The thread for talk on all things World of Darknes The last thread hit the bump limit, you can find it here: >>313643

Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition, or just Vampire V, has started to make the rounds and people... are not all that impressed. Most of the good is outweighed by the bad, but what's your take on this?

Meanwhile, White Wolf has been releasing a series of videos on Vampire V. In them one of the head writers, Matthew Dawkins (also known as the Gentleman Gamer), talks about the lore playing the role of a vampire himself. In the first video he talks about what has happened between The editiosn of the game.

no fatchicks

for a group of people claiming to be degenerates, harlots, hedonists, sensates and perverts (literally 55% of their keywords) sure is boring up in here. I think they said all these big words but really they meant faggots.

(Whatever happened to vampires being unnatural preditors who lusts in life were replaced by politics and killing again). I have no idea why anyone would embrace the following:

Perverts

Pedofiles

Degenerates

Etc

even if you could make a good argument that they would effectively stop being those things after the embrace.

Fascism in Play

Vampire: The Masquerade is not a fascist-friendly game. If you are a neo-Nazi, "alt-righter", or whatever you’re calling yourself nowadays, we urge you to put this book down

and call someone who you trust to talk about where you went so wrong in your life.

That said, Kindred culture is inherently monstrous. Part of the political horror of Vampire: The Masquerade is surviving in a culture that worships the Bad Old Ways. Large parts of Kindred society (especially the Camarilla and the Sabbat) adhere to cults of tradition, ascribes to the idea of humiliating their enemies with overwhelming wealth and force, and praises religious fundamentalism

or even pre-modern ideals like feudal rule.

Many Kindred are old enough to remember WWII in detail and are bound to have opinions on what’s going on in the world right now. Even so, it’s pretty easy to steer the game away from totalitarian perspectives.

Emphasize the differences between individual vampires, and between factions as well as inside factions. Tell stories about infighting, surprising kindness, and new ideas. Play thin-bloods, Caitiff, Anarchs, or even Camarilla members in a Hellene city where most of the Ivory Tower’s traditions have been adapted to suit the present. Another way is to play is to portray Kindred society in all its malicious (and fascist) glory, but let the player characters oppose the system, from the inside or from without.

What if someone wants to play a fascist, though, or a Storyteller wants to introduce a fascist SPC? There are plenty of those throughout the World of Darkness — monsters, but many with pretty faces. They can be a tragic villain, or a former friend who fell, or even someone who the player characters think of as an ally. They might be the Brujah neo-Nazi, the far-right Ventrue billionaire, or the Tzimisce eugenicist.

Whatever face they present, the player characters should be given the satisfaction

of redeeming or destroying them eventually.

After all, the player characters are something unique and special — something fascists cannot abide.

Remember: playing a character whose opinions you oppose can be a great way to understand how supremacist ideas work and how to spot and fight them in the real world.

Fictionally experiencing seductive perspectives like blaming the Other, conforming to norms and fighting for a grand purpose, can help you spot these tendencies in yourself and others and diminish their power over you.

This is all in character, of course. At the time of writing, the real world is currently inundated with far-right fascist ideologies being given free reign by wellmeaning people who want to preserve civility.

If you see people at your table opening up with altright talking points, we encourage you to shut that shit down. If you become uncomfortable with a storyline in game because of what’s happening out of game, use one of the techniques listed here.

You are not obligated to tolerate fascists in-game or out-of-game. This game is a way to tell stories about understanding and perhaps fixing some of the darkness in our own world.

Use that to your advantage.

Strange that the Tzimisce is named 4 times in the whole book.

Always only in a passing sentence.

0. They are not playable (as are Lasombra, Giovanni, Ravnos, Banu Haqim and Setite Ministry also no further information on those).

1. They were part of the Trinity (Loresheet: Trinity)

2. They were a high clan (Loresheet: High Clan)

3. Fascism in Play (Appendix III)

Somone who reads only this book has no Idea what or who a Tzimisce is, except that they are some evil fascists that are no longer part of the community, then again: All Vampire Clans seem to only be differentiated by their choice of fashion.

Also the layout and style is quite inconsistent.

Appendix I,II,3 in the TOC: Appendix I, II, III in the book.

Not all clans follow the formula Picture with Bullet points.

Almost everything written screams "Play Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines and you will understand everything", because without that knowledge some things make no sense whatsoever.

>>387670

>>387671

Not that anon, but I can talk about it a bit. A new mechanic to the drinking of blood involves Resonance. The stronger the emotions of the vessel you feed on, the more potent the drink is. If the emotions are very strong from someone who's very emotional or supremely fucked up, you'll experience what is known as Dyscrasia. Named after Hippocrates' term for an imbalance of the humors, this grants a temporary boon ranging from adding dice to rolls, regaining Willpower if you do something, doing more damage and so on. This last until you either feed again or reach Hunger 5 (more on this later). To gain the effect of the Dyscrasia, you'll need to either kill and drain the victim completely or feed off of someone over the course of three nights (not consecutive for some reason). Each of the ten Disciplines in the core book are linked to one of the four humors, with animal blood covering the final two. Note that animal blood never grants Dyscrasias:

- Choleric: Celerity and Potence

- Melancholy: Fortitude and Obfuscate

- Phlegmatic: Auspex and Dominate

- Sanguine: Blood Sorcery and Presence

- Animal blood: Animalism and Protean

Resonance is how intense a particular humor is within a person. This can either be negligible (doesn't do much), Fleeting (works with blood alchemy), Intense (one additional die when rolling for a Discipline linked to that humor until the next drink or when reaching Hunger 5) or Acute, which means you found yourself a Dyscrasias. Unless the vessel you're feeding from was designed by the Storyteller in advance, the ST rolls to see what you're feeding from (1d10: 1-5 is Negligible, 6-8 is Fleeting (roll an additional 1d10 for Resonance), 9-10 is Intense, which is an additional roll: 1-8 is just Intense, and 9-10 is Acute). It is possible to change someone's Resonance through either roleplaying or rolling: punching someone in the face before feeding will turn them Choleric, sucking their dick before sucking their blood will turn them Sanguine and so on.

Hunger has been significantly retooled in Vampire V. It is rated from 0 to 5, no matter whether you're a 4th or 14th generation vampire. At 0 Hunger you're completely fed, at 5 Hunger you're ravenous. For every point of Hunger you replace one of the dice in all of your dice pools with a Hunger Die: a d10 with a different color or one that's rolled separately. You don't want these to end up on either 1 or 10: if you roll a failure where you have at least a single 1 on your Hunger dice you'll start to act on your Compulsion (think various types of Frenzy); if you roll a 10 you'll get a Messy Critical which means that you'll succeed in a messy way (you pick a lock by ripping it out of the door, your fistfight with a mortal ends with you punching a hole in them etc). Feeding off of someone reduces your Hunger by a number of points: check the table for more info.

Personally, I kind of like the Dyscrasia mechanic even though it slows the game down a bit. Hunger... I'm not a fan of the Hunger dice.

It is literally designed to only be fashion.

Kindred Fashion: (This is the chapter directly after "What is a RPG and What is Vampire, the Camarilla etc")

Black is still the new black. Feeding is messy and bloodstains are easier to hide on dark fabrics.

It is that simple.

Toreador tastemakers in the fashion industry return to black each season for this very reason. This means light-colored clothes, especially white, become status symbols.

A Brujah in a white tracksuit signals “I’m so skilled I don’t spill a drop.” But wearing light colors is always a risk, and many Kindred consider the practice as asking for trouble, no matter how tight their blood-drinking game is.

Fashion is a secret language. Just like mortals, Kindred signal affiliation, attitude, and ideology through their dress, both in the street and in Elysium.

A rose print dress screams “I’m a diva” to those who know about clan iconography, and attire made from trash and rags marks you as a Nosferatu – or possibly a Malkavian.

A subtle Edwardian cut to the jacket or pullover you wear among mortals hints at your age, and the tenderly preserved 1905 dress you wear to court tells neonates to respect their elders.

Kindred dress very differently in the street and in Elysium.

In public, the Masquerade is on, and looking like an antiquated royal is usually a very bad idea. Vampires are stealth hunters. They blend in with their prey. Most are masked with a human cover, and all have a pattern of predation.

These two factors dictate their street look.

A Sandman burglar wears trainers and black Adidas with a hoodie, but a leech with the same modus operandi who feeds from a psych-ward dresses like an orderly.

A scene queen stalking the psychobilly scene spends an hour every evening on their pompadour and tattoos, while a minimal techno fiend would never dr eam of wearing a band T-shirt and has daymares about not getting into Berghain.

Only the handful of Kindred who still stalk the goth scene dress like “vampires” in public.

Elysiums and havens are a whole other story. In these no-Masquerade areas the Kindred flaunt their age and monstrous nature.

Here the complex neofeudal codes of their society rule, and the harpies wear Elizabethan dresses or haute couture creations that would make Lady Gaga gasp for breath.

It’s all part of the status game.

Arriving from the street into the lair of an elder is a humbling experience – no less so, if the guest kneels in their black jeans and T-shirt before an ageless monster in a chalk-white dress made from human skin.

Anarchs tend to despise the need for embellishment as a typical Camarilla thing, instead staying true to a single style, gradually changing through the decades:

a modern street interpretation of what they are and their personal history, carefully maintaining their human mask.

Baggy hip-hop fashion with memento mori bling and woodcut style tattoos recall the 1500s for the Landsknecht.

A World War II bomber jacket for the rabble taxi driver with a history.

Crust punk rivet armor for the Mongol Gangrel warlord.

Most wear perfectly ordinary everynight street clothes with hint at their nature understood only by those who know exactly what to look for.

With all this bullshit going on, I don't know where to turn to find local players for my games. It seems that they're trying to kill off any outside interest in these sorts of things aside from a 15-25 year old female demographic so who the hell is DMing for them? I have never ever seen a girl DM

I always saw World of Darkness as being a route for playing comical grimdark, where you watch Blade a few times and shitpost with your buddies over who can make the most tortured backstory to an angsty teen goth vampire/schizo uncle/the guy in the sewers from Bloodlines who was an actor or something

What's the point in a RPG system if you're going to dump all the content?

In Call of Cthulhu 7th edition I remember a stupid disclaimer bitching about racism and whatnot and how all the character art featured token negroes shucking and jiving together; isn't segregating a historical setting from conflict and older values ruining the point? These fucking people want to make every single situation "CURRENT YEAR BUT PEOPLE WEAR X". 1920s is just "check it out, i have a bob cut!!! lol im an empowered flapper bitch"

I'm trying to write my own campaign for Call of Cthulhu and I find that outside of the stat system and some bits of combat, I've scrapped the entire mythos in the process. No 1920s setting, no redditor take on Lovecraft, no tomes or spells anything else. Have to make it all myself. The only redeeming factor is that someone at least put a semblance of effort into the weapons index and I'm assuming said someone moved on to Delta Green- and from there, moved to military fanfiction ala Jace Connors.

Seriously, half the damn agent's handbook is just some guy jacking off onto a pile of Purple Hearts from a pawn shop while watching Generation Kill on repeat.

Obama being elected caused a Glimmer, a boost of souls that leave Arcadia and enter the Autumn Realm, effectively increasing the number of Changelings in the world. In contrast, the Thallain can enter the world through anti-Glimmers, caused by great misery which lets them avoid the Silver Ban that kept them away from the world. The Silver Ban was flat-out broken by 9/11 and the aftermath, which let them come back in massive numbers. While it would be interesting to see Trump's election cause a Glimmer because people truly hope for America to be made great again, we all know that the writers of Onyx Path won't see it that way.

>Yes quadsman, WW fucked over lots of clans in the switch from old WoD to Nu WoD.

While it is true that V:TR retooled the clans and reduced them from thirteen to five, it's nothing like it was done here. The Clans in V:TR are more archetypes (The Vampire As Dark Seductor, The Vampire As Undead Lord, The Vampire As Soul-Scarring Horror, etc.) than entities in and of themselves like in its predecessor. On that note, it went from having Clans as their own political entities under a Sect (or as independent entities) was retooled into having the Y-Axis of Covenants to cover political affiliations. It's an stylistic revamping designed to allow the players more freedom with their background without the capeshit-tier lore bloat of the old Clans and Sects and to make for more city-to-city play rather than the "ancient global conspiracy" theme of V:TM. Of course, you still have the option to go for Tier 2 or 3 if you want, see: Danse Macabre. Here with Vampire V they're just chopping up shit for arcane reasons I can't begin to understand.

Is it just me or did even the fag presenting it get sick of it towards the end there? This didn't have quite the same enthusiasm as the others.

Now that you mention it, I did get that sort of vibe.

I think the former is the 'correct' pronunciation, but the latter is what people actually use.

The first is the correct pronounciation when going with the spanish root.

it's not what you think. The guy who wrote Sorcerer may be a hippie when it comes to rpg design, but it is mostly about how you could apply mechanics differently to men and women at the table (because it was written so long ago there were only two genders and they were called "sexes")

>Onyx Path doesn't like the Jews very much;

Onyx Path consists of people (some goyim, some Chosen) who have been screwed over by Jews many times. So they have trouble forgetting how their oxen got gored. Jews frequently prey on their fellow Jews. Do you think the Jews inside Onyx Path have forgotten their resentment?

The whole "vampire" craze of the 1990s is not aging well in a world where people know what "Pizzagate" refers to. They might as well release "Cannibal: the Blackmailing."
