All the plot twists that could have been ruined  :o

Thanks Berka :)

Now I just hope Aman doesn't download the chronicle PDFs (Ha! I'm joking, the damn things are so unreadable that after I ran them through a PDF converter all I got back was gibberish. No way Aman is patient enough to read them).

So, is this Dark Ages? Or is Transylvania it's own setting? What is the Year?

The starting year is 1198, the story will be set in Transylvania. I'll get more info out when i'm done reading Transylvania By Night (which actually turned up readable and copy-pastable results when I put it through a pdf converter)

The setting is not historically accurate (budapest exists, for one, several centuries before it was created), this is fine. There are 4 primary factions to be considered (at least for the first Act) - Old Tzimisce defending their homeland, a Tzimisce/Nosferatu/Gangrel alliance of princes defending their domain, the Tremere (currently strongest faction in Transylvannia, in an especially brutal feud with the Tzimisce), and the Ventrue (who are also enroaching on the territory with the Tremere and want more influence, as always).

I was sure I locked that thread...

Create your own separate threads on the Character Creation board for questions about your character and your character sheet, the guide thread is just an infodump.

All right, so I guess we should probably decide first whether we're going to be a noble group of vampires that have some sort of allinace or a rough band of brothers united on the streets so that we don't accidentally conflict characters.

I'm more comfortable with upper-class characters like Ventrue or Tremere, but I can be rough too if that's what the party wants to do. My PREFERRED character would be a Tremere, I'd be willing to write the backstory however I need to in order to fit the party. All I have is a preferred class after all.

Oh-nonononono, you all start as neonates and i'll handle you guys joining up, you only know each other cursorily or by reputation before then.

You can be a Tremere - no one has decided to make a Tzimisce yet. If someone else wants a Tzimisce you can settle stuff with them (you either have to have interlocking backstories that justify you tolerating each other or you have to duel to the death)

I'd suggest waiting for me to post all the setting info before you begin with the backstories, but until then make whatever clans you want. I'll handle which faction you join based on that info.

Acceptable (though not very well liked overall).

I'll remind you of:

Note:

Characters in this coterie will have to be able to trust each other - the chronicle spans a planned 8 centuries and a lack of trust or a tendency to backstab will result in it's destruction before even the first century is done. Tremere/Tzimisce combinations are discouraged, though they will be allowed with the proper backstory. Similarly, Ventrue/Brujah combinations are also discouraged. Characters that aremade so that it is inevitable they will betray the cotterie will not be accepted. You are not going to be spies and traitors, you are a group of loyal friends who stick together even when different ideologies will threaten to split you apart through centuries of conflict - or maybe you just stick together because it is in your best and mutual interests to do so, whatever the case, you will have to trust one-another. The first chapter will focus primarily on building this trust, you are expected to make use of it.

Your sires must all be alive. No orphan Annies here, they are necessary for the beginning of the plot to the story. Other than this, your only limitation when constructing your background is the setting of the story.

Well, you can make a Ravnos but just know that it probably won't live long and you'll have to make a new char (if you plan on betraying)

Nosferatu seems your type. With Obfuscate 3 (a discipline all Nosferatu should heavily invest in) you can even hide your ugliness.

So, if you're skimming i'd suggest just Control-F ing "Tzimisce" "Gangrel" "Nosferatu" "Tremere" "Ventrue" "Transylvania" "Kupala" and "Cainites" Read the parts involving them, since it might be important.

I (and my sore fingers) HAVE PREVAILED! It was a pain reformatting all of that but all that's left for you guys is for me to add the important Cainites, and for myself I have to add all the stat blocks. Then I have to read Act 2-12 for the chronicle.

But that's not too bad. You'll all be making your characters while I deal with that.

Doesn't matter if Aman made a Lasombra (or if Seth is also making a Lasombra) - you could all be Lasombra if you wanted. This isn't a "We need a thief" or a "we need a healer" scenario, you could all be fleshcrafting Tzimisce or crazy malks or even just a bunch of Toreador. What's important is that you make good characters, not what clan they're from.

Besides, shadow powers rule and the third Abyss Mystic ritual allows multiple ritual casters for an exponentially more potent summon.

Actually, there's a general rule among the Assamite that they are only to embrace men. There was, like, one female Assamite in Constantinople, and she was a secret weapon against other vampires for the Assamites because it was well known that women weren't embraced by Assamites.

Note: If you're an Assamite, you aren't trusted by any of the factions governing Transylvania, and you will be forced to swear a magically-binding oath of loyalty or even be blood bound if you want to continue on in the chronicle (which is the reason I said Assamites and Followers of Set are not recommended - yes, they both go through the same thing.)

yeah i read that part when reading up on assamites when i made bastian. But bastian was.. well bastian. ^^

But hey, a question for you. Would you allow the marketstands ghouls master to be his sire?


And yes, i agree with you on the awesomeness of lasombras. - and nah, i think its more fun if we didnt have a majority of lasombras. In case we go democrazy or something xD

And i might re-consider being a assmite regarding your latest post. I've only skimmrd trough what you've posted so far.

Oh, it isn't in what i've mentionned so far, it's only brought up in the Chronicle books.

Nope, unfortunately he already has a childer and goals that would force you to betray the cotterie.

However, there's another char that I think would be a good sire... but I have to wait before I reveal him to you since, well, I have to read through all the chronicle books to see if he becomes important in a way that does not permit him to also be your sire.
