how many nasty fates I see happen; the fact that Superman could save you at any instant, Wonder Woman will be on the news that night, somehow takes away the horror of the darker aspects of the setting."

I'll tell you how not to play one.

You're not some lolsorandom meme-machine that tries inherently to fuck everything up around them just because "I'm crazy, lol" It’s just immature and irritating for the other players.

You wanna know how to do it?


I held a job in Social Work in the late 90's and part of my job was investigating the needs for people with mental health issues. And part of that job is to assess people and to learn the difference between the people who are faking it to get free benefits and the people who are genuinely suffering.

The fakers will self-diagnose and create laundry lists of problems they've googled and wear them as a badge of honour. They’ll act absent minded or goofy and generally get very defensive whenever you investigate further.

The real cases are much more heart-breaking.
People who don't know or understand what's going on,
People who are fucking terrified of what's going on in their head, they know something's wrong but they have no control or power in their own mind to stop it.
People who just want to be normal so they can live a happy life.

People who are scared of becoming something else other than who they were before it started to go downhill.

And that's a big part of Vampire's story arcs, you ARE becoming something else other than who you were, and to top it off as a Malkavian, you're now losing everything sacred to you, everything that made you who you are mentally as well as physically.

I quit my job after six years of that. I'm soft as shite when it comes to this kind of thing, and seeing people on a regular basis start to change and "mentally decay" like that was too stressful to monitor. If you want to play anyone with mental health issues it’s a tragic subject, it’s all about loss. Loss of self and identity, and more often than not, loss of people around you, because some folks don’t or can’t be burdened with the responsibility of looking after you."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==60792985 && dateTime=="07/11/18(Wed)12:05:39")

This guy>>60792902 is right.

In one of by the Night there's a malkavian prince(or baron, can't remember now) that has two personalities. As prince he wears a mask and is totally terrifying, but the moment he take the mask off he reveal his weaker personality.
He's constantly afraid that he could lose his mask in front of his subjects and reveal his shy nature in front of all.

Malk's curse should be terrifying for them. Never pick megalomania as derangement, it's boring as fuck"

>Cleaning and shit in this board room
>Get tired, so sit down at head of table as fuck it, no one around
>Men burst into the room carrying another, beaten man
>They address me as Prince and say they found the "sabath" traitor I wanted alive and ask what we should do
>I stare at them blankly
>After a few awkward moments, the one who seems to be in charge ask if they may "diaberalize" him as per their right
>I manage to nod because they are expecting something
>Holy fuck, they rip out his throat and drink all of his fucking blood
>Can a human body even fit that much blood?
>MFW holy fuck vampires are real and they are right here and have mistaken me for their king or something
>MFW it has been decades of keeping up the ruse and doing everything I can, even drinking blood, to not let them catch on. I have a family, a daughter, if they find out who I really am what will they do to them?

For a more simple approach consider making a compulsive gambler.

Have him focus just at normal gambling while the embrace is still fresh but gradually losing interest and searching for his kick in other ways.

Have him gamble for boons, take a gamble during combat, be drawn to more fucked up ways of gambling (probably run by the local Setite).

Take a que from >>60792902 and have his friends and family hate him for all the trouble he causes, have his coterie distrust him because he fucked them over by gambling in some way. He realises that he has a problem but it just feels so good when he does it, especially now that he's dead the thrill of gamble makes him feel alive again.

Have him become more disheveled as him fucks himself over again and again but always managing to not meet Final Death thanks to his Mlkavian intuition. A endless cycle of gambling, winning then losing more than he had.

Look for movies about addiction in general for ideas about behaviour. A good example, even though it's sex-addiction, is Michael Fassbender in Shame to see how a non-drug addiction can fuck you up. maybe some documentaries about it as well : This is just after a quick google"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==60797524 && dateTime=="07/11/18(Wed)16:36:56")

Oh and a good idea would be to not make him some sleazy Vegas stereotype.

More heartbreaking or shocking is to have someone be a really nice guy until his issues pop up dramatically. Either they know they have a problem and they try extra hard to be nice to compensate or for a more devious angle think of domestic abusers.
Most of them aren't some David Cage "I beat little kids for breakfast" cliche, a lot of them are pretty nice ppl until something just snaps in their brain.
It's what makes some justify his behaviour since "he's not always like this" or what makes it hard for people to escape them since everyone around them sees only their good side"

I mean that depends on what you mean by murderhoboing.
The Sabbat do not give an ounce of a shit about human life, not one whit. If the choice is between snuffing out an innocent or mild inconvenience, a worrying amount of sabbat will not even consider that a choice.

But they sabbat are led by 2 clans, both of whom have delusions of nobility and predlicitions towards noblesse oblige. There's a lot of very stationary psychopaths
Also they have their own version of the masquerade. Sure they don't give a shit about the opinions of the cattle, but they also don't much care for having to fend off violent mobs, and having to stake a couple of their young ones and leave them for the sunrise to avoid the trouble they're also just fine doing that.

In short, be as much of a murdering psychopath as you want to be because your superiors don't give a shit about human life, but also don't cause too much trouble because your superiors also don't give a shit about YOUR life."

Caitiff teach other non-clan disciplines, I mean that's literally canon.

Potence, and fortitude are sort of "In the blood" and don't really need a teacher as per the rules.

And yes, it's going to be difficult to become a strong vampire as a caitiff, but it's going to be dififcult to do LITERALLY anything as a caitiff, you may as well aim for fucking success.
And this isn't an unreasonable path to take, it is the CANONICAL advice given by succesful caitiff to younger caitiff.

They pay the same for disciplines with freebies, because freebies cost 7 freebie point regardless of dots, and aren't affected by in-out clan disciplines. In fact the core book encourages you to go out of clan with freebie points.

The dots they can pick from whatever they want."

Why would their believes change? There is literally nothing in being a supernatural monster that challenges those.

It's you (and the whole you, including political leanings, vices and personality triats) and the beast, but until that humanity score drops it's still mostly you. A vampire that felt the desire to beat up the homeless is going to be worse once embraced, not better, because the beast wants him to give in.

"How long do you think a vampire can keep ties to their old human lives, and when do they just become a straight-up backstabbing vampire with no connection to any people or place?

If I look at Bloodlines, LaCroix is a fuck and he's been alive only about 200 years - he maintains an aristocratic facade, but I doubt he was that much of a fuck when he was alive. But there's that anarch that grumbles about Damsel reminding him too much of what he fought in 'nam, so he'd only be about 50 or 60 years old. Nines also developed his ideaology during the Depression years. But Jack doesn't seem to have much ties to his past - he's gone from a pirate to a biker down to his way of talking, and while he's still rebellious that doesn't seem to be that much due to his past, but due to his way of living.

Granted, the oldest of those vampires we get to know were only about 400 years, so maybe it takes even longer than that to really lose your connections to things?"

Well Jack has been alive for 400 years, and was a traveller even back then. Any ties he would have had that could have survived would have to be symbolic. Any person he know was probably dead at the time of his embrace anyway (He was near 40 in a profession where most people don't make it to that age)

But there is no indication he's changed much, he's maintained his humanity and personality through the cause. Same as Nines.
Nines said that he's the only one who hasn't become dust or switched sides, those who switched sides are the type who become inhuman elders. Nines kept grounded because the cause itself keeps him grounded.

I honestly think it's a great mechanic. There are a lot of mechanics that should have been retrofitted into old world of darkness, and the bonds tying you to your humanity being an integral part of your descent into vampirehood is one of them.

Humanity represents your connection to basic humanity, it's not just a karma meter. The ties to your former life are tied to certain levels of humanity, and they are what keeps you grounded. If you fall enough, If you lose the ties to those things, you also lose your ties to humanity. Once you stop caring about those things... well, you've lost a bit of who you used to be.
It also makes the vampire story a more personal one. Instead of vampires just instantly ditching their old life for Jyhad, because that's more practical."

Well what sort of ties are these? Ideologies or moral codes I could understand, but in older editions it seemed like most vampires faked their deaths because it was easier than trying to explain to their family, their old friends, their old coworkers what they'd become. Keeping a family together was a strange practice.

And for me, it comes as something of a disappointment. Part of my problem is that I always play the good guy - even in VtM that would likely be true, but at least there would be some pressure to become a hunter, to sever your ties with humanity on some level aside from what mementos you keep for yourself. Making it so that it's a struggle to remain human feels more...dull. I'd prefer skipping straight to what my character became, not the struggle to get there."

Touchstones tend to be tangible, real. But if your ST okays it, there's no real reason why it can't be an abstract thing.
The thing is, its not like you have to hang out with your touchstone. There's no rule that says you have to go say "'sup my man?" It is entirely possible that you faked your own death when you became a vampire, that's...fine.
But you still care about things, and those things that you care about are the touchstones.

When you stop caring about those objects it's a manifestation that a big part of who you were as a human is no more.

Maybe your touchstone is your sister. Let's call her "Emma". You could either be one of those vampires who say hi to Emma every once in a while, but you could also be the sort who ,every new moon, sit in an unlit car across the street from her new house, watch her and her kids through the window. Just to check if they're okay, y'know?
That's your touchstone.

Then one day, you... just sort of stop showing up.
In the beginning maybe you didn't have time. Your boss is 600 year old and eats people who don't show up on time. Then maybe the business became an excuse... then maybe you stopped even bothering with the excuses. You don't even think about her (Ella? Erica?) anymore, got a new life now, well... you say "Life". You didn't even notice she moved to the retirment home in Florida.
That's you losing touch with your touchstone."

Maybe it's an object.
Maybe your uncle left you an antique watch, it used to just be a nice little thing. You thought about pawning it to buy dope once or twice, but... y'know, it just felt like you shouldn't.
Well you don't do dope any more, and you still hang on to that watch. You still think about pawning it every once in a while, but it still doesn't feel right. Sometimes you polish it, maybe oil it a bit. After your embrace you tend to keep it in your pocket. It just feels like it belongs there.

Then maybe one day while you're draining some poor dumbass dry who was dumb enough to go into a dark alley... you drop it, and you don't go back to pick it up.

Maybe it's a plac.e
Like think of the really old school vampires, your tzimices and so on who still resides in their ancient family estates carrying on the old family name.
Like who the hell have even heard of the Whocaresskis of the lower Germantownia. But, even though the family line is technically dead, and the house technically owned by some trust which if you trace it back far enough is owned by some Swiss holding company...

>Thaumaturgy isn't useless, it's a cheap way to get a lot of stuff. But in terms of power it's very low on the totempole, and since you still have to buy the paths at 4x and the main discipline as a normal discipline (Path of blood, which is just generally really underwhelming) it's less versatile unless you've been playing for a while.

Are you serious? There are stupidly good rituals and they don't even cost no XP to learn whatsoever.

A single level 3 ritual not only immunizes you against all physical damage but completely no-sells Celerity, Potence, Obtenebration 3-4, Protean 2, 4, 7, Quietus 2, 3, 4, 5, Serpentis 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, Vicissitude 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

Path of Blood underwhelming? At level 3 you can temporarily become a 3rd generation vampire granted you started at gen 7 or 8

A single ritual level 2 is free Obfuscate 2/3 invisibility but much better, and nobody without Auspex 3+ can detect you

A ritual level 2 lets you soak fire and sunlight with stamina...

A ritual level 1 will give you -2 to all WP rolls and immunize you against all types of frenzies, and add +2 to the diff of anyone attacking you which uses WP as difficulty"

I worry I'm going to come off as entirely derogatory, and I don't want that to be the case. This is not bad shit. You're making a really strong case for it, and I could see players making use of it - hell, I bet people even kind of made use of it unofficially before the system was actually put in place, just to add a little flavor to their characters.

But it's still a system being forced on me, not a choice. And there's something in its implication that irritates me - this idea that a vampire would need these connections to maintain their humanity. Extreme example, but if my family were all murdered, my house burned down, and I moved to a completely new country, I don't think that'd make me any less human, right? I can maintain my morality and my sense of who I am even if I didn't have those metaphorical touchstones. There's even some Lasombra vampire that's long since forgotten his past life, but he can at least go 'I know who I am, and I was whatever would lead to that.' I don't even know how much humanity he had, but that seems like a decent viewpoint for keeping a hold of who you are.

Something I liked about the impression I always got of WoD was this idea of...flowing, I suppose. Above normal humans, alongside normal humans - you can still keep being a normal human as much as you care to pay for a coffee even if you just hold it, have some smalltalk about things you no longer need to care about, keep up with the news and read a good book. Like a secret agent, only it's not as much a double life as what you chose to make of yours - are you going to be cold and professional all the time, or are you going to act like an average person when you're not on the clock?"

It's honestly anoying to listen to, and unless we have someone else hanging around, you have told me to fuck off a few times too.

No, I'm doing it on purpose because I hate right wing nerd fucks.

As for real discussion:
My favorite clan is the Assamites; in spite of their stereotypical treatment of arabs and Islam, I think they fleshed out the clan enough to make them more than just a caricature. The bits where they think of themselves as the judges of Kindred, and the discrepancies between the "official" history and Assamite history make them compelling. I wish Assamite sorcery was more fleshed out, though, as well as more of their relationship with the Salubri - it seems to me that they were historically friends, so shouldn't Salubri fleeing persecution in Europe been able to find refuge in the Middle East?

Perhaps, though, I'm biased, seeing as my family's from Egypt."

I think it's a rare man who could move to an new place, have his entire family die, and everything he ever knew burned to a crisp, and not end up with some serious identity issues.

But even then, the game doesn't say "You are less human because you lost those things". It says "It's harder to stay connected to humanity, without anything to tie you to it" You get a mallus to your degeneration rolls without a touchstone, but you don't lose all your humanity instantly.
You can even still buy humanity. It's entirely possible to be at humanity 9 with a lost touchstone (Although if you have humanity 9, you're bound to start making some connections to humanity on your own)

And I guess the "Flowing" thing is why I like V:TR's system of humanity over V:TM. Because in old world of darkness vampries have this entirely parallel system that never really interacts with humanity in any real way. Getting entirely tangled in vampire politics is the norm, and sitting down to pretend to have a coffee is not something you have any incentive to do.
With the way V:TR handle it there IS an incentive to do so. Especially because humanity is a measure of your conection to humanity, rather than just a strict karma meter. Isolation and seperation from human society are "Sins" against humanity just as much as violence. Maintaining your humanity requires actively staying human.
A sin against humanity 7 would be not interacting with a human being for a week."

Setites are actually the most versatile of neutral clans, both in terms of what can you be and character samples.

>Path of Blood underwhelming? At level 3 you can temporarily become a 3rd generation vampire granted you started at gen 7 or 8

That is not as helpful as you think it is. It gets you two things, people can't Dominate you and you have a easier time blood buffing. But "After expending a blood point and rolling for success, the vampire can divide successes between effectively lowering his generation by one per success or giving the effect a duration of one hour per success." So six successes on diff 6 on a willpower roll, of which you can't spend willpower points on willpower rolls.

Even without that you can normally blood buff to one above trait max, and go over that short term as along as you keep paying blood per round. Seeing as you are a Tremere that is likely going to be 12 blood points just to get your stat to all 6 in the first place. The Path of Blood level 3 is just paying one more blood to pay more blood."

Vampires elude detection because, to everyone else, they're just pale people. As long as a vampire isn't actively drinking blood, using disciplines, being unable to eat food, etc, there's nothing to give them away except a thermal camera or stuff like Auspex - but now we're talking about using blood.

>obversely how do vampires hunt and detect intruders in their domain with and without the use of blood
In a Camarilla city, the Prince could assign certain vampires to "guard duty," and it'd be their job to find out if the aggravated assault that resulted in huge amounts of blood loss that just hit the local papers is normal gang violence or a lost Caitiff. This could be a Brujah who runs a homeless center that's actually spying for him, Nossies hacking government surveillance, Ventrue with police ghouls, Toreador with contacts in organized crime, etc."

I'd imagine that that's exactly the position that, for example, a Salubri would inhabit - in return for easing the pain of the curse, a Nossie'd let a Salubri stay hidden in their domain. You could have variations on that theme, basically - the "hidden vamp's" allies or friends like them more than they like the Primogen/Prince/Camarilla."

Yeah, I was reading the book again - didn't remember how that worked. Think I'd play it that you frenzy, but instead of you rolling to temporarily wrest back control, you'd just have to roll to prevent exceptionally bad results of frenzy or something, like fighting in Elysium.

I dunno, there's gotta be another way."

With instinct can't you roll each turn to try and control your actions (read direct the beast.) Couldn't you just leave or something when you frenzy in that case?"

I can't think of many scenarios where you'd "bait" an elder into a frenzy without getting ripped to shreds either before managing to do so or during the frenzy. Because in general you don't want to be next to a frenzying elder.
Only way I could see it working somewhat is if a Malkavian uses his Voice of Madness but that can also result in Rötschreck which is far more "useful" for you"
