But............... the rats :58_83:


I just love eating the rats. It was the first feature that I first liked in the game and it would make me feel rather awkward to not be able to do so as a ventrue.

Minor thing though. I might just go ahead and play that Ventrue any day now.

You know you were supposed to just drink its blood, right? You were not supposed to eat it. Of course you would feel awkward about it. Sigh... :D


I just started playing as a Venture. I like it so far. I have no idea why I haven't done that until now. Usually I prefer to play as a Tremere or Brujah and I wouldn't say my playstyle changed all that much. Only thing that annoys me about Venture is its hair. I would say there is a mesh or texture related issue with it. Most people probably didn't even notice it, but it annoys me each time I see it.

Dominate is fun, fortitude is op.

What about the rats? Unless I'm a Nosferatu I only even think about eating rats in the warrens. That is when I decide to take the long haul.

Could it be that blowing up the lab and killing the guy doesn't count as good behaviour? :chinscratch:


Probably doesn't matter any more, good behaving boy Barabus consumed them all  :sad:

Not to worry!  When a vampire eats something, his body rejects it and it is, um, "coughed" (yeah, that's it, coughed! :) ) out undamaged.

I see now... that's how bishop Vic invented that pestilence, he was just eating everything, bloated bodies, maggot-ridden mortal shells and stuff and then coughed, and I was wondering, a coughing vampire WTF  :chinscratch:

Vomiting blood
Choking on tongue
The stench from the guts
Is filling the lungs

For my fifth playthrough I wish to rp as a Ventrue.  The youtuber Primogen uploaded this interesting video on how to play a Ventrue.
[...]

TL;DR

(or rather: TL; DW =  too long; didnt watch)

You gotta be kidding me - over 20 min of talking about playing a VENTRUE ? Pffft !!!

My rule for playing Ventrue is very simple: spent as little XP as possible, so the game stays at least a bit of a challenge.

Ventrue is the easiest of the clans .. none of your disciplines break masquerade, you get two of the strongest disciplines (Fortitude and Presence) which are uber effective even on tier 2 already, you can already have Persuade 6 at character creation and there is no other real challenge either if you just follow the usual rules of leveling (such as getting some lockpicking and stealth).

So my main problem is really that Ventrue is so damn boring and just too easy.

No way ! He cant possibly be that vengeful that he minds getting killed, can he ? I'm sure he just forgot about it.
