So, does anyone know which clans will be available to play at the start? I hope we get at least the same number as we did in the original. I would hate to see Bloodlines game dragged through corporate video gaming industry practices so that some clans become DLC only.

Mark my words: lasombra will try to overthrow the ventrues from the camarilla leadership. And I bet they'll succeed.

Yeah, but nobody expects the Malkavian Inquisition.  :dancecut:

I don't remember exactly, but I think there will be only 5 clans at release. But they already confirmed that any additional clans will be free!

God, I wish to play as a Tzimisce and Setite.

The main website for the game has tabs for the clans. There are 5 normal clan tabs and one that says "bonus." My guess is "bonus" is where the clans added to the game later on after release. It would appear that the backgrounds might be clues as to which clans will be out at launch. It looks like Tremere, Brujah, Ventrue, Toreador, and probably Nosferatu. I say "probably" because it's an indoor hallway like in a warehouse or something. The "bonus" one looks like possibly a psychiatrist's office because of the clock on the wall, the few books on low shelves, the chairs, and most importantly, the various diplomas on walls...so I'm guessing Malkavian. So it's looking like Malks and Gangrel will be sometime after launch.

To be fair, though, Malkavian is a poor first-playthrough clan if it's in any way similar to the first game (bonkers lines and double-speak that you won't always comprehend unless you already know what the original replies you could give were, and spoilers via your character's madness), so I'm not too concerned about having them at launch. I do hope that if the game does well, they might add some Independent and Sabbat clans. Followers of Set and stuff could be really cool...or Tzimisce if we're actually allowed to do fleshcrafting.

I have the feeling that this game will have a "chapter one" with driven style, and you have no faction.
Then a "chapter 2" where you must chose a clan to join (they will expand this part adding clans eventually) and a boss that give you quests. (this part will add big replayability to the game)
I don't know what they're planning then...

I'm not totally sure what you are asking but I'm gonna hazard a guess. The Lasombra when they were first introduced were more evil Ventrue with shadow powers, as time went on and they became playable they added more stuff to make them seem less flat; primarily this is having Pirate Lasombra and Priest Lasombra (pretty similar to the Cappadocian monk shtick but they ended up extinct so).

Good luck trying to diablerize a Tzim. That could end badly in so many ways haha. Especially if you have to show up with nothing but a FORK because you have the "No Fangs" thinblood trait LOL And aren't they usually Bishops or whatever? I believe Andrei was the Bishop in the last game. #BasementTzimPTSD   :cry:

If there are only 5 clans on release that's still leaving a lot of main ones out. So guessing Sabbat will be nil.

Mmh. Anyhow I was talking also of the other quote (the malk inquisition)....

One thing is for sure, unless the choice is not really part of the story and only in the hands of the player (as in, we get to choose, but in the game it's somehow presented as  the only choice our characters can make), it's going to take some serious thought in order to RP choosing to become a Nos.   :razz:
Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

I am getting the feeling that Brian was given creative freedom during development of the game. At least, that is the vibe I detect.

"You start as a “thin blood” — a baby vampire" Is he getting thin blood mixed up with caitiff or 13th generation?
Can thin blood become 13th through diablerie?

Edit: didn't see the 2nd page, it seems you do play thin blood which I guess means that you won't get to choose a clan sadly.
Seems to me that blood alchemy is going to play a big role in this game which I guess ties in well with the special resonance of blood.
