Actually, I am simply verifying what Florence said in an earlier post. I don't know that Braid did this; it may have occurred earlier. I just noticed it at that time, as I checked to make sure I got the increase of wits. The Charisma would have been increased when I completed the Isaac quest. I had purchased a total of Persuasion 7 with XP, but my Persuasion indicated a 10 after receiving the gift from Isaac

On the matter of the Rune, I did persuade Strauss to tell me of the Gargoyle's creation. I simply didn't receive it when asking how to deal with the gargoyle. Not that big a deal -- I usually just sell it after persuading the gargoyle to fight for Isaac

It happened to me at level 7, too
But this time I had 8 and it worked normally
Maybe its some sort of curse for number 7  :justabite:

I think that is a misunderstanding of Rik Schaffer's emails to me. He wrote "There was talk early on of an East Los Angeles Hub for the game in one of the numerous production meetings I attended at Troika. I was thinking hispanic influence Nines Rodriquez with Open Season. Open Season would have been that area's main theme." about the new hub and "Hollywood Hub part 2 was basically written the same week as the original Hollywood Hub. The name was a working title, and only because I thought that it would fit nicely wherever Troika ended up using the first Hollywood piece.", which means this is only an alternative he made which didn't get used. I restored it into the warrens, as they are below Hollywood and you walk around long enough to appreciate it :).

Ah, I confused two different things into one thought. My mistake!

Wasn't there also supposed to be a jungle area of some sort?

There is an unused musical piece called "Tikal Jungle", but this could have been intended for a club or similar. There is no hint at all that any part of the game was supposed to play out far away from LA...

Maybe there was meant to be a fake indoor "jungle" someplace? Or maybe while exploring the "concrete jungle" a Malkavian PC could occasionally hallucinate they were in an actual jungle?  :razz:

Playing tremere, doing the Holywood side quest where I have to kill the stripper.

I rob the change machine, lockdown the peepshow, convince the other stripper to leave, and bloodtheft-onehit the stripper.
I get the two xp for killing her and the two extra ones for doing it without witnesses (BTW, one the first two points are notified to me in the pop-ups).

The problem is, when I get back to VV, she will react as if there were witnesses anyway.

This is probably intended, because you used disciplines and VV said "And be careful using Disciplines around the hunter." Technically you can open the console and G.Sin_Sound should be 1. I don't really know why Blood Theft is supposed to be loud enough for Kerri or Flynn to hear though, but then Troika set all Thaumaturgy so.

If that is intended, then I shouldn't get the two extra experience points, I'd say.

You don't get the bonus XP points for being silent, but for killing no innocents like the message says.

Exactly. Innocents... policemen!

(Prince): "[...] And unlike the warehouse, you cannot wholesale slaughter a ship full of lawmen without consequences. [...]"

You take XP for being silent in the Warehouse mission only, i think.

I just reinstalled the 9.8 but when I load the game, it seem to be unpatched. There are no Histories too.

I certainly did something wrong...  :facepalm:

Did you choose plus patch and did you start from the game shortcut?

I have no idea if I did anything specific to set it off, but...

"All Your Base"? Really?  :rofl:

Another question... i tried to install the "Imalia Nossie" skin and for unknown (for me at least) reasons the character seems to be deformed, and i have placed all files in the right way. This is the first time that this happens...
