Sort of, from what I can tell the two final bosses actually scale with your level - with the pre-final being significantly weaker than you and the true final being 1-4 levels above you

Also I was a hella good doctor man until the end of chapter 6 and then I ate everyone with every clue unlocked (it took like 40 minutes of sitting through the kiling animations) and became a god.

Having 120 k+ exp to spend feels really really good by the way.

Thelma best character <3

But for real what killed it for me was the voice acting was legitimately awful, the combat was meh but I was expecting it to be. There were like, 3 good voice actors in that, and they all had so few lines. Elizabeth and the MC were terrible.

While I work on the next chapter of Disciples, you should let me and D fight Barabus.

It has been a long time since D got his PC death fix LOL  ;D

“This game will be going on hiatus for a few months”

*Three years later*

“Hey let’s start this back up”

I guess this is BZ’s way of subtly telling me it’s never too late to continue a game

Seriously though, I know that is a hundred times harder to start something back up compared to starting something new. It takes a huge effort just to try to go back through to see all the players and threads and can be too daunting. It took me a while to jump back into Disciples after that last break and I'm just now starting to feel like I know where I'm going with it again.

So, we super-love this setting of yours and especially our characters.

But maybe it's just too deep at this point to slog through the last bit of the current adventure.

That said, perhaps writing this one off and fast forwarding the game into the modern world might be an answer.

Kiril and Barabus could have escaped and we wonder where they are to this day. Both make excellent Antagonists, because everyone wants to kill them haha!

We caught the guy and proved our innocence and thus started the crusades and the formation of the Camarilla and Sabbat, etc.

We could have an XP party, build out our characters to god level aberrations, decide where they ended up - and retire them as Elders and Princes to play new Vamps - or keep up the super OP power-gaming in the new setting lol!

Anyway, whatever you do or don't do - this was the best fun I ever had playing Vampire the Masquerade by far!

Also, I blame you for the whole Vampony thing. We would not have been roped into it, if this Glorious Epic had still been going on at the time!  Our hunger was just too great. ;D

The main problem i'm having is just Seth's disappearance. Kiril is an extremely intensive character to play and RP correctly given that he's also Husayn, has one of the most important/complex mortal characters (Barabus) as a servant, and is prince of one of the most important cities in the setting. His character also has a critical role to play with the Assamite faction.

And him leaving the game actually Farked me super hard because I also have to RP Kiril as well as everything else now, and if I don't then all the characters i've built and associated with him, especially Barabus, will fade into the background/out of the game altogether.

It's just so much to keep track of at this point, and i'm sure you guys noticed but it was getting to the point that each update was taking me 1-2+ hours, and that was AFTER I just started fudging rolls to make things cooler/less stressful to keep track of (which i'm also sure you all noticed)

So what is the logical outcome of Kiril/Husayn prospering to the modern world? Can Kiril eventually become Husayn completely?

What does the demon in Barabus ultimately want? Would Kiril/Husayn eventually stop him if unchecked?

But yeah, the cast of participants in this was certainly on an epic scale.

Honestly, I'd have to look through the setting notes again to really get all the details, but given Seth leaving I would just have his consciousness be subsumed entirely by Husayn after Husayn sees how weak and twisted Kiril was becoming. Something along the lines of "You aren't worthy of being Basilio's son"

Barabus stuff is too spoilery for me to reveal

Honestly I wouldn't even be all too opposed to continuing, I just wasn't sure if you guys would even want to given it's been a couple years since my last update and I would have to basically fudge the end of this chapter, basically retcon Kiril's participation by having Husayn take over and leave, and bring us up to the next one.

Ah, you mean you're not sure you're going to GM again after Disciples?

Not that I wouldn't GM again, just that I'd have run out of plot direction for Disciples at that point. I don't think I could ever not GM something as long as players are interested!  ;D

Though I do take a short break from it now and then.

We are really only missing Sethaniel. Prince never really played to begin with and cdriver1 is in Steeple's belly haha!

Maybe Killa would join - or another from CYS if needed.

Well, it was always really BZ, Forge, Aman and Daed who were the core four of the playthrough, though I don't know if D is around anymore. but unlike Seth D will have left me with two really good NPCs to make use of with Saladin being pretty awesome while not being too important to the story, and Lucius being absolutely ridiculously insane and an awesome way to personify Kupala

I actually like the idea of having us just decide what happened in the next 50-100years, and then starting new Childer with the backstory set up. I feel like that's a lot easier for you drak and also a lot of fun where we're playing VtM but BHB-VtM, with our crazy characters being tied to the metaplot.

Both work for me.

Man, a little over halfway through re-reading chapter one, I think my favourite moment remains Lucien asking a farmer for a lady of the night and being offered a female pig

Close contender: one of the sidequests, D says he and Ennius would alter someone’s memories, Kiril asks if he could even do that, Ennius in the background shaking his head no
