Quote from: Deliveratorno one should be able to be F in the blood column and higher than, probably D or *maybe* C in the Social Class column. Right?
QuoteBlood & Sorcery Priority A – Vampire and More Your Blood is mingled with some other mythical beast or devil that makes you even more powerful. All Nine Vagaries available. While in sunlight you cannot use any vagaries and can be killed as a human. Class Priority F – Outcast You are a creature of the sewer, a peasant among the undead. In the war you were not asked to serve but if you did were sent to fight among the ghouls and mindless zombies. You begin play with no money. Hunting rights are routinely denied because few vampire lords want your lot in their territory.As long as your vampiric sate is not made public, you can walk among mortal nobility for a time but eventually someone will uncover your heritage.
QuoteBlood & Sorcery Priority F – Thinblood You were bitten by a weak vampire or perhaps only stole a true vampire’s blood and gained immortality through human ritual. One vagary is open to you. While in sunlight you cannot use any vagaries, can be killed as a human, take -5 or half (whichever is more) to all pools and must move at half of your normal movement. along withClass Priority A – Vampire Lord You are the lord of a keep. In the war you commanded undead legions and razed cities so you could bathe in your enemies’ blood. Your holdings grant you 3d10•10 Gold Suns monthly income. You have 10 immediate servants who can be trusted within your lair, a small garrison of warriors and several hundred serfs who live in mortal terror of your name but usually do your bidding without question. You have lived for over a century. You have hunting rights wherever you please. Only the most powerful and ancient of vampires disputes your claims.
Quote from: ValamirMost Excellent.I think the blood needs are far too high, however. That's ALOT of blood. There's about 5 liters of blood in the body, and in an age before blood transfusion losing any notable amount of that will result in death. So you're looking at 1 death a week or a dozen really woozy living donors per week. If there are more than a handful of vampires per human city, its going to be noticed. I'd make it at most per month.Either a large amount but a longer period of time, or a smaller amount more frequently depending on which is the feel you're going for.
Quote from: PakaAnd of course the humans continue their hunt, bolstered by their recent victory over our combined might. They put on a brave face behind their holy symbols, drag us into the sunlight, put stakes in our hearts.
Quote from: NegilentHaving printed and read through this I've got one question.Why the WOD angle?Quote from: PakaAnd of course the humans continue their hunt, bolstered by their recent victory over our combined might. They put on a brave face behind their holy symbols, drag us into the sunlight, put stakes in our hearts. At first impression, from the first part narrative I got the impression that the Vampire Lords ruled their own country, weakened and beset by enemies. But their own lands none the less.So why hide from other humans, unless infiltrating their lands?If your premise is how much blood will you spill to live forever, then would you not be better served by allowing the characters to revel in their power instead of hiding in the shadows?K
