*cracks the whip*  Back to the trivia, people!

In the Clannovel Series, this vampire passed up becoming Prince of New York City in favor of the Nosferatu Calebros.

In VTM - Bloodlines, the Mandarin activates a S.W.A.T. team to attack and kill our character during his sadistic "experiments". What is the official designation of this S.W.A.T. team?

In VTM - Redemption, Christof recovers an amulet belonging to which Saint in the depths of the Bonn Silver Mine? And the bonus: What is this saint the saint of?

Redemption is St. Jude, the patron saint of lost causes.

Victoria Ash refuses to become Prince of New York City, leaving everyone bewildered and setting the stage for someone else to take the place. Cock Robin, justicar of clan Nosferatu writes Calebros' name and holds it up and with no other candidates Calebros becomes prince.

"The subject has terminated Belmont team" The Mandarin says.

And I hear Calebros later resigned from the job, but I don't know who took his place. I think the world ended before they could appoint another one.

In the Dark Ages Clannovel Series, the Gangrel vampire Qarakh is the lover of a blood sorceress named Deverra. What bloodline is Deverra?
And the bonus: What portfolio (sphere of influence) does the god for whom this bloodline is named preside over? This is a two-part answer.

In VTM - Redemption, in addition to his slave-trading and favor-mongering, the Ventrue Count Orsi says he is a master of which craft?
And the bonus: His mastery of this craft results in a quest-specific item. What item is this?

In VTM - Bloodlines, Ash Rivers starred in which box-office smash movie mentioned in the game? (Hint: He quotes from this movie after you rescue him from the hunters in the sewers.)
And the bonus: What symbol did the hunters brand onto Ash Rivers' face in the Society of Leopold?

Negative Zero and three (double) crosses in a triangle pattern, one large one on the forehead and two smaller ones under each eye.

Never read the clan novels.  Honestly, was always spending more time in our group's game's metaplot than the canon metaplot.  And have played Redemption too few times to answer trivia questions.  :justabite:

In regards to Count Orsi, I'm not sure but I'm assuming it's theft of vitae because the Aink Sword does this.

Orsi was a master of metalurgy.  He used this expertise to craft a set of shackles out of an "unbreakable alloy" of his own design.  These were given to Christof to bind Luther Black.  Being a Lasombra (who get Potence in-clan) and an Elder to boot, those shackles would have to be made of some stern stuff in order to work as intended.

Fast forward 857 years.  Vukodlak again turns to Orsi's expertise in metalurgy.  Over the centuries, the Ventrue made quite a name for himself as a master of industry.  If his factory in NYC is any indication, the guy must be worth billions.  Like Prince Lacroix, Count Orsi might be a douche but he's a douche who is very good at seeking out opportunities to expand his power and influence.

The only part I wasn't too clear on was wtf was up with the statue that he supposedly had built for the awakening ritual.  Seems like a hell of a lot of effort, when in fact it wasn't even needed at all.  Even Vukodlak blew it off as a minor detail when Christof revealed that the statue was "denied" or something.

After learning more about VTM I'm puzzled at why use shackles when most Lasombra can typically turn into Teneberous form and become intangible( though maybe Orsi did not know about that part), but lets say he did and that Orsi's friends at House De Hexen enchanted the shackles for him somehow, why are they preferable to the good old fashioned stake?

Christof: "We have denied thee Orsi's statue for thy ritual!"
Vukodlak: "I'll live."

One of my favorite lines in the whole game.

Sorry, Signothorn, that's "Orsi is a master of several crafts, but which does he mention specifically?" not "witch-craft". And _username got it and bonus...

I'm probably giving them more credit than is due, but since Luther Black was a priest, maybe he simply refused to learn Obtenebration.  After all, developing that Discipline basically involves opening up your being and absorbing/becoming darkness incarnate in every sense.

He learned it in AoR 2012, Javokis added it.

EASY:
In Redemption, Who is Lily's sire, and what animal did she beg of the coterie when she first saw them?

MEDIUM:
In Bloodlines, what does the ghost say to you while you're climbing through the ventilation shaft? (a lot of people miss this at first, or piece it together soon after)

HARD:
A redheaded soldier from a bygone era is displayed prominently on the cover art of one of the few OWoD crossover books (that is, a tabletop book that involves more than just one Creature: the Thingamajig).  What is his rank?

I'm only going to answer one. Because I can.

2) "Be... careful...!"

EDIT

Alright, I lied, but only because nobody else answered them:

1) Alexandra Ruthven, who asks for "A rat, a little mouse..."

2) See above.

3) I don't have any crossover books... but I'm gonna guess prince, just 'cause.

There are no settings that would be affected by how many posts one makes a day, I'd encourage more by everyone :justabite:

On that note...

1) In the depths of the Cappadocian Monastery in VTM - Redemption, there is a powerful artifact that can be used to open Mercurio's magically-locked sanctum door. What is this item, and to what creature does it belong?

2) In VTM - Bloodlines, Gary Golden starred in several movies he mentioned in the game. Name two of three possible movies.
Hint: In the vanilla "poster quests", he sends you to collect a video tape of one of the movies.

3) In the Gehenna novel for Vampire: The Masquerade, Hardestadt the Younger and Theo Bell make a famous West Coast hotel their base of operations. What is the name of this famous hotel?
Hint: SPOILERS


This is also the location where Theo Bell kills Hardestadt the Younger.

That's a great question because it's not just asking for one movie.  If it were just one movie, it'd be super easy... as you mentioned, it's a quest item.... So the first movie is "Tap Hotel."  Now... it so happens I can answer the rest of this question because my interests tend to be vampires, ww ii planes, ninja (although Miyamoto Musashi gets honorable mention, even tho he wasn't a shinobi), and finally pirates.  Which is why I remember the name to the second movie... "Pirate Town."  Now, though, you've got me thinking there might have been a third one I *don't* remember.

hmmm
